COMBINE REVENUE OFFICER
On A c f W. l o' P Pre
Coutinuation cf TL:o Collec
Washington, October 11.-For som
time a rumor has been current her
that the commissioner of internal re
venue, John G. Capers, contemplatei
the consolidation of the revenue of
ficers of Georgia and South Carolin.
in order to effect a* saving of expensi
to the Government. This movemen
nas been brought about by the sprea<
of prohibition in the two states men
tioned and elsewhere. The loss o:
revenue to the government by reasoi
of the closing of many liquor estab
lishments and the consequent crowd
ing of forces has made the officials o:
the revenue bureau here consider th,
question of consolidation.
Mr. Caper-, returned to Washingto1
from the south to-day and when seer
by The News and Courier correspond
ent. said: "I am securing all the
data possible on this subject, but a!
vet have taken no offcial action. Th(
consolidation of the various collec
tion districts would have to be don(
by executive order."
According to the report Georgi
and South Carolina are to be consoli
dated in one collection district, and
all the work placed uaded Micah Jen.

being abolished and the collecto
there put out of office.
After January 1 Georgia will b
dry, so far as liquors are concerned
while half of the South Carolins
counties still sell whiskey under th(
dispensary law. The business in thE
latter state -would exceed that fron:
Georgia. It is practically admittbi
that after January 1 next there wil
be little need of a collector in Geor
gia. In the fiscal year 1906 the tota
collection for revenue in Georgia wer
$595,985, of which $372,3S2 - cam<
from distilled spirits and $184,01.
fermented drinks, lea*ng . a1mos1
nothing from tobacco and the fe
other sources. With these revenue
gone the total collections from Geor
gia would probably amount to les
than $50,000 a year.
The only thing against carrying ou
a programme of consolidation o:
Southern states into new districts fo
the next year or so lies in the fac
that to do so 'would be to abolisl
much of the political maehinery b:
which the Administration expects t<
control the Southern vote in the nex
National COonvention. As Capt. Ca
pers is one of the Administratior
leaders in Southern politics he migh1
hesitate at too early action of a con
solidation nature. Georgia must b<
brought into lind in the next Conven
i-'- and the collector of internal re
venuea~ of that state and his force o:
men have heretofore been importan1
factors in selecting delegates.

Washington, October 11.-Conmmis
sioner Capers, of the internal revenut
bureau has under consideration thE
rearrangement and consolidation fo:
revenue collection purposes of a num
ber of southern and southwesterr
states. The constitution of Oklaho
ma, which was recently adopted, ab
solutely prohibits sale of 'intoxicating
liquors as a beverage within the stat<
borders, and on January 1, 1908, corn
plete prohibition goes into effect it
Georgia. South Carolina by receni
action of the state is partly unde3
prohibition and partly under the dis
pensary system. To meet these chang
ed conditions the commissioner hat
in contemplation the consolidation o:
Oklahoma with Arkansas as one re
venue division, Georgi's and Souti
Carolina as another, M ssissippi ani
Louisiana and possibly Alabama as
third. As an alternative Alabamt
may be consolidated with Florida. T<
earry in'to effect these changes wouli
necessitate an Executive order by th<
President, but the action of some o:
the states as to the sale of intoxicat
ing liquors seems to the internal re
venue officials to make some action 0:
