Trusts arc just now a subject of lirely in

particular. The tin plate manufacturers

afraid that Americans will take to mating
tin plate, and thus spoil their best market
IBY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
Liverpool, March 23. Copyright.
There is much talk just now of various
trusts. A corner has been firmly fixed in
fire bricks and fire clay, and the iron
makers and others who use these articles are
already howling over an advance of 15 to 20
per cent in prices. The Coal Trust, which,
with a capital of 100,000. 000, was to have
made the biggest American corner seem
small, has not sot beyond the stage of nego
tiation. Some of the greatest coal masters
will have nothing to do with it, and it will
probably fizzle. The threatened Paper
Trust is likely to have an end equally ig
nominous. The tin plate manufacturers in Sonth
Vales, Staffordshire and "Worcestershire are
making desperate efforts to conceal from the
world, and especially from the knowledge
of their customers in the United States, that
they are endeavoring to form a trust with
the object of sending up prices.
'EED 2TOT W-OKBT.
The fact is undeniable, but it need not
cause much alarm in America. The Staf
fordshire and "Worcestershire people, who
make chiefly large outside sheets, in which
there is not excessive competition, wonld
gladly combine, but they are powerless to
influence the market seriously without the
co-operation of South "Wales, which they
are not likely to secure.
The South "Wales manufacturers would
like nothing better than a big trust, but
they have too many worries on their hands.
Their riralries are too bitter, their competi
tion with each other too keen and the num
ber of new works constantly being erected
too many to permit of that absolute unity
which alone would make the proposed
iclieme a success.
They fear, too, that the formation of a
trust and the consequent large increase in
the price of tin plates would inevitahly en
courage those patriotic Americans who
maintain that there is no sound reason why
an article for which they pay millions of
dollars a year should not be made in the
"United States. In public the manufacturers,
especially the Welshmen, talk confidently
ot the impossibility of tin plates being made
in America, because the manufacture in
fixes an unusual proportion of bard labor,
at which Americans are no good, but in
private the men speak less positively.
A WHOLESOME DEEAD.
Thev know that the complaints from
America of the quality of the goods are
well founded. 'Xhey "are constantly in
mortal dread of an increase in the import
duty, and they know that if Americans ever
decide to give money and brains to the
establishment of the tin plate industry in
the United" States, South Wales would soon
haeto take second place. They are also
pwiectly well aware that the hand labor
difficulty is all moonshine. ,
Their consciences should, and probably
do, tell them tnat thev have for years
treated their men so badfv that thpre wonld
be little difficulty in inducing thonsands of
stilled workmen to emigrate to America.
2fot a week passes in South "Wales with
out a labor dispute, caused almost invari
ably by tne attempts of the manufacturers
to swindle the workmen out of fair wages.
Coercion and oppression are never absent
from the tin plate trade, and were the men
not fairly organized they would be utterly
At the moment of cabling, the men en
gaged in a big manufactory at Morristown
are out on a strike against a mean and cun
ning attempt by the employer to manipu
late prices in a manner which would trans
fer from the poor man's pocket to the rich
man's purse something like 515.000 annu
ally, and if the employer succeeds in this
struggle it is estimated" that the annual loss
to "Welsh workmen will amount to S500.
000. PHILAXTUKOriC MAXUFACTTJBEBS.
Of course these philanthropic tmplate
makers do not want to add greatly to the
price of plates. Their object is to render
themselves independent ot the wicked mid
dleman, especially the bad Liverpool men
who had lo'r too long gained riches at their
expense. At preent this could be done
comfortably by an increase of 1 shilling per
box. Then, say these modest manufactur
ers, will follow the tinplate millenium.
The maker will get a fair return for his
capital, the workmen will enjoy good wages
and constant employment, and above all,
there will be no more complaints from the
United States about the quality of plates,
because master and men will be with each
other in producing the best possible article.
Surely, it is argued, these bountiful bene
fits wonld be cheaply purchased ior a
shilling a box, an impost which the con
sumer would scarcely feel.
The Salt Trust people, however, said sim
ilar pretty things at first and have since
raised prices 30 to 40 per cent.

Green Goods Sharpers Get the Best of an
ISrrCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Jebsey City, March 23. A rustic-looking
chap, whose broad-brimmed hat was old,
while his cheap gripsack was new, attracted
the attention of' Policeman Been, at the
Pennsylvania Bailway station, this morn
ing. The newness of the bag caused the
policeman to think that the countryman
had been dealing with green goods sharp
ers, aud he imparted his suspicion to the ob
ject of them. The countryman at first de
nied the soft impeachment, but finally said,
"Yes, I came on to beat them fellers, an'
I've done it" Policeman Been made him
sing another tune by breaking open the
gripsack, and showing four packages it con
tained to be composed not of counterfeit
greenbacks, but of brown paper with a $1 or
?tf genuine greenback at the top and bottom.
The countryman, who described himself
as Samuel "W. Eeed, real estate dealer, of
Birmingham, A in., said he had paid 400
for what he supposed was $5,000 in counter
feits. The sharper with whom he had cor

Wonderful Appetite ot a Prisoner In a
Eixicott City, Md.. March 23. Among the
prisoners now confined In the EllicottCity
jail, awaiting trial at the present term of court,
is a man named Darby, whose record as a gor
mandizer will eclipse by far that of any other
person known here. Warden John Lilly says
that Darby has occupied a cell in the Institu
tion since he has been in charge. Darby's
appearance would indicate that a very
small amount of food would suffice for
so frail a frame, and that his digestive
organs would rebel at the meal of even a mod
erately healthy man. Hlnce his Incarceration,
abont two months ago, his appetite has gradu
ally increased, until now the obliging warden
has become entirely nonplussed in his efforts to
appease the gastric cravings ot the wonderf nl
eater. He is a toll, gaunt fellow, standing 6
feet and 1 inch, and weighs only ISO pounds.
He has a family, consisting of a wife and sev
eral children, and is SS years old. His regular
meals are four times greater in the way of the
amount of food than those of any other prison
er; besides, he generally eats whatever is left
by the 15 Inmates of the jail.
Warden Lilly says that his greatest feat, per
haps, was at dinner on Sunday last. He had
determined to see If he could not satisfy Darby
for once, and ordered the bill of fare accord
ingly. His meal consisted of a half gallon of
soup, and eight dinners like those furnished

MILLINERY :-: OPENING
During this week, due notice of which will appear in all the dally papers. We are go
ing to show yon one of the handsomest displays ever seen. All the above mentioned
Hats, Bonnets, Ribbons, Laces and Flowers in a charming array. Everything to be
new and original. Nothing copied. Our milliners' own ideas and designs. We know
the many who have visited our Millinery Department daring the past week will come
again and again to view the the beautiful Mendings of shapes, designs and colorings
that are to be displayed at our opening.
One of the established features ot this department Is our "No charge for trimming
when materials are purchased at our stores." Every one is familiar with it. It has
been characteristic of onr establishment, and we are going to continue it. It has
proved a tremendous success. We want it distinctly understood that withustNO
CHARGE FOR TRIMMING" does not mean inferior work or careless trimming.
On the contrary, the same care will he given to all orders alike, and the Superintend
ent of our Millinery Department has instructions that no order, however small, shall
he slighted, and that nb imperfect work shall leave our workroom. To emphaslzs
this advertisement, let us repeat: First, we employ only first-class milliners; no
cheap help admitted into this department. Second, no charge for trimming, and,
what is more important, we do not make up for this by adding to the prices of ma
terials. Third, satisfaction guaranteed and work delivered promptly when promised.
Fourth, ladles who T.'lsh to wait while their hats or bonnets are being trimmed, will
find pleasant waiting rooms on our second floor, with toilet accommodations at
tached. Waiting made a pleasure instead ot a bore.
No aasor.-ment so varied as onrs; no prices so low as ours; no stores so attractive as
ours; no clerks so attentive as ours in the whole city. Remember, no charge for
trimming. Remember, we guarantee our work to be the best. Remember, we have a
record of 20 years' honorable dealing. Several of our buyers are still East, but will
return some time during the weak. We shall have a world of new novelties in each
department then. At present a visit to onr Hosiery and Underwear Departments
would repay you. There h.is never been half so manypretty things as we are showing
now. Haveyon seen the 73c Silk vests we are sellingr Worth at least fl 23. Come in
