Excerpt from The Canadian Farmer, the General Consumer, and the Wool Tariff

Much has been said and written during the last few years on the woolen industry of Canada, but until the last session of Parliament the subject has had little consideration from the standpoint of the farmer and the general consumer.

In the following pages the writer endeavors to ascertain how the interests of the farmer and the general public are affected by the Canadian tariff laws as they stand, and to compare the history of the wool industry of Canada with that of the United States, Great Britain and other great manufacturing countries.

It will be seen from the period of time covered by this history that for the defects of the present woolen tariff neither political party is wholly to blame. The woolen tariff is the haphazard growth of various administrations, alternating in the degree of protection afforded to the different branches of the industry, and consistent only in one respect - its omission of all consideration to the farmer who grows the wool.

No theory of political economy is here advocated. The writer simply accepts the fact that our revenues are now raised, not by direct taxation, but by duties, more or less protective, on imports of goods, and his only plea is that the advantages of the tariff should be equitably shared among the people whose labor contributes to the upbuilding of the country. Since we have a tariff intended to promote home manufactures, is it not reasonable that this tariff should be so designed as to secure the production in Canada of those things most essential to the physical life of the people? And of these first needs is there anything more important than clothing?

In this pamphlet an attempt is made to go back to first principles.
