This District States His Position Legislation In Replying their inquity by sales taxes which Secretary Mellon advocated so ar dently and tried so bard to get passed during the last Congress, t .- ! "Next in importance is reduction on personal incomes, ' but .the r trouble with Secretary Mellon is lie wants to help the large income taxpayer ..out of all proportion to the reduction giv en the small income taxpayer. But the proponents of the Mellon plan say that "we cannot have both tax re duction and the soldiers' bonus". "Why not? It is true that there is the most highly organized propagan da against the soldiers' bonus I have ever known; the tariff lobby could hot hold it a light, for not only the tariff barons are here, t but Wall Street' and allied interests, many of which have a long time ago learned that an excessively high tariff helps none but a certain class of the special interests, but they too are interested in killing the bonus. This anti-soldier bonus organization is highly financed and most persistent, and is designedly misrepresenting me iacis. "The total amount required for the soldiers' bonus will probably not ex ceed two billion dollars. Anyone can easily figure this out. JJhere were something like five million men con nected with the armed forces in this country durine the World War. The ; average length of service was seven 'im?ni!' - y tftes? an average , i " U?fA ow month, the average to i 1)6 ?"d f8 wou4 1350.

The announcement Sunday that the Corporation Commission has granted an increased power rate for the Southern Power Company will mean great thing for the development of our State. The plan calls for an im mediate construction program of hydro-electric and steam power plant development.

The Moun tain Island plant will develop 80,000 horsepower. The probably cost of the Rhodhiss plant, it is understood, Will DO. aDOUt 930,000,000. The plant at Duncan, S.

The tax bill will not reach the senate before the last of February r March 1st, but when it does, the senate will be free to tack the bonus on to the tax bill as a rider, it mat ters not whether or not a bonus bill is under consideration in the house. And there are Democrats in Senate who say they favor this course of amending the tax bill with the bonus so as to prevent a veto of the bonus. It is now believed, it will take con gress all the winter to find its way through the maze of figures and con tradictory statements of the treas ury department and of other high au thorities concerning the tax bill and the bonus. No one can be found whe knows definitely at what point of re duction in the surtaxes capital wiH cease to seek tax exemption securi ties. Senator Couzens has disputed Secretary Mellon's figures and has challenged him to a public discussiosi Ion the subject. j Then too there is a fog of discus sion about the constitutionality of taxing tax exempt securities. Repre sentative Frear of Wisconsin wants the 16th amendment to the constitu tion tested on this subject by the Supreme Court. Other spokesmen in congress say the test has already been made-and -that incomes from state and municipal securities can not be taxed by the Federal government without further amending the constitution-.
