THE TtOOK IBIjANP ARGUS. THURSDAY. JANUAKY 16. 1890
THE WAILINGS OF TINNED
AND ANVIL MEN.
Btatlatlea from Mr. William a
aeyer How It Would Take a Popula
tion Nearly a Largo a Mow Tors to Do
MMk a 11,000 WoUbmra.
Tb scene is the committee room of the
we j and mean committee. The time
la Dee. 27. Enter Mr. "William C Cro
nenmeTer, of rittaburc. lis states his
views to the committee on wart and
moans. The desire of hi aoul ia to
the United State manufacture tholr
own tinned plate. The coat of manufact
uring tinned plato in this country, ac
cording to Mr. Cronnnmerer, would be
J3.50 per box of 112 pounds. In England
the aanie quantity could be delivered free
on board ship at Liverpool at $3.23. Mr,
Cronenuievcr modestly stated that he
wanted only enough protection to equal
ixe the dilTerence in the cost of labor be
tween the two countries. "If the tinned
plate industrr," concluded Mr. Cronen-
merer, "could be built up in this
country, it would support a number of
people nearly equal to the population of
New York city."
Accepting Mr. Cronen incyer'e figures
aa correct, the following facta are also
pertinent to the matter. Nearly half
the cost of tinned plate ia for aheet steel
which makes up 95 per cent, of finished
tinned plate. At no time has the cost of
a sheet of steel of the aame size and
weight btten less than four cents in this
country. This amount is for the raw
material alone. A finished sheet of
tinned plate of the same sue is put free
on board at Liverpool for three cents.
The duty is one cent a pound. As each
sheet woiglis a pound, the cost of a sheet
of tinned plate landed in this country is.
therefore, four cents. But Mr. Cronen'
meyer pro'ioscs to manufacture tinned
plate in this country with a protective
tariff of two cents a pound. Therefore,
for one cent a pound he proposes to pay
the cost of tin, sulphuric acid, palm oil
and wages; or, in other words, he pro
poses to do the whole process of tinning
steel plates at a less cost than the Welsh
do it at present.
Mr. Cronenmeyer's next point is even
more delicious. lie Bays that on in
dustry might bo built up giving em
ployment to a number of people nearly
equal to mo population of Jew York
city. From the report of Consul
Jones on the "Tin Plate Trade of South
Wales" it may easily be deduced that the
total number of hands engaged in the
tinned plate industry does not exceed
44,uou. According to the same report
the average annual product of these is
20,730,000 loxes. Of these we import
about one-fourth. Query : If 11,000
vv eishmen are able to supply the tinned
plato trade of the United States at an
average rate of wages of f 2.50 per week,
what will it cost to employ a population
nearly equal to New York city at double
mat rate of wages, and how many single
tinned plates will each employe make in
ui jiropooiug io uouoie me tarin on
tinned plate. Mr. Cronenmeyer will hare
to take account with several powerful in
duatries. Almost every utensil used in
dairy farming is made from tinned olate.
Including the tins used for condensed
milk, not less than $7,000,000 worth of
tinned plate is uaed annually in this
country for dairy purposes. This amount
is exclusive of a tariff of 80 per cent.
ftM 1 . .... .
me conuensea milk industry is not
only a large domestic industry, but i
few years ago the AnjrloSw'ias Con
densed Milk company established facto
ries in Illinois for the purpose of export
ing its products to Europe. An extra
cent a p Hind on tinned plate will drive
mem Dais: to .Switzerland strain.
At present a dairyman pays four cents
duty on each ten-quart can, eight cents
amy on each hfteen-quart can and
forty-tire cents on each fortr-ouart can
Under the proposed advance in the tariff
on tinned plates, these rates will be
uuuuitxi. .Miiciy cents uuty on every
urvy -quart call;
.ven ot greater iuiurtaiice is the
canned goods industry. Last year $10,
iiw.uw or tinned plate, exclusive of
iury, was consumed in this industry.
-- - wioii umvnj,mn cans are made
each year for holding prescrred fish,
meats, fruit and vegetables. An ordi
nary tomato can, even though thrown
away as empty and good for nothing,
represents a duty of one half cent as
paid to the national treasury for the
tinned plate of which It is made.
Another cent a pound will stop exports
in this industry.
The last industry which uses tinned
plate will not be much affected by an
adrance in the tariff. This is the Standard
Oil trust, which uses 3,500,000 pounds a
year of tinned plate for cans in which to
export oil. As the trust does its business
in large fashion, It can afford to take ad
vantage of the relwte which the govern
ment offers to exporters. Would it not
be a good plan for the government to
give a rebate of one-half cent for erery
empty tomato can presented to it? The
people of the United States should not
be any worse off in this respect than
foreigners who use our exported oil.
Mr. Clark Fisher, of Trenton, N. J., is
anxious alwut anrils. He described
them to the ways and means committee
as the oldest implement known to man
kind. Mr. Fisher said that forty years
ao there were twenty-five firms making
anvils. Now there were only three. A
duty of 2 3-10 cents per pound would
satisfy Mr. Fisher. It would enable the
manufacturers to turn out anrils cheaper
on account of the greater production. So
far Mr. Fisher.
The present tariff on anvils is 2 cents
per pound. In the last senate bill this
amount was left unchanged.
But what a beautiful trust the three
surviving anvil firms could make to re
duce prices with an increased duty of
8 8-10 cents per pound!
