A Peoria Herald reporter ran across a
Chinaman the other day and interviewed
him about opium smoking. The China
man was an intelligent fellow, spoke pig
eon English very cleverly, though with a
alight Peoria accent, but he was very
emaciated and verr nervous. His eyes
were dull and fishy, and his long, thin,
skinny Sneers resembled claws, and
shook In a most spasmodic way. These
svmntoma caught the observant eye of
the reporter, who said at once:
Do vou smoke opium?"

It pleases ns greatly to note that our
morning contemporary tells the truth
once in a while, politically as well as
otherwise. Whether this is intentional
or not, we are unable to say. Friday
morning, in one of its repentant spells,
it confesses the iniquity of a hign tariff,
and gives the lie direct to its many for
mer declarations that protection does not
breed trusts, and that a reduction of the
tariff would impoverish the country
The Anous indulges in the hope that the
republican readers of the Union will
read the article carefully, and heed its
teachings. The Union says:
Two yeais ago fair refining sugar sold
in New York at f 4 44 per 100 pounds;
granulated, at $5.94, and crushed at
18.12. The cost of refining then ap
peared to justify1 a difference of ft 50
j)er 100 pounds between the raw sugar
and the granulated, and 91 68 between
the raw sugar and the crushed. . Now
the prices are f 7.06 for fair refining, f 9
for granulated, and $9.50 for crushed
The refiners now exact $1.94 per 100
Dounds for their services between the
raw and granulated Bugar, and $3.40 per
100 pounds between. the raw and the
But that does not tell the whole story.
The sugar trust made its boast at the
outset that it could control the market
for raw sugar in this country, and it ap
pears to have done so at times. At other
times, opponents of the trust are sup
posed to have advanced the price of raw
sugar, either in an effort to get a supply
or in an endeavor to embarrass the com
bination. In either case the real cause of
the unnatural state of the market is the
conspiracy to extort money from con
sumers, and the facta prove that np to
date the amount of money extorted has
been large. Roughly, the consumption
at fifty pounds per capita costs about
three cents per pound more than it for
merlv did. or $1.50 for every inhabitant.
97.50 for every family, and 997.500,000
for the entire population. .The wboie
revenue derived by the government from
tha duties of sugar of all kinds was only
$52,000,000 last year. If the government
could spare the revenue, and put an end
to the sugar combinations by repealing
all duties, it would simply present to the
people a sum nearly twice as large as it
now takes from them by the duties.
Whca congress assembles next winter.
if the sugar trust lives so long, one of the
most important duties before represent.
lives of . the people will be to consider
whether the existing duties on sugar.raw
and refined, tend in any way to aid or en
courage a combination to extort money
from American consumers, and in that
way the dunes can be so changed as
most effectually to defeat that combina
tion. For there is no room for doubt
about the hostility of this particular trust
to the public interest. It has in fact sup
pressed production at important works.
and it Ii ji in fact increased the cost of
sugar to consumers. Its organizers and
defenders have asserted that the existing
duiies do not help the trust in the slight
er t degree, and that their repeal would
not lessen its power. Congress will find
itself forced by public opinion to look
into the matter very closely, and to make
it entirely clear that members do not
mean to leave any reasonable or proper
thing undone that may help to protect
the public against extortion. ,

If your carpet looks dingy and you wish to restore its
colors to their original freshness, use Ivory Soap and tepid
water; apply with a scrubbing brush ; use very little water
so as not to saturate the carpet. After scrubbing lightly,
rub the carpet with a cloth; wet frequently with clear
water so as to take up the dirt and soap ; wring out the
cloth thoroughly before wetting it again.
A WORD CXF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but tike all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
