Description

Excerpt from Tariff Hearings Before the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, Sixtieth Congress, 1908-1909, Vol. 6: Schedule L, Silks and Silk Goods; Schedule M, Pulp, Papers, and Books; Schedule N, Sundries Experiments for a number of years conducted at national expense have demonstrated that wherever in this country the Osage orange (our common hedge lant) will thrive silk cocoons can be produced, the tender leaves of t at tree being as good, if not better, food for the silkworms than mulberry leaves. That much is repeatedly set forth in public official reports. Ex-governor Colman, of this State, when in charge of the Agricultural Department durin one of Cleveland's administrations, said the solution of the silk in ustry (raw silk and cocoons) here would be a home market; that the price in competi tion with China, France, Italy, and Japan is the mountain our home producers will not climb. You know how to get over that mountain. An import duty of $5 per pound on cocoons, with corresponding increase for each stage of manufacture, would place the home producer of cocoons on top of that mountain, from whence they would have a down - hill pull.'
