NET INCOME TAXATION The Iowa Association for Tax Jus -tlce has for some time been con Quoting an active campaign of pro through the mails. Once o twice a week every newspaper In the TBtate receives . literature for th< swastebasket. The association seem to toe well financed, as, indeed, 1 •ought to be, with a Bettendorf at It tiead. The Bettendorf family Is rep uted wealthiest in Iowa. Probabb *the association is supported b> esnany other wealthy interests. 1 •tought to be, for it was got up i their behalf. The association Is promoting a ""Ism." Its proponents like to call i •». gross income tax. In fact It is •Corm of general sales tax. Th scheme is to do away with all othe taxation and substitute a tax o sales. There would be no prop «rty taxation whatever. Everyon *who sold anything, be it goods o .services, would pay a tax on th Bale. The receipts would be collect •ed by the state and after reserva •tion of enough for state needs woul *e allocated for local purposes. Schemes like this attract mind Tinschooled in economics. This is es 'Jiecially true in hard times. On pa •iper such "isms" look workable an jseem to promise Utopia. Untutore •eyes do not see the hard practical lies which stand in the way. Some •times, however, the men at the head *>f the propaganda know well what •ithey are about, and undoubtedly that is true in this case. This gross income tax is a smoke •ecreen. The "Bettendorfs and their 31k have no idea that, it will be ^adopted. Their object is to defeat the state net income tax. If they •can lay the net income tax ghost 3ow the gross income tax will never 3be heard of again. All sales taxes are unfair, because they burden the poor without burdening the rich, and they do not distribute the cost of government ac•-cording to ability to pay. The new federal sales taxes furnish a multi- -tude of instances. The poor man -who buys a stamp, for example, pays ^precisely the same tax as a millionaire. The only fair tax is the net in -come tax. Under any form of sales -taxation, including: so-called gross income taxation, no attention is paid to profit. A farmer who sold goods at cost or less, as all farmers are "now doing, would be taxed just the •*ame. A manufacturer in one line who. did a $100,000 business 'at a jprofit of $10,000 would pay $1,000 at «, cent on the dollar, while a manufacturer in another line who did a •$30,000 business at the same $10,000 profit would get off with $300. Such differences in gross income and ^profit are common.. The gross income tax cannot'be made., to nar- «npnize such inequalities. "The net income tax reaches profit ••only. No one who does not make a ^profit pays it. The cost, of living is iMtempted. Above that the tax Is •laid according to ability to pay. All •economists agree that ability to pay 4s the only true measure of taxation. iNo property tax, no selective sales meets this t?st, though both -must be retained In some degree for ipractical reasons. Most unfair of "all taxes would be a gross income or •igross sales tax, because it would fall Oieavily on the less able and lightly »n wealth. air question? t ' the Advance has received from.Ci Fred Ptfrtef, acting auditor of elate, 10 following letter under date of une 26! "In reply to yours of the 23rd re- ardlng compensation of 43. W. Clark of Mason City, he, filed a lalm for expense during'the 43rd eneral assembly In the amount of 463.85, .which was paid on May 16, 929, by auditor of state's warrant 9,559. He filed expense claim for xpense during the 44th general as embly in the amount of 4397.08, This claim will not be paid on account of the recent decision of the lUpreme court." Here is the question: 'Why did the Globe-Gazette single out 'Senator 'atterson for "salary grab" attack and never attack the Cerro Gordo senator on the same ground? , Nothing herein is .intended'as a reflection on Senator^ Clark, brother of the Rev. F. J. Clark, Algona Con- regational pastor. Senator Clark is now v state insurance commissioner. This Is not Sen. C. F. Clark of Cedar Rapids, republican nominee for lieutenant governor. Timely Topics At the national democratic con ventlon at Chicago last week there was a disposition on the part of number of Iowa delegates to break away from instructions 'by the stati democratic convention last 'spring in favor of Roosevelt. John Sullivan Waterloo delegate, chlded the mal contents and vigorously scored the doubtful ethics Involved in breaking faith with a pledge, calling upon both delegates and gallery booers t 'conduct our business as gentle men, not as roughnecks." Such fine sense of honor was to be ex pected of a cousin of the late John Sullivan, of Algona. Iowa will still be dry if the pro posed 20th amendment is adopted unless in the meantime we repea the state prohibitory laws enacte many years ago. This may be ba news to many an ardent Iowa foe o the 18th amendment who has fondl been taking it for granted that th 20th amendment would automatic ally restore liquo"? In all forms i this state.

Nobody can tell the Freeman-Journal that any loyal 'republican who is loyal to the best interests of the state should support Mr. Long if he is nominated. On the contrary, it is the duty of every good citizen of Iowa to oppose him at the polls on election day should he be renomin- ated. / Milton Herald—Long conducted his campaign by mailing out to thousands of Iowa voters what might be called a vindication sheet— the entire sheet being an attack on the official conduct of those officials who were in any way connected with his suspension but no explanation was made of the charges preferred by the Commission that he- had collected money wrongfully from the State. . Northwood. Anchor—-No one can figure why Mr. Long, suspended from-.offlee on a charge of misappropriation of funds, and drawing a generous salary from the state while doing nothing in return, should have received such a vote from the people of Iowa. It can be explained only upon the theory that people vote blindly. D. N. Luse, 'Farmer, in Letter to Emmetsburg Democrat—I refer to the more than 100,000 votes in this educated ^tate for a man suspended from office by the governor after a long trial, and but a short time ago that proved him to be a petty graft- KARL W. FISCHER FOR STATE AUDITOR The official state tabulation of. republican primary returns on auditor •of state shows a majority of 81 for 3Long, ousted auditor, over Karl W. •Fischer, of Vinton. As regards all candidates no one received a majority, and .Long's vote was -only one- -*hlrd of the total. No one received •the'35 per cent required to nomln- «te. The state convention is of «ourse not legally bound to nominate 'Long, nor is it morally bound in •view of his narrow showing over JTischer. Whether the Kossuth delegation is «jorally bound to support Fischer «nay be a close question, but since TPischer won a considerable majority 3>ere, it looks as if the delegation -ought to support Fischer, at least as Song as he maintains a sizeable show of strength. If newspaper comment ds an indication of what will happen, Fischer is likely to be named «on the first ballot anyhow. Mr. did not fool the newspapers as *e fooled one-third of the voters, mnd ,for once the newspapers exhlb- .tted sound political sense. Fischer is probably of German de- ascent, judging from his name, but he •was among the first Americans to •enlist for the World war. On his 'j-eturn he was elected district court clerjc in Benton county (Vinton). The character of service he ren- idered is indicated by the fact that •without primary, opposition in any case •. and with opposition only once In a general election he; was subsequently reelected four times. the last six years : Fischer has -been republican county chairman, and the Benton county republican •convention in March unanimously endorsed him for auditor, of state. two judges in the district united in the following endorsement: "He vis a man of unusual character, hon- ••CBt, able, and efficient. He Is an efficient accountant;, a proven'execu- tlyijf," and it is £ur belief that he is exceptionally qualified tor the posi- seeks."

Long is Unthinkable for Auditor [Estherville Daily News.] Iowa republicans will hold a convention in July that may not be as colorful as either of the two national meetings but which may become fiery nevertheless.

Since learning that Doctor Gaston. has stopped giving us garters for Christmas, Mr, Dewel has instructed his Eva to see that we get a pair from Algona next Christmas. Knowing that we have them coming, we look forward to the future with increased confidence, and we believe that maybe even Gladys of Sioux City will give us a pair next Christmas. . Mr. Berfleld Finds Him self Short of Umbrellas. [Ad in la. Falls Citizen.] This is the rainiest season in 40 years and I didn't have sense enough to have some umbrellas in stock. Oh,.well, this.is an unsatisfactory world the best way you can figure it, by the time 'Garner gets his 10,000 post offices built we probably won't have money enough to buy a stamp and by the time prosperity returns so we can afford fried chicken we probably won't have no teeth.

Some of the farmers'-here reported a loss of about' ten bushels to, the acre of oats and small-grains. The corn leaves :were splintered-some, but it is thought not enough to do much damage to the crop. A steel tower windmill was blown over onto a. barn at the Matt Klrsch farm.

Long finished a few votes ahead of Karl Fischer, Long is not given much chance of getting the nomination at the convention. Fischer is the leading candidate, and, next to Long, he polled the highest vote, by great odds, of all the other candidates. Long is out of the question as a republican nominee, because of his record. 'It would never do for the republican state convention to nominate him after the disclosures of his office, even though a large per cent- age of voters at the primary did overlook the charges against him and his dismissal from office. Long never did. satisfactorily explain his conduct, and his answers consisted wholly in thrusting unfounded jabs at Governor Turner, former Qovernor Carroll, and. Attorney General John Fletcher. Long's only chance "was to poll 35 per cent at the primary, when he was certain to receive his share of the unthinking vote and when he could utilize the natural 'advantage of publicity given him while. In office, and the fact that he was better known than other candidates- Karl -Fischer, a capable, efficient, and well trained public official, is the likely nominee, and no doubt he will toe thrown the support of the Emmet county delegation to the state convention.
