The Senate Finance Committee having announceq its readiness to receive delegations of the Tobacco Trade in the Committee Rooi:n at the Capitol on Tuesday, December 17 at 10:30 A.M., a large number of the prominent representatives of the tobacco interest, from all parts of the country, have b ee n notified to assemble at the Ebbitt House, at Washington, this morning, Monday, December 16."to arrange preliminaries for meeting the committee. as desired, and urging upon that body the necessity of taking up and disposing of the question of the tobacco tax imme diately. The committee appointed at the meeting of tobacco manufacturers held at the office of Messrs. Buchanan & Lyall, of this city, on Thursday, Decem her 5, to go to Washington and prepare for a conven tion of the trade, and which comprised Messrs G W Helme, Charle s Siedler, Edward McAlpin, William Buchanan and David Campbell, took the train for that city last evening. The New York Committee will, no doubt, be met at the Ebbitt House to-day by a large number of the friends of reduction from the South and West. It is to be hoped that through the united efforts of the representatives of the tobacco industry the Senate will be induc ed at once to approve the bill passed by the House at the last session and so put a speedy end to agitation and anxiety. The general sentiment of the country is in favor of a reduction of the tax on tobacco to sixteen cents a pound, and the soo11er it is determined that that shall be the future rate, the better it will be for the G overnment, the man ufacturers, the dealers and the consumers. The job hers and dealers as well as the manufacturers, all desire reduction, but the former deprecate a sud den reduction, which would leave them with a con siderable stook of old tax-paid goods on hand. As we understand the aim of the manufacturers, jobbers and dealers have nothing to fear on this account. Manu facturets want the Senate to pass the House bill with out delay, but they expect, and probably will urge, that the inauguration of the reduced tax shall be at a date sufficiently remote to afford protection to holders of old goods. Wo hope for prompt and favorable action by the Senate, and, meanwhile, tender our best wishes for the success of those who are laboring in and out of Congress for the right. CAN LABOR STRIKES BE AVERTED? This is a question that will .inspire divergent answers, "Yes" and "No" coming, perhaps, in about equal proportion. Those who take the affirmative of the issue will base their opinion mainly on the possibilities inherent in arbitration. Those who take the negative will contend that constituted as society is, and more especially as human nature is, no permanent preven tive of strikes can be found in arbitration, as neither nor employees will abide by the conclusions reached when they happen to be in c onilict with their respective aims or interests. The latter we judge to be an erroneous inference, though fairly predicable from past experience. The trouble with most former ex periments in arbitration between employer and em ployed has been that this rational method of adjusting differenc e s has not, as a rule, been resorted to until it was too late to achieve any good by it. Like the men sometimes described with whom it is a "word and a blow, and the blow first, people with "strike" oil the brain have been prone to strike first a.nd seek arbitra tion afterwards. The talkative delegates from the shops-who are usually the first to inspire discontent among their fellows-on announcing to their em ployers their delrire for increased wages, do nat think it worth while to' inquire, _or let anybody inquire for them, whether or not their wishes can be complied parties to it with a view to agreement. It must be begun and continued by both sides in sincere and thorough recognition of the rights and of each party. This done, agreement is inevitable, !)e.. cause it will be mutually advantageous to agree. It may be accepted as an undeniable proposition that there are few employers-perhaps that there is not one--who would not, as a matter of personal choice, rather pay high than low wages if they can be af forded. Equally certain is it that employees would rather labor for a rate of wages which they consider lo>V titan lose permanently their chance of earning any wages at all by thefl' calling. In these respective which differ only in degree, a guarantee of enduring harmony between the two classes will be found if sought through the agency of arbitration. Convince employers that the conditions are such as to make it reasonably safe in a pecuniary point of view to accede to the demands of their employees, and they will promptly do it. Convince employees that the conditions are such as to make acquiescence imprac ticable, and they will refrain from, insisting upon it. To admit frankly the right of employees to ask for their labor as much as they think it is lrnrth, is the first step in arbitration for employ ers. To admit frankly the right of employers to pay for labor the price they think it is worth to tHem, is the first step in arbitration for employees. These admissions made, half the victory is already won; other half will be secured in almost every instance by full mutual ex planation and discussion Mutual explanation and discussion constitute the second step in arbitration; the third and last is to accept the decisions of the arbitrators. In the plan of arbitration originated and adopted by the employees of Messrs. Straiton & Storm, of this city, and published in our previous issue as als o in some of the local daily journalR a way seems to be provided for making strikes, with all their attendant evils, in the cigar manufactories of that firm both un necessary and impo'ssible hereafter. Our readers will doubtless remember the provisions of the document referred to; and a synopsis of it, therefore, need not be made here. It stipulates that all points of dis agreement hereafter arising between the firm and their employees shall be adjusted, after consultation and the taking of testimony, by a representative of the firm and duly appointed representatives of their em ployees, each party agreeing to abide by the decision of the majority; and no vote to be taken unless all the representatives are present. This plan, or one of a kindred character, differing as much as it may in detail, if adopted by our other prominent cigar manu facturers, will, we feel assured, put an end for ever to the strikes by which they have been annoyed within the past few years. Connected with the scheme de vised by the workmen of Messrs. Straiton & Storm is a provid ent institution, to which both employer and employed regularly contribute for the benefit the latter. This is unquestionably a commendable and wise arrangement, as it serves to more closely identify tho two parties in interest, while insuring the one most dependent prompt and abundant pecuniary as sistance when incapacitated by illness The proprietor and workinen of the New York daily Times have been for the past two years operating on a plan similar .to the one inaugurated by Messrs. Straiton & Storm and their. operatives, and it has been found to work to the satisfaction of all concerned. MINOR EDITORIALS AND NEWS ITEMS. RELIEVING HIS BONDSMEN.-Mr. J. F. DeBerg was arrested on Tuesday last, in a suit for damages for libel on the complaint of Mr. S. Barnett, of this city. Mr DeBerg was placed under $3,000 bail, which he readily furnished the same day; butfor reasons best known to himself he voluntarily surrendered himself on Saturday to the Sheriff, thereby releasing his sure ties. Mr DeBerg's counsel, it is said, will bring the cace to trial as speedily as possible. SAFE AT Ron.-Mr. Ax, of the firm of Gail & Ax, Baltimore, returned in good health, we are pleased to. be able to sta..e by the steamer Weser from Germany during the past week. Mr. Ax, as previously an nounced in THE ToBACCO LEAF, recentlY!accompanied his son to Germany to make arrangements for the ad mission of the latter to one of the noted universities there., w ere the young man is to complete his educa-tion. -SUTTER BROS., Dealel'S Iii.

It also follows that goods made In one State, and tr!Lde marked under that law, go into the trade of another State, under Its provisions and protection, as well But where shall the line be dr&wn!

Why should hls greed of gain pauie at the boundary line of a State when it Is so great as to make him a thief! Some yeal'8 ago the ship Bristol was cast away on Rockaway Beach, near this city One Coombs stole from ita cargo, and was indicted under a law (which Congreoo had pe.soed in the exercise of its power to regulate commerce) to purrlsh theft trom vessels in distress, etc It was admitted the there wu comm.aUed abo.-e high-water mark and "'the Connty of Queon.s in this State Tho judgft! at the United States Circwt In thi8 Dlstnct dhided in opinion, and sent this question to the Supreme Court of the United States, whether, since the offence wa.s committed within the State of New York, and not on the aeu could Coombs be punished under the law aforeoaid r It will be oeen that the preclSe question we have before us was presented to the court. viz Does the power of Congreas "to regulate commerce lffth toreJ.gD nations &nd the several St&tea" ceue because the offence wu committed in the State where it is sought to be puwohed!

A question much disell88ed1 and fortunately well decided, alford& further Illustration, and the decision 1t has received may throw light on this di.aeUMioc Under the proVlSlon, "To regulate commerce with natJons, and among the several St&tes, and with the Indian tribe&," Coogresa waa held to have powe:r to regulate nanga tlon But many navigable riven! are wholly or in part within the llmlts ot one St&te. Under such circumstances, could Congress regul&te the navigation-the commerce of those It was and is held that 1t could. But again, it has been held that ferry boata running from one place to another m the same State did not come unddr the author1ty of Congress A.. careful oonsiderat1on of these cases seems to establish & general principle-one applicable to the matter under coMideratloo Where from the nature. of the case the subject matter cannot take its place in foreign or inter-8tate 1t is without the provl81on of the ConstituUon and the powers to Congress therefrom1 but where it may. and at times neceasarily must, in the nature of things, be the subject of foreign or inter State commerce, then the provisions ap ply, and eomay do &8 it ..... lit We regret we cannot more tuU1 discuss this Important matter. but the upobot of the whole thing II thlo -The moot important reuons which heretofore haY& Induced the mereanlile community to devise and reg! ter trade-m&rk.s under the UnJied States law still exist unimpaired. 1;'bere Is reasonable ground (or hope and belief that the declsion of Judge Dyer will not be alllrmed by the higher court. At any 1'&te amplll protection is dorded by the laws or, we believe, eYery State in the Union. Registration UDder the United States law is still open to him who devises a trade-m.ark, and, no ma.tter what may be the ultimate fate ot this queotlonln the United States t)upreme Court, 1t will for a considerable time to come afford evidence very dlfftcult to rebut to any court in which an infringer may be atta.>ked, that the complainant at the elate of his cert.iftcate ot registration, if not before, owned the trade-mark in ques tion., &lid that the foundation or h18 claJm for relief Ja sound It also at tord.s a. sure and speedy means to convince an honeet competitor of the existence of a right, he ought not and W'ill not Infringe It> atrords to the eollrt like facilities In detecting an in!rillpr and sh1elding the injurod from his puacy H'EI69, w1th France And agam the s&nie by the "Addltwnal Arttcle to Treaty of Commerce and NaVI gatiOn," w1th Belgmm, procla1med July 30, 1869 The val1d1ty of those treaty stipulatiOns has not been t.hs puted It IS an axwm that the powers to make treaties and statutes are commensurate The subse \l.ueut Reg1strat1on Act embraces rights guaranteed by treaty or conventiOn That act IS mtended In part to effectuate those treaties It prescr1bes a mode of makmg a depos1t, a record, a reglBtry, so that notiCe, actual or constructive. may be g1ven to the world, and convement evidence be furmshed If a treaty IS val1d, so must be a statute passed m accord ance with It Concedmg the proposition that our Government can and must protect fore1gners m the1r nghts to use their trade-marks, how can beneficent protectwn to the s&nie extent be derued to our own Citizenst A Government Without power to JUdiCially protect Its own mc1dents of commerce, when It can protect those of strangers and aliensJ is an mconcelv able anomaly. If the statute 1s v01a, so must be the treaties mentiOned. The declaration (a treaty by another name) between the United States and Great Bntain, proclanned July 17, 1878, says that it is for DEC. j6_ the protectiOn of "everythmg relatmg to property in trade-marks and trade-labels. It lS understood that any person who des1res to obtain the aforesaid pro tection must fulfill the formiilit1es by the laws of the respective countries." The fonnalities" referred to are those that are required by registra.tion statutes then and now m force m each country. Why was that solemn declaratiOn made Was 1t to secure to CitiZens or subJects of one country the right to sue m the courts of the other! No. The courts of both countnes were previously open as fully to foreigners as to natives. What neceSSlty, then, for the declaratwn I It was m order to secure the advantages offered through It IS a corollary from the fore gomg that if the statute IS unconstitutwnal, treaties, conventions a.nd declarations on the same subject matter are mocker1es and costly delusions. The pre amble to the Constitution declares that 1t was ordamed to '' establish Justice and 'J?romote the general welfare." The fr&niers of that Instrument no doubt in tended the power to regulate commerce" to be as ample as any other power conferred Th1s opnnon, whether of worth or not, 1s given w1th out hesitation Constant consideratiOn for eight of the pomt mvolved, makes It easy to give, however crude this necessarily hasty expresSion. Ttie mind that falls short of ommsCience IS prone to err but w1th Thomas Jefferson, we may say that "Eri.-or ol opmion may be tolerated if reason IS left free to combat It." Surpr1smg acts, by their very novelty, captl"9'ate and charm. ExemplificatwDs m every-day life reduce this assertaon to a truiSm When courts so w1dely dlSII.gree, we must seek a cntenon m the spirit and reason of the law, while not entirely disregarding its effects and consequences If counsel had more deeply refiected, the cases of Duwell vs Bohmer and Leidersdorf vs Flint might have been presented and argued m the clear light of constitutwnal authority. The latter case is said to be on 1ts way to the Supreme Court of the Uruted States It is not likely thatltcan be reached sooner than three or four ) ears In the meantnne mcalculable damage will ensue, unlei!S learned and magnarumous Judges of CirCUit Courts will rectify an exdllsable but unhappy slip Conclmwns.-Congress has full power to legislate on the subject of trade-marks. That po:wer is der1ved from constitutiOnal authonty "to regulate commerce." The statute of July 8, 1870 (Revised Statutes, ,g37-4,947), 18 consequently valid. Very respectfully submitted, WK.

NEW YOUK.-The leaf tobacco market was not acttve the past week in any of its branches, if we except the Spanish, m which a more than average weekly bU8llle118 was done The demand for Western leaf has been but more varied than of late; the exi;JOrtB comprtsmg lines for Italy France Germany, Afnca and other sections of the globe.

There was little or nothing domg for export. In the country buyers are busy. Our Wmdsor, Conn., corTespondent, H., the late destructive storm, says:-" As nearly as can be some 78 tobacco sheds were blown from thetr foundatiOns by the gale. Poquonock and Wmd sor suffered a little; but, fortunatelyi most of the tobacco was out of the sheds. The ear y reports as to the amount of damage to tobacco are more or less ex aggerated." He adds:-''There have been more to bacco buyers looking at tobacco in the Valley during the past week than for the same time during the past eight years. About 25 tons of 1878 crol? have fieen bought in Windsor, the larger part of it bemg the hail cut tobacco." Messrs. Chas.

There 1s no doubt that the new crop is fully equal to any ever grown in that valley. About a score of tobacco packers arrived in Lancaster, Pa., early on Monday, and soon sprelid over the country in search of the fine crop. Some of the finest lots of tobacco were rap idly bought up Three of the buyers were from Cahfornia, and most of the others froDl New York. The actual matenal loss m the regton of the lower Miasis sippi Valley scourged by
ecrctary Sherman' s request for legislation a.uthonzmg the issue of $10 certificates of deposit, has been followed by the mtroductton m both hous e s of bills to that etl'ect. They are to run from $10 up through multiples of that suDl, but not above $100 These c e rtificates w1ll affo r d an easy mean s of mvesting small sums s a f ely They will heat $3 65 p e r cent inter e st. .A. Ban Franc1sco paper says -The New York Cigar makers have assured then fellow craftsme n m California that if the y wil,l only supp1ess their Chinese competitors, they, the New Yorkers, would come there in hundreds and thousands Callforma tobacco-twisters," says the exchange, are now earnestly considering which of the two would be the greater eviL" Not Dlore than 5 000,000 of the trade dollars are in circula tion in the Uruted States, and 25,000,000 are known to have been sent abroad. .A.t the present rate of exchange in China (92Ji, cents) there would be an Rggregate profit to the jobbers of f2,000,000 10 reshipping to this country the above amount, as indicated by a despatch noticed in another part of this column. Lomsville has the reputation of being the largest leaf tobac co market in the world. Tobacco is one of the most imDor tant agricultural products of Kentucky, which from its early settlement has been a tobacco-growing State. The receipts of tobacco at the Louisville warehouses for the year ending Oc tober 81 amounted to 69,221 hol(sheads; sales 119,025 do. The sales for the present year, eaaing December, will be about 70,000 hogaheads, the largest busmess ever recorded in Louisville.
