I'UKSDAY, JUNK 12, 1881).
WAGES IN CHINA.
The Tinted States (.'onsiil-Uciicriil
in China 1ms collected some interest
intr statistics on the pioscnt state of
wages among the woiking elttsses in
Chinn. Skilled workmen, who, in n
sense, might be considered artists,
those who have to do with decora
tion, embroideiing of silk, porcelain
paintiig, &c. even when they have
attained consldeiable reputation, can
scarcely earn as much as will keep
them, and enable them to lay apart
what will cover the cost of their
funeral. Jewellers, who have a
great tesponsibilily aie somewhat
belter paid ; whilst the highest wages,
four shilling to eight shillings per
week, are obtained by the silk wea
vers. The average earnings per
week, all over, are: For masters,
Pis. (id. ; for workmen, Gs. ; for
women and childicn, '2s. The master
lives, as a rule, in his workshop ; hu
lias 4 to 0 worth of household
goods, and spends about 14 for
iood, 7 for lent, 2 for clothing,
and consideis himself foitunatc if
he has fiom CO to 8 over. The
unmarried workman lives with his
relatives or friends, lie spends for
food 9. for lodging about -18s., and
for clothing about 30-. Women and
childi en .spend every cent they earn.
The peasant earns from -lid. to 7d.
a day. Diuimr harvest time he
makes Is. a week, with board, which
is estimated at iAil. per day. They
are foitunatc who aie in a position
to save 15s. a year. Day laboiers,
oorters. wheelbarrow men and
sailors earn from 2Ad. to Is. 2d. a
day. In West China the porters,
who have to carry from 120 to 150
kilogrammes of tea, in the mountain
ous regions, make Is. a day. The
ordinary day laboier makes -Is. Id.
per month, and only spends Is.
Gold washers receive 2 Ad. to 7d. a
day. A gang of seven men can
wash 20 tons of gold sand daliy.
They are having a real lively time
in Nc'wpoit, at Khode Island city,
and a couple of'tho high-toned ic
sidents of the city aie making a
regular circus for the folks to laugh
ail. It seems the two men live
neighbors to each other, and as a
matter of course, became involved
in a dispute about the lino fence
which scperated them. The man
who claimed that the fence encroach
ed three inehes'upon his property,
went out the other morning to tear
it down, when his neighbor came
out and coolly sitting down on the
front steps turned the water hose
on him and drove him away. The
neighbor relumed the cold water
move with a shower Of bricks, but
was arrested and conveyed to the
station. Bcfoie he could get out
his neighbor had repaired the fence,
aud when he went to tearing the
fence down again he found his
neighbor on deck with the hose.
The man with the hose promises to
protect the fence and drown his
neighbor if the water supply holds
out. PeeJcl8 Hun
