There in ihe way of camou TAX ON THE NEEDY AND ON NEEDY INSTITUTIONS The Budget taxes are underpins seeded revision, aud la certain of the revisions made there is a return to common sense in Ihe estimation ol what luxuries and what are neces- sities in the adjustment ot Ibe laies on the same. The real aim ot Ibe budget is to make those who can pay, by the imposition of luxury (axes this principle no one csn quarrel But to make the taxes appealing and tamakc them acceptable, (he principle should he clearly demonstrated l tllc'Hixcs are priraa fade on luxuries ia keeping with should be nothing (bge In them, ibtit is if the or luxury taxes ,is to have ils full and proper signification. Whatever may be ihe views held a to what luxuries, as determined by prices, meaD, there can be only cue view held when what is called a lux- ury tax belies its name by pressing on the individual who is not in a posi- lion to purchase luxuries. This dis- tinctly applies to the luxury taxes, as they are termed, applying to patent or proprietary medicines. U cannot be denied that Uicse medicines to a very great number .fiave a.n efficacy. This being so they constitute neces sides In the medicine cahiuet poor. They are remedies which in many instances have a value iu ful- filling what they claim to do. In the use they havo established their repu- tatfon, and, consequently, have earn- ed for themselves a certain faith ir them. In the proprietary medicines there are many which constitute food to infants. With this in mind the pro posed luxury tax o! thirty on these articles puts ou ttie objec tionable feature of being taies on tb food of the infants of the poor. When if becomes a question as to what ar luxuries and what at'e necessaries i is an insult lo the necessitous t class IhesD articles as luxuries by im posing luxury taxes on them. In tbe now taxes on medicines ivhlc contain more 'than forty per-cen i alcohol, a necessary such as median is placed in tho same class as the lux iiries ot perfume and champsgm Rren'the most ardent objector to a cohol, it he Is rational, cannot but coi cede that iu medicinal form alcohi has its uses. In this respect it is han )y necessary to draw (ho analogy of tl: destructive and the bcneficlent use ot the elements of fire aud water.'
