who Is las blind to justice as deaf to mercy as Incapable of human sympathy as you are She raised her voice and as she stood there denouncing the man of money her eyes flashing and her head thrown

to the White House Ill tell the presl dent what you are Marry your son thank you No thank you Exhausted by the vehemence of her passionate outburst Shirley hurried from the room leaving Ryder speech less staring at his son- CHAPTER 1 XVI Shirley reached her WHEN she broke down She threw herself upon a sofa and burst Into n fit of violent sobbing After all she was only a woman and the ordeal through which oho had passed The way to get rid of a cold whether be a bad cold or just a little one Is to get it out of your system through the bowels Nearly all Cough Cures especially those that contain opiates are constipating Kennedys Laxative Cough Syrup contains no opiates and acts gently on the bowels Pleasant to take Sold by all druggists would nave taxes tae strongest pow ers of endurance She had borno up courageously while there remained tho faintest chance that she might succeed In moving time financier to pity but now that all hopes In that direction were shattered and she herself had been ordered harshly from the house like any ordinary malefactor the reaction set In and she gave way freely to her long pentup anguish and dls tress Nothing now could save her father not even this Journey to Wash- Ington which she determined to take nevertheless for according to wha Stott had said the senate was to take a vote that very night She looked at the time 11 oclock She had told Mr Ryder that she wouldl leave his house at once but on reflec tion It was Impossible for a girl alone to seek a room at that hour It would be midnight before she could get he things packed No she would stay under this hated roof until morning and then take the first train to Washing ton There was still a chanco that the vote might bo delayed In which case she might yet succeed In winning over soma of the senators She began to gather her things together and was thus engaged when she heard a knock at her door Whos there she called out Its I replied a familiar voice Shirley went to the door and opening It found Jefferson on the threshold He made no attempt to enter nor did she Invite him In He looked tired and careworn lOOt course youre not going to night he asked anxiously My fa ther did not mean tonight No Jeff she said wearily not tonight Its a little too late I did not realize It Tomorrow morning early Ho seemed reassured and held out hishandGood night dearest Youre a bravo girl You made a splendid fight It didnt do much good she replied j In a disheartened listless way But It set him thinking rejoined Jefferson No one ever spoke to my father like that before It did him good Hes still marching up and down the library chewing the cud Noticing Shirleys tired face and her eyes with great black circles under neath he stopped short Now dont do any more packing to night he said Go to bed and In the morning Ill come up and help you Good night e Good night Jeff she smiled Ho went downstairs and after doing some more packing she went to bed But it was hours before she got to sleep and then she dreamed that she was In the senate chamber and that she saw Ryder suddenly rise and denounce himself before the astonished senators as a perjurer and traitor to his country while she returned to Mas sapequa with the glad news that her father was acquitted Meantime a solitary figure remained In the library pacing to and fro like a lost soul In purgatory Mrs Ryder had returned from the play and gone lo bed serenely oblivious of the drama In real life that had been enacted at nome The servants locked tho house for the night and still John Burkett Ryder walked the floor of his sanctum and late Into the small hours of the morning the watchman going his lone ly rounds saw n light In the library and the restless figure of his employer sharply silhouetted against the white blindsFor the first time In his life John Ryder realized that there was some thing In the world beyond self lIe had seen with his own eyes the sacri lice a daughter will make for the fa ther she loves and he asked himself what manner of a man that father could be to Inspire such devotion In his child He probed Into hIs own heart and conscience and reviewed his past career He bad been phenomenally successful but he had not been happy He had more money than be knew what to do with but the pleasures of the domestic circle which he saw oth er men enjoy had been denied to him Was he himself to blame Had his insensate craving for gold and power led him to neglect those other things In life which contribute more truly to mans happiness In other words was his life a mistake yes It was true what this girl chargedhe had been merciless and unscrupulous In his deal Ings with his fellow man It was true that hardly a dollar of his vast fortune had been honestly earned It was true that It had been wrung from the pea pIe by fraud and trickery He had for power yet now he had tast J It what a hollow Joy It was after The public hated and despised him Even his so called friends and business associates toadied to him merely because they feared him And this Judge this father he had porno cuted and ruinedwhat a better man and citizen he was How much more worthy of a childs love and of the estteem of the world J What had Judge Rossmore done after all to deserve the frightful punishment the amalgamated interests had caused him to suffer If he had blocked their game he had done only what his oath his duty commanded him to do Such n girl as Shirley Rossmoro could not have had any other kind ot- a lather Ah If he had had such a daughter he might have been a better I man if only to win his childs respect and affection John Ryder pondered long and deeply and the more ho ruminated the stronger the conviction grew upon him that the girl was right and he was wrong Suddenly ho look ed at his watch It was 1 oclock Roberts had told him that it would bean all night session and that a voto would probably not be taken until very late He unhooked the telephone and calling central Halted for long dls tance and connection with Washington I hItB tered Shirleys room with her break fast and sbo found its occupant UI and dressed Why you havent been to bed miss exclaimed tho girl looking at the bed In the Inner room which scorned scarcely disturbed No Theresa Jt couldnt Bleep Hastily pouring out a cup of tea she added I must catch that 0 ocjock train to WashIngton I didnt finish packing until nearly 3 Can I do anything for you miss inquired the maid Shirley was as thetrest pf the household No answered Shirley there are only a few things to go in my suitcase Will you please havo a cab here In half an hour sheIsuddenly thought of something she enr velope which she had left lying on tho trayOh miss Mr Jorklns said to give you tills and master wanted to see you as soon as you had finished your break fastShirley tore open the envelope and took out the contents It was a check payable to her order for 5000 and signed John Burkett Ryder A deep flush covered tho girls taco as she saw the moneya flush of an noyance rather than of pleasure This man who had Insulted her who had wronged her father who had driven her from his home thought he could throw his gold at her and insolentl send her her pay as one settles haughtily with a servant discharged for Im pertinence She would have none of hi moneythe work she had done she would make him a present of She re placed the chock In the envelope an passed it back to Theresa Give this to Mr Ryder and tell him I cannot see him But Mr Ryder said Insisted the girlPlease deliver my message as I give It commanded Shirley with authority I cannot see Mr Ryder The maid withdrew but she had barely closed tho door when It was opened again and Mrs Ryder rushed In without knocking She was all flue tered with excitement and in such a hurry that she had not even stopped to arrange her toilet My dear Miss Green she gasped whats this I heargoIng away sud denly without giving mo warning- I wasnt engaged by the month replied Shirley dryly I know dear I know I was think- Ing of myself Ive grown so used to you how shall I get on without you No one understands me the way you do Dear me The whole house Is upset Mr Ryder never went to bed at all last night Jefferson Is going awayi too forever he threatens If he hadnt come and woke me up to say goodby I should never have known you intend ed to leave us My boys going youre going every ones deserting me Mrs Ryder was not accustomed to such prolonged flights of oratory and she sank exhausted on a chair herI eyes filling with tears DIll they tell you who I amtln caughter of Judge Rossmore demanded Shirley It had been a shock to Mrs Ryder that morning when Jefferson burst into life mothers room before she was up and acquainted her with the events of the previous evening The news that the Miss Green whom she ha l grown to love was really the Miss Rossmore of whose relations with Jet ferson her husband stood in such dread was far from affecting th financiers wife as It had Ryder him self To the mothers simple and in genuous mind free from prejudice and ulterior motive the girls character was more Important than her name and certainly she could

A Tax Commission Has Just Made a Report That Ic of Interest- In This State Missouri has been laboring under a difficulty In its tax system nearly ex actly similar to that of Kentucky A tax commission has been at work in Missouri and In line with the tax com missions of other progressive states It has found no solution ot the difficulties of the situation short of a constitu tional amendment that will give the legislature greater liberty in dealing with the question but It also points out that such an amendment is chiefly desirable because It will lead to sepp ration of the sources of state revenue from the sources of county revenue The comments of the Missouri tax commission arM so pertinent to the situation In Kentucky that the follow ing extracts will be found of Interest We all agreed that the first step In any tax reform Is the separation of the sources of state and local revenue This change would not require the exemption of any class of property from taxation The proposed change may be effected by the adoption of a single constitutional amendment The general features of this sepa ration of the sources of state and local revenues may be briefly sum marized The state would discontinue the levy of a general property tax upon the real and personal property of the state leaving the assessment and collection of this tax to the coun ties and municipalities for local pur poses This would make a saving of the large expense Incident to the present dual system It would also dispense with the work of the State Board of Equalization connected with the attempted equalization of assess ments of real and personal property among the counties of the state The state would thereafter derive Its revenue through its Inherent general power of taxation upon general subjects of taxation as by licenses corporation taxes inspection fees and such other forms of taxation as the general assembly may determine The different rates of assessment in the different counties enforced by the different demands for local revenue would no longer produce inequality in taxation with reference to the tax The remedy proposed Is InstateII opinion the only effective Each community could fix its own rate of valuation as its local needs may require without subjecting its citizens to the injustice of being compelled to pay an undue share of state taxation There Is now a certain kind of home rule in taxation which consists in the varlatibn of the rates of assess ment upon property according to the local needs of the community some counties paying taxes on 70 or 80 per cent of tho real vAilue of property and others only 20 or 30 per cent The report of the Tax Commission of lflOi says It Is In the bounds of truth tosay that no two counties of the state have the same rule for the assessment of all classes of property and generally speaking there Is absolutely no unl fortuity as to the proportion of the cash value taken as a basis of the assessed value Some counties value real estate so far as our reports show as low as 30 per cent of Its selling price while others have a 90 per cent basis Some assess real estate at 3311 per cent and tangible personal property at CO per cent The commission concluded that there was an absolute want of equality in taxation This inequality can not be remedied by the State Board of Equaliza tion for the obvious reason that the high rate of assessment In certain counties including the city of St Louis Is enforced by the pressing de mand for revenue for local require ments The board can not raise the assessments of the counties which make a low valuation as that would be imposing an unnecessary burden upon those communities- We see no remedy for this existing Inequality and resulting injustice ex cept In the separation of the sources of state and local revenue Under the plan proposed the state would retain all of its inherent powers ot taxation except an to the general property tax upon real and personal property which would be assessed and collected by counties and cities for local purposes The state now levies a tax upon Insurance companies dramshops express companies sun dry corporations license and inspec tion taxes and a collateral inheritance tax What other forms of taxation may be adopted will be for the Gen eral Assembly In Its discretion to determine The system proposed re quires no change in the existing limitations upon the tax rates of the counties cities and school districts The change recommended requires no modification of the methods of as sessing tho property of railroads and other public service corporations by the State Board of Equalization That system is statutory and Its continu ance or modification is subject to the control of the General Assembly Should the present system be contin ued whereby the assessed valuation made by the state board is apportioned to the counties the General Assembly should continue tho present state tax upon such valuation and pro- vIde for Its

Generally Exposes the Falsity of the Former The theory of municipal ownership is that inunlclonl corporations can da for the public at cost the service now done by private corporations at r profit saving to the puhllc the amount of the profit in reduced charges- In the common practice of municipal ownership the city does for the public at increased expense but for a lower price what private corporations have been doing for a profit Usually not only the profit is absorbed in the in creased expense but a continual an nual deficiency Is covered up by in crease of the municipal debt and fail ure to provide out of earnings for de predation of plant By the time the plant first Installed Is worn out the city unless very rich and strong is npt to be at the cud of Its credit In many cases like that of the Philadelphia gas works a private corporation gets tho city plant for II song and makes money out of it faster than ever The fundamental Idea of It therefore is to take the money of taxpayers to render service to non taxpayers for less than the service costs Editorial in Minneapolis Trib une Stomach troubles Heart and Kidney ailments can be quickly corrected with a prescription

Clarkof the National Clvlo Federation Com mission on Municipal Ownership Show Why American Institutions Should Not Be Abandoned at the Demand of Socialists and Municipalize The efforts of the National Civic fed Oration have resulted In a commission of Americans whose first Interest in this investigation as in all else Is to do what they may to preserve and Unite the American Idea and America- Institutions believing that the high stato of civilization and prosperity In America justifies the American Idea and the American method and place- the burden of proof heavily upon those who would say another Idea and an other method would result In Improve ment in the condition of the people Believing this to be the thought an Intent of the membership of the commission and of tho committee subor dinate to It we still believe that there are Ills In tho American body politic that may be remedied or cured Wo believe that the remedy should be ap plied and the euro effected without any unnecessary departure from the Amer systemWewhich may be built purity of adminis tration and the highest possible good of the citizens is In existence With us and that it is not necessary In tho ef fort to cure tho ills from which the body politic may be suffering to destroy that body We submit that liv ing Ina land where peace and pros perity are tho common lot wo must be very cautious of change This does not mean that where abuses are found to exist they should not be promptly and mercilessly eradicated but It does mean that changes In system should be undertaken only after conclusive proof that such changes will result In bettering the condition of the individ ual We had better bear the relatively few Ills we have than subject ourselves to unknown conditions that may bring in their train greater Ills of which wo do not know Our Investigation has determined with certainty many heretofore mooted questions It indicates the probably correct answers to other mooted ques I tions Where the facts are clear and the conclusion evident our task tins been to summarize and Indicate Where there Is remaining uncertainty as to facts and conclusions are not evident we have made an effort to determine the probabilities This has resulted in arguments based on such facts as our Investigators have recorded and on our own experience as operators and ob servers We believe no Intelligent reader of the voluminous record of this commissions work will fall to conclude that it clearly proves municipal ownership to be productive of many and serious ills with little or no compensating good The writers of these chapters agree- Ing we believe with the other members of the committee of twentyone that public service companies should reason ably be regulated and afforded the pro tection that comes with regulation and appreciating that the committee was not appointed or constituted to consider methods of regulation nevertheless de sire to record their opinion that some form of regulation of private com panies should be adopted In each of the United States What that form should be this commission Is not pro pared by any Investigation or any study it has made to suggest Finally we who stand In opposition to municipal ownership speaking we believe for all Individualists arraign the arrogance of many of Its advocates In assuming that they exclusively oc cupy the field of reform In dealing with tho problems concerned and that they are the sole promoters of meas area of economic Improvement In mu nicipal affairs Wo assert that the op ponents of municipal ownership and operation firm and consistent support ers of Justice are the class seeking the public welfare intelligently and in ac cordance with American principles Om this point we do not yield to any body ofmenWe as a first principle to In sure every man his own In doing so and In endeavoring to protect the public against oppression and error we find it our duty to demonstrate the errors In the schemes of municipalizes and Socialists and to warn against the oppression that they threaten We are resisting efforts to put burdens on the backs of tho American people We can not and will not remain silent whll the attempt is made to thrust costly and impracticable projects upon cus tomers of public service corporations and upon the public at large We know the truth will out We are confident that ultimately the American people must appreciate at their value the unsoundness of the arguments of tho municipal Socialists Wo shall aid In hastening the day when our fellow citizens will know through discussion what the public of London have been taught by bitter experience London has awakened to the perils of munlcl pallzatlon as is evidenced by Its ver diet in the recent borough and county elections In that great city the munic Ipallzers have led their fellow citizens astray and their dupes finding It out have administered to their false guides an overwhelming rebuke We Individualists are not seeking to lead the people in strange paths Our theyIpIe have marched to heights of pros perity and civic development not Known heretofore to tho civilized world Along these paths have been stumbling blocks Our opponents are endeavoring to persuade us the sole responsibility for these stumbling servicersystem only by a change of system This we deny We are patiently studying the ways of justice Municipalize advocate experimenting at enormous cost with public funds with the principles of lib erty and with the institutions of our country In this we stoutly refuse to take part We are conservatives In

NowScout Talk of War Unlike California Texas is glad to have Japanese within Its borders says a special dispatch from Webster Tex to the Philadelphia Record It has half a dozen colonies of the little brown men now all so industrious and peaceful that they are considered good citizens Through them oriental elo ments are being brought Into thq agricultural methods of the state The principal colonies are at Deep water Webster Wharton and Victoria and in all there are probably 500 Japa In the state A number of Japanese rice farmers are also located along the line of the Southern Pacific between Houston and Beaumont They are adepts at growing rice and other farm products At Deepwater the Japanese method of transplanting rice has been followed for the last two years with the greatest success and profit The rice harvesting season is now In progress and the scene in the Japanese colonies Is an animated one from early morning until late In the evening They conduct the harvesting work on the cooperative plan much the same as wheat harvesting is carried on in the middle states of the north All the Japanese farmers la the colony join forces and help thrash the crops on the different farms The Japanese make a holiday out of the work They appear to get much enjoyment out of everything they do A noticeable thing about the Jap anese in Texas is that they never lose sight of their patriotism for their na tive country The Japanese flag al ways occupies a position of honor upon every farm It may be seen fly Ing upon the thrashing machines while the rice thrashing work Is In progress It Is frequently planted upon some elevated spot In the field whore It is In constant view of the little brown men while they are working The Japanese colonists In Texas have many thousands of acres in rice this year The yield will bo heavy and the profits from the crop large The home life of the Webster and Doepwator colonists is very similar to that which they lead in Japan They attend strictly to their own affairs and seem to lie moro Interested In their farm work than In anything olso The older colonies have succeeded so well that the establishment of a number of others is contemplated A number of Japanese bought severalI thousand acres of land near Wharton last spring and established a colony of fifty Japa nese thereon They rapidly developed the virgin land into the most attractive rice tarns in time state They hnd more than 5000 acres In rice this year They were amply supplied with money from the start with which to carry out their plans and extensive and costly im provements have boon made including an up to date system of irrigating canals and ditches comfortable rest donces barns and rice warehouses They used traction engines as the mo tive power In breaking up the land The cultivation and harvesting of the rice crop were done with the most modern farm Implements Their In dustrious and law abiding ways won for them the respect of the people of that section- A farming company was organized last spring with a capital stock of 200000 for the purpose of establish lag a colony of Japanese near Victoria The company Is composed of Japanese The colony will harvest a largo crop of rice this year Some of time Japanese farmers are Introducing native fruits and vegeta bles Into Texas Y Myuma who has a largo farm near Fannette planted a patch of his ground In Japanese mel ons this summer as an experiment The melons thrived wonderfully and he now has an abundant harvest of them The melons have been placed in the markets at Houston and Beaumont They attract much attention by their peculiar appearance They are more on tho order of a cantaloupe as to size and taste but no one would judge them to be either a watermelon or a cantaloupe by their appearance Mr Myuma claims that this section Is well adapted to raising many kinds of Japanese fruits and vegetables These Texas Japs are not worried over the possibilities of war between the United

Points M O Prac- tIcally Wrong and Results Prove It doe fenders of municipal ownership why cities cannot secure and retain to op crate their plants as good men as prI vate concerns have in their employ An answer is suggested by the following letter from the superintendent of a municipal plant which was printed In a recent Issue of the Engineer Some time ago I bumped Into what I call peanut legislation I took charge of a lighting and pumping plant owned by a city The plant con slated of two very good water tube boilers 125 horsepower each a 14 by 18 inch semiCorliss engine a 100 kilowatt generator two pumps 8 and 12 by 81A Inches with a twelve inch stroke a 0 and 4 by 0 inch feed pump a 000 gallon steam fire engine and a board of public works I was supposed to have charg6 of the entire pltlnt but not of the board but it was necessary to take charge of it at first The plant wn less than a year old Iand after the fashion of municipal plants had alrc idy obtained a good start on the ro id to rack and ruin Tho engine pbn tied and had in less than a years Ur c imbibed ten barrels of oil In spite ol an oil filters efforts Probably the walte oil made fires n bit hotter The boll rs were scandalously dirty both llside and outside and the grate surface 4as onethird larger than was necessary to carry the peak load An open ftttd water heater did business to the tune of 100 degrees Fahrenheit The bumps had been de prof claimed the tact I Fully onefifth of the electric service meters were out of business and customers paying a minimum rate as n result Water services were not metered ntall and customers used water ns they pleased at such times as they found most convenient regardless of sprln kling hours geld in some cases paid what they pleased or not at all After thdfso things had been several ly and coycctlvely attended to the coal heaving was cut squarely In two the oil pouring divided by 10 and the receipts almost doubled In fact a plant which had been losing money on a win ter load was more than running even In April The next year the rate per kilo watt Lour was cut from 10 cents to 8 110 cents with the character of the sorvlco much Improved Mark me not I pray you for conceit but rather as- a narrator of plain unvarnished truth During all this time the board was skIdoo 23 What happened just about that time Very little I assure you- I was advised tbathercaftcr all or ders for supplies repairs etc must pass through the board and be duly acted upon and forwarded to the city clerk or executed I needed a half Inch hose nipple very badly that day and I couldnt get It for n week Then along comes a bunch of No Loafing signs big and red enough to make the place look like a pcsthouse Wiring which was condemned by tho Inspector was approved by the board after due deliberation Then the men at the plant were advised that tho board expected each of them to work a twelve hour shift nnd after or before that do such things as trim lumps repair lines connect serv ices read meters etc Other little bits of advice too numerous to mention came In regularly Wo managed to keep up our work after 1 fashion but things are steadily getting worse Explain things to them Just like butting your bead against a stone wall Grocers and millers and doctors and lawyers make good consulting engineers but when n saving of 2 can be made by

Municipal Ownership Talk Loose thinking and careless writing arc responsible for a lot of the trouble that we mortals bring upon ourselves Take for Instance tho following edi tonal paragraph which appeared In tho Buffalo Times Tho doctrine of municipal owner ship rests upon the broad principle of republican self government To say that a community Is incompetent to own and operate tho means of trans portatlon of Its citizens for Instance Is about as sensible as to assert that a nation Is unfit to fight Its own battles or that It should farm out Its armies and navies to private Individuals or trusts to wage war with If for transportation In tho above paragraph we substitute housing clothing and feeding It would be quite as logical Self government has nothing to do with the providing by state or city of tho necessaries or luxu ties of life M 0 Official Charged With Graft On the confession of his accomplice William Willcox former superintend ent of the municipal electric light plant

Saving to California Growers For years there has been great loss from decay in shipping fresh fruits both citrus and deciduous from this state to eastern markets The rail roads have seldom been able to got fruit trains through on schedule time and the necessary allowance for delay has compelled growers to pick their fruit before It was fully ripe to the loss of some of the flavor and also to the loss of some of the weight which the fruit would gain If left on the tree Some fruitspears for example ripen best after picking and are regularly picked quite green but others do not Fruit picked hi a temperature In the sun of more than 100 degrees and packed In boxes ut ouce carried very nearly that temperature Into the car with It and it wus found that a ear load closely packed would probably be more thun a thousand miles on its Journey east before being cooled bj the Ice to a temperature unfavorable to decay und by that time much of the fruit which was reasonably ripe be fore picking was In a bad way and went right to pieces when exposed to warm air on arrival The evident remedy for that was to cool the fruit before shipment says the San Francisco Chronicle and In genious men got to work devising practicable methods of cooling the fruit to a proper temperature before starting the car This Is accomplished by exhausting the air in a car or In u room before loading and replacing It with air made cold by passing oerIice By the use of machinery the warmed air Is continually drawn out and replaced by the cold air the clr culatlon being continuous By this method a carload of fruit can In two or three hours be reduced to the temperature in which the sporei of decay will not grow and which un der former conditions It might not reach for a week after starting ou its Journey in a refrigerator car The oxIpense Is said not to exceed 2 or 3 cents a crate The fruit can therefore be allowed to get rIpe enough to acquire Its distinctive flavor and still reach Its destination In far better condition than formerly with corre spondingly better prices to growers Experiments have now been made for along enough period to demonstrate the value of the process and cooling plants are being rapidly Installed at allIshipping stations of Importance When the shipments from a station are not large enough to Justify the Installation of a plant the cars can be cooled at tho first cooling station on the journey It Is evident that within two or three years the cooling plants will be gener ally installed and It Is believed that the invention will be found one of theI most profitable Improvements in theI art of handling fresh fruits yet made CONTAINS EHHEDYSMothers srNrtrdldtiafitftktit fis4rU I TAXATION AND IREFORM IN OREGON J sTho legislature of the state of Ore gon has been working out taxation problems during its last session In line with other progressive states an amendment to tho Oregon constltu flan Is proposed The citizens inter ested In tux reform want an amend ment giving the legislature the broad power of classifying the subject of taxation and deciding what will be taxed for state and what for locul pur poses Oregon has bad a taxation commis duo at work for some time Front Its report recently submitted the con elusion reached there Is that the gen eral property tux is not working well and that It ought to be abolished In part at least It Is suggested that It sepuratetsources of revenue for state and for local government and tho only way- t to attain this Is by amending the con stltutlon TAX LAWS Taxation Is the subject of Investiga flan and discussion In many states and three reports have been made by special commissions which give un- Interesting Indication of the present opinionnNow Yorks commission recom mends the abolition of the tax on per sonal property and tho Imposition of progressive tax on inheritances The California commission Is also opposed to taxing personal property but as serts that If It Is to be taxed the rev suite should go to tho counties ex clusively with the revenue from the tax on realty It Is further recom mended that all corporations and franchise taxes be reserved to the state Tile report Of the Massachusetts commission proposes the taxation of direct as well as collateral inherit ances of billboards and of stock transfers the retention of all tram chlse exactions by the state and a graded tax on automobiles It is as serted that with these additional levies the Bay State could readily enough abolish tho tax on realty us excepteHero in Rhode Island the system of taxation is inadequate and inequitable but no effort toward a betterment has been or Is likely to be made as long as the country towns are In the as cendant Providence NewsDemocrat MORTGAGE TAX New York has a mortgage record Ing tax law which has Increased the revenue from mortageg taxation over the old system by 300 percent and re suited in a reduction of interest rates The principal virtue of tho law Is that its operation does not admit fraud since a mortgage to be legal must be recorded and to be recorded must pay the tax Small as the latter is in proportion to the 2 or 2111 per cent formerly levied it has Increased the revenue because formerly more than 80 per cent of the mortgages es raped taxation altogether The New York Sun reviewing the operation of the measure reports that the new law warded off a serious shortage of mortgage capital in this town during the latter half of last year It will no doubt react before long on the rates of Interest bringing them back to the normal level of 4 per cent and 4Y per cent and perhaps establish them eventually at so Iowa rate as 34 to 4 per cent CARDINAL RULES OF TAXATION The remedy proposed by E M Thresher of the Dayton Chamber of Commerce for the difficulties in the tax system of Ohio is similar to the remedy now being urged in many states Ho says The essenco of the difficulty seems to He in the attempt to make the con stitution deal with details rather than i with principles The proper remedy In my Judg ment Is only to be found in an amendment i of the constitution which shall give to the general assembly power to classify all proper subjects for taxation In such a manner that No subject shall escape its proper share of tire burden No subject of the same class shall be taxed more than onCe The tax shall in all cases be uni form to subjects of the same class and just to the subject taxed State of Washington Has a Constltu tional Amendment to Permit Classification of Property For Taxation Purposes I In common with other states that are seriously considering the better ment of tax laws Washington comes to the front with a proposition to amend Its state constitution The pertinent paragraph In the pro posed amendment reads Tho power of taxation shall never be surrendered suspended or contracted J away Taxes shall be uniform upon the same class of subjects and shall be levied and collected for pub II + nnnncaqHONEY
