That, on llio face of ceedingly silly I'einarli. of lurid' wrnnglinjv since it wits uttered havu gone, fur lo in'ovc Hint il was pretty largely corrwt.

Whether it In' ii hill to mist- the tarill' or one lo lower il, il inevitably tleKen- cntles inlo a great ( ratline; (,'anie in ..CoiiKri'Ss — with a welter of loral in- !tcresls ultimately deciding (he issues. However regruttalilo Ihis miiy be, 'il is only nutiii-al. The individinil Con- •'jjrossiuun is put uiuler terrific prcssuri;; he is, Curtheriiiore, iicluated by it Itiud- able desire to do what he can for his own constituents. The result is an endless series of li'iitle.-. Out of it clinics a larilV hill Hint seldom is eilher logical or national, hill Ihal represents the blend-. lite of iiiniiiiienible forces, a .composite of a vast number of local issues. The nqw proiwsal would remove .this, very largely, from the liands of Con- Krois. Tlie president would he empowered to negotiate liirill' ngreemenls with individual nations, anil lo raise or lower tariff rates by '.is much as 50 per cent in the, course of such Defoliations. He could not lake an article oil' the free list or put one on il, anil his power would be limited to a Ihrec-year term. * * * This, clearly, is a bill of far-reaching proportions. It would alter aun- plclely our traditional method of selling tariff rales, taking this most important function of government out of the hands of Congress and vesting il in one man. The <|iiestioii lo decide now, is whether the advantages would outweigh I hi: defects. It would give us a chance to get something resembling a scicntilic lurid' and il would end one of \Vii.shinglon's greatest log-rolling games. On the. other hand, il would give the president enormous new powers and—to all in- lonts «nd purposes—lake from Die representatives of the people one of their mosl important functions. Wo are called upon lo do n nice bit of weighing of coniptiralive advnnlagcs. — Bi'iice Cation.

Aliulil Ihc only thing thai is surprising abonl Ihis bill is llic fad thai il wasn't passed long ago. The man in I he street will find il pretty hard lt> lliiuk of any respectable arguments against il. Many members of Congress remain active in law linns which draw rich fees and retainers from large corporations. Now, while a congressman's salary of ?H,f>0(! a year is not a princely .sum, il is at least enough to provide a very comfortable living, and a man who wants to be a congriissniiiii otiglil In be prepared (<» make, it do.
