WAGES IN AMERICAN AND ENG
While all the democratic and free
trade papers are howling against
Mr. Carnegie and Mr. Frick lor their
reduction of 12 per cent, which may
be unjust and should be resented,
it would be well for them to see
what these men are getting and
compare it with what is paid in
The Iron Age of June 30, 1892,
gives the following figures as the
wage list of "a well equipped mill
in Western Pennsylvania, working
under the Amalgamated scale,
which is the scale determining the
rate of wages at Carnegie's works."
We place English rates for like
work in separate paragraphs:
The American wage list stands
thus for the year 1S91:
Rollers in 7 inch mill. 422
turn of H lion': each
wr 'ear Sj.KM.'.iS
k'olle's in 18 inch mill. ItW
Rollers in Kiiidc mill, 511
Rollers in liar mills, IITG
Thus it seems that the
price paid for eight hours' work to
any roller was $7.78, and the highest
for labor of equal duration was
We make bold to say that there is
hardly one editorial writer on the
regular staff of any one of the free
trade papers whose editors-in-chief
give orders for "slashing articles
on Frick and Carnegie's starvation
wages who is paia at me rate oi
$9,213 44 for 468 "turns" at his work.
The English pay of a roller in iron
mills is $2.50.
English pay $2.50 per day. Amer
ican "starvation wages" from $7.78
to $19.76 for eight hours' work.
In which country does the
modern Legree live in protection
America or in free trade England?
Let us now consider how "heaters"
are paid in American and in Eng
lish iron and steel mills. The
wages in the Pennsylvania mills
have been as follows for the trade
year just ended:
Healer in 7-inch mi'.l, 122
turns of hours eac't . .$i,!lH.l
Hea.er in lU-im li ni 'l, 4W
turns of S hours each.. . 4,021.22
Heater in guide mill. 511
turns of S hours each... 3,5H).1G
Heater in bar mi'l, 552
t.irus of h hours each... 3,220.00
Fnglish pay $1.60 for a day's
woik, American pay from $5.83 to
$9.88 for eight hours' work.
The lowest priced labor employed
in mills running on the Amalga
mated scale receives $1.50 per daj'.
Its counterpart in England is paid
These figures are submitted to the
consideration of all thoughtful
people, without reference to the pro
posed reduction of 12 per cent at the
Homestead works, though that pro
posed reduction affects only 325 of
those who have been earning from
$5.83 to $19.76 for eight hours' work,
and does not touch the wage list
that ranges from $1.50 to $4.50 a day.
The figures prove that under pro
tection wages in America have
reached an eminence that seems in
credible to the European workman.
The Ilomstead matter is to be de
termined upon evidence. If, despite
ot a fall of 12 per cent in selling
price, $27 being the rate when the
scale of 1SS9 was adopted and $23.75
the rate when the agreement be
tween Carnegie and his men expired,
there still is profit enough to afford
compensation to capital without re
duction of the income of labor, let
old rates prevail. But if reduction
be necessary, the 325 men affected by
it still will be in receipt of incomes
far in excess of those of most
preachers, doctors, lawyers, teach
ers, authors, clerks or farmeas.
CAPITALISTS HAVE SOME RIGHTS
It is argued that Carnegie's pro
fits have been too large. Can you
reduce them by repealing the tariff?
How? Take off the duty and the
price of steel goes down and with
that wages. To reach Carnegie you
will trample over the prostrate bod3
of labor. All that Carnegie is en
titled to in morals is a fair profit of
his investment, and by investment
we mean brains and capital both.
If it can be shown that he is getting
more than that now public senti
ment will sustain the strikers, and
the Carnegiea will have to yield to
it sooner or later. Labor has rights.
It has a right to wages j::st as high
as the condition of business will
warrant no 'more and no less. Rail
ing at millionaires amounts to noth
It is really too funny for anj'thing
to have Cleveland's letter to Gener

his nomination, lie on his desk un

the case. We are also told that it
was a pretty letter.

Mosquitoes That Never Lived.
Some of the good people of Stratford,
Conn., decided this year to drain about
forty acres of marsh land and had the
necessary ditches dug. Afterward some
of the ditches were partially filled up
and the marsh water stagnated therein.
On examination the water was found to
be a saturated solution of mosquito
larvae. The local scientists focused their
powerful intellects and microscopes
upon a specimen of the water and fig
ured it out that the prospective mos
quito population had been 20,000,000 to
As there were forty acres drained, the
appalling fact is apparent that 800,000,
000 promising members of the mosquito
race, who might have done good and
telling work upon the Connecticut coun
try boarders this year, were thus cut off
before their, youth had a chance to
flower or even to sprout, or, to come
down from metaphor to fact, to crack
the shell of the embryotic state. Among
other things, this little story teaches us
to keep away this summer from un
drained marshes. New York Tribune.
A Potato Vine Imitating the Lemon Trees.
J. W. C. Pogue brought in to Visalia
this morning a remarkable freak of na
ture in the shape of a potato vine upon
which was growing potatoes in all stages
of development, from the size of a mar
ble to one as large as the average Early
Rose. The vine was discovered in Mr.
Pogue's lemon grove. The seed planted
was of the Early Rose variety, and some
of the potatoes will be planted out to see
if they, will reproduce. When the vine
was pulled up a few small potatoes were
found at the root, but on the vine there
must have been a hundred. The only
explanation Mr. Pogue can offer is that
the potato must have thought it to be its
duty to prodnce lemons, as Is was sur
rounded by that fruit, and that lit
made an honest effort in that direction.
Where Flies Come From.
If by stealth a man should let in a lit
tle light and air that is a man's idea of
cooling a room, to open, it wider than
the Chicago exposition and let in all the
dust and heat and noise and flies and
glare the street can pour into it he is
discovered every time. She whose
genius had made every room in the
house a storage warehouse for night air
comes in and wonders "Where all these
flies came from?" He, with extravagant
gesticulation, doesn't know at least he
says he doesn't, and doesn't care, which
is true; what he wants to know is when
they are going back again? Robert J.
Burdette in Ladies' Home Journal.
The Latest Horror.
Scientists have built for advertisers,
by an arrangement of mirrors, reflecting
glasses and lights, a sort of gigantic
magic lantern, by which images can be
thrown upon the clouds, so that adver
tisements in letters 100 feet long will
be visible over a dozen counties. On
the bosom of an advancing cyclone hor
rified humanity of the future will be
able to read in gigantic letters "Use
Blank's Chest Protector," "Try Brag
em's Pills." Minneapolis Journal.

The cornerstone of the new building
of the Paris Young Men's Christian as

ceremony at 14 Rue de Trevise. The

have evidently been most successful,
and the undertaking is sure to have the
good wishes of the community at large.

Cholera infantum has lost its
terrors since the introduction of

a prominent merchant at Walters

NEVER STRIKES INDIANS.
In the course of his Xew Haven
Conn.) lecture Rev. Thomas Dana,
an educated Indian, made this sin
gular statement: "The Indians
never cook anything in the house.
They always cook outside, giving
as their only reason that if they
cook inside the steam will collect in
their clothing and draw the light
ning. Whether this is true or not I
do not know, but I know this no

lightning since the dawn of history,
and no Indian has been killed with
