The alliance members last week were
coni!,d in caucus until a lato hour
on Monday night and that caucus re
quired the pass word and grip before
being admitted to the- room. How

Chicago's Trade and the Taritt.
Thero are tome interesting iU'ins
it Dun's review of the week's trails.
For example: "The dry gwuds trade
is on tho whole very satisfactory for
the season. The iin.reaing demand
for wool, though still confined to
actual needs for consumption, proves
that the current price low a a the
are, do not arrest production."
It seems cruel to say "I told you
so" to the free traders, but. really
everybody has it in mind that during
the last campaign' tho Chicago Her
ald, straight Democratic; the Chicago I
rsews, critical ot evnrytiiing tnai is
and knowing more than anybody
else ever did know, ever will know,
or ever can know, nnd the Chicago
' Tribune, organ of the London Cob-
tlen Club, one and all, told their
readers that a first "effect of tho new
tariff bill would be 'to increase tne
prico of woolen j(Wds. Tho Inter
Ocean, alouo of the Chisrairo ttress.
insnted that it would do nothing of
the kind, and it published the opinions
of all the chief dealers in clothing in
support of its own 'opinion. Time
has Vindicated tho i'ntor Ocean-. Hlhe
cuuntry is entering upon the fiftl
month of tho operation of tho new
tariu law, and Duns report is tiiat
"prices, low as they are, do not arrest
production." Which is to say, in
creased tariff has so stimulated coin-
petition as to make priees of woolens
so low a to leave a'cautious observer
to anticipate curt:iriineh't of produc
tion until price stiffen, 'but 'despite
' of these wonderfully "low .prldes pro
duction and competition continue
I The.-e reilectit-ns are 'ce'noral to
the whole country, but as to the trade
of our own city Dun report is thus:
