Grosvenor was known for abont fifteen years as an earnest opponent of the protective theory, but he is now hear tily in favor of the protection of American industry. He gave some reasons for his change of mind before the Union League of Philadelphia, and they are well worth the at tention of all interested in the prosperity of the country. Colonel Grosvenor frankly ac knowledges that he has learned something. 'Many things," he says, "which I have doubted or disbelieved have been demon strated before my eyes. It is not the part of manhood to shut the eyes to the truth. I have tried to be an honest student of facts. and when the facts call for new conclusions I am not afraid to form them. My own opin ions have in many respects been changed by the results realized during the past ten years and especially by the increasing rewards of industry here." The protective tariff, which has built up American indus try, and the ' Homestead Act, which has dotted the West with thriving farms, Colonel Grosvenor regards as two parts of one grand system. While the Homestead Act has increased the number of farms thir ty-five per cent, since 1860, the tariff has in creased the camber of workmen employed in manufactures 108 per cent. In 1860 the farmer had, for. every 10,000 acres of im proved land, eighty manufacturing workers to eat his products; in 1880, for every 10,000 acres, ninety-six manufacturing workers, and because the wages of labor had advanced, the sum which the consumers were enabled to spend in buying the products of the farm had increased. In 1860 the wages of manufacturing laborers amounted to 2.33 for every acre of improved land in farms; in 1880 the proportion had risen to $3.33. The increase, forty-three per csnt.j fixed the return for labor on the land, as shown by the Massachusetts Labor Reports, farm labor in 1860 having received $13.63 per month in that State, whereas now, ac cording to the latest statement of the Bureau of Agriculture, the average wages of farm labor in the whole country were $18.58 an increase 5f 43 per cent. "Yet," added Col onel Grosvenor, "there are men who call themselves economists, and others who call themselves statesmen, who pretend that a tariff can do nothing to help the farmer, and is effective only to tax and to burden him." Colonel Grosvenor showed that in twenty- four years protection had lifted the nation past France, past Germany, past England, to the position of the richest, the most power ful and the most prosperous nation in the world. In 1860 the wealth of the country amounted to sixteen thousand millions, in cluding the value of slaves as property. In 1880, according to the estimate prepared by the Census Bureau, and with property in hu man flesh no longer existing, the wealth of the country was forty-three thousand and six hundred millions. If the census items only should be included on each side, the wealth of Great Britain fell below forty thousand millions, but ' upon ' any mode of computation the United States was now the richest nation earth. Great fortunes were comparatively few. The policy of the na tion prevented great landed estates, and the country was rich because the people were rich. Without presenting statistical details Colonel Grosvenor asked to be per mitted to say, on whatever personal reputa tion as a student he possessed, "that there is no nation of 100,000,000, no body of 100, 000,000, in any two or more contiguous countries, which consumes as much, in sup plying human needs and comforts each year, as the 50,000,000 inhabitants of the United States." In view of these facts it is not surprising that Colonel Grosvenor is persuaded that it would be folly to abandon the Republican policy of protection. This policy has pro duced magnificent results and it is not yet time to abandon it. EDITORIAL NOTES. Any quantity of people can tell you how Ohio is going to-day but we shall all know something about it to-morrow. In the seventy-one years preceding the en actment of the Morrill tariff 41,118 patents were granted and 308 reissued in this coun try; while in the scant twenty-four years since the new'patents have numbered 275,869 and the reissues 10,221. Yet the Boston Post thinks "invention has gone dead be cause of protection. . Some idea of the extent1 to ; which opium eating has been carried in this country may be gained from the records of the Ban Fran cisco custom house. When it became known that the duty on the drug was to be raised from $6 to $10 a pound the California deal era brought in several million dollars' worth, and as the supply exceeded the demand it had to be stored away . in various banks and warehouses. Recently that which came in under the old rate was nearly exhausted, and the first shipment under the new. conaiHtinrr of 131 cases, netted the government in the way of duties 500,000. Some of the English rectors are not very meek and lowly Christians. One of them has just sent the followine note to the w.hnnl- master of his village, an intelligent man of excellent character: All the VillAO-ora doalmna i . w ....

L. Tollemache-Tollema-che evidently needs to be taken down a peg or two. The Hartford Courant well states the re cord of the Democratic party of Connecticut' as follows:' ' I. Support of the absolute free trade de clarations of the national platforms in 1856 60; of "tariff for revenue only" in 1868-76-80; and "tariff for revenue exclusively" in 1884. II. Support of the Morrison bill, in fur therance of the "revenue only" idea in 1884. in. Rebuke of the Republican senators from Connecticut for not supporting a free trade treaty, and an attack upon the tobacco growers of the State for engaging in an in dustry which demands protection. IV. Refusal of all but two State senators to vote for an amendment declaring unequivo cally for the protection of Connecticut in dustries generally. The largest exploring party now in Africa is that of Major Carvalho,. who was finely equipped by the Portugal government last June, and despatched from Angola with a force of four hundred native carriers to visit the dominions of the Muata Yanvo, about five hundred miles south of the Congo. He is the bearer of splendid presents to that Central African potentate, and hopes to open up his country, which is said to be as large as Germany, to travelers and traders. Only two educated Europeans, Drs. Pogge and Buchner, have succeeded in reaching Kawen de, the capital of the Muata Yanvo, who would not permit them to pass thsough his country, but compelled them to retrace their steps. Three hnndred chiefs owe him alle giance. In territorial extent his empire is the largest in Central Africa, but it is not so densely populated as Mtesa's Uganda, and is supposed to have only 2,000,000 inhabitants. . The question as to long or short rails has been much discussed. It is stated that the first railroad line in France, viz., from St. Etienne to Andrezieux, had rails only three feet eleven inches long and . weighing forty five pounds. This was in 1828; but in 1833, on the road from. St. Etienne to Lyons, the rail had increased in length to about fourteen feet eight inches, and to 132 pounds weight. Various increases continued thus to be made in France, until the length reached nineteen feet six inches. England adopted a rail measuring from twenty-one to twenty-four feet, with a weight of 110 pounds per thirty nine running inches. The great objection urged against the increase of length is that the iron rail exfoliates and is damaged at any point instead of only at the ends. The case is different, however, with cast steel rails, these being now turned out in Belgium and France 1 some eighty-five feet in length. Considering the dilation due to changes of temperature, the minimum length of a French rail will probably be fixed at about forty-nine feet three inches. - VENETIAN.

A Chicago KCan Who Earns $1,250 a If ear, Lives Well, Enjoys Life, Doesn't Save a Cent, Doesn't Care and Is Still Happy as a' Clam. "That was a very thickly studded story you had in the Herald last Sunday taken from a New York paper about a man who lived in a flat and out of a salary of $1,000 a year saved $270." The Herald economist was talking with a young married man who has a salary of $1,250 a year and never saves a cent. He thought the New York story was thickly studded, by which he meant that it was pic turesque. "Then, you don't believe a man can live ' in a city on that salary and save money!'" -asked "the ' economist, who had a one time in Ms Efe solved the problem of living in a city on; no salary at aH, - "Yes," answered the listener, 't do. That is to say a man can exist. There is a good deal of lying done about tins problem of liv ing or else I am the most extravagant man on earth, which. jTdon't believe. I get $1,250 a year and don't save a cent-. On the contra ry I run In debt. Now you would like to have something practical to put in the Her ald. Suppose you come and take dinner with me. And you go with me to-day so that the madame will have no warning. In that way you Shall see for yourself our aver age mode of life. Let's play the other side of that New York Btory and Bee where it will land you." The economist and the young married man of $1,250 went away together to the home of the latter to six o'clock dinner. As they ap proached the house the man of high salary said: "You notice that the portion of town in which you are now walking is decent and clean." So it was. There was a breath of cleanli ness in the air that was like a shower on a parched field. The houses were neat and tidy. "Is it worth anything to a man's mind and body to live in such a vicinity?" The question had but one answer. The house was reached. The apartment where the $1,250 a year young man lived was a flat. It contained five rooms and was up one flight of stairs. It was a nest in its appearance. There was not a picture too many or too cost ly. It was comfort. Every window was a charming nook, and one could sit at any one of them acd enjoy life. One of the bed rooms was cool, delightful and looked like a dell. It was festooned with leaves and a ge ranium shaded the window, and a hanging basket of woodland greens swayed from the ceiling as if it was handed down by an an gel. The kitchen was as pretty as any room in the house. It was carpeted and adjoined the back parlor. A bird cage swung from the window of this and the yellow inmate danced and saDg merrily as his salaried mas ter and companion entered. There was a coal oil stove on a table put up for it. -"idon't barn eoal in the summer," said the $1,250 man. "It is expensive, dirty and heats the house. Cleanliness is my motto. Upon that hangs a man's chances to grow gray and then baldheaded. That's worth something, isn't it?" The economist had to admit that such was the case. "How do you like the appearance of the flat? No flattery, for this is a common-sense visit and one for study." There could be but one opinion as to the appearance of the flat, no matter what the object of the visit was, and that opinion was honestly given. "I suppose you. think that the man who owns the building lets me occupy this flat for nothing!" The economist would by no rule known to man arrive at any such a conclusion. "I suppose you think I get this for the same that one would pay for a shanty on a back street?" There was no way of arriving at that con clusion either. "I pay thirty dollars for it. Cheap enough. That thirty dollars is not for the bare rooms, my friend. It is for health, for respectabili ty, for decency. My wife and boy can go out for a stroll of an evening or morning anywhere in this part of the city without be ing knocked down or catching some disease caused by filth. They can sit in any win dow in the house and have a very pretty ; view. Are these things worth paying fori" The economist was silent. "Come in and let's have something to eat." ' The table was prettily spread. There were few plates and few dishes. There was a rose and an evergreen of some sort in a goblet on the table. The little housewife was her own housekeeper, and consequently her own cook. She brought in the work of her own hands and culinary taste. "This is a rump roast," said tho master of the house. "It makes the best roast yon can buy if it is tender, ' and if you buy at one place yon can always get it so. How much was this?" he asked of his wife. "I paid ono dollar for it. It is a trifle larger than we generally get," said the little wife; "but we will have a stew out of the remaining por tion of it to-morrow," she continued. There were some baked potatoes, stewed tomatoes, corn, tea, stale bread and butter. It was butter, however, and simply delicious. It made tho economist feel as if ho would like to kiss the cow that gave the milk that was churned by the maid that sent tho result to market. "I get my butter in the coun try," said the man of $1,250. "By the time I get it delivered it costs me as much as it would by the firkin on South Water street. But it is butter when it gets here. The same with my eggs. Is that worth anything?" Then there were some tarts and some fruit and a bottle of claret. "I get that claret from a friend who procures it at wholesale, $1.50 a gallon. Taste it. It is as good as you or anybody can get in Chicago for more money. I drink one gallon a week. It is all the drinking I do. I never take a drink down town. I never taste beer or whiskey. I say is there anything in that to make a man repine? Any comfort in that, my boy? Of course I could do without this wine. I could move out of this neighborhood on a back street or live in a basement. I could put a cook-stove up in summer and have my wifo make a cook of herself so that she would be tired out and peevish and fretful when I camo home. Nice thing for a man whoso business cares harass him to come home and find a cross, red-faced, peevish wife, ain't it? Helps a man to make a living, doesn't it ? Makes him young and causes him to sleep well! Bah. Have another glass." Then after the dinner he brought out two pipes and some delicious smoking tobacco. I hardly ever smoke a cigar except upon the street. Of course I might givo you a clay pipe and some chips to smoke. I don't care to poison my nerves, so I get the purest and best tobacco. Anything wrong in that? Of course it costs more." Then he told his boy to take fifty cents and go out on the lake. This aid not otten occur, but it was worth the money occasion ally for health. Then he went over to a drug store ana oroerea a nansom. i am going to take my wife out for a drive," he said. UI course i migni- leave ner 111 me house. And of course I will have to pay for this hansom; I don't own it. When we come back from our drive we will feel like having a sweet sleep. I have no cheap food in my stomacn upon wnicn to itinen a nigui, mare." The economist ventured to ask the $1,250 man if his wardrobe was an expensive item. "No: not very. I have a pair of panta loons, patched, at my office. . I have what common people call a Sunday suit, for we -go out now and then to visit, or to a concert or to the theatre. My clothes linen and un derwear go to the laundry. My wifo makes her own dresses and other wear, except two dresses which Bhe always has for evening, made by the modiste. They are trimmed over and cut down or fixed up so that they do service for a year at least. She has a wo man who comes to the house to do her wash. She does her own ironing. Is there anything in my life that is extravagant!" The economist was still silent. "You can come to my house any day in the week and find as good a dinner as you got there to-day. We don't gorge one day and starve the next, like that New York chap. That may be a good way for ani mals to live. None of it for me" '.'What are your expenses!" "I don't know. I don't care what they are so loner as mv wife's cheeks are red, so loDg as her eyes sparkle, so long as my boy enjoys his youth, so long as I do not feel the prodding of time and his chiding voice. 'Don't do it you are getting old. Take care of yourself.' I say bah! on such an idea of life as that." "But suppose you were taken sick and your wile snouia nave lu uupeiiu uxi friends! "I am a man who attends to his busi ness. My employer does not concern him self half as much about his business as I do. I work for him faithfully and consci entiously," and he knows it. My neighbors know it. They know I do not gamble or get drunk or neglect my business or my family. Do you suppose that I am such a cynic as to believe that a man who does his dnty in this way will suffer. No, sir." "You have great faith," said the econo mist, who had been shoved from the tops of several buildings and kicked down the stairway of adversity. "Yes, sir, I have. I tell you that suc cess in life depends upon faith. And faith consists in doing your duty." "But when you grow old and come to die?" 'I have nothing to do with that. 1 am put here and I ' employ my talents to the best advantage. . When my last day's work is over, and the last mgnr, snaxi come m mo, aa n, will, my boy, to all of us, I am not afraid but the man who put me here to work will see that I have a place in which to lip down." - . . . , t - : j7 x i And as he saia cms lus wxxe putr tier arms about his neck and kissed him. And the econ omist went away marveling much at what he had seen and heard. Wool Auctions In London. IFrom the Spectator. There is no more curious sight in the city than one of the wool auctions which are now being held every afternoon in the wool ex change, Coleman street. Imagine a large and lofty room, capable of holding about 500 people. Benches, in the form of a semi-circle, rise tier above tier, so that all the sitters are plainly visible from the tribune, or rostrum an elevated desk from the bottom of the room. Every seat is numbered, and the highest number is 368. A narrow gallery provides accommodation for a few spectators. Five minutss before 4 nearly every seat is occupied, the demand for them exceeding the supply; and as the clock strikes the hour, the auctioneer, or selling-broker, takes his place in the tribune. He is a cool, solf -posseted, good-looking man, with a keen eye, rosy cheeks, and hair parted in the middle. On either side of him sits a clerk one bald and dark, the other hirsute and blonde. No time is lost in preliminaries; an eloquent wool auctioneer would be an intolerable nuisance, and this one is as sparing of words as a tele gram from China. Every buyer before him is the busiest of men, and he has to sell a hundred thousand pounds worth of wool be fore six o'clock. "Lot 213, 10 bales," ho says. Simple words, but the signal for a very tempest of excitement. From every part of the room come; as it were, scattered shots in quick succession "Eight,half, nine, ten, ten-half." Then up spring a dozen, or it may be a score, of eager, earnest men, who shout passionately at the top of their voices, and almost in chorus, "Ten-half, ten-half, ten-half, ten-half," until it seems almost as if the roof would split. Some stretch their arms toward the tribune, as if they were threatening a foe; others work them to and fro, as if they were engaged in mortal com bat; others, again, raise them upward, as if they were appealing to heaven. They yell still more loudly, gesticulate still more wild ly,some in their excitement bending forward until they nearly topple over on the seats below. It is a bear garden, a Babel, a scene of indescribable confusion, and to the unini tiated spec tator it senjs as. it the. fouilic bid ders weie about to spring from their pliices and punch each others' heads. But tho auc tioneer speaks one word, and the storm is stilled; every voice is hushed, every man re sumes his seat. That word is "Tomkins." The lot has been knocked down to Tomkins. Without drawing breath, the selling broker goes on to the next lot, and then there is another startling roar,followed by an equally sudden collapse The faces of some of the bidders are a study. One gentleman, with a bald head, surrounded by a fringo of black hair and features unmistakably French, gets so excited that you fear he may break a blood-vessel or have a fit of apoplexy. His wide nostrils quiver, his swarthy face be comes dark red, he fights the air with his arms, and hurls his bids at the auctioneer as if he would annihilate him. Near the Gaul is a fair Teuton, stalwart and tall, shouting offers as if he were crying "Vorwarts!" in the smoke of battle and glaring at his com petitors as if he would like to charge down upon them as the Uhlans charged down on the French at Gravelotte and Sedan. Not far from the foreigners sits a gentleman whose cast of features and style of dress leave little doubt that he is a manufacturer or wool stapler, and hails from a northern county. To make his bid more effective he puts one hand to the side of the mouth and gesticulates with the other, but he needs no artificial aid, for he has a voice of thunder and shouts like a Boanerges. But why all this noise; why cannot a wool auctioneer knock down his wears to the highest bidder, like any other auctioneer? There is the rub; the difficulty is to "spot" the highest .bidder. All the firms represented at the auction know to a fraction the value of every parcel they wish to acquire, and fivo, or ten, or a score, as tho case may be, are willing buyers of a certain lot at, let us say, a shilling a pound more they cannot afford to give. The rule is, when there are several bidders at the same price and there generally are several bidders to prefer the one who bids the first, who is practically the one who first succeeds in attracting the auctioneer's atten tion. In such a contest the feeble-voiced have no chance, and the loudest shouters are the most likely to come out victorious. When the selling broker names the buyer who has caught his ear, all the rest subside like would be orators in the House of Commons who fail to catch the speaker's eye. The confi dence in the auctioneer's impartiality seems to bo absolute; he never loses his self-possession and time is too precious to be wasted in wrangling.
