P-Craw ford to state that he is not a candidate fore the primaries for the nomina tion for the Legislature. BUSINESS PARAGRAPHS. TIic Income Tax. Some people are under the impression that the new income tax is retroactive This is a mistake. The income tax clause oi' the tariff bill states that from and after January 1, 1S!)5, until January 1, 1U00, there shall be assessed, levied collected aiid paid annually a tax of per cent on the amount of income over $4,000, and that this tax shall be assess ed by the commissioner of internal rev enue and collected and paid upon the gains, profits p. ml income for the year ending olst. next preceeding the time of levying collecting- and paying such tax. The law cannot go into etlect un til January 1, 1S!)5, and no income tax will be paid until December 31, 1395. This is the status of the tax and it is ill no sense retroactive. People with big incomes will not have to pay the new tax for nearly a year and a half. In that time they will recognize the jus tice and equity of the tax. Atlanta Constitution.
