the fair grounds, Mr. Taft did not return

to the fair gates and leaving from there
direct for La Crosse. Senator Stephenson,
Governor Davidson and Mayor Rose took

WASHINGTON, Sept. 17.-Forecast
ths weather for Saturday and Sunday:
For Nebraska and South Dakota Partly
cloudy Saturday, with warmer In east
and cooler In west portions; Sunday fair
For .Iowa Fair, warmer Saturday; Sun
day Increasing cloudiness and possibly
showers by night.
In America alone, but In frc trade and
protection countries abroad as well, kept
climbing higher and higher. Ths great
est enthusiasm of the president's address
was aroused when he declared that If the
people wanted free trade If they wanted
to close down manufactories and to have
cheaper prices at the sacrifices of many
business Interests, they ought to put the
democratic party In power. Ths presi
dent said he doubted even If that would
succeed for the democrats In the senate
voted strongly for the protection of arti
cles manufactured or grown In their states
Although Senator Crawford and Gamble
of South Dakota Journeyed down Into
Wisconsin today to pay their respects to
the president. It was remsrked that neither
Senator Nelson nor Senator Clspp, both
Insurgent, were here to greet the presi
dent on his first appearance In Minnesota.
The president retired on board his train
to night and leaves for Minneapolis at
I o'clock a. m.
President Taft In his address at the
Winona opera house tonight said:
"My fellow citizens: As long ago as
August J!W, In the congressional campaign
In Maine, I ventured to announce that 1
was a tariff revisionist, and thousht that
the time had cotne for a readjustment of
the schedule. In the summer of V.KK7, my
position on the tariff, was challenged and
I then entered Into a somewhat fuller dis
cussion of the matter. It was contended
by tha so-called 'Stand-patters' that rates
beyond the necessary measure of protec
tion were not objectionable because be
hind tha tariff wall competition always
reduced the prices, and thus saved the
consumer. But I pointed In that speech
what seems to me as true today as It then
was, that the danger of excessive rates
was In the temptation they created to
form monopolies In tha protected articles,
and thus to take advantage of the ex
cessive rates by Increasing the prices, and
therefore In order to avoid such a danger,
it was wine at regular Intervals to examine
the question what the effect of trie rates
hsd been upon the Industries 'n this coun
try and whether the condition with re
spect to the cost of production here had
so changed as to warrant a reduction In
the tariff and to make a lower rata truly
protective of the Industry. That was the
object of the revision as advocated by me,
and it was certainly the object of the
revision ta" promised In the republican
Meaning; of Platform.
"I want to make as clear as I can thth
proposition, because In order to -determine
whether a bill Is a compliance with the
terms of that platform It must be under

P. m 7J , under the tariff and devoted an Immense
amount of work In the study of the ques
tion where the tariff rates could be re
duced and where they ought to be raised
with a view to maintaining a reasonable
protective rate, under the principles of the
platform, for every Industry that deserves
llonae and Senate BUI.
"Mr. Payne reported a bill the Payne l
tariff bill which went to tha aenate and
was amended In the senate by Increasing
the duty on some things and decreasing It
"The difference between the house bill
and the senate bill was very much leas
than ths newspapers represent).
"It turns out upon xamlnation that tha
reduction In the senate were about equal
to those In the house, though they dif
fered In character. Now, there Is nothing I
quite so difficult as tha dlscusaion of a
tariff bill for the reason that It covers
so many different Items, the meaning of
the terms and the percentages are most
i difficult to understand. Tha passage of
1 a new bill., especially where a change in
th method of asaesxlng duties Is followed,
presents an opportunity for various meth
ods and calculations of the percentages
of Increase and decreases that Is really
most misleading, or really throws no light
at all upon the changes made.
One way of stating that was done Is to
say what tha facts show that under the
Dlngley law there were 3.0-J9 Items. This
Included dutiable Items only.' Th Payne
law leaves 1.150 of these Items unchanged.
There are decreases In CM of th lictrfu
and Increases In ZX of the Items. Now,
of course, that does not give a full pic
ture, but It does show tne proportion oi
decrease to have been three times those
of the increases.
'Now, attempts have been made to show
what the real effect of these changes have
been by comparing th Imports under the
various schedules, and assuming that the
changes and their Importance were In pro
portion to the Importations. Nothing
could be mora unjust in a protective tar
iff which also contains revenue provis
ions. Some of the tariff Is made for the
purpose of Increasing the revenue by in
creasing Importation which shall pay
duty. Other Item In th tariff are made
for the purpose of reducing competition,
that In, by reducing Importations, and
therefore, the question of the Importance of
a change In rate cannot In the slightest
degree be determined by the amount of
imports that take place.
"In order to determine th importance
of th changes, it Is much fairer to take
the articles on which the rates of duty
have been reduced and thos on which th
rates have been increased, and then de
termine from statistics how large part
th articles upon which duties have been
reduced play In th consumption of the
country, and how larg a part tfiose upon
hli'h th duties have been lncreaaed play
In the consumption of the country. Such
