How to Have Income Tax It seems quite certain at this writing that the jiroposed Constitutional amend ment authorizing the Federal Gover ment to levy an income tax will fail, says the Saturday Evening Post. Ten states have rejected it. The negative of twelve will be fatal. This merely confirms the long-established opinion that to amend the Constitution is a matter of first-rate importance and nearly impossible. That intelligent and gen erally open-minded man, Governor Hughes, discovered in this simple pro posal a'deadly 'threat to'the palladium of our liberties shows what flocks of ob structive crotchets arise when anybody proposes to touch the Constitution. However, the Supreme Court the other day, upheld the Federal corpora tion tax. Obviously this'tax, so far as it goes is an income tax, being calcu lated and levied upon the net incomes of corporations. Under the astute guidance of President Taft, however, Congress called it an excise'tax —a tax that is, upon the j privilege of d...

Dining car service in Alaska —the old timers will hardly believe it. But the fact remains, however, that now you can get meals on trains while traveling into the interior of the far north. The Cop per River and Northwestern railway put the diner into service recently on the line just opened out of Cordova. Pas sengers returning from the territory pro nounce the innovation a big success. It is one of the sure indications that Alaska is going ahead at a rate that many persons on the "outside" do not appreciate.

WORtD CASH UNIT German Professor Declares "Gold Gram" Right Medium of Exchange Prof. William Ostwald, of Leipzig, the Nobel prize winner of 1909, aspires to be the modern Francis Bacon. He is not content with his world-wide repu tation as the first living German chem ist, but has made incursions into every field of intelectual activity —exact sci ence, philosophy, politics and sociology. His latest propaganda is the internation alization of the money system. The ever-narrowing world says Ostwald, can not manage much longer without a uni versal unit of values, and there is an easy way to attain it if only goverment will get wise to the fact. Ostwald claims for the proposal lor a world money is not only scientific but practicable. It can be introduced with out destroying the existing monetary standards, and it does not raise at the beginning the difficult problem of world-coinage. It is the confusion be tween money and coinage which has hitherto baffled all would-be innovators in this...
