Foit Speakivci of the decline in the Knglish tin-plate trade, the American Economist ays : In the course of a retrosncctro-liistorical article the Colliery Ouardian. London, says: "We may, therefore, take it for granted that, the tin-plate trade of the Lnited King domat any rate, so far as the Tinted States are concerned has reached the ze nith of its power in the first half vear of IsOl." And we learn from 'Griflith's Guide to the Tin-Plate. Manufacturers" that of the 4? tin plate nulls winch were in active,opcra tion in June. H77 ''are closed until the end of July " It is said that the balance will close for one week during each of the four succeeding lnontlis. This is undeniably done to raise the nat ural price of tin piiites in this market. It is done by a trust, a combination, a syndi cate. But those who in the past "have charged that the .Standard Oil Trust was a direct result of protection will be found in the ranks of those "strong-siding champi ons in Chicago and elsewhere," who "In,St work and work hard" for the Welsh tin plate trust. arc even mure quick to dlstliuriilsh the diRer euee between a gentleman ami a rowdy, or a lady ami a woman, than arc the town people, ami they admire the one and despise the other as heartily as any one can do. How do they distinguish the difference? Why, In several ways! Let me tell you one In particular. When they sec a crowd gulvt along the mad whooping and yelling like a lot nf wild Indians accosting every person they meet with some In suiting remark, throwing kisses al every woman they see al.injr the road, we know are nut ladles and gentlemen of the town. And when we see a couple of younir men coming up the road In a biuiry, yt'.llng at the top of their voice, whip ping their horse on the keen jump, up hill and down, the foam flying trom him, and nearly ready to drop from exhaustion, we know that they do not rep resent the respcctahle element of the town, but that they are classed among the fools, who ought to be In jail for craelty to animals now in conclusion we would say to our town friends, don't taks us all for green horns vtcn you come out for enjoynent have a good time like Indies and gentlemen and the country people will treat you well and re spect you the same. Avosr. A tear ago every stocking factory in Chemnitz and all over Germany, according to the Drygoods Chronicle, was running full blast day and night. To-day the condition of the Chemnitz hosiery trade is demoral ized, They have reduced the prices of all cut and circular hosiery to a starvation point in order to compete with American goods. The stimulating effect of the tarill on our ow n industries is shown by Wade's Fibre and Fabric, which calls attention to the .transformation brought about in the knit goods district of New York in the past year. Manufacturers of knit goods ure stead ily empldyed, and the only drawback to their business at present is the low prices for which goods must be sold. A great maijy knitting mills are running night and day, and many more are running over-time. The commendations of the river men are not very flattering just now of Major Hand bury ' for sending the government snag boat to work on the Willamette river above Salem when there are no boats running on that route and will not be for some time yet, owing to the low water. What they want is that nil work for the present be done on the Kv.ii- h-low Hak-m, where by removing a ii" her of snags and doing a small aruo'.b t of work on the bars, navigaliali coul l !;f kept up at the lowest stage of wrakr. LETTKK FROM XA(XHBl'tt(i. Finding myself in the vicinity of Macks burg on Sunday, August 9th, and learning there would be Sunday Hchool, followed by a Baptist service, in accordance with my Usual custom I attended the same. The services were conducted by Rev. J. K. Hargreaves, of Oregon City. The attend ance seemed quite large, and the greater prrqiortion of those present seemed deeply interested, Hut my attention was most forcibly drawn to the dilapidated condition of the room in which we were worshiping. Home of the seats, by virtue of having lost their end support, were made to accommodate by overlapping some other scat more favored with under props. The room was venti lated by a number of broken window panes, and its general appearance betokened neg lect and indifference. On making inquiry I learned that the room above the school room had been built for general purposes, as public meetings, entertainments, religious services, etc., and that recently the school trustees had locked the school house helow against religion services. With such a public huih imr in thedistrict there is no need to use the school room for public purposes, which is often done to the iiiconvenicnceof both tvachersand scholars. It is to the interest of every taxpayer to see that the building is repaired. One part of a building cannot be neglected very long except at the expense of the other. A very trilling expense only is needed to put the structure in goon shape tor future use, and make it a credit to the district. Yours, A Visitor. Damascus.
