DISTRICT "REST HAVEN"
FOR RICH TAX DODGERS,
JOHNSON TELLS HOUSE
Uflcle Joe Cannon Declares Government Clerks in
Capital Are Suffering From Dry-Rot and
Lost Ambitions Small Homes Declared
PROPOSED BORLAND AMENDMENT
THREATENS REAL ESTATE MEN
Characterizing Washington as "the haven of rest" for
the "tax dodger" and bitterly attacking the half-and-half
principle, as it relates to the District and Federal govern
mentSj Chairman Johnson of the District Committee made
a sensational speech in the House today during the consid
eration of the- District appropriation" bill.
Mr. Johnson charged that approximately 40,000 small
homes in the District are overtaxed and that it was notori
ously true that the richer classes in the District are not pay
ing their burden of taxation.
"Uncle Joe" Cannon, who also participated in the debate, asserted
that a majority of the people in the District were poor and that the
Government clerks here "lose track of their former homes, lose ambi
4 tloa and finally go Into dry rot"
? The debate was incidental to the Borland amendment to the District
bill; which will turn real estate circles upside down if it becomes a law,
and which materially modified the entire system of street improvement
In the District

.trlct and .Federal Governments; Mr. Borland proposed that the owners-1
shall jay approximately 50 per cent of such street improvements and the
amendment if finally adopted probably will have, a far-reaching effect
and depreciate the price of all District real estate.
ACCUSES CLERKS OF "DRY ROT."
Mr. Cannon's reference to the Gov
ernment clerks was made during his
speech In opposition to the amend
ment, which he aserted would work
a hardship upon the small merchants
anil comparatively poor people.
Congressman Johnson spoke for
half an hour in denunciation of the
half-and-half .rule and In criticism
of "the tax-escaping rich."
Rock Creek Park Again.
He asserted that Rock Creek Park
had been' unloaded" upon the Gov
ernment at six times its value.
tr "A-recent Investigation showed." con
tinued Mr. Johnson, "that there wan
but .one man in the District who had
the courage to admit that he was un-
dertaxed. This man was Ginord I'ln

Congressman SIsslon charged that
land, between the Capitol and the I'nlon
Station. which Is being purchased by
the Government, was condemned at $6 a
square foot, whereas It was worth only
51 a square foot.
"Does not the Government generally

"J. don't want to make any statt-mcnt

Congressman Johnson made a vigor
ous attack upon half-and-half principle
in the District declaring that this ar

Federal Government had been made
when there was a "city" of Washington
of only a; few thousands square acres.

would be Increased If a source of

It was the opinion of the opponents of
the bill that 1 per cent a month, the
maximum fixed by the legislation In

pawn broker to continue In business.

what they please and to make as much

As against these arguments W. II.

Judge Pugh made his declaration, in

that she wanted permits regarding

"You will very likely get the per

with .which tho parking authorities

whether or not the tree which your
men cut down was dead, dying or alive
seems to practically corroborate .that."
Mrs. Henderson arrived at the ;Court

In the witness room until It came; time
for her to testify. She frankly admit

and that she ordered her men to saw

"I was doing the District's work: by

often before, and anticipate I will have

not Just the proper thing to do to cut
It down without a permit. I am will
to accept the consequences."
Assistant Superintendent of Trees and

averse to testifying as to the condition
