"We denounce the Republican protection as a fraud, a robbery of the great majority of the American people for the benefit of the few. We declare it to be a fundamental principle of the Democratic party that the Federal Government has no constitutional Dower to impose and collect tariff duties, except for the purposes of revenue only, and we demand that the collection of such taxes shall be limited to the necessities of the Government. when honestly and economically administered."

Mr. Jones, on behalf of the Committee on Resolutions, offered to accept Mr. Neal's amendment as an addition. The amendment was finally adopted as a substitute by a vote of 564 to 342.
