A confe r e n ce was held l a t ely by the tobacco manu facturers of Tre T es a.nd the neighboring l ocalities, the object of which was to unite on a plan to effect im in c r ease of prices on of a.IJ kinds, in view of the increased tax 011 the domesti c article by the passage of the tax bill. The conference agreed to raise t h e price pfennigs per pound. Late advicllSI from Germany announce that manufacturers and dealers in several other localiti es a r e moving to raise the price of smoking tobacco 10 to 20 pfennigs per pound. A general convention of representatives of the tobacco trad,e is to be held at Casse l s in the early part1 of October, when the ques tion of effecting a gradual increase of prices, in conformity with the incre ased tax, will be one of the principal topics of discussio n Another important subject to be considered on this occa s ion is the project to effect a reform of tbe credit system. Under the p resent system buyers require from manufacturers credit 'for six months, which by means of notes and otherwise is frequently extended to nine and twelve months. The e n forcemen t of the new tll-X affords an appropriate opportunity to e ffect a c hange in this respect ARBITRATION AND CONCILIATION: During the Summer of lSiS Mr. Jos. D Weeks, a niemoor of the editorial staff of the Iron Age, and Secretary of the Western Iro n Association of Pitts burgh, Pa., visited Epgland to investigate the workings of the different Boards of Arbitration CDnciliation iJ'!that country. Mr. Weeks was appointed a Special 8ommissioner on behalf of the State of Pennsylvania by Governor for this purpose. As the action qf _Messrl? Straiton & Stor:Ql t _h"eil ein ployee8 in council for the object of settling differences respecting the payment of wages has attracted much attention throughout the trade, a review of the report of Mr. Weeks will no doubt prove accept.o'tble to our readers. Ou r attention is first called to the fact that indus tria l arbitration and conciliation bad their origin early in the present century in France Trade guilds for the regulation of trade matters had existed in that country-for many years, but were abolis hed dur ing the part of the reign of Louis XVI. By commaQ. d of Nap6lere." In Bel gium similar courts are i n existence but owing io certain c;.useR they have not been as successful as those in the sister country. In Great Britain, though laws have been of a similar character, they have never been put into operation, and where boards of arbitration have been formed 'they have been voluntary. The first of these permanent boards came into existence _in 1 860, at Notti ngham, in the hosiery and glove trade, through the efforts of Mr. A. i Mun della, a representative of Sheffield in the House of Commons The hosiery and glove trade in England is carried on only in a certain section, and. through the concentration of skilled labor at these points a. tradeunion was eas ily formed embracing all the workingmen in this trade. For many years strikes, riots, murders, arsons, and machine-breaking were common,. and employer and employee were at emnity with each other. In 1860, during a strike, a me11ting o f manu facturers was heldap.d a 'committee' of three was apr pointed This committee met with a dozen le .. ders of the and the result of conference was the formation of the Boa .rd of Arbitration and Cone ciliation in Glove and Hosiery Trade." The board consists of twenty-two members, half operators and half manufacturers, and its de c ision s are considered as binding upon a ll. A chairman was elected who had vote, imd a casting vote as well in the case of a tie. This l atter vote wa.S the cau se of trouble and fell into, disuse This board has been a very gl,'el\t sucCess, and owing to the regular meetings of the board the rela ti o ns which formerly exJsted between master and man have been almost entirely changed. Some years after the establishment of the N bam Board a simi lar one was formed in the buildingtrade, which has worked equally well-. This one dif. fers from its predecessor in having a refer, ee who acts as chairman and casts the deciding vote. Th e gentle man cht>sen was a judge of a coun,ty court, an!l proved: himself well adapted tq the position he held. The,. original -rules of the board.made Qo. provision f6r con ciliation, but one was !?

2 and conciliation been seen, though in some instances in not as large a degTee 1.18 in others. The feeling that capital and labor are antagonists has larg_ely disap peare d, and a feeling of confidence between the manu facturer and workingman has in a great degree taken its place. This must naturally be the case when the relations"'of the.. two p'arties are better understood. No w that the ice ill broken, and the cigar man1;lfac turer-and_ the-cigarffiaker have" settled their ences by arbitration, we think that this mode of settling diSputes will command the attention' of our trade in this country. It is very probable that con ciliation-for arbitration must come after conciliation -would be a very successful mod e of putting an end to the innumerable disputes and misunderstandings whic h arise tn the trad. e, more particularly in the cigar manufacturing branc h Our manufacturers are jl.if ferent from those in England ; here they are many of them men who have worked at the bench and thoroughly understand the disadvantages which the workingman under. In England it is otherwise-the m anufacturer; often inherits his b'usine.ss, and cannot feel the hardships which his employee has to undergo. These of arbitration and conciliation might be formed in our different manufacturing districts, and if they prove satisfactory, there is every probability. that they will become permanent, for they will certainly cease to exist if they are found wanting. It might be wise when again diBBI.Itisfaction arises in any one of our shops to have the matter referred to a board formed equally of members of the Cigar Manufac. turers' AsSociation of the place in which the shop is situated, and of members of the Cigar-maker's Union, with some person not connected with the trade to act as a referee. As an experiment it will cost nothing, and the results may be of much good to all concerned. The pamphlet published by Mr. Weeks, containing his report, is well worthy of perusal by all persons con nected _with tl;'Bde, as it not only gives a luc_id aJJllOUnt of the practical operations of arbitration and c oncili a tion, but also contains the rules and regulations of the different boards in England, which may be of use in forming such in this country. !I' HE TOBACCO LEAF. & Bro., E.

SO The same wind swept through the Housatonic Valley and wrought less injury there, as well as in the Con necticut Valley, than has been reported. After the farmers had righted the overturned plants, a few broken bottom ]eaves were all that was visible of the ravages of the storm in either valley. Mr. Dunn was cutting briskly; with perhaps a dozen men, on Thurs day, but the other growers in Poquonock had d o n e but little in that direction when we left them the same evening. Annexed is a list of the growers and planted between Rainbow and Windsor, E.o nonock the acres including as assorters and packers, and when dealers have the opportunity of preparing their own goods for the mar ket, all parties interested, from producer to manu facturer, are benefited. The method of cultivation in the Housatonic Valley does not differ from that pre vailing elsewhere; but we observed that the practice of hanging ventilating doors to the curing-sheds so that the bottom ends may stand out from the building instead of swinging to the sides of it, and exposing to sun and storm the tobacco directly in front of the apertures, is coming into favor. Mr Staub has on his shed, besides the doors adjusted in the new manner, and in place of a ventilating cupola, a covered opening extending the entire length of the ridge-board, and -RAINBOW. f k d f f h h d E : Snow, 2'acres; R.

VISITs.-Mr. John E. Robinson of the firm of Messrs Oliv e r & Robinson, of the W estham Tobacco Works. Richmond, Va., caded upon us this week. In speaking Mr. Robinson the prospects of trade, he mformed us that the busmess done by his firm last month was quite remarkable for the time of the vear and that in his opinion this Wl.l8 an evidence that -bu si: ness generally was improving. We think that tho popularity of brands of cigars anrl manufactured' b;r this firm have more to do wtth thiS_ than the Improvement in bus! ness, for even tf trmes are hard and business bad people will use the best articles in the tobacco line they can procure. -We also a pl easant visit from Mr. M.

The firm are the of a valuable patent for cigar manufacturers. UNIFORMITY OF TAX.-At a meeting of the Cigar Manufacturers' Association, of Baltimore, Md., held on August 4, 1879, a resolution approving of the follow circular, which was drawn up by a committee ap pomted for that purpose, Wl.l8 adopted:-To the Cigar Manufacturera of the United Statea. Artic!e 1, Constitution of the Umted States says: "The "Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, "duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and pro vide for the common defence and general welfare of "the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises "shall j>e uniform throughout the United States.'' This is explicit and leads us at once to ask if uniformity exists in the present excise on tobacco. If in the consideration of our interests, we take as a basis the twenty-five (25) lbs of leaf in the manufac ture of one thousand ( 1,000 ) cigars, we find that the late reduction of tax in favor of manufactured tobacco only operates to our sel'ious disadvantage, as we are still paying the old tax of twenty-four (24) cenw per lb., or six (6) dollars perM. when rightfully we shoUld not pay more than sixteen (16) cents per lb., or its equivalent, which would be four (4) dollars perM.on our manufactures. We therefore call upon all inter ested to petition Congress to reduce the tax on cigars to four (4) dollars per thousand, and so preserve the uniformity that we believe the Constitution of the country guarantees us.
