that great industry in which they are en

until C vs shall reverse its action at tho
la.-t es'nin, and re-tore the rate of duty to
that which prevailed under the tariff of
lbT, by which for the first time in the
history of this country equitable relations
were established in this industry between
the duties on wool and those on woolen
good?. It can be conclusively shown that
the tariff act of that 3 ear gave to American
producers of both wool and woolen goods
steady markets, a sure expansion of pro
duction, and through this expanded pro
duction it gave consumers cheaper wools
and woolens than were ever before
known in America, and In ought the
priecs fr.r all goods of ordinary
wear. and of many for fine
and luxurious wear, lower or as low as
an. known in Europe or elsewhere The
reiioal of the tariff ol 1SG7 on wool and
woolen was not asked for, as has been al-leia-d.
by the conservative business senti
ment of the country, or by any considerable
number of the American people. It was
brought about wholly through the eflorts of
iiiiniters and others interested in securing
in the United fct.its a market for foreign
wools, aided by a few parties who desired
U make use of the foreign product as a
whip to suImIuc the American market and
menace the American producers, upon whom
they wT" necessarily compelled to rely for
nine-tenths of the wool required in this
busjiie-vs. These combined intiuences,

A nruments used in the defense of the prin

that the wool-growers have a perfect right
to ask Congress for a lestoration of
the policy of piotcclion. and con
eludes in "the following terms: '-Ve es

Bport of the Senate Committee A Tte
liew of the l'tspnent Telegraph S.vtem
Extraordinary 1'uwen of the Woktern
TVAsinjfQTOK, May 23. The report ol
the Senate" Committee on Post-ofiices and
Post-roads on. the subject of iostal tele
eraph has been completed by Senator Hill.
It gives a history of the increase of debts,
rentals and cipital stock of the Wcstcrr
Union Company and the value of its prop
rty, leased and otherwise, and says the cap
ital stock of 580.000,000 has arisen to nearly
the whole of it from stocks, dividends and
from purchases made of lines of other com
panies, which were laid for by issues of
stock. It is evident, the report continues,
the prices which the Western Union paid in
its slocks for competing lines were vastly in
excess of either cost or earnings. It was
claimed before the committee by the West
ern Union that it had fiom time to time ex
pended out of its current earnings consider
able money on construction account; that is
to say, in addition to its hues and equip
ments over and above their maintenance.
This may be true to some extent, but cannot
I be hue to an extent justifying the enormous
stock dividends which tlie company nas
made, nor was the appropriation of the cur
rent income to the construction account suf
ficient to prevent the payment of
munificent cash dividends to share
holders, who received in that way from
1SG7 to IS:!, both inclusive, S34.000.000
in addition to stock dividends of 520,807,190.
As the process paid by the Western Union
in iLs own stock do not furnish even an aj
proximate idea of the actual cost of the
lines which it has puichascd from other
companies, and as Representatives of tha
Western Union, which alone iosseses tlie
information, have given no definite or de
tailed account of tlie amounts of money it
has itself expended in the construction of
lines, the committee have endeavored to
ascertain what it would now cost to repro
duce lines equal in every respect to those
which the Western Union have acquired on
all ways. The committee believes it to be a
large estimate to assume that the number of
miles of wire actually used and necessary
to its business of transmitting telegrams is
50000. Theconnuittee believo also that
tlie average" co-t ot" tlie .wire, in
cluding poles construction and in
struments for telegraphing would not
exceed seventv dollars p-r mile, which
would make the total cost 24,500,000; The
exact excess of capitalization of the Western
Union lHjond the actual cost of its lines,
and beyond what it would now cost to re
produce similar lines cannot be determined.
That it is enoimons is entirely plain and
undisputed. In reference to inquiry whether
this excess of capitalization, arising from
cto.-k dividends and fiom putchasesof other
lines at inilatcd juices paid in stock, has
operated injuriously in the way of increas
inir lite chan-e of the Western Union for
the transmission of teli-.;rauis the com
mittee deem it sufficient to say their own
conclusions corresjond with the opinions of
the country that iLs effect, in that direction
cannot lie a matter of doubt, and that it has
b-en very great. The swollen capitalization
of the Western Union ha create! at 0110
and the same time a cover, an inducement,
and in some senses a necessity for excessive
charges lor tc!eirruin. ni loin: and o far
as the public has been made to bclietetho
nominal capital was a real one, it has ten
ded to induce acquiescence in excessive
chanres, while the ej,oswe of the actual
nature of the nominal capital does not di
minish the pleasure of the motives which
impel the mananer of the company to keep
up the charges which are essential to the
maintenance of tiie present dividends n'-on
the immense mass of its watered stock. For
the purpose-of relieving the country of the
harden of the charges for telegrams, which
are loo high. if makinc their charges more
equal as between diffeivnt localities anil
different classes of telegrams, and of guaid
ing against tiie mischief and dangers of
having the control of the telegraph business
of the country in th" hands of a pri
vate company which enjoys a practical mo
nopoly, tiie committee have rejMirtcd the ac
companying bill. Tlie report savs the con-,
stitutional right, of tlie Government to
establisira postal telegpjih ,is undoubted
and that there are"oliv:ous and sufficient
answers to the objection that such a line will
ojierate injuriously upon private telegraphs.
The rejMUl asserts that the passage of the
jiostal tch'graph bill will reduce the average
charge per telegram from thiity-nlne cents
to twenty-live cents immediately and to
twenty cents in live years, and secure uni
form charges irrespective of the amount of
! business in different places for telegrams to
newspapers- anil to commercial news asso
ciations, and continues as follows: Under
the present telegraphic system the pos
sibility of a species of censorship which is
one of tiie most alarming dangers which
menace the country arises in two dis
tinct ways, each of which requires a sep
arate consideration. The first is the tower
which telegraph companies themselves have
in manipulating news "for sinister pur
Hses,," and second is the same power pos
sessed bv the Associated Pi ess ami other
j similar associations, not themselves owning
teiegrapn lines, out mai;mg special com
pacts for the transmission of telegrams over
lines owned and managed by others. It will
appear that the power of the telegraph com
pany in this respect will be entirely taken
away by tlie pending bill, and that the jiower
of the Associated Press and similar assoeia
tiouf will be gteatly 1 educed. For the pur-
I po:-e the report says of giving fabulous for
tunes to its inside managers and their
iriends Hie Western Union need not send
untrue marked quotations. It has only
to give true quotations a single hour,
or less than that, in advance to
those whom it means to favor and
tlie work is effectually accomplished. No
such iKJwer should he allowed to exist in
this country. If no iKist abuses can bo
shown to have occuned, or even if .believed
there have been, in fact no abuses of it,
tlie temptation to abuse it is enormous, and
will sooner or later prove irresistible. Tho
hill will effectually take the jwwer away
from the Western Union or any other pri
vate telegraph company by the low rates
which it secures to everybody, and by still
lower rates whicii.it secuies h commercial
associations. Competition in furnishing
commercial and financial news to all poinU
and places is not to be expected under Uiia
bill, but it will be sufficient if it insures, as it
is sure to do, competition in furnishing
such news to more imjKirtant places whereby
the field for profitable Liiiiering with pub
lic intelligence will be so narrow that the
temptation will no longer constitute a sen

from the lDth of April, 1775, when the
tirst shot "was fired in the American
Revolutionary war at Lexinon. The
day has also been illustrated by the
death of several notable personages

Lord Cadureis" is perhaps tlie most
appreciative sketch ever conceived) in

Although there arc several species of

they will fasten on the roots of apple

as to injure the vitality of the tree anil
eventually cause its death. "Wood ashes
