The income tax becomes operative
Jan. 1. 105, and a tax of two per
cent will be assessed on all personal
incomes for tbe preceding calendar
year above (I.OUO.
According to Secretary Carlisle the
tax need not be paid before July 1 of
the time year.
Tbe inquisitorial features which
were contained in the bill as origin
ally drawn have all been wiped out,
and tbe tax ia now no more obnox
ious, ao far as the mode of assessing
and collecting it is concerned, than
an v other tax.
The objections which are now
raised against it come chiefly from
politicians who represent wealthy
constituencies, and who believe that
they will add to their chances of re.
election by declaiming against the
tax, and from a class of citizens best
described aa "skinflints," who object
to taxation of every kind.
M tbe provisions of the new law
become understood, however, we do
not believe that any honest man for
tunate enough to have an income of
over S4.U00 will seriously object to
the tax. He should have patriotism
enough to band over his little 2 per
cent on the excess of $1,000
without a murmur. His life and
property have been protected by the
government, and perhaps bis fortune
has been accumulated, in whole or in
part, not so much as a result of his
extraordinary industry as on account
ol tbe operation of laws which have
given him an advantage over tbe
mass of his fellow citizens.
Be that as it may, if he is asked to
pay more than his neighbor it is be
cause he has got more. When his
neighbor comes into possession of a
rat income ne win no aoabt be lad
to contribute, too. Before the com
ing campaign has proceeded vervfar.
candidates and stump speakers will
find that no votes are to be gained by
abusing the democratic party for
adopting a moderate tax on incomes.
The working masses are in favor of
tbis innovation, and they are the
ones that will decide the election.
A Moalcml Legend of the Chinese
Tho Chinose have pome extraordinary
superstitious relating to music. Accord
ing to their queer notions, tho Creator
of the universe hid eight sounds iu the
earth for the express purpose of com
pelling man to find thorn out. On tbe
same principle, it is presumed, Jupiter,
according to Virgil, hides fire in flints
and boney in trees in order to whet the
ardor of man's industry to persevere in
his efforts to rediscover the hidden treas
ures. According to the Celestial Ide, the
eight primitive pounds are hidden in
stones Pilks woods of various kinds, the
bauilxxi plant, pumplins, iu the tkius
of animals, in certain earths nnd in the
air itself. Any one who has ever had the
pleasure (?) of seeing and listening to a
Chinese crclKwtra will remember that
their musical iiitruincxits were made of
all these materials except tho last, and
t!:nt the combined efforts of the other
seven Feemed better calculated to drive
tho ethereal sound away than to coax it
from the air, which is reully tho object
of all Chinese musical efforts. When the
bands plays, tho naive credulity of the
people, both old nnd young, hears in
the thuds of the gongs nnd the whistling
of tho pipes the tone's of the eternal
Hounds of nature that were originally
deposited in the various animate and in
animate objects by the all wise Father.
