The free admission of for­ eign cmnmodilies, or llmr admission al rates o f duty which are levied for purely revenue purposes, may suit the economic conditions and meet the financial needs of other countries, but history leaches Unit the prosjicrity o f our oion country is best promoted by a Tarifi' which is levied for Frotection as locll as for revenue. Many of our great industries, including the silk industry, the pottery industry, the carpet industry and the steel-rail industry, had only a nominal existence until adequately Frotcctive duties lucre imposed on competing foreign products. All other consideratioiis aside, older manufacliiring countries cmii I to m i l lower wages for labor than this cminlry, and Frolcclive duties were therefore needed to equalize the labor cost of pro­ duction. Our tin-plate industry is to­ day an infant industry because we have not had a Frotcctive duty on foreign tin plates. IVe shall always need Protective duties as long as our people insist upon a higher standard o f wages and scale of living than prevail abroad. I f they were now willing lo accept the same wages and Ihc same social conditions which the people of 11 c i nb c are compelled lo accept our Frotective policy could be greatly modified, i f not wholly disqjcnsed xuith. Whatever it may have betn in the qiost, this policy is therefore to-day chiejly a question of tvages. American Economist. T vitioid fever is raging in Morgan­ town, W. Va.

Tlie discovery last Aveek of tons of poisoned grapes has created a panic in the fru it trade as tlie public are now afraid to eat gr.ipes w h etiicr poisoned or not.

The claim that the solution is not poisonous, it lias been used in France for fifteen years and aatis recommended in tliis country by tlie Department of Agricul­ ture. The chemists of the Board of Hcaltli, however, are of the opinion that the solution, as applied to some of the grapes, is injurious to health and to 1 ife.
