O'CONNOR Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's What the Income Tax Law Is Expected to Do WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.?It Is not proposed to attempt income tax legis lation at this session of Congress. It will be brought forward in connection with downward revision of the Payne - Aldrich Tariff act. Representative Hull of Tennessee, who wrote the Excise Tax bill passed by the House at the last session, has been commissioned by the Ways and Means Committee to write the new measure putting the income tax into effect. Its exact terms have not been de cided on, but it is believed it will ex empt all incomes below $4,000 or $5. 000, and will provide a tax of one per cent on the majority of personal income that do not run to an excessive figure. It will be designed to supplant the . present corporation tax and will ap ply to the incomes of individuals, firms and corporations. In a state ment last night Representative Hull declared he favored making the new tax an integral part of the financial system of the United States to re main in full force without regard to the character of tariff bills that Con gress may enact from time to time. One feature, which it is believed will be included in the law, will be a pro vision for "collecting at the source" of the income. This feature, now in op eration in England, would require firms to certify to amounts they pay to individuals in salaries or fees, and pay the tax direct to the Government It is believed this would remove much complaint that might be made if the ; Government had to Investigate every individual citizen's income and would prevent invasion of the law. "The coming of the income tax. tc gether with honest tariff revision, wll mark the beginning of a new era ir the fiscal affairs of this country," Mr Hull said. "The time has come wher the principle of an income tax should and in my judgment will, be made t permanent part of our fiscal system This wholesome method of taxatior has already been adopted by moBt other countries, and is today univer sally recognized as an essentiul part of ?every modernized fiscal organization." "At present the law should be so drafted as to yield at least $100,000, 000 annually. This would embrace the $28,500,000 now being derived from the corporation tax, and would supply such revenue losses as may re sult from the coming revision of the tariff. This law will give Congress a bettor opportunity to revise the tar iff to a revenue basis and to place lower rates on none at all upon arti- ? cles of common necessity. It would - greatly equalize existing tax burdens, < requiring every citizen to contribute < to contribute tc the Government In < proportion to his ability to pay. J "This is the fairest of all taxes and < < the easiest and cheapest of collec- < tion. No citizen will complain of pay- ' ing this tax?because it will consti- J tute his fair and Just share of the tax < burden?except the tax dodgers and , the possessers of large wealth who j have heretofore enjoyed all the protec tion and other blessings of the Gov ernment without bearing any of its burdens. Those who would shirk their taxes say it is inquisitorial, but no one can truthfully deny that a modern income tax is less inquisitorial than ' any our existing Government, State or ? local, tax laws. "No tax is desirable, but it is always ? best for the people to know something ! as to the amount of taxes they pay. , They then keep a close watch upon i the appropriation and the expenditures . of the public moneys. I "Moreover, this tax will, for the first I time, afford the United States Gov ernment a flexible and elastic reve > nue svtsem. I have known the Na 1 tional Treasury to fluctuate $120,000, i 000 within two years. With this tax . in operation Congress can, within i three days, and at all times, raise , or lower the rate so as to meet the i varied demands of the Treasury ? . whether confronted by a deficit or i a surplus." ? Wrangling in the Senate I Over Taft's Nominations With only a few days of this Con-1 ? gressional session remaining the ? United States Senate is still wrang ? ling and filibustering over President ? Taft's appointments. A dispatch dis ? cribes a recent session, as follows: ! "This program of locking horns is | scheduled to be repeated each day un ' til the Republicans find themselves > unable to force the fighting or the ^ Democrats are figuratively down and " out. No attention will be given appro > priatiou bills or other pending matters. y "Following as a preliminary, the Re ? publicans held a conference in the > morning. Senators Dixon, Poindexter, > Bristow and Clapp did not attend. ? Other Progressives were present. Sen ? ators Cullon, Penrose, Nelson and > Brandegee said there should be a t finish fight for the confirmation of * President Taft's appoinments. Sena tor LaFoliette and Gronna were espec ially in favor of carrying the war in to Egypt. "It was determined by resolution to have an executive session daily, imme diately following the routine business, and peg away at it until the Republi cans found it impossible to maintain a quorum. All promised to be on hand and help make a quorum when ever one was demanded.. "The Republicans snapped off an ex ecutive session and the fracas began. The Democrats announced that they would filibuster until the Republicans agreed^ to some line of division be yond which confirmations would not go. "Senator Smith of Georgia told the Republicans he had a trunk filled with papers relating to the various pending nominations. He thought about one day would be consumed in explaining the demerits of each appointee. In this way something like 1,600 days would be required. "For six hours the Democrats used obstructive methods. They made mo tions to adjourn, appealed from deci sions of the chair, noted the absence of a quorum and otherwise harried their opponents. There were six yes and nay votes and three calls of the Senate. Finally at 6:30 p. m. the Re publicans found themselves without a quorum and the Senate adjourned for the day. The hope had been expressed that enough Republicans would remain on hand to keep the fight going un till 11 o'clock in the evening. "In discussing the tight Senator iMar tin said: "Disagreeable as the task is, the Democrats will continue theii policy of opposition to confirmation of the Taft nominations except as to appoint ments in the army and navy and sim ilar branches of the Government and as to the diplomatic corps. "We are not woried over the effect daily executive session will have on the appropriations bill and other leg islation. The appropriation bills can easily be passed in the extra session as the bills do not become effective un til July 1, and the other matters can be looked after at the same time." "Intimations were given last night by Republican Senators that the fight undoubtedly will extend into Presi dent-elect Wilson's administration and be reflected in the Senate's action on many of his appointments. Six Powers Agree to Loan China Many Millions PEKING, Feb. 20.?The loan agree-1 inent between the Chinese Government! and the six-power group of bankers, has been clopleted. The agreement provides for a loan entitled "The Chinese Government I Five and Half Per Cent Cent Reorgan ization Gold Loan" to the amount of | $125,000,000. It stipulate the purposes| for which the loan shall be employed. | which include the disbandment of the troops and the reorganisation of the salt tax. The loan is secured on the tax, but j it is also provided that any future sur plus in the maritime custom shall be utilized for the service of this loan, thus making a portion of the salt rev enue available for other Government purposes. The six-power group undertake to advance $10,000,000 immediately the agreement is signed, another $10,000, 000 later in this month, and $15,000, 000 in March, should the issue of the loan for any unforeseen cause be de layed. The loan is for fifty years, but the Chinese Government has the option of converting or redeeming it at par after six months' notice. The Government undertakes not to fssue a further Government loan with in six months and to issue no loan se cured on the salt tax without giving the six-power group an option. The appointments of J. P. Oissen, of Denmark as Inspector of the tax, and the German, Herr Romp, as super visor of the audit department, have been approved.
