The question is asked : Could those
who would be required to pay the higher
rate per cent , under the graduated
cumulative plan of taxation shift the
excess upon the consumer and thereby
defeat the purpose of the tax ?
For the benefit of those who may not
understand what is the purpose , mainly ,
of having the taxes to increase in rate
with increase in the values of proper
ties , and how they may be made to
apply under all conditions and .circum
stances , T will first explain in regard to
To start with , the principle purpose
of having the ordinary taxes levied upon
the plan proposed , is to prevent the
monopolization of lands , mines , lines of
manufactures and so forth , by parties
intent upon controlling prices solely in
their own interests.
The modus operandi of the tax can be
shown as follows :
Case 1. To prevent the monoplization
of any industry by the concentration
into one enormous and over-sized estab
lishment the entire capital employed in
that class of industry :
Upon all values of $1,000 or loss the lowest
rate of taxation shall bo churned and col-
Upon nil values exceeding Jl.OOO and not
exceed ing $10,000 , the fate of taxation charged
and collected shall he : For the llrst $1,000
above the original $1,000 , onu and one-tenth
times the lowest rate.
For the second $1,000 above the original
$1.000 , one and onc-lUtli times the lowest
rate ; and there shall be added one-tenth to
the rate of taxation for each additional $1,000
of value until the rate of taxation has be-
conic double that of the lowest rate and the
original capital has equalled $10,000.
Upon values exceeding $10,000 and not ex
ceeding $10j,000 , the rate of taxation charged
and collected shall be : For the llrst $10,000
above the original $10,000 , one and one-tenth
times the rate assessed against $10,000. For
the second $10,000 above the original $10,000 ,
one and one-liH.Ii times the rate assessed
against $10,000 , and a like increase- rates
with Increase of values shall continue for all
sums not exceeding $100,000.
Upon all values exceeding $100,000 the rate
of taxation shall be : For the lirbt $100,000
above the original $1" " 0,000 , one and one-
tenth times the rate assessed against $100,000 ,
and a like increase of rates with increase of
values shall continue without limit.
Fractional values remaining after deduct
ing the total of the units of increase shall be
assessed at the rates corresponding to the
naxt higher units of increase.
It will be observed that this plan of
taxation would effect the prohibition of
monopolies , if it did at all , through be
ing a discourager in general to enlarge
ments beyond whut constitutes adequateness -
quateness or completeness. Why it
would be better , to say nothing of the
benefits of the absence of monopolies ,
if all industries were only so large as is
necessary to completeness and no larger ,
I will not stop here to answer ( it not '
being the subject under discussion ) any i
further than to say that a system of i
small and thickly distributed wholes
would be far better for the people in
general than a system of vast and wide
ly scattered wholes. *
Case 2. To prevent consolidating , by
purchase , pool or trust agreement , the
entirety of any particular line or class
of establishments :
If any lot or parcel of taxable prop
erty , separate and distinct from others , be
one of two or more of the same class owned
or controlled by the same party , linn , cor
poration or association , the rate of taxation
upon the value of said property shall be the
rate'wbich-Avould be'imposed upon property
'possessed of the united value of these prop
Case 3. To make the above provisions
effective , as against outsiders , if they
are the enactments of an individual
If any dealer in agricultural , mining ,
- manufacturing or other products , shall
handle , buy or sell the products of trusts
and monopolies when those of other than
i trusts and monopolies can be obtained for
mercantile purposes , the yearly average
' amount of such products kept in stock shall
be assumed to be a part of the property of
the trusts and monopolies from whence the
- said products were obtained , and shall be
- subjected to a rate of taxation equal to wh t
4 would be Imposed upon a property pos
sessed of the united value of the properties
included in the said trusts or monopolies.
Now let us come to the main ques
tion. Can the excess proportions of this
tax be shifted ? If. they can , the plan of
taxation would.be worthless asanin-
strumentforthe prevention of monopoly ;
if they can not , it wouldtprove to be an
efficient and wholesome"remedy. . vBy
the use of some ideal , and then real , in :
stances , I shall endeavor to demonstrate
a negative to this question.
Here are some ideal instances :
1) John Plowman owns 160 acres of
farm land worth § 2,000 ; taxation at one
and one-tenth cents , on the dollar ,
§ 22.50. By livingupon" his land and
cultivating1 it himself and managing it
to the best advantage he supports him
self and pays his taxes with compara
tive ease , . ,
The Scottish Landown & Skinum
Syndicate own 20,000 acres. of land
equally as valuable per acre as John
Plowman's , upon which they pay but
little taxes and which they are holding
for a rise. The Legislature possesses
a cumulative tax law and this syndicate
find their taxation to be over $60 per
quarter section. Is there any way
under the sun by which they can retain
their large acreage and crav * out of
paying the excess taxation from their
own pockets ? ' * Can they shift it onto the
renting class when that class will be
able to obtain all the land they want
'from the owners of smaller and less
heavily taxed tracts ? Could they hope
to make up for this extra taxation by an
attempt with hired help to produce more
cheaply than do'those who own moderate
sized farms and do their own work. If
not , I have gained my point so far as
this tax relates to the prevention of land
2. The flouring mill owners organize
a , trust for'the purpose of lowering the
price of wheat and elevating the price
of flour ; capital , § 50,000,000 ; taxation
under the graduated-cumulative system
of taxation. 10 to 50 cents on the dollar ,
according as the graduation is moderate
or rapid. A few mill owners in Kansas
and Missouri refuse to be controlled by
the trust and draw out. Under a
straight rate of taxation what would be
the result ? The rebellious mill ovners
would be rapidly and completely
ruined. How would it.be if Kansas , and
3Iissouri each had a graduated-cumn-
lative tax law ? The rebellious or anti
trust mill owners , by virttie of the low-
er taxation , would undersell and draw
the trade from the trust mill men to
such an extent as to force them into
bankruptcy if they persisted in main
taining their trust. There would be no
shifting of the excess tax.
55. All the railroads of Kansas , except
one of the main lines , are consolidated
under a single management and up go
their rates , llesult , supposing there
was a graduated-cumulative tax law ,
stme as that whiqli would happen to
I the flouring mill trust.The attempt to
' charge the excess taxation upon the
public would drive the patronage to the
low-taxed road , and bankruptcy would
, be threatened to the trust. The effect
upon the railroads of such a tax would
be no different from the effect upon
other ehisses of industry.
Now look at the actual instances :
1. The State banks were driven out
of existence by a 10 per cent , tax iipon
their circulation in favor of the National
2. Foreign manufacturers are forced
to give way to" home manufacturers by
a tariff which has the same effect upon
the foreigner that the excess of the
graduated-cumulative tax would have
upon the over-enlarger or consolidatqr.
A tax can be shifted when it is laid
with equal force upon all establishments
of a class , big or little , mischevious of
beneficial. An attempt has been made
to discourage the manufacturer of
liquor by a heavy tax upon the article.
No visible effect has been produced be
cause all pay the same rate per gallon.
A tax to be felt as a discourager in one
direction and an encourager in another
must be made to discriminate against
one in favor of another in the samel nc of
bnsincus. A lighter tax upon the Illinois
than upon the Kentucky distilleries
would soon i-esult in the obliteration of
the latter. So a lighter tax upon inde
pendent liquor or other manufacturing
establishments than that placed tipon
combination establishments will cause
the combinations to succumb. A cumu
lative tax will drive out the over
growths and combination because it
discriminates against those malforma
tions of capital and can not be made
not to do so by any shifting of the ex
cess tax by those against whom it is
aimed. W. V. MAKSIIAT.U

DON'T BE FOOLED.
.Shylock , Free Trade and J'rotection Shy-
Don't be fooled by protegtion or free
trade humbugology. In protected
America as in free trade England , Shylock -
lock exacts his pound of flesh and gets it.
In protected America Shylock says to
those who work for him : "I pay you ,
as wage workers , ten cents more than
you would be paid for the same work in
England ; but I charge you , as consum-
ers , twenty cents more for the product
of your labor , for I must get here the
same rate of profit as I get on the other
side of the Atlantic. "
In free trade England Shylock says :
"I pay you , as wage workers , ten cents
less than you would be paid for the
same work in America , but I charge
you , as consumers , the same rate of
profit as I get in that country. "
And so , no matter what prices and
wages may be , computed in money , the
earnings of the wage worker , computed
in the necessaries of life , are finally the !
same under free trade and under pro
Nay , under both the share of labor in
its product is constantly growing less. i
For instance : A hijrh protective tariff
is passed by the United States Congress.
Shylock says to his English work people
ple : "You must work for less wages
and thus enable me , without reducing
my rate of profits , to sell in America
the products of your labor in spite of
the American tariff. "
Then he says to his American' Tiands : "
"I have reduced the rate of wages on
the other side of the water and am
flooding this country with the products
of British pauper labor , 'right over my
own tariff dam. This tariff is not high
enough and your wages must be reduced
also , that I may get here the rate of
profit that I get in EHgland. "
Strikes follow , here , there and else
where ; but in the end the rate of wages
goes down , everywhere , and Shylock ,
therefore , not only keeps up but in
creases his rate of profit.
And so we see that American protec
tion serves to reduce English wages ,
while English free trade serves to re
duce American wages ; all for the bene
fit of the same Shylock the capitalist
class taken as one international entity.
Is a Regular Decrease in the Per Cent. Paul
to Mechanics Prosperity ?
In 1850 the wages paid to mechanics
and in operatives' manufacturing indus
tries represented 23 per cent , of the
value of the finished products of those
industries. Since then the share - of
labor in that product has steadily de
creased. It was 20 per cent , in I860 ; 18
per cent , in 1870 , and 17 per cent , in
1880. The census of 1S90 , however dis
honest , will unquestionably show a.
And people wonder at the general
dissatisfaction and restlessness of labor
while the country is so prosperous !
Well , if by the word " country" is
meant the capitalist class , we grant that
the prosperity of the United States is
stupendous ; for , in spite of waste in
goo'd living and luxury of every sort , |
that class is accumulating wealth at the
rate of three thousand million dollars a
year , or nine million dollars per day.
But , if this collective expression ,
"country , " is intended to embrace the
men , women and even children , who ,
by their hard labor , create those three ' '
thousand million dollars of accumulate ? ! j
wealth , besides producing all that is I
consximed or wasted , and yet live in '
wretchedness , then we say speak not to j
us of prosperity. i
It is plain , however , that the so-called 1
partnership of capital and labor em
not long endure on its present basis of j
distribution. The time lias-come for
the toilers also to be prosperous. Liglrt.

WATERED STOCK ,
How to Kqucczu the IVuterOut A Plan
That Would Work.
Two excellent articles recently ap
peared in the Hutchinson News , one en
titled "What Does It Mean ! " the other
entitled "Let out the Water , " both hav
ing for their object to attract attention
to the people by railroad companies
tlirough the medium of "watered stock. "
We copy a paragraph from the first
article , as follows :
The onii thing above nil others to-day thut
Is oppressing our farmers all over this laud
IH watered railroad stock. It In estimated
that there is $100,000,000 of "water" In the Kan
sas railroad Htoc-k ; that Is just the mileage In
KairwaH alone upon which they try to earn a
dividend of six percent. , amounting annually
to nearly teu millions of dollars , wrung out
of the people , not one cent of which Is honest
or should be collected. Is there any reason
farmers In Kansas are hard up ? And now
Mr. Gould boldly announces that thu present
rates must be advanced beyond the present
high figure even , in order that the stock
holders who have this "water" can secure
dividends. Happily , Mr. Gould can buy up
all the railroads , but the people are learning
bow to make the rates , and they will do It.
And this from the second article :
In determining what u "reasonable and
Just rate" should be the question of what the
railroad cost should cut no llgure. The only
question that should properly enter is "what
Is the road worth ? " Xow , If the Santa Vo
road ( we refer to it because it is the oldest
Kansas road , the same principle Is true of
all the others ) can be built and equipped to
day for $30,000 per mile , her rates for trans
portation of freight and passengers should
be so adjusted that a reasonable dividend
would be paid on that Investment Instead of
on $73,000 per mile as reported to the Inter
state Commission by that road last spring.
The News is right. The Kansas
Farmer , years ago , taught that doctrine.
Now comes the question : How shall
we get the water out ? The easiest , the
quickest , the cheapest and the best way
to dispose of this "watered stock" busi
ness is to let it be done by the men who
made it and their creditors. How is
that to be done , you ask ? Why
this way it will require two methods :
First , let Government , State and
National , determine what is reasonable
compensation for the transportation of
persons and property , and this without
any reference to the cost of building ,
without reference to capitalization , with
out reference to indebtedness , either
bonds or stock , but with reference only
to what the work can be done for on
the basis of modern conditions , as the
News says , "what is the road worth ? "
Second , let the National Government
establish a system of Inter-State com
merce railways , beginning with say.
for example , a double-track frieght road
from a convenient point in the northern
part of North Dakota , extending in a
direct line southward through South
Dakota , Nebraska , Kansas and Texas ,
to a- deep water port on the gulf
of Mexico. Let the road be
built in sections , all progressing
at the same time , every day's
labor and every item of property
needed being paid for in cash out of the
public Treasury , so that when the road
is completed it will be paid for , it will
belong to the people the same as a com
mon highway , or a court house , and the
people would have the money as well as
the road. Then transportation "at
cost" would be reduced to practice , and
there would be no further trouble about
"watered stock. " Creditors of railroad
companies would finally get the roads
at just what they would sell for on the
open market. After that , the Government -
ment , acting as the agent of the people ,
having demonstrated what the actual
cost of transportation is , all roads man-
aged by corporations must come to that
standard , or they will go out of business
and their lands , covered as "right-of-
way , " will revert to the original owners
or their heirs. Won't that , dear News ,
squeeze the water out ? Kansas
Why There Should Be a Flexible Currency
What AVarehonses Will Save the Pro
In your editorial , you say , Brother
Hall shows that putting such a scheme
into effect would conflict with the or
ganic law of the Nation. Since Brother
i Hall's article was printed , decisions of
the Supreme Court have been looked up ,
and like bills have been declared consti
tutional. You say it is not practicable.
! Emerson said : "The good farmer saw
the possible farm. " The good farmer
is the practical man. The first railroad
was thought impracticable because a
cow might get in the way. Let our or
der forge ahead like the engine , and
leave the politician crippled in the ditch.
You ask : "Shall we have a flexible
volume of currency because we have a
variable supply of products ? The cur
rency ought to be flexible , because all
the agricultural crops of the country
mature in the fall , and a larger volume
of currency is needed to move it at that
time. This fall the cotton crop was
earlier than usual and had to be moved
with the grain crops of the North. This
drained Wall street , and money went to
I 80 per cent. It is estimated this cost the
i cotton farmers not less than § 100,000,000.
The hay crop is equal in value to the
cotton crop. Grain and hogs took a
tumble. If the sub-treasury had been
in operation , the farmers of the entire
country to-day would be § 300,000-
000 better off on this season's
crop. This shows to me that we
need a flexible currency , such as the
sub-treasury would give us. > Brother
Hall's calls are very extravagant. Let
us see. I have a barn with an iron roof
that cost S400. It will hold 2,500 bales
of cotton ; eight such buildings would
hold 61.000,000 worth. If the General
Government should charge only 50 cents
per bale storage , it would pay for
warehouses and running expenses the
first year , and she would have SS,000 in
Again , factories want protection
through a high tariff against the cheap
money of Europe. With a sub-treasury
they would buy the warehouse receipts
and order it shipped as needed , thus
carrying their raw material at one per
cent , instead of giving Wall street ISO.
Nearly all the business of the country
is done 011 credit. These ruinous rates
force the manufacturers into cobiua-
tions to rob our class , as these bankers
Will Brothers Chew and Hall be kind
enough to pount out a better way to get
money into circulation than the sub-
