HIGH PRICE OF PAPER.
TARIFF TAX ON WOOD PULP A COSTLY ONE. Compel Subscriber* to I’ay More for Their Country Newspaper The Cry for It* In*teat Kepeel I* Very Loud —Paper Tru»t Kobbcry. There are very conclusive reasons "Why the present tariff tax on wood _pulp and printing paper should be re pealed, and there Is no reason In the Interest of % American industry that pleads for the continuance of these ; taxes. They are now simply an ele ment of robbery under color of law, they should be effaced frof'V our | statutes. The paper trust is now taxing the , wewspaper and book publishers of the •country many millions, not because of , any such actual Increase in the cost of producing paper, but because the trust lias the power to extort from the pur chasers of paper up to the extent that would make tariff-taxed foreign paper < an.! pulp cheaper than the prices de manded here. This trust has played Its scheme of extortion to the uttermost, and congress should at once remove the tax that protects no American In dustry and that has become only an -agent to rob the consumers. Two-thirds of the wood pulp used In the manufacture of paper for American consumption should come from Can aula. but K is excluded by a tariff tax. -and we are now rushing headlong In The destruction of our forests, while •Canada, with its almost limitless sup ply of timber, cannot reach our mar kets because of the tax Imposed by the tariff. The two conclusive reasons which '.should make congress act promptly are —first, that the paper trust should be at once halted In its rapid destruction of our American forests by the admis sion of free wood pulp from Canada: and. second, that the present extortion practiced by the paper trust upon pub lishers of newspapers and books shall cease to have the protection of the gov ernment. The time has come when any trust That makes arbitrary profits by tariff •duties must cease to be protected by The government. Where American In -dustry needs protection It is reason able to permit it, but where alleged protection is used only for systematic robbery, it must be overthrown. We can now manufacture paper as •cheaply as any country in the world. | There is no excuse whatever for a tax upon the manufactured articles, and the raw material should be free, not •only because the general principle Is ■correct, but because if It shall not be done promptly our forests will be prac tically destroyed within a few years by tariff taxes excluding the lumber of ‘Canada from our markets. Paper and pulp must be made free of all taxes .as the paper trust has dem onstrated that these taxes serve only a alngle purpose —that is to invite rob bery under color of law.—Philadelphia Times. A Hard Kaln. "It rains a great deal In the Puget wound country." said the man from that hection. "and 1 heard of a funny Incident not long ago about 1L Some chap had come from the Mlsslppi val- Jey to take up his residence at What com. on Bellingham bay. where there wre very high tides. When the boat landed him at the end of the long pier extending over the tide flats the water was low and the new man didn’t notice anything but a wide stretch of sand .between the boat and the town. It was in the evening about dark and was .raining, and he went to the hotel on the front street and stayed there, going to bed without having gone out for a walk. The next morning when he got cp he looked out and the tide was In. the water coming up close to the hotel. He gazed at the widespread waters for an instant, and, throwing up his hands In astonishment, he exclaimed. 'Gee whiz, but it must have rained hard last night!’ Then he hurried down wtaire to the office to find out if there was any danger from the flood, and the clerk smiled four or five times and .gave him some much-needed informa tion.”—Washington Star. Both In th« Name Box. A parson who occasionally preaches in South London arrived to take the platte of the vicar, who had been called away on account of some family be reavement,and found an old and rather -asthmatic lady struggling up the steps which led to the front door. He cour teously gave her his arm to assist her and when they reached the top the dame asked him if he knew who was going to preach. “Mr. So-and-So,” re plied the parson, giving his own name. -‘Oh, dear me,” exclaimed the old lady; "help me down again. If you please; I’d rather listen to the groaning and creaking of a windmill than sit under him.” and she prepared to descend. The parson gently assisted her downstairs and sighfully remarked as he bade her good-by: T wouldn’t go in, either, if 2 weren’t the preacher.” "Pa!” “What.
