The Wages Question Again.
Yesterday we were discussing the
flunctuation of wages with the changes
of the tariff. What would be the re
sult, as proven by the experience of
other nations, of putting our wage
workers on a par with those of Europe
by admitting their products, as the
Mills bill contemplates, and as free
trade Democracy contemplates, to com
pete with our own? Let us look for a
moment at the condition of the laboring
cl-isses in free-trade countries. There
is not a better authority than the New
York Sun which, though Democratic
in politics, seeing the iniquity and in
justice latent in this Democratic meas
ure, speaks its mind as follows:
There is only one country in Euroyi
in which the wages of labor are within
a half of what they are in this country.
That is Great Britain.
Wages in Germany, Prance, Belgium
and Switzerland are not one-third ol
what they are here. Those of Italy art
not one quarter.
One duty of government is to protect
the labor of its citizens. Last yeai
cheap foreign labor was imported into
the United States in the shaps of man
ufactured goods to the value of $692.
319,7GS. This was a great wrong to
American labor. In that immense
amount of imports, permitted by oui
insufficient and defective tariff, the
labor of women employed in the Man
chester, Eugland, cottou mills, whose
wages do not average 660 a year, came
into competition with the higher priced
labor of our southern aud northern cot
ton spinners. In that mass of imports
was the labor of German factory work
men averaging less than Silo a year,
and that of women averaging less than
S50 a year.
Munich is a gallery and center of art.
German women with as mauy as six
children saw wood in the streets for
15c a day. May a merciful God sink
the United States 10,000 feet under the
sea before the hideous spectacle shall
become au incident of our civilization!
Nearly 700.000,000 worth of the star
vation labor of Europe in the form of
manufactured goods imported into this
country last year! That which came
from Belgium in bales and boxes rep
resented the wages of 32 cents a day
for women and 43 cents for men; and
the highest-priced labor in loose car
goes of Belgian steel and iron repre
sented wages less than SO cents a day.
Compared with these the wages of Car
negie's men at Braddock are the in
comes of priuces.
Italian labor in Italian merchandise
was imported into this country last
year, in competition with American
labor, at prices that should fill sensitive
souls with horror aqd alarm for the fu
ture of the human race. The pay in
the cotton factories of Naples is 20 cents
a day; of the Neapolitan marble and
granite cutters from forty to fifty cents
a day, according to skill; of coachmen,
thirty cents, and girls seven cents; of
soldiers in the army. $2 a month. Of
all the workmen in the glassworks of
Italy, only the skilled blowers receive
as high as SI a day, and laborers on
farms, hoeing or making .hay, from.fif
teen to eighteen cents a day, working
from sua to sun. God save America
from such wages! ,
In the Swiss silk goods whiclNcame
into our half-protected country last
year in those $7,000,000 of imports, was
the skilled labor of men at" forty-one
cents a day and of women at twenty
cents, both competing with the silk
weavers of Patterson, New York, Phil
adelphia and Cheney. Glasgow, in Scot
land, is the steamship factory of the
world, and its blast furnace owners and
iron rollers howl for free trade day and
night. Of the families in that manu
facturing Sodom, 41,000 out of 100,000
live in one room, and half of the men
and women in the city are chronically
out of work. That one, room for a
family of father, mother, daughters
and sons tells what wages are paid in
Scotland, and how they drag hnr "
down into bestialitv o omty
.i iur . . iu misery.
t -:., ore Mills bill to reduce the
ntt is the first step to that one room
for an American family. Fight it
without delay, and fight it to its death;
and then make your tariff so protective
as to shut out cheap foreign labor in
the form of manufactured eoods.
That speech of Dan Voorhees will
bear reproducing in every paper in the
Bight you are, brother, for it shows
him up as an arrant fraud. The "tall
sycamore" evidently forgot his record
and spoke only to please the crowd be
fore him, entirely oblivious of the fact
that he was condemning himself by the
words he used.
In at least one of its many remarka
ble assertions, the speech is distin
guished for its audacious inconsistency.
Mr. Voorhees charged the Republican
party with entering into a conspiracy
to discriminate against and degrade the
immortal greenback. The Indiana
statesman asserted that this Republi
can conspiracy, as he was pleased to
term it, was inaugurated in 1S62, when
the greenback was made non-receivable
for duties on imports and for interest
on the bonded debt of the United
"I was amazed when I read that pas
sage from Mr. Voorhees' speech," said
Mr. McPhersou, secretary of the Re
publican Congressional Committee,
a -'As a member of the House in 1S62
Voorhees voted against the Stevens
amendment to the bill to authorize the
issue of greenbacks. That amendment
mide the gieenback a legal tender for
all purposes, including custom duties,
interest on the public debt and for all
debts owing by the United States to
anybody within the United States.
The amendment was adopted and then
Voorhees voted against the bill, along
with Pendleton, Vallandigham, Sunset
Cox, Ilolman and most of the other
Democrats. The Senate a few days
later passed a legal tender bill which
was in many respects the same as the
House bill. When the subject again
came before the House, and the Senate
amendments were considered, Mr.
Voorhees voted for the proviso requir
ing interest on the public debt to be
paid iu coin. That amendment was
carried by a vote of SS to oo, and forty
two of the affirmative votes were cast
by Democrats, while fifty-three of the
negative votes were cast by Republi
cans. In other words, the Republican
conspiracy to degrade the immortal
greenback succeeded by the votes of
torty-two Democrats, including Voor
hees, and forty-six Republicans, while
fifty-three Republicans and two Demo
crats voted to prevent it. Mr. Voor
hees evidently has forgotten the part he
took in the conspiracy, or else he has
changed his mind. He was one of the
criminals in 1S62 whose crime he so
vigorously denounces in 1SSS."
Yes, let us "reproduce" that speech
and alongside of it "reproduce"5 the in
consistent Senator's recoiu.

Xew Haven liegister, a Democratic

The City Patrolled Quarantine
iACKSO.vviLLE, Fla., Aug. 14. The fevar
panic continues. People are leaving the
city by every known means o exodus.
The Qutlying cities and towns, both near
and distant, are continually establishing
quarantine against this place. Macon,
Ga., which had opened its gates to all
refugees, closed them yesterday. The only
kuown exit is now through Atlanta, and if
Way Cross maintains a strict quarantine'
and the Government establishes a camp
for refugees at Boulogne, twelve miles this
side of there, the present inhabitants of
Jacksonville will be practically shut in on
all sides. The Citizens' Auxiliary Asso
ciation to the County Board of Health was
in session all the morning, various matters
being under discussion. The police force
has been increased and six mounted po
lice now patrol the streets night and day.
No case of yellow fever has yet occurred
among the negro population. Business is
completely paralyzed and negroes out of
work gather iu knots in the streets, and it
is feared will soon begin to plunder and
pillage the hundreds of unoccupied houses
in the city. Humors of martial law are
afloat. The situation does not yet demand
it, but may at almost any hour, if the
thousands of blacks remain out of work.
By reason of the exodus from the city, the
banks have been largely drawn upon for
funds. No deposits are coming in, as the
merchants find it impossible to col
lect accounts. The Florida Savings Bank
and Real Estate Exchange, J. C. Greely,
president, this morning posted a notice on
the door to the effect that the pressure
upon it had forced it to take advantage of
the sixty days' notice with reference to the
withdrawal of deposits. No funds will be
paid out at present. This has not caused
a pauic as yet, but will when it becomes
moro generally known. Lime, sulphui
and tar have been ordered in largo quanti
ties, and to-night several hundred fires
will be kindled all over the city, two or
three in every block, in order to kill the
fever germs if possible.
Nearly every hotel, boarding house and
restaurant in the city has been closed.
Hundreds of stores are closed and the pro
prietors havo lied. All others close .at
five p. m. and open at nine a. m., in or

THE RIVER AND HARBOR BILL.
The President Unfavorably Impressed "With
Some of Its IVaturos.
"Washington, Aug. 14. The refusal of
the President to sign the River and Harbor
bill for the reason that there were items
in it which he could not approve, has
again called attention to the suggestion
that the President should be permitted to
veto portions of an appropriation
bill. The movement which has become
so general in the States has thus far met
with little encouragement in Congress. No
one seems disposed to take the first steps
necessary to bring about this change.
Some of the President's reasons for failing
to affix his signature to the River and Har
bor bill were made public to-day, through
engineer officers with whom he talked re
garding the points of the bill. It has been
generally assumed that the schemes to
purchase the Green and Barren river im
provements, and the Monongahela river
dams were the chief obstacles in the way
of the approval of the bill, but it is said
that after the President was given to
understand the nature of these pur
chases he fvdly approved them.
The point that he found the most fault
with, was the failure of Congress to leave
any discretion with the Mississippi and
Missouri River Commissioners. He found
that out of $1,100,000 appropriated for the
Missouri river, less than $75,000 had been
left to be expended within the discretion of
the Commissioners, and about the same
proportion of the Mississippi river money
had been allowed the Commission. The
President was wroth, and after asking
what these Commissions were for, charged
that the distribution of this money was
part of a log rolling scheme, and that if it.
