Excerpt from Tariff Hearings: Before the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, Sixtieth Congress; Tuesday, December 8, 1908
If there is any industry in the United States that deserves proteo tion, in my judgment, it. Is the textile industry, and there is no ques tion but most industries do need very considerable protection. The need of the textile industry for protection does not, however, call for exorbitant or unreasonable rates, nor rates that signify misjudgment and miscalculation. I am opposed to that sort of tariff which meets the definition of the Supreme Court of the United States as robbery in the name of the law called taxation, but the putting of steel at a very low duty or on the free list is no reason for reducing the rates, for instance, on hosiery, which. As far as I know, are necessary as now imposed, being 65 per cent and less.
