':■: .',.".,.■ • AHUIHiilt VIEW. "A few days since The Call published an ,s extract -from . the Toronto Globe, in which the j most disastrous consequences to Canadian agricultural industries were anticipated should the McKinley Tariff Hill be--j. come a law. The Globe said the Canadian farmers would o be compelled to accept 15 per cent lower prices Tor their products, in order to sell in the United States markets. On this side : : of the line there is a general disposition to regard the increase of duties in farm products as an empty concession to .the agricultural interests. ° The St. Paul PiDyeer Press, for example, says that the "empty increase of duties on agricultural products Is as ineffectual as the bull against the comet*' The St. Paul journal and the I Gitipe should compatenotes. If the increase s of duties on agricultural products is as empty as the St. Paul editor seems to think, it cannot injure the Canadian farmer as much -as the Globe editor thinks it will. If no Canad...

THE "ROCK Or ITS SALVATIOX." [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
THE "ROCK Or ITS SALVATIOX." When the London Iron and Coal Trade Review heard that -C.,000 tons of American steel had been sold to a Mexican railway company it was moved to say: _Ss__jj_ Protection, which, it was thought, would only linhede the progress of tie- Anerteao iron industry, has Droved to be the very "rock of its salvation." And much as we may regret ibe result lor our own sake the American people, it must be admitted, have shown a much keener appro- elation ol what was essential to their progress than our own doctrinaires would bo willing to admit. It has always been a question whether the English objection to a protective policy for the United States was made in good faith. The American idea is that they had the good of England in view rather than that oi tha United States. English statesmen naturally desired to keep the iron industry in their own country and to let Americans pay for English iron, In grain and cotton. A dollar's worth of raw mate- rials would be converte...
TRADE WITH SOUTH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
TRADE WITH SOUTH AMERICA. Chile Imported in the year 1888 goods to the amount of $00,717,008, being a gain of more than 812,000,000 in the imports of the preceding year. Of these imports $26,000,- 000 came from Great Britain, $14,000,000 from Germany, 80,000,000 from - France, $4,000,000 from the Argentine P„public, $3,000,000 lrom the United . States and 83,000,000 from Peru. The Boston Globe refers to this table as a disgrace to the United States. Toe disgrace lies, we suppose, in tho fact that the United States does not got a larger share of this trade. And yet, taking South America as a whole, the United States admits 8754 Per cent of its imports from these countries free of duty. It places an import duty on 12*4 per cent The annual value of hides imported is about $2".,000,000. and of coffee §75,000,000. Both these products are admitted free. But the placing of a duty on 12 '/J per cent of South American products is retarded as an illiberal policy, which prevents the growth of ...
MINOR DIPKEKENCES. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
MINOR DIPKEKENCES. •• A Democratic contemporary is amused at the fact that there are differences of opinion among Republican journals as to the provisions of the Ways and Means Tariff Bill.: These differences of opinion are not incon- * sistent with a hearty support of the principle upon which the bill is founded. That principle |is the imposition of duties on foreign products which come in competition with .the products of this country. . Tlio differences are as to tbe products that should be taxed.; The Portland Oreaonian would J keep ; the duties ,' on : wool ami impose duties on bides, but take the duty off Sugar. 1 The Call "would give the sugar Industry. _ . chance to • develop ander the j new and. mare favorable conditions which now .surround it.

– BABBISON AX!) CLEVELAND. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
- BABBISON AX!) CLEVELAND. I A friend of the present administration is confident that Harrison is planning for renomination in 1892. In view of the fact that every ether man who has been mentioned by too partial friends is a possible candidate tor the Presidency, it would be strange if Mr. Harrison did not entertain hopes of succeeding himself. The desire to be President the second time is as absorbing as the desire to be President at all. It carried Mr. Cleveland off his feet in the middle of his term, though he was distinctly pledged to one term. There is a fascination about this office which men who are far away from it do not appreciate at its full force. When we see men who have everything which fortune can give them ex- cept that ready to throw everything away, for that, we are forced to the conclusion that in this particular case it is nearness not distance that lends enchantment to the view. Mr. Cleveland, who knows what a thankless office the Presidency is, is anxious for a...
THE I'OiaUGUBSK BOYCOTT. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
THE I'OiaUGUBSK BOYCOTT. Tariff wars aro generally expensive; but sometimes they are amusing as well, The latest war of the kind is the one which the little Kingdom of Portugal is waging against England in retaliation for the oc- cupation by the British of the Shire country in Africa which Portugal -claims.' The Portuguese propose to get even with their big enemy by cutting off his supplies of Everybody knows that the port wine of to-gay It a blended wine, which is doctored to suit the British taste in the great warehouses on the London Docks. Its basis is the genuine wine grown on the Upper Douro, some fifty miles from Oporto. Oi' this," England takes about 4.000,00 gallons a year, worth at the point of shipment something over §1 a gallon. On arrival in London this wine is blended with ot.liei wines, strengthened with brandy, flavored with burnt sugar, nnd then left to age in pipes. We are to assume -now that this supply is cut off. 'So immediate inconvenience would follow, as the....
OBDIKBO : OCT. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
OBDIKBO : OCT. Stephen Zarro, an American, citizen of Austrian birth, '. was ordered to leave his native country on three days' notice. Mr. Zarro was not conscious of having done anything to provoke ; this order.., lie was called to the old country by the death of his father and remained for some weeks at the request of his mother.; When' the order came for him to go he found that the fact of his being an American by adoption did not afford him any protection. The offense of Mr. Zarro doubtless lies in the fact that, like most old-country men who become citizens of the United States and afterward return to the land of their birth, he compared the condition -of the masses of the people in the two countries. None of the European despotisms can bear such comparisons. It is humiliating to Americans that citizenship should afford so little protection, and it is possible that the case of Sir. Zarro will afford the State Department an opportunity to lay down some fundamental principles of ...
THE KNOhISH COAL, STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
THE KNOhISH COAL, STRIKE. It is said that the recent coal strike in England involved about -PiO.GOOcoal-miiiers, most of whom belonged to the Miners' Federation, which conducted the strike. The Coal-miners, who have been the poorest paid laborers in England, took advantage of a rise in coal to demand an increase in wages. The colliery-owners answered that for ten years their dividends had not exceeded Sl&gt; on the £500 share, and that it was in their opinion time for them to be making a little money. The • strike was partially successful, the colliery-owners agreeing to pay a part of the advance demanded and a part in six mouths. The effect of this settlement will be to continue the increased cost of manufacturing in Great Britain. Cheap coal, cheap labor and cheap capital have been England's great points of advantage over the United States in the various manufactures, In the production of cotton goods, the raw material for which is largely purchased In this country, Americ...
WOMEN IN KANSAS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
WOMEN IN KANSAS. Elections were held Tuesday in a large number of cities and towns in Kansas' in which women toDk part. In one town women had charge of the election machinery, and are believed to have held their own. At Emporia the women took an interest in the election of a woman candidate lor the School Board on the platform of "good salaries lor good teachers." The platform ought to win without regard to the candidate, In most other places the women took little interest in the election. There weie no issues which called them out, and they do not seem inclined to take the trouble to vote on general principles. A writer in the Forum says that " nothing shows the necessity of suffrage for women more plainly than the unwillingness of men to grant it." This apparent unwillingness is largely based upon the indifference ot the majority of women to the possession or exercise of the franchise. If four-fifths of the women in the United States would declare by vote or otherwise that they de...
INSTIIE SENATE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
INSTIIE SENATE. Congressman Morrow's Census Enumeration Bill, designed to protect Ihe United .Stales from the illegal entry of Chinese, fared badly in the Senate Committee on the Census. Three amendments are attached to the bill, either one ol which is fatal to its usefulness. The section which permits a Chinese resident who fails to obtain the required identification paper to prove by competent testimony his right to one will have about tlio same effect upon the bill that the ruling of the Federal courts— that Chinese coming without certificates might establish their claim to prior residence byoral testimony— had on the Itestriction Act. Partial legislation of this kind serves no one but lawyers. Chinese found in the country without the certificate the Enumeration Bill requires will, as a nils, find littlo difficulty iv establishing residence by testimony the prosecution will not be in a condition to refute. It is pretty much a matter of proving a negative. The House bill as amende...

I'llllDltlAl, NOTES. Senator Edmunds of the Senate Judiciary Committee has reported back the Sherman Anti-Trust Bill, with a substitute. In the recent debate in the Senate the representative of Vermont declared he was not willing to vote for a bill that would bo deceptive, and would not be coerced into doing so by newspaper outcry, by larmers' alliances or anything else. lie believed it to be better to endure the partial evil of even the most grinding monopolies than to attempt to step by ono evil over the clear boundary lino that had been established and maintained between Congress and the legislative power of the States. In fact his remarks were such as to excite considerable attention in the East, and trade organizations will be inclined to closely scrutinize any measure in which his handiwork is visible. : - •'• y For men who have made their mark in the world the Senators of the United States are not very bright examples of punctuality. When the Senate convened yesterday there w...
