Why should not the state ot Arizona,

should not each city follow the same
lines and under the direction and with
thc aid of the state bureau which
uliould be established?
In some states laws have been
passed allowing cities to levy a tax
of a certain amount to create an ad

burden of the cost of the advertising

FOR TARIFF REVISION.
President-Elect Wilson, before leav
ing on his vacation. gav oat a state
ment setting at rest the question ot a
special session of congress next year.
He will call a special session to meet
not later than April 15 for the purpose
of revising the tariff and redeeming
other promises' contained in the Balti
more platform. The statement of the
president-elect, of his intentions as to
the tariff is characteristically sound
and businesslike. He does not believe
it Is necessary to undertake tedious in
vestigations. Ho observes, truly and
dryly, that "every congress has inves
tigated." He might have added that
investigation has been, under repub
lican auspices, 'evasion. The tariff-
commission idea waa nothing-more
than a 'plot mon the part of shifty pol
itlcians, who ielt, that they were near
