Recom mending tho ndoptlon of a joint reso lution by two-thirds of both houses proposing to tho status nn nmend mont to tho constitution granting tho fedornl government tho right to lovy nnd collect nn Inconio tax, President Taft sont n special message- to con gross today. ' Tho messogo nlso recommended as part of tho nondlnir tariff bill nn ox- clso tax upon ah corporntlonnntnount Inir trt ,... .... ..... llA'JA-t. I.. come. " In opening tho mossniro rofors in the fact thnt President Taft invited the. attention of congress to tho no co<y of rovlslon of tho tariff and that his having pointed out tho ob ligation to nrrnngo duties which would secure nn udequuto iucomo for tho government. Today's, messngo refers to Taft's provlous suggestion that if it is not possible to socuro a sufficlont Iucomo by Import duties thnt now kinds of tnxaton must bo adopted nnd among them ho suggests tho Inhorltnnro tax. On this subject tho messngo says: Tho house of roprosontatlvcs hns ndopted tho suggestion and provided a bill for tho collection of such a tax. In tho senate tho action of tho fl nanco comimttoo nnd tho courso of tno dobntq Indicates that this provi sion may not bo agreed to. "It is now proposed to mnko up tho deilclt by tho Imposition of n fodoral Inconio tax in form and sub- nmount-1 stanco .almost., exactly .tho samo as -S&ln-AtlMJJilMlfll -SflS5okTvorsus tho - Farmors' Loan and Trust Company, wuicn was noid uy tno suproino court to bo n direct tax and thoroforo uot within tho power of tho foderal gov ernment to lmposo unless apportioned among tho sevoral states according to their population." Continuing nlong this lino tho pres ident states that tho government Is tluiB deprived or power It ought to linvo and mnturo consideration satis fies him that a constitutional amend ment Is tho only proper courso for tho establishment of this powor to tho fullest extent. Tho message thon says: "I therefore recommend to con gress thnt both houses by two-thirds vote shnll propose nn amendment to tho constitution conferring powor to levy nn inconio tax upon the govern ment without apportionment among tho states In proportion to their pop ulation. It Is said that tho difficulty and delay In securing tho approval of throo-fourtliH of tho states will de stroy tho chanco of. tho adoption of tho nmondmont. But I am convinced thnt a great mnjorlty of tho pooplo of mis couiury invor tno vesting in tho national govornmont tho power to lovy nn Income tax nnd that thoy will socuro Its adoption In tho states It Is proposed to thorn. "I thoroforo also recommend nn nmendmont to tho tariff bill Impos ing on nil corporations and joint stock companies, organized for profit, excopt national bankB (othorwiso taxed), savings banks and building nnd loan associations, an exclso meas ured by two por cent of tho not in conio of such corporations. This is nn excise tax upon tho privilege of uotng business an an artificial ontlty nnd of freedom from conornl iinrtnnr- shlp Ilnblllty onjoyod by thoso who own stock. I am informed that a two per cont tax of this character would result In paymont into tho treasury of not loss than $25,000,000. Tho president discusses this tax at length, pointing out tho many ad vantages ho sees In It. In conclusion tho messngo says: "If by a perfectly logltlmato nnd effectlvo systom of taxation wo nro inciuentniiy nblo to possess for tho government, stockholders nnd public, knowledge of tho ronl business trans actions, gains nnd profits of every corporation In tho country, wo hnvo mado n long stop toward supervisory control of corporations which may prevent further abuse of their powor."
