SOME MORALS DRAWN FROM THE
ENGLISH MINERS' STRIKE.
Facta M hicli Show That Unties on Iron
Aro No Ioner Needed Prices In Thnt
Country Are nielier Than Here The
Mine Owners Get the Profit.
The strikes anions: British coal minora
which have just begun, at once offer
valuable testimony to the
the foreign iron and coal industries under
rree trade, as compared with the stagna
tion in this country that has been caused
by the restrictive tariff, and furnish the
New England manufacturers who are
pleading for a little relief from present
duties w ith a valuable argument, by de
monstrating that no such reaction in
prices abroad is to lie found as nhrml.1
lead the Pennsylvania monopolists to be
at ail timorous about granting the very
slight sop asked for. Small as this is,
however, being only a reduction or crude
iron that would Ixj utterly inadequate to
muting an e.tective com pet it ion between
foreign iron and the product of domestic
mines, it is well understood that the
ways and means committee will refuse
to relax any of the present duties, al
though these have become entirely pro
hibitive as the result of important
changes in the character of the business.
During tha past year the iron market
hasassumed a most unprecedented shape,
and one which superficially bears out a
part of the protectionist contention; but
at the same time it does away w ith all
need of further protection, even from a
protectionist standpoint. Our labor being
so much cheaper than foreign labor, by
reason of supnrior efficiency, wc have
always been able tocompete with foreign
manufacturers on even terms, despite
dearer material, in highly finished forma
of iron and steel.
For some years back our imports of
these were comparatively small, but up
to a very recent period the domestic
price of pig iron was maintained to just
a little less than it would cost to import
foreign pig with duty added, and the
manufacturing industries which furnish
the consumption of pig iron were com
pelled to pay about 7 a ton the amount
of duly more than they would have
had to do but for the tariff, their own
trade and consequently their power of
consumption lieing thereby lessened to
at least a proportional degree.
Makers or pig iron on their part, al
though enabled by the tariff to charge
high prices for their product, the de
mand tor which was necessarily smaller
on that account, were forced to pay cor
respoiulingly hieh prices for their ma
terial. The large jiercentago of waste
mineral carried in iron ore tm a rule for-
tuils its lieing transported long distances
except when as in the case of the rich
l-ilie bujienor or Lake Champlain ores-
it isnearly pure metal; and consequently
each district of irou production is to a
great cxient dependent upon local sup
plies soh ly. Furnaces, being human
handiwork, aro susceptible of indefinite
multiplication and in many sections have
been erected injudiciously nd out of
proportion to tiie neighboriiiir ore Kiin-
plies, which r.re the product of nature,
and, therefore, an absolutely limited
v hene t r furnaces were many ia
proportK... to the ore within reach, as
throughout the east was the case, the cost
of the latter was enhanced to the full ex-
tentof the tariff on pig iron, the latter op
erating, not as an encouragement to man-
uracturers,tutas a bounty to the owner
ship of mines. When furnaces were com
paratively few, as is even yet the casein
the south, the advantage in the division
of tariff spoils lay with the furnacemen.
A knowledge of this fact caused aneau-er
scramble to utilize the mineral wealth of
ine soutn almost as soon as the recon
struction period was fairly past and the
fears of further political troubles there
were removed; and the Grst comers,
hampered as they weri with the expen
sive htlxir that low daily wages produced,
yet amassed wealth pearly as fast as had
those who had skimmed the cream of
eastern iron deposits beforo these had
acquired an excessive value through the
imposition 01 a protective tariff. But
there was no market whatever for raw
iron in the south, and the new supplies.
sent northward and eastward, found
only customers whose operations were
o shackled by tariff exactions that they
uau not. tne ability to absorb an extra
quantity of iron except at lower figures.
t'nees therefore steadily fell, not as a
result of an improvement in processes
stimulated by a beneficent system of
protection, but simply because the ac
tivities of the American people had been
so limited and constrained through tariff
laws, the masses had been robled of so
large a iart of their earnings, that they
had not the money to pay, or rather the
goods to exchange, for more iron at the
old prices. Latterly, therefore, we have
seen American iron prices no higher
than foreign ones, even ith a total
elimination of either duties or freights
from the comparison.
It is true that foreign prices are con
siderably higher now than they were two
years ago, as a result of the great expan
sion of trade which has been enjoyed by
those countries whose indust ries were not
repressed by governmental interference.
Making due allowance for this, it has yet
been conclusively demonstrated by the
steady increasing of new enterprises at
the low average values of the past three
years, that the real cot to make iron is
no greater in this country than anywhere
else; that when artificially high prices
prevailed it was not the manufacturers
who were lenelited at the exense of the
rest of the nation, but only the mine
owners, whose power of levying toll upon
tne wnoie people lias alone been restricted
by the recent uecline; and, further, that
if we were to wine out all tariff on iron.
and thus abolish even the slight existing
margin that stilt keeps us out of the
world's market, the iron industry proper,
instead of being destroyed, would gain
by complete freedom pf action just as it
has by the partial freedom which came
through the opening up of southern ore
deposits, and that the monopoly interest
alone, of all these concerned, could pos
