Irfnder of German Reichstag Out- Hues IIIH Schemc-A ^Sykjem of Protective Tariff* Cohliluerea the Proper Hynjgdj%_ _ ROME, April 14.—Count von Schwer- in Loewita, a leading member of the reichstag and president of .the-German urgricultuml council, who has just ar- rived here, will present a proposition to the agricultural congress for a~Eu- ropean agricolo-commercial zollverein to. meet American competition. The count outlines his plan as follows: \My propositidu does not exactlj' contemplate a European zollverein, byt ineYely an understanding between the European f^untries to put tlipnisnlvps in a position to safeguard their agri- cultural interests through a combined system of protective tariffs. . I shall\ submit my proposition at today's ses- sion of the congress, and it will ex-* plain my idelis. \My scheme is based on the differ- ences in the natural conditions of pro- duction which will have to be leveled by protectionist duties. These differ- ences are considerably less between the European states, especially the cen- IrurslulesTthan between the European states and the over sea countries. The -unequal—competition—of— the- non-Eu— Topean prouuer is growing daily' ow- Ing to the diminution in the expenses of transportation from the non-Eu- ropean countries, especially America and the British colonies. \I understand that the economic su- periority of large industrial territories tends toward economic coalition; hence a coalition of the European countries is absolutely necessary. The efforts in this direction have failed ^hitherto because no government wiBhes to aban- don its independence in this field in favor of such a Union, and it is also difficult to agree on a common tariff.\ Count Schwerin Loewitz also Intends to submit a proposition with a view to preventing non-European goods landed in one country, from being ex- ported therefrom as originating from -the country in which they were first landed.
