PROFITS TOO SMALL.
GREEDY NAIL TRUST WANTS MORE
American Nails Are Hold 81 l'er Kef Leu
In Foreign Than In Home Market.
Cheaper to Iluy In Germany and Pay
Freight Twice Acroaa the Ocean.
Ill unnikiiig of tho exports yesterday
Tho Times remarked tlutt American
tnudo naihi wero Belling uliroad at $1 n
keg cheaper than at homo. It in general
ly known that tlio Iron and Bteel trust
ban succeeded in raiNinu; the price of
nails, or rather continuing tlio ruine.
For since hiHt May tlio nail monopoly
bus been steadily at work.
Tho Iron trust lias raised tho price of
besseiuor pig iron from $11 in May,
18'Jo, to $13 in May, 180(1. Tho Nail
trust, however, has carried tho prico of
cut nails up from 70 cents to $3. 30 a keg
and of wiro nails from 85 cents to $2. 55
that is, while raw material has been
advanced 18 per cent in price, Wiro
nails havo been advanced 200 per cent
and cut nails 228 per centl
Tho exports of nails from this country
have been large. Even under the Mo
Kiuloy act in 1803 we exported 17,904,
848 pouuda In the years under the Wil
son act we have increased our exports
enormously. In 1894 they wcro 19,970,
419 pounds, In 1895, 21,202,605 pounds,
and if wo judgo 1890 by the exports of
2,073,280 in February, we shall this
year soil tho foreigners 35,079,300
pounds of nails.
Ill view of tho rise in price tins largo
export trade is remarkable Tho expla
nation, however, is furnished by the
proieciiouisiH tin iiiwivi n. rur, bub iuu
"Tlio long iind short of it is, accord
ing to the present prices of tlionail pool,
that a man using American nails in
Germany can buy tliem almost $1 cheap
er than ho can buy tlio sumo nails with
which to build iv houso in Pittsburg,
where the nails aro made,
"As a natural result, American whole
salers began to find it cheaper to buy
American nails in Germany, pay the
freight buck homo and resell them here.
"The scheme was qxralrd as follows:
Tlio New York firm would ship the
nails to a Hamburg hardware company
or to some other foreign put. Instead i
of being unloaded the cargo remained '
intact and wits sent back to Baltimore, j
Philadelphia or Boston, consigned to a
jobbing importer. Ho would then (lis
poso of tho nails to American wlu;lo
sulers at a rnce below that asia-ti 101 Worl(1 As l)resi,iontial candidate he
utiils for d( niestic use. As the nails ,)ns bmi forced to 1TStraiw his predileo
wcromado by Amencan faett ras, and tj t jko and to let fly all sorts of
bulk had not been broken on the other
side, no tiU'i'T was collected when they
wcro brought back.
"Wiro nails uro quoted in tho Ger
man markets nt ipl..r)4 to $1.00 nt the
mills, and tho freight to tho sreport
would liniko them liii.lier there.
"American nails wcro s;:ld to (lie ex
porter for $1.45 (price now t'i pet plo ( f
the United Mtutcn, $a.6u), and it costs
20 cents to send them across the Athtu
tio and 20 cents t:i return them. They
were landed back in America for $1.85
pi'i Kt'4. 111U 11114 II I nirviuiiOHiiiiip,
they probably cost about $1.00 net. Had !
tho nails been bought for domestic ufo 1
tliey would havo cost $2,45 (tho prico is
HOW $2.55 lit Pittsburg tllld $2.70 lit:
New- York), whiih gave tlio exporter a
margin of Do cents. "
This is not tho first time such a thiu:
has happened in this country. In ISC'.i
congress raised the duly 011 copper ore
The mines 011 Lake Superior were the
richest in tho world and could eiwily
havo supplied t lie United States lucre
cheaply and abundantly than any otln r
As u result of the "protection, " how
ever, the companies which controlled
tho copper mines formed a combination
and put up prices outrageously. At the
sumo time they shipped copper ubrotid
ut prices far below what they charged
at home. Indeed, the combine occasion
ally found competition in their own
product returning from abroad Their
profits wcro enormous, and tlio peoplo
had nmplo justification for regretting
that tho mines were not in Kuropc in
stead of in America.
Tho case of tho Nail trust is similar.
It fixes home prices at $1 a keg ubovo
its prices to foreigners. It finds its own
products returning from Europe and
undernelling it. Its profits are enor
mous, one concern making profits of
27' per cent on a capital of $4,000,
000 in 1805 and 30 per cent this year.-
But these profits aro not enough for
tho greedy trust. It wunts more "pro
tection," It must havo more protection
or it will fuil to mako 50 per cent on
its money. It sent abroad 2,973,280
pounds of nails in February, but it
must bo protected so it can continue to
churge$la keg more to homo dealers
than to foreigners. The protection it
wants, however, is protection against
itself ami the people. Kansas City

What Dlalllualan When the People Bee
McKluley Without HI llalol
It is said that Benjamin Harrison has
given expression to tlio opinion that if
SleKinley should bo elected to the presi
dency bo would not bo stiweeded in of
fico by a Republican. This opinion is
undoubtedly shared by a large number
of other prominent Republicans.
Tlio imaginary and entirely mythical
McKiuley who is now being so enthusi
astically boomed throughout tho coun
try is not the real McKiuley nt alL Tho
real McKiuley is an amiablo man, a
statesman of ono idea, and reputed to
bo a man of very poor executivo quali
ties. The imaginary McKiuley cannot
bo elected president becauso ho docs uot
If tlio real McKiuley, however, should
chance to be elected (an improbable
event) he would present such a contrast
to the imaginary individual that one of
tho greatest reactions that have over oc
curred in American politics would sure
If tho American peoplo once catch a
glimpse of McKiuley without his halo
on, there will come a national disillu
sion such ns tho country has not often
seen before. Tho McKiuley boom
ers have concealed tho reul features of
their candidute by arraying him in a
misfit nimbus. They havo enveloped
him in an aureole thut is too large for
him. But the people are likely to see
through this iridescent envelope the
real form and features of the man dur
ing tho campaign. Democracy will do
its best to clear away tho glamour
through which tho Ohioau is seen by
It is more than
likelv to succeed
If elected, McKiuley would probabl
prove u weak and powerless president,
both on account of his lack of natural
endowment for the oflieo and on account
of his untc-electiou pledges, which, it
seems, his managers are making indis
criminately. Tliero would consequently

In discussing The
World's attempt to get a straightfor
ward statement from McKinley on his
money views, he said:
"McKinley doesn't want to bo called
a goldbug or a silver bug, so he has com
promised on u straddle bug. "
A McKinley campaign button, made
on the lino of Reed's idea, might re
semble somewhat tho above picture.
The bracketed ( U. S. ) means that this
bug is peculiar to tho United States.
A Double Jointed Affair.
California is for freo silver and Mc
Kinley. Perhaps tho Reeds and Plutts
and Quays can now seo that our ex-governor
was wise iu not allowing himself
to bo forced into tho eastern gold trap.
McKinley on a gold platform in the east
and on a silver declaration iu the west
doesn't look precisely consistent, but
there is the tariff to bind him to both
places. No other Republican has a dou
blo jointed machine like McKinley's.
Doesn't Say a Word.
It would be easy for Major McKiuley
to write or to say, "I am iu favor of
maintaining the singlo gold standard of
value. " But he doesn't do it Phila
