FAIL TO ATTEND. that objec t Co ngre ss is now in session, and the As will be seen from oar report in another place, the sooner it is made aware of the fa.ct that such reduction members of the New York Leaf Tobacco Board of Trade is expected the better. After the holiday interreg are r emiss in their attendance at the monthly meetings nuo. n it will probably tak(;l u p in succession some of of that orgaDizatio n Omissions of this kind are com the numerous bills-over three thousand in all-intro moninall branches of busine sf!, and have to be accepte d duced at the extra session, and it will then b e more .as among the things that cannot h elped and 'that difficult than at any time prior to get the ear and s up are 'due to the inherent "cussedness" of human nature. port o f n i embers of the t wo houses: When the Board waB first o r ganized there was r eason To get a bill involving a lower tax than the present to hope its utility would be so apparent as to attract a one through this winter, is going to require full representation of its enrolled members on every more effort than may be generally supposed, and the regular meeting day, and f o r the sake of the good it is initial m oveme n t s hould commence as early as practi capabl e of accomplishing, it is to be regretted that cable. Th e measure will be opposed at e-;:ery step, not the expectations thus formed seem unlikely to be only by the Secnta: y of the Treasury and the Com realized. missioner of Internal Revenue, but by Representatives The derelict members, if called to accountability, and SenatorS, many of whom will claim that they voted would probably offer the exc use that they are generally for the sixteen-cent tobacco tax under the supposition too busy at this of the year to attend trade that the cigar tax was to continu e a t six dollars per meetings, and the more especially as there is apparently thousand. Friends of the measure have to be sought nothing of s pecia l importance to be done whe n they out in Congress, and opponents there have to be co n get there. Such an excuse, though natural, is not a vinced that it is both unjust and unreaso nabl e to dis satisfactory one, because time enough may b e taken criminate, as is now done-not only in cigars, but for the purpose once a month without pre j u dice toper-cigarettes as well-between tobacco which happens to sonal interests. Moreover, the principal office rs, whq be made up into chewing and smoking tobB.?cos, and are, d o ubtles s, quite as busy as the r es t are expected snuff, and that whic!i is converted into cigars and t o be-present ahvays, _ang wouldnotreadilybeexcused cigarettes. If sixtee n cents a pound i s a proper if they made themselves conspicuous by persistent a b tax for tobacco and snuff-and it is high enough sence The o l d sa.ymg "What is sau ce f o r the goose -it is a proper tax for cigars and s h ould be sauce fo r the gander" appli es with force As will be seen from the synopsis of CommiS here. Nor is it good ground for exculpatio n to plead sione r Raum's report for the past fiscal year, the lack of specia l business at the Board: There n eve r productio n of cigars, cheroots and cigarettes for that will be any business of importance transacted there if period was 2,27.6,53'4 081, w ,hereof fully 2,100 000,000 the members continue t o stay away from ioo d e lib e r a -were ciga r s Placing the productio n of the curr ent tio na. The very way to make the business for which year at the same figure, tbe revenue derivabl e from. the Board was organized is for the members to come to-this source at four dollars p e r 'thousand would be gether and views The Board is excep$9,106,136 With one -half the present rate for cigar t ionally well officered, has a full and competent staff ettes, the revenue from1 cigars and cigarettes wo4ld o f comni.ittees and a membership that embraces most be $10,000,000. Thi s amoun t is enough from these of.the SeeJ leaf and Havana tobacco merchants of this branches of the cigar industry. and it is only r easo nabl e to-expect from an organThe cigar and cigarette trades should begin to move ization so favorably co nstituted work that will enure in this matter in New cYork and outside of it. to the advantage, not only of the organization itself, but of t h e leaf tra d e at large. A NEW USE FOR TOBACCO STEMS: THE CIGAR TAX. If cigar manufacturers contemplate, as it is supposed they, do, making an effort to get the cigar tax reduced to four dollars p e r thousand, it would appear as if the time had come w hen they should b egin to -work for A oorr esJX>ndent writing from Spe-yer, in the Palatinate, reports that of late buyeJ,"S have' made their !lflpearance in that locality purchaBing large quantities of tobacco stems.' It is reported that'these stems -are exported to England, where they are used by pigeon raisers. The stems are

N'or was the able mcrease m the demand for these steiDS, and recorunderat10n of this or Its kmdred subJect previously ports tbat a regular trade m them has sprung up. In referred to the abJect of this article. As our capt1on Speyer are stored about 12,000 cwts and the quantity mdwates, our purpose m th1s mstance 18 to tell buyers is increased by rece1pts from day to day from Baden. to go ahead and buy all they want, just as they are The Pala tmate, says the Courter, is already exhausted. trying to do, desp1te the protestatiOnS of the '' unco" Some of the tobacco growers, 1t IS satd, refused to wise.

If the cernmg the same are mdulged m. product of 1879 reach-as we ourself have estimatedIt should be ment10ned here that tobacco stems of 250,000 cases, the supply will, to be sure, be large, but late have also been used m the production of a new 1t can be carr1ed Without mconveruence, even if the chemwal substance, wh1ch has found application m export continue small next year, whteh 1t will not if medicme It 1s a chrystaline substance, which, how-pnces be within reason. Let us see. Messrs. Gans & ever, differs from the nicotme. While the mcotme 1s Co. estimated last January the crop of 1878 at 156,000 abstracted from the leaves of tobacco, the new subcases, to which they added 26,000 cases old crops, stan9e is obtained from the stems, and it is fii!Id th!'t making together 182,000 cases. The sales m this mty important results have heen accomplished by lts ap r December 1 thiS calendar year were 83,435 cases, plicatiOn m med1cme.

The total speCie value of the foreign commerce of the Umted States-imports and exportswas larger than dunng any previOUS year, with the ex ception of the years 1873 and 1874. The value of the exports / of domestiC merchandise from the Umted States was larger than durmg any previous fiscal year m the hiStory of the country.

Heremoved to Utica N. Y where he studied for the Bar in the office of the late Wilham H. Seward, whose fnend ship he retamed throughout the lif e of that statesman. Mr Sanford subsequentl:ycame to this mty anq en gaged m the practiCe of h1s professiOn, which he a ban doned m a few years m order to engage m the manage ment of a manufacturmg company at Stamford, Ct and known as the Stamford Manufacturmg Company, producers of hcorwe, eseent1al o ils, fiavonng extracts, etc. In. th1s corporat10n he contmued to be a d1rector and shareholder unt1l h1s death. Notmg Mr Sanford's death, the New York Ttmes of Dec. 3 says -Mr Sanford's native State was Vermont, one of tho most anCient and distmgmshed families m the State bemg that of whteh h e was one of the New York representatives Born m 1806, Mr Sanford entered Yale College m 1827, and was graduated With a brilliant record m the Class of '31, of which he was one of tlie few survivmg represent"'ttves. Immedi ately after rece1vmg h1s degree he removed to the mty of Ut1ca, and was registered as a student of law m the offic e of Wilham H. Seward, then a nsmg lawyer m this State A warm fnendship soon sprang up between preceptor and pup1l durmg the three years of Mr l::lanford s pupllagf' Havmg been adm1tted to the Bar, however, the brilliant young lawyer did not find "pent up Uttca" a suffiCiently ample theatre for the exercise of h1s professiOnal amb1t10n, and naturally graVItated towards New York-then as now the mtel lectual center of the State. In 1835 Mr Sanford opened an office here and began the practice of hiS profession. H1s success had already been assured by the happy issue of cases of considerable mterest mti-usted to him by infiuential clients, when a more lucratiVe oppor tumty m busmess attracted hiS attentiOn, and he abandoned the law to engage m the management of the manufacturmg company to which he afterward devoted his talants. Jllr. Sanford was known in literary and artiStic Circles as a patron, and had acqmred a considerable collectwn ofpamtmgs, engravmgs, and other obJects of art. In old days hill house was the home of Mr. Seward dunng hiS VISits to this City, and the center of a gemal and cultivated circle. In personal appearance Mr Sanford was a tall, portly man, with a d1gnified bearmg. His gemal courtesy and dry New England humor rendered him extremely entertaining and compamonable as an assoCiate, and h1s sterling mtegnty, candor, and :fine Judgment a valuable fr1end and adv1ser. His wife survives h1m, and the three children, all now adults, succeed to his magnificent fortune. --'------An Issue of the Partition Question. BALTI!IORIC, Dec. 2 1879.
