of politics in which decency is com
bined with efficiency. I hold that the
only way in which a politician can
reaiiy serve his party is by helping
that party efficiently to serve the peo
ple. Because tha senator and the men
who have avted with him nave stood
for this principle, I am glad to be on

reckless fun resulted in the Shetucket

down the river to the city kck and
was taken into the boat, and when
they reached a point near the city
dock at the foot of Rose place it was
decided to continue on down under
Laurel hill bridge.
By the story of Lynch there was
some talk of going down to take the
waves of a boat, but Clarkson began
to rock the boat and considerable wa
ter came in. Clarkson. who could not
swim, although Lynch did not know-
it, asked what to do if the boat sank.
and he was told to swim. Thev had
reached a point below the bridge half
way to the freight house and were di
recting the boat to the rocky shore in
an effort to get out. Lynch was . at
the bow. and Clarkson at the stern. As
it came near to the bank Lynch was
able to jump ashore, but as he did so
Clarkson fell overboard He floun
dered about in the water for some
tim- but made no outcries, and for a
time it was thought he could swim.
Help was asked for from the freight
house but he went down before they
arrived The Lynch boy from the
bank tried to reach him, but was un
able to, and those witnessing it stated
that it would have meant the death
of both boys had he got in reach of the
Clarkson boy, who was large and
Efforts were startedi at once to get
the body and Policeman Henderson
was soon there with grappling irons.
Assisted by William McNaught he had

he went down, catching it when he
first threw the hooks overboard. The
body was at once taken up on the
bank and orked over for twenty min
utes, but it was impossible to resus

happened to be passing, gave much
assistance, andVlirectecP the efforts to

The Tariff on
A Scientific Basis
BUSINESS NOT TO BE UPSET BY
SECOND WHOLESALE REVISION.
PRESIDENT TAFTS KEYNOTE
For the Coming Congressional Cam
paign No More "Extortionate and
Unreasonable Profits." '
Beverly. JIass., Aug. 23. President
Taffs keynote for the coming con
gressional campaign became known
here tonight. The president will fa
vor a further revision of the tariff.
While he is still convinced that the
Payne-Aldrich law is the best tariff
he has at last reached the conclusion
the country has had up to this time,
that there is decided room for im
provement. Only a Fair Profit to the Producer.
Mr. Taft does not propose that bus
iness shall be upset by another whole-,
sale revision, but he will recommend to
congress that individual schedules in
the tariff system be taken up sepa
rately and be disposed of on a scien
tific basis. The new revision is to
be based upon the findings of the tar
iff commission as to the cost of r,ro-
Uduction at home and abroad. Only a
fair profit is to be allowed the Amer
ican producer. "Extortionate and un
reasonable" profits, the president de
clares, are to be tolerated no longer.
The president has stated these facts
and has outlined his position in detail
in the letter he has sent to Represent
ative McKinley of Illinois, for publi
cation In the republican congression
al campaign text book. The letter was
mailed from Beverly yesterday after
noon. The time of making it public has
been left entirely to . the wish of the
Shrewdest Move Yet Made.
Porytical observers regard this move
as about the shrewdest that has been
made during the present administra
tion. It offers an excellent opportun
ity for insurgents and; regulars to get
together in the campaign and Presi
dent Taft has been exceedingly anx
ious to find a ground upon which the,
different factions could meet without
embarrassment to either.
President Meets Insurgents More
Than Half Way.
The principal fight of the insurgents
was upon certain schedules of the tar
iff bill. Th president is meeting them
more than half way in admitting that
individual schedules need further re
vision.' At trie same time he is back
ing up ihe regulars in that he be
lieves they did the best they possibly
could with the unreliable information
that was in their hands.
With the creation of the tariff board
uneer the Payne-Aldrich act and the
enlargement of its power by provis
ion of the last congress, the president
believes a way has been opened to put
tht, tariff on a scientific basis for the
first time in the history of the coun
try. 600 FOREST FIRE FIGHTERS
