We produced of p'g Iron, the base of our Iron and steel industry, 3,500,000 tons to 1880; to 1890 our production had Increased to nearly 10 000 000 tons, and yet the products of Iron and steel are much lower now than to 1880. There to one exception to thto general rule of reduction namely, tin plate. We.bave.paid Great Britain — ^ , so that the census discloses that exclusive of cows, cattle increased to the group .of states and territories west of the If tosisiippl river and east of the Pacific slope from 14.908.c78 In 1880, to 88,866,907 to — - n i ncreaae of 12,000,000 head In ten i the mean time the number had not _ llmtoto-ed elsewhere, so that when more xapidly than the de- mana, the price fell to 1888 and 1889 to a point where no profit could be realized. Minor causes supplemented this great cause, such as transportation rates, and the business of slaughtering cattle was gathered into a few hands who were abie u deptess the price of live cattle, and still keep up the price of dressed meats. But readjusc- e soon so will anybody oulation, In our foreign commerce to measured to gold, we will again have a omrency fluctuating in value, going up and down as the speculators choose to have it go up and down. The effect of this ivHl be that all tbe laborers of our country, and all the producers will be to a degree at the mercy of those who speculate. It to said there Is loo much speculation now, and yet it is proposed to subjeot our people to speculatioa in the measure of value, the most delicate and sensitive nerve to all exchanges and commercial transactions, the Inevitable effec* of which is to subjeot them to additional Joss. The wagts of a day's labor will purchase less then than now, and all tbe producers on our farms apd to our fields will receive less than now in commodities tbat they need or use for what they produce. There can be no reason why we should take upon ourselves thto burden, and relieve all Europe from its stress and strain because of the scarcity of Cold.

Tin plate is 87 or 98 per cent Iron or steel, and 8 and 3 per cent of tin. With our great mines of iron, and our great facilities for producing iron and steel, why should we not make tin plate here and save thto drain upon our resources? It to claimed that with reasonable protection this can be done. The protection was given in the McKtnley bill and tie experiment is to be tried. If It to successful, as I believe it will be, this Welsh monopoly will be broken up and tin plats will be cheaper because of the competition as other Iron and steel pro. ducts are, because of thto competition to our country. Our success with thfa industry does not depend upon whether we do or do net produce tin. The Welsh manufacturers import tf'filr tiri largely from the straits of Malacca. Wp can do tbe same. But 3.000 tons of tin are required to make 100.000 tons of tin plate.

Boies to his New To k address stated that "the actual cost of producing corn, tbe most profitable of all crops that are raised to Iowa, has exceeded the entire value of tbe crop when harvestrd.sayirg nothing of the capital luv« sted to the land to produce It. The cost of "—-•—'—an acre of corn ready for market to -.. jrage price of thto corn soon after bar- vest during such period has beea 22 cents per bushel; the average crop has been thirty-three •"" —-«-••-» bushels, making the entire value . H ue ^ ue ° *" *"« Then he added, '-what ia lon of corn In Iowa is equally ««Ple 8 «*lMd on our p of th, world.^ ft ® — —. —, i •- — seven acres and six bushels will plant forty acres, so tbat 80 cents a bushel is al'owed for the seed corn used In p'anting. As this is generally gathered from the field ol corn of a prior year by the farmers themselves, and is the best of the corn selected from the woolo field, it set ms to me that 80 cents to a liberal estimate.
