A Welshman pose of investiga investiga

American tin plate
industry with a
view of transferring his plant te this
country, says The American Economist.
Mr. Rogers probably knows as much
about tin plate as auy ether living man,
and as he is a Welshman who cannot be
supposed te cherish any particular re
gard for the American industry, we are
pleased te quote his opinion of that
industry and its prospects for the benefit
and instruction of the American tin
plate liar. In an interview published
in The Seuth Wales Daily Xews, July
13th, Chairman Rogers, in answer te a
reporters questions, expressed himself
Are there any works in course of crec
Hen in America new?
Yes, there are several. I only visited n
few The manufacture of tin plate is.
however, eery rapidly taking root xn the
United Stale, and some very magnificent
plants have been erected. One of the
works which I visited was Wm finest ithieh
I have ever seen. An enormous steel and
tin plate concern is being built in Chicago.
When a Welshman admits that an
American tin-plnnt plant i3 " the finest
he has ever seen," it is about time for
the canting demagogues who are paid
for falsifying the facts about a great
American industry te cease their rant
ing and enter upon some mere fertile
fields for the exercise of their peculiar
talents. Hewever, this is by no means
the most interesting part of the inter-
' view. It is when Mr. Rogers comes te
the prospects of the coming election
that the Free'-trade "reformer" should
take especial netice:
SuppesingMr. Cleveland were elected,
what de you think would be the effect of
his policy ?
'I think the result would be that the
duties would be generally lowered, and
that wages would consequently fall.
The working classes would, of course,
net be willing te remain without work,
(jnd manufacturers would have te reduce
wages te enable them te compete success
fully with ether countries. Wages in
' America are at present double what they
are kere, but if America adopted Frce-
trade they would probably be reduced
etiebalf, and becorae equal te the wages
jtftld bore. The question of Free-trade
or Protection in America is, therefore, of
far B&r,e Importance te the working class
of America than it is te any class in this
a country. In America the working class
mtm high wages at present, and the cost
of HvlBg out there .is se llttle mere than
it la here, that they have much greater

It tM atrb te
disguising lils belief, he is net afraid te

Protection in America is essentially a
werklngmnn's question, just as this
foreign tin plnte manufacturer says it
is, and if American laborers wish te
put Free-trade at the helm and lower
wages into their own pockets there is
net the shadow of doubt that they can
The Rochester Herald has lately
been devoting much pains and time te
" exposing" eme of the fallacies of Mr.
speeches in the
Hew Foreigners Northwest. Te his
Pay the Duty declaration that Pro
tection forces the
foreign importer te
pay the duty imposed for the privilege
of marketing his goods here, it tnkes
positive exception. It says:
Let us expose McKinley's attempt te

Illustration. In the fiscal year 1S91 the
importations of manufactures of wool te
this country were valued at $43,233,409.
That was the aggregate amount the
foreign exporters received for them the
lowest price for the goods in the foreign
market. But the customs duties en these
woolen goods amounted te ?34,201.452,

goods in order te place them in "the
When the foreign importer places
in our markets which he has te sell
here for the same price as similar
domestic goods, he must nlways deduct
from the American belling price nil
expenses of getting his goods into this
country. If the foreign and domestic
prices are the same, he must reduce his
original selling price te the extent of
the duties collected en this side plus the
expense of transportation. If the
difference between the foreign and
domestic prices is greater than he
duties, he is then enabled te advance
the original price of his goods. If the
difference between the domestic and
foreign prices be less than the duties
paid, he must reduce his eriginnl selling
prices accordingly. All of this is ns
clear ns amber, and can be com
prehended een by the inmates of nn

take the illustration given by The
Suppose there were no duties en the

A McKinley industry which seems
te have hitherto escaped notice is the
manufacture of jams, it has stnrted

under the stimulus
Ajiekican Jam. of the new Tariff.
We have always
imported the fine
grades of jam from England, but it new
seems likely that we shall be obliged te
de sg only a little longer. A jam
factory situated in Camden, N. J., has
already placed American jams en the
market, nnd they nre pronounced hy
connoisseurs superior te the imported
nrticle. They sell at a uniform whole
sale price for all kinds. The regular
prices of foreign jam of the same grade
from $1 90 a dozen (pound packages)
for marmalade te $2 50 a dozen for
strawberry nnd raspberry, Demestic
jams of any of these kind can be had nt
$1 40. Leng may the McKinley jam
industry live and prosper.
THE New Yerk World is doing
valiant service in the cause of Protec
tion. Witness the following paragraph
intended te illustrate the workings of
the Tariff: " The illustration concerns
steel rails, which are new $4 a ten
higher than they were in 18S5, although
the cost of production and the Tariff
tax are less and the demand is slight."
The truth or falsity of this statement
we will net new discuss. All "we
desire te ask Is: " Dees The World
wish us te Infer that lowering duties
causes higher prices?"
