Ou May 23, 1917, the House o f Uep-
r<> entatlves passed an n' t “ to provide
revenue to defray w ar expenses and
for other purposes.”
In the original
bill as presented by the Committee o f
Wo . i and Mean . the additional reve
nuc to be derived was estimated at $1,-
810,120,000. The amendment to the in-
cou • lux, which was tucked on to the
bill during the ill eusslon In the House,
w. i expected to yield unothcr $40,000,-
01» or $50,000,000.
In discussing the House bill, tw o

How was the figure o f $1,800,000,000
arrived nt ? The answer Is simple. When
the Secretary o f the Treasury tam e to
estimate the additional v r expenses
for (lie year 1917 is, he calculated that
they would arm nut to some $0.000,-
ooo.ouo, o f which $3 <<00,000,000 was to

Thinking that ft
would Is* n fair prop 4tlon to divide
this luttcr sum between loans and
taxes, he concluded that the nniount
to Is* raised by taxes was $1.800,000,-
There are tw o extrem e theories, euch
o f width may lx* dlsmls ed with scant
courtesy. The one l.i that u 11' w ar ex-
pemlHurts should be defrayed by loans,
an I the other Is that uII w ar expendi
tures should lie defrayed by taxes.
Each theory Is untenable.
It Is Indeed true that the burdens of
the war should Is* l>ortie by the pres
ent rather than the future generation;
but this does not mean that they should
lie borne by tills year’s taxation.
Meeting ull w ar expenses by taxation
makes the taxpayers In one or two
years Lear the burden o f benefits that
ought to be distributed at least over a
decade within the same generation.
Ill the second place, when expendi
tures npproni li the gigantic sums o f
present-day warfare, the tax-only pol-
ley would require more than the total
surplus o f social income. W ere this

The Proposed Income Tax.
The additional income tax as passed
by the House runs up to a rate o f 00
per cent. T h is Is a sum unheard o f in
the history o f civilized society. It must ,

and on the larger income's about ns

If the war continues we shall have to

The House bill contains other funda
