TllK OU> (Jt'KHTION ABOUT THR ISCt- DKM'E Oh 1 THK I\COMK TAX As the tlnifi approaches for legislative consideration oC th« Income tax issue some of the arguments against the tux which were exploded In the prc-prmuiry campaign art- reappearing. AmoiiK thrill is the argument that the tax would bo parsed mi to the consumer, which would 7neau that I lie rich would escape and the poor, as always, would have to pay. Plain Talk, of DCS Molne.s, seeks to fortify this theory liy (-[iinting from a recent article in. The Nation's Huslni'ss. For the purposes of this editorial the following excerpt is .sufficient: "We have seen the taxi* on railroads and other public utilities mount into the hundreds of millions; but who really pays tluve taxes? Their customers. Taxes on insurance, fire 1 , life, and other kinds have doubled and tripled, to be paid l>y their policy-holders. ICven the modest storekeeper must figure hi.s taxes as u part of hie cost of dohiK business. The consumer always pays. Sometimes the tax is hidden, sometimes in the open, as it \va.s when the government placed a war tax on automobiles, or as it i« with our gasoline tax, but we pay. It just the .same. Sugar, coffee, clothing—no matter what, practically every article sold has a tax charge connected with it ... "While the poor pay no direct taxes, the indirect taxes passed on to them in increased rents, in the pennies and nickels and dimes added to the cast of everything they buy, has materially increased their burden. Corporations and business in general pass on their taxes in the purchase price of articles sold. The wealthy often <::in conceal part of their property or invest In tax free bonds and thus escape to some extent. It is the person of moderate-means, the known. And yet they have the f£«r to protest' the results of their own attitude, fad'witness tfitt* very editorial In the Dally News; i,The wun&h driver Is a menace and laws .against hhrushould be "strictly enforced," but tlierts ,,1* dnly'one truly effective method of ertfpw£ment of the laws against'the liquor that makes him a menace—"that applied by. the ."reason and the moral .sense, of the Individual"'! . There may be consistency in this,-but the distinction Is too fine for ua and wo deny It. We say that If the great, newspapers of Chicago and New York 'will get,'behind the 18th amendment arid sup))ort .It, with the. same, energy: that they now devote to the contrary course, enforcement of prohibition will within five years approach that of any other law. \Ve say that If'they will back enforcement of prohibition to the limit the drunken driver will disappear and the liquor racketeer will be forced out of 'business. We charge the metropolitan newspapers of this country and the public men of our cities with open and direct responsibility for non-enforcement of prohibition, for the vicious and appalling criminal liquor situation of the day, and for the cause back of It all, the shocking spectacle of millions of otherwise law-abiding citizens who have been misled by great and supposedly respectable organs of publicity Into exaltation of devilish Intoxicants as symbols of personal liberty and constitutional right.

Some years ago we had cards like thla printed and. .posted in the front office- and the back shop— i • .;...• • "Hoy's OrPrconts," meaning an overcoat for or belonging to a single boy. "Hoys' Ovcrcouts," meaning overcoats for or belonging to more than one boy. "It^ well known," meaning "It in well knonn." "HoHpltm May Close Its Doors," (no possessive sign). Not the exact wording, the same being no longer recalled and the cards gone, but the same Idea. The reporters and the printers read the cards and then blandly put the possessive sign whore It didn't belong or left It out where It did belong, just the same as before. At Irregular Intervals we publish a mimeographed sheet called "The Correspondent," which Is §ent to all Advance correspondents. They too-4cad the cautions about use of the possessive sign and then (or so It almost seems to the exasperated copy reader) take pains to put It in the wrong place. particular Another thing: Among copy readers one of Townships have all but been divested of au- tlle seven wonders of the world le the number home owner, the farm owner, the small business man who carries not only his full share of the concealed taxes but more than his share of direct taxe.s. He is the real goat in this taxation scheme of ours." Not having read the rest of the article in question, the Advance in not in a position to say positively that the author was not speaking of the income tax, but it is certain that nothing in the clipping indicates that he was. In fact he appears to be discussing the incidence of the ordinary run of general and special taxes only, and if so there is nothing in his remarks with which u.'.vocate.s of the income tax do not agree. Quite the contrary, indeed, for the income-tax- era point to the very fact that practically all other taxes are shifted to consumers as one of the main reasons for the income tax, which it is difficult and usually impossible to shift. The reason.the ordinary run of taxes can be shifted i.s that they are uniform and apply to all alike, and the reason the income tax cannot as a rule be .shifted is that it Is not uniform but graduated and not everybody has to pay it. Plain Talk and others will get the idea if they .will take aii an example two dealers in gasoline Jn the same town, both married, both without other dependents than the wives. One, "let us say, is favorably located and makes a yearly profit of $5,000; the others, lean favorably located, clears only $2,000. Now, both of these dealers will have to pay the ga.fi tax. In that respect they stand on exactly the. same footing, so both will pass the tax on to the consumer; But how about the income tax? Tho dealer who is clearing only $2,000 a year will have none to pay, but the dealer who is clearing $5,000 a year will have $60 to pay. Will the dealer who has to pay pass the tax on to his customers? Obviously he cannot do so. In the first place the tax amounts to only an in- finitosinm! fraction of a cent on each gallon of gas he sells, and in the .second place he could not raise his price without losing business to his competitor the profits on which would exceed the tax.,. The re.sult will be that he' will pay the tax out of hi.s own pocket. And for like- reasons practically everyone who has un income tax to pay must pay it himself and cannot shift the tax to his customers. The best authority- on this little understood question Is Prof. E. R. A. Seligman, one of the world's ablest economists. On January 9, 1925, Congressman William It. Green, of Iowa, caused to be inserted in the Congressional Record an exhaustive discussion of the incidence of the Income lux. In hi.s introduction the congressman said that Professor Sellgman's argument "proves conclusively that, contrary to common opinion, Income fixes cannot be shifted." A copy of this masterly exposition Is being sent to Mr. Gallai-no, able editor of Plain Talk, and if he will read and reread it till he thoroughly understands the argument we shall not again see him betraying economic ignorance and misleading readers, including fellow editors, by confusing thorlty over their roads, and now local assessors are to be legi.slaled out of existence. What will be the ultimate result of the disappearance of local government? Will progressive centralization of power sometime end in tyranny? It is not exaggeration to say that Senator Brookhart i.s the target for at least 50 Iowa newspaper attacks every week. These range from smart paragraphs to labored editorials. It does not speak well for the influence of the newspapers that the attacks seem to do the senator little political harm. The next irrigation project will meet with of people who fondly Imagine that the proper way to form the plural Is to put the possessive sign before the "s." Thus Innumerable times every week every weekly newspaper copy reader Is obliged to delete the sign in such phrases as this: "Mr. and Mrs. John Doe, of Podunk, were guests Sunday of the Richard Koc's." To young copy readers inclined to be punctilious about punctuation it's most discouraging; but by and by It dawns on them that it's best not to feel too superior to the common herd, and usually they arrive at this philosophical conclusion upon discovery that they themsely.es make just as ridiculous mistakes whenever they hard sledding in Congress, no matter how much! attempt another fellow's job. log-rolling is done. What has long been apparent to the rest of the country, to-wit, that we need no more reclaimed land to add to our surplus production, is at last beginning to dawn on our brilliant senators and representatives. Abolition of lame duck sessions of Congress seems near. If this is done and the new Congress meets in January instead of a year after election, shall we gain or lose from the standpoint of good government? The current assumption that there is but one side to this question is unwarranted. Often a chance to think things over is of the highest value. It is now more than a year since a gigantic crash In New York stocks advised' the country that a period of business depression had begun. Most depressions last only a year to 18 months, but this one i.s complicated by the fact that it is worldwide. Nevertheless the prediction that we are about to round the turn toward better times appears justified. Opinions of the Editors Lickings arc X-eedpd Occasionally.

It is .worth reading, if for no other reason, then because it is a somewhat* saner appeal to reason than is usually found in a metropolitan newspaper. Not, as we shall presently attempt to demonstrate, that the reasoning is flawless, but that anything even approaching lair discussion of the liquor question in u. newspaper published in a great city is remarkable. We agree without reservation with the opening sentence.' The tendency of the present agitation — tho agitation, not the 18th amendment itself, mark you—to glorify the right to drink as a priceless privilege is not only disturbing but astonishing. Who would have thought that in this modern and supposedly enlightened age, the privilege to indulge an admittedly useless, to say nothing of harmful or vicious, appetite could be eo exalted? The spectacle of millions of otherwise sane people clamoring for a right which means exactly zero to 'their welfare and spells degradation and- misery for many is in fact unutterably The situation amounts to :i sad commentary on the degree- of our 'boasted civilization. We agree also with the statement that more of the resentment which .statutory prohibition has awakened .is; the result pf high pretisure wet propaganda than of spontaneous Indignation at the law's 'interference'v!-lth the individual's freedom of action,'but we would go farther: we are convinced, that hut,.for this propaganda there would 'be little demand for repeal of prohibition or modification and that the law would be 'immeasurably better enforced. Enforcement of law is largely a matter of having public opinion behind it. In metropolitan territory this condition does not at present exist, and the reason is that great organs of publicity have debased their pro- feaston by resort to every art to influence the easily Jed masses against the law. This is the feature of the campaign against the l&th amendment which Is most astounding, mosf inexplicable. Under pretense of an interpretation of individual rights which is more difficult to understand than the Einstein theory, great newspapers have prostituted their vast power in aid or the worst curse man has ever [Chicago Dally News.] Not tho least disturbing feature of the present agitation against the eighteenth amendment to the federal constitution is I^s apparent tendency to glorify the right to drink intoxicating liquor as if it were a priceless privilege. Strangely, statutory prohibition has served to obscure the Important fact that in many activities any liquor that befuddle* the brain or interferes with the physical powers is banned for reasons having nothing to do with the Volstead law. And in the years that have passed since that law was enacted the rapid mechanization of industry has greatly increased the menace of alcohol. Intoxicating liquor is, of course, one of the chief perils of motoring. The most abstinent of motorlHts is imperiled by every tipsy fool who drives by him. Persons who think that drunken drivers are rare under prohibition should take pains to count the number of empty booze bot- tle.s strewn along any mile of parkway adjoining a city boulevard in the early morning, particularly after a holiday. Many states have laws fixing severe punishments for drunken drivers. Such laws should be in effect everywhere and should be strictly enforced. A proper drivers' license law properly applied should keep from the steering .wheels of motor ears drunkards, criminals, and lunatics. Some present-day drivers would qualify under all three classifications. Locomotive engineers, and trainmen generally, aviators, workers in charge of many kinds of intricate machinery or toote of precision— these number hundreds of thousands. Liquor drinking is not for them. Any worker with hand or brain who values clear thinking and steady nerves leaves intoxicants alone either because he hates them or because he declines to surrender mastery of his powers to an insidious narcotic. The modern world with its Innumerable complex mechanical forces is a. world constructed for clear heads and competent hands. Every passing hour intensifies the truth- of this statement. Statutory prohibition as now established undertakes to substitute tho penalties of .jnan- made law for the reason and the'will power of the individual. It is a pity that a method .so simple, though so crude and arbitrary, does not work. It is a still greater pity that the resentment which the law has awakened—much of it due to spontaneous indignation at the law's interference with the individual's freedom of ac- WHEHV im> WEDNESDAY 007 WEDNESDAY—Up at 4 and after a dish of shredded wheat washed down with sugar-cream- less coffee to the office 'by.5:30, where finished the editorial and the Colyum, very witty about other people's bad spelling and grammar, especially H.

The rigidity of prohibition enforcement under the Volstead law is relaxing in notable ways, as in the matter of liquor made and used m the home and in the manufacture and 'distribution of grape juices ready for transformation Into wine by ribald nature. At the same time federal authority is descending more heavily and more surely upon leaders in the illicit liquor traffic. Yet effective enforcement of prohibition Is. rpr mote at best. There is only one "truly effective method of enforcement—that applied by the reason and the moral sense of the individual.
