Speaking of the manu- inetms of liis family acquiird its pi-cseut for- tune, Mr. Chamberlain gives the following incident iu his1 com- mercial "At llie time 1 am speaking llie Americans had a duty of abnut-100 per cent, on scievis. That to protect (liis pool- iivJiistry, to keep it in-the country for the benefit1 of the working classes. "Well, in spite of lhat duty of iOO per cent., we were'-ublc lo send screws there, and did send very largo quantities. -What happened? The American manufacturers here :md they said, 'We arc making 100 per cent, upon our capital. If you continue to send screws lo America we shall, of course, be obliged to reduce our prices. Thnt will shut you out, bnt'il will reduce our profits. That won't be yo'od for'either of us. Nciw.jleViis make a bargain. We'll pay you'so much a year to sit still, and not seud a screw lo America.'

And llicy- did raise the duties io about 120 or InO per and then, of course'.'oiir income ceased, and were shut out. now I want you to see who are the losers in this tliing. Not the American manufacturers, who were able lo make 100 per cent, upon thetr capital and pay us R handsome subsidy, and uot the foreign manufacturers who received the handsome subsidy. The only people who suffered were the working classes of Jhe United States, who had to pay more for every screw .they used, and even- manufacture in which they were engaged ed and trammelled by the additional cost lhat was put upon their naleiiiik. They, and they alone, fjorc the burden of this tax upon their .industry and thc-ir labor. Well, gentlemen, if other people choose to cut oft' their lails, arc you going to he so foolish? 1 tell you that :iriy.proposal to lax commerce is a proposal profits in the pockets of particularly favored As a further sidelight on the much debated question as lo the rate of wages in free and protected countries, the following part of the same speech is illuminating: "1 travelled ahrotul at that weiil to-French-and German and other factories, and I knew.all Ihat .was gqing on, and in every ease the wages of the'working people who making the same, article were sonic j cases one-half of what we were anil ihe time in every case' longer, In France, for instance, they worked twelve hours a day -when we. were working nine hours.
