they expect the mines there to resume

was caused by a misunderstanding as to

Shaw was the Jwlrtfclpal speaker. The meet-
ITlg was upeneu uy d. xiampiun iriuui e,

In a few localities there Is some restlessness
on the tariff Question. The Armrlean rxso
pie are like every other people: they grow
restless uiuier prosperity ana wellnlght dee
perate under adversity. .. .
Secretary Shaw briefly discussed the term
"Standpatter," saying Senator Hanna first
employed It In Its present significance In
1892, but said Senator Hanna did not mean
by that that the tariff should never- le re
vised. He continued: - , .
I have recognised that there are some In
equalities In the present tariff laws. If. I
could do It in a night I would make several
cnanges. But. while I have recognlxcd tha
the Dlngley tariff law, like any other larlff
law that ever will be made. Is Imperfect,
its operation has brought employment to
t very man willing to work and has secured
to every toller unprecedented compensation
we must adopt a principle ana then log.
lcally apply It. If It Is to be a tariff for
revenue only, then' let tariff for revenue
only be applied to the producers of citrus
fruits In Florida, to the producers of tex
tiles and other articles of apparel In Now
England and to the producers of wheat In
Dakota; but if it Is to be protection, then
let It be protection, to every Industry In
which our people are employed. Protection
Is not a local issue and the application of
protection must not be localised.
