Won bl the Jeffersonian Societ
Last Niqht.
l'he Jeffersonian Society last night
defeated the Adelphi in the final cup
debate series. The question dis-
cussed was, "Granting it to be con-
stitutional, is a federal graduated in-
come tax desirable."'The judges
were Profs. B. A. Hinsdale, and E.E
F. Johnson, Dr. Copeland, Rev.
Henry Tatlock, and the Hon. A. J.
Sawyer. Tihey decided unanimous-
ly in favor of the negative.
Before the debate resolutions were
read thanking the Detroit alumni for;
the interest shown and for the lov-
ing cup presented for the debating
As each speaker finished he was
greeted with vociferous partisan ap-
plause. The aflimative of the ques-
tion was upheld by the Adelphi and
the negative by the Jeffersonian.
G. W. Maxey opened the discus-
sion by outlining the line of proof to
be followed in establishing the pro-.
position. The affirmative undertook
to establish firsts, a present deficit of
federal revenues and the ability of
the income tax to relieve it, second,
the unfairness of the present system
of taxation with income tax as a
remedy, and third, the power of the
income tax to reach private and cor-
porate property at present not taxed.
Mr. Maxey discussed the growing
deficits of the last few years and
asserted that at present the customs
and excises were taxed to the highest
productive point and that conse-
quently another method of meeting
the deficit must be found. The in.
come tax was urged for its prodsuc-
tiveness, referring to the good re-
sults of England's income tax.
A. M. Cloud opened the negative
by calling attention to the statement
of the question and insisting on the
forcing the issue on the words gradu-
ated tax. The advantages claimed
by the affimative helonged to a pro-
portionate and not graduated tax.
The supreme court ruling was cited
to show that stocks would not be
reached as an increase in their values
was considered by that court as
speculative gain and not income.
Though somewhat over-eager, he
clearly laid down the burden of
proof. An increase in excise was
suggested to meet the present deficit.
Mr. Holland followed with a gen-
eral charge of the ijustice and in-
equality of the present system off
taxation. He replied to administra-
tive difficulties which were never
raised by his opponents. His reason-
lng was pretty close, but he failed to
join issue on question under dis-
Mr. Cole declared this extra ordi-
nary method as being unnecessary and
uncalled for. The tax proposed
would not reach corporations because
At was incomplete. It was unjust
because it taxed on the rate of the
corporate income and not on the
small dividened of the individual
Mr. Utley closed for the affirma-
tive. He endeavored to show that

that the exemption made the tax
graduated. Thce tax was just because
it was necessary. The federal in-
come tax alone could reach the bond-
holders who now escape taxation en-
tirely. Mr. Utley is very direct and'
forcible acd made the strongest
speech for the affirmative.
'lhe negative was closed by Mr.
Dmicildson. He argued that the ex-
ecmption did not make a graduated
tax. The income tax would tend to
drive capital from investment in
large corporations, because the small
stockholder must pay tax at the rate
prescribed for the capitalization of
the whole corporation. This is neces-
sary because the tax must be levied
on the corporation to avoid evasion.
Mr. Donaldson made the most effec-
tive speech of all the debaters.
The Jeffersonians won by superior
rebuttal, and by confining themselves
to the issue. The cup given by the
Detroit alumni will now be in the
possession of the Jeffersonians until
the next annual debate.
E. W. Pendleton, at the close of
the debate, made an appropriate ad-
dress, which was very warmly re-

The Last Game and Series Ours.
Special to the nAccY:-
Michigan won game today amid
great excitement. Fielding of both
teams excellent; errors not costly.
McCollum pitched onother fine game
for Illinois. Lehr in for first five in-
nings. Relieved then by Guy Mil-
ler, as things looked rather serious.
The feature of the game was Snow's
batting-3 hits, and his catches of
two difficult flies.
The circumstances in sixth were:
Wernham was hit with the ball.
Johnson started a long fly to right,
which looked good for three bases,
but Snow, after a desperate run, gath-
ered it in. Lotz flew out to McGin-
nis, Fulton then made a hit on which
Wernham scored. Adsit followed
with another single and stole second.
Things now looked serious and
Miller took Lehr's place. Wilder,
who yesterday made a three-base hit,
was up, and a long sigh of relief
went up from the Michigan camp
when Miller struck himout and ende
the inning.
