right again in saying that the people's
party is the only party that can or will
give cthe people a genuine reform of
our system of nation;1.! taxa'ion.
It is all very well and proper for peo
ple's party men to ridicule and de
nounce the farcical warfare of the two
old parties on the tariff question: but
when it e nies to saying that there is
"nothing in the tariff quest ion," that is
a very different matter. And it is
high time the people grappled with the
question in earnest.
Mr. Gibson's proposed plank is very
ingenious, and undoubtedly has many
merits. Whether it would be advis-
aoie io auopi 11 at umana, we are
hardly prepared to say. The great
popularity achieved by Blaine's reci
procity idea in so short a time, would
indicate that the people are ready to
endorse such a plank as this. Let us
hear from others on this subject.
