WILSON ASKS CONGRESS
FOR WAR TAX MEASURE
In Personal Address, Urges Legisla
tion to Raise $100,000,000
Year Additional Revenue.
PROMPT ACTION NECESSARY
Committee Immediately Begins Con
sideration of Plans to Raise
Amount Needed?Yarlous Mem
bers Make Suggestions.
WASHINGTON', September 4.?"W?
shall pay the bill, though we did not de
liberatelj incur It," said President Wil- !
yon to-day, presenting before a Joint
session of Congress his appeal for an
emergency internal revenue measure to
raise J l no.000,000, the government's
probable less in customs receipts be
cause of the Kuropean war. Prompt
action was necessary, the President
said, "to keep the Treasury strong."
Ilis only suggestion as to the method
for levying the lax was that sources
be chosen that would "begin to yield at
once, and yield with a certain ami con
stant How."
Tin- appeal met with quick action.!
As soon a^ the President had left the
I louse chamber, amidst an outburst of'
apoluusc. Speaker 'Mark referred the
message to the Ways and Means Com-i
mil lee. Democratic members of the i
committee met to-night at the call of ?
the chairman, Keprcsentative Under-I
wood, and began consideration of plans i
to raise the additional revenue. Va- <
rious menibets suggested sources which
they helUwd would he properly sub
jected to additional taxation. On tlir
list suggested were.
"CJasolene. a tax of I or ; cents a
gallon: railroad and amusement tick
ets. a tax of ."> I<? 10 i?m- cent; liter, an
increase of .">0 cents a barrel: domestic
wines whiskey, an increase of 15 cents
a gallon: proprietarj aitlcles, tobacco
and tobacco products, chewing gum.
pott drink;- playing cards."

The pi opoatil ti> ta\ ra il road tickets
was not received with enthusiasm b\
members of the committee, although it
was estimated that a ?> per cent tax
would raise $40,000,000.
Chairman L'ndenvood said the ar
ticles suggested would be gone over,
and a list of taxable articles agreed on
by elimination. This list would be
qtihmitled to the Treasury I>epartuient
pro ha bl> en rl> next week. \\ hen the
bill is completed in committee, it prob
ably will he brought Into the House
under a special rule and hurried
through.
President Wilson was gi\eu an en
thusiastic greeting when he entered
the House chamber#, escorted by Sena
tors Kern. Clark and Oallluger and
lU'prescntatives L'nderwood, Fitzgerald
and Maun.
The President said lie bad come to

-tli'- eontlict in lOuropc. lie said, had
created conditions which, unless -l^nlt
with promptly, might involve conse
quences of the "most embarrassing and
ih plorablr sort."
To borrow money, th?- President
urged, was unwise: bond issue would
nialie an "?.iiitiuiel; and unjust iiialde"
demand upon money markets, leaving
taxation as the onlv method left to
raise n \enue. In 1111 ^ situation, he ap
