is to the human what tho buffer is to tho
railway car; and which is always to us a
cause of sincere admiration. Whether
it be the man that stops one on the street
to tell him that he'll pay that two years'
subhcriptiou as kou as his wife has had
an expected baby, and incidentally asks a
loau of five dollars, pending that inter-
eating event; or the eastern idiot who
writes asking for a description of our
soil, climate, resources and people with
our opinion on the advisability of his
immiprating, (and forgets to inclose a
stamp), the exhibition of cheek always
elicit- our unbounded admiration.
But sometimes the thing seems to bo a
little overdone. There is c superlative
uegree or cueek which may run into gall,
and when a man manifests gall it always
changes our admiration to distrust.
When the cruel fact is borne in upon our
shrinking, sensitive soul that the alleged
human is trying to gouge or is crowding
the condescension afforded to the ordi
nary beat who is trying to get something
xornotmng, tuen is tbe golden bow,
broken md the "silver cord loosed, or
words to that tff.-ct.
For this reason we enter a feeble pro
test against the crowding of the fire-gilt,
Damascus blade eastern man. In liL
eagerness for business he is apt to disre

life and try to gouge, steal, lie and gen

Tha appropriation of $150,000 for the
breakwater at Port Orford is to be uti
lizid. Vork is to ba commenced on it
next spring under the superintendence
of Captain Cuarles H. Powell of the
United States eugineer corps. When thin
is finished, with the railroad connecting
Port Orford with Ko-seburg, which is to
be commenced at the sime time, the Co
lumbia river will bn deprived of her ship
ping trade, as the deep water ships will all
go to Port Orford. S. F. Chronicle, 9th.
"About this time look out for rough
waather," .jay the aim inac-,and about this
time look oat for such flyers as the above.
The Asromv is glad to know that the
breakwater at Port Orford is to ba com-
Fileted. California's iron bound coast sad
y needs appropriations, and in co nmon
with every dweller on the coast wo are
pleased to learn that the terrors of ocoan
navigation will be eomewnat mitigated.
But when tho Chronicle starts in talk
ing abiut what w 11 happen on tho Co
lumbia river, and about "Jeep water
snips," it starts on a topic about which
it knows nothing and shows its ignorance.
Poisiblv tho wish is father to the thought,
in the Chronicle's f dse statement.

Tha Amorioaa Tin-plata Association,
of which John Jarrott in the general
agent, haa discovered a dTroot evasion of
the sections of the tariff law regulating
the duty on tin plate. Last summer tho
appraiser's department of tho Philadel
phia custom house discovered that large
tin shoets were being "entered as tin
plates. The chief examiner ruled that
they wero tinned 6heets "and should be
entered at the rate of section 151 of the
tariff index "new,' which provides the
rates for plates and Rb&t-iron. This
rate on sheets not thinner than No. 20
wire gunge is 1.1 cents per pound; thin
ner than No. 20 find not thinner than No
23, 12 cents per pound; thinner than No.
25 and not thinner, than No, 29, 1.5 cents
per pound. It is proTidedrthat on all
such iron and steel sheets or plates, when
galvanised or coated witlrzinc or Bpelter
or other metals or any alio? of these
metals, the duty shall be-of a cent per
pound additional. This ruling was af
firmed by the treasury department on
July 14th last, and also at a subsequent
date. Since that time these tinned
sheets have not been imported through
the custom house of Philadelphia, but
have been comipg in steadily through
the custom houses of New York and Bos
ton as tin plates. Mr. Jerrett claims
that tinned sheets are an essentially
different article from tin plate3. Tinned
sheets, he says, are rolled out
on what is known as sheet milt
while tin plates, terne' plate and
taggers iron are. roiled out on what in
known as a tin inihV hence they are dif
ferent even in the prooess of manufac
ture. Tinned sheets are generally
handled in tho trade in precisely the same
manner as galvanized sheets, calamined
sheets and sheet-iron. That is, it ib
bought and sold by the pound, and ac
cording to gauge. Tin-plates and terne
plates are bought and sold by the box,
ranging in sizes from 14x10 to 23x3) and
24x31 inches. Plates, when boxed, are
known bv their brand-marks, such at
-IC." "IX," -IXX," eto. These brand
marks are intended to designate thi
weight of the plates in tbe box. Thus, a
box marked "IC," 14x1a!, and containing
112 sheets, would weigu 103 pounds. A
box marked "iX, 14x20," and containing
112 sheets wouid weigh 136 pounds, or 23
pounds more than IC. ich udditiona
cross renresents an additional weight oi
21 pounds to the box. Tho price of tin
piates is at so muou per dox. it hj cost
$5 IX would then cost $6.50, and each ad
ditional "X" $1.50. Tin plates were run
in longer sizes than 'Ax'li, while thest
tinned sheets are from o0x60 to 40x112
inches, or precisely the s ime size as gal
vanized and all other sheet-iron. The
weights given are contained in a ful
statement of the caso which Mr. Jarrett
is preparing for transmission to the treas
ury department..' He says 'that on even
pound of tinned sheets admitted as tin
plates tbe government lost from four
fifths of a cent to IK cents, according t
the quality of the article imported. The
aggregate loss on- this account Mr. Jar
rett declines to estimate, put says it u
already equal to thousands of dollars pei
annum, and was .growing at an alarming
rate. Lhe tinned sheets are used in th.
manufacture of milk cans, "and have al
most entirely taken tha placo of sheet
iron in the manufacture of gas-meters
and similar articles. Importers have
been very quick to grasp the idea, and
the shipments eich week are larger than
those of the week previous. Mr. Jarrett
has called the attention of th appraisers
at New York and Boston to. the decision
in the Philadelphia case, but no copy of
the ruling of the department has been
received by them, and they 'consequents
know nothing about it. Mr. Jarrett'o

This city has hardly begun to fol the
good effects of extended r&ilrcad com
munication, but every day the benefits
conferred by them are being more and
more appreciated. Yesterday the Pacific
Express Company shipped two boxes of
fresh salmon, 130 pounds to the box. to
NewOrlesns, the same will arrive there
in five days. The paople of the Orescent
city will doubtless appreciate, like the
rest of tbe world, the flavor of Colum
bia river salmon. Another shipment of
two large boxes of salmon was made to
London, England, by the Pacific Ex
press, via tho Short Line. The fish are
consigned to Groves & Co., wholesale
fish mongers, and willl go to their des
tination across tbe tlantic in fifteen
davs from tho time they left here. The
freight charges on this shipment will be
but eighteen cents per pound, which is
very cheap considering tho distance car

After I bad read it carefully the Major
asked me what I thought of it.
"It means war," I replied, "between
the time-honored system of long time
and high prices, and cash, quick sales and
small prohts. Which will win in the end
remains to be seen. You, Major, as an
old resident of these parts, accustomed
for years to buy mighty liberal, and tak
ing your own time to pay, woald find it
hard to plank down tho cash every time,
even if you did get your truck 10 percent
'Well', Asa Stackpole." replies Bliz
zsTd, "I haint so blamed sartin about
that. Mariar and I were figerin' on
that t'other day Mariar, you know, in
spite of anything I can do, will kite
round to Bradshaw's and she asked me
to get her a ham. I forgot it and she
went out mad, and to make things squar'
I kim over here and got tbe hog meat;
but when I toted it home I found her
tbere afore me with another ham, and a
blamed sight better one, too, than yourn.
6ha paid 18 cents a pound cash for hern,
four cents a jound less'n whpt you charg
ed. This sot us to considerin of the sit
ooashun. We found by cpmpann' your
aggers with Bradshaw's 'that we were
payin' you ten per cent, more for every
thing we got, besides a liber'l shave for
."Well, Maior," I replied, "that's all
right. I dop't charge you any more in
proportion to what I pay for goods than
Bradshaw does. I don't tax you no
more interest on tho time bills than the
jobber does me."
"I knows that, Asa," ha said, "I knows
that: but if I takes the notion into my
nsad that by bavin for cash I kin save
two or three bund'ed dollars a year,
you bet I'm a goin' to buokle on to
the bullion. Sposin' I've got a parcel
of wheat, now I aint gom' to hold
on to it for n rise of mebbe five per
cent., while I'm payin' out fully 13 per
cent, extry on every dollar's worth of
truck I buy end on every dollar I owe.
Now take a squar look at the sitooa
shun. You buy on long timo and offen
let yer accounts run over; you pay p'raps
3 or 9 per cent, interest on bills overdue,
and a heap more for everything you buy
than wor you to plank down the tin every
time. Whereas, wor you a cash or short
time buyer you wouldn't care a dem f.r
any body, and could trade wherever you
liked, besides gettin' a likely discount on
all yer bills. I've been figunn' a heap on
this 'ere credit questshun lately. Mariar
has opened my eyes to the advantages of
a new deal all around, not only to save
coin, but to keep up with the times. My
old noshuns of xrien'ship whar bizness in
concerned, has gone with my hu'r and
oaird. Since I've ch tnged my pussonal
style my ideas have underwent a reform,
in a payin' all my debts. I'll stick to
you,Asa, as long as you do as well by
Mariar a3 Bradshaw does. Now's yer
chance to prod op yer slow pay custom
ers. Set me up afore 'em as a Hhinin ex
ample of reform. Strike into the new
channel that is bound to drift every biz
ness man on tbe coast as takes it to pros
perity. Close up all yer old accounts,
and when you go down to the bay with
plenty of money in yer pocket you'll find
a dern sight more favor among yer librM
oldfren's than you ever had before."
