RAILROAD TARIFF INOREASE
ate Bil Works Injustice to Man;
and its Best Market.
By James S. McCarthy.
Washington, 1). C., June 3.-Thi
United States Consul located ,a
Havre, Fra,ace, reports to the gov
ernment that it is quite -probabb
France, following in the example o:
Germany, Switzerland, and Spain
will, in the near future revise hei
customs tariffs. le states that tho
question has been carefully studiet
by the customs committee of thi
French Ohambor of Depities and th<
committee, after having consultei
the different chambers of commerce
and professional sybndicates of the
country, announces that it favors a
general overhauling of the existing
rates and will soon draft a bill em
bodying its views on the subject. The
committee has already unanimously
voted to recommend the maintenance
of the maximum and nininlm sys
tem, but wtih a provision allowing
the concluding of special commercial
treaties under certain stated condi
tions. The commiitee will also rec
ommend that the maximum rates be
made, on the whole, fifty per cent
higher than t:he present minimum
rates. All the articles entering into
the various schedules will be minute
ly described, in accordance with the
Germni method, so as to designate
as clearly as may be possible the
specialties of the different coun
tries without formally mentioning
The bill will be submitted to the
French Parliament in the course of
the present or next session and, be
ing given the strength of the protec
tive spirit in France today, it would
not be surprising if it were, in. sub
stance, eventually enaoted into law.
That a material increase in the rates
of the general tariff is at hand seems
most likely. It is certain, at all
even.ts, that the proposed legislation,
if adopted, would result in serious
in.inry to i American export trade so
long as oirw prodiets remain handi
capped Iby hvinxi' to pay dities fifty
per cent hi-her than those applicable
to our eoinotiiors. The present ar
rangement. under which, except for
a few privile.e( articles, we pay
much lihigier (ltities than nearly every
other nation has proved to be, in
many eases, absolutely prohibitive.
In its recent summary of the in
ternal commerce of the United Sta-tes
the Bureau of Statisties of the De
partment. of Conimeree and Labor,
annoinces hat, the onew all-rail
freight rates submited to the Inter
sta.te Commerce Commission by the
railroads since 4he passage of the
law regulating rail freiglit. and pas
senger rates are higher than those in
effect. prior to ile enaltmn1.t of the
statue. Thus, it will he seen that.
the sipper is injured rather than
benefitlted lby poiliticail rate miaking.
S'nde r thle old reime l thle rail roads
made rates withI an eye si'ngular t.o
moving t.he t rame, hut. since congress
andl t.he legislatures of several states
have passed laws rad ically3 red1ucing
the revenues of the carriers, they
have becen c'omlpelled, in self-de-fence,
in filing their new schedules of rates
with the conmmision, to materially
increase their charges in order -to
avoid deficit s.
In as nmch as t.he commission has
p)ermi tted the carriers to put the
rates into effeet without pirotest, it is
presulmedl tahatI body conisiders them
just an-d reasonable. The fact re
mains, however, that shippers are
not faring as well in t:he matter of
railroad rates as 'they did wvheni the
railroads were given free rein in the
transport ation business.
Ot'elial in formation d,iscloses thew
important fact .that thme United
Kingdom is the world's best market
for' t obacco. Its consum.pt.ion lies in
creased thirty per' cent in the past
fifteen- years, or at the rote of two
per cent a year. Tt is used in all
knowni forms. Laborers consume
large quantities of chewing tobacco
during -t.he hours when smoking is
not permitted on account of the
character of their work or othcr
causes. The pipe is seen everywhere,
in the home, on the street, and the
sport ing field, and in all lounging
places, trains, bioats, etc. Thie eigam
is most noticeable among the profes
sional, money, and aristocratic class.
es, but tIme eigaret.te seems to 1)e the
special favori-te of all classes and is
consumed in immense quantities; it
may be seen in the hands of mere
lads as young as eight years, and
dealers report that .ihuare is a grow
ing cigarette trade among women,
Snuff taikers are still not uneommon,
The growing use of tobacco, it is
claimed is due to a number of cans
es. Many seem to think that certair
olimatic conditionsq, such as the ex
cessiv e moisture in the air and th<
attendant depressing conditions, pre
pare the people to feel the .need o
its istimulating or soothing influene
F It is pointed out that the steady es
odus from the land to the industria
centers and the wonderful develop
mont of arena sports have u.ndoubt
edly contributed to the increase ii
3 thd past fifteen years. The socia
bhabits of the people are another im
- portant element. Oddly enough, i
seems there is practically no crusad
against its use by church or state, be
yond the effort made by the anti
eigarette leagues to induce lads t<

iil they reach the age of twenty-on
STATE TEACHERS MEETING.
Programme has Many Attractiv
Features and Large Attendance
Columbia, June L.-For the first
time in a number of years the Statc

separate and independent organiza
tion, and for this reason those who
are interested in its welfare are look
ing forward to the next meeting with
the confident belief t,hat it will be a
great success. The place of meeting
is a very fortunate one, and the at
tractions of Chick Springs, together
with the strong programme announe

representative body of teachers. Much
careful thought has been given to
the topics and speakers on the pro
gramme, asnd.progressive teachers who

the educational affairs of the state
and nation can scarcely afford to be
absent from this meeting.

sociation, or T. W. Dick, Abbeville,
S. C., secretary.

-.1ranlted by railroads on the certifi
eate plan, provided as many as one
iiundred persons present cer(icato-re

will Ie made when the fare paid is
less than seventy-five cents.
Tn order to get the benefit of these
rates persons in attendance upon the
meeting must secure certificate-re
