We find that in two pears ending June
dU. lBtfl. we sent abroad in merchandise

from abroad in merchandise and c&8b,$l ,-
7U4, 454,299; Oifference, $174,879, B74.
S that in these past two years we have
Bent abroad in merchandise and cash
nearly $175,000,000 more than we have
received back. And this thing has been
going on for years. - We not only send to
other nations more merchandise than we
get from them, but pay them cash gold
and bullion in addition. Since the 30th
of last June, the date to which the above
figures are brought, our exports have in
creased enormously, but there has been
no proportionate increase in the amount
of goods we bare received, and no "flo
of gold to this country. In December
we sent to other nationa more than two
dollars Worth -of merchandise for every
dollar we received from them, and now
are sending -Our cash after the mercban
dise. And yet taking merchandise alone
we find the following to be the case, that
for the years '91 and . 93 that -we sent
abroat . merchandise, $1,717 564,llt; re
reived -from abroad merchandise. $1.
634,232.526; difference. - $83,341,585
.Which woulcrshow a balance hi favor of
this country on merchandise of 183.841,
585, anif a. s,reat tnany. people would
jump at the conclusion that aa . nation
we were that much , richer, which does
not. follow,,. t would ali depend whether
we nad sold out produce and manufae
tures for less or mote, than they bad coat
us, and whether we hid been charged an
exorbitant price for that which- we- bad
purchased. .' The fact that a nation sells
more than it buys noes not prove it to
have been a profitable transaction,', one
way or, the other. v . . .'
If a farmersells $1,000 worth of bovs
atid buys $500 worth of clothing and
f itm m,l e nenta. etc., will any one claim
that he is $500 better tiff financially than
he was before be 'Bold his hogs? If he
got five cents a pound for his hogs and
they bad only cost him four cents to raise
and fatten tbcm, of course 1 he! would be
2 per cent gainer in that transaction
but supposing that he gained upon bis
hogs, he . lost upon his purchases, he
would jut-t be even, wouldn't he? But
supposing corn is un.and his hogs have
cost him five cent per pound and be sells
them for 4, and. on account of import
duties, his clothing and farm implements
have cost him 40 per cent too much, how
then would the matter stand? A farmer
might ell 10 calves for $100 and then
buy five sheep for $50 cash, and may or
may not haye made a profit in Ibe trans
action, but the fact that he Bells more
than he buys, does not prove It either
way. - This error of attempting to show
the profits and losses of a nation by com
paring Its imports with its exports., to say
the least, is fallacious and deceptive.
Considering that the wealthy men of Eu
rope (principally in England) own and
hold our railroad bonds,, and for .years
been gobbling up oufi'landf, 'Manufactory
ies, distilleries, breweries, etc.. almost in
numerable, (Mr. "Scully of London, we
are told, owns " 75.000 acres of land in
one county in Kansas,' and 60,000 in
Illinois which he rents at 32 25 vet acre),
therefore the large output of gold and
silver from this country, may i be ac
counted for; : in part, that it is
profits and dividends to the wealthy men
of Europe. Cut we would ask right here
if protection is the one, and only .laiqa
