BATON ROUGE, MAY 7, 1881. S BATON ROUG3E MAY 7, 1881. WWRICEING THE EANWPACtIY Eus. " We present to our readers an extract from the St. Louis Republican, which shows what the effect of the Protec tive Tariff is upon the South in the matter of cotton ties alone. The cot ton grow&s each year pay to six man ufacturers of ties some hundreds of thousands more than they would have to pay for the same article manufac tured abroad, yet they are not satis ied. When we come to recapitulate, the many articles on which the people have to pay a bonus to the compara tive few Eastern and Northern mann facturers, the fact becomes apparent . that the tillers of the soil are the beasts of burthen of the favored tmo '!- nopolists of this country. While raw sugars from Havana are admitted, free of duty, through the ports of the Pacific, and for a very small one from the West Indies, the sugar refiners are protected by a high tariff in manufacturing these raw su gars into crushed, to the detriment o...
