PAYNE ACT TOO
Critics of Administration Are
Net Informed as to Its
Someone said that when Roosevelt
left the White House and went to
Africa to shoot lions, he left a white
elephant on the hands of President
Taft's administration la the tariff.
Someone said Roosevelt then predict
ed that the tariff would hreak the
political back of his successor. This
is presumably nothing more than fa
ble and folk lore.
Certain it is however, that the Taft
administration has had a whole lot to
contend with in carrying out the plat
form pledge to revise the existing
tariff schedules. The administration
has been abused for the Payne Tariff
bill and it is safe to say that very few
among the many who decried the
passage of this bill in its final form,
had any knowledge of the bill or iU
Other administrations than that of
President Taft have had trouble with
the tariff; what one has not?
President Taft was sharply criti
cised for the Winona speech when he
declared the Payne Tariff bill was the
best ever passed. Critics of the pres
ident were quick to use this against
the administration, despite the fact
that this speech was very hastily pre
pared and not given the consideration
It should have had before delivery.
The president dictated this speech on
a train between two stations and it
was sent out by the press with corres
pondingly little care, and indeed, the
papers received it in all kinds of
shapes. President Taft admitted that
had he had time to consider this
speech before its delivery, as he said
he should have done, he would have
clarified several passages. He still
believes, however, the Payne Act, al
though it has its shortcomings, con
tains less to be criticised than its
predecessors, and it did, as a whole,
revise the existing schedules down
ward, official tables showing an aver
age lowering of rates of 8 per cent.
The Payne Tariff bill was responsi
ble for most of the hostile criticism
directed toward President Taft, since
he has been in his office and yet, this
measure was a substantial gain to the
country. It created a Tariff Board
and a Court of Customs Appeals. It
levied a corporation tax, which pro
duces an actual revenue of $27,000,000,
and at the same time affords the
government access to the books of
all corporations. It gave fair treat
ment to the Philippines, and encour
ages the importation of art objects
for educational purposes, by removing
the duty on such objects.
President Taft was compelled to
work with a hostile house and he
faced always an aggressive faction in
his own party in forming tariff legis
lation. No one could deny his courage
in calling a special session expressly
for tariff legislation to redeem the
platform pledge. No president since
Cleveland has undertaken to do such

President Taft Has Cut Expenses
During His Term.
President Taft believes that the
business of the American people,
which is the United States govern
ment, can be run more economically.
He expects an economy commission
will point out ways to effect a consid
erable saving in many of the depart
mfnt?. The three years of President Taft's
administration has proved that econ
omy is quite possible and the proi.i
der.t has practised the new ioliey suc
cessfully. Upon taking office, Pres
ident Taft warned every cabinet mem
ber, as well as the heads of bureaus,
that they would be held individually
responsible for cutting the expendi
tures under their control.
On July 1st, 1909, the Taft admin
istration faced a deficit of $5C,000,000.
One year later, this deficit had been
changed into a surplus of $14,000,000
and by July 1st, 1911. the surplus had
risen to $47,000,000. The normpl In
crease of Federal expenditures is
about 4 per cent, each year. Yet the
expenditures, which were 1662,000,000
during the fiscal year ending June 30,
1909, shrunk within the following year
to $654,000,000, an actual decrease In
stead of the normal Increase.
Perhaps the best known economy
effected was the wiping out of the
annual deficit In the Postal Depart
ment and another was the elimination
of wlde-epread fraud In the customs
service. The scaling down process

HELP F0n HOMESTEADERS
Leniency For Man Trying To Make
Home Is Recommended.
A radical change in the homestead
laws that will be of marked benefit to
setttlers id the plan of President Taft.
Leniency for the man who is trying to
make a home on idle lands of the
state, included in the various reclama
tion projects, is what President Taft
He intends to modify the law so
that the s-eltJer u;.u.i l.;:id beiug re
claimed need not take up his resi
dence immediately upon filing, but
may wait two years b.s'orc livin? on
his land. During these two years,
however, cultivation must be carried
on. By the time the se't'.er must com
mence living on his land, he can, by
reason of this modification of the law,
make a living from his farm. This
will do anay wtih two weary years
during which, under the present law,
the homesteader usually flnds it ne
cessary to live partly on hope.
The present provision, under which
land is to be paid for in ten annual
Installments will be so niodiiied as to
allow a patent to be issued for the
land at the end of five years cultiva
tion, and three years occupation.
The homebteaders generally will
welcome this change in the law, re
lieving them, as it does, from all en
forced residence on the undeveloped
farm lands during the period when It
ia bardest to make a living. At the
end of five years the new law will
furnish the settler with a title upon
which he can borrow money with
which to oostlnue ths deretopmoct of
