A novel suggestion o the sub
ject of taxation comes indirectly
through theState Department from
Venezuela. No-w that political
economy is so largely occupying the
public mind the suggestion may be
very interesting and valuable to
revenue esperts. The municipal
council of Caracas has promulgated
a law which provides for an impost
on all baclielors residing within the
jurisdiction. Every unmarried
man over thirty-five v? required to
pay an income tax of 1 per cent, on
an income of not more than $5,000,
or 2 per ceut- if his income exceeds
that amount. The poetic justice of
this thing-is in making these men
