    Excerpt from Speech of Hon. J. H. Walker: Of Massachusetts in the House of Representatives, January 17 and 20, 1894 The House being in Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union, and having under consideration the bill (H. R. 4864) to reduce taxation, to provide revenue for the Government, and for other purposes - Mr. Cockran said: That brings me back to the proposition of the gentleman from Maine. I say, that the importation of $250,000,000 worth of goods can not occur unless you export $250,000,000 worth of goods to pay for them. You must pay for them in some form or another, because nobody has suggested in this House as a possibility in actual life the presentation, as a gift, of a large quantity of goods by one nation to another. I except from the operation of that remark the gentleman from Massachusetts, who is not bound by the ordinary rules of controversy or the ordinary limitations of common sense. [Laughter.] Mr. Walker. Mr. Chairman, there has been no epithet that could be applied to manufacturers, no criticism or depreciation of their character, their patriotism, and their intelligence, within the technical lines of parliamentary law, that has not been visited upon them, both upon those manufacturers who are representing their constituents upon this floor, and all the other manufacturers in this country: and I, for one, protest against the further conduct of debate in that manner. Let me say here that this proposition of the Ways and Means Committee, that protection is a robbery, but that they propose to continue this robbery to a degree only, rises to the same level of morals that they rise to in political economy when they propose to take off half of the protection now and five years hence the other half. It rises to the same dignity in morals and in political economy that it would in surgery if a physician proposed to amputate a man's leg four inches to-day, four inches a month hence, and four inches at the end of another thirty days, and so on, in order that he might be saved the pain of taking off his whole leg at one time. [Laughter.] I want to say. Mr. Chairman, to you, and to the House through you, that there is not a manufacturer in this country who does not demand absolute free trade now and once for all, rather than to take it by piecemeal. It is better for the manufacturer. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
