such a way as to call for :the juicket J

Senator Simmons for an hour and a
quarter addressed the Senate upon the
subject of reciprocal trade with Can-'

He declared himself opposed to it
upon the ground of iniquities and dis
criminations. He refuted the sui;e&-
tion of some that reciprocity is a Dem-
cratic doctrine. He said from its in
ception it has been regarded as the
handmaiden of protection; that it ad
mirably fitted in with the protective
theory, but had no place in a tariff for

this were the product of the farm, soil,

uf these products are put upon the free
list resulting in a loss ef over $4,7!0,000
in revenue The other $7,000,000 were
manufactured products, largely the man
ufacture of farm products and that the
duties on many ot these are now prac
tically prohibitive and the slight reduc
tions proposed in this agreement leave
them still protective.
He said it therefore appeared that the
bill was about six-sevenths free trade
and one-seventh protection, while the
principle of tariff for revenue, if recog
nized at all, is recognize j only to a neg
licrible degree. The Senator declared
himself opposed both to free trade and
protection. He said both views were
bad and vicious. The Democratic par
ty, he declared, had never been a free
trade party and never would be.
He denounced the treaty because of
the discriminations against the farmers
and in favor of the manufacturers That
while it put the farmer's product upon
the free list it did not reduce the price
ut the manufactured things .he bad to
buy. y He insisted if the products of the
farmer and land owners were to be put
upon the free list to reduce the cost of
living, the manufactured things which
the farmer buvs and which enter into
the cost of living should likewise be re
Takinsr no wheat he showed that as
long as it remains what nature and the
farmer's toil ha made it, it was made
from undei' thij agreement, but the
minute it entered the flour mills and
was converted into an eatable product,
it goes off the free list; likewise, barley,
when the farmer sold it it is free, as
the brewer sells it, it is made dutiable
live animals, as the farmer sells them,
are free, but as soon as the packers
have slaughtered them their product
goes on the dutiable list.
He declared, as in the case of putting
hides on the free list, the benefit of any
reduction in the price of the farmer'
product would not insure to the concurs
er, but to the flour mills, packing hous
es and breweries, who would put the
saving in their pockets and charge the
consumer the same as before.
He said while the standard price of
what was fixed in Europe, that price
was modified by the circumstances and
conditions surrounding the domestic
market and he showed that wheat was
always from 10 to 15 cents higher in
American than Canadian markets be

said, if it was true as some contend
ed, that this agreement would only re
duce the price of farm products in the
territory nesr the CanaJian border,
then the accurintf benefits, to tha con
sumer, if there are any,1 would likewise
be confined to that territory.
He said one of the chief arguments
409 88 in favor of the treaty was that the eon
ceosion given us by Canada would open
the markets of that coustry for our
manufactured products. He referred to
