NOT TRYING TO DODGE.
Latimer Willing to Pay Income Tax
If Its the Law.
Washington, Dec. 11.-Senator Lat
imer says that he has not in any way
endeavored to dodge paying his ill
come tax. When today lie was shown bi
the editorial in The State of last Sat- C
urday, in which he and Senator Till
man were criticised for not paying
this tax, lie said: CI
"I don't care to enter any news- b
paper controversy about this, but I a'
have scn several allusions to it, and
I think those who have criticised me C
might have looked into the facts be- a
fore doing it. I made my returns in k
full to the auditor of Anderson coun
ty, returning all the property I have.
I did not return my income from my
salary as senator, but I took the pains
when I made my returns to write a
let(er to the auditor stating that from
conversatiois held witi Senator Till
man and others, who I thioiglt ouiht
to kniow, I was under the impression
that. the salary I was drawing from
the United States government was not
subject to Ile income tax, expecting
that. if lie or the otiier officers of the
comty or tlie State should be a conl
trIry.V opinlionl I woIlli he nlotified,
whien or Course he tax on tle income
would be paid.
'lefore leaving home I instructed
Mr. Horton of Belton, who attends to
such matters for me, to pay all my
taxes. Ie would also pay the income
tax if it were considered subject to
taxation, or he would wire me about
it. Of course, if this income is not
-subject to taxation I am not going to
pay it, as all of us pay only those
taxes we are expected to pay. I do
not, (hink it is my especial job to say
whether my salary is or is not sub
ject to taxation. But. I have made no
effort to dodge it. By the letter I
wrote to the comty auditor, I placed
the mater up to those who have the
tax lisiless in hand.'
