AMERICAN GOODS ABROAD.
Policy of Cheaper Sales Has Consent
of Both Parties.
Secretary Shaw estimates that out
of every .$1,000 worth of manufactures
exported from this countrv 30 cents'
worth are sold abroad cheaper than at
home. So far the complaint of the
Democrats that our manufactures sell
abroad cheaper than at home seems to
be true. But this is not as great a dis
count in the export trade as the ad
vantage given to manufactures in the
importation of raw materials, that they
may employ American labor at Amer
ican wages In the manufacture of goods
that, are to be sold abroad In competi
tion. It has beeu the policy of the Repub
lican party for a number of years to
encourage such competition In foreign
mai-Kets. lbe drawback on materials
Imported for manufactures that are to
be exported is not
peculiar to the j
le nrovialrkn am a I
Dlngley law. The same provision was
in the Mckinley law. and It was Incor
porated In the Wilson-Gorman law bv
the Democrats. It was kept In the law

cause It became the policy of the gov
ernment by common consent of both
Last year we Imported $10,000,000
worth of materials which went Into
manufactures for export . and the draw
back was paid on about 5 per cent of
our imports. This would make It pos
sible for the American manufacturers
to sell about "1 per cent of their exports.

the drawback was given, for the pur

It is therefore not a partisan ques
tion, ueenuse It has had recognition
from both political parties. It Is a
part of the policy to meet competition

purpose Is to enable manufacturers in

Planned to do
Well, by far the most particular
part of all your plans is to make
sure that the right paper goes on
The cost of the paper is worth con
sidering but style, newness, suit
ability is your main lookout.
For it is quite possible for you to
pay us 5c a roll and get new de
signs, while at other places you
may pay as high as 40c a roll, and
still have patterns away behind
The hint should be plain enough.
We've a whole NEW stock to
show you a bright, dependable
lot of paper. Wall paper that you
can buy from in safety without
knowing anything at all about
Wall Paper quality.
We are really anxious to have you
see it, for we feel that we can
make it profitable for you to do
your buying here.
