W Msimf,irtures-Vhat it true in

in regard to manufactures stimulated by
tbe uriff, tbe manufacturing power of the
country hat been increased beyond the
demand for manufactured foods. Hence

their productions. If there it anyway by
which this can be secured other than by
a reform of the tariff, which ttanda in the
way of International trade, it bat not yet
been made public
3. Labur-If the tariff by il.mulating
manufacturing did for a time advance
aget, it Is no longer working In tblt di
rection. It haa stimulated Immigration
at well production, and the
time has come when labor la no better
rewarded In the United Ctatet than it la
Id Ureal Lrilain. If Instead of saying
that wages are higher in thla country
than In Oreat Lritain. the matter would
be better understood. Wages are lower
in Ureal Britain than in tbe United
Stalet. vi. : because labor it lett effwo
live In tbe former than In tbe latter. By
tbia I mean that manual laborer do not
accomplish at much in the lame time Id
Oreat Britain they do Id tbe United
atatee. 1 do not apeak of other Euro

tame amount of tnk in i.t
than bit own. I spe.k advisedly when I
eay that nearly twice at many servants
are required to do the necessary work In
bouse in London a are required in
New York. The tame it trne or all kinds
of manual labor. Estimating by what
it accomplishes, there It very little differ
ence In tbe price of labor in the United
Statet and Oreat Britain. Wherever I
went in tbe latter tountry I nutlrtd tbe
tame sluggish movements of the
laborers on tbe great landed es
tates, in shops, in factories, upon
tbe dorks. Tbe late Mr. Gritwold. or
New York was strongly impressed by
what be witnessed in tbia retprct. When
be was In England and Scotland he spent
good deal of time in their shipyards,
and in Ibe last conversation whirh I had
with him In London, he said "that after
close observation of the manner In which
work was done In those yards, be bail
come lo tbe conclusion that if the foreien
materials which are needed in shipbuild
ing were freed from duties, ships could
be built as cheaply in ibe United States
M In England or S-olland. English and
Scotch workmen are paid less per dav
than we should have to psy. but they
don't do as much as we should rrqnire.
Either the climate or beer makes them
sluggish. Besides." said be. "we should
do scores of things by machinery that
tbey do by hands."
Tbe protective tariff can no longer be
defended on the ground that wsget are
lower in Great Britain than in Ibe United
States, which Is not only the most pro
durtlve but the most inviting of coun
tries, with doors wide open to all com
er. If labor was not more etUrient
here than In other countries, ibe foreign
laborers who every year are coming by
thousands would equalize its rott.
To me it seems verv rlear that all tbe
great industrial interests In the United
States are greatly in need of a freer trade
with other nations, and that this can onlv
be brought about by a radical change in
our financial policy.
I congratulate the members of the club
upon the progress whk-h tariff reform is
making, as indicated by the recent elic
tiont, but it must he borne in mind that
tbe protective interests sre strong in
wealth, if not in numbers; that having
controlled the economic policy of tbe
government for nearly a quarter of a cen
tury, and been enriched bv it. they will
not yield that control without a severe
contest. If. however, such associations
at yours do tbeir full duty, if the great
bodv or fair-minded people, especially
the farmers, are made t understand In
what extent the many are taxed for the
benefit of tbe few, bow prejudicial the
tariff is to all our great Interests, es
pecially farming Interests, which under
lies all other interests, the result of tbe
contest will not he long doubtful.
With constantly increasing faiih in the
soundness f the doctrine of which I have
been 'or many year an bumble advocate,
that, as a rule, taxes should be imposed
'or revenue only, I remain, very truly

Wakhixutoji Cttt, Dec. 7. The commit
tee appointed by the bouse Thursday to in
vestigate the embecxlenient in tbe sergeant-at-arms'
office met yesterday and took the
testimony of Mr. Leedom and others, but
developed nothing not already known as to
the actual crime. Provision was made for
an examination of the pa per in the ser-geant-At-arms'
office. The most interesting
conclusion come to and the one whk-h will
make some congressman feel melancholy tc
the amount of about f 70.000, was that then
is no law constituting Mr. Leedom or any
other sergeant at-aPms the disbursing officer
of the house, and that it was merely an nn
official custom to draw money from the
treasury on certificates endorsed by the
clerk 01 tbe house.
Their Salaries In the Son p.
As to where the kw must fa 11, the com
mittee agree.! that t he goverment is in no
way responsible for the loss of the money
and tbe loss must consequently fall on the
individual members wbo had accounts with
the sergcant-at-arms. So far as Mr. Leedom
ia concerned the committee was forced to
pome to the conclusion that he cannot be
held responsible, because of the absence ol
any law constituting him a disbursing offi
r. His bond of foO.iiu) was merely to in
sure the government against l.vss in the event
of an improiier transaction of his office busi
ness, and therefore bis bondsmen cannot be
held responsible for losses of money over
-hich Sir. leedom had no control. This pe
culiar state of affairs bad never been brought
to tbe attention of the house, lev, if anv,
member were aware that this condition of
thing, existed, and it is certain that the
honse will immediately insure iteelf protec
tion by passing a law authorizing some oftl
-r to act as disbursing oflirer. -
They Dlsenss the Situation.
The discussion among the member of tbe
house of the ruling of the committee that
members were to be the I. scra bv the d-fal
cation was very animated yesterday. The
opinion was general that the house would
vote a upecinl appropriation to reimburse
the members for their losses. Some rmposi
tion to this proposition was manifested by
several or the members, and it is certain
the appropriation will not go through the
nouse on n beels.
DtFENDING THE REFORM.
Commissioner Roosevelt Again Opens His
l ire oa the Critic.
Wasbixotom Citt, Dec 7. Lucius B.
swift of Indianapolis, a prominent civil
service reform advocate, wrote to Commis
sioner Roosevelt, of the civil service commis
sion, recently, inclosing an editorial from
The Indianapolis Journal, in which it
stated that Mr. Roosevelt had complained of
Postmaster General tVanamaker because
that gentleman had criticised the character
of the questions submitted to applicants for
places in the railway mail service; that
there i abundant proof that the criticisms
are well founded; that Senator Gorman re
cently gave an instance of an applicant for
a letter carrier's j:tion iu Baltimore being
axked the most direct route from Baltimore
to China; and tinullv ni'rgestuig that Roose
velt Mould do well to l.sik into the com
plaints rather thau iioriug them, and be-
the rating critics.
Roosevelt Toes the Mark.
In reply Mr. Roosevelt says that the state
ments, though doubtless made in good faith.
snow complete mlsaptirelieusion of the fact
''Complaint" are not "ignored," but gladly
welcomed when well founded; when not
well founded be feek at perfe.1 Uberty to
'berate the critiin." Ho say he did not
Vomplain"at all about the alloged criticisms
of 1'ostmaster Gtaioral tVanainaker, but at
once declared bis lielief that tbe interview
was false, a lielu-f Which was justified w hen
be met Air. aiiamaker, wbo totally repudi
bwm me interview.
A Sweeping Challenge.
Mr. rtoitsrvelt then proceeds as follows
"So far from there being 'abundant proof
tliat tbe criticisms are well founded,' there
is not a scintilla of proof that can be ad
vanced in support of them. I challenge anv
man to produce an examination pajier sub
mitt, si to sny applicant for entry to the
railway mail service which will hear out in
whole or in part the wU founder criticisms
contained in the apoorrphal interview to
w hich me Journal rerers. Tbey are abso
lutely false and tbey are very foolish to
boot. Our examinations for the
railway mail service are of an eminent
ly common-sense and practical character. A
third of the marks are given on tests of
spelling and ienmanship, of skill in copying
and of ability to do simiile sums and to writs
an intelligent letter. He is required
to show a good knowledge of United States
geography without which knowledge he
wouia ue wholly unfit to be a postal clerk.
This counts for a fifth in the total marking
Than he is required to show a good knowl
edge of tbe railway routes and svstem in the
division where be is going to serve! Thit counts
for a fourth In the total marking. Finally
be is tested on the speed and accuracy with
whic-b he can read off addresses on letters.
ana wis counts lor a ruth 01 the total mark
Gorman's Alleged Criticism.
Now as to tbe alleged remark of Senator
Gorman. I say alleged, for I cannot believe
so astute a man and able a politician as Sen
ator uurman could nave been so egregiously
dnped and hoodwinked, a. must have been
tbe case if be really spoke as reported. Jo
let tw -carrier is ever asked, in any of our ex
aminations, w hat is the direct route from
Baltimore to China. I defy any one to spec
ify any such examination where this, or any
similar question has been asked during my
term 01 service as a commissioner; and my
colleague, Mr. Lyman, authorizes me to
state, in tbe broadest and most emohatlc
terms, that none of our examinations of this
character ever have contained any such
Gentlemen, Be Specific.
"It is noticeable that when a man quotes
sucn an alleged question be never, by any
chance, mentions tbe date and place at which
the examination where it was asked wa held.
and on liemg praseedasto these details be
invariably admits that he really does not
know what he is talking about. Any man.
in or out of congress, who tulles about our
examinations as 'impractical,' or a contain
ing 'impractical and irrelevant questions,'
should give specifically the facts on which
be bases his belief . In reality be ne vc r doee
give these facts, for the very good reason
that be cant.''
Mr. Roxvvelt close, with the admission
that the system is not perfect, but afenires
bis eorrespundeut that the commission is try
ing to make It as perfect as possible, and to
that end desires honest criticism, but protests
against the preposterous assertions made
regarding the examinations, which although
really comic in their falsehood, by continual
iteration cause many upright men to think
they have some foundation.

DgxrcR, Dec 7. The Individualist, a lib
era! and reform paper, came out here Thurs
day with a leader in support of "The Kew
Abolition," which embraces a number of
very radical and revolutionary demands,
namely: "The immediate and unconditional
repeal and total abolition of so-called title
to land other than the natural title of occu
pancy and use; all statutes and enactments
and so-called laws for tbe collection of debts
all statutes and enactments in any way re
biting to the circulating medium of the coun
try ; all statute, that in anyway interfers
with free trade between individuals of the
sum or of different countries; all charters,
special privileges and franchises to corpora
tions; all forms of compulsory taxation; all
other statutes, precedents and customs that
in any way conflict with the law of equal
freedom," It further demands collective or
state ownership and control of all highways,
waterways, railways, telegraphs, telephones,
canals, ditches, reservoirs, etc., and muni
cipal ownership and control of all water
works, illuminating and public heating
plants, street railways, cable lines, etc."
It F.inbraces Thelu All.
The Individualist boldly claims that the
''new abolition" embodiea in their essence
the real aim and desires of the Fanners'
Alliance, the Asn-ieultural Wheel, the
Knights of Lalsir. the Trade union and
Federation of Trade, tbe Union Labor
party, the United Labor and Greenback
parties, and tbe reasonable demands of all
rational Nationalists, Socialists, Commun

this movement will be backed on the start
with at least l.rtiO.ix) votes and that it will
shake the country from centre to circumfer

St. Lorta, Di. 7. Two of the labor or

of the Knights of Labor, with Powderly at
its head, and that of the Farmers' ami La
borers' union, met, and after a short dis
cussion in which some slight modifications of
tbe demands of tbe farmers were agreed to,
it was decided to federate and act together in
all matters. A committee on platform was
agreed upon, and the subject to be discussed
are land, money, and transportation reform.
A legislative committee to go to Washington
from each organization, there Ut act in union
in the securing of legislation desired by both
organizations, is to be ainioiiited front each.
Tbis federation is looked upou as the first
step towant absolute union.
Platform of the Alliance.
The Farmers' Alliance, which did not go
