EFFECT OF TARIFF REDUCTION.
The following article from the
Chicago Journal of Commerce sets forth
so concisely the effect of a reduction of
the tariff, that we re-publish it, and
would ask the consideration of the read
ers of the Tribune to the ideas present
ed therein, and especially would we ask
those who may have been befogged by
the theories advanced by the free trade
One reason given by the free traders
for reducing the duties is that the
revenue may be reduced, but a moment's
consideration will show what a train of
evils must follow the reduction of duties,
while the revenue is in nowise reduced!
First, home manufactures must reduce
the price of goods or stop making, To
reduce the price of goods they must re
duce the cost. To reduce the cost they
must purchase raw material lower, pay
less for transportation, nay less for
labor, less interest on the mill property,
and, in fact, must come down to a lower
scale in every way. much below the pre
rata reduction on the duty, for there
will be less work where there is largei
importations. If labor must work
cheaper for the manufacturer and the
ore and other raw material producers,
then the laborer must live cheaper. He
must pay less for provisions, for house
rent, for everything he buys, and those
who raise provisions must sell cheaper,
as every manufacturer must do. If the
price of provisions is regulated by the
Krice and demand abroad, and there can
e no reduction in farm produce, then
the laborer and his family starve. Lower
duties do not bring less revenue. There
are fewer goods made at home and more
imported, and while the home mills are
idle the revenue is equally heavv, and
more money is sent out of the country
to make other nations more prosperous
and the home people poorer. If it is de
sirable to have less employment and
lower wages, less prosperous mines,
manufactories, and less prosperity in all
the little industrial towns, then a lower
uuiy is desirable. Another effect of
lower amies is to consume less provi
sions ana raw materia at I ,..,i
necessitate a larger export to foreign
vuuuuiBs, auu consequently at lower
prices, wnicn in turn enables foreign
manufacturers to make a sharnr emu-
petition. If it is desirable to sell wheat

That our foreign trade is recovering
irom the depression of the last year is
shown by the increased exportation of
the last few months. The value of grain
and flour expoi ted in February from this

than in the corresponding month of last

eight months has be gradual and notice
governor Butler has vetoed almost
every bill the legislature has passed
this session, and the Boston papers think
that body better adjourn and go home.
General butlor doubtless agrees with
the papers. The legislature refuses act

and he refuses to approve their laws. It is
a race to do nothing with Butler a little
About tho end of the present fiscal
year there will be a consolidation of in

to twenty collectors' districts will be

apple orchards are almost completely

the cause being the sudden cold snap

warning, freezing the sap in the limbs.
If this be true, the loss to the state will
be very large; but it is hoped that the

Judge Howe's wife dfed in 1881, and
his only surviving relatives are his son
Prank, daughter Mrs. Totten, wife of
Col. Enoch Totten, of Washington, his
nephew, Col. James H. Howe and niece
Miss Grace Howe of Kenosha.
Mr. Howe's illness was the result of a
severe cold contracted by walking half
a mile through a bad storm at Green
Bay last Sunday, which, on arrival at
Kenosha on Monday, developed into
pneumonia. Dr. Isham of Chicago was
