A IMurky Fight.
Scrcral days prior to the vote ol the
national house of representatives on the
motion to table the Bland silver bill, the
Boston Herald contained the following
editorial under the caption of "Sound
Currency Democrats in Congress," and
which is hizhly complimentary to our
member of the house, in that it shows
that whatever might be his attitude with
reference to the silver question, it was
not without due deliberation and decision
reached long before the house was to be
called upon to determine the fate of the
The country should not forget to note
that one of the most plucky and gallant
ngbts that nave ever been made upon any
subject in the congress of the United
States is new taking place against free
silver coinage, on the part of democratic
members of that bedy. Among thase
concerned in it may be particularlv men
tioned George Frederick Williams and
Sherman Hoar, of Massachusetts, Charles
Tracey, of New York, Isldor Raynor. of
Maryland, Michael D. ilarter, of Ohio,
and Benjamin T. Cable, of Illinois. They
are engaged in & highly aggressive cam
paign with this end in view. In fact, one
of the free coinage men is reported as sav
ing "We are not used to warfare like
this. W e have been before encoun
tered in a spirit which seems to antici
pate failure, but these men are working
as if they expecteS to succeed, and there
is fear that they will succeed, too." A
republican member declares that admira
tion of the courage with which this pow
erful influence for free silver is being met
by Mr. Williams is fairly extorted from
him, and declares it to be without a pre
cedent in Washington an airs. We be
lieve the prospect to be today that no free
silver coinage bill is to pass the house of
representatives, though when that body
met those who favored the measure were
confident that it would be put through by
a large majority. The situation furnishes
a splendid illustration of what rer
aistent, patriotic work will do. Tie
Hirald in the autumn canvass
Of 1890 urged the need of elec'x
ing democrats from this section who were
sound upon the currency, that they
might engage in such work, and achieve
the results that now bid fair to follow.
It has been fully justified in taking such
a course. Free silver coinage in tha
house is likely to be prevented by the
Totes and the action f this class ef rep
resentatives; nay, more, the cause of
Bound currency in the country is to be
immensely strengthened by it. The pres
ent Is the crucial time in this important
matter. Defeated in the present congress
we believe the country is safe against the
renewal of the attempt, especially under
the demoralization which will be wroaght
of Us strength in the democratic party.
We believe it will be defeated, and that
such an achievement will be due to the
efforts ef those indomitable workers
among the democrats.

THE TARIFF ON WOOL AND WOOLtNS
DEGRADES THE STANDARD.
Enormous Production of "Cheap and
Vasty" Goods Since the Wool Tariff
Was Est ibll shed An Increase of 2.187
Te Ccnu in Thirty Years.
Under ".die high tariffs on wool and
woolens si: ice 1860 the growth of the shod
dy industry has been phenomenal. Shod
dy is a comprehensive term, and in com
mon parlt.nce includes all the various
wool snbst itntes used in manufacturing,
except co-ton,' cow's hair, etc. There
are two cl;isses of shoddies; tho first is
made frorx. the waste pieces of woolen
goods left over in tho manufacture of
ready mtvle clothing, and the second
from old woolen rags collected from the
ash barrels and refuse heaps of our large
cities. Bot like other industries, the
shoddy inc nstry has grown to such an
extent that there have been added new
terms to describe the products which
formerly vent under the general name
of "shoddy." Chief among these are
"extracts," which are made from mixed
cotton and woolen goods by the applica
tion of an itcid which eats out the cotton,
leaving the woolen fibers intact though
much impaired. At the same time ex
tracts are i nbdivided into two classes
first, those made from waste pieces of
cloth not in use, just as new shoddies
are produced, and second, those made
from old nixed rags picked up from all
conceivable places. Still another term
is used to describe a certain class of
shoddies. This is mnngo, which applies
to the fibers produced from hard or su
perfine rajs by machinery specially
adapted for the purpose.
So great has been the improvement
in machinery used for working up shod
dies, mung and extracts that they are
now used in all classes of woolen goods,
and are so disguised as to be detected
with great lifficulty.
The grov-th of tho shtnldy industry
cannot bo I otter shown than by a com
parison of the census figures since 1800.

Though the growth of the woolen in
dustry as a whole, including: the shoddy
industry, h is been considerable since
1360, it has not been in proportion to
the growth of the shoddy industry. In
1860 the val io of the woolen goods pro
duced in the United States was $Go,5:t',
3C4. In J8P0, according to the last cen
sus, the vah.e of woolen goods was $:!:!3,-

of 415 per cr nr. The value of the shotl.lv
product in 131H) shows an increase of 84
per cent over that of 1880, but the wool
en industry ts a whole shows an increase
of only 26 p r cent in 1800 over the prod
uct of 1830.
Notliing v-ill show better the great
growth of t io shoddy industry and its
present exte :it than the figures from the
census of H'M). In the following table

products tho amount of wool used and

This great growth of the shoddy in
dustry fully bears out the declaration
made by tho shoddy manufacturers in
1883, when they protested against the
Mills bill, which put wool ou the free
list. In the circular which they is
sued they said: "Our industry would be
ruined (by free wool ) and we and those
dependent n;xn us would suffer. There
is only one way to avoid this loss to our
selves, and -hat is by the defeat of the
candidate of the free trade party, Gro
ver Cleveland. We have determined in
the coming lection to support the can
didates of the protection party, Harri
son and Morton. Their election we con
sider to be indispensable to the mainte
nance of our business."

WOOL PRICES HERE AND ABROAD.
Does a High Tariff on Wool Make Wool
Demand and supply regulate the prices
of wool, as of other products. But in
tho wool trade certain factors enter
more prominently than in the trade in
most other articles. The quality and
availability of wools are powerful fac
tors in determining demand, and there
fore prices. Similarly, changes in fash
ion by stimulating or decreasing demand
affect prices equally with changes in
supply. Thas, during the past year
some wools iave greatly fallen in price,
while the pri :e of others has been well
Each varie- y of wool produced has a
use for which it is better thau any
other wool grown. The price of
wool therefore does not depend upon
the relation between the general demand
and supply, but rather upon the relation
existing between the demand and sup
ply of each particular variety. The
general expression therefore that "wool
is up" or "do-'vn" carries with it no real
Various attempts have been made to
compare the i 'rices of certain wools in
this country t nd iu England for the pur
pose of detet mining the effect of the
tariff upon piicee, but usually without
satisfactory results, for these compari-
(sons have included varieties of wool en
tirely dissimilar. There are two varie
ties of wool which approach, ewch other
very closely in quality, use and condi
tion. In addition to this accurate rec
ords of their prices have been kept.
These are Ohio medium fleece washed
and washed Port Philip fleece. The
former is a standard variety in the
Pnited States , aud the latter in Eng
land. For these wools a comparison is
possible. The following table shows
the average yearly prices in gold in Bos
ton and London, respectively. London
quotations are those of Windeler & Co.,
and the American prices are taken from

Port Philip fleece has averaged higher
for thirteen years and lower for twelve
years than Ohio medium fleece. For the
twenty-five years ending in 1890 Ohio
medium has averaged 41.48 cents per
pound, and Port Philip floece41.08 cents
per pound, showing a difference in
favor of the former of .40 cents. If we
eliminate the prices for 1371 and 1972,
when speculation was rampant in this
country and wools were contracted for
on the sheep's back at from 63 to 70
cents per pound, we arrive at the fol
lowing averages for twenty-three years:
Ohio, 40.26 cents per pound and Port
Philip 40.52 cents ikt pound, showing a
difference in favor of the latter of .26
cents por pound. During the whole
period both wools have risen and fallen
From every point of view this showing
is a remarkable one and deserves careful
consideration ou the part of those who

from a high duty on wool. New York

As an example is always better than

an actual transaction under the McKin

through the kinduess of a friend in New
He says, under date of Feb. 17: "I re
ceived a shipment this week from Man

woolen and worsted cloths, also some
cotton warp dress goods. Entered value,
$2,6:U. Packing is accountable for $1'J

$2,612. I paid $2,021.03 duly. Of course
the consumers, public at large, will
eventually pay this."
Let us study this concrete example for
We see that cloth and dress goods of
the value of $2,612 cost the importer
$3,233.03, which sum he must get back
from the consumers of the goods with
his profits u;on the transaction.

thus more than doubles their cost, and
at the same time increases by a like
amount the price at which "similar

people. This last is the purpose fur
which it is levied.
The labor cost of producing these
goods iu this country is not more than
20 per cent, greater than the labor cost
in Manchester, an 1 but for a tariff on
wool that actually depresses the value
of our native wool, but increases the
cost of the foreign wools needed for
mingling with our native grades to
make these goods, the cost of material

down and figure out to his satisfaction,
if he can, why a law of congress should
lie made to compel him to give two
