"Don't watt until the final doe date,

This word of advice is from William

Figuring the Tax. A
Before figuring the normal tax the
dividends are deducted as credits from
net liicome, together with the jiersonal
exemption. As In previous years, divi
dends of domestic corporations are ox
cir.pt from normal tax when received
by llit stockholder.
The normal tax rates for citizens
and residents are as follows: On the
first $4.000 of net Income In excess of
the credits the rate Is fl per cent ; on
.my further taxable Income the rate to
12 per cent
The surtax rates apply to net In
come of each Individual In excess of
$5,000. The personal exemption ahd
the dividends are not deductible before
computing surtax. In the case of re
turns by husband and wife, the net In
come of each Is considered separately
In computing any surtax that may be
due. Form 1040 should be used for
luak'ng returns of net, income exceed
ing $5,000, and the instructions on that
form will show how to figure the sur
Busls*ss House Returns.
Employers and others who paid
wnges, salaries, rents, interest or Hm
ilnr determinable gains In an amount
of $1.000 or over during 1918 to any
person must file an Information return
with the Government. Blanks may be
secured from the Collector.
Every partnership must file a return
showing Its Income and deductions and
the name and address of each partner,
with his shore of the profits or losses
during the past year. Personal service

The Statesman of February 2S con-1
tained the following in its report of
the legislative grist of the day be
fore, bringing the first news of the
proposition to create a> new Judge
for the Sixth Judicial district and
elevatc Senator Enoch W. Whitcomb
»o sit with Judge Cowen in the dis
trict, which at the same time is to
be enlarged. The Statesman says :
Aspirations in the direction of
a district Judgeship said to be
'entertained by E. W. Whitcomb
of Lemhi county, president pro
tern of the senate, were aired be- '
i fore the senior body Thursday {
afternoon, when a measure pro- (
vhiing for the appointment of a
second Judge in the 8ixth Judic
ial district, and proposing to *|f'
ter the alignment of counties lb
both the Sixth and Ninth dis- J
trlcts was thrown Into commit

Annexation of Madison, Jeffer
son and Clark counties to the
Sixth district, a feature of the t
bill under consideration, brought

violent opposition from several
senators from the southeastern
part of the state. A motion of
fered by proponents of the meas
ure, asking favorable recommen
dation, was tihrottled; 1? to 20- )»ut
a suggestion that the "do not
pass" tag be attached also met
disapproval. Predictions offered
as to probable final action on the
propc al differed widely.
Whitcomb Is Willing.
Senator Whitcomb did not at
tempt to dissemble when asked
about the "inference to be gather
ed from a clause of the measure
which provides that inemt->rs of
the legislature may be eligible to
judicial appointments. He said
frankly that a Lemhi county man
was sought for the position, and
that members of the Salmon bar
had insisted that all limitations
be removed.
Equal distribution of patron
age and the desire to make the
chambers of one judge more
readily accesible to the people of
I-emhl and Custer counties, were
the principal arguments urgted
by WbitcomT) in support of the
If the bHl is accepted in

Senator Whitcomb's Judgeship
The Statesman of Wednesday car
ries the following further reference
Senators Yt>aman, Gilchrist,
and Adams voiced vigorous ob
jections when a measure by E.
W. Whitcomb, which provides
for the appointent of a second
Judge in the Sixth Judicial dis
trict, and proposes to annex to
the Sixth district Madison, Jefer
son and Clark rauntles, all now
under tlfe Ninth district Jurisdic
tion, was made debatable, but
the proposal was approved by a
27-9 vote.
Present congestion of the
Ninth district calendar and the
desire to make a JudgV at cham
bers accessible to the residents
of Ltmhf and Cui&er counties,
were the principal arguments
enjoyed by Whitcomb, Lete of
Bingham and Baker of Custer, in
advocating ^"Ihe- president pro
tern's measure.
It Is believ«^ that the add!
dltlonal judgeship will fall Whlt
comb-ward, as the bill carries a
