As Distinct Castes In
America as In India
By BASANTA KOOMAR ROY. tn East Indian Who fttudled
Journalism In This Country
CUE United States has aa DISTINCT A CASTE SYSTEM
AS INDIA, only you Americana cannot tee it. It takes a
foreigner unused to your ways to judge your manners and
customs in an unbiased light. The whole so called "civilized"
world pities India because of her rigid caste system.
It is truly deplorable, but is it much worse than the state of affairs
that exists in the United States!
HERE YOU HAVE A MONEY AND A COLOR CA8TE.
The MAN WITH FIFTY MILLION DESPISES THE MAN
WITH ONE MILLION, the man with one million looks down on
tho man with a thousand, and the man with a thousand spurns the
man who hasn't anything. How many.Americans would break bread
with a negro or live in the same house with a Chinaman! Are not
your bitter race wars and your policy of refusing admission of the
Chinese to this country but expressions of a flourishing caste system!
Domestic Cotton Fabrics Sold
Americans as "Imported"
CHEATING THE CONSUMER
Lata Than 2 Par Cant Comaa From
Abroad, but Amaricana Pay Ex
orbitant Prica For Homo Gooda Ba
causa of Docaption and Prohibitive
By ROBERT KENNETH MAC LEA,
IForroerly consulting expert of tho tariff
New York. . .-The prohibitive
tariff, revised upward by the I'ayne
Aldrich law, permits and fosters
wholesale frauds upon the American
consumer of cotton goods.
Less than 2 per cent of the cotton
fabrics consumed In the Dnlted States
cornea from abroad, because the pro
tective duties have been made ao high
that Importation is unprofitable.
Vet fully one-third of the cotton
piece goods roIiik over retail counters
la sold as "IMPORTED" or under
oames Implying a foreign origin.
Thia dacaption ia ganerally perpe
tratad upon the consumer for tha pur-
poaa of obtaining exorbitant pricaa for
The consumer, believing the goods
ire Imported and knowing tnat tne
tariff adds excessively to their cost,
pays 50 to 100 per cent more than a
fair price and does not suspect that he
la being cheated.
Drains tha Pooketbook.
Let ua go straight to a specific ex
ample of the operation of this fraud.
Take the tariff board's cloth sample
No. 50, described as a "printed dim
ity." This Is a medium priced cotton
fabric known to almost every Ameri
can housewife. What woman or girl
hasn't possessed a dimity dress within
the last few years? And If she went
to the cotton goods counter and
bought the material by the yard she
no doubt saw such signs as:
................ A . . . .
TTTf TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTf TTTTT
X IRISH DIMITY. i
The World's tariff editor visited with
me a department store in a New Eng
land city of 100.000 inhabitants and
found recently a counter piled with
these goods, placarded:
REAL IRISH DIMITY, I
1 eta. T
We procured snmples of all of them.
There was not one piece of imported
goods In the lot. Investigation proved
that the store buyer bad purchased
ttiLse "Irish" dimities from a Boston
Jobber at 10 cents a yard and that they
were made in a New England mill.
Here was a supposed "bargain" in
a supposedly "imported' fabric, on
which the retailer was taking a profit
of 00 per cent!
This hnppens to be a rubric repre
senting the highest efUclency In Amer
ican manufacturing. It is a class of
gooda tn which we can compete ad
vantageously with any country In the
world. The tariff board's Investiga
tions discovered on sample No. 50 an
American cost of production of 7 1-3
cents yard. In all the mills Inves
tigated the board's representatives
found that the low and high costs of
manufacture of this fabric did not
vary half a cent a yard.
Who Gsta tha Profit 7
Tha manufacturer of thin American
llmlty, that Is sold as "Imported" and
"Irish," does not get the excessive
profit. In some Instances the manu
facturer dots, but here he sells to the
lobber at 8 cents, taking ouly a nom
inal manufacturing profit of two-thirds
cent a yard. The joblier sells to the
retailer at 10 cents, a 23 per cent mar
tin for the Joblier.
In Canada, with 25 per cent tariff,
tottoa fabric costing 10 cents a yard
would be sold to the consumer at 12
or sometimes at 15 cents If the patters
happened to be in special demand. In
the United States, with Its prohibitive
tariff, the retail price Is always much
higher. The standard price retail is 15
cents for the fabric wholesaled at 10.
But when the tariff is excessive It Is
54 per cent on this printed dimity the
dishonest retailer can "get away with"
his deception and double or more than
double his normal profit by selling the
domestic article as "Imported." The
retailer knows that be could not buy
a genuine Imported dimity of this
quality from a foreign manufacturer's
agent in New York for less than 15V4
or 10 cents, and the trade would re-
tall this at 23. tie compares the do
mestic and foreign fabrics and finds
the American made Is equal in every
respect to the fabric from abroad. So
he aays to himself. "Why not sell It as
foreign goods at a price that will make
It attractive r
Mill Man Pockets It.
In some cases the manufacturer
takes the tariff favor for his own
pocket. Tariff board sample No. 34
Illustrates this No. 34 Is a fancy
white goods used for dress wear. Its
manufacturer encountered a fair de
mand for this material during the past
season. Table No. 109 of the tariff
board's report shows a manufacturing
profit of 00 per cent It costs to manu
facture this cloth 12.10 cents a yard.
The mill refuses to sell to any one ex
cepting the Jobber, and through this
channel the cloth reaches the retailer
at 22 to 25 cents a yard. The retail
er charges the consumer 33 to 39 cents,
according to location and local compe
tition. For comparison take tha value of tha
fabrio on weight. At the manufactur
ing cost of 12.16 canta a yard one
pound of thia gooda ia worth $123 aa it
laavaa the mill. Whan it raachaa tha
aonsumar (at 39 canta a yard) tha
prica hae baan booatad to $420 a
The manufacturing cost of this cloth
In England is practically the same as
here, yet the English manufacturer
sells It for 15.44 cents a yard, the job
ber at 17.26 cents and the retailer at 22
Bear in mind that the "difference In
cost of production st home and abroad"
In this class of fabric represented by
sample No. 84 amounts to nothing,
but the Psyne-Aldrich tariff on it
equals 65.89 per cent, or 8 cents per
Fancy goods of the type of sample
No. 84 are products of the Ltppltt-Mc-Coll
class of mills. The rayne-Aldrlch
blU raised the duty on this cloth from
85 to 55.89 per cent. Is it any wonder

were Interested In amending the
Payne bill. New York World.
