THE SUGAR TARIFF.
Our very intelligent contemporary, the
Marysville Democrat, after referring to
the free listing of sugar, says that on
April Ist when the markets opened, the
price of sugar at Chicago "was two cents
lower, and about the same iv New York
and Philadelphia; iv San Francisco it
had only affected the market half a ceut a
pound. Since then the price at each of
these places has advanced, and to-day
thero is no more thau oue cent a pound
difference in the East, and not any differ
ence iv the markets of the Pacific Coast.
It proceeds to charge the combinations
and trusts for this state of affairs. The
revised tariff, known as the McKinley
bill, provides that sugar below No. IG
Dutch standard should be free of duty on
and after April 1, 1891. Thus when the
raw material comes in free of duty and the
tariff is left to stand as to the refined
article, the consumer gets nothing what
ever. And then comes the hopeful view
taken by the Democrat that after July 1,
1801, the provision of the tarifl" which pro
vides for a Government bounty of one
and three-quarter cents a pound on all
sugar grown in the United States, above
the standard of ninety, goes into effect,
and that should be of benefit in inducing
more people to engage in the growing of
the sugar beet, sorghum and cane. The
McKinley bill, while professing to place
a bounty on sugar, produced a situation,
entirely unfavorable to the production of
sugar at home. The growing of beets and
sorghum for sugar is simply a production
of the raw material or unrefined sugar,
and that has been placed ou the free list.
From the standpoint of tho cultivator of
the soil, there are two ptil.Mil of the sugar
product. The prod .-el ion of raw material
and the refiued article. The consumer
consumes only the latter.
The producer of the raw material iv
this instanco will find the competing raw
material admitted duty free. The grower
of beets is thus placed in competition
with the cheap labor of the world. The
refiner will purchase the cheapest artie.e.
There is nothing compelling him to buy
sugar beets, or sorghum or cane. We
would havo a parallel case as between the
grape cultivator and the wine cellar. If
there was a possibility of a large importa
tion of grapes, and (.'ongress had placed
grapes on tho free list and placed a tariff
on wine, the vineyardists would have un
derstood tho situation at once. They
would have seen that the vineyard
business h;\d been sacrificed to the wine
maker and wine merchant. From tho
very outset the friends of the McKinley
bill declared that the revision of the tariff
relating to sugar would induce the people
of America te make their own sugar.
When we reach tlie practical working of
the bill, we find first, that the removal of
the duty from the raw material did not
reduce the cost to the consumers in tho
i ottod Statea. The first realised fact con
demns the Mil. The eaeond fact is that
it furnishes to the refiners, sugar combi
nations nnd trusts a cheaper material out
of which to make a more costly article,
the price of refined sugar remaining the
same after a duty of from two to two and
a half cents per pound has been taken off
tho raw material.
The thin! Raped Of tha Q_MM relates to
the bounty on home production, and
that is to go into effect July Ist of tho
present year. As wo approach the time,
we Bnd that the free listing of unrefined
sugar simply offers a foreign competition
to the production of tho domestic article.
Our contemporaries will say that it is too
early to predict results. Let it now bo
noted that beet* planted ill the spring of
'Id would have enjoyed the benefit of tho
bounty. There has boon no con
siderable additional plantiug. A very
few, perhaps. who knew no bet
tor than to believe that some great
good was to DOOM out of the Mc-
Kinley bill, may have planted a few
acres, but we venture the prediction now
that the homo production of raw material
to be worked into refined sugar by the
refiners will not be encouraged by the
bounty. We have but a short time to
Chile, to secure permanent peace, will
have to amend her constitution. It now
provides that the immediate re-election
of a President shall not bo had, but after
fclie oxnirin'ir.n of nnn term he nan contest
anew for the office. An ambitious Presi
dent, therefore, conspires to be succeeded
by one who will give over much of official
control to his predecessor, that he may
lay wires for his second term.
Balmaceda has been doing this, and
hence the present brutal war. Brutal,
because from all accounts the usual rules
of warfare are ignored, and tbe rebellion
proceeds with the most atrocious cruelty
recorded against any modern nation.
The rights of non-combatants are ig
nored; towns and cities are burned or
bombarded without giving women and
children and non-combatants opportu
nity to escape; prisoners are butchered
without time to breathe a prayer, and the
wounded bayoneted on the ground as
taken. Even the dead are refused decent
burial, aud all pri%-ate rights are set at
The latest dispatches are to the effect
that the rebels, who have entire control
ofthe navy, are winning all the battles,
and steadily gaining ground. They have
the sympathy of the great mass of the
people, and embrace nearly all the better
classes. Tho President, on his part, has
the treasury; feeds his army royally,
pays it promptly, has force sufficient to
imprison, and has control ofthe forts and
arsenals. He has crowded the jails with
political prisoners., and punishes his
enemies with the most cruel severity. In
fact, it is a civil war characterized by
many of the horrors of barbarism.
While Balmaceda is a shrewd man, a
capable official, a capital manager, and
an astute politician, he is cruel as a com
mander, and heartless and unscrupulous
as Presidont. He has so controlled the
recent elections that he has practically
named the Congress, and thus has sur
rounded himself with creatures of his
will. If he dared, and he may do so, he
would declare himself Dictator; possibly
he may make the bitterness of the civil
w rar the pretext for such a declaration
very soon, holding that tho need of the
country at this time is for a stronger than
a constitutional arm.
By law he goes out of office in Septem
ber next; he came in as the creature of
Santa Maria, agreeing to so cast his inllu
ence as President that the latter might
succeed him. Once in power, however,
he threw Santa Maria over and figured to
put in office as his successor a member
of his own Cabinet, one who will insure
his own re-election. Out of this action
has grown the present rebellion, for
though Santa Maria is now dead, liis
party lives, and the rebels are doing bat
tle for it.
The idea ofthe Minnesota Senate must
be that long skirts insure modest de
meanor upon the stage. Nothing could
be more erroneous. Behavior in long
skirts may be more immodest than any
dressing in short raiment. The legisla
tion that attempts to make people modest
is a failure. Where the moral sentiment
is sound and good taste dominant there
is no need for statutes to protect the sensi
bilities of theater-goers. The only possi
ble defense for such a law as is proposed
in Minnesota, is that susceptible youth
may not be influenced improperly. But
it is doubtful if even this can be main
tained in this case, since the statute is so
sweeping as to prohibit the most chaste
and proper dramas, where the costumery
ofthe era ofthe play would require peas
ant girls to appear with short skirts;
or where, as in several of Shakespeare's
plays, a woman assumes male attire of
the period. It ought to be sufficient for
Minnesota to do as have all the other
States, inhibit immoral and lewd exibi
tions of any kind, leaving to enlightened
sentiment to say, in each case, what is in
decent and vicious within the meaning
ofthe law. If the Minnesota idea is car
ried out to its legitimate conclusion, the
j people of that Sfcite may presently be
known by the cut of their hair or the
I fashion of their beards.
The Women Managers of the Chicago
Fair have fallen ont. It is not surpris
ing. They undertook a business task
that is beyond their capacity probably.
Non-essentials have usurped the func-
tions of the commission, and tho whole
board is by the ears as to whether Pho'be
Couzens, the St. Louis lawyer, is or is
not Secretary of the Executive Com
mittee. What difference does it make?
If the Executive Committee has any
business to do, let it go about it and
ignore Miss Couzens or recognize her, as
it pleases. If the idea of these women is
that their duty hinges on questions such
as those, the sooner they disband the bet
ter. It is not exactly clear why the
Woman's Board should have been
created at all.
