THE TOHACCO REBATE.
What la It Kxtent and What Arrangements
are Made for Its Allowunco
(low It ICfTttcta an Kxtonslvo Trade and Is
lleiiellctal to the ruhlle.
The Washington correspondent of the
Cincinnati Times-Star writes as follows:
The change of the tobacco tax on the 1st of
May and the preparations for rebate on un
broken packages Is occupying a great deal of
attention not alone from the head of the
Revenue Bureau here but from persons all
over the country. For how many manufac-
turers and dealers do you suppose Ihcc are
in this article in the country? Four hundred
thousand! Nearly a half million; or nearly
one to every 100 persons. The chanee in the
laws makes it necessary to send new stamps
lor every one 01 tnese ueaiers and In many
cases to other classes of internal revenue tax
pavers so that the other day K tons of
stamps were shipped by the Revenue depart
ment lor tne use 01 tnese people. You see
every cross road stoic in the countiy keeps
louaccu anu 01 course must pay us license
tax for that purpose. Everybody in the cities
has observed the frequency with which he en-
coumers cigar s'.oies and saloons. Well
eveiy one of these has to have its new license
stamps and so It is pretty easy to see where
the 40000 stamps go to. The act of Congress
which reduced Uie ta provided that dealers
who have on had unbroken packages ol to-
bacco on May 1st on which the full tax of 16
cents per pound has been paid may obtain a
rebate 01 tne amouut paid in excess ol the tax
under the law taking effect on that date.
Hence there will be an unwonted activity in
the tobacco shop on that day.
"What do you suppose this rebate will
amount too" 1 asked 01 an ollicial ol the Inter
nal Revenue. Bureau yesterday.
"I don't know" he answered "its pretty
nam iu csumaic. ti win run up into tne mil
lions of course."
There will be an immense number of
claims for rebate will there not?"
"Yes. I do not think however that half
tne ueaiers win put in any claim. You see
the rebate is only allowed in sums of $10 and
upward and only on unbroken packages.
Well most of the small dealers keep on hand
only about what they need to have ready to
sell from at once. The requirement that the
claim for rebate be not less than $10 will shut
out n great many for the rebate to amount lo
4I0 must been 125 pounds ol tobicco in un
broken packages or 20 boxes ol cigars.
"vvnen will this rebate be paid!"
"That we cannot say. Congress directed
its payment but did not provide the funds
with which to pay it hence we cannot
do; so until the next Congress meets and
does the work that the last one failed to per-
"Meantime we will go on receiving examin
ing and passing upon the claims nnd when
tnn lunds come on we will be all ready to send
out the checks.'
In Antediluvian Time's In the Dark and
The world has exercised more conscien
tlousness in matters of religious faith that it is
being credited with. There is no proof and
in the absence of such we should not accept
everything as matter of fact that either
single individual or an assembly of persons
got up any mythological tradition for the pur-
pose to defraud their fellow-men or their de
scendants. As science advances and explains
any wonderful phenomenon and draws them
from the realm of ignorance into that of en-
lightenment and knowledge so follows skep
ticism and doubt side by side with it whil
the faith of the past appears more and more as
ridiculous or as a pretty fable only fit for
poetical illuminations and is only treated as
such then comes the time when imagination
is relieved from the bonds of responsibility
and as such is full of self-exaggerated esteem
and treats matter that was till then a revered
tradition as a fine but childish fable. How
ever the myths that we inherited in the day
of youthful ignorance may have and represent
a grain of truth in the general conglomeration
of matters and things and should not b
despised. Man began in his intel
lectual childhood to observe certain
phenomena and their effects and would
express surprise at the cause and effects re
suiting therefrom he saw that everv dead oh
ject had two fleet companions a shadow and
a reiiccnon tne former dark and unseeming
the latter bright and full of apparent life: hi
did n"t recognize the pptical causes of these
phenomena and in nervous fear and ignor
ance gave each of them an individuality. He
called the first a Shadow and the latter -joul or
Psyche. Experience taught that both were
unitea wun eacn other yet dependent from
tl i. 1 ! .irrr- . T-i-.:...
..... uuuj um utauu uuicicill iciauvc posi-
tions to the same. A man died and hii
shadow was not seen any more but in nightly
visions the well known fotm of the departed
j form of the dark unseemlng shadow of
1 departed but that of the living chang
Psyche as it is reflected In clear water
appciucu irue a me 10 tne ureamer not in
: as 11 is reuecteu in clear water or 1
mirror. The soul of the deoarted conversed
with the dreamer notwithstanding that the
oreamer Knew wnile dreaming that the abode
of lip's soul was dead. The conclusion fnl.
low.d with irreslsUble force that the lifeless
body and the living dreamer was ol a more
ethereal najure than the body that lived in
spite of the dead matter. Thus originated
the belicr In spirits which is as old as belief
itself and older than positive religious belief.
Everything has pre-existed the spiritualists
need not be proud over a new discovery they
generally stand on the lowest grade of scepti-
cism they have shaken off everything except
the future life ol the soul. Thev can not pet
familiar with the fact that the soul is onlv an
attribute of the living mailer and with its dis
solution uisoives also. As long as a mineral
is subject to the process of chrystalization it
lives and goes the way like any living being
from birth to death for the day-fly It takes
but a few hours with minerals sometimes
less time. As soon as it gains its chrvstal
form it is dead: with its consumatlnn rlnf
Spiritualism had Its rjositive form In th
dark ages of ihe past. There were spirits as
angels demons dwarfs gnomes fairies
titans witches sorceresses nymphs fales
and geniusses. The reality of a belief in
spirits like it existed at the dawn of history
and even before with the Turanic races the
precursors 01 tne numan races on earth was
that the whole universe was inhabited by un-
told millions of spirits evety man woman
or child was possessed by two of these
spirits that the sun moon stars mountains
rivers the clouds winds rain heat and cold
had their spirits or demons and some of these
naa many 01 mem. 1 hus it happened that
the nations of the classical middle ages and
even in the latter davs. believed that
hen they had their n-n nnm
Ihey could take In the whole world earlh.air
ihe heavens seas and gulfs were inhabited by
myriads of spirits each of whom had his office
and occupation and influenced one or another
in some separate manner in their transactions.
Beyond these there were independent spirits
that were not appointed to any special purpose
as for instance the angels it Is difficult to
esiaupsn me time when the good angels sep-
arated themselves from the demons who again
without any perceptible notice separated into
the doubtful nnd malicious demons. The
Talmudlsts claim that the army of angels ex
pressed in ngures amounted to 1001340000-
000000 and the number of demons amounted
to tne number ol 7405826. These were
classified according to rank where the eye was
permitted to see these evil spirits no living
uciuK mum cxisi ine laimuuist ADai says:
" They are more numerous than we and they
are everywhere round about us." Rav-lluna
says : " bach of us has 1000 on his left and
10.000 on bis right side." Un to this il.iv thr.
pious Turk bows to his right and left after his
prayers to sauue the goctl and evil spirts
wnu are supposed io accompany him.
From all this can be seen hnui
Ihe belief in a spirit world around
and about us up to the highest regions is
something very old and that the spiritualists
of to-day are nothing ahead ' to those of the
past ages. The present condition of civiliza
tion is also the cause that the spirits of the
present age are more civilized than formerly
but the fundamental idea of spiritualism is the
same to-day as it was thousands of veare .inn.
There arc only good angels that influence the
i.iiuii ui uiiiii me evu one is represented
without Psyche or Soul and does not exist or
live after death. This is his punishment. But
the man gives up his soul nfter this life and it
nas a graded ascent to heaven. Space the
airless void and everything else round about
us is filled with angels just as the anti-delu-
vian people nad thought of it.
Spiritualismis the last inheritance from Ihe
times of ignorance and sunerstition and who-
