American Library Association opened its
thirty-sixth annual conference In this
city last night. The sessions will con
tinue throughout the week, with simul
taneous meetings ,every morning and aft
ernoon fit variotls secUons of the asso
slatlon and of affiliated organisations,
and general sessions this evening; tomor
row evening, and friday anernoon.
At the opening session last night greet
ings of the librarians of Waanington to
the visiting delegates were expressed In
an address by Dr. Herbert rutnam.
Librarian of Congress, and Continental
Memorial Hall was crowded to the gal
Ierf3w by visiting members and by local
librarians and their friends, all bent upon
participating from start to finish in the
exchange of Ideas and upon Imbibing
fresh inspiration to enable them to make
their individual libraries more useful to
the communities which they serve.
Edwin H. Anderson, director of the
New York Library and president of the
association, made the response-to Dr.
Putnam's welcome, and Immediately aft
erward launched upon his annual address.
In which be Inveighed strongly against
the system which has resulted in -excluding
from America by the tariff waU
much of the best of the literary produe-
Uonof the rest of the world. Mr. An
derson spoke to the topic, "Ths Tax on
Ideas," In the course of which he said: ,
One of Few to Iaspsae Daty.
"Russia and the United States are the
only powers of the first class which im
pose a duty on books puousnea oeyona
their borders. Great Britsln, France,
Germany, Austria, Holland, Belgium,
Japan, the South African Union. Argen
tina, Australia, and New Zealand Im
pose no such duties. But Spain, Por-
tOKaL Italy. Brazil, and some minor
countries of the two hemispheres, with
Russia snd our own country, pursue a
less enlightened policy.
"Before the civil war the duty on for
eign books was U per cent ad valorem.
During the war It was Increased to 25
ner cent, where it remained, as far as
books in the English language are con
cerned, till the act of 1913. It la not a
tariff "for revenue, since ths income to
the government from this source is In
considerable. If it is a protective tanrx,
who is nrotected. and why?
"For Instance, the- American t Bible
manufacturers contended that if the duty
on Bibles, printed and bound by the un
derpaid labor of England, was reduced,
the Blble-maklng Industry In this coun
try would be entirely-destroyed. "The
price of Bibles to a 100,000.000 people U
to be maintained In the Interest of a
few hundred, people engaged In . their
manufacture: What la best for the 100,
000,900 does not count. The case is typical
in',.IU absurdity. )
- "The- number of books published annually-in
the United States Is only 'about
S per cent, of the total annual produc
tion of the world.
"While we tall the procession; In book
production, we Import annually from the
other countries of. the "world only a
paltry6 cents' worth for each "of us. In
the face of these facts we 'cannot claim
high rank as readers of books.' ..
"Our tariff on English books bears
heaviesfc-n those who are least able to
pay it our scholars, our teachers, our
scientific investigators. Elsewhere the
most enlightened governments do every
thing In their power to encourage uch
men as national assets. Here cur poller
actually discourages v them. Instead of
being taxed- books snouia-De pnvuegea.
not for the encouragement of an Indus
try but for the education of the people."
Dr. A. E.-Bostwlck. chairman of, the
committee on library administration, pre:
sented a detailed report on the exhibition
of library labor, saving devices, which
has been installed at the Washington
Public Library. As an adjunct to 'the

Charles H. Grasty, editor of the Balti
more Sun, discussed Maryland politics

ference. AMERICAN UNIVERSITY
