The company consumes daily 700 tons of coal, 100 tons of coke, and 700 tons of limestone; 500 tons of finished material are produced, consisting of soda ash, bicarbonate of soda (baking soda), caustic soda, and Portland cement. The principal buyers of heavy soda ash are the glass factories of Pennsylvania and Indiana, and of light soda ash soap factories. There are only 3 other establishments engaged in this industry at Syracuse, N. Y., Saltville, Va., and Delray, near Detroit.
The manufacture of these products is protected by the tariff. Formerly in the absence of protection there was a very narrow margin of profit. English ash was laid down in the interior of this country at about what was considered the actual cost of manufacture here. The competition between the factories in this country is active, but not ruinous. (72, 79, 80, 85.)
M. American money.—Mr. SCHIFF, banker, says that the large amount of American money in existence to-day has been partly taken out of the earth in gold and silver. Partly it has been created by the creation of wealth. The bank note represents wealth, and for this reason the Government circulation is not justified, because the Government does not produce anything and should not be the maker of the vehicle of wealth circulation. That function belongs to the banks. (777.)
