Is presumably nothing mora than fa

Certain It la however, that tho Taft

has been abused for tho Payno Tariff

)resldent Trft was sharply criti

declared the Pryna Tariff btll was the
best over patient Critics ot the prea
Idsnt were quck to use this against
tho admlnlstrrtlon, despite the fsct
that this apeec i wsa very hastily pre
pared and not given the consideration
It should have had before delivery.
The president dlctsted this speech on
a train between two stations and It
waa sent out by the press with corres
pondingly littles care, and Indeed, tho
papers received It In all kinds ot
shapes. Prealdent Taft admitted that
had he had ttmo to consider this
speech before Its delivery, as he said
ho should have done, ho would havo
clarified several passages. He still
believes, howuver, the Payne Act, al
though It has Its diortcomlngs, con

predecesaors, nnd It did, as a wholo,

President Tsft Has Cut Kspeneee
During His Term.
President Taft belloves lhat the
business of the American people,
which I tho United Htatea govern
ment, can be run more economically
Hn expeeta an economy commission
will point out ways to effect a consid
erable saving In many of tho depart
ments. The three years of President Taft's
administration has proved that econ
omy Is qullo possible and the prel
dent ha practised thn new policy suc
cessfully, Upon taking office. Prea
Ident Taft warned every cabinet mem
ber, aa well aa tho heads of bureaus,
that they would bo held Individually
responsible for cutting tho expendi
tures under their control.
On July 1st. 10, ihe Taft admin
Istratlon faced a deficit of U,000.000.
Ono year later, this deficit had been
changed Into a surplus of 114.000.000
and by July 1st 1911, tho surplus had
risen to 147,000.000. ThO normal In
crease of Federal expenditures Is
about 4 per cent, each year. Yet the
expenditures, which were 8J.OOO,oOO
during tho fiscal year ending Juno 30,
1909, shrunk within the following year
to 154.000,000, an actual decrease In
stead ot tho normal Increase,
Perhaps the best known economy
effected was tho wiping out of the
snnual deficit In the Postal Depart
ment and another was tho elimination
of wide-spread frauds In the cuetems
service. The noallng down process
