are out of work at Amsterdam. The tariff is to be lowered, they
say, and knit good will come in from Chemnitz, Germany, cheap-
er than we can make them here. They work for $3 a week in
Chemnitz, and we used to get $12 in Amsterdam:"
"Do you think our old 50 per cent tariff increased your
wages?" I asked.
"Why, yes. We get 400 per cent, more wages in Amsterdam
than we do in Germany. How else could we have got it?"
"But, they say, Rigdon, that wages depend upon demand and
supply," I said.
"Yes, but what demand would there be for knit shirts made
at $2 a day when you could import them from Germany made
by 30-cent labor? The tariff keeps that cheap labor out."
"Then what will be the effects in Amsterdam if the Wilson bill
lowers the tariff 25 per cent, on knit goods?"
"Our wages will have to go down 100 per cent.," said John.
"We boys will have to stand the cut or the factory will stop. If
50 per cent, tariff gives four times the wages paid in Germany,
why a 25 per cent tariff will make our wages twice as much as
they are in Germany, or about 60 cents a day. We boys all see
it now."—[American Economist.

john Rigdon was always a clean, shrewd, temperate, industri-
ous man. When he came up and received a loaf of bread, as it
was being distributed by the World charity, I was surprised.
"John," I said, "you here! How is this?"
"It is not my fault;" said Rigdon. "Fifteen hundred of us
