Began With High Hopes nnd Ended

Harrlsburg, Pa., May 1. Flinn
Ism which began with such high
hopes and extravagant promises of
political reorganization one year
ago this month ended for all practi
cal purposes last week in a fizzlo
when it was announced, after organ
ization Republican leaders had open
ly defied Flinn, that tho Republican
Btnte convention would not be re
called as per tho Flinn threat of the
Flinn's essay at political leader
ship lasted somewhat longer than
the proverbial flash in a pan, but it
did not prove to bo of much greater
importance in spite of its full twelvo
months of existence. Tho finish, for
finish it was no matter liow much
longer the Flinn crowd elects to
carry on the bluff, was a trifle dis
appointing both to thoso immediate
ly concerned and to the man In the
street whose interest in politics in an
off year Is second to his interest
in baseball. After the way the erst
while boss performed at one state
and two national conventions and
during the campaign of last fall it
was natural to expect that something
spectacular would result no matter
whether he won or lost in his contest
with tho Senate leaders. What actu
ally happened went to the other ex
treme. It bordered on tho pathetic,
and it was not without some justifi
cation that one observer declared the
retreat reminded him of a yellow
canine retiring rapidly and with his
tail between his legs from a personal
encounter that was not to his lik
ing. State Chairman Wasson, who was
in at the finish, said after the open
session of the Senate Committee on
Elections at which Flinn's bluff was
called that ho could see no excuse
for the recall of the State conven
tion, but it is said here ODenly and
not denied that the real reason for
not carrying out the threat is that
Flinn and his lieutenants have the
very best of reasons to believe that
if that body were to be reconvened
control of it would be seized by the
organization leaders and a convert
iion roaa roller put to work In a
way that would make tho perform
ance or tne ponderous machine used
at the meeting last year seem trivial.
At least one influential Republican
newspaper has editorially dared tho
Washington party leaders to recall
the convention, but up to the pres

leaders nor thoir newspaper organs
have seen fit to take notice of this
One of tho things that is going to
hasten a closing up In the Remib-

the factions apart Is tho menace to
Pennsylvania industries in particular
and the prosperity of tho nation in

tho situation is sorious and already

the leading part being played by
Senator Penrose in defense of Amer
ican industry Is much appreciated.
Although his political interests wero
threatened by an attack from the
rear Penrose remained rlerlit in
Washington attending to his duties
as a representative of the great state
of Pennsylvania. There is little nrns-
pect that anything can be done to
prevent the passage of a tariff bill
that is acceptable to the more radical
Democratic tariff "reformers" hut

INCOME TAX INJUSTICES.
Thero are several provisions in the
income tax section of tho new tariff
bill that are puzzling salaried men
who are made subject to the pro
posed levy. Why exempt "the com
pensation of all officers and em
ployes of a stato or any political sub
division thereof?" If this is to ap
ply to present terms it may be justi
fied on tho ground that some con
stitutions, nossibly all. forbid the
aiminisning or compensation arter
appointment or election. That is
the reason tho "present President"
has been exempted and it also ex
plains exemption of "the judges of
the Supremo and inferior courts of
the United States now in office,'
but the language of the bill as to
stato officers and political subdivis
ions is ambiguous. Many such offi
cials aro paid handsome salaries and
they are just as well able to stand
a federal income tax as are men in
The stipulation that Income tax
shall be paid at its source contains
an obnoxious provision. The em
ploye receiving a salary large

tax that is, in excess" of $4,000 is
required to discloso to his employ
er, under oath, all othor sources of
income, whether they be his own.
his wife's or his family's. This Is in
order that tho government may col
lect a full tax. The plan puts the
employe at a disadvantage with his
employer and is likely to estop de
mand for Increaso of salary, how
ever just, if indeed it does not. In
tho case of Gradgrind, lead to re
duction. It is not just thus to force
disclosures that may work harm to
tho individual. Let him make his
return as to income from sources
other than his regular employment
to the revenue office, whero it be
comes a confidential matter and can
not bo used adversely. It Is impos
sible for a man to be drawing what,
to nis employer, appears to be an
ample salary, and to have an appre
ciable income otherwise, but never

hard pressed. Still human nature
is human naturo, and an employer
might take advantage of knowledge
gained under this net and either
shavo something off his salary or at
least roruso to put anything on, mer
ited or not.
Another Injustice is the taxing of
insurance surplus. Suppose a man's
nnnual premium bo ?200 and his
dividend ?40. Ho sonds tho com

?2 on that '?200 and tho company
