The Diamond R company is to 1ei conl
ratulated. The recently reported
trike is even better than it was at first
ad to be. A rich vein has been found
in the cross-cut at the 300 foot level,
showing six feet of solid ore. Judging
from all that has come to light in the
Moulton it is one of the best properties
in the Neibhrt district.
The men employed in the Galt cutting
a station on the five foot vein, on Mon
day ran into an enlargement measuring
ten and a half feet in width. Ore on the
surface of this mine shows 20 ounces to
the ton, while on the 20l foot level it
assays $100 to the ton.

WAnsluicvroa, Feb. 27.- The house of a
representatives today in its consideration
of the Indian appropriation bill autho
rized an innovation which, if concurred
in by the senate, will be of great interest
to Indian agents and ollicers of the
regular army. After two hours' debate
an amendment, proposled by Ilowers of
California, was iadlpted. providing that
the president ima delltail ltlicers of thel
qiry to act as India n aents whenever
vacancies occur in anit of the agencies.
On motion ot Ilolman. holwever. at fur
ther amendment was adtlopted, pro
viding that such army otticers. while
acting as Indian agents shall he undler
the orders and direction of the secretary
of the interior. How army illicers will t
rerei-ve this innovation is a matter of
great speculation among e(ongresanil
today as otlicers of the rmgulai urniy
have always been very jealonust of their
independent pI.oition and may resent

and the war departlment. The committee
then passed on to the consideration of

of which in 1891 aitniunted to *12.8ltl. t

l in 1891 we exported to (Germnuay $91.
a 684.981 of domestic merchandise. Of
q this, only $l6.354I,17, or 1.1t per cent.,
o consisted of articles affected by the new
treaty. The only articles which were
formerly subnject to duty, but are now
g free. ;re bed feathers, anise, caraway
- and curnulin seeds, bark for tanning
and oleomargarine anld similar oily sub
t, The duties on wheat :ctd flour. which
MI were under the old law 5 and 10.3j
if marks, respectively, are now :1.t0 and
it 7.30 marks. The old duties were nearly
prohibitive under ordinary conditions.
Since equal reductions are lmade on
wheat alnd itnr imported from. Austr'ia
Hungary, the advantages which the hilt
ter has over the Unitedt States on ac
,r count of tier close proximliity tot (erunllny
will give her the bulk of the trade.
t This applies eqiually to rye and iauts.
iUnder these cirnllutanctles we cannll)ot
expect to meaterially increase our exlports
of these products to iernlttany.
1To say trothing of the duties imlpoel,
the (hi cr:teter of our harley, alt aunli
n hoips is such that. as ill the past, ewe will i
r export Inone of th.l:so products to (er
Smany. In fact. Uermnany, besides sup
plying her ownl markets, is a large cx
porter of these articles to Great Brliai i
and other countries.
Thesnmall reduction made in the dutie I
on sawed lumber and timber prepared
otherwise than by hewing will have very
little favorable effect on our exlports.
The only reduction made in the dutiesll
on live anituals is that upon oxen: but
our exports of ooxen cannot be large,
since last year only $4.L,5,970 of all kinds
of cattle were exported to Germany.
The duty on fresh meats, except pork,
has been reduced five marks. in 1891
we did not export a lpound of fresh mec:t.
The reduction of a little over one-half a
cent per pound in the duty will not
build up any considerable trade.
Germany removed the prohibition
from American pork on the assurance
of the United ;tates that no diseased
pork would be exported. The high
prices prevailing before American pork
was allowed to enter, equal to about
twelve cents per pound, stimulated our
trade for a time until the German
farmors reduced the price, when it
again fell off. The high duty, coupled
with the fact that Germany is a large
producer of pork, will naturally pre
vent our exports from increasing to astn
considerabl. extent. On prepared meat-.
except bacon, and by this is meant anl
meats, whether salted, pickled or canned,
i te reduction is one third of a cent p r
pound. This nlaty have some favorable
effect on our exports; but the increase
cannot be large. The duty on bacon re
mains at the old rate of twenty marks.
On the whole, therefore, the reduc
tions in duty on less thIan 46.Z4li,317 of
our prodnets, in consideration for the
fre admuission of over $l .8l91,000 of (er
man sugar into the United States, are
i not as largo ti ought to be unule. The
GiermLan go.,erntuent was doubtless in
formed that the feeling prevailing among
the plxople of the United States against
the roimpositiou of the duty on sugar
was so strong that our government
would not attempt it, and accordingly
granted the slight reductions noted
In view of the heavily increased duties
imposed by the McKinley bill upon Ger
man products, which in thecase of wool
ens, hosiery,cottons and liuensfrequent
ly ranged from 50 to 100 per cent., it was
useless to expect any great concessions
from that power. Mr. Blaine was there
fore forced to accept what he could get.
In other words, so far as Germany is con
cerned, the "reciprocity club" was not
Stffectually wielded by the United States.
r The list of articles prohibited in the
1 proclamation of the president includes
many things on which no change in the
duty has been made. Thus, raw flax,
bran, horsehair, agricultural products
not otherwise provided for, raw hides,
charcoal and wool are free of duty, with
out regard to the country from which
they are imported. Similarly cheese,
fruits antd nuts, buckwheat, bacon and
all live an.intdil, except oxen, are duti
able at the same rate whea Imported
from the United 8tates as when im.
ported from other countries.
The only reason conceivable for in
cluding these products in the "reci
procity" treaty was doubtless to create a
favorable impression here by a large
showing. This is nothing but "bhun
combe," pure and simple. The failure
on the part of Mr. Blaine to secure a
amore favorable treaty was not his fault.
lie has been hampered by the limitations
iniromwd by the "reciprocity" act. This
latest example of its work shows, as has
often been aassrted in these columns,
that as a means for increasing our trade
abroad the reciprocity law is a failure.

by us:
"ALBANY, Fel. 2.
"DE:.AR Stu In reply to your request
in regard to American till plate would
say that our experience was very unsat.
*'We ordered five boxes of Americanl
bright 1.1 by 20 plato as a sample order
of an agent of Ely & Williams. He saiis
it would be ready for delivery about
thirty days thence. This was, we think,
the latter part of Matrch or the fore part
of April, bat after several inquiries of
their agent (when he came to Albany) he
said he was surprised that we did not
receive the tin: but after giving up all
Mope of en er getting the tin it came to
hand on Nov. 14, 1891. This we presume
was a special delivery, so we have not
taken the chanceof being placed in such
a position again by walting six months
for goods.
"Hoping you will not have any such
delay as we have had in getting any
plate of American product, we are yonurs,
-National Provisioner.
