THK TWO BILLS,
Tb« New York HVWthin tersely makes
comparison between tb« Mills bill and tb«
Senat« bill:
Tb« bills bill redoes the average dutv
to 42.78 per rest. The R- pablican Senat;
bill redo«« Um averig« to 42 23 per cent.
If tariff redaction means Fim Trade tb«
Republican measure is therefore 0 45 per
c«at more of a Fr» Trade bill than tb«
Democratic meat u:«.
The Mills bill ravit«* bol eleven of tb«
fourteen schedules. The Senate bill re
vises them »IL If tariff rtvision te a
"first step towards Free Trade" the Re
publican iceasnre therefore takes three
steps more than the Demoaatic.
Tbs Mills bill extends the free litt. Po
does the Senate bill, and bj aeailj the
same camber of articles. If one is Free
Trade for this reason, to is the other.
The Mille bill wooli cat off about $75,
000,000 of the «arploe. The Senate bill
cats off $72,000,000. If there is ' no sur
plus'' bow dare the Ecpublicans propose
this?
WOOL AGAIN.
Th« Intelligencer was highly elated yes
terday over what il ignorant] y or mal it ioos
ly mistook tor a misstatement of facts ia
the Rioistib. It «ttemp ed to prove
it a misstatement by quoting the list
of price« of wool famiihed the Bkg
isteb by s Short Creek wool ruser
some time ago, which slow that
this gentleman got more for his wool
in 1883 than he did in 1887. If the InteUi
qenerr will go to the trouble to It ok op
the record of th« wool market* for the
paet 30 years and compare them with the
list fort iihed by oar Stort Creek corres
pondent it will lied tint it is not the
same quality of wcol that is quoted m
both cases, though, with the exception
of the last fire years, they tillr propor
tionately almost exactly with the >iseatd
fall cf tte tariff—that is, the pi ice went
up when tbe tariff went down and rice
cerna.
The Intelligencer, judging tie Regis, ks
by its own code of moral*, of course, im
mediately jumped to tbe conclusion that
this joamal bed fabifisd tbe figure?, bt
c»nse that is what tbe Intelligcncer wonld
do, jou know, if the figeras were not its
way.
The flgurts are our way, it happens, which
can be proven with veiy little trcuble.
We qaote the fo1 lowing from aa Eastern
contemporary, every figure of which is
troe, as shown by the record of the Boston
wool market:
An examination of tbe prices cf wool at
Boston, the eojtrollicg markt t of tbe
United States, w 1' show th.t the beet
average prions were obt»:ia»d when woo!
was practice lty free of dnty. Trevioas to
18.'7 there waa a tariff of 3J per c?nt., but
ths tariff act of that year edmitted tbe
fioe wools of South At erica, Australia
and the Cafe of Gojd Hope free, end re
duced tte rate on certain rar.», high-cost
»corned wools to les* than 20 per cant.
Virtually the set of 1857 pat wool on tbe
tree list, and there it remained until after
th« war. In 1856 wo»l brought 60 cents a
poond in the Boston market, and after the
duties wer« removed tie following changes
took plaça:

The^e were the be*t years for the wcol
industry ever known in tbe United States,
atd wool was theo virtually on the free
lis;! Ia 1867, when wool command«d 61
cents a pound, Corgreas determined to
"protect'' the wo.lgowers and imposed
a duty rangirg on different grades of tl-«ce
from 50 to 60 per cens., with the following

The Chicago Tribune, the leidioç Re
publican paper of the West, comments on
these figures:
Thus, wki'e wool was free, pre»» were
wall maintained acd stable, while under a
high protective tariff th-y fell s'.ejdily,
with an ccraoional violent reaction. The
high price in 1872 wai c'tned by a scarcity
ot wrx 1, resulting Aoni disease and lots in
the docks, but the r*td dropped back the
next yesr, and the teiiff whojljr fai.'ei to
arrest the steady sagging dew a cf tbe
m*rfeet, whi^h continued without check
until 1832, when wool reached 25 cents
j* ptund, the lowest reto in 40 years.
During this pe-i»d of tub protection
fioxn 1867 to 1833 the number of sheep
in the wool g owing St »tes of Ohio,
Michigan, Pennsvlvania, New York, In
dien«, Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa fell
from 29,000,000 to 14,000,000, or a It si of
oce-b:»'f. Danng th» p>riod of high p otec
tion the price ot wool fell from 60 c^nts to
25 cents, asd the llo:ks ia the wco! grow
'.ng S;aîes mentioned were reduced one
half, and yet tbe farmeis are expect'd to
become enthusiastic over a misnamed pro
tectionist p:l cy that boreench bitte; froits
as taeee.
Iu 1383, when wco', after 15 yeirs of
bip h protection, had reached the loweet
price known in 40 years, Congrees, at that
time Republic in in both branches and
with a Republican President, determined
•o try a diffirent policy, and accord ngly
re«need the tariff from 1 to 3 ctn*« per
p">ond, according to the <radeof tic flesce.

Whde wool fell cvsr one-ba>f in pic*
under high protection, a reduction of two
cant« a pound in tbe duty was fillowed by
an immediate advance ia the market—an
«dvar.ee wbich has continued stesdi'y
until, after foor years Under the le seced
duty, wool is seven cents a pound higher
il prie*, altboanh still lower t ?an when
•h^r* was no duty. From th??e indisput

"I WISH YOU HAD SOAP THAT WOULD FLOAT,"
a lady said to a clerk in a large grocery store. "You have no
idea how ordinary soap is wasted. The servants let it remain in
the bottoms of the wash-tubs, dish-pans, and scrubbing-pails, and
when the water is poured off, the soap has the consistency of mush,
and a new bar must be taken from the box. If the soap would only
float, they would see it, and take it out of the water when they were
through with it."
The "Ivory S04P" floats, replied the clerk. Oil \iill float;
and, as the "Ivory Soap" is made of oils, and is per cent,
pure, as a matter of course it will float.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the ' Ivory'

the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and insist upon getting it*

The fore^ing letter is rot from a pili
tician who is interested in ths discnsMon
of tariff theories, but from a tirm that bas
Amer eau shovels and ths Disston saws
for sale both in this country and Mexico,
and it clearly established the fact the
Mefsr*. Diss* ou evade ratter than defy
that important lines of their goals are s< l i
for foicign markets 20 per cent, cheaper
than the same ait c!es are wild to home
purchasers. In othrr words, the Messrs
DLseton c*n profitably manufacture for for
eign nurko's at prices below European
prices, but 88 high protection excludes for
eign tools, etc., from our markets, they
employ thï tariff s.mply to tax American
pcrchasers vastly mcr<j than they charge
foreign purchasers.
The time was when the tow large indns
try of the Mewers. I uston required pro
tection to build it up, but American ener
gy end skill triumphed over the energy
and skill of Earope and now they te k
fore<gumarkers in open cempetion with
foreign manufacturer, and tbey employ
the tariff taxes oa tte'r products merely
£.-> make dout 1 j tin profits from American
purchasers that they make from foieigo
customers. Iu this case, as in many other
cases of »lVged protection, it is simply
protection to foreign purchasers and an
extortionate tax upoa American purchas
ers. Of coorse, the Metsera. Disston
sirop'y do what a'l othsr besiuesa men
do—that is to get the beet prices for their
products that can bs oh'ained in the mar
kets opsn to them: but tbey should cot
claim as legitimate protection to American
industry what is s'mply a protection to
foreign consumers aul an extra tex upon
home consutxe-s. The plain English of
the case is that the foreign carpenter or
other mechanic nsing the Dicton fawe or
toole, pays 20 per cent or so less for tbem,
even after the cost of sb puent, than the
American carpenter or othsr mechan'c
using such tools, pays fjr them in tte cny
