Mr. Hull answered: If Mi. Rockefeller has one million dollars annual"liicome from stock divi dends and Mr. Carnegie hss ons mlllljn In CO las from Interest on bonds, air. Hoekefeller will pay Just WO more in come tax than Mr. Carnegie. The reason lor this slight difference Is that Mr. Carnegie paying personally Is en titled to exemption on the first four thousand dollars of Income, while a cor. poratlun paying the normal tax on dividends.

HOW TAX WILL BE COLLECTED FROM CORPORATIONS. "The man with a million annual la come from atock may not pay directly out of hla pocket the same amount as a man with a million lncoms from bonds, but Indirectly at least he will contribute the same. The reason Is this. Corporations pay the normal tax of 1 per cent, on net Income. Dividends arc paid out of net income and theoretically the corporation is merely withholding ing the 1 per cent, at the source and paying It for the stockholder. Whether or not it charges the amount directly sgamet the stock holder's personal ac count la a question (or the company and Itl shareholders. It may pay the un out f Its own treasury or It may deduct the sum from the dividend cheflkf. The result is theoretically tha tame, as stockholders are the partners who OWN the company.
