THE AEfiHS. i
prisht O rlook of the Shoddy Has ness.
hTuxlJy 2"e" Like McKinley's Tariff.
The boura of United States generil ap
praisers has recently rendered a dec ision
Staining tho protest of F. Mahlh roser
& Co. ntrainst the rate of duty charged
,y tie collector of customs at Cleveland,
0-. nPn ;i shipment of "wool wiwte,"
made under tho old law.
The firm here named is the lrrgest
firm f shoildy m-inufacturera in the
country- Nearly a year ago a description
f the compi:ny'a plant at Cleveland ap
,v.;irpl in 'f ' American Wool Rep irter,
antl in tai :-.vi iele th? establishment was
r.fcrrc'l t. as "fie ni.-ist extensive shoddy
,,;f,ls in t1:i-- or.ntry. and probably the
hrsjrst in t:i v.-orll."
Th?se za'.lU vera farther de-rib ? 1 by
thccTr-.-r.-:id?r.t of Tue Ueporrer as fol-
Tiit prtMinciion or lavse lams u very
liW- au-1 t;inee tho new xulditioi has
i.i.vn in "p 'ration 20,000 pounds rT day
). ;s i; t urned out, yielding an annual
j.r, l n-t of -'.bout 5,000,000 p4nnds. Their
last vav roll shows over 4S0 hands em-
pl.iv.-.l: their help are mostly Bohemians,
They have 3U0 sorters to keep the mate
rial ready f r the machinery. This plant
w;u first established in 1871.
The slKxluy business has gro to to
look upon itself as one of the legitimate
industries of the country, eu title 1 to a
voice in shaping legislation andimluenc
ins; elections. Last summer the shoddy
men were clamorous for the passage of
tbe Mt-Kinley bill, with its high duties
n wot 1 and woolen goods, and in tho
l;i4 presidential electiou they ranged
themselves upon the side of protection
and aided in the agitation to defeat the
Mills 1.111, which they said was a free
trade measure to them.
Now that the McKiidey law is i a force
it is more difficult than ever far our
manufacturers to get the grades of for
eign wools suitable for mixing with
the natural article, and the hopes and
prospects of the shoddy men are corre
spondingly brightened. A recent num
ber of a prominent protectionist trade
paper. The Commercial Bulletin of Bos
ton, prints the following in its market
'The shoddy and extract manufact
urers and dealers are sanguine of a very
good year's business for 1891. Last year
was a very prosperous one, and as the
consumption of clothing increa;ses the
shoddy and extract trade improves.
Better machinery and more thorough
knowledge of the art of woolen manu
facturing enables the greater use t f these
tjoods, insuring for them a larger market
than ever before. Several mills find it
necessary to increase their plant capacity
to fill their orders."
We become wearers of shoddy in pro
portion as the tariff ehuts our woolen
manufacturers out of the wool markets
of the world. Tho tariff cost of foreign
wool also prevents our woolen industry
from having constant and profitable em
ployment, as well as from developing
along with the growth of the country.
In no department of manufacturing have
there been so many failures ai d shut
downs as in the woolen industry. The
same issue of The American "WxA Re
porter, already quoted, contained the
'Careful estimates place a number of
idle woolen looms as high as GO per cent.
of the whole number. These figures
seem excessive at first glance, bat care
ful consideration of the woolen s: tuation
will remove all doubt as to their correct
ness. The present heavy weight season
has been meager in results, and some
weeks since, in The "Wool Reporter's Re- j
view of the Aew York goods market, it
was stated that the business for the pres
ent season would be from one-t hird to
one-half of that accomplished in .in aver age
season. It is a dreary subjec t to con
template." In tue pursuit of the eo-vi ttinir- f
tilif- world we anticipate too nrict. wt
