SIGN FOR 1600 BLOCK.
The Argus regrets that It cannot
coincide with the views of some of
the others In the 1C00 block who de
sire to stretch an electric sign across
Second avenue at some point between
Sixteenth and Seventeenth streets.
The block has a settled policy In re
gard to signs, having been the pioneer
in the movement for and the first to
accomplish results In abolishing swing
ing or projecting advertising devices.
Afler having jshown the way in this
respect, it would hardly be consistent
to take the step proposed.
Hanging a sign across the avenue
would make the block resemble a
midway, cutting Jt off from the bal
ance of the business district. This is
also out of line with the aims of the
association, which has done such cred
itable work in pushing the section of
the city to the front. The 1G0O block.
while seeking to establish Individ
uality, is cooperating with the other
blocks in the business part of the city

extremes of all sorts.

THE CURE-ALL TARIFF.
As a panacea for all ills that bo
set the body politic, there is
nothing and never can be anything to
take the place of a republican tariff
to hear the republicans tell about it.
If we had a good old fashioned G. O.
P. tariff now, they say, the triflins
matters of having foreign trade prac
tically destroyed, a large part of the
available gold supply drawn out of the
country, the world's securities market
wiped out and the international finan
cial fabric utterly broken down in a
single day would be as nothing. With
the kind of protection our old repub
lican forefathers used to dope out
these things would slide off the na

Such a tariff as they claim to be capa
ble of framing up would yield revenue

Revenue has considerably more than
doubled in ten years and now reaches
the enormous total of $5S5.930,511l
The increase in transportation rev
enue, however, from 1907 to 1912 is
only $129,90S,426. compared with the
increase from 1902 to 1907 or $154,
279,342. The percentage increase of
the later period of 33.3 per cent is ap
proximately only one-half of the in
crease of the earlier period of 63.4
per cent. This decreased rate of in
crease has been due to the financial
depression following 1907 and also to
the general recognition of diminishing ; dollar an hour.

Some of tbe republican newspapers

less than it would have been under

benefit of those who are not en

on every side. There was the obvious
temptation to address to tiie German

came back and sat down before the
girl from tip state.
"Say, look herer she said stiarply.
"I've promised to take a fifteen a week
job, but I made up my mJnd Just now
to get out of New York, and I don't
want it. I've decided to leave the
city. The work isn't anything but
what you could do, and $3 a week Is a
lot when you come to think about it
Now, there isn't any reason why you
can't go right tip there and say I sent
you and tell them what you can do.
I know you are all right. Will you?"
"Why, yes-s, of course I wilL" the
"You run right along now. They are
expecting me back," said Hannah.
The girl from up state went radi
antly. Hannah sat for a long time at the
restaurant table, with her food un
touched, trying to think what to do
At a table behind her a man with
bent shoulders had watched the op
state girl as she talked, and now, as
Hannah lingered, he sat at his table
with some papers spread out before
him. But he did not read.
The card of the insurance company
lay unheeded beside the girl's coffee
cup. nannah picked it up and read
again the name of its representative.
It was Allen Morehouse.
The name was printed In red, and
the letters danced impishly before her
The address was on the card. It
was quite near at hand, not four blocks
away, and a sudden impulse made her
determine to go and tell him why the
flower faced girl he had hired woaid
In five mlnutessbe was in the In
surance office. A boy asked her to
wait, and she sank back on a bench.
In afew minutes she was motioned
toward Mr. Morehouse's rrivate office.
A gray haired man was sitting before
a flat desk. He was not very well
dressed, but his eyes were level and
clear and kind.
He looked up, and Hannah spoke.
"I came to say," she said, "that I've
sent that child you hired to a bet
ter job. I thought I'd let you know
that it was Hannah Marvin who was
responsible for your losing her."
"So you thought I wouldn't treat
that little girl well?" he questioned.
Hannah did not reply.
"Sometimes," Morehouse went on,
"a man turns out better tlwn yoa
might expect. I haven't amounted to
very much, but, I've got this little busi
ness here, and the girl who's left me
was here eight years."
Hannah's breath was coming irreg
ularly, and she felt dizzy.
"Hannah," he continued. "I've tried
to find you a good while. I've been
sorry about it all."
He reached across the table and
caught her baud.
"nannah," he said again, "llsren. I
was there In the restaurant, and I
sized up the whole situation. I knnw
what you dtd. and I've got a job for
you, if you'll take it. I'm all alone.
Mother died a year aso. I wish you'd
come and take care of me. I wish
you'd marry me now."
The woman's gray face flushed and
grew nmased. She stared at the man
before hr unbelievingly.
Then the tears came, and as they fell
she brushed them away with the hack
of her thin hand.
"Why, don't you see," she said bro
kenly "don't you see what I am now?
I'm just a crabbed old maid. I'm cress
and ugly and woruout. Don't J""
"Yes. I see." he said slowly. "vu
looked just liko that to me when yoo
gave up your job to that child."
He drew her toward him awkwardly
