ONE of the most impressive evidences of the effi
ciency of a protective tariff in building up the
manufacturing industries of a country is af
forded by the recent shipment from San Leandro of
two of the largest traction engines in the" world, to
gether with eight , steel carriages, for use in the
mining districts of Siberia. It is but a short time ago
the free traders were asserting we could not manu
facture any kind of goods as cheaply as we could
buy them from abroad, and that by imposing a pro
tective tariff we imposed a burden upon consumers
for the benefit of a favored class of manufacturers,
thereby committing the economic folly of taxing
profitable'industries to_ support unprofitable 'ones. s*ln5 * In
the face of the recent rapid expansion of our exports
of manufactured goods, that argument has been aban
doned, and the inveterate free traders are now /clam
oring -that since we can compete with any manufac
turing nation on the globe we no longer need protec
tion. " .
The intelligent voters of the United States are* not
likclyvto be deceived by the new arguments of the
foes of protection. It is but a short time ago since
we tried a Democratic tariff, and we have not yet fully,
recovered from the effects of that disastrous experi
ment. Under our present tariff we have revived in
dustry and have so developed our factories that. we
are supplying manufactured goods for all parts of the
world. From our Eastern States there have been
furnished electrical engines for London, locomotives
for railroads^ in India and in Great Britain itself, and
iron bridges for the Soudan. Those shipments froni
our old manufacturing centers were cheering enough,
but now California begins to share in the prosperity,
and : in addition to building ships for Japan we are
supplying engines and cars for Siberia.
The shipment from*san Leandro . will \ serve as the
best advertisement possible in those parts 'of Russia
for California machinery, and as a consequence there

sink to a second rate importance when compared with

NEW YORK, March 17.— Henry D.
Wood Jr. and Thomas Farley of San
Francisco are at the Empire. Theodore
H. Moore of Los Angeles is at the Man
rROM a considerable number of Congressmen,
representing nearly all sections of the Union,
and from every one of those who represent Cali
fornia, a pledge was given last fall to support an
amendment to the war revenue act which would ren
der it impossible for express companies, to continue
the practice of shirking taxes imposed upon them by
the act. So far as the California Congressmen are
concerned the pledge was plain and strong. Up to
this time, however, no step has been taken toward
its fulfillment. • It will be well, therefore, for Boards
of Trade, Chambers of Commerce and other bodies
organized for the purpose of upholding the interests
of merchants and shippers and the community gen
erally to at once remind our Representatives in Con
gress that the people have not forgotten the pledge
and that they_ expect it to be kept. . f
As it stands, that clause of the act which requires
express companies to affix a revenue stamp upon all
receipts or bills of lading is sufficiently straight and
clear to be understood by any intelligent man. The
courts have taken the same view of it as the public,
and by repeated decisions have declared it to be the
duty of the companies to provide and affix the stamp.
Nevertheless, the companies have been 'able to find
lawyers who pretend there is some ambiguity in the
act, and they have succeeded in using the courts to
defeat the courts, and under one pretext or another
have so delayed action that up to this time they are
still able to shirk the tax and impose it upon the
Such bold evasions or defiance of the law as are
shown in this case tend to bring the law itself into
contempt. The people note with growing discontent
the ease with which powerful corporations can make
use of the courts to defeat the laws. Only a short
time ago an official of the Southern Pacific Company
boasted that even if a court were to award damages
to a widow whose husband had been killed by the
negligence of the company, the corporation would
not pay, but would appeal the case from court to
court and prolong it under one pretext or another
until the widow was reduced to starvation or depen
dence on her friends, and all the money due her from
the corporation had been eaten up by attorney fees
and other expenses of litigation. The same course
has been pursued by the express companies in their
aggressions upon the public. They have not openly
announced their contempt of courts and their ability
to stand them off indefinitely, but they have put the
plan into practice, and for two years have continued
to shirk the taxes imposed upon them.
The people of California require their Congress
men to keep the pledge given last fall. They ask that
the revenue act be amended in such a way' that no
shadow of excuse be given for further tax .shirking
by express or other corporations, and that a method bo
provided by which all legal questions arising under
the act can be speedily brought before the -Supreme
Court for prompt adjudication.
If any Congressman regard his pledge as something
of no importance, if he have forgotten it himself or
think the people have forgotten it, it is time for him
to free his mind from such illusions. The pledge
was given in response to a widespread demand. It
was a promise to the people that a grave evil would
be remedied. The evil continues. The public is still
exposed to the aggressions of the express company.
The corporations continue to mock at the courts^and
to shirk the tax. It is a live <issue, and when Con
gressmen meet :hcir constituents this fall they will
iiave to give an account of how they kept that pledge.
It behooves them, therefore, to take action at once.

ASSESSOR DODGE is seeking a means of so
increasing the assessment of property in the
city that the administration can raise a rev
enue sufficient to meet the expenses of municipal.'
government under the new charter without imposing
a tax levy much in excess of the dollar limit. To that
end he has under consideration a project of adding
$100,000,000 to the assessed valuation of last.year. It
will therefore be worth his while to take notice of the
extent to which Wells-Fargo Company has shirked
taxes in the past, is shirking them now, and will
shirk them in the future if it can.
Wells-Fargo Express Company- is capitalized at
$8,500,000, and the stock sells from $120 to $122 a
share. The company probably pays taxes in other
localities upon some portion of its capital, but it is
safe to say it does not pay much. The Assessor has
the right ; to require the corporation to show where
it pays taxes and to what amountSi and it is his duty
to exercise that right. When the amount of such out
side taxation has been discovered it should be de
ducted from the total capitalization of the corporation,
and upon all the remainder taxes should be levied in
San Francisco. For example, if it be found that
Wells-Fargo pay taxes in other places upon prop
erty up to a valuation of $2,000,000, that sum should
be deducted from the total capital of $8,500,006, and
it should be assessed for taxes here at $6,500,000.
The extent to which Wells-Fargo Company prac
tices tax shirking constitutes a grave scandal.^ It has
for two 1 years shirked the Federal war revenue tax,
and for more yearsjthan that has shirked State and
county taxes. . Witli the Federal tax Assessor Dodge
has nothing to do, but it is a matter of official con
cern to him that the shirking of local taxes be no
longer" tolerated. There is a deficiency in the treas
ury, and it is imperative the municipal revenues of
the coming year be larger than those which have left
us without street lights after midnight. Before the
Assessor sets about raising the .. assessments upon
property already sufficiently taxed, however, let him
give heed to the tax-shirking corporations and study
the case of the Wells-Fargo Express' Company." •
THERE is a deal of loose talk afeainst the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty as an abrogation of the Mon
roe doctrine.
It may be of interest to trace the history of that
doctrine and its cause. "The National Intelligencer"
in 1832 published the following explanatory article on
"The Treaty of Verona": "Among the papers lately
introduced into the discussions in France is the treaty
of Verona, which, having laid our hands on' a copy
of it, it may not be amiss at the present time to bring
to the recollection of our readers. With that view
we offer them the following translation of the treaty,
the authenticity of which cannot be doubted, as it is
recognized- by Chateaubriand, one of the signers to
it, in a book recently published in his own defense.
This translation is from the Journal dv Havre, March
17, 1831. Diplomatists pretend that France is bound
by all the treaties, without exception, that have been
concluded by the late expelled Government and the
other powers. Is it also bound by the following se
cret treaty of Verona?
' The undersigned, specially authorized to make addi
tions to the treaty of the Holy Alliance, after having
exchanged their respective credentials, have agreed as
Article I. The high contracting parties being con
vinced that the system of representative government is
equally as incompatible with monarchical principles as
the maxims of the sovereignty of the people with the
divine right, enragre mutually In the most solemn man
ner to us<> all their efforts to put an end to the system
of representative government in whatever country It
may exist in Europe and to prevent Jts being introduced
Into those countries where it is not yet known.
Article 11. As it cannot be doubted that the liberty of
the press is the most powerful means used by the pre
tonded supporters of tire rights of nations to the detri
ment of those of princes, the high contracting parties
promise reciprocally to adopt all proper measures to
suppress It not only in their own States but also In all
the rest of Europe. ,
Article 111. Convinced that the principles of religion
contribute most powerfully to keep nations in the state
of passive obedience which they owe to their princes,
the nigh contracting parties declare it to-be their inten
tion to sustain in their respective States those measures
which the clergy may adopt, with the aim of ameliorat
ing their own Interests, so Intimately connected with tho
preservation of the authority of princes; and the con
tracting powers join in offering their thanks to the Pope
for what he has already dene for them, and solicit his
constant co-operation in their views of submitting the
Article IV. The situation of Spain and» Portugal
unites, unhappily, all the circumstances to which this
treaty has particularly reference. The high contracting
parties, in confiding to France the care of putting an end
to them, engage to assist her' in the manner which may
the least compromit them with their own people and the
people of France by means of a subsidy on the part_pf
the two empires of twenty millions of francs every year
from the date of the signature of the treaty to the end
of the war.
Article V. In order to establish in the peninsula the
order of things- which existed before the revolution of
Cadiz and to insure the entire execution of the present
treaty the high contracting parties give to each other
the reciprocal assurance that as long as their views are
not fulfilled, rejecting all other ideas of utility or other
measures to be taken, they will address themselves with
the shortest possible delay to all the authorities existing
in their States, and all their agents in foreign countries,
with a view to establish connections tending toward the
accomplishment of this treaty. /
Article VI. This treaty shall be renewed, with Buch
changes as new circumstances may give occasion for,
either at a new congress or at the court of one of the
contracting parties as soon as the war with Spain shall
be terminated. . .
Article VII. The present treaty shall be ratified and
the ratifications exchanged at Paris within the space of
six months.

For Prussia, BERRISTET.
The Spanish colonies in this hemisphere had re
volted and their independence had been acknowledged
by the United States and Great Britain. The treaty
of Verona foreshadowed the purpose of the signa
tories to aid Spain in their recovery. Great Britain
obtained knowledge of this secret treaty and com
municated it to the United States. President Mon
roe met the emergency in this clause in his message
of 1823:
"We owe it, therefore, to candor and to the
amicable relations existing between the United States
and the allied powers to declare that we should con
sider any attempt on their part to extend^their sys
tem to any'part of this hemisphere as dangerous'to
our peace and safety. With the existing colonies or
dependencies of any European power we have not in
terfered and shall not interfere,. but with the Govern
ments who have declared their independence and
maintained it, and whose independence we have on
great consideration and just principles acknowledged,
we could not viewany interposition for the purpose
of oppressing them or controlling in any other man
ner their destiny by any European power in any other
light than as the manifestation of an unfriendly dis
position toward the United States."
That checked the designs of the Holy Alliance as
far as this hemisphere was concerned, and perusal of
the treaty of Verona will show how all of its purposes
have been negatived by events.

to reach their destination. They go from San
Leandro to New York td be "shipped from that port
instead of from San Francisco. With the completion
of the eastern end of the* Siberian railroad, however,
the" situation will be changed. "T nen California ; will
have advantage over the East in 'the Siberian mar
kets', and instead of San Leandro goods being shipped
from New York, the products of the Eastern manu

In the , meantime the incident serves to^show.the
vast benefits which have accrued to the industries of
the country from the election of: President McKinley
and the establishment of prosperity upon the firm
basis of protection and sound money. The tunes to
which Republican campaign songs will be set' this fall
will be gathered from the : whirring of spindles and
the sonorous music of forges and looms. We have
assured our own markets with the best manufac
tured goods in-the world, and now we go forth to fur
nish the machinery that is 1 to help civilization for
ward in all parts of the globe, froni the deserts of the
Soudan to the frozen fields of Siberia.

Auditor Wells seems to be suffering from the delu/
sions of a day dream. He says that by advertising for
bids he willbe able to secure the benefits of compe
tition in the local telephone service. Perhaps he
thinks the monopoly will bid against itself.
