Canton News Democrat (Newspaper) - December 20, 1911, Canton, Ohio Dage two the news Democrat. Canton. evening december 20.13n Tariff rate Kilts the preacher then marries him prohibitive report of Board submitted to Congress by Brest Jent Taft. Cost is High 1ieke All oth or countries Duce Wool much cheap than America. Or Washington dec 20�?-Declar ing Many of the ached ii Lee in the Payne Aldr leh Tariff to be Quot pro a Welve a the report of the Tariff Board on Wool wan submitted to Congreve today by president Taft. A to the difference in Cost of production at. Home and abroad it bets Forth that in nearly every Woolen product from the dirty fleece up to the finished worsted Eloth it Ros 8 rant ii More to produce Wool and Woolen goods in America than in any other country on Earth. It costs j 9 rent to raise a Pound of Wool in Ohio and in Australia considerably less Titan four Cen to. These difference continue throughout tire Woolen Industry. While american labor is much higher paid than in Europe the Board Anda that it its not As efficient As that in european Mills about one Dollar of every four paid to the retailers of men s clothing goes to the manufacturer of the cloth. A Milt retailing for $23 la hold at wholesale by the manufacturer for $16.50. It Conte him $14.�?~ 2. Thus in general tile manufacturer of cloth and clothing is absolved by the Board from the greater part of profit in the High coat of clothing a my it is attributed to the retailer. The Board states however that the High duties on Wool have not resulted in retail prices As High an might be expected. Competition has kept prices Down. This Competition a stimulated when High duties made Woolen manufacture very profitable. Then foreign capital came in and built Mills. For All Woolen entries the Hoard recommend specific duties instead of the present method of assessing and Valorme rates. Thad Valorme system makes duties High when priced Are High and the consumer Moat needs Relief although tire producer in Best Able to Bear Competition. When Price Are Low and the Connarn has need of foreign Competition then under the and Valorme system duties Are Low and the foreign Competition it it Lea in. The Board advocates Quot specific duties a a the Best and easiest Way to offset the difference in coat. Of production Here and abroad. Because of the difficulty in classifying fabrics however the Board recommend a combination specific and and Valorme duty on Wool clothes a Low and Valorme rate on cheap goods increasing1 to Tho highest rate on expensive goods. Exactly the reverse policy was adopted by the Farmer of the i Ayne Aldrich Tariff. Experts for the Hoard studied Wool growing in Australia South America South Africa great Britain and other machinery than do the English. Turning Wool into tops costs 80 per cent in a in America than in England and the Cost producing yarn hero ii about twice the Cost in England. The figures of the Board show that t St costs from 60 to 170 per rent More to turn it Arn into cloth Here than in England. The ame difference is shown in comparison with the figures for France but the difference is not so wide in a comparison with the German Cost. A in ii Quot ready made clothing Industry the cloth is the largest single.

On this basis about 25 per cent of the Price paid the retailer goes to the manufacturer of i loth the Cost of material labor j my All other expenses undergone in converting material into finished Gar-1 dents is 80 per cent of the net whole Aie Selling Price of the finished product. Out of the remaining 20 per rent the manufacturer must his Selling fierce fights on Oyster Craft or ricers find la do x Stan be in >1-1.wi to half Bister of the Earl of Liverpool controller of the Kings household who created a sensation in London last july 15, by failing to appear at Church at the time appointed for her marriage to the Rev.

Hawkins Tho lower grades that would be exceedingly useful in the manufacture of woolens in this country and if so used might Dis place in Large measure the cheaper substitutes now so frequently employed in that the Payne Aldrich Law bases its raw Wool duties on the Assumption that Greasy Wool when cleaned shrinks an average of two thirds. This shrinkage allowance is much too High the Board finds. The average shrinkage of the imported wools is about 4k Lier cent and of All Domestic wools be to w Eon 511 arid 60 per cent. The rates on Wool waste rags and shoddy Are called prohibitive and the report states that the present Tariff practically excludes from importation All lops and yarns except the most expensive worsted yarns. A the Bame is True Quot the report says a of Low Grade Wool and cloth for menus Wear. A considerable Quantity of the Fine and expensive fabrics Are imported. In the fiscal year ish these did not constitute three Lier cent of the total consumption of the United the report then discusses the relative merits of specific duties levied on weight and and Valorme duties these duties Are applied in combinations to fabrics and the result is that on cheap goods the Payne Aldrich specific duty is sometimes in excess of the total value of raw material on the basis of Cost of production in this country. Quot consequently a the Hoard says a the customs yacht a old glory a a reports tales of cruelty. Washington dec. 20�?whispered i tales of cruelties which for months have drifted in from the desolate Bays and creeks along Chesapeake Bay j where the Fleet of 1500 Oyster boats i Rake the Beds during the Winter were verified when a.

In its first three Days of work the patrol boat arrested 21 men for shocking violation of the navigation Laws. J one Captain was arrested for attacking a Crew member with a Hatchet. The Man jumped overboard and was lifted from the icy water just in time to save his life. The government put a patrol on the Fleet after John Mcnamara a family Man of williamsport., pa., was drugged and shanghaied in Baltimore and drowned when he leaped overboard to escape. Three weeks later capt. Aldie Dorsey of the Sloop on which Mcnamara was held prisoner was set upon by his Crew.
