The Brotherhood of Carpenters and
Joiners, in national convention at St.
Louia, bave adopted a resolution de
rrandicg of congress the repeal of tbe
clause closing tbe exposition Sunday,
'thereby keeping faith with the people
from -whom they bave solicited and re
ceived subscriptions, and calling upon
all labor unions of the craft to use every
honorable means in their power to com
pel their representatives to vote for the
opening cf said World's Columbian ex
position. Harr-lsoa'S) Civil sServler.
The pres. nt executive was elected on
the plattorta of 1888, wbich contained a
positive pledge of civil service reform.
The administration of Cleveland coming
closer to civil service rules than any
with whioh the country had been blessed
compelled tbe republicans to make equal
pledges, and they did so with all the glit
tering fervidness of which tbe English
language is capable.
Where are those pledges now?
A. more striking illu-tration of nepo
tism gone mad has never encumbered tbe
white bouse. All the Harrison kin are
in the public service, no matter whether
maimed, halt or blind. In a general way
the appointments are entirely partisan,
and the dirtiest of political services are
entitled lo the choicest rewards. The
civil service has never been eo conspicu
ously debased as by the Harrison admin
In the face of it all tbe Minneapolis
platform eavs: "We commend the spirit
and evidence of reform in the civil ser
rice and tbe wise and cocs'Stent enforce
ment by the republican parly of laws
regulating t.e same."
Here we find the ravisher preaching
virtue. A more venturesome piece of
sarcasm was never intruded in a party
platform. In its attitude toward civil
service, the Harrison administration can
not by deception escape rebuke.

OVER THE TARIFF WALL.
Where All Wage Kara
era Are Heine
per cent tariff
If you will look at the above diagram
it will explain the effect of tbe tariff upon
wages. By wages we mean all that men
make by their exertions mental work
and physical work, whether for employ
ers or for themselves. Tbe hod carrier,
the farmer and tbe business man are all
earning wages. Consider the diagram a
minute. A is America; E is Europe; the
heavy line is tbe border of America; and
60 per cent is the average duty on all ar
ticles brought from Europe over tbe bor
der. Now, let us take any sum repre
senting wages say $5. What is it that
reduces tbe value of tbe $5 earned by the
Americas workman? The tariff. Why?
Because the $5 would buy more if there
were no duty on the articles imported
into this country.
Yes, but here a good protection friend
breaks in, and says that tbe American
would not get such high wages if it were
not for the tariff. Is that really so?
Think a minute. If tbe tariff raises
wages, it would be the duty of every
congressman lo see that the tariff was
put up as high as possible. We all want
tbe highest wages. But it does no such
thing. The wealthy capitalist who owns
a large mill pays his workmen at the
market rate. What they produce all be
longs to him. Sometimes the tariff pro
tects him from foreign competition and
his product sells at a very high price, but
his workmen do not get any benefits.
All the extra benefits go to swell the
wealthy capitalist. His family often go
to Europe and buy their goods, but the
families of his workmen have to stay at
home and spend their wages to pay tbe
tariff prices for all they buy.
Does the farmer get more wages by
reason of the tariff? Just the contrary.
He gets less. The farmer has to sell his
stuff at prices which they pay in the for
eign market. There he meets the com
petition of the farmers of the whole
world. He is obliged to spend the money
that he gets for his produce in America
and to pay tbe high tariff prices for all
that he buys. His wages are reduced by
this process. But here again I am inter
rupted by my protectionist friend. He
says that we are giving all the home mar
ket to the farmer. But I answer that the
farmer always had the home market.
You cannot take it away from bim. He
makes a surplus every year, and accord
ingly we cannot use all be raises. The
prices he sells his surplus for are the
ruling market prices all around. It
would be impossible to cell higher in
America, for it would at once stop ex
port, and all the farm produce would glut
tbe home market and drive down the
price. Equally impossible would it be
to get a higher pries for the stuff ex
ported, for then all would be held away
from the home market, and the scarcity
would send up tbe price at home. So
trade in farm products creates a natural
balance in price between the home and
the foreign market.
But it is after the farmer has sold his
stuff that he gets most infernally bitten
by the tariff, for then he must make bis
purchases at prices which are made arti
ficially high by tbe average of 60 per
cent levied on imports. Thus his wages
are reduced, and so it is with everybody's
wages. What we want is to study tbe
value of our wages wbich is seriously im
paired by the tariff. Free trade would
give us tbe best value for our wages.
There will be more free trade and a
greater demand for labor when we get
free trade. T. W. Brown, Jr.

Jas. S- Kirk & Co- of Chicago, have
put upon the market lately, as a result of
their half century's experience, tbeir
Dusky Diamond Soap, a soap adapted to
all household uses. By a happy, but pe
culiar combination, tbey are enabied to
use tar in this soap, and
there is co one that needs to
be told that tar is recognized
as the greatest of tbe healing agents. It
also is recognized for its softening quali
ties, and any one troubled with hard
hands, cracked hands, sore hands, will
become enthusiastic over the "Dusky
