A SERIOUS BLOW TO CO-OPURATIOX.
i Pennsylvania a Blind Giant. Bound Down by Marty
A number of prominent Pittsburg manu
facturers entered their rjrotest yesterday
against the provision of the proposed reve
nue bill taxing manufacturing corporations.
H. "W. Oliver, Jr., suggested that railroad,
light and fuel monopolies should be. taxed
by the State, and held that the measure in
controversy was a direct blow to co-operation
between employers and employes.
4 rrnoM a staff connEsroxDEXT.:
Harmsbubg, February 21. H. W.
Oliver, Jr., who came over from Pittsburg
this morning to labor with the "Ways and
Means Committee of the House, sees politi
cal consequences which the members of the
.Legislature ought to keep before their eyes
along side the economic facts, before they
decide to followthe ideas of the State offi
cials, as shown in their geccral revenue bill,
and impose a State tax on corporations.
This vitw of the question was not formally
laid. before the "Ways and Means Committee
to-day by the speakers, but is undoubtedly
a point they have not overlooked.
The "Ways and Means Committee meeting
was held this afternoon in tlie hall of the
House of Representatives. Chairman Gra
ham sat in the chair of the Chief Clerk,
with Secretary Dravo by his side. The
gentlemen who appeared on behalf of the
manufacturing interests, were Representa
tive Bean, Cyrus E. Elder, of the Cambria
Iron and Steel Company; H. "V. Oliver,
Pittsburg; Mr. TViUon, of Philadelphia;
Colonel I. N. Schoonmaker, of Pittsburg;
ex-Auditor General Nilcs, and W. C.
Quincs, of Jones & Laughlins, Pittsburg.
The right for the particular provision of the
bill under consideration was made by Hon.
Henry Hall, of Mercer, who questioned
and.crostS-qucstioned the speakers and made
it plain that if the m nufacturing centers
were against the bill, the rural population
was by no means unanimous against it.
A TKOTEST FEOSI 520,000,000.
Colonel Bean simply read a protest from
the manufacturers of the Schuylkill valley,
representing 520,000,000 capital and 8,000
employes. Their objections to the tax on
corporations are that the tax was only re
pealed in 18S5, and that since that time
many companies have been indtrced thereby
to become corporations; that Ohio and New
Jersey, competing with Pennsylvania on
the.'nestand east, have no such tax; that
such a tax tends to discourage co-operative
companies; that there is considerable differ
ence agaiust the Pennsylvania manufact
urer between the wages paid here and in
New England; that the imposition
of the tax will tend to the lower
ing of wages, and that the decrease that
might be brought about in manufacturing
would injure agricultural interests by de
stroying markets tor agricultural products.
CyrusElder,ot the Cambria Company.Sec
rctary of the Philadelphia Association of
Manufacturers, said it was an admitted fact
that the national prosperity was largely due
to the policy of discriminating in taxation
in favor of the manufacturer. He thought
it ought to be a serious question with Penn
sylvania whether she of all others should
depart from this policy. He traced the his
tory of the taxation and exemption of man
ufacturers, and stated that white the reve
nue from corporations was $1,531,110 in
1884, the year before the repeal of 'the tax,
it last year had increased to 51,814,818 from
the payment of bonuses on new charters
alone. Mr. Elder stated to Mr. Hall that
the tax on manufacturing corporations
would really decrease the revenue, as man
ufacturers would not form new ones,and old
ones would surrender their charters.
H. W. Oliver, Jr., said that from 1878 to
18S4 manufacturing corporations decreased
to less than 100, and no new charters were
taken out. Allegheny county had but one.
"It the bill becomes a law," he said, "it
will cost me 530,000 where it now doesn't
cost a cent." The bill he also declared was
a direct blow at co-operation.
"How will you avoid this and at the same
time create revenues?" asked Representa
t "Tax corporations having exclusive
rights," answered Mr. Oliver. "Tax rail
roads, water companies, gas companies, elec
tric light companies and such as these. AVe
meet a bitter competition from the South
now and why aid it, and so destroy the pro
ducing po.wer that makes this Common
wealth a fat field for these monopolies.
Raise your revenue from them."
In answer to a question about the extent
of co-operation in Allegheny county, Mr.
Oliver stated he could not answer fully, but
could say there was hardly a limited com
pany in Pittsburg in which some working
men have not other than a wage interest.
The principal debate of the afternoon was
between ex-Auditor General Niles, who is
said to represent Baltimore and New York
capitalists, and Representative Hall. Mr.
Hall's questions were direct and to the
point on the constitutional leatures of the
case, and the replies of the ex-Auditor Gen
eral were for the most part evasive or after
the Yankee fashion, answering question
with question. Mr. NJles best point on the
constitutional argument "was that the im
position of a tax on manufacturing corpora
tions creates an' inequality in taxation ou
subjects of the same class, something the
A BLIND GIANT.
He based this on the fact that an indi
vidual manufacturerand a manufacturing
corporation were in all respects on the same
footing in their business and in the markets
where they bought and sold, and therefore
to impose a State tax on the latter and nol
on the former amounted to oppression. The
ex-Auditor General characterized this class
of legislation as unfriendly to the best in
terests of the-State. He compared Penn
sylvania to a blind giant, bound down by
"But," inquired Representative Hall,
"doesn't Pennsvlvania get along pretty well
after all lor a blind man?"
"Yes," admitted Mr. Kiles, "but your
unfriendly legislation which forces peopleto
get married in New Jersey, has also sent a
great deal of money from Philadelphia into
The same State to be invested in manufacto
ries." "In other words," retorted Representative
Hallj "Pennsylvania not only does well,
but its prosperity spreads beyond its own
Representative Hall, before leaving Ihc
ex-Auditor General, succeeded in showing
by hard questioning that that gentleman
had not always thought on this tax subject
as he does now, and that the letter which he
wrote to Governor Pattison indorsing the
exemption of manufacturinij corporations,
without which indorsement the Govornor
would not have permitted the measure to
become a law, was most unwillingly wrung
from Mr. Xiles.
Mr. B. Q. "Wilson, of Philadelphia, ar
pued that the Constitution permitted the
classification of corporations, and that under
this classification manufacturing corpora
tions could be made exempt from taxation.
Mr. HaU replied that the Constitution
would permit their classification for taxa
tion, but nut for the exemption of a certain
COKE MEN KICK.
Colonel Schoonmaker devoted a brief
V time to the coke companies-and corpora-!
tions. Previous to 18S5 there were but four
corporations in this line where now there
are ten. He referred to the labor troubles
of the coke region, and said his own com
pany had been been chartered for the pur
pose of co-operation with emploves as a so
lution of the labor problem. The legisla
tion under consideration, being a consider
able burden on corporations, would be a
blow at the happy consummation coke men
desire to reach. The legislation would also
be a great aid to- his competitors in "West
"Virginia and elsewhere.
W. C. Quinsy, of Jones & Laughlins, re
ferred to the heavy indirect taxes already
paid by mining-and manufacturing corpor
ations" through the tax on the products
transported from them. Seventy-eight per i
cent of the traffic of the Pennsylvania Kail
road in s Pennsylvania was from these
sources, and they, therefore, paid, be ar
gued, that proportion of the railroad com
nanies' tax. Chicago, the rrrcat distributing
point of the "West, has the advantage of wa-
ter competition, ana so nas vyieveianu anu
other points in Ohio. "Will you further
handicap our efforts to compete with these?
Our manufactories should oe fostered," lie
argued; "lor each one of them makes a lo
Among the Constitutional points touched
on during the discussions, particularly in
the verbal contest between Messrs. Niles
and Hall, was the one that it wasuncon
stitutional to exempt manufacturing cor
porations from taxation; it was also uncon
stitutional to exempt building and loan as
sociations. There seemed to be little differ
ence ot opinion on this point.

The Pennsylvania Railroad yesterday
issued a circular to the effect that com

II. S. Paul, Esq., President Americas Republican
Ctnb, Pittsburg, Pa.:
Dear Sib At tbo urgent request of Hon.
Stanislaus Oautier, United States Consul at
this port, I to-day presented him-the red, white
and blao umbrella of the Americus Club,
which I had the pleasure of carrying up Broad
way on November 3, 18S8, when acting as tho
Grand Marshal of the club in that memorable
Mr. Gauticr was appointed United States
Consul tor Northern Hayti, in the Black Re
public, Dy yonr illustrious leader and patriot,
President Grant, in 1870. He has been reap
pointed by every President since then. Includ
ing President Cleveland. I can assure you,
however, that be is no Mugwump, but a Grant
Republican, and that means a Republican
first, last and all the time.
Owing to the intense beat of the tropics and
the fact that this Republic is engaged in a
civil war, it seemed most proper that I should
-use the Americus Club umbrella for protection
against the sun's rays and the dangers of in
ternecine combat. I can assure you tho pro
tection which it typifies is no misnomer, and
from Old Sol and Havtian bullets it secured
me complete immunity. As 1 leave to-day, and
as Consul Gautier is a good Republican and
much interested in your club, because of your
fidelity to General Grant and tiuo Republican
principles, I presented him with the emblem
which you all cherish, and which has been a
patriotic incentive in our recent party suc
cesses. .Long may the Republic of Hayti live,
and long may the Americus Club live to in
culcate Republican ideas.
