The wor.-t form of tyranny is this

southern voters should continue to
send men to congress who devote
all 1 1 lei r energies to trying to pass
measures which would bury still
deeper ihe smith's marvelous re
sources of coal, iron and other min
erals. Most significant as showing
the trend of thought in the manu
facturing states ol the south was
the banquet held in Chattanooga,
Teiiu.. March The occasion was
the celebration of tin- making of
basic steel from low grade southern
pig iron. The feat u re of the enter
tainment was the tin cups, plates.
Ilower stands, champagne glasses
and other fancy articles made from
Chattanooga steel which was rolled
and tinned by the St. Louis stamp
ing company. The menu card had
a front cover made from a sheet of
tin, the back cover from a sheet of
steel, l'age leaves between these
had printed on them the menu and
toasts. Mr. McKinley was there and
made a speech. He also made a
second speech on protection at a
reception given to him and toothers
by the Young Men's Republican
(Tub. The press dispatches brought
the significant statements, comin
as they do from the solid south
that "he was greeted throughout

chose rather to sulk in his tent than

RECIPROCITY WHICH WE DO NOT
.Mr. . Mills seems to have a larger
capacity for doddering idiocy on
the subject of foreign trade than
my other man in the public eye.
In a speech on Friday he said: "If
reciprocity is wanted, why not ne
gotiate with Kngland. France ami
Germany?" Wh v. vou precious old
in n ny, what is t he good ol recipro
city with nations which wish to sell
us such things as we can manufac
ture or produce ourselv es? Is there
my sense in our buying iron pro
lucts from Kngland when we have
inexhaustible supplies of iron ore
md coal to convert the same into
pig iron m our own country, and
plenty of men to work the pigs up
into all sorts of shapes? What pro-
lit would result from letting our
own cotton ami woolen mills stand
idle in order that we might buy
cotton and woolen goods from Kng
land? Wotdd it be sensible for us
o close our silk factories in order
to take the products of French
looms or our hosiery mills to oblige
German manufacturers? No man
with a shade of business sense
would advocate anything of the
kind. It is only that economically
rotton part of the community which
shares the ideas of the old-time Cal
hounites and secessionists that still
believes the United States should
produce raw materials for Great
Britain and other foreign countries
to put into shape and sell back to us
at an immense profit. Xo patriotic
American ever advocates anything
f the kind, and the blush of shame
mantles his cheeks when he hears
men calling themselves Americans
urging that we should remain hew
ers of wood and drawers of water
for foreigners.- San Francisco
TltK Loudon Manufacturer of
February U'U says that a representa
tive of a gigantic manufacturing
concern of Drnzil has made a tour
of Ihe world searching for the very
best machinery of various kinds
that could be obtained anywhere.
It quotes him as follows:
"I found that American machinery
is superior to anything" made in
Kurope. I found the price of Kuro
pean machinery a little lower, but
the American machines are so much
more labor saving that I find them
more desirable for our use. and I
shall make my purchases in Ibis
country almost entirely."
