"t see no reason for immediate revision

"Of course, there arc a good many people
who want the t.iriff revised. A large num

to have the schedules lowered on material
produced by the other fellow, but not by
any means on their own. A manufacturer
In one iwrt of the country would le nn
IniiH to have the tariff lowered on the raw
material used by him. but would not lie so
Anxious to have it reduced on tlK- raw ma

Another thing done by the board wag ihe
adoption of the system of weighing pro
poser., y Chief Welghmaster Powell after
a careful study of the systems In use at
other large primary markets of the voun
try. The elevators are to do tholr own
weighing through their own employes, but
all' weights are to be checked by tallvnn n
hired by ths exchange, their duty being to
check not only the figures recorded by tho
scale men. but Hie denomination ot each
weight used. The old system was faulty
end complaints were made against it in
many cases by Individual shippers and by
grain dealers' associations. The adopted
plan already has the unqualified npprovnl
of some of the dealers' organisations.
The new system will Increase the ex
penses of the exchange by alout fii.onn u
year. This is met by raising the weighing
fee on each car from "JS cents to So cents,
tle shipper recel Ing a .benefit of many
times 10 cents by .having an absolute check
on the weight of his grain. The plan will
be put in operation erly in December.
