Thk Union has again fallen into its
reprehensible habit of lying.
Burris ha got his dollar back, also his
job. He should be happy.
TnE Uoion says that E. B. McKown
admitted in a conversation with Posts
ma8ier WelU that he had been kd into
making the accusation against Mail Car
rier Burris by reason of his prejudice to
the colored race, and that if Mr. Burris
had been a white man be would have in
vestigated the matter more fully before
making Hie charge. As Mr. McKown is
a member of the g. o. p. which poses as
the specinl friend of the colored man,
this is a refreshing admission. If this in
cident had occurred somewhere in the
south watt admirable material it would
have made for a "southern outrage" arti

A Boston letter to a trade journal con
tains the following:
"Important changes have been made
in the manufacture of dress goods at the
Arlingt jn mills. They have adopted 'he
method of the Providence (R. I.) vorsted
mills in preparing their raw material
Instead of using foreign wool only, as in
past years, they have begun the new
season by using a combination of Aus
tralian, domestic fleece and territory
wools. The Fletcher mills at Provi
dence have made a great success in mak
ing dress goods and worsteds under this
plan, and the Arlington will no donbt
do the same. As a consequence the lat
ter mill has been a heavy buyer of fleece
and territory wools since the beginning
of the year, and ha3 been the chief factor
in reducing the stock of territories in
this market. This combination of three
kinds of wool gives a top finish that
makes a good selling grade for the pres
The writer of this is not thinking of
the tariff at all, but he unconsciously
makes a telling argument for free wool.
The foreign wools are needed for mixing
with American wool.
Bags for Americana.
How our high tariff on wool operates
toward forcing us to wear Europe's rags,
old clothes and hair may be seen from a
recent English letter in The American
Wool Reporter. The writer, in giving
the exports' from London to American
cities for the first week in February,
notes that the shipments to Boston were
290,000 pounds of wool and 320 tons (716,
800 pounds) of rags, and that 1,000 bales
of rags were in transit. To Philadel
phia there were no exports "except 130
bales of cow hair in transit" To Balti
more there were 24 tons (53,760 pounds)
of rags. From Liverpool to Philadel
phia 134 bales of wool, 121 bales of goat
hair and 116 bales of cow hair were ex
ported. If we had free wool there would be
less occasion to buy Europe's rags to
make shoddy clothes for so-called "free

One Man's Method of Economy.
"So you think it funny that I carry a
cane down town with me every day when
I ro to business, do you?" said a yonng
lawyer the other day to a friend who had
made an a. 1 verse criticism on the subject,
claiming that clients might bo prejudiced
against a liwyer who habitually carried a
cane, for fear that he might not be of a
sufficiently serious or studious turn of
miEcl, as there was something about a stick
that indicated the stripling or the dude.
"Sotr.e r ien may carry a cane because
they 1 hink it is the proper thing," contin
ued the yonng student of Blackstone, "but
I am infli.euced in the practice purely by
motives of economy. I graduated from
college fiv.j years ago, and I haven't car
ried a stick since my freshman year. Still,
as I am t ot such a fool as not to know

"As a matter of fact I found 1 was losing
about twelve umbrellas a year simply be
cause not t arryinga cane. I never thought
of my umbrella unless it. was actually
raining wl en I pot outside quick enough
to return in time to get my umbrella be
fore some i:ue else grabbed it. One day I
lost lny own umbrella and my wife's as
well. They cost flo between them. Since
then I Lavt; carried a cane on pleasant days
and I never lose an umbrella. It's a great
economy.'" Xew York Herald.

PROBING A TARIFF TRU3T.
The Sagar Trust Under Investigation Ita
Great Tariff ProQts.
The sugar trust has been undergoing
investigation by a committee of the New
York legislature. In this investigation
some evidence was brought out which
illustrates the stock watering operations
of the trust.
During this investigation a Mr. John
Moller, of Brooklyn, was examined. He
testified that he was a stockholder of the
Baltimore Sugar Refining company, that
the capital of this concern was $210,000,
and that the trust gave the stockholders
$1,050,000 in certificates when this con
cern was absorbed. Thia was in October,
1887. The trust soon after put np the
price of sugar and closed np the refinery
in Baltimore. F. O. Matthiessen, of the
F. O. Matthiessen & Wiechers refinery,
said that his company was capitalized at
$1,600,000. When it went into the trust
$3,633,000 of certificates were given for
the $1,600,000. Clans Doscher, of the
Brooklyn Refining company, testified
that the amonnt of sugar trust certifi
cates given the Brooklyn Refining com
pany for its $300,000 of capital stock and
a bonded indebtedness of $1,200,000 was
The capital stock of the trust as thus
watered is $30,000,000, but the actual
value of the properties of the concerns
entering the trust was $15,000,000.
When, therefore, it is stated by Willet
& Gray, the highest authority on mat
ters pertaining to the sugar trade, that
the profits of the trust have been $10,
000,000 per annum the apparent profits
were equal to 20 percent., but the actual
profits were not less than 64 per cent,
The sugar trust is one of the best
known of our many tariff trusts that the
people have been taxing themselves to
make rich. It has conducted its busi
ness with great secrecy. During the
investigation just mentioned the presi
dent and the treasurer of the trust could
not be found. The latter, it was an
nounced by the lawyers of the trust, had
gone to New Orleans "on business." On
a previous occasion when the trust was
to be investigated the treasurer disap
peared in the same way "on business."
The people are now to have what is
called free sugar, but they have not yet
escaped from the power of the trust.
The McKinley law leaves a duty of fifty
cents per 100 pounds on refined sugar.
Even strong protectionist papers pro
tested at the time when the tariff bill
was under discussion that there was no
need for a duty on refined sugar. The
New York Tribune said, "No good rea
son whatever can be given for retaining
any duty whatever on refined sugar if
unrefined is admitted free." The New
York Press, another high tariff organ,
said, "The president of the sugar trust
once said that they could refine cheaper
than the English could anyhow, and
that they did not need any duty at all
on refined if they got raw 6ugar free."
McKinley passed his tariff bill through
the house with a duty of 40 cents per 100
pounds on refined sugar; the senate raised
this to 60 cents. In the conference com
mittee of the senate and house there was
a protracted fight over this duty. Here
is one little episode in that fight as re
ported at the time by the Washington
correspondent of The New York Tribune:
"Mr. Searles, of the sugar trust, and
other well known operators established
themselves in the senate wing of the
Capitol, and Senator Quay and other
friends of the higher rates kept up con
stant communications with the confer
rees on the subject of restoring the duties
down to No. 13."
The duty was fixed at 50 cents a 100;
and this Mr. Searles, the treasurer of the
trust, said this duty would enable the
refiners to do "an enormous business."
