Chicago Chronicle: From a Mlnu'o
sota editor The Chronicle has received
a copy of a circular sent out by a Chi
cago wool commission house, which for
convenience sake we may call Wool
worth & Co., accompanied by tho ques
tion, "What can you say to this?"
It may not bo necessary to sny much.
The circular, which may have been
written by the residuary rhetorical leg
atee of Sir Boyle Roach, seems to speak
for Itself, as It were, "through Kb hat."
In their opening paragraph Woolworth
& Co. convoy the Information that tho
wool situation "Is the gloomiest, on
record; it is simply paralyzed."
Emerging from their gloomy paralysis,
they remind their readers that "tho
darkest cloud has Its silver lining, and
sometimes covers the most brilliant
sunshine." At other times, no doubt,
It covers the most silvery moonshine.
"We believe," they cheerfully continue,
"that furrows In the dark depression
of trade are widening; if such be the
case wc will soon realize a change,
with prosperity and confidence again
at the helm." With these parties at
the helm of the plow wo may expect
the furrows In the dark depression not
only to widen but to deepen until they
blossom as the rose on the hill tops
It grieves one to learn that "our
flocks are Imprisoned behind the tan
gled web of uncertainty" and that for
eign flocks are increasing in value and
In numbers while American wool goes
begging for buyers, selling nt a dis
count In every market of our country."
But It is cheering to learn from tho
same high authority that "the price of
wool has certainly reached a climax;
there is no doubt that the bottom has
been touched." There's nothing llko
touching bottom, even If It is the bot
tom of n climax, or what prosy people
might call an anti-climax.
What can we says to this? Why,
that Woolworth & Co. aro not second
in a certain kind of talent to tho mayor
of a German town who, in a formal
address to the emperor, said: "No Aus
tria, no Prussia! Only one Germany!
Such are the words which the mouth
of your Imperial majesty has always
had In Its eye." And In their advice
to shepherds to hold their wool in
anticipation of the election of McKln
ley they are not unlike another illus
trious German Count Falkenberg
who urged his friends in the reichstag
to "seize the stream of time by the
But Is there nothing serious to say
to this? Yes. The gist of the circular
is this: Hold your wool and vote for
McKinley and a high tariff on foreign
wool. Thus will you get high prices
for your wool. This may be good ad
vice for the wool growers, but it over
looks the wool consumers, who are
much more numerous. It even over
looks the average wool grower himself,
who, under a McKinley tariff, pays out
two or threo times as much in artificial
prices for woolen goods as he gets in
artificial prices for his wool.
The circular assumes that the wool
grower will be ruined Irretrievably if
the government does not help him get
an artificial price for his wool. We
heard something like this a number of
years ngo, when It was proposed to
abolish the internal tax on matches.
Under that tax a combine of a few big
manufacturers enjoyed a monopoly.
Representatives of the combine claim
ed that the repeal of the tax would
ruin their industry.
their protest the tax was repealed. As
a result we now havo cheap matches,
and while Diamond Match stock brings
225 In the market wo may safely con
clude that the Industry Is not ruined.
We may be equally sure that while
free wool will give us cheap wool and
cheap clothing It will not exterminate
our flocks. - Woolworth & Co. are ns
mixed In their facts and philosophy as
they are in their metaphors.
"Pmper I.bor" V v vin.
Consul General Judd tcently sent
to the state department au official com
munication touching upon certain fea
tures of the industrial situation In Ger
many. Speaking of this communica
tion, McKlnley's personal organ in
Chicago says: "Mr. Judd Inadvertent
ly reveals the fact that the wages of
German cloakmakers have been grad
ually reduced until an operative is
compelled to pay rent and purchase
clothing and food on $1.25 per week."
It Is entirely safe to say that Mr.
Judd dd not reveal that fact Inadvert
ently. The McKinley organs have
been telling their readers that the tar
iff of 1S94 was constructed In the In
tereets of foreign workmen. They have
I claimed with especial persistence that
! the new law waB n "pudding" for the
operatives of Austria nnd Germany,
who were prospering mightily at tho
expense of American operative. Mr.
Jtuld may havo been aware of this
i claim of tho McKlnleyltes. He may
have revealed the alleged fact regard

Europe." But Mr. Judd has injudi
ciously and wantonly contributed val
uable material to the rrote.ctlon litera
ture that will be mado available in tho
coming campaign by giving ofllclnl tes
timony to the fact that there In such
a thing aa the "pauper lohor of Eu
rope." Here we have the old protectionist
trick of setting up a free trade nitn
of straw and bnttlng and punching it
all over tho ring and out of nil human
semblance as If It were a Hying an
tagonist. No freo trader has over do
nled that working people In Europe get
lower money wages than working peo
ple in this country get. There Is no
reason why they should not admit
that. They ndmlt also that tho people
of Asiatic countrlcB got much lower
wages than the pcoplo of European
Tho point that free traders make and
that protectionists always dodge Is that
working peoplo who get high wages
havo nothing to fear from working
people who got low wages, and do not
need any tariff protection. Working
people In free trade England get much
higher wagos than working peoplo in
protectionist Germany, but they beat
the Germans not only in neutral mar-
, ketB but even in Germany In many
.tJInea of production. Euroneans trot
twice as high nominal wages as Asiat
ics get, yet they Bend their productB
to every accessible part of Asia and
sell them In competition with the prod
ucts ot Asiatic "pauper labor."
Even Robert P. Porter, whose stand
ing as a champion of protection is not
below that of McKinley, has discovered
this fact. Tho protectees havo been
trying to create a scare about Japan
ese competition, and Porter has been to
Japan to sec about it. His report to
the very McKinley organ above quoted
Is to the effect that western nations
have nothing to fear from Japanese
competition In manufactures.
If the .McKinley organ were both In
telligent and sincere It would accept
the testimony of ItB own illustrious
high tariff correspondent and not pre
tend to be Ignorant of the established
fact that men who get high wages have
nothing to fear from the competition
of men who get low wages. It would
be too much to expect that a protec
tionist should be able to understand
why this Is so, but he ought to be hon
est enough to admit a notorious fact
and leave less fat-witted people to fur
nish the explanation. Of course, the
shrewd protectees know how it Is.
Their victims and certain of their or
ganists are the only ones who labor
Hopkins' Itrclprnclty Scheme.
As chairman of a subsection of the
ways and means committee Represent
ative Hopkins of Illinois took much
pains to collect the opinions of Inter
ested parties about the Blaine Bcheme
of commercial friendship by compul
sion. The Interested parties were most
ly pork packers, millers, and makers
of agricultural implements and ma
chinery. From such peoplo Mr. Hop
kins obtained a great bulk of opinions,
mostly identical in substance, and all
of which could be reduced to a very few
pages without material Io6s of either
eenso oc force.
Hopkins prepared a bill after he had
accumulated his stock of Identical opin
ions looking to the Immediate making
of a lot of dickers similar to those of
Mr. Blaine. But DIngley and the rest
of the full committee sat down on that
with all the crushing weight of a dozen
Tom Reeds. These gentlemen were too
shrewd to commit themselves to a poli
cy which they knew could not be work
ed again with any degree of success.
They Were willing to make the most of
the fruit of Mr. Hopkins' labors as
campaign material for the , simple
minded, but further than that they
would not go.
Thereupon Hopkins applied himself
laboriously to the task of strinclne out
' a report of more than a hundred type
written pagos. This he haa completed
and the committee w!U take measures
to spread it abroad among those who
will admire it for its bulk, its profound
Ftatlstlcal aspect and its sonorous title

profound documents, to remain unread

TOMB OF AN EARLY BUDDHA.
Discovery of nn Intcrlptlon Thnt Chung

Dr. Fuhrer, archaeological surveyor
In the northwestern provinces of India,
has made a discovery which beems to
curry tho origin of Buddhism much
farther back than tho accepted date In
the fifth century beforo Christ, says
the Edinburgh Scotsman. In the vil
lage of NIJHva, In swamps within tho
borders of the state of Nepal, he found
an Asoka pillar, surrounded for half
a mile by vast brick rulna of monas
teries and of a still magnificent domed
tomb of Konagamana. The portion of
the pillar which is still erect has un
Inscription establishing the fact that
the Buddha commemorated Is tho same
us the Konagamana of the Buddhists
of Ceylon, who was the twenty-third
mythical predecessor of the historical
Buddha. The Napalese speak of the
pillar as the smoking pipe of Bhlma
Sen, their giant hero. Tho native dur
bar, or council, is to bo aBked to sanc
tion a scientific Instigation of the
ruins of this once great settlement of
the Aryan tribe of Sakyas, who settled
112 miles to the northeast of the city of
Benares at a date hitherto only con
jectural. Gen. Cunningham, who, un
der lx)rd Canning, began the archaeo
logical survey of India, long ago Identi
fied KapllavaBtu, In this region, us the
birthplace of the historical Gautama
and the capital of the Sakya clan. It
is in the 8ub-Hlmaluyan district now
called Basti, and must have extended
northward Into Nopal, which la still
second in sacrcdncss only to Benares.
Nepal has now a serious dispute with
the Llama government of Lhasa on Its
hands', and is always Jealous ot British
or foreign visitors. But should the
government of India net discourage its
propobed campaign In Thibet thp dur
bar may be willing to help Dr. Fuhrer
to dig on a sufficiently great scale.
