The Tax IWorin Commission appointed by Gov. Stanley at the last session of the Legislature to study a system of taxation to bring out from hiding a lot of property that should be taxed and at the same time so regulate the assessment as to make it increase instead of repel it from the State, is in session. They are finding a great deal of effect with the present system and are trying to look out an improvement. No new plan can be devised that will be equitable to all. As we have often said" before our tax system is all right, the trouble is iu the assessment. It is right that .all property pay the same tax rate. The trouble is there are too many who fail to assess high enough. This is the cause that must be remedied and then we will 'have eilbugh reven'ue ' in Kentucky to '' run business. Just so long as the'State "officers at Frankfort allow a barrel of- whiskey that Bells for!$100 or more to be assessed at $10 only, and the railroads to be assessed on an earning-(powe- r of 7 per centj just that long the rate will be high so that prospects for new manufacturers to locate in our State will remain discouraging. What should be done and what can be done is to raise the Immediately upon tho introduction in Congress a few weeks ago of a resolution calling upon the Attorney General to investigate the cause for the high cost of gasoline, it began" to get cheaper, and it now looks that no investigation will be necessary. The oil trust didn't want the investigation. White printing paper was never so high before, at least to our knowledge. Senator Martine, of New Jersey, who introduced the gasoline resolution, has now in trdduced a similar resolution to investigate the unreasonable cost of ra;er wl.ic'i is more than double what it was one year ago.

Judge Kirk complains in his contest against Sampson for Ad pellate Judge that Judge Sampson failed to file his expense ac count in proper time. It is al leged by some that while Judge Kirk with the aid of others, friends of his; more thoughtful than he, did manage to get hie expense account to Frankfort in time, it did not in form comply to the law, and that in reality Judge Willis, of Ashland, and Judge Gourley, of Beattyville, were the only candidates for the important office of Judge of the Court of Appeals, that were well enough informed themselves to comply with the new "corrupt practices'' act. The "best fel low" or "my personal iriend" always has prior right over the really competent man. We lose sight of competency in officials always until after the election and they fail to make good. Free Auction Sales, The free auction sale at the Kentucky State, Fair, designed to improve the breed of livestock in Kentucky, will be heldThurs day and Friday of State Fair week, and every encouragement will bo lent 'toward inducing Kentucky farmers and breeders to stock their places with pure bred cattle, sheep, hogs and poui try. Horses and mules will not be sold at this year's auction sale, but'if it proves the great success that its promoters hope, it will be included next year. It was decided not to overload the auction sales this year, but to encourage the improved breed ing of livestock in the fonr fields decided upon. No commission will be charged in the auction sales, and the on ly expense incurred by those who desire to ofter their stock for saje will be the actual feed and nominal fees for stable room.
