The question of an inheritance 'ax is to be threshed out at this session of Congress in connection with the tariff and Im-ome tn measure. Possibly an inheritann tax provision may be hitched to the Fnderwood bill. Onl a feu flays ago it was made public that John Jacob Astor had be queathed property worth $10,000,000 to young Vincent Astor. This has stirred up attention in Congress, the feeling being pronounced that so ast a sum should not be permitted to go down from one generation to another withoJt di vision with the community. Senaor Norris of Nebraska. Progres sive Republican, will shortly present an Inheritance tax bill in the form of a proposed amendment to the tariff and income tax bill. He plans to exempt moderute inheritances, but to get after tne Dig omce, anu 10 srauuaie me in. j so that it will be as high as 23 per j cent on the swollen fortunes.
