BACHELORS MUST FLEE TO WOODS OR PAY YEARLY TAX. Tacoma, Wash. —Milton, a town on the Tacoma-Seattle Interurban Railroad, four miles from Tacoma, has gone on record with a tax of $5 per annum upon all bachelors living in that place. The town boasts of a large number of single men, and members of the City Council figure that if they get these bachelors to bring in wives it will nearly double the population. The tax will also stimulate the city finances, according to Mayor Claude Weeks, who signed the ordinance. When the Town Council passed the ordinance one of its members, who was a bachelor, made a vigorous protest, but he was quickly squelched. The Council did not even allow him a vote on the score of his personal interest in the issue at stake. Many of the single men of the place declare they will retaliate by changing their residence to other parts.
