Shows up Double Game of Democrats Beckham and Halters Alleged Ad o herance to Temperance Wont Bear Bead Paris Ky Sept 17Ono of th best evidences of the Intenso Interest that is being taken in the campaign for good government in Kentucky was shown in the audience which greeted Augustus E Willson the Republican nominee for Governor at this place to day Of the crowd which filled the Circuit Court room of the handsome c Bourbon County Court house a large portion came directly from the farm where tho cutting of tobacco and hemp is being conducted with unusual activity just now In his address today Mr Willson again exposed the false pretenses of the Democratic State machine In the matter of temperance legislation Ho showed how Gov Beckham had ivv er helped the temperance cause by any official act and how the Governor and his associates worked the unit bill On this point Mr Willson said When I think of Governor fleck ham and Auditor Hager posing a strong temperance men I cannot help thinking of the old saying slight changed to suit this case out of the fullness of the mouth the heart speak eth and It will be stronger than any profession to cite the Republican plat form which was adopted by the whole splendid convention without a diss nt Ing vote and is the Republican law and rule on this question We favor the enactment and en forcement of a uniform local option law VJth the county as the and there should bo prompt and sufficient enforcement of the criminal law of every kind and at alHttnire On that platform I accepted the nomination To the fulfillment of tho principles of that platform I an pledged In letter and splrtlt of honor All my days I have striven sincerely and faithfully for temperance and I have practiced what I preached- I am most seriously and unrelentingly opposed to Intemperance I be lieve unrelentingly In the rule of the majority city and precinct- I do not believe that the people of Kentucky can be fooled by any pre tense that the Republican platform Is weak on the subject or that I have been dodging or straddling either in my preaching or my practice and I deprecate the utter lack of candor not to use stronger language which Is shown In the statements which I have quoted from the Democratic nominees and In West Liberty last Saturday that all I said at Maysvllle on the subject was the passage about tho Mays vllle editor scattering broken glass In the path for my bare foot when I came back to Maysvlllo as a child return lug to his birthplace The county unit bill as adopted excluded from its operation counties having cities of the first four classes and now Mr Hager says he is in fa vor of extendinglt to all counties But I wish now to cite against these present claims of devotion to temperance a few material facts know to all the people which will settle the question as to whether they are sip cereSenator Cammack Introduced the local option law which extended to all counties and It was referred to the committee and in spite of the pre tended zeal of the Governor and Audi tor who In most matters had absolute control of their party in he Legisla ture the Cammack bill ws pigeon holed in the committee until tha rising storm compelled the committee to report on It- Neither the Governor or tho Audi tor pretended to have ever asked any one to do anything to have it report ed as they would have done having tho power they did if they sincerely wished any such legislation The Rev Mr Maclachlan In his open letter to uditor Hager stated that he seer the saloon keepers association cleck for 3600 collected by Mr Hager for the Democratic campaign tfind and that he was informed tha1 llr Iager had promised the man who gate himI the check to protect e saloon men U1 ISlllU o c UIG unit Bill and 4Verior B knam In the Louis ageS ahvlil stat1on in Lquls of tho promise r 24JaPaablictla In the to sit ti I i I I ture in a caucus by unanimous vote made the Cammack bill a party meas ure and when at last after every effort to suppress the bill a report was made by the committee the Democrats instead of reporting the Cam I mack bill reported what was called newspapersInisie at that time was understood In the Legislature and everywhere else s- afe bo a compromise between the men demanding the Cammack bill among whom no one classed Governor Beck ham or Auditor Hager and tho people opposed to the Cammack bill and any county unit law among whom every body classed Governor Beckham and Auditor Hager It is well known that Governor Beckham levied on the liquor interests for enormous sums of money and that such antagonism as they are re ported to have against the Governor and the Auditor are not because they Inow claim to favor temperance laws but because they took enormous sums of saloon money to clinch their pow or upon their state and party and then betrayed the men by whose help alone they obtained that power When the compromise bill was re ported Senator Cox Republican mot ed the substitution of the Cammack bill and the Democratic majority voted- s that substitute down against the united Republican vote and the compro poreyDemocrats than voted for Itand would not have passed it had it not been saved by Republican votes In all that struggle not a word was said nor an act done by the Governor nor Au ditor to help pass It Mr Willson called the attention to n certain statement which has boon made by the machine nominee to tho effect that If he was elected Governor wouldgbe to pardon the men under Indict 1meat In connection with the Goebel murder If I thought the people believed I would pardon these then without a fart trial I would quit this campaign he said A Governor will not be a political Governor if he Is a gentleman and here is a man who docs not be lievo that crime Is political How the people are being humbugge by the statements of machine leaders was shown by Mr Wlllson when he ox plaited that the socalled Bradley bond issue of 1000000 was to pay the floating indebtedness incurred by pre vious Democratic administrations Tha was a sample he said and tho kind of square deal the Frankfort rrachine belle ed in He then went on to show by figures taken from State Audit JIagers books how the expense of conducting tho penitentiaries had been nearly 1 000000 more a year than under Gov Bradleys administration At the close of Is address Mr Will son paid an earnest tribe to the peo ple of Bourbon county and their en terprise and civic pride In erecting the handsome temple of justice In which he was speakind Hartford College Ice Cream

Fernwood Fernwoods citizens rejoice In a novel and most effective mall system the most interesting portion of which is a big dog who carries the null bag front the station to the Postoffice a distance of two squares His name Is Collie and he is owned by theI Postmaster William 13 Evans At the first warning rumble of the approaching mail trains Collie is on the alert whining eagerly for the com stand to go He rushes off to the station as soon as air Evans gives the word and the station agent who shares the communitys pride in the t shaggy carrier fastens a heavy bag between his teeth and starts him homeward Collie is a clever one said the station agent and he always carries i the hag while Colonel his twin brother stumbles alongside as a I guard They always travel together and when Collie comes after the mall hag I give it to him because Mr Evans has trained him to carry it tftraight to the Postoffice but I see he has an awful time with his brother The two dogs are remarkable In many ways and have been taught a number of clever tricks Mr Evans has fitted up a little hell inside the Postoffice beneath which a chair is placed Fire says Mr Evans in an ex cited undertone and away races the dog leaps on the chair and paws the little bell Its musical little tinkle ev- Idently appears to Collie to be suffici cnt to alarm the authorities since this is tho favorite of all his bag of tricks He and his twin brother are three years old and have been trained from their earliest puppy days to open land close the postofflce door They sit obediently on their haunches and hog for crackers a lure to which they are never indifferent though they are often tired enough of the countlnuous performance which they pull off for the neighbors as well as their visitors Colonel you come this way while Collie gets his picture made said Mr Evans yesterday and the humble Colonel who is bowed down with time weight of his brothers superior In telligence went obediently out of the spotlight as he had been told Both dogs are very strong and have splendid heads and when they stand upright in affectionate attempts to embrace the Postmaster their paws I rest lightly on his

last Saturday contained a dispatch from Franl fort detailing the manner in which the election of 1903 WAS conducted in one of the Franklin county precincts to elect Hager to the position of State Auditor which should bring the blush of shame to all true Kentuckians nut lovers of right We publish the follow Ing extracts from the disclosure Worse than alphabetical voting worse than mere rifling of the ballot box or the ordinary skulduggery election thelf Is the crime of 1903 dis covered here today by aytasual Inves tigation In the office of the County Clerk of Franklin county The record in one precinct of this county for the election of that year when Col Morris B Belknap opposed Gov J C W Beckham for the gu bernatorial chair throws an illuminat- Ing flood upon the method used by the Democrats In that election when by such methods the Democratic ticket was nominally elected It explains easily other remarkable phenomena and even suggests how during tho Democratic primary of ISOGwhen Coy Beckham and Auditor Hager were op posing Senator lames H McCreary and Attorney General Hays returns from some counties gave those In control of the machinery greater ma jorities than there were voters Incontrovertible evidence and un mistakable proof have been advanced to show wlthput a doubt and that all the world may see and believe that in the Bailey precinct famous as having returned a unanimous verdict for the Peerless Leader whose strength with the people even men in his own party notably John K Hen drick have impugndd 210 votes were returned for Beckham one was

problem to the railroads I of the United States Only recently i the Forestry Bureau of the Depart j anent of Agriculture predicted a lum seventyIfive III 1 of lumber was maintained under pres i ent conditions of preservation forests and manufacture of outputI- When it is realized that the railroads used last year 103000000 railroad tlesl averaging about thirty hoard feet each and that this number of ties aggregates more than 3000000000 board feet or onetwelfth of the sawed lum her produced In the entire country in ore year the problem can be better understood That such a shortage beet foreseen by the railroads is tested by their almost frantic haaj in the past to find a substitute wood from which to make railroad A few years ago a steel tie was invent ed which It ws predicted would produce a revolution in the business A serious occident on the Pennsyl vania Railroad during the last winter which was ascribed to the use of steel j ties on a curved track resulted in the displacement and a return tQ the old wooden railroad tic J hbeentended even the steel tlewith the reI suit that the railroads now seem absoi lately wedded to the wooden product I by force of

never will be an accurate invoice of the estate left b- yUlf L te Richard Mansfield But under r the laws of the State of Connecticut where the will will be undoubtedly probated it is necessary to make an approximate Inventroy and this will a show whether the estimate of Mr Mansfields fortune of a little u uder 1000000 is exaggerated or an under estimate The Impression among Mr 1Mansfields friends in this city is that S a considerable part of his estate is 1 of a character which were he living and able to utilize it would be worth many thousands more than it will letch in the market now that he is gone There will be much depression in the value of all the accessories of i his stage career I But in any event Mr Mansfield will be regarded as a great fortune maker especially in view of the fact that his permanent fortune was not begun until afout fifteen y ears age He was bankrupted heavily In debt by reason of his venturesome experiment with 4the production of Richard III He met much the same experience as be fell Edwin Booth thirty years earlier Mr Booth gained great artistic pVes tlge at the same time that he lost his fortune through his superb pro I duction of Shakespearean plays

1- Ohio county will make no mistake in sending Dr Duff to Frankfort and Mr Flener to jail If Taylor and Powers were out of the way what would Beckham and Hager do for a campaign issue If the present ring at Frankfort is kept in power there will be no re duction in taxes Stick a pin here It Is but one step from the tax receipt qualification to the property qualification for the voter Remember this The Republican imrty stands for protection to home and labor The Democratic party stands for free trade and cheap European labor To read the speeches of the Demo cratic stumpers one would think that the Republicans stole the offices in 1899 and thus started all the trouble at Frankfort U Not much dependence should be placed in a set of politicians who promise to lower taxeswhen the same crowd has taxed everything from a soda fountain down to the dog If you live in an incorporated town you must register or you cannot vote for Willson and against the proposed Constitutional Amendment requiring a tax receipt to make you elligiblc to vote We can only Judge the future by the past Would it be safe for temper ance people to entrust their interests to a man who four years ago accept ed a check for 3600 from the whis key Interests for campaign purposes Tuesday October 1 is registration day Every person who lives in any kind of town must register or be de prived of the right to vote It makes no difference if you registered last year you must do so again this year If you want to vote MrLafoon must think the memories of Kentucky voters very dnflclentwhen he tries to make them believe that the Bradley administration is responsible for the bonds issued to fund a debt of 2000000 which had accumulated under Democratic rule T The Republicans of Ohio county arc exceedingly fortunate In the selection of a nominee for jailer No better cit izen than Win Flener could be found in the county and he and Dr Duff will carry the County by large maj joritics rendering valuable assistance to the State ticket f We hope thoso who are developing the new language Esperanto will leave out all ficussf words There 1e nothing so disgusting to the sensi tlve ear as to hear some boy who thinks it adds tohis manhood or some old cuSs just cussing afout d on the streets without any sense of propriety much less thought of theL sin of taking the name of God i vain Mr Beckham the peoples chief executive refers to the office grabblr g otherwise known as the office theft which he S W Hager and others engaged in the early part of 1900 con stitutionalcontest The people remember the occurrence and such sugar coated references will not change the fact that he and Mr Hager each served four years as State officials In offices to which they were not elected We admire Mr Wlllsons position o the Taylor Powers ease We believe Mr Willson would be just as far tram pardoning either without a fair trial or a just cause as Mr Hager Cut th business clear out of the campaign an get on something higher Good roads would be a mighty good question for discussion and A would be a question vital toe Interests oi all the peo pie Breckenridge News Beckhui Hager Co will never cut it out un til the people rise up in their might and say enough Governor Beckham in a recent speech referred to the exploitation by Republicans of his special attorneys fee record which reveals the fact that 17390214 has expended for special and needless attorneys who possessed lit tle or no legal ability during his ad ministration as reviving already ex ploded charges We would like to ask the Governor if his statement made In the same speech to the effect that Governor Bradley at the election In 1899 called into active service the State mailtia isnt the same falsehood and intentional misrepresentation to which he has given utterance In every cam paign for the past seven years Bj the way the 75000 Celhoun fee which Mr Beckham paidwhcn the work done was previously contracted for at 3000 may already be exploded but it re mains the same burning truth that It always has been- Democratic candidates for State of fices are very much wrought up be cause Republicans arc demanding a look at the books and declare with great wramth that nothing was found wrong with the books when Bradley was elected In 1895 Our recollection is that the books at that time were found with the balance very much onI tho wrong side In other words the State had suspended payment of all warrants and no one knew what the outstanding Indebtedness amounted to These warrants had been hawked about from one money broker to another for years Witness fees and jury fees sold In Hartford at a dis count of 25 cents on the doUar The Bradley administration found an in tlebtec ness of this character alone amounting to almost 2000000 If the books at Frankfort arc in no better condition than those in Louisville tvhichhave been in charge of a set who rae at least first cousins to the ring at Frankfort they need attention- at the hands of new men rIn response to our request the Hart ford Herald this week reluctantly and bad humordly reproduces the retrac tion of Rev Hunt of his base and groundless charges against Mr Will son In an editorial however it re fers to the statement of Rev Hunt as an alleged retraction meaning- to cast doubt upon Its authenticity i and kill somewhat the effect It is bound to produce whichI fairminded honest people The Is that but for our friendly nagging the Herald would never have given space to the Hunt retraction and those of its readers who are so untoriumue pubIHshbetter The Herald complains that it- Is not read by any considerable number of Ohio county Republicans It was for the benefit of Democratic readers that we thought it should publish both ends of tins story and now that it has done so we know its editors must feel better even though such a small act of justice did put a bad taste in their mouths Cheer up like the fellow who is required to take salts you will feel better later We do not know Just what the Herald alms to convey by this paragraph One thing the Herald has never done ind that is openly defended the acta of a man thrice convicted of one of the highest crimes known to the law We can say the same just as truth fully if you mean to insinuate that we have defended or condoned the crime of assassination either at Frankfort or Jackson We are asked to publish the order of Judge Stout granting alleged immunity iVom arrest to Governor Taylor It he will return to Kentucky tp testify in the Powers trial If the Herald editors will examine our last issue they will find that we not only told of Judge Stouts order but also referred to Jeckhams and Franklins grants of immunity Tho order itself is Imma tonal and the Herald could with as much property and sense ask us to epYoduce Washlngtons farewell address or a speech of Bob Ingersoll + t 11FAOt t7w iI The order which we naked to pub dish floes not retract a slander which we have published Whenever we doa give space to a wild charge against Democratic candidate for Governor 01 any one else for that matter and the charge is completely restracted we will be only too glad to do the honor able thing by publishing the retrac Lion also with as much prominent sand do so without making an ugly jface and without having to be nag god into it by some other paper Tariff Sense and Nonsense- Mr Bryan does not have muchf faith in the prediction that the Tar Ils to be the paramount issue in thE next campaign He says that in his I opinion it will occupy no such plat of inportance It will be merely In uponny l right There is nothing in the Tarlt to quarrel over This country con times to believe in a Protctivo Tariff indusdsupremacy country is not going to abandon that policy next year To abandon it or to modify it greatly even would bring upon this country Industrial horror compared with which those of a dozen years ago would be mild indeed As thanIThe Tariff Tinker Never Sleeps The Tariff tinker is one of the most unique of modern freaks In promot his favorite scheme for the unbal ling of business equillbrim he never He is the festering sore and I the intermittent fever that afflict struggling enterprises and he yields only to heroic remedies I It Is undoubtedly true that the Tarl could never be adjusted to suit everybody Probably each and everyone of the 500 manufacturers who assembled in New York recently could sug gest a Tariff that would benefit his particular business But how about the thousands of workingmen manufacturers and mer chants whose interests would not be considered in the revision No matter who demands FreeTrade or its substitute Tariff revision there is no question that under pros ent schedules the nation is enjoying a period of greatest prosperity In Its history Why not leave well enough alone The StandPatters Creed The standpatters simply represent partII atlons of made at the last national convention and propose to stand by them until the coming convention makes future polices clear Simply because Democratic papers all over the country and u few inde pendent Republican papers are de manding revision of the Tariff with out giving any definite reasons for such revision and pointing out no specific cases where revision is really ueededor wherein such u revision will be of particular benefit to the people generally is no reason why the Re publican party should stultify Itself and its code of principles by plung ing into a revision of the Tariff In prosperiIInterests and of the wage earners might seriously be affected There is a vast number of businessmen in this country who are not con vinced that even 1909 would be a period when revision will be demanded by the conditions of the business world But there is no doubt that if a genuine and universal demand is made in the Republican ranks for a change in the schedules the national convention will give it earnest attention That which the national organi zation decides is best for the country will be the creed of the standpatters because they are in fact the party and will decide what is to be done Trenton Gazette Augustus E Willson and the r enple Perhaps the remarkable personality- of Augustus E Willson whom the Republicans of Kentucky by acclamation have chosen as their standard bearer in their fight for honest government is as largely responsible for his great popularity among the voters as the Men women and children are Instinctively drawn to Mr Willson- in whom they are quick to recognize the broadgauge sincere gallant and representative Kentuckian To slightly paraphrase an old saying One touch of Willson makes all Kentucky kInThe average man admires grit and perseverance above almost anyone thing and the brother who knows not defeat or failure awakens in him n respect that is not easily shaken perhaps no man In Kentucky is bet ter known by reputation than Mr tVillson Certainly there Is no man who has n cleaner political business and porsonal record His political struggles have always been watched with great Interest Four times was Mr Willson nominated by acclamation for Congress- and threo times was he defeated foV n seat in that body by the vote of the people in a hopelessly Dcmocratlcdls tract Once he was elected to Con s6Ya r gress iti that same Democratic distract and the story of how he was cheated and robbed of that election is n matter of common knowledge However its a long lane that has no turn and indications give strong as surance that in November Mr Willson will at last come into his own whichI after all will not be so much his gain as that of the people of Kentucky whose interests it surely may be de pended will be carefully conserved during his tenure of office During the recent campaign of the Kentucky mountains Mr Willsons progress from county to county was marked by continuous ovations from I Republicans and Democrats alike The plain man of the people and n good mixer he has been styled and from the laborer to the bank President all have felt the heartiness of his handclasp and greeting Old cit izens who have watched the prop ress of many late campaigns say that never has a more popular candidate been before the people of Kentucky and are freely predicting that he will be returned the winner of the Guber natorial race Louisville Herald Farm For Sale- A tract of land

when a year has rolled around to estimate the amount of tax that has been collected in Kentucky by the state and by coun ties on real estate Hen notes and mortgage notes This subject of mort gage taxation Is one that Kentucky should very carefully consider In most states It has been recognized that to tax mortgages Is to impose double taxation since by the borrow ing of money upon real estate no now property has been created but only the same property twice It has been considered however that the state Is entitled to some revenue from this source and other states have solved the problem by levying a registration tax upon mprtgages Under this system when a mortgage is filed for rec ord it pays a tax of five dollars on each thousand dollars of the amount SUbS91quent Where this system has been tried the result has beer a considerable in crease In the revenue from taxation of mortgages The system which we are trying In Kentucky by which the county clerk Is required to make n correct return to the assessor of all mortgages gives very little chance for any mortgages to escape taxation so that to adopt In Kentucky the sys tern of a registration tax on mort gages would not bo productive of more revenue and might possibly be productive of less but it is questionable whether the slight additional reienue derived from these mortgages makes up for the Injustice done to the borrowers of money It Is not conceivable that a man will lend money at 5 or C per cent and then pay from 2 i to 3 per cent In the way of tax mid yet It would amount to this In very many of our Kentucky elites and towns Rather than do so since heI can not now under the lawnvold closing his possession of the mort gage the lender will simply retire from the money lending market These restrictions curtail the amount of money that will be loaned on mort gages and result in a hardship to bor rowers It should be remembered also that the borrowers affected this case are of tho wry best class 111Ii farmers who need to raise money their farms men of small means i desire to borrow money to build homes as well as men who pledge real estate to aid them in extensive building or Industrial operations The possibility of borrowing the money they need from private sources has always been of great advantage to people of these classes especially in small towns and cities where there are not so many trust companies mak ing loans The lender might standIthe burden of the tax If he lowed to add that amount to his rate of interest but he Is headed off in that direction by the usury laws In many casts he takes chances on this point and by various devices will con trive to collect from the borrower some extra premium by way of offset to the tax he must pay on the mort gage In this way the burden falls j direct on the borrower and must In cvltably tend to increase the Interest rate on mortgage loansIThat a tax on mortgages does 10II increase the Interest rate on gage loans has been clearly proved by the experience of New York It Is not to be supposed that there j will be any opposition to the tax on mortgages on the part of corporations which have money to lend since bylaw banks and trust companies aru not specifically taxed on their inert gage loans Hut any banker dislikes to see anything done that restricts the Amount of available capital in the state for such restriction of available capital means restriction of busy ness restriction of all forms of progress that make the state more prosperous Experience has up to this time demonstrated that the only beneficiaries of the attempt to i rigidly tax mortgages are the foreign Insurance companies which come into tit state Dud lend their money andI t being resident In other states do not have to pay a tax on their mortgagesjThe same registration has been adopted is to the mortgages flied by railroad and other corporations This is proving a more a effective way of taxing bonds than to take the chance of individual holders t being willing to give them in for tax atlon which they generally fan to do in view of the fact that the bonds rarely pay more than 5 to 10 per cent IIthis11withwillingly submit to confiscation The subject of taxing credits is one of the most difficult in the realm nf taxation and It is a field where takes are most costly because misj the taxation of this form of IImunltycommunity means tho curtailment of all the enterprises that build up the community and add to its population and to the value of its real estate F + o wewwwr rrrywi I DRIVEN AWAY u BY TAXATION r Very Large Capital WithawnIromK- entucky The Case of the Walsh Estate In Lex ington Points Out a Dangerous Result of Our Tax System The manner In which the tax system of Kentucky may seriously affect Its business interests was recently given a very striking demonstration In Lexington The estate of Mrs Clara Bell Walsh amounting to about 750000 had been for many years managed by the Security Trust com pany of Lexington as trustee A pe titian was filed recently in the Fay ette circuit court asking the court to terminate the trusteeship so that Mrs Walsh might put her property in the hands of a trust company In St Louis The Security Trust company which had been acting as trustee did not oppose tfjiS stilt it being distinct ly stated In the petition of Mrs Walsh I that the services of tile trust company had been in every way satisfactory but that the taxes Imposed upon her property were too burdensome The peculiar feature of the case lies in the fact that Mrs Walsh herself elclaimsthe hands of her trustee The court of appeals having held otherwise and Mrs Walsh not feeling Justified InI paying a tax rate of 270 on stocks bonds and other Investments- In the hands of tho Kentucky trustee since she could not derive any possi ble good from the payment of this tax decided to remove the property i to the state of her residence A considerable part of the estate I wits Invested In local securitiesthe bonds of local corporations and real estate mortgages This will mean that the money wilt gradual be with drawn from Investment In these local securities and reinvested by the St Louis trustee In other securities thus constituting a loss of that much money to enterprises In and around Lexington and Fayette county It means just that much greater scarcity of needed capital The Lexington Herald has been with great energy and skill showing the result of this sort of taxation on the business Interests of the state It points out among other things the Inconsistency in the decisions of our courts which hold that a man who lives in one Kentucky county and has intangible personal property such as stocks bonds or money in the hands of n trustee in another county of Ken tucky must pay the tax In the county of his ifsldence and not in the county where the trustee resides but if the owner of the property moves entirely out of the state then he must pay a tax In the county where the tusteu resides as well as pay the tax In the state where he takes up his new resl dence thus constituting double tax ation Consumed With Taxation In her petition asking for the change in trusteeship Mrs Walsh says Plaintiffs desire if said Clara Bell Walsh be not entitled to a discharge of the trustee that there be a change in the per son of said trustee and if It can be done that the funds and property in trust be transferred to a trustee duly qualified under and resident in the state of Missouri where they have their homo Plaintiffs state that tho reasons why a change of trustee is desired do not In any manner reluto to the conduct or fidelity of said trustee but are on account of the heavy burdens of taxation Imposed on said estate by reason of the residence of tire trustee In a state and city different from the home of the beneflclarICourt of Appeals The Herald adds the following actI as to the case Under this decision of the court Mrs Walshs personal prop tarty In the hands of tho Security Trust company would be liable for city state and county taxes here and realizing that she a nonresident of tho state could derive no possible benefit from taxes paid to the city on her personal property Mrs Walsh takes this means of getting possession of her property The removal of the estate to another state Is a power fun argument against the wisdom of he system of taxation In force In Kentucky for though the Invest fonts made by the trustee In local securities are so safe and highly regarded us to be retained yet when a reinvestment is made it is likely that large portion of the funds will be nvested elsewhere thus depriving his community and state of so inuch badly needed capital for Its progress and developmentPoverty or Perjury A prominent attorney of this city n discussing before the Taxation Committee of the Kentucky senate in 905 tho tax system of our state denounced our personal property tax as necessarily leading either to poverty or perjury We do not know whether any statistics on the aubject are available but we think It a safe guess that at least threefourths of all the Intan Ible personal property such as bonds notes and cash which is as eased for taxation in Kentucky is In the hands of fiduciaries Is It a fall and manly thing to place upon thoso least able to bear It nearly all the burden of such a taxr q4t a SIX GREAT DAYS AND NIGHTS State Fair at Louisville Will Be a Memorable Occasion Everything Is In readiness fot the opening of the State Fair in Louisville for the week of Sept 16th The entries made in all departments exceed the most sanguine expectations of the State Fair officers Undoubtedly the live stock exhibits as well as those in other departments will be in keeping with State Fairs that are many years older than Kentuckys in stitutionWith seventeen exhibit departments the visitor will have enough to see for several days Indeed It Is not expected that anyone could fully cover the Kentucky State Fair in one days time Passing from the exhibit depart ments to the amusement features It may be said without fear of contradiction that the biggest attractions of the kind that were ever secured for a State Fair have been contracted for by the State Board of Agriculture under whose auspices is to be held permanently in Louisville the State Fair The State Board has pulled Itself away from the old ideas of carnival companies etc It has closed con tracts only for the biggest amusement features There will be about ten of these but they will represent more genuine amusements than one hundred small carnival shows The fireworks exhibition at night when the Eruption of Vesuvius is reproduced will prove a great card In addition to all this Captain Kna bcnshue will personally appear at the Fair in his new passengercarrying airshipThere will also be balloon races and captive balloons- If yfiu want to see all of the State Fair this year we would advise you to come prepared to stay several days In a

ucky at present than the question of axatlon Those who have interested c henvselves In studying the growth of- I k he states Industries during the past jpar ind watched the attempts to develop Its resources have been deeply Impressed with the fact that our tax nn a most serfous obstacle to succWss So deepseated Is this con viction In the minds of hundreds of appearstoKentucky will at last make up their minds that nothing Is more worthy of their serious attention than this tax question As a rule they concern themselves with It only when the as sessor makes his annual call or when they walk up to the tax collectbrs of fice to settle Then they are fully er suaded that the whole tax system li wrong but as soon as the tax has been paid and the stuart of it has been for gotten the whole question is apt to be passed up again without another thought until another assessment and paying tlnra rolls around It Is Important to Kentucky that the people of the state should realize that taxation bears in a most vital way upon the prosperity of the state and In order that taxation may be wisely adjusted it is necessary for the Intelli gent people of the state to turn them tlves to a careful study of the whole JPluestion and persist In it until the tax system of the state Is of a kind that will yield all the necessary revenues with the least possible burden Ac cording to the justice or injustice of the tax according to Its reasonable ness or Its oppressiveness capital Is Invited to a community or driven from it industries will flourish or bs de stroyed competition with other states may be possible or may be rendered ut of the question Justice may be done or flagrant Injustice Imposed The Committee of the Senate No little disappointment was felt by those who have studied the tax situ ation in Kentucky when the commit tee of the State Senate appointed to consider tax questions during the In terim between the sessions of 1904 and 1906 fall dJ to recommend anything more moreAIrevenues along the of the old rev enue bill In Its report to the senate t thefcommittee showed that It had very I seriously considered the advisability- of recommending more radical changes in our system but it reported the conclusion that It was not at that time advisable to do more than at tempt to perfect the old system along old lines The reason given for this In the report was that the revenue system then In force had perhaps not been sufficiently tried out and was entitled to a longer experiment And there is much to be said agalpst hasty tinkering with tax laws Did Its Best There is no doubt that the committee Itself felt disappointed in not being able to recommend something more It spent many months in carefully con sidering the tax situation It held hearings in various parts of the state at which hearings there appeared be fore the committee by Its Invitation representative farmers and business men to present their views on the subject of taxation The committee could ot fall to be impressed with the general dissatisfaction with the system in force In Kentucky and yet they did not then think the time ripe to recom mend a leparture committeesIture to tighten up the leaks in the old system and to make one further des perate but futile effort to get satlsfac tory results out of the old plan of the uniform general property tax Of course this attempt has not succeeded It probably never will succeed and In other states public men have ceased to expect that such a plan can by any probability succeed From the rapid progress made in the last 10 years in tire study of public finances those who best understand the question have reached the conclusion that the nfl fom general property tax Is unsound productivo An Official Tax Commission There has grown up in the state some sentiment for a tax commission With some official status whose duty 1t shall be to go thoroughly Into the I whole question of taxation with a view to devising a better system along new lines and of course new lines are not possible In Kentucky without fi cbanging the constitution At pi ent our constitution ties us fast to the general property tax as it Is called that Is to the system of levy- Ing the same tax upon all classes of property for all purposes Other states have employed such a commis sion with good results and indeed commissions of this kind are now at work In a number of states getting to the very bottom of the question of tax ation and a work that is result lnp j gradually in a vast Improvement 0 ix methods So far Kentucky has AflO step In this direction Volun- ta organizations like the State De velopment Association and various commercial bodies have appointed tax bestjsubject but It is possible that there 4 develop the necessity for an offl mar tax commission Whether this should come about or not the demand Is becoming ry in Blatant in many quarters for a thor ough investigation and reform of our K system and

cal option in matters of taxation The amendment was adopted by the last legislature of Missouri and will voted on by the people of the state beI the next general election This amendment provides that the sources of state and local revenue shall be sep arated by the year 1909 and that thereafter the counties in the state may tax or exempt for local purposes any class of propertv in tion of the county court It will be ob served that both Ohio and Missouri separating This Is the system that has been In successful operation for many years in Pennsylvania and It seems the logical rnd only satisfactory solution of the present complicated tax situation Minnesota Makes ProgressIThe people of Minnesota at the last election held In that state ratified a practically the power of the legislature In rela tion to taxation The legislature at Its session last winter passed two measures recommended by the gover nor for the purpose of putting into effect the provisions of the constitu tional amendment One of these pro vided for a permanent tax commission to recommend amendments to the rev enue laws and to perform certain ad ministrative work The other measure impoVed a recording tax on mort gages of onehalf of one per cent In this mortgage tax Minnesota Is follow ing the experiment successfully tried b the state of New York Under this- plan the tax of onehalf of one per cent is collected when the mortgage Is recorded and the mortgage is thereafter exempt from taxation Old mortgages may registered on payment of one half of one per cent tax and are thereafter also exempt from further taxa tion In both Minnesota and New mortgageshasIncreased revenue It has some very decided advantages over the plan which Kentucky Is now trying the chief visible effect of which at pres ontIsto tax holders ofmortgages who live In the state while exempting holders of mortgages on Kentucky property who live outside the state In Illinois the Civic Federation of Chicago has procured the introduc tion of an amendment to the consti tuition of the state very similar to that adopted in Minnesota Activity In Other States In the state of Washington there has been very considerable agitation of the question of taxation and the last legislature passed a measure affect ing the method of taxing intangible personality One result of separating different of property for differ ent rates of taxation and for different purposes is that the tax burden can way be Just to each class of according to its burdenbear ing capacity- In the state of Oklahoma a clause was Inserted in the constitution very similar to the tax provisions of the Minnesota constitution A number of other states have tax commissions at work Texas has been overhaul ing its tax laws The tax commission of California has just made Its report In the state of New York a tax re orm league has been at work for nearly fifteen years with the result that some very wise amendments to the tax laws of that state have been made Needs Thorough Study questlon the light of the experience of other states as well as with due regard to its own experience more than docs Kentucky For fifteen years since the new constitution was adopted we have striven hard to realize that dream of uniformity in taxation wlilch animated the makers of the now con stitution Wo have not succeeded In doing this It Is true the revenues of the state have Increased but the tax burden has been extremely heavy on some classes of pronerty while some classes of property have gone al most scot free The amount of money stocks and bonds reported for taxa tion Is ridiculously small The falsity of the tax returns betrays itself upon comparison with the reports of the deposits in the banks only kind of personal property that does not escape is that visible tangible personal property found chiefly on the farm can not hide his horses cattle and farming Implo ments so he has to pay while the man in town can hide money or his stocks and bonds and escape his share of the burden This will al ways bo the case while human nature remains as it is It is Incumbent upor Kentucky to find some way of deriv ing n revenue from this elusive class of property- It will probably take a long time for Kentucky to reach the point of be lieving in the policy of separating the sources of revenue selecting on clns of property from which to raise Its state revenues another class of prop erty from which to raise Its city reIenucs Unless the experience of other states Is to be belled by the ex perlence of Kentucky that Is what we are to come to some time though It may be far in the future We can not well continue to adhere to a system that Is being abandoned by other states and in will put us In the position of handicapping our property owners ot every with a burdensome tax system which will seriously injure them in the sharp tompetltion with the less heavily bur dened property owners of other states Ills at least worth while for Ken tucky to be studying the question and wink seriously about it T I r MISSOURI CASE LIKE KENTUCKYS In the Matter of Trouble With Tax System A Tax Commission Has Just Made a Report That Is of Interest- In This State Missouri has been laboring under a difficulty In Its tax system nearly exactly 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 of 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 sepa revenusIsources revenue The comments of the Missouri tax commission are so pertinent to the situation In Kentucky that the follow interestIany 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 I single constitutional amendment I The general features of this sepa ration of the sources of state and I local revenues may be briefly sum marlzed The state would discontinue tie levy of a general property taxI I upon the real and personal property of the state leaving theI and collection of this tax assessmentI ties and municipalities for local pur I poses This would make a saving of I the large expense Incident to the present dual system It would alno I dispense with the work of tho State Board of Equalization connectedI withI the attempted equalization of r3 I ments of real nnd personal property among tho counties of the stateI The state would thereafter derive I Its revenue through Its Inherent gen I eral power of taxation upon general subjects of taxation as by licenses corporation taxes Inspection fees and I such other forms of taxation as the general assembly may determine The different rates of assessment in I the different counties enforced by the different demands for local revenue would no longer produce Inequality In taxation with reference to the stateI tax The remedy proposed Is in our opinion the only effective remedy Each community could fix its own rate of valuation as Its Iccal n eds may require without subjecting Its citizens to the injustice of being compelled to pay an undue share of state taxation I There Is now a certain kind of home rule In taxation which consists In the variation of the rates of assess ment upon uroperty according to the someIothers only 20 or 30 per emit The report of tho Tax Commission of 190J says It Is In the bounds of truth tosay that no two counties of the state have the same rule for tho assessment of nil classes of property and generally speaking there Is absolutely no uni formity 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 a11J per cent and tangible personal prop erty at 50 per cent The commission concluded that there was an absolute want of equality in taxation This Inequality can not bo reme EquallzaI reason high rate of assessment In certain counties including tho city of St Louis Is enforced by the pressing de mand for revenue for local requirements The board can not raise tlms 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 power of taxation except as to the genera property ta 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 sundry corporations license and Inspec tion taxes and a collateral Inheritance tax What other forms of taxation may be adopted will be for the General Assembly in its discretion to de termine 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 sesslng 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 appor tloned to the counties the General Assembly should continue the present state tax upon such valuation and provide for its direct payment into the state treasury b b S- rL15L A TAXATION AND- REFORM IN OREGON i8tj8ttJ1J18tteJ1 J1t1et1e The 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 the Oregon constitu tion is proposed The citizens Interested in tax reform want an amendment giving the legislature the broad power of classifying the subject of taxation and deciding what will bo taxed for state and what for local pur posesOregon has had a taxation commis ston at work for somo tUne From Its report recently submitted the con elusion reached there is tnat the gen eral property tax is not working well and that it ought to be abolished In part at least It Is suggested that It would be well to have separate sources of revenue for state and for local government and the only way to attain this is by amending the con stitution IMPROVING TAX LAWS Taxation Is the subject of Investiga tion and discussion In many states and three reports have been made by special commissions which give an Interesting Indication of the present trend of expert opinion New Yorks commission recom mends the abolition of the tax on per sonal property and the Imposition of a progressive tax on Inheritances The opposellItoenue should go to the counties ox ciuslvely with the revenue from tIme tax on realty It Is further recom mended that all corporations and franchise taxes be reserved to the state Tile rnport of the Massachusetts commission proposes the taxation il direct as well as collateral Inherit ances of billboards and of stock transfers the retention of all fran chise exactions by the state and a graded tax on automobiles It is asserted that with these additional levies the Bay State could readily enough abolish the tax on realty as well as on personal property except for municipal purposes Here 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 11I MORTGAGE TAX New York has a mortgage recod- Ing tax law which has Increased the revenue from mortagcg taxation over the old system by 500 per cent and re suited In a reduction of Interest rates The principal virtue of the law Is that lt operation iloes not admit fraud sincre a mortgage to be legal must ho recorded and to bo recorded must pay the tax Small as th latter is in proportion to the 2 or 21h per cent formerly levied it has Increased the rovenunj because formerly morn than 80 per cent of the mortgages es caped taxation altogether The New York Sun reviewing tIme 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 J percent and 4 per cent ami perhaps establish them eventually at so Iowa rate as 3 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 He says The essence of the difficulty seems to lie In the attempt to make the con stitution deal with details rather than with principles The proper remedy In my Judge ment Is only to be found in an amendment of the constitution which shall give to the general assembly power to classify all proper subjects for tax- ation in such a manner that No subject shall escape its proper share of tire burden No subject of the same class shall bo taxed more than once The tax shall in all cases be mini form to subjects of the same class and Just to the subject taxed State of Washington Has a Constitu tional Amendment to Permit Classification of Property For Taxation Purposes In common with other states that are seriously considering the betterment of tax laws Washington cones to the front with a proposition to Amend its state constitution The pertinent paragraph in the pro posed amendment reads The power of taxation shall never be surrendered suspended or con tracted away Taxes shall be uniform upon the same class of subjects and shall be levied and collected for pub lic purposes A GOOD PLATFORM This platform has been adopted by tho Ohio State Board of Commerce as the slogan of its campaign for tax re form Our purpose Is to make Ohio tho best state in the Union In which to darn a living
