J. H. CHAPMAN, Editor. Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice of Winslow. Arizona, under Act of Congress of March 1. 1879. Published every Friday. Sub cription, $2.00 per year. Friday, - - December 21, 1917. Congressman Hayden has in troduced a bill in Congress to make it a crime to forcibly deport any citizen from one state to another. The bill is directed at such crimes as were recently per petrated at Bisbee and Gallup. It seems almost a moekery to celebrate the birthday anniver sary of the Great Prince of Peace this year when practically all the Christian nations are engaged in a war forced by commercial greed and ambition for power. The momentary look of doubt in the eyes of your wife when you present her with a bouquet or box of candy is not caused by lack of appreciation of the gift, but she is wondering what friend husband has been doing that prompted the offering. Perhaps if the two warring su gar trusts keep up telling the truth about each other in the in vestigation of the threatened su gar famine, the general public may get a little inside informa tion as to how they have been systematically robbed for some time. Dunbar’s Weekly says our Sam Proctor is to be a candidate next summer for the democratic nomi nation as a member of the corpo ration commission. Sam is a good fellow, and ought to have the nomination, but the Maricopa gang will probably slip the skids under him as they did last year. There will certainly be a high standard of efficiency maintained in this war, when President Wilson appoints a beer expert as the government inspector of ex plosives. Os course, the appointee is a deserving democrat, and be ing a beer expert makes him thoroughly competent to dis charge his new duties. Nation-wide prohibition won a victory in Congress Monday when the joint resolution providing for the submission of the constitu tional amendment to the several states passed the House. The time alloted for the ratification of the amendment by the states is limited to seven years. The day of booze is fast drawing to a close. Last Monday night a bomb ex ploded under the governor’s mansion at Sacramento, Calif., resulting in the wrecking of a portion of the building, but not injuring any of the occupants. It is supposed the bomb was placed for the purpose of killing Gov. Stephens,, but what reason would prompt such a deed is not apparent. Congress is now going to in vestigate the war and navy de partments to ascertain if possible just why these departments have been so dilatory in supnlying the fighting forces with proper equip ment. The investigation is not for the purpose of bringing out the facts, but to conceal the truth from the public. A white washing report it is hoped will silence all criticism. The Phoenix Messenger takes himself too serious in his insist ence that democratic aspirants for the gubernatorial nomination should set forth their respective platforms so the people can judge of their fitness. Setting forth their platforms will not clarify the atmosphere, because the dem ocratic office-holders trust in Maricopa county, aided and abetted by the Valley Bank and the interests behind it will do the selecting for the democrats not only for governor, but all the other places on the ticket. Income Tax. You won’t have to figure out your own income tax all by your self hereafter. The government is going to send out men to help you. It will be up to you to hunt up these men, who will be sent into every county seat town, and some other towns besides, to meet the people. Postmasters, bankers and newspapers will be able to tell you when the govern ment’s income tax man will be around and where to find him. He will answer your questions, swear you to the return, take your money, and remove the wrinkles from your brow. Re turns of income for 1917 must be made between January 1 and March 1, 1918. ‘TheGovernment recognizes,” Collector of Internal Revenue Lewis T. Carpenter said to-day, ‘‘that many persons experience a good deal of difficulty in filling out income tax forms. It recog nizes too, that taxpayers resident at points where collector’s offices are not easily accessible find it hard to get proper instruction in the law. Next year, when every married person living with wife or husband and having a net in come of S2OOO, and every un married person not the head of a family and having a net income of SIOOO for the year 1917 must make return of income on the form prescribed, there will be hundreds in every community seeking light on the law, and help in executing their returns. My own and every other collec tion district in the nation will be divided into districts, with the county as the unit, and a govern ment officer informed in the in come tax assigned to each dis trict. He will spend hardly less than a week in each county, and in some counties a longer time, very likely in the courthouse at the county seat town. In cities where there are collector’s branch offices he will be there, and in other cities possibly at the city hall. My office will in due time advise postmasters and bankers and send out notices to the news papers stating when the officer will be in each county. It will be unnecessary for prospective taxpayers to ask my office for forms on which to make returns. The officer who visits their county will have them. “It may be stated as a matter of general information that ‘net income’ is the remainder after substracting expenses from gross income.

Come in and leave your measure. Phone 64. 110 Kinsley Avena«, living expense is not expense in the meaning of the law, the ex emption being allowed to cover such expenses. “The new exemptions of SIOOO and S2OOO will add tens of thous ands to the number of income taxpayers in this district, inas much as practically every farmer, merchant, tradesman, profes sional man and salary worker and a great many wage workers will be required to make return and pay tax. “The law makes it the duty of the taxpayer to seek out the collector. Many people assume that if an income tax form is not sent, or a government officer does not call, they are relieved from making report. This is decidedly in error. It is the other way round. The taxpayer has to go to the government and if he doesn’t within the time prescribed, he is a violator of the law, and the government will go to him with its penalties.” They are eating horse meat in New York, and now they want to get the habit universally fixed all over the country. Why not try dog meat? Indians have been eating them for genera tions, and seem to thrive. IN THE JUSTICE COURT, Win slow precinct, County of Na vajo, state of Arizona.
