Hanks 1V1I1 Aid nrnra- The large majority of Washington purchasers of the 3Vj per cent loan till retain the interim certificates, preferring not to press the Treasury TWO ARE CHARGED LIQUOR CASES AFTERPOLICERAID Two cases of alleged violation of the Sheppard law were called In Po llce Courtltoday and continuances, asked until tomorrow. It was stated both defendants would plead not guilty and demand Jury trials. The Government has announced that a determined effort will be made to stamp out Illicit liquor selling In the District and the present cases may be used as an example. The arrests were made yesterday, the prisoners being Mrs. Jane Ross, seventy years old, of 1123 Fifth street northwest, and Thomas Baf tery, -forty-two, of-406 H street north west. Mrs. Ross was released to day on 12.000 bond and Raftery fur nished surety of 11,000. In the case of Mrs. Ross, marked money and a. "stool pigeon" were successfully employed, the police say. According to their account, a man was sent Into the establishment who found beer selling at SO cents a bottle, and whiskey at 14 a quart. Liquor to the amount of seventy four quarts of whiskey and eight cases of beer were taken. On September 30, records show, Mrs. Ross fas arrested for selling t liquor without a license and forfeited j 300 collateral. I On Rafterya premises, the police ! declare, they discovered the bulk of II BO worth of whiskeys, beers, bran dies, and gins In his private apartment on the second floor, while two cases of beer were discovered tinder the bar.

Those deslr- lnc- registered 4's will receive Uncle Sam's checks, with the Interest ad justed. All conversions after Decem ber 15 will require payments to the United States to adjust Interest. Do -Not Want Higher Rate. Two classes of people are not in terested in the higher Interest rate. One Is made up of Intensely patriotic people who do not want to ask Uncle Sam for more than 34 per cent Inter est. The banks report today that there are a good many people In Washington of this type. The other class are the Immensely wealthy who prefer the 3U per cent bonds because tie Income from them Is not subject to Income sur taxes. The 4 per cent bond Issued recently is subject to In come taxes for all amounts above J5.000. The great bulk of the sub scribers to both Liberty loan issues will not hav- to pay the Income tax. as their subscriptions were below S5.000. Investment houses throughout the country report that In the last few months many people of great wealth have persistently and steadily sought the first Liberty Issue and will not convert them inti 4 per cent bonOs at alL In this way they escape all sjraln g ven of desire to convert the , taxation bJr u,,.

Ac j cording to exper authorities today. however, no Washington bank holds holdings are above S2.500.000 the taxes commensurately increase, and the net return on the Investment would be decreased. On an Income of $110,000 a year from the 4's the net Income would be 3.49, ieaa than the net Income received from 354 per cent bonds. 4 Per Cent Pond Favorite. The situation may be entirely dis regarded by the average Investor, who will not be affected materially one way or anotlitr. The 4 per cent rate of Interest will long remain the most attractive. According to the latest Income tax returns the supertax will apply to only about 250,000 people In the United States, and this tax Is upon in comes derived from all Sorts of In vestment. Upon Income from Govern ment bonds alone the number would be Immensely reduced. Only that number are. reported as having In comes above $5,000 a year, at which point 'the supertax begins. Only about 1(5,000 people are reported as having Incomes above 550.000 and 3.K24 have Incomes above $100,000 a year. Treasury officials do not believe the next Issue of bonds, probably in Feb ruary, will bear a higher rate of In terest than 4 per cent. "The Secretarj of the Treasury has authority to Issue $14,000,000,000 of bonds ln this fiscal year, lie sold $2,000,000,000 the first time and will dispose of about $3,S00 000,000 to the country on the last Issue, leaving more than $8,000,000,000 yet to be Issued before the close of the fiscal year.
