FIRST FKU1TS OF THE TARIFF IVW
No one oonsulors it quite fair to judge a
1arilT law before it really has hail time to take
full effect. But the official figures on imports
during the first four months of the new law,
and the recent net and statements of leaders
in certain important industries affected by the
revision have enabled some of our editors to
make up their minds about what the reduction
is doing, and even to venture some predictions
as to what it is likely to do, remarks the Liter
ary Digest. Speaking generally, and mindful
of certain important exceptions, these obser
vers find that, on the whole, the Underwood
Tariff has so far accoinplishd little, either for
good or ill. Its beginnings, declares the New
York Sun (Ind.), "show loss of revenue, de
creased importations of raw and partly manu
factured materials in many great industries,
stimulated and enlarged importations of food
stuffs do not seem to have brought the con
sumer any appreciable reduction in the cost
of living, nor are the big industries thought to
generally prosperous and confident of keeping'
tm'ir grip on' t lie domestic market and even of
reaching out into foreign fields. The consum
er and the farmer alike ruy find food for
thought in the statements showing that the
meat importations in th first quarter under
the new tariff are almost infinitesimal compar
ed with the national consumption for that
period- Sugar producers and refiners ure; in
deed, complaining, partly because of the "tar
iff uncertainty." And it might bo said that
some protectionist papers warn their readers
that despite the small apparent damage, the
worst is sure to come. Imports did not leap
as they are expected to, admits the Xew York
Press (Prog.), perhaps because we had no
money to pay for them, but "it will not bo
very long before the United States will bo dig
ging deep down into its jeans to pay its for
eign bills of hundreds of millions of dollars a
year!" The Kansas City Journal (Rep.) like
wise warns its largely constituency that the
country is about to bo Hooded "with imported
foodstuffs and with imported manufactures,
thereby reducing both the farmer's income
and the consumer's ability to buy the products
of the farm.
The decision by Judge Cleeton of Multno
mah County in the tax-penalty case will doubt
less meet with the approval of the taxpaying
public generally, Imt the law as construed by
Judge Cleeton is still defective. It does not,
as he interprets it, offer any inducement to the
property owner to pay one-half his taxes be
fore April 1. He can let all payments go until
August 31 without penalty. Such a law firmly
established by the highest court construction,
would result in the payment of practically no
taxes before August 31. Instead of the tax
payer being individually injured the public
would then be the sufferer. "While the various
be facing ruin as a result of foreign competi- branches of government do not need all the

Ave find the New York Journal of Commerce
asserting that the steel business "had nothing
to fear from the tariff changes and has not
"been perceptibly affected by them." The tex
tile trades were noticeably hit, but seem to be
should have an installment plan for paying
taxes, and without penalty. Plainly there is
some repair work to be done on the law at the
next Legislature, regardless of whether the
Multnnomah Judge's decision holds.
Silver Lake Items

Woodrow Wilson (not President
Wilson) of Lake, was registered at
the Hotel Chrisman Saturday.
F. M. Chrisman has opened a

buz-wagon, making the trip up from
Paisley Monday In four hours. Tues
day morning he left Silver Lake with
the intention of making the round

know the "brute" and stopped at
Dry lake about seven hours. Earl
never swore or anything else but just
waited while one of the boys walked
to some place to get a can of oil. The
round trip was made in about sixteen
hours, but it is hoped that a bad be
ginning will end well.
