WASHINGTON. Feb. rf.-Presldent
Taft today sent to congress his much dis
cussed "budget" message. He recom
mends tho adoption of a budget system of
relating proposed expenditures to ex
pected revenues and declares that con
gress will bo greatly benefited by having
before It such a statemtn before It be
gan the annual grind upon appropriation
hills. Tho I'nlted States, tho president
writes, Is tho only great nation in the
world which does not use the budget
system and In consequence It "may.be
said to bo without plan or program.'! Ho
Indicates that owing to the late day nt
which he Is able to transmit his message
he expects llttlo legislation on the topic
from tho present congress.
TnUes Full Responsibility.
Tho president takes full responsibility
for the message upon himself. Congress
In tho last civil bill directed tho secretary
of the treasury to submit estimates here
after In tho old way. Mr. Taft pointed
out, however, that ho had directed tho
secretary of the treasury to agree with
the directions of congress and also lo
send to him for Information for a budget
message. Ho referred congress also to the
portion of the constitution which requires
hlni from time to time to recommend
such measures as he shall deem neces
sary and expedient
A1 vnntnKeft, of Plnn.
Pome of the advantages of the budget
system as pointed out by the president
are: '
A means of- locating responsibility for
estlmatcH In keeping with revenues.
A means of allowing congress to se
how much gross It wilt have to spend
before It begins nproprlatlng' for encli de
partment or dcfall of government ma
chinery. Because It would furnish congress nnd
the public with ready rcferenco to report?
and detalled..rrcords of account.
Because It would produce an adequate
organization for assembling and classi
fying Information to bo usod In telling
the country what, has be en dono and of
the government's future needs.

To cancel tho nation's debt through a
sinking fund and to eliminate the deficit,
which Is slowly growing.
.Uniting; Knml Commission.
To carry out tho budget plan, to re
duce the deficit and fixed charges against
the government, tho president proposed:
To create a sinking fund commission to
consist of the chairman of the finance
committee of the senate, tho chairman
of the house wayH und means committee,
tho attorney general and tho secretary
of tho treasury, with tho comptroller of
tho treasury as tho annual auditor of the

dent Taft.
The filibuster carried on last night by
Senators Guggenhehner and Gronna vas

One amendment would put the new cnll

said lie lias bought eggs 100 miles out In
the country for B cents per dozen less
than ho had to pay for them here from
thn members of tho Produeo exchango.
It cost 15 cents per crate to ship the eggs
here from that polrtt. The witness said
he had taken the matter up with tho sec
retary of the Produce exchange, and had
been told by the secretary that the cot
of handling .reduced tho profit so that It
was doubtful whether any member of the
exchange made moro than 1V4 cents per
dozen on the eggs.
Must I'hj- qalek.
In regard to tho black list, the witnesses
all agreed that If thpy did not pay their
bills to the produce men by Thursday
they wero placed on the 'blacklist," and
that after that they were unable to get
supplies from any produce man In the
exchange except It was sent C O. D.
"Docs It do one any hurni lo be on tho
blacklist?" ono witness wns asked.
"Well, It don't do you much good,"
was the prompt reply. "No matter how
good your credit Is elsewhera If you have
foiled to pay your bill to the produce man
by a certain date you are cut out by all
of them."

It was brought out that the Produce
exchango operates under strict rules In
this regard and that fines are Imposed
on members if they should give credit to
a man after he has been placed on the
"blacklist." It was also brought out
that a man Is nimble to learn which
member has turned his name for the
blacklist, or which member he owes,
if ho may happen to know, Ono witness,
told of having gone to buy somo produce,
mid-having been told he was on the black
list, and thik his goods would have to

the secretary to find who ho owed that
ho might fix up the obligation In order
to restore his standing. Tho secretary
refused to tell him. He went back to
the commission man a second amj a
third time and was finally told:
"It's all right. You are fixed up now.
You are not on the blacklht any more. '

It Is held by some that this is a system
of making It disagreeable for tho smaller

for him to do business. It Is held that
It Is a system that works In favor-of
the larger retailer, who Is ulwayB able
to pay his weekly bills promptly, and
i thus get the advantage of prompt de

One witness said he had no knowl

but he did know that he always had
to pay the same price for eggs, butter
