Congressman of the 10th district, Charles M. Thomson, wrote a letter to his constituents discussing the Underwood Tariff Bill and earlier legistlation. In 1909, the Republicans framed the Payne-Aldrich Tariff Act. In 1912, the Democrats wanted to remove protections. Thomson described different points of view on the bill. The Progressive Party, in the Underwood Bill, does not want to remove all protection, like the Democrats, nor does it want to keep tariffs prohibitive, like the Republicans. The Progressives want to equalize competition between the U.S. and foreign countries. That party proposes creation of a non-partisan commission to oversee implementation of the Underwood Tariff Act. Thomson gives advice about how he would like the Tariff Act written.
