by the supreme court some ten years
ago and which was held to be unconsti
tutional by 'a vote of five to four. It
was conceded that the tax would prob
ably raise $150,000,000 to $200,000,000,
winch was far in excess of The needs
of the government if tho tariff bill was
to retain its general form, as proposed,
and so to produce revenues which
should be reasonably expected. Our
friends, the Democrats, favored tho in
come tax with a review to substituting
It for ho tariff as an income-producing
measure, thus minimizing the ef
fect of the tariff in protecting the in
dustries of tho country.
'Tn other words, I he passage of the
income tax bill would have lent sup
port probably to tho proposition lo have
a tariff revenue only, and would have
interfered with the protective policy
to which (he Republican party is
"One further objection to tho income
lax amendment was that; it hael been
declared unconstitutional by tho su
preme court, and to involve a second
decision upon that issue was lo ques
tion the uniformity of the decisions of
the supreme court, and to drag the
court into a 7oliticul discussion which,
whatever its decision, would not make
for its standing as an impartial tribunal
before the people, lr indicated a diver
sify of view between congress and tho
courts (wo ro-ordinnte branches with
reference lo Tho constitutionality of the
law which it seemed unwise to por
poTiiato in a formal statute. But the
im-oni( tax .imondinent. seemed entile
likely to pass by vote of all the Demo
crats and a sullicient number of Repub
licans. Therefore those who wore op
posed lo llio income tax amendment
looked about to see if a compromise
could not be proposed less objectionable
than (he income tax amendment, which
would satisfy enough Republicans who
were inclined to favor the income tax
to prevent the passage of that amend
ment. "Such a compromise "was found in
a proposal to pass the present corpora
tion tax, and also the joint resolution
already referred to. proposing an
amendment of tho federal constitution
lo tho stales authorizing (ho general
government lo imposo an income tax
without apportioning it as a direct tax
according to tho population of the
"The provisions for the corporation
tax in- the bill exempt all corporations
whose net income does not exceed
$5000. H is, therefore, in effect, an in
come tax; that ist it taxes earnings act
ually made. It is a tax upon success
and not upon failure.
"The most objectionable feature of
a direct income tax is the premium up
on perjury which it offers to those who
nre willing to conceal (heir incomes
a matter not, at all diflieult to do and
who thus subject to a much heavier
proportionate burden those who arc
conscientious in making thoir returns
and who pa' their lax as the law in
tended. So great was this evil in tho
levy of an income tax in Knglaud that
wheu that tax was imposed directly
upon individuals, as was proposed here
in the so-called income tax amendment
bill, it was found that tire proceeds
of the tax at 10 per cent were loss than
the proceeds of an ineomo tax of 5 per
cent imposed as our corporation tax is,
not upon the individuals directly, but
upon the income before it comes into
"This is a practical argument; in fa
vor of the corporation lax as against
an individual income tax that is alto
"In England, after a hundred years
of experience, the income tax is levied
in onlv exceptional instances on the
individual directly.' It is first levied
on tho declared dividends of corpora
tions; secondly, on rents before they
leave the hands of the tenants, and.
Jinally. on the individual with respect
(o matters that arc not covered by
rents and corporate investments.
"Another distinction which is made
in the English law, and which com
mends itself to every one with a sense
of justice, is that the income tax on
passive a'nd permanent investments,
like tho stocks and bonds in a cor
poration, should be higher than on
earned incomes; that is, incomes earned
by the services of the individual as sal
ary or as a professional income. Earned
incomes thus described arc really the
proceeds of an application of tho capi
tal of tho individual which is being
consumed and will be entirely used up
at the end of his professional life of
twenty or thirty years, whereas the
income from corporate and business in
vestments will continue permanently
without regard as to whether the. owner
lives or dies, and will pass on by suc
cession of law undiminished and with
out reducing 'the capital.
"This distinction justifies making a
difference between a tax upon the in
come of corporations and that of indi
viduals where they earn their incomes
by services, either by making the rale
less or by not taking the earned in
come at all. Tho latter is the effect
of the corporation tax.
Tax Is Criticised.
"Another criticism of the corpora
lion tax in the present bill is'that only
shares of stock in corporate enterprises
aro thus taxed, and that those who own
bonds secured by mortgage upon tljc
entire property or plant of the corpora
tor do not pa' any tax at all. This
is true, and the defect was fully recog
nized by those who drafted tho cor
poration tax. They would have been
glati. if possible, to impose a tax upon
the bondholders who, arc only less in
terepted in tho earnings and success of
I the corporations than are stockholelers,
but (he difficulty of including llieni
Mid of collecting from the corporation
before the payment of interest on tho
bonds an income tax proportioned lo a
percentage of tho interest to be paid
on tho bonds, was that congress could
not authorize a corporation to recoup
:fsclf in the payment of such a lax from
the interest to be paid, because thus
to imposo a tax on the bondholder pro
portioned to tho, interest he received
would be in violation of I ho constitu
tion as interpreted by Uic .supreme
court as an income tax not apportioned
among tht slates.
"Now, if the proposed amendment
to tho constitution authorizing tho im
position ol an income tax without ap
portioning it among the r.tatcs accord
10 population passes, it will bo pos
sible lo add to our corporation tax the
1 enure of the imposing a tax on the
bonded ml crests in thar, corporation bv
a percentage lax upon interest lo bo
paid, thus reducing tho amount of in
terest which tho corporation would pay
to the bondholders to tho extent of the
Moro Beneficial Measure.
"This would make the corporation
tax a more beneficial measure, and one
reaching interests thai ought to be
reached because, under modem systems
of tinancing corporations. I he bond
holders and stockholders are all of them
m a senso joint investors, and a cor
porntiou income lax ought to includo
them all. Under the conditions that ex
isted with reference to the constitution,
it seems to mo clear that tho corpora-,
tion tax is an equitable burden, one
reaching activo business, not too heavy
to retard it, but enough to collect ii
substantial revenue from those who are
successful in business.
"It is a tax easily collected one
that no corporation can escape ono in
which perjnry cannot play any. impor
tant part at all in an' effort to escape
"Another feature of it is that in
cidentally it will give the federal gov
ernment, an opporluni(3r to secure most
valuable information in respect to the
conduct of corporations, their actual
fin ancinl conditions, which they arc rc
q Hired to show in general terms in a
public return. In addition, the law
provides that means under proper limi
tations of investigating fullv and in de
tail their course of business.
Taking of Evidence.
"This is t bo done only after the
commissioner of internal revenue shall
havo ascertained from evidence that
their returns required by law are not
correct. Then the evideiico which ho
secures by his investigations of .books
and papers and examination of wit
nesses is not lo be mado public, but
to bo held in the secret archives of the
government until the president shall
deem it of public interest a'nd, accord
ing to justice, to make the facts known.
"Up lo this limo wo havo no ade
quate statistics concerning our corpora
tions. ISvon the stockholders, what
ever their right may he to know the
course of business of corporations, are
generally in a state of complete ignor
ance, and any instrumentality by which
corporations shall bo compelled lo dis
close with accuracy a general state
ment of their, conditions certainly makes
for the public good.
"Indirectly it would help very much
in another re-icSmi ivlinnnvni. ili-.f 0I...11
come, because corijo rations engaged in
business said lo beM'ouled bv the tariff
will have upon record in Washington
their exact financial condition from year
to year in the matter of their income,
their expenditures and their debts.
"Having said this much with respect
to tho corporation tax as it is, I want
to say :i few words in favor of the
income lax amendment as proposed bv
congress to the stares. Assuming the
constitutional authority to have been
given, 1 am opposed to a general indi
vidual income lax law, except in times
of great national stress. I am opposed
lo it because of tho difficulty already
alluded, that it puts such a" premium
on perjury as to have led other gov
ernments to abandon that method of
levying an income tax and of imposing
the tax whenever nossiblo on the snurcpK !
of income in the hands of thoso who are
not ultimately to pay it.
"The instance I have already given
of an increase of 100 per cent in the
proceeds of the tax when changed from
a personal tax to ono upon the sources
of the income, liko our corporation tax,
is a most forcible argument in favor
of the proposition that the inquisi
torial feature of an income tax levied
directly upon the person, together with
the inevitable opportunities for escape
from the tax by use of perjury, makes
it desirable if possible lo avoid such
a direct method of levying an income
Amendment Is Favored.
"But 1. am most strongly in favor
of adoption bv the slates of the amend
ment authorizing congress to impose
an income tax without apportioning it
among the slates according to popula
tion; and 1 am strongly in favor of this
because in times of great stress, if war
or some other calami 1 3 wore lo visit
this countiy, and wo should need lo
strain our resources, llio income fax
would be one of the eKsential instru
ments by which we could collect a
largo amount of money to enable us to
meet the exigencies. It has been so in
the past, for during the civil war it was
understood that the levy of an income
lax without apportionment was consti
tutional, and such a tax was levied and
collected. And I consider it in the con
stitution, as tit present construed, an
elemental weakness on the part of the
central government not to be able in
times of emergenc3' to -levy such a lax.
"Of course it will be said by those
who are opposed to the income tax that
there will be a disposition to impose
a direct income tax merely as a means
of collecting ordinary income taxes in
normal times, and that no distinction
can be made in tho constitution bv
which tho power to levy such a tax can
be limited to times of emergency be
cause it. is impossible lo describe "what
the emergency should be. I agree with
that, and T ngreo that there is a proba
bility thai at times the desire to tax
accumulated wealth will lead to the
movement in favor of a direct income
tax, but I am also confident that its
inquisitorial character, and the fact
that in time the opportunity for per
jury will show it to bo so ineffective
in reaching the persons whom it is
sought to reach by a proportionate rate,
that it will bo wise to adopt the course
taken, in England and other countries
having great experience with such a tax,

and to follow tho course of taxing onr
corporations rather than by di reef per
sonal imposition, except in great emer
gencies. Equitable Adjustment.
"If tho income tax amendment
passes, as 1 hope it liiay, we can then
enlargo the corporation tax so as lo
includo a proper burden on the bond
holders in corporations as well ns up
on the shareholders; and this will make
this instrument of taxation even more
equitable than it now is.
4 "Those who favor a directly personal
lneomo tax for. the purpose oi' restrain
ing great wealth will probably find it
lnellective, for the reasons given.
"1 have already considered in a
speech which I made in Columbus in
1907. how our great fortunes could be
divided without drastic confiscatory
methods. Jt seems to mo now, as it did
then, that (he proper authority lo re
duce the size of fortunes is the state
rather than the central government.
Let the state pass laws of inheritance
which shall require Ihe division of great
fortunes between tho children of the
docedants and shall not permit a multi
millionaire to leave his fortune in trust
so as to keep it. in a mass; make much
more drastic the rule against perpetui
ties which obtain at common law; and
then impose a heavy and graduated in
heritance tax, which shall enable the
slate lo share largely in the proceeds
of such large accumulations of wealth
which Njould hardly have been brought
anour. save tnrougn its protection and
its aid. In this way, gradually, but ef
fectively, the concentration of wealth
in one hand or a few hands will bo
neutralized and the danger to tho re
public which has been anticipated bv
a continuation through generations of
such acccumulating fortunes, will be ob
viated. Uses of Income Tax.
"The use of the income tax itself
for this purpose will, 1 think, never
bo very successful because of the de
lect alrcad' indicated the difficulty of
finding tho income upon which to' im
pose the tax and iho opportunity that
perjury will offer to escape it. An in
heritance tax cannot be thus escaped
because wheu a man dies his property
must come before some court for con
sideration and adjudication with a view
to its legal transmission, and therefore
those who are to succeed., however re
luctant, must alwaj's make a showing
of just what the deceased left in order
that they may acquire valid title to the
"It seems, therefore, that the pres
ent congress has taken (he wisest course
in adopting as much of tho features of
an income tax as conforms to the con
stitution, and by recommending an
amendment to tho constitution, which
shall enable us to round out and per
fect this corporation tax so as to make
it more equitable and so n-s to make it
an instrument of supervision of cor
porate wealth by federal authority. I
doubt not, thaWhe information thus ob
tained may be made a basis for further
legislation of a regulative character
applicable only lo those, corporations
whoso business is so largely of an in
terstate character as to justify greater
restrictions and moro direct supervision."

the most popular Republican politicians
in the state.
In Ihe meantime. Johnson's political
record had become known far and wide
and he was in demand as speaker at
political gatherings and chautauqua as
