The Vienna pajxr asks, "And is

Modifying the Income Tax.
From tbt S.F.TImtf.
A scheme is on foot looking toward
a modification of the income tax by
increasing tho taxes on whisky, tobac
co, licences and fermented liquors, and
providing for a levy of no more than
fifteen millions of dollars annually in
tho shape of income tax. Half of this
fifteen millions, or nearly half, it is pro
posed to raise by taxing tho interest
due on the national debt, deducting
five per cent. When the interest is
paid, and the remainder is to be obtain
ed by-taxing income derived from in
vestment in corporations, and from
the Interest paid on the bonds of thoso
corporations. Thero i no doubt that
tho incomo tax is ono of the most dis
agreeable forms of taxation, and it is al
so ono of tho most unequal iu its bear
ings, and tho most difficult to collect.
It is, moreover, as certainly established
as anything can Ik that it is a tax
which, from tho naturo of things, roust
bo almost entirely borne, not by the
rich and middle class and poor propor
tionally, but by tho middle class alone.
Tho very rich, with a few exceptions,
escape tho tax, and it is seldom that
oven thoso who pay it, pay in just pro
portion to their incomes. The multi
farious mades of investment, the var
ious shapes which capital and property
take, thu complications introduced by
temporary conditions, such as that of
lender and borrower, the impossibility
of ascertaining save by lengthy and la
borious investigation, the truo condi
tion of any man's affairs render it al
most impossiblo that tho law sbunld
bo carried out, or that the tax should
be collected, fully and fairly. It is, be
sides, a very serious objection to this
impost, that it involves that inquisi
tion into private matters which ia al
ways resented by free men, and which
is one of tho most odious features of
such a law. Whether a man bo pros
perous or tho reverse, ho ia sure to ob
ject to the interference of Government
in his business arrangements, and this
antipathy to examination is certainly
not lessened by tho practice, adopted
by certain journals, of publishing the
income returns. It may be affirmed as
a certainly that more time is consumed
in collecting this tax, proportionally
to the amount collected, than in any
other levy, and cortainly more ill feel
ing and discontent is engendered. And
wo believe that if the time and labor
now employed in collecting the income
tax were devoted to a stricter aaseas
ment of the revenue arising from the
whisky and tobacco taxes, tbn result
would be such an increavtj in the
amount! collected from thtee latter
taxes that the inline tax ooald be di

The Income tax can never be bat par
tlally collected, from the nature of Ha
provisions, and for these reasons any
scheme which looks to the abolitioa
ot the latter aad a stricter collectiea ol
tbe former, is likely to bestefit the
Government and the people alike.

Residents in the Great Bssia freowctv
tly speak ofelond bursts" very remar
kable sudden rain storms accompanied
by thunder and lightning which take
place in the smnrasT tinfr, anil which
seem, therefore, to have their origin in
the Gulf of Mexleo.
The rainy season of dioaloa, Dunuv
go, Sonora, and partly of Arixona,
takes place precisely at the height of
our dry season, and the storms come
invariably from the Gulf. Standing oa
the peninsula of Lower California, and
looking across the Gulf of California,
there ts frequently to be seen ia mid
summer a great wall of black rain aad
thunder cloud which has been heaped
and rolfed up by the counter cu.Tenta
of tho atmosphere, hanging for days, or
weeks, withont bciug able to makeaay
farther advance westward. This bin
coming from the Gulf of Mexico, drawa
northward into Arixona and Nevada;

flood as well make tho locality, if nar

with teams, wc are told, aro not
unircqucntty obliged to make a "run

their tools and belongings.
The peculiar feature of these "eload
