Women a JonrnalUta.
A Xew York editor speaks thus encour
agingly to womeu: Ia a great many news
paper offices there is a prejudice aifninst
women. Why this is so I do not know. I
Lave employed t hem f or a n umber of years,
and have al way found them to be pttius

cases 1 have found that women do certain
kinds of newspaper work more satisfacto
rily than men can, and vice versa.
One of the best Washington correspond

keenly alive to all the exigencies of daily
newspaper work, was quick oj wit, a splen

invaluable aid to me.

Another New Explosive.
A French scientist is said to hare discov
ered a new explosive. It is a condensed
liquefied gas, 800 drops of which are con
fined in a small steel chamber under the
rille larrel. The pulling of the trigger re
lenses one drop, which volatilizes instantly
upon contact with the air aud drives the
bullet with extraordinary velocity. There
is no noise orsmoke accompanying the dis
charge, and altogether the new discovery
promises to make u revolution in modern
methods. New York Telegram.

Faeta About tie Tariff Which All

Mr. A. M. Warner, of New York, 'bo
is the bead of tbe firm of A. M.
Warner & Co., manufacturers and im
porters, ip speaking of the bill gener
Before expressing an opinion of the
new tariff it seems to me fitting that I
siould say that I was born and bred a
republican all my life. What will bi tbe
effects of the new tariff on the business
of New York CitvT Their name is le
gion, and their result will be a contint.ed
series of loss, damage and disaster. I
predict that within one year more than
1 100.000.01 K) of capital will be thrown
out of iu present occupation. It will be
compelled to remain idle or to force i s
elf into lines of investment already over
crowded and crying for relief from tie
effect of competition and ovemroductit n
It will amount to a practical revolution
of present commercial affairs, and a great
loss will occur hefjre the compulsory ad
justment to the new conditions cm ie
effected. With tbe retirement of car i"
tai and the deciine of con meree larre
numbers of emiloyes will be throwo out
ot employment, and upon them the very
first effects of the di water will fall.
Will the importers be the only ones to
suffer? Certainly not. The importers
are only the first link in tbe universal
chain by which we all depend on each
other. It is more nearly trae in thii
case than in any other that "an injury t
one is tbe concern of all." Ia fact." the
first effect to the importers wiil be t
bring an extraordinary profit on the
enormous amount of goods on hand.. Tba
republican pwty hss sitrned the impor
tera" death warrant, but they will dio
hard, myself among tbe rest.
Let me expKin what I mean. Th'.
board of fire underwriters a fuily com
petent authority have estimated lha"
there is usually stored within the smal
area of twenty blocks occupied by tht
dry goods trade elone mcrcbtnrti?e to tht
valut of more 'hanfie hundred million
dollars. Today it is ssfe to say ibe
amount is nearer cven hundred mi lions,
loi-luding all othir lines of business in
all other parts ot the city, the amount of
goods on hand will perhaps exceed two
thousand millions. In othir cities Bos
ton. Philadelphia. Cincinnati, Chicago.
St., Louis the situation is prsctica ly tbe
same, and if we put the remainder of the
I'nited 8tlcs at'sinst New York aione,
tlie grand total of stoc on hand will ap
proximate five thousand millions.
On this entire amount there his been an
immediate advance in nrHe. In mv own
stock this advance varies from 50 jx-r
cent . 40. 3 ). down to 10 ,r cent, and
lower. I am of the opinion th"l in the
eud an advance of 15 per ceut on the
whole wilt be a low estimate. On tbe
b!is of this calculation there will le
taken from the consumer and trans
ferred directly to the pockets of the
holders of goods upward of $H).0iH) INK).
This amount is tq-ii) to the official esti
mate of the revenue from tariff tajrs for
the next five jeara.
And even this leaves out of account
the rise in the price of domestic goods to
be produced aithin tbe year. Of course
there must be such a rise or protection
does not protect, and I wiil say that this
rise has already begun and in some in
stances it has reached as high as 20 per
cent. So much for some of the

On this the duty wiil be'rai ed frrnj 50

It is for the private and personal benefit
of a big Philadelphia maker, a friend of
the pious Wauamaker and a pet of Boss

fcr you are my raw material. Here is
one. It is wooi-felt. This quality costs
in wurtemuerg about 40 cents per yard,
and tbe rate of duty has for many years
oeen about uu per cent. This rate h
been amply sufficient to create, foster and
prokct one of those fondly cnerinhed free
American arrangements wh.cji Senator
Sherman always opposes with bis voice
but invariably sustains with his vote

word for it that this felt combine is
the most rapacious and piratical combine

mis article ana for the benefit of this
combine the rate has been raised from
110 pr cent to 150 per cent, and I may
tell jou further that Senator Sherman

trusts and then voted for this measure
