General Message Leaves
Revenue Legislation to
TVASHINCn\}K Dec. 6.—President
Taft will make no further effort to
have congress reduce the tariff. In a !
"general" message to congress, submit
ted today, the president clearly mdi
I cated his Intention of leaving further
• tariff revision to Woodrow Wilson and
the congress fstfc^elected.
"Now that a new congress has been
elected on a platform of tariff for rev
enue only, rather than a protective
tariff, and Is to revise the tariff on that
basis," said the president, "it Is need
less for me to occupy the time of con
gress with arguments or recommenda
tions in favor of a' protective tariff."
This message, the second submitted
by the president Since the present ses
sion began, will be his last of a
general character. It dealt with every
department of the government except
the state department, recommended
much of the legislation which Taft
previously had urged upon the atten
tion of congress, and took up and
discussed at length several subjects
Taft came out strongly against In
dependence for the Philippines, pro- I
posed, he eaid, in a bill now before
congress. He deprecated the new pol
icy of one battleship a year instead
of two, and indorsed again the scheme*
of currency reform proposed by the j
; national monetary commission.
Conservation was lightly touched, j
: the president recommending the
amendment of bills now before con
; press so that waiter power companies
which dam navigable rivers will con
i tribute to the improvement of these
He declared that no radical change
lin the Sherman anti-trust law was
I needed, and praised the supreme court
for its recently announced changes in
rules of equity procedure. In this con
nection the president asked congress
to pass legislation which would allow
the supreme court to formulate rules
of procedure under the common law
In federal courts and predicted that
such action would facilitate Justice In
those courts and reduce the cost of liti
gation to the public.
The Panama canal was dismissed In a
few words, the president prophesying
its opening in the latter half of 1913.
He took occasion, however, to declare
that congress should reward the work
of Colonel Goethals by an appointment
as major general with the provision
that he become chief of engineers when
the term of the incumbent expires. He
made only a brief reference to the dis
pute with Great Britain over the Pan
ama canal act and said that when a
formal protest was lodged against that
act it would be taken up by the United
The army the president discussed at
some length. He praised the army
legislation of the last congress, but
said that provision should be made by
law so that the nation's foreign regi
ments may be always maintained upon
a war footing, andi he urged the pas
sage of the pending militia pay bill, de
signed to make service in the militia
more enticing, and showed that the
home army will be nothing more than
a "skeleton" until congress provides
that it be concentrated in tewer posts
than are now maintained. Hβ urged
also the passage of another bill now
before congress designed to raise
quickly a volunteer army In ease of
President Taft did not approve the
proposal for immediate autonomy for
the Philippines and independence in
eight years, as proposed in a bill
pending in congress.
"In the Philippine islands we have
embarked upon an experiment unprece
dented in dealing with dependent peo
ples," said President Taft. "We are de
veloping their conditions exclusively
for their own welfare. Through the
unifying forces of a common educa
tion, of commercial and economic de
velopment and of gradual participa
tion in local self-government, we are
endeavoring to evolve a homogeneous
people fit to determine, when the time
arrives, their own destiny. We are
seeking to arouse a national spirit and
not, as under the older colonial theory,
to suppress such a spirit. But our
work is far from done. Our duty to
the Filipinos is far from discharged."
For educational, sanitary and politi
cal reasons, the president said, this
country-should not consent to grant in
dependence at this time.
"If the task we have undertaken is
higher than that assumed by other na
tions," continued the president, "its ac
complishment must demand even more
In addition to his advice in regard to
legislation and his opposition to pend
ing measures, the president discussed
the prosperity of the nation, its finan
cial condition and the proposed system
of a national budget showing proposed
expenditures and revenues, and called
attention to the balance In the general
fund of the treasury of almost $170,
--000,000. His remarks on the budgejt I
system, he said, would be submitted to
congress later, accompanied by a model

On the Amendments Tuesday
It is very easy to amend the charter of San Francisco if voters are not fully informed on
ev«ry amendment. And it is very difficult to remove any objectionable amendment when the
voters and tax payers find through experience that some pernicious and _ expensive amend
ment has been passed. There are thirty-seven amendments to be voted upon next Tuesday
Naturally only a few voters will take the time and trouble to study the provisions and effect
of each amendment. The representative commercial and civic bodies of San Francisco ap
pointed committees to act jointly and thoroughly analyze and consider every amendment to be
voted upon. The undersigned, after thorough deliberation, recommend that you vote FOR or
AGAINST the amendments as explained below. The deliberations of these organizations
extended over a considerable period of time, giving each a careful and thorough investigation.
