CAN'T FOOL CUSTOM TASTERS
Uncle Sam's Tariff Sleuths Usually
Come Off Viotors.
DUELS OF EYES AND WITS
Shady Importers of Foreign Goods
Try Many TVnya of Dodglnit
the Tax and Get Into
Lynx-eyed Uncle Sam has a busy time
of it making our cross-sea cousins behave
when they shunt their coffees, teas, silks,
sugars, spices, tobaccos and clothing
across tho AUantlc. That Inborn desire
of the Orientals, not to mention our Eu
ropean brothers, to get the better of the
western hemisphere Is a duel of eyes and
wits nnd compels the United States gov
ernment to keep LOOO men working 212
days In the year In a ten-story warehouse
building on the lower west side, New
York City. They are the watchdogs of
tho freo-born American pockctbook, and
If It wasn't for them It would be looted
from right to left.
Experience Is a stem teacher, 'but In
all the years Uncle Sam has been disci
plining our eastern nelehbora thv h.v,ni
learned their lesson. The mania to get

and more of the venturesomo other-sldo

It keeps Undo Samuel's corps of trusted
"boys" a tasting and a testing from
morning till night, Just to keep the Amer
ican public's stomach from being ruined,
their pockets frow being unwittingly
Picked and, Incidentally, grabbing the
government's Just duties.
Suffice It to say there is no better or
ganized corps of fraud detectors or value
fixers at any port of the world. Many
of them aro "old heads" In the business
and they can scent crookedness In an
"honor-bright, sworn to God" consign
ment of merchandise with the cunning of
a fellno at a mouse hole.
An Immense Task.
More than $1,500,(100,000 worth of mcr
chandlse was Imported into this country
last year, and of that amount nearly S
Per cent, or more than $1,000,000,000 worth,
entered at the port of New York.
Everybody in general has a good deal
to say as to how much duty should bo
imposed on the varlouB importations. But
the actual work Is accomplished, not op
the piers, not at the architecturally beau
tiful custom houses, but In tho appraiser's
warehouse. Tim general public has little
knowledge of how theso custom Inspectors

a,nd to see that each Is classified accord

One of the clerks at the stores receives
the Invoice of the foreign exporter, and
from that he estimates -tho preliminary
duties. But the law requires 10 per cent,
or ope case of merchandise) out of ten,
to be taken to the appraiser's storo for
The entry clerk designates the ten cases
he considers are most representative.
Within forty-eight hours the other 90 per
cent is on Its way to the Importer. The
law requires and the theory is that he
hold this Intact, but, owing -fo business
necessities, this has become a dead letter.
Tho goods are carted to the store at the
government's expense, and there they
are distributed among thp respective
noors. At tho head of the tremendous
customs orgonlratlon, which examines
goods ranging from radium to toothpicks,
is the appraiser, Frederick A. Hlggtns,
and the special deputy appraiser, Henry
M. Clapp. There also
pralsers and seven assistant appraisers.
The organisation is divided into seven
grana divisions. One concerns Itself with

Secretary oi the Parmer' Irrigation Dis
lln and Vienna are read from cover tj

probable movement of tho market, up or
down, in silks, laces, linens, etc. Th
gem experts study the statistics ot dla
mond production in South Africa.
Tke appraiser not only has to knot
vnlues, but ha has to know goods at
well. For instance. In the textiles de
partment, the examiner must be able tt
tell whether a- piece of goods contains cot
ton, linen or silk, and In what propor
tion. Having determined this, he must
know, the quality of the material. If It
Is silk, he must determine whether the
silk is artificial or natural; if silk, what
kind of silk, and where It comes from.
If he is in doubt about the matter, he
refers a sample to the laboratory, where
the fabrio Is subjected to a chemical
test In order to determine, accurately,
its composition. So careful are they In
the examination of textiles that the
threads In tho article aro counted and
the yarns tested, while In laces and in
embroideries, such as those from St. Gall,
Switzerland, for Instance, oven the num
ber ot stitches In tho pattern are counted.
Work In the Ten Room.
Take the examination of tea: no duty
Is levied on ten, but all of It must bt
pure to enter this country. In tho tea
room of the stores, 100,000 samples ot ten
must be tested per year, which repre

During the test of the tea many cups,
are set upon a table. ach cup containing
a different sample of tea Identified by n
number at the bottom of the cup, and ont
sample of the standard tea. '
The examiner arranges the cups accord,
lng to -the color and taste, and after the
grading Is done the samples ore thrown
awny and the cups turned upside down
to show the Identifying' numbers. All th
samples on one side of the standard are
pasped as good tea, while those on the
other side are rejected.
To make sure that no error has beer
mado the test Is repeated with a second
set of samples, and In order to detect any
pigment tho leaves are mashed on a piece
of white paper, which Is next examined
with a microscope for faint spots of col
One of the most tedious tests Is thai
of sugar. The tariff on sugar depends
upon tho proportion of cano sugar tho
samples contain, and this is determined
accurately by means of a polarlscopc,
which analyzes the light that passe!
through samples of the sugar syrup.
Tho chemical laboratories are constantly
engaged testing liquors to find tho pro
portion of alcohol used, while metals are
searched chemically for their alloys, van
adium, titanium, chromium and other un
pronounceable and unheard of constit

made, and groceries, liquid and solid, are
weighed, measured and analyzed.

MUNICIPAL COAL OIL JOHNNY
How New York la niowlni; the
Money nnd Piling Up
Since 1898, the birth year of Greater
New York, the city budget has swollen
from $77,473,054 to $192,703,342 In 1913.
In fifteen years the budget has trrown
160 per cent.
In 1S9S the estimated population of tho
city was 3,350,000, The estimated popula
tion In WIS was 6.17S.084.
In fifteen years tho population hn In.
creased 53 per cent.
In 1S98 the city debt wns $311,844,213,
The city debt in 1912 was $1,117,153,093. This
outside ot certain bonds.
In fourteen years the debt Increased
227 per cent.
The Sun Invites the grave consideration
of the citizens of New York, without
distinction of party, to these ominous
figures and percentages.
It Is true that by a continuous arti
ficial Jacking up of assessments on real
and personal properties Ihclr valuation
has risen nominally from $3,031,604,719 In
1S98 to $S.aM,SC2,430 In 1912, or 160 per cent
In fourteen years; but even this futile
forcing process haa exhausted Itself.
It Is too notorious that the so-called
taxable value ot real estato Is often ab
surdly above the actual value; and be
tween 1911 and 1912 even the assessed
value fell. Under tha pressure of over
taxation and overassessment real estate
sags. It needs rost and time to recuper
ate. Remember that while tho nominal in
crease in property valuation has been
its per cent, the actual Increase in the
debt has been 2-7 per cent.
New schemes for fattening iha budtret
and the debt; new holes in which to throw
away the taxpayers' money; extrava
gance on extravaganco, a burden on the
present and a mortgage on the future;
this Is the municipal flnanco of Now

city throws away money as recklessly as
