In order to urderstacd the cativ-s-which
probably have maile the Gaiza re
bellion prs-ible it is necessary to glance,
as the Chicago News has done, at wagi s
and prices of the commonest articles ir
Mexico. These bear an abnormal n l i
tion to each other, the one being very
low and the oilier very high.
Field labor averages 36 cents.a dty.
taking the whole federation of 28 states
into account. The rate is highest in So
nora, where i." cent- is raid, and lowest
in Aguas, Calientt end Nueva Leon,
where it fal - to 18i cents.
In striking contrast with these figures
are those which represent the prices f
staple commodities in the market - of the
City of Mexico. B-tcon, for example, is
50 cents a pound, coal is 0 a ton, corn
is $1 20 a bushel, flour is $3 for 100
pounds, cotton prints are lit?, cents a
yard, bogs are 9 cents a pound gross;
sugar is 21 cents, wheat St. SO a bushel
and iron ?"2 a ton, or $13
more than in the United States. All
other commodities are correspondingly
dear, the fact being due in part to the ex
cessive transportation charges of the rail
ways, but mainiy to the barbaric local
duties, the octroi tax. levied upon all
products coming into Mexican cities
Thtse. duties, besides being extremely
burdensome and discouraging to trade,
are increasing the enst of commodities
and therefore diminishing their consump
tion. Adding the element f immoral
ity to that of pestiferous interference
with individual enterprise, it really is no
wonder that Mexico lags behind in the
march of civilization and that popular
risings disturb the social fabric.
Happily, however, as pointed out by
Minister Romero, who is a warm friend
of the United States acd an enlightened
champion of reciprocal trade relations
between this country and his own, there
is a hopeful prospect of the collapse of
the obnoxious legislation which hamper
Mexican internal commerce. This will
come about through the beneficent work
of tne treaty of 1SH3, which contains a
provision whereby complete immunity
from all local, state and municipal taxes
was granted to merchanhise from this
country Imported into Mexico, giving it
the same freedom as it enjoys at borne.
"Ia agreeing to the above clause," says
Minister Romero, "my object was not
only to promote trade between the two
countries but also to undtrmtne the pres
ent obnoxious legislation at home. The
moment foreign merchandise was exemps
ted from local duties domestic merchan

plight as to imperatively demard a

WHY THE MANUFACTURERS DEMAND
ED HIGHER DUTIES ON TIN PLATE.
Were Tin I'late Free It Would Kg Tsed
for Roofing and Other Building Pur
poses Wherti Galvanized or Other Sheet
Iron or M.-el Is Now I'sed.
A large pi rt of the tinned plate im
ported into the United States during the
past ten j-a-s has been what are known
as terne or r xjfiti;; plates, made by coat
ing sheet ire n or steel with a mixture of
tin and lead lead be-in the chief com
ponent part. These plates have been
vised almost exclusively for roofing.
Xone of tb se platens is made in this
country, noi do those iron manufactur
ers who, by a few slight additions to
their mills in the shape of extra rollers
and tinning stocks, could readily pro
duce them intend to do s". The rea
son for this inactivity on their part is
that they are now engaged in the pro
duction of galvanized sheet iron and
steel, which they sell in competition
with import d tenie plates, and which
also are usee! for routing purjioses. 13
tween terne plat and galvanized iron
there is therefore intense competition.
The gulyi.nized iron manufacturers
have long had a strong combination to
regulate production and control prices.
The only difficulty which they have lia-1
to contend with during the past ton
years has b en the constantly falling
prices of terne plates. This cheapening
ef terne pla'e has frrently increasiM its
use for rodfit g. and by so doing lias de
creased the eeiuatid for galvanized iron.
To keep their prodnet n the market
the coiiibiiiatiun has ltn forct'd to re
duce its prie s with every reduction in
the price of terne plates. The problem
which has perplexed the combination
has long lieen what means could be de
vised to dee r -ase the use ef terue plate-.s.
When the Mills bill, which put terue
plates on th- free list, was being dis
cussed, the galvanized iron manufac
turers organized an annex to their com
bination whi h they railed the Ameri
can Tinned I'late association, the sec
retaryship of which was given to A. ( '.
Cronemeyer, a large manufacturer of
galvanised iron. This annex appealed
to tlie seriate finance committee and in
duced it t'j ii crease the duty em terne
plate to an p.verago of 2 2-10 cents p. r
pound in t'u substitute bill which the
committee v as preparing. This com
mittee, how -ver. gave uwav the -ject
of tiie increased ,tiTy when it
issued its rcjH.rt. prepared by Senators
Aidrich and Allison, by declaring that
the free ;; ImisMon of iron or ste, 1
sheets of all thickness coated with tin or
lead would cause a substitution of im
Irted tin ph tes or sheefs in most ea-e-,
for rooting and other building iiiii-ikisos,
and for dom. ti- uses where galvanized
or either slice- iron or steel is now used."
Mr. Crone never and his associates
composing the g alvanized iron combina
tion wanted it. to appear that they in
tended to make tin and terne plate.
Their real object, however, was to make
temp plate c st so much that builders
would buy more of their high priced
(compared with low dntied terne plate)
galvanized ir jii.
They were successful last year, and
McKinley, hi. their request, increased
the duty on ti rue plate to 3 2-lu cents ,H-r
pound. 'Win t has been the result'
In the first place, the price of terne
plate lias Im-cii increased by the amount
of the alleg d duty; in the second, the
galvanized iron oombmatioii has not
taken any ht-jis to produce it in this
country, bur, in the words of The Iron
Age, "so far as we can learn, there are not
many sheet manufacturers to be added
to the list of tinned plate makers. The
bnsinessappe irs to be remanded by quite
general consent to those who will make
a specialty o'.' it. The sheet mills aie
evidently net inclined to make the
tinned plate nanufactufe an appendage
of their business," thus showing e learly
the object wt ich they bad in advix-ating
increased dunes on tinned plate-.
And now the pilvanized iron makers
have made another move. Hard warts
for Dec. 23,.H!M. has an article entitled
"Tin riato and f-ialvanized Iron Mak
ers," ami says: "Two important meet
ings were held in Pittsburg recently,
when the lx ard of directors of the
American Til I'late association held a
session, as did also the board of directors
of the Galvanized Iron association. Tim
two meetings were held separate-ly, nd
afterward the directors of both concerns
held a joint ( iscussion. After
the meeting a Ijoume'il tin? directors of
each concern entered into au arrange
ment that will finally lead to the federa
tion of the association. None of the
directors won id make public- the terms
of the agTeen ent. but said that satisfac
tory relations had liee-ii agreed ujion."
The galvanized iron combination, of
which the tin plate association is only
an annex, as slieiwn 'above, did make
public a part of the results agreed' upon
by making the following increases in tli
prices of galvanized iron:

WOOU .ND THE TARIFF IN 1891.
A Com ia Which the Tariff Certainly
Dura Not Help the Producer.
When the McKinley tariff, which
increased the duties on wool, went into
effect a year ago. it was preelicteel by
McKinley and his associates, who mad
the bill, tliat it would boom the wool in
dustry, raise the price of domestic wool
and decrease the importation of foreign
The American Wool Reporter's annual
review of the wool market for the past
year shows how complete has been the
failure of the McKinley tariff totlo what
was expected of it. "The course of the
wool market," says The Reporter, "dur
ing the past year has been a great dis
appointment to the trade ns well as the
wool growers. So far as the actual
volume of business in primary markets
is concerned there is no very radical dif
ference to be noted, taking the year as a
whole, the aggregate of sales, as will be
seen from our reports, elsewhere, being
not far from those of the previous year."
The receipts of wool at Boston, the
principal market of the United States,
during 1SD1, show an increase over lSi-0
of 9)' per cent, of domestic and 37.4 pe r
cent, of foreign wool, while the total
sales during the year aggregate only
1,331.230 pounds more than in iyjH. At
the same time the stocks on hand at the
close of this year, as compared with
1S90, are as follows:
Domestic S.K74.4: :.:?.1.4.M
Foreign J,'.tj'J.4iO 4,&u,aiU
This, taken in connection with the re
ceipts anil total sales for the year, shows
clearly that while there lias been a larger
increase in the consumption ot foreign
wool, it has ljeen at the expense of that
of domestic growth. What, in view of
this, becomes of the claim made by the
high tariff advocates that the decrease
in the importation of goods during the
year meant a larger consumption of do
Concerning prices, The Reporter con
tinues: "In the matter of prices realized the
trend of values has been almost steadily
toward lower figures when there has
been any movement. The year hasleen
characterized by long periods of depres
sion, and afte r each iM.'riod of weakness
there lias not been one rally calculated
to lift values upon a higher plane. In
spiit? of the increased duties upon for
eign wool. iuiKrtations of the latter
show a divided increase, as those who
have ljeen at all familiar with our
market rebuts very well know. The
strengthening influence, therefore, that
was to come from anticipated reduced
importations has been characterized by
"The result is that the markets at the
seaboi.rd and in the interior close the
year at practically the lowest ioint of
the yiar. and on an average with wool
about two e-ents per pound lower. Ohio
and Pennsylvania fleeces have shown the
most marked depression, which is sig
nificant, certainly, in view of the fact
that the growers of those wk1s were th"
most clamorous for the increased d.ities
and that it was their interests more par
ticularly than others that the tariff was
designed to protect."
How general has been the fall in the
prices of wool grown in the states east
of the Mississippi is shown in the fallow
ing table, prepared by The Reporter.

Concerning the proliability of in
creased importations next year and the
outlook regarding prices. The Reporter
says: "We noted the probability in our
review of last year of increased importa
tions of foreign wool, and the outcome
of events has justified our predictions,
and today indications point to a still
further use of Australian and other for
eign woels than we have seen during
ltM. Many houses which never han
dled Australian wool before have done
so during the past few months, and
others are preparing to do so.
' Increased importations and sal;-s cf
Australian wools, in the face of higher
duties on t he orn? hand and increasing
stocks of domestic wools at lower prices
on the other, together form a striking
commentary on the inefficiency of a
higher tariff its a remedial measure for
the domestic grower. With li':e condi
tions prevailing in the year 1S!. there
is no reason for expecting a different
state of affairs than have prevailed dur
ing the past year."
The failures of the McKinley tariff oi
wool briefly summarized are:
1. To raise the prices of domestic wool.
2. To increase the demand for domes
tic wool by decreasing the imjiorts of
foreign wool. Why. in view tf this, does
it longer remain on our statute books?
L.-t IS Ventilate.
Diphtheria, catarrh, lung fever and
consumption are often attributed to
drafts of cold air. but they are more
frequently caused by stagnant hot air
deprived of its oxygen. If we "take
cold" in consequence of stepping out of
a room heated to a tropical temperatu-e
into an atmosphere below the freezing
point, the primary cause of the difficulty
is the overheated, sealed up room, not
the healthful, open air.
If we were more in the habit of wann
ing our blood in winter with brisk ex
ercise "under the canopy" and less in
clined to coddle ourselves in all but
heremetically scaled rooms warmed
with hot air furnaces we should be a
healthier peopb than we are. The winds
of heaven are hygiene. They should lie
permitted to circulate freely through
every dwelling at least once a day.
