Tariff anil Protection.
For twenty years after the
thirteen states had achieved their
independence, no effort was made
to alter the conditions under which
American trade was conducted
with the rest of the world during
colonial days, except that Eng
land's monopoly was abolished.
At this time the local industries-
of the infant republic were con
fined to those articles which could
not be imported, but events oc
curred then . which exercised a
deep influence upon the commer
cial world. The war between
France and England resulted in
the embargo and non-intercourse
acts, and shortly afterwards war
between the United States and
England followed. The carrying
trade between the two countries
was blocked and hindered and
prices rose greatly. All branches
of industry in the United States
received a powerful stimulus, and
manufactures sprang up every
where like mushrooms. At the
close of the war protection was
necessary in order to prevent
wide-spread disaster, and the tariff
act of j 810 furnished the needed
relief to "infant industries' In
1S10, 1S2-J and 1S2S further meas
ures were passed still cxagorating
the amount of protection. In
lS32.the tariff was somewhat iow
ered, but in T.S40 ;i protectionist
agitation was inaugurated on the
ground that American workmen
could not subsist on wages which
would enable them to compete
with the cheap labor of Europe.
Daniel Webster and John C. Cal
houn were the most eloquent cx
ponsnts of this idea and its suc
cess was due in a large measure
to the ability of their advocacy.
The present condition ol Ameri
can manufactures is that thev
have been developed to such an
extent as to more than meet the
demands of the home market, and
production has in a, measure be
come stagnant, so that the time
seems favorable for commencing
the gradual reduction of the tariff,
so that American manufacturers
may be enabled by cheapening
prices to go forth and compete in
the foreign markets of the world.
Tax on Tin Plate.
The duty under the new tariff
upon sheet iron is from 1.1 cents
to 1.05 cents; the :vv duty on
similar sheet iron coated with tin
or lead and known as tin or tome
plates is 1 ct per pound, so that
the duty on fully manufactured
plate is a little less than on the
sheet iron from which it could be
made. The S. F. Merchant thinks
that a half manufactured article
ought to pay less duty than one
fully manufactured, while the
policj of protecting and encourag
injr home manufactures obtains.
One of the great advantages of
making tin plate in the United
States would be that salmon' and
fruit canners would be able to set
plates for their purposes that would
not cut to waste and those they
cannot get from the English
makers. If it is not desirable to
make tin plates in America then
foreign tin plate should be ad
mitted free of duty as block tin is.
Of the 5,000,000 revenue received
from tin and terne plate duties, a
considerable portion is a direct tax
on fish and fruit canners, and an
other portion on other branches of
Xrade such as lard, coffee, and
3'east powder, in putting up which
tin containers arc largely used.
What is the use of a tax on an
import which interferes with sev
eral trades and does not protect
any American industry.
Oxk of the most singular trav
esties of law that has latch- come
under ourobservation is afforded by
arecentordi nance passed by the city
council of Sacramento, California.
Though the law of that state makes
gambling a misdemeanor, punish
able by fine and imprisonment,
ye the Sacramento Soions have
passed an ordinance licensing all
gambling games carried on in
that city. Here we have the singu
lar spectacle of a municipality au
thorizing what the state forbids.
Should the gambler refuse to pay
license, he can well ask ""What
are you going to do about it?" for
the collection cannot be enforced.
"Were such a stultification as that
to occur in Oregon what a good
joke it would be on the Webfoot
Sixty public men and several
doctors in St. Louis have been
questioned by a Republican re
porter as to the benefits of hot
water as a morning drink before
breakfast, amd all agree that, as a
rule, it is excellent for a disor
dered stomach resulting from ex
cess in eatinjr or drinkin"-.
It is announced that three of
the fifteen volumes of tlie census
reports will soon be ready for dis
tribution. At this rate, suggests
the Chicago Tim-, the report for
1SS0 will be completed -in seven
teen and one-half years, or by the
middle of 1807.
