PiiH.iuEi.ruiA , 1'a. , Oct. 8. Tbo following
It a synopsis of the speech of Senator Sher
man delivered hero tonight :
Senator Sherman said that Inasmuch as
this was n business mnu's nicotine bo would
conflno himself to business questions In-
YOlved in this presidential election. The
whole aspect of the tarlll question , ho said ,
hud been changed by tbo recant action ot the
democratic convention ut Chicago. For the
first time In tha history ol the country hud a
national party dared to proclaim that a
tariff for protection Was unconstitutional and
was a fraud upon the laborer for tno benefit
of the lew. It was a bold declaration , as
bold us the rebellion , and bad been mot by
the American people In tbo same spirit as
they mot the rebellion. There should bo no
trueo or rurley until this issue was deter
mined , not by war , but by tbo voloo of the
rmrrr to linpoao Dutlei ,
"Tho power to impost ) duties on imnorts , "
continued tlio senator , "originally belonged
to the several sta'os , Tbo right to adjust
thoeo duties , with a vlow to the encourage
ment ot uomostlo brnnobos of Industry , Is BO
completely Identical with the power that it
it dinicult to suppose the existence of the
ODO without the other. The states have del
egated then- whole authority over Imports to
the federal government without limitation or
restriction , saving the very Inconsiderable
restriction relating to thulr Inspection
laws. TbU authority thus having entirely
pasted from the stales , tha right to exorclso
it for the purpose of protection aoos not oxlst
in them and , consequently , U It uo not pos
sessed by iliu general government it must bo
extinct. Our political system would thus
present the anomaly ol a people stripped of
the right to foster their own industry and to
counteract tlio most Bclllbh ant ! destructive
policy which might bo ivloptcd t > y foreign
iiaUous. TiiU Hiirolv cannot bo the case
that Indispensable power thus surrendered
by the status must bo within the scope of
the authority unou the subject , expressly
delegated to congress ,

Coinage of Silver.
' Tbo second business of national policy
of great importance to which 1 have re
ferred , Is whether the coinage of silver shall
bo free , whether the bolder of 412K grains
of standard silver or U70 > grains of nuro
silver can present it to tbo treasury of the
United Stales and have It coined for him
into a. dollar. That much silver Is worth In
tbo market about 07 cents. If the coinage of
silver Is made free , then all the silver
now In existence , estimated at JI.OOO-
000,000 , and nil the silver hereafter
mined , nmouutlne last year at coinage value
to $185,000,000 and annually mcroaslng , could
bo brought to our mints and coined into dollars
lars nt tlio expense of tbo United States and
lor the benefit of the owner of silver. Tbo In
evitable elToct would bo to reduce the pur
chasing pownr of tbo dollar to OT cents. The
dollar in gold would then disappear from
circulation and bo xvorth in the market
nearly S1.50. I bollovo President Harrison
would veto a free coinagemeasure. . What
Mr. Cleveland would do I cannot say. Ho
docs not lull us. Now. what wo want Is
both gold and silver money , but always
maintained at uar with each other , money
having the same purchasing powor. How
can wo cot It ? The simple answer Is , by
putting enough silver in tbo silver dollar to
make it equal in value to the gold in the gold
dollar. If : < 70 > grains are not enough pnt
Into tha silver dollar 480 grains or 550 grains.
Give tbo people an houost dollar aud thus
settle the silver question.

Ifoir the Itrlcf Scare Sent tlio I'rlce of Sugar
One of the effects of the cbolortt sensation
has been to'add another to the arguments In
favor of the republican protective policy.
That is the opinion of ilenry T. Oxnard of
the Oxnard Beet Sugar company of Grand
Island , who was In the city yesterday. In
conversation with n reporter Mr. Oxnard
said that the cholera scare had given the
American peoulo an object lesson on the
value of nrctectlon as applied to industries
which are susceptible of development but
which had not been developed in the.United
"Tabo as an instance , " ho continued ,
"the sugar industry. Ono of the elfecta of
the cholera scare was to ddvanco the price
ot suznr $3,000,000 in about six weeks.
Nearly nil the Imported beet sugar conies
fiom Ham burp and Antwerp. As an embargo
barge was laid upon imports from these ports
for about six weeks American sugar rcllncrs
hud to look elsewhere for their raw material.
Tbo Cubans soUod the opuortunity and
raised the price nf their sugar over one-half
cent per pound to American roliuers. Tboy
In turn ralsoa the price of rollncd sugar to
the cor.sumcis and as a direct consequence
of tbo increased prlco paid by the consumers
? : t,000,000 was transferred from tha pooucts
ot tbo American people to tncso Spaniards
Inside of six weeks. Tbo sumo rule applies
to any Industry In which we place ourselves
at the meicy of foreign nations who will not
hesitate to tax us to the utmost limit In our
misfortune , and lu the event of a .European
war , which is not only possible but prob
able , there Is no doubt"that tbo cane sugar
producing countries will raise- the price to
huch an extent that in a single year wo
would have to pay moro in the increased
prlco of sugar than It would cost u * to develop
velop this industry under the protective
system as It oxlsu today , to cay nothing _ of
the great ad van tago which our farming classes
would derive from the introduction of a now
crop which promises so much for the futuro.
"Am wo going to yield our industrial su
premacy ny Iistonlnito the voice of free
traders whoso judgment is under tbo
sway of foreign theorists , instigated
as they are by foreign nations
whose jealousy and hatred of our unparall
eled advancement knows no bounds. What
is true of beet sugar will apply equally to
any Industry that Is capable of development
under our government. Our an test on * pro
tected this"country aud made it what it Is
by the sword , und it is tbo duty ot every
American i Itueu who loves bis country to
protect and still further advance its develop
ment by the agonoy of the ballot. Facts as
they exist should not bo abandoned for the
doubtful theories of free traders who are
allies of foreigners ana foreign nations. "
