Paper Monopoly.
[New York Herald.]
The high price of paper, Dext to the high
price of bread, is perhaps the burden most
felt by our community. An American can
just as well go without a meal as without his
newspaper. Whatever tends to increase its
cost and put it beyond his reach will there
fore always be a subject of indignation with
him. In our long experience of journalism
we have never knowu any grievance which
has more enlisted popular sympathy or which
continues to furnish a topic of such earnest
remonstrance.
There is nothing to justify the exorbitant
prices maintained by the American manufac
turers. The rise in the price of rags has been
seized upon as the pretext for them. Making
all due allowance for this, it does not afford
any reasonable ground for the rates charged.
Even if the manufacturers had no other stock
to work upon than rags, they are out of all
proportion. But when it is known that in
the sedges, reeds and coarse grass, covering
thousands of acres in the immediate vicinity
of New York, there is to be found a most ex
cellent paper stock which cau be made ready
for use within forty-eight hours, at the
small cost of three cents a pound, the prices
exacted become still more inexcusable.
We have seen specimens of this stock made
simply by the use of a pestle and mortar, and
can pronounce it as good as any that we have
examined. Let us add that a still further
economy is effected in its use by the fact that
beforethe manufacturer can turn bis rags into
paper they undergo a loss of at least thirty
five per cent, or one third, in the process of
conversion. This makes the cost of his stock
fifteen cents per pound, or equal to five
times the cost of the material to which we
refer.
The American manufacturers will not even
experiment with this or other substitutes for
the stock which they use, because they are too
well satisfied with the profits that they are
making to hazard their introduction. Tue
effect of this selfish and narrow minded policy
is beginning to manifest itself in the intro
duction ot Belgisn and other foreign papers.
There can be no greater proof at once of the
blindness of our paper makers and of the fol
ly of the protective system than the fact that,
in spite of the high duties charged on it, for
naper is competing successfully with
>me8tic article. Most of the book pub
lishers and several of the leading newspapers
are now beginning to use it. Unless, there
fore, a material reduction in price is made by
the American manufacturers, it is clear that
they will soon be driven out of their own
market.
Chances of Life.
An old document contains some interesting
information unknown to many, and rarely
encountered in the papers. Among other
things, it contains a table exhibiting an aver
age age attained by persons employed in the
various popular professions of the day. In
this particulai. as in most others, the farmers
have advantage over the rest of mankind, as
their average is sixty-five. Mext upon the
docket tome the judges and justices of peace,
the diguity of whose lives is lengthened to
sixty-four. Following then, immdiately in
the category of longevity, is the bank officer
who sums up his account at the age of sixty
four. Public officers cling to their existence
with as much pertinacity as they retain their
offices—they never resign their offices but life
forsakes them at fifty-six. Coopers, although
they seem to stave through life, hang ou un
til they are fifty-eight. The good work of
the clergymen follow them at fifty-five.
Shipwrights, hatters, and lawyers, and rope
makers (some very appropriately) go together
at the age of fifty-four.
The “Village Blacksmith,” like most of
his cotemporaries, dies at fifty-one. Butch
ers follow tbeir bloody career for precisely
half a century. Carpenters are brought to
the scaffold at forty-nine. Masous realize
their cry of “Mort!" at the age of forty-sev
en.—Traders cease their speculations at for
ty-six. Jewelers are disgusted with the tin
sel of life at forty-four. Babers, manufactu
rers, and various mechanics die at forty-three.
The painters yield to their colic at forty-two.
Thehrittle thread of the tailor's life is broken
at forty-oue. Editors, like all other beings
who come under the special admiration of the
gods, die comparitively young—they accom
plish their errand of mercy at forty. The musi
cian redeems his last note and plays his dy
ing fall at thirty-nine. The professional
dancer shuffles off his mortal coil at thir
ty-nine. Printers become dead matter at
thirty-eight. The machinist is usually
blown qp at thirty-six, The teachers usual
ly dismiss their scholars at the age of thirty
four, and the clerk is even shorter lived, for
he must needs prepare his balance sheet at
thirty-three. No account is given of the av
erage longevity of wealthy uncles.
The inference is fair, therefore, they are
immortal,
