THE AMERICAN TIN PLATE MANUFACTURERS. The organization called the Association of American Tin Plate Manufacturers, which has never produced any tin plate for sale, has now decided that it cannot produce any till the present duty be made at least a cent per pound higher. The members of the Association are able to consider the advisability of asking the present Congress to increase the duty. There is not the least probability that Congress will grant the request if made. It is much more likely that it will pass a Bill restoring the rate as it existed before the Mc'Kinley Law was enacted. If the Lower House were to do this, however, the Senate would be likely to defeat it. The chances are therefore that the present duty will remain, with no prospect of the American production of tin plates.
