Flounces Ara Fashionable.
Flounces are dally becoming more
fashionable, some of the spring and
summer skirts being flounced from
hem to waist. A graceful effect Is
produced by the flounces taking an
upward line at the back. A lovely
little frock of white gauze over rose
pink taffeta is flounced to the waist,
each flounce being edged with very
narrow black lace. The waist has a
bertha of muslin edged with the lace,
and the sleeves consist of numerous
tiny lace-edged ruffles. A sash of
rose taffeta, edged all the way round
with black luce, completes this de

FREE EAW MATERIAL
AN INDEFINITE TERM NOT GEN-
E RALLY UNDERSTOOD.
In tha Seven Billion's Worth of to
called Raw Materials Annually Pro
duced Domestic Labor and Wages

Says the Clinton, Iowa, Dally Age:
"The president thinks that cutting
off the tariff on trust articles would
not curb the trusts and might ruin
lesser manufactures. To prevent
ruination of that kind all that Oo
Kress would have to do would be In
connection with 'cutting off the tariff
on trust articles,' to also rut off tne
tariff on foreign raw material. With
the great majority of manufacturing
Industries in this country free raw
material would enable them to pro
duce their wares at a reduction of at
least 25 per cent, and leave a good
profit for the mill and better wages
for the laborer."
The editor of the Dally Ago should
rat know what "raw material" Is and
hat it, means before he echoes the
orn out fallacy that has been explod
ed times without number. KlrBt, we
will tell him In the words of Henry C.
arey what "raw material," as he uses
the term, Is:
"All the products of the earth are In
rn finished commodity and raw mate
rial. Coal and ore are the finished
commodity of the miner, but the raw
matrial of pig Iron. The latter Is the
finished commodity of the smelter, yet
only the raw material of the puddler
and of him who rolls the bar. The bar
Is again the raw material of sheet Iron
and that, In turn, becomes tha raw
material of the nail and spike."
It has been said only the trees in
the wild forests, the ore and the roal
of the unmlned earth and the ungath-
ered product of the sea . are raw
material. All else Is more or less fin
ished product, on which labor to a
greater or less degree has been ex
pended. But let us call all unfinished
products which enter Into the produc
tion of a finished product "raw mater
ial." In other words, let us call all
fuel, all food, and the basis of tex
tiles and finished Iron and steel "raw
material" com and wood, lumber and
logs, Iron and copper, ore. wool, and
cotton, and raw silk, chemicals and
so on through the list. All these our
Iowa contemporary would have us put
on tho free list.
Well, to begin with, every one of
them which we do not produce at
home Is on the free list now. In 1902
we Imported "articles In a crude con
dition which enter into the various
processes of domestic industry" to the
value of $S:8,6o6,5!7. Of this, $:."!),-
6C9,66f worth, or nearly 80 per cent,
came In free of duty. These articles
admitted free of duty by the Dlngley
law number fully 500, and even more
it we consider different .kinds of
material. It would take several news
paper columns to name and describe
them. The per cent of all free im
ports In 1S02 was fifty-three, or more
than half of our entire importations.
Our importations of so-called "raw
material" In l'.Wi, 80 per cent of
which came In free, amounted to $328,
OiiO.OOO, while the average under the
Wllson-Gormun law was less than
Moreover, It may be stated that
the Importations of manufacturers'
material during the present fiscal
year of 1903 will exceed $500,000,000
Now let us consider the protected
"raw material." The census gives the
value of our manufacturers In 1900 as
113,041,287,498, and the cost of materi
als used as $7,348,144,755. Suppose
we had Imported the whole of that
$7,350,000,000 worth of material. What
would such an annual Importation
mean? Simply a loss of wages and
Income amounting to fully $6,000,000,
000 a year. And when the farmer has
no market for his wool, or the miner
for his ore and coal, or the lumberman
for his lumber or the millions of work
men for their protiuct, how are they
going to be able to buy the products
of others? That condition of things
was just what brought the disasters of
1894, '95, '96 and '97, till the Dingley
law came to the rescue and brought
the opportunity to do our own work.
That is all there Is to this question
ot protection to the finished article or
tha sovalled raw material. It enables
us to do our own work, and with the
resulting wages and Int-omes both In
tha factory and on the farm we en
large the consumption; and the In-

creased demand for all commodities
bring Increased production and mors
business for tha railroads, tha mar
chants and personal service. If so
called free raw material did enable
some of our manufacturers to produce
their wares at a reduction of 25 per
cent In cost, It would make 10,000,000
poor farmers and their families, and
throw out of work millions of laborers
now earning from S2 to $5 a day.
Fully three persons are engaged In
producing our so-called raw material
to one engaged In producing tha last
finished product. Now shall wa throw
three men out of employment to bene
fit one, even were that one to be bene
fited? But the one would not be bene
fited, for his market would be gone.
We advise our Iowa friends to look
Into this matter of free raw material
thoroughly, Instead of the superficial
glance they throw at it with a. con
clusion based on an argument as falla
cious as an empty wind bag. When i'
comes to competing In the foreign
market it should be remembered that
all materials that enter into products
to be exported are 99 per cenf free,
a feature of our tariff law that free
traders rarely consider when talking
about "free raw materials" and "the
markets of the world." American
What Canada Wants.
To suppose that Canada Is yearning
for reciprocal relations with the
United States In order that she may
receive an Increased quantity of manu
factured exports from this country, It
to cherish a delusion. Canada wants
nothing of the sort. What she wants
Is to become Industrially independent
and self-reliant, to encourage and build
up her own Industries. The Hamilton
Spectator negatives the assumption
by the Buffalo Express that the Cana
dian government desires to negotiate
a reciprocity agreement with the
United States, and says:
"Canada is now Importing many
more millions of dollars' worth of
American made goods than the people
of this country want to see. And It
Is a reduction of that Importation, not
an increase, that the people of Canada
The preferential of 33 1-3 per cent

will not be removed because Canada
wants to trade more extensively with

Canada wants to do more of her own
work and to decrease her Imports in
Free Hides, Free Wool, Free Every-
Fiee hides would be followed by
free wool. Free wool would be fol

made of wool. Thus the whole sy

have reached that point where they
must either stand by protection of

Intended solely for the benefit of the
manufacturers In the Eastern pro
vinces. The low tariff advocates of
the United States used to tell the same
story to the Western farmers. They
said there were no manufacturing In
austrles In the West and never could
be. The protectionists, on the other
hand, told the Western farmers that
the ultimate effect of protection would
be to cause the establishment ot fac
tories In the West as well as in the

high protection and they are now reap
