TARIFF REFORM. To the Editor. Dear Sir,—I saw a letter in your issue of last week on "Tariff Reform," in which the statement was made that tariffs did not lessen unemployment. This state- ment is so contrary to the facts of the case that I feel I cannot allow it, to pass. My political opinions are mainly liberal, so I do not write from any party point of view. It is well-known that enormous sums of British capital have been invested abroad in industries of various kinds be. cause a better return has been obtained on capital so invested. These industries have been established in almost every country in the world be- cause they have been protected by tariffs, and the proprietors have been able to ob- tain higher prices for their productions. These industrial concerns have gtven rise to an enormous number of people being employed, in other words have lessened unemployment, have been a, benefit to all classes in the countries where they exist. Indeed we have the remarkable fact of working men in America, begging the n nn I Government not to reduce the tariff there, which speaks for itself. Yours faithfully, TRUTH.
