United States will soon have an in
come tax on its statutes.
first of all it means that million
aires, will for the first time since
this nation has stood, bear a fair
proportion of the burden of tax
ation. It is estimated that one hundred
million dollars will be raised annu
ally by taxing incomes. This will
mean that the amount of taxation
is to be taken off of the things that
the people must have in order to
live, and placed on wealth.
Under the system of protection
as played in this country, nearlv

to run the government, maintain
the army and navy, construct pub

and use. The only thing that pro

man with a fortune of ten million
dollars has not been required to pay
a single penny of tax to the nation
al government. This seems almost
unbelievable, but its true. The
man working on the section for one
dollar and fifty cents per day, with
a family of five children, is at the
present time actually contributing
