TO CONTROL WEALTH,
President Tnft evidently is a firm
believer In the power of government
to regulate the size of personal for
tunes by restrictive methods of tax
ation. He dealt with the question
or rate of taxation on passive and
permanent investments nie ine
stocks and bonds of a corporation,
than on earned incomes.
Referring to the proposed Income
tax amendment and the equitable di
vision of large fortunes, President
"If the Income tax amendment
passes, as I hope it may, we can
then enlarge the corporation tax so
nH to include a proper burden on the
bondholders In corporations as well
las upon tho shareholders; and this
'will mako this instrument ot taxa-
tlon even more equitable than It now
"Th03e who favor a directly per
sonal Income tax for the purposo ot
restraining great wealth will prob
ably And It Ineffective.
"I have already considered on a
previous occasion how our great for
tunes could be divided without dras
tic confiscatory methods. It seems
to me now as It did then that the
proper authority to reduce the size
or fortunes Is the state rather than
the central government.
"Let the state pass laws of in
heritance which shall require the
division of great fortunes among the
cnuaren ot the decedents and shall
not permit a. multimillionaire to
leave his fortune In trust bo as to
keep It In a mass; make much more
drastic the rules against perpetui
ties which obtain at common law,
and then Impose a heavy and grad
uated Income tax which shall enable
the Btate to shnre largely In the
proceeds of such large accumulations
of wealth which could have hardly
been brought about save through Its
protection and aid.
"In this way, gradually and effec
tively, the concentration of wealth
In one hand or a few hands will be
neutralized ana the danger to tho
Republic which has been anticipated
through a continuation through gen
erntlons of accumulating fortunes
will be obviated. The use of the In
come tax itself for the purpose, I
think, would never be very success
ful because of the dlffldultyof find
ing the income upon which to im
pose me tax ami the opportunity
that perjury will offer to escape It."
Tho words of tho President show
that In common with all ndyanced
Btudents of government' he believes
that the stato possesses an Inherent
right to regulate and control that
which Is only created through Its
