WELLINGTON. N. Z., Nov. 1. tSpecial
blegram to The Bee.) The operations of
.e American Harvester combination In
lew Zealand continue to attract the' at
tention of public men and the public gen
erally. Members of the local parliament
nnd the 'premier have been Interviewed by
representatives of the New Zealand manu
facturers, who, after fully considering the
..... a . i , ,itended to believe that the recent action of
atter, decided to ask the government top ... ,,-,.
prohibit the combine from operating In
this colony. At the same time they ex
plained that they did not wish such pro
hibition to prevent local firms from Im
porting the goods of the combine. It was
slated that the combine had b-en in em
inence for only five years, but It was only
within the last year that It entered Into
active, competition with colonial firms,
formerly the colonial firms had Imported
"trust" goods when they wanted them, and
no firm had any serious cause for com
plaint. It was suggested to members of Parlia
ment that, the Implement Industry would
' saved to the colony If the combine were
subjected to the prohibition mentioned.
Unless some decided steps were taken the
local Industry would be wiped out and then
the combine would be able to charge any
price It liked for Its machines, so thut
while farmers might get cheap machines
for a while eventually they would be the
sufferers. The combination had taken an
Australian harvester to America, dupli
cated It, and -exploited Argentina, the re
ault being that today It was selling In
South America for $700 the harvester that
was calling In Australia where there was
still some competition for 1400.
The manufacturers contend that unless
some drastic measures are taken against
the combination the same situation will be
created In this colony.
Americas Workma Cheapest.
Another grievance of the local manu
facturers Is that whereas "trust" Imple
ments come In duty free, there Is a duty
on -parts and on raw material Imported
for manufacturing purposes, The combine.
It appears, has also taken a' New Zealand

edge; that' they have no legal protection
ngamst; this, though the colonial code of
business morality gives each firm" protec
tion agalgst Its fellow firms:
The Australian manufacturers also point
out that America scores particularly In re
ward to labor, the American artisan Work
ing with trie best machines on piece-work,
ho that his output is much greater and
much cheaper than that of the colonial
workman. 'Who receives a fixed Wage and
ho works just as he pleases.
Simply put. the position Is that the New
Zealand manufacturer cannot meet tha
competition of the combinations of Amer
ica. It Is claimed that the 'trust" has a
i-upltaj of $125,000,000 and that It will be able
to annihilate tha colonial firms within four
or five years, or st all events reduce their
establishment to the level of repairing
.When the question of - prohibiting the
combination from operating in New Zea
land was put to the premier ho asked the
ueputation if . they wanted a commercial
war with America. ; Mr,. Sedon. confronted
with a general election and probably some
opposition from the farmers, 'did not seem
disposed, to take any action either by way
of prohibition or the Imposition of a pro
hibitive tariff. All he would do was to ad
vise tha manufacturers to confer with rep.
itssntaUves of the farmers and endeavor
to prove to them that in the long run It
would be best for them to patronise the
"Trnat" R reaentative Talks.
Mr. Rywater. the local representative of
,W comoinauon in New Zealand, exnlained
that the "trust" handled the Dehorn, the
Ierlng. the MoCormlck. the Piano and
the Champion binders and that the reason
of the amalgamation was a desire to reduce
the cost of management There was now
one office and one staff, so that a great
saving in expenses nad been effected, with
the result that the "trust" waa able to sell
machines cheaper than formerly. Instead
of wishing to squeese out the local men.

encourage them by giving orders for the

REDMOND ON HOME RULE

DUBLIN. Nov. !. Special Cahl.gTHm to

dressing a United Irish league nitlr.g at
Loughrea In County Galway, said thnt Ire
land was united and determined to r main
united. Perlous amendments were required
to the land act to settle the Trlsh land
question. The real land question was the
uneconomic holding and the grass lands,
and as to that In the west the act had
been a failure. Compulsory powers were
wanted to vttle the question.,, Dublin castle,
had Issued regulations making It Impossi

act, and Mr. Wyndham. who had Issued
those regulations before he left oinre. In
the form of confidential letters, was re

Mr. Redmond went on to say that tha
home rule question was at that moment
passing through a strange and Interesting
stage In England. They had recently been
told by several English politicians of both
parties that the home rule qustlon was
dead, or at least of so little urgency and
Importance that It ould safely Ik put on
the shelf with lost causes and exploded
fallacies. Strange If home rule was really
dead that these men were never tired of
speaking and writing about It. Tho truth
was that home rule was again beginning
to loom once more, larger and larger on
the political horizon. There were some
liberal politicians who believed or who pre

whose declarations on home rule were
timid and doubtful, meant that tne Irish
party mere about to acquiesce In the shelv

He now respectfully told these gentlemen
that they were living In a fools' paradise.
It was the settled policy of the Irish party
at this moment to do everything they
could to discredit and weaken and defeat

On the other hand, there appears to be

thai there has been a steady and persist

take the Indian office. One will find there
that through the action of the secretary of

Upon matters of foreign policy there does

to be found In connection with matters of
domestic policy. This was clearly Indicated
In the address of Victor Cavendish when he
remarked at Derby: "I am glad the gov

approval or the liberal party. If the lib

"efficiency" as a mere catchword, not a
principle. Anyone who does not believe
that when Lord Rosebery called for effi
ciency he uttered the last note of patriotic
statesmanship ls in their eyes accursed.
The Westminster Gazette, which so co-
quettishly declared itself the other day as
being "teased by Lord Roaebery's threats
of detachment" struggles heroically to res
cue "efficiency" from the catchword cate
gory, but its argument is quite unconvln-

Secretary Taft went Into the history of
the operations of the United States gov
ernment In connection with the canal at
considerable length. He detailed the or
ganisatlon of the first commission, the ap
portionment of work among members of the
executive committee and finally gave again
his version of the Wallace episode. This
latter explanation was Incidental, and did
not vary from what waa made public at
the time Engineer Wallace severed his con
nectlon with the canal. The experimental
work of excavation, done by Engineer Wal
lace on the Culebra cut, and on which his
support of a sea level canal ls based, was
pronounced of doubtful value, because of
the fact that it was done under conditions
not likely to prevail In actual working con
ditions, owing to the length of haul that
will be necessitated by the proper disposi
tion of the soil. By the first of Decem
ber, saye Secretary Taft, the United States
government will have expended lfiO.000,000
