WHY WE NEED PROTECTION.
Mr. Champion is an active mem
ber of that league of English social
ists that demands an eight-hour
day, without reduction of the pres
ent rate of wages, for all laborers in
the United Kingdom, and he also
advocates a return to the protective
system for the benefit of such
British manufacturers as may find
it diflicult to compete with French
or German makers who work their
hands more than eight hours and
pajr as low, or lower, wages than
are paid in Great Britain. The pro
position of Nr. Champion amounts
to a confession that protection has
a tendency to increase the pay of
This is gratifying to American
protectionists as coming from Eng
land, where the plea for protection
as a benefit to labor long has been
derided as unsound, though it never
has been refuted by figures or by
logic. But Mr. Champion's proposi
tion has had the effect of forcing a
celebrated American advocate into
a like confession. The New York
Evening Post, noticing Mr. Cham
pion's project, and, of course, op
posing it, says:
"In short, the cry for an eight
hours' day on the part of the work
men is not due to a desire for more
leisure, but to force up the price of
labor b3 restricting its t-upply. j
What the movement really means
is, therefore, a higher cost of pro
duction for the same amount of pro
duct, due to a larger expenditure
for wages. As this might cause
some establishments now pressed
hard by foreign competition to
close, thus throwing workmen out
of employment, Mr. Champion very
consistently suggests a return to
the protective system of tariffs."
Two things are worthy of note in
this excerpt. First, our contempo
rary's dread of any measure that
may tend toward "a higher cost of
production," which means better
wages, and second, its confession
that protection does tend that way-
But, bej'ond this, note the utter
subjection to British interests that
our contemporary displays. If "a
higher cost of production" should
become the rule in Great Britain
there would be less need of a pro
tective tariff in America, for our
tariff is designed to protect our
workmen against the ill-paid labor
of Europe. But not even to gain a
point against the American protec
tive system can our New York con
temporary complacently view a
prospect of increased wages for the
ill-paid British workman. It is one
of the cardinal doctrines of free
trade that whatever tends to "a
higher cost of production" is ev.',
whether it be tariff, or reduced
hours of labor, or better wages. To
produce something at the lowest
cost, to regard all labor as mere
mechanical force, is the object and
sequence of all free trade philoso
phy, and that is why Thomas Car
lyle well named it '"the dismal
But we are indebted to the New
York Evening Post for its candid
admission that protection is a ne
cessity to countries in which, by
reason of shorter hours of labor pnd
better wages, "a higher cost ot pro
duction obtains." Inter Ocean.

A Gold lVlrh Found Inside Pickerel
That Had lli-tn Swallowed.
The scene of the following incident
was about forty miles from Glovers
ville, on a beautiful little lake just
across the taltlo land at Piseco lake in
Hamilton county. The lake is iiot larpe,
in no place being more than a inilo wide,
whilo it measures from two to three
miles long. The day was all that a
fisherman couM desire, and every condi
tion was right for good fishing. A party
of three were in the boat, namely, L. E.
Everest: his friend, Professor Spencer,
from Brooklyn, and the writer. They
had driven up from Garoga and were
more than delighted with their luck.
They had taken nearly fifty pickerel in '
less than half a day, and the size was
good, weighing from 2V to 6 pounds.
The last turn around the "lucky point"
was being made before we started for
home. Everest, who was trolling one
of the lines, said:
"I've got another; he's a good big one
from the way he pulls."
Everest let him play at one time near
ly 200 feet of line before the fish could
be turned. When he had been brought
into 6ight he was not so large as some
we had already in the boat, but there
was an unusual motion all about him.
Soon the line was drawn so tightly it
was necessary to let him play again.
When brought back It was discovered
that a larger pickerel had attempted to
swallow the one on the hook, which was
now quite exhausted.
The big fellow still followed, shark
like, for the dead body of his victim,
which, however, we were not disposed
to give up. Just as Everest was about
to swing the fish, on his hook into the
boat the professor took up the oar, hop
ing to strike and thus capture the large
one. The movement of the oar attracted
the attention of the fish, and in a twin
kle he made a pass at it. The blade was
about eeven inches wide, but his jaws
grated across the upper and lower edge,
sawing a groove in either side with his
The professor, by carrying the oar for
ward with the movement of the fish, at
the same time raising it from the water,
landed the huge fellow into the boat.
He weighed 13 pounds. The fish on
the hook only weighed three pounds, but
showed signs of battle, being bitten in
several places. Upon opening him we
found, as is often the case, a fish of
smaller size in his stomach. This one
showed signs of life, and was opened.
We then discovered a pretty little gold
chatelaine watch, and were surprised
that the time agreed with our watches
and that it was running.
More than pleased with our fishing ex
pedition, we returned to the Adirondack
hotel, and informed Landlord George
A. McCoy of our luck, at the same time
showing the watch. In less than two min
utes all the guests about the house were
in the office, and among the number a
pretty young lady from Albany, who
said the watch was a token of friendship
which she had prized very highly. When
on the Like in the early part of the day
it had fallen into the water, and she sup
posed was lost. It is needless to say phe
was overjoyed at its recovery. Albany
Only Blan Ever Killed by a Meteor.
To the writer's certain knowledge
there is but one case on record where a
human being has been killed by an aero
lite or fall of meteoric stone. The fa
tality mentioned occurred in Whetstone
township, Crawford county, O., in 1875.
and is recorded in the Bucyrus Journal
As David Misenthaler, the famous
stockman, of Whetstone township, was
driving his cows to the barn about day
light this morning he was struck by an
aerolite and instantly killed. It appears
as if the stone had come down from a
direction a little west of south, striking
the man just under or on the right
shoulder, passing obliquely through
him from the right shoulder to just
above the left hip, burying the greatei
portion of his body under itself in the
soft earth. The 6tone is about the size
of a wooden water bucket, and appears
to be composed of pyrites of iron. Phil
Millions of Fungi Spores.
All the energies of the fungus plant
seem to be directed to tne proaucnon ot
germs for propagating its kind. Their
number is often almost v incalculable.
You have doubtless observed that the
common puff ball when mature is filled
with a fine dust, and this consists en
tirely of spores corresponding to seeds,
which are eventually diffused in the air
by the bursting of the puff ball. In a sin
gle puff ball more than 10,000,000 of them
have been counted, and when these
minute bodies are once set afloat in the
atmosphere they are distributed abroad
over an indefinite space, being 6o small
that it is difficult to conceive of a place
from which they could be excluded.
Their astonishing f ertility and rapidity
of growth are among the most remark
able characteristics of this vegetable
tribe. Interview in Washington Star.
An Air Tight Prison.
While some men were squaring the
trunk of an oak they had just felled they
suddenly started back in astonishment
on seeing a hideous toad about the size
of a large pullet'6 egg incrusted in the
tree 4 inches in from the bark and 15
feet from the root. Though mangled
by the ax the creature still moved, but
it appeared old, thin and decrepit. A
careful examination revealed no en
