Reciprocity WItli IlrazlJ.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 0. The Post an
nounces that the negotiations betweer
the United States and Brazil ( undci
the reciprocity clause of the new tarifl
law ) has resulted in the signing1 of an
agreement by Secretary Bhiine and the
Brazilian minister. The agreement
goes into effect January 1 next.
Under the provisions of the agree
mcnt Brazil reduces her import charge :
upon American products , farm , facto
ry and mine , io the extent of abou
? 5,000,000 annually. It is expected i
stimulus will be given to sugar impor
tation which will be increased so tha
in five years Brazil will be able to fur
nish all the sugar required in th <
United States. It is expected that , ii
three years , Brazil will pay the Unitec
States $ -5,000,000 in return for oui
manufactures and products. [ Not oulj
does Brazil place a great many Ameri
can articles on the free list , but it i :
arranged that on other articles in the
manufacture of which Europe com
petes with this country the tariff wil
be lowered in our favor.
President Harrison has issued u pro
clamation setting forth that the Brazil
ian minister has communicated to the
secretary of state the fact that in due
reciprocity and for the consideration oJ
admission into the United States , free
of all duty , of the articles enumerated
in section 3 of the tariff act to-wit :
Sugar , molasses , coffee and hides , the
government of Brazil has , by legal en
actment , authorized the admission from
and after April 1 , 1891 , into all estab
lished ports of entry of Brazil , free of
duty , merchandise named , as follows ,
provided that such shall be the pro
duct and manufacture of the United
States : Wheat , wheat flour , corn or
maize , and the manufactures thereof ,
including corn meal and'starch , rye ,
rye flour , buckwheat , buckwheat flour ,
barley , potatoes , beans , peas , hay , oats ,
pork salted , including pickled pork
and bacon , except hams ; fish , salted ,
dried or pickled , cotton seed oil ; coal ,
anthracite and bituminous , rosin , tar ,
pitch and turpentine , agricultural
tools , implements and machinery , min
ing and mechanical tools , implements
and machinery , including stationary ,
and portable engines and all machinery
for manufacturing and industrial pur
poses , except sewing machines , in
struments and books for the arts and
sciences , railway construction material
The government of Brazil has also
further authorized the admission with
reduction of 25 per cent of the exist
ing tariff duty in Brazil of the follow
ing named articles , produced or manu
factured in the United States : Lard and
substitutes thereof , bacon , hams , but
ter and cheese , canned and preserved
meats , fish , fruits and vegetables , man
ufactures of cotton , including cotton

manufactures thereof , except boots and

The government of Brazil has further

vent fraud in declarations and proofs ,
etc. , shall place no undue restrictions
on the importation nor impose any ad
ditional changes or fees therefor on the
Paddock' * Pure Food Bill.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 6. Senator Pad
dock has authorized the following
statement of his views as to the manner
in which the Paddock pure food bill
now pending would affect the packing
' 'It will not throw a straw in the
pathway of any honestly conducted
business in Chicago or elsewhere. It
is aimed at fraud and deception only.
Its object is to protect the public
against adulteration ; honest manufac
turers against dishonest competition
( which the bill makes illegal ) , and to
extend the export trade of the country
jy definitely fixing a standard for our
export products. In my judgment it
will bo of very great benefit to every
reputable industry engaged in the man
ufacture of food products or of drugs.
"The strong features of the bill , in
my opinion , are the clear definitions of
what shall constitute adulteration un
der the law ; the simple yet effective
machinery for its enforcement ; its
universality of application ; its unques
tionable constitutionality , and the cer
tainty that it will have back of it the
support of commercial honesty every
where throughout the country. "
"How will it affect food com
pounds ? "
"Ko food compound not injurious to
the health , and which is labeled as a
compound , comes under the prohibito
ry clauses of the bill. The bill only
requires that such articles shall be sold
ander proper designations and not as
.natations of other articles with a view
; o deceive unsuspecting purchasers.
[ t thus interferes with no trade marks
> r proprietary articles known under
iistinctive names in commercial trans-
ictions. In addition , the pure food
) ill provides against the fallibility of
iciencev It allows appeals to the
: ourts from the official tests of the
ihemical division of-the department of
igriculturq--and , provides both legal
and scientific safeguards against pos
sible errors in iho application of in
provisions to trade. There are no ob

Labor Demonstration In
WASHINGTON , Feb. G. There was i
monster labor meeting held at Gram
Army hall last night , attended by htm
dreds of Knights of Labor men ant
their representative officers , amonj
them Ilalph Beaumont , thewell-knowr
Knights of Laborspeaker. . Among
those who delivered speeches was Rep
resentative Connell of Omaha , who
was introduced as the author of the
eight-hour bill , the passage of whicli
was urged by the workingmen's organ
izations. Mr. Connell said a startling
condition of affairs existed in this
country. The rich were growing
richer , the poor poorer. One-half oi
the entire wealth of the country was
owned by 30,000 people. That certainly -
tainly was not a just or equitable dis
tribution of the wealth of the country.
The workingmen of the country were
not , he said , communists or socialists
or nihilists. All over the country they
saw workingmen assemble , as they
were assembled here but last night , to
secure their rights in a peaceable , or
derly manner , He thought they would
see good results from the agitation
going on among the farmers and work
ingmen. A proper adjustment of the
questions , the matter of transporta
tions and the great overshadowing
labor question was not , he thought , fai
distant. He believed the day was near
at hand when the great railroad sys
tems would bo not only controlled , but
owned , by the government. It was
urged that such a centralization oi
power was dangerous , but was it more
dangerous to centralize such a power
in tHe government than in the hands of
two men Jay Gould and Vanderbilt ?
By the right of eminent domain the
people could take the railroad property
just 'as the railroads took the lot of the
poor man that lay in its route , paying
full value for the road at a just ap
praisement of is actual worth and not
what its watered stock represented.
The government had a right to issue
money ; puts its stamp upon it and pay
for the railroad. The currency would
go out into the country and be used in
enterprises that would pay a better
than 2 per cent rate and give employ
ment to the unemployed.
Death to Combines.
INDIANAPOLIS , Ind. , Feb. 7. The
senate yesterday passed the most
sweeping measure that was ever aimed
against trusts in this state. The bill
provides that all trusts , pools , con
tracts , combinations , arrangements or
corporations which attempts to de
crease outputs , control prices or limit
production , shall be considered con
spiracies to defraud the people , and
any person being a member of such
organization shall be subject to a fine
of $1,000 to § 15,000 , and imprison
ment in the state prison for from two
to five years. This provision is made
to apply to any stockholder , or agent
or person interested in any way in the
management or profits of the pool , con
tract , combination , agreement or cor
poration. In cases where the com
pany is organized under the Indiana
laws , the charter is to be forfeited , in
addition to the punishment prescribed
in the penal section of the bill.
In another section it is provided
that any person who is injured by the
operation of the trust or pool , may sue
and recover damages double the sum
of injury which his business has suf
Cost of the Slonx AVar.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 6. A communi
cation , received by congress from the
quartermaster general's department ,
through the secretary of war , shows
that the Sioux Indian outbreak cost at
least $2,000,000. Transportation , ra
tions , ammunition and other expenses
constitute the principal items in the
appropriation asked. This is the di
rect cost of the outbreak. What there
will be in the way of bills for depre
dations committed by the Indians can
not be estimated. There are those who
believe that , directly or indirectly , the
expense will not be short of between
? 3 , SOO,000 and $4,000,000. It is now
acknowledged by every one that it
would be' far more economical and a
great deal less troublesome to the gov
ernment to sell all the Indian reserva
tions and take the money and pur
chase farms for the Indians in the
sast. Thus the tribal relations could
ba broken and the savages placed in
2ivilized communities where they would
have no opportunity to make them
