Wo rnpnhli.ih from tlio Dceorali Republican a latiar wrilt*t> for that paper In r*plj to questions risked, by this N. A B. Taylor Cotnpnuy, of Phila- tlolplila. ft boni9 established in 1810. It K' T0> * m *"J f»*l* about tin of which the m»§» of people are I^nernnt, and should bo road by everybody Inter- nitud in that industry or the McKlnloy bill: I'nn .ADii.i'iitA, Deo. Uth, 1891. EI>ITO*I llBi'uni.iCAN:— Ountlemen:—lleplylntr to your fnvor of tho 11th whieh lifts just resnhed m, asking wliftt In the dlflervnco between it roofing and terne pinto, wn hcg to iny that terno li limply n Franaii word meaning dull and it n term uiod to deil^nnto a kind of tin plate, thereforo tenia and roofing both mean nxadly the iftniu tiling. Pluvious to 181J bright tin only WAR made, that it, ilieel iron or sheet itool coated with pure tin. In that yuar thoso sheets of bright tin worn locko.l together and paasod through a bath of Innd. Tide work wan oono in l'hilndol- phla. The YYslsh mantifactureri nt onco ooncoivcd the idea of mixing the Irad and tin together a>d then coating tho blnck shsots, thereby saving the additional oxponio of the eaiiond operation. This wai called rooting tin or torne, and plntcs made in I Till way •are boeu coining to AmerioA evoi lince. Tho proportion of the motali used in the coating, varies witli difloront makers. We have seou platei, tliu coating «f which was 7* p'ir cent, of pure tin, while others wore ns low as 10 percent. Shoel iron or shoot stool cannot bo coated with load alooo oxccpliug by n special process which is very expansive. Tho term "tin plate," covers both - bright and roofing tin; that is sheets of iron «r steel conlod with puro tin, a mixture of tin and lrad. Wo have heard a great deal said nboul torne plate being manufactured In this country for • long timo. quantity of bright We feel tiiat tho tin madn lu tills country has beon much larger than roofing or torne, but the total amount of both is very insignificant. To our minds the unlversnl ignorance of what tin plato really Is has ennsod the most ridiculous artlclss to bo written on the sutjoot. The pi availing idea seoms to bo that tin plate is pure tin rolled into sknslB, which if you have ever examined, although llin thickness would bu say, oua-ctglilh inch, you would Und would be vory soft and pli able and woald not answor at all for suoli purposes as llu plato is generally usud. Tinware mnde of bright tin sold tinder the name of block tin is a very old trick of thu trade. Thure is no such thing ns ware mnde of puro block tin; it is all iron or steel, coated will puro tin or a mixture of tin and load; and that coated with a mixture of tin and lead is for rooting purposes Tlioro is no ronson why tin plato cannot bo made in thin country; wo huvo the steel, we havo the rolling aiills, and they have produced the stool slieetn; these are simply pickled, cleaned and then coaled with a mixture of pure tin or a mixture of tin and lead. The pro< cess is most simple; the lead is readily produced in this country and sold at a vory low price. Thoro ie pig lis in tills country; we have had somu from tho Xeniescal mines In California, and have found it equal to any wn ever saw imported. The prico of pig tin in Philadelphia is within a fraction of a cent of tho prico In London; tho freight on pig tin from Loudon to Philadelphia is about tho sauio as tho freight from New York to Philadelphia, namely about Id oonls por hundred pounds. ' Therefore the manufacturer hi Philadelphia should receive the same quality of pig tia is used by tho manufacturer in Wales, which wo understaud is generally the tin that comes from Australia, and it should cost them about tho samo E rlcc, because tho railroad freight from ondou to tho factories lu Wales will ycry likely bo About the samo an the oooao freight from Loudon to Philadelphia. Pig tin Is free, there is no duty; but Judging from tho remarks made by some writers we imagine thsy aro undor tho Impression that the aame duty existing ou tin plato Is also on pig tin. • We at'* making in Philadelphia both rooting and bright tin. We arc mat in* the roofing tin using the load from Missouri. Wo nru making bright tin using tlie tin from California, and havo turned out this day as handsome bright tin as we ever saw. It is luado from steel that was rolled in Pennsylvania, coated with pur* tin from California, and tho work is dono by won born, bred and raised lu Philadelphia. If this is not Aiuerioaii bright tin plat* we would Ilka to know by what terra It should be oalled Our present oapaolty Is 160 boxes par day. Wo havo on tho ground the lix- turos necessary to Inereaso our oapao­ lty to 200 boxes por day, and wa expect within a short time to havo a oapaolty of 400 boxes pur day. We would say that tho prlcos of the plates we aro making are exactly the samo as the prleos that have bo in ruling for some time past and w* feci that w* hav* accomplished a great deal, • A nation that can produo* almost auythiug from a pin to a loooru olive, should surely carry on the simple Industry of taking the blaok sheets, which are already mad* here, and properly lirepariog and coating them with puro tin or a mixtur* of tin and lead. Our work is one of business, purely and solely; politics have nothing what* ever to do with It. We hare no bill nor party to bolster, but bating Imported, for, so many yea**, the hlgh*st grade* of plate* that could be made, aud sold them under guarantee, holding our< selv*s personally responsible for the satisfaction give*, we considered it good, oommon busluess Judgment to prefer to make these good* here under our own personal supervision in plao* of having them made over throe thousand mile* , away aoeordlug to, our instructions, and we aro sur* that all right thinking people will agree with us. At any time you feel that we ean glv* you Information the* will be of interest, w* trntt you wilt not hesitate to adylso u*. Yer re sp»utfnlly. " «YG. TAYIOB Co'v.

If dotuoorallo papers will writ* out fully and if democratic congressmen will spoak out fully one chanter of th* history of damoorntlo policy sipou American affairs still within the memory of thoso not yet old, It will bo found that th* democratic party will mako yory slow progress lu brlngiug tho oountry to a repetition of democratic policy as to (roe trado. It is an amazing fact when soberly thought of, that in th* only four yoars that tho democratic policy of fr*o trado was evertriid In this country, th* government ran behind iu a time of peace twouly million dollar* a y*ar for uach yoar of James Buchanan's aduilnUtra- lion. It was a period of profound peace witli trado and business everywhere uninterrupted, with all th* pros- parity and conditions existing which tho democratic party claim mako free trado to desirable. And yut under this polioy the American people wore annually running into debt ou the ordinary expenditures of their government at the rate of millions of dollars. Howell Cobb, seorolary of the treasury, showed In hi* roport (or ltflO, thnt tho dofl- olenoy in thnt year wet about four million dollar*, but iu fact it wa* about twon.ty million*. There were thirty million* of American*. The expenditure of tho government wa* only a 11a.- tlo.ovor sixty million* a year. The United Slate* had half as many people as it ha* now. Mow the sixty million* of Americans hare to devise way* of moating.four.-hundred million dollar* of government expenditure in a year, ancT yet keep its revenae from blooming larger than Its neods. Tho democratic parly and th* American people must •erlously consider the alternative polioy to whluh the dcmooratlo party deliberately invite* th* oountry. Th* polioy 1* known. It I* not conjectured. There ha* been full and tried experience of it. It oan never be tried under better or more satisfactory conditions than In the four y*ar* from 1859 to 186*. And the faot must b* recognised thnt th* polioy resulted iu making th* gorernment when it numbered thirty million* of people, Wa* out of debt, and in time of peace run behind ov*rr year for four y**rs, aud in the last year twenty million of dollar*. Thar* is no disguise of the faot, ther* oan bo no suootssfal evasion of it, that It th* democratic party do what th*y say thsy mean to do, at to th* commercial policy of tho Uuited State* and of the tariff, thoy deliberately m«au to put upon Hilt oountrv a polioy wbloh bv the experience of th* four year* from 18*6 to 1860, tbow* that from the tint* they begin tholr polioy it will mak* thi* gorernment run behind from on* to two hundred million dollar* eaoh year on lie pronnt annual expenditures.

Rusk, department of agriculture. Our roceptlo* was most cordial. Th* Seo'y is a man of An* presence and would ornament th* cabinet of any government on earth. After a ploasant conversation relating to his department he sent one of the messengers of his bureau to guide us throagh tho labrynths of tho hot houae, whore we saw a splendid variety of most beautiful ferns, flowers, palm*, cacti and tho original of tho famoos naval cranfo tree, on which there was bud, blossom and fruit. This department would hav* been a delightful feast to Mrs. 11. Kerr and one that woald have roquired many weeks to do it justice. Wo were then conducted Into the seed packing department wkoro over a hundred women aro constantly employed, packing seeds *f every kind to bo distributed among •ixly million of people. Mr. Adams, tho gentleman who guided our party, proved to bo an old acquaintance of Mr. Hart's, of Morgan Co., Ohio, which accounts for tho special care he took In pointing out all tho objocts of interest in this new and rapidly growing department. From this we passed into tho Smithsonian Institute and National Museum, whero the accumulating wonders of ages would roquiro many volumes to des- oribc them. Mr. Hart was agreeably and repeatedly surprised to meet with relatives and old friends who aro still residents of tho homo of his boyhood. I can assurn you, friend Burdick, there are few men who havo attained Mr. Hart's ago who could keep on sight seeing from 9 A. M. to 13 o'clock At night. Last evening wo were most agrcoably entertained at t'ao house of Prof. John McCretry, formerly of Dubaque, Iowa. Ho is one of tho big brained men of Washington, and is rcc ognlzod as ft pest, philosopher and thinker. His pressncu on tlio platform always commands a full houso. This evening spent with tho poet of Iowa will long be remembered, for we wero entertained with fun, philosophy and soiunco in full measure; It was indued a "foast of reason and a flow of soul." G. L.
