Colonel William M. 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
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.
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.

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. -

"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

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
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
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
"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
"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
"I suppose you. think that the man who
owns the building lets me occupy this flat for
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
There was no way of arriving at that con
"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

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

"I am a man who attends to his busi

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

of several buildings and kicked down the
stairway of adversity.
"Yes, sir, I have. I tell you that suc

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
