RETALIATION MUST BE MET.
Reciprocity In Present Tariff Bill a
Failure Through Trust Senators' Op-
pociticn Many Obstacles to New
Plan Mam Points to Settle.
As Secretary'"licet has been the
mouthpiece of President Roosevelt's
i t : "ministration on other occasions. , i.5
I a f..ir presumption that his declaration
j for a maximum and minimum bill in
j his lale Washington speech is intended
to he put forth as the administration
programme. An .Mr. Root did not indi
cate vrhcther it is propose * ! to increnic
the present lari.T rates as the maxi
mum or reduce the present tariff rates
for a minimum , the discussion of the
merits of the propOMtion must neces
sarily be confined at present to the
bald question of the practicability of a
maximum and minimum tariff and
whether sch a form of tariff is to the
best interests of the people. In tho.
Orst place it is an entirely new propo
sition to the voters , for probably not
one out of a hundred people ever
hea \ \ of it before and , judging by the
questions ? being asked , does not under
stand what maximum and minimum
tariif rates mean.
The present tariff bill in section 4
provided for reducing the maximum
rates through reciprocity treaties "to
the extent of not more than 20 per cen-
tur.i thereof upon such goods , wares or
merchandise , as may be designated
therein. " Such reciprocity tro.UVsve. . c

them on the objection of So la tors Aldrich -
drich , Lodge and others that to so re
duce the protection to some of their
constituents would injure them. It is
diilicult to see how the same senators
would agree to the minimum rates now

concessions on the p.irt o. Lie CJU..L y
that joins in the treaty. There is , how
ever , this difference between the two
plans. In the case of reciprocity the
treaties made must be ratified by the
senate , but minimum duties can be put
111 effect by executive owl or.
As the Republican congress will not
want to cut down the present maxi
mum rates , or in any event would not
want to reduce those rates of duty that
shelter trusts , the only question re
mains of how much les- ; than the max
imum rates shall b ? the minimum
rates. If the present rates were re
tained as the maximum and the mini
mum rates were made HO pur cent Ijsn '
we should enjoy that much less taxation - i
tion on such of the products of other
countries as were inclrdecl in thvir
minimum rate1 ? . But it nr t hp ro- ,
nieinborcd that the articles i-o.o'-od by ;
the minimum rates do not inch1e ev- |
cry thing , but only such as are selected j
for the sacrifice because they have not !
sullicient iniiucnce to preserve the pro- j
tectiou of the maximum rates Such a
tariff law would Lave to provide for
the products of such countries as Bug- j
land bcin.'r allowed our minimum rates , j
which has no protective tariff , taxing
only a few articles to produce revenue ,
so of course has no minimum rates to
reciprocate with , for It would be a
great breach of friendship for us to
allow minimum rates to Germany and
continue to exact maximum rates from
England. There is also the question of i
how sch a tariff would apply to those
countries with which we have treaties
of1 amity with agreement to vouchsafe
to j them the same treatment as to the
"most favored nation. " .so that we
should be compelled to give such na
tions the advantage of minimum rates
even if they could not make the same
The Democratic position o"ii the tariff
issueis such that unless the proposition - |
tion for a maximum and minimum tar
iff bill shall reduce quite largely the
present protection to the products of
the trusts and combines and place coal ,
hides , lumber and other raw materials
( in the free list it would not receive the
votes of Democratic congressmen. The
maximum and minimum tariff plan is
merely a subterfuge of the administra
tion to escape from the dilemma that j
their protection to the trusts has forced
them into with other countries. The
retaliatory tariffs of Germany , France.
Canada and other countries are about
to go into effect , and that means the
exclusion of many of pur products
from those countries and great loss to
our producers and exporters. In fact ,
the Republican protective system is
breaking down of its own weight , and
lonirheaded politicians of the Root
stripe see that something must be done
to save our commerce from foreign

ihe town had boon dividing their
coal to the lasi- hundred pounds
with each other and that there was
not enough to last longer than
two or three days , but that he had
enough to la > * t him a few days
longer than that if the people did
not steal it , but they were getting
desperate and in the country people
ple were freezing to death. It is
a little warm now for- such a story-
but we couldn't get his letter un

speaks very highly of the influe nee
of such a man in a town. We are
