LAURENS, S. C., JULY 26, 1922
The errors that Mr. Lowe, whose
coil munication is clsewherc in this
paper. falls iI is the same that nearly
all advocates of the luxury taxes fall
in, viz., that luxuries are of no beneilt
to anybody and that to reduce their
sales by taxes will not bring hardships
on some as good and law-abiding citi
zens as there are anywhere.
Take some of the items w-hich Mr.
Lowe enumerates, cigarettes for in
stance. The Advertiser holds no brief
for the cigarette, -but cigarettes are
made from tobacco and tobacco is a
farm plroduct. -It is hauled on the
railroads giving eeiloyment to work
ing men. It is nade into cigarettes 'by
more working men. It is freighted
away from the factory again by more
working men. It is sold .by working
men and finally handed over the coun
lei by more working men. -Mr. Lowe
!would not say that the tobacco indus
try in this state is not beneitting the
faimers. Nor 'wouldli he say that the
peach industry is not -benefitting the
farmers. nor the celery industiry, nor
the cantaloupe industiry, nor the as
naragus industiy,. nor- iany other
such inlustries Which . are elgaged pri
