seen them emerge from the coal

looked on m pity and ama.eiuevt at
women bearing the brur.t of the

of the German Fatherland.
I have watched with sorrow and
indignation, women hitched up in

Minlmnit iiml tH'iit, witli ropes
over their shoulders, I have seen
women trudging- along the banks
of the canals and dykes of pictu

along the turgid waters. And, as if
to cap the climax of cheapness and
degradation, 1 nave seen women,
dressed as men, mixing mortar'and
carrying bricks up the scaffolding
to the bricklayers, in the charming
cit3r of Stockholm, Sweden.

A CONVERT TO PROTECTION.
hen Major Mclinle3' says the
Boston Journal, lately delivered his
masterly address in Providence,
the chief democratic newspaper in
that city remarked that he would
do more harm than good by raising
the tariff issue in the state election.

the limits of his state.

When the McKinley bill was
passed these were the declarations
of Senator Carlisle voicing free
trade prophecy as to its effects:
1. It would increase taxation ami
swell the surplus revenues; 2. It
would decrease importations and
create greater obstructions than
ever in the way of foreign com
merce; 3. The extended free list
would prove of no value; 4. New
industries would not be created;
5. Reciprocity, being a humbug,
could not succeed. It is already
proved that all these prophecies
are false how false another j-ear
will show. Already the custom
house entries prove that the reve
nues are much smaller than they
were in the same months of 1890.
They also prove that importations
are much, greater, both in volume
and value; that the free list has at
tracted a vast How of new business,
which is business that does not
compete with American production,
and that the importation of those
foreign goods upon which the du
ties were raised has been checked
Already in the making of these
goods American manufacturers are
active, and the market, held for
their benelit, is being occupied rap-
The sincerity of this assertion can I idly, without a penny of increased
be estimated by the fact that twenty
four hours later, this same news
paper devoted a large portion of
its editorial space to a frantic en
deavor to show that the democratic
party is a friend to the tariff, and
that "the real question is not be
tween free trade and projection."
In the interim our Rhode Island
contemporary had evidently begun
to hear from the people. One of
expense to tne consumer. Anu re
ciprocity, denounce it as they may,
has opened two new and vast mar
kets to American production, un
der conditions that are giving on
farmers and merchants an unrivaled
opportunity, and are calling forth
the jealous protests of Furope.

Again, Colonel Kiser does not deny
the soft impeachment that he is

the colonel enters to the friendly
accusation that he is a politician is
as child-like as it is refreshing. He
denies being "any kind of a politi

will not say a final adieu with this
incoherent statement; it is entirely
too utterly alliance. Let us have

speech upon the tnritf question that
Rhode J.-iand has ever heard. The
presentation of the topic from the
standpoint of protection was com

it was all but perfect. Its force,
weight and argument are incontes

left no doubt in the writer's mind
1. Tariff is a tax and increases the
cost ot an article upon which it is
laid when that article is one that
the country can not be made to
produce for itself out of its own
raw material or from its own soil
Thus it is protective polic3' to admit
coffee, tea, indigo, rubber and the
things which this country can not
produce, or can not produce in
quantity nearly adequate to its d
mantis, free of duty. Free trade
policy taxes an tiiese tilings.
J.. iantr is not a tax, and does not
increase, but rather decreases price
when it is laid upon things we can
produce from our soil or by our
own industry, and in suiucien
quantity lor our own use. 1 litis tne

that protection did not stimulate
production bej-ond a certain point,
and this point was far below thede

the total sugar product of Louisi

The inference is either that the area

contrast it may be said that in I860
there was not a pound weight of
steel converted into rails in the
United States, but in 1889 the pro
duct was 1,704,864 tons of 2,000 pounds
each. So that tariff has stimulated
the production of rails. Also it
may be noted that the price of steel
rails was $158.50 per ton in 1868,
which was the first year of their
manufacture in the United States,
and only $29.25 during 1889. In
creased production had provoked
competition and lowered prices.
But it is worth noticing that up
to a certain point protection did
stimulate the production of sugar.
In 1857 the product was 01113- 81,373.-
000 pounds, and the price in Boston
was ll'i cents a pound for raw
sugar, 14 cents for loaf sugar. The
war ot injI-M, ot course, cut ott the
Louisiana production and increased
prices. But in 1SS3 the tariff was
changed with the effect of cheape-n-ing
sugar si ightly by lvducing re
finers' profits, though not with the
effect of greatly increasing the pre
