NEW YORK, March 9, 1878 EDITOR TOBACCO LEAF -A local JOUmal haVlllg re ported my failure, I desire to say that the facts are these I have been m busmess for over thirteen years and never had a dollar of paper protested The general depression m the trade, losses on tobacco and the failure of other houses made it very difficult for me to meet my paper, and caused a. temporary suspeilS1on only, es"I have mad-ea satisfactory settlement with all OUR WASHINGTON LETTER From Our Own Correspondent W .ASHINGTON, March 2 A statement has been made by the Treasury Depart ment, showmg the items of decrease and mcrease m the.revenue for the first seven months of the present fiscal year The decrease on spirits amounts to $3,210, 274, on tobacco $326,838 on banks, $178,272, the whole sale dealers m spirits, $59,520, total The mcrease is as follows -On cigars, $405, 725, dealers and manufacturers of tobacco, $36,098, total mcrease onto bacco $441,823 From this statement it will be seen that the actual revenue from tobacco for the first seven months of this fiscal year was $114 985 more than was for the same time last year, when there was no agitation of the quest10n of reduct10n, found by de ductmg the decrease of the actual revenue from smok mg and chewrng tobacco ($326,838) from the total m crease of the revenue from cigars and the manufac tures and dealers of tobacco The statement shows at the same tnne that the revenue from spirits m every way has very materially decreased although the ques tion of reduction of the tax on that article has been practically settled These facts, it is argued, explode the theory of the Co=iss10ner and the Secretary of the Treasury that the great falling off m the revenues has been owing to the agitat10n of the tax question on these two prmcipal sources of revenue It follows that the falling off must be due to other causes The m crease m the tobacco revenue undoubtedly shows an additional number of men entermg the tobacco busi ness The Committee on Ways and Means are still consid ermg the tariff bill They will not reach tobacco before some time next week As to the quest10n of tackmg the tobacco tax on the tariff bill I have obtamed the views of the members of the Sub Committee on the Internal Revenue Mr Tucker says he is decidedly m favor of it, for the good of the measm e itself Person ally he says he would prefor to have the bill providmg for the reduction put throuJi:h separately, if that were possible as 1t would not then be subJect to the delays which may attend the passage of the tariff bill He feels, as many others do who are mterested m the quest10n, that there are many members who care nothing about the question of reduction and would probably vote agamst it m a separate bill but if the question comes upm a general tariff bill recommended by the cotnm1ttee, they might feel mduced to vote for it He says that the feelmg m the committee and m the House 1S qmte general favormg puttmg the subJect of mternal revenue m the tanff bill This is especially true of all friends of reduction who fear the force of the argument that while they do not oppose relievmg the tobacco mterest, they at the same trme do not thmk this relief should be at the expense of any other mterest Such members might oppose the reduct10n if it comes from the comnuttee m the shape of a separate bill But if it comes with the tariff bill its passage seems to be msured The tariff is undoubtedly a most popular measure m the great Northwest, where tobacco 1S not grown, and its mterests have but few representatives on the floor of Congress They will favor the embodi ment of this tax, therefore, m the tariff bill, as it will carry with it a large support from the other sections of country, and probably secure the passage of the tariff bill They feel that to leave it out nught at least Jeopardize its passage In the case of Mr Burchard, the other member of the Sub Co=ttee, he feels that the tax on tobacco is op press1ve to the production of that article yet having no special mterest m the and takmg a deep mterest m the tariff, he is unwilling to see the friends of the one dlSconnected from the friends of the other At the same time, he holds it to be the duty equally of the friends of the tariff revision and the frrnnds of the mternal revenue rev1s10n that they should be mutual m their support of any measure lookmg to a relief of all mterests of the country He says he takes no special mterest m the tobacco quest10n He is however, dlS posed to do what 1S right toward the friends of the to bacco mterest There are a large number of members who take precisely the same view I am very much mdebted to Mr Burwell of Richmond, Va, who is still here, watching faithfully and wisely the mterests of the tobacco people, for many suggestions on this all absorbmg topic He says that it 1S his opm1on, from the temper of Congress, that they will not legislate on the subJect of taxes piecemeal The reduction of the tax on tobacco is a part of the general proposition to relieve the mdustries of the country He also says that he believes that it is the purpose of both the Committee and the House that all proposed taxat10n should be passed upon m a smgle bill, as it was m the legislation of 1872 on this subJect The tobacco representatives are equally mterested m that portion of the tariff measure relating to liquorice, which will give free liquorice to the manufacturers for domestic and foreign consumption, and this matter is rece1vmg favorable consideration by the Ways and Means Colllilllttee Mr Pilkmton, a tobacco man from Richmond, Va was here this week, and had a talk with the members of the Sub-Committee on the revenue but their views have already been sufficrnntly detailed, and nothmg new was elicited from them by that gentleman He was here partly on private busmess1 but while here took it upon hrmself to contribute his snare of mfluence on behalf of the same general mterest B P G I WASHINGTON, March 8 Senator Beck's speech m the Senate last Tuesday 18 the key note to the whole subJect of taxation It was probably the most complete argument delivered this session of Congress on the question of tariff and taxa t1on His speech has caused considerable comment among men of all classes, and his views are the reflex of those entertamed by a large maJor1ty, I thmk, of members at both ends of the Capitol After g1vmg at great length his reasons for a general reduction of tax at10n as a rehef to the country1 he speaks of a special class whose mterests demanaed a reduction This class consisted of tobaceo peoJ:>le who are suffermg greatly from the present stagnation of busmess caused largely by the high rate of taxation Petitions have been commg m by the scores to members and senators protestmg agamst the proposed mcome tax These men say that it is virtually a tax on mdustry and thrift, and contmue to say that obJects of taxation are more properly m the vices and luxuries of the :people, such as whiskey and tobacco, from which the md1vidual who ultimately pays the tax can abstam, if he so pleases, without detriment to the co=umty Mr Beck's reply to these arguments 18 very pertment He says that those gentlemen would doubtless be glan to have their property and mcomes continue free from all taxation, and let the day laborer who has nothmg but hlB wages pay as much as he now does to support the Federal Government, as they do with their prmcely fortunes England m 1876 he contmues, collected from them and the tax that year was only one third of wnat it had been for t:h.e greater portion of the time smce 1861, and they forget that the raismg of tobacco, which they seem to regard as a vice, is as legitnnate an mdustry as any other, and is followed by four tnnes the number of men who ever paid an mcome tax He said that he :proposed to exanune the issue they present so sharply m their zeal to avoid payment of their legitimate portion of the expenses of the Federal Government, by a statement of the exactions rmposed and wroni;s done to the people he represented by the laws relative to tobacco He had laid before the Senate petitions by the dozen, signed by hundreds of men as honest, as deservmg of consid eration as the millionaires who seek to oppress them, humbly beggmg for relief He produced a letter from one of his =ediate constituents .on the subJect of the tobacco tax This letter was from W J Kennedy, at Headquarters, Kentucky, dated Jan 14, 1878 It says Inclosed you will please find a petition to the Senate and House of Representatives askmg a reduc t1on of the tax on manufactured tobacco In 1873 and 1874 I made money In 1875 the tax was mcreased from 20 to 24 cents, leaf declined llllmediately 4 cents on the pound I have lost money every year smce the tax was mcreased Last year I bought tobac110 for less than the cost of production, and yet I made no money I am now buymg leaf tobacco at 2 to 5 cents per pound for

Yet tile producer of tobacco is pro hib1ted by law from sellmg hlS crops to any person but a licensed dealer, who cannot sell agam m quantities less than a hogshead unless he pays a special license of not less than $500, which 1s more money than he ever saw These poor people, m very many mstances, live far remote from any licensed dealer Many of them have no means of carrymg their crops to market, and if they do succeed, they must take what the nearest licensed dealer sees fit to give, for there is generally only one, and he the agent of some large distant manufacturer, many miles from the pomt which they have often with great difficulty succeeded m reachmg Yet when we complam of these things and ask a nutigation of the oppression, when we show that 24 cents a pound, coupled with such rumous re strict10ns, is destructive of all the rights of the pro ducer, we are met by petitions of the nch men of the East who think that these poor people have no rights which Congress ought to respect Surely people who r8.1S0 an agricultural product which furmshes $41,000 000 of revenue and $32,000,000 of our foreign exports are entitled to some cons1derat10n, even if the deficiem l y caused by gr antmg the relief should be made up from the mcome!l of Mr Astori Mr Drexel, and their co pet1t10ners Why should al the machmery of Government be mamtamed to guard and protect their colossal fortunes, aud they be required to contribute comparatively nothmg and escape all the burdens imposed on the iioor pAople descnbed m the letter I have read! This speech of Mr Beck is regarded as havmg the true rmg It is counted a very able speech on the subJeCt of ta11ff and mterBal revenue The progress of the Ways and Means Committee is very slow It will not do to hazard a conJecture as to when they will re,Port the tariff bill to the House Nothmg new especially needs to be said regardmg the proposit10ns relatmg to the tobacco question The reduct10n to 16 cents is a foregone conclusion as far as the committee is concerned A.ll other questions per tainmg to the subJect are practu)ally settled, and have already been foreshadowed m THE LEU' B P G Statement of S.

When Chinaware began to be used for pipe bowls, another part was added to the pipe-the cast or cylinder. This is a flctile of different shapes with two holes, one of them for the tube, the other for the bowl Thl8 cylinder receives the most of the Juice, and keeps the tobacco dry m the bowl In order to lessen the stiff ness of the connect10n of tube and mouthpiece, an other part was added-the hose, a spiral wire covered with wool or silk, to which the mouthpiece 18 fastened.
