Trants and the Tariff.
In the enae debate on trusts the other
day Senator Vest gave an interesting list
or tne trims and snowed the dependence
of these monopolies in each case he
named upon tariff duties exclading com
petition from abroad.
1. The steel rail trust, buttressed by a
tariff tax of $17 per ton.
2. The nail trust, by a tariff tax of
l $ 1.25 per 100 pounds.
3. The iron nut and washer trust, by a
tax of $2 per 100 pounds.
4. The barbed fence wire trust, by a
tax of 60 cents per 100 pounds.
5. The copper trjst. by a tax of $2.50
per 100 pounds.
6. The lead trust, by a tax of 1 50 per
7. The slate pencil trust, by a tax of 30
8. Tne nickel trust, by a tax of $15 per
9. The zink trust, by a tax of 32.50 per
10. The sugar trust, by a tax of 2 per
11. The oil cloth trust, by a tax of 40
12. The jute bag trust, by a tax of 40
13. The cordage trust, by a tax of 30
14. The pp"r envelope trust, by a tax

15. The gutta percha trust, by a tax of
85 per cent.
16. The castor oil trust, by a tax of 80
cents per gallon.
17 The linseed oil trust, by a tax of 25
cents per gallon.
18. The cottonseed oil trust, by a tax
of 25 cents per eallon.
19. The borax trust, by a tux of $5
per 100 pounds.
20. The ultramarine trust, by a tax of
$5 per 100 pounds.
Senator Sherman added to this list the
match trust, at the head of wbicb is Gen.
Alger, of Michigan; the standard oil
trust and various grain trusts.
Monopolies and trusts strike always at
thfc necessaries of life, and the articles re
quired and used by tbe mass of the pen
le. Thus in the republican tariff com
mon, coarse blankets and woolen goods
always bear a much higher duty than
the floe goods uced by tbe rich, and this
discrimination runs through the whole
of the Allison bill and U surces-ior, the
McKinley bill. Both these bills tax the
roor much tv.nrtt heavily than the rich.

MURRY NELSON ON FUTURES.
The Chicago Operator Gives the States
men Some More Points.
Wasbixoton City, April li Murry
Nelson, of Chicago, made an argument be
fore the house committee, on agriculture
yesterday in opposition to the Butterworth
bill to prevent dealing in options and fut
ures. He declared that all the regular com
mercial exchanges in the country were in
sympathy with the obvious intention of the
framers of the bill the suppression of puts
and calls and bucket-shop gambling. But
this law would kill all kinds ot trading. "It
is known to every one," said Mr. Nelson,
"that as a rule farmers want to market their
crops as soon ils possible after harvest. In
Host cases their necessities are such that
Ihey ara uuuble to hold the grain. Here
rapital steps in, estimates the future value
of grain, and advances the money on which
to move the crop, hoping to gain a small
margin of profit for itself."
The Whole Morfna Operandi.
After saying that England and conti
nental Eurojie, through the great marts of
Liverpool an I Antwerp, advance a large
part of tho capital required to jiay the
farmer cash for his crops, at an assumed
future value, 1'r. Nelon continued : The
farmer wants to sell his wheat, and he goes
to the railway station and asks the local
grain buyer for on offer. The grain buyer
has but small capital, and he cun go on buy
ing only by getting the money from one of
tne financinl centers. He takes in a quan
tity of grain, issues warehouse or crib re
ceipts against it, and sjnds these r---Ceipts
to his city correspondent as col
lateral. The cily merchant in turn car
ries the receipts to his banker and th -money
is advanced. As soon as poihle bills of
lading follow from the local dealer to the
city merchant, and from the merchant to
the bank as addition security. After the ar
rival of the grain in Chicago or other center
it is Knrch' use 1 und n archouse receipts issued
against it for use as collateral. This is the
system which tho bill would interfere with
and suhj.-et to hara.-wment."
In reply to questions Mr. Nelson said the
local banks couid not advance one-tenth of
the capital required by any process now
known in commercial dealings.
REPORT ON ARBITRATION.

South and Central America and Havti. It
applies the principles of arbitration to all

decline to arbitrate is when, in its judg
ment, its independence may be endangered.

Questions already decided by treaty can
not be reopened, but all disputes now pend
ing may be referred to arbitration, as well
as all questions concerning the validity, in
terpretation or enforcement of such agree
ments. There is no limit as to who shall be
arbitrators, even private individuals being
eligible, ami the court may cousLst of only
one person if he is agreed to oy the nations
concerned Provision is mnde for an um
pire, who shall not he a member of the court,
but shall decide such question as the arbi
trators disa gree upon. The treaty is to ba
in force twenty years, or longer if no na
tion proposes to withdraw, in which case it
must give one year' notice, and during that
year tie subject to the provisions of the
treaty. When any one withdraws the treaty

striking and abusing Wild, nnd drives home
the necessity for those w. o command others
to be able to command themselves. He says
abuse of Riiliordinntes by words or blows can
not lie tolerated under any circumstances.
He also disapproves of the lieutenant acting
as judge advocate at the trial of Wild, and
tells him that a nice sense of propriety and
due appreciation of self interest should have
suggested to him the wisdom of asking to be
rxcuMo I in the cuse, a request which would,
of course, have lieen complied with.

who strangely disappeared Thursday even

taken into tbe suburbs and almost killed by
some villain or villains unknown. Miss

Garden streei, and found she had been there

for the pivscription. Somewhere between
the two joints, only a few blocks apart,
she sem l to have dropped out of sight.
Mr. Kelso, now thoroughly alarmed, en

climbed over the great bell and collar to the
top of the chimney. On reaching the top he
waved one hand and a wild cheer arose from
the assembled watchers. While he was
raising the iron ladder, seven oreight devout
old women stood against the fence of the
MiU-end miil, adjoining, and prayed loudly
for his safety and that of his family, some
of them telling their beads with nervous
lingers as they watched him.

Sequel to a Recent Matrimo
THELTTT PLANS OF FLORIDA GIRLS
Marry ins; Tonne Northerners with an
Object in View Edward Phelan's
Dream of Wedded Bliss Knocked Oat
by the Perfidy of Ida Alorls Startling
News In a Letter from the West An
Ohio Girl's Mistake.
Greenfield, Mass., April 12. On March
13 these dbp&tches gave an account of the
marriage of Miss Ida Aloris, of Florida, to
Edward Pbelan, of Orange, and the very
business-like way that Miss Aloris demanded
before coming here to have her expenses
gnarnnt. ed both ways, iu case she objected
to ber lover when she saw him. Time has
produced a sequel in which the young
woman appears in a decidedly bad light.
The couple bad all their courting through
the mail, a matrimonial advertisement in
serted by Ida having set the ball rolling, and
their first meeting was when she stepped
off the cars at Orange, March 10.
Seeds of Suspicion Sowsw
After their marriage the couple went to
housekeeping in a little cottage, and every
thing went on smoothly until Phelan found
in bis wife's trunk a letter from a girl com
panion iu tin west, who also had found a
husband in a similar romantic way. The
writer said that her husband was generous,
aiid that s'.ie f xp -cte 1 to get several hun
dred dollars from him, and then leave. Sus
picion took root in the husUind's heart, but
he said nothing. Then letters begau to come
from the south to Ida, written in a ma-cu-line
hnn l. Naturally the loving husband
wanted to know the contents, but Ida re
fused to divulge.
A Letter 1 hat a Tale 1'nfobled.
Edward finally secured one of the letters
and found it tilled with protestations of
love, and urging th pretty brunette to ever
remain true and faithful to him, notwith
standing her marriage, and that he on his
part would remain true to her. Then there
was a uruction." Hot words and then sharp
blows were exchanged, and after this very
naturally came reparation. The unfortu
nate young man knew there was no divorce
for him, as both he and hU wife are Roman
Catholics, but ho strove to learn how badly
he bad been taken in, and wrote to the chief
of police at Tampa.
Another Lover at Tampa.
The rep'y assured him that the girl bad a
lover there, and that their marriage had
been forbidden by bis p irents. Thursday
Ida reeeiwvl a mony-oriler from the Tampa
young man and announced her intention of
quilting Orange yesterday. The theory is
that this game is not altogether a novel
one in tne tan 1 of alligators and that there
are a good many men in the north who have
had similar exp-riences with ent I prising
daughters of the sunny south.
