OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
,r- A Blow at Newspapers-Radical Rail
road Legislation-American Cot
ton Goods in Manuria.
1)f Special Cor.. Herald and Ne;s.
e- Washington, Feb. 11.-Whether ill
y, tentionally or not the congressional
c- commission appointed to suggest
to changes in the legislation affecting
f second-class mail has agreed upon a
ly bill the effect of which wotld be to
impose limitations upon the adver
to tising business of every newspaper
es and magazine publisher in the United
is, States. It proposes'to exclude from
it, the mails as second-class matter eveiy
publication in which advertisements
i- take l) more than one-half of the
printed spaed. The avowed purpose
0- is to exclude a class of publications
which are primarily advertising
0, sheets, but the effect would be to in
VS jure alimlost every periodical publi
, eation in the country. The editor of
1 a coulitr weekly, for instance, wld
have to Imleasure upl) his space every
- week and rf(use to accept al adver
lisemetel of' lily kinld ater i he had
erwoul.Oh to fill hall' of his paper. This
ih. 161-lt not he a brdelnsomle rest ric
toil part ol' the year, bul' there is
t, hardly a coitOry paper that would
not stilTer severely during the holiday
- season, when e1ough advertisements
are offered to Compensate for the
s- lean weeks throughout the year.
This bill is one of a class v,ery po
i pillar at this time with many Imem
bers of congress and of state legisla
~ tures who believe that the govern
ment should interfere with all kinds
V of business. For instance, just at
this time when the most pressing need
of alno:A every locality in the coun
itry is additional transportation .facil
- ities, bills are pending in almost every
I state legislature now in session the ef
i feet of which would be to discourago
T railroad extension and improvement
i in that state. In a letter dealing with
ithe situation in the south I and the
ieed of additional transportation fa
eilities in that section the editor of
the Manti'acturers' Record says:
'-iUlder these colditions it behooves
(1 tle whole colult t ) recognize that
d this is not a time for atagonisim
C, against railroads. The time has pass
i ed for destructive criticism, and now
- constructive work should be the or
(let of the day, or else, as sure. as is
- the cert.ainty that tonorrow's sui
n will rise, we shall see a breaking
& down of our railroad interests and a
le general collapse of business in the not
very distant future. Unwise agitation
oagaitnst r'ailIroads wh ether from ignor
to anee or from perverted demagogues
seeking the favor of the public, may
ruin the railroads, but, live the temple
of old, as they go down, business in
terests, without this pillar of support
will crumble inl the wreek.'
3- Special Agent Clark, of the Bureau
of Manufacturerts, has just made a
s- very comtplete reporCit onl the cotton
goodls ttrade in Mautncuia. Most of
C, the cotton goodls shtippeCd from the
United St ates to Manchuria, go first
to Shanghai and from that _portL to
MI distribut ig points in Manchuria.
These shipments in 1905 amounttedl to
*3,250,375 pieces, an increase of 2,
342,705 pie(cs over' ten year's ago.
g- Large as this intcrease is Mr. Clark
SS believes it. will continue anid that the
market will be broadened by a grad
nail use of filnet' grades of good1s than
are at priesenit used. Mr. Clat'k has
er' forwarded to the bureau samples of
the goods in chief demand in Man
es. churia. As soon as the sampllles ar
rive they wvill be distributed among
er cotton m anu fact urers and exporters
.interes.ted in that tr'ade.

Senator Smythe, of Charleston, was
in charge of tleir forces, seconded by -
Senator BuIst and Senator John T. F(
iSloan, of Richland.
Mr. Buist began to speak soon af

calls had been liad and finally, long
after day's dawn and when the morn
mng newspapers were oin the streets
the opposition surrendered and the
bill was voted upon. F(
The eight opposing votes were:
Senators ). E. Finley, of York, now

Buist and Smythe, of Charleston;
Walter Hazard, of Georgetown; W.

Moore, of Hampton, voted agailst the
bill but was not present at this par

out the dispensary under the Brice N4
law, and Senator Finley's successor,
Senator Briee, was the author of that
measure, the first body blow that the
state system has received.
Senator Blease, who may be called

forces in the senate now, was a mem
ber of the house when the original
