July Clearance Sale OF No Large Increase 'in Corporation Taxes Expected President . Hopes to Side Track Tariff In Senate to Give Tax Bill Speedy Consideration.' By DAVID LAWRENCE. (Special Dispatch to The Iicformcr.) Copyright 11)21. WASHINGTON, July 13. President Harding has made it clear to the Republi can leaders in congress that he wants a tax program adopted which will lift re straint from business initiative. He is not committed to a sales tax, but is in clined to believe that a tax on production at the source cau be imiosed without add ing to the burdeu of business. . While the tax program is . in embryo condition, certain fundamentals are prac tically agreed upon. For instant- busi ness men everywhere have been imagin ing that with the repeal of the excess profit tax the government would be obliged' to increase materially the corporation taxes. The aim of the Harding adminis tration, however, is to avoid any increase of corioration taxes, if possible, and only to impose a slight addition in corporation taxes, if necessary. There is, indeed, no thought of making the corporation taxes t a substitute for the excess protit tax. Revival of Business First. . This decision miplif. -tit be good news to the business men of the country who I have been worried over the prospects of a treatlv increased coriHration tax." I President Harding, however, feels that' 'the revival of business in America is at tthij titiw n Tim rn tnitn lit eimsiilern f ion. tttid that nothing should be placed in the way of business incentive. The repeal of th excess protit tax is a foregone conclusion,! and it is certain that the next revenue J bill will not attempt to make the business and industries of the country carry the hulk of the load. Instead, the tax bur iten, will be more evenly distributed by the 'use of every sort of stamp tax. The three-cent letter postage may come back, and it seems assured that revenue stamps will be necessary on practically every kind of business transaction, from bank checks and drafts to real estate papers and other documents of purchase and sale. While these small taxes may prove annoying and inconvenient, the feeling is that such an- 'noyance is hardly to be compared with the burden hit hertoj carried by. business as a whole. Taxes at best are disagree able, but the government's job this time is i to distribute them in such fashion as to stimulate a business revival. ' ' ! Favor Tax on Production. . The tax on production is favored as a substitute for the sales tax because it (Will not be so difficult to collect and will jiot be paid several times as goods pass from producer to consumer. The exact form of this production tax has not yet been determined, but the idea appears to be to impose the tax on the output of commodities very much as the present tax on automobiles is covered. In such cases, of course, the manufacturer will pass on the payment of the tax to the consumer, as happens with automobiles, but in the sales tax proposal the chances were that more than one tax would be imjMised on the same article as it passed to various ' stages. Will Push Tax IVogram. The progress of the tax. program is ex pected to be more rapid after the house (finishes with the iermanent tariff bill. Indeed, it is the administration's 'plan to have the senate sidetrack the .tariff bill when it gets to the senate, by j having lengthy committee hearings. The revenue agreed upon by Republican lead ers will also be introduced in the senate land referred to committee, while it is be ing discussed in the house. It will mean that the tax bill will come out of the sen ate finance committee ahead of the tariff, and probably will be passed In-fore the tariff bill is debated. The hope now is that both the tax and the tariff bills will be out of the way by October 1. SPECIAL DELIVERY v TO COST 25 CENTS ria nned to Send .Messenger With Each Letter Will Telephone Farmers of letter at Office. t WASHINGTON. July. 15. The cost of sending a special delivery letter is to be raised from a dime to 12") cents. Post master General Hays in making the change is going on the theory that when a person sends a siecial delivery mes sage he wants the mosage. specially deliv ered, which is a service that cannot be rendered for a dime. As things are now. a messenger gets pfssibly special delivery letters and starts out with the whole batch. delivering them ifl. the, .bfSj oryVr lie .can arrange. The result is I hat in most cases the Ut ters come to their recipients one or sev eral hours after, they reach the, post office. With: the government; getting a. uu9t--ter of a dollar, it will be possible to ;cnd a messenger with each letter. -. The rural cnimunities are to' have a wcvice, also. It is. of course, imiwissible, from a business; standpoint, to send "a .let' ter by pecial messenger, to a fanner who lives miles away from the jostoftice. Such letters usually go by the regular rural nxite delivery and the government is in the jKisition of receiving money tinder false pretenses. They can't special deliver in these cases even for a quarter, but what they purpose doing in, whenever it is possible, telephoning the remote locations that a siK-ein! delivery letter is at the imMofiife. whereupon, if he considers it of sufficient importance, the farmer cau come in for it, or Authorize the postmaster to engage a messenger to take it out. or to tell him that a neighbor is coming that way and authorize the postmaster to trust the missive to him. Anybody, the postmaster general thinks, would rather pay a quarter for an actual special delivery service than a dime for a theoretical one. FAIL TO FIND CAUSE !
