It has been ft long time since we had any discussion with our friend of the ikin Hampton Tribune, anil we dislike to do it for the ronton thai he ii 10 liable to lose hie ordinarily good temper. JFor eorae reason he has been trying to precipitate a controversy with ui fer come lime, and in a recent issue he iirops on to ni on the tariff queilion, and especially on the tin Induitry in wordi following to-wit: "Hae Mr. Uurdiok erer seen it stated in a demeoratie paper that tiu plate CAWNOT he made In the United StatosP The Idea that a sheet of steel or iron eaanot be dipped In melted tin in this country was never conceived in the mind of a democrat or any othor person of sense. It has been claimed by tho democratic press that there Isn't a tin mine, of any consequence, lu the Unltod States; that practically all of the blot* tin must be Imported; that if we could impart tin plate cheaper than wo could manufacture It tho best thing to do was to produce something liore that we can produce cheaper than England can and trade it for tin plato. 1 hose are the claims of all sensible democrats. How eomes the REVIEW with tho assertion that our Bianulaoturers are produolng better tin plato than do the English and soiling it at lower priess than it was previously sold. Now will the UKVIEW answer thoso questions: Has the McKlnley bill wrought any changes in this country wtiieh make it possible for manufacturers to dip shouts of steel into molten tin at cheaper rates than they could. have done It a year or two ago? If wb can now Import block tin and work it up into tin plate nnd sell it cheapen' than does Eagland, could wo not hare done tke same thing without a tariff, whloh enables the manufacturers in this country to form trusts aud rob the people? And please toll us, also, why tho manufacturers asked for a tariff on tin plate if they knew that they could produce it and sell It cheaper than it was being sold? Wasn't it idiotic under such conditions, for them to ask for the passage of a law which would tend to stimulate competition at homo to such nn extent as to reduco the price of the manufactured article? But tin pints is NOT ciioaper than it was beforo the enaotmont of tho McKln ley bill •• it Is higher ilia robbing of the public has boguu. Hut 'a ceul on a tin cup' is so lit'.Te that the buyer will nover realize it, you know, aud will go x>n sustaining the tariff." We give our friend's article entire in order to be perfectly fair to him as well as to enable us to anstvor bis interrogatories moro lucidly. To the first interrogatory we answer emphatically TKH . Until within the past few months tho democratic press, both high nnd low, insisted that thcru was not a pound of tiu oro mined in this country, nnd there was not a sheet of tin plate rolled hero, AND COULD NOT B«, for the reason that wu had neither the machinery nor tho skilled workmen to do it. It was claimed there was a secret process known to HIP tiu manufacturers of Wales by wlii. a tho sheeU could be made very thin nnd at tho earns time vory tough and pliablo, a dessideratum that we could not reach ia this country. Even after Prvsideut Harrison made his trip to California a year ago, aad saw with his own ayes the pigs of tin from the Tomescal mines corded up along tho railroad track for shipment the domoorallo papers still maintained that It was all a lie, that uo tin was mined In this country! And In Ohio during the last campaign, when McKlnley himself dipped the sheet of steel Into the molten tin nnd with his own hand made tin from tiu plate, it was still assertod that no tin was or could bo made here! Of course we assert, as is claimod in the following paragraph, that our manufacturers are making a better quality of tin and selling it at a lower price than before the law was enacted. We do not assert that it is sold at a loss price than It was sold AT TUB TIME the law was euaotod, though the advance Is very slight. But taking the average of ton years befero the passage of the ' bill it Is much cheaper now. Now as to the direct questions: "Has ' the McKlnley bill wrought any ohnngea wbtoh make it possible for manufacturers te dip sheets of steel Into molten tin •t cheaper rates than they could have done it a year or two ago?'' To answer that question it would only be necessary to point to steel nails, wbiob. before the tariff of two cents a pound was put on them, sold for sis to eight cents. Today they are told In Pittsburg for tl.60 per keg of 100 lbst The same result followed the placing of a , high tariff on steel rails, and it always follows where we have the raw mat*' rials for manufacture. As the next two paragraphs are* continuation of the Mat question we will combine them in the reply. •'; If we can now make tin and sell it as cheap, or oheaper on the; average of years, than England, would we not do the same thing without a lailfi? Ne, wfe could not. And why? Simply because we oeuld not have what some tdrm a monopoly of ths market. For instance a tin plato plant waipm) in under free trado In tin plate, As soon aij Hi product was put on the.marmot EnffUnd wvuUI drop in; *:'-|»rgo , '- f »r, tiiore aud put the prioe »v farJjflftf jht cost of manufacture that the debit nev •.Iknil would oollnpM JIB tbrM »yoU»t VfUeti Soglftnd. wpqld^pH^UU t!&,]&Ug high «noagh to »»kfcjj^JfljiMr" has been clone Jq 1 " ** PMt. \.]}Mifm, dbBf.' MmtiUvl" and tho same interest on Capital invested that they wore subject te. aad this thty eould stand, especially when there was a ready market for all they could produce. It is plain for any one to tee that they could not stand low prices when the mirket was glutted rith imported tin admitted free of duty. The concluding paragraph, "a cent on a tin cup," is unworthy of notice because our friend and everybody else knows that there bas boen no such advance on a tin cup, and no advance at all for that matter. Ho and they know that with tho rapid development of the i ml in try now going on it will not bo a year before tin will be cheaper than it ever has boon, but even then we shall not buy a tin cup, any cheaper than we do today. Ia conclusion we append a synopsis of the repoit of Ira Ayer, a special agent of the treasury department, who hns just mado an exhaustive report to Secretary Foster on the tin question: "Quarter ended Septomber 30. 1191 — Five manufacturers reported, tin plates, 162,489 pounds; terne platos, 074,433 pounds; total, 826,92J pounds. Quarter ended Deeembor 31—Elovon manufacturers reported, tin plates, 216,911 pound*; ternc plates, 1,193,910 pounds; total. 1,409,821 pounds. Quarter ending March 31, 1892— Nineteen manufacturers reported, tin plates, 1,099,668 pounds; tome plates, 1.904,431 pound*; total, 3,004,087. These figures do not Include the production of sheet iron or sheet steel used in the manufacture of articles tinned or ternc plated, estimated at 2,000,000 pounds. Mr. Ayer says the Indications are that under existing conditions tho production of tho country before the close of the second (Weal year will bo in excels of the annual rate of 200,000,000 pounds. Accompanying the report are n largo number of lcttors from manufacturers giving descriptions of their plants prospects, nnd generally expressing a linpo thxt the law will bo permit tod to remain unclisngod." little higher to the retailers for a short time, but the latter were never enabled to sell to the consumer at an advance, while during the past year noarly all goods have been sold cheaper than before, as the Telegraph fraakly admits. This being thu case what ground is there for tho democrats to go before the people asking for a redue- tlon of the tariff that goods msy be made cheaper? The idiotic absurdity of such a proposition is too great even for tho democratic Telegraph, and we do not wonder that it demands some thor issue not so fully and completely exploded by feels. To presume upon tho gullibility not to say idocy of the peoplo on this question after what is now nctually known is to place a vory estimate on their common sense. The Telegraph tells a solemn truth whan it says that the country cannot again be carried by the democrats on the issue ofirec trade. AIT HONEST ATJKISSION. Wo have been constraiued to censure the Dubuque Telegraph a good deal for its position on free silver coinage, single tax, etc., but we have given it credit for a great dual ef independence and ability in its editorial columns In a latu moo it pointed out the necessity of tho domoarats raising some othor issue thun tho tariff, and took occasion to present its free silver ideas as such issue. Hut as there is neither danger or hope oJ the lattor issue being mada by tho national convention at Chicago it is usoleis to s,>ond aay time on that subject. Republicans would bo only too glad for this issuo to be raised but it will not be, because tho democrats MUST have New York, Connectl cut and Now Jersey to win, and they kuow that not oao of these states can be carried on a free silver platform. But what wu started out to do was to givo the viows of Ilia Telegraph on the tariff issue, and this is what It says vurbatim: "The Telegraph may be rulstakeu but it Is satisfied that, whoover the enn- didato, Ui oro 'is not promise of success for the party in the tariff issue alone, Hecnuse the democrnts swept the conn try on this issuo iu 1890 it does not fol low that llioy will or can repeat the performance In 1892. Then tho McKlu ley law had just been enacted, and rotallers, anticipating that tho maau facturors would raiso prices, marked up thoir (,oods. Consumers had oonse- quentiy to pay more for fabrics nftor the bill had become operative than they had paid beforo, and assuming that this would bo permanent, aud that tho bur den of iudirect taxation had beon increased when it should have been diminished, tens of thousands of them who had formerly voted tho republican voted the democratic tlukot. But the advance in prices was only temporary, Soon after the election they receded to the former general lovil, and today— whilo linens, pearl buttons, tin plate and a fow other artloles are slightly higher, • they are lower on the whole than at the tiiuo the bill was passed By Its failure to raise prices the MoKin- ley act has disappointed both its friends and enemies; but tho fact that It has thus failed is a ooncluslvo proof that tho domoorats can not as.effectively use It In ths approaching campaign as they did two years ago. Logioally, the democrats should declare against .the principle of protec tlon and in favor of free trado, but as the masses are not yet ready to accopt the latter, it would be uusafe to pronounce for it ia the platfoim. Yet i pronounoemeut on the tariff similar to that made in 1884, and whloh was reaffirmed in 1888, would not give much greater promise of success; for as do fin ed by the taiilt plank of the '84-'8( platforms the diflerenco between the demoorallo and republican parties Is not a difforonee of principle but of rates. - Both would oontinue the policy •t protection, but one would make the avwrago tariff rato low while the other would make it high. As we now see, a high tariff rate -protection haying multiplied faotories until competition Is •reducing prises in spite of It—doet not neoessarlly mean high prices, for concurrently with the highest tariff we have ever had prises are lower .than,at any previous period. At all this it universally kuowu, it Is vain to suppose that on a platform domandlng free 'raw materials aud a redaction but contlnu atlon of duties on manufactured goodSi a policy which would reduce the issue between the parties to a question of only a tew oonts, the democrats can win. There it not enough in the ittac to arouse the peoplo. A bold declare tlon for free trade would ohalleugi attention and make an animated can vats, but at hat been said free trade it not talQolently well understood to assure a triumph." Bear in mind the Telegraph Is a dent ooratlo paper, it It not tunh a demo oratic paper at the Cedar Hapldt Uazette it a republican paper. It did not support Wheeler for governor and it not now supporting Harrison or any other republican for president, It it just M much of« democratic paper as the Herald or Leader, sod realty more w, ! for It support* the Iowa deu>ooratio before on fice coinage at mil at fi«c/ 4r«d«.

Par lies calling for any of them will please say "Advertised:" J. L. Hughes, J. McCann, Ann Olsson. Jxi. PKRHT , P. M. - -If. S. Harris, of Norton, Kansas, in remitting for the RBYIF.W another year, says crops are looking fine and they are still centented, having resided there now five years, aad "we could hardly get along without the old home paper." We see by hii Utter head that Mr. Harris is engaged in fine stock railing, Clydesdale horses and Poland China hogs. Ho calls his place "Prairlo View Stock Farm." THIS week's Courier-Journal bas two more long editorial letters from Washington on the political situation. It is a dismal view that Mr. Watterson takes of It. He can figure out nothing but dire defeat unless Cleveland and Hill aro both shelved and sorao strong man ho can unite tho factions, placed In nomination. Ho is far seeing onough to know that no democrat can bo ctlact- od without New York, and this in the way he fenli about Cleveland and that state: "Mr. Cleveland carried Now York in 1884 by a bare plurality. He lost it in 1888 uy a majority away up in the thousands. The parly was fairly united in tho first instance, and entirely united in the stcnml. Now, it is split wide open from one end of the state to the other, and, bravely as the devoted and enthusiastic but inadequate band of Mr. Clovoland'a following would fight tho battle, thoy would be overwhelmed. Enthusiasm Is a good thing as far as it goes. But il does not go far enough. The numbers aro against Mr. Cleveland and at the ballot box it is numbers that count. There are In New York nearly a million and a half of voters. Let us ssy thal twelve hundred thousand of these are divided iu noarly equal portions betwoon tho democratic and republican parties, with throe hundred thousand left to represent the independonls, the cranks nnd '.ho floaters. Of tho latter either parly has the chance to secure tho lion's share. But suppose cither should enter n campaign with handicaps to carry among its own voters, how would the matter stand? Mr. Cleveland hns nover shown any strength with tho floating vote. He was electod govsrnor because a hundred ttiousundi'opiiblican* stayed away from the polls. He carried the state for presidvnt two years later by tho merost- scratch, with Conkling, Bur chard and Providenco to help him Four years later, ho lost it by nearly liftoen thousand. What has happened since to indicate that, out ot power, with no federal fabric to back him, but a divided party in front of him, he is stronger now than he was four wars ago? If it wore required to vindicate a principle, I should exclaim 'God «)'• it!' But Mr. Cleveland represents nothing which other, and moro available democrats than he, do not represent as well as ho. We gavn him his renominalion in 1888, and, with eveiy thing in his favor, ho lost liia election. It is a demonstrable proposition that now, with everything against him, ho can not win it. In New York, lie will have to bridge an impassable gulf. In llis wost. his silver views and record give us no assurance that he can mifke Ibo gains to compensate for his losses in the east. Even in Indiaua his name is the key note to a schism. He has played out ills good luck, and ho ought not to ask or expoct his party blindly to back his bad luck." THE following, from the Rookford Register, expressos our viows to a dot. and every word of it is gospel trnlh. Wo arc only surprised that the Charles City people will tolerate such a barna- ole and givo it any patronage at all Suoh a light on a contemporary for no other reason than that he has hold the position for throo years that the sol urnnator held for fourteen years is worse than contemptible--it is despicable: "It is an uuonlted for and malignant fight, that waged by the Advocate man against the Chartts Oily postmastor and his administration of the ofiloo. It comes with mighty poor graoo for him the 14 year incumbent of the same ofiloo, the presiding genius of the dirty, cobwebby holo which was so long endured by the patrons of the Chas. City office, to in any way crltiolse the present clean and satisfactory management of the office, and when It comes to official connection with politics, there was moro skulduggery aud orafty Manipulation of politics by him in one week than in a whole four years' term under Dyke." «s EDWARD ATKINSON is a noted free trader, yet this Is what he says in the May number of the Forum to comfort the "calamity tbrlekers" who are ours- ing the protective tariff: "Thero hat never been a period In the history of thit or any other country when-the general rata of wages was at high at it it now, or the prises of goods relative to the wages at low at they are today, nor a period when the workman, in the ttrlot »onse of the word, hat to fully secured to hit own usa and enjoyment such a steadily and progressively Increasing proportion of a constantly increasing product," «sssss -ass»nassss Why They Knelt Charles II. of England waa noted foi his good nature, ttnd although ho was sometimes called "Unthinking Charlet," yet his heedlessness was more an apparent than a real characteristic.
