served a hcatnan standing on a plank
busy painting the ship's side, and
misconstruing the mate's order, ho
uulushed the line that held the
plank in ixwitloii, and turning to
the officer exclaimed, "He's gone,

admitted, is conuislng.
In the present tarifT dlscushlon
great weight is nttached to the duty
on raw nmtc-riaK Thoe who have
devoted most thought to the subject
and are best able to express an opin
ion, tell us that the free listing of
raw materials will Increase the sum
of our manufactured products, en
hance wages by creating a more act
ive demand for labor and reduce the
cost or living. Gen. Grant in his
annunl message or 1S75, defining
raw material, says: "I reftr to
those articles which enter Into man
tifacliircH or all sorts. All duty paid
upon such articles goec directly to
the cost or the articles when manu
factured here, and must be paid by
A plain reasoncr would take raw
material to consist or articles gath
ered rrom the mine, the plain and
Die fores I, upon which no labor has
been expended in fitting It mr the
use or man. Cotton and wool come
under this category, also logs, stone
from the quarry and crude ores from
the mine. They are produced by
nature, and no labor has been ex
pended on them save iu gathering
or exlraetlni: them, anil nerniuis
transporting them to the place
where there they can be worked
Hut your protectionists de rlgueur
will not concede so much. They ar
gue that raw material Is a commod
ity unknown to political economy.
A protection writer, away down In
Maine, cautions his readers against
the expression as "a catch word to
1 1 It-It people Into the support of the
free trade party." This writer's
logic Is so original that we will pro
duce it portion of Ids article. He
There is no such thing as raw
mateiial In the sense In which the
term Is employed by the champions
oi llie .Mills in ii ; inni is, wool,
lumber, marble, chemicals, Iron,
lime, Max, and the other articles
which we are told manufacturerti
should have free, are no more raw
materials than the cloth, houses
and locomotives Into which they are
fashioned. All of them, when they
are In condition to become mer
chandise, have been made valuable
by labor, or, In other words, have
Senator Piatt, of Connecticut, usid
some such confusing argument In
the senate during the present
session. Said he: "The tree iu the
forest, the rock In the quarry, the
ore in the mine, when reeiicd from
their native condition by the Indus
try of man, and carried to the place
where they can be shaped luto
proper usew, are no longer raw
material. They aie Infiioed with
the splilt that bus brought them
Into the transforming focus of man
ufacture and Invention; they have
become a pint of our civilization.
Theax that felled the tree, ami the
explosive that detached the rock,
relieved these articles from their
former crudeness; they are now
merchantable they have the
quality of value, ami they are to lie
rated as manufacture."
The reader will precelvc that a
dltllculty encounters the learner as
he llrst addic himself to the
study of the tartll. Haw material
and liMiiufttcturett are generic terms
in lineal clawtllcatioiis, and the

GOVERNMENT CLOTHING STOREa
United SUte SoUlcn flnppliod
Prioe with Good Good.
Tho largest clothing, boot and shoe
store la thu country U run by tho United
States, though the aell things down at
cost prices, and there is no profit in It.
Erery army reernltlng station is a branch
store where supplies are dealt out. It is
different from ordinary stores. In that the
United States treasury furnishes the
money that buys the boots, hats, blankets
and clothes, and the money that buys
from tho United States also comes from
tho treasury Besides his pay each sol
dier in tho regular army has an allowance
for clothing which varies from $178.85 to
$228.40 for his five years' term. This U
only from $35 77 to $45.09 a year. If the
soldiers bad to go around and buy their
own clothing at ordinary rates they would
not bare a new coat moro than onco every
other year, and they would havo to sleep
In their underclothes to keep warm.
So tho United States has gono Into tho
business of supplying their ordinary
things to soldiers at tho bottom price at
which tho contracts for them con be
mado Tliero Is no rent, nor salesmen's
salaries, nor Insurance, nor profit to bo
paid by tho government. Aa a result tho
prices at which clothing is sold to the
soldiers aro bo low that many working
men who aro paid four times as much
wages as tho soldiers aro not clad as well
The bluo coats cost $3.!)3. They are mado
of cood material, well cut, and aro better,
fitting than tho uniform of tho avcrago
policeman, for winch ho pays soveral
times what tho soldier pays Ills caps
cost forty -iilno cents ills stockings cost
nlno cents a nalr. and thovaro better thnn
tho Bowery Btoros soil for a quarter, while
tho forty nlno cent caps aro as good as.
any man could want For his blue
trousers tho soldier pays $2 Thoy aro
so cheap that ho can buy half a dozen
pairs with his month's pay, which hi moro
than many young men who look down on
soldiers can do
Tho two bits of extravaganco aro tho
flnnnol shirts and tho blankets. Tho shirts
cost thirty-eight cents moro than tho
trousers, but thoy aro as good shirts as
can bo bought at any price, and thoy do
not Bhrlnk Into a woolly ball when thoy
aro washed Tho blankets aro sold for
$1.28. It Is cosy enough to go to almost
any dry poods shop and buy cheapor
blankots than the soldiers havo, but theso
blankotB aro wool and weigh six pounds.
Ono pair of them Is enough In cold
weathor, and they nro warmer than
soveral pairs of choap blankets. Tho
United States consldor tho health of their
soldiers, nnd though thoy economize on
tho cups and trousors, thoy supply tho
best uoolcn shirts and blankots.
Tliero aro various kinds of shoes that
sell from $1.70 to $3.01. Then there aro
heavy, stockings that soil for moro than
tho nlno conts that summer stockings
bring Tliero aro underclothes for solo
that aro of such a pood quality that tho
otDcora oftou wear them In proferenco to
tho underclothing that thoy can buy hi
tho usual way
Tho United States go further, and sup
ply all tho uoccssitlos of tho soldiers at
cost prices, and their cost rates aro fro
quontly lower than thoso a't which a pri
vato storekeeper could buy, as tho United
States buy In largo quantities and aro
suro pay It also tends to Increase a man
ufacturer's outsldo tnulo If ho gets largo
garment contracts, ami a big manufact
urer with a largo stock on hand can
atlord to sell to the United States at cost.
If ho sold at the same rato to prlvato
sellers thoy might cut retail rates, whllo
tho United States sell to nobody but
