Tho frco traders nslc our attention
to tho fact that most of theso Indus
tries nro Independent of protection,
so that tho higher rates commanded
by American labor cannot bo traced
to tho tariff. If men were born with
somo conformation ot tho hands
which destined them for a specified
trade, there would bo force In thlB
argument. But as every man Is free
to chnoBo whether ho will enter upon
an employment directly affected by
tho tariff or 0110 that Is not, It Is to
bo presumed that employers In tho
latter have to compete for workmen
with somo reference to tho fact that
other channels of employment arc
open. The free traders among our
farmerH complain that since the fur
torlcB became so numerous they can
not get a barn painted at the rates
they used to enjoy. Yet barn paint
Ing Is not protected.
Wo aro also Invited to observe that
wages are higher In Great Britain
than In Franco or Germany, both
countries which have protective tar
iffs, while Great Britain lias none.
WITH ALL HIO FAULTS
This argument would have some forco
If protectionists argued that the mere
existence of a protective tariff would
suffice to rai60 wages, apart from its
effects In diversifying Industries.
England has relatively high wages be
cause she Is still enjoying the results
of five full centuries of protection to
home Industry, in the possession of
an abundance of manufactures. Ger
many and France aro still struggling
with tho harm inflicted on their In
dustries by experiments In free trade,
and their wnges will not reach even
tho tho English level until they at
tain that varied Industry which Is the
Qrst condition of general prosperity.
Even free traders admit that the
wages earned by German laborers aro
very much higher than beforo Bis
marck Allowed our example in estab
lishing a protective tariff.
We aro also asked to Infer from
this table that "higher wages mean
lower cost of production, Instead ot n
proportionally higher coBt, which Is
tho assumption on which the whole
wnges side of tho tariff argument is
built." Then the compositor, who
gets 44.C cents an hour In America, Is
cheaper to his employer than he who
gets 17.9 cents an hour In Great Brit
ain, or he who gets 9.6 cents an hour
In Belgium. Why, then, do English
publishers employ Belgian printers
to manufacture cheap editions of Ten
nyson and other English authors,
when tho Belgian compositor, at 9.C
cents nn hour, Ib dearer than the Eng
lish compositor at 17.9 cents? And
why do they not have their books
manufactured In America, In other
casoss than those In which our copy
right law compels them? Or Is free
trade economy altogether Independ
ent of tho multiplication table?
There aro somo other comparative
figures with regard to the condition
of labor, which would be still more
suggestive If we had them. Tho cen
sus of 1900 shows us that only G per
cent of tho married women of this
country aro engaged In gainful occu
pations, ang only 31 per cent of tho
sluglo women. What other country
has nny such record as that? Cer
tainly not Great Britain. Tho Eng
lish workman, as n rule, worki no
border or steadier than doea hJs tfr
and his grown-up daughters. They
have no such home life as Is possible
to tho family of tho American work
man under our usual conditions.
Again, tho number of men nt work
in Amorlca amounts to 22,489,425,

Nuts for Democratic Crackers.
Sifted to the bottom, these chnrgca
of Republican extravagance merely
show that national expenditures aro
steadily growing, nnd that they will

ocratic "keynoters" clamor vaguely
for "economy." But they are much
too cautious to specify the economies

enough to say that army expenditure
should be cut to "a point historically

Marveled at Time's Changes.
When Henry James, tho novelist,
returned to the United States, after
an absence of twenty years, ho was
overwhelmed by tho changes wrought
In New York during that time. As he

which affords something ot a view of
Manhattan ho stood silent several
moments, deaf to the question of his
friends, and gazed at tho outline of
his native city In true Rip Van Win
kle wonderment. At the same time

ot tho famous French diplomat, arriv

Joke on Edmund Rostand.
Edmund Rostand was the other day

to n friend In the country M. Rostand
was requested to accompany him to a
mnlre, In order to register the friend's
new-born infant. The adjunct of tho
malre, a conscientious little man,
booked the Infant and then turned to
''M. Rostand as tho first witness. "Your
name, sir?" "Edraond Rostand." "Your
vacation?" "Man of letters and mem

STRANGERS WERE NOT WANTED
Too Much Commercialism InChurchei
of New York.
Tho charge that strangers aro not
mado to feel at home In some of tho
big churches in New York Is well
founded, according to tho observation
made by a Pcnnsylvanlan who has
lived there for ten years. "A few
years ago I rented a pew In ono of
tho big churches In Fifth avenue and
kept It for n year. My family was not
numerically largo enough to fill tho
pew, nnd I notified the usher that I
could usually accommodato from two
to tin eo strangers. I learned Indirect
ly that the soxton, who had tho rent
ing of tho pews, objected to too much
liberty on my part. Ho said that II
every pewholder In tho .church made
tho same sort of offer he could not
come up to tho expectation of tho gov
erning board of tho church, which ex
pected hlhi to rent every pew. The
logic of this was that If strangers do-
.sired to nttend that particular church
very often they would bo expected to
pay for their sittings. To put It a lit
tle plainer, strangers wero not wel
come, although a sign In the vestlbulo
said they were." . T i'.;

EXPENSES OF WEALTHY WOMEN.
New York Leaders of Fashion Spend
Much Money on Dress.
Mrs. Safford Barstow, the New York
woman who spends her entire tlmo
simply designing on paper new crea
tions In the garb of American woman
hood, was asked If the statement made
in the dressmakers' convention that
some women spend as much as $25,-
000 on their clothes In a year was an
exaggeration. "That Is merely a fair
average," she Bald. "Far from being
distorted, the figure named is very
conservative. Mrs. John Jacob Astor,
1 think, is admitted to be the best
dressed woman in New York. I am
certain that she spends all of $60,000
a year on her dresses. Mrs. Cornelius
Vanderbilt Is a close second. Her
dressmaking bill certainly runs over
$40,000, while Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish
and Mrs. Joseph Wldener, for Instance,
are In a big class that easily part
tbelr husbands from upward of $36,000
each year for the benefit of the dress
makers, shoemakers, glovers, etc."
Single Men Best Soldiers.
It Is well known that Lord Kitchen
er prefers single men In the army. He
was twitted once on being a woman
hater. He answered smilingly that
ho was Just the reverse. Then he be
came serious 'and said that experi
ence had taught him that single men,
as a rule, make better soldiers than
married men. The latter, he declared,
are bound to koep in mind the welfare
of their wives and children, and on
this account are apt to draw back
from dangers that would not causo
them an Instant's hesitation if they
had only themselves to think of.
Therefore, a wife, though she may be
very ambitious for her husband's sue
cess, Impairs his efficiency as a ol
dier in action.

while several hundred persons scour

were sunk Into the boy's Index fin
ger of the right hand.
As soon as he realized what had
happened the lad jumped from tho
bed and, grabbing a chop ne, cut tho
finger off just nbovo the bite. Ho
lost some blood from tho crude opera
tion, but has suffered no injury as a
result of the snake bite. It Is sup
posed tho snnko camo In through tho
door in the afternoon while tho fam

under tho top cover of tho bed, nnd
was not seen when the fnmlly went
to retire. Young Hall tumbled Into
bed In much the same way as nil
youngsters do, and threw his hand
over on the snake, making It mad
and causing it to strike at once. The
fangs wero burled In the flesh of tho
