' HORRISTOWN. N. J..- Oct. 30 Former
President Cleveland apoka here tonight In
Lyceum hall. Ho said:
. I am especially plaw'd to learn that tariff
reform hna been marie the principle Issue
In the canas you hrfve o i hand. Of course
customs duties must continue to be lha
scurce of government maintenance until
snlther plan Is devised, but a tariff, con
structed for the purpose of protection la an
j un'Juat and unfair burden upon the .masses
of the people.
; R-itm Old Battle. .
! It was not long since the democratic
party In advocating th reduction of tariff
tmatlon to the, -revenue neCflrf of the gov
.ernment, "jafed Ha Inetetence upon the d.ny
of cheapening the prices of necessities and
.withdrawing so'miicji protection from a fa-
, Voted few us allowed them abnormal prof
it". But the exactlona on account of pro
tection wore made In such a stealthy man
ner that It whs difficult to impress the evil
. orr purchases.
" While this process was going on Imported
articles wera charged such high duties as
to create a surplus revenue, this surplus
represented a small proportion of the un
necessary price of living entailed by high
protection. Hut this e mount was Inslgnlil
cant as compared with the .gjnv. manufac
turers pocketed.
Proceeding he sketched the history of the
tariff movement slqce 187. when he urged
a reduction In customs duties, to the pres
ent time.
Less than a "year 'after that message It
was made a target, he said, for all sorts
off attack In a presidential election, and
acting on the Idea that the tariff must be
reformed by lt friends, the people wera
perfiaded to keep those friends In political
control, and they forthwith constructed a
new scheme of high protection.
The bill then passed was so full of abom
ination and so plainly showed the heedless
nets of Its authors of the .Interests of tho
people, that voters were prompt In their re
venge. But sooner than they expected
friends of the tariff, or. In other words,
those who sought to grow rich with gov
ernment help at the expense of the people,
came into power again.
Capitalists Framed Law.
He had, .beard It aald upon excellent au
thority that expectant beneficiaries were
actually allowed to construct the schedule
by which they expected to profit.
t believe this last -exploit of the so-called
friend of tket tariff in Its revision should
amply satisfy any thoughtful citizen that
the spirit of a hUh protective tariff grows
by Indulgence and " mocks what It fels
upon, and that ita progressive greed and
ruthtassnnss is becoming more and more a
. menace to the welfare and happiness of the
How long has it been thought decent, or
even safe, to cheat cunaumera of coat by
putting It pn.tbe free list, but dishonestly
providing for Its taxation In another cun
ningly constructed provision of the law?
I have called your attention to the fact
that' In 1KS7 'Competition which. If unre
stricted, might modify,, the effect upon our
consumers of a high protective tariff, was
spoken of M -"toe .of Sen strangled by com
binations, quite prevalent at this time and
frequently calMl tr'jStw."
When this was written I suppose the
trusts so far as they-were at all Important
might, have been counted on the fingers.
When the friends of the tariff last took up
the work of In reconstruction, those trusts
had Ipcrsased by hundreds. It was aa plsin
then as now that a ,l)lgh protective tariff
defends them against foreign competition
ahd rtiafby-conrwleraViy In production and
price they -defend themselves -against com
petition at homa. It was perfectly apparent
that voder, the broad wings of high protec
tion they , -wuld complacently close their
ears to trie troublesome cry for easier liv
ing from the everyday consumer.
is It -not :true., then, that the encroach
ments of the doctrine of high - protection
have been ronatantly progressive, and is It
not true that to all other reasons for tariff
reform there la added the birth and growth
of their cruel ami unmerciful progeny,
trusts and combinations, which stand guard
against all attempts to seek relief In the
f eld of free competition?
'That , present tariff conditions have as
sumed' a, complexion" ' which not only re
quires a check. but avtual amendment, la
at last admitted among those responsible
for these conditions.
We hear It on everir side. It means that
they ee the handwriting on the wall as
tney havo never seen it before. Does It
mean that they are sincerely willing to do
something for the people, as against old
cemnulea who have heretofore paid well
for tUe, neglect of the people?
How, can we believe this when we see
still paraded up and down before our sight
the hoary-headed and malodorous old fraud
and pretense, that tbe tariff should be re
vised oy Its friends?
I have ' supposed my fellow cltliens
thoughtful on this subject and desirous of
an amendment of the tariff and I have at
tempted to give reasons why this work
should not be entrusted to those who have
so fully demonstrated their Insincerity and
unfitness for the task.

PARI3, Oct. $0, A renewal of minor dis
turbancea between strikers .and oonstrlkers
was reported to&ay from the mining dis
tricts. At Denaln the strfkera demolished
a coal yard, broke the windows of buildings
and sent a threatening letter to the mayor.
At Lens there was also much petty de
struction of property. At Dunkirk fourteen
arrests were made.. The national commit
tee of the Minena' Federation has adopted
a resolution asking the miners to stand to
gether and Insist that the companies will
unitedly accept arbitration. .
The managers of coal mines in the De
partment Du'Nord have written to the pre
feet of that department promising to meet
the miners, but objecting to arbitration as
premature. . 1 '
Replying to a question asked by M.
'Jaures (socialist) In the-Chamber of Depu

tho companies' to tbe arbitration proposals
had not yet been received, but that It
must be taken into account that, negotia

manager of the mine. ; .: ' '
He explained that the mine managers
must refer the matter to thele. respective
directors and said tie hoped an agreement
would be reached. ' , .

PARIS, Oct. SO. The atrike of the mem

today. i
The strikers assembled at the Labor
exchange bearing their Instruments. Al
though the theater managera announced
their purpose of lighting the strike, a
.number of tht-m have already yielded,
rather than risk the loss which would ensue
from a protracted struggle.
Most of the large music balls and cafea
have also yielded, and their orchestras have
returned to duty, though a number of them
continue to resist and are giving perform
ances without orchestras.
The , prefect ot police, having been ad
vised of the intention of the strikers to
Invade theater and wreck the instruments
of aubstltutea, posted a large force of police
to preserve order at tbe threatened placea
of amusement.
Almost all tbe theatrical managera hav
ing accepted the terms of the musicians,
the evening passed without Incident.
The theater and music halls which are
atandlng out against the strikers' demands
have either dispensed with orchestras or
replaced them with pianos.

Traata Accompany Prosperity.
Th" evils complained of are an outgrowth
of the procens ot indaMrial development..
Their regulation Is also a necessary part of
that process.
'1 he wonderful scientific discoveries and
li.venfloiiH of the IrtKt half century have
trormously increaril the productive power
of mankind. 1 here has been greater prog
ress In productive power during the latrt
cer.tury than In any thousand yeurn before.
This enormous 'niltiitlnn to the productive
power of labor was duo first to the brains
that matin the discoveries and Inventions
end organised the great combinations of
capital necessary to use the new powers
and tho new methods necetstry for their
uee. and, second to the capital that built
tho machines and the mills and the rail
roads and was wasted In unsuccessful ex
periments and took the. chances of loss to
gain the rewards of nurcesst'ul enterprise.
it Is plain that in the dlstribjtlon of this
rrvry acquired wealth the brains that In
vest and that organise should have their
share; the capital that constructs and
maintains should lie' rewarded for Its risk;
the laborer should have higher waftes be
cause his labor la producing jrfore, and the
consumer should have lower prices because
the product which he purchases IS produced
with greater eaee and at less cost. '
Capital and brains always get the advan

The organizers of the sugar trust made

make It before the trust was formed. The
organisers if the Standard fill company
have mad a great deal of money, but the
poorest American farmer is lighting" his

of the wealth created by the brains and

Is to say, about five times the number of
workmen received- about ten - times -the
amount of wages, or wages just about
doubled during the fifty years. On the other
hand, while ti33,MiQ.ftiiO Invested In manufac
tures In ISjO had swelled to fO.Kfi.ono.onO In
19ti0, every dollar of capital so Invested re
ceived less than one-third of the return re
ceived In 1X50. Thus, while the returns of
capital seem great because they are massed
and the returns of labor seem small because
they are scattered, capital's proportionate
share of the new wealth Is decreasing and
labor's Is increasing.
The. reault of this process Is a diffusion
of wealth among the people, the contempla

The republican party proposes to regu
late, curb and suppress the bad trusts,
rather than destroy the good and bad to
gether, and with them the prosperity which
brings such beneflcient results to all.
The democratic party claims that It
should revise the tariff and so cure the
trust evil. Observe they do not propose to
confine themselves to cutting off duties
upon articles made by trusu, but thalr
remedy Is to destroy the trusts by drag
ging them down in general ruin, you can
kill the trusts, you can close their mills,
but you close the mills also of all other
producers of a similar article, and you
substitute for domestlo production the Im
portation of foreign articles. Ae foreign
production Is in a great measure con
trolled by trusts, you substitute a foreign
trust for an American trust. Tou abandon
the remedy of American competition and
substitute a foreign monopoly..
Competition la Growing-.
When the sugar trust was formed It took
over U0 per cent of the refining capacity of
the country. Immediately new refineries
were started and today over 40 per cent of

United States Steel corporation, was sup-
ioaed to oe an overwneiming monopoly;

Are you going to ruin all' such Indepen

In their competition by wise regulation,
and by seeing to It that the big concern Is
fair to the smaller one? -
When the democrats did obtain power, In
the second administration or Mr. Cleve
land, they were unable to use it, because
that administration wan Ingrained with
destructive habits and had no constructive
capacity. For half, a century the demo
cratic party has constructed nothing but
the southern confederacy and the Wilson
tariff bill. The Wilson tariff was so bad
that the democratic president would not
sign It, Its enforcement was accompanied
by disaster and poverty and its repeal
under republican rule has been followed by
abounding prosperity; while the very men
who wreathed the standard of the lost
cause with imperishable renown declare
that the failure of the confederacy was a
blessing to mankind.
Addressing himself to the continually re
curring conteala between capital and labor,
Mr. Root spoke ot the good understanding
enjeodered by a recognition of mutual and
reciprocal Interests. In Illustration of
thla he cited the friendly relations
between railroad owners and the aa
soclated engineers, firemen, trainmen aad
conductors, the agreement made tbe other
lay between the tin plate manufacturer
and their workmen and the agreement be
tween employers and employes for ths an
nual readjustment of wagea throughout ths
