OliEGOXIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
In r ton. Nov. IS. Although the login-
oerry juice Industry is but a small part
of the fruit-Juice Industry of the United
States, and Is small In comparison with
the grape-juice Industry, yet the brunt
of the work of trying, to prevent a de
structive Increase In the Internal rev
enue tax on irult Juices has fallen upon
the Representatives of the Pacific
Northwest.
Lntil a few days ago. H. S. Gile. of
erajem. Or, was the only person directly
interested In fruit production who had
appeared in Washington to protest
against the Imposition of a 20 per cent
tax on all kinds of unfermented fruit
Juices.
H. S. Gile Compiles Brief.
Those Interested In the grape Juice
industry In the Eastern states. Darticii
larly New York. Ohio and Pennsylvania,
wmcn are Dig producers, have acknowl
edged that their Industry is threat
ened as seriously as the loganberry in
dustry. They say. however, that they
nave not had time to present facts be
fore the financial committee to show
the Injury that threatens them. Mr.
:ile, therefore, has complied a brief
for the grape Juice Industry an in
dustry that is. in a large measure, the
rival or that In which he is concerned.
With the signing of the armistice
and the announcement that the revenue
bill can be somewhat reduced, there Is
a better prospect of obtaining a re
auction in me proposed internal reve
nue tax on fruit Juices, but this re
duction will not be secured unless
those who are Interested present a vig
orous protest.
mder the present Internal revenue
Jaw all soft drinks are taxed 1 cent
a gallon. Fruit Juices are cla
onder soft drinka by a decision of the
Commissioner of Internal revenue.
Fralt Jalee Bears Bardem.
The new internal revenue biil pro
poses to Impose a tax of 20 per cent
upon the selling value, which would
make the tax fall much more heavily
upon producers of fruit Juices, as soft
drinks are produced more cheaply, than
upon the producers of carbonated wa
ter. In most portions of the Internal reve
nue bill where Increases upon the exist
ing rates have been made, the tax has
been doubled, but the tax on fruit
Juices, if chanced from 1 cent a gallon
to a tax of 20 per cent, would be ap
proximately 32 times greater than the
existing tax. Figures compiled by Mr.
tlil show that the tax' would be
heavier on the containers than on the
grape Juice itself. Out of a total tax
of 97 cents that would be paid on a
case of grape juice, r.2 cents would be
on the value of the bottles, cases and
transportation and only 4a cents on the
contents.
Valae Basis Held rajas.
Since practically all soft drinks are
sold by the glass, and quantity govern
more than the character of the drink
Itself, both the loganberry juice and
crape juice producers contend that the
tax should be levied on a gallon basis
rather than on a value basis. Neither
could the producers absorb a tax of
20 per cent on the value of the product.
Including both the Juice and the con
tainers, when they must get their profit
out of the Juice alone.
Apple Iadastry Setters.
Mr. Gile has just filed an additional
brief showing the effect of the in
creased tax on apple juice. In this he
points out that the apple Juice industry
furnishes a market for from 40 to 69
per cent of the apple growers" crop,
the portion below the grade of fruit
packed as fancy. The new apple in
dustry already furnishes a market for
from 5000 to 7000 tons of apples an
Dually, the return from which would
be entirely lost to the apple growers.
If the Internal revenue tax should be
placed so high that the manufacturer
could not pay the tax himself and
could not make the consumer pay it.
It is probable that the interests of
Eastern states will have more bearing
on the final action of Congress than
will the interests of the Pacific North
west, due to the fact that Ohio. New
Tork and Pennsylvania have more rep
resentatlves in Congress than have the
states of Oregon and Washington.
If Washington and Oregon alone
were affected. It is quite likely that
It would be Impossible to sufficiently
Impress upon members of Congress the
seriousness of the injury that will be
suffered by the Industry If the in
creased tax be imposed.
