A Train Lumlt-.l ultli Deputy .MiimlmU
One of the most remarkable excur
sion trains of the year left Fort Smith,
Ark., last week, says the Oklahoma
City l'resb-llazetto. It was u social
train, but tho object was not pleasure,
and tho conductor's duty was not to
take up fares. The guardians of the
train were a sharp-sighted United
States marshal anil eight trusty depu
ties with Winchesters and pistols dis
played In Buggestlvo profusion. Tho
passengers were thlrty-ono of the
most hardened criminals that ever
terrorized tho Southwest nnd made a
rendezvous of tho ludiau Territory.
They had been sentenced by .Judge
Parker for terms ranging from two to
twenty-four years in tho King's county
penitentiary at llrooklyn, and to that
point tho train was speeding. Among
tho prisoners were kid Wilson, Creek
moro and Chnney, of tho Starr gaily.
Tho object in taking them so far
away was evidently to get the men
out of old associations nnd where
thoir prestige for breaking jail and
other desperado feats had not reached.
It was u remarkable picture, this
penal train of convicts, and one which
in a few years will bo Impossible to
witness, even around tho Indian Ter
ritory. -4 LILLIE'S NEW HOUSE.

A publisher of a trade paper sued a

The order had been given m to the
publisher by their own solicitor, who
had received It from a third party,
who, In turn, had obtained it from tho
advertiser. The said third party hud
guaranteed a circulation which could

was that he was not bound by tho

Wa .mis.itov Nov. '.". Chairman
Wilson of tlif lioiw way nml mentis
committee has Uvifd tho following
statoinent In regard to tho tarllt bill:
Tin Demoeratlc members of the com
mittee on wavs nnd means have felt,
us none ithMscoull feet, the moment
ous responsibility resting upon them,
and the magnitude, diftlenltv and deli
cacy of the dtttv n'hitf ,m! them of
framing the tariff bill for it nation of
70, m h i.ooo of people.
Its main features ore two: First, the
adoption, wliererer It saemed prac
ticable, of ad valorem instead of
spec i fie duti", secondly, the freeing
from taxes of those great materials of
industry that Ho at the bnso of pro
duction. Sp. itlu rates of duty are objection
ab'f for these reasoni: They fre
quently conceal a rate of taxation too
enormous to le submitted to if ex
posed in ad valorem terms us the duty
ofeiffht cents 100 pounds on salt in
bnlk, which amount to over eighty
per cent on n common necessity of
life. They always bear heavily on
the common article used by the
tntist.es and slightly on tho ex
pensive article consumed by the
rich, as a tax of S30 on
all houses would be nothing on the
great mansion and very high on the
humble home. And contrary to com
mon bolief spocille duties lead to
greater frauds in ndminlslratlon, for
counting and weighing at the custom
house are done by tho cheapest nnd
most easily corrupted labor while ad
valorem rates are assessed by tho best
paid and most responsible appraisers.
The ad vnlorein syste n has worked
well in practice, is essentially the fair
system, because it is a tax upon tho
actual value of an article, and was de
clared by Mr. Clay himself to be in
the ry and according to every sound
principle, of justice entitled to the
preference, nnd vindicated by long
The boldest innovation of tlio bill is
its largo free list of the r.iw niMorlals.
Taxes upon a pro metion are doublo
wrongs. They gatheraud accumulate
on tlio consumers of the finished
products. Thev hurt labor by
narrowing tho market for what
it produce. Coal unci iron are
the foundations of modern Industry.
Material progress is measured by the
amount of their consumption No
othur country can supply thotn as
abundantly or cheaply as we can. No
possible competition can interfere
with our own producers, u few miles
in tlio Interior of tho country. Re
moteness from the noureos of supply
is in itself enough disadvantage to
liny suction of the country, without
further burdens in tariff taxes.
Untaxed ores, coal, lumber, wool
other things must immensely stimu
late production in certain parts of our
country. Tho thin wedge of Ameri
can manufactures litis entered every
country. With releases from taxes
on their materials there Is no limit to
tho grow th of our foreign trade. This
will inure than compensate the homo
producers of raw material, who, tariff
or no tiiritf, control all tho In
terior of the country from tiny appre
honded un of markets any hero
along the seaboard. Its Incalculable'
ndvuntuire to lubir is annaruliL In
I every gnit line of manufactures wo
can produce in rrom six to nine
months t-nough for our own innrkeL
Wo can get rid of our surplus only by
foreign trade As long as wo have
taxes on the materials of industry we
pfinnt build up that trade, hence the
Other alternative, trusts to keep down,
production to the homo market.
As to details of tho bill, I will
briefly recapitulate tlio salient changes
of tlio scyii ul schedules. In tho ehuiu
Ibtrv schedule, we have transfered to
tho free list qultoa numberof articles,
used in manufacturing. In the pottery
schedule reductions are made. Flaln
white waie is decreased from tlio high
schedule in which it mysteriously
tiFQwded itself. Decorated ware is re
duced from sixty to fortyttlye.
nlnte glass reductions aro made, tho
largest size from fifty cents to thirty
cents per square foot; on silvered from
sixty to thirty-five cents.
In the iron and steel schedule wo
begin with free ore. Fig iron wo ro
dtico from M.7J er ton which Is SO to
00 por cent to a uniform dutv of 2"4
per oent a rato somewhat higher In
proportion than the rost of tho sched
ule because of cheap freight on for. ign
pig.it being a fuvorit- freight on
western voyages. Steel rails were re
duced from S13. 14 per ton now 7." per
gopt to S5 per cent.
