There is n constantly grow in"; feeling among mir fellow citizens that tho govoromohl ought to run most of our staple Industries- if necessary, at ii liisf?, nml make up llic deficit out or taxation. Ami when in? vited to ruvcnl who is In he taxed to pay tho delict, they always Bay tin- sunn' thing: "Tho rich."-' .lust exactly wliut constitutes fhu rich is a thing vaguely Understood. They am goner ally Bupposoil to lie people, with loiiii of curreuey hidden some? where. It in surprising how few people there uro whose Illental processes shrpaBB those of a six-year-old. There are far more people in this grade than you may think. A mail if rich if he iuis ereil iln hy virtue ol w hifli he drnwH huge revenues from certain in? dustries. Very often he does HOI own the industries, hut in one of the hoinlholders. As il rule, he has very little currency. There is no sense in having mneh. When tho government ha? cuniiticntcd nil ibo large indus? tries, the rich men's sources of revenue will ho gone. Then |thoy will l)o poor. Wo nhall Blurt this scheme without any rich people?ami therefore there will he no one to pay the tll.\en. .Sii nil industry will run at a loss, like the railroads, without anyone tnnkiug up the deficit. They actually worked this scheme nut in Hungary, and apportioned the incomes which the individual members ol the population were tu draw Iii d mg out afterwards thai llioug Kregale of the incoiiios was fptir times ihe Intal producing powni uf the country. Tho Cliihtimiui who hurned down J his house to toast a pig was almost 'intelligent compared With Kiillll' id' us. "Hut," you may say, "why should the government always run industry at a h>s<-*" Ah, why indeed: H u I it due-. Governments are composed <if platform rhetoricians, mono-1 logiatH, lawyers and pamphlet- j oers not of chemists, or engill- ' eern, or manufactures. Well, let us leave enough rich people in existence to pity the taxes, I low rich shall wo let Iheni her Oil, just rich enough to dig up the money fur taxation. Hut no oho would consent to he rioli on those terms; Ihey would have tho Inhor of lllliugup lax-forms, and net nothing for it. NTo one who has done that job will want to do it ?ralis.
