V lion. Joseph Mcdlll, the veteran editor
of the Chicago Tribune, recinllf traveled
through Englswi. He studied the tariff
"question, found out wbkt the Englishmen
" bad to lay, came borne and delivered
, himself of tbe following: "
J When In England Isst summer I waa
astonished In traveling over that Island
from Manchester to Birmingham, and
Leeds to London, not to meet anv Eog
hub man who waa in favor of a material
reduction of the present American tariff.
Formerly they were all anxious to have
our tarm reuueea. it was aurca mat
tbey tent gold over bare to bribe con-
uren w reauce our larui. vWBscaargea
3 with getting tome of that British gold
8 myself for saving that tbe tariff ought to
be reduced.) But I found in every town
I visited, and every man with whom I
talked, in newspaper offices, in the cars,
In the hotels, In the shops, at social par
tie, the Englishmen made one universal
reply to mv inquiry, to this fleet: "We
care nothing about your tariff; we don't
want it cut down: we regard it as more
protection to us than to you. Tour high
tariff and dear manufactures keep you
out of all tbe otber ports of tbe world,
and we have monopoly of them; but if
you wade a tariff like ours your gom!i
would be cheap, you would invade our
markets and compete with us in every
foreign port for the sale of your fabrics.
We could not put any more of our goods
In your country tban we do now, and you
would crowd our goods out of a hundred
porta where we now have the absolute
control." That la what tbey said to me.
"We have been over in your country in
tbe last few years." said some of them,
"looking at your natural resources. We
find you have cheaper raw material than
we can possibly get In this country; vou
grow It yourself, you do not have to Im
port It; you have more Iron ore, a mo
nopoly of cotton, abundance of wool, and
leather, and lumber; you have cheaper
"iT5 VlkMunor Of It than we; you
have a cheaper f.wni. ana a supernuity or
it; you are a country or overwhelming
natural resources: hut you have artitl
dully walled yourself out of tbe markets
of the world, and we hope you will con
lioue to do It" I said to some of them.
"Suppose we should get our eyes open.
aod reform the tariff, what would you do
about itT" Tbey replied: "Then we
would bave only one thing to do trans
fer our capital and manufactories, and our
artisans to your country, and do business
nntler tbe stars and stripes.

Tba very first women weat of the Alleghs,

I'lglea), when, about I74H, several families
moved Just over the creat of tbe low Alle
ghany divide, where now stands Blacksburg,
Va., and made a settlement called Draper's
Having no sister, Mary (Mrs. Ingles) had
played altogether with her brother and
grown np like a boy. Mhe could run as well
as be. Hhe could stand and Jump straight up
nearly aa high as ber head; could leap into
tbe saddle unaldxd; could stand on the floor
and Jump over a chair lck, and so on. This
agility and strength stool her in good stead
when, In IT.V1, the, with other women and
children, ware captured by the hhawneea,
and the Indians liegan a baxty retreat to their
homes beyond the Ohio, (hi tbe night of tbe
third day out Mrs. Ingle gave birth to an
Infant daughter, but this fai t caused no de
lay, which would have meant the death of
both mother and child, for the next morning
she waa able to ride on. At the Shawnee
town the prisoners were divided up and scat
tered, but lira Inglee and her baby were kept
there, where she mnde herself so useful that
after a few week she was taken along with a
company of Hhawuees to help make salt at
the big Bone l.ick, south of the Ohio. Thus
she waa the Hrat bite woman to enter Ken
tucky, long antedating the arrival there of
Mrs. liamvl iioone, who Is usually given that
a ncHibora cscape.
From here the resolved to escape, and aban
doning ber babe to the Indians started with
an old Dutch woman who bad more recently
been brought to the Lick. With nothing to
eat but berriea, roots aud mumels, with no
weapons of defense, nor any protection from
tbe weather tieyond their ragged clothes,
barefooted and guided only by Mrs. Ingles'
bops of recognizing again the mouth of a
large river which she bod dtwended all tbe
way from her home, the two women forced
their way eastward along the forested bank
of the Ohio. At luHt bie became certainty,
for the picture of the river mouth printed on
ber memory did not fail her. It was the

and vl-ne together, great vlitTs, bordering
what Ik now the canyon of the New, down

obliged to scale their heights, only to find a

attempted to kill her companion for food.

Had this euuply tieeu a story of bumaa

it could be matched by many auotber wo
man's story of that period; but It amounted
to a moat valuable exploration, since, until
then, nobody knew that their waters gather
ed Into a great river, or emptied Into tbe
Ohio, nor what wna the Ohio's lower course,
nor that saline spring, exiated lu the western
valleys. When Mrs. Ingles stopied nmr
where Charleston, the capital of Wat Vir

tors In ber own kettles, she was laying the
foundation of tbe long race of Kanawha salt
makers and of one of tbennMt extensive local
Industries in tbe writ. This woman bred to

became one of the main avenuea of emigra

who In 17MJ waa near the fort at U'beel

young siter, a girl who had Jut returned
from school In I'hiludelpliia and waa totally
nnussd to these wild scenes. The attack waa

bss ry to replenish their ammunition
from Col. Zaae's bouse, which was about
fifty paces O-Jajit.
Il was therefore ;-"posed that one of theii

It is due myself to say, however, that at

Reparation for Actual Injury.
"The govermeut practically said to these

well and safe there is no liability on

then, as far as possible, we will make you a
reparation.' Now tbat reparation can be
practically made but in one way, and tbat n
by giving a money reparation, which from
the magnitude of the aggregate number of
Ooo tracts must be limited. If it were said
tbat only tbe indigent should receive this
reparation, then a slur would tie cast upon
every pensioner of the government and as a
matter of justice, the reward should be suf
ficient for bis support But this is not the

with a mass of abuse for tbat witb which I
had nothing to do. I did not think it possi

under such circumstances as attended my
