By OTTO H. KAHN. Nothing le plainer than that busi ness and business men had everything ( i to gain by preserving the conditions < which existed during the two and a i 1 half year® prior to April, 1917, under which many of them made very large 1 profits by furnishing supplies, provl | shms and financial sld to the silted , nations. Taxes wire tight, and tbla i country was rapidly becoming the 1 great economic reservoir of the world. 1 Nothing Is plainer than that any *nn business wan In this country trust Ifnve 1 foreseen (hat. If America entered the j j war, these profits would be Immensely j j reduced and some of them cm off en- ! , tlrely, because our government would | step In and take charge . (list It would j i rut prices right end left, is, In fact.

I A moment's reflection will sb w the tiller absurdity of tbst charge. Let us i v-ume. for argument's sake, that the j allies had been deflated, let US make I the wildly Improbable assumption (bat they had uefsnlted for the lime being ' lipoii""l ilc-c ‘foreign '(h-fIXT fkO gCfStCS* | pan of which, by the Jb I* aecnrW j •> the deposits of collateral m the - i .ijie of American railroad bonds and ! sleeks soil of bonds of neutral coon , trie* aggregating more thnn sufficient i to value to cover the*.- debts, t-ei ue •tunc that the entire amount of el j lied bonds placet! 11l America had been j held by rich men In New York and the ' cast instead Of being distributed, se It ; is. throughout the country Is It not perfectly manifest tbet s iogle year's American war taxation ami reduction of profits would ink* oat of I it.c pie lets of such assumed holders s 1 vnsll) greater sum limn any possible 1 loss they could have suffered by s d-- fault on their silled bonds, nut to men 1 b>n the heavy (avsllon which Is hound j to follow the war for years to come ami the shrinkage of fortunes through i (he decline of all American seruHilct 1 In consequence of our entrance tnio ibe t war?

In England the income nut la: per cent, on 11.1)00 7% " “ •• 2.000 (These are the rate* If the income la derived from salaries or wages; they are still higher If the Income is derived from rents or Investments.) The English scale of taxation on In comes of, say, *3,000, *5,000, *(0,000 and *IO,OOO respectively averages as follows os compared to the American rates for married men: Income tax In In rale on England. America 11.000 14 per cent. t-t of tp. o. 6.000 IS per cont. U 4 p. o. 10.000 fo per cent. tii p. c. 16.000 26 pei cent 6 p. c. (If we add the so called “occupa tional'' tax our total taxation on In come* of SIO,OOO Is 6% per cent, and on Incomes of *13,000 !t\ per cent.) In other words, our income taxation Is more democratic than that of any other country In that tha largest In comes are taxed much more heavily and the small and moderate Income* much more lightly than anywhere else and Incomes up to *2.000 for married men not taxed at all. (H.) If is true, on the other hand, that on very large income*—ns dlatln gulxhcd from the largest Incomes—our Incline mx Is somewhat lower than the English lax, hut the difference by which our tax Is tower than the English tux Is Incomparably more pronounced In the case of small uud moderate Incomes than of large Incomes. The "Excess Profits" Tex Hers and Abroad. Moreover, If we add to our Income lax our so culled "excess profit lax," which Is merely an additional Income lux on earnings derived from business, vie shall Hud ihat the total tax to which rich men are subject I* In the great majority of case* heavier here than In England or anywhere else. II ) It ia likewise inie that the Eng Indi war excess profit lax Is SO tier cent, (less various offset * and allowances) whilst our so called excess profit lax ranges from 20 pel cent, to (X) per ceil t. Hut It I* entirely misleading to base s conclusion ss l<i the relative heavi ness of th American and British tax merely on a rnmperisen of the rales because the English tsx is assessed no a wholly different basis from ihe Anicr lean tax.

The Eng lish tax applies only to excess war profits that la. only to the sum by whl' b profits In the war years exceed the profits tn lbs Hirer years preced ing the war. which In England wars years of great prosperity In other words, the English tax Is nominally higher Ihao ours, but It applies only to war profits. Th# normal profits of bust ne*—l. e. tbe profit* which business used to make In pence time —are ex- ! empted In England Thera, only the ; excese over peace profits la taxed Our tax, on the contrary, applies t-j all profits over and above a very moderate ■ rats on tbe money Invested in hual- I ness. We Tax Normal Profits, Thsy Tax Only War Profits. iu snort, our lawmakers have de creed that normal business profits are taxed hern much more heavily than In i England, while direct war profits are , taxed less heavily. Vou will agree with me tn question- 1 In* both the logic and the Justice of 1 that method. It would seem that ll 1 would be both fairer and wiser and more In accord with public sentiment If Ihe tax on business In general were I | decreased and, on the other band, an j i increased tax were Imposed on specific - war profits , (5) Our federal inheritance tax Is < far higher than It Is in England or any- , where else. The maximum rate here , on direct descendants Is 27(4 per cent. , ax against 20 per cent. In England. In addition lb that, we have state Inher- \ Itaftee taxes which do not exist in Eng land, (ii.) <M her total actual war exjien ! allures (exclusive of loans to her al lies and Interest on war loatja) Eng land has raised leas than IS per cent by taxation (France and llerninny far 1 less), white America it about to raise by taxation approximately 28 per cent 1 of her total war requirements (exclu- * slve of loans to the allied nations and I of the amount to be Invested In mcr- 1 cantlle ships, which, being a produc- 1 the Investment, an not properly be 1 classed among war expenditures). * We men of business are -ready and wlllti.j; to tie taxed In this emergency t to the .cry limit of our ability and to 1 make contributions to war relief work ( and other good causes without stint, r The fflet Is that, generally speaking t capital engaged In business Is now t being taxed I- America more heavily I than anywhere else In Ihe world.

All the exhibits which will feature the Cantonment will be vivid and Im pressive. TJiey will Include demon strations of practically every phase of war work there Is.
