THE DEMOCRATIC MESSENGER, SNOW HILL, MARYLAND. TARIFF MAKING IIP 10 JOE PRESIDENT New Law Gives Him Power to Adjust Rates HARDING LAUDS PROVISION Calls It "Greatest Contribution In Cen tury," In Signing Fordney-McCum ber Bill—Work Through Commission. Washington.—American tarill-mak- 1 iug entered a new phase with the j coming into force of the Tariff act of i 1!*22 For the first time in history ! Congress has delegated i>Hrt of its au- j | thorlty over taxes at the customs- j houses, conferring upon the President ; broad powers to increase or decrease < rates and to change front foreign to ] American valuation as the basis for assessing ud valorem duties on ini ports. Referring to the sections carrying this grant of authority. President Harding, in attaching his signature to ; the new act, declared that "if we ! succeed, as I hope we will succeed, in malting effective the elastic provisions of this bill, this will prove tlie great- j est contribution toward progress in tariff-making in a century." The Tariff Commission, created dur- i iug the Administration of President Wilson, will he the agency through which the President will exercise his new authority and present experta- I tions are that its work will rank al- i , most in importance with that ot the Interstate Commerce Commission. The I commission will make extensive in vestigations into cost of production at j home anil abroad and will report its j findings, with recommendations for , rate or valuation changes to the Pres : ident. Applications from manufacturers, i i importers or other interested persons ; for changes in rates or valuation basis i j may he made to either the President I or the commission, but such as were j addressed to the Executive would be ; | referred to the commission The first step would be a determination of ! | whether the facts presented justified J 1 action. If the decision was that they J did, investigation and. perhaps, hear- j j ings would follow. Chairman Marvin said the contmls* | ' stun had not yet hail time to work out i details of methods of procedure. When ( j this task has been completed rules j [ and regulations will be made public. While the commission has for years been engaged In making investigations as to differences in cost of production 1 at home and abroad and gathering \ facts about domestic industries, Mr i Marvin said its functions would be , greatly enlarged under the new act. J Aside from inquiring into questions I of rates, upon the commission will de j j volve the work of ascertaining wheth- j er American commerce and trade is i being discriminated against in foreign countries and making recommenda j tions as to means of meeting situa- , \ tions where discrimination is deter mined to exist. The ascertainment of production costs in foreign countries Is expected | hv commission officials to prove the i most difficult of the various tasks. It is anticipated that in some cases the commission's agents in foreign fields may meet with obstacles in gathering all the facts desired. However, in de- ■ termining whether there shall be i changes in tariffs, the investigating body will not be confined alone to j actual production costs abroad but j will he authorized to take into account selling prices in the American market and other conditions in competition in i trade. Treasury officials. In discussing the new act. said that although no reor ganization of the customs service ! would lie required, the staffs of the ; ! customs offices in a number of larger ports of entry would have to be e\ paniled to handle the increased vol , nine of work. Immediately after the Tariff act was signed by the President telegrams i were sent from the Treasury to Col j lectors of Customs, advising them 1 that the new law would become ef- t fee five at midnight. Returning to the House after the ; Itill was signed. Chairman Kordney ■ made a speech declaring that any , 1 advance in retail prices because of i the operation of the new law was unwarranted. "In view of the present high prlees | and enormous profit In foreign goods sold In our markets.” Mr Kordney told the House, "there is not the slightest ground for an appreciable in crease In retail prices in an> goods, foreign or domestic, and whoever so does will be a profiteer, pure and sim- j pie. Any such unjustifiable acts should he met, not by a repeal of this i American measure, hut by stringent laws making profiteering a crime, and misrepresentation of the tariff Incre ment in sale prices punishable as ob- . i mining money under false pretenses ” | PROPOSES BEER FOR BONUS. Washington. An amendment to the ! Constitution which would permit a nation-wide referendum upon sale of ! per cent beer, with th, receipt* from taxes applied to the payment of a soldiers’ bonus, was proposed In a resolution inti, dined by Representa tive Brennan il!e'<i|h’ i ■■•• i.
