Mr. Stanley is an extensive manufacturer ofdryplates used in photography, and is a tariff reformer of a pronounced type. Mr. A. L. Goss another Maine republican, belieyes in the Mills bill and is only sorry that it does not go far enough. Mr. Goss is also a resident ot Lewiston. In the course of a conversation the other day Mr. Goss said: "I am a life long Republican. I am a Republican now, but I am tired of this everlasting twaddleabout protection. I was at Washington when the war tariff was first adopted. Senators Summer, Henry Wilson, Harris of Maryland and every leading republican adoDted it only as a matter ot neccssity, to be abolished at once after the necessity had passed away. And now, twenty-five years after, those dentical taxes are in existance, only increased. Talk about pauper labor! We hare pauper labor in these milis here. If operatives receive larger pay than in Canadian milis, they have been trained to do more work. Here they have the advantage of location, unsurpassed mechanical facilities, labor that is as cheap as any, and then to talk of their needing tobe 'protected' is nonsense." Mr. James Dempsey, manager of the Levviston Bleachery and Dye Works, is also in fator of the Mills bill.
