to pay 1 cenU more on esrh dinner pail.

American industry gets started when
everybody will become suddenly rich and
nappy under it. According to this it will
take but a year or two to put this tin
plate industry on its fit. What is the
peculiar difference between it and the
other "infant" industries that have been
running in this country for the past thirty
years, at least, and are Mill in such a
puny, struggling condition that they can
not stand slrme and are continually hold
ing out the hand of charity to the govern
ment for aid? And supposing it should
prove vastly different from other in
dustries and employ the large num
ber of men it is sid it would,
what better off will be the American la
borer? Will not the cheap Ubor of Wales
or other countries flock in here and do the
work? It is the same in nearly 1. 11 the
great American industries. There is
much (loquence expended upon protec
tion to the American laborer while the
fact is he gets no protection at all.
The factory owoers and the mine owners
'and the owners of nearly everything else

The Union and the Masons and the
general horde of high taxers make little
of the fact that an additional one hurt'
dred and twenty per cent of a tax on tin
is not much after all. They point to the
one and three-quarter cents on each din'
ner pail and say that is all the addi
tional amount you have to pay and
certainly that is not enough to make a
- cry about. True, a cent atd three-quar
ters would not make much difference in
buying a farm, but it makes considerable
difference in buying a postage stamp.and
tin pails are not the only things used in
this country made of that article. It is
by such contemptible mttliods that dust
is is intended to be thrown into the eyes
of the people who may not for the roo
ment contemplate the general result.
But, regarding tin t Htes, upon which
the old tax was one cent a pound, and
the new tax two and a fifth cents a pound

THE TIN PLATE TKADK
The tariff question involves such an
euorniiuii variety oi individual and busi
ness interest that are woven and inter
woven into every industry in such com
plex forms thHt no one mind can in a
life time matter more than a fraction of
it. For ibis reason the ridiculousness of

this political evil. Should such a course
be adopted, no doubt congress would be
kept busy for a few ye,rs taking the
aiuaa out oi me present Mi Mnley bill.
Had the writers of the constitution an
ticipated that the Fifty-first, congress
would make use of tariff changes to pay
political otiiigaiions, no doubt we would
have been snared the discomfort and in.

past two years. I'rotection is irood

to f MO.tHHI.lMHl to start an un
tried industry thut at best can't extend
beyond a dozen corpor itions, and even
doubtful if it starts at all, there must be
something wrong in congressmen's un
derstanding of political economy.
Such is tbe condition with the much
argued tin-plate industry. If congress
really wanted to make American tin
plates, instead of increasing the proBts
of galvanized iron shingle and galvanized
roofing iron, which the cheapness of tin
plate has prevented from paying over 30
per cent dividends, it would have solved
the problem for the interests of the peo
pie, and insured tbe success of American
We must concede that the money col
lected for revenue belongs to the people,
notwithstanding it is taken from them to
conduct the business of tbe country. Con-
cress is in part the business head of this
great corporation, and the people expect
it to conduct its business on business
principles. It orders the employment of
labor, the purchasing of goods, the man
ufacturing of goods; in fact, the govern
ment is a business institution the same as
any corporation, with this distinction,
that instead of paying cash dividends on
the money paid in the government com
pensates by giving individual protection
to life and property.
The people wish to unite tbe tin of the
Black Hills with tbe iron in the Allegha
nies, and ask congress o solve the prob
lem. See bow it does it. It goes to some
"old friends" who understand uniting lead
and iron for roofing material and asks
them to start the enterprise. These gen
tlemen Penernnslv nffW in in it ;r
greas will charge the people tl5 (MMMHK)
jeai luaieau oi yutsj.tHHt a year for the
tin plates they now must take from Eng
land in payment for wheat, corn, etc
The senate branch of congress modifies
the matter by putting a seven year limit,
equal to t75.(MMMXK). that the people must
be assessed for what? For a mere
promise from these old friends" that if
there is really tin in the Black. Hills, they
will make tin plates. This is all congress
has to show for this tax of $75,000,000.
To be sure it has seen what purported
to be companies formed and money paid
in to Btart several plant for this enter
prise, but which in fact were plants to
extend the galvanized shingle and roofing
business, which promises greater profits.
ow had congress not enjoyed the ac
quaintance of those "old friends," and bad
an nterest in the peoples welfare, it
would have seen at a glance that we could
not unite Black Hill tin and Alleghany
iron with protective American labor at a
price satisfactory to the people who are
clamoring for an outlet for surplus man

tnde of industries that use tin coverings,
and enable us to stll American tinplttes
in Wales, and at a profit.
It was clearly shown to the committees
of both bouses tbat cheap tin coverings
would increase tbe canning industry alone
to an extent tbat 50,000 to 100.000 more
hands would be employed, together with
a large acreage of farm lands to supply
the fruit and vegetables necessary.
Strong appeals were made to congress to
use good business principles in solving
this problem. It was argued that we had
better pay a bounty on every Bheet of tin
plates made, dedutting for this from the
present, or a reduced revenue on the im
ported article, than to levy a tax of three
cents on every milk pan of tbe farmer, or
two and a half cents on tbe dinner pail of
a laboring man. No doubt a like or a
better solution would have found favor,
had not the "new friends" so deeply con
cerned made it equally interesting to the
controlling spirits of the party in power
to have it otherwise.
To be sure congress invites the people
to come and advise with a committee hav

SAVED BY A BANK BOOK
HOW A GREENHORN CLEARED HIS
HOMESTEAD IN FLORIDA.
His IMaiutrous Experience Told by 1he
Survivor A Committee of "Cracker"
Made an Important Call on the Set
tler H la Check Book to the Rescue.
"I had been a clerk in a city store ever
since I was old enough to work, and I was
green. There ia no doubt about that in i ny
mind now, though I spurned the thou? ht
then. I had sold the stony little farm ou
the bleak Vermont hillside which had
come to me after my father had worried
himself into the grave trying to get rich on
it, and had landed in Florida full of guile
book opinions of the 'land of the cypress.'
"I took up a homestead on the long, nar
row strip of land that divides the Atlant ie
ocean from the Indian river. I did not go
to see it before 'entering' for it at the land
office, because I knew that was unneces
sary. "I reached the spot by sailboat from Titus
ville, at the head of the river-, and was de
lighted to find that I had neighbors not f ir
away, to the nort h and also to the aout ti.
They were Vrackera.' That ta the name
which one native Floridian applies toot hor
native Floridiaus whom he does not like.
They had orange groves, to le sure, but
they did not seem to be growing rich cn
their crops. This I attributed to the r
shiftless method of agriculture. Instead
of clearing their land of the big pine trees
that cunitiered it they merely girdled the
trees and left them standing, dead and
bare, a constant menace to parsers by and t o
the yonng orange treeu which were plante 1
among their root, as well as an eyesore on
c lkarivg Ul
I determined to cut my trees down i l
the giMsl old New England f.'isbion, clear
the land thoroughly and raise vegetable
bet ween t he rows of orange lira till they
were old enough to la-ar a golden harvest.
First I set to work on t he underbrush, and
then came my first experience with pal

I had come down in the early fall ami now
it was ataiut Christmas. The season had
leti ft pretty dry one, and the logs looked
so full of sap that I thought they would
burn, though too green to burn fast. So 1
set t hem on fire.
"That was the most disastrous fire I ever
lit. 1 forgot t hat t he sap of these trees was
mostly resin. Tbe way the flame crept
along through that mass ot underbrush
and leaped up every resinous pine tree it
met was terrific. I fought it as long as I
could move a limb and then dropiaxl, ex
hausted mid despairing, and watched it
roar off through the woods like an evil
spirit that I had raised and was powerless
to control. It whs sundown when I gave
up the fight ami 1 could do nothing more
"The exhaustion made me sleep far into
tbe next day, and I was awakened a little
after noon by loud knocks on my door.
Opening it, 1 was confronted by five or six
big, rough men. all armed with shotguns
and w ith an ominous look on their faces.
They strode into my cabin anil shut the
door behind them.
" 'Stranger,' said the spokesman gruffly,
'you have started a tire here in your darned
Yankee ignorance of fanuin', and all t he
good ye've done is to burn the rawsun and
the bark off a lot of green trees, and now
you've got a lot of black logs on yer hands
that are a dermal sight, meaner to handle
'taan ever. Hut yer derned fire has spread
into the groves of yer neightiors, where the
dead trees were still a-standin', and they
have lieen burned to the ground, as any
body but a natural born fool might V
knowed they would, and our orange trees
is rained with thera. Such varmint as you
isn't tit to live in this country. Say yer
prayers, mister, for we're going to plant
you before we go back.'
"I was terribly frightened, for I could
see they were in dead earnest. My teeth
began to chatter, but a bright thought
struck me. I had deposited some money
in n bank at Jacksonville on my way down,
and hud a check book with some blank
checks left in it, though tbe niotiey had all
been drawn out long agj.
" 'Gentlemen.' I said, 'I am clearing this
place for a northern i.ymlicate, who are
going to make extensive plantations here,
and 1 can pay you on the spot for your
losses, caused by my ignorance of Florida
forests, and 1 assure you that, such a thing
will not happen again.' With this I whip
Ied out my check hook, took up a pencil
and prepared to write with as much show
of confidence as I could muster uuder the
"I had been pretty free with the five or
six hundred dollars I had brought down
with me, and so the story of the northern
syndicate seemed to them to be likely
enough. The word syndicate anyway
seems to have an awe inspiring power
down there. The idii that a syndicate
might la- iN'tiniless seems preposterous.
Hut it was the hank checks that over
whelmed thern. Checks on a real national
bank were something they hail heard of,
but never handled before.
"You may la- sure they swindled me aw
fully in making up the estimates of their
losses, but I was not disposed to lie penuri
ous, merely making enough objection to
allay possible suspicion. So I drew a check
for each man, big enough to buy his farm
five times over, and they went away laugh
ing to themselves at my gullibility.
"As soon as they were out of sight I
packed into my Unit all my outfit, set every
stitch of sail and reached the nearest town
by the next night, sold my outfit for enough
to buy a ticket, north, and did not bre&the
freely till I felt myself well lieyond the
reach of those simple 'crackers, whose
troves I had ignorant ly ruined, and in
whose hands I knew my life would not be
worth an hour's purchase when they dis
covered how I had escaped their just in

LIFE ON A WATER FARM.
There I- I'roflt In Itaistng Fish and Frnga
It has not lieen many years since water
farmim; was added to the (Missibilities of
"agriculture" in Indiana. It la-gun as a
diversion. It has liecome a business.
Enough time has now elapsed to demon
strate that water farming may lie made
practicable and profitable at least as prof
itable as some other rural occupation, and
more enticing than the ordinary life of an
agriculturist. As much money can be
made off an acre of water as off an acre of
land, including well located fish and frog
ponds ou the one hand nnd ordinary farm
ing on the other.
( ne of the pioneers of water farming in
Indiana is Mr. Joseph Manlove, of Miltou.
Seven years ago he bought a small piece of
low land lying between the White Water
canal mid White Water river. He deter
mined to Hood the low land, and to add to
his possessions the adjoining high land for
park purposes. His place uow includes
fourteen acres of water and twenty-one of
land. His business is largely with the
wuter and only incidentally with the dry
land. His first purpose was to establish a
carp jMind, from which the fish market
might lie supplied. This was accomplished
in two years with comparative ease. Now
he has practically an unlimited quantity
of this variety of fish. However, the pub
lic taste also calls for bass, and Manlove
determined to add this variety to his sup
ply. His lake is now stocked with a vast
supply of black bass. They have grown
finely, and bass fishing will be "put on the
market." Bass promise so much better
than carp that "Farmer" Manlove uses his
young carp as food for his bass.
Still another "department" has bees add
ed to the "farm" frogs. Four acres of
shallow water, well grown In flags, were
set apart as a breeding place for frogs.
Thej.bjeeianigroyfjapldly JFpnr thou-
sand tadpoles were put Into this breeding
pen. Many of them are now of a market
able size, and are worth 3.50 and S3 a
dozen. In catching them for market a
light at night is nsed. Tbey stare at the
light, and can be caught and handled with
ease in its glare. In catching large quan
tities of carp the lake is drained off. In
winter tbe marketable fish are kept in
It is interesting to observe the water
farmer at his work. He can use a horse
for side purposes, but he needs neither,
plow, planter nor reaper. Suppose he has
gone out to feed. He has with him mid
dlings or other grain. He goes to the breed
ing pond, sounds a gong or blows a whistle
and thousands of frogs come hopping from
their shelter. They eat the food ravenous
ly, and become so tame that the farmer
handles them as a woman does her pet
chickens. The same food is just tbe thing
for young and old carp. "Fish and frogs
take to grain and grain products," said
Mr. Manlove, "like boy does to apple
dumpling. Part of the season it is not
necessary to feed my stock at all. The
water grass seeds make the finest food for
fish, and at certain times of the year I
rarely prepare a fish for the table that I
do not rind him filled with gross seed."
Pairing In Jhe Houae.
There is alwolntely no protection thrown
about the matter of arranging pairs in the
house. The only rule upon the subject
says t hat after the first call of the day all
pairs shall be announced by the clerk. Tbe
practice is for members making the pairs
to hand the announcement of them to the
clerk, who sees they are printed in The
Record. Xo questions are asked, and tbe
memliers fix up tbe pairs to suit them
selves. Thus, when a member is aljsent
and is not paired, he can telegraph to a
colleague und find some member on the
other side in the same situation, when it is
arranged that The Record shall state that
these two absent mepjliers were paired.
One member who went to Europe with
out taking the precaution to get a pair was
used to protect half a dozen members in
one day. It was also found that he was
paired wit h a member who never knew the
other man was absent from Washington.
