PROTECTIONISM! UNMASKED
Advocate! of protectionism are generally
so blinded or befogged by the sophistries
of that theory, tbat they fail to discern
many of tbe plainest facts bearing on the
Subject. Hence they continually barp
•n the "beneficial results of the protec
tive system," without stopping to inquire
Who are the beneficiaries of those good
results. It can easily be seen tbat pro
tective tariffs benefit pecuniarily, though
not mvaily, a very few persons, and that
they are those who least need protection
by legislation, even if it were right for
tbe government to confer special privi
leges on any class of citizens, rich or
poor, which it is not. Edward Atkin
son, who, though often faulty in his
logic, is considered good authority in
statistics, declares that only one in ten
parsons among the entire population of
the Uniteu States derives any benefit from
ths protective system. This, of course,
means that nine psrsons are taxed (rob
bed) for the benefit of the one other per
son. But even if the figures could be re
versed, the principle at the foundation of
the system would still be wrong. Tne
government has no more moral right to
tax one person to aid nine, than it has
to tsx nine for the pupose of helping one.
Tbe principle involved is wrong in either
case. The claim made by coampions of
special privileges that protectionism is n
blessing to the whole people is the ver
iest rot. Not a single fact can be found
to substantiate that absurd claim. No
people can be benefited by having their
natural rights chained down or tied up.
One uatural right of every man ia the
right to trade When, where and with
whom he may please, so long as be does
not interfere witb the natural rights of
any one else. All the civil governments
on earth cannot abolisb this 'ight, how
ever much tbey may interfere with the
exercise of it.
Bnt let us see what the United States
■npreme court has said relative to taxing
communities for tbe benefit of private
parties. The celebrated Topaka case Is
one exactly in point. Most people who
read up on tariff matters have probaDly
heard of the case, but few, we presume,
have ever given it special attention and as
certained what tbe court said in its decis
ion. The case was entitled "The Citi
zens' Savings and Loan Association of
Cleveland, 0., plaintiff in error, vs. To
peKa City." The city of Topeka, Kas.,
bad issued bonds for $10u,u00 as a dona
tion to the King Wrought Iron Bridge
Manufacturing and Iron Works company
of Topesa to aid and encourage that com
pany in establishing and operating bridge
shops there. The loan association bought
the bonds and subsequently brought suit
in the United States circuit court of the
district of Nebraska. An act of the Kansas
legislature authorized the city oouncil to
call an election for such purpose, which
was done, but the supreme court decided '
that act of the legislature unconstitu
tional. The court said: "The power to
tax is the strongest, the most pervading of
all the powers of the governmeut. reach
ing directly or indirectly to all classes of
people." . . . "Of all the powers con
ferred upon government that of taxation
is most liable to abuse. Chief Justice
Marshall said tbe power to tax is the
power lo destroy. To lay with one hand
the power of the government on the prop
erty of the citizen and witli the other to
bestow it upon lavored individuals to aid
private enterprises and build fortunes is
none tbe less robbery because done under
the forma of law and called taxation.
There can be no lawful tax wbicn is not
laid for a pubiic purpose. If it be said
tbat a benefi. results to the local public
of a town by establishing manufactures
tha sarni may be said of any other busi
ness or pursuit which employs capital or
labor. The merchant, the mechanic, the
Inn keeper, the banker, the builder, the
steamboat owner, are equally promoters
of the public good and equally deserving
of tbe aid of the citizens by forced con
tribution. No line can bo drawn in favor
of the manufacturer which would not
open the coffers ot the publio treasury to
tbe importunities of two-thirds of the bus
iness men of the city or town."
Thia decision, rendered in 1875 by the
highest judicial tribunal in the land,
atrikes a direct blow at tho protective
theory, as the same principle is involved,
although the case was one concerning a
•Ity and one private corporation instead
of the people of the whole United States
and numerous corporations and private
interests. That {is the only difference,
and it is entirely non-essential.
In the light of such a decision what le
gal ground has protectionism to stand
on? None whatever. As for moral ground,
It never had any and never can nave any.
The complete unmasking of the protec
tive system so that everybody can clear
ly understand its nuture and purposes is
•11 tbat is needed to insure its complete
overthrow.
Aa near aa we can make out from atf
intermittent perusal, by installments, ot
the sugar beet editorials of our esteemed
contemporary. Messrs. Oxnard <fc Co. ot
CBino are running a poor mouth about
their veiv lucrative saccharine business
in tbe hope tbat the subterfuge may
afford tbem the protection of non-compe
tition] Our contemporary ia for protec
tion on general principles, but in favor
of competition In this particular in
stance. It appears that California can
get on profitably without a sugar bounty,
but ought to be willing nnd anxious to
contribute to the payment of one to the
sugar makers of Louisiana and Texas.
Just how tbis coast is to become tbe ben
eficiary of protection when it lias no oc
casion in the world for a Bounty ia one
of those perplexing little questions that
McKinleyites are continually getting tan
gled about.
It was announced some time ago tbat
the police would prevent the street car
companies from operating their cars at
a reckless rate of speed,but tbey continue
to be propelled at from twelve to twenty
miles an hour. In the center of town,
it is true, that their speed is moderated
somewhat, but on residence streets they
go their own gait, being a particular
menace to children. Eight miles an hour
is tast enough for street cars; a more rap
id speed ought to be made criminal.
Is it not time for the council to say
something more about "the fence?" The
chief of police does not seem to be active
in tha matter, tbe police commissioners
talk a great deal about it, but do
nothing, and meanwhile Mr. Bauer
catches everything coming and going—
and the band plays o.i.
Getting the government to make cheap
money does not imply tbat the multitude
will get money cheap. An enlarged "cir
culation" per capita does not argue that
an improved per "pocketa" distribution
will follow.
Tbe appointment of a brigadier gener
al once more shows that tbe first shall be
Last and the Last shall be first.
Not through restriction, but through
freedom, lies the path of progrtss.

FOR JAPANESE EXCLUSION
Enormous Development of In
dustry in Japan
INCREASED OPIUM REVENUES
Collector J. H. Wise Discourses on the
Working of the Law
Smuggling of Oplnm No Longer a Lucratlv*
Business—The Importation of th* Crud*
Product Causing Sam* Trouble
The marvellous aptitude Japan ho
shown for assimulating tbe knowledge of
the west and carrying on manufacturing
enterptises on such an economical basis
that the efforts of its people in this direc
tion are a diroct menace to the higher
civilized nations who have been the
teachers of the little brown men. In tliii
state, particularly, a large amount of at
tention is being given to the subject and
there is a growing demand that the in
flux of Japanese emigrants be limited.
This demand is rather in tne nature of a
safeguard against what may happen rather
than In consequence of anything tnat is
taking place at tbe present time.
In the larger iudustrial centers of Japan
weavers and spinners average 15 cents
per day. women receiving 8 cents. The
tirst factories were built by the govern
ment and at a later dats turned over to
joint stock companies. The industry that
bas been most prosperous is tbat of the
maufacture of cotton goods. Oue estab
lishment at Kamgfuchl employs 2100
men and 3700 women, who are divided
and night Bhifts of twelve hours
labor each. The spinneries at Osska are
carried on under a similar scale. All
these factories are fitted witb the most
improved English machinery and the
plants are constantly being inreased for
the production Is not yet up to consump
tion. Large dividendsare being declared
and employers of labor there have found
out that female labor is much cheaper if
not quite so etlicient for statistics show
tbat thirty-five spinneries give work to
10,897 women and only 5750 men.
Witb such development of manufactur
ing industries it can only be a question of
time when Japan will reach out for otber
than the home market. That suob an
element of competition if introduced
would threaten American labor is what
is now being taught, hence the outcry
against the Japanese emigrants and the
growing demand tbat same restriction be
placed upon tbeir free admission to tbis
country.
Upon this subject John H.Wise, col
lector of tbe port at San Francisco, talked
most interestingly yesterday. While not
falling exactly within his province as
collector, the subject of Japanese emi
gration being in some respects closely
allied to the kindred question of Chinese
exclusion, is more crless familiar to him.
"The present gowing demand that some
checK be placed upon the free entry ot the
Japanese to this country," remarked Col
lector Wise, "seems to me to be the re
sult of a fear of what may happen in the
future,rather than from any well ground
ed objection to the indux going on at
present. At the same time it appears to
me that if a choice has to be made the
Chinese are much more desirable resi
dents. In traveling through tbe state I
have been told repeatedly by ranchers
that Japs can be hired for considerably
less than Ctuncs:that the latter are more
skillful workmen, and among the mer
cantile class ..are much better business
men.''
Passing on to speak of the success of
the exclusion law Mr. Wise gave a few
figures that put the case concisely and
show the Jastonishing decrease in the
number of Chinese coming to this coun
try.
"When 1 received my appointment,"
said Mr. Wise, "four steamers were ar
riving at San Francisco each month, and
eacli vessel brought from 500 to 1000
Chinamen. At ihe present time each ar
riving steomer brings from thirty to forty
Cbinese, making an average per month
actually less than tbe number returniug
to China. Altogether tbe law is working
well, and the Chinese being smuggled in
are comparatively insignificant in num
bers."
Being askid as to the importation of
opium under tbe Democratic tariff, Mr.
Wise also was enabled to give some data
that illustrated the wisdom of reducing
the exorbitant duty that had previously
been placed upon tha seductive com
pound.
"When the duty was $10 the returns
were between 1800,000 and $900,000; when
the duty was dropped to $0 the consump
tion increased to bucli an extent that the
revenue was nearly $1,400,000, and later,
wben the duty was jumped to $12 per
pound the revenue declined to $600,000.
After studying the situation and master
ing the details in conjunction with others
who had studied the subject. 1 appeared
before the Wilson committee with tbo
result tbat tne duty was placed at $6 per
pound. There are about 20,000 pounds
consumed and,approximately, the revenue
will be $1.500,C00/"
The "consumption" of opium referred
to by Colleotor Wise is more apparent
than real. As he very properly pointed
out.the consumption of the drug has not.
so far as could be learned, va'ied much
despite the vicissitudes of high tariff and
low tariff. Tbe essential difference be
tween tbe two lies in the fact that witb a
low tariff it does not pay to smuggle, and
tne government receives the benelit in
revenue.but with a tariff smuggling
is a proiitablo business,and the difference
in revenue received is frittered away
among tbe white men and Celestials who
embark upon the illegal but lucrative
business of opium smuggling.
One drawback to the successful work
ing of the law has been the placing of
crude opium on the free list. Inasmuch
as at the passage of the last tariff bill
thorc did not appear any good reason why
the crude drug, used only for medicinal
purposes, should be taxed, it was placed
on the free list. Collector Wise adivsed
a duty of $2 per pound, but his commnu
ication arrived in Washington too late to
receive any prolonged consideration.
Since then, however, the Chinamen have
attained great skill in "cooking" tbe
opium, and while the product is in every
way inferior to tbe imported article, it
is largely used, and In this way the gov
ernment is defrauded. At the next ses
sion of congiess an attempt will bo made
to amend the law in tbis direction.
THE WRECKED HUMBOLDT
No Panic and No Fatalities-Tha Vessel In
sured for $ao,ooo
EUREKA, Cal., Sept. 29.—Tne latest
news from the wreck of tbe steamer
Humboldt was received this evening
when the tug Ranger returned from tbe
scene bringing Chief Engineer Foord of
tbe ill-fated steamer. Tlie steamer is two
miles south of Point Gurda and the lo
cality is a perfect nest of rocks, sunken
and projecting. A lifo bout was sent to
the wreck and finding nil hands safely on
shore, took off the mail sacks. Chief
Foord, in his account of tbe disaster, is
loud in praises of tne staunchness of the
vessel. Had it not been for the strength
of the vessel it is possible some, if not
all of those aboard would have been lost.
The vessel went on the rocks at 3:50 Sat
urday morning and although oontinuallv
pounding and grinding on the rocks,
pumps were able to keep tbe water under
control until 11:15 a. m. By that time
the passengers bad all been put ashore
and only tbe crew remained. The water
put out the tires. They, too, made prep
arations to leave the vessel. A surprising
thing about tlie wreck was ths absence of
all panic. When tbe vessel struck the
passengers were quiotly awakened and told
to dress, life boats" were cleared away
and a man stationed at each to prevent
any premature attempts to leave tbe
ship. This precaution, however, seemed
unnecessary and instead of excited men
and screaming women, the passengers
acted as though "being wrecked" was an
every day o:currence. A; 8 o'clock break
fast was served in the saloon as usual
and most of the pnsseneers ate heartily,
after which preparations were made to
leave the ship. Only one boat load ut a
time was sent off, women first, but all
succeeded in landing safely, and barring
the wetting, suffered no inconvenience.
By this time a nasty sea had commenced
to come up. and when Hie crew com
menced to go ashore trouble commenced.
Of four boats in use two were smashed on
the rocks, but tbe occupants succeeded in
scrambling ashore.' Finally none out the
captain and three men were left aooard.
They took the last boat but were com
pelled to pull out to sea. where tbey re
mained some time, getting ashore during
a smooth spell. Chief boord professes
to know nothing of the cause of the
wreck, but supposes it due to the fog and
the current. Kicbard Swensey, manag
ing owner, who returned from the scene
of the wreck on the tug, said that he hud
given up tne vessel as a total loss. The
Vessel was insuied for $20,000.
IT IS ON HISTORIC GROUND
A Washington Theater to Be Opened
Tomorrow
A Building of Classic Grecian Architecture on
the Site of the Famous Sew
ard Mansion
WASHINGTON, Sept. 29.—The new
Lafayette Square opera house, built on
the site of ths old Seward mansion,where
Wilkes Booth's co-conspirator attempted
the life of Secretary Seward, and where
James G. Blame died, opens tomorrow
night with Lillian Russell in Tsigane.
The theater faces the Lafayette
square directly opposite the White House.
The structure is built of polished grey
granite and the architecture of tha classic
Grecian order. It has a frontage of 71!
feet and is 146 leet deep. The building
is pronounced absolutely fire proof. Tho
main entrance is thirty-six feet wide,
opening directly on the sidewalk. The
lobby is finished tn mahogany and floored
in mosaics, while.the broad marble stair
cases on either Bide lead to the upper
floors.
Tbe main floor, rising in five tiers, is
constructed on tbe cantilever plan, so
tbat there are only two supporting
scaghola on tbe main floor and third bal
conies. All of tbe auditorium is divided
into three stalls, named after tbe presi
dents of the United States. There are
sixteen proscenium boxes. The fronts of
the stalls aud balconies are ornamented

against the construction of which Senator
Cameron and others in the senate made
such a persistent tight last winter.
ANTI A. P. A.
Archbishop tiros* Defends His Church Against
"Revived Orangelsm"
BUTTE, Mont., Sept. 20.—Archbishop
Gross of Portland made an address at the
opera house tonight on the objects of the
order of Catholic Knights of America.
Most of tbe address was devoted to tne
defense of the church against the anti-
Catholic sentiment represented in the
American Protective association. Ha
■aid it was tbe old know nothing move
ment over again. "We see the old lie
come back again" said he. "It is a pity
honest people like Americans are so I
treated by men who tell most infamous j
things against the Catholic church, if
I am not mistaken this last story was
started by Orangemen from Canada. In
regard to the government, the church is
here to teach not politics but the religion
of Jesus Christ. It will require all the
brass of Oraneemen to tell us anything
in the Catholic church against the liber
ties of this country."
The arenbishop referred to the Catholic
colony in Maryland being the tirst to
grant religious toleration in America
and of tbe efforts of Catholic France in
behalf of the revolutionists.
"Here are our Orangemen and they
are poor, poor dupes," he continued,
"claiming to be lineal descendants of
the great Washington. They are lineal
descendants of tnat traitor to tho Ameri
can cause, Benedict Arnold, who gave
as bis reason for treason his fear for too
much power of the Koman Catholics."

Two Schooners Can Be Hauled Off, but the
Steamer Kershaw Is •
Total Loss
MONTREAL, Sept. 29,-Tbe stories
told by the shipwrecked crew of the
steamship Mariposa, who w.iere brought
the Straits of Hello Isle by the
steamship Austrian, read more like the
tales of piracy of a century ago than a
present day incident. A storm was rag
lot: when the big Dominion liner struck
on the jagged rocks of Point Amour at 2
o'clock on tbe morning of Thursday,
September 21th. The saloun passengers
were landed on tbe rocks as soon as prac
ticable, along with their baggage, 'ihe
steamer hid been aground but a few
hours nefore v band of belle Isle pirates
made their appearance. They lirst paid
attention to the baggage of the saloon
passengers, whicli they forcibly seiz ed
and carrietl some distance inland.
11. M. S. Buzzard; of the New Found
lon 1 patrol service, however, fortunately
happened along and a party of blue
jackets started in pursuit. The pirates
were taken unawares a-ound a camp tire.
One of tbe fellow-, had donned the uni
form of Captain Oatgraln of the royal en
gineers, a young Canadian returning to
rejoin his regiment. All the baggage was
recovered and the pirates warned away.
The Mariposa will be a total loss, but
most of the live stock and some of her
cargo will be saved.
ST. JOHNS, N. V.. Sept. 20. -Tne Eng
lish cruiser buzzard arrived this morn
ing from the wreck of the steamer Mari

steamers are arranging to go. The Mari
posa went ashore on Tuesday morning,
four hours before day break, with a tbick
fog prevailing. Wben it was light enough
t i see to land passengers the sea was too
high to send them by tho boats and the
crew had to send life lines ashore and
rig a breeches buoy to fasten thttpassen
gers to and thus send tbem to land one
at a time. Two women fainted before
going and several others while making
the trip. All were taken on board tbe
Allan liner Sardinia and conveyed to
Montreal next day. The ship was a total

attached to the wreck by a cable and in a
perilous position.
