"In consequence of this, manj thousands

few j ears ago have their existence endan
gered, and employers are in a critical po
sition It is self-evident that our clothing
and textile manufacturing classes arc not
satisfied with a continuation of the preent
trade treaties with foreign nations What
we need above all other things is a change
by which the almost prohibitive tariff rates
of these countries should be reduced by at
least one-half. Most important for our
line is a rectification of our trade relations
with the United States. Little concessions
here are of no value; the prerent United
States duties on textiles and clothing must
be lowered if we are to become enabled to
continue our exports."
Commenting on the speech, Mr. Hapauer
"It is strange that our manufacturers In
the clothing and cloak trade have not as
jet made efforts to gam foreign markets
for their productions' They are In this re
spect far behind other branches of manu

sults as our cotton textiles, Iron, and steel,
machinery, office furniture, etc."
CHRYSANTHEMUMS EN" LYONS.
Two TlionnantL Vnrletlcs Seen
"At the chrysanthemum exhibition which
has been in progress in this city during
the last two weeks, two thousand different
xarieties were exhibited by fifty horticul
turists in and around Lyons," writes Con
sul J. C. Covert to the State Department.
"A prominent exhibitor places the number
of distinct xarieties cultivated in France
at from eight to ten thousand. They are
kept in large houses open on all sides, but
roofed to prevent damage from rain. They
flower in November in great variety of
form of petal. It js-said here to be extreme
ly difficult to produce two different shades
of exactly tEe same form; therefore, the
exhibition is exceedingly rich in x'ariety,
leaves of tubular Shape, fiat, pointed,
rounded at the end. curved in and down at
the sides, with ascending and descending
points, undulating, etc., being shown.
Some plants were ofer thiee feet high,
bearing but three large flowers. One plant
bore fifty blossoms.
"Every horticulturist in and around Ly
ons has now at least one thousand to ono
thousand five hundred different varieties
of chrysanthemums. They are sola as
house ornaments, and are very largely used
in decorating graves. Many thousands of
them are sold on All Saints' Day and the
