What Pre Ora Would Do far Aaaerloa.
Maj. L. S. Bont is president of the
great Pennsylvania Steel company, of
Steelton.Pa. lie has had the control
. and actual management of this company
for many years. lie understands thor
oughly the practical details of iron and
The Pennsylvania Steel company has
been so successful in its present location
that it has bad to choose between enlarg
ing its preeent plant at Steclton or build
ing new works. It has chosen the latter
course, and new works are in course of
building at Sparrow Point, Md., which
will be capable of using oyer 1,000,000
tons of Bessemer steel ore every year.
Maj. Bent is outspoken in his demand
for free ore. In an Interview with a
Philadelphia Record reporter, which is
given below, the major explains the ben
efits of free raw materials:
"Yes, sir," continued Maj. Bent, "I
mean exactly what I say. In our busi
ness, for which it is supposed a protective
tariff is most especially devised, the de
mand for free raw material must be met,
and we are quite prepared for all the re
duction in turiflf duties on manufactured
products thut an accession to this de
mand logically carries with it. For the
first time within the experience of those
now engaged in tlte iron and steel busi
ness this country is thrown entirely upon
fta own resources of production to supply
the demand for these articles. This new
and entirely unexpected condition of af
fairs has been suddenly thrust -upon the
country after a long depression of these
industries. One of the principal causes
which have brought about this condition
of affairs is the state of the business in
Europe; not only hare prices of iron and
teel there advanced to a point where ex
portation to this country is prohibited,
but they have come up abreast of, and in
some specialties have advanced beyond,
those ruling on this side of the water.
To show thut these prices are not specu
lative, here is a late market report from
Loudon: 'Steel rails No further change
in prices, but demand active and market
strong; heavy sections quoted at 6 10s.,
equal to $35, freo on toard, shipping
points. Bessemer pig Large business
done; prices still further advanced and
strong at 77s., equal to $10.35, free on
board. These are American prices.'
This Is an anomalous condition of affairs,
and though it presumably cannot long
continue, that it has actually occurred is
one of the striking events of the time.
The causes which have contributed to
these rapid advances if we may except
a limited factor of speculation in my
opinion are there to stay. They are,
first, the scarcity of material, sucli as
fuel and ore; these ore approaching ex
haustion in England, and there is a con
tinued increase in the cost of mining.
Secondly, manufacturers abroad have to
meet the labor problem; wages there at
no distant day are destined to equal
"What would 1 the result of equalis
ing the wages?"
"I behove that wo would have an ad
vantage, because of the greater product
ive power of A merican labor. There can
be no doubt that this exists. There is a
radical difference between the character
of the American and of the foreign work
ingman. A 10 per cent, advance in
wages in our industrial establishments
means, as a rule, 10 per cent, of saving,
which is made in itself productive by the
employe, and an increased effort on his
part to get in more hours and produce
more tons, thereby increasing tiie net
saving to himself, as well as to his em
ployer." "Why do you think the present high
prices are likely to continue?"
"If you ask a manufacturer for his
product for futuro delivery, while he
will name a price quite within the limit,
he will likely add that he has none to
sell. The person who is now in most de
mand is the one who has something to
sell, and this is at the very beginning of
the upward movement. The surplus re
source which were hanging heavily on
our hands three months ago are already
Dearly consumed. The unlimited sup
ply of raw materials, of which we never
tire boasting, is in the hills and mount
ains. The furnaces that are to put it
into merchantable shape are unbuilt.
The transportation lines of the country
are completely overwhelmed with busi
ness. There are scarcely sufficient mo
tive power and transportation facilities
to take care of the present business.
There are thousands of tons of fuel for
manufacturers lying at the mines and
ovens for the want of cars to take them
to Idle furnaces. True it Lt that some
small and badly located establishments
have gone out; but they have gone out
forever because of changed conditions,
and because of the irreversible tendency
towards the consolidation of manufac
turing industries In large establishments.
The advance of today has not Itecn so
marked or rapid, and tlte prices have
not gone so high, as in 1879; but in that
year the rise of prices began in the Uni
ted States and was followed somewhat
later by an advance abroad, based en
tirely on the American markets. Our
market held prices up, and when it broke
the whole came down with a crash; but
now the conditions are reversed. This
country cannot be flooded with foreign
manufactures. With this prospect for a
large business opening to our furnaces
and mines, with advancing prices reach
ing far into the future, it is the manifest
duty of congress to really 'protect' Amer
ican industries by relieving their raw
material of the burdens now laid upon
"How would you apply this to your
"I do not want to be understood as
peaking from a purely selfish stand
point. Whether or not a protective
tariff has built up such industries as ours
is not so much of a practical question aa
what is the proper policy to be pursued
in the present and for the future. It is
literally 'a condition, not a theory, which
confronts us.' When the great works at
Sparrow Point shall be in full operation,
the Pennsylvania Steel company must
import 1.000,000 tons of BeHsemer ore
per annum. To restrict us to the home
supply is utterly impracticable; there
are no ores to be had at home such aa
are needed for our purposes. We would
have to go thousands of miles into the
Interior for them. To raise the duties
on this ore to such a point as to 'protect'
the American mines and miners from
Cuban and Mediterranean Bessemer ores
would simply be to close all our works,
put out our f urnaces, throw tens of thou
sands of workingmen out of employment,
and render unproductive tens of millions
of capital. Even at the present rate of
duty we have to pay $750,000 per year
tariff tax. This must either come off the
wages of American workingmen or off
the profits of American manufacturers.
This means $1.60 Impoat on every ton of
our product, and a handicap of that
amount upon us in our competition with
foreign manufacturers for whatever dis
tance that dollar and a half would carry
our products into the world's market
further than they now go. My theory is
that if the government should remove
the present duty on ore, it would be
vastly conducive to the building up of
industrial establishments on the sea
board. The iron manufacturers of the
west can find their market in the west.
They will have, as they ought to have,
the advantage of home ores at their own
door; and these will always have the
advantage of railroad transportation over
foreign ores admitted free of duty."

A love affair in Kansas City recently led

and told her that lie bad failed in business
and that he was going to Australia. He asked
her if she would go with him. She declined.
Then be asked her if she would go to the

Then he rushed upon her and cut her terribly.
She struggled with him for a time and then

In the Swim, hut Not of It.
A charming young woman from a western
town, on a visit to some friends in the Quaker
City swell set, hn learned a thing or two.
Her breezy sociability has been a revelation
to the frozen aired dames in the City ot
I'enn. She was at a grand reception the
other uigut where all the swell world aud his
wife wore present. Next morning, aa she
was sitting at lute breakfast, she suddenly
broke out with:
"What a lovely thing thut was lost niht!"
"Charming indeed," returned her hostess,
nibbling a bit ot toast.
"Aud tlio men how agreeable!"
"I was, I will coufcta to you, much pleased
with a rather tall, slender gentleman. We
became acquainted somehow or other by ac
cident, though we conversed for a good ten
minutes. 1 saw him afterward several times
in the throng, but he was a stranger, I fancy,
for no one seemed to know him aud nobody
poke to him. Wasn't it singular that be
was not introduced around.' So agreeable,
"Oil, everybody knew him."
"lnd.-ed, then he is not fond of society!"
'"Then he doesn't care tor people; takes no
notice of them."
"On the contrary, ho notices everybody.
That is part of bis business."
"What U bis busiuesbf"
"He Is a detective."

young lady from the west received a gentle

THE STATE SUPERVISORS.
The Conveatle at BlomlBctoD'
Offleera Elected and Mat :ers ef lao-
About one hundred saperrisors were
present at the state convention of those
officers at Bloomington, at hlch Rock
Island was represented by Supervisors
Campbell, Wllsoa and Cralle. The elecs
Hon of officers resulted:
President S. R. Miller, of St. Clair
Vice President A. W. Elakesly. of
Secretary J. A. Quann, of LuSslle
There were discussions upon the
questions of the incurably insane and
county paupers. It was the unanimous
opinion of those present tha; the state
should provide state asylums for those
incurably Insane, and an effort will be
made by this organizstion tc have tbe
next legislature make approbations for
this purpose. "How theCou ity Panpers
Can Be the Most Economically Cared
For" was a question discussed at length,
and a very great difference in this item
of expenditure In the differei t counties
was shown. For ins tunc a, McLean
county, one of the largest in the state,
cares for her paupers with a total annnal
expenditure of 110.000. while Vermillion
county, one of the smallest, sjiends $30,-
000 for this purpose.
At Wednesday's session there was a
disscussion upon a resolution declar
ing "that the police system of the
state shou'd be taken nut of the
hands of the sheriffs and placed un
der tbe control of the state a lthorities."
It was argued in favor of this that it was
bad enough for a man to have his prop
erty stolen without being pu. to tbe ad
ditional expense of hunting U up. Tbe
crime is one aganst the community full
as much as against the individual, and
therefore the community as represented
by the state officers should in xrest itself
in capturing the thinf.
The following am the principal recom
mendations embodied in the .-eso'utions
adopted by the convention: That the
state establish a system of ftale police
for the apptebenslon of crininals, with
a central head at Springfield and con
sisting of sheriffs and town sonstables;
that money be taxed on the same basis as
other personal property; that the state
take care of all the insane, ml ether cur
able or incurable; that a lej al ver 'ict
may be rendered by five-sixths of a jury;
that the question of supportirg paupers
by townships instead of count cs be sub
mitted to the people; that tbe Australian
system of balloting be a.lopted; that ail
mortgages be taxed, whether owned in
tbe county or out of it; that boards of
supervisors appoint overseers of the poor
in all towns of over 4, COO inhabitants;
that the World's fair be held in Chicago.

Beruk, Jan. 16. In bis speech to the

rejoiced that the employers bad removed the

strikes would not recur. The government
was willing to attend to tbe workmen's com
plaints and demands, but it would promptly
suppress disorder. Tbe emperor expressed
the belief that the artisan class would con
stantly become more satisfied with their po
sition. Good grounds for such feeling on
their part, he thought, could be found in the
successful operation of tbe system of work
ingmen'a insurance, in which the govern
