"Gradual i ariff Reduction. "
, - *
Woodrow Wilson-tells the plain
and simple truth'when , in his in
terview commending the demo
crats of the house on the wool bill ,
he says :
It does not seem to me that there
is any abandonment of democratic
principles in the action taken. It
seems to me that democratic prin
ciples have bsen reasserted. While
I am in favor of free wool , every
democratic platform had declared
for gradual tariff reduction.
Ifc is amazing how the mistaken
notion is entertained by many
otherwise well informed men tLat
"free wool" is a democratic plat
form pledge , and that the demo
crats of the house are therefore
guilty of an act of party betrayal
when they indorse a bill to reduce
the duty on raw wool from 4 per
cent to 20 per cent , 'and on woolen
manufacturers from 90 per cent to
42 per cent. The truth is that
they are carrying out strictly the
platform adopted by the Denver
convention , so far as raw wool is
concerned. If they are at all open -
pen to censure for failure strictly
to comply with platform doctrine ,
it is not that they failed to place
raw wool on the free list , but that
they failed to place manufactured
woolens on the free list in cases
where such manufactures are con
trolled by trusts. And yet.
strangely e'nough , this is a point
on which no democratic critic has
attacked them , the only criticism
of this kind coming from Cor-
gressman IvJurdock , a Kansas in
It surgent , who proposes to support
the bill. It is worth while , to
clear up this point , again to quote
from the Denver platform :
We favor immediate revision of
the tariff by the reduction of im
port duties. Articles enter ing in
to competition with trust ccntroll-
ed products should be placed on
the iree list ; material reductions
should be made in the tarill upon
the necessaries of life , especially
upon articles competing with sucK t
j American manufactures as are
sold abroad more cheaply than at
home , and gradual reductions
should be made in such other
schedules as may be necessary
to restore the tariff to a revenue
As the World-Herald has before
pointed out , raw wool is not con
trolled by a trust , nor is American
raw wool sold abroad more cheap
ly than at home , Therefore , in
reducing the tariff thereon from a
highly protective'to a revenue ba
sis , the democratic bill carries out ,
strictly and literally , the promise
to the people made in the demo
Nor was the Denver plank new
doctrine. It was entirely in har
mony with an unbroken line of
democratic platform pledges. We
invite attention to the list of tariff
declarations advanced in other
democratic national conventions :
At St.Louis , 190JWe : favor a
tariff limited to the needs of the
government economically admin
istered , and so levied as not to dis
criminate against any industry ,
class or section . . . We favor a
revision and a gradual reduction
of the tariff.
At Kansas City , 1900 : Tariff
laws should be amended by putting
the products of trusts upon the
free list , to prevent monoply un
der the plea of protection.
At Chicago , 1896 : We hold that
tariff duties should be levied for
purposes of revenue , such duties
to be so adjusted as to operate eq
ually throughout the country and
not discriminate between class or
section . . . Until the money ques
tion is settled we are opposecl to
any further changes in our tariff
Each of these tariff planks was
written by the friends and under
the direction of those who are now
denouncing a democratic congress.
Each voiced the. position ot the
democracy. In none of'them'is
there a pledge for free wool.
Rather there is laid down.the doc
trine of gradual revision to a rev-
enue basis. Twice there is the ex
pression against levying tariffs seas
as to "discriminate between indus
try , class or section.,3 While the
Wo rid-lie raid believes in free'Taw
wool 1 as a stimulant and , incentive
to American -manufacturers , it
submits that it might well be ar
gued that there would be' discrim
ination in placing the farmers'
wool on the free list , for the ben
efit of the manufacturer , while
leaving a tariff on woolen manu-
factufers , at the expense of the
farmers and all other consumers.
Regardless of this point , how
ever , the fact remains indisputable
that the 50 per cent reduction on
wool and woolens proposed in the
Underwood bill is in conformity
with both the manner and spirit
of tariff revision as favored in
democratic platforms ever since
the regenerative campaign of 1S96.
