Proverbs 3:9 no cuby 'task iti retain one's faith In democratic Kovcrnmcnt when a spectacle like that is witnessed. Ct^en if the repeal of isrohlbition might conceivably sthiJUlate business,, it is. anywhere from !two ,to seven years be fore j it can possibly become a fact. I Is this, then.j the bestj the government of tlhc greatest country on eaith can oTfer its citizens In the time of theili- greatest economic crisis? Perhaps the next saddest thing is the fact that in passing these repeal, resolutions, congress apparently has' completely forgcjtten or else delib- erateljj Ignored the REASONS which e wets themsilyes I advanced for desirirjg to repeal prohibition. The jrepeal of prohibition has been demanjded on the score that a better method of- .contijolling ' the liquor traffic could be devised. Nobody pretended that a return to the wide open saloon was a better method; nobody pretended that an unregulated manufacture and sale by private brewery and distillery interests was appreciably preferable to the present regime by bootleggers. Tlie elimination of the open saloon and the elimination of private profit from manufactii|e and ,sale were a part of at least i^ne out of- ten programs suggested as offering a bet-' STATE INCOIWE TAX. A comralttoe income tax bill has ; been presented to the Kansas legis- i lature atid will doubtles.s soon be passed in substantially its present form. It represents the exprcK .sed •. will of the people who voted for the • income tax amendment to the state ' constitution at the last election and V .. is in confonnity with i>latform : jjlcdges of both parties. There is no • possibility of partisan bickering; the measure as" it i.s finally passed will ' represent the best thought and judgment of the legislature. The bill as submitted by the committee would place a levy of 3 per . , cent on the net income of corporations. 2 per cent on the first thou, sand dollars of personal net income : above exemptions. 2V- per cent on " the second thousand, 3 on the third. _ ; 3'i on the fourth. 4 on the fifth. 5 on the sixth, and 6 on all income in excess of the sixth thousand. Ex^ emutions would be $750 for single persons and $1,500 for married per•,sons; with an additional credit of .-$200 for each dependent. ' Collection of the tax would be by the state and proceeds would go to the state general fund. If enough , were raised to more than pay the ~ state's expenses now raLsed by property tax levies, the balance would go to the retirement of the soldier's bonus bonds. • By and large, it can hardly be le- gardod as other than a good bill. Differences of opinion will be registered concerning exemptions and rates, but no one could object seriously to the schedule outlined by _ the committee. With such low ex- rmptlons, aln^sL everybody who'is profitably employe^ will pay some tax; but with such low rates, nobody ciin po.s.iibly be hurt. A .single .. man paining $25 a week will i)ay a lux of $!l; ft married man with two rhlklnMi would have to earn $3G a . week before he wOuId pay any lax at all. i. The only .serious objection to the bill.; in the opinion of this paper. Is the fact that it contains no specific f guarantee that it will not be "just another tax." If it turns out to produce twice as much money as the stntc now is spending for expenses ' covered fay the state's share of the .property tax, there is nothing within the bill to keep the state from im, mediately and gleefqlly doubling its expenses. Perhaps the legislature can be trusted to use good judgment. Perhaps it is well to wait until the experience of a year or two has shown how much money the tax may be counted on to produce before restrictions on its expenditure are .made; Such a. program would undoubtedly be safe enough for the immediate future. con.sldering the current "tax consciousness" of the people and. the present attitude of all legislators toward economy and reduction of expenses. But the time will come when the legislature can't be trusted. It will spend -JBvery cent it can get its hands _ - on just the minute good times return, and people ease up. the least bit in their howling for lower taxes and' reduced expenditures—just as every legislature in the past 50 years hqs done. Its hands .should be tied with a good stout rope if the income : tax is.td be a relief to the property ~ tax payer, n"ot just another excuse for governmental expansion.. STATESMANSHIP.

There a'ro many sad comments that might be made about the congressional action In voting for repeal, biit the saddest of all is suggested by this paragraph from the .CoffeyvjUe Journal. It is certainly tcr method of controlling the liquor -Lraffic tlian arohibition. Yet congress throws prohibition back in our laps without even a i whisper of a suggestion for the bet- I u-r method that is to take its place, j For all the world you v/ould think that .lh6 crying need had been inot for a correction of the evils of prohibition—but -for more and better and cheaper booze!
