; ariff school oit Hanry Olny aud of the
iigher tariff aohool of the Ponim 1
v.inla democrats , but lima , reading
ind observation led him to change hif

Inaugurated nil manufactories would

The epcaker snid the report of the
tariff commission in aomo ro-
spools was a surprise to him.
It was better than he anticipated
from a commission selected with npcc-
ial reference to "how not to do it. "
The comraioslon , when appointed , vras
supposed to be for the purpose ot
maintaining all the monstrosities of
the present tariff , and ad iug TIQW
cnea , It posiiblo. It waa not tor htm
to say how much the recant election
had to do 'with changing the original
intention. At all events the commis
sion had made a fairly good report , a
commencement In the right direction
of tariff reform According to their
claim , they had taken off 20 per
cent and simplified the imposing
und collecting by throning
off compound duties. Ho no
ticed , however , that the woolen
manufacturers had influence enough
to retain the present abominations ,
and fifty-five millions of woarora of
woolen goods must still stand the
tax. Thu commitmion admitted the
need of n free list , but foil chort in
carrying out thia concession to com
mon eenso. An extended frco list of
raw materials was especially needed ,
The speaker instanced nsphultum ,
Portland commit- , Bed * ash , bleaching
povrdors , all kinds of coal , nalt , lumber ,
copper , iron ore , flix tow , needs and
coarao wools ns nmoog the proper
things to at on the free He
proceeded to argue from the I'.mount
of gooda manufactured and the
amount imported that the fnrmora
alone pay ttvo to three hundred mil
lions annually moro than they should
for their necutaarlcs. Farmer.anil ou
free trude principlcn , the tariff put
down to their credit being n in ore
straw , chaff , ntid worthless The
argument that without tariff foreign
goods would praps in nud drive out
homo manufacturers applies to but
one-third of the people in cltica and
towcs , as the articles consumed by
the other * two > thitds , not to men
tion fnrmore , uro unprotected.
Would not manufacturers continue to
supply this two-thirds and
the farmers , If protection was taken
off the other fraction ? Protection , ho
said , Is a system of reciprocal rob
bery. Ono manufacturer , protected
to the extent of fifty par cam , robbed
a brother manufacturer to that extent.
The brother manufacturer In turn
robbed him. If protection waa taken
i M' both , they would bo at evena on a
lower uc.ilo of priced. Ho hold our
manufacturers are no longer infants ,
but stalwarts , and able to take o&ro
of themselves. Aa the result of per
sonal observation , ho found Kagliah
free trade laborora as well paid aa
the American protected labor
er. Farmers wagea are a
third less , the price of thingH
ho hud to purchase proportionately
lower , do recommended a reduction
of the tariff to 15 or 20 per cent ltd-
valorem. This would enable the farm
ers to buy moro , aa gooda would be
cheaper , and this in return would fur
nish employment for 800,000 to 400 , .
000 moro manufacturing operatives ,
The disappearance of the American
navy ho held waa due to high tariff ,
because American vessels must curry

NKW YOKK , December 13. In-
iricH amnng the agencies of the
foreign Inuuraucu companies confirm
thu report of a largo conflagration at
Kingston , .lAtnuica , bnt it in thought
the loss has been exaggerated. However -
over , the damage ie bulieved to be
heavy , inasmuch as the large ware <
honteH situated within the boundarlei
of the burned district , contain at thii
seaaon of the your heavy stocks o !
sugar , rum and other merchandise foi
nhipmcnt to the United Statea am
Europe. The fire included the die
trlct from the corner of West am
Port Ituyitl streets nearly to Kas
atroot. Both sides of Port Koya
street were destroyed with thi
wharrea to the southward
Mi ) t of the buildings destroyed wer
of Htone or brick , Th&t portion o
the city devoted to reildenoet vru no
reached by Iho Ihnic * . The principal
loners will undoubtedly bo merchants
who laid in large Blocks of good * for
.tho Ohrittnm scnson. The theatre ,
rncontly fitted up , was de.itroyod.
The ire must have been c'xlmnilvo ,
jtlcging ffctn the largo orders for
lumber pouring in from Kingston
during the day. The loss id estimntod
horn at half the amount stated in
early dispatches.
