(From a Staff Correspondent)
WASHINGTON. March u. (Special.)
After a careful comparative study of the
Underwood and Payne wool bills; Con
gressman Green of the Council Bluffs
district has come to the conclusion that
I iiro r.i n. vm m cimuru 10 oemocraiic
ss veil ss republican support, and maUe
the following analysis in support ut hi
"A comparison of the new republican
wool bill alth the L'nderwood bill and
the rsyne-Aldrich bill, which la now n
force, showa the usefulness of the tariff
commission and the necessity of con
tinuing It. The bill makes sweeping re
ductions all through schedule K. but un
like the Underwood bill still gives Ameri
can Industries a chance to aurvlve, as Its
rates are all based on ths report of ths
tariff commission ss to the difference In
cost of production st borne and abroad. ,
"Ths new bill divides all wool Into two
classes-clothing wool and carpet wool.
The tariff on the former Is laid on Its
scoured contents st U cents per pound
when Imported rsw and IS cents scoured.
This system doea away with the Joker
called the skirting clause, which wss so
forcibly criticised by Senator Dolllver In
his fsmous speech, and the Inequalities
which result from the uneven shrtnksge
of raw ooL The present rate Is 31 cents
on scoured wool, but by reason of ths
)oker, little waa Imported scoured. Wools
used tor csrpets, not being produced In
this country, are made practically free
ot duty under tha lew bill.
I aaerweed Were Tkaa Wllssa.
"Tha I'nderwood bill levies an ad va
lorem tariff of ti per cent upon all wools
and puts ths duty on cloth at lass than
tha Wilson bill, which closed so many of
our factories that 7.000.UC pounds of our
horns grown wool hsd to ' be exported In
one year. It Is obvious that If there Is no j
sufficient home market the fanner will i
suffer as much aa If wool ware free. Ths !
democratic bill not only levlea a St per
cent duty on carpet wools, but makes j
ths duties on carpets average higher than
tha new republican bill.
"The average reductions In ths new
bill srs about at per cent. One of ths
striking festurea ot the bill la tha reduc
tions oa law-priced goods. If this bill
becomes a law, as It should. It can no
longer be said that ths poor msn pays a
higher tariff on ths cloth hs uses thsn
ths rich. Ths contrary will be true as It
should be. Tsko for example dress goods
with wool face and cotton warp, coating
abroad about 1 cents per pour.d nd
about one-half cotton. Tha ad valonim
rata under tha new bill- "will bs 1
per cent. Under ths present law It
would be lint Per cent or more than
double. . On cloth . valued abroad at C
per pound the ad valorem under the
new law would be 11 per cent. Under the
present law tha duty would have been
K per cent The same method ts followed
with ready-made clothing. There are re
ductions all through, but tha greatest
are where the boat man It interested. ' The
Underwood trill makes a flat rate. Which
will not only work out unevenly, but as
ths report of ths tariff board showa no
where equals ths difference In cost of
production at borne and abroad.
Another Heavy Cat.
"Ths heavy cut la also made on wool
products that enter Into tha cheaper
cloths, Ths rata on tops Is practically
reduced one-half, so that the carded
woolen manufacturer ahould no longer
be at a disadvantage as compared with
the maker of tha more expensive wool
ens. , .
"Ths facta upon which the bill Is based
have been worked out with painstaking
accuracy by tha tariff board. Nothing
haa been accepted but that which was
verified by a personal examination by ths
' "Unless ths middlemen absorb the re
red uctlons all kinds of clothing and car
pets especially, will be much cheaper If
tha new bill becomes a law, aad there la
no reason why It should not. It ts be
lieved thst It will receive the support of
all the republican members ot tha house
unleaa some of the ultra-protectionists
should vots against It. If Mr. Under
wood and his felow democrats who have
been claiming that they wanted to 'lighten
the burdens of ths people' really dealrs
to reduce the dutlea where It would be of
the most benefit, ths opportunity Is now
