CAN DO NO REAL GOOD
IDEA OF TARIFF COMMISSION A
Well Described by the New York
Journal of Commerce as a "De
lusion and a Snare" Sub
ject Too Partisan.
The New York Journal of Com-
nerce , which has always doubted the
ralue of the tariff commission's worth ,
thinks that it is better to keep the
present tariff board than to adopt any
of the changes which have been pro
posed in congress. Of the Longworth
bill for a bipartisan commission of five
members , not more than three of
whom shall be of the same party , it
'That kind of device Is a delusion
and a snare , and unless we can have
a tariff commission made up of eco
nomic experts and free from partisan
bias , we may as well leave the matter
to the regular committees of congress.
It will come to the same thing in the
end. The majority of the committee
.will control the investigations and the
recommendations , and the minority
twill be impotent. "
Concerning tEe suggestion that the
work be turned over to a tariff bu
reau with a singje head in one of the
administrative departments , prefera
bly the treasury , the Journal says :
"That would be no less one-sided.
So long as the administration is de
voted to a certain tariff policy its bu
reaus would work for the support and
not for the reform of that policy.
There would he no independence in its
inquiries and no value in its recom
mendations. The bureaus oi the vari
ous departments have all along been
working in behalf of the established
tariff. The consular service of the
state department , the bureau of manu
factures and the bureau of statistics
In the department of commerce and
labor are continually furnishing ma
terial to support the policy of the ad
ministration , which has heretofore
been the policy of congress in the
matter of tariff , as of everything else.
Independent investigation and compe
tent criticism are not to me expected
of an official bureau. "
In other words , in the official bu
reaus , as In congress , party policy is
regarded as of a good deal more impor
tance than public policy. Like mas
ter , like man , and the important thing
In the eyes of bureau or other politi
cal employes is , first , to hold their
jobs , and , second , In order , to hold
their jobs , to keep the party in its job.
To attain this end it must be made to
appear that whatever the party does
Is right. Thus it can hardly be ex
pected that a bipartisan commission ,
which can be controlled by a majority
of partisans , or a partisan bureau ,
would be of much service in the in
vestigation of a subject so intensely
partisan as the tariff.
Former Senator Smith of New Jer
sey says he is for "a just tariff , " but
of course that is a misprint. What he
Is really for is just tariff.
The Bath Trust Indictments.
President Taft gives warning in his
message of a vigorous enforcement of
the Sherman act against all dangerous
or harmful trusts. There is to be no
"running amuck , " of course , but the
question of desirable modifications of
the act is not to be permitted to block
the prosecution of wilful builders of
The Detroit indictments in the bath
tub and sink trust furnish an illustra
tion of the meaning of the trust para
graphs of the message. Assuming
that the department of justice has the
facts "straight , " the defendants could
not in any event expect the smallest
benefit from amendments of the Sher-
.man law. If they had no other pur
pose than that of fleecing consumers ,
destroying competition , dictating to
jobbers , raising prices regs.rdless of
any economic considerations ; if there
was no thought of saving and improv
ing and sharing gains of combination
with consumers , then the trust was of
the sort that should be dissolved in
the interest of honest and legitimate
commerce. The criminal indictments
are of the sort that bring home the
truth that conscious violation of the
law means personal guilt. Chicago
A Committee of Lawyers.
It Is observed that every Demo
cratic member suggested for the next
ways and means committee of the
house , except one , is a lawyer. The
exception is M. R. Denver of Ohio , who
is classed as a "farmer banker. " That
there should be men of affairs on such
a committee as well as lawyers would
naturally be supposed.
The make-up of this committee , how
ever , Is typical of that of congress.
Few occupations save that of the legal
profession are represented in the
house. This lopsidedness of representa
tion is unfortunate. But until more
business men are willing to take part
'n public life , it seems inevitable.
Party's Faith Not Kept.
The present tariff law was enacted
in pursuance of a pledge to revise the
tariff downward. The violation of the
pledge was so flagrant that a number
of Republican senators and repre
sentatives voted against the bill on its
final passage. Such is the record , and
such are the results of tariff revision
by the friends of the tariff. In not one
of these cases was faith kept with the
people. In not one was there fair ,
reasonable and downward revision of
SHALL MEATS BE UNTAXEDi
Dominant Party Has It In Its Power tc
at Once Secure Relief From
If there had heen ten lines in tht
president's message on the high cos *
of living , with a recommendation it
simple justice that meats be placed or
the free list , does anybody suppose
that the beef trust would have ad
vanced prices ? A cornered market responds
spends quickly to every Impulse and
tendency. The protest at the polls in
November was understood. So also
was the silence at the White House in
December. Both found a response in
the monopoly's price list.
A like degree of intelligence on the
part of the people's representatives at
Washington would develop a policy as
to this particular trust which could be
carried out in 60 days.
Strangely enough in the legislative
department the Insurgent Republicans
appear to-have agreed to attack only
the wool schedule of the tariff. Of
this Senator Aldrich said on May 4 ,
1909 : "It Is the very citadel of the pro
tective system. To reduce that is to
destroy the whole system. "
In a way every important tariff
schedule is a citadel of monopoly and
bargaining , but meats are as yet only
an outpost and tiose who would serve
the people in their need will not ex
haust their energies upon a strong
hold when the weaker defenses of an
iniquity quite as objectionable invite
assault. The tariff citadel may be im
pregnable. The camp of the be
leaguered meat trust should be rushed
in a hurry.
The Meat Trust and the Tariff.
The total business of the six great
meat-packing companies amounts to
$945,000,000 a year. The profits , ex
clusive of those of the National Pack
ing company , are set at $23,379,644.
Estimating the profits of the National
Packing company as * equal to those
of Sulzberger & Sons , the total would
be raised to about $25,000,000.
Some of the detailed figures are as
impressive as the totals. When a con
cern like Swift & Co. , can progress
from a $10,000,000 capital to upward
of $80,000,000 in about sixteen years ;
when Armour & Co. , after paying big
dividends , can pile up a surplus of
$73,000,000 ; when other companies in
the combine make almost as notable
showings , it is clear the profits are
With such figures before them , how
can even the standpatters of congress
pretend that protection is needed for
the meat trust ? The tariff confers
monopoly of the home market and the
monopoly is used to exact from the
people excessive prices for ons of the
most important necessaries of life.
Those are the plain facts of the
matter. There is no need for an elab
orate investigation by a tariff commis
sion with a year of delay. There is
time enough for this congress to re
peal the tax on meat and give the people
ple immediate relief. New York

Public Money Wasted.
In Kansas , according to Auditoi
James M. Nation , "thousands of dollars
lars are wasted every year in printing
reports and documents that have no

state officers. " Nobody has ever had
the courage to calculate how much
money Is misspent and thrown away
In the government printing office at
Idea a Mere Makeshift.
The Democratic principle of a rev
enue tariff needs no commission at all
to apply it , and the task of framing
the schedules would be comparatively
simple. If the theory of protection is
once admitted to be right , much may
be said In favor of a commission. Butte
to those who deny this proposition the
commission can appear only as a

Well , well , if Judge Anderson de
served the opprobrious epithets he
was favored with from the greatest

phrases for this same man to apply to

united in rejecting the fantastic inter
pretation of the law evolved by the
mighty Bonaparte of Baltimore to get
an alleged libel , published in New
York , under the jurisdiction of the fed
