AN INTERESTING MACHINE.
A" continuous tin plate machine
has been put into operation in Phil
adelphia by the American Tin Plate
Machine Co., Twenty-first street and
Washington avenue. The black
sheets are taken from the pickling
tank and fed, oik- a fter the other into
the machine. As the sheets pass
along they are scoured with Hand,
and brushed clean by revolving
rolls, washed willuwaler and dried
with steam heat. The ends of the
'sheet. are then f.-ntened together to
form a coMtii'u.m-t sheet, ami this is
passed throtig'i a pot of Dux and
through the tin bath, which is kept
covered with palm oil.
The machine is, at present, work
ing on terne plates. It is stated that
it can turn out III) boxes per day of
It is intended, however, to market
the plates in continuous rolls, which
will save the expense of boxing and
will be of special advantage for roof
ing purposes. Samuel Y. Muckmau
is the inventor of the machine.

The Nebraska Farmer, discussing
the manufacture of Nebraska hemp
twine, says editorially:
"In the catalogue of industries
more or less remotely connected
with the agricultural prosperity of
the western country there is none
that comes more closely home to
the farmer than that of the manu
facture of binding Jwine. He has
been so long at the mercy of coiubi
nations and trusts that have con
trolled the manufacture of tlii
product that is in general use on
every grain f irm in the northwest,
that he sh,,uld certainly hail with
delight a move toward the manu
facture of this twine out of hemp
grown on his own lands, and laid
down at his own door, all through
the instrumentality of home labor
bestowed on the product from the
plautingof the seed to the finishing
touch in rolling the twine into
I). ills of convenient size for use by
the harvesting machine. There is
a feeling of indi pendent pride that
takes hold of a man at the
thought. Hut it is not merely
us a matter of sentiment that
we wish now to direct attention to
the feasibility of growing hemp on
our own farms, and of manufactur
ing it into twine for use in harvest
ing our own crop. If as a business
venture it could not be made to pan
out to the profit of all concerned we
should be foolish to entertain the
i lea of its further development. Our
experience with glowing hemp in
this state and the manufacture of it
into binding twine has already been
sufficient to show the ready practic
ability of the thing. And it has
demonstrated the superior quality
ii ud peculiar adaptability of hemp
for this particular purpose. It gives
a finished product of a little better
strength than has that obtained
from the inanilla or other foreign
fibers, and one that gives a greater
length of string for a given weight.
And we learn also that this twine
createa less wear and tear of the
machinery than do others."
THE TARIFF IN THE bENATE.
It is understood that the senate
finance committee has virtually de
cided to postpone action on all the
tariff bill received from the bouse
The people will indorse this conclu
sion as one of practical sense and
sound regard for the business inter
ests of the country. There has been
enough of t.irilf agitation for the
present, and another long and ted
ious debate upon the subject would
merely serve to promote commercial
disturbance and uncertainty and to
discourage enterprises iu which the
laborers of the country are vitally
concerned. The bills passed by the
house for the reduction of duties
are designed merely to make party
capital in the coming campaign
and do not, therefore, deserve Hcri
ous consideration. If they were cal
culated to benefit any branch of
trade or industry, it would be differ
ent, and the senate would be bound
to give them prompt and careful at
tention; but in view of the fact that
they have no such purpose or ten
dency they may very properly be
pigeon-holed until after theelection.
There is not one of them that stands
any chance of passing the senate,
and so it would be a waste of time
to discuss them, even if the circuui-
stances were favorable. The objec
tions, to them are such that no re
publican can vote for them, and the
easiest way to dispose of them is to
ignore them, and give preference to
measurcH of manifest usefulness.
I he republican tariff policy is
well defined and well understood,
ind there is no necessity for further
elaboration of it in congressional
debates or amendatory legislation.
It is being daily enforced, and its
effects are readily perceptible. The
people lire satisfied with it, and do
not desire any changes iu it as mat
ters now stand. It has increased
our foreign commerce, to a point
never before reached iu the history
of the country, and stimulated all
kinds of domestic industry iu a
pronounced degree. Some of its
details are imperfect, but they can
be corrected at some future time
and under better conditions. Its
general advantages nre ho irreat
that its technical defects are hardly
worth considering, in fact. The
McKinlej law represents the repub
lican philosophy of protection sup
pleinented by reciprocity, and
the party is ready to make the fight
this year on that basis. It will be
nece.-saiy for the democrats to dis-
cusssaid measrre not according to
tludr predictions of lis results, but
iccording to results actually
ichieved and open to inspection.
The testimony of official facts and
figures is accessible, and it can not
be refuted with conjectures and
speculations. It will not be possible
to frighten the voters with prophe
cies ol higher prices when exjieri-
nce has shown them that the ten
dency is constantly in the direction
of lower prices for all articles of
oniuion use and necessity. The
iverage citizen can see for himself
that general prosperity prevails
that labor has steady employment
it good wages, and that no class or
interest is being harmed iu the least
by the tariff; and that is why the re
publicans are going to elect the
next president. Globe Democrat.
A RECIPROCIT Y STRAW.
The progress reciprocity is
making among oi.r southern neigh-
ors seems to be steady and sub
stantial. A letter bitelv received
from a merchant in Lima, Peru, by
the P.ureau of American Republics
gives a suggestion of this. It says:
A few das ntro I received a re.
piest from Are.piipa, the second
i.nc m commercial importance

acturing establishments or houses

Hrother Sherman, you are wel

law makes. As far as the law is
concerned, it needs no defense; it
speaks for itself. It is doing more
for the farmer and the laboring
man than all of your free trade doc

fully impressed with the idea that
Hoies would make nn exceptionally
strong democratic candidate be
cause he was a republican up to a
few years ago. Hoies' strength is
alleged to lie in the fact that he has

however, a sorehead or reneeade
still fresher from the republican
camp could be found. Bulletin.

WACES AND PRICES.
Free traders are fond of sayinir:
"What rot it is for a protectionist to
tell you that wages can go up and
prices of products go down at the
same time." Yet so eminent a free
trader as Mr. Edward Atk inson
figures it out from census statistics
that in twenty years, while the
labor cost of a barrel of flour was
falling from "Scents

Till- question raised by the demo
cratic house is not whether men
who served in the Indian wars and
afterwards in the Confederate army
shall be barrea by the latter service
from any pension for the former.
the democratic house insisted on
pensioning the survivors of the
southern Indian wars while leaving
out those iu the northwest. It may
be. of course, that the demands of
economy press hard on the demo
crats, and they do not feel able to
pension northern as well as south
ern Indian fighters, but it looks
mightily as though they had ar
ranged their bill to pension such
