NUMBER 272. TrtxIiiK Bachelors. • Tho Republic of Sjtli,zor)atid is the European (jjountry^ whoso system of tnxiUion ino^tu rosoinblGs/ our.own. It Isihe only country where* • there is any considerahld tat upon 'property. The countries? in! which • thd l aristocracy is n>6to c pbSyeWul''goiidriiiiy talsd-inost of thjelrl?r(iyonue8 by jmliraet: taxes. In SwIttfeHahdithq-iindirect , taxes arc of cdmparntivoly little 'importance. Commerce with tfie surrounding nations is practically frco. In the assessment of local taxes the democratic cantons arc not content with a property' tax, but most of them assess at a higher rate tho property • of a rich mart than the property of the -poor. A .good' many years ago this principle* .was- adopted by Basic, Zurich, and several of the. smaller cantons, and a law has recently been passed in Vnud by which 1 'this canton also adopts tho system of progressive taxation: The Vauil law'di- vides real pi-operty into throu classes and personal property into seven classes. Tho lowest class in each division includes property under $5,000. The rate of taxation is 1 per 1,000. Estates that belong to the second class are taxed 1J. per 1,000, and those bo- longing to the, highest class are taxed 4 per 1,000. There is also a retrogressive . tax upon earnings, and in this each individual is allowed' in returning'his income to deduct $80 for each person dependent upon him. It is easy to see how ... different! ;is the working of such a tax from the working of an indirect tax. An indirect tax upon sugar and salt, for instance, falls almost as heavy upoii a man who has $300 as upon a man who,, has $30,000. ' According to the principle of the "Swiss, aax, the man who bus $30,000 ought to pay more than 100 times 'as much as the man who has $300. . By the Swiss principle 'the! man with an income of $800, ;who has a wife and two children dependent upon him, would pay no taxes at .nil, while a bachelor with the same income would pay upon $220. If, on the other Hand, the revenue'was'' raised bya'tax upon sngar^and salt, the man with a family would pay a great' deal more than a bachelor. The social justice of the SSviss principle is rec'ognize'd by almost all recent writers on taxation, and we notice that it is gaining, more; and more favor here in America. - ; One of tlie results of the ; Swiss system of taxation ids ,the remarkably equal distribution of property in the country.. — '' ' The importance of purifying the Wood cannot be overestimated, lor without pure blood you cannot enjoy good health.
