THE PRINCIPLE'that no one should be taxed without the
right to say how his taxes should be spent, is the underlying
principle of universal suffrage. Todav it is recognized that t
even' citizen tavs taxes of one sort or another. In countries
such as eaiti where indirect taxation is the i-ule rather than
the exception, everyone pays taxes.. the food we eat, the
clothes we wear, the tobacco we smoke, even the things we
produce for the benefit of others outside the country are
taxed in one way or another. E N E
THE RIGHT to vote, therefore, is the inalienable right of;
everyone capable of exercising it. The method of judging who OSEI NAI)AI. u (. )itrillr
is capable of exercising this right is now largely accepted in O, I N, C, ,
all civilized countries. Accepted as we ll i ns that thins right -. ,
carries with it certain responsibilities. IJ

The Becks Of Cap-Haitien

When German born Kuno Beck arrived in Cap lHaitian 40-

he never realized that one day he would be responsible for Le
Cap's beautiful ((Beck's Hotel.

possessed only one Maxwell and a Ford. The owner of the
Maxwell had a lovely sister named Vera Teuchler Dupuy and
