The New Tariff
The Payne tariff law has completed its
first year which has been a strenuous one.
It has been kicked downstairs by Demo-
cratic godparents, who disowned it; lost
at several family gatherings of its own
people, and apologies have been made for
its appearance by some relatives who
ought to hold it near and dear. And yet,
despite cuffs, kicks and misrepresenta-
tions, it has grown stronger every day,
says the New York "Tribune." Its first
year of life ended with a record of
achievement not equaled since customs
ports were first opened on America's
The official figures now available con-
tradict in so startling a manner most of
the charges against the Payne law as to
make them seem absurd. These firgures,
compiled by government experts wholly
without reference to political considera-
tions, tell the truth in a simple and direct
way and give "the shorter and uglier
word" in no uncertain fashion to certain
eminent politicians who are denouncing
the Payne law for its alleged exorbitant
duties and its failure to meet the needs
of the people and the government.
It appears from the statistics that Presi-
dent Taft was entirely within the fact:
in his two principal statements respect
ing the Payne law. On the day he sign-
ed the bill the president said he believed
it to be the result of a sincere effort on
the part of the Republican party to make
a downward revision, and six weeks later
at Winona, Minn., he declared the Payne
law to be the best tariff ever proposed by
the Republican party.
It will be ten days or two weeks before
the custom statistics for July are com-
piled. For comparative purposes, how-
ever, n summary finished today by the
experts of the Bureau of Statistics tells
the story of the first |year of the law.
This summary covers the eleven months
ended with July 1, and is shown in the
what the law has ACCOMPLISHED
The tale unfolded in these statistics is
so remarkable as to confound the critics
and amaze the friends of the law. It
First—That the total value of free im-
ports in the eleven months of the Payne
law was greater than for an average
similar period under any other tariff law
Second—That the total value of duti-
able imports was greater than for an
average similar period of any other trriff
Third—That the percentage of free im-
ports was greater than for an average
similar period of any other tariff law, the
McKinley law alone excepted, when sugar
was on the free list.
Fourth—That the custom receipts were
greater than for an average similar period
of any other tariff law.
Fifth That the av erage ad valorem on
dutiable articles Vas lower than for an
average similav period of any other tariff
Sixth—That the average ad valorem on
all imports was lower than for an average
similiar period of any other tariff' law.
It goes without saying that an increase
of both dutible and free importations un-
equaled in American history, is not in-
indicative of extortionate duties. "The
average rate of the Payne law is at leaf t
2 per cent, higher than the average of
the Dingley law," said Champ Clark, the
minority leader, in a burst of righteous
rhetoric. A glance at the table shows
how far from the facts Mr. Clark was
The average ad valorems on all imports
were practically one per cent, lower than
under the Wilson tariff-for-revenue law,
framed by Mr. Clark's party, and about >.
4Yi per cent, lower than under the Ding-1
ley law. j
Since the Payne law went into effect'
the customs revenues have been approxi-
mately $1,000,000 for every working day.
The monthly average of customs recei|>ts
under the Payne law has been double j
