CONGRESS TO RKDUCK TAXES ON LUXURIES Washington, May 20.—One of the first measures of revenue reform to be put forward by the republican grass will be a reduction of the lux ury tax provisions of the revenue law* enacted at the last session of the democratic congress. It is contended by legislators that many /of these provisions impose unnecessary burden upon the purch cser of the oi^linary necessities of life and unduly add to the cost of living. For Instance, It Ib pointed out that T is now difficult to buy a good and substantial pair of shoes, whether for men of women, for less than $10. Vet the law declares that any pair of : hoes which costs more than that is a luxury and is so taxed. The derby hat of good quality of the average man, which formerly cost $6, now costs ,*8. But the revenue law defines it a luxury If more than $6 is paid. The «me is true on all shirts costing more than $3. One of the most popu lar makes of shirts in the country today could be purchased before the war for $1.60, but now costs $3. Or dinary shirts have therefore under the Kitchins-Simmons latf become a luxury, for which the purchaser must - pay an additional tax. Not many women would consider a hat costing S16 a luxury, especially in these days of high prices, but the law declare« that any hat of this sort which costs more than that sum is a luxury and must be taxed. Hence the object of the republicans who are to take con trol of the Ways and Means Commit tee In the house and the Finance Com mittee in the Senate to remove what they term these absurdities of the law. coun con an The Maxi Who Knows Buys Clothes \ For Fit and Style, and Quality Guaranteed, See Our Line. i| MERCANTILE COMPANY •> # PIONEER IDAHO EDITOR ACCIDENTALLY KILLED Idaho Fall», Maj 17.—Justice Oi ehe Peace William E.
