IT IS AN Aiit OF SHODDY.
WHY ICULTY IS FOUND IN GET
TING A GOOD COAT OA CARPCT.

Bat a oh any coat aad a ababbv coat are
not tha mom thing. No man who wears
a good oat becomes a cheap man dimply
because ha bnsxarht his coat at Mr Wana
maker't bargain oountar. Like the
Sowers that bioorn in the apring, that
has nothing to do with the case.
Bat why is It so hard to get a cheap
ooat of gond qaahtrf
The answer is simple: It X shoddy.
It is not generally known to what aa
extent bbM shoddy busineas Is carried on
in this country, nor how the bniiaasj
haa come to r- card itself as one of the
leriumate industries of the oountrr. In
1 -TO the shoddy mills of tha United
ued 19,V0.000 poands of raw
and in 1880 the used 52.000.OsJ.
There are more than 100 shoddy mills in
tha United States, and about I30.000.0n0
is invested in these enterprises and in
hand lire rags.
The cause of this remarkable derelop
mant affords a curious illustration of
bow a congrtssnonal committee can he
hoodwinked by those who hare axes of
various kinds to grind. In MH the
joint executive committee of the wool
growers an 1 tha wool manufacturers
asked for duties whtch discriminated
beaviry against the ordinary cheap
clothing, s ich as is worn by tha great
majrity of the peopla. They gars as
an sstcwx for this request their desire to
protect the American working people
from foreign hoddy goods.
These goods." they amid, "if admitted
at moderate duties, would take the place
of oaw sounii clothes." They further told
tha committee that the American manu-
rould be compelled to 'fatori-
ti.. r f Mm aaasj r ...s
I or surrender the business to tha
n. what was the action of the
in view of this "stato of
To prerent the deplorable results
poossed out by tha growers aad the
manufacturers the committew rerom
mended a duty of 12 cent a pound on
importations of foreign shoddy, and. in
to make their action stiil more
ira. duties ranging from 80 to 130
per cent, were placed upon the imports
of snaaufactures of shoddy. The peti
tioners, aa usual, had gotten what they
asked for: to those who had knocked the
d n were opened.
But aute now the consequences: Now
that America was to ha ao liaign the
dumping ground for European shoddy.
own manufacturers rushed with
basts into the ehoddr business
themselves. Already in 1880 the shoddy
used by American mills had grown to
throe times the quantity used In 1970;
aad tha sssssus of this year will show
that the same rate of increase has been
more than maintained. On tha 8th of
lat October. The Philadelphia Record
reported that: "During the last seven
months the imports of woolen rags and
shoddy were more than d utled in quan
tity and value in comparison with the
imports in the corrtapoodiag period of
Tha shoddy busineas now considers
itself one of the Wvitimate claimants for
protection. Two years afro the shoddy
men went before the senate committee
with the Int-nt." they said, merely of
setting forth a few of the questions which
are of vital importance to the labor in
terest." They suhmirtrl a report in which they
attacked the Mills bill with all their venom
and they would hear nothing of free wool.
Free wuoJen rags were also aa object of
tbeir ire. A free woolen rag -afrrr at
them had the effect that the red rag of
the S)ie&ish bull fighter bas on a mad
bull Tht y predicted that if these woolen
rax and wool extracts were put upon
the fix list, the American manufactures
of shoddy would ship their stock to Eu
rope, there have it worked up and re
turned to this country. "And trie coat,"
they curiously confessed, "would not be
more than one-half of what it coats
So, then, we not only wear oar Amer
ican manufactured shoddy, but we pay.
according to this confession of the shod
dy makers, double what li. cot would
be under free raw materials Even
shoddy rests upon the tariff and pleads
its right to the home market. Two
years ago the Republican national corn-
sent out a circular signed by aev
rirnis of sboddv manufacturers.
in which these men protested strenu
ously against the free wool offered the
country by the Mills bilL
'This bill." they said, "as f ar aa it
affects the industry in which we are en
gaged hi a free trade measure, and as
such we are decidedly opposed to it.
We have determined in the coming dec
thoa to support the candidates of the pro
section party, HarriMn and Morton.
Their election we tsUaaarti i to be indis
peuaaole to the maintenance of oar bass-
Tbe development of this shoddy ban
uses has had very wide reaching results
The figures of the census of 1880 show
that 108 pounds of shoddy are mixed
with every 119 pounds of purs wool to
make our so called woolen goods.
It ss also true that the ratio of shoddy
ha carpets lias beea increasing rapidly,
la 1870 carpets were made of 80 parts of
wool to 30 pans of shoddy; in 1880 the
wool had fallen to 08 parts, and the
shoddy had risen to 82 parts.
A snore recent comparison is given by
the Dobsons a large firm of carpet man
ufacturers in Philadelphia. They say
that in M.000.000 pounds of carpet ma
terials there are 10.000.000 pounds of
clean wool. 90.000.000 of shoddy and
an.000.000 of other mixtures.
How much further this flood of shoddy
will Invade our fabrics cannot yet be es
timated. It is learned, however, that
some of the carpet manufacturers have
recently added to their plant an "im
proved" style of machine rv which will
enable them to spin stuff which up to
this time tbev have not beea able to use.

From I until p. m. the guard who mn

This arrangement does not meet the in

there is ft any time in the twenty-four
