NEW TORK, April 2i.?>The Mall and
Express publishes the following correspondence
from EL C. Howard, a Boaton
staff representative:
The secretary of the national association
of wool manufacturers, Mr. S. N.
D. North, Is certainly as well equipped
as any man In the United States to discuss
with expert knowledge the present
condition of the wool Industry In this
country. Among his other duties, Cecretary
North prepares the Wool Book,
a manual of established value to the
trade and to Industrial science, and
publishes a quarterly entitled the
"Bulletin," which has existed longer
than any other industrial publication
in the country, and probably longer
than any other in the world. His pride
in these publications is warranted by
the constant pnd unsatisfied demand
for them in university libraries.
The 'picture drawn by Mr. James
Dobson, of Philadelphia, one of the
leading textile manufacturers of -the
world, is causing discussion among all
the journals of the textile trades, and
among none more than among those of
the woolen industry. The first question
I asked Secretary North, when I found
him in his commodious office on Kilby
street In this city, was if he could give
to the Mall and Express an official confirmation
of Mr. Dobson's estimate that
half the woolen looms In the country
are Idle to-day.
Are Idle Half the Time.
"That is a conservative estimate,"
Mr. North promptly replied. "It is not
strictly correct.to say that half the
looms are standing still all the time/ It
would be more exact to say> though It
amounts to the same thing, that all the
looms are standing still half the time.
1 mean that If you take* ull the few
looni3 that are yet running on full time,
" ' iirs* nmtilnf? nn
partial time and all the looms that are
not running at all, the result of the calculation
must be that half of the normal
capacity of the looms of the woolen
Industry Is not employed. I can give
you some official figure* to show what
tuis means to our wage-earners. In
1890 there were In this country In woolen
manufacture 25,000 broad looms, 29,050
narrow looms, 7,937 carpet loomstotal
66,487 looms. In that year the
average number of employes was 219,132.
That Is to say, the number of these
looms now running is only 33,243, and
the number of active employes Is only
109,561. In other words, nearly 110,000
would be wholly out of work were It not
for the qualification I haveanade, that,
broadly speaking, nearly all of these
looms are running and nearly all of
these wage-earners are working on
half-time. A comparison of the payrolls
for 1890 and 1896 will show more
clearly the result In 1890 the woolen
mills of this country paid their employee
176,660,742. It Is, I repeat, a conservative
statement that this total payroll
Is cutln two to-day. That Is a loss
to the wagfc-earners In the woolen Industry
of 838,320,371 a year."
Incidentally, Mr. North stated that
the total number, of employes In the
woolen Industry In 1890 was 219,132, so
that the earnings of that number of
workers, many of them heads of fam
ilie?. nave been cut one-hair.
It must be admitted that these figures
?re appalling. They mean that about
1,000,000 people are directly affected,
and that in the home woolen Industry
alone. Their Indirect effect upon all the
trades which these million people patronise
need only be suggested to show
that It Is incalculable. And at this very
moment the cable tells us that money is
so cheap in London city that oonsols ore
soaring and other securities command
enormous premiums. Truly, Great
Britain waxes fat over the Cleveland
policy of a revenue for deficit only.
Th* Tariff*! Chief Victims.
The reader may draw for himself the
appalling Inferences which Secretary
North's statistics suggest as to the effect
upon wage-earners in the woolen
Industry, and those dependent upon
them, of the paralysis of 50 per cent of
its normal product. Now, listen to Mr.
North's explanation of this disaster:
"The woolen industry hns suffered
more than any other from the WilsonGorman
tariff law.. All Industries have
suffered from the uncertainty as to our
future financial policy. From that
cause, woolen manufacturers have suffered
alike with those who make goods
of cotton or silk, with those who make
shoes and general supplies, nut from
the present tariff the woolen Industry
has suffered more than any other. This
is largely because the reduction of customs'
duties was followed by a fall In
the price of the raw material. This resulted
In a harder blow to the woolen
Industry than anybody had anticipated,
and perhaps than the framers of the
l?n-'rm (arm nuu nuenueu. iiit-itr iiua
followed an enormous Increase In Importations
or cheap cloths."
From the date upon which the present
tariff law went Into effect, a tide of
Imported woolens has surged into the
country, at the average rate of $5,000,000
per month, reaching the great total for
the year of $60,000,000 foreign value, and
having a duty-paid value of $5*0.000,000,
which Is about one-third of the total
value of all domestic wool manufacture#.
as reported by the census of 18fl0,
end Is considerably more than onethlrd
of the total value of our domestic
manufactures In 1S95. In view of the
extraordinary sltrlnkaireiln Invoice valuations.
and making allowance for undervaluations,
this total represents an
segregate quantity of woolens more
than double that which ever passed the
custom houses In twelve months.
The official reports of the treasury
bureau of statistics, so far as acreeslble,
sustain this statement. In cloths,
woolen and worsted, the Imports were
84,573.887 potind?, valued at $21,807,899.
for the first ten months of 1895. When
data nr* accessible for the whole calendar
year, this total will rise to 40,000.000
pounds, the largest Imports of any previous*
year having: been 16,380,000
poundr. In 1S90. The Increase over that
year la 141 per cent. It Is a fnlr conclusion
that another year of this tariff,
with Increasing foreign understanding
of It* possibilities, will show a still larger
proportionate Increase in woolen imports.
effecting ft corresponding reduction
In domestic production.
"The chief mischief wrought us by
the Wilson-Gorman tariff," continued
Secretary North, "in In Its taking off
specific duties, and. under the ad valorem
system. letting In sn enormou*
quantity of cheap stuff*, not made of
pure wool. These cheap Importations
have crowded our home markets, and
have foroed down the value of our domest
In goods, made of pure wool. The
resulting competition has cut b<?th
ways, it has cut the market for highclass
good*, and it has invited our manufacturers
to cut either their standard
or .their prices to compete with these
cheap Importation*."
Mr. Nortn furnished the following description
of these cheap Imported
cloth**, which affect the whole community
of liuyorfl, nn well an the home
manufacturer*:
"The cost of the material worked over
in these goods In frequently not ovr two
or three cents a pound. The Ailing yarns
are composed of refuse, in which cotton
nnd wool rug* and waste* have been
ground together Indiscriminately. Tiy
slow carding and the most careful spinning,
It Is possible to convert this refuse

vlt was Insisted with much vehemence
while the present tariff waa under consideration.
that the One effect of Its
adoption would be to enormously reduce
the qu tity of shoddy worn by our people;,

away ?Ith the use of wool substitutes
altogether, by making wool so cheap
that everybody could afford to wear-allwool

with them."
Idl* Looms In ProrUUne*. fT
also called on Mr. Charles Fletcher,
of"Provldence, president of one of the
largest woolen factories In the world.
I asked Mr. Fletcher' whether the
.statement, published In the Mall and
Express on the authority of Mr. James
Dodson, of Philadelphia, that half of the
looms in the seventy-flve woolen mills
In and near Providence are Idle, was
correct.
"Yes," Mr. Fletcher replied, "that
statement Is within the mark. It Is a
conservative estimate to say that 60 per
cent of the capacity of the woolen mills
of Rhode Island Is standing still, and
the worst of it Is that the percentage will
Increase Instead of diminish. It would
not be correct to say that 50 per cent of
the employes are Idle, but hearly all of
them are Idle half the time. That Is to
say, the men are working only three or
rour days a weeK?in room cases oniy
three days. That means that they are
earning only 50 per cent of ftjelr normal
wages. I wouldn't like to estimate u lth
any pretense to accuracy the average
normal wage of an adult woolen worker;
but, ussumlng It to be 32 a day, or 912
a week, you can truthfully say that such
a man cannot earn now more than 96 a
week. That, mind you, Is for skilled
adult labor."
"Hart this caused great distress In
Rhode Island?"
"In many cases it has. For example,
not all the mills are running, even on
half tlm*?. Some have shut down entirely,
throwing the heads of hundreds of
families into the street In enforced idleness.
Why. only the other day the Kaxton
Worsted Company was forced to go
out of business entirely. And for what
reason? Not for any fault in management*
not for any lack of business enterprise
or sagacity, not for any deterioration
of plant. It was not one of the
largest mills, but it was one of the best
equipped In the United States, with the
finest machinery, turning out a good
product, which ranked high In the woolen
market. The simple trouble was
that the mill had no work to do. I have
heard that the company, In the effort to
keep Its mill running, for the principal
purpose of giving work and wages to its
employes, has lost since 1893 over J200,000;
Now, those figures concern another
company's affairs and I don't vouch for
their absolute exactness; but that 'is
what is generally understood. Other
mills have shut down and others must.
They have continued to run at a loss,
until they can't stand the strain any
longer. Of course, all this meant} 50 per
cent reduction In the average pay rolls
r>t nil th? mllln that nrc ittll rtinnlnir.
but it means also the total suspension of
pay rolls of mills that have been and
will be forced to stop entirely."
Ko Buyer* In Sight*
Mr. Fletcher went to an Inner office
and returned with a letter In his hand.
"I will read you this letter," he said, "on
condition that you do not publish the
names." The letter was addressed to a
prominent commission house In Boston,
which represents some of the largest
woolen mills in the country. It was
written from Chicago by an expert who
had been sent out there to investigate
the condition of the western market for
woolens. The letter stated that the
market Is In a dreadful condition. There
were no sales at any value. Nobody
was buying, even at less than the cost of
production. J^arge wholesale dealers In
woolens, the writer said, would willingly
talk by the hour, explaining why they
could not place any order^ .The nub of
their reason was that they could not buy
from others when nobody 'would buy
from them. The writer advised his Boston
firm to in turn Inform the mills they
represented not to put any more material
Into their looms for the coming season,
as they would And no market for
their product If they made It
Mr. Fletcher continued: "That Is only
a typical letter. The same report Is repeated
from men who travel In all centers
of trade, east aw well as west. These
reports disclose Jthe Immediate trouble
with the woolen industry, which Is that
there are no buyers. Now, why are
there no buyers? Because they are supplied
with cheap foreign goods. The
figures of Importations since Cleveland
came In of woolen goods from England,
France and Germany tell the story. We
can't keep these foreign goods out under
the present tariff. By the use of shoddy
und Inferior wools these foreign mills 1
can turn out about twice the yardage at
half the cost. Why, the whole country
Is being clothed In revamped mgs,"
burst out Mr. Fletcher Indignantly. !
I asked him how he accounted for the
repeated reports In Democratic and
mugwump Journals of a revival of the
domestic woolen Industry.
"That, If I may use a vulgar term. Is
all rot." It Is largely outright misrepresentation.
It contains the fraction of
a truth?and. part truth, you know, Is
worse than outright lying?because
dres9 goods for women have not suffered
so much, (is a domestic product, as have
woolens for men. You may bo very
hard up. You may not be able to buy a
suit of clothes for yourself. But It 1a a
part of our American character that you
know perfectly well that whatever happen.1*
your wife must Imve a new dress.
And she Rets It, even against her tinsel,
fish protest. A human sentiment like,
that has a commercial efTect. Hut that
doesn't lessen the facts and figures,
which ydli can obtain from the bent authorities,
that half the woolen looms In
the country are Idle. More would be
Idle If the manufacturers responded to
the ??xact conditions of the trade. 1 don't
want to make tile woolen manufacturers
pose as philanthropists In any fal*e
sense. Hut how can they close their
mills and throw Into Idleness and starvation
thousnnrls and thousands of lion- m
est, thrlfy, faithful employes? Reduc- tlon
of wages jron't help us. Why, there
was a cut In wages of about 1 to IB per
c*n t when the present tariff wont Intd effect.
That has helped us some in keeping
the mills going, but if another cot J
of 10 per cent were possible?and It Isn't *
- that would not enable us to keep these t
choap Importations out of our market.
"Now, I don't want to talk politics
when I am talking nbout business." continued
Mr. Fletcher, "but nobody can J
deny that It Is politics, and Democratic politics,
that has caused our troubles.
When the Democrats came In with a whoop
In ISM they seemed to have a 1
