Looking for Tin-lMate. The New York Evening Post has been Marching industriously and unceasingly tor "A<i lericau tin-plate," and pig tin J ^ver since the McKinley committee rtod, summer before last, that tlic ufacture of this article had passed nd the experimental stage in this ity. The Post has also been trying Ml this time to buy, at regular market fates, a ton or two of American pig tin or a commercial quantity of home made fin-plate, but hitherto in vain. When the Philadelphia high tariff papers a few days ago reported the discovery of a real American tin-plate works in that city, the News naturally took up the j trail. It sent its Philadelphia tvith instructions to find any of that tin plate, if it was in the market. He went to N. & G. Taylor's place, at No. 303 Branch street, where tho tin-plate was ^ .Mid to be manufactured. He saw both ? members of tho firm, but they "refused absolutely to talk for publication." - 'With dealers in tin and tin-plate he had better luck. Ilis first call was upon Merchant & Co., on Arch street above Fifth, with the head of which firm he held the following interview : al of out a "Have you secured any of then the famous Teiuescal tin mines . of Mr. Merchant, the head of the firm. "No," he r have heard of "But, according to the TVcaaand Inquirer, N. & G. Taylor have been receiving large ' quantities of it." Mr. Merchant's eyes twinkled. He did I not reply at once, but seemed R> be laugh* j ing inwardly. Then he said : % I lors. Their busines [ know that I mines except through the newspap I that I never bought any pig-tin from ' them." . "Would you be likely to have heard of ! this mine if it was a large producer?" J "Certainly; we are next to the bigirest Importers of tin plate in the city. We im port about 400 tons a year, and *tl . about $170,000 worth. Don't you think if a pig-tin-mining industry in should be infc duct of I asked 'plied positively, "1 ;'thing about the Tav I do rer heard «»f the T ca J there w ! California f Don't you think our trade would be licited, and that agents would call upor quoteprires? Nothing of this kind has been done." "Do you think, then, tin California?" "Oh, there may be some trifling mining Ingoing on, but not enough to speak of c • merolally, seriously. 1 suppose there been a ton or so taken out for campaign purposes; but of the trade being supplied from the • that is ridiculous. Besides, it would I make any difference in the cost of tin \ plute if it'were true. Pig-tin is free, and it • would be cheaper to get it from the other 'side than from California." "How are prices of tin-plate affected by these alleged American manufactories?'' "Prices are about 15 per cent higher than they were before the new tariff' law. They not quite as much higher as the rate of duty, because just before the into operation the dealers secured large supplies of tin-plate, and thus, iu a •asure, overcame the effects of the Mc Kinley bill." "Do you think tin mining and tin-plate ufacturing will ever amount to much in this country ?" "They may in time, in a good, long time. Until then prices will remain high as Ion us the present tariff is in operation, they must go higher soon. I have bee disgusted with some of the the stuff they have printed jects of late. They do n< , strained by truth or common sense." : The Evening Post man saw also Mr. 4 Nathan Trotter, of Nathan Trotter 'Co., No. 86 North Third street; Mr. • Porter of O. B. Porter & Co., of No. 128 North Second street; Mr. Hall, of 'Hall & Carpenter, No. 709 Market street; Mr. J. Hail Rohr man, of J. llall Rohr* «te Son, No. 155 North Front and Mr. ßpering, of Gummy, Sparing «te Co., No. 1023 Market street. They all told the same story. They wore ready and anxious to get hold of Americ tin-plate or pig tin if there was any tho market, and they were tli . would be called on to handle it in the : regular way of business. But Mr. Trotter hail not seen any Tetnescal pig tin and was very confident that, if uny is being mined, it is only "for campaign purposes—not enough for commercial I use." Mr. Porter "had never ltcurd is mined ii d worked up for the id 1 fspapfrs for r\ ft.

In appointments to every grade and de partment, fitness and not party service should he the essential test and fidelity and efficiency the only sure tenure of office. Only the interest of the public service should suggest removals from offico. I know the practical dilflculties attendin the uttempt to apply the spirit of the civ service rules to nil appointments and vais. It will, however, be my sincere purpose,if elected.to advance tho reform.— President Harrison's Letter of Acceptance. What a shock it will be to President when he hears, must if the press and the public persist in keeping this tax receipt scandal stirred up, that the United States marshal for this district, the postmaster of Wil mington, tho private secretary of Sena tor Higgins, and various subordinate Federal otllcials have been mixed up in a clandestine deal (so clandestine that it was kept from tho "personal knowledge" of Senator Higgins himself) with a brace of dishonest Democratic tax collectors who sold out their party, (thoro you have it again), pocketed the money and then—more shame to them—didn't even f good we fear he pay their office rent. The United States marshal is tho chief of the Federal po lice for Delaware. Is his co-operation in this deal an exemplification of that "fitness and not party service " which should be " the essen tial test" of his qualification for that position? Suppose his predecessor, Marshal Newlin, had been caught in underhand transaction of this kind with a Republican collector who sold out his party and pocketed tho money, would not President Cleveland have bounced him quick But Marshal N< to make his head swim ? wlin was not built that ither was Postmaster Taylor. One cannot even imagine their beiug approached with any such proposition. Had they been and had they listened to it, they would have been repudiated and condemned by all self-respecting Demo crats, just as Dougherty and McKee have been. But where do wc find Re publicans repudiating and the Federal officials implicated in this deal ? -ay ; domains Frank Melbourne, the Australian rain maker, 1ms offered the farmers of west ern Kansas what looks like a reasonably proposition. lie will contract to supply forty counties with sufficient rain next year for a consideration of ten cents fail I know i, no pay. This is cheap enough for watering a dry land, and a convention of the counties interested is to he called to consider the proposition. Melbourne should not be confounded with the government rain makers who have been experimenting with explosives in Texas. Their plan is scientific and comprehensible; while Melbourne's system, which has been classified by a New York paper as the "hole in the stable roof method," is in comprehensible at least, and nobody but the inventor knows what, if any, scien tific claims it may possess.
