EFFECTS OF THE NEW TAX IN GEBMANY. From the. province of Posen in Germany it is r eport e d that t h e effects of the n e w tax on tobacco recently enacted by tlie G erman Parliament are already seve rel y f elt among t)le laboring cl asses, although it is only two months since t h e embargo l a w has been enforced. and domesti\} tobacco has not yet b een subjecte d to the n ew tax. Heretofore the consumption of t o bacco among the laboring classes has been mainly confin e d to stems and scraps produced by the manufacture of c igars, whic h cou ld b e bought for 13marks 50 centimes to 15 marks per cwt., and cons equently could be sold by the r etailer at 12 centimes per pound. But now the price is 40 to 42 m arks p e r hunured, and the consumer c::tnuot buy his tobacco for less than 50 centime s p e r pound ; accordingly the pipe of the poor man," a phrase which during the late Parliamentary procee d ings has been frequently used with so much effect, 'already costs him cons iderably According to estimates, assumingthat a person consumes about a half a pound per week, the laboring man has an addi tional expense of 7 marks 80 centimes per year if he THE PARSEE AND THE TOBACCO REGIES. Mr. J. S. Moore, an attache of the New York Custom H ouse, and long favorably known to readers of F'ree Trade literature in this country as tho "Parsee Mer chant," with a nom de plume which we have forgotten how to spell as he use d to spell it, and which only him self, p erha ps was capable o f pronouncing, has been writing a letter, which is r eproduce d in another column, to the Evening Post, about the R eg i e tobacco contracts and the evil effect they are having upon the r eputation of leaf tobacco grown in the United States. The Parsee, during t h e pas t fifteen years, has been striking some sturdy blows at our incongruous, and, in some in stancee, oppressive national tariff, and has had the satisfaction of seeing a m1mber of changes made in it which lie has r ecommended in the public journals and in the committee rooms of C ongress as in the interest of trade, commerce and the p eop le. To the force and logic o f his pen, more probably than to any other one cause, i s due the r ecent abolition of the duty on quinine, for which service he deserv es th e thanks of every present and prospectively sick man, woman and child within the dominion of his adopted U ncle Samue l. E..-ery now and then a Congress ion a l Comm ittee goes poking a r ound in the Custom H ouse and tries to find out what the Parsee' s special function is in tliat famous institution, but this impertinent interference with his pri v ate affairs n either ruffles the placid temper of the clever merchant from Bombay, nor checks his his unc e asing pursuit and exposure of the cunning de vices incorporated with our r evenue system for the purpose of enriching monopolists and impoverishing the rest of mankind. He is a p ersistent worker in the cause of Right, as h e perceives that attribute embodied or neglected in our customs policy; and he is the im placable fo e of wrong; as that hydra-headed monste1 is presented i o his ment::Ll vision in that particular policy or any other. }j'eeling a just pride in the whilom good reputation of our domestic tobaccos, he is naturally pained to its luster becoming gradually dimme d by the avarice of the Regies of France, Italy and Spain, or their r e presentatives, and the implied sharp practice of the contractors. He accordingly "goes" for. all hands with his c haractf)ristic vim. Nearly every tobacco rner cha)lt reads the E vening P ost, just as everybody read s TnE ToBACCo LEAF and this latest emanation from the fecund brain of the Parsec has been duly scanned and noted. All agree that h e has made his point s with his customary skill, but o pinion i s divided as to the utility, and even the accuracy, of his disclosure. We have interviewed a few r e presentati o;es of the tobacco trade on the subject. says some of the Parsec s figures are wrong, another that he has been "shooting wildly generally." H e re i s what two gentlemen hurriedly said to us:-'' I consider the article aimless, inasmuch as the con tracts are m atters entirely between 'Governments and the contractors: The fault, if there be any fault, does not lie in the inability of the country to produce the tobacco, as we are producing as good Regie tobacco as ever." Nobody really thought it necessary to consider ap provingly or disapprovingly his statements in detail. In substance, the argument of those dissenting from his views was about as follows:-The reputation of SU10":l"ER BROS., DeaJers in LEAF TOBACCO, Chicago, DL WesterD Ci&"ar ManufacturerS wDl Jlnd lt to their adh.nta,ae to deal with q
