FIGHTING FLAT RATE
Merchants and Manufacturers at
Montpelier, Dec. 18. In the Sen
ate chamber, packed to the doors, a
number of merchants and manufac
turers explained to the Senate com
mittee on finance this afternoon why
the flat rate bill which recently
passed the House, if enacted into law
would work an unfair hardship to
them and tend to drive business and
initiative out of Vermont. The
first speaker was the Hon. Alexander
Dunnett, who Bald that he was there
to represent the people of his heme
town, St. Johnsbury. Mr. Dunnett
objected to the lack of equity which
the bill Involves when It lowers the
rate on bank stock and a number of
kinds of personal property and de
prives the young merchant, who has
a large stock of goods In his store,
of the right to get some recognition
of the fact that they are not paid for
or are bought with borrowed money,
allowing him to set off against them
the amount which he owes. He said
that this was not a real flat rate
measure, but a patched up experi
ment, more unjust than any law
which he knew except one very anc
ient law which read: ' "To him that
hath shall be given and from him
that hath not shall be taken away
even that little which he hath."
F. M." Cory, speaking for the mer
chants and manufacturers of Mont
pelier, made an earnest speech
against the bill.
The Hon. .Max L. Powt-l! spoke vlg
orouslv for Burlington business men.
He si: tl that all over the State it
would paralyze initiative nit I pena
lize all the young men who an' try
ing to awaken and build h;i Ver- 1
The Hon. H. S. Peck also i-pnk. tor
the Burlington business iiu n. and
T. B. Wright of Burlington told how
the law would injure business and
be unfair to ambitious young men
with limited capital.
H. H. Abbott, a young business
man from Bellows Falls, stated clear
ly the case of the merchants and
manufacturers of that village and
tendered their formal protest.
The Hon. W. A. Lord of Montpelier
opposed the law on the ground that
It was a hybrid with neither sex nor
denomination, mixing up the fiat
rate principle for the sole purpose
of catching certain votes.
Mayor Robert Roberts of Buning
ton spoke on behalf of his fellow cit
iens Faying that the law would fall
because it attempted to legislate
The Hon. John.W. Gordon of
Barre, the most prominent advocate
of the flat rate for Vermont, was
asked to speak if he wished to, and
make a very eloquent and impas
sioned appeal for the general flat
rate principle, but seemed to avoid
treatment of this particular bill, es
pecially with regard to its offset
Question from Mr. Roberts reveal
ed the fact that In Pennsylvania,
where Mr. Gfirdon said the flat rate
had been a success In Increasing the
tax lists, the flat rate In force Is
very much less than 'the rate which
this bill would Impose.
The Hon. C. P. Smith, who hap
pened to be In the audience, was ask
ed some questions by the committee
and In bis reply stated that the
measure under consideration and
the Babbitt bill for the exemption of
money loaned on Vermont rral estate
at five per cent, or under, were In no
way Inconsistent, being designed to
accomplish two different things. The
Babbitt bill he said was designed to
lower the rate of Interest In Vermont
and he believed would do it. This
Mil, he said, was a revenue measure
designed to get more property into the
Pst He said he thought this bill
would be a good one it the flat rate
provided were lowered to about three
per cent, and the Injustice as to off
