The whole country was opposed to the Wilson-Underwood law
and it was assumed naturally that a new law would be passed.
Even President Wilson attempted to.switc his party and to
kidnap the protective tariff as a Democratic policy, asserting
that the world war had created new conditions. And so it
really had too,"; and everybody, realizes today that America
with her short hours', high wages, and. curtailed production
would speedily fall victim to competing nations if allowed to
continue under the Wilson-Underwood law. Indeed, so rap

.The truth is that today every class and element in the

Kp'-mWr tS U October -1 Oregon
Senator Reed Smoot, who is the
economic expert of the senate
finance committee, is preparing a
program for taxation 'that has
but six chapters. He would draw
all tax revenues from Eix source
and his plan would make it a
comparatively simple thing for
an ordinary human being to make
out his tax statement. He would
!evy taxes on incomes, corpora
tton profits, tobacco, inheritances,
sales and imports. All these
might be easily assessed and col
lected without much trouble or
expense. Senator Smoot figures
that several thousand clerks and
officials could be spartd from the
service with the adoption of his
plan and at the same time th3
government would derive nearly
four billions in revenue with
much less friction and objection
than is now experienced. Of
course, the general tax of 3 per
cent on manufacturers' sales
would furnish the heavy item of
revenue, but this would be reas
onably fair and would be easy to
assess and collect. It would be
spread over the whole nation
and, while the consumer would
pay it. he would not have the
fact offensively paraded In front
of his beak. We will never have
a tax. we like and our idea of a
just one is one that is paid by
the other' fellow; but Senator
Smoot Jis a practical authority
on tax problems and may be sa re
ly listened to with attention and

fection or purposes of investiga
tion, have visited the far-flu 115
cemeteries la France, in Belgium
and in England where the Ameri
can heroes sleep their last sleep

The commission, however, looks
beyond the fugitive present. It
proposes a plan whereby the
tasteful appearance now present
ed by the American cemeteries
abroad shall be preserved for all
time. It desires to secure
grounds of sufficient size to pro
vide an appropriate space for each
grave, to erect uniform 'head
stones of marble high enough to
give the grass full sway and to
plant trees to cover each entire
burial area. The trees are to be
the great feature. They are not
only to be planted around the
cemetery, but are also to border
the roads leading to it from the
nearest town or village. Trees
indigenous to the United States ;
that will also grow abroad will
be .selected. The maple is al
ready in use for the Canadians
and the eucalyptus for the Aus
tralians. Provision is also made
