The twine for the self-binding barves
ter is made of sisal crass, which comes
from Yucatan,, The demand for it has
grown enormously of late Tears, and at
the present time it has become such a
necessity thai any failure to furnish it
would resuItJn a serious loss to our wheat
The importation of sisal grass for the
last four Tears have been as follows:

Our cordage companies are taxed f 10
per ton on the raw material, and pro
tected by a tariff of 35 per cent from
foreign competition. This tax on the
raw material was 23 prr cent in 1886. 15
per cent in 1887 and 10 per cent in 1888.
because the price of the raw material
abroad has more than doubled within the
past two years. The increase in the cost
of the raw material lias Ix-en followed by
a corresponding increase in price of
The increased demand not having been
met by an increased importation of raw
material, the mills hoping for lower
prices, all of the available stock of grass
on hand has been used up and our mills
are only importing what they need as
they require it. The country dealers,
hoping for a break in price, have held
back orders, and the output of one com
pany in this city is 13.000 tons less than
it was last year at this time, while the
output of the other mills is in proportion
The amount of twine in the bands of the
dealers is very low, and the mills are not
making preparations for heavy orders by
carrying stock. Unless orders are soon
received there will not be twine to be had
at any price to harvest the - crop. The
increase in the price of raw material is
owing to the supply being limited and
smaller than the demand. The increase
of the price of twine has been by con
certed action the formation ox a trust
they deny to preserve the full benefit of
protection, which authorizes them to
charge their countrymen 35 per cent
more than the twine is worth abroad.
The cost of raw material having dou
bled everywhere, the cost of foreign
twine has increased. As the foreign
price has been advanced to that of the
American, the price of the American has
been shoved ahead so as to keep 35 per
cent beyond it. This is, of course, right
and proper. It is to enable them to do
this, and to compel the farmer to pay 35
per cent more than the twine is worth,
that the American mills receive their 3
per cent "protection." They must do it,
because they pay a heavy tax on raw
material, and from one third to two
thirds of this revenue farmed out to them
must be paid into the treasury. They
pay three-quarters of a cent per pound on
raw material for permission to tax their
countrymen all they like under 35 per
cent on the manufactured product. They
"farm the revenue," and of course do it
at a profit to themselves.
The steady increase during the past
three years of the cost of the raw mater
ial abroad, and the consequent advance
in the price of twine threatening to be a
serious burden to the farming communi
ty, the democrats in the last congress,
under the lead of Mr. Mills, voted to put
sisal grass on the free list, and to reduce
the duty on foreign sisal twine to 25 per
cent. This would not affect the protec
tion granted the twine mills. Their per
centage of profit would remain the
same, but the burden to the farmer
would be greatly lessened. It was a cut
of 10 per cent in the protection or tsx on
the foreign twine.
At this and other reductions of like
nature in the cost of sugar, salt, lumber,
rice and other materials entering into
their expenses, the republican farmers of
the northwest rose in their wrath. Thev
would not have it.
The republican senate, in obedience to
their wishes, so amended the Mills bill as
to raise the tsx on sisal grass from $15
per ton to $30 and the protection of the
twine mills from 35 per cent to 40 per
cent duty on foreign sisal grass.
The republican farmers of the north
west last November wanted dear twine.
not cheap twine. They approved the
senate bill, and will doubtless cheer
wildly for dear twine next winter when it
passes the republican house of represent
tatives. The treasury does not need the
revenue from the tax on sisal grass, and
it was put on by the republicans and will
be doubled by the republicans solely to
increase the cost to the republican farm
er of the twine made from it, because be
wants his supplies to cost more, not less.
In the meantime the-republican farmer
is not bappv. lie defeated the Mills bill.
which would have prevented any increase
In the price of twine by relieving the
manufacturers of the duty on raw mater
ial and reducing their protection corres
pondingly; but he must wait until next
winter before be can double the present
burden of the twine nulls and increase
their protection. He should be content
until then with the normal increase in
price nnder the present tariff, which Mr.
Mills tried to prevent. He should con
sider even a small increase better than no
Strange to say, be is not content. The
proverbial steer is not a harder "kicker"
than he is at the advance in the price of
twine ordered by the mills not because
the increase is not larger, but because it
is so large! Indignation meetings have
been held in nearly every county of nine
states, and state associations have been
organized in five, pledged to oppose by
every lawful means the present advance
in price, which is not one-half what be
voted for, and much less than he wanted
last fall. He even proposes to go to the
length of not using twine or harvesting
macnines. Hays tbe Umaha Vauu Jiee
"The proposed course of the farmers, if
it should become general and to make a
successful fight against the trust it must
be general would undoubtedly involve
quite serious consequences to them. Tbey
cannot return to old methods without
suffering great inconvenience and more
or less loss. Tbe self-binder is one of
tbe most valuable of labor saving inven
tions, and is nearlj indispensable to the
extensive wheat grower. To do away
with it would necessitate tbe employment
ox laoor to an extent that would cat up
tbe profits of most farmers, and there
would be also loss from having the grain
improperly bound. Undoubtedly the
aggregate loss to the grain producers of
the country for having to return, for even
a single year, to old methods would be
very great. But it is hardly questionable
that it will be wiser to make a contest at
once against the twine monopoly, at
whatever cost, than to tamely submit to
be robbed by it. and thereby encourage
further exactions, regulated only by what
the combination may conclude the farmer

its tax to f 30 a ton rattier than leaving
it at $15; which, in all probability, op
posed a reduction to 25 per cent in tbe
duty on twine and favored an increase to
40 per cent If it favored the Mills bill
and opposed the senate bill, it should at
least be honest and explain to its readers
that they have a taste merely a taste
in the present small increase in price of
what it is working to give them in un
bounded measure, not in twine alone, but
In everything. It should tell them that
when tbe senate bill passes this winter
and tbe duty on raw material is doubled,
with a corresponding increase in the duty
on foreign trade, that the cost to the
northwestern republican farmer will be
next year nearly if not quite double what
it was last year. It should explain to
the republican farmer that be be has got
exactly what he voted for, only not quite
so mnch; and that a cheap coat makes a
cheap man, and cheap twine makes cheap
wheat; that what he needs in order to be
rich Is more work for the same money,
not more money for the same work, and
that to put by his harvesters and do his
work by hand will increase his wealth
and pay off bis mortgage . That is what
tbe republican papers said during tbe
campaign. That is what tbe republican
farmers in the northwest believe. The
republican papers should be consistent
and the republican farmers should not be
permitted to see that the tariff is a tax
even on twine. T. E. Wilson.

What it May Mean.
It appears that in Davenport there
seems to be the same influence attached
to the visit of the Burlington officials
Thursday night as outlined in tbe Argus
of last evening, as witness the follow
ing from Democrat Gazette:
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy officials
are not in the habit of riding about the
country simply to kill time. They know of
pleasanter ways of enjoying themselyes.
Their Visit to Davenport was for busi
ness. They know that more freight bills,
and in larger amounts, are pain in Dav
enport than any other city in Iowa, and
aware of this, they naturally want a slice
of tbe business, and as large a one as
they can get. Just what means will be
used to get this business hasn't come to
the surface, but the necessary informa
tion will be furnished the shippers in due
time. It may mean a new bridge, a ferry
boat for transferring cars, or a large
warehouse. Of each and all these Mr.
Ripley aud Mr. Eustis know more than
they are willing to tell reporters. Davs
enport, Rock Island and Moline pay tbe
transportation companies railroads and
steamboats more than $3,000,000 vear
ly. With this fact before them, is it any
wonder that the carrying corporations
keep an eye on Davenport and vicinity?

The cakes of Ivory Soap are so shaped that they may be usea
entire for general purposes, or divided with a stout thread (as
illustrated) into two perfectly formed cakes for toilet use.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the
Ivory' " they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remark
able qualities of the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and insist upon getting it.
