What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Carnegie ^nd th e T a r if f A.nocable article from Andrew Car- pegte, dealing with the tariff, will ap­ pear in the' forthcoming December magazine. ( - - ■ , ih’e ironmaster takes’ the position that ‘‘infant industries” qo loiiger-ueed protection; that the steel and other in: Castries halve now grown—beyond tho - need of tarif f protection; that dut ies on luxuries used bv ' the rich should be jualutainedj-but that those ou inanufac- tnred articles should be reduced great- (v or abolished entirely when no longer Mr. Carnegie’s article is entitled“ My Experience With and Views ,pu the. Tariff.” lie first reviews.^jhe tariff movements down to the present Difig- ley law. giving a number of anecdotes, in which he figured with the leaders of thedifierent periods. He adds': “ Much water has run under the bridges since then. Many changes have occurred find hence many changes can be juilic^ iously made in the tariff. There is no doubt abont this; but, on the other „..hand, I. have.heenJed-to-the-conclus­ ion that conditions have changed so greatly ta the interval that the tariff rhould now be viewed from a stand­ point.” - The'writer assumes that a decided majority of o'ur voters are agreed: ‘-First, that it is advisable for new countries to encourage capital by pro­ jective duties, when seen to be tiecesr sary to develop new industries. --‘Second, that after full and exhaustive trials, if success be not finally attained, —jnclffprotectiott—should—ceasee-xcupi- ¡w noted hereunder. ■ Third, that should the experiment succeed, protection becomes necussary- iind should steadily but gradually be jiholished, provided that the .home sup­ ply of any article -absolutely necessary for the national safety shall not there­ by* be endangered. . Further oqjMr. Gar negjfrs ays;-“ We_; have beeome bv fa r ill e greaTi'-st'of - alf manutaefunng nations.

That* is tfee first aqd prime duty of congress. We should not forget that govern­ ment • expenditures rhave ’ increased enormously *in~recent^y-earancTtHat fe-Jditional revenue is \required. S Its second duty is to' reduce duties greatly 6n manufactured articles and torabolish-entirely-those-nolonger-uec- obtained and transported, and o.ui* out­ put per man is much greater, owing Chiefly to the large standardized orders obtainable only on our continent, the specialized rollMmlls, the machinery kept weeks upon/pnifonn Shapes With­ out change ot rolls, and’'other advant­ ages. The day has passed, when any foreign country cap seriously.effect our steel luauutifcture, tariff or no tariff. The republic lias Income the home of steel aud this is the age of steel. It may probahly he found that there ex­ ists ihe smaU manufacture of some specialty in ¿feel 'which still needs a measure of , protection.
