TOO MUCH TAXATION ON BUSI
NESS AND THE REMEDY.
There Is too much direct taxation
on business and our law makers un
not using good Judgment
The wealth of this country him been
built up by tunings out ot profits In
business. There are no such savings
today. Ono of the pessimistic Influ
ences in tho present situation Is that.
ulinrnn In former Derlods of bOOIUS
in business, the merchant who made
a largo profit, while spending liberal
ly, was enabled to put generous sums
back Into his business to provldo for
the reaction that wns certain to come,
wo now have a situation where, due
to tho last tlueo jcars of business
boom, prollts have been large; yet
merchants have had to pay out of
ithor Income taxes or excess protltn
taxes, praetlcnlly all that they havu
earned over their living epenses.
and when tho losses due to the read
justment of values are leglstercd.
many will have sulYoteil materlol re
ductions In their resources, which
would ordinarily be rolled upon to
meet these losses.
If this keeps up business will bo
Theio Is only one way to escape
this, and that Is through a tax on
sales, in which every citizen of the
rnlted States, ns well as any for
eigner who may live within our shore
will pay equally toward tho expenses
of tho Government and have his stake
in tho country.
JOHN FLETCHER OBJECTS TO
POLITICAL MUD SLINGING
"This country Is greator than its

men must tuko an Interest in pol
itics," snld John riotcher, vlco presi

Accident Underwriters' association at
tho Hotol La Snlle. "There should be
less mudsllnglng in politics nnd nioro

your dollar will onco more buy a dol
