When tbe A rocs recently gave some
statements regarding the local rise in
prices under the McKinley bill its infor
mation was chit fly received from repub
licans. All are alike affected by it. The
idea intended to be conveyed that tbe
democrats are raising a false cry as to tbe
rise in prices thotld be loo silly, too con
temptible for serious consideration.
'However, the firm of K:;nn & Iluck
itaedt. of this city, has just received a
c'rcolar from O. V. Richardson & Co ,
Chicago, carpet dealers, and this
circular says that on and after tbe 27lh of
this month carpets generally will go up in
price. The rise will be from 4 to 12 per

contains a mirror, or good that contain
woolen-asialerial, innbsir or kindred fas
brics will go up in price from that date.

For my part, beine at the head of a
company that handles lareely 0f tj,e nH,
ctaniral products of our iuntrv. I feel
that Messrs. McKinley & Co. would have
served their country better if they had let
the goose lay her esps in undisturbed
quiet, unhindered by the straddle of pro
tection. I have read somewhere of a strong man
being protected to death by tbe dietary
prescriptions of bis physicians. I. there-
iore, conclude that well enough should
have been let alone.
The McKinley law will have these ef.
facts In lRical or ler: The manufacturer
puts up prices because be has to pay
more for his carpet wools; the whole
saler puts up prices because be has to
pay more to the manufacturer; tbe re
tailer puts up prices because be has to
pay mora to the wholesaler; the con
sumers do not buy as much on account of
increased prices; the consumption being
less, the manufacturer produces leas, and
producing less be requires fewer work
men . Tbe direct result are loss of trade
to the mannfacturers and dealers, lout of
work by carpet workers, and higher
prices for goods. Tbat is how the Mc
Kinley Ux he'ps us all around.

A CREDIT TO THE ROAD.

For some month, put the machinist,
at the general .hop. of the R. I. & P.
road at Peoria have been putting in their
spare moments between times building a
locomotive. Now it 1. completed and
the Tran$eript terms it a great achieve
ment. Master Mechanic Elder, who has
been superintending the construction of
tbe engine, .ay. that it i. as cheap an en
gine as the road could buy any place.
The Tramcripi describes tbe trial trip of
the home made machine:
Tbe engine which was ran out from the
round house on it. trial trip yesterday is
known a. R. I. & P. engine 16. It i. not
an extremely large machine, but it U very
heavy for it. siie. As the engine was
designed strictly for the company's use,
no pain, or material were spared, and
everything about it i. designed for service
and consequently very heavy. Tbe ens
Bine when loaded with water and coal was
weighed yesterday moraine, and balanced
tbe beam at seventy -two ton. Tbe larg
est engine, used are what are commonly
called "hog" or mogul engines, and they
only weigh about eight tons more than
the new engine.
Right after dinner yesterday fire was
placed in the grates, and the engineer
commenced to Eel up .team. The guage
Bhowed a pressure of 140 pounds. Tbe
engine was then run out upon the tnrn
ttble and backed on to a side-track. At
2:80 o'clock Mr. Elder received running
orders, which were as f ullows:
Run wild to Alta; avoid regular trains.
Upon receipt of this dispatch Master
Mecnanic Elder. Building Ging Foreman
Fittger. Engineer Elberson, Fireman
Sherwood and a Tranicriiit reporter
clambered into the cab . Tbe engine
was backed on to tbe main track and the
switch thrown, when "Sixteen," the first
engine ever built in Peoria from t) e
ground up. started on her trial trip with
the master mechanic's hand on the lever.
The grade, just out of tbe city is quite
steep, long and winding, and one stop
was made on tbe grade to eee
if any bearings were becoming
heated. Another stop ti made at
Kellar Station, and every part thorough
ly oiled. From here tbe crew steamed
to Alta and side-tracked. Tbe air
brakes bad not worked perfectly on tbe
way out and the pump was packed at
Alls. The tender gave more annoyance
tban the engine on tbe way out, but ev
erything wat properly adjusted Two
trains were waited for at Alia, tbe Niter
of which ctrried a white fUg into P. ori.
to denote tbat engine 16 was following.
ine run to I'eona was matte without a
stop, and for a pait of the way, much
higher speid was attained than is custom
ary with a new engine, but ,the machine
worked so perfectly going out that ber
builders wanted to see ber gs, and when
the throttle was pulled she promp
tly responded. Every burr, bear
lug and boll was new

until yesterday, but every joint was
The trip waa highly satisfactory, and
the master mechanic and foreman were
much elated. The enziie rau as per

she appeared on tbe track yesterday, tbe

but plain and devoid of ornament, its
beauty lying in the grace of lis lines and
contour, which are far more beautiful to
mechanics tban any gettgaws that could
be added. . It is tbe intention of tbe com'
pany to put the engine into active service
on the road, and service will be the real
test of its merits.

a paper devoted to the dry good. Wade
has this to say about the advance ia tlx
price of dry goods under the operation oT
the McKinley bill: ,
Retailers within a few days have mark
ed up good, from 5 to 10 per cent. To
give a few examples. . Surah and faille
Francaise have advanced from 60, 75, f 5
cents io 65. 80. 89 cents and fl. The
1-25 and tl.50 qualities are $1 85 and
$1.60, or poorer quality is marked up to
to tbe former price, of the better sorts.
Cashmere and e rge at 1 were 93 cents
a month ago. Striped cheviot, of 50 to
80 cents are today 54 cents to $1 La
dies' f loth se ling forfl.35 was tl.25 last
week, yet tbe order for this was
placed four months ago. Linen
Rood, such as sheeting, pillow casing,
towels, table covers and napkins, have ad
vanced in tbe last month from 5 to 10 per
cent. Towels that are now $3 a dozen
were 3.5 last month, yet these are
standard goods that are often ordered a
year ahead of delivery, and certainly are
not influenced by tbe prices of today.
Buttons and dress trimmings are about 10
per cent higher, especially crochet and
pearl buttons. Hosiery h.s advanced in
the same ratios . Fifty cents are now
asked for 47 cent stockings and 73 cents
for the 69 cent quality.
This is not democratic talk for political
capital, but is the statement of a trade
paper about a matter of vital interest to
