EVERYONE MUST HELP PAY
COST OF WAR
Bringing the enormus war
cost home to everybody in this,
country will soon begjji- to be
realized, although the great war
machine that is being built up
for service at home and abroad
will not get into full operation'
until about next September, seys
the Roseburg Review. It will
take three or four months to
mobilize, drill and equip a big;
army of 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 j
men. It will also take about
as long to begin turning out a
sufficient number of new ships 1
for their transportation to Eu-
rope, and thereafter keep this
army recruited and fully sup
plied with munitions, food, cloth
To help to meet the enormous .
expense for all these things the I
new revenue bill now under con !
sideration in uongress proposes
tlie most extensive line of tax
ation ever faced by the Ameri
can people. Among other things ,
it provides for doubling the nor
mal income tax rates with re
ruction of exemptions and in
creasees of surtaxes ongreat in
comes; absolute elimination of
all articles on the tariff free list
with the imposition of a min
imum duty of 10 per cent and,
a horizontal increase of 10 per
cent on all now taxible articles,
together with increases of taxes
on internal revenue and new j
taxes which reach to the remote ,
departments of business and j
household life. These new rev !
enues are proposed to make up
the year's income of $1,800,000,
Increases on postage rate3
include newspapers, which it is
proposed to charge on the par
cel post zone system. Publish
ers who are hurrying to Wash
ington and some of those who
conferred with the ways and
means committee members said
that such a line of taxation as
is proposed upon them practic
ally will force many out of bus
iness. Mailing charges for
papers of average circulation, it
was said, would be increased
many thousands of dollars year
ly. In executive session the House
ways and means committee ad
ded a provision to put a tax of
1 cent a pound on coffee and 2
cents a pound on tea in the
hands of roasters and importer?
The section is drawn so as not
to tax the stock in the hands of
retailers and is expected to pro
duce about $5,000,000 revenue.
One draft of the bill proposed
to impose a tax of 5 per cent on
receipts from advertising, but
as finally prepared for the House
this tax was made so as not tn
apply to newspapers and period
icals. The new taxes include levies
on life and firo insurance, on
household electric bills, tele
phone bills, railroad tickets, ad
mission to amusements, club
due's, automobiles, pleasure
boats, and, practically everything
that enters Into the life of a fam
ily. In an effort to spread the
taxation over the business life
as well as the social life of the
nation, now taxes arc proposed
on corporations, excess profits
and other elements of commerco
Most of the revenue would
come from these taxes: On In
comes, normal rate of 4 per cent
for individuals, with exemptions
on $2,000 for married persona
and $1000 for unmarried, and
graduated super-taxes on In
comes of more than $5000; G
per cent on corporations; in
creased taxes to be effective
I from January 1, 1917. On ex
cess profits, 10 per cent. On
inheritances, new taxes on a
graduated scale running from
1-2 to 15 per cent, present in
heritance tax to remain. On
imports all existing tariff duties
raised 10 per cent and 10 per
cent duty imposed on articles
now admitted free.
Minor taxes include: Increase
of letter mail from 2 to 3 cents
.an ounce, of postal cards from
1 to 2 cents and of newspaper
rates by a zone system. Liquor
and tobacco taxes practically
doubled. Levies by stamp tax
es or other means on life insur
ance policies, pipe lines, electric
power, telephone and 'telegraph
messages, theater, club dues, or
manufacture of automobiles
cosmetics, proprietary medicines
musical instruments, jewelry,
moving picture films, chewing
gum and pleasure boats.
