The manner in which ' American ins
dosiry" i protected under our protective
tariff ayatem in exemplified in tbe arrival
of more than 700 immigrants at New York
on a single chip under c ntract to work at
mining in Pennaylvaaia. In tbia one in

diacove.ed before they bad paused bevond

reason to believe that thouaands of im-
mitrranta are constantly coming about
whose condition at contract peoni noth

into mines and milla and at once take the
places of others who bave been in the
country long enough to know that they
should have better wages, and who,
because they demand that right are

live tariff it maintained for the ben

thus keep both hands continually busy

workiogmen by means of starvation
wages Enormous fortunes are built up
every year by thta double-acting p-orees,

pay two prices for the manufactures and
fuel they consume, are expected to aee
In these vast, fortunes convincing proof
