In viow oE certain confusion in
tho mind of tlio public regarding
tbo definition of "income," con
fusion tlint linn fnnnd its vnv lntn
tno .expressions ot our citizens'
legislators,rnllow rao to mako the
following statement. r
Tho term "income" has two
meanings, ono gcnoral and one
special. In goneral senso of tho
word, according to "Webster, iu
como means: "That gain which
proceeds from lnbor,buBincss,pro
porty, or capital of any kind, as
tho produce of u farm, tlio rent of
houses, tho proceeds of profes
sional business, tho profits of
commerce or occupation, or tho
intorest of money or stock in
funds, etc., revenue, receipts,
Regarding tho Bpecial sense of
tho term Wobstor says: "espe
cially tho annual receipts of a
private person or a corporation
In this special senso the term
"income" is identical with "rovo
nuo," which is defined by "Web
ster as "that which returns or
comes back from an investment:
the annual rents, profits, interest
or issues of any speciesfjitod
pupy, rum or personal, liicomo.
Still oleareVaud plainer is tho
difference between the two mean
ings from the point of viow of
modern political economy.
From that point of viow tho in
come from labor is called wages.
The income from investment of
capital is called rovonno or salary.
Tho difforouco between both is
very sharp and matorial. "Where
as wages represent that part of
tho value of the produce which is
returned to tho producer for his
Bustonanco, rovonuo represents
tho other part, viz., tho unpaid
increment of labor from which
rents, dividends and what more of
tho investor are compounded.
In other words wages or salary
ia tho produco (or rather a part of
n; ot one's labor. Revenue is tho
produco of tho labor of somebody
else, appropriated by tho investor
under various protoxts. In order
to got wages ono must work, viz:
Spend a certain amount of mus
cular or nervous force of one's
body; in order to got rovonuo it is
sufficient to confide management
to supervisors, directors, etc., and
oneself livo in Paris, London,
etc., and enjoy life. "Wages, is
what I gain by my own labor,
rovenuo what I gain by tho labor
In the amountjrotained by the
investor us his sharo of tho pro
duco their is certainly soino per
fectly legitimate part; wear and
tear of tho machinery, hisurnnco
against damago, destruction and
business loss, but this does not
enter as au ingredient into what
is called "net revonue."
From point of view of taxation
tho difforouco between wages or
salory on ono hand and rovonuo
on tlio other must bo taken in con
sideration. "Whoreas to tax wages
and salaries means to tax lobor, tho
progressive taxation of rovonuo
is tho only fair basiB.
Homo members of logislaturo as
well as citizens aro mistaken in
considering tho income of skilled
labor as rovonuo from investment.
Thoysay that thoro'is no differ
ence in taxing a physician and tho
farm. Tlioy consider profession
al and other skilled education as
an investment. Such is not the
caso. Allowing even as much
that 10 years of education is ne
cessary to moko a professional
man, and taking his sustonanco
at S25 r. mouth or 300 a yoar, on
ly $3000 are really nocessary. Al
lowing furthor, 10 per emit inter
est upon this sum, if tho difforonco
of p killed and unskilled labor
weiH mere investment, the wages
of both kindsof labor would diffor
only by $300 a year. If a common
fiqld laborer gota 50c a day, it law
yet, legiplator, priest, physician
oifghtto have S180-l-300480 ft
yenr'. Gcnnrnlly tlioy liavo fivo
and ten tinn'8 nioit This is.bo
causo their earnings represent not
tho interest upon investment, but
accumulated wages ior past anil
present labor. In laying a special
tax upon skilled lalnir, you tax
not onlypresent but, pn8t labor as
woll,.,which is a double injustice.
Ono remark regarding physi
cians: Wo hear that physicians
In this country aro getting rich.
Is it bo? Aecording to English
statistics, a physician in dying
usually loaves enough money to
pay for his instruments. Of tlio
most prominent practitioners that
have died in this city ono left $1500
book debts, another a mortgaged
house, tho third, au eminent scien
tist Dr. nillubrand) did not have
money enough to edit his valuablo
"Wo aro UBiially told that this is
duo'to our vices and extravagance.
As for vices wo nevor pretended to
bo saints as some other people.
Horainis est orroro. But wo
challengo anybody to provo that
wo aro more vicious or less virtu
oub than tho Now York, Chicago,
London and Hamburg sugar plant
ers and shareholders.
In regard to extravagance In
political economy thoro is a law
called "iron law of wages." It
says that tho avorago wages of a
laborer in any branch of produc
tion equals necessary expenses
of his sustenance. Tho avorago
oxpouBps necessary to Bustain a
physician aro certainly higher than
those of another labor. Ho nqods
books, inStrumonts, buggy, horse,
office, recent dress, etc., in order
to movo in Bocioty, to which ho
is bound not by any special res
pect but by necessity, und theso
relatively high expenses make tho
difference betwoou his earnings
and tho earnings of unskilled
labor, betwoou himsolf and au
oUior worker. As a man and
citizen ho is proud to bo a labor
er, not a drone.

There was much surmise about
town as to what tho authorities
would do with tho Gaolio on her
arrival, in viow of the cable mes-
j sage received by Minister Coopor
and published exclusively in the
Bulletin, to tho effect that a Chi
nese had secretly loft the stoamer
at Yokohama and died in tho Chi
nese hospital thoro of tho black
plaguo. Attomoy-Goneral Smith
called a meeting of tho Board of
Health for 3 p. m. to tako action
on tho mattor, but the steamer be
ing sighted shortly boforo that
time it was postponed until after
tho port physician had visited tho
When Dr. Day got on board
tho steamer tho ship's doctor re
ported that there had been sick
ness on tho vessel between Hong
kong and Yokohama and that on
examining tho stoorago passengers
tho day after leaving tho latter
port ono of them was found to bo
missing. This, of course, was tho
man mentioned in the cablegram
from R. "W. Irwin and who died
of the plaguo. Ho also roportod
that on the 7th of April a mild
I caso of varioloid was discovered
; and that strict measures had boon
i takon to provont the spread of
ktho disease through the ship.
.Dr. uay ordered tno vessel to
remain outsido and reported at
oucoto tho Board of Health which
was in session and awaiting his
arrival. E. Suhr, representing tho
agonts of tho vessel, was also pre
sent. Dr. Day roportod tho existence
of smallpox on tho vessol and said
she had 900 steorago passengers
and 700 tons of froight.
After much consideration tho
Board determined that tho pas
songors should all bo landed at
tho quarantino station, tho sick
man being sent first to tho post
houso iii a separate boat, and to
bo handled only by mon who have
had tho disease The mon and
boat woro thou to bo thoroughly
fumigated, and tho rost of tho
passongors takon iu lighters to
Quarautino Islaud, whoro thoy
will have to stay until tho further
ordors of the Board.
It was further decidod that tho
vessol should bo allowed to land
hor froight at tho Pacific Mail
wharf under tho strictest quaran
tino. Tho steamor and her corgo
will bo thoroughly fumigated and
every ono handling tho freight
will bo quarantined.
Vaccination of passongors was
not ordered, as all tho Chinese
woro vaccinated by tho ship's doc
tor and tho Japaneso woro vac
cinated at Yokohama.
During tho morning the Hack
folda lighter Ihib boon uusy trans
ferring tho passongors to tho quar
antino station under tho superin
tendence of Agont Reynolds, J. D.
McVeigh and Archio Gilfillan.
Tho steamor will come up to tho
wharf during the afternoon and
dischargo her froight. As ut pro
sont arranged sho will leave for

In connection with tho
breaking out of tho plaguo
at Hongkong, whoro, accord
ing to the latest dispatches,
thoro is an avorago of forty deaths
per day, a speoial conforonco of
tho Board of Health with tho Ex
ecutive will tako placo at the gov
ernment building at 3 o'clock this
afternoon to compiler whut means
shall bo adopted to guard against
its importation to tlioso islands.
Tho proposition is to stop all
steerage travel from China and
Japan to tho islands if the plaguo
continues. Sevorul moinbors ot
the Logislaturo have boon invited
to attond tlio conforonco.
