TARIFF IKCnEASE -
on sugar isfflin.
:UP AS SUGGESTIOn
By C.9. ALBEHT-' ! U ; '
. (S pM Stftr-Bnti' Oomooa4Me)
' WASHINGTON.- D. C.; Aprir 3. .
The ' outlook for ' lacreffSed Uriff pro
tection on" refined sugar. Is becoming
brighter as each day passes. Many
Democratic members of Congress- now
bpenly a,dmit that it will be necessary
to restore the Payna-Aldrich rate( or
go beyond that point . -. -; ? '
The arising of a critical situation be
tween the United States and Germany
has caused an unexpected and sudden
change in the attitude toward sugar.
For several days it has been self-evident
that material additions to gov
ernmental revenues must be made.
The old standbys whiskey, beer and
tobacco ware immediately suggested
as being slated to bear their share of
the burden. Sugar was added to .the
list, with aVuggestion that coffee and
tea might, be required to pay part of
the anticipated" war eipenses. v
,The first suggestion that sugar be,
given more - protection, instead of a
consumption tax bing letied, came
from- Representative Thomas ,M. Bell
of Georgia, the Democratic whip.: in
the house: The views expressed by
him were shared by many of Ws as
eoclates. ' -: :-' :' 'f
; I would be in favor of a tariff on
rogar,'' he said, 'because , it bears
equally cn all and wages a hardship
on none. I would-be willing for the
old tariff to be pnt back on, and I
would Increase it on lumber, too. It
might be a good policy to make an in
crease on diamonds, and then put It
up to the government to preventlhem
being smuggled in. X r s v "
"This could be done by the J)emo-;
crats consistently. I believe In a rev
enue tariff only rather than in raising
revenue by direct taxation, such as Is
raised by the excess profits law. The
increased tariff, rates should be put on
only as an emergency measure. ; After
ithe emergency is over we should get
tid of It at an early date." . A V v ;
Boosting the income tax, the excess
profits tax and other forms of reve
nue production now In vogue will'be
Invoked to fill the treasury. , It is fig
tred out that a cool vcinioa can be
raised" by elaborating and expanding
taxes already effective. It is thought
the Income tax might' be pushed up
from 2 to 5 per cent without bother
ing the payer too much The exempt
tlon would be slipped down to $1500
for single men. This would prove ef
fective but unpopular. , " '.
