An Urgent Appeal for Its Immediate Be-
Chicago, 111., June 26.—The following tele-
gram was sent to Cleveland to.day signed by
forty-eight leading business houses of Chi-
cago. It is understood that sovoral others
sent private telegrams of a similar import:
To Grovor Cleveland, President: Believing
the Sherman silver bill one of the most im-
portant factors in contributing to the present
depressed condition of the national finances,
it is our earnest request that the matter
be discussed at the cabinet meeting
next convening. In our opinion the
immediate repeal of this law will
do more to restore confidence than any one
thing, and believing it to be a question of
national importance we beseech your favor-
It was stated this evening that prominent
merchants In Grand Rapids, Detroit, St.
Louis and St. Paul were requested to take
similar action at once.

Other Washington News.
Washington, June 26.—| Special.!— Mr.
Miles Crowley has returned from Capon
Springs whither bo went to interviow Sena-
tor Mills |in regard to tho collectorship at
Galveston. Mr. Crowley is in a good humor,
but this procoeds from a delightful tempera-
ment, rather than from anything that camo
from the interview. According to Mr. Crow-
ley, he got off the railroad at a place called
Capon junction and took a wagon for the
Springs eighteen miles away. A terrific rain
came up and nenrly drownod him. He ar-
rived at tho Springs, told Mr. Mills ho came
to see him and went to bed, having fixed an
hour next morning for the interviow. It took
place and Mr. Mills at once left for Texas
and Mr. Crowley for Washington. The re-
sult of it, according to Mr. Crowley, was that
he ran Mr. Mills out of West Virginia, but
before he left he informed Mr. Crowloy that
bo had always boon for Mr. Finlay for the
collectorship and ho intended to be for him
through thick and thin to the end.
Whatever may have been the trials of Mr.
Crowley's trip he has the satisfaction of hav-
ing ascertained exactly how Mr. Mills stands
on the collectorship at Galveston.
Mr. George P. Finlay of GalveBton, and a
candidate for the aforesaid collectorship, ar-
rived this morning and at once called on Sec-
retary Carlisle. That gentleman at the outset
informed him that tho appointment was not
in his hands, to which Finlay replied that
while this might be the case bis application
for the collectorship was in tho treasury
office, as also were protests and charges
against him. To those letters he wanted to
talk and he proceeded to do bo. Carlisle bo-
came interested and when Finlay concluded
he Baid he would like to introduce him to Mr.
Cleveland. Finlay assented to this and
Carlisle said he would to-night arraugo with
the president for a time for the meeting.
Mr. Finlay says he is much encouraged
with the outlook for him.
congressman gkesham seeing senator coke.
Waco, Tex., June 26.—Hon, Walter Gresh-
am of Galveston is in Waco. The objeot of
Mr. Gresbam's visit at this time is uuderstood
to be to reconcile Senator Coke to the ap-
pointment of L. W. Moore of Fayette county
to be colloctor of Galveston port, vice
Wright Cunoy, who is now expected to
vacate before his commission expires. Sen-
ator Coke is not believed to have encouragod
Mr. Greshain, but to have declared that his
indorsement of George Finlay would con-
tinue. Besides seeing Senator Coke Mr.
Gresham spent some time in company with
Waller S. linker.
Mr, Daggett'* Bond.
Washington, June 26.—[Special.]—The
bond of Mr. Doggett of McKinney, who was
lately appointed collector of the Fourth in-
ternal ifvenra, di^ic • . dv .a, arrivtu to-
day. It is for the sum of $50,000, but tho
names of the bondsmen are not given out,
this be in contrary to the rules of the treas-
ury. The salary of this collectorship in $2700
a year. In the year 1892 the receipts from in-
ternal revenue in thiB district were$107,609 32.
This monoy is dorived from the liquors and
tobacco. For the Third district the receipts
were $198,766 61. There was only 6354 gallons
of spirituous liquors distilled in Texas, but
there wore 115,393 barrels of beer brewed.
The income is purely from license, except for
the beer and distilled spirits above mentioned.
The receipts for the year 1893 will soon be
made up. Doggott will doubtless assume his
office on July 1.
Silver Men Alarmed.
Washington, June 26. — [Special. | — The
silver men are becoming very much
excited over the progress of the
president in winning over to his
side membors of congress in his advocacy of
the repeal of the Sherman law. It is said
that headquarters are to be established hero
by tho white metal people, from which silver
literature will be sent out and in other ways a
strong fight made. This story receives weight
from tho faot that the silver people already
have lecturers on the road. One of thein was
in Washington a week or so ago, and hired a
hall and delivered a lecture on the production
of silver and its value as a money metal. Ho
mado the lecture attractive by stereoptican
views. The silver people feel that the hour

Washington, June 26.—The market price of
Bilver to-day reached the lowest point in tho
history of that product. On Saturday the
London price, which guides the director of
the mint in the purchases of the government,
was 37K pence, or about 81.8 cents in this
country. This morning the price in London
was 36 pence, or about 78.8 cents in New York,
a drop of three points. The cause of the de-
pression assigned by Mr. Preston, acting
director of the mint, is due to a rumor, which
is probably truo, that India, one of tho largest
silver consuming countries, is about to oloso
its mints to the white metal.

The Cherokee Bonds.
Kansas City, Mo., June 26.—Treasurer E.
E. Starr and Delegate J. T. Cunningham of
the Cherokee nation have arrived in Kansas
City to confer with the directors of the Mis-
souri, Kansas and Texas trust company rela-
tive to the salo of the Cherokeo strip bonds,
which amount to $6,640,000. Starr and Cun-
ningham came from Chicago, where S. R.
WeBt, representing the Missouri, Kansas and
Texas trust company, suomitted the outline
of a proposition, which the Cherokee repre-
sentatives say they consider the most favor-
able yet offered, barring one or two details.
It was to obtain a proposition in definite form
and to bring about an elimination of objec-
tionable features that the two prominent
Cherokees came to Kansas City. They will
be here until Wednesday. The Missouri,
KansaH and Texas is said to be acting for
oastern parties whose names are not disclosed.
Christie & Jonnoy, baukorsof New York, also
bid for the bonds while the Cherokee repre-
sentatives were in Chicago.
President Arthur E. Still well of the Mis-
souri, Kansas and Texas trust company had
this say in regard to the matter: "I am sorry
tho matter is creeping into tho papers, for wo
tried to keep it secret and I can not under-
stand how it leaked out. Since it lias become
public, however, you can say we are negoti-
ating for the bonds. I will not say more now.

EDWARD ATKINSON P0INT8 OUT THE
ROAD TO FREE TRADE.
It Will Take Ten, Fifteon or Twenty Years
to Do It, bat fcuocess Is Certain—How
to Raise Government Revenues.
Boston, Mass., June 26.—Edward Atkinson
has mado publio his plan for the reform of
the tariff. The task is one to h* under-
taken, be says, as soon as the monetary ques-
tion is sottled. In dealing with the reduction
f the tariff regard must be given first to mak-
ing such adequate additions to the free list as
may do away with the present disadvantages
under which our domestic manufacturers and
meohanic arts have so long suffered in the
relative cost of their materials; and, second,
to establish such lesser rates of duty on
finished products as to increase rather than
As to the time required to bring about re-
form Mr. Atkinson says the demands upon
congress may make it necesaary to defer for
some months any great changes that might
imperil the present revenue. In the year 1895
the obligation for pensions will fall off about
one-third or one-quarter. It would therefore
bo desirablo that any great changes in tho ex-
isting system of collecting revenue should be
deferred until the last part of the year 1894 or
subsequently to the fiscal year ending June 30,
1894, for which year provision will be made at
tho ensuing session of congress, because in
that fiscal year our maximum expenditure
In the meantime, the probable excess of
revenue undor existing laws will make it safe
to abate duties on all imported crude and raw
material at a vory early date in the year 1894.
You may be assured that the present congress
may not take final action upon a well devised
and consistent tariff act before January 1,
1894. This net may put wool dye stuffs, ores,
coal and other crude or bo called "raw ma-
terials" in the free list, this change to take
effect in the early part of the year 1894.
There should then be an interval of at least
six months before the reduction of
duties on finished ooods
takes effect in order to give the consumers of
raw material an opportunity to work off exist-
ing stock without disaster. That would bring
the revenue tariff into complete effect in the
latter part of the year 1894. If congress at tho
coming extra session would empower tbe sec-
retary of the treasury to liquidate the first
payments allowed on pansfon claims by the
issue of pension notes bearing a low
rate of interest payable on the
call of the treasury, the only uncertain
element would be removed and the adjust-
ment of tho rovonue to prospective expendi-
ture could then be made in a more simple and
effective manner. This would create a merely
temporary loan subject to payment at the will
of the treasury. Such notes would correspond
with the exchequer bills which are issued by
the British treasury and to the frequent hor-
rowinys of our own cities and towns in antic-
ipation of taxes assessed but not paid in.
There is another very simple way of bridg-
ing over this interval that would givo absolute
assurance of an abundant if not a surplus
revenue. In the last fiscal year t .3 consump-
tion of beer amouutid to nearly 3H,(W0,0<A>
barrels of thirty-one gallons each, on which
the present tax is $1 a barrel, less 5 per cent
discount when the stamps are bought in large
quantities. If this discount were not given
the gain in revenue would bo about $1,500,000 a
year. But why should not the tax on beer be
doubled at once, so as to cover the last in-
crement of first payments of pensions from
June 30 to December 31, 1894, and thereafter
kept at $2 for perhaps two or three years in
order to cover the possibility of a reduction of
customs revenue in the transition period.
the tax on beer
is least costly in collection. It is safe from
evasion. It bears a very low percentage to
the cost to consumers and even at double the
present rate it would not become any appre-
ciable burden upon them. The present tax
doss not exceed 4 per cent on a half pint of
bser when retailed at 5 cents a glass, about
one-fifth of a cent a glass. If the tax were
doubled it would not exceed 8 per cent or less
than half a cent on each pint of beer. The
additional revenue would be from $30,000,000
to $35,000,000 in 1894-5 for twelve months.
Mr. Atkinson has prepared a table to show
that since specie payments were resumed in
1879 the revonue from liquors and tobacco,
domestic and imported, has increased yearly,
having averaged $2 50 per head of population
from 1879 to 1892, and now being more nor-
mal. Expenditures of the government for
the same period, aside from interest and pen-
sions, have amounted to $25 36 per head.
Internal revenue from spirits has sus-
tained the civil service, from tobacoo
the army has been sustained and the revenues
from beer have more than supported the
navy. The customs revenues from spirits,
wines and tobacco have more than covered all
the average expenditures on rivers and har-
bors and until very recently upon the con-
struction of vessels added to tho navy. Upon
this experience for fourteen years sustained
by tho figures by nine months' revenue in the
present fiscal year, a rule may be predic-
ated in the following terms:
The normal cost of government, including
average appropriations for rivers, harbors,
public works and naval construction is dimin-
ishing per head. The revenues from
liquors and tobacco are increasing
per head. Those specific sources of
revenue may therefore be set apart for the
purpose of meeting all normal expenditures.
The miscellaneous permanent reooipts are now
about equal to tho interest on tbe public debt.
These two sources of revenue combined will
this year cover all the regular ordinary expend-
itures and the interest on the public debt with
an excess which will be nearly if not quite
equal to the contract obligations for the con-
struction of naval vessols, publio improve-
ments and for making tho large guns whicb
were entered into by the previous congress,
but which mnture in this and tho ne»t fiscal
years. The bounty on sugar may cause a
small deficiency for the present year only.
II A REFORMED TARIFF
measure should be framed with a view to
yielding in its first year $150,000,000 from im-
ports other than liquors and tobacco it wou.J
probably yield a sufficient excess to aover tn.
small remainder of first payments in cash.) t
it would be safer to make temporary proi »
ion for this. Thereafter the increasing «t
cess of revenue would yield so largo a surp i
over tho diminishing pension roll as to cntr -
the treasury to pay or purchase all outata
ing bonds bearing interest and to meet any
loss that may occur upon the disposal of * .
ver bullion within tho next ten years. The
objective point of practically free trade is,
therefore, within view of ten to twenty y«ar.
in which interval our bonded debt will all
havo been paid.
If tho tax on beer wore increased from two-
tenths to four-tenths of a cent per half pint
glass, yielding $30,000,000 to $35,000,000, that
substitution would make it feasible to put
about one-half of all tho articles named in tho
present tariff into tho free list, but such a rad-
ical change is not contemplated.
In this analysis the present purpose Is to
mako a beginning upon so sound and sure a
..basis as to secure the active support or tacit
assent of reasonablo men of both political par-
ties, to the end that the greatest benefit may
ba secured to the greatest number with the
least injury to thoso who have beon plaood in
their present condition against their own will.
Upon an analysis of the imports and rev-
enue of the fiscal year ending June' 30, 1892,

articles wore valued and subject to duty as
follows: Value of imports, $17,921,34291;
revonue, $5,008,845 21. As those imports wore
mainly from Canada it would perhaps be
judicious to set them apart to bo doalt with
under a treaty of reciprocity and not to com-
plicate the reform of the tariff by treating
them at present.
Under class B, crude materials, the follow,
imports were mado on which duties imposed
must be removod in any true tariff reform:
Wool, ores, scrap iron, coal, flax, stone, wood,
bristles and a fow other petty articles. Valuo,
$38,080.133 30; revenue, $12,783,217 25.
Under class C, materials partly manufac-
tured, the following articlos and duties to be
dealt with in any measure of tariff reform are
found: Chemicals, drugs and dyes (omitting
opium) and with few eicoptlons small in
value, petty in revonue, complex and costly in
administration, also lumber, pamts and col-
ors, oils and a few other potty articles. Valuo,
$30,579,800 03; revenue, $6,226,625 93.
Under class D, manufactured goods, there is
as yet little opportunity for an lncreaso in the
freo list, but there must be an adjustment of
rates with a view to revonue. Some kinds of
lumber, books, photographs and aconsiderable
number of petty articles on which the revenuo
does not psy the cost of collection may be
added to the freo list, yalue, $4,242,441 02;
revenue, $2,332,438 18.
Under class K articles of voluntary use or
luxuries may at preseut be put into the free
list only to the extent of art work and potty
articles that do not pay cost of collection.
