Hi CEO. S. McKENZIE, Manager
(Continued from page a.)
Lest it should sound inconsistent,
coming from 01m who has tried to
have a higher duty placed on the
commodity in which he himself
deals,. it should be explained that
he reconciles the word and the act
in this manner: under the Diugley
Law, the average tariff is fifty per
cent ad valorem. Mr. llavcmeyer
advocates a tariff wall of level
height, instead of one that towers
for one industry and is hollowed
out for another. A horizontal ten
per cent inipojt would be sufficient
whether the article were steel or
woolens or well, for sugar he is
frank enough to say that eight per
cent would be ample. One may
draw conclusions from the career of
his trust as to whether it is suffer
ing from anything more serious
Turning over the record of the
Sugar Trust, one may not be able
to see that what Mr. Carnegie calls
"the grand step toward cheaper
products for the people" has been
taken by it in any but a halting
manner. Nevertheless it has taken
it. A slightly lessened margin is
its footprint. While advancing
and depressing the price to the con
sumer as it saw fit, and paying
dividends on an increasing capitali
zation, it was not in the long run
enlarging the difference between
what was paid for raw and what
was charged for" refined. Fear of
competition, actual conflict to over
come those who were striving after
the same gain, may have been the
impelling cause probably it was;
yet the result is what it is, and
ought to bear a little upon the trust
"Independents are increasing
constantly asserts Claus Spreckels,
Jr., who is himself independent of
the trust, "and the Sugar Trust's
business is accordingly decreasing."

A L'AliAUE OV ICE.
Empress of Husslu Projected the
First or Its Kind.
Catharine II, Kuipress of Russia,
was one of the greatest sovereigns
that ever reigned over that country.
She was likewise the cause of there
being no longer any female rulers
of the land, for her son, Paul, who
succeeded her, both hated and
feared her and issued an order lim
iting the future succession to the
male members of the imperial fami
ly. Before Catharine there had
been several female rulers, and, as
a rule, they were good ones, too.
She was, therefore, believes the
Baltimore American, directly the
cause of the present troubled stale
of the succession of Russia, the four
little daughters of the Czar having
no chance of the throne and there
being no sou. She was a woman
of magnificent tastes, which she
generally managed to gratify. She
likewise was possessor of a certain
number of whims. Among these
was the project of having a palace
of ice built for her. This she act
ually put into execution. There
was not a timber in the whole
Building, which was of sufficiently
large dimensions. Walls, ceilings,
windows doors, staircases every
thing was made of ice. Blocks of
ice were laid upon each other, and,
without any cement, became frozen
together and apparently solid. The
structure,. during the time it lasted,
which was quite a while, was as
firm as a rock. Inside, everything
was on a magnificent scale. Chairs,
tables, beds, furniture of all kinds
were there as in a genuine residence;
mirrors and pictures hung on Hie
walls, lamps illuminated the whole
palace, gleaming through shades
of translucent ice; wreaths of flow
ers and vines, made of the same
brittle material, decorated the
panels cut it) the cold walls; the
whole structure was a dream of
beauty. It would seem almost in
credible that such a feat could be
accomplished, but accomplished it
whs. The Kmpress had her costly
and novel plaything, and then, in
the manner of Ktnpresses and hit-

j That the bunko steerer is a very
ancient profession uppears from
certain musty records unearthed by
Charles Gordon in preparing his
history of Newgate.
Here are facts related in a docu
ment dated 1376: "Nicholas Pres
tone, tailor, and John Outlawe were
attached to make answer to John
Hille and William, his brother, in
a plea of deceit and falsehood, for
that the same John Outlawe, at
divers times between the Feast of
Our Lord's Nativity and the first
Sunday in Lent then next ensuing,
came to the said John Utile and
William and asked if they wished
to gain some money at tables or at
checkers, commonly called 'quck,'
to which they said 'Yes'; where
upon the said John Outlawe said !
that they must follow him, and he
would show them the place and a
man there from whom they could
easily win, atid further said that he
would be partner with them to win
"And they followed him to the
house of the said Nicholas, in Fri
day street, and there they found
the said Nicholas, with a pair of
tables, on the outside of which was
painted a checker board, that is
called a 'quek.' And the said
Nicholas asked them if they would
play at tables for money, where
upon said complainants, knowing
of no deceit or ill intent, being
urged and encouraged thereto by
the same John Outlawe, played
with him at tables, and lost a sum
of money owing to false dice.
"And the said John then left
them to play alone, and after that
they still continued to lose. The
tables were then turned and the
complainants played with the de
fendant Nicholas at 'quek' until
they had lost at the games of tables
and 'quek' 39s. 2d. After which
the complainants, wondering at
their continued losing, examined
the board at which they had been
playing and found it to be false and
deceptive, seeing that in three
quarters of the board all the (black)
points were so depressed that all
the white points in the same quar
ters were higher than the black.
"They inspected and examined
also the dice with which they had
at first played at tables, and found
them to be false and deceptive.
And because that they would play
no longer the said Nicholas and
John Outlawe stripped John Hille
of a cloak, 16 shillings in value,
which they still retain." Atlanta

A Historic Hell.
There is a bell at Washington
whose history dates back to the
very beginning of modern civiliza
tion on this continent, says the
Pittsburg Dispatch. It' is a trifling
affair as regards size, its dimensions
being only &x6y inches; yet its
notes sounded to call the great dis
coverer, Columbus, to prayer and !
sacred worship. It was brought '
from Spain in December, 1493, and !
set up in a church at San Domingo.
It was the special gift of King Fer- '
diuaud, and bears the initial of his 1
name ("F.") in old Gothic charac
ters upon its surface. When La '
Vega, the new City of the Plains,
was founded, church and bell were
bodily removed to it. There its
notes smote upon the air to sum
mon the tardy Spaniards to mass,
and served, how frequently none
can tell, to recall to the minds of
the venturesome explorers memor
ies of their sunny homeland located
far away across the sea.
