pursued this avocation d ligently and

appointed and in the two years that be
served proved one of the ni st efficient

a general feeling of regret minifested by
residents on his route when he resigned

That I'npopaUr Itavrnnorl Ordi
The Davenport Tribune attempts to
smooth matters over for the Davenport
council for that unpopular electric railway
ordinance and says that "surely the coun
cil is not asking too much when it asks
for $ 500 per yenr from the Holmes syn
dicate for what is a very valuable fran
chise. As the Tribune stated yesterday
morning, there are two sides to the ques
tion and strong arguments can be used on
both sides. The Tribune hopes to see the
matter amicably adjusted and the work of
equipping the lines proceeded with at
once." The Tribune evinces very strange
tact when it encourages this imposition
on the Holmes people, and ytt hopes to
see the matters amicably adjusted. The
Holmes people will probably submit to no
adjustment until they see the embargo
Davenport has placed on their enterprise
raised. The Detucrat more cleailv voices
the correct position when it says:
The refusal of the city council to grant
the Holmes syndicate street car line elec
tric privileges equal to those granted the
Kraay street line was the talk of the town
yesterday. And public sentiment as ex
pressed on the streets was nil one way.
And that one way it might have been
added was that the Holmes people were
not treated fairly by the Davenport coun
cil. There is no use straddling the Ques
tion, for public sentiment in Davenport
does nots sustain the council's attitude

WHY THEY STARVED.
England Under Protection and ller
Prosperity Taklna; ttaape H kea Free)
Trade Principles Were Adapted
What Britain' Leadlaa; Thlakera
May ef American Fallacy.
In a letter writter to the Union Mr.
Howard Wells, postmaster of this city,
attempts to prove that Britibh free trade
Is an injury to that country and cites in
proof that a man in London died of star
vation. He quotes Raskin to show that
the British idea of free trade was and is
to have all the free trade to itself. With
out discussing that feature of the case, it
may be said that the protectionists claim
they can accamplish the same thing for
this country, and while, if successful, it
might be a barbarous mode of national
progress, yet the protectionists must hsve
learned by bitter experience that all their
legislation in that direction has been a
Matthew Arnold is also quoted to show
that free trade has been the means of in
creasing England's trade, business and
population, the very thing that free trad
ers in this country claim by the adoption
of that principle, or rather a
more nearly allied to it than the Chinese
wall theory adopted by the advocates of
high protection. Even if true, according
to the quotation from Matthew Arnold,
that about one in nineteen of England's
population is a pauper, it does arise from
free trade principles. However, that
country had tried protection for nearly
two hundred years before America
achieyed its independence. Adam Smith
in bis "Wealth of Nations," showed the
utter fallacy of such a system, but against
all opposition it remained in force until
the country was prostrated in every
branch of industry and labor. It has been
argued that England adhered to protec-
lon until she had placed herself in such
a condition that the could defy the world
and that then she practically abolished
her custom bouses and invited the world
to enter and compete. But this is
not true. Protection in England was
not altogethor abolished until 1840. For
some years before it was dying fast. The
people were on the verge of starvation.
and they looked ask
were making the laws. They could not
understand why bread was denied them.
They had seen meat but once a year, and
that at Christmas, the sight of which al
most created a panic among the strug
gling masses to reach it. This was the
condition about the year 1842. When Sir
Robert Peel was minister the thoughtful
people were grieyed and alarmed at his
position because of the condition of the
people. The manufacturing districts
were atricksn and mutterings of an un
pleasant nature were beard. The em
pioyers thematives could not see their
way out, and matters looked for them as
hard almost as for the employes. Daily
matters grew worse. All branches of in
dustry were affected. In some districts i
fourth of the population was reported to
be In a starving condition, and that they
would actually die from want unless
some prompt and extraordinary measures
were taken. In the woolen districts the
allowance to the independent laborer was
not two thirds of the smallest amount in
the workhouse. Half the master spinners
in a certain district had failed before 1842;
their dwelling houses to the number of
3,0j. were were shut up, and those who
lived in the others couldn't pay their
rent. In one manufacturing town 5.000
workmen were wa'.king the streets un
able to find anything to do. and the na
tional authorities were notified that mat
ters were getting beyond control, so that
the government was obliged to come to
the relief at once. In Manchester those
who were employed in collecting rents
dare not face their employers because
no rent could be collected
Dealers in provisions were openly preyed
up-n for food for starving children
Frantic women held starving children t
their breasts and demanded food. Par
ties of depraved men marched the streets
taking from those who possessed material
for food. New clothes were never thought
of. The rid ones were continually
patched until the original was not seen.
Bread t j the amount of half a penny was
an ordinary purchase. People once well
off were obliged to buy a pennvsworth
of something to moisten their potatoes.
There was starvation everywhere. Poor
rat'.'S were increasing in a startling man
ner. The trade of the shop keepeis was
falling off at a ruinous rate. One man in
1833 bad retired from business leaving
property worth $300,000 to his sons.
Both his own and his sons' fortunes went
and he was living on a salary of less than
$5 a week. Families that bad been com
fortable were sleeping on shavings and
trying to get "blue milk" on every other
day to use with their oat meal, and this
was final! replaced by water. Premiums
were offered people to leave the country.
The poor held meetings after dark,
liehted by a tallow candle, and talked
over their grievances told how in the
better days they had had enough to keep
body and soul together, but evon that
they could ni t have now. The tales of
sorrow aud suffering were pathetic as told
by the sufferers themselves.
It will not do to say that all this pov
erty and degradation was the result of the
corn laws, for while by them, it is true,
the food productions of the farm and raw
materials were "protei t-id," everything
and everybody was protected tUo the
land owner and mill owner and the gatbt
erer of seaweed. Everybody that manu
factured was clamoring for protection and
got it. And it was not until 1846 when
the barriers to national prosperity were
torn away, that the date of England's
manufacturing progress began.
WHAT OTHERS SAT.
It has been given out that England has
been writhing in agony about the McKin
ley bill. To show how these agonies take
form, the London Standard says that the
measure may diminish England's trade
with America, but it will aid that country
immensely to spread into other quarters.
A number of Eng ish merchants and mans
ufacturers have looked forward with
dread to the time when America would
enter the markets of the world to com
pete with on a free trade basis. Their
alarm will now disappear. "To our own
colonies, to the new fields in Africa and
to all countries desirous of developing
their foreign trade," asserts the Standard,
"continuance of the high U' in Amei-
will be an excellent bit of g tune.
A Scotch statesman, Mr. yes Hilt,
who bas just completed a tour of the
world, says: . "All I can say is, Qod help
Englishmen, when the Americans po for
free tiadel At this moment tbey are pay
ing thirty millions into our pockets on
account of the tbip building and carrying
trade which their idiotic navigation laws
have lost to them.' "
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, in an inter
view with a representative of the New
York Timet, said:
"As an Englishman, I am glad to see
me united states adopt the McKinlev or
any other bill that will serve to map tain
the bulwark of protection that has been
erected around this country. The iiigh
tariffs which the United States ha? ex
acted ior yeirs nave served to inc; .'ase
England's trade and enrich her ier-
chants. I have repeatedly said in pub
lic at borne what I now sav to you, chat
England would suffer great loss :tbe
protective system should be abolish d in
the united states. we hive bu up
an enormous trade with the cout ries
of South America, with Austsiia,
ana omer countries, and which we
could not bold if free trade were
adopted here. You have enormous re
sources in raw materials, in worktaan-
ship, and in machinery, against which
England would cut a sorry figure if foth
countries were placed on an equal foot
ing in the race for commercial supremacy.
will not say that England would be
totally vanquished, but she woul i be
greatly injured in the competition, in a
few years the United States would lule
the commercial world beyond the shallow
of a doubt. Those people in Eng'md
who have expressed themselves in oppo
sition to the measuie evidently have not
studied the question as they should.
iney neea to examine Americas re
sources. As an Englishman, therefore. I
hope your policy of protection will be
kept up indefinitely. The higher the
tariffs the better will I be satisfied, for I
cannot imagine a eevcrer blow to my
country than the United States could deal
by declaring for free trade."
