The decision to make a gradual reduction in the sugar tariff was reached by the President and the House Committee ifter Louisiana cane growers declined to accapt a compromise that would have established a one cent per pound tariff for three yeais with free sucar in 1916.

In a sialenient accompanying the bill, Chairman I'nderwood said the measure would, in the opinion of its makers, revise the tariff "t> a In i, ,.f legitimatecotnpelition, such as will afford a wholesome influence on our com nyrce, bring relief to the people in the matter of the high cost of liv ing, and at the same time work no detriment to properly conducted ma mi fact un ng industries, "In its tariff revision work the committee has Kept in mind he s lid, "the distiii 11 1 I* |ween the necessities and ihe luxuries of life, reducing the tariff burdens on he necessities to the lowest points Commensurate wild revenue requirements, and making ihe luxuries of life hear iheir proper portion of ihe tanff responsibilities. Many items of manufacture contiolled by monopolies have been placed on the free list I ne idea of ihe large extension of ihe free list for the unmanufactured products hasben the fundamental conception, while the effort has been mada to improve the status of the manufactured lumber. Thus sawed boards other than cabi net wood, have been carried to the free list while sawed cabinet woods which were 12.75 P er cent in 1912, are now 10 per cent; ensks, barrels, etc., which were 30 per cent, are now 14.77 per cent: and house furrilure, which was j ,„ • ,. now t per cent.

Where competition is not interfered with by levying the tax above the highest competitive point, the profits of the manufacturer are not protected.

Th free wool proposal, backed
by President Wilson and accepted
by the House Committee, is ex.

wiilnn the Democratic ranks of
boih houses. [1 hid not become
clear today whether the Democrat
tic opponents of fiae wool and
free sugar in the Sen ite would be
able to force a compromise on one
or both those provisions.
The decision to make a gradual
reduction in the sugar tariff was
reached by the President and the
House Committee ifter Louisiana
cane growers declined to accapt a
compromise that would have es-
tablished a one cent per pound ta-
riff for three yeais with free sucar

To encouraga trade with foreign

vision of the present tariff law.
The new tariff 1 ites would | e
the maximum tariff and the Presi.
dent would be given authority to
negotiate reciprocity treaties and
make concessions tn countries that
grant favors to American exports.
In a sialenient accompanying
the bill, Chairman I'nderwood
said the measure would, in the
opinion of its makers, revise the
tariff "t> a In i, ,.f legitimatecotn-
pelition, such as will afford a
wholesome influence on our com
nyrce, bring relief to the people in
the matter of the high cost of liv
ing, and at the same time work no
detriment to properly conducted
ma mi fact un ng industries,
"In its tariff revision work the
committee has Kept in mind he
s lid, "the distiii 11 1 I* |ween the
necessities and ihe luxuries of life,
reducing the tariff burdens on he
necessities to the lowest points
Commensurate wild revenue re-
quirements, and making ihe luxu-
ries of life hear iheir proper por-
tion of ihe tanff responsibilities.
Many items of manufacture con-
tiolled by monopolies have been
placed on the free list
" I ne idea of ihe large extension
of ihe free list for the unmanufac-
tured products hasben the funda-
mental conception, while the effort
has been mada to improve the
status of the manufactured lumber.
Thus sawed boards other than cabi
net wood, have been carried to the
free list while sawed cabinet woods
which were 12.75 Per cent in 1912,
are now 10 per cent; ensks, barrels,
etc., which were 30 per cent, are
now 14.77 per cent: and house fur-
rilure, which was j , ,.

sumer, and to mitig ite the h rh

85 p ir cent to 94,03 per cent, live
poultry from 13.10 per cent 106.67
per cent, ami vinegar bom
per cent to 17.39 pei cent. ( )ii,
changes are in proportion, and the
general effect has been to reduce
in a very material proportion the
heavy taxes upon imported food
stuffs.
"Where the tfriff rates balance*
tha diffcience in cost of production
at home and abroad, including an
allowance for the difference in
freight rates, the tariff must I e
competitive, and from that point
downward to the lowest tariff th it
can be levied will continue to be
competitive to a greater 01 lest ex-
tent. Where competition is not
interfered with by levying the tax
above the highest competitive
point, the profits of the manufac-
turer are not protected.
"On the other hand, when the
duties levied at the custom
house are high enough to allow
the American manufacturer to
make a profit before his ompetL
tor can enter the field, we ha in.
vaded the domain oi the prote tion
of profits, In Ihe committees judge*
the protection of an) profit must
of neccessity have a tendency to
destroycompetition and create n

ted is reasonable or unreasonable.

We have devoted the major
portion of this issue, to a special
correspondence from Washing-
ton D. C. relative to the New
Tariff Bill of the United States.
This is a matter of extreme
interest and importance to us,
for if, fortunately, this Bill
should become law we may rea-
sonably look foiward to a' ma-
tenal reduction in the cost of
living here, and a better oppor-
tunity for our exports.
We commend it to the care-
ful and attentive reading of our
readers, and we are sure that,
with us, they are grateful to our
< orrespondent for this excellent
- ^position of the New Tariff,
which perhaps we could not
otherwise have obtained.
We are aiso thankful to "Am-
bassador" Bnce for his kind
cilices in the matter.

We have devoted the major
portion of this issue, to a spe< ial
correspondence from Washing-
ton D. C. relative to the t
Tariff Bill of the United States.
This is a matter of extreme
interest and importance to us,
for if, fortunately, this Bill
should become law we may rea-
sonably look forward to a ma-
teiial reduction in the coSI ol
living here, ami a bettei oppor-
tunity for our exports.
We commend it to the care-
ful and attentive reading of our
readers, and we are sure that,
With us, they are grateful to our
" orrespondent for this excellent
< xposition of the New Tariff.
which perhaps we could not
otherwise have obtained.
We are also thankful to "Am-
bassador" Brice for his kind
oilices in the matter.
