Philadelphia Importer Hare Had Msougk

rmtADicTJ > nit Feb rblladelphla fanci
ers have had their first experience with the
McKinley bill and arc erring enough Had It
come earlier when ono or two birds or even
a halt dozen were Involved there would have
been tome chance for preparation and
the tax would not have been so heavy
but with 3 cents per pound levied upon an
Importation ot nearly 300 birds and all but a
few heavy weights It comes as hard as It was
unexpected And the more so as the steam
ship arrived before Its time and with non ot
the owners at hand to remove their btrJn from
the travelling cages the weight in some In
stancss was coop and all
The birds war 114 Indian games consigned
to hit D 0 Thornton of Oak Lane a Crave
Coeur cock two La F1che cockerels and four
pullets for Charles Oammerdlnger of Colum
bus Ohio a trio of white Molars for Klntsr ft
Co DtllsbnrR and two buff Cochin pullets for
the Bwathmore yards at Bwatbmore All but
the Indians were consigned toJ 1 Nevlus of
this city
The birds are exceptionally fine the double
lacing on some of the Indian games being per
fect The Crevo Coenr cook Is the winner at
both Jersey and Guernsey shows and the
cool of the Malay pair sent by Mr Brantford
Secretary of the English Malay Club Is said to
bo the best in all Jiialand The buff Cochins
are from the yards ol Mr Bcrlven England
and from her matchless cock strain
There hits been considerable bungling over
the Interpretation of the clause in the MoKln
lov bill relative to live stock and much hard
feeling has resulted because some have boon
mulcted while others have gone free
the first to be atfeoted by the new conditions
were the Messrs Sharp < t Co of Lookpori N V
upon an Importation of several hundred Indian
games imported for breeding purposes It
was supposed they would be passed but the
authorities wete Inexorable and for several
days the department had a show ot
Its own of the best of the variety that
could be purchased In England waiting
for the payment of the So tier cent called for
In schedule U under the bead of Animals Alive
This after enumerating the quadrupeds known
as domesticated adds All live animals not
specially provided for In this act ad valorem
20 per cent entirely Ignoring tine clause ot
Birds and land and water fowl free
The Messrs Sharp protested against the 20
per cent us their importation represented
many thousands of dollars and the 20 per
cent BO they aid took oil all the profits and
they claimed the right to pay only three cents
per pound as called for in section U Poultry
live per pound three cents dressed per
pound five cents this claim was accepted
notwithstanding tbe fact that their papers were
regular In showing beyond a doubt that the
birds wore imported for breeding purposes
That there are officials who read onlyclause
9 U beyond question as Adam Thomp
son ot Amity Mo writes to the Engllih
fancttrt Uateltr Tha Indian game ship
ped on Doc 20 to me br Mr Booth
Wnddlngton Chesterfield by steamship
Queen arrived In line order and all as fat It
not more BO than when they were shipped
from Liverpool Thin Is tbo second shipment
this vast season and I wan happily disappoint
ed in not having any duty to pay on this last
lot after reading the McKinley bill and notices
of other importers luck
The new rendering the bill under Which
the tax was levied upon the birds by the steam
ship Ohio to this port was If for breeding
purposes a paper showing four generations
furnished would establish the claim as
thoroughbred In the absence ot this they are
to be treated as market fowl and taxed 3 cents
per oound and as likely as not be weighed
in their travelling hampers Papers could be
made out and Probably will be to suit this
purpose that will pass with the officials but
they will be of little value to those who know
This is I the first tax Philadelphia importers
have been called upon to par for live stock for
breeding purposes
Another Etabllh > entAdopt ItIt Opel
nIbs In Enejland and Prance
The proprietors of a large manufacturing es
tablishment in Brooklyn have recently adopt
ed the system of profit sharing with their em
ployees not with all of them but with such a
ha o proved themselves to be most serviceable
In the business These employees get Interest
at the annual rate of C per cent upon one or
more of the shares of the company that may hi
assigned to each of them and it they remain
with the firm for ten roars become the full
owners of those shares A SUN reporter con
versed with tbe head of the firm on the aubjeor
lie said that the system had worked well
since the davit was adopted and that it gave
promise ot being advantageous to concerned
fn It The profit sharers bad become more vigi
lant In the performance ot their duties more
watchful in preventing wastage In the factory
more careful in their personal habits and
more desirous of securing the success of the
business They get the same wages that bad
previously been paid to them and several of
them ore very sure of getting from I2UO to MdO
more as profit at the end of this year They
themselves are very well satisfied with the ar
rangement that haft been made and those in
the establishment who have not been nut on
the roll of profit sharer know that they can
have their names put there in time by render
ing faithful service
There are good reports from several other
establishments mercantile and manufactur
ing In Brooklyn and New York that have
adopted the profit sharing system
The London lone of the 7th instant dis
cusses the question ot profit sharing while
giving some facts from an official report on
the subject that Is to be Issued as a parlia
mentary paper This report makes reference
to fortyeight profitsharing firms properly so
called One ol them dates back to 1869 one to
1876 one to 1877 one to 1B78 one to 1880 A
majority ot the firms have come tn during the
last two years and twentyone of the number
as late as 1890 This U proof of the increas
ing Interest felt In the subject on tbe part ot
the commercial community Great Britain
ami there Is a prospect of the extension of me
system to new Industries on account of its
success In many ot those cases In which It has
already been tried The i < bnt describes the
complex method by which the workmen of the
London South Metropolitan Gas Company se
cure a share of the profits of its business In
addition to their regular wage It also de
