A starch factory is another enterprise pro
posed for Minneapolis. A new process of
manufacture has been perfected, whereby
from one bushel of wheat, one dollar and
forty-three cents worth ot starch, equal to
the celebrated Kingsford Oswego starch, can
be manufactured, and at a cost of three
cents per pound less than the lowest price
for which the above named article ever sold.
An advantage of the manufacture is the fact
that wheat, damaged by the wet weather, is
rust as good for manufacturing purposes.
The dampness affects the part from which
flour is produced, but not that which forms
the substance of starch.

Wendell JL'hillipit on Silver and Paper.
[Boston Globe.]
The silver-tongued orator, who in times
past maintained the anti-slavery cause with
such loyalty and courageous devotion, has in
these latter days championed with all his
old-time earnestness the opinions of the
greenback men. In the pleasant study at
his home on Essex street, the famous orator
personally one of the most genial and
courteous of mendeclared that he really
did not want to give any long opinion in re
gard to the new silver bill. "It's a step,"
said Mr. Phillips, "in the ripht direction.
This silver bill is a measure important not
so much in its own special provisions, but
as a sign of the growing feeling in the com
munity in favor of paper currency. In this
lies its significance and it is because of this
that the capitalists of Boston and of New
York so bitterly opposedit. I do not think
that, as a law this silver bill is
likely to have any serions effect
upon trade and I am quite confident that
the return of United States bonds from the
holders in Europe to this country will not
long continue. Viewed in the light of
equity, this act by which the silver dollar is
restored to the currency of the country
seems to me to be perfectly just, and to meet
all the obligations of the nation. In pay
ment of its bonds, whether sold at home, or
abroad, the silver dollar of 412% grains
must be regarded as a legal tender. The
government must pay in coin but it may
pay in gold coin, or it may choose to pay in
silver coin. During the war, when gold
stood at 200, interest was paid virtually upon
twice the sum of money originally invested
in bonds. Then the nation chose to pay in
gold. Supposing gold to have been but
ninety, it would have an equal right under
those circumstances to pay in gold. The
government simply agreed to pay the hold
ers of its bonds coin it did not guarantee
to either gold or silver coin an given
value, and it never gave up its right
of choice between those two kinds of
coin in making payments." Knowing that
Mr. Phillips had traveled extensively in the
West and the southwest, the reporter asked
if the feeling in favor of silver was so strong
as would seem from the action of the Repre
sentatives from these sections. "I should
say," said the lecturer, "that five-sixths of
the Western people are heartily in favor of
silvei the preponderance in favor of paper
money is not quite so marked, yet I think it
is not far from four-fifths, taking the West
through. Now the feeling in the South is
well known to be quite as strong, if not
stronger, in this direction, as in the West.
All this tends to show that the silver bill is
but the first of a series of measures which
will end in the establishment of paper cur
rency and which, steadly supported bv the
people of these two great sections, must pre
vail over all opposition. I believe in paper
currency," said Mr. Phillips, in closing,
"and so I am glad that the silver bill has
been passed."
An Awful Death.
[New York Sun.]
John Wilienbacher, employed in a sugar
refinery in Brooklyn, yesterday afternoon
stamped on the surface of a boneblack vat
through which the sugar is refined and which
continually sinks through a conical bottom
over a retort, the fires of which keep the
mass to a heat of 180 degrees. sank in
to the hot black mass. As he tried to lift
his feet out, he probably found himself drawn
down by the suction of the moving mass,
which wes kept up at a heat of 180 degrees.
His struggles probably only added to the
downward motion, and as a fireman
eutered to rake his fire, Willenbacher's
terrible plight became known. He had
then sank to his throat Men
ran from every part of the refinery, and the
endeaver to rescue Wilienbacher was ear
nestly begun. Nothing could stop the ceas
less downward suction of the boneblack, be
cause the hole at the bottom of the vat
opened into a retort filled with fierce flames.
Even the few seconds that were spared to
the consideration of this gave
confirmation to Willenbacher's doom,
for he sunk until the lower part of
his face was hidden. His comrades shouted
cheering words to him, and threw planks
upon the surface of the boneblack, the brav
est venturing out upon them. They scattered*
the boneblack from about Willenbacher's
shoulders, and, grasping him, tugged to pull
him out, but they could not stir him. He
seemed to be unconscious from suffocation.
A block was hastily rigged upon a beam
above the vat, and eager men grasped the
tackle in their strong hands and pulled well
together, but they did not move Willen
backer. The digging above the sinking
man was resumed, and the boneblack was
cleared away down to his thighs. Then
those who hauled with all their strength
upon the tackle raised Wilienbacher from
the boneblack. Kind hands laid him limp
and unconscious upon the planks. He was
breathing faintly, and a comrade ran to
summon a physician, but, while his feet
still sounded on the stairway, Wilienbacher
died. He leaves a wife and two children.

A. Wicked Republican Newspaper Excor
iates the Member from Minnesota, and
Shows Why Ought to Oppose Sub
[Chicago Tribune 14th.J
The Tribune yesterday published the flim
sy explanations made by Mr. Caswell, of
Wisconsin, of the reasons why he voted to
report the bill granting a money subsidy
from the Treasury to build Tom Scott's
railroad in Texas. The intellegent people
jot Wisconsin will reach their own conclu
sions as to the sufficiency of the reasons for
that and all other subsidies.
But however surprising may be the course
of the Wisconsin member in voting to build
a railroad through Texas at the expense of
the United States, the speech of Mr. Dun
nell, of Minnesota, also in favor of subsi
dies, will perhaps prove a greater surprise to
the people of that State. Some years ago,
when Congress spent several weeks trying to
vote a subsidy of $5,000 extra pay to each
member, and at the same time make no rec
ord of the names voting for the bill, there
was an unpleasant controversy as to how Mr.
Punnell voted upon the steal. The clerk
recorded Mr. Dunnell's name in favor of the
back-pay swindle, but subsequently Mr.
Dunnell denied the accuracy of the record.
The question of veracity has never been de
termined. In this case, however, Mr. Dun
nell leaves no room for doubt. He an
nounces his purpose to vote whatever sum
be needed to subsidize transportation com
panies to run steamships on the ocean, es
pecially to Brazil. That the people of Min
nesota may understand why they should be
taxed to enable a steamship company in
Philadelphia to run their steamers at the ex
pense of the treasury, we give so much of
the remarks of Mr. Dunnell as have come to
"Mr. Dunnell spoke in defense of the
consular system, which was not only self
sustaining, but actually brought $300,000 a
year into the treasury. He attributed partly
to want of consular agencies the decrease of
American commerce. He declared himself
in favor of voting government aid to Ameri
can commerce. Congress sullenly and
stupidly refused to give aid to commerce,
because the cry of subsidy was rung in its
ears. The great American question to-day
was, how American producers could reach
foreign consumers. He characterized the
impending tariff bill as 'the wooden horse'
overlooking the walls and threatening the
prosperity of the country. It was a direct
attack on the agricultural interests, and got
up in the interest of some little two-penny
manufacturing institution. He regretted
that there was a proposition to revise the
tariff, but its promoters were vastly mistaken
if they supposed they conld pass it. Re
turning to the question of subsidies, and re
ferring particularly to the Brazilian trade,
he declared himself ready to vote $100,000
or $200,000 to an American steamship line
to Brazil as having a tendency to revive
American commerce, for in its revival there
was increased protection to agricultural in
There was a convention of so-called "ex-
porters" recently held in Washington, and
the purpose of this convention was to urge
Congress to vote subsidies to build American
steamships, that these steamships might car
ry our products to foreign lands. The im
pression which these people, including Mr.
Dunnell, wish to create is, that there is a
difficulty at present in finding transportation
of American products to foreign countries
that the warehouses on the Atlantic and Pa
cific and Gulf coasts are filled to overflow
ing with the products of American industry,
unable to obtain transportation to the
other parts of the world, and that to
raise the blockade the government must
open the treasury and give money to private
companies to build ships, and thus relieve
suffering American industry in its efforts to
reach a market. Of course there is not a
word of truth in this. The means of trans
portation are vastly greater than the demand,
and ocean freights were never so low as they
have been during the last years. Boston,
nnable to furnish outgoing vessels with car
goes, has to send to New York to get goods
to fill up, and the Baltimore and Philadelphia
lines have never been troubled for want of
room to carry all that was offered them. The
great difficulty of American commerce is not
the means to export, but the products to
The United States produce a surplus of
cotton, breadstuffs, provisions, tobacco,
petroleum, and other yield of the soil, the
forest, and the mines. The United States
have, in addition, vast stores of iron, coal,
and all the raw material for an immense
manufacturing product, with an unlimited
supply of cheap food. While the producers
from the soil have immense surplus annual
ly,we think Minnesota alone last year had
a surplus of $50,000,000 of breadstuffs to
sell,the manufacturing producers have no
surplus to sell. A million of operatives that
have been employed in manufacturing are
now idle. With our fuel, our labor, our
cheap food, and row material, this country
ought to produce a surplus of manufactures
annually equaling in value that of our sur
plus agricultural products. Why do we not
do it? In the first place, the policy of the
legislation since 1860 has been to confine
manufacturing products to the mere demand
for home production, and to make good to
the capital invested in manufactures the loss
from short production by grant
ing subsidies or bounties from the
treasury. The exportation of American
manufactures has been regarded as a sort of
national calamity, to be avoided as some
thing worse than war, pestilence and famine.
The result has been that we have not had
and have now no manufactures to export.
The exportation of manufactures has been
practically prohibited, and wherever it has
been attempted, as during the last few years
with cotton goods, it has been done in vio
lation of the "American system," and in vio
lation of the whole legislative policy of Con
gross. We do not understand Mr.
Bunnell's reference to the tariff but if he
ever expects to have American manufactures
exported, and the ocean covered again with
vessels bearing the American flag, he must
rigidly reject all subsidies, and all bounties,
general and special, and. open wide the do-r
to all the people to buy and sell, and buy
and sell ships, wherever they can find a mar
ket) on the best terms they can obtain. In
the meantime, no taxation for subsidies.
