IOr]ES fOR BIG SAING 1edtuetion of $62,000,000 in Revenue 'thus Made Would Be More Than Moade Up by Enforeement of Spe. oial Exetiu Bill to ie Propoued, Hov. ing Effeot of Income Tax. Washlngton, March 1.-A bill to put sugar on the tree list, eliminating $52, 000,000 in all customs revenue, and an other to extend the present corporation tax to include idlvviduals and co-part lershlfp having anf Income of $6,000 a year or over, were ratified tonlght by the dbmocratlo caucus of the house. The excise tax, so called by the ways and means committee, is In effect an inoome tax. The bill is so drawn that It sl expected to comply with the su preme court's decision against the con stitutionality of an Income tax. Its effect would be to tax every person Af0o earns $5,000 or more a year at the rate of.one per cent. ! Ohariman Underwood estibates that the proposed excise tax will bring In a revenue of between $8,000,000 and $60,000,000 a year. Placing sugar on the free list, the democratic leaders estimate, will reduce the price of sugar to the consumer about one cent and a halt a pound. Ihe secret that mem bers of the ways and means committee had been so carefully guarding for several weeks was the provision to ex tend the corporation tax. In the ,caupus the bill was not op rk( t Wl, " Tihe floe sugar bill, howeve , was assailed by rnpresenta Utes from lrouIsIana, the cane sugar sate, a presentative trem uger bsee growing states No roll call on the ratification of the bills was de mahded. Majority Leader Underwood an nounced that the bills would be re ported to the house in a fewn days. The president of the United States, arould the proposed law be enacted, would pay one per cent of $70,000 or $700,-hl salary being $75,000. Chairman Underwood made a state ment to the caucus that he had been directed by the ways and means coin mittee to submit a bill to place sugar on the free list and another bill ex tending the present excise tax now levied on corporations to Individuals and co-partnerships having an annual Income of more than $5,000. "The bill removing the taxes levied at the customs houses on sugar im ported Into this country," said Mr. Underwood, "will have the effect of reducing tde price on sugar to the con sumer about one and a half cents a pound." Would Cause Saving. The statement further said that In the opinion of the ways and means committee, the large profits made by manufacturers end refiners of sugar had been due to the customs tariff and that placing sugar on the free list would reduce the profit, but would not destroy the industry In the United States and would result In a saving to the American people of $107,000,000 a year. "The purpose of the excile bill pre sented to the caucus," Mr. irndeiwood said, "is to extend the tax to t! hib.s Iress of Individuals and co-partner Irips. The special tax will accomplish the same result as would have been accomplished by an Income tax if It were iwithin the power of congress to enact art Income tax law so far-reach Ing, but at the same time the bill keeps well within the principles laid down by (Continued on Page Five). t· N~CHINA '' f.. rII?
