TIN PLATE TRUTHS.
THE TESTIMONY OF ACTUAL DEAL
ERS IN THE ARTICLE.
TaicletttOCfaU of Illinois Hare nam d
a winning ticket all the way through.
A strong ticket baa been nominated
fcj ft democracy of Illinois, and it will
just at surely win.
Co gbesman Cable was fi. tin. y hon
ored as a representative democrat by the
the party of the state in his election as
deleg-.te-at-large to the national convention.
Thk democrats of the Eleventh con
gressional district have no reason to be
displeased with the results of the state
convention. They got all the honor i they
could expect, and more than they sought.
Rayachol, the wildest of all the an
archists sentenced to life servitude, comes
by his crimical strain legitimately. In
vestigation reveals that his grandfather,
great-grandfather and great-great-grand
father were all hanged for crimes com.
mitted in the Netherlands.
It makes no difference whether Col.
Cuney of Texas, is black, red or yellow.
He is the ranking republican of the state
under Harrison's administration, and it is
time for Sam Houston's son to be learn
ing who bis betters are in the republican
par;y under the administration of Wil
liam Henry Harrison's grandson.
St. Louis Republic: The republican
speech ex-Congressman Xiedringhtui in
jected into the services of Dr. Masden's
church Sunday is rather above the aver
age of any be put into the congressional
record. If be goes on improving in tin
plate eloquence at this rate every time
the hat is handed around in church he
be will no doubt feel justified in running
for congress again .
The Theatre Magazine, published in
New York, is certainly a credit to the
editor, Desh'er Welch, and to the pro
fession who e art it discusses. Tne
April number, now before us, contains
some very bsndsome engravings a superb
frontispiece portrait of the actor, Joseph
K- Emmet, and about 50 pages of exceed
ingly entertaining reading matter.
Congressman Waiker, of Massachu
setts sajs that if the house shall expunge
from the record the undelivered portion
of his speech n fleeting on Represen'a
lives Williams and Hoar, he will retali
ate by indicting upon it the driest and
most tiresome speech thithas been brard
in the hall of the bouse since the forma
tion of the government. The interroga
tory title of the proposed verbal cruci
fixion is, "Are the moral obligations and
dut'ea of a patriotic member of congress
embellished with many illustrations from
facts of lifeT and the author thinks it
will take him fully three hours to answer
We must all do good in this worlJ re
cording to our natural endowments r.rd
the opportunities afforded us. Tho e:!i--r
day I was riding in a comfortably Cllotl
street car when there entered threo
young women dressed in the niirrotv
sheath skirts of the period. A jollv.
portly old gentleman got up to give one
of the pretty girls a seat, which xhe
. took with a gracious acknowledgment.
She seemed rather lost, however, in the
generous space vacated by the Pick
wickian frame of the old gentleman, so
she moved along far enough to let one
of her companions share the benefit.
Kow whether the passengers crowded
together imperceptibly, or whatever
may have happened, the two slender
young women did not yet take up the
whole seat, and the third blnshingly
squeezed into .what was left of it. By
this time the other people in the car
were too much amused to conceal their
smiles, and the old gentleman himself
was one vast glow of satisfaction. "It
isn't all of you that are fitted to perform
such a wholesale act of gallantry," said
he, in a low tone, to a friend in the cor
ner of the car. Kate Field's-Washington.

"Tin, Tin, American Tin!" Some Bard
fmeU for Protectionist Editors to Pon

In order to determine the much moot- f
ed question whether tin plates are yet I
m ide in this country, except in an ex-1
rjerimental war. tha secretarv of tha
oct to the. members of the association
tin fjwing circular:

In response to this circular 115 replies i

a f w 6&mplef of the replies received:
California San Francisco: We have not

Of the fifteen replies stating that the
writers have purch:fsed American made
plate:, the following are examples:
Ohic Cleveland: One box: but price too high
Pennsylvania Philadelphia: Five boxes. We
have I ad no plates offered to us by any manu
facturer. The above were bought to try the
The entire purchases up to the present,
since the duty went into effect here,
anion ated to only 665 boxes, or an aver
age of less than six boxes to each of the
firms which have sent in reports. And
yet the high tariff journals are making
the cl tim that we already produce sev
eral thousand boxes per day. But what
becon es of this tin plate?
panper labor of England, in the manu
facture of hardware, as compared with
our labor, may be compared with the1
cheap farm labor of India, where that;
class of labor is paid ten cents per day,
as compared with our western farm;
labor in the raising of wheat With
land as plenty and as cheap, with mil-
lions of acres which are not used in
India, but that are roamed over by wild
beasts, with land in plenty, and with'
labor at ten cents per day cbean labor
3 he usual acceptance of the term j
still ui his country we can produce'
wneat loore ueapiy man iney can in;
India, and yet ve pay one dollar per
day for the labor. j
In other words, the ten cent per day
labor in India, under all The conditions
tfeat they Have there, is not so cheap in!
the product obtained as is the one dollar!
per day labor of our western fanners.'
And so, if we will only take couraga and,1
go out before the world with our indus
tries, with our machinery, with our in-'
telligence and with our mercantile abil-'
ity, we can conquer the world in indus-j
trial pursuits. j
When I look Upon this intelligent, this
energetic, this ambitious company, it
seems strange that any one should think
that the industry and business ability of
any other nation on tho globe can com
pete with us in a free field and in a fair'
I have only to add that 1 know that
you gentlemen of the hardware trale.'
yon manufacturers and merchants will
carefully consider the question that
must come before you of the greater
freedom of trade; the question of plac
ing ourselves with our raw material on
an equal footing with the manufac
turers of England. Whenever we do
that we can certainly take care of our
selves in any quarter of the globe.

But American Labor Is the Cheapest In
J. U. Sargent is one of the largest
hardware manufacturers in the United
States. He has traveled around the
world several times to learn as much as
possible about the needs of foreign mar
kets. In the following speech which he
delivered at tho hardware dinner in
New York he tells why American labor
is the cheapest labor in the world:
In ajrricultural tools and implements
at leas: we take half the trade of the
foreigt countries outside of Europe, and
in all k inds of edge tools we take half
the tra le of South America and of Asia.
But, gt ntlemen, my time is more than
gone and I will bring my remarks to a
close bv saying that with the manufac
tures t f this country in their present
condition, with our machinery, with
our unrivaled help, with our skilled me
chanic, and with you, gentlemen of the
hardware and mercantile branches,
there i t no reason why we should not
only hold our own in our own country,
but tak) a large part of the trade of all
The American manufacturer, with the
American mechanic, has never seemed
to real ze his own strength or the
strengtl. of his own trade. We have, as
1 have always said, the most skilled,
most willing, the most energetic and
the mot t ambitious workers, workmen
and mechanics anywhere to be found.
Although our wages in this country
the earrings of men per day are very
much store than those of any other'
country, and especially of the countries
on the Continent, who are our competi-j
tors, and although they earn so much
more per day, still their labor to the1
manufacturer is cheaper than that of
laborers in other countries.
In otht r words, the labor cost of al
most any article of American hardware,
manufacture is less than the labor cost:
of the some article in any other coun-'
try. The fear which so many of na have'
had of tl e pauper labor of England is a
matter mi worthy of consideration. The
