could buy, ami in spare time that
otherwise be unemployed, can he pos-ilAj-buy
cheaper shoes at any price? Why,
he wouhl be just ho much out of pocket "
if his neighbor should sell him a fine pair
of shoes for sixpence. -
Why should the country throw away
its money, buying things which its own
lUK-inplojetl labor could produce! The
w hole Natitw, like one man, lias so many
hours for work each year, with which it
mint pay for all its purchases. Part of
them are not einpbiyeel. Some men nro
unemployed all the year, some have work
part of thu year only, some are on strike
because their wages tlo not suit, some are
idle Ikc:'-uso people elo not earn enough
to buy all that certain factories could
produce, working fidl time. Altogether,
let it be supposed that the unemployed
labor is eepial to the full time of one
man in an hundred, say 000,000 men,
each 300 working elays. Then 180 mil
lion working days go to waste in a year.
If part can be put into the making of tin
plates, which c- st the Nation $17,000,000
last year, wouhl not the Nation save just
that sum, IcoS the trifle it would have to
pay for thu tim useel in ceiating? That
would occupy not a tenth of the wasteel
d tys' labor. But if tlie foreigners shoulel
oft' r us tin pi ites at a piurter of the
present price, which wonlel be the thcap
t, ili imported plates costing only $-1,-J5(),(l00.
or the elonp stic tin plates cost
ing days' labor now wasted? The Na
tion has te support somehow all theso
unemployed men, as it atanels; it gets
nothing for their keep, and it could get
tin plates. Which is the cheaper, te nso
I ibor now ielle, or to keep the iillo labor
alive and send $17,000,000 to Englanel
for tin plates (
Thm there are left more than 170 million
working .lays going to waste. Last year
we bought from abroad $10,000,000
worth of wool, because it was "cheap,"
and $14,000,000 worlL of woolen goods
for the same reason. That is why a gooel
man' of th men are not cmple.yed.
Which woulel be cheaper, to pay $60,-
000. 000 for "cheap" wool and woollens,
or to produce them with labor now wast
ed? "But it woulel cost too much to
grow wool here or make woollens." Just
'he other way; it costs to much to keep
in indleness a people who ought to ba
making wool anel woollens, but who are
b prived of work by large imports. Let
t be supposed that 00,000,000 days'
vvoi k, the yeai 's labor of 200,000 men
mil women, would produce what we im
port. Somehow, they now eat up anel
otherwise consume what costs $125 year
ly fe.r each person, or $25,000,000, and
-ve now pay $(50,000,000 for what they
lesn't produce, but gladly would. Tha.,
s not cheap wend, nor cheap clothing.
Il" Europe would senel us the goods, anel
Australia the wool, at a cost of $20,000,
M0 instead of $00,000,000, the entire
eost to the Nation would still be $20,-
)00,000 for things bought and $25,000,
000 for the keep of ielle workers. Made
here, the same things would cost tho
keep of the 200,000 workers now ielle-,
n ene.ugh besides to make them self-re-pecting
American citizens. That woulel
be cheaper wool than any Australia can
Th dearest goods the Nation car. pos
sibly buy are those for w hich it pays the
k"p of ielle men and women wdio would
gladly work. The fe.rugm-r who wants
;o senel gooels he-e to take the indepen
dent manhood from an American ought
to be re quirctl at lenst to contribute what
if costs to f -ed and clothe him. But
wh- n President Clevtland proposes to
increase the army of ielle men anel wome n
in eirder to get cheaper woe.l and woed-
1. u.-i from abroad, he does ne.t know the
meaning of tiie weird "cheap." New
Russia is the 1 i?t country in the worlel
e'on-erning which we slioulel expect to
hear that i has a good system fe.r the
administration of law anel justice. Henv
ever, according te Albert F. Ileanl's urti
ele in Harper's Mayizirm for May, the
jujieial system of tiie Czar's dominions
is excellent, anel, if honesty followed
out, would work to the happiness of the
Czar" i? subjects. But there's the rub.
Being an aut -crat of tli3 most absolute
kind, und judging himself anel his gov
ernment to be in ebinger, Alexander III.
has so modi lied the judicial "system of
his country by imperial decrees that it
might just about as well not exist at all.
Against the ukase the Nihilists have op
posed assassination; and so it goes, from
bad to wor. The end no one can tel),
but there is much to hope for in a coun
try where the masses of the people woulel
rather be beaten with stripes than pav a
small fine! It is especially interesting to
read this article in connection with Dr.
Lanselcll's "Russian Convicts in the Salt
Mines of Iletsk" in the same number.
The demanel for the admitting of the
south half of Dakota into the Union as a
