The Oerman miners, like tbe miners In
this country, are "protected" by a high
tariff which restrict traile and reduces tbe
wagea of the workioKmen to tbe mini

tbat a tariff wall is essential to a coun

With the Immense demand on tbe
treasury for pensions end for building a
navy, the government will need to retain
all its present sources of revenue, and It
niay be necessury to levy new tales or en
large the public debt by Issuing more
bonds. This certainly is no time to talk
about the repeal of taie on ll.juor and
tobacco.
The above appeared In the Chicago
Tritmnt. The W,. of tbe same city,
In commenting on It. warns its readers
ttat tbe taxpayer must fortify himself for
greatersaeriflces. "When Orover Cleve

WashinoTow CITY, Oct m The annual
roport of the commissioner of pensions pre
pared by Commiesioner Tanner haa been
mads iiiUiic. He recommends new legisla
tion to rectify inequalities iu rates.
"Eighteen dollars a month," be say, "is the
b ghest rate ot pension which may be pro
portionately divided for different dH.-reee of
disability, IffU 'b disability or disabilities are
not equivalent to th loss of a hand or a foot
I , however, a pensioner bas lost a band, for
which existing law now provide the rate of
$10 per month, and bas also received in tbe
sei vice and line of duty an injury ot the
bock, for example, wbi -b would alone en
title blm to a pension of i-4 per month, he
oin receive no rate in excess of t'to a month
from tbe combined disability resulting from
the loss ot bis band and bis said
injury, unless, by reason of thum, be ia
totally helplaas 01 so nearly so as to require
th coustant aid aud attendance of another
person, for wbicb degree of disability th
rat of f V) a month can now be granted. It
will b seen tbat tb pensioner In such a
case actually receive notning for said in
jury, as the loss of his ban I alone entitled
him to the rat f.'I0), wbich ia tho highest
allowable rate under tba law for both disa
bilities. Numerous other Instances could lie
ei tad to abow tbe unfairnesa in rate now
provided by law, and I think tbia statute
should ba amended so as to permit tbe rate
of Ti per month to tie proportionately di
vided for all disabilities which ar shown to
have beeu incident to the service and line of
duty."
Another Cus f Ineo,nnlltjr.
An adjustment of rates for total helpless
ness ia recommeoded. Tbe injustice and un
fairneas caused by the law ot June Id, 1h),
should be corrected. This act, be says, litu
i s tbe right of pensioner to receive t'i per
month to those wbo were receiving $."il per
mouth at the date of the law. "No provision
is made for grading this rate, be says, "for
persons wbo were perfectly helpless on tbat
dab-, but n receiving (V) at tbe time, an I
none fia those who bave b-coine totally help
I. since that data. The auomaly ia pre
sent 1 of two men, equally disablod, possi
bly living aide by aide, the on receiving
per month, and the other 'VI per mouth. To
state thi rase ia to make all the argument
necessary to ahow tbe absolute necessity ot
an amendment of tbia act."
Pensions for All Disabled.
Tbe commissioner also proposes to pension
all soldiers who wer disabled. On tbis poiut
be says: "As tbe war period rece las from
in and age and ita attendant infirmities
afl c: the veteran wbo served bis country
faith! ully and well a quirter ot a century
ago, it ia a very serious question whether tbe
government doe buu ju-tice in limiting tbe
application of the pension laws to those dis
abilities only which were contracted In the
service and line of duty. I earnestly r acorn
mend that a pension be gnuted to every
honorable discharged soldier and sailor who
a now, or muy hereafter, become disabled
and without regard to whether sucti disabil
ity ia chargeable to the service of the United
State, or bns been contracted since dis
charge therefrom."
Throe Hundred Clerks Wanted.
Tbe commi'saioner earnestly renews the re
quests made by bis predeceseoi for ad II-
tional clerical force, asking specifl.-allv for
K) additional clerks, and 111 j i-itillcition of
thia request adds: "Considering tuat there
are now pending s.V.Oi'J claims or all classes
and that it w twenty -four years since the
war closed, it seems to me there are sum
rient reasons for asking that additional
force be put upon tbis work to enable tbose
entitled to a pension to get tbe bene tit of it
while they live."
Tbe report says tbat the numlwr of pen
sioners on tbe mils at the close of the year
was sHi'i; additions during the year were

"It k a most friendly act" be replied "It

No Mistake Alleged Details.
Chicago, Out 1W. Tha Herald says that
although nothing bas been made publio con
cerning it, a meeting of th barbed wire
manufacturers is said to bave been in ses
sion in tbis city for several days, and ooe of
tbe most gigantic trusts ever organixsd in
this country is about to be formed, if, indeed,
its organization is not already complete.
Lleren of tbe forty-two mills engaged in
barbing wire. The Herald says, have en
tered into a combine and have agreed to sell
no wire or wire goods to the thirty-one mills
not admitted.
Washburn Gives His Pledce.
Washburn, of the Washburn & Moen com
pany, of Worcester, Moan, who owns all
th barbed wire patents tbat are ot any
practical value, has pledged himself not to
ssue to any one outside of ths combine sny
icense for tbe use of bis patents. For this
pledge tbe trust bas agreed to bear all ths
expense of defending Washburn's patents
in any suit that may ba brought to contest
but rigbt to them.
Five Rod Mills la the Combine.
Tbe business of tbe trust haa been divided
so as to secure tbe greatest possible produc
tion. 1 here are in tbe United Suites but
five mills that manufacture the rods from
which all kinds of wire are drawn. With
these five mills Washburn bas gone into
combination, and haa taken into the pool be
side ail the pullers and drawers
of wire and nail manufacturer.
Cutil other bar mills are built and it re
quire a vast am.Hiut of capital and con-
siderable time to complete one the mills
outside the trust will not be able to con
tinue business.
The Price Already Advanced.
The price ot barbed wire bas already been
advanced tS a ton, and wire nails bave gone
up from So to 40 oeuts a keg. On all other
kinds of wire there baa b-jen a proportion
ate advance. Th farmer will be affected
by the organization of thia trust more than
any one else, bnrlied or fencing wire being
more extensively used than any other kind.
It also fills in w hat little gap was left them
by the twine trust, and may be tbe means of
forcing harvesting back to tbe stage from
which twine binders removed it Thou-
nds of acres will remaiu unfenced on ac
count of tbe rise in wire wbicb this trust
brings about
Th Mills in Jollrt.
It is said that the Ashley Wire company.
of Juliet vrill bave to close as soon as ita
contract for prison labor runs out Home of
tbe barbing mills have closed already, and
their men are employed by the new syndi
cate. Tliera will be three mills for barbing
wire in Juliet, tbe Euterpriss Manufactur
ing company, Lambert Bishop & Co., and
tbe Bakers. There will also be on mill at
St Louis. Some of the mills will b con
fined to tbe manufacture of barbed wire.
some to merchant wire, other to making
wire nails, and so on through tbe list
Control of the Patents.
Washburn, Moen & Co., are about tb
oldest wire manufacturera in the United
State When barbed wire was first intro
duced Washburn began to secure control of
ita manufacture bv purchasing patents He
bought all tbe fundamental oness, and owns
the greater part of tbe 10J or more tbat
bave followed. Tbe machinery for barbing
wire, of which be haa control also, is made
at great expense. It would be impos
sible to devise a machine of the kind
needed tbat bis pateuta would not cover.
The most valuable patents for barbing are
known as tbe Keely and tbe Gladden. The
Keely patent wa purchased by Stiles Si
Calkins, pf this city, and tbe Gladden by
El wool, from whom it passed to W asbburn.
The rods from which wire is drawu can be
manufactured in tbis country, it is claimed.
1 cbear thau in either England or Ger
many, and besides there is a duty of (1.1. M0 a
ton on all wire rods imported into thia
country.
Tbe Herald states that ita information
comes from one of tbe oldest wire manufact
urers wbo was not let into the combination.

A year of bliss with bis American wife
seemed to be plenty for Terence, and again
he was successful in tbe divorce court,charg-
ing, as before, tbat bis wife bad deserted

A short period ot meditation on the cold
comfort of single blessedness caused tbis
wonderfully nervy man to take unto him

man again entered the Courts, got a divorce,
and smiled at bis freedom.
