Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - September 24, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas 2 Hl'TOHINHON DAILY NEWS: WEDE8DAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 24,1890. ! H. W. Willett is now showing the largest and Most Complete Line of Furniture in the city, having Consolidated his large stock with that of C. W. Bittman, consisting of Furniture, Carpets, Draperies and Shades, Making a stock far superior to that of any ever offered in the city. Low Prices, Good Goods and Courteous^Treat-ment is assured to all. m i m mm m M , % , M -JL- m Next Door to the Grand. rsjsr m No. 12 North Main Street, M'KINLEY ON THE TARIFF BILL. An Kxlract from Hlft Speech *\n I[�>tnK NoitiiimtiHl for Itfi-oK'el Inn. Another purpose wo declared in Chicago, another pledge we made to the peoplo, to revise tho tariff on tlmliniM i>f Protection. How? Lot 1110 recall t In? platform: "By such revision as will tend to chock imports of such articles ay aro produced by our people, tlm production of which ^ives oin]iInytnnit to our labor, and release from import duties tlioyo articles of foreign production (except luxuries) the like of which cannot 1)0 produced at home." No one questions that the house has kept that pledge in every respect in the Ivll which is sent to tho senate of the. Uni'ed Stated. It hns lowered iutieawhen they were in tlio interest of the people, and it has had tho courage to raise them when to do so was to inaugurate or promote great industries and enlarge the tieldof employment for American men and women. Ifany doubt ever existedthnt the house tariff hill was apieco of American legislation for the benefit of the American people, and in the line of the country's largest prosperity, that doubt must have long since been removed by the manifestations of opposition which have come from tho leading and competing nations of the world. We said in our platform of 18S8: "We aro uncompromisingly in favor of the American system of Protection. We protest against its destruction as proposed by President Cleveland and his party. They serve tho interests of Euro]k-; wo will support the interests of America." We have given legislative sanction to this declaration in tho bill which has passed tlio house with a fidelity of purpose which even our enemies will not question. The public meetings which have been held in England, and the exhibitions of temper which have been witnessed in some of its great manufacturing centers, anil in the parliamentary bodies of other nations, protesting against our proposed tariff bill, must have convinced the most ignorant, or incredulous that our foreign rivals regard the bill not iu the interests of Kurope, but in the interests of America. They see nothing in it but a diminution of their American trade and a corresponding gain to our own producers. Of course it does not please other nations. It was not framed after that fn�hion. The Mills bill did. President Cleveland's Free-trade messages received only acclamationa of praise from the nations of the world. Our bill receives from them only condemnation and bitter denunciation. This is the precise difference-it was not mado to please other nations; it was framed for the peoplo of tho United States as a defense to their industries, aa a seenrity to their interests and investments, as a protection to tho labor of their hands and as a safeguard to the happy homes of American workmen. If it shall be enacted into law I venture tho prediction, which will ho fully verified, and which thoughtful men everywhere will confirm, when I declare that it will bring to this country a prosperity tinparalleled in our own history and unrivaled in the history' of the world. And let me assure you that the bill will become a law. A Republican senate will pass it, and a Republican president will put upon it his seal of approval as soon as it shall reach him, and another great pledge of tlio Republican party will have been fulfilled. IRISH INDUSTRIES AND WAGES. IXoit Ireland Has Item Iluliied by English Legislation. Thero was a recent strike on the Wa-terford and Limerick railway, at Limerick, where the engineers and fitters were receiving thirty-three shillings, or (8.05, per i^eck, and machinists were getting sixteen shillings, or �1.00, per week. They wanted thirty-six shillings and twenty-four shillings respectively, or $8.78 and $5.80, the same that men are getting in other parts of Ireland. The directors decided that they could not afford to pay the advance, and probably they cannot. How any railroad can live in a country as Bparsely populated as Ireland is, when engineers work for $8.05 per week and machinists for $3.00, probably no American can find out without going there to see, for we are not going to have Free-trade in this country. Before tho union Ireland had n parliament of its own which arranged a tariff to suit Ireland; it did not suit England, and we all know that like everything interfering with England it was a very food parliament, but under its laws they sailed ships to this country in competition with the English, and having much more capital than onr traders were very troublesome to them under tho fodera-.tion of the states before the adoption of the constitution. Now, though that country builds ships and its sailors contribute to the crows of nearly all vessels, it is not noted for its large ownership of vessels. Then Ireland possessed about one-third of the population of the United Kingdom; now it has one-seventh only of the population and one-twentieth of the wealth, though at both periods tho population has been and is about 5,000,-000, and fifty years ago it was over 8,000,000. After the union the English parliament adjusted the Irish tariff to suit English interests. There was no sudden shock about this adjustment Like the Democratic statesmen, who have learned from them, thoy did not propose to scatter want and famine on the laud at once; that would havo attracted attention; there was a moderate reduction of the so called prohibitory laws. It lasted through twenty-one years, but it. was certain: it was intended to destroy confidence, and it did it. No mill was rebuilt; no machinery was replaced; the industries of Ireland were moribund before five years had passed. The average yearly earnings of American workmen is JIMS, 51.11 for each working day; while iu Free-trade Norway, which takes all its manufactured goods from other nations, the averago yearly wages is only about $22, or 7 cents for each working day. In which eoun-tty can tlio most be laid aside? 1 Hfc 1 IN PLATE DEBATE. How llio McKinley mil Will Affect For. elgn Manufacturer.. Commenting on tho debate in tho senate over the duty on tin pinto The Evening Post says, after admitting by direct implicaton tho assertion of The American Economist that tho provision of the Mills bill taking tho present duty off from tin plate was aimed at our sheet iron industry: "They have someliow got hold of the Republican machine-probably by contributions to tho campaign fund." This is from a paper which never mentions the contribution of $30,000 mado to tho Democratic campaign fund by an agent of tho North German Lloyds, nor the remarkable extension of that company's earni^s for carrying the United States mails under the lato Democratic administration. Cut thero are undoubtedly very heavy financial contributions available to the opponents of an increased duty on tin plate. They do not, however, come from American manufacturers, for if they did we would miss the active interest displayed by The Post in this subject. According to tho speeches at the Llanelly water works meeting, held June tl last, whero "tho principal topio of discussion was the McKinley tariff hill, and the probabilities of tho clauses increasing the duty on. tin plate being agreed to in the senate," the prosperity of the Welsh tin plato makers depends on beating those clauses. Mr. Tregon-ing summing up the situation said: "Their destiny, however, was not in their own hands; it was in tho hands of tho congress at Washington, Ho might be looked upon in this matter as pessimistic, but thero was no doubt that something was going on in tho United States which, if carried out, would mean not only a 'stop week,' but a perpetual 'stop week' so far as a great many of the tin plato works in that neighborhood were concerned." Mr. Rogers, another manufacturer, in saying "the time would come when America would manufacture her own tin plate," recognized tho fact that all Americans could not bo fooled all the time, and that there is not money enough available in England to continue this country in its present wasteful practice of paying $33,000,000 a year to foreigners for an article we can make ourselves with American labor and American material. All European manufacturers will find their profits decreased by tlio McKinley bill, for they will havo to continue selling goods at about tbu old price, after paying increased duties, until new mills are started in this country, when they will have to sell for a less price. ENGLAND AND HER FARMERS. Tbe Leon. Hecelvcrt from the American Volley of rrotectlon. Great Britain has never for a day or an hour, sincothe beginning of her great war on her fanners by withdrawing all protection to their products, been without able and energetic protesters against that great iniquity, and their well directed efforts must tell in the not distant future. At present nothing seems so to exasperate John Bull as.the great lessons which this nation is teaching of how protection to home labor disseminates industry, intelligence and comfort among our peoplo. It was that feeling of exasperation which impelled Tho London Contemporary Review not many years ago to momentarily forget its customary courtesy to opponents and to curse us editorially in part as follows: "Wherever England turns, in the case of her own colonics even, she finds America, aud always America distinctively, iu her path of argument. It is assumed that everything is finally settlod when American prosperity is quoted to us, and the present writer can state from his own experience that tho one infallible resource of the controversialists on the other side of the Atlantic is to unfold the brightly colored panorama of America's well being. Some silly people among ourselves oven have had their intellects obfnstieatod in the same way. Surveying the whole scene, it may in fact bo soberly and sadly said that the politico-economical doctrines of universal interrelation and co-operation among mankind, which our chief thinkers have mode it the groat task of England to spread, would at this hour be farther advanced throughout the world if America were blotted out." So, evidently, thought Grover Cleveland, when in the interest of British Free-trade and American mugwunipery he paraphrased the above utterance of The Contemporary by sayiug to the American congress aud people, "It is a condition and not a theory that confronts us;" but America, and her institutions upon which those "conditions aro based." aro not to be scolded down nor "blotted out," but to remain na beacon lights to nations and providing homes for fugitives from British Free-trade, ivhich has, as by the evidence hereinbefore presented, driven British farmers from their poverty cursed homes to find shelter, food and comfort within onr hospitable boundaries. Run.ftin Wliciit. While the quantity of American wheat sold to great Britain fell off from over ninety million bushels in 1887 to fifty-five and a quarter million bushels in 1889 the quantity supplied by Russia increased nearly fourfold in tho same time-that is to say, from 10,854,G07 bushels in 1887 to 39,800,372 bushels in 1880. Not becaaia the United States had not the wheat to sell, but because wheat could be bought cheaper from Russia than America. Consumers were too hard pressed by poverty to give heed to theories of reciprocity in commerce. They bought their bread of those who sold cheapest, aud as tho Russian serf works for leas money than has to bo paid tho American farm laborer, not only have prices been hammered down, but Russian wheat-supplemented by more than 10,000,000 bushels from India in 1880-has been crowd-lug tho American product,; from the markets of western Europe. FATE COULD NOT HARM. tho body as a result of some diseased condition or of exciting causes. The simplest and commonest of such spots am known as freckles.

Thoy are tearing down old bouses all over the city to make room for the more modern house. While those houses aro being demolished thero is usuully a class of people who crowd around, eager to pick up the stray pieces of wood which come in their direction. Colored people generally predominate in this class, and many a family is thus supplied with fuel. While tearing down a house in the northwest section of tlio city recently the workmen were very much bothered by these "wood hustlers," as they term them. The "wood hustlers" in this case were composed, with but one exception, of small negroes. This exception was an old negro who had one leg shorter than the other, and was nearly bent double, but whether with ago or uot no one knew. He looked as if ho had worked hard all his life, but appearances are deceitful. The workmen became so incensed at the "wood hustlers" that they drove them all away excepting the old man. After a whilo the old man became more bold, and endangered himself in trying to get pieces of wood. One of the workmen spoke to him about it, telling him he would be hurt if he persisted in getting in the way. The old man mumbled out something, but paid no attention to the warning. Finally he got close to the wall and stooped to pick up a piece of beam. Just as he was stooping a brick fell in front of him, and ho narrowly escaped being hit. Seeing this a workman yelled: "Look out, ole man, or you'll be killed." "I doan't kare," replied the old man, and ho continued to confiscate all the wood that came within his reach. Again he barely escaped being hit with another brick, and again the workman shouted: "I done tole yer onst to git away from dere. The fust thing you know you won't know nothing." "I doan't kare," reiterated tho old man, looking around formore wood, aud, seeing some, in the interior of the building, he went for it. He had hardly passed tho door when a heavy beam fell in the place ho had just vacated, enveloping him in a cloud of dust. Several workmen, thinking that the heavy beam had pinioned the old man to tho ground, jumped down to render all the assistance possible. Imagine their surprise when, on reaching tho place, they found tho old man gathering the wood as unconcernedly as though nothing had happened. The workmen wore speechless for a while and then one said: "Look a' har, ole man, you'll have to git out o' thiB. We don't care 'bout losin' time crcarryin' yer korpus through the street." The old man looked contemptuously at the speaker, aud then said in a don't-give-a-contineutal tone: "G'way, niggers; I don't care. I jist had my lifo sured fo' forty dollars,"- Washington PoBt. 11.oily Crippled. A party of Americans, including three or four boys and girls, were not' long ago visiting an ancient church in a French provincial city. An aged beadle showed them the objects of interest. "Whoso poirrait is this?'' asked one of the girls, indicating an ancient canvas upon which the face aud form of a man in armor could barely be made out. "That," said the beadle, after stopping to take a pinch of snutf, "is the celebrated Grand Duke Anatole, tho founder of the church." "Was he a creat soldier?" "Yes; but lie had the misfortune to lo3e a leg or nn arm in every battle in which he took part." "How many battles did he tako part iu?" asked one of the boys. The beadle, who was expecting a sneeze, looked skyward a minute, then sneezed violently, used his handkerchief, aud answered: "Twenty-four!"-Youth's Companion. Dlncoloratlou of the Slcln. Between tho cuticle-the epidermis, that is, or scaifskin-and the true skin is a layer of cells which secrete from tho blood a durk coloring matter. The black races have this feature inoBt fully developed, but ovon tho lightest are not wholly destitute of it. Its complete absence characterizes the albino, giving ns occasionally a chalk white negro, the hair, of course, participating in the defect. As this pigment is also wanting in the albino's choroid coat of tho eye-normally a dark background for the retina, and essential to clear vision-he is nearly blind except at night. Thero is often a local absence of pigment, causing wldte patohes on the limbs and different part* of the body, Snch a patch on the bead may give rise to a solitary white lock amid a full head Of dark hair.
