NORTH CAROLIN NEWS OF 1 -Interior of tlie famous Krup Identify belongings after recent flr? against tax legislation proposed In V GOVERNOR MAY CALL SOLCNS TOGETHER AGAIN Chief Executive Wants Ship Line Bill Passed By Maxwell Gorman Raleigh. Mar. ll?.?.Just a?? Raleigh wa settling down far a twoyear interim before another session of the General Assembly and many people hoping thai presumption! would not go astray, comes the semiofficial statement that the Governor intends to bring it back within the next six months. His Excellency thinks that :ht. developments in the investigation of the fed ibilt iv of his water tran >portation plan will have reached that point where the legislature will be convinced and will gladly enact tht? legislative nutehinery to put the scheme in practical motion. Let us hope the Governor will realize his wishes in the matter of piaciical demonstration, for all will ujr.ee that the basis of the water transportation is most needful and praisworthy, namely, cheaper carrying rate; for freight, which >? thi? instance would relieve North Carolina interests of the unjust discrimination (at least in large part) against us in favor of Virginia competing points that obtains and has long been practised by the railroads. As years of efforts bcfcrc the CnmmercJ Commission has failed to afford thc relief to which the State is entitled, it would appear that not only is the Governor's plan desirable, but practically is now the dernier resort if we are ever to obtain relief. Special rtBSaSgxtraordinary'" sessions of the legislature assembled by the Governor are limited to twenty days with pay. There is nothing to prevent the session front going beyond that period if the lawmakers are disposed to work without pay. even for exfnrftavS, but no such body has ever been known in this State to do that for longer than a day or two. Were it otherwise, the chances are that the reassembling of th? present legislature would probably result in a protracted session, during which the "solons" would start Of resume o lot of tinkering that the State and the welfare of the people and the Democratic party would best dispense with.

BS9 f' ' ????r ADVERTISE IN THE SCOUT "IT WILL MAKE YOU RICH" i North Carolina (1.60 A YEAR IN ADVANCE STATE COLLECTS LARGE SUM IN INCOME TAXES HJew Tax System Places Burden Where it Belongs-?Refuse to Repeal Personal Property By Maxwell Gorman Raloitrh. .Mar. 20.?The total col '- ctiona for the fiscal year 1922 as ollocted by the State Department >f Revenue, when completely tabuattd, will show $3,000,000 of in me ia\ . and then some. This means from a half mllion to three quarters of a million dollars more than was collected last year, the first year the new department functioned, when the total receipts were 52.414,000. Some largo businesses lave been granted thirty-day extensions, and the exact amount of collections wi'l not be known bclort cctions will not be known before uul a half million dollars already tabulated only one-fifth of the taxes have becn paid by individual citizens. about one-fourth by foreign ?-rj.orations ami the balance by State d >nie tie eorporations. The ast named collection will foot up nbout one and a half mlilion dollars. Fairnt Tax Syslrm Ever of AM Individual - it;;- r of N 'lth Car?lina will have paid all together less than one-fourth "f the total taxes. Flint L to say, less thin three-quarters of a million dollars are collected from all the private citizens of the State. No married man who had tin income la t year not exceeding 52.000, plus $200 f r each minor :hild or other person dependent up>n him for support, paid any income tax, or any other State tax. No single person whose income was not i? , xress of $1,000. plus the exemption noted above in the case of the married person, paid any income tax or any other State tax. The income tax system places the burden <-f taxation where it belongs. It takes it off the poor ami places it upon the boulders of those who make money and while they are making it. Hence, the corporations, domestic and foreign, are made to pay the bulk of State taxes. When we are reminded of the big dividends n*ost of these corporations have been announcing the past few weeks all over the country, no one with common sense ean fat! to recognize the justice of this system of taxation. And yet there have been political demagoges here and there disposed to buck the system, in the hope of raising an "issue" to hoist their personal political aspirations Ag well might one expect to lift himself by his own boot-traps. For. as Abo Lincoln immortalized the declaration you can't fool all the people all the time. And so. as the legislature refused to repeal the $300 personal property exemption law or to reduce it to $ 100. the poor man can next yeaf keep h?* *killet from the sheriff, and the tenant farmer will continue to own a bull calf (if the locomotive does not pet it> that will make glad John Smith's heart as it disports itself op the little grazing patch and bellow defiance at the tax gatherer. And all this without having- hurt in the least the John l>. Rockefellers or any of their investments. For which the people of North Carolina will give credit where it belongs, which is to say?in^ the great heart of the Democratic party, the one enduring and unchanging champion of the whole people and sympathizer of the under dog in the fight always. Shipments of North Carolina peaches have increased almost 1900 per cent in the last four years. In numbers, the shipments run from 77 cars in 1919 to 1452 cars in 1922. Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly wc pay for its counterfeit.?Ballou. A .. ? .
