WASHINGTON, Sept. 28. The de
mand for tariff revision anions Eastern
Republicans, which has resulted in the
selection of revisionists in some East
ern districts, takes an entirely diiierent
turn from that of tiie West. The men
who are insisting that the tariiT ahull he
revised ia the East are not paiticuUr
about having anv manufactured
products touched. They are demand
ing coal, iron ore, hides, wool and other
raw materials for the purpose of en
couraging Western manufactures. In
the Middle West the demand seems to
be that the duty shall be taken oil the
manufactured products, especially those
which are sold in foreign countries
cheaper than they are at home. That
the Western idea will prevail seems
quite probable, as free raw materials
never had much support except along
the Atlantic seaboard.
That the demand for tariff revision
will grow instead of diminish is appar
ent when some important facts become
known in the whole country. For in
stance, it is found that Belgian steel for
the buildings at the St. Louis Exposi
tion can pay the duty at 15 per ct-nt less
than the cost if furnished from the steel
truBt in this country. It is said that
Montana men have been able to buy
American steel that has been shipped
to Manitoba by United States manu
facturers, pay the duty and get it for a
less rate than they coul! before it was
sent out of this country. These re
ports have not been exaggernted. t'i'tiey
will go a long way to popularize .the
Notwithstanding the fact that one
Massachusetts Congressional district
has nominated a Republican who made
his fight on a tan tl revision platform,
Lodge bitterly censures Republicans
who are raising the revision cry and
urging reciprocity with Canada. He
says the latter is impossible, as any at
tempt to treat with Canada will become
involved in the Alaska boundary dispute.

I'rolesI (lie Reserve.
Washington, Sept. i.'5. Many protests
are being received by the General Land
Oflice against the creation of the pro
posed forest reserve in the Blue Moun
tain region of Eastern Oregon, to in
elude the lands recently temporarily
withdrawn from entry. Stockmen com
plain that such a reserve would inter
fere with grazing, and mining interests
assert that the development of the min
eral deposits in the Blue and Straw
berry .Mountains would be materially
retarded if not entirely checked. Some
complaints confine themselves to specific
portions of the withdrawal, pointing out
that various tracts are not eufliciently
valuable for their timber to be em
bodied in a forest reserve. The Geolog
ical survey now has a party examining
the lands under withdrawal to deter
mine what sections, if any, Bhall be
eliminated from the final reserve. It
is assured that a reserve is ultimately
to be created, but final action will not
be taken until all have had an oppor
tunity to be heard. The department
desires to avoid reserving lands not
valuable for their timber, but maintains
that neither the grazing nor the mining
interests will be injured bv the estab
lis'oment of s reserve. The Presidential
proclamation creating the reserve will
probably not be issued for several
months to come.

To Combine School.
Salem, Sept. 25. A law authorizing
school districts to combine and conduct
one school for several districts, is
measure that will be proposed for enact
ment by the next Legislature. A simi
lar law is in force in some of the East
ern states and is found entirely satis
factory. In Ohio suck a law has been
on the statute books for 10 years, and
so successful have the combined dis
tricts been that the people would not go
back to their former method of conduct
ing their schools.
The plan is commonly known as the
centralization of country schools, and
the purpose is to increase the efficency
of the schools by bringing more pupils
together, and thus' providing a larger
fund. Under this plan it is possible to
conduct a school more months in the
year or support more grades with the
expenditure of no more money.
