A LYING PAPER.
cratic newspaper, whirls the bloody
shirt tbnsly :
"The concerted effort of the South to
fasten an income tax on the government
had its motive in Southern resentment
against national pensions for Northern
soldiers who put down Southern rebels.
The South is where those soldiers won
their pensions. The North is where the
THTOOertv ia which an income tax would
reach. The scheme to tax the section
which furnished the beneficiaries of pa
triotism was agreeable to tiie section
against which those benehciaries con
tended. The North took it out in pen
sions. The South would retaliate on
property. The South had few or no fed
eral pensioners. The North had nearly
all; but the South had little or no prop
erty subject to income tax, while the
North had much. The chance to get
even, or more than even, was attractive.
It was improved by making the exemp
tion rate just high enough to let the
South effectually out." The editorial is
headed, "Appomattox Kevenged and
Tho Tirnnklvn F.ale makes an asser
tion that it knows to be false, and one
that it has manufactured maliciously for
the purpose ot bolstering up a cause that
it cannot defend with argument. The
income tax is demanded by the people of
the North as well as those of the South,
and it is demanded by that class of
whom soldiers an- made. It is demanded
by the great mass of common people,
who pay enormously more than their
proportion of the taxes in order that the
class who do not bear arms in time of
war may be exempted from their fair
proportion of the tax. It is demanded
that this tax be imposed in order that
the burthen may be eqnalized, and that
persons instead of paying a per capita
tax will pay according to their ability to
pay, and will put up the sinews of war
necessary to carry on the government in
proportion to the benefits derived from
the government. ' " -
Rockefeller has $100,000,000 and he is
protected in its possession and enjoy
ment. : By whom? Byf the common
people of the United States, by the
middle classes who pay as much for hav
ing $5000 worth of property protected as
Mr. Rockefeller does for having $100,
000,000 protected. And again during
the war an income tax was imposed and
Bubmitted toby therich. Why?JBecause
they preferred giving up two per cent, of
their incomes to civine the whole
amount op to pay the debt the nation
would have if the South won. Then it
was a war measure. As soon as the war
was over and the danger was passed,
theee same tax dodgers set up the cry
that now the war was over there was no
necessity to suffer this inquisitorial tax
longer, and the congress of the United
States, false to its trust, relieved wealth
of its share of taxation and turned a war
debt of $2,500,000,000 over to the common
people to pay. The war was over, but
the debt was left and the necessity -for
the . tax was not over. , Incomes that
were piled up from the speculation ' of
scarpers, on me necessities ui me soiuier
at the front, were exempted and 'the
DUluier Willi wna jaiu m .iiuijc n ui L u
fifty cents on the dollar, and ' made so
worthless by the speculators, were asked
to stretch their patriotism still further
tion of the debt, but also that of those
who had grown rich by plundering
them. It was a venal congress that fell
down at the demand of the plutocrats
and betrayed the people. '- - -
. John Sherman was reasonably honest
then. He defended the income tax, and
answering a taunt of Casserly, Cali
fornia's senator, he said. "The income
tax is a just tax ; it is the most just and
equitable tax ever placed upon the
statutes of this or any other country."
John's income was not so large then and
his conscience was more tender. He is
not talking that way now. - ; .' :
The income tax has come to say, and
to grow, and those whose vast wealth is
ased to corrupt legislation and purchase
courts, may yec nod that it bad been
better to have paid .the taxes on their
incomes, than to have found, that an in
dignant people had left them no incomes
to be taxed. The degenerate Romans
- burned Rienzi for trying to tax them
and the republic fell, France had her
privileged classes in '92, hut not In '94
and the tax dodgers of New. York may
profit by contemplating these examples.
It is not the North, neither ia it the
South that demands an income tax, it is
the demand of the great common people
of this great common wealth, and a de
mand that it will be well for those who
have incomes to heed.
The wedding of Hon. George Nathan
iel Curzon, M. F. and Miss Mary Leiter,
was celebrated at Washington City,
Monday. Mr. Curzon is a titled Eng
lishman and said to be a clever gentle
man. Judged by other marriages of the
kind, however, it is fair to presume that
before five years have passed Mrs. Cur
zon will regret her wedding and heartily
wished that she had remained at home,
and married instead a plain American
gentleman named Cur-Smith.
