Is $304 a year, $25.33 a month, $5 85 a
week, 07 cents a day. This astonishing
low average isdue to the large number
of children and women and foreigners
on the pay rolls.
In England the average wage of the
average employe is $2o3.2sV monthly
wage, $19.45; weekly wage, $-1.48;
daily wage, 74 cents. These figures
are from the official report of the Brit
ish board of trade, based on the cen
sus of 190C. The method of obtaining
the averages was by dividing the
amount paid in wages by the cotton
manufacturers of Great Britain by the
total number of employes, including
men, women, and boy and girl work-,
The average pet-cent of tariff rate
fixed by the Payne-Aldrkh law on cot
ton products is in excess of 40 per cent.
An attempt to justify this amount of
protection by the actual digerence in
the cost of production at home and
abroad would be ridiculous. Even if
English workmen received no wages
whatever," the new rates on cotton
goods would still be excessive.
Senator Owen of Oklahoma, during
the debate on the cotton schedule as
originally reported by the senate fi
nance committee, aptly explaiued the
hopelessness of justification of the new
rates in a few words, as follows:
"Granting that foreign goods have
no labor cost whatever, 20 per cent is
the maximum schedule to protect the
American workman in the cotton man
ufacturing industry, because 2ti per
cent represents the labor cost in Amer
ica of cotton manufactures.
"And if the labor cost abroad is one-1
half the labor cost in the United
States, the rate required to prevent
the foreign manufacturers from hav
ing the advantage in cheaper labor
would be 2G per cent, the American
labor cost, less 13 per cent, the Euro
pean labor cost, or a net rate of 13
per cent. "
"Yet," declared Senator Owen, "the
average per cent of tariff rate fixed by
the senate bill on cotton products is
47.14 per cent!"
The wages of the workmen in the
cotton manufacturing industry in Eng
land are increasing. For all the tex
tile industries combined the board of
trade report shows the percentage in
crease in average full "time earnings
to be 20 per cent for men and 22 per
cent for women. This increase is for
the 20-year period between 1SSG and
190(1, and under free trade.
In the United States, in the same
number of years, wages have increased
83 per cent in dollars, but have de
creased in proportion to the" increased
has been due to new machinery. The
United States commissioner of labor
reports that in the American textile
industries labor received 22 per cent
of the value of the gross piyiduct in
wages in 1S90, only 20.8 per cent in
1000. and but 19.5 per cent in 1905. '
The point to these contrasts is that
the New England manufacturers have

That the combination of American
cotton manufacturers is charging tin
reasonably high prices is evident on
the face of things. The British maun
iacturer. for instance, huys his raw
cotton in the Uni'd States, pays trans
portation on it to England, and then
pays freight on the manufactured
product back across the Atlantic, and.

of the long windows. He straightened
up again, and she saw that his clothes
