THE WASHINGTON "TBIES, TUESDAY-JANUARY 25, J 910. rriutjtifttintnt of tho schedule", na7 lnriluco the nrcdetl rewnue 'without Intiionliijr erf one clnsa n burden that Is OIHTOUB. May Be Readjustment. It l argued by members of the Ways nfil Mt'nnn Committee', for Instnncc, that there nrojierly mny bo a rondjust- ment of tho classes of Incomes that Is, tl i Iiit mi Iho t-olntlvn Incnmci may be 'tloseil In" so that the man earning ro.WVto fc!00f0 shall pay a certain tax luntcntl of Inclnilliiff In one class all per Kons who act between T20.000 and SJO.lW. This rrnri-miacmrnt. would collier In rcveiiiip nil down the 1 no. , Whllo certain Ucmocrnts doubt the ex- jifdlrncy of surh leKlslntlon-Iooklnu at the matter firm n Political land no ; n fconnmic niniiiipiiini u in iiu,m.w- -..-. the Income tax exemptions will also t lowered. Tho exemptions at present nro Jl.OOn for the married man or wo innii, and tt.OOO lor tho unmarried taxce. Tho new exemptions ore likely to be J2.000 and 11.00 respect' vcly and a few inlllloniTmay bo realised, by this change. ' "It Is not proper that I should talk about probablo rates at this time," said Mr. Hull today. "But It can to said with rcasonablo certainty that the In comn may be amended to produce from W0.000.000 -to $100,290,000 additional with out Imposing hardships upon any class. Suggests General Revision. "My suggestion Is that this shall be accomplished by a general revision of the Income tax law and possibly a re adjustment of the classes as to the n mount of Income that shall be paid by men who receive Incomes between cer tain figures. The decision of the Su preme Court upholds the broad prin ciple of the Income tax, and there is nothing to prevent making it a pro ducer of more revenue. While Increases In tho surtaxes are planned. It Is er roneous to believe that theso Increases will be so burdensome thdt they will cause just crltlcUm. It Is not proposed that the Increases against the so-called wealthier classes shall bo In the nature of confiscatory legislation, although It Is likely they will be appreciable, and iiilte productive." The ncome tax now turns Into the TreasiV from JS3.000.000 to $100,000,000. If It can be stretched and the partv lend ers Intend to stretch It to brlntj In J200. P01.000 tho revenue problem of the Demo crats will practlvally be solved, and there will be no resultant loud wall from the ordinary taxpayer and "com imon people."
