ATTACKS COTTON TARIFF. Mississippi Congressman Character izes Bill as Robbery. Washington , Aug. 1. Rep. Wither- spoon of Mississippi , speaking on the j cotton tariff revision bill , character- , Izcd as "legnl lobbory" n tariff which raises more revenues than are neces sary to defray the public expenses. The tariff , ho declared , greatly in creases the cost of production. "Tho only sensible , logical deduc tion from this , " ho continued , "Is thnt ' all the taxes on what the mills buy , and on what its laborers consume. should be abolished , if the purpose is t to benefit and foster the cotton mills. I If wo could not only reduce one-half of the cost of cotton cloth production but in some way gather up all the wealth nnd redistribute It among the people who produced It , every cotton mill In America would be nblo to run . on full time , to pny its laborers living j wages , and to sell its product at such prices as would produce fair profits. " I Mr. Wltherspoon declnred the the ory of protection was to Increase the j cost of production by levying enor mous tnxes on that cotton mills bought and on all that Its operatives con sumed. "Then , " he charges , "as a compen sation to the overburdened mill , It proposes to rob the American laborer , professional men nnd other classes of , the consuming public to the extent of , making the cotton mills profits as largo or larger.
