Articles not produced in this country, or produced in quantities entirely insufficient to supply tho demand, should be put on tho free list. Articles produced In Mils country In sufficient quantity sliould be subjected to a duty sufficient to protect the native producer. Under tho first head raw sugar wns put on the freo list because it yielded too much revenue and too little protection. Before the McKinlcy bill was passed it yielded about $55,000,000 in of revenue per year. The this article alone was sufficient to produce the deficit in the revenue resulting from tho McKinlcy bill. The protection demanded by the protected interests is such ns will check importations that Is, which will either stop their importation entirely or re duce them to a nominal figure. When this happens the recnuc from customs ceases entirely or is reduced also to n nominal figure. The programme has never been fully carried out, but the McKinlcy act came nearest to It. In tho fiscal year 1890 the revenue from customs wns about $230,000,000. In tho next fiscal year the revenues were largely swollen by importations made before tho bill went into effect, butstiil the customs revenue dropped below $220,000,000. In 1892 It wns down to $177,000,000. In 1893 It was up to $203,- 000,000, but in the fiscal year 1894 it was down to $1.11,000,000. Two months after tho close of that fiscal year the In w was repealed and the customs revenue has been increasing nnd the deficit tie creasing in every fiscal year since that time, until tho present, which has htlll more than six months to run. It should also bo noted thnt the re ceipts of the fiscal year 189G were several millions in excess of the expenditures of the year 1890. If expenditures had not been Increased there would have been no deficit in the Inst fiscal year. Nothing can be clearer than that a tariff which prohibits Importations will yield no revenue.

Tho word "reciprocity" has n talrlng sound about It, and It is very pleasant to know that one person reciprocates nnothcr person's affection, or thnt ono nation reciprocates another5 nation's good will. Thegcncrnl Idcu of reciprocity In business or In comtuerce partakes also of tho same sentiment thnt It is pleasant and equitable that nations hhould Interchange commodities on a reciprocal plan. Tho ways nnd means committee of tho house of representatives Is engaged In the task of compiling n tariff bill to secure a bigger revenue to tho treasury, which is to bo discussed during the, extra session of the Fifty-fift- h congress that will be convoked soon after tho Installation of the presidentelect. And we arc now assured on unimpeachable authority that "reciprocity" Is to bo ono of tho leading features of the new measure. Now, while reciprocity is a very pretty arrangement In the abstract, ns well as In any individual case, it (often happens that it is' nn utterly Inequitable system of doing' business. It looks well, for example, to say that the United States government expects to havo reciprocity with Germany; If she'ndmlt freo of duty our pork, canned ments, etc., which she has teen treating quite sourvlly, wo shall admit her wlno und sugar free of duty. Tho arrangement may bo completely satisfactory nnd equitable lu so far as Germany may be regnrded ns one Individual national entity, and the United States another individual JJUllUllill en tity. But If wo look at the matter n little more closely, the equitable look reciprocity will of this much-laude- d take on quite a different iippenrancc. Tho arrangement thnt Germany snail admit American pork, canned meats, etc., free of duty within her borders Is a very delightful arrangement for the millionaire, and packers of Chicago. It will glvonn enormous lllllp to their business, nud will help multi ply rapidly tho millions they havo nl ready. But in order thnt this reclproc- ity should bo strictly equitable, the nnd packers of Chicago should give up some ndvnntngc which they already possess In return for the big additional ndvnntngc which they foresee coming to them. No other kind or class of industry in the United States should bo punished, or bo made to pay, for the benefit which the reciprocity will confer on the of tho west. But the peculiarity of tho proposed reciprocity Is tliatthehog-killcrsnretget the benefit of it, and thnt the u and sugar-grower- s arc to bt iruado to pay for that benefit. And It will be admitted that reciprocity ol that sori is not equitable.
