THE STEEL'RAIL INFANT.
LOUD WAILS ABOUT PRETENDED
0 ANGER TO THE INDUSTRY.
Coploua Shedding of Useless Tears Home
Interesting; Information Concerning; the
Kquality of Prices In Rnglaml and tha
A protectionist trado paper of Nt:w
York city. The American Metal Market.
scores tho steel rail makers for whimper
ing over a rumored intention to reduce the
tariiT ou rails from the present duty of
$17.92 per ton to $10 per ton, ami tells
them that they can get along perfectly
wen so lone; b3 their protection is not
less than that on pijj iron.
ihe rumor alluded to has since been
denied, but setting it on foot has served
the useful purjrose of calling attention
to the rank absurdity as well as injustice
of this duty, since our mills have long
tiince demonstrate-!, their ability to com
pete with foreign makers on even terms.
whenever tliey can obtain raw material
as cheaply; their true interest Mng,
therefore, in free ore and pi 5 iron, rather
than in higher but ineffective duties on
So long as the business of making rails
was hedged about by patents as well as
tariff laws, it remaiued an absolute mo
nopoly in the hands of the few who con
trolled the patents and who, beins shield
ed by these from domestic competitioa
and by a high tariff from foreign com
petition, grew fat on the excessive prices
wnicn tney compelled the American pub
lic to pay for their product. The spoil
thus accumulated still acts in their hands
as a club with which to retain the manu
facture within the old 1 in? bv force; but
the possibility of home competition as
roon as the essential patents expired
quickly reduce ! the blackmail margin;
so that for some years past the difference
in selling price b-t ween the finished rails
an i lhat of the material used has been no
greater in America than in England.
1 lie hackneyed plea that the tariff is
maintained primarily for the lenetit of
workingnien, and that a cut in wages
must follow any reduction of duties, is
even less excusable in this branch of the
iron industry than iti anv other. Not
only is the wage cost jut ton no higher
at home than abroad (as is the case in so
many branches of manufacturing, where
high wages lieing paid for more efficient
work really results in cheap lalxirl, but it
is no secret that even the dailv wages ut
American mills are. a tride less than 1
Of the two concerns whoso managers
made the loudest outcry tlm other day
against a reduction of the tariff, claim
ing that it would necessitate lower wages
to save the princely dividends from any
shrinkage, that at Scranton has reieat-
edly of late years exported rails to
Canada in competition with Great Brit
ain, and could undoubtedly have ex-
tcnuiHl the business much further had
they not lieen given by governmental
generosity a more profitable field to work
at home. The owners of these works
as well as of that other sturdv beggar
whose lamentations were likewise so
piteous at even a hint of dancer to the
$17.93 duty the Oarnegio aggregation
of mines at Pittsburg are also large
owners of ore and coal lands, which fact
may cloud their eyes to the truth recog
nized by Mai. Bent, of the Pennsylvania
Steel company, that what the rail mak
ing industry proin-r needs is not high
tariffs, but cheap materials.
In the present state of the market the
pig iron and Spiegel which goto make a
ton of rails cot about -rJ in England,
but are worth f33 iu the United States.
owing chiefly to the necessity of impor
ting most of our spiegel, and the price of
rails in tsith countries is about S35. It
is seldom that so exact a parity has ex-
iledrand it is now due in great measure
to the wider prosterity enjoyed by Eng
land at present as a consequence of its
broader markets; but it vividly illustrates
how alisurd is even a $10 duty. Even
when the two markets were furthest
apart of recent years, rails bringing only
$20 in England against over $30 iu Amer
ica, the foreign makers got their material
for $12, while domestic ones had to pay
not less than the owners of the com plete
natural monopoly vested in mines be
ing able toexactfrom the comparatively
open industry of manufacture the full
amount of the tax that the latter was
enabled, under the shield of the tariff, to
levy on the people.
At first sight it would appear that only
the superstition born of degrading de
pendence upon government pap had led
these manufacturers to plead for reten
tion of their swaddling clothes rather
than to insist upon being given free ma
terials with which to challenge the world.
hen we reflect, however, that so many
of these iron lords who talk of cutting
down wages at the same moment that
they are lavishing wealth on their ier
eonal enjoyment are owners of mines as
well as mills; that it tnav easily pay them
to run the one 011 a small margin for the
sake of the enornjous profits to be taken
out of the other, aud that, although the
plunder is not very great at the moment,
they may be looking forward to a change
in prices with the determination that
whatever befalls they shall not Buffer,
we may give them credit for more
shrewdness than appears on the surface.
Ihe thing most to be woudered at is
that other rail manufacturers who have
not the cream of the trade iu the owner
ship of raw material should submit to
having their business limited by a tariff
out of which they no longer get any
thing; and perhaps even more that there
6hould still be any workingmen that are
deluded into believing that a tariff of
$17.92 a ton is needed to maintain wages
in an industry where the total cost of
transforming raw material into finished
goods averages $7 to $4 a ton and is never
more than, $10 a ton.
In Providence, li. I., there are four
woolen mills which consume more wool
than the entire Btate of Ohio produces.
That is why the movement for free 'wool
has become no strong among the manu
facturers. TUB Spring Hedicin.
Tbe popularity which Hood's Sarsapa
rilla has gained as a spring medicine is
wonderful. It possesses lust those ele
ments of health-givlDg, blood purifying
and appetite-restorine which everybody
seems to need at this season. Do not
continue in a dull, tired, unsatisfactory
condition when yon may be so much ben
flited by Hood's Sarsaparilla. It purifies

- "Another wonderful discovery has
been made, and that, too, by a-lady in

clutches upon her and for seven years she
withstood its severests tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months she
coughed incessantly and could not sleep.
She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption and was
so much relieved on taking the first dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her
name is Mrs. Luther Lutz." Thus write
