Abstract

To the Editor:  —Under the Harrison act we paid the required $1 license. Nine months later we are informed that Congress has increased the tax to $3 per annum and that we remit to the collector of internal revenues $1.50 for the first half of 1919. What puzzles me, and I suppose a number of other men, is what became of our tax money previously paid, and why were we not credited with the difference? It is not the amount but the principle of the thing we do not like. I suppose it is like the army game. You do what you are told and ask no questions.
