work of the Mckinley tariff.
Woonsocket, R. I., is a jjood place
in which to stud' the practical oper
ation of the McKinfey tariff act.
Anion"; the new establishments
which have been brought into exis
tence by that act are the River Spin
ning company's works for nianu
factut ing fine woolen and worsted
yarns. When the act was passed a
Belgian linn having a plant worth
Jf'i.lX 50,01 X) was exporting fine grades
of yam to the United States on a
lare scale. It determined to put up
a plant in Rhode Island with the as
sistance of English and American
capital. Breaking ground in Woon
socket last Jul', it had in operation
by January four buildings and an
extensive plant. Its first invest
ment was $220,0; X), and within three
months it has found itself able to
manufacture the finest lines of
goods most successfully. The cap
ital is to be increased to $1,000,000,
and the works are to be speedily en
larged so as to includesixleen build
ings and to employ 400 operators.
As the qualities of the yarns is su
perior in fineness, the most skilled
labor is requited, so that wage earn
ers in the new factories will have
the best class of mechanical labor,
and will receive the highest wages
for it. The success of the venture
is so well marked that it is not im
probable that the Belgian plant will
be abandoned or largely transferred
to Woonsocket, and a great industry
introduced on a large scale. The
THE NEW SHIP.
The launch of the Raleigh at Nor
folk on Tliursdiy has an interest
not only because another fine war
ship is now added to those we have
afloat, but from the circumstances
of her construction. She is the first
unarmored modern steel war vessel
ever put into the water at the gov
ernment 3rards, and is likel' enough
to pe the first completed. The
Maine preceded her at the Brooklyn
yard, but is an armored vessel, the
completion of which is likely to be
delayed beyond that of the Raleigh.
The latter and the Cincinnati were
begun by Secretary Tracy's orders
in the navy j-ards, because the bids
of the contractors were not within
the limit fixed by congress. The
problem was one which the secre
taryhad to face soon after assuming
office, and it was not an agreeable
one. However, he was not long in
determining to take advantage of
the proviso in the act of congress
which enabled him to build these
ships in the government yards, and
no doubt the general effect was
good, while so much was added to
the resources put under contribu
tion to hurry forward the new navy.
With the high speed which her
1,000-horse power will give her, a
good radius of action, and a fine
battery of rapid-fire guns, the
Raleigh will be a valuable addition
to our navy. New York Times.
HOW PROTECTION HAS WORKED
IN THE CASE OFCAUCO.
Before we made any cotton prints
in this country they were bought in
Europe, and we paid 38 cents a yard
for them. We placed a protective
duty upon them. We immediately
began to establish the manufacture
here, and the price has kept on go
ing down, until to-day what do we
seer The duty on cotton prints is
4 cents a yard. They are worth
o cents, common standard prints,
in Great Britain. Now, if the tariff
is a tax, all the domestic prints in
America should be sold for 9
cents a yard. Are the-? Two years
ago I sent to a friend in Manchester,
England, and asked him to buy me
a piece of English cotton print. He
paid 5 cents a yard for it and sent
it to me.
I asked my wife to go to a store
here in Washington not distin-
guished for its cheap prices, per
haps, and get me an American print
of equal.quality and inform me what
he had to pay for it. She bought a
piece that she said was better and
she paid 5 cents a yard for it, pre
cisely the English price. Thirty
cents a yard when we first applied
protection, five cents to-day, and
every yard made in this country.
We never could have established
the manufacture of those articles if
we had not adopted protection. The
price would never have fallen as low
as it has if it had not been for pro
tection. Congressman Dingley of
A to' KIN LEY DEMOCRAT.
About a week ago Governor Mc
Kinley of Ohio received by express
a big pocket knife, the first made by
the Catvaraugus Cutlery company,
whofre factary at Little Falls, N. Y.,
was opened as a result of the in
creased protection to the cutlery in
dustry afforded by the McKinley
law. With the knife came the fol
I voted the democratic ticket for
nearly thirty years, but a drive
through New England in the year
1800, past idle cutlery factories in
Brie geport, Naugatuck, Union City
and Torrington, together with the
nearly paralyzed industries of Lake
ville, Northtield, Thomaston and
Shelburne Falls, convinced me of
the error of my ways.
I found old friends, who were
good mechanics in our line, driven
by the cheap Dutch knives, which
were on sale in every city and ham
let through which 1 passed, out of
profitable employment, and seeking
work as common laborers, ditch
diggers and coal heavers. Grass
grew around many of the doors of
Passing through the towns, I
heard Bill McKinley and the Mc
Kinley bill talked of on every side.
I was first convicted, then converted,
and, like Saul of Tarsus, the scales
fell from my ej'es and I saw the
parties contending over American
industries in their true lignt.
Thanks to your efforts, the Mc
Kinley law was enacted, and hard
times in our line of industry are
past. Trade is good, wages are
good, our little town has nearly
doubled its population in two
years, and we believe it will double
again in two years more.
Hoping in the near future to ad
dress you at the Executive Mansion,
Washington. D. C. instead of
Columbus, Ohio, we remain, yours

f eelings of a Monkey.
A native of India was sitting in Lis
garden when a loud chattering an
nounced the arrival of a large party of
monkeys, which forthwith proceeded to
make a meal off his fruits. Fearing the
loss of his entire crop, he fetched his
fowling piece, and, to frighten them
away, fired it off, as he thought, over
the heads of the chattering crew. They
all fled away, hut, he noticed, left behind
upon a bough, what looked like one
fallen asleep, with its head resting upon
As it did not move, he sent a servant
up the tree, who found that it was dead,
having been shot through the heart.
He had it fetched down and buried be
neath the tree, and on the morrow he
saw sitting upon the little mound the
mate of the dead monkey. It remained
there for several days bewailing its loss.

I feel it my duty to say a few
words in regard to Ely's Cream
Balm, and I do so entirely without
solicitation. I have used it more
or less half a year, and have found
it to be most admirable. I have
suffered from catarrh of the worst
kind ever since I was a little boy
and I never hoped for cure, but
Cream Balm seems to do even that.
Many of my acquaintances have
used it witu excellnnt results.
