Proper Revision of the
The president has all along advocated
free iron ore, and the House bill makes
it free. The Finance Committee made
tlh? duty 25 cents a ton, and it was sup-po-iod
that, of course, the Democrats
would join with the progrennive Repub
lican to defeat the committee's amend
ment, but, on the contrary, a majority
vf the minority voted for the duty of 2!
cer.lj, and from their expressions would
have urged an even higher duty had
they been in control of the situation.
la the case of lumber it was generally
supposed that the Democrats would
utand with progressive Republicans and
support the amendment offered by Sen-alca-McCumber,
a member of the Fi
naice Committee, who sought to make
lumber free. Instead, a majority of the
Df mooraU voted against the McCumber
: amendment and will doubtless support
the Fin ance Committee amendment
putting on a duty of $1.50 a thousand
feel and would maintain the Dingley
duty of $2 were they able to control the
Stuator Bacon who is outspoken in
his advocacy of "tarilf, for revenue
jaahi," has proposed a greatly increased
doty on long staple cotton and will
doubtless command the support of a
fajority of the Democrats when the
proposition is reached. In the case of
the sugar schedules several Democrats
oU! to maintain the Dutch color star
and against decreasing the diffei
tial. Senator McKmery apoke anain
jpt any reduction of the duties.
When the agricultural schedules were
r?ar hed most of the progressive Repub
licans voted for increased duties on ag-rk-nltural
products, and it is confidently
v.ipeeted that Democrats and progres
jate Republicans alike will endeavor to
retain the duty on hides and even to
rwt it as high as in the Dingley law.
In a word, it has become obvious that
were the organization in the Senate
er tnrown, the majority, composed
f Democrats for the most part with a
few .progressive Republicans, would
plaj ducks and drakes with the tariff
foils that they would maintain or even
iwneaso the duties on those products of
certain Eastern States mercilessly.
In the estimation of the president,
thfy would make a thoroughly incon
sistent tariff bill, which the House would
re fuse absolutely to accept, and the re
n)t would be a session prolonged
throughout the summer and an ultimate
result which would satisfy no one.

.V-iC only have tho Democrats proven
