CHEAPER TIN CANS.
Bluffton, Mo., June 18, 1892.
Editor American Economist: A
word about the price of tin.
We are producers of comb and
extracted honey, and put up all of
our extracted honey for shipment
in tin cans mostly in five-gallon
square cans, two cans in a case or
box and have been purchasing
these cases at St. Louis, Mo., for
some three or four years.
Two years ago they cost us sixty
cents per case of two five-gallon
cans. Last summer we bought a
better quality of another firm for
fifty-eight cents, and now they
quote them to us at fifty-six cents
Does this look as if the McKinley
act -had raised the price of tin to
the consumer? Respectfully,
TARIFF A TAX.
Tariff is a tax in the sense that the
fence that the farmer builds around
his garden or his corn field is a tax
paid by the farmer. It is a tax that
consists of the cost of the construc
tion and maintenance of the fence
And, yet, the fence must be con
structed and maintained, or the
trespassing animals of the neigbor
hood would destroy the entire pro
ceeds of the labor and the fruits of
the land, of the farmer. The tariff
is also a tax, in that the cost of its
construction and maintenance may
be said to be paid by the people;
but the loss due to a submission to
the commercial trespass that is
thus repelled would be greater than
the loss due to the maintenance of

A FEW days ago the democratic

papers will be filled with joy by the
announcement of the failure of the

California and the early closing
down of the works. This same
trick has been resorted to before,
but then it was about, the
mines in the Black Hills, but
they have just gone on mining
more tin than before. It is only a
scheme to buy up the stock and
mine more tin than before.
That fence around ' Carnegie's
steel plant was built three years ago

The slaughter house promises to
be a bloody one and the grave an

DO FARMERS WANT DIRECT TAX
In discussing the tariff it should
be remembered that we have to
consider only duties upon imports.
We levy no duty on exports. What
ever our people produce to sell
abroad goes out to our foreign cus
tomers free of any export tax. But
why should we levy import duties?
Well, it cost during the last fiscal
year $365,C 3O.C0O to carry on our gov
ernment. We raised $145,000,000 by
our internal revenue taxes upon al
coholic liquors and tobacco, $4,000,-
000 by the sale of public lands and
$23,000,000 from miscellaneous
sources. These sums left $193,000,.
000 to be raised in some other way.
How should this be done? By
direct taxation on property? Have
our farmers, who are more heavily
taxed than any other class of the
community, considered what would
be the burden upon them? What
would be the condition of that
great industry which produces the
prime necessities of . life, and is
more than any other the source of
our comfort and wealth, if obliged
to pay in addition to its present
large share in sustaining state,
county, and municipal government,
its portion of $193,000,000 for na
tional expenses? What, then, would
be the value of farm lands, and
They wash their clothes
when would the farm mortgages,
so much talked about and lied
about by our political opponents,
be paid? Congressman Milliken.

- Preliminary to the Baptism.
When Bishop Goe, of Melbourne, was
a curate a famous pugilist in the parish,
who went by the name of Jim the Slog

church door, called at the parsonage
asking him to baptize the baby. Ac
cordingly the bishop repaired to Jim's
house, but was surprised on being ad
mitted to see Jim lock the door and
pocket the key. "Be you the parson
come to sprinkle my kid?" he asked. On
the bishop assenting, he continued, "Yer
