Mr. Martin Koran, who noses as alalsir

llenco .Mr. l oran regards tliu bill as a
had bill an "attack, in short,iion Amer
ican industry." Just so. Kveiy bill over
nrcK'nted in tho InteicHts of thu millions
against tho rapacity of tho few has Irhii
denounced us u "bad bill." Thurmaii'H
bill against tho continued evil practices of
thu railways was a kid bill ; tlio interstate
commerce measure was a had bill. In
short, every ineasiiro calculated to glvo
lalsira chance is a bad bill in thu eyes of
thu ignorant, tho coirupt, or self-seeking.

Sm Tho arrival of Mr. Clans Sprockets
in thu l'ast with thu heralded intention of
building a largu relluury in thu Held of
! thu Sugar llellnerios Co., has caused a
sensation at this particular time, ami
' much speculation as to tlio success of such
a project. It is no new tiling to content
I platu thu erection of another rullnery;
I thu namu of Mr. Sprockets In connection
I with it is tho only now fouttitu. Thu
1 erection of a lellnerv in llaltlmoro or
Philadelphia lias been talked of for a
year or two, but for onu reason and
another has nuvur got bevond a certain
point. Thu principal objection was in
tho fact that tho refining capacity of the
country was in advance of thu eonsuini
tion, and that slnco I8SI thoro has been
llttlu if any proll't in sugar rellning on ac
count of thu competition among ruliuers.
, The year ISS.'I, following tlio burning of
'Tho Harrison. Ilaveincyer A Co.,iellnery
I in Philadelphia (Sept. L'2, 1SH2,) ami pre
I ceding the completion of lho largo lellnerv
oi .Messrs. I lavemoxer iV r.itior, eiocica
to take tliu place of their lellnery but tied
in January, 18H2, was a very prosperous
year for lellners, as tho refined produc
tion was kent bv tliu help of a private
combination of rollncrs, below thu con
sumption of rollnod sugars dining the
most of tlio year, and tho averago dill'er
oi ico hi price between centrifugal sugar
mid granulated in 188.'! was l?,,e. per
pound, ami from January to OctoW of
that year this diU'ereiico was always over
lo. per pound.
I Centrifugal sugar repiesents tho stun
; dard for all raw sugar, and granulated
thu standard for all refined, ami it is
generally conceded by sugar men, ami
, conllrmod by fads, that thu cost of refill
ing is represented by Jul!, per niuiiiI dlf-
leienco between these swo sianiiaiiis.
Tho profits of rellning in 188.1 were there
fore very handsome. Tho end of 18-U1,
and the following years to 188.'!, saw these
rellneilcs rebuilt with a much eulargad
capacity, and tliu rellning capacity during
this iK'rlod was in excess of demand, as
Is continued by thu range of prices. In
1NHI tho illlierenco between tho two
I standards was reduced to an averago cf
I -ic. iter Hjund for tho year. In 188.r tho
I diirorciico was I educed to an average of
1 3(iC jier isiuiiil for thu year, It 188(1 to an
i averago of ll-Klc. per pound, and in 1887,
I to Octolier 1, an average of ?u-'. lxir
J poiiid, thus barely covering thu cost of
miinufauturo for these latter years. At
only two iorlods slnco 18S-I has tho dif
ference lietween tho two standards risen
to 1c. ier iKiuiid or near It. Onco dining
188(1 tho diHorouco for a few weeks was
U ll.lc. ier )iiinl, caused by the labor
strike, which forced tho refiners to close
a calamity and onco during 1887 tho
ill ll'ei onco rose to 7Hc. per pound for a few
days, by tho burning of thu llavumeyer
Migar Hennery a calamity.
A I out Octolier (I, 18S7. thu public Ix-gau
to beliuvo in a combination; rellued buy
ers became frightened and bought the
refined market up rapidly. ThodiU'crcuco
between thu two standards on October II
was ie. ier immiiiiI, or lMc. loss to lho
rolluer, but by thu lillh tho dlfl'eruuco
rose to lo-lltc. er ixsiiid, ami by.tho'.'lith
to 1 .'t-Klc. pur H)uud, but by the l!7th
raws had riwn, partly in sympathy with
refined and partly on account of the strong
statistical position, so that the diflereuco
between centrifugals and granulated was
reduced to ?4c. jnsr otuid, tho averago
illfleienco for tho month of October being
V- iHir iHiiind, or, say, tv. mr dsaiiid
profit to rollncrs. In .November lho dif
ference for each week was .,(.., lll-ldo.,
ue., -JuC, i:t-lllo., giving, say, trifCl-Kic.
prollt to rollncrs for tlueu weeks of the
month. In Decemls'r tho illlierenco was
i:i-lll(Uri-l(te. ior Kiiud, or, say,
It-KKiio-KU'. jmr ixiiinil prollt. Thu Trust
took full control of tho markets hi January
of this year, and thu average dlU'oroiico
between the two standards hi January
was 1 :t-l(ic. (sir pound, and in February
Ite. jier iKinni, a prollt of ?uc. ier
pound, a notable fact lielng that the
"Trust" aro iiialntainlng steadily a dif
ference in Price between lho two stand
ards, which was only attained In former
years by toiuisirary calaniitius. The
Trust may thoioforolsj consldured a jstr-
nuiueni calamity unless a icgisiaiuie, a
Congress, a tariir bill, or several Clans
Spreokols ntop hi to remove it, Ono
Claim Siireckels, with one refinery, cannot
do it. Tliu Trust controls 7H lK;r cent, of
thu business, and thu consumption of
thu coiintrv has risen 'M per cent, dining
the last six years, anil tlio time is very
near at liaild When tllO lelllllllg capacity
of tho country will have to bo Incicased
again to meet the consumption. Already
a few times in thu last two years all the
refineries havo run to their full capacity
without over-supplying tho demand,
'rhis increased capacity will no doubt Imj
made by the Trust themselves, if not
I done by others.
I .Mr. Snreckels, or another capitalist,

A writer foils "how to ouchro wasps. "
lie will Ibid that it can't Ih done with a
Uuiiittti or Ship Itnllwiiy.
Tho system of carrying burdens on ship
wagons is receiving attention, and, It is
argued, if a vessel can safely carry a heavy
freight over stormy Keas, where half her
hull is sometimes out of water, pounded
by tho waves that break upon her decks
or driven iixn her abeam, tossing her In
their fury from crest to crest, and droj
plng her suddenly into grout "troughs of
tliu sea." It is idlu to supposutluit she can
not safely carry her burden w hen lifted
gently into a 'cradle.' mid Isirne smoothly
and steadily along over solid rall&of steel.
It is customary to speak of the sea as a
ship's "native element," hut no ship
was over yet built in the wafer. Ship
railways, however, have now passed lo
yond tho stigo of meie tcloulillc specula
tion. Tho air is full of shin-railway pio
jecls for all parts of the glolH?. Tho shin
railway over the Chlgueco Isthmus is al
ready under contract. A ship railway
lias also lioon surveyed across the Florida
eiiliisula to save thu (100 miles of dls
tauco around and through the straits.
Tills, wo are assuted, is a ino.t practi
cable route, and llio railway can Ihi built
for about one half the estimate cost of a
ship canal. Hut tho gieat woikiiiall
this programme, both as to tho magni
tude of its construction and its lestills, is
the Tchuimtcpcc ship railway of Captain
Kails, now in the Intuits of Captain K. I..
Corthell as chief engineer. This Is a
scheme w hich Is regarded by competent
judges us sound mid well planned, though
It is one of icmurktihle originality ami
M'iucss. Perhaps It is too much as yet
to say that the age of shipcanals Is giving
way to Unit of ship railways, but M do
I. esseps can hardly lie oxectcd to feel
quite at ids ease in the piesonce of this
new and vigorous movement. 'the Iron

A decision of eousideralilo inteiest was

York Supreme Court in the case of Tho
People vs (iill et a!., a prosecution for
conspiracy. This was a case In which It
aiijieaicd that one llartt, a foiemaii in a
shoo shop, was pieveiitcd by the Knights
of lather from scenting cmplovuient at
his trade by means of coercion exercised,
over employers through tln'eats of stilkes.
Tho court held the delendants guilty of
conspiracy, saying: No doubt oxlsls of
the right of workmen to seek by all jxwi
bio means an increase of wages, and all
meetings and combinations having that
object in view, which are not dlslin-
