CLARK PRA'ISES MOVE
7-t Is e Merit that the Democratic pro
posal in the House, through the Ways
and Means Committee, to put sugar on
the tree list and reimburse the revenues
by an extension ot the corporation tax
cannot pars the Senate Many of the
Democratic Senators are opposed to it,
and quite a number, of the progressive
Republican Senators. Without the totes
of all the Democrats and practically all
of the progresslte Repuollcans, the free
sugar bill cannot pass.
iome ot the progresshe Senators ob
ject to free sugar because their States
srow beets, and the Importation of raw
nugar free would injure that lndustr)
Other Senators do not favor the exten

Milft Tax to Short-holder.
One Senator told of an experience he
had with the corporations In his own
State at the time the corporation tax
amendment it as substituted In the Sen
ate for the income tax amendment. He
found himself suddtnlj deluged with tel
egrams from his State, sent by corpo
rations urging him to support tCe cor
poration fix Instead of the Income tax.
He learned that the corporations had
sent him the telegram at the request
ot tne r correspondents in New York
City, and he sas that he then concluded
that the -nealthy men Pentad the cor
porations were seeking to shift the bur
den of taxation from themselves, to the
corporations, where the shareholders
would have to bear the burden.
TsTentjelsjlit Mates tpprove.
At the Treasur Department exception
was taken to the statement of Repre
sentative Cordell Hull, of Tennessee, that
the present corporation tax law exempts
holding companies. It was explained at the
Treasurj that the only exemption allowed
Is to aoid double taxation. The holding
company is not taxed on so much of its
holdings as has already been assessed
In the hands of the subsidiary companies,
but on all other holdings the holding
companj is subject to taxation.
The fact came on' jesterda) In con
nection with the opposition to income
tax advocates against the proposed ex
tension of the corporation tax that up
to this time twent -eight States In the
Vnlon hare ratified the Income tax
amendment and sent their official noti
fications to the Secretan of State. Only
eight more States are necessary to the
ratification to engraft the amendment on
the Federal Constitution. The States
tint hae ratified are the following
Alabama Arkansas, California, Colo
rado, Georgia. Idaho. Illinois. Indiana.
