INEVITABLE DECLINE IN WAGES
Production Curtailed Because of De
erensed Drmantl Foreign Cona-
trtes Adjust -Their Tariffs For the
Purpose of Excluding; American
In these days of retrenchment and
sagging exports, which are the natural
results of a high protective tariff, our
manufacturers have been looking for
markets abroad that were not Mailed
ia by a protective tariff against them.
The British colonies " in South Africa
seemed the best - field for exploiting,
and quite a nice business was spring
iug up ia that direction. The depart
ineiit of commerce, which now inclndes
the bureaus of statistics, was quick to
call attention to our increased trade
with South Africa, and the protection
1st organs painted , to it as an example
of foreign trade that had not been re
duced by our own protection wall
But. alas, those wicked Britishers, who
aw free traders at home, where they
cannot raise enough necessities to sup
bly themselves, when transplanted to
a new-country fc with infant industries
which they are trying to build up, have
determined on protection. .:
The department of commerce now in
forms us that all British territory In
South Africa has put in operation a
preferential tariff system in favor of
(jJreat Britain of 23 per cent. This
will soon wipe out the trade that our
exporters have built up with so much
expense and care. The business thus
lost with South Africa amounted to
$$,000,000, or about one-fourth of
what the same territory bought from
England, and the amount was increas
ed with surprising rapidity. In 180S
our trade there amounted to only one-
tenth of that of the British, which
shows the great increase since that
Our trade with Canada is being cut
off in exactly the same manner, and all
the European governments are also
raising their tariff walls higher and
higher against us. ThV principal suf
ferers by this system of protection
adopted by other countries will be the
American workingman and farmer.
Both will be cut oft' from markets for
the surplus they produce and above
what the people of the United States
can consume. The workingmen will
suffer by the decreased demand for
what they manufacture and the farm
crs by the decreased markets for their
surplus. As the demand decreases
prices for goods or produce fall and
wages decline, which is the immediate
result that may be looked for in this
country. In fact, the process has al
ready begun, and some of the greater
manufacturers, the trusts, have already
notified their workmen that the reduc
tion must be made. The steel trust lias
posted notices that on Jan. 1 a new
igreement with its employees will be
necessary. The Dover (N. J.) Index of
Oct. 2 says:
"Some of the employees of the mines
in this section have, received notice
that their wages will be cut l- cents
per day, and it is said that the same
rule is to prevail in nil of the mines in
the country in the course of a few
days. This is occasioned by the big
slump in steel and a consequent reduc
tion in the price of pig Iron."
That is from a local newspaper pub
lished in the iron mine region, and the
information, therefore, comes at first
A Chicago special correspondent of
the New York Evening Tost of Sept. 30
"The railroads and machine shops
are not using as many men as recently.
The night shifts have in a number of
instances been dispensed with owing
to a falling off in business."
Thus we have the natural result of
protection brought home to us by the
efforts of other countries to preserve
their markets for their own goods. As
the foreign demand for our surplus
productions decreases we must reduce
our output. To reduce means men out
of work and lower wages.
During the height of the trust boom
that has now run its course wages
have been increasing. They will now
begin to fall, and only the best skilled
workmen will find steady employment.
The protectionists would have us be
lieve that the Dingley bill. If untouch
ed, will continue prosperity', but the
facts show that it has bred trusts and
monopolies, raised the price of living
far bej-ond the -Increase of wages,
forced countries to -increase their tariff
wall against American products and
produced a panic in the stock market
which seems destined to extend to all
branches of trade.
That the tariff has been the mother
of trusts was a sworn statement of one
of the great trust magna'tes and that
the trusts have been selling their prod
ucts cheaper to foreigners than to our
own people has been proved, yet with
all this evidence of the harm that the
protective tariff has done and is doing
the Republican leaders have determin
ed not to reduce or reform it and are
nlready engaged in packing the com
mittees of the coming congress so that
the subject cannot even be considered.

ODD ROCK FORMATIONS.
Two Queer Freaks of Nature on the
.. Ialaad ot , .St.. lleLenaw
There are nt least two queer freaks
of natitje on the island of St. Helena
or rather four, for one of them is a
group of three figures known the
world over as the "Devil's Nose" and
"Lot and His Daughters." Any one
who is able to study the island as it Is
and not run wild over the Napoleonic
legends which have clustered about
that "seabound rock" since the days
when the "lattle Corporal" was housed
there in his living grave will find much
that will repay for investigation, time
. The queerest of the natural forma
tions are the oddities above alluded to.
The first of these imitative forms is a
rocky promontory which has been
known by names which signify Old
Nick's nasal projection since May 22.
1502, when Juan Castella and his men
sighted the island just in time to see
the devil disappear beneath the waves
in the best harbor, leaving his nose as
a reminder of what might happen
should the venturesome Spaniard seek
to take possession of his Satanic maj
esty's favorite haunts.
"Lot and His Daughters" are three
conical rocks which can only be con
jured into representing a man and two
women by a strong play of the imag
ination. According to the views of
some writers they are weather worn
statues of colossal size, probably the
work of some aborigines of the island.
Their gigantic size, however, would
seem to preclude this idea. When or
by whom they were dubbed "Lot and
iiis Daughters" no authority has ven
tured to say.
American Drams Excel.
"Ever know that Americans were the
greatest drum makers in the world?"
said a man in the business. '.'Fact.
Not only do they make the most drums,
but they make the finest drums too.
And there's a great deal more to the
manufacture of a drum than you would
think. Of course the cheap variety
doesn't amount to anything. They're
simply toys. There is just as much
difference in drums as in any other
musical instrument, though most peo
ple wouldn't think so. The drums re
quired in orchestra and band work
have a certain sharpness of tone, while
those used in corps aud military work
must have a duller tone, ami the drum
must not be so sensitive to the touch.
"And how many parts do you think
a well made drum consists of? Wrong.
It has 2-18 pieces, not including sticks,
hooks and belt. Everything must be of
first quality, too, for a drum must have
tone first of all, and it must be con
structed to withstand rough usage.
Great business is drum making and in
Mess System on Board a Man-of-war.
: The messing system on board a big
111:1 11-of-war is as comnlex aud complete
as the table service of a big hotel. The
modern war shin, with its five or six
.hundred persons on board, must be a
floating hotel and storehouse in itself.
Everv vessel of the navy is required by
the regulations governing the navy to
have a sreneral messing system. The
enlisted men on ship are divided into
squads of about twenty each, forming
a mess. Chief petty officers and offi
cers' servants are not included in this
division. Every mess has one or two
notty officers at its table, who fare like
the men. Every mess has its specia
mess man, who brings the food from the
srallev and serves it at the table. It Is
also the mess man's duty to see that the
mess table aud mess gear are clean and
in order. The messes on board ship are
under the direct supervision of the com
missary department, which is under
the control of the pay officers. Gun
Sarsanarllla "Floors Them."
"Of all the drinks asked for at this
counter," said the soda water clerk,
'those doctored up with sarsaparilla
are most frequently mispronounced.
Not one person in ten speaks that word
correctly. Most people call it either
sasaprilla' or 'sasaprella.
"Evervpeople who know how to spell
the word don't seem to be able to twist
their toucues around the combination
of syllables and make 'sarsaparilla' out
of them. They may be able to pro
nounce words much harder without a
stammer, but 'sarsaparilla' floors them
every time." New York Times.
A Creature From the Fire.
Aristotle believed that some crea
tures were capable of supporting life
even though confined to the devouring
element. He says: "In Cyprus, when

creature something larger than a great
fly is seen emerging from the stone
and leaping and walking about in the
fire. These creatures perish immedi
