How was the figure of $1,800,000,000 arrived atV The answer is simple. When the Secretary of the Treasury came to estimate the additional war expenses for the year 1017 IS, he calculated that they would ami unit to some of which $3,000,000,000 was to be allotted to the allies, and tUflO. 000,000 was to be utilized for the domestic purposes. Thinking that It would be a fair proposition to divide this latter sura between loans and taxes, he concluded that the amount to be raised by taxes was $l,SO0,O00.

T ' N A .'. .1 bn Is B Pale Faced Women Take Phosphates to Make Rosy Cheeks and eautiful Forms. Men Need Phosphates to Make Strong, J. ja There are two extreme theories, each of which may be dismissed with scant ourtesy. The one Is that all war ex penditure should be defrayed by loai. and the other is that all war expend! tures should le defrayed by taxec Each theory is untenable. It Is indeed true that the burden the war should be borne by the present rather than the futire j;cneratios; but this does nut mean that they should be borne by this year's taxation. Meeting all war expenses by taxation makes the taxpayers in one or two years bear the burden of benefits that ought to be distributed at least over decade within the same genera t'on. In the second place, when expenditures approach the gigantic si:m af present-dapulwarfare, the ley would require more than the total surpltM of sodal in omo. Were this al wlutely necessary, the eitsuing har-oin the economic life of the community would have to be endured. Uut where the disasters are so great aisi at the same time so unnecessary, tbe policy may be declared 1m practicable. Secretary McAdoo had the right and highly commendable courage In deciding that a substantial portion, at least, of the revenues should be derived from taxation. But when fce hit upon the plan of per cent., that Is, of raising of all do mestic war expenditures by taxes, the question arises whether he did not too far. The relatlye proportion of loans be taxes Is after all a purely busineaa proposition. Not to rely to a large extent on loans at the outset of a war b a mtetake. disadvantages of Excessive Taxes. The disadvantages of ex essive taxes t the outset of the war are as follow: 1. I'xcessive taxes on consumptten ill ause popular resentment. y tax-tcil- y e tax-onl- y 30-."- o one-hal- f In considering the ai;jortioiroient et tbe extraordinary Lunh of hUM hi .mtntitiiewac vtaaes aatfalo efJeetffo ate dauaiteU etaW h A: How Taxes Should Be Apportioned. (1) Tbe bateau of taxes must be apreael as far as possible over t'.e whole community so us to tmiic ea.-ldiridual to share in the sacritices to bj ability to pay and according to bis share in the Government. (2) Taxes on consumption, which a. e necessarily borne by the community at large, should be aopOBli as far as on articles of rather than on those of necessity. (3) Excises should be lmiosed as far as possible upon commodities in the ha'v's of the l'. ml consumer rather lliuu uo6u the ui tides which serve pri- uiarily as raw material for further production. (4) Taxes upon business should be imposed as far as possible upon net earnings rather than upon gross receipts or capital invested. (5) Taxes upon Income which wHt necessarily be severe should be both differentiated and graduated. That is. thi.'re should be a distinction between earned and unearned incomes Q.:d there should be a higher rate upon the larger incomes. It is essential, however, not to make the income rate so excessive as to lead to evasion, administrative difficulties, or to the more fundamental objections which have been urged above. (til The excess profits which are due to the war constitute the most obvious and reasonable source of revenue during wau times. But the prin lple upon taxes are laid which these must be equitable In theory and easily calculable In practice. The Proposed Income Tax. The additional Income tax as passed by the Hon-- e runs up to a rate of 00 per cent. This Is a sum unheard of in the history of civilized society. It must be reii embered that It was only after tbe first year of the war that Great Britain increased her Income tax to the maximum of 34 per cent., and that even now in the fourth year ef the war the income tax does net exceed 42'-pcent. It could easily be shown that a tax with rates on moderate Incomes sub stantially less than In Great Britain and on the larger incomes about as alga, would yield only sllghtiy less than the $o32.000,ooO originally estimated In the House bill. It Is to be hoped that the Senate will reduce the total rate on tbe highest in conies to 34 per cent, or at most to 40 per ccit, and that at the same time it will reduce the rate on the smaller In comes derived from personal or profes sionnl earnings. If t! e war continues we sha'l have to deron! more and more upon the income tax. By imposing excessive rates now we are not only endangering the future, but are inviting oil manner of Oinieultiea which even Great Britain has keen able to escape. Conclusion. The House bill contains other fundamental defects which may be summed np as follows : (1) It pursues an erroneous principle In imposing ret reactive taxes. (ft It selects an BBJnat and unwork tax .tfile criterion for the 111 Mbl of (Si It proceeds to an 'e',':; in the in .ome tax.

Take Great Britain as an example Outing the first year of the war she :ncreased taxes ouly slightly. In ordei f keep Industries going at top notch During the second year she raised bj aew taxes only 0 per cent, of her war xpenditures. During the third year he levied by additional taxes (oyer r .ud above the level) only dlghtly more than 17 per cent, of her var expeuses. If we should attempt to do as mach in the first year of the war as Great Britain did In tbe third year It would suffice to raise by taxation $1,250,000,-tPO- . If, In eafer to be absolutely on 4he safe side, It seemed advisable to Increase the earn to $1,500,000,000, this should, in ear opinion, be the inet ' ! l e The fundamental lines on which the House bill should be modified are sum med up herewith: (1) The amount of new taxation should be limited to $1.2r0.000.000-- O! at the outset to $1,500,000,000. To d more than this would be as unwise a it is unnecessary. To do even be to do more than has eve '?cn done by any civilized Cover-i;cnin time of stress. (2) The excess-profitax based aja i smiiid system ought to yiel-.- aboi a3tvooajooa (3t The income-taschedule ought P ' a r.-- ' lowering of the rate !! in panww incomes below SK.0-0- , with au analogous lowering of th rates on the higher incomes, so as no 'o exceed 31 per cent.
