At Elwood, Ind., next week the
most extensive tin plate plant in the
country will be started. The own

tin plate per week, and they expect
to employ 500 tin plate makers.
Ox Sunday last 2,239 immigrants

Last Saturday 300 men began

believe that all the tin plate used in
this country is made in Wales
should address letters of inquiry to
Senator Gorman. The Maryland
senator is a democrat and a tariff
reformer, but he has always been
loyal to the business interests of
his own state and city. He could
give the tin plate liars some
pointers about the danger to demo
crats of bringing tin plate into the
campaign again this year.

THE PURE FOOD BILL.
There has lately been a strenuous
assault made upon the Paddock
pure food bill, which has passed
the senate, has been reported favor
ably in the house, and to which
consideration will undoubtedly be
gfren -soon. The bill, says the
Sioux City Journal, as its name im
plies, is a measure which was intro
duced by Senator Paddock of
Nebraska. Practically the same
measure was introduced by him in
the last congress and passed the
senate. But becaust of the acri
mony and filibustering occasioned
by the Conger lard bill it did not
come up for consideration iu the
It has been violently denounced
especially by some democratic pa
pers, headed by the New York
World. It has been characterized
as absurd, as subversive of the right
of the state and as dangerously
paternal, and these charges have
been garnished with abusive epi
thets. There has been increasing com
plaint in this country that the gov
ernment was too neglectful of the
adulteration of food and generally
in care for the public health, that
all kinds of deleterious adultera
tions were sold in vast quantitie
to the people, and that a system of
public inspection was necessary.
Now the Paddock food bill is d
signed to be a response to this very
complaint. The intention of its
provisions is to attempt to remedy
swindling in foods, beverages and
medicines. The bill provides for a
system of inspection of these arti
cles entering into interstate com
merce. It organizes, under' the
jurisdiction of the department of
agriculture, a section called the
food section of the chemical divi
sion. Chemical experts and in
spectors are to be employed. Arti
cles which come within the pro
visions of the bill, and which are
transported from state to state, are
to be submitted, upon demand of
the proper authorities, to analysis.
Penalties are prescribed in case a
manufacturer declines to furnish
samples, and also in case adultera
tions are discovered. Lincoln Call.

SMOKELESS P0W3ER IN WAR.
It Gives Many Advantages to the Side
Making; tbe Attack.
TLe introduction of smokeless powder
has had considerable to do with a change
of tactics on tbe field . battle. In the
absence of the tunoke screen ou ljoth
sides, the company oflicers not only rind
it easier to work together, but caii con
trol their men and judge the effect of
their fire on the enemy to a far greater
degree tlian was formerly possible. From
their point .of view this increased jKnvor
of control more than comiK'nsa-es the
attack for the increased facility, of con
cealment smokeless iowder confers 011
the defense. It is true that the. latter
also profits by the same increased power
of control, but they argue that from tbe
nature of things the defense, striving
only to prevent . being beaten, whereas
tbe attack fights with the determination
to win, tbe latter is in a position to make
far better use of this new powder than
tbe former. Put in another fori, it
comes to this: The heavier and more ac
curate the fire whistling over a trench,
the harder it is to make men raise their
heads over it to take aim. Smokeless
powder makes it easier for the attack to
deliver such a fire; hence the difficulties
of the defense will be increased.
Further, in the absence of smoke,
men stationary on the defense cannot
escape tbe depressing influence of the
dead and wounded lying around them,
but the attack leaves all these evidences
of the fight behind it. So here agaia
tbe advantage is on its side.
With reference to the question of the
use of smokeless powders by the artil
lery, tbe general idea seems to be that
it was all a gain to the side which
thought more of killing its enemy than
of avoiding being killed itself. It enor
mously facilitates the maintenance of
fire discipline within the battery, permits
of continuous fire even at the most rapid
rate, for no smoke interferes with the
laying of the guns, and above all things
cheers the hearts of the men by enabling
them to see tbe results of their fire.
As a means of concealment it is of no
use at all, for even at extreme ranges of
5,000 yards and upward the flash of dis
charge is always distinctly visible, and
at fighting ranges the flash enables one
to note exactly the position of the ene
my's gams. This was not always possi
ble with the old powders, for the smoke
obscured the object and prevented one's
picking up an exact point to aim at.
Tbe artillery will be far from regret
ting tbe loss of the two clouds which
hung, the one in front of their own and
the other in front of tbe enemy's guns.
Smoke is a cover added to that furnish
ed by the ground, and 110 one has ever
been anxious for his opponent to have
covers which he himself could not turn
to advantage. If both are deprived of
this cover victory will belong to him
who, all else being equal, can most
skillfully supply the deficiency.
Maneuvers will hereafter probably
lake place over larger areas before ac
tual fighting begins, and something of
an Indian's craft and natural keenness
will be needed on the part of staff offi
cers. Smoke has been so good a cover
on many occasions that its absence will
impose new conditions, and natural
cover will have to be much more ex
tensively utilized. With the vanishing
poetry of the smoke battle the prose of a
new era will begin, in which combat
will be more like a game of chess in
view of the pieces as a whole, and new
dispositions of old qualities and virtues
will be wanted. Iron Age.
