of Christian has already Introduced two mportant temperance bills that will be fought bitterly by the liquor Interests The first bill Is one to make the county unit local option law apply lo every county In the state whether the county contains a city of the first second third or fourth class or not The second bulls more sweeping than the first for U proposes to give the pcdplea chance to vote on an amend meat to the constitution which will permit the whole state to vote wet or iry as was done In Georgia and other i Southern sidles Only two proposed amendments to the constitution can be

es o tho state prohibition bill from being passed as the friends of other measures will work for their own pet measures An effort will be made at this ses an to reduce the rate of state taxa in from CO cents on the 100 to 42S snts on tho 100 Representative us Richardson of Meade county has ready prepared such a bill In ad dition to the proposed reduction in the ate the bill proposes to abolish the In sent tax warrant system and will 3x the first day of January each year ss the final day upon which taxes can be paid This will give the taxpayers two months more than they now hive xs the last day under the present paws Nov 1 The Richardson bill also iroposes to change the manner of tax ng dogs by placing dogs on the game ooting as horses and other livestock which are classed as property so If a man owns a 70 dog he must pay the same tax on the dog that ho pays on a 50 horse There Is so much preju dice against any sort of a dogtax how ever that it is hardly probable that this feature will be adopted though it seems assured that the tax rate will bo reduced unless the senatorial fight de feats all important legislation Senator Ilurnam of Madison county has Introduced a bill providing for a rote on the question of amending the constitution that each bonn fide house keeper shall have 350 worth of land dwelling or appurtenances exempt from taxation This will likely prove a

charged with complicit in the murder of William I Goebel and to have a talk with him concerning his confinement r and his trials Mr Powers ha been confined in jail for eigh years and after the recent trial o before special Judge Morris inc which there was n hung jury was refused bail In this trial ten o- i the jury were for acquittal one I was for conviction and the other would have agreed to a verdict of acquittal if the remaining eleven could have agreed So it may be seen that it wasthe judgment o eleven men that was offset by the I f judgment of one man in the mo tion for bail IThefriends of Mr Powers are now circulating petitions for hi pardon and the people of the commonwealth will be called upon to request the Governor to exercise executive clemency in his behalf The petitioners will include woo men of the State who desire to a join in the request to the Gover nor and the entire Stato will hare an opportunity to join in the pee tition Taking the history of the case into

a nation arc enjoying today We are more ally bound as individuals us n community and as a state to edu cate our children and furnish for them the best educational facili I ties possible This moral obliga tion is evident from the peculiar 1 nature of man He is naturally a being to be educated born with a thirst for knowledge and this thirst can not be satisfied without on education and an education can not be obtained without good schools and good teachers There mus not be any sectarianism or parlisanism taught in our school3- a they must be unselfish frec Amer institutions for all the

should be inspired to form exalted ideals of manhood charity rectitude and goqdness and made t strong in the resolution to defend r the truth The timo has como when time I pupils of our public schools

general property tax was put into effect In Kentucky partly because It was believed that under the old sys tern a great deal of property In the shape of money bonds stocks mort gages lien notes and other evidences of credit escaped taxation It was hoped that by a rigid system of assess ment and Inspection a greater amount of this class of property could be brought to light greatly Increasing the revenues of the Mato- Tlio system hag succeeded In bring lug tome of thIs kind of property to light but there Is still an enormous amount of It that escapes taxation The general property tax It should

and this general class of property In normal tUnes much of this class of Investment will not pay over 4 per cent the Income running from 4 to 5H per cent If now tho tax rate absorbs from 2V4 to 3

authorities of states are coming so generally to denounce It In Kentucky the evasions iof the tax on this class of property are enormous In September 1905 only 11480000 of bonds only 1438195 of tock Ju corporq tlons und only I304GS37 of hank do posits was given In toe taxation al though the banks and trust companies of the state contained in that year 93500000 ot deposits At the sumo time the

present till system went Into effect the valuation Increased to 203 per capita In 1900 after eight years of tho new tax system It had In creased to S209an Increase of only 6 per capita The total assessed wealth of tho state In 180was 21203 per capita In 1890 just before the new constitution It had Increased to 27580 From 1890 to 1900 with 14 years under tho new tax system It In creased only to 293 per capita an increase of less than 18 per capita In 16 years I Vnder our old constitution with all Its Imperfections there was some lati tude given to localities in the encour conlstltuuon new
