An important deposit of that rare
metal known as vanadium has been

The principal source of supply until re

absolute discretion in the matter.
Hitherto old licenses have been re

that the applicant had been guilty of
some misdemeanor. Men who have had
licenses for years have lieen refused re

without theirs. The magistrates say
that they will decide how many public
houses a town needs, and will also have
something to say as to their location.

The constitution of the United States
of Brazil, adopted February 24 last,
provides an educational limitation to
citizenship. "Persons ignorant of the
alphabet are not allowed to vote at
federal or state elections. The con
stitution also excludes beggars, and
members of communities of whatsoever
denomination who are subject to
vows of obedience, etc., which implies
the surrender of individual liberty. In
this prohibition are included soldiers
on pay. Evidently the Brazilians are
anxious that the ballot In their country
shall only be cast by freemen, who
shall be at least moderately intelligent.

Since the enactment of the new tar. ft law
there ha. been a large reduction ill the reve

In the bill itself, which recited at its h -nd:
"An act to reduce the revenue, etc. It will
lie observed there was during tlie year a re
duction in the customs revenue of HI.WV
42 -fy, notwithstanding there was a large
Increase in the imports of merchandise. This
large reduction in the revenue oecurref I dur
ing the last three quarters off thu year In
cluded in the statement. The increase Chat
appears in the first quarter ocrurred in Oc
tober. 1S".h, the month In which the new
tariff went Into effect. The new law did not
go into effect until the 6th. and the Imports
of merchandise and the withdrawal
of merchandise from warehouses Immedi
ately prior to tint date was very large. The
reduction of the revenue from customs dur
ing the three quarters ending Sep. ember ifi,
lsiu, as com pu red with the same period of
the prior year, was 4snil.siH.2l, but in con
sidering the statement of the whole twelve
months, this amount Is cut down by the in
creased revenue collected during Ihe first
quarter, which occurred in October, as men
tioned above. It will be remembered, how
ever, that the principal article of our I in
ports of merchandise fmm which the duty
was removed ia sugar, and b- the prov s
ions of tlie new tariff law tlie removal of
this duty did not take effect outli April I,
During the two quarters since that date It
w ill be seen that Ihe reduction In customs
revenue, as compared with the same period
of the prior year, amounted to $41,7Myi.i2.
From thl It will reasonably appear that the
reductions for an entire Tear will be fully as
large, if not In caress nf the amount con'
tern plated in the enactment of the new
tariff law. It further appears from the
above table that the total receipts from cus
toms during the twelve months prior to the
passage of the new tariff were FiJT.W.tStS.
and ff-iT the first twelve months after th
enactment of the new tar.ff law the receipts
were f HfVW.116 V.W. The customs revenue
collected during the first period of twclva
months per capita ot population was
il.M, and duricg the second period $3 07,
or a reduction per capita of 73 ecu I a.
The reduction In customs revenue has
been greatlv accelerated nee April 1 last
when the duty was removed from sugar It
appears from the taide tbtt the customs
revenue per capita of population collected
ilnnnt the s x months end a; Heptemoer SB,
l4tl, was only !1 3X If the customs revenue
collected during the following s:x months
end'ng March 31, IKU, should be in the same
proportion, the customs reveane per capita
collected during the year ending with the
latter date would ls only :2. GO, or reduc
tion of $1.J per capita of population la cus
toms revenue collected for that year. Tula
would be tbe lowest revenue per capita cot
lected from customs for the twenty- five
years sli ce isr4, and 11.24 per capita less
than the annual average race or duty collect
ed during that period on imported mer
chandise, which was iS.m per capita.
