What Protection Did* The last special report of Ira Ayer, special agent of the treasury department, relative to the production of tin and terne plates in the United States, affords a striking exhibit of the wonderful, growth of the industry in the six years eince the passage of the McRinley law made It possible to undertake its development In this country. The opponents of any duty whatever on tin plates were positive that .we could not make them In fhev United States, and sneered at the contention that we could. When the mills began to go up and tin plates was being made th? infant Industry was even denied by these gentlemen and it wasn't until treasury statistics were issued showing what had been accomplished the first year that they were convinced that the tariff had actually begun to do wliat Its friends predicted it would do. So manifest was thia to them that, when they gat in power, pledged to repeal the duty, they did not dare go to the full length, and merely con ton ted themselves with reducing thf rates. This did not kill the industry, but It embarrassed it, and re suited in a reduction of wages to meet the tariff reduction. Mr. Aycr's report, showing the production of tin anil terne plates during the last fiscal year, ending June :iO, 1896. given some interesting figures. Tlie total production of commercial plates was 307.228.fi21 pounds against 193.801,073 pounds the previous year, being an increase of more than 08 per cent. More than 98 per cent of this production was made from sheets rolled in the United fstat^j". The report shown also that there were lifty-thrce firms engaged in the manufacture of tin plat?, and that there was consumed 10,580,110 pounds of American tfheet Iron and steel by stamping and other manufacturing lirms In artlolcs and wares whldh were afterward tinned. The total black plate production was 334,014,798 pound J. The rapidity of the growth of this Industry. Which our free trade friends freely 'predicted could not posalbly be established in thin country, can be fully realized when we come to compare last year'*? production with that of the llrst year after the birth ??f the industry on the passage of the McKinlcy bill in 1890. That year the total production of tin and terne plates was I3.fl46.719 pound*. The following year, under the name law, it wa? 99,819.202 poundn. The third year it was 139.323.467 pound . For the yoar ndlng June 30. 1895. It was 193.801,073, and for last year the figures are a;? given ] above. | It will thus be sec n thai there has been a sieaay anir rapiu nnvuiupwvut vi industry which did not exist in the United states until William McKlnloy insisted, In the face of the protests nnd tidvorso predictions of tho free trade leaders, that it could and .should exljt. The faot that when the free 'traders (fot (he power, although they had made the tin plate duty a special objoct of attack In their carnpnhrI). thoy did not dar^ repeal It. but could only reduce It, was an admlunlon that It was accomplishing the object It was deslffnr-d 1*? accomplish. The thousands of workmen to whom Iho industry had fflven a new employment have boen made to suffer by the treo trade attack on the fostering law, but the Industry the froo traders tried ?o hand to prevent, by the application of J their favorite theory, ha? como to stay nnd will continue -to grow, another living I evidence of the wisdom of t'he Republlcon doctrine of protection. It la n strlk-1 IjmBT example of the practical application , of a business proposition knocking out a theory.

It is peanut politics. Old Iroiialdea. A proposition is pending before Con(rresB to move the old bustle frigate Con stitution from Kittery, Maine, to the navy yard at Washington, to be used as a naval museum. The movement, which i will undoubtedly be successful, has, l awakened a great deal of patriotic eentiment both in and out of Congress. Representative Fitzgerald, of Massachusetts, latit week jjresented a petition from the Massachusetts Historical Society asking: that Congress take some action for the preservation of tJhe historic old vessel, about which there clusters such hallowed memories. In speaking on the subject Mr. Fitzgerald declared that it should not be necessary to call the attention of the government to It* duty with regard to the preservation of the Constitution, "whose great victory in the naval engagement with the Guerriere in the dark days of the war of 1812 brought hope and encouragement to our people and placed the United States among the first-class powers of the world." The suggestion that the ship shall be used U3 a naval museum is a good one and should be acted upon. Such a use is made by Great Britain of Nelson's flag ship Victory, which is 'held in great reverence by Englishmen. "Who shall a ay," said Mr. Fltzgeraia, mat me iu?? old Constitution, with her unbroken lino of victories, unparalleled in -the history of the world. Is not worthy of like respect from a grateful republic?" It was when the destruction of the old vessel was ordered In 1829, that the great poem of Oliver Wendell Holmes saved her from the fnte that had been decreed, and she was preserved, and now when a similar fate is threatened the eloquence of another New England man is lifted in her behalf. Every school boy Is familiar with Holmes' lyric, "Old Ironsides." Ay, tear her tattered ensign down I Long lias It waved on high. And many an eye lias danced to sea That banner In the sky. Beneath it rung the battle shout, And burst the cannon's roar; Tho meteor or the ocean air Shall sweep the clouds no morei Iler deck, onco red with heroes' blood, Where knelt tho Vanquished foe. When winds were hurrying o'er tho flood, And waves were whlto below. No more shall feel the victor's tread, Or know tho conquered knee; The harpies of the shore shall pluck Tho eagle of the sea! Oh. hotter that her shattered hulk Should sink beneath the wave; Her thunders shook the mighty deep, And there should b? her grave. Nail to the mast her holy flag, Sot every threadbare sail, , And give her to the god of storms, The lightning and tho gale! Let "Old Ironsides" be preserved by all means. It would be a disgrace to let her suffer the flate of decay In the harbor where she has remained for so many years. As a naval museum at the national capital she can be put to good use and at the same time always remain an ob ject of rcverence to ine inou?n?o ui Americans who visit Washington every year. The legislature will get down to business this week. With the appointment of the committees the "machinery of both houses will be set in motion and we may look for a business-like session. \V. & L. E. Receivership. The appointment of a receiver for the Wheeling & Lake Erie railroad, while not unexpected, nevertheless create*! nulte a Hurry in railroad circles and in Wheeling has been the subject of general discussion. The action taken is attributed by the officials to several causes, among which are low rates on coal, inaction in iron Industries and the general business depression that has prevailed by reason of the unsettled State of the commercial world during the past year. These things undoubtedly contributed to the bad state of tho road's financial affairs during the past six months and the collapse was Inevitable. President Malr. In speaking of the causes which led to the receivership, states that the demoralization in ratc? in the bituminous coal trade has been unprecedented. Coal has be?*n carried and sold at ruinous rates. The Iron ore carrying trade has also been greatly depressed and the road found Itself subjected to heavy losses of business in consequcnce. Mismanagement does net pnem to have had anything to do with the state of affairs. The road has simply been a victim of circumstances over which It had no control. It Is welcome news, in eonnnection with the development:* that the business of the Wheeling & Lake Erie will continue uninterrupted and without change. It is hoped that tinder the receivership matters may be so adjusted that the affairs of the road may be conducted without future loss. With a revival of business. such as is confidently hoped for In the near future*, may come a rehabilitation of the corporation and IU interests, and n cessation of the ruinous rate war which Is proving so disastrous to all of the soft coal road*. | Texas wants a cabinct place and she I wjills it bad.

The plate lias good cabinet material, but there are other southern states more deserving of recognition atthla time, West Virginia, for Jnntancc. In the death of Hon.

His death will be Klncerely mourned by the entire community, wltli the interest;* of which ho was 6-0 closely Identified for many years. It 1s generally understood now that the Cuban question will be left for 'the McKinlcy administration to deal with, unless -the whole trouble Should be sooner settled by Spain granting the reforms promised to Cuba. I t was almost a touoh of spring yesterday. A Httle unseasonable, however, and for that reason not a thoroughly appreciated nsit might have been. It In seml-ofllclally announced that the reform* in Cuba will be promulgated on i ho birthday of the young king of Spain, which occurs on the 17th of Mny. it Jh u pity, that the anniversary of the kinglet ? daren't come earlier.

REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR I wonder how,the ministers know the Sunday newspapers are so bod. A child curries its new-found happiness to the one it loves best; u woman to the one she hates most. As soon as ? man gets his first gray hairs ho begins to boast to his wife of the business worries he has. The real reason why women like cats is probably because they don't often track mud all over the lloor. After a girl gets married she never gets off her olfl Joke about cigar ashes keeping moths out of the carpet. When a girl looks so happy when she gets her engagement ring she is thinking how she will enjoy showing it to another girl. A gir! likes to believe a man Is absentminded so she can have an excuse for taking care of him. A woman's real liking for a minister Is generally based on the fact that he makes a beautiful prayer. If there is anything in spiritualism, a husband whose wife has got married again must feel like an actor who has died too far out when the curtain falls. When, a girl tells you about nil the other men who used to c*ll on her before you did and mikes fun of thorn, she always begins by saying she wouldn't say ntich thinirs to jinvonn but von.

HAWLEY BEPLTS To "Single Standard"?Claims mm >iai Nothing Inconsistent Id His Plan. To tho Editor of the Intelligencer. SIR:?By a publication In your paper of the 16th signed "Single Standard" he appears to think my article on coinage, published In the Intelligencer of the 15th, shows Inconsistency, and that its conclusion is not In keeping with the main argument, and he appears to call for information or explanation. There la no inconsistency in my article, and the two paragraphs quoted by "Single Standard" are certainly in harmony without even a shade of conflict, and every effort to explain them seems like trying to explain wftat cannot be more plainly stated, and casually reading them over seems to demonstrate their harmony and consistency. In my article the ideas sot forth were about qs follows: First?We must have in our coinage one single standard unit of value. Seoond, the standard unit of value should he the dollar. Third, the dollar standard unit of xalue should be coined of the prooioun metal most stable in value, and least subject to change. Fourth, all other monies, be they dollars, or fractions of dollars coined by the government from any kind of metal, shall when coined contain intrinsic metal value In keeping with the established single standard dollar. Now, so lone us the covernment coins money from different kinds of motn.1, it may bo troublesome to maKe and keep all kinds of coinage In accord, but by the use of the single standard we .reduce this trouble to a minimum, and prevent the ocourrence of a deficiency of value between the different coinage, or at leant keep such 01 deficiency at a minimum. Under this plan It is not contemplated that the government would bay silver or Issue sliver certificates; far from 1t; and if under this plan silver coinage should become so heavy and cumbersome as to cause serious trouble, then the trouble could be depended upon to work Pts own cure, without apprehension of loss, or serious disturbance. But best of all of the results of the plan I have tried to enunciate are the facts, that If at all times (as would be required by my plan) a full gold dollar's worth of silver would have to be put into e.v-'h dollar of silver coinage, then thera would be no undue clamor or pressure to ooin silver, and only eo much would be coined as would be needed and wanted for olHerniation, because then ostensibly, and really, and properly, silver would be worth Just the same coined or uncoined, and thus the silver craze, or trouble, would be cured by simple common sense treatment. Therefore It seemt* to me that under this plan possibly free coinage might be a reasonable reality. JAMES L. HAWLBY. Wheeling, W. Va., Jan. 16, 1897. State of Ohio, City of Toledo, Lueas County, ss.
