Europe investigating the methods of! taxation and municipal government in different countries of that continent. In a recent interview in Berlin he said: "The taxing methods of Europe ap proach much nearer to fairness. Justice and equity than do American methods. .Broadly expressed, it is the . European theory that the support of| government, both national and local, j should be derived from rents, interest, j dividends and profits. No tax is con templated on means of production, but only on results of production, provided i It is profitable. This may have its drawbacks, but to my mind it is a thoroughly true and wise principle.’’ A Dog Which Attempted Murder.
