The Philadelphia Inquirer refers to
n reported Incident, said to have oc
curred In Windsor, Canada :
"The incident reported to have
taken place at Windsor, Canada, on
Friday, shows an extreme sensitive

which does not augur well for the

States flag which aroused tho wrath
of the Windsor loyalists.
"The conduct of these 'loyalists'
over so luslgnlllcaut a matter was
something extraordinary. They tele
graphed to the proper government
olllclal, asking that the people of
Windsor ho ordered to remove tho
decorations and United States Hags
from their houses. The foolish Minis
ter sent the order as requested and tho
Eisex County Fusiliers were ordered
out to euforco the order. The only
importaut consequence of the order
was that the members of tho Grand
Army who were billeted in Windsor
crossed over to tho American side and
money which otherwise would have
been spent in Canada was distributed
among citizens of the United States.
"The people of this country who
are accustomed to run up the Hags of
Great Britain, and, for that matter, the
Hags of all couutrles, out of courtesy
to foreign visitors, will, of course, only
laugh at tho ludicrous exhibition of
loyalty to Great Britain and Jealousy
of the United States displayed by tho
Canadian Minister. But there Is one
serious aspect to the exhibition. It
shows how afraid "loyal" Canadians
are of giving any chance for tho en
couragement of Canadian sympathy
with tho United States."

ONE WAY TO PAY TAXES,

Tho ordinary citizen thinks if he pays

Cuxe has, however, shown that itis possiblo
to make tsx-paying a dividond-paying
procedure and tho manner in which th s
heretofore impossible feat Is performed will
ehallengo tho admiration of tho world of
finance and the still larger world of tax
payers. Tho court last week decided that
Coxe liros. & Co. were entitled to work
out their taxes the same as tho ordinary
citizen and the supervisor accordingly gavo
p emission to the company to start work.
Coxo llros. & Co. have placed h party of
men at work. They are nearly all new ar

Thi n the township is charged four cents f r
the use of each tool used by tho men. As
ihe rate allowed a day to a laborer working
ut his taxes is 1.35 per day it will bo seen
that Coxe Bros. & Co. are in about 41 cents
which will amount to considerable whin
in number of mon is taken into account.
The lawmakers of thisslato novor intondoJ.
Unit taxes should be paid by slavo labor.
Coxe Hnb. & Co. are, of curse, tho latgost
t ix payors in tho township, but is is ox
tretnely difllcultto soo wherein they justify
themselves in asking $1.35 a day for tho
labor of a man to whom they only pay 00
ills a day, but as employers havo a roa-
son for every solflsh act on tholr own pare
while ever ready to accuso tho working-
mrn of soeking to rob them, so Mr, Coxo
