ABSTRACT
At a time when the cost of living is so high and unemployment so widespread that millions of people are finding it difficult to obtain means of subsistence, the U.S. Congress is asked to make dearer the commodities essential to support of human life. At the very time when extraordinary efforts are afoot to save from utter ruin great nations, devastated by the World War I, it is proposed by the Tariff Bill to declare a savage commercial war upon the whole human family. This new scheme as a substitute for the honest, fair price that the importer pays in competition in the open markets of the world for his merchandise, which price is not at all within his control, is objectionable.
