Their incomes, per family, were as follows; United States, Si'M; Belgium, 8 :1511; France. 8404; Germany, S38~': Great Britain, 8">l !l. The expenditures for food by families of cotton workers in the United States was an average of S ~87; lu Germany, 8112, and in Great Britain 8240. For families engaged in the woolen industry the average expenditure for food in the United States was 8202; in France, S180; in Germany, $140, and in Great Britain 8233: For the families of glass workers the average cost of food in the United States was 8291; in Belgium, S237, and in Great Britain 8230. Examining the total average expenditures per family for all purposes, it is found that families in the cotton industry in the United States expended SOW; in France 8333; in Germany, 8282; in Great Britain, 8.102, and in Switzerland 834(1. The families in the woolen industry in the United States expended 830-1; in France 838-1; in Germany, 8281, and in Great Britain, 8401. The families engaged in the glass in industry in the United States expended 8700; in Belgium, 8-102, and in Great Britain S-180. It will be observed that the American workman receives from 20 to 140 per cent, more wages than men engaged in the same occupations in Europe. He lives better and spends more money. He is manifestly a better customer of the American farmer than his European competitor could possibly he if he bought all his food in this country. Taxation. With the exception of Pennsylvania, | New York, Delaware and Wisconsin, all the states tax both personal and real property. The income tax exists in live states, but the low rate, lax execution of the laws and the liberal exemptions make the returns very small. Five states have laws authorizing the taxation of inheritances, the aggregate from which, in the states of Pennsylvania and New York in 1888 amounted to $1,437,520. There is the tax on legacies, graduated income tax, the single land tux, the tax on special privileges granted corporations, such as banking, insurance, railroad and laud corporations, the poll tuxand other forms until the subject becomes confusion itself, and yet there are those who presume to suggest reforms in taxation who have never studied the question from fundamental principles. The subject of taxation for the purpose of raising revenues for the defray meut of national, state and municipal expenses is one of the most intricate which the people of any country have to consider. It is incorporated in some form in every national platform ever promulgated in this country and the people continue its ceaseless agitation. Ever since the Republican party came into power the country has made rapid advancement and it hns kept pace with public sentiment on the subject of taxation. With advance ment coine uew questions affecting the- subject and with the exception of national revenues, the experiments have been made by the states. The object of taxation is to obtain money from the- people to defray the public expense and the best system is that which obtains it with the greatest equality, certainty, convenience and economy. After all the experiments that have been made it must be conceded that the theory of the Republican party is the best for prueticul purposes with the laws fairly and strictly enforced, The wild and fanciful itreuins of the leaders of the so-called reform movement in this country are impracticable, ami must succumb to tlio force of lpglc, the history of experiments and the knowledge of the present practicable laws. donated to the famine sufferers by the | city of Philadelphia. The "City of Brotherly Love" has long been noted for the generosity of her citizens, and it is but fitting that the great city founded on the spbt where was consummated the first honest contract between the white and red man should preserve the enviable reputation handed down from WILLIAM PKNM by such acts of noble philanthrophy. 1 Commendable as are such good deeds as the sending to far-away Russia of timely assistance, Philadelphia has not escaped the sneers of envious citi/ens of other places, who have charged the Philadelphians with adopting that method of securing an advertisement. Be that as it may, relief sent to Russia will be just as acceptable to the starving peasants. Besides, those who are so pessimistic as to discard all theories of true philanthropy must confess that it is at least an admirable method of attracting attention; and the best thing the press of the country ettn do is to encourage just such advertising schemes. We hope the opportunity uft'orded will be seized by every citizen and every city that desires public no. tice and is able to pay for it by generous gifts to the poor. Ostentations philanthropy may not be us commendable as secret alms giving, but It is decidedly better than the parsimonious- ncss that gives nothing at all. If the people of Philadelphia have sent two ship loads of provisions to Russia tor the sole purpose of being talked about (a thing we do not believe) their action is still more commendable than that of cities that have sent no relief, secretly or otherwise. So far as the NKWS is concerned it is willing to lend its valuable influence as an advertising medium to any state, city or individual that lends aid to relieve distress and make the lot of suffering humanity easier to bear. ^, tice to the people of the state in the matter'of freight rates* It is outside roads, or roads that have inferior interests in Kansas that are making the most trouble. That noise wafted by western zephyrs is^he laughter of the wheat growers of that section of Kansas. On July 23rd Hutchinson will have four Republican conventions. It breaks the Reno county record. The Missouri is the only river in the United States declared by judicial authority to bo unnavigable. I •tea Political Notes. The output of salt from the Hutchinson plants Is about 700,000 barrels annually. The entire output from the state of Kansas is about 1,250.000 which supplies the present demand in the territory reached; but it could readily be increased to 2,000,000 annual output if necessary. The Hutchinson Salt company has one of the largest and most complete dairy and table salt refineries west of New York, supplying the creamery trade of Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas, entirely displacing imported brands in those states.—Kansas City Gazette. 1 -' That the output could be readily increased to 2,000,000 barrels, or even two or three times that quantity is true, but by reason of freight discriminations against the Kansas manufacturers the Michigan salt invades the natural territory of the Kansas men r and that almost to the very doors of their plants. This wrong must be righted before the output of the Kansas fields will be. increase* ^td 'Arle' amount of a barrel. • # • The Democratic congress is treating the country to an exhibition of plain and fancy treasury looting such aswill greatly simplify the way to Republican victovy in November. As the veto of a Republican president stands between the country and the raiders, it is perhaps just as well that they should go ahead and show how completely they would empty the treasury if they had the power.—New York Press. In Louisiana, where flerry Simpson, Peffcr, Clover, Vincent and other People's party advocates bad been to organize the third party which was going to carry the state, that party received 500 votes, the Republicans had 50,000 votes aud the Democrats 130,000. This is the. way the southern states are turning over to the People's party. They will not carry a single state in the Union this year.—Barton County Democrat. It docs not require much foresight to discern the outcome in the election in Kansas this fall. Whenever the Republicans throw 1 aside factional difference and assume an aggressive attitude they carry the state hy a big majority. The Republicans are going to ride rough shod over all opposition. The Alliance may "keep in the middle of the rond," but it will be on a side track, with the coquetting Democracy in the rear. This is the year for'"big crops and big Republican majorities in Kansas..—-Cimarron New West.

The vote was 186 to 05. It remains to be seen how the senate will treat this indefensible measure. Doubtless the house would have hesitated to assume the responsibility of passing it if there hud not been a Republican senate either to cheek or share it. The worst of the matter is that after this recklessness the house will be disposed to economize in directions where economy can be ill afforded.—New York Tribune.

The 850,000,000 river and barber bill passed by the Democratic house—yeas 180, nays 05 —has knocked the Democratic and mugwump organs, which have any sense or judgment left, all in a heap. The New York World (Dem.) says the Democratic house has stultified itself. ' 'The utmost economy in the other appropriations will hardly suffice to save the Democracy its most effective issue or to secure to.the party the record for honesty, consistency, and courage which the voters who gave it power had a right to expect. It is bad business and worse politics." The New York Sun (Dem.) says there is an outbreak of "crazy extravagance md selfish recklessness" among the Democrats of the house. The "lightweights, the self-seekers, and the mercenaries in the Democratic majority of the present house" arc threatening destruction to the party's hopes. "Their eyes are'fixed upon the star-eyed goddess and their fists are in the nation's money drawer. The situation is per ilous in the extreme. The Springfield (Mass.) Republican (mugwump) trains its whole battery of indignation and contempt upon "the fool Democratic congress." It declares that the passage of this bill "gives the lie to every profession made in favor of economy in expenditure of the people's money; to every claim of loyalty to the Democratic principle of closely limiting the jurisdiction of the federal government; and to every appearance of sincerity in its oft-repeated denunciations of the extravagance of the Billion-Dollar Congress' of the Republicans." Our mugwump contemporary parts company with this Democratic congress, which has "richly earned defeat." "It has proved itself at every turn an incompetent, hypocritical, untrustworthy, unorganized, leaderless mob." Proteotlan and Glove*. From the New York Press. There were 2,401,000 fewer pairs of gloves imported into the United States during 1801 than during 18110. The growth in population in - this country precludes the idea that there were any fewer gloves needed to supply this market in 1800, when 1,005,000 dozen gloves were importod, than in 1801, when the importations aggregated only 803,000 dozen. The constant tendency is to increase the sales of gloves unnually. The difference is one of the practical results of the MeKinley law. The additional gloves needed have been supplied by glove-makers of the United States. The activity produced in glove making centers in this country, like Glov- ersvillo and _ .lohnston, through the growing demand for American made gloves, has raised wages of glove cutters and other skilled workmen, besides producing a higher quality of American gloves than any heretofore manufactured. Meanwhile prices of American gloves have not been advanced< The glove making industry presents a complete argument for the protection principle.

Canada has already entered upon hor discriminating policy toward the United States, by granting a rebate of the tolls on grain passing through the St. Lawrence eunals for England when trans-shipped for Canadian ports only, a decision eminently satisfactory to forwarders of grain on the Canadian side of the river. To meet this discrimination Duluth shippers are now urging congress to chargo toll on Canadian vessels passing through the Soult Ste. Marie canal, and it is said the president will send an early 1 recommendation to congress to that effect. Canada may or may not secure the aid of Groat Britain in making a tariff war upon the United States, but in uny event the United States can take tjare of itself.
