Kour-mlnut men of Portland, open
ing their new campaign next Monday,
will give reply to the Insinuating query
of Prussian propagandists. "Is this a
capitalistic war?"' And the answer will
ha found In "who pay the Income tax?"
Th crusaders declare that they "will
hit one of the most Insidious lies of
th t;erman propagandist a swat be
tween the eyes."
Indicative of the facts and figures
that will be cited In conclusive proof
that It la not a capitalistic war. will
be those relating to tha income tax.
Tha larger the income, the larger the
tax. A net Income of tlOOu a year
pays but 2 per cent, or 120. Although
the man receiving 13.000 a year, re
ceives only 10 tlmea m much money
as tbe one getting $.'300. under the
new tax law he will pay 11 times as
much personal tax. In addition to the
extra taxes on his business. As for
the very rich, the Individual with income paya a tax of mora
than 11.000.000.

Everything points to a coming crisis

It is this tradition of conquest for gain

story is there than the sack of Rome
by the German mercenaries in the year
27. when, under General George von
Frundsbere;, who joined forces with
the recreant Constable Bourbon, of
France, and the Spaniards, these law
less Germans invaded the fertile plains
of Italy and took Rome by assault.
The most awful outrages were perpe
trated. Prelates were tortured after
being- paraded through the streets of
the Eternal City, dressed In their sa
cred pontificals and mounted on don
keys. Altars were defiled, sacred im
ages broken, vestments and services
and works of art taken from tho plun

sulted, broken and scattered. For nine

latter's conquest of the rest of Ger
many in 1866 is still exemplified by ona
quotation from Goethe. He said: 'The
Prussian was born a brute and civiliza

have seen how prophetic was this sen
tence. Skilled In chemistry, in science,
well educated, made rich by manufac
turing: and foreign commerce, the Prus
sians of today have shown themselves
far more bloody, far more cruel than
the German Lansquenet of the middle
aires who sold himself, his two-handed
sword, his military, experience and his
long; lance to tha highest bidder.
Tacitua tells of how the ancient Ger
mans when drawn up in battle array
used to sing a sort of war song to ter
rify their enemies..
It was Goethe incidentally who re
marked "Amerika, du hast es besser."
(America, you are better off.) The
poet, who died in 1832, foresaw, indeed,
the coming power of the free democ
