ComesHear Hitting It Sometimeswhen we g^t both sides of^a question we do not yet have the^truth. This is illustrated by the dis^^cussion of the question as to whether^Mm tariff is a tax. The ultra protec^^tionists say it is never a tax; the free^traders, that it is always a tax. As^is usually the case with extremists,^neither is right. It is in the nature of^a tax until it stimulates home pro^^duction to an extent that the article^produced is as cheap at home, as^abroad. Beyond this point it is iii no^sense a tax upon the home consumer.^And their being other benefits arising^from home competition, beside the^cheapening ot home production, the^tax feature of the tariff is in many^ways modified in the interest of the^consumer. Extremists on either side^will no doubt fail to accept this view^of the case; but it is made chiefly for^conservative people who want the^truth^regardless of what party it^favors, or what party it hurts.^Texas^Stockman.
