by [Free Trade]
n.p.: n.p., 1892. First edition. Broadsheet. Edgewear, a few minor tears, else a very good copy.. 2 pp. A strong anti- free trade pro-labor broadsheet in support of the protectionist McKinley Tariff bill passed during Harrison's administration, showing the low agricultural wages around the world and how American agriculture and ultimately manufacturing would be destroyed. Special emphasis and detailed information given on rice production and quoting a report by the U.S. Minister to China: "Either this tariff must be maintained to maintain the difference of wages or one of two things must inevitably occur: we must abandon production of many of the most valuable fields of industry here or our labor must come down to the standard of the competing labor; and we may discuss our theories until the frosts of December and we cannot alter the fact..." Apparently unrecorded. We could find no copies in OCLC, NUC, or other reference sources. (Inventory #: 37348)
