Cashman Bill Delayed.
The Cashiznan distance tariff bill
has.been put over until Feb. 20 for
action in the senate. It appears that
the state railroad and warehouse
commission has been asked to furn
ish certain statistics and that the
commission'needs time hr which to
comply.* The fullest possible inves
tigation should be made before this
bill is acted upon in order that both
the railroads and the public will get
a square deal.
Hew Feature of Old' Plan.
Down in Maine there is a little
town by the name of Fort Kent which
found itself in debt to the tune of
$21,000 three years ago. The town
raised but $25,000 a year in taxes
and felt that something was wrong as
the deficit has takon but a few years
One Jean O. Michaud was asked
to take the chairmanship of the board
of selectmen and try to get the town
out of debt. He, however, refused
to take it unless they would" elect
him as Well to the position of road
commissioner, overseer of the poor,
school commissioner and whatever
other administrative offices the town
charter called for. His proposition
was accepted, and he wars elected to
these various offices, the only other
two officers of importance in the
town being the two selectmen who
worked with him.
At the end of two years' time the
town was entirely out of debt and
this year it expects to have some
surplus to put into permanent im
provements, this all being done with
out raising any more taxes than for
merly. The success was'due to bet
ter management and closer supervis
ion of expenditures.
The principal involved in the elect
ing of Michaud to all the important
offices is the same as that involved
in the commission form of govern^
ment, namely, the fixing of respon
sibility. Michaud was responsible
for the affairs of Fort Kent and he
had to make good. The commission
form of government is slowly gain
ing ground and it is worthy of no
tice that where the plan has once
been tried, there has been no return
to the old form.
January Bank Clearances.
"The remarkable expansion in
payments through the banks, as re
flected in bank clearings, of the clos
ing month of 1912 at practically all
leading centers of the country, was
fairly well maintained in January,
the total, according to statistics com
piled from 128 cities, aggregating
$16,247,791,726, an increase of 7.5
per cent, as compared with the same
month last year and of 12.6 per cent,
compared with the corresponding
month in 1911. Every section, ex
cept New England, into which the
statement is divided, shows gain, and
in some, notably the Southern, Cen
tral and Western states, it is large,
reflecting clearly the maintenance of
commercial and industrial activity in
"Although comparative dulness
was a feature in the-' stock and other
speculative markets at New York,
that city reports a gain of 5.7 per
cent over last year and 9.5" per cent
over 1911, indicating a gratifying
volume of transactions in ordinary
business channels, while the total of
all outside cities is 9.9 per cent, and
17.0 per cent, respectively, larger
than tii either preceding year
"In New 'England bank clearings
at Boston" "dhow' some* contraction,
but most of the other cities report
more or'less increase and the section,
as a whole, as a result of the favor
able returns from Springfield, Wor
cester, Hartford,. Providence and
other centers, make* a fairly satis

and 1811. Pronounced"gains at Phil

Middle- Atlantic states reflect the
stimulating effect of activity in thement,
iron and steel trade and nearly every
important industry, the total being
considerably'^ in excess of either last
year or two years ago.
"Generally satisfactory conditions
throughout the South Atlantic states
are indicated by the gain in extained
changes at Baltimore, Richmond,
Norfolk Columbia, Jacksonville and
other cities, the total for the entire
section being 5.3 per cent in excess
of the same week a year ago and 17.5
per cent larger than in 1911.
The returns from the cities of the
Central South give evidence of well
maintained activity in that portion of
the country, most centers, among
them St. Louis, Louisville, Nashville,
Chattanooga, Birmingham, Galves
ton, Houston and Little Rock, re
porting good gains and the total be
ing well above either previous year.
Marked expansion at all the leading
centers in the Central states, ex
changes at Chicago, Cincinnati,
Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, To
ledo, Grand Rapids and many other
important points being larger than in
any previous corresponding period,
testify eloquently to the notable ac
tivity that prevails in all commercial
and industrial lines and the 'total
shows a substantial increase com
pared with both years.
