formulated in an amendment to tariff

thorizes the president "without further

Here is a dispatch that tpeaks for
'PiTTBBCiWH, June 10. The Tin
Plate Record ed.torially claims that every
tinned plate importer in the country hss
been assessed $10,000, and the English
syndicate who controls the manufactories
and mines in Monmouthshire and Corn
wall has augmented this sum to nearly
one million dollars in order to defeat
the tin plate clause in the McKinley tar
If it proves to be true that this enorm
ous sum nas ieen raised to defeat a
clause in the tariff bill now before the
senate, it will not be the first time that
English manufacturers have resorted to'
these methods to influence American
legislation. For years they have kept a
sharp eye on this country, and whenever
they see the'r interests imperiled by any
proposed protective legislation they
hasten to advance the "sinews of war"
to ward off the danger.
The money spent in this way finds its
way into many channels. A great part
of it is used in subsidizing the press,
which is relied on to mould public
opinion in favor of a tariff policy that
will be acceptable to the British manu
facturers. The tin manufacturers are
not the only ones who resort to these
methods of influencing legislation ut
Washington. Not long since the linen
manufacturers of Belfast organized an
association whose avowed object is to do
all it can to preyent the raising on the
duty on linens. At the present moment
the agents of these Belfast linen manu
facturers are working iu the United
States like beayers. Evidence of their
work can be disco vered in the articles
thet are constantly appearing in the news
papers in regard to the proposed duty on
And so it is all along the line. Eyery
British interest that is threatened by our
tariff legislation is closely watching con
gress. The enormous sum that the tin
plate manufacturers are said to be will
ing to spend is but a small amount of
the money that has been raised in Eng
land for similar purposes. All of which
6hows that John Bull thoroughly realizes
how important it is for him to fiTht pro
tection with all the means at 5 com
mand, lie knows that there will be no
chance of his capturing the richest market
in the world if he is beaten in his fight
against protection. Hence his willing
ness to plunge his bands deep in his
pockets to pay the expenses of conduct
ing a war against the policy of protect

THE LIGHTEST WEIGHT PRACTICAL BIDDER EVE3 HADE.
The OriginrJ Package In Iowa.
An anti-package house meeting of cit
izens was held at the M. E. church, Sat
urday night, and again Monday night.
Mayor Gibbs presided at both meetings
and E. O. Gardner acted as secretary.
The feeling of those present is best ex
pressed by reproducing here the resolu

Wuere's, It is currently reported that
certain persons contemplate the opening
of a house in Villica tor the sale of in
toxicants in original packages, and
"Whereas, It is the sense of this meet
ing that such a house would be injurious
to public morals aud an outrage to pub
lie sentiment, be it
Resolved, That we hereby express our
disapproval of the opening of such house,
and pledge ourselves to resist it by all
lawful means. And be it further
Resolved, That it is the sense of this
meeting that the man who drinks intoxi
cants for other than medical purposes is
as reprehensible as the man who sells it
and that he should be held to be as re
sponsible at the bar of public opinino.

Resoleed, That we invite the co-oper

Many opinions as to the manner of op
posing the sale of liquors in the town were
given, but all agreed that the institution
just started was in opposition to the
wishes of a great majority of our people.
A large number of those present signed
their names to a paper agreeing to oppose,
in every lawful way, the progress of the
house. The following committee was
then elected to take in charge the work
of prosecuting the violations of the law:
F. F. Jones, C. K. Kennedy, 3Irs. Ellen

of paper with interposed layer of water-proof bitumen or aiphalt, the whole united

houses, 'Jiat will last as long as the building upon which it is applied.
