19 A FREE TRADEK WHO TELLS TOO MUCH Tho Daily Commercial Bulletin of New Ydrk is owned and edited by a subject of Queen Victoria A Briton borfai for reasons of his own ho pre fers to remain a British subject rather than become an American citizen though owning and editing an Amer ican newspaper It is scarcely neces sary tosay that he is an ardent sup porter of free trade In a recent editorial he warns American manu facturers that the late Democratic victorymeans that the tariff will be adjusted upon a revenue basis and thatjcapitalists shouldbe careful about making investments Prudent manufacturers says the British edi itotOf a British organ in America heed of tho warning that after a brief interval their operations will have to be conducted upon a basis of reduced costs of raw material labor and plant and upon a correspondingly lower scalb of prices and they will therefore defer expansion of CSeir op erations until they can more definitely see what in these respects will be the future status of their Readers will please note the language American manufacturers arewarded that in view o tho probable legisla tion of the next Congress their operations will have to be conducted upona basis of reduced costs of raw ma terial labor and plant and upon a cor respondingly lower scale of This man is too truthful The role of the American free trader is to insist that free trade would not cause any reduction of Wages but the Comnagj cial Bulletin man gives notice that it will work a reduction of raw material lahor and plant Heis right oily ho have placed labor first in thenlist of things to be reduced The iirst effect of free trade or a revenue tariff wonid be a redaction of wages all along the line and in all occupa tions 4The American Tariffreform muzzle the blunt

also gave liberty and equality to the slaves The terms were ac oeptcd by the South as a generosity unexpected from a conquering admin istration The men who thus saved tbcirnocks are now denouncing a bill to secure the liberty guaranteed by the constitution The force bill is a bill gptitlecl bill to promote fair throughout the United and it is a force bill only where forceis needed to secure that B is no doubt whatever Unit if theltoliey of protection was aband oned by the Republicans it would be urged by the united labor organiza tionabf the country There is nothing to bo gained by excluding pauper labor and tyy admitting Urn products of that labor from just over tho Hnv Canada A QSEAT many American products are sold in foreign markets and the foreign market prices fixes the Ameri can selling prices The American far mer to day sellss his wheat in the home market for the price in Liverpool less the cost of shipping it there The American farmer sell his surplus pro ducts in a free trade market and is compelled to buy his supplies in a high per cent tariff taxed market Is it any wonder that farming no longer pays Pharos This idea has been exploded so often that is hardly worth noticing The Pharos last August in commenting on th6 rise in grain said Supply and demand is what controls prices of wlieait and the tariff has nothing to do with it Now with its usual in consistency it says the tariff oppresses the farmer There is an overproduc tion of wheat in the United States and the surplus is sent to England where there is always an underproduction If Liverpool the price as the Pharos says the United States would be in a fine position with free trade no home manufacturers a bigger sur plus of wheat Liverpool fixing the price and the United States compelled to buy and sell at prices fixed in Eng land THE Kokomo Saturday Journal is a new venturein the field of journalism Cooper Gross are the publishers Tho paper promises to be independent RAMS HORN SAYINGS Evil thoughts make an evil life Every thing that God does means sonwthinjr Every life is full of unfinished towers begun in opposition to God God sometimes keeps us waiting but He never stops the interest No man can do much to help men who docs not have nower with God Wo can never know Gods thoughts about us until we are willing to give up those the devil gives us about Him If the devil really lores any body he must think a good deal of the man who is afraid to trust God with money The widows mite was precious bo cause she gave something that was precious to her She gave all she had and that kind of an offering always comes from a heart that ia full of love You can never hone to come off vic torious in pitched battles with the evil one until you have put on the whole ariiior of God To go to

of Wall Street Bankers Fails W Gallaudet Co Forced to Sus Liabilities Esti mated at A UEAVV PAILUKB YOKK Xov street Is still a center of attraction When the Stock Exchange opened the same feel ing of returning confidence notice able Monday prevailed and even the announcement of the sus pension the banking house of P W Gallaudet fc Co had very lit tle effect on the market The house is one of the oldest in the city and its place of business is at 2 Wall street The failure is said to have been caused by Russell Saje and sever al banks calling in loans to the firm The liabilities are placed at 51000000 The firm was composed ol Peter M Gallaudet and Henry Fitch They assigned to C Elliott Minor The preferences are to Margaret E F Gal laudet and to BYaser Minor their attorneys 56000 Mr Minor said The failure was brought about by the call ing la of loans by the bank the sureties pledged for which had depreciated largely in value through the recent decline in the market Wo also have other securities but the decline In them also haa been so great that the banks refused to take them at alt The future of the lirm depends largely on tho action of the institutions holding these loans While It fs too early to make any definite state ment we think that the liabilities will be about tSOOOOO or 5003000 Notwithstanding the firmness of prices the presence of very disquieting rumors was felt One of these rumors had it that one of the most important banks in the street had been compelled to obtain assistance to a largo amount The apprehension caused by these rumors was increased when it

of the Van derbilt family entertain on a magnifi cent scale they never permit their children to remain up late at night are extremely careful in their education and in a word are fitting them for life as well as any mother or father conld do It is one of the rules in all the houses of the Vanderbilts that tho chil dren shall go to bed early and rise early The little boys and girls are up before seven oclock in the morning Their nurses immediately take charge of them see that they are properly bathed and dressed and thnn theygodown to break fast which is served at oclock It is an unpretentious meal with plenty of fresh milk eggs oatmeal and a bit of steak or a chop that will add strength to the physique and color to their checks After breakfast there is an hour of study There is something for these little ons to do at all times dur ing the day They go through their studies systematically and then aboit are takenout for a walk They are allowed to romp in the streets and in the parks to their hearts content At eleven oclock they are brought home and a light luncheon of milk and bread Is served after which there are more studies either French German or drawing and then another breath ing spell It may be horsebackriding or a drive out through the park and along the country roads Back they all come about four oclock and there is an other hour of study and then they are through for the day They are allowed to do just as they please until tea time when after their meal they spend a pleasant hour or so with their fathers and mothers and others who may drop in to call Promptly at eight oclook they are all in bod to sloop soundly and get up the next morning and go through the same programme So it is not strange that all the children of the Van derbllt family are further in advance of their little friends in the matter of ed ucation For they study study study all tne time Tney are all fond of music and most of them can play on tho piano The girls are learning to play on tho haip and the boys arc famous among their friends as violinists and banjo players If you were to see these chil dren on the street you would not for a moment suspect that thcy were other than children of parents in ordinarycir cumstances They make no display at elaborate dress The oldest of Cor nelius Vanderbilts daughters is dressed plainly in little pretty cheap drosses
