WEEKLY NEWS ARTICLE
Washington, July SO. Following
their established methods of pro
cedure during this administration of
putting the" cart before the horse,
the Republicans are now In the act
of debating and passing a tariff bill
when the entire business Interests
of the country are clamoring for
revision of the tax laws.
The bill Is well-named the Ford
ney Bill for "Uncle Joe" Fordney is
the Grand Panjandrum of the tariff.
To him the tariff Is a panacea; it
cures corns, warts, bunions and
chilblains; . prevents falling out of
the hair, strengthens the kidneys,
cleanses the liver, and is good for
what ails you whether anything is
the matter with you or not.
It is fashioned on the old lines of
the Payne-Aldrich bill, only more
so. It is being passed under a gag
rule, which prevents amendments
except on a few schedules, the House
delegating its legislative function to
the Ways and Means Committee.
The "Joker" in the bill Is the "Amer
ican valuation" clause, by which
the value of the article is -fixed at
the port of entry and not - at the
port of shipment. This will make
the tariff rates much higher than
they appear to be under the sched
ules of the bill. For instance, as the
Philadelphia Record points out:
If a foreign article is valued at
f 1 and the same article here is
valued at $2 and the duty, say, is
100 per cent, the value of the foreign
article thus becomes $4, duty paid.
The American manufacturer could
raise' his price to $3 or even $2.50
and undersell his foreign competi
tor and the Treasury, would get no

against the hill
has upnet and transformed many-
venditions, especially economic con
ditions. . Sometimes, it would seem
that they forget there has been a
world war. But Herbert Hoover,
who perhaps ranks , highest among
Republican .economists, has not for
gotten, and his newspaper, the
Washington Herald, has recently
called attention to these changed
conditions with particular reference
o the tariff question. In Its issue
of Feb. 9, 1921; the Herald editorial
ly pointed out the difficulties, If not
Impossibilities, of equitable tariff
adjustment, which apparently has
been unheeded by the junker tariff
makers and their beneficiaries, the
'highly protected campaign contribu
tors. It said under the above cap
tion: It is one thing to be the world's
greatest debtor nation and quite an
other to be the world's greatest
creditor nation. ' It is another dis
turbing factor to hate a compara
tive equality among the money of
all nations change so that this Is the
only one of the great trading na
tions,' whose money values have not
greatly depreciated as compared to
that of its commercial competitors.
It is a vexing element to have these
relative values as variable as Is the
number of competing nations.
"So a tariff that would adequately
protect American .industry as to
Great Britain might be wholly in
adequate as to France, Germany or
Italy. Another variance of this
problem is found as to Japan, as to
the new Europe and all the neutrals.
It would take not afUed Inflexible
tariff law. but financial legerdemain,
to adjust these differences, equita
bly and readjust them with constant
