l ACCIDENT AT I
x- The Soma, the, largest seml-dingi-'

racks building at Norfolk February
21 and exploded killing 38 men. Wit
nesses at the scene said that in less
than an hour the ship was 'burning

What a Sales Tax Is
This scheme is a sales tax. vo
you know what kind of a tax that n
tf so f all the taxes ever invented by
human iniquity ,the poor man s wx
supreme, me poorer a mn
side of a public poor house the more
of this tax he has to pay in propor
tion to what he consumes. In other
words the more inferior an, article of
goods is the greater the tax is on 5t
in proportion. A dollar in a pair of
poor shoes, is worth far less than a
dollar in a lair Osgood .shoes. A
coIa ta-r aa a er-jumotionl tax pure
and simple and John D. Rockefeller
or Andrew W. Mellon would pay for
less of this tax in proportion to what
he consumed, than would an average
tenant farmer in North, Carolina,.
The leaders of the Republican, par
tly have in-eatlv desired to replace thft
high , income surtax and the excess
profit tax with "this consumption sale
tn tiA thev would have succeeded
but for the firm opposition of r'-e
farm Woe in Congress. The excess
profit tax was eliminated and
high surtax was 'reduced 15"per can,
but the sales tax could muster only
25 votes, in the Senate against - the
combined opposition of the Depaoerat
ic and Republican farm Senator of
the West , . ..

Where Fat Salaries Abound.

are unknown.' They are In themhjp-

In' the fihipping. Board or in one. of
the Regional banks of the ' Federal
Reserve. The Republicans declare
they are going to put the Shipping
Board out of business Just as soon as
the government ships can be sold.
There, are over 600 employees In the
Shipping Board whose salaries range
all the way from x35,ooo to - f3,uw
yearly. Some-', of the.' commoner
clerks who are paid only' $1,200 In
other departments get 15,000. Some
lawyers fwho have . for years . been
without clients are paid $10,000 a
year In the Shipping board. - The Fed

ployee. One of the chief tasks of the
Federal Reserve 4s the absorption of
