Laissez Faire and the Tariff

In his great book, Master of the Senate, volume 3 of The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Robert A. Caro describes the Progressive Era Senate Republican leaders as holding an “unshaken belief in laissez faire and the protective tariff.” Just before this he describes the hardship  the tariff imposed on working people and noted that the tariff was (as the saying went back then) “the mother of trusts.”

Did those Republicans believe in square circles too?
