WDUNENDAYs APRIL 23. 1884. The DltKnlaed Free Trade Balt. Nobody disputes the assertion of the free trader« that importtnl articles of oonsuuiptiou would be cheai>er for the consumer under free trade than they now are. It iB admitted even that some of the actual necessaries of life would toe cheaper to the laboring man if the imjH)Ht duties now exacted were remov ed. But while making these admissions it must not be forgotten that there are two Rides to this very important question, anil these two shies are what causes the present agitation in the country at the present time. By re moving these impost duties we could have our teas, sugars, spices and possi bly bread studs cheaper than they now are but we might have them at a terrible cost to the producers and con Burners. The same may be said in regard to all imported articles that enter into mak ing our clothing. Happily, we have this (piestion fully demonstrated and worked out in countries where free trade or in other words no protection to home labor has been the rule. We need only refer to the free trade countries of Europe a9 an exemplifica tion of the evil effects of a system which is attempted now to be introduced in this country. We referred yesterday as one instance of this ruinous policy to the literally starved Jute operators of Dundee. Scotland, who were paid the wretched starvation wages of $2 and $2.60 a week. These laborers got food no doubt a little cheaper and clothing a little cheaper in Dundee than they could be got in Philadelphia, but what good does that do them with the miserably degraded wages they get ? So with the iron workers in Wales and the cotton mill operators of Liverp< ol and Manchester and the cutlery machinists of Sheffield. What if they hi somewhat cheaper than they are in Philadelphia ? With it all it cannot be denied that they are in a much worse condition so far as education and general comfort are concerned. What makes the difference, are we askid? We will tell you, intelligent inquirer. The, United States system of protection to American industries makes it. Scotland, England and Wales and other countries have to pay a duty to ih • United States before they can land tuelr manufactured articles at our cus manufacturers of provisions and clothing Tim - tom houses, these foreign countries are compelled to pay these duties, and f<> make up for them they oppress their labor. They could not compete with the manufac turers of this country unless they re duced the wages oftheir laborers. Now suppose this system of impost duties was abolished, as the Morrison tariff' hill intends that it shall be in a great measure, what would be the result ? Why, simply this : American manu facturers would be compelled, in order Europe, the cheap jute manufacturers ef Dundee, the iron manufacturers of Wales, the cotton goods manufacturers of Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester, to reduce the wages of their laborers to the same wages as those places. This is exactly how it would work. If this were not so, why are our shores crowd ed with immigrants from these manu facturing centres? It must be said of our American la borers in our manufacturing establish ments of whatever description, that though they may hayj to pay a little more for a pound of meat, a package of spices, a roll of muslin or a new suit or dress, than these things would cost in Jtree trade countries, they make more that! three times that difference in wages in this country. We do not nwy that wages are really what they ought to he here to iusure from every encroachment of want, and to secure every needed Comfort, but whatever they are, whet her higher ter than in free trade Europe Free traders point workingmen to the impost duties they pay on thq articles they use in household 'consumption. They show them that they pay a cent a yard more for muslin than they could get it for if there were no tariff'on if,but they never tell them that they get twice the wages here they would get in other countries. A hundred yards of muslin would last an ordinary family a year, and admitting there would be a cent a yard difference in price,it would only amount to a dollar. This difference is made up by a common day laborer in a single day's wages. Workingmen should understand that a reduction of tariff means a reduction If free trade brings to this vill also latter in dieaper living, rhat the Morrison tariff' bill will do, and in order to do this the bait of cheaper living is thrown out to catch the unsuspecting and draw them into eshes of Democracy and free lower, they are infinitely bet of wages, country cheaper living, it bring cheaper wages, but The larger proportion the This is the trade. The anxiety of the public to know who would l>e the next Chief ol have an opportunity Police will now to cool down, as Mayor Wales has tied the question by appointing Serge; n» Hugh McConnell Credit must be given to Mayor Wales for making an honest attempt to find a Chief who would give full satisfaction to the public in all possible respects. Beth H. Roaster, a genilenmn of irre proachable character, a Board of Health, and an ex-member of the City Council, could have had the position had he wanted it, hut his busi ness engagements prevented him from accepting it. ed amongst his force and found the man he considered filled the bill in trusty and tried Sergeant Hugh McCon Besides being a good appointment in every respect, it, is also i 'form, as the new Chief is set.* i the position.— member of the Mayor Wales then look II. the line f rivil Hervice perfectly familiar with all the duties of the office, having acted as Chief for the la at four weeks anil more. SF.iti.EAST MuConneu., the m wly appointed Chief of Police,having wisely chosen to he a teetotaler,and having t and felt the benefits of it, would vastly improve the morals of his force by in ducing every member of it to do as he does iri this respect. The day is coming when a total abstinence police force will he found to be as necessary ; tal abstinence employees on railroads to Babthquauh an beooani general all over the country, morning,staid, steady old England wan considerably jarred up, the people of Essex and Suffolk especially receiving the full benefit of a sudden ringing of church bells, the falling of a church spire and some chimney stacks. Yean ago it was considered that the islands the Mediterranean sea and the moun tainous countries of Mexico and Guate mala hail a monopoly of these sudden visitors that seemed to come right up through the earth without any Invita tion whatever. Hut of late years It seeniB that these earthquakes are taking a wider range,a few of them traveling along up the At lantic coast, travelers they visited England to show that the Britons are not exempt from these unwelcome visitors. Qg VTJ Tuesday is lier do in for Like other American A c.ood curb ami sidewalk do much to make a home desirable and pleasant. Under the late ordinance passed tiy Council requiring the money paid for Work doue to be paid back into the appropriation for curbing and pav ing, work can go ahead all the time, and if collections are closely made the appropriation will never exhaust it self—in fact, the more curbing and paving there is done and paid for, the more there will be to do other curbing and paving. There are hundreds of people who want curbing and paving done who will pay for it as soon as finished. They should not be allowed to wait long. City Council will meet this eveu ing to further consider the ordinance to permit the Delaware Western Rail road to cross Fourteenth aud Scott streets at grade. The question is one of considerable imiiortance, and should be well understood by all interested before the final vote is taken. Work or the Pistol asdilnb. While City Treasurer Arthur was st&ndiug at the window of his office in Heading, Fenua.,yesterday morning,an uuknown person flretl a bullet through the glass without hitting anyone. A similar attempt was recently made on the Principal ot the Boys' High School in Reading. Cornelius Schugrue has been arrested iu Chicago for the murder of his hostler, Bamuel Atkinson, in February last. Josheph Flynn and William Hale, roughs, engaged iu a shooting affray near Irving, Virginia, last Saturday. Flynn shot Hale through the heart, but before the latter fell he shot Flynn twice, indicting wouuds from which he died in a few hours. Charles Fike, an aged resident of Waukegan,Illinois,murdered his second wife on Sunday night by knocking out her brains with a club. The crime was not known until yesteruay morning, when Fike called in a ueigbor and con fessed it, saying he had quarelled with his wife about ihe disposition of some property He is so feeble that it is doubttul if he cun live to be tried. viyer Mascovitz, Jr., and Beke Wlr le, colored, have been arrested in Nashville for asha>sinatiug Meyer Frieduian, in ord» r to obtain $2,000 lor which be was insured in the American Legion of Honor. Friedman's wife is charged with being an accessory before the fact, Laving " sent her husband to meet bis death." In Boston, yesterday afternoon, James Nicholson entered a house in which bis separated wife was living with her brother, aud fired two pistol ihots ai her, lulling her on the spot. She was holding her infant in her arms at t he time, aud her husband tired the second and fatal shot while his brother in-law was trying to push him out of the room. jet ter I to French street wh.tr: ia the place for good clean coal.
