We would inform this Western Tariff
" reform" organ that under the general
previsions of the McKinley bill, tea and
coffee are absolutely free, us will be
seen by consulting paragraphs 543 and
732; that under the reciprocity section
of the new law, a retaliatory duty is
levied en the most iusigniflcant part of
the whole amount imported; that ac
cording te the United States Commercial
Agency and Dun's Reports, the price of
coffee in the American market is unpre
cedentedly low; and that It would be a
geed idea for all self-appointed Tariff
"reform" organs, and this Western one
in particular, te acquire some knowl
edge of at least a few of the previsions
of the Tariff law befere starting in te

It is expected there will be a further
advance in the price of anthracite coal
July 1st. The Democratic calamity howl
ers are respectfully reminded once mere
that authracite coal is en the free list.
In 1SS2 Great Britain made 8,193,287
tens of pig iron, Germany made 3.3S0,
603 tens, and the United States 4,023,323
Ions. In 1891 Great Britain made 7,228,
490 tens, Germany 4,152,029 tens, and
the United States S.279,733 tens. This
is a decrease for the Free-trade country
of 1 1 per cent, and an increase of 33 per
cent, anil 80 per cent, respectively for
the two Protectionist countries. That is
the kind of "victories" Cebdenistn is
winning these days.
It is instructive te compare this
showing with the wages received by
iron puddlers in this country at different
times in our history. In 1859, under
the Free-trade revenue only Tariff th,en
in force, iron puddlers received $3 CO
per ten as wages. Te-day under Pretec
tien, wages for the same work are 5 50
per ten. In view of these facts can
any reasonable man deuy that Free-trade
and lower wages are synonymous terms?

A NEW BILL.
Gladstone's New Scheme for
Heme Rule In Ireland.
It Will Be Presented te the English
Parliament at the Fall Session.
The Same as That or 1880, With the Ki-
ceptleu of a Few Modifications The
Clause IteuievlnR Irish Peer Frem
the lloute of Lords Disappears.
Londen, June 25. Mr. Glndsone's
home rule scheme, which the conserva
tives aru accustomed te assert is still In
embryo, has been actually communi
cated In detail te Lord Rosebery, Mr.
Jehn Merley, Sir Vernen Harcourt and
ether liberals. Seme of its mere criti
cal points bve been discussed with the
Irish lcad with the assurance that If
the general election places Mr. Glad
stone in power, the bill will be pres
ented at the autumn session of parlia
ment. The representative of the Associated
Press has lcurned that the leading feat
ures of the measure of 18b0 will be re
tained, with the following exceptiens:
Clause 4, restricting the powers of the
Irish legislature, Is enlarged by further
defining the limitation of the powers
te Interfere with the endowment of re
ligion, or te Impose disability; or con
fer privilege en account of religious
belief. Further guarantees relating te
denominational education are provided.
Next, the constitution of the legislative
body will be modified by raising the
number of members of the first order
in the upper house, who, as in the first
bill, shall held office for ten years.
The much disputed clause 24,remevlng
the Irish peers from the house of lords,
and the Irish members from the house
of commons, disappears In the new bill,
the representation of Ireland In the
imperial parliament remaining the
same as at present, te meet the threat
ened active refusal or passive resistance
of the Ulstcrites te the Irish parliament
by the nonpayment of taxes.
Sub-section , of clause 19, of the bill
of 1SS0, is te be extended se as te insure
the employment of the police and mili
tary forces te enforce the payment of
all taxes leviable by the Irish parlia
ment. Anether alteration relates te disputes
arising between the Irish legislature
and the imperial government.
Lord Rosebery recently made refer
ence te some tribunal dealing with
these dlirerences. This was wrongly.
Interpreted by the Irish members te'
mean the creation of n body HUe the
supreme court of the United States.
Lord Rosebery really referred te the re
tention of clause 05 of the old bill, pro
viding that the judlclnl committee of
the privy council should decide consti
tutional questions relating te the
powers of the Irish legislature.
Mr. Gladstone Is understood as pro
posing te appoint a fixed number of
Irish judges te sit with the judicial
committee when Irish questions are dis
Apart from these modifications, the
measure of ISsSO remains intact

HOW WE'VE GROWN.
thU Population or the Cnlted States by
Celer, Sex and General Nativity.
Wasuinoten, June 35. The census
office Friday Issued a bulletin en the
p6pulatien of the United States .by
color, sex and general nativity. It
shows that the population as a whole
has increased during the decade from
18S0 te 1600, 12,400,407, or 24.80 per
cent, tlie total population re
turned in 1800 being 03,022,250 as
ajfsltist a total population in 1880 of 50,
156,185 The males have increased from
25,518,820 in 1880 te 32,007,880 in 1890, the
numerical increase being 0,549,000, or
25.00 per cent The whole number of
females returned In 16S0 was 24,830,003,'
while In 1890 there were 80.554.B70.
The females have increased, therefore,
5,017,407, or 24.02 per cent, since 18S0.
Considering the population classified
as native and foreign born, we findt
that 53,ri"2,703 are native born, and
0,240,517 are foreign born. In 1880 there
were 43,475,840 native born and 0,070,0431
foreign born. The increase in native
born during the decade was 0,000,303,
or 2i 70 per cent, as against an Increase
for the decade ending with 1880 of 10,
4S4.09S, or 31.78 per cent The Increase
In foreign born during the decade from
1S60 te 1890 was 2,509,004, or 30.47 per
cent the Incregee for the decade ending
with 18S0 being 1,112,714, or 10.09 per
cent According te the census of 1890
there were in the United States54,9S3,890
white persons and 7,033.300 colored pet
sons, meaning by "colored" per&ens of
African descent, Chinese, Japanese
and civilized Indians. There has
been an increase 4ti whites from 1SS0 te
1890 of 11,580,920, or 20.08 per cent and
an increase in the colored for the same
decade of 885,547, or 13.11 per cent.
Fer the decade from 1670 te 18S0 the
white increased 29.22 per cent and the
colored apparently 35,90 per cent As
has already been explained in previous
bulletins, however, the increase from
1870 te 1830 was te a certain extent
fictitious, particularly as regards the
colored population of the south.

ter. Lincoln, Neb., June 25. While there
has net been much said about this part
of the country during the recent Heeds,
principally because the disasters of oth eth
er places were of such magnitude that
they overshadow all ethers, this coun
try had a Heed, which, for the time be
ing, brought desolation te many farm
ers and caused the less of two lives un
der very peculiar circumstances. Lead
ing into the city from the west is a read
which comes from the most thickly set
tled part of the state, and this read is
well graded afid improved with bridges
and culverts. fiT58B b4
During the season of storms, Jacob
Miller, with wife and daughter aged
sixteen, were driving home from town
when they saw a heavy storm approach
ing. Miller drove his horses te a bridge
and hitched the team te a tree, while
he and his family crawled Inte a large
culvert which leads from a small creek
across the read te a larger stream.
Safely ensconced in this, they in
tended te wait until the storm was
ever and then proceed te their home.
Either a water-spout or an Im
mense fall of rain se lloedod the stream
that the culvert was filled te the top,
and Miller and his wife were both
drowned, while the dnughter was saved
by the greatest miracle. She was
washed out of the mouth of the culvert
by the force of the water, and, as she
swept into the larger stream, she was
caught by a tree and held above the
Heed until rescued half an hour later.
The bodies of Miller and his wife were
both found two miles down the stream.
Itreak the Glass In Window and Injure
Creps at Wilmington, O.
Wilmington, O., June 25. The most
destructive hailstorm in the history of
this community, took place about 5
o'clock Friday evening. A small cloud
of unpretentious appearance played
havoc with property and crops. The
hall was the largest ever known te fall
here. Many hailstones were picked i
up that measured from four
te six Inches In circumfer
ence. Windows in dwelling-houses
suffered severely, In some instances the
sash being knocked out The Metho
dist church was heavily damaged, los
ing ever seventy large panes of glass.
The Presbyterian, Baptist and Chris
tian churches also suffered. Nearly
all tlie windows en the south
side of the Wilmington cellar pad
factory are crushed out nnd the goods
were considerably damaged. Every
glass In the large groen-hou&e of Lee
Weltz & Sens is reported broken.
Farmers report the corn and wheat in
the path of the storm damaged beyond
measure. Soen after the storm the
streets were crowded with people dis
cussing the damage and eager for news
from the country. Undoubtedly the
damage In the country is much heavier
than at present known, as the storm
was se late that little Information
could be obtained.
