Ever since the foundation of the I
board of appraisers in 1890, the vart- '
ous administrations in the treasury j
department have been wont to 'ook I
I upon the board as a "bureau of the j
j department, and as such amenable to
j directions from the secretary of the i
I treasury, or his subordinates. This j
j conception has from time to time been
opposed vigorously by some of the
more independent members of the I
board and by importers as well as by !
domestic interests. Not only has the j
secretary of the treasury claimed the J
right to name the president of the
board, but a disposition has existed J

The new tariff, however, changes
all this. Not only is the executive of ,
the board to be named by the Presi. I
dent of the United States, but the
tribunal is given direct authority to j
make its own rules, not alone for the
conduct of routine business, but for 1

Death of the Old Year.
Miserere! toll the bell,
Let the earth send forth a knell,
For a great sonl tafces his flight.
None knows whither, in the night
Stretched upon his snowy bier,
Dying lies the good Old Year;
And upon the ihfdnigftt gale
All may hear his parting wail
Tn the old king's chequered reign
There were mingled Joy and Jin;
Friends proved false, white foes
Sinners many, saints a few
There were hearts- that suffered
Bore it bravely, and were strong;
Hearts there were, so Diaek within,'
I Satan wondered at their srn

All must end where they begin;
Snow which wraps the New Year's
