The Aberdeen (Miss.) Exam
iner in discusssing the proposed
new Dingly tariff bill claims
that the experts of the treasury
department who have critically
examined both the Dingly Tarift
bill and the senate amendments
have expressed the opinion that
neither one of them will supply
adequate revenue. In other
words a bill that levies im-
port duties upon such drastic
ines as to cut off importations
cannot be a revenue producer
and its only effect is to burden
the people with heavy takes
that will go into the pockets of
the corporations and trusts in
stead of the treasury. A word
of explaination will make this
clear to our readers : An article
with import duty of one cent a
pound may be imported largely
and in that case every pound im-
ported will pay a cent into the
federal treasury. Now increase
that tax to four cents a pound
and importation ceases. The
home manufacturer will advance
his price say two and a half cents
a pound this will enable him to
underbid any outsider who has
to pay four cents import duty
and he will simply pocket the ad-
ditional two and a half cents a
pound that you are forced to
take out of your own pocket and
the government won't get a cent.
"Protection run mad" is the or
der of the day "and the country
will witness a terrible reaction
and awakening ere long.
