"Thc Senator Dronounced tho obiec tion of Oovernor Hughes, of New Vork, to be absurd. 1 cannot iiirrce wlth this vlew.

"LanKuago could hardly be broader. an.l the fallnre to tax the Instrumen talltlns of States Qiust be ascrlbed to tlio forbearance rather than to tho lack of power of Congress. "It Is a wise maxlm of novernmcnt to grant no power which Is not prop eriv safeguarded from abuse. "I was dlsappolntcd lhat tho Sena? tor's argument was not fundamental. "The real objectlon to thc adODtlon of thls amendrnent, lt seems to me. are thosn; "Thn proposal of the amendrnent ls an admisslon that tho power to tax tlio Incime of Indlvlduals ln the m?th i.'i proposed does not now Irthere in the Federal government, The nrooosltlon is therefore to Imrease enormouslv the Federal lurlsdlctlon and power?to brlns the Indlvldual In direct contacl with the Kedoral KOvernment and thls contact ls ln rclatlon to thn most vital concern of tbe indlvldual.
