.-xime important suggestions were
embodied In the annual report ot the
superintendent ot railway mail ser
vice looking to the protection of the
mails and the safety of the mail
clerks. The vestible'in use on pas
senger cars is recommended for mail
ears. The danger of wrecking the
cars would be diminished in a cer
tain degree, and it is believed that
the clerks would do more work and
lctter work because of the diminished
oscillation of the cars. The officers
of the service have several times
recommended . improved . arrange
ments for lighting in the following
order of preference: Electricity as
soon as it is practicable, next to this
gas and next the best kerosene lamps.
It is obvious that lighting with oil
lamps introduces the danger of fire
from that source. In the report for
lS'Ji were five lires which were sup
nsed to have originated from the
lamps. Besides these there were
eight which appeared to have started
from stoves, and six in which the
origin ot the lire was obscure. While
no lives were lost from either of
these lires, there was considerable
mail matter destroyed, and it is quite
obvious that the peril of everybody
on the train was considerably in
creased by the fact of these cars Ik
ing equipped with oil lamps.

Hon. Ben T. Cable, the popular
Rock Island ex-congressman, has
surprised the statesmen and politi
cians at th national capital by the
position he has assumed on the in-1
come tax question. . Since this sub.
ject has been agitated w ith a view to
swell the revenues, the felTows with
abnormal incomes have been seeking
to discredit the plan in various. way.
In fact there has been a regular ava-j
lanche of opposition hurled against
the proposed measure by the million
aires of the country.
Hence, the earnestness with which
Mr. (Table champions an income tax
comes as a refreshing novelty. Him
self immensely wealthy, he comes
out openly and unequivocally in fa
vor of taxing large incomes.' He be
lieves the burden of taxation should
fall as lightly as possible on the la
boring classes, and that the rich
should bear the heaviest burden
only in proportion to their ability
to do so, however. But the follow
ing from the Chicago Record defines
his position on the subject:
Wm-klac fr the Imww Tat.
W ami i Mi ton, D. C. Xov. 16. The
Hon. Ben T. Cable has a fat income
and yet he is using his best efforts to
induce the ways and means commit
tee to adopt an income tax as a fea
ture of the new tariff bill. Mr. Ca
ble saw Chairman Wilson by appoint
ment at 10 o'clock this morning, and
presented his argument in favor of
taxing large incomes. It was con
siderable of a surprise to Mr. Wilson,
for he has been accustomed to hear
ing protests from men of means
against the advisability of such a
tax. Mr. Wilson said after the inter
view that he would as soon have ex
pected to hear an anti-protection ar
gument from a protected manufac
turer. Mr. Cable did not treat the subject
from a personal standpoint. He ar
gued that the distressed condition of
the country made it desirable to limit
the burdens of the working classes
to the lowest possible tijrure. The
tact that wealthy men were receiving
large incomes in spite of the business
depression showed that thev were
well able to stand the additional bur
den imposed by the present deficit in
Think It Would Help Ik-norrar;.
W bile Mr. Cable treated the sub
ject from an economic and not from
a political point of view, it is under
stood that he believes that the polict
of an income tax would have a rejuve
nating innuence on the democratic
party, ana wouia oring to its sup
port the solid ranks of labor, in
this respect Mr. Cable ia 6aid to be.
Iieve that the policy of an income tax
would more than offset the appeals
maue to inose working classes cm
ployed in protected industries. If an
income tax is determined upon by
the committee it will do awav with
the necessity of making a large in
crease in the tax on sugar, whisky,
beer and tobacco, and this avoidance
of added taxation to a number of the
largest industries in the country will
be extremely desirable according to
the views Vf Mr. Cable. The latter
will talk with a number of the demo
cratic members of the committee,
and his influence at this partic
ular time, when the decisive moment
of the income tax is at hand, is like
ly to be considerable, for it is recog
nized that he cannot be speaking
from a personal and selfish stand
point. THE RIFLE BALL.
