Whether a protective tariff n-ally
protects this country or not at the
expense of foreign powers, the fol
lowing article from an unbiased
unprejudiced standpoint ought to
set the dumbest of tree traders to
thinking, and cause a few of the
scales to fall from their eyes. The
interview is dated at Berlin and
rends as fol lows:
"Willi referer.ee to the propuM-d

place at the time mentioned.
"'We will have no humbug, no

"'Do you. then, believe that com

'Yes.' said Mr. Von Siemens, 'if

This conversation is significant
of the feeling of fear with which
American enterprise and the pres
ent American policyr are regarded
in Germany. With her commerce
threatened in Central and South
America, it is only natural that
Germany should show some bitter
ness of feeling. But on sober re
flection German merchants and
manufacturers will hardly fail to
realize that the best policy is to
keep on friendly terms with Amer
ica, lather than to provoke even
more restrictive measures.
Of the nearly 700 steam vessels
which were recorded upon the Navy
Register in lSv5. at the close of the
civil war, there now remain only t he
Ianscater, Pensacola. Hartford,
Richmond. Kearsage, Iroquois, Wa
bash. Minnesota, Franklin, Yantic.
Monocacy, Michigan, Palos, and
Pinta, besides the thirteen single
turreted monitors. This entire fleet
carries fewer guns than were carried
by three of the original ships of the
navy the Constitution, the Con
stellation, and the United States--in
the war 1812. Four of the ob
solete warships, oldtimers that were
famliar to the navy yards hospital
nurses, and which had been con
demned by the governornment, lost
their opportunity of ever again
having their wounds healed at
navy yard, and were sold to the
highest bidder for old junk a few
days ago, which was recorded inthe
Washington dispatches at the time.
And so one after another of the old
cripples are disappearing, and in a
few more years the new cruisers,
commerce destroyers, battle-ships,
ironclads, and torpedo boats will
have displaced them all.

THE LADI ES HOME JOURNAL.
If it is true that "not one Ameri
can in a hundred knows how to take
a vaction" the July number of The
Ladies Home Journal has a distinct
educational value, for it quite over
flows with new and good counsel
lor summerings: beside tne Units
for "The Mother in the Country,
to which many clever women have
contributed, there arc helpful words
from Mrs. Margaret Bottome and
Dr. Talmage; while in the bright
page for "The Woman in the City"
the lot of the stay-at-home is shown
to be not so dreadful, after all.
Other attractive features are Mrs.
Henry Ward Beeeher's "Birds in
the Home; the sketch and portrait
of Mrs. Joel Chandler Harris; A
Bride in the Diamond Fields, by W.
I1. Pond, a bit of Switzerland deli
cately pictured by Mary J. Holmes
and some very excellent fiction, in
which "Isabel's Father," by Belle C.
Greene, is given a prominent place;
"A Soul from Pudge's Corners" by-
Jessie F. O'Donnell, and Mrs. Whit
ney's "A Golden Gossip" are con
tinued stories of expectional
strength. One is conscious of the
July sunshine flooding the depart
ment pages and, in fact, the whole
number; better summer reading

Sherman declares, "the people want

of material does not matter -o long

maintain tiiai inlormily of value it
is neces-arv to limit the volunm of
different forms of currency, and to
be sure that die basis is adi:ate
and permanent. This is the latal
objection to the free coinage of sil
ver or to the superabundant in
crease of paper currency. The ad
vocates of these experiments do not

changed by pushing the ciicula

For the last few years, says the
Utica Observer, "we have been read

Our Republican contemporaries
have attempted to justify the tin
plate taxation largely on this feeble
possibility- or prediction." Protec

on grounds entirely independent of
American tin. Whether American
tin mines can produce a single
