lo clulm that the great reduction m tho
prices of cotton goods is due to protection
is an argument as lallaci . ns as to say thut
similar nnd equal reductiuiis in tin' prices
ol cotton goods In "Ireo trade" England
is due to the rotective, policy of these
it is a well known fact that wagon In tho
same period have advanced atnpropofj
pionalelv greater rale in "free trndo'
Kuglanu than tuey have in any of the
protected nations of the old world. The
only deduction lobo drawn from this well
known fact is that the icdiiclmn in tho
prices of cottongoods in these old coun
tries must bo due to two causes, tho im
proved mechanical appliances which have
liei n brought almost to n stngo ot perfec
tion, and to tho more economical methods
of manufacture, brought about through
the necossity of mooting sharper (ompeti
tiou from every euimtryin every Bald.
As to ihe nrwa ni cotton in Memphis in
I.M'iOund Isss the llgures show that if tho
siune conditions had existed in 1888 under
protection that existed in I860 undtf "free
trade," the Southern planter would have,
received about li cetils for his cotton in
Memphis in 1888,
The lirst feature in this condition is
shown iu tho euinpar.itivc production of
cotton in tho two years named. In I860
the production was 70 pounds per capita.
In 1888 it was 60 pounds. A production
of 70 puumls per capita in 881 would
have made a crop ol nvcr ",000,000 bnles.
Fveiy cotton planter knows what effect
mii h Crop sTOttld have hud on the price
of bin staple crop.
As it was, with a nO per cent, decrease in
the per capita prod ml inn the average
price ot middling cotton in .New 1 ork in
I sss was 1 cent lower than the average
ju ice in IsCsl; the avciage prices as pi veil
iiy the statistical bureau being respectively
10.H in 110 and d.s in lssH. In oilier
wnrds, on a ilecreiused 't capita prndtic
linn in lsHs tho cotton planter lost
cent a pound on his cotton, based on tho
Nl w York prices. So muchforlhu benell-
ceut iiilliiemsrs of protection.
Mr. Moure, the New 1 m k .Son and the
EnmmtiiM eliminate altognther the oll'ect
which .raiisxirtatlon ami other charges
have had upon the prices ol cotton in
M plus. In lhhii, according to Mr
Moore, the Memphis pneo w as s cents or
J.. I cents lower than tho .New l ork nrico
which was 10.S. In IHHH, when Mr. Moore's
"ledger account" was produced, Memphis
was pay ing within one-hall a cent ol the
.sew l ors price wnicn, ill isiss nveia.'en
U.S. II Hie PMXl average, 10.M, bad nil
in is,s,s, .vieiiiphiH lacluiH would have lieon
uhlo to p. n 10. J for middling uplands. The
planter, at a glance, can see that but for
tho aid ol decreased transsirlatiuii and
other charges Ihe Isaitntcuus blessings of
i.rilcetiun iii ISSS would have brought
him 74 cents for his middling cottons in
the Memphis market.
Another fsct tho high tariff economists
may louru by liguringttout isthut notwith
standing thoiiuinensedivrt'aseinthe prifjag
oicuttun cloths hruughtiilHiiit throiigb more
poilcct methods ol production, the prolei
tiun laws of the country have brought
about an annual export of $l'.',r0,ia
worth ol manufactured cotton against
au export of j .Ifu.iXKj.tsK) worth of raw cot
ton. This is tho work of twenty-eight
years ot protection.
On the other hand "free trade" F.uglnnd
imiairla JJ.ki.OtlO.OOO worth of raw cotton
and idler cluthiug her :17,000,IXX paopla
exports $.'llo.tsjo,ooo worth of msnufac

fact, Iho New York Economirt baa tho
hardihood to uphold the protection laws
with sit their restrictive inlluences, and
to berate iho pnllrv ol ' Ins?r trade aa
advocated bv Southern iilauters. which
would result iw tho cotton mills of
the South converting the fcr.ii.oon.fsxi
ttorlh ol raw cotton inio jisi,ixx,nixi wort h
of manufactured cotton, which would find
a naady market in the same ileitis where
Kngland yearly places 11.1,0110.000 worth
of manufactured coltou, the bulk of which
is received in its raw state from tho coltou
plantations of the South.
Is it wonderful that both the Southern
manufacturer and Southern planter want
to see a radical change made in the taf ill'
laws of this country.

Hia Return From Litile Rock
A Chance For Pryde
From reliable Information that reachel an
A I'l-KAi, reporter yesterday, Gov. 11. la Tay
lor did 1111 eminently wise thing in pardon
ing Oscar V. Waters.
Judge Dullose, If tho statements arc not
broken down, will alike distinguish himself
by coining down from his lofty perch of in
dignant rebellion and allowing Waters the
full benefit Oi Hie Governor's pardon.
The cose of Waters seems to be another in
which tho police have not figured with any
brilliant credit to themselves, especially W.
0. Pryde. Waters was first arrested for
assault and battery, and the police clinched
him by adding tho charge of vagrancy. The
assault and battery was sworn to by hiswifo,
a very pretty woman, with whom bo boardetl
at a house on Second stroct between
Mmlisun and Mnnroc. It grow out
of a jealous suspicion on the hus
band's part that Ins wife no longer
eared for him, but had allowed her af
fections lo go out tow nr I u handsomer man.
At all events the two have nut, It Is said,
lived together since, and the w no had tint Iho
least timidity in prosecuting him. Waters
was convicted, though tho prnuf in tbet'rim

that pastime here, is not known. ( IVt hafs
Detective Praxis can answer on that point
snd Is respectfully invited to, because eg.
something that will appear later.) Tho
prisoner was given a term in tho workhouse,
where he served four or live weeks, and es
caped. The next heard from Waters was through
1'ivde. He apiH'urcd before Atlorney tbii
erul l'elers and asked if he would get a
requisition for Oscar Waters, stating
thai he was at Little Rock. Knowing that
the man was only wanted to serve
nut sn unexpired workhouse sentence for an
offense that was no doubt severely pro

Charbstlno (8. C.) Correspondence uf Iba Nw York
A paragraph which hss been published
hero snd there recently to the effect that
Savannah prolsably had tho oldest wines
in America has brought to light the fact
that old residents of Charleston still hsve
a few dusty bottles in their wine cellars ol
the vintage of 1755. In fart, there is a
considerable quantity of wino in this city
over a century old.
While theru ran he no question that In
the cily of Savannah thorv have been large
quantities of old wine, especially Madeira,
in the bands of its no t. hauls and other
ritisens, preserved for their own consump
tion, it la probable that the custom of hav
ing supplies much more than sufficient for
immediate use among the well-to-do of the
city of Charleston wss even greater for
merly than in Savannah. This bad been
the case in colonisl times, and was an En
glish hsbit, for in Ihe last century tho
quantities of wines consumed in families
from dsv to day were vory jrrcst, and it
was therefore necasasary to keep the cellar
end gsrret well storked.
It wss then that tho Islsnd of Madeira
w .- producing (hose vsluahle vintages
w hich in tho middle uf the iiiueonl century
begun to diminish in quantity on sccount
of s disease ol the vine. This eventually
caused a total coaxial ion of its cultivation,
and very soon sfter prnaiwrity began to
dswn upon the infant colonies of South
Carolina snd tieorgis, and a Irads with
Madeira began, which lasted without in
terruption until the island ccsscd to pro
duce sny inoro wine. Madeira wine, when
now, is s strong snd fiery liquid, snd in
Lugisnd Ho manner of riispniug it wss to
send it on a voy ago in India and return
by the Cape of tioxad IIok, which fre
quently occupied sn entire year. Even
several such voyages wrre insufficient to
its thorough mellowing. Carolina or (ieor
