The Sixteenth Amendment.
The Sixteenth Amendment to the constitution of the United
States has been ratified by the legislatures of thirty eight states,
two more than the required three-fourths. It gives Congress the
power "to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source
derived, without apportionment among the several states, and with
out regard to any census or enumeration."
Congress having been given this power what is its duty ? We
believe that it should at once proceed to pass an income tax law,
Some argue that no such duty devolves upon Congress ; that the
amendment simply gives congress the power to act but that it does
not follow that it should act at once as present conditions do not
demand such action and the provision is solely for the purpose of
giving congress the power to pass a law when the necessity shall
As viewed in the light of history, is this argument good ? We
think not. The Sixteenth Amendment is the only amendment to
the constitution in forty three years. In 1893 Congress passed an
income tax law which the Supreme Court held unconstitutional.
For this reason those favoring an income tax law proposed amend
ing the constitution. Finally in 1909 both houses of Congress by a
three-fourths vote passed the proposed amendment and now three
fourths of the states by their legislatures have ratified it.
Since a few years after the close of the Civil War, there has been
practically as much need for an income tax at one time as another.
The members of Congress believed that the people wanted this law
or- they never would have passed the amendment, as most of them
were voting to impose a tax upon their own incomes. The members
of the state legislatures that ratified it also thought that the people
wanted it or they would not have voted for it, because it is not the
type of measure that is passed by a legislature against the wishes
of the people.
The people believe that an income tax is fair and just and Con
gress should pass one at once. We can see no reason why one
should not be passed. It is only right that the people who are re
ceiving the largest benefits from government should pay for keep
ing it up ; that those who can best afford to pay for maintaining the
government should do so. A person's income is the best gauge of
his ability to pay. An income tax it is hoped and believed will take
some of the burden of the support and maintenance of the govern
ment off of the shoulders of the poor and put it on the shoulders of
the rich, where we believe it belongs.
But it's opponents says that it will make a nation of liars. If
a man will lie about his income to prevent paying a tax on it, he is
already lying about how much property he has to prevent paying a
tax on it. It is not making a liar out of him, because he was already
It's opponents also say that it will be unjust, as incomes derived
from certain sources are much more definitely determined than
from others : that the man on a salary will almost certainly pay

The most notable revival of modern times came to a close at
Columbus Sunday night. The meetings lasted seven weeks and J
18,149 people were converted. On Sunday a collection of $20,795
was taken up for Rev. Billy Sunday. J
The meetings from the beginning were marked by remarkable '
attendance and wonderful religious enthusiasm. AH classes of
people were among the converts, rich and poor, society women and physicians did what they could to re

It is the doing of good that is important not how it is done.
Mr. Sunday has done a great work in Columbus, as he has done
every place he has been, and deserves commendation and praise,
not criticism and villification. Many of the things he does, do not
appeal to us and are not the way we think they should be done, but
he gets results and we are always willing to take off our hats to a
man who secures results in a good work.
Billy Sunday is a great man, doing a great work : a man of
marvelous eloquence and rare personal magnetism ; a man, who
knows how to appeal to the best in his fellowman ; a-man, who
knows how to depict the shame and degredation of sin and crime ;
a man who is unafraid ; a man who is living a pure, noble, unselfish
life ; a life truly dedicated to the welfare of humanity.

When you hear a man condemning an income tax law as unjust,
unfair, an invasion of the rights of the people, it is a good bet that
his income is so large that he will have to pay on it.
If it was as easy to please people by something you say about
them in the paper as it is to displease them, managing a newspaper
would be a much more pleasant occupation.
