Rather a Crisp morning.
It is realy too bad the republicans are
not satisfied with the democratic nominee
Cnisr the name is not quite as sug
gestive of sprightiiness as Springer, but
it has the right ring, nevertheless.
The nomination of lion. C. F. Crisp,
of Georgia, as the democratic candidate
for speaker of the house of represeuta
tives of the 531 coneress was accom
plished on the S'Jth ballot last night, the
final and decisive vote giving him 119,
Mills 105, Sptinger 4, Stevens 1. Mr.
Springer and Congressmen Durburrow
and Stewart, of this state, went to the
Georgian on the last ballot, while the re
maitider of the Illinois delegation voted
The selection of Mr. Crit-p as the demo
cratic leader in the lower bouse of con
gress, will tntet with as general sj proba
tion from the democracy of the
union as would have that of any
cf the other candidates. The west
and northwest would have preferred
either Springer or Mills, principally for
their more pronounced tariff views, but
Mr. Crisp's remaiks uron being chosen
to the speakership, make him just as
acceptable to tariff reformers as his re
cent competitors. He said, "My election
as speaker will mean no steps backward
in tariff reform." This is an unequivocal
pledge that he is thoroughly in line wiih
his party on this vital question, and
stamps as false the assertion made prior
and during the speakership Question that
be leaned strongly towards the protective,
The Afters is glad that the cry raistd
in certsin quarters that Crisp being a
southern man should not be allowed to
wield the t peaker's gavel, was of no
avail. The dcmccratic party Is not di
vided in the matter of sectional lines.and
it is more than possible that Mr. Crisp's
election will convince the calamity shriek
era of the republican party that the south
is now as much interested in the proper
macsgcrnect of govtrrment ( fli-es as the
north, acd his election will in time con
vince sober minded people that it is a
benefit to f.e psr y.
A New Window Glaaa Trust Projected.
The manufacturers of window glass
are again perfecting plans for a trnt.
It will be recalled that they were com
pleting a combination a year ago last
spring, while Mr. McKinley was mak
ing bis tariff bill, and that the managers
of that combination were in session at
Chicago when Mr. McKinley, at their
suggestion, caused to be inserted in the
bill the curious proviso designed to pre
vent the importation of window glass in
boxes containing more than fifty square
feet. That combination was dissolved
owing to the hostile attitude of two or
three manufacturers upon whose adhe
sion the makers of the organization had
Some of onr high tariff contemporaries
asserted that it was scared ont of exist
ence by the antitrust law. Concerning
the new movement The-Iron Age says,
"The idea is to operate all the plants in
the combination through one manage
ment; to control prices, wages and prod
uct, and to secure economy in the pur
chase of materials and the sale of goods."
The manufacturers tried to reduce wages
three months ago, but the workmen were
too powerful for them.
The Paint, Oil and Drug Review re
ports that three secret meetings of the
manufacturers have recently been held
and predicts that plans for the combina
tion will be completed within a few days.
The third meeting was held in Cincin
nati on the 10th inst., and we presume
that Senator Sherman would gladly have
improved the opportunity to rebuke
these trust makers if he had not been so
busily engaged in mending his senatorial
fences. New York Times.
Who Fays the Tariff Tax.
One of the foremost claims of the pro
tectionist is that the foreign shipper
pays the duties. If this is true, isn't it
strange that when famine threatens any
country, one of the first means of relief
thought of should be a diminution or re
moval of imjwrt duties on food stuff s?
Again, the report of the treasury de
partment for the fiscal year 1H90 shows
that 6,109 gallons of castor oil were im
ported, vulued at $,910. The duties
Now, if the foreign shipper paid the
'duty, is it not certain that he not ouly
made us a present of the oil, but gave
ns besides $2.C10 to get rid of it? In
1890 importers brought into the United
States tiC4,C03 gallons of spirits distilled
from grain, valued at f4r6,121, the duties
on which were $1,829,367. Who paid
these duties? If the importers, they lost
not only the liquor, but $373,216 besides.
There are, of course, extreme cases, but
the truth or fallacy of a proposition is
generally more forcibly shown by taking
extreme cases. Rural New Yorker.
