Tobacco Jars and
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
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
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.
"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
"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
"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
"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.

Better than the Best
WITHOUT our knowledge, the Columbus Labo
ratories of Chicago tested Fisher's Blend
Flour for a Dakota Wheat Grower. The an
alysis ranked Fisher's Blend Flour higher in Gen
eral Average, Gluten Quality, Water Absorption and
Loaf Value than the best Dakota all-Hard Wheat Pat
ent Flour, which is the recognized standard for bread
stuff efficiency. Fisiier's Blend Flour is a scientific
combination of Eastern Hard Wheat and Western Soft
Wheat, preserving the best qualities of each. It costs
you from 20 to 2596 less than a straight Eastern Hard
Fisher's Blend Flour
