"Everythine," he answer; d, "or nearly

commonly in use and which everybody
knows and can form an intt indent idea
of, are foreign fruits, uih as raisins,
prunes, currants and thine f 'bat na
ture. Take prunes, for in-twnce. but the
other articles would answer equally as
well for an illustration. Their cost, say
in the first half of Septemlt-r. would be
eight cents; the next half of that month
would be half a cent less, and each buc
ceeding half month a deorea; of half a
cent until the latter portion of Novem

crease will not be ma'ie, and tbe con
turner will have to pay it, as well as any
other advance that the importer may see
fit to put on in consideration of the priv
ilege gTanted uner the new law. It is
tbe same with glassware ami all kinds ot
goods that come to us in tUas such as

touched by way of an increase. In tbe

"Simply this, that the bent-fit that is

tariff on groceries is a tax?"
"Undoubtedly a tax and the consumer
pays every dollar of it. No, no man with

Commenting upon this.Joho E.Searles
Jr., of New York, who is treasurer of
the sugar trust, and who undoubtedly
speaks intelligently for that organization,
Concerning the effect r.f the new sugar
tariff on tbe business of the trust, 1 have
no doubt that the !I ct of thr lull will be
very largely to increase its business, inas
much as the removal of the lti"y on raw
ugars will reduce the cost ul ugar to
tbe consumer very nearly fir unite two
cents per pound, and tbe tendency will
be to stimulate consumption.
With free raw sugar today, granbUted
sugar of tbe best quality would sell at
three-quarter cents per pound to tbe job
The nun? of the free line at No. 16
instead of No. lit, I). S., is not of so
much consequence to the rt Hurra as to
the consumers. The refiners, especinl'v
those in tbe trust, will Ik- able to adapt
themselves without any difllci.lty to the
change in the character of the raw sugars
which will be imported under the new
tariff, ail of w hich, or at least i per cent
of which, w ill go through the retineries.
inasmuch as the consumers of this coun
try have been educated during the last
fifteen years to the use of bieher grades
of refined sugar than No. 10 raw, and
will never raurn to that grade of sugar,
especially in view of the fact that the
cheaper grades of refined sugar, far su
perior to No. 16 raw, are actually sold by
the refiners at a less price than the latter
can be imported for.
The fact is that tbe change of tbe
standard from 13 to 16 was pure dema
gogy; the framers of the hill in the house
wbo raised the cry of "free sugar for the
consumer as well as the refiner," had
themselves no idea that No. 16 raw su
gars would go into direct consumption.
Samples of the raw and refined, showing
tbe relative price of each, were exhibited
to tbe members of the ways and means
committee, and tbey were forced to admit
that there was nothing in their pretended
elaim of free sugar for the consumer.
But it furnished a cheap campaign cry
wtth which M deceive their constituent,
and, as they believed, make political cap
ital for themselves.
The senate committee, who investK
gated tbe matter very thoroughly and
carefully, saw the fallacy of tbe claim,
and also that the raising of the standard
of raw sugars, so far from benefitting the
consumer, will only open our markets to
the immense crop of raw beet sugars
(which can only be used for refining), dis
placing to the same extent the lower
grades of raw cane sugars, from which
the cheaper grades of refined used by the
masses of the people are made, thereby
N enhancing tbe cost of these grades, which
cannot be, made from beet sugars.
For this reason the senate conferre-a
persistently refused to yield the No. 13
line, but the bouse confeTrees were intim
idated by the threats of some of tbe
western delegates, who were chit fly in
terested in this campaign thunder and
wbo threatened to defeat the tariff bill
if No. 16 line was not maintained.
The protection on refined Bugar aboye
No. 10 is adequate as a manufacturing
protection, tbe only danger to the refin
ing interest being the export bounties to
Europe. It was, howeve, agTeed by tbe
representatives of both bouses of congress
that should the protection of the bill
-prove insufficient as against these boun.
ties, additional legislation in tbe shape of
bounty provision will be readily adopted
to protect the American industry against
With free raw sugars the facilities of
refiners within tbe truBt will enable them
to do in enormous business at a email
margin of profit, will jlsld a very large
revenue and make the business amply re
munerative and successful.
Mr. W. T. Baker, president of the Chi
cago board of trade, has this to say con
cerning the bill:
I am tired of bearing the tariff discussed
as an economic question. It Is a moral
one, and is nothing more than downright
Tbe first effect of the McEinley bill
will be to induce an abnormal and un
healthy speculation In all commodit'es,
the prices of which will to enhanced by
tbe tariff. Tbat will extend to tbe con
sumers, who will doubtless buy goods
faster than they require them in order to
avoid the advanced cost tbat is certain
sooner or later to follow the enactment.
Tbe result will, I think, be more or less
prostration in business until the exces
sive stocks are consumed, and tbe prices
have advanced to the level intended by
tbe McK nley bill.
Tbe law is certainly a hardship to all
consumers and will increase profits to
manufacturers until the markets of this
country become overstocked with manu
factured goods. The evil effects of this
bill will be felt most by the laboring man

necessary in order to make the seed swell
and so to keep up the supply of water lilies

the beetles, it will tie pretty sure to secure
a greater number of these micon3cious al
lies, and therefore to succeed Itetter. ont

the scentless lilies.
In some such way. I take it, the go ahead

one the hall was fairly set roll in i;, those
lilies in each jrem-ratiou wouhl le tni-ist

your American kind art now all exquisite

Kuropean type has stuck to the original
ancestral pattern and has got no perfuaie
at all of any sort.
Something of the Kamekind.no doubt,
also accounts for the prevalent pinkine?
of the American water lily; only here the
selective action of the insects has pine but
a very little way, and in some of your pondi
the lilies are still every bit as pale anil

the lili.-s are quite distinctly pinkish, and
at Barnstable, Mass , they are rosy red,
and sometimes even almost crimson. Here
I snppose we catch the in-tarts actually at
work; their preference for the pretty pink
flowers over the pale white ones has only
just beifun to affect the color in some
places, tint riot in all.
As time oes on I have very little doubt
the beetles will more Rnd more prefer the
pink, until at last the white are left en
tirely unvisited, and. never setting their
seed, must in the end die out altogether.
If I should vi-it America aain in another
couple of thousand years or so I shall con

Editor of the A Hues :
Milan, Oct. I I. In tbe Rock Mud
Union of Sept. 3d is a let'er written by a
party, signed "A Democrat." I consider
:t my duty to answer, as I was with M-.
Uobinson the second time be esTed upen
Mr. Crawford in regard to the matter t f
bis contributing to the needy of South
Dakota. As was stated in Mr. Robinson s
letter. Mr. Crawford did not come to Taj -lor
Ridge, as Mr. Robinson undersloo 1
him to say he would do, on Monday. We
proceeded to Mr. Crawford's resident,
and found bim engaged in some wor
about the barn. The following convei
sation took place after passing the usual
time of day. Mr. Robinson said:
Well. Mr Crawford, you did not gel
up to tbe Ridge today, as you said you
"I never said I would be at the Ridse, to
day." Mr. Crawford replied "I told yot
if I concluded to contribute anything, 1
would be there."
Bui he did not go there. Now whai
more conclusive evidence does any sen
sible man need than the words of bis ow n
mouth tbat "if he concluded to eive. be
would be at the Ridge to give it," and as
he did not offer to give anj thine there,
Mr. Robinson considered that he was
not a libi rVi-bearted man. Now as to
bis sending his son to the Ridge with
$ 10 to give Mr. Robinson, he did not
give it. Oh. yes, "we are aware of the
fact that he didn't "
As to Mr. Robinson making "imperti
nent remarks to his son," it's possible
be did do so, but I don't think that
be said anything more than any other
man would have said under tbe lrcnm
stances, lor he knew that Mr Crawford
was abundantly all to give
if be would, and almost every man around
him being poor men, and all gave some
thing, either grain or money.
I will draw a contrast of the two men.
Mr. Hobinson is editor and proprietor of
a lively and progressive paper ctl'ed
the Seneca Sun. When the call came for
volunteers to solicit aid, feed and seed
for the needy ones of South Dakota, that
they m ebt be able to maintain their
homes and provide for their families, Mr.
Robinson left his business in the hands of
an assistant, and spent three weeks in
Iowa and Illinois soliciting for those peo
pie. He paid his own railroad fare . and
personal .ei penses.
