then 00 per cent ad valorem for his
own protection. Tho wool man not
only always has and always will, but
ho absolutely must join tho manu
facturer in demanding a duty on
cloth and no wool man will ever Join
Mr. Bailey in asking to take off either
the compensatory or the added duty
from tho cloth.
Hniley end Hides
Even Mr. Bailey proposes a duty
of 10 per cent on. hides with a duty
of 10 per cent on leather and shoes
and in doing so proposes a more than
compensatory duiy to tho manufacturer.
Let mo show you.
Suppose tho American shoo man
buys and putB info his shoo 30 cents,
at foreign price, of hides. Ho pays
the hido tax, 10 jer cent, or 3 cents,
and he puts in with it 70 cents worth
of labor to make the shoe. The shoe
has cost him $1 03. The English
man bought the same hide at 30
cents, paid no tax and put In with it
70 cents labor. Tho shoe has cost
him $1. Mr. Bailey's law would then
levy a tariff of 10 per cent upon tho
total English cost of tho shoo, so
that when ho t.ollectcd his tribute
from the Consumer tho AmArfrmn
shoo man Would collect from him.
first, tho 3 cents tax he paid on the
hido and then 7 cents nrorlnr.ffnn nn
his labor, which, would give him -Just
iuo same degree or protection given
oh the hide. But It would rami if in
the cotisimor"hPinc out m'oanta
"whjlo the government received only
o uunt,H. ,n you nau taiten mat duty
6ff of the Lld and rednrnd thn rinrv
joh the shoe to 3 per cent, you would
nave gotten, the same revenue and
the consumer have mid 7 cents less.
uut lr revenue and not protection
la what you want, let us talro Mr.
Bailey's democratic law 10 per cent
duty on hides and 10 per cent on
shoes further. Now sunnoso there
were raised $2,100,000 net revenue
on imported hiden of which to make
shoes, giving the hide percentage and
me moor perqentage or value In tho
finished shoo at 30 per cent hide
and 70 per cent labor, under Mr.
Bailey's law to raise $2,100,000 rev
enue on hides for shoes to bo made
and sold here, you would import
$21,000,000 worth of hides, foreign
nrice. and the .-shoo man would nav
that $2,1 00,000 duty into the treas
ury. He would .then put In labor
70 per cent of the total foreign cost
of the shoe. The total foreign cost
of the shoes would bo $21,000,000
hides, plus $49,000,000 labor; total
$70,000,000. On this sum Mr. Bai
lev's law would give 10 per cent, or
$7,000,000 protection to the Ameri
can shoe man to he paid by tho homo
consumer. Thus the treasury would
receive $2,100,000 and the consumer
bear $7,000,000 burden. If hides
had been free you could have raised
the same revenue by a duty of exact
ly 3 per cent on the imported shoes.
And so every duty on ra-w material
actually costs the consumer two to
five times what It would had it been
levied on the finished product.
Now that is io plain that a way
faring man, though a fool, If he Is
trying to lessen the burdens of the
nrmailTTiATV COXl fleG It. and It Gfltfth-

cheapest tax you can levy on the
consumer is the lax on the product at

Nothing; only It's a freo finished pro
