Business : Generally, and Per
..sons Drawing Large Sal
aries' Will Be Required to
Pay Share of Taxation.
f Washington, July 27,The gist of
the excise tax bill pased by the sen
ate yesterday, lies In the provision that
very firm, person or copartnership In
Hie "United.- States' and its territories
shaHo pay Ifrinually TnTb treasury- a
special excise 'tax with respect to the
carrying on or aoTOg business of such
person, firm or copartnership equiva
lent to one per cent on the entire net
Incomepver and above $5000 from all
sources during each year.
The term "business" as employed tn
the bill is applied to embrace every
thing, above which .a person can , be en:
ployed and all activities which occupy
the time, attention and labor of persons
for a livelihood or profit. Thus persons
not in business for themselves,, but re
ceiving a, salary of above $5p9Q com
within the purpose of the act.
Ths bill was reported adversely by
the Republican senate committee on fi
nance, but the Democratic minority re
port commented on It as follows:,
This measure, if enacted into law;
will be a step in the direction of equal
izing national taxation, relieving to
some extent the consumers of the coun
try who are now required to bear the
whole burden and transferring a part
of that burden to those more able to
bear it
- t'lUe- unf ortunate-tht general In
come tax cannot be levied so as to reach
the unproductive wealth of the country,
but the fact that under the decision of
the supreme court in the income tax case
such wealth cannot be reached until the
constitution is amended, ought not to
be used as an argument agalnBt our pro
ceeding with the work of tax equaliza
tion a far as possible."

Two Gamblers' Trusts.
There are two "trusts" of gamblers,
known to a certain type of policeman as
'legitimate gamblers ' and those who are
'not dependable." The "legitimates"
are those who pay for protection and
do not "squeal" when the police occa
sionally raid them in order to square1
themselves with the heads of the de
partment These men are, paradoxical
as it may seem, honest in their deal
ings with the police. For instance, if
a crooked police official promises to
protect one of these gamblers for a cer
tain sum of money monthly, that police
official may be absolutely certain that
the money will be paid with regularity.
The "not dependable" are the men
who do not deal squarely with the po
lice who are paid to protect them. Un
til recently this class of gambler was
devoid of protection. Their efforts to
come under the wing of dishonest po
licemen and the natural enmity they
bore the more affluent protected gentry
are responsible for the last display of
Herman Rosenthal, formerly president
of the Hesper club, a notorious gambling
resort of the lower east side, was so
successful in his profession that he
aspired to bigger things. He trans
ferred his activities to West Forty-
fifth street, where some of the most -Im
portant gamblers operated establish
Xosenthal Zs "Sloughed."
Through underground channels the
story reached officials higher up that
certain members of the force were pro
tecting Rosenthal and his associates.
News of the leak reached Rosenthal and
then the men who were protecting him
began the squaring process.'
To divert suspicion and apparently to
disprove the stories of protection Ros
enthal's place wa repeatedly "sloughed.'
That Is, It was broken into and closed
up, He moved, and he was "sloughed"
again. So It went until the gambler
began to get nettled.
Then he did what no "legitimate" has
ever dona. He did what crooked police
men, old in the game, expected of his
class: the very thing which had always
prevented his ''trust" from getting pro
tection. He went to the district attcr
hey and other authorities with his story
of protection that no longer shielded.
He made public charges against Lieu
tenant Becker and alleged that Becker
had an Interest in his gambling busi
ness. The gambling situation was in a fu
rore. The only ones pleased were the
"legitimates," who would now receive
the patronage of men who could no
longer gamble in1 the smaller establish
ments. An Jronclad law of the gambling com
munity in New York is that no matter
how hard Jt pinches the victim must
not squeafcwhn the "squaring" shoe is
fitted to his foot.
The "Oorillas' Work.
There were therefore many men to
whose financial Interest It was' to have
Rosenthal tnifr of the way. Then came
into play tbe "gorillas," known to the
gamblers as "emergency allies. "
In New York today there are many
powerful . organizations of "gorillas"
who live by devious practices, and who
are always ready to "do" anyone if the
price Is paid. The gamblers are con
tinually in touch with the leaders of
these bands, and they know exactly
Where thejr can reach them tl any min
ute. One of the 'bands, the Investigation of
the authorities indicates, was called up
on by enemies of Rosenthal to get him
out of the way. It was not to be "beat
ing up" this time; It was to be grim
death; and the men behind the scheme
picked their "gorillas" with care. They
did their work and did It well, from the
gamblers' point of view, and they will
be paid their price for it. If they qtiar-

Through the underworld today there
passed a new story of the killing of
Rosenthal, a story which, though nearly
600 policemen have 'been working on
the ' care, .had not reached the ears of
the authorities. It is said that Rosen
thal was offered $5000 to "forget" his
promise to take evidence against the
gambling, police graft to District At- j
torney Whitman and to leave New Tork
for six months. He was so mad at -the
police department that he refused the
$5000. Then an affidavit was taken
from Dora Gilbert, Rosenthal's first
wife, describing the past life of .the
gambler and laying bare a secret which,
had it become public, would have com
pelled him to leave New York.
Woman Beslgged.
When the Gilbert woman cam . to
stgn the affidavit, however, she cut out
some of the most damaging statements,
and the men who were after Rosenthal,
seeing that neither the offer of $6000
nor the woman's story would drive the
gambler from the, city, killed him.
Rosenthal was to have met a final de
cision on the $5000 offer. Once and for
aH he rejected it and was killed. This
is the story that the Ttnderloln believes
to be the true version of the killing of
the notorious gambler.
