NfiW WAR REVKNUK BILL Has Added About All That Can brf Stood—Talks of the I'ro- bibilion Measure. •Washington, Sept. 10.—Wealth is taxed to about the straining point by the new war revenue bill, Representative I.ongworth, of Ohio, declared 111 Ihe house today when debate on the huge lax measure was resumed. H" warned his hearers lhat any additional taxes levied hereafter must he borne by people purchasing articles of daily necessily and said that as the cost of the war mounts a grealor proportion of It will have to be borne by future generations. Pointing out that congress Is about to exact from the American people a sum which would have more than paid the entire cost of the ^ivil war, both to the Union and Ihe'Confeder acy, Mr. Longworth said Hit: tax of eighty percent en war profils and Ihe maximums nf 70 per cent on excess profits and 77 per cent on Incomes was "mighty near the danger mi:rk." He added that this is a bill " to raise war revenue aild not re-organize society." Not Plunder Bill. "Just as surely as you impose a tax which amounts lo plunder," said the Ohio Representative, "just so surely do you overshuot the mark and render difficult if not impossible the financing necessary to effectively prosecute the war." Most of the coming issue of Liberty bonds. Mr. Longworth said will he purchased by individuals and their purchasing power will he affected directly by the taxes on their incomes. Although lie and other members had doubted lis possibility, the wtiys and means committee, Mr. Longworth continued, had succeeded in framing a bill designed to raise $8,ti00,0no,0 (l(l by taxation without resort to consumption taxes and increased tariff rates. These remain, he added, as additional .sources of revenue in case some of ihose now counted upon are destroyed by legislation or otherwise. About Beer Taxes. Contending that the president's order stopping the manufacture of boor after next December 1, will cause a loss of $500,000,000 in revenue under the new war tax bill,-Mr. Loncwonh said congress may' be forced lo impose consumption taxes sooner than had been expecled. In lhat connection he suggested a tax of seven conts a pound on coffee, 25 cents on tea, ten percent on rubber, 20 percent on wool, 15 percent on hides and one cent on sugar. He estimated these would yield $240,000,000 annually. The Ohio representative, also warned that, the proposed war time national prohibition legislation would reduce the estimated revenue returns from beverages by 1,500,000,000, which with the loss of tho revenue on beer frcm December 1 until the national prohibition measure becomes effective would reduce the estimated revenue under the bill to' G,t)00,000,- 000. Although criticising some of its features, Mr. Longworth commended the hili as a whole as a vast Improvement over the old law. Told of Germany. In concluding the speaker portrayed the conditions under which the German people, "gagged and hoiind, pay bloody tribute to the insatiate ambition of the House of Holienzollern," and sail} that "no citizen of the embattled nations, not «ven the son of the great pacifist Henry Ford, is more surely immune from bodily harm," than are the German lOniperor's six sons, who will he preserved undamaged for posterity." Sons of the presidents of Ihe United States said by comparison have been less timorous. Without mentioning by names his father in law. Col. Rooso- velt, Mr. Longworth said: "All four sons of a former president have been at the real front, three of them married men with children upon whom there was no possible legal obligation. One has perished gloriously on tho field of honor, two have been wounded, one so seriously that he has been invalided home; tho only one who has escaped injury has been decorated for conspicuous gallantry in action." Taft's 8on, T°o. tin added that a son of the only other living ex-president, referring to Mr. Taft, is at the front and that if President Wilson had been blessed with sons of fighting age, they too, would have been on the firing line. "Let patriotism,"' Mr. Ixingworth said, "continue to 'banish all selfish and partisan spirit from our deliberations and make us brothers in the cause, so lhat we may stand shoulder to shoulder, northerner and southerner, Republican and Democrat, united indissoluhly during this war by the passionate resolve that government of the kaiser, by the kaiser and for tho kaiser, shall perish from the earth."

ADVANTAGE ^ IN NAVY Civilians Given Use of (he Rifle Ranges for Snapshooting. INSTRUCTORS ARE PROVIDED Are Ten Nnvy Ranges in .Eastern nail the Western Seaboards where Civilians Train. Washington, Sept. 10.—So that ev- eri - American may have his chanco to learn to shoot, tho Navy Department has sent letters to the governors of all states, directing their attention to the fact that naval rifle ranges are open to the use of civilians and that instructors are provided to give all comers a thorough course in markmanshlp and the handling of the rifle. There arc len navy ranges, located in the eastern and western seaboards, and on the Ureat Lakes, in which civilians will be trained. Those located within navy yards or naval training,, stations are reserved for exclusive iise of tlie navy personnel. This move is In accordance with a ! provision of the National Defenso gAct which provides that, where practicable, ranges shall be open for use by men in any branch of the military or naval service or by any uble- bodled male citizen capable of bearing turns. The particular purpose Is to permit the training of state troops and citizens who are likely - to be called into military service through the draft. Regulations governing tho use of the navy ranges are purposely made very broad so that every person, so Inclined may take the course with little inconvenience. State troops and organizations, and bodies of citizens not banded in any organization, may enter and citizens individually may arrange lo take the prescribed course by attending . half days at times that suit his convenience. Special Course in Machine Gun. A special coarse in machine gunnery is available to a limited number of men, extending over tho period of a week. New classes in machine gunnery will be formed each week from among those who have qualified with the rifle anil desire the further training. This course will include all the types of machine guns now In use— Colts, Lewis, Hrowning and Marlln types. At the same time that this instruction of civilians is carried on, naval range officers expect to materially Increase the capacity of the ranges, ,by using them without stopping 1 as long as daylight Is sufficient for firing. At present, the normal cnpaclty of a range is cttiisitlertHl as ten men for each target available, hut this can he doubled, range ofl leers say, by using the targets without stop at the noon hour and continuing Ihe firing until tlusk, a double shift of Instructors and range men being used. The ranges will not be closed during the winter, but will be open lo civilians from the present time until the conclusion of the war. unless the order ^ Is countermanded, practice being held every day, including Sunday. All organizations or Individuals desiring to enter are requested lo write or telephone the range nearest them and not to write to Ihe Navy Department at Washington, which already is receiving a volume of necessary mall that taxes its capacity. All Information can bo obtained by addressing the commanding officer of the range nearest the applicant, la cases where It Is possible to appear In person at lho range, tills is even more desirable than writing. Ail are expected to conform to tho same practice, study, work and other duties required of men of tho navy and they will be given tho same course of instruction, practice and training. It Is aimed to have the ranges co-operate systematically wllh state or local authorities. To Quarter Civilians. Arrangements have been made lo quarter the civilians desiring to stay at tho range s'or a day or more. At all the ranges ihere are eantenmenls' or tent camps and for those staying over night, cots will be provided in comfortable quarters, the only thing the citizen is required to provide being his own blankets. Meals will be served at Ihe regular mess far twenty-five cents for one nienl, or fifty_ cents a day, the food being tho regular ration issued to men in the service. Men going to the ranges should carry mess gear (mess pan, knife, fork, spoon and cup) if possible, but such gear will he Issued to those wbd come unprovided. The same Is true of dungarees (overalls) which will be issued if available, to those men who do not bring their own. A full course of Instruction nnd practice leading to tho qualification of expert riflemen can be taken in a short time over the ranges. There are three qualifications, nurses, marksman, sharpshooter und expert rifleman; and as the student qualities in one course he is privileged to begin the next until all have been taken. Records of firing will be kept and will bo regularly furnished to organizations when so desired. Individuals will be furnished with certificates of qualification. The permanent range force at each of the navy establishments provide an instructor at each firing point, telephone men, and officers and petty Officers in chafgo of" tho butts. Markers in buttB may bo detailed from among lho transients and sucli men are not engaged In firing will be. available for such other duties as hlay be assigned by the commanding officer of the range. I The ranges are equipped wllh both Springfield and Enfield rifles. Tho courses for-eiviliuus will bo shot, at first, with the Enfield rlgle, which is the type in use by the army abroad and supplementary courses will bo shot with the Springfield.
