An article on "Texan Types and Con
trasts " by Lee C. Harby, with seventeen
illustrations by Frederic Remington, will
appear in the July number of Harper s
Magazine. Mrs. Ilarby's writings on
historical subjects have recently won
honorable recognition both in thas coun
try and abroad. Iter paper entitled the
"City of a Prince,'' published some two
years ago in the Magazine of American
History and dealing with facts hitherto
unknown, gained for her the election as
fellow of The American Historical Asso
ciation. Another of h-r historical arti
cles was translated into Spanish, and
published in certain South American
periodicals. Mrs. Harby is also well
known as a contributor to various New
York literary papers.

its original designs, but allows the
Crumps to substitute their own plans for

their own arrangements for engine space
Tlie division of tlie work furnishes em
ployment for two shipyards in place of
one, and is to be commended on genera
nrincinles. The new cruisers have not
been named, and there will be a lively
competition for the honor if tlie ambi
tion of American cities is to be consid

three eastern cities have been fayored in
the nomenclature of the department
The 5,500-ton cruiser may appropriately

may be violated with impunity through
the conyeuient device of making 6ales in
unbroken packages. A 6tatecannot pre
vent the introduction of such liquors;
and when introduced, it can not in any
way control the disposition of them.
There is but one practicable remedy
in the case, and that is for congress to
make state laws effective, or, in other
words, to provide. that a
privilege heretofore recognized as

tinue to be thus regarded. It is utterly
impossible for the federal government to
exercise common police powers all over
the country. There must be local author
ity to deal with local evils and dangers.
That is one of the fundamental principles
of our political -system, and it can not be
dispensed with. The idea of leayingthe
lumor traffic exempt from all kinds of
lws is peculiarly obnoxious to all good
citizens. Whatever differences of opin
ion there may be as to the proper method
of adjusting the liquor problem, no com
munity wants it placed entirely beyond
reach of legal interference. Popular sen
timent does not anywhere favor liquor
sellirlg like that which is now going on
by reason of the supreme court's decision.
The interests of society are seriously com
promised by such a condition of things,
and the people are entitled to relief and
pratection. It is idle to say that congress
has no power to act in an emergency of
so much importance. It has repeatedly
passed laws to assist the states in preserv
ing the peace and promoting the general
welfare; and no more than this is asked
in this instance. The supreme court has
in effect recommended such a plan of
meeting the difficulty. There is mani
fest need of prompt steps to arrest the
spread of a traffic that is rapidly assum
ing the aspect of a national scandal and
reproach. The senate has done its part
in good faith, and the house has no ex
cuse for delay wheie the fact of duty is
so pliin and so imperative.

THE ORIGINAL PACKAGE MUDDLE
St, Louis Globe Democrat.
The action of the courts in Iowa, Kan
sas, Pennsylvania and other states goes
to show that the "original package"
decieion is to be so construed as to
practically invalidate all state laws with
regard to the liquor traffic. That is to
say, the supreme court's view of the in
ter state commerce clause of the consti
tution opens a way for tke people of one
state to sell liquor in another state re
gardless not only of prohibitory legisla
tion, but also of statutes imposing license
fees or other forms of taxation. The
term "original package" is held to have
no specific limit so far as the question of
dimensions is concerned; the importer is
free to suit himself as to the form or size
of the package, and he has a right to 6ell
it in that form and size, no matter what
the state may say" to the contrary. This
is the construction put upon the decision
by several state judges within the last
ten days, as well as by Judge Caldwell
of the United States circuit court. There
is no room left for doubt that all local
laws for the suppression, restriction or
HIGHER TARIFF AND CHEAPER
The eternal fact is as cruel as the re
morseless figures toward the gentlemen
who amuse themselves by howling. "The
tariff is a tax." ''The amount of tariff
is added to tlie price of the goods."
Here comes the British manufacturer,
a London Journal of June 2, 1800. and
A great many iron works in Rusia
have commenced the manufacture of
plows since the tariff duties on machin
ery have been increased. These plows
being cheaper ,;than those previously im
ported) begin to compete with even
those of German make.
In the article from which this article is
quoted it was written concerning the
Russian trade fur the year 1S88:
"At Rostov on-Don, the chief empor
ium for agricultural machinery in this
part of Russia, about 6,000 plows, mostly
of German origin, 1,000 reapers, 500
mowers, 500 hay rakes. 200 horse gear
thrashers, and 55 steam thrashers, with
engines, were sold during the year. All
the steam thrashers were of English make.
Tlie reapers, mowers, and hay rakes were
supplied by the United States; but Eng
lish and American, especially American,
plows, can not compete with the German
as regards price, being much too ex
pensive." "But in one year the import duties
having been increased," the Russian iron
works are making cheaper plows than
could be had from Germany which, as
we have just seen, was the cheapest for
eign market in which Russia could buy
Now, we propound our old riddle to
the free trade press, how can it be said
that "tariff is a tax" "tariff duty is ad
ded to the price" when, '"the import du
ties haying been increased." The Rus
sian maker sells a Russian plow for less
money than the German plow was sold
for under lower duties?
rust." The first does not lat long, but
the second lasts over winter upon the
3. One of the rusts on wheat lives for
a time on the barberry, producing a yellowish-red
rust upon the leaves in early
spring. This has been made out to a
certainty, but it is puzzling to know
what takes place in this western country
where the barberry is grown to such a
4. It has been suggested that possibly
the yellowish red rust occurring on the
leaves of trees may have some connection
with one of the wheat rusts. It will be
well for farmers to watch very closely
and see whether wheat rust is more
abundent around or near ash trees. In
this case it is necessary that a careful note
be made as to the presence or absence of
rust on the ash leaves also.
5. It has been suggested that wheat
rust may be propogeed in the spring
from the last year's rust on the straw.
Let fanners notice whether there is more
or less wheat rust in fields which were in
wheat last year, also whether there i3
more or less rust near to old wheat stacks
or where wheat straw has been scattered.
It will be well, also, to note whether
there is more or less rust upon fields
which were burned over before plowing
for the present crop.
i. The influence of favorable weather
(dampness with a high temperature; is
well known. Such weather does not
make rust, it merely helps it to develop.
Just as in tlie case of weeds; the weather
does not make weeds, it merely aids the
seeds which are already in the ground to
grnv rapidly into weeds. When rust
appears in damp and hot weather, do
not lay it all to the weather, but look
about for the real cause. Note carefully
any rusts upon weeds, bushes or trees in
the near vicinity.
7. It is thougt that wheat rust is less
common in the newer parts of the state
where wheat has not been much grown
Is this true? Is it true that wheat rust
increases as the country becomes older (
8. Is wheat rust less severe upon new
ground, or upon ground which has bten
in corn or some other crop for a series of

I am making a study of wheat rust and
desire to make the following statements,
in order that farmers and others may be
induced to give me such aid aa lies with

1. Wheat rust is caused by two or
more kinds of minute fungi, which at
tack the leaves and stems, growing for a
time in the interior of the wheat and
finally breaking out in the well known

A FIRST FRUIT OF REPUBLI
The Philadelphia Inquirer notes that
the great firm of Camp Jiros. has increas
ed its capital to ::,500,000 by the admis
sion of new partners, and has purchased
eighty-three acres of river frontage for
an extension of its ship yards. This
moyement has been made partly as a re
sult of that amendment of the United
States law which allows ship building
firms to increase their capital to -ivi.OoO -000,

government orders for forty new war

The democratic press will continue to
lament the effects of "the robber tariff"
and the "dishonest subsidy," but a
policy which "doubles the commercial
value of the business transacted" in the
port of the second city of the republic is
not without merit. If the mere prospect
of the redemtion of the pledges made in
the Chicago platform thus quickens bus

do for an issue when our prosperity is

of paper with r..i interposed layer of water-proof bitumen or asphalt, the whole unitea
under prc.-sure, making a sanitary miidew-proof sheathing for the uidct and floor ol
houses, ?.hat will last as long as the building upon which it is applied.
E::crience has shown that the cheap papers commonly used for sheathing houses do
not protect a building for any length of time, but soon mildew and fall to pieces, making
the house drafty and damp; these defects can then only be remedied at great expense.
