he Union's Bewildering Pre
dicament. 3 NOW POSING AS A REFORMER
Blame. Chief Sexton's Method of Hand-
line the Notorious Mary as ao Obstacle
to Changing Her Wars and the Police
Should Not Molest "This Class" Anyway.
If some one who has the faculty to
o so will ascertain what the imbe-
ile Union would like to have Ilock
sland converted iuto. there would
no doubt be inaugurated forthwith a
movement to carry out its ideas to
he letter. But at the present time
t seems to be afllicted with an at
tack of incohcrency that actually
arouses pity to behold. Its bewil-
ering predicament is painful.
(Jontronlod with the penalty for
ts unwarranted libel on Chief Scx-
011, it was seized with a paroxism in
which it will be recalled it attacked
the entire town, terming it rotteii,
and wound up by following the ex-
aui)iu ui mo iiaiian in Aitiion Co
ble's dramatic prod uction it damned
everybody. Not only the chief, but
the mayor and the aldermen and
the aldermen from Elgin, who came
to Kock Island as the city's guests
all came in for abuse. But the chief
burden of the Union's comdemnatarv
utterances was the assumption that
lawlessness, iniquity and vice were
carried on in Kock Island in ashame-
cssly open manner: that scarlet wo.
men paraded the streets, and that
vice was unchecked.-
Condemned tor Acting.
In the same connection it threw
out the intimation that it possessed
wic Knowledge or a tcrnblo.misilc
meanor that Chief Sexton had been
guilty of and which, as a favor to
him, it had suppressed. Yesterday
when forced to do so, it revealed this
offense, which was nothinjr more
han that he had muzzled a notorious
character, Mary Woods, who had bo
come blasphemous and indecent
while resisting the police raid upon
her den of vice. Now this raorniiif
t shifts its position again and de-
"When Tuk Akol'3 attempts to
ustify Marshal Sexton's abuse of a
depraved woman, that paper sinks to
a lower level than the woman has
illen. Articles of that kind arc
seized upon as an excuse by men of
Sexton's stripe and their harshness
u the treatment of the depraved and
the vicious makes it next to impossi
uie lor reiormation to be successfully
carried on among these classes,
Those who are interested in reformat
tory work in this city will bear the
Union out in this statement. When
the vicious do not pay their "assess
ments" with reasonable regularity
and amiableness, the police have no
more use for them, but The Akci s
can't justify the jxdice in killing off
this class or in abusing any member
The Police Inty.
Chief Sexton did not iro to Mary
Woods' house to reform her he
went there to arrest her for violation
of law. The police are not hired to
go about with little tracts in their
hands pursuing reformatory nieth
ods. and if they waited until they
had accomplished a reform with some
of the criminals they handle before
exerting force, the arrests would be
few and far between however, the
Union will not be molested in itE
views of how to suppress lawless
ness. The insinuation that the po
lice are muuenced by the 'asses-
ments" is another libel and falsehood
as far as it has any meaning, but the
climax is that the police have 110
right to kill off this class they
must jusi reiorm them, treat them
gently and perhaps the spirit will
move them after awhile, and then the
law will be vindicated.
Nice town this would be with all the
lust the Union remorselessly declares
exists here, if the Union were to pro
vide tne remeuv.

was released from the state reforma
tory last fall, where he had spent
year or so for a similar offense, and
since then has conducted himself in
a straightforward manner. He

sessed of a mania for stealing. Yes
terday morning he entered Bloom'

and Seventh avenue, and while the
proprietor was in the barn hitchin

drawer. He left the store, and meet
ing Johnnie Davis, another lad about
the same age, he hired a horse an
buggy and the two went to Moline
and visited froepect park, returnin
in the afternoon. Joe was afterward
arrested and lodged in jail.' Th

THE INCOME TAX.
The Provisions for Collecting It Coder the
' Kew lw,r
The income tax provisions of the
new law adopted by the recent con
gress docs not go into effect until
Jan. 1 next. On that day every per
son naving an income exceeding f.i,
500 per year must make a return to
the collector in the district in which
he lives of the exact amount of his
income of the year before. The tax
tsclf is not due until the brst day of
the following July, although it may
be paid at any time after Jan. 1.
After the return made by the tax
payers is received it is sent by the
collector to the internal revenue bu
reau at Washington, where the as
sessment of 2 per cent is made.
Kvery jierson who gathers in more
than $3,600 per year must send in a
statement of his earnings to the col-
ector,' but it is only those whose in
comes arc f 4,00() or over that arc
taxed. If the collector has reason to
believe that the statements of earn
ings sent in by the taxpayer is too
low he can investigate, and if he sees
good reason for such action he can
raise the amount to what he believe
to be correct. The taxpayer can ap
peal to the commissioners of internal
revenue at Washington, who will or
der that testimony be taken, and the
government has the right to present
vidence in rebuttal. The tax falls
upon all officers of the government
as well as the officers of the army and
avy who earn more than $4,000.
Stale, county and municipal officers
are the only individuals exempted.
I he bill leaves many things in con
nection with the collection of the
tax to be settled by the internal rev
enue department, but in a general
way the tax will be collected in the
same manner that all internal reve
nue taxes arc collected. The jht
sons who arc subject to the tax will
Iks classed as special taxpayers, along
with the manufacturers of oleomar
garine, tobacco and liquors, w ho pay
special taxes now. lue law is se
vere and contains provisions which
will make it very uneoraforta-
lc for those who neglect to pay or
refuse to comply with it.
If a taxpayer fails to make his re
turn on Jan. 1 of each year he is lia
ble to a penalty of 50"peroent. If
he neglects or refuses to pay after
the tax becomes due on July 2 he is
assessed 5 per cent additional as pen
alty, with interest at 1 per cent per
month until the tax is paid. When
the tax is overdue, a notice is sent to
the taxpayer, and if it is not obeyed.
a'n'trcunt warrant is issued, and any
proiierty of the taxpayer can be
seized by the government.
If the return of the taxpayer as to
the amount of his income is found
no small, a penalty of 60 per cent
can De audeu.
If it is found that the return is
wilfully fraudulent and made with
the intention of evading the tax, the
peualty is 100 per cent.
1 he taxpayer can also be prose
cuted criminally for making a false
return, so it will not be easy for any
one to evade payment.

The democrats of the Tenth con-
gressional district and of the Thirty

has been his home since youth. He
is in every sense a self-made man. is
a student of tariff reform and the
other doctrines of the true democ

republicans will find that they will
not have the snap they have counted
on in the lenth district this vear
As a matter of fact. Mr. Olson will
go into the fight with the intention
of winning, and with his immense
following and his superior intellect
