party a little ahead ot himself.
Tbe following letter has been issued by
the Lutheran school committee in Chi
cago and formally signed by Thco. M.
Stephan, chairman of the executive
committee: "It is stated on seemingly
good authority that the republican party
leaders have caused a number of Lutheran
republican partisans to issue and distrib
ute among the Lutherans a circular stat
ing that they have been misled by the
Lutheran school committee on the school.
The school committee is represented as a
partisan gang, working solely for the
interest of the democratic party. The
circular calls upon the Lutheran voters in
the state to refuse to follow tbe leader
ship of their committee, to vote the
republican ticket and work in tbe interest
of the same. They say tbe republican
party did not deserve tbe distrust with
which it was met by the committee and
their followers, etc., etc. The issuing of
this circular is nothing but a political
trick, and the statements made therein do
not voice tbe sentiments of tbe Lutheran
church, butooly those of a few mtlcon
tents to whom tbe welfare of their church
and school is only secondary to lhat of
their party. They are not representing
and voicing any Lutherans other than
themselves, tbe large body of Lutherans
taking the same stand the committee has
taken in i'.s manifesto of May 6."
Am to Tin lMte.
Boston Herald :
A cable dispatch announces that im
portant orders for tin plates for ship
ment to the Uniied States arc in negoti
at ion with Welssh and English firms. It
is also reported that advices just re
ceived in Staffordshire show that Ameri
can manufacturers cannot meet one
fifth of tbe consumptive demand for tin
plates here. If the future is to be meas
ured by tbe record of the past six months,
tbe capacity of American manufacturers
of tin plates is greatly overated in the
cabled estimate. Though tbe monstrous
stimulus to the homo production of $tbc
article given by the McKinley tariff has
been in full operation since July 1, 1891.
that production is still so inconsiderable
that it has not made any perceptible
mark on the shipments of tin plate from
Great Britain to the United States.
Tbe official returns of British export
lor tbe first six months of 1892 came
to hand last week. In the period cov
ered by them 320.867,040 poands of tin
plates were exported to this country.
These figures, of course, bear no compar
ison witn the exports during the first six
months of lfc$H. when the English and
Welsh manufacturers were working night
and day to fill the orders of America i
importers of tbe plates wbo wished to
avoid the heavy addition! duly that
would be imposed by tbe McKinley act
after July 1. But when you put the
present exports in comparison with tbe
exports of normal years you find that
they make a' very good exhibit. In the
first six months of 1890 the exports of tin
plates from Great Britain to the United
States amounted to 811.420.480 pounds
In corresponding period of 1889 they were
403 O83.i40 pounds. In tbe time months
of 1888 they were 314,549.700 poands,
n w' i i -i 'irLrrrv"nn--rr" .Ty?' '
aid in the first half of 1887 they were
Thus tbe British exports of tin plates
to this country in the past six months are
actually 8. 946.060 pounds larger than in
the same months of 1890. 5.817,280
pounds larger than in the same months of
1888. and 17,272.040 pounds larger man
ia tbe same months of 18S7. Bear in
mind. also, that last year this country
imported tin plates to an unprecedented
extent, so thai the American consump
tion was met to some extent this year
from the over-importation of 1891. The
figures which we have given furnish am
ple and undeniable proof that thus far
the American manufacture or tin plates
is, from a business point of view, a mere
mvtb. It has not in any degree dimin
ished the dependence of this country
upon tbe British makers of the article.
DISTRIBUTION OK WEALTH.
Tfe Troubles at Homestead tbe Inevit
able Rosult of the Tariff System.
The discussion of the tragedy at the
Homestead mills is bringing out some
of the serious thoughts of intelligent
men in regard to dangers not only from
contact of capital and labor, like this
deplorable one, bnt from the inevitable
results that must follow the congestion
of wealth in the hands of a compara
tively few. The opinion seems to be
rapidly gaining ground that we are to
have more rather than less of these trou
bles, and that they are but symptoms of
a disease that is becoming deep seated
and that threatens the very Jife of our
republic, which outwardly looks so
fair. It is also beginning to be recog
nized that nostrums and quack reme
dies, such as schemes of profit sharing,
co-operation, etc., though they may do
more good than harm, yet they can
never cure the general disease which
can be reached only by radical remedies.
What then is the disease that is racking
and torturing this industrial common
wealth? What was its cause, what has
been its progress and what is the rem
edy? For want of a better name we will
call the disease plutocracy. It comes
from the nnequal distribution of earn
ings or wealth, the greater part of
which is rapidly being concentrated
into the bands of a few. Hundreds are
reaping where millions sow; resulting
in millionaires on the one hand and
tramps on the other, with the pressure
on all between tiecoming greater and
greater. The evils of this system are
that while in theory the laws are made
by tbe jieople, practically the masse
only obey the laws made by the rich.
Money becomes king. The evils of
the system are far reaching. Classes
and castes are established. The wealthy
become arrogant or lead wild and reck
less lives. The ioor lose hope, courage
and patriotism and accept sullenly their
lot as subjects and slaves of the "million
aires who employ them or who hold
mortgages over their head:;.
The cause of this disease is found in
the laws and systems which grant pub
lic property and privileges to private
individuals or corporations.
The disease had but little hold ujKn the
country previous to the civil war. There
were then no more millionaires than
could be counted on one's finders. During
the war of 1S61-5 big government con
tracts laid the basis of some of tiio largo
fortunes since accumulated. The pro
tection system was then begun which
has ever since lteen taking money from
the pockets of farmers and laborers and
putting it into those of. the manufactur
ers. The increased powers of produc
tion resulting from improved machinery
and methods have increased the inlln
ence and iiower of capital ; o that
millionaires tire being turned out more
rapidly than ever before. Th- New
York Tribune printed a list of over
4,000 millionaires a few week.-. :.o, clas
sifying them according to the; : curevs
of their wealth.
According to this authority aln.-.-.t CO
per cent, made their money thi. in
protected industries, perhaps per
cent, mainly as holders of or specula
tors in land, and the remainder mw.iy
from patent or other monopolies, appre
ciation of money values, etc. The most
of these fortunes are accumulated legal
ly, though often laws '.re strained after
being made to aid such nccnmnlatiom:.
But justice would not have distributed
wealth in any such fashion. It would
leave valuable monopolies in the hands
of private persons, but would make the
production of property the only title to
it. It would erect no barriers to com
merce to compel consumers to bny t'car
goods of any favored set of producers,
but would leave opportunities and priv
ileges open to all ulike.
The remedy for this disease then can
not be found in laws that will increase
restrictions upon trade or grant mere
privileges to any class. Restrictions
mnst lie removed and the indirect meth
ods of taxation which now filch monev
from the poor and turn it over to the
rich must be replaced by a direct sys
tem which shall lear no more heavily
upon the poor than upon the rich; or,
better still, tax the opportunities to pro
duction until the unearned increment,
now largely taken by the wealthy, shall
be utilized for the benefit of all. When
this is done men will be put upon an
equal footing and each will get what he
earns and earn what he gets. Large cor
porations may then exist, but it will be
because they can produce most cheaply
and not because they will have greater
advantage over labor.

Albany, Jan. 16. 1890.
I desire once more to bear my testi
mony to tbe value of AHcock'a Porous
Plasters. I have used taem tor years
past, and can conscientiouly commend
them as the best external remedy that I
have known. Years ago. when thrown
from a carriaee and seriously injured. I
gave them a thorough trial. Ia a very
short time tbe pain that I was suffering
disappeared, and within a wetit I was
entirely relieved. On another occasion,
when suffering from a severe cough.
which threatened pulmonary difficulties
which I was recommended to go to Flor
ida to relieve, I determined to test the
plasters aga;n. I applied them to my
chest and between tbe shoulder blades.
and in less than a fortnight was entirely
cured. On still another occasion, when
suffering from an a. tack of rheumatism
in the shoulder to such an extent that I
could bardly raise my arm. I again re
sorted to the plasters, and within a very
few days the rheumatism entirely disap
peared. I have them constantly by me.
whether at borne or abroad. My family
as well as myself have found them to be
a sovereign remedy, both for external
and internal troubles. I never bad but
one kidney difficulty in my life, and the
application of the plasters cured me in a
week. I desire, as I said before, to bear
mv testimony in a public way to their
efficacy, and I know of no better way of
doing it than by giving you my personal
