Now it is denied upon "the highest
possible authority-" that Mr. Blaine has
promised to make a single speech. Ii is
not at all probable that any of the Blaine
leaders et Minneapolis will take any ac
tive part in the republican campaign for
the simple r ason that they saw that the
convention was packed with federal of
ficeholders; in short, that B'aine was
cheated oat of the nomination.
The new half dollar to be struck by

ODfortheNrkinli) Tin I'late I'lantn.
Evan ville Curier.
The Anderson "Tin PUte factory."
which was sold by the sheriff a few days
a&o for less tban'f 220. was the first of
these tin plate fakes that was "estab
lished'' after the McKinley bill went into
operation, and it will be remembered how
great the enthuiasm created in Oiio was
when McKinley, who was then a candi
date for governor, held up before audi
ences a piece or "American tin" which
had been sent to him, "taken at random
from among the first lot manufactured at
Anderson, Ind." He predicted in a
glowing speech, the creation of a
great industry, employing hun
dreds of men; ana congratulated the city
or Anderson on its enterprise in securing
such a boon. But the Anderson tin
plate works never made any more tin af
ter that one effort. It turned out a few
car loads of roofing a piece of which
was mailed to the Courier from Boon

of this city, who was using it on a roof
he was putting on in Boonville but no
more bright plate was made, for the sim
ple reason that bright plate cannot be
made from American steel plater,
and the duty of 2.2 on English steel
plates makes them too expensive
to be broueht here for dippinp.
which is all that the Anderson shed,
known as the "Anderson Tin Plate
Works," ever pretended to do, and ail
that any other so-called Ameiican tin
plate works has yet been able to do. The
Elwood Works are attempting to manu
facture their own black plates, but they
have not yet made a commercial success
of it. The tin used in all "dipping" sheds
and the tin used at Elwood, even should
the manufacture of block plate be suc
cessful, is, and must be, Asiatic or other
foreign tin, for ihe reason that there is no
such thing as American tin ore in pay
