IIOSTON Ml.ll.lANH WIN. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890

IIOSTON Ml.ll.lANH WIN. Shortly after the recent election of Mayor Hart in Boston be made p. proposition to increase the rate of taxation from $9 on the $1000 to 810 50. lie also proposed to raise the debt limit from 2 per cent .to 2^ per cent. Tbe Board of Aldermen Were easily convinced thai the city needed more money, hut some of the tax-pavers thought it would he better to exercise more discretion in the use of what money the city had than to add to the amount. This opinion 'became: so prevalent mat Mayor Hart soon abandoned the proposition to raise tbe tax limit. The proposition bad to go . before the Legislature, and while as yet the matter is undecided the comments ' uf \ the - Boston papers leave no doubt of its reji-ctiop. Ex-Mayor O'Brien led the remonstrance, and showed that- the present revenue of the city is am pie for allpurposes if ,it is fairly {. weir : expended. There seems to be a gang of politicians in all rich .; American cities whose chief purpose is to add to t...

ARE THE TIMES HARD? [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890

ARE THE TIMES HARD? There is complaint, not only in this State but in the East, of hard times. There seems to be a general agreement that business is dull in comparison to former, years. But when we come to figures the agreement is not sustained. Taking the country, at large the volunio of business surpasses all records. The New York Tribune in its "Money and Business" review says the tonnage of railroads, the coal carriers excepted, is larger than any previous year. Wheat at the West for three weeks of March was about 30 per cent over last year. The receipts of corn for the same period were 14,000,000 bushels this year against 0,000,000 last year. Cotton shipments have fallen off about 100,000 hales, but shipments of cattle and provisions have been remarkably large. The same authority says the foreign trade is maintained in a -volume never surpassed. The exports for February were $70,5n0,000 against 800,000,000 last year. The returns for eight mouths of the present fiscal year show...

A NOVEL EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890

A NOVEL EXHIBITION. Indianapolis has invited all the leading street-paving companies of the country to meet in that city aud give a practical example of their work. Invitations have also been extended to four hundred cities to send representatives to take note of the proceedings. Addresses on street-paving will be read by men who have especial knowledge of the subject. There is a fortune awaiting the man who invents a kind of pavement which combines durability and comfort within a limit of cost that renders it practicable. Most American cities have tried various kinds of pavement, in" we do not know of one that has found anything softer than stone which was not either too soft, too brittle, or otherwise imperfect. The trouble about an exhibition of the various kinds of pavements is that another exhibition would have to be held five years hence to judge of results. The poultice pavement looks nice when it is first laid ; wooden pavements serve a very good purpose until rain conies. T...

ItISKH. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890

ItISKH. Is another column a correspondent reviews Henry George's review of Professor Huxley's article on capital and labor. We do not undertake to give space for the repetition of all Mr. George's vagaries, but the argument of our correspondent is interesting in itself. It is easily demonstrated that labor is not paid in all cases out of Its own earnings. Capital takes certain risks. Sometimes it throws itself into a useless bole in the ground, and again the Investment of one dollar brings the investor ten dollars. We do not need such examples as the St. Gothard Tunnel or the Panama Canal. Our daily experience is sufficient. A wheatgrower one year fails to get for his crop the amount he has paid for wages. A newspaper that returns a profit to the proprietor pays labor out of the proceeds of the business, but one which runs behind pays labor out of the capital of the proprietor. But by making a general average of all business enterprises the fact that capital is rapidly accumulating ...

EUilOltlrlL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890

EUilOltlrlL NOTES. While we do not expect to engage in war it is well in time of peace to prepare. This is evidently the conclusion reached by the House Committee on Railways and Canals, for it has decided to report favorably on the bill to provide for the construction of a canal twenty-three miles long around Niagara Falls. It is urged that this is a war measure, as the only way around these falls is through the Wetland Canal, which iv the event of war would be closed against the United States. __ The Italian Chamber of Commerce of this city will soon take steps to present at tho exhibition to be held in Genoa in 1892, in honor of the fourth centenary anniversary of the discovery of America by Columbus, samples of all the products of this State, with a view of showing the people of the Old World the great advantages of California. A committee will soon be appointed to take charge of exhibits from this part of the Union. United States Senator Squire,, representing the State of Washi...
