A Protective Tariff on Flour. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 27 January 1880
A Protective Tariff oa Flour. WE perceive that the ?farmers anil others interested in the growth of wheat on the Downs will take advan tage of the presence of the Governor in Warwick by presenting tv memorial to his Excellency, seeking the removal of certain inequalities connected with the importation of wheat and fluur. A duty is placed on tlio former, whilst tho latter is positively admitted free, and,the farmers aeol; a more equitable adjustment, not only iu behalf of thcui gdyes, but llje whoip population, who, as consumers, arc equally interested in the quijBticm. Whether the petitioners aro prudent in seeking a protective duty on flour its a matter fairly open to discussion. Wo suspect Unit consu mers generally would roceivc llic pro position with disfavor, because it would iir mediately advance the price of bread, although a sovereign per ton on flour would not make a very appreciable ad vance to small consumers. Bu' squat ters and large employers of labor who cater on a wide...
