Salem Daily News, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1890, Salem, Ohio THE SALEM DAILY NEWS. Ffl I VOL. IL NO. 252. SALEM. OHIO, FRIDAY. OCTOBER 24. 1890. TWO CENTS. Discovery of a Fatal Error ia tbe Tariff BUL Claimed That the Mistake May Inval- idate the Entire Xlie Blander lu tlie Section Relat- ing to on of I'rouiinont Men on the Subject. NEW YOKK, Oct. Mc- Pherson very recently wrote as lollows to a member of a prominent importing house in this city: "1 beg to call your attention to the conference report and tariil bill sent to you about two weeks oarnphlet of 214. pages. On page 175 will {ind amendment 449 and section SO, ihe reading matter relating to drawbacks on tobacco strirken out. Turning over to page 17t5, sixth line from tho top, you will find the following: 'Conference restores soe- tionSO.' Now in the tariff bill boforo you you will find section 30. 'That on and after the 1st day of in? with six cents per all the rest of original sc-otion 80 out altogether. This omission is fatal to the bill and in the opinion of eminent lawyers hero, Senator Carlisle among them, it vitiates the whole bill. It is an internal revenue section, but, being part of the tariff bill, passed. It stands and falls together." In accordance with this discovery a protest against Collector Erhart's offi- cial action under the McKinley bill has been forwarded to the leading- importers in tnis city for signature. Under the law protest against the collector's as- sessments can not be lodged until the liquidation of entry, and must be lodged within, ten days after that stage in the importer's business with tbe Govern- ment Senator Carlisle, who was one of the conferees, was asked what would be the effect of the omission of section 80 from the tariff bill. "I have be said, "examined the authorities on the sub- ject, but it seoms quita clear to me that the omission of one section is just as fatal to the bill as if all but ono had been omitted. If the President can sijfn part of a bdl passed by both houses, and make that a law, of course it makes no difference how small a part it is. Should the constitutional'ty of this law be tested in the courts the question would have to be determined by the journals of the two houses, because they constitute the only legal evidence of what was done. The two houses passed the tariff bill, but in different forms. When it came back from the committej there was noth- ing to act upon except its report, which I suppose was entered upon the journal of both houses, as Is usual in such cases." WASHINGTON, Oct. alleged fatal defects in tho new tariff bill formed an interesting topic of discussion in offi- cial circles yesterday, and. while the de- fects were not thought to invalidate the bill as a whole, sentiment was almost unanimous that section 30 of the tobacco paragraph, which was omitted in its en- tirety, could not be enforced and whore it by coustruction referred to par- agraphs it might impair their strength. As to the law signed by the President not being the law passed by Congress, Private Secretary Kalford said the bill signed by President Harrison was the same bill signed by the Speaker of House and the President of the Senate. These officers by their signatures certi- fied that the bill had passed their re- spective branches of Congress and their attestation of that fact was tho usual mode of procedure and the only notification tho President ever received that a bill had passed. Whothor tho law was constitutional or not was a mat- ter for the courts to decide. All former tariff acts contained more or less omissions and errors, and even as late as February 27, 1S77, an act was passed to suoply omissions in the Re- vised Statutes. It is thought at tho Treasury Department that tho same course will be pursued in rocrard to any defects of the present tariff law if they are of a character serious enoug-b to call for it.
