APRIL 24, 1911.-Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the state of

the Union and ordered to be printed.

Mr. DALZELI, from the Committee on Ways and Means, submitted

the following

VIEWS OF THE MINORITY.

[To accompany H. R. 4413.)

The pending bill was ordered reported not only without investigation, but without the semblance of consideration by the committee. It was stated in the committee that it would reduce revenue about $1,500,000, and it is now admitted that it will cut down the revenue by more than $10,000,000, and later admissions are likely substantially to increase this amount. The measure was christened by its authors "the farmers free-list bill," and it represents a transparent attempt at the manufacture of political capital. In view of the title which its friends have given it, it would at least have been proper to investigate the effect it is likely to bave upon the agricultural interests. The President of the United States felt it his duty to call Congress in special session to consider the Canadian reciprocity bill. That bill has already been acted upon by the House, and instead of bringing for. ward tariff bills, ill considered or not considered at all, for the purpose of administering political soothing sirup to particular classes of population, the undersigned are of opinion that the interests of the farmer and of every body else will be subserved if the country is spared from further political exploitation and further tariff legislation at the present time and adjournment is taken promptly after the reciprocity bill shall have been finally acted upon.
