FOR SCIENTIFIC REVISION. Both 1'ivsuli nt Tal't Mini ev-l'iotti-il.nt K'losevelt favor setcntitke revision or the tarlft as (ihih,-.I to the lil guesa.vork method which has been adopted b the lvmocruts. Before the present tariff hoard was mati-d there was no adequate knowledge "I what thM eoiiditlons of production wciv .it home and abroad. QSBSjNBj which trained the tariff measures, had no icxunprehcnslve knowledge of iiiunii facturing costs of of relative cii'cum stan. es. This the tariff txard lias sup piled on several or the loading sched ules. It Is tho business of the b..n.l t. frame the new tariff. It concern itself with figures, not ;it all with prim ipies. The ptOlXtloW theorx . what is to be the tariff relation be tween American prtnluetlon ami it elgn production, is entirely In the hands ot ''ongress. The itoarri does, however, supply the necessary Infor mation to enable 'ongress to act. The tariff board has proved Its val ue. S far It has repotted Ml the ?.ool schedule. the pulp ami pa pet schedule and the cotton schedule and in,, n-iuest of the president for funds to enable It to continue Us investi gations, taking up the metal, leather, .hem leu 1 and sugar schedule, should he met. The necessary funds should be cheerfully appropriated for Lite im jortant work of the board should not bo interrupted It is uppliiig th basis at last for a really scieiittlie a1 .iuatmcnt of the tariff rates. TH E TREASURER S SALARY. The interests of the township oi Calumet and its taxpayers will he best conserved by voting on Monday against the repeal of the Local Act relative to the salary of the township treasurer The question at issue is a simple one. It is merely: "Is $I.mmj per year enough for an official who can hire the r- piired three months' work (De cember. January and February) done for $300? It appears to The News to be one-side I Question, with the MBJgMBl all In favor of the present law tixing the salary at $l.SO0 per year, m at th rate at ffi'Ht per month for the time ac tually put in. It strikes us that tlu pood, common sense of the voters will not permit the repeal of the Act. To repeal the Act would he to give 1 M treasurer SfJSS. j-r year; to which he would e entuiel under th- o-e svj.- 1,111, or S 1 ..".00 i'T each ot those thre months In which there Is work to do' The township now gets the IMtMTM 1 which is extendeil for the goinl of the .ntire t .unship. During the six years tho present Act has been in effect the township has benefited to the extent of .'.. Kv.t t:i. .T t.'.1 i.'Ji annually. The treasurer's job Is a sinecure. I"ul1 v three-fourths of the taxes are paid Into the hank In one lump with out any effort on the t rVasurer's part. If he desires he van hire practically all of the work ('one for $100 per month, or a total of $'h0. while he signs his name a few times and pulls down the bal ance of l,Mft, Kasv money, is it not? n m, two ; pie will begruilne him that amount, but to give him more woul.l be unreasonable and not in keeping with good business policy ami sound jii'lRinont.
