trade side of the tariff question is presented by Mr. Thomas G. Shearman, and calls for no special comment, as he presents only the well-known considerations in favor of industrial freedom. His opponent, Prof. Gunton, however, attempts to defend protection on philosophic grounds and erect it into a permanent system instead of leaving it in the position of a temporary expedient, applicable only to the infancy of industries. He regards protection a means of maintaining the wage level of a country, by forcing a competing country to pay in duties an amount which will put it on the same basis as the country of higher wages. The tariff can in justice therefore be only sufficient to cover the difference in wages of the competing countries—a condition, it need hardly be said, that would not suit our tariff beneficiaries at all. Dr. Lewis G. Janes contributes a thoughtful paper upon the problem of city government, which is concerned mainly with pointing out the difficulties of the problem rather than with suggestions as to the solution. He insists, however, that the proper form of city government must be a matter of growth, shaped and determined by our political life, and that the example of foreign cities can be of but little use in helping us to solve the problem of American city government. Other essays of interest are Mr. John A. Taylor's defense of the independent in politics, Prof. Le Conte's discussion of the race problem in the South, the monetary problem by William Potts, and representative government by Edwin D. Mead.
