tax) derived from all other sources as
shown by the entries on Its books from
January 1 to December 81 of the year
for which return Is made.
' Relating to statutory deductions the
regulation Is to the effect that the
deductions authorized shall include all
expense items under the various heads
acknowledged as liabilities by the cor
po ration making the return and en
tered as such on its books from Jan
uary 1 to December SI of the year for

therefore, that the return is to be
made up from the ledger and not the
cash book, and that entry on the led
ger from January 1 to December 81 of
the J ear for which i return is made is
the evidence which will determine
whether or not .an Item Is to be taken
account or in making the return.
It is believed by Secretary MacVeagh
that this - interpretation furnishes a
practical working method by which
the amount of Income subject to the
tax can be fairly and Justly determined
In every case.
Of course In administering a law
applying to so many taxpayers (lists
prepared dv collectors show something
over 400.000 corporations which will
have to make returns) some of the re
turns will be inaccurate. The causes
of Inaccuracy will be two: First, hon
est .error; second, willful intent to de
fraud the government of revenue. If
an honest error is made In calculating
the return for one year it will be cor
rected If possible, and even if not cor
rected "in one year it would more than
probably correct Itself later. Where
fraudulent purpose Is discovered vig
orous prosecution will follow. This
bureau feels that In dealing with the
Incorporated business of the countrj
It Is dealing. In the main with honest
men. However, the regulations ar
drawn sufficiently rigid to restrain
anyone who does not measure up t
this standard.
The regulations do not call for spe
cifllc methods of keeping accounts or
any particular method of bookkeeping,
the requirement is simply that the
transaction be so recorded that accur
ate returns can be made therefrom and
verified" when necessary.
In many corporations, mercantile
and manufacturing particularly. -an in
ventory, or its equivalent. Is essential
at the close of each calendar year. The
law specifically states that the tax
shall be collected for the calendar year
and no return for any other period can
be accepted. Provision Is however
made for preparing returns for the
present year, when no Inventory or
equivalent was taken at close of last
calendar year. Provision is made for
a method of fairly determining amount
of loss and depreciation claimed: also
for a fair adjustment of profit or loss
In case of sale of capital assets ac
quired prior to January 1. 190: also for

Great numbers of communications
have been received relative to the pub
licity clause. While there Is appar
ently some Inconsistency between the
two paragraphs of the law relating to
making public the information re
ceived, the language of the law relat
ing to filing returns for record, and
public Inspection is so clear that the
Bureau of Internal Revenue has no
discretion whatever in the matter.
The forms and regulations will go to
the collector of each district, who will
send copies of the blanks and a copy
of the regulations to every corporation
whose name and address the collector
has been able to secure. Failure to
receive the blanks or any notice rela
tive thereto will not excuse a corpora
tion from making the return required
by law. nor will it relieve it from pen
alties for failure so to do. If copies
of blanks and regulations are not re
ceived on or about January 1. applica
tion should be made to the collector

Taking advantage of the presence of
the largest assembly of representative
business and professional men New
Haven has ever seen gathered together
at a. banquet, at the annual dinner of
the Chamber of Commerce In the Tale
Unlverelty dining hall last night. Pres
ident William Howard Taft set forth
several Important announcements of
his position on matters of national Im
port that made his address of vital in--tereet,
- M , .
He came out fairly and squarely In
favor of the idea, of civil pensions to
take care of the superannuated mem
bers of government departments, bas
ins; his support of this on purely busi
ness grounds as absolutely requisite to
the necessary plan that he set forth
for obtaining economy in business ad
ministration through the avoidance of
duplication In work done for the gov
ernment and the obtaining of the high
est possible unit of efficiency from
each employe. ,
The President also favored the in
troduction of a system of gradation
in the charges for second class mall
matter so as to avoid the deficit which
that class of the government's mall de
partment is showing, and he also In
sisted strongly on the cutting down of
expenditure wherever possible, but
never at the expense of crippling or
cramping' the necessary growth of the
functions of government in order to
reduce those benefits which it is the
belief today a government should con
fer upon its people. . '
Besides President Taft. the other
speaker was President Arthur T. H ad
ley of Tale in place of Gov. Hughes of
New York, who was unable to leave
the bedside of his father at Albany.
In his address President Hadley said
there were two sets of problems with
which the government had to deal:
Those which should be decided by spe
cialists and those which should be de
cided by the people. - Of the latter he
Instanced slavery, the relations be
tween State and Nation and the an
nexation of the Philippines. But, he
said currency taxation of the rail
roads, and the tariff require expert
advice If the government is to be
more than a piece of wastful bung
ling. -
In the proper separation and co-ordination
of these two depends the suc
cess of the government and the future
of the (Democracy. If the people leave
everything to the experts. Democracy
dies of dry rot. If they try to do
everything themselves it results in
deeds of violence like those of the
French Revolution.

New Haven, Dec 15. A movement
is on foot among local Knights of
Columbus to consolidate all the New
Haven councils into one or two great
councils, the object being greater
unity of purpose, economy and the
general strengthening of the organ
ization locally. One definite object of
the proposed consolidation is the ac
quisition, or erection of a common
K. of C. club house, which is a long
cherlsued object of all local Knights.
While there is a fund being accumu
lated towards that purpose, this fund
Is not progressing at a very rapid
rate, amounting now to about $2,000.
As the proposed consolidation would
mean great economy to all councils
and it is estimated that from reduc
tion of expenses alone from $700 to
$1,000 could be saved per annum.this
money could be applied to the club
house fund which would hurry the
realisation immensely.

Lieutenant Osborne, of the Royal

A prominent- Main street merchant
who is a member of the Taxpayers.
League, was surprised one evening last ,
week to learn that Henry Lee had
signed the car barn surrender several
months ago. He said that if he had -known
it he would't have voted for
him. "But haven't you read the local
newspapers?" he was asked. . ; .
"I don't really have the time," re
plied the merchant. "I give all my
newspaper reading time to my New
York papers. You know I am greatly
Interested in Governor Hughes. I fol

One member of - the - Taxpayers -League
in East Bridgeport won't even

not do it. and the result is that the
people are wading through mud when,
they pass his property. Other taxpay
ers who have walks say they would
not belong to an organization with
such a type of citizen.
