HOW FARMERS SUFFER.
The Tariff Levies a Tax on Them
the Benefit of Others.
GGovernor Boies of Iowa at a .Re
form ClubjDinner : If the farmers and
laborers of this country are required
to contribute from their earnings to
build up lines of industry in which
they are not engaged, it is absolutely
certainthat those who give must be
come poorer thereby, while those
who receive will grow rich from the
avails of labor they do not perform,
and it requires no stretch of the im
agination to foresee that under such a
system time alone i3 needed to divide
these classes In this the proudest re
public on the globe, as the human
family is already divided in the most
aristocratic monarchies of the old
world. It is infinitely better that
this nation should remain poor with
its property, such as it has, distribut
ed among all its classes, than become
the richest on the globe with its
wealth concentrated in the hands of
Nojdream of a theorist could con
caive :of a condition more periect
than one which would divide and
could maintain, with equal effort on
the part of individuals, an equal dis-
tribution of a nation's wealth among
all its citizens. This is impracticable,
but what can be said in favor oi a
system that strikes the very root of
this equality: that aids by artificial
means in';preventing the nearest ap
proach to such equality that the hu
man family is capable of attaining.
Certainly nothing if men are just. If
this is the result of a protective tariff
the argument is ended.
Let us consider further its effect
unon the farmers of this country. It
is a self-evident proposition that a
tariff levied upon products which a
nation produces largely in excess of
its own wants, which it is constantly
sending: abroad because its own mar
kets will not take or use them, can
have no possible effect upon the price
of such commodities, and hence it
follows that so long as we are pro
ducing annually hundreds of millions
in value of agricultural products in
excess of our own wants, no tariff
levied upon like products can benefit
the farmer. Legislators may spread
such laws upon the statute books, but
they should be as powerless to de
ceive as they are to benefit the parties
in whose favor they are professedly
made. It is equally apparent, as has
been demonstrated so many times,
that a tariff upon manufactured
goods increases their cost and the
cost of like goods produced at home,
because of such goods we produce
less than we use, and hence must
supply our wants in part by importa
tions from other countries.
But this increased cost is not the
farmer's chief ground of complaint
against a protective tariff. He must
have a market for his surplus produc
tions in foreign lands. Unlike the
manufacturer, he produces largely
more than the nouie market can
take. The most important question
therefore for him to consider is how
to extend the markets for his pro
ducts. Nothing is more plain than
tho fact that n we sen to toreign na
tions we must buy of them, No na
Hon could long pay in gold lor any
considerable amount of imports and
escape bankruptcy. It follows ir
resistibly that a tariff that keeps the
products of any foreign nation out of
our markets must to a considerable
extent keep ours out of its market,
and inasmuch as the farmers of t lie
country supply three-fourths of all
our exports, they are the chief suf
ferers from any policy mat accom
plishes such a result.

Wheat Production in India.
Cor. Country Gentleman.
The following communication ap
peared in the "Englishman," which
is one of the leading papers of Cal
cutta, and the editor of which vouch
es for the correspondent as being, a
recognized authority on the subject
matter of the communication. I
send it to you, that our people may
get an Indian view of the wheat sit
uation in that country and to show
that even in India there are thought
ful persons who look forward to the
cessation of Indian exports at an
early day and for very much the
same reason which I have assigned
for the belief that American exports
would soon cease: that is, the in
crease or domestic consumption.
This writer refers to Bengal as being
the only province in India where the
rural population is not underfed, and
it may be well to state that Bengal
is the only province where the Brit
ish government does not own the
land and take, as a land tax, "all the
traffic will bear." The production of
wheat in India, as well as Indian ex
portation, is a matter in which we
shall be interested as long as we ex
port wheat ; hence such information
and conclusions a3 this writef sets
forth cannot fail to interest your
readers. C. Wood Davis.
Editor Englishman The artl
cle in your esteemed paper of yester
day on the formationvof wheat rings
in the Punjaub, as well as the article
about wheat in today's issue, are un
doubtedly written under the popular
and prevailing opinion with regard
to tne immensity or the wheat pro
duction of India. As it is the fash
ion to taiK aoout iaiiacies, 1 am
afraid that the greatest fallacy about
Indian wheat prevails among a great
number of people in India and Eng
Now is it possible, with the exten
sive railway communications and
with the conditions of trade in this
country, that rings could be formed
to Keep tne wheat at a high rate in a
special place or town, if the stocks of
wheat were not reduced to the low
est minimum possible all over the
Any one who is at all acquainted
with the trade knows what a keen
competition exists between the trad'
ers, and Ire is aware of the fact, that
the paltry profit of 85 rupees on
every 100 tons, any Marwari, or any
other trader, will bring any amount
of wheat, or other produce, from
one end of the country to the other.
The plain fact is that the stocks of
cereals, especially wheat, have been,
and are of late, running in this coun
try to a dangerous minimum, aud
that people have not realized the fact
that all the wheat which India pro
duces is required for the consumption
of the country ; and this fact will not
be realized until a serious disaster oc
This season, with the prospects of
good crops, as undoubtedly they
seem to be, large contracts have been
entered into tor wneat, and the Ma r
waris and other traders have sold
very largely ; the consequence, if
they carry out all their contracts,
will probably bo a loss to them of
four or fivejlakhs of rupees, and the
buyers will not probably be better off
with their freight engagements.
Without overhauling the statistics,
I believe that a few plain facts ought
to be sufficient to demonstrate how
erroneous the idea about the wheat
supply of India i3. The total pro
duction of wheat in India is roughly
estimated at 8,000,000 tons. The to
tal exports are, on an average, 875,
000 tons, or about 11 per cent, of the
whole ; consequently the 89 per cent.
of the production is consumed in the
country and no stocks remain at the
end of the season.
it is, l believe, seit-evident that a
slight expansion in consumption, a
partial failure in the crops of other
food-grains like kessari, bajra, etc., is
sufficient to absorb the percentage
exported. Besides, we have a steady
increase or consumption, in conse
quence of the natural growth of the
population of India.
It is I believe, a fact that the great
mass of the rural population, with
the exception of that of the Province
of Bengal, i3 underfed, and it is nat
ural that the first thing people should
do when their condition improves is
to eat more if previously stinted.
It is not very likely generally
known that, while the export of
wheat from Calcutta of late years did
not exceed 100,000 tons, the local con
sumption of Calcutta is over 100,000
yearly, and the flour mills of the
town do not supply uny extensive
area of country ; nnd I believe the
reason why the town of Calcutta nnd
its suburbs consume such a large
quantity of wheat is because they
contain a comparatively well-to-do
population of all classes.
-w- . . - ... .
1 have hem tor some years past the
opinion, and do so more strongly
now, that, comparatively sneak inir.
in a few years India will cease to ex
port wheat, and soon after will be
come an importing country.

A Prayer of Geo Lawson, (1749-1820.)
Almighty God, who canst give the
light that in darkness shall make us
glad, the life that in gloom shall
make us joy, and the peace that
amidst discord shall bring us quiet
ness, let us live this day in that lif
anu that peace, so that we may gain
the victory over those things that
press us down, and over tho flesh
that t)o often encumbers us, and over
death that seemeth for a moment to
win the victory. Thus, we, being
filled with inward peace, and light
and life, may walk all the days of our
mortal life, doing our . work as the
business of our Father, glorifying it
because it is thy will, knowing that
when thou givest,thou givest in love,
So, with these inward thoughts, jnay
we keep that divine light in the soul
which shall enable us to set our spir
its in order and walk in obedience
and trust, not failing to look forward
with great hope. Bestow upon us
the greatest and last blessing,that we,
being in thy presence, may be like
unto thee forever more. These
things we do ask in the name of Je
sus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Money Has Two Great Purposes.
Hon. Sherman Hoar. '
One as a token of exchange and the
other as a basis for credit, and the
latter is fully as important as tho
former purpose. To the great mer
cantile, commercial and manufactur
ing interests of the country, relying
on credit as they do, and to the men
employed or investing therein, de
pending tor their remuneration on
the success of such enterprises, it is of
the most absolute importance that
the money on which credit is based
should be the least subject to fluctua
tion. Free silver would bring about
a likelehood of the loss of gold from
our currency and the substitutiou of
silver as a basis of credit : and the
history of silver shows that it passes
through larger fluctuations than does
gold. In the present condition of af
fairs, when credit,sensitive as a mag
net. is already much distuibed, it
would certainly be even more than
hazardous to undertake a system of
coinage that would be likely to dis
turb credit still further, It is com
mon and cheap to call any one who
is anxious to preserve the best coin as
the basis of credit, a "Minion of Wall
Street"; but when it is considered
how many of oUr people are engaged
in the businesses and industries which
depend on the system of credit, an
what terrible havoc any injury to
credit could play among the hundred
of thousands of wage earners and
small investors in those businesses
and industries, what epithet is strong I

Give it a Home.
We alluded yesterday to the peri
patetic .feature of our Supreme Court
in connection with -the King murder
case. The verdict has been appealed
from. Because the court don't sit in
West Tennessee for ten months, the
appeal cannot be heard until the end
of that long period, and the condemn
ed man must meantime lie in jail.
This is only one case of many in
which the constitutional recognition
of sections in the State works the
grossest injustice on tax-payers,on lit
igants in civil cases, and on defend
ants to criminal charges. Nor is
this all the harm this arrangement
does. It occupies a considerable part
of the court's time in moving about.
It detracts from the dignity of the
tribunal. It prevents the collection
and proper care of a library for the
use of the judges. It hinders that re
pose and stability which are essential
to the study of intricate legal prob
lems. It is a strain upon the ner
vous system of those elderly judges
and must adversly effect their health
and spirits. The court should have a
permanent home and abiding place,
and no appellant should be hindered
from obtaining a speedy hearing of
his appeal, on account of his resi-
duce. Certainly, if there were no
other feature of it calling for reform
this one alone is sufficient to justify
the calling of a convention to amend
our State Charter; but there are sev
eral others that also need to be im
proved and adapt to the changed
condition of the state and its people,
