Tuesday afternoon the supervisors of the

in the woods just west of the city in a con

tigation the following facts were brought
to light: The men cume to Owosso from
Liinsinjz in October lust, intending to go
north to find work, but for some remon de
cided to stny here; they located on the
f;irm of Mrs. J. Stewart, near the line of
M. C railroad, built a hut in the woods
with the boughs of pine ticcs and have
lived there since; the hut is five or six feet
across it cither way, divided by pieces of
carpet into two parts, in one of which they
have a fire and tleep curled around it: dur
ing most of the winter they have had noth
ing to int. but pancakes made of middlings.
When asked if they wanted to be helped
they replied "no;" saying that they had a
little money left and preferred to remain
there than go to the poor house. The
wonder is that both have not frozen to
death long ajro. as the place h open all
around und the only protection or covering
they have had is the carpet given them by
some of the people of the neighborhood.

You nay you will not seek tho aid of
statistics to refute my statements. You
had letter let statistics nlone in this case.
In 1800 the entire consumption of wool in
the United States was onlv M.OOO.OOO
pounds. In 1880, over 400,000,000 pounds.
This shows better than your operat ions or
mine the development of the woolen in
dustry of this country. So much for de
velopment of the woolen industry prior
to and sinco 1SG0. You do not dispute
that the masses arc clothed better and
cheaper than ever before, but you say It
Is because of the "Improved appliances"
now in use. The cost of clothing, like
other manufactures, Is made up from ma
terials entering into the garment and the
labor of making up. The prices paid to
day for making overcoats, undercoats,
vests and trousers hre higher than the
prices paid In 1HC0. It is the development
of the woolcu industry in the United
States that has bo reduced the cost of
clothing. You have done your share in
this development. Why make statements
that all manufacturers and dealers know
to be disingenuous and unwarranted, if
"Now, il depends upon tho standpoint
you occupy, how yon look upon the prop
osition of free wool. If you believe in
tbi principle of protection to American
lndiwtiUs in the adjust mnt of the tariff,
then it becomes a matter of equity as be
tween the manufacturers and the wool
Ki-owtr. At the present low price of
wool the duty on wool is a fraction more
thau half the duty on woolen good. In
1860 the production of wool in thin coun
try was sbout 00,000,000 pounds: in 1867,
100,000,000 jwmnds; it roee to 180.000,000
lrands in 1800, Dd then fell off to 150,
000,000 in 1ST2. After 1873 the produc
tion of wool ncrAMl each year, reaching
330,000,000 pounds In 1884. For ten years
previor to inclusive, this country
produced four-fifths of its entire consump
tion of wool. Certainly wool growing is
is an American industry in, as large, pro
portion as wool manufacturing, and as
mucb entitled to discriminating protection.".
