A most brutal murder was enacted
in the Brazos bottoms 011 the Ander-
son place, on the night of November
29. Buck Smith, a negro, literally
chopped the head of his consort to
pieces. He had threatened to kill her
on the evening before the murder, and
being missing next morning, search
was instituted. The negro man was
taken in hand by other negroes, and
made a full confession, telling where

in in a boat out Into the river, and
there had sunk the body by tying a
pick to her neck. The body was found
after some search, terribly mutilated
about the head, the skull being split
in several places and the brains oozing
out. Smith had struck her three times
with the blade of the ax and once
with the back. Coroner Norton, of
Calvert, held the inquest, which
brought out the above.
Smith was carried to Calvert, and
the jail was guarded Thursday night
to protect him from the infuriated ne-
groes of this vicinity.

BA8I8 OF AN INCOME TAX.
In most European states, says the
Fort Worth Gazette, the income
tax is depended upon to supply a
large part of the necessary expenses
of government. In monarchioal
England, Italy, and Germany, it is
one of the largest sources of revenue.
If in such governments, which are
based (now that the fabrio of "di-
vine rights" is overthrown) on the
assurance of the aristocratic ant
-capitalistic class, such a tax shoulc
be resorted to, it cannot be claimec
that in this country it is oppressive
There is no exemption of incomes,
-either, except the very small. The
proposition made in the United
States is to exempt from tax all in-
comes under $4000 or $5000, which
would leave only the very rich to be
taxed, for it would need the posses-
sion of at least $100,000 to safely
earn $5000. An official report of our
consul at Chemnity, Saxony, says
that all incomes in excess of 300
marks ($71.40) are taxed. In Prus-
sia the exemptions are under 900
marks (214.20.) The tax falls heav-
iest on the middle classes. Incomes
of $785 pay a tax of $18, and in-
comes of $1499 pay $45. The Con-
servatives of Germany propose to
abolish the tax on the middle classes
and leave only the very low rates.
It is proposed to cover the losses
from reductions by an increase on
incomes above $2k85. Last year the
taxes on incomes above this figure
yielded 36 per cent of the total in-
come tax. It must be taken into ac-
count that an income in Germany of
$2285 is equivalent to about $4000
in the United States, so that the im-
position of a tax on inoomes above
$4000 will make the system about
the same as that in Germany.
