Ut Bark at Private Joe.
At the annual meeting of Kevins post,
held early in the winter, a number of
grand army men were present from vari
ous parts of the state. Prominent among
the gathering were Gov. Fifer and genial
Major Jack Burst, of Cbicago. The lat
ter, who lost a leg while with Sherman
on the march to the sea, had just been
removed from an office by Calamity Joe
to make room for a trading politician
At tbe conclusion of the exercises a few
of the congenial spirits adjourned to
Major Roper's office. Major Burst was
engaged in conversation with Gen.
Thomas, of Chicago, when in walked
tbe iceberg whom accident had made
governor of Illinois. He walked up to
Burst and proffered his hand. The lat
ter turned his back on Joe and as calmly
as possible said: "I have no love or use
for you, and refuse to grasp your hand.

The President's) H ler Fatally.
The Washington correspondent of an
administration organ declares that tbe
president is bent on appointing Attorney
General Miller to the vacant seat on the
supreme bench, "fearing," as it is some
what paradoxically stated, "lest he may
not have another opportunity to honor
Mr. Miller" fearing, that is, that an
other justice of the supreme court may
not die during his term.
There la a strong element of oppo
sition in the senate to the further up
lifting of this man Miller, who hip -pens
to be attorney general because be
previously happened to be the presi
dent's law partner and for ne otber ap
parent reason. Mr. Harrison is some
what too enthusiastic in his hoosierism
to please the senate or the people. To
ay nothing of a host of hoosier small fry.
lifted by his hand to the questionable
dignity of official misfits, there is Miller
and there is Woods the malodorous, botb
already exalted to preposterous heights.
It is much too soon after the Woods epi
sode to talk of further honors for Miller.
We want a rest from tbe country lawyer,
from tbe country railroad lawyer, from
the hoosier country railroad lawyer and
from tbe hoosier country railroad lawyer
wbom Harrison loves.
There is already one of these gentry in
the president's chair, another in the pres
ident's cabinet and another on the second
highest bench in tbe land. And that is
an elegant sufficiency, thank you.

It will be sufficient to go back to 1880
to trace the history of this combine. In
that year there were eleven works pro
ducing steel rails as follows: The North
Chicago, the South Chicago and the
Union an 1 Joliet Iron works, in Illinois;
the Edgar Thompson Steel works, the
Cambria Iron company, the Pennsyl
vania Stt el company, the Lackawanna
Coal and Iron company and the Scrauton
Steel coiipanv, in Pennsylvania; the
Troy Steel and Iron comiwuy, in New
York; the Cleveland Rolling Mill com
pany, in Ohio, and the St. Louis Steel
company, in Missouri. During the rive
years following 180 four other iron
companies added steel rail mills to their
plants the Worcester Steel works.
Massachusetts; tbe Homestead Steel
works, Pt nusylvania; the Southern Iron
company, Tennessee; the Springfield
Iron company, Illinois, and the Colorado
Coal and Iron company. To these must
be added the Dnquesne works bnilt in
1816-8, a id the Maryland plant of
the Pennsylvania Steel company recent
ly completed. This makes a total of
seventeen separate works which were iii
operation or have been built since 188U.
Of the fifteen works in operation in
1886 aud 1887 the following liave ceased
producing tails: The St. Lonis Steel
company, the Troy Steel and Iron com
pany, the Cleveland Rolling Mills com
pany, the Worcester Steel works and the
SpringfieM Iron company. During tbe
same period the other works have
been consalHated as follows: The Illi
nois Steel company absorlied the three
Illinois works first mentioned; Car
negie Bros. & Co. secured control by
purchase of the Dnquesne Steel works
and the H jmestead Steel works, and the
Lackawai na Coal and Iron company
added to its original plant the Scranton
Steel worl:s. This consolidation of in
terests was completed early in 1891. with
the result that the steel rail combine
now con train all the works making raila
in the United States except that of the
Colorado 3oal and Iron company, whose
annual capacity is only 100.000 net tons.
Several more or less strong combina
tions have been formed since 1880 to
control production and fix prices, but
with varying success. Previous to the
present co nbine that of 188 and 188?
was the most successful of all. In the
fall of 1845 an era of active railroad
construction was begun and continued
throughout 1886 and 1887. As a result
of the liirge demand for rails the
combine as able to force the price m
to the importing point in spite of the
fact that the duty was then $18 per tou.
The effect of these combinations on
prices is shown in the following Kble"

The extent to which the prices of steel
rails have !eeu manipulated by the com
bine is well shown in the above tables.
If it be the objects of trusts which sup
press com :eti Lion to secure the econo
mies which are gained by unifying in
terests and lowering tbe cost of produc
tion, and t divide the advantages thus
gained Ijetween producers aud con
sumers, th B divisioa has not yet lieeu
made by .he steel rail trust. On the
contrary, the combine has not only ap
propriated ail the Itinolits to itself, but
it has adde 1 to its profits by increasing
prices alxive the level prevailing under
competition. Since the consolidation of
interests ei rly in ISi't not a ton of rails
has len s Id by the eastern iiiciulx-rs of
the combine lit Iw than $:!0 at the
works, or by the vvs'u.m member, the
Illinois st iel coinivuiy, tit le.ss than
$31.50. Tl.ese wer, the prices ngrtml

The investigations into the cost of pro
ducing the various products . f iron and
steel by the commissioner of laljor show
the enormous profits of the c (.lubination.
On page H 8 of his report the commis
sioner says, "The department has been
positively informed relative to the cost
of making rails in several of the very
largest ' establishments in the United
States, and there is no shadow of a doubt
in the mind of the writer that in these
establishments the actual cost of stand
ard rails is, and has been for some time,
within a few cents of twenty-two dol
lars per ton at the works."
The facts on which Mr. Wright based
this statement were collected by him in
1889 and 1890. Since then an important
change has taken place. Not only have
the prices of materials fallen consider
ably, but wages have been reduced from
10 to over 15 per cent, in the mills of all
the members of the combination. These
reductions have had the effect of reduc
ing materially the cost of producing
rails. In fact, well informed persons
are of the opinion that the total cost of
production ' of steel rails is Sow below
twenty dollars per ton. On this basis
the combine is making a profit of not
less than ten dollars per ton for every ton
of rails sold at the combination price.
Under ordinary conditions this high
rate of profit would cause new plants to
be put in operation, but such outside
Works as now have the machinery needed
re either under agreements with the
combine not to engage in producing
rails, or realize that if they should at
tempt it the combine would at once cut
prices and thus prevent them from competing.
The steel rail combine therefore is a
monopoly of the worst character. By
keeping up the price of rails it prevents
the railroads from making needed re
pairs and extending their lines. This is
clearljf shown by the experience of the
past year. And when, in spite of the
combine, an era of railroad building be
gins, the prices of rails is at once raised
to the importing point, with the result
that the cost of such extension is great
ly increased. The high prices mling in
1886 and 1887 are a sufficient proof of
this, and the competition of foreign
rails, even at the high prices now ruling
here, is prevented by the duty of $13.44
per ton. In short, in its absolute con
trol over production and prices, the steel
rail combine has a mortgage on future
railroad extension, with full power to
foreclose it at any time it sees tit.
The Wrapping Paper Trust.
The representatives of the wrapping
paper combine concluded their secret
conference at the Auditorium yesterday,
and were congratulating themselves
last evening before departing for their
homes on the fact that they had gather
ed in three more factories two in Ohio
and one in Indiana. There are fifty
eight mills in the United States engaged
in manufacturing coarse wrapping pa
per, and of these twenty-six are in the
trust, which has its headquarters in
This trust was badly wrecked by the
antitrust law when it first came into
force, and has not fully recovered from
the shock. However, it is making rapid
strides, and expects to have all the mills
back into the combine in a year or two,
At present it runs under no particular
name.and without a president or any high
sounding title of any sort. The product
of its twenty-six mills is marketed
through a general agent, and he. with
two others, constitutes the executive

mon wrapping patter ranges from $1.25
to $1.75 tier loo pounds, while the figures
of the independent makers range from
five to ten cents less. The object of the
meeting was to extend the membership
of the trust and take i"is to prevent
further hurtiul competition. The prog
ress in this direction was quite flatter

of the trust were taken into the fold aud
others are preparing to follow. A slight
cut in price was ordered, but Mr. Hal
lailay says that as niuu as the other

The proclamation of the president im

which was foreshadowed by the notice
given on Jan. 8 last, has been issued, to
take effect immediately. It applies to
the products of Colombia, Hayti and

merchants interested that it will seri
ously affect onr trade with these conn
tries. The only products really affected
are coffee and hides, on which duties of

the total imports.' eneztiela coffee is
unlike that of any other country, and
generally comiuamls a higher price in
the United Status than in England. It
remains to lie ,-wv.n, thert.fore, whether
the duty will be added to the price or le
paid by the exporter.
No good. result are jHissible from thin

effect will bo to engender hatred against

authority to impose these duties had not
