Men must do something foolish
and the host that you ran pray for
is that the “something" selected
will not he as bad as it might be.
You learn that the Chinese smoke

American brands, producing now
36,000,000,000,000 against 66.000.
000,000 produced in the United
States. You say to yourself,
“cigarets are not very nourishing,
perhaps, hut while they are smok
ing cigarets our Chinese brothers
are not smoking opium.”
If the United States, with 110,
000,000 population, produces 66,
000,000,000 cigarets a year, how
many will China soon produce and
use with 500,000,000 population?
Mr. Percival S. Hill probably fig
ures that out instead of counting
sheep jumping over a fence when
he wants to make himself go to
“To him that hath shall be
given.” Soldiers marched away,
leaving their jobs and the chance
to make any of the war’s easy
money.” Those that had a great
deal of money already, made a
great deal more, thanks to the sol
diers that made operations safe.
New York state needs $45,000,
000 to pay a small bonus to New
York’s soldiers. The gentlemen
that got rich in the war and then
opposed any bonus, now buy up
the $45,000,000 bonds and, because
they are state bonds, escape all in
come tax on them.
Thus to him that hath comes
profit, “going and coming.”
Going away, the soldiers made
capital safe, and coming back, the
soldiers provide bonds, behind
which big capital protects itself
from the income tax collector.
That learned and gallant young
senator, Medill McCormick, of
Illinois, opposes Secretary Mellon’s
plan to cut taxes. That isn’t going
to help Senator McCormick in the
coming election. A 25 per cent
minimum income tax if it were
really collected would supply more
revenue than the most willing con
gressional squanderers could scat
Secretary Mellon says the tax
plan outlined by him would supply
all the money needed. And he
knows more about that than any
body else, including Senator Mc
Cormffck, who in many respects is
an intelligent young man.
