The agitation for tariff revision,
which began almost directly follow

must be legarded as one of the most
extraordinary episodes in connection
with American politics. After more
than seven now eleven years of

wholly from the operations of a tariff
law affording needful and adequate
protection to Industry; after moro
than seven years of the largest em
ployment of labor at tho highest wago
rate ever known In tho industrial
history, of any country; after seven
years of business and Industrial ac

conditions, which would ordinarily

sure stability of fiscal and economic
policy, the movement for tariff revi

Preliminary plans were made, follow

Intellectual Bengali to tho anarch
A few years ago tho overfed, much-
oiled greasy Bengali babu was an ob-
lect of contempt to tho moro wariiKO
European settlers or trans-frontier
tribes. Todny tho Bengali is willing
to lay down his luo for tho political
faith that Is In him.
Ono Is led thus to reflect In connec
tion with an nwful affair which oc
curred In tho Allpool Jail, Calcutta,
during tho week. Tho recent bomb
outrages In tho Indian capital and tho
discovery of bomb ractorlcs win be
fresh in the, minds ot all. Tho trial ot
the accused In theso cases ls still pro
gressing, and tho Government had con
gratulated Itself on gottlng ono of the
accused to turn informer or "approv
er," as ha Is locally called. That In
former's evidence led to wholesale ar
rests. Naturally the Government took
care ot 30 valuable an asset, and
lodged him for security In the hos
pital attached to the Jail at Allpool,
Calcutta. In that Jail lay a majority
of tho accused.
Two of thoso accused recently be
came 111 and wcro transferred to the
hospital In which tho Informer lived.
Last Monday as tho Informer went to
a hydrant to drink water from cup
shaped hands, as Is tho practlco with
those people, he was shot several
times by tho two Invalid accused, who
had tracked him Into the hospital
"compound" for tho purpose. On an
arrest being attempted by two Euro
pean convicts doing duty as wardens,
theso also were shot but not fatally.
Tho Informer died a few minutes nfter
receiving his wounds.
The jail authorities aro perturbed
over the Incident to a point of panic.
An' Immediato examination of all po
litical offenders In tho prison disclosed
no less than seven revolvers In their

volvers smuggled In! Clearly the po
