Report Is Merger of Democratic Doc-
I trine and Analysis of Bill.
1 Washington , April 19. The major
ity report of the ways and means com
mittee on the socalled farmer's free
list bill , submitted to the house today
, by Chairman Underwood , is a merger
of democratic political argument and
analysis of the proposed duty exemp
i The report shows that the bill would
reduce the tariff revenue $10,016,495 ,
based on the importation for the last
fiscal year , an amount described aa
"inconsiderable In comparison with
the great saving and advantages to
our people with the additions to the
free list provided for. "

they have not received the long prom
ised benefits of domestic competition
under high protective duties. "
