THE INCOME TAX
What la to become of the Income
tax amendment to the constitution?
Somehow, It Is not attracting wide
spreud notice. Press associations do
not handle the news of it as of great
Importance or very wide Interest, ami

making their way to the public, there

crushing the life out of tho whole
New York's Legislature refused to
approve tho proposed amendment,
and under the title of "A Test of
Honor," tho New York World sounds
the alarm u the following manner:
"The defeat of the Income-tax
amendment at Albany may foreshad-
ow Its rejection by the country at
large in iib present' lorm. iecn-
added to the opposition of powerful
combinations of wealth, are likely to
prevail against it.
"Since It Is admitted that the pro
posed! amendment la clumsy In Its
phrareology, why should not Con
gress cortect lta blunder and resub
mit the proposition hi new form?
Honestly disposed to carry out Its
obligations, that body, could correct
Its error In an Tiour and clear the
way for the consideration of the In
come tax on Its merits. Weighed
down ns It now Is with a formidable
legal dispute, Its fate Is sealed, per

Plantation Stores. '
Merchants of the city and tho
country continue to be considerably
wrought up over the order Issued to
the plantation stores to sell a list of

tho opposition among the Independ

creasing feeling that many of the
large plantation Interests nro going
Into tho merchandise 'business to
nn extent that will eventually run
the Independent Honolulu wholesaler
and retailer out of business. Not a

members of the Planters' Associa
tion and members of the Merchants'
Association has beon carried orf In
connection with is matter during
tho last twelve months. Tho salo-at-
cost order merely in some instances
bared an old sore.
Those supporting the order of the
plantation stores defend It on ac
count of the splendid effect It will
have In Washington, as showing the
good will of the planters toward
their laborers. On tho other hand,
the tfumiorters of tho Independents
claim that the effect will be Just the

NOTHING HARMFUL JN COCA
COLA. The past' few soars has seen n re
markable growth In temperance Ideas
In all parts or tho United Stntes.
And us h consequence thero has been
considerable falling off In tho con
sumption of spirituous liquors, Ono
of tho chief substitutes for'lntoxlcat-i
lng beverages which has brought
about this change of front Is COCA
COLA. It Is counted as one of the chief'1
auxiliaries of the temperance move
ment. Largely on nccouut or the
Increased use of COCA-COLA, u per
fectly harmless beverage, the soda
fountain has supplanted tho saloon
In many places. COCA-COLA Is now
not only made by" the parent com
pany In Atlanta, but also by branch
houses In Philadelphia, Chicago,
Dallas, Tex., and Los Angeles, Cal.
In the fall of 907 thp War Do
partment, upon representations that
had been made to it, .Issued order
directing that the sale of COCA
ICOLA by Army Post Exchanges Ho
discontinued, The COCA-COLA peo
ple naturally objected to this ruling
nnd the War Department turned over
a sample of COCA-COLA tq the Ru
reau of Chemistry of the Agricul
tural Department for analysis. From
tho chemist's report it appears that
the beverage contains no appreciable
quantity of alcohol; thot It contains
no cocaine and but a small quantity
or caffeine. The result of the Inves
tigation shqwed that the original or
der of exclusion was unjust alid was
ut once revoked.
Perhnps the most conclusive evi
dence that COCA-COLA is a harm
less beverage Is tho action taken by
the authorities In Pennsylvania. Dr.
II. H. Warren, tho Dairy nnd rood
Commissioner 6f tho State, caused an
uuuiyws io ue made and reported as
a result of coie.fu analysis: "No co-

mond, State Chemist of Virginia;
Dr. Louis Schaefer, President of tho
Schaefer Alkaloid Works, Maywood,
N, J., a chemist or world-wide repu-
, tatlon, and many other eminent
chemists, agree that COCA-COLA Is
absolutely harmless, it Is not only
harmless, but Is genuinely good to
the taste and an aid to digestion.
