Pastor. Governmental Cost Has Multiplied Six Times In 20 Years (Continued from first page.) $44.000 a year more than it was twenty years ago. And the steady tendency of these sovernmental costa is CO increase. "Spend more money and increase es." is the slogan of the ordinary polltician, regardless of his party. Right now the United States government is up against the problem of where the tax money is coming from.

Incomes are down, and Income-taxes down in proportion. Any new kinds of taxes are bound to be resented. and be difficult, not impossible, to collect. Already our customs revenues are declining. in spite of the Increased duties under the new tariff law.

because our business men are not Im-! porting goods for which they have no sale. The other solution is to cut expenses. The question at once arises. "Where?" Any effort to cut the cost of the Army or the Nary, to abandon the pension system or refuse further Federal aid to to stop work on public Improvements or let our merchant marine shift for itself is certain to arouse a storm of opposition such as no polltician dares to face. There is a strong movement to repeal the prohibition amendment, backed not only by those who helleve prohibition is a failure but by others who would like to restore the revenue the Government used to get from the tax on beer and spirits.

Thst averaged about $225.000.000 a year up to 1920. and might easily yield much more than that the sale of alcoholic drink were re-legalized. But that would be but a drop in the bucket compared with the Government's present need of either lopping off from one to two billion of expense or finding new sources of revenue to that amount. There will be loud cries of "economy" heard from political leaders of all I parties from now on. But, pressed for details as to where they are going to cut first.
