THIRTEEN YEARS AFTER DEC-

THE INITIAL "PROTECT-
IVE ACT" PASSED
(By the Associated Press)
Washington April 8. Many a musty
oddity of forgotten statutes hua been
turned up by a search of th capitol
archives. This Iuim disclosed that the
first congress assembled under the
constitution fared the same problem
us will the Sixty-Seventh when it
meets Monday. -The
first tariff act was passed on
July 4 1789. Its formal title statement
of purpose "for laying a duty on goods
wares and merchandise imported into
the United States" carried a bluntness
Which statesmen for the next hundred
yenrs were to avoid.
"It is necessary for the support of the
government" this first congress said
"for the discharge of debts of the United
States and for the encouragement and
protection of manufacturers that a duty

forward statement of purpose about
"encouraging and protecting 'manufac-
turers" woul'J' be made again in un im-
liort tax statute though the purpose
-was most evidently behind most or the
scores of following acts. So simple was
the first hill that It required only two.

more than 100 for the Payne-Aldrlch
act of 1909.
Too simple it probably was for a

tariff bill us it passed on .Mareh 2 1792
was stated to be "for the raising of
farther sum of money for the protection
of frontiers" evading any remarks
about protection of Industries. Its du
ties were Increases anl one duty Im
posed was coal per bushel four' and
Two years later the famous Tripoli
troubles arose und congress on March
2tf. 1794 passed un act to protect the
commerce and seamen of the United
State against the Rnrbary powers.
This act slapped on a general Increase
of two and one. half and 10 per cent ad
valorem duties. The starute stated it
self t.- be temporary for one year but
the title iprnved tu he too goo1 1- ti be
wasted. Yeur by year after clear up to
181.1 congress reiterated its laudable
purpose re-enacted its Increased sehe-
dales and announced It was going it-
ter the Barbary pirates with a rnntlnu-
utlon of the tariff for unolher twelve
In 1813. however the nation went to
war with Great britulu und in a hasty
und brier paruiiraph of statute congress
arinouiicvJ "an additional duty of loo
per cent on all permanent duties" to be
collected for the duration f humilities.
' The tut vii Imported salt incidentally
got up to .0 cents u pound.

' For the next 40 years mom vf the acts
were labelled "to reduce duties" This
they pluinly did for suit tux was placed
ut' 10 cent! a bushel. Congress wu
fruitful of enactments "tu release from
iluty iron pnvuitM fvr railway" und
Presidential proclamations reduced

ruary 2."i ISIS noted that "vessels and
subjects of His Holiness the Pope" were
no longer to be churgi-d higher customs

See had been arranged.
But the tariff (lime back will! the
beginning of the Civil War. Congress on
March 2 1SCI paso( "An net to pro-

foreshadowed the modern era.
With misplaced optimism on July

EXTRA SESSION OF
CONGRESS APRIi A 1
MAY BE (HAIKMAN MINOK1TK
CAICIS: THINKS CONGRESS
WILL CONVENE UNTIL D VIE
Charles I). Carter has returned to
Washington where congrc-.ss will con-
vene in extra session on the 11th of
this month. Mr. Carter Is of the opin-
ion that the' congress will remain In
session probably until time for the
regular session next December. It is
also his opinion that legislation will
take u wide trend und will cover many
subjects. He states however tlil the
chances are that the first part of tin
session will be devoted utmost exclu-
sively to a revision of the tax laws and
of tariff und other legislation affecting
the financial Interests of the country.
Mr. Carter has been Informed that
there Is a demand for his services as
chairman of the minority caucus. If
this duty comes to him It will place
him second in power in the minority
power in congress. Air. Carter Is hot
seeking the place. If it comes to him
he will accept but unless il coiiie-j with-
out effort he will not accept it.
Mr. Carter's reasons are these that
the caucus chairman must have ihe
solid support of his party or he be-
comes useless in that capacity and
should any one seek a leadership that
did not come to him naturally then he
could not be the natural leader his
power would be artificiul and he would
not have the strength that comes from
u willing cooperation.
