TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 1888 JOHN STREETER, E ditor . .4 SOME WARNING FIGURES. Samuel R. -Miller is iLe Remoerat ap ­ pointed by Mr. Cleveland to be consul at ieipsic, in Germany, and be has all the in ­ clinations of this administration towards free trade. A statement which be makes is published in the reports of the state de ­ partment for January, just from the press. It relates to the wages of female labor throughout Germany in the manufacture of ready made clothing, and is based on an official report of the imperial government. The figures are given in marks, and pfen ­ nigs, which we we translate into the equiv ­ alents in cents. In Berlin, cloak makers are paid from f2 to $2,25 a week, beginners and the less skillful hands from $1 to $1.25. The mak ­ ers of underclothing receive from $1.75 to , $3.75 a week. The last rale is only paid to the most skillful seamstresses. For mak ­ ing a dozen collars the price is from 12% to 24% cents, and for a dozen cuffs from 15 to 27% cents. For a dozen shirts, the fronts, collars and cuffs already sewed, 87% cents to $1.62%. The seamstresses have to supply their own thread and sun ­ dries, at a cost of about 25 cents a week. In Posen, the daily wages vary from 12% to 15 cents for eleven or ten hours work. The average wages for a person steadily employed at. piece work is from $3 to $8.75 a week. This statement applies fairly to rnany districts. Dusseldorf,. Reuss and some other places, the earnings are some times from 62% cents to $1 a day, but the average is stated at 37% cents. In Bavaria the average weekly wages for this class of ' female labor is $2.25 a week. ' la Berlin the daily cost of living of seam ­ stresses is reported : For bed and break- fast, 5 cents; bread and butter for lunch, 4 cents; dinner 6 cents ; bread and butter in the afternoon,' 4 cents; supper, 5 cents; •beer, 5 cents — in all 29 cents. Consul 'Mill er says : ‘ In point of fact, this is what •happens. From Posen it is curtly reported that potatoes form the principal food of the workers. In Breslau a large number eat mo dinner, hut have some warm food with their supper ; in the summer they live dur ­ ing the week on bread and herrings or sausages, and only eat a decent meal on Sundays. A still more striking case re ­ ported from the Dusseldorf-Elberfield dis ­ trict is that of a married woman with two children who, in sixteen months, earned $104. 75. Materials and repairs to her ma ­ chine cost in the same period $6.75, leaving a net income of $98. Rent for her two rooms for the same period came to $68. The reporter very truly remarks that with ­ out .the assistance of-well-to-do relatives the woman could not have existed. ” To save American working women from such wages and such a condition, a duty is levied on the articles so produced of 60 per cent. The Mills tariff bill proposes to cut - this down by one third, as if to notify even the seamstresses of this country that they must submit to a reduction of one-third in their wages. The proposition comes close iome m many families in this county. The Mobile Begirter, Dem., reminds its free trade cotemporaries that they will not fin d the protectionists of Alabama to be all newcomers who are operators in mines and factories, and adds: “ They will find them in land owners who have mineral lands to sell or work, and . they must remember tkat these mineral lands permeate one- third of the state. They will find them among merchants who deal with-the land owners and the operatives, the school master who teaches school among them, the physician who doctors them and the lawyer who looks to them for clients and for votes. They will find them among the railroad employes, the station agents, the truck growers, the sawmill men and small farmers who look to the villages and towns for markets. They will find them every ­ where, all mutually dependent and believ ­ ing in home trade. ” H enry B ergh , the founder and presi ­ dent of the society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, died at New York iast week. Mr. Bergh was born in New York in 1823 and was educated at Columbia col- legel In 1853 he was secretary of legation to Russia and afterward vice consul there. He was an author of considerable ability hut is more widely known for his connec ­ tion with the above society. He began his reform work alone and in the face of much opposition and ridicule. The parent society was founded in 1886. There are ; now branch societies in twenty-five states and territories of Canada. T ke amiable editress of the Union Signal (Woman's Christian Temperance Union organ) says: “ 'Neal ; Dow is defeated as mayor of Portland, It was a straight-out fight between law and order and Repub ­ licanism. ” It is amazing to see in such a paper so gross a misunderstanding of the facts. The Republican candidate was the candidate of law and order. Neal Dow ’ s vote was to a great extent, if not almost entirely, cast, by the rum Democracy, not to help Dow \or the prohibitionists, but oat of mere characteristic cussedness.— Chic-ago Journal. T here is no escape from the fact that protection has loomed up as the over ­ shadowing issue of the campaign. The Democratic party cannot avoid it, and upon this issue the battle must be fought oat in every doubtful slate, ‘ HE FEARS HIGH LICENSE. Satan is at his old tricks! ., Governor Hill : has suddenly become in ­ terested in excise legislation. His annual message did not contain ; a word oh the subject. The most important of distinc- tively state questions, which is agitating the people of every state in the Union, escapes the gubernatorial notice. His chief occupation of last winter — vetoing temper ­ ance measures — had left no impression on the governor ’ s memory. He had forgotten how he deprived New York city and Brooklyn of - an excise system that would have regmated the liquor traffic and yielded abundant revenue to the relief of over-burdened real estate; how he deprived the treasury of the state of over $3,000,000, which would have been derived from the taxation of the liquor traffic; how he fought to retain a gin mill in the capitol building and in the Soldiers ’ Home at Bath. , Indeed the review of a little history, which is by no means ancient, will recall the popular and well founded opinion, which still prevails, that David B. Hill has during his term as governor been a stead ­ fast friend of the liquor power and opposed to every effort to curtail its evils or compel it to bear a reasonable share of taxation. He has played the role of an obstructionist to all temperance legislation. He has always been ready to pick flaws in every temperance plan, never to suggest improve ­ ments, He has never by word or deed in ­ dicated his belief that the liquor evil should be regulated and restricted by legis ­ lation. “ We have one friend left, ” was the remark of a representative of the liquor interests last year while they were endeavoring to escape regulation and taxa ­ tion; and that man told the truth. On Friday David B. Hill sent a commu ­ nication to the legislature favoring the for ­ mation of a commission to prepare a re ­ vised excise law which would do away with the antiquated statute of 1857 and the various diversified additions which have since been made. What does this mean? Shall it be taken as an indication that Satan has been reformed and become converted to a shining apostle of temper ­ ance? That doubtless will be the first im ­ pression in many minds. But the governor ’ s communication, as well as his antecedents, are against any such view of the case. He says, “ it has been proposed that a commission should be constituted to report a revised excise law to the legislature of 1889. This propo ­ sition meets with my approval. ” How modest a proposition ! In the meantime, of course, the Crosby high license bill shall be held in abeyance. The legislature shall suspend action and await the judgment of the commission. No, Satan has not been converted from dark to light. He is shamming and at the same time plotting evil. High license is no experiment. It has been adopted in.many northern states with remarkable rapidity. It has never been repealed when once adopted. The Crosby bill would make an excellent excise sys ­ tem for this state. The idea of a commis ­ sion should have occurred ' to Governor Hill last year. He has waited a year too long . — Albany Express. A TOWN IS WHAT ITS CITIZENS MAKE IT. It is a well established principle that the people make the place, not the facilities for business. It is true that an energetic and prosperous people may be kept back by a lack of natural advantages, but this is not always the case. A thousand towns are kept in check by the greed and lack of public spirit of the people, where one is kept down by the location. Push and energy overcome all obstacles, greed and want of energy will kill the most'promis- ing locality. So a village is just what its citizens make it. If the land owners hold their lots so high that the manufacturers are kept out, this will act as a weight to keep it down. If the citizens prefer to patronize mer ­ chants and mechanics of other places, that helps to keep the town down. What is wanted for the place is to be united as far as public good is concerned, patronize each other as far as possible, also new enter ­ prises; foster especially manufactures; give a warm greeting to a new settler; so far as may be do everything that shall tend to the public good. If this p&licy is pursued a village will rapidly grow and become a thriffy and prosperous town. If, on the contrary, the people refuse to aid every enterprise, unless they are to have a slice of the profit, look upon every new arrival as a pigeon to be plucked, and pat ­ ronize their neighbors only when they can ­ not do as well or better somewhere else, then a place will grow slowly if any at all, its natural advantages will go to waste and count for nothing in the question of . pros ­ perity. — Exchange. •*. WHY HE (QUIT THE PARTY- PROHIBITION . James.A. Bradley, ex-Mayor of Asbury Park, N. Y., is a politician and inanufac- facturer. Several years ago be became an ardent prohibitionist, but now he is a Republican, and doing all he can for the party. He came back to the Republican party for two reasons;: Because he thought it handled the the temperance question cor ­ rectly and represented the great American idea of protection. '■ “ If I were going to make a campaign speech on the tariff question, ” he said dur- iag an interview with a .newspaper man last Saturday, ‘ T would open it bj'saying that I bad on a suit of clothes made in London that cost me only $12. I would go on to tell how it was made by cheap labor, and bow the tailor received Tittle pay, and show the general starvation that its cheap manufacture and make up. entailed. Then I would show that the same suit of clothes cost in Nev/ York $35, and point out the prosperous workmen wbd are engaged in manufacturing and making clothes here. I think I should convert some voters to protection. ” * “ You manufacture brushes, do you not ? ” “ Yes, but not hair brushes. The latter industry has been ruined by the reduction of the tariff. The tariff was thirty-five per cent., and that somewhat protected hair brush manufacturers. Now the tariff is only twenty-five per cent., and the result is foreign competition has driven our home manufacturers to the wall. Another in ­ dustry pretty much in the same line that has been greatly crippled is the manufact ­ ure of fancy articles, such as nail brushes and articles of that kind. The tariff is so low that our manufacturers cannot com ­ pete with foreign markets. ” “ Do you like the way the Republican party is dealing with the liquor question ? ” “ Yes, and that is the reason I quit the prohibition party. When the Republicans of New Jersey made a pledge that they would advocate high license and local option I waited, and when I found they were in earnest I became a Republican again. It is impossible for a people at once to be educated to the idea of prohibi ­ tion. I believe in prohibition, but I see we cannot come to it at once. The Republican party is trying to solve the question and give us the most practical solution — high license. In New York the attempt to pass the Crosby high license bill has had and will have a great effect upon the temper ­ ance men. It shows that the Republican party is in earnest, and is trying to deal with the question honestly. A good many prohibitionists in New Jersey are joining the Republican party. ” “ Have you any preference for Presi ­ dential candidates ? ” “ I do not know that I have. Mr. Blaine ’ s answer to President Cleveland ’ s message struck the keynote in one particu ­ lar. He said take the tax off tobacco be ­ cause it was a necessity (I hardly think so, but perhaps it is to some), and keep it on whiskey because it was destructive. Now, was not that a clear and unmistakable utterance ? ” O ur Kingston contemporary, The Fi'ce- man, asserts that David Hill “ is all stirred up by the message of condolence which President Cleveland sent to the widow of Tom Carroll, a ward politician of New York, the other day. The Governor will soon have a list of all the recent Demo ­ cratic widows in the state sent in by the postmasters, and if letters of condolence will not suffice he will forward proposals. It is ‘ war to the knife and the knife to the hilt ’ between Cleveland and Hill now, with the advantages strongly on the side of the latter m the widow campaign. T ee - New York Republican assembly- men have it in their power to give strength to their party m the state by voting for high license, if the Crosby bill should fail it would have the effect of throwing hum dreds and thousands of earnest temperance voters, who want to support the Republi ­ can ticket, into the ranks of the prohibi ­ tionists. Not only this, but the saloon in New York state is already the uncompro ­ mising enemy of Republicanism. Nothing can be lost by new temperance legislation. Much can be gained. It will be the very height of folly if the Republican assembly- men fail to take advantage of their oppor- tunity . — ■Boston Journal. CURRENT. COMMENT. — If it takes twenty judges and six death sentences to hang a man in the State of New York, the life insurance companies may as well begin to turn an honest penny on murderer risks . — Louisville Courier- Journal. — The statement that General Hawley has a $10,000 violin might afford Governor Kill some consolation in contemplating his $800 piano if General Hawley had not been so wanton and reckless as to pay for his musical instruments out of his own private funds. — Pittsburg Dispatch. — The one day in the year nearer and | dearer to the old soldier heart is the day whieh'jby national statute is made a legal holiday, the 30th of May — Memorial day- on which they assemble in every town, and village throughout the country and march to the various burial places to strew flowers upon the graves of the immortal dead. Until a Democratic president came in this day was properly observed by the executive in taking part in these exercises.. It was left for a Democratic president to show his contempt, for the honors paid the loyal dead on that day by packing his fishing outfit and taking to the woods, as it was left him to interpose his vetoes to private pension bills couched in language as terse and offensive as the vigor of speech could make them . — New York Press. CHATHAM CENTRE. E. A. Shaver of Pittsfield, made a short call on his old friends here last week Fri ­ day and Saturday. Harry Hill has treated his girls to a new Estey organ. He purchased it of duett & Sons, of Albauy. Some of our villagers who live near the depot went out with the shoveling gang of the B. & A. railroad, Friday. ... - 1 Miss Fannie Lant, who has been very sick with the measles, is very much, better and is said to be out of danger. P. D. Reed was among the snow-bound people. He was on Conductor Osborn ’ s train and laid at Mellenville from Monday - until Thursday afternoon.' Thomas J. Rider was the first to get to Chatham with a team from this part of the country after the storm. He worked his way through Saturday morning. Although the roads are in very bad shape ■ it is to be hoped that all will try to get out to the lecture to night to greet the Rev. J. H. Lane and enjoy his “ Artichokes ” in the M. E. Church. Assistant Section-master Lester Boice is suffering very much with inflammation of the eyes. He was obliged to be out in the snow so much during the blockade that his eyes became very weak, terminating in the above sad result. If we do not have another blizzard, the Ladies Aid Society will hold its next meet ­ ing at J. N. Stickles ’ on Thursday evening. Owing to the storm no meeting was held last week. A few friends cf Nicholas White and wife assembled at their house Saturday af ­ ternoon to participate in the celebration of Mr. White ’ s 76 birthday. The old gentle ­ man enjoyed the affair very much, it being a complete surprise to him. Edith Van Alstyne surprised her people by inviting several little girls to attend the 9th anniversary of her birthday last Satur ­ day. Mrs. Van Alstyne proved equal to the occasion and the little ones had a real nice time. The mail service in our neighboring vil ­ lages of Old Chatham and Malden Bridge seems to be in a very bad shape. They neither received nor sent any mail last week until Friday, when James Redmond and George Bradley attempted to drive to Chatham from Old Chatham after their mail, but on reaching this place they were compelled to give it up as they could not get through on either road. Mr. Redmond took the train from here and succeeded in getting back about 7 o ’ clock with the mail when they immediately started for home. James Becker of Malden Bringe came this way Saturday going to Chatham b3 r rail after the mails. The oldest inhabitants cannot remember a storm equal ’ to the one of last week. Large drifts of snow, some of them over 15 feet high were seen on all sides of us Tuesday morning and the village wore a dreary and desolate look. Every one was trying to shovel themselves out and it was nearly ten o ’ clock before Andrew Van Al ­ styne succeeded in getting from his house to the store, a distance of about 150 feet. Jas. G. Yan Valkenburgh was completely snowed in. There was no door in his house that he could get out.of, and his horses would have been without feed for some time had it not been for his neighbor, Mr. McNamara, who shoveled a path to one of Mr. Yan ’ s doo rs. By a good deal of dig ­ ging and the use of three yoke of oxen the village beat was open the whole length by Thursday evening. The roads to the depot and to Haner ’ s paper mill were also open. In many places outside the village teams have to go through the lots. T ee Dutchess board of supervisors con ­ sists of 26 members, of whom 21 are “ colls. ” The few “ old horses ” will be likely to have a “ circus ” on their hands next fall, we imagine. NORTH CHATHAM. Ettie Simmons is gaining from her late sickness. Tunis Miller has launched out in the clover seed business. George Self, at C. Buell ’ s, was one of the snow bound visitors. There was no school last week on account of the snow blockade. Loomis Sornberger has rented Mrs. P. A. Gildersleeve ’ s premises. George Crosby and wife, of Coxsackie, lately visited at Paul Sheppe ’ s. Miss Tabitha Morris, of Hudson, has been visiting for a week at J. H. Miller ’ s. W. L. Kayes, who was injured by a fall on the ice, is able to be about with a cane. Oscar and Frank Miller will work Capt. Witbeck ’ s farm near the Brick school house. Dr. Kunker had to wade through the deep snow last week ’ to attend his sick patients. Allen Bell and James Ostrander have purchased the Ostrander farm, east of Schodack'Depot. Both of our stores have added large coffee mills to their fixtures and grists of coffee are being ground. Miss Witbeck, of Castleton, has been viewing the mountains of snow from Andrew Harder ’ s residence. Milo Kingman, of Rondout, visiting his parents, intending to return a week ago, j has since been fascinated by the snow j blockade. ! Two loads of smart spellers \from this ! place lately attended the spelling school at | the “ Yellow ” school house,' which is said | to be painted white. ; Jennie Boughton has been sick for over ! a week with a cold and fever. — Mary Niles j has also been battling with a severe cold. — j Mrs. B. B. Nichols is slowly improving j from a fever. j Mr. and Mrs. B. Nichols intending to ; return from a visit last week Monday, were ; so attracted by the lovely snow that they | spent the week viewing its pyramids from ] a city standpoint. | We were shut in from the outside world j last week by “ beautiful ” show from 3 to 25 i feet deep and had no mail until Thursday ! night, and then only a part of what be- | longed to us, as the mail had to he toted on ! the carrier ’ s back. SEVERELY BURNED. Last Tuesday night the gas pipes in the store of J. M. Rivenburgb, of Hudson, leaked so that the odor was almost over ­ powering. The head clerk, James Mul- doon, who is also first assistant engineer of the Hudson fire department, went into the cellar to investigate. He lighted a match. An explosion followed that shook the build ­ ing and foundation walls. Mr. Muldoon was knocked down and sustained burns of a serious character about the face and eyes, although his eyesight will not be materially impaired. MALDEN BRIDGE. . CLAVERACK. For the first time in forty years the turnpike was completely shut. Robert Hood ’ s lecture has been post ­ poned until next Friday evening. - Glaveraek ’ s visiting list is semewnat shortened by the effects of the storm. Wm. H. Smith has his mustang hack again. Billy smiles ail over his face at his luck. M. L. White has started an opposition to the Hoosick tunnel right m front of his house. Little Mabel Esselstyne has been quite sick. She is, however, very much im ­ proved at present. Benjamin Saundcrson was in Mellen- ville when the storm struck that village, and he stayed there until he could get back. Louis A. Bristol and wife left here on Saturday last for New York, where they will spend a few days with relatives of Mrs. Bristol. District No. 3 is. closed indefinitely on account of bad roads. It will probably, open about the second week m April. Dis- ’ trict No. 5 ran along without a break. Tommy Mansfield ’ s hostler wants to look a leetle oudt when he bucks snow drifts on horseback. There may he a hard bottom to that soft downy-looking heap of snow. W. F. Pierce, teacher of District No. 1, was on the train which was stalled below Pulver ’ s on Monday. He took a week ’ s vacation involuntarily, without either con ­ sulting himself or the trustee. We are sorry to have to note the serious illness of Ann B. Hill, who for the past ten days has been confined to her bed with a severe attack of pneumonia. We are very happy to state, however, that she is at present out of danger. No matter what happens some old timer has a parallel case somewhat larger than the truth to tell, but this last storm bothers our local story tellers. In fact they have been so completely shut up that they could not even get out to give voice to their yarns. The funeral of Mrs. Andrew. M. Pierce was held on Friday afternoon from the Reformed church. Mrs. Pierce was one of the old Livingston stock, being a sister of the late Edward Livingston and a daughter of old Robert Leroy Livingston. She had been an invalid for some time and her death was not unexpected. SPENCERTOWN. Coughs and colds are very prevalent. Henry W. Niles is under the doctor ’ s care. Mrs. Thomas Slocum is under the doc ­ tor ’ s care. Dan W . Rundell is suffering from inflam ­ mation of the eyes. The fair and supper to have been held in Clark's hall is postponed until further no ­ tice. Messrs. Charles Chase and Malvin Clark have engaged to work Abner Higgins ’ s farm on shares for the coming year. Harvey Howes, a son of Russell Howes, has been very dangerously ill from lock ­ jaw resulting from an injury to his foot. The official board of trustees'and stew ­ ards of the M. E. church will meet in the basement of the church, Friday evening next, to transact important business. Our sixt3 r -hour snow storm was product ­ ive of considerable suffering as well as dis ­ comfort. Frozen ears and frost bitten feet and faces are reported, a ’ s 5 brave struggles for life in the storm and deep snow. Even the poor birds were in great extremity and numbers have been found dead. A dog supposed to have been lost in the storm dug his way out from under a stoop where he had been imprisoned for three days by a big drift. Farmers in several instances . reached stock in their barns only by climb ­ ing. through upper windows and doors. Citizens evidently on business came into town by rail (fences) and one on barrel, stave snow shoes. Observations made in sheltered places determine the fall of snow to have been 3% feet. N1VERV1LLE. ' Wm. Cornelius has returned home. Mrs. Bartlett is visiting her daughter in Troy. Mrs. Allen of Salem, N. Y.,'is the guest of Mrs. E. O. Van Sjyck. Dr. Mesick expects to occupy the house of the late David Hobbs. There will be preaching in the M. E. church Sunday night commencing at 7 o ’ clock. Mr. E. O. Yan. Slyck met with an acci ­ dent while shoveling snow Thursday. He was hit with a shovel and had his head quite badly cut. Girls, when 3-011 go to church Sunday nights, be sure and reach home before a storm overtakes you, otherwise you may have to board out\for a week. ■ The lecture was postponed last week on account of the storm.

The Ladies ’ Aid society will hold a so ­ ciable on Thursdaj 1 evening of this week at the house of Mr. James Haughwout. A cordial invitation is extended to all. The blinding storm which prevailed last week was the worst ever experienced in this vicinity. Everybody was completely snowed in. Many of our farmers were un ­ able to reach their barns to attend to their stock in 24 hours and in some cases longer. No mail was received during the week un ­ til Friday. 4NCRAM.
