MR. HENRY TAYLOR ON PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 5 December 1876

M R. HENRY TAYLOR ON PRO - - TECTION. "A Utlt g iaM a d a tgpmrols tu."-POPU. Mr. IHEnR TATYon, the Unionist dolegato from England, has been lectur ing the Victorian workmen at Prahran 0 on the advantages of Free Trade, and 'his address, first published in the . Melbourne Argus, has been printed as a fly leaf and widely circulated. e There is not much in the address-the usual platitudes and customary logic of Mr. COLIN. CAuIPUELL and the party with whom the English delegate, since his advent, has been so closely asso ciated. From his speech it appears evident that Mr. TAYLOR has not even mastered the alphabet of the science as laid down by SsrITH, MILL and M'CULLovUII. Mr. TAYLOR said " he "took it that the price they had to " pay for any commodity represented " the amount of labor expended in pro "ducing that commodity. If they " paid more for a thing than it was "legitimately worth, there was, a " monuupoly somewhere which they "should strive to resist." Now we all know that monop...
