--The Dutch people are. to bo called!
j upon tp pay ucarty five dollar? por
head 'nore tax?>s every year into tho
I national exchequer as a direct result
or tho war. llr.lierto fie annual tax
lut lon of the country has usually
amounted lo something over $3?\000,
! ?00 lu ronn i figures, or about $10.20
per capita; bur the new bill just laid
before parliament brings the anual !
j total up to approximately $105,000,000
or $21 por capita.
I Besides Increasing the ratio of al
ready existing taxes, tho government
has declined to impose ones which di
rectly affect capitalists, hplders of
stocks and bonds, pensioners, persons
not belonging to the anny or navy,
institutions enjoying incomes from
bet|uesta. drawers of registered docu
ments, railroad and street car trav
elers, smokers, carl players, and pos
sessors of moro than one front name.
Marlo Willem Frederick Treub.
minister of finance, who himself will
como into the latter category, line
the la3k before him of convincing the
Dutch public of the necessity of these
inronds upon Its income. . lt is gen
erally assumed, 'lowevor, in parlia
ment circles, that Dutchmen as a
rule will coincide with him in the
view that It la better to pay tao high
er taxes rendered necessary by tho
national defense than to leave the
Netherlands opon to violation by. one
or other of tho fighting nations which
might soe fit to enter its territory
In order tc farther Its military ends.

propriations for tho Dutch army and

lands, however, make only a very
small spot on thc map and (ho addi
tion for tills purpose of $3,200,000 to
tho already existing expense* of Its
five million inhabitants is regarded
as a considerable further burden.
One of tho principal points of ob
jection by t?:o Dutch public against
tho newly-proposed taxes -is that con
cerning the impost on rn?'-oad tick
ets. In this proposition the Dutch
government has, knowingly or not,
followed the cxamplo of Germany,
where railroad travelers are taxed
proportionately to tho class irt which
they travel. TW proposed tax hore
amounts to fifteen per cent on" the
prico of first-class tickets, eight on
second and three on third. Laborers'
commutation tickets and school child
ren's tickets are to escape taxation
Another point has aroused'discus
sion everywhere-namely, tho tax
on front names-for tho Dutch are
prone to burden tfieir children with
from four to six namos. A glance at
any Duich directory brings to light
many instances bf family names being
preceded sometimos by nearly half tho
alphabet. However, the tax is evi
dently not to bo very heavy, as tho
total amount it ls expected to bring in
is only about $2CO,000.
Distilled liquors., tobacco of all
kinds, beer, snit, sugar and playing
canis, are all to provide their share
