The Addition Taxes. Our City Councils have appropriated 3,500,000 dollars to pay for soldiers drafted. It is not re- garded as legal, and very likely there will be no money advanced by the capitalists. The Mayor and Supervisors have already appropriated two millions of dollars. The Comptroller is actino- with them, and there will be no difficulty in getting the money. Ours is a rich city, and we can afford to pay taxes. We have several kinds. The old city tax is one; the county tax is another; the State tax is another; and now we have the United States tax. If we go on, our taxes will be very heavy eventually. Property, however, will stand it. It does not seem fair, though, to pay a tax (as we shall have to do) for these millions raised to save men from going to the war.
