A movement to. broaden the free deliv
ry sf the mails was stsrted by Post
master General Wanamaker under the
Republican administration of Gen. Har
rison, ft took the form of village frea
delivery, and wn more au extension of
city delivery to smaller communities thaa
a free delivery to farmers, but limited aa
waa Ita scope and euecessful tliougli It
was In lnrrcaing postal receipts and
postal facilities. It encountered Demo
cratic opposition. When Mr. Cleveland
came In, his Postmaster General fearing
lea effect In popularizing Itepiiblieau prln
clplea and disseminating Republican lit
erature, ordered It dropped.
(t was a Republican administration
that conceived and executed the Idea of
brightening the home of tlie farmer, ed
eating his children, increasing the valui
f his laud, compelling the iinprovenieu
of the road, and bringing the news of
the market an. I the weather so as to se
cure him a better price for hie crops by
delivering daily his mnll to him on h
farm. Every Dviii.wratic House of Itep-
resentativea since the idea was firs
broached of carrying the mails into the
rural district. ha declared against it.
The Forty-third Congress, with a Demo
crat from North Carolina as chairman o
the committee on postofilces and post
roads, proclaimed the plan Impossible,
and turned it down. Postmaster Gen
eral Bissell, Postmaster General Wilson
and First Assistant Postmaster Genera
Jones In the - Cleveland administration
all took nj the cry of extravagance and
Impossibility of execution. Consequently
tittle or nothing was done to give the
farmers access tp the mails nntil Cleve
land Went Out of ofllee.
When First Assistant Postmaster
General, Perry S. Heath took up the
rural service tinder the. direction of the
President and the Postmaster General I
Vlarch, ISO". It was languishing to the
point of extinguishment, and in a few
months more would have been starved to
death, like Mr. Wnnainnker'a village de
livery. The official reports of the Post-
office Department record that it was with
surprise that President McKinley and
thoae to whom he entrusted the adminis
tration of postal affairs, learned that
there was such a thing as an ex per1
mental rural free delivery mail service
They at once grasped Ira possibilities
and advocated Its Immediate development
and a Republican Congress generously
seconded their efforts. Under this vivl
fylng touch. It has grown until there Is
aot now a State In the Union that haa
not felt the civilizing and educational in
fluence of rural free mail delivery, and
aot one that does not desire a further
expansion of the service. On the 1st of
June, 1000. there were 1,200 rural ser
vices In actual operation and 2,000 ap
plications for an extension of the system
In process of establishment by specla
agents appointed for the purpose.
The appropriations for the rural free
delivery aervice have been Increased from
130.000 In the lineal year 1807-U8 to tM),
000 In 1 SOS-flO, and then to $40.000 In
1S90-1900, and lastly to $1,750,000 for
the present fiscal year 1000-01.
Three years' experience haa shown that
la well-selected rural districts the msils
eaa be distributed to the domiciles of the
eddressees or in boxes placed within rea
son a hie distance of the farmers' homes
at some cross roads or other convenient
spot at a cost per piece not exceeding
that of the free delivery In many of the
fltlea of the United States. In the vast
majority of communities where it has
keen tested, the rural free delivery ser
vice has obtained so strong a hold that
public sentiment would not permit Its (lis
eontlnnanee. It has been a revolution
and revolutions do not move backward.
It costs very little more than the old
tolonlal style of postal service which It
nperscde. and It Invariably hrlnas
large and compensating Increase In the
tmouut of postal receipts turned Into the
treasury. But even If It does cost more
than the obsolete old plan, are not the
farmers entitled to some of the benefits
ef the government which they help so lib
erally to support by their taxes? The
country can well affurd to continue and
extend a system which makes better citi
ens and happier homes and contributes
largely to the mental, moral and material
advancement of all the people.

According to the Manufacturer, the
prevent disturbances in China have em
phasised the necessity of American man
factnrera developing an outlet for their
goods In Central and South America
above what they now control. Produc
tion baa reached a point of development
that manufacturers are seeking every
eutlet for the production of their mill
and works. Quite a number of the lead
ing exporters are looking south for new
fields of enterprise. This U as It should

The manufacturers of the United
States are making their greatest record
lu this closing year of the century. Busy
workshops, smoking chimneys, factories
running on double time aud, In some
esses, the full tweuty-four hours with
three shifts of bauds, ore an evidence of
this; but exact proof is found in the re
port of the chief of the bureau of statin
tica, just Issued, which shows an enor
mous iucreane In the Importation of the
raw materials which they use in manu
facturing and an equally enormous In
crease In the exportation of finished man
ufactures. Importation of manufactur
ers' materials in the fiscal year 1000
were more than double those In the fiscal
year 1804 and, during the three fiscal
years lu which the Dingley law haa been
in operation, have- exceeded, by more
than 100,000,000, the Importa of raw
materials, in the three yeara in which
the Wilson law waa In operation, while
the exportationa of finished manufac
tures. In the three yesrs under the Ding
ley law, have exceeded, by more than
$.100,000,000, the exportationa of manu

Evidence from Official ftonrces.
Here are the official figures showing
the Importation of manufacturers' ma
terials and exportatlons of manufactures
In the fiscal years 1805, 180(1 and 1807,
all of which were nnder the Wilson low
tariff, contrasted with those during the
fiscal years 1808, 1800 and 1000, which
were under the Dingley tariff. The Wil
son tariff, it will be remembered, went
into operation Aug. 28, 1804, and the
Dingley tariff on Jnly 2(5, 1807, so that
the fiscal years ending June 30, 1805,
18'Jfl and 1807, were practically all with
in the operations of the low tariff and
those of 1808, 1800 and 1000 were prac-

The above table la worthy of careful
study. We have been hearing, for years,
from Democratic oratora first, that free
raw materiala would help the manufac
turers, and, aecond, that a protective
tariff destroya our chances In foreign
markets, yet it will be seen by thia table
that the Importations of "Articles In
rude condition for use In domestic In-
lustrles" amounted. In the three yeara
indcr the Wilson free trade law, to $U15,
105,152, while In the three yeara under
he Dingley protective tariff they amount
to $728,821,352. Look also at the narrow
column, which Indicates the percentages
of the total Imports which there raw ma
terials form, and you will see that they
form a much greater proportion of the to-
al Imports under the Kepublican system
of protection than under the Democratic
system of free trade. Why? The an
swer la simple enough. Under the Dem
ocratic low tariff, absolute free trade In
ome particulars, many manufacturers
were compelled either to close their
works or reduce their ontput owing to
he heavy Importation of manufactures
from abroad under the low tariff rates.
Hence the small consumption of raw
uaterial in manufacturing. Thia dlffer-
nce of more than $100,000,000 In the
uantity of raw materials Imported in the
hree years means a difference of several
hundred millions of dollars In the amount
f goods manufactured and hundreds of
millions in the amount of money paid to
vnge earnera in the various manufactur-

JONES AND HIS COTTOH BALE.
How Did He (Jet His Trust Stock and What Did lie Pajr fir It t
The composite Chairman of the Popu
list Democracy, Senator Jonea of Arkan
sas, Is still resenting with considerable
beat the charge that aince be la such an
important officer of the American Cotton
Company (capital 17,000,000; John K.
Searles, lately treasurer of the sugar
trust, grnnd mogul), it must be that he
is a high priest in the trust temple, or,
at least, that be la a reckless, abandoned
plutocrat. To do Mr. Jonea entire jus
tice, we suppose that the American Cot
ton Company Is not a vicious trust which
deserves to be destroyed, any more than
a number of other corporations of $7,-
000,000 cspital In the hands of former
officers of more monopolistic trusta. Pre
sumably the American Cotton Company
will make all the money It can. will mke
dividends. Indeed, npon Ita f 7,000,000 of
stock. Mr. John E. Searlea can be trust
ed to look after a little thing like that,
even if Mr. Jones devotes all of his at
tention for the next three months, or for
the next three years, for that matter, to
Populist Democratic politics exclusively.
The phase of Mr. Jones connection
with the American Cotton Company
which we would like him to explain is
this, ratner: How much of the $7,000,-
(KM) of the stock of the company has he
got, how did he get it, and what did he

Plenty of Money Circulating.
President McKinley's letter of accept
ance called attention briefly but effective
ly to the per capita circulation of money
to the United Ktatce. Thia per capita
circulation marks the high water of
American prosperity. It la now $20.83
for every man, woman and child In the
country. To show Its growth, In spite
of the predictions of the calamity free
silver cries, this table Is appended:

We have never known a gentleman of
Mr. Jones' financial prospects to grow
rich suddenly except by some means of
this kind. In other words, and in Ihv
plain, it is fair to Infer, until Mr. Jones
denies it, that he is "it." neither on ac
count of his cash,- nor his property, nor
some Invention of demonstrated value,
but rather on account of his "pull" or I.I

this until Mr. Jones denies it. iMvaiise
