Every single person (citizen or foreign
resident), whose Income exceeds $3,000,
and every person with an Income above
J14.O00, is expected to report his or her
receipts in detail to the government
agents March 1 of each year.
The estimate completed today Indicates
that the income tax will produce JS2,

this will bo added the $35,000,000 or more
produced by the 'present corporation tax,
which Is continued as part of the law.

After tho most successful Ilrst week In
the history of Ak-Snr-Ben, from both tho
standpoint of attendance at to carnival
and enthusiasm among both Omaha p.nd
out-of-town people, the socond week,
which promises to be moro successful
than the first, starts today when tho
doors of tho carnival open ngaln. The

Saturday was t"e biggest day last week,
with an attendance of over 18,000, and, as
Saturday generally runs from 5,000 to 15,000
lower than the parade days, it can oaslly
bo seen that tho carnival will record
greater crowds than ever before,
Pn.rU Show Postponed
OmV two events were scheduled for Ak-
Sar-rteiT'nlerfVmakBTa ycsterSaVi- the -wild
west at Rotirke park and the wild west at
the Auditorium, but the rain caused the
oponalr event -at the ball park to be post-
The ahow at the Auditorium last night
was more than well patronized and tho
large building was packed to capacity
The rain waa doubly welcome to tho
carnival men because it cleaned the con-
fettl-Docked streets and washed tho tents
and fronts and prevented tho showmen
and concession merchants indulging in
hurling maledictions at themselves be
cause they could not enjoy the business
that lovely weather would bring If they
were allowed to open.
The carnival men believe that the rain
will serve tho same purpose the rain of
the first day did. Rain inevitably brings
out crowds the following day and a big
business is anticipated tomorrow, To
day absolutely no confetti will bo thrown
and the governors of tho .tk-Sor-Ben be
lieve people who remained away from
the carnival before, because of the con
fetti will attend this evening when they
will not be nnnoyed interfering young
me,n with confetti.
This week Is the big week. The first
parade, tho floral' automobile parade, will
be held tomorrow, Over fifty machines
have enterd and all hove been decorated
by experts, many by Qus Rcnzle at the
Den. The board of governors and Dad
Weaver assert that it wll lbe the best
floral parade ever hold.
Klectrlcnl Parade Wednesdays
Wednesday evening comes the big
electrical parade. Qus llenze and his
big floats aro knpw'n from one end of
the country to tho other and Itenze has
out-done himself this year in his efforts
to have bigger and. bettor floats. Wednes
day Is the big day nt the carnival, too,
and every body will have a special stunt
for that night.
On Thursday, the German day parade
Is the principal event. Tho German day
parade is an innpvatlon for tho Ak-Sar-ben,
but it Is expected to prove a popu
lar one. Because of the change in the
program, which necessitates the use of
the Brandels theater for the speaking
in place of the Audjtorlum, where the
wild west show Is being held, the route
of the parade has been changed and will
not follow the route of the other parades.
Friday evening Is the evening of the
crowning event of King Ak-8ar-Ben XIX.
On that eveplng the coronation ball will
be held at the Den and the king and
queen for the ensuing year will have
the Jeweled crowns placed on their heads
and the royal scepters In their hands.
The ball Is to be exclusive this year, no
one being admitted as spectators asanas
been the custom in previous years.
Saturday the festivities will close as the
carnival comes to a conclusion that night.
Every thing up to date has pointed to a
most successful year and If pleasant
weather prevails the remainder of this
week there is little doubt that tho Ak,-Sar-Ben
will not establish a-record that
will stand for sometime, f
