As a successful business man,
Secretary o f the Treasury Mellon
knew that to sell a manufactured
product, the price had to be one the
public could pay.
He applied the
same theory to taxes and the Amer
ican people are now having an ob
ject lesson in the science o f taxa
tion under the Mellon plan. By en
couraging the rich man as well as
the poor man to invest his money
in productive enterprise subject to
a reasonable tax rate, instead o f in
vesting it in tax-exempt bonds to
escape a confiscatory tax rate, the
federal treasury has been swelled
by amounts which not even treas
ury officials estimated could be se
cured under the new procedure.
Lower taxes have released hundreds
of millions o f dollars which have
been put to work to earn more
money. Immediately new taxable
income has resulted.
Every person in the United States
has felt the beneficial effect o f this
policy. It should be conclusive evi
dence to municipal and state taxing
bodies that the best way to build up
local communities and secure addi
tional tax revenue, is to increase
the volume o f tax returns by low
rates which encourage new money
to do a larger volume o f business,
thereby increasing the taxable as
sets. This is much preferable to
increasing the tax rate on a dimin
ishing volume o f taxable property.
States which are now proposing
new or drastic taxation measures or
undertakings which tend to discour
age or drive capital to other local
ities, can profit greatly by the ex
perience o f the federal government
under the Mellon administration.
The fifty-one armored cars in
New York used for transporting cash
to and from banks, are each in

every day in the week in a shooting
gallery. One o f the men remains in
the car with a machine gun covering
the others as they carry the money.
