Scott president the Interstate Mississippi Improvement and Levee I association has called a conven I to be held at New Orleans I i the 27th of October for the purpose of making a concerted ellort to obtain an independent appropriation from congress for improvement of the Missis sippi river ln his address to people interested in the se curing of safe levees President Scutt says The people and the communities in these alluvial sections ve for ten years or more been carryingi a burdensome load of voluntarily imposed the coHDtructionand maintne of this long line of levees both sides of the River Tue work has reachel a point where even with the appropriations front lithet to ttime by eon S itt is beyond the means of people communities anti the affected Wo feel that IS a tonal Government should the control the construc anmaintenance of these levees as an aid to River improvement and for protection of the Valley from floods because among other rensonthe Mis River as distinguished all other rivers is a Nil Highway to the Sea and worlds markets and in the future to the Panama Cn naland because the floods which ravage these alluvial sec tions destroying life crops and property creating sorrow want and distress preventing communication and the transmission of mails and ruining business is the accumulation and drainage of water from the wa terways of the 20 States border ing on or contiguousi to the upper Mississippi River the Missouri and Ohio Rivers Independent all other considerations our pchl Sltoukl t t this cUI11U a In ntill cI 1f5IfrQm Yl awlltcrs q u o ttft l Cairo This protections just and right hid is neces saiyThe convention will bo of far reaching import to the people who reside within the flood limits of this river and should its promoters be successful in the accomplishment their purpose the benefits can hardly be overestimated as our people who re side in the bottoms below au j the northward of Hickmann cnn testify To this meeting the governors of the States interested repre sentatives of the cities in those States business bodies office rs of levee boards and others e art invited and it is hoped there will be a very general r sponse and n large atteudauc- There j is absolutely nothing of much importance to the people of the river country as the buildj ing and maintenance of tl levees There is no doubt but if those people will earnestly1 unite they can make the senators and representatives in congress from their respective States bend every energy to securing the appropriations and there can be no question about the su c cess of such an effort on the part of their congressional del nations The New Orleans con vention is the means by which the people can set in motion the train of forces that will bring about the great end in view In compliance with the request I for the appointment of delegates I to this convention President levyeo board who by the way has lien ICladeflltigilblCend that 1 levee should be built has appointed

not change In any manner the present method of assessing real estate for State and county taxes It must not be concluded that it will not greatly benefit the entire State It Is confidently believed that the new law will enable the assessors to disclose a vast amount of property n at present In reach of the assessors and if this result should follow there would be an opportunity for an Immediate and radical reduction in the ta rate for State and county purposes by which every taxpayer In the State would be directly benefited The main advantage would be in the inducement to new industries to locate In our midst new capital to seek Investment in our farms mines and rich timberlands and by thus increasing our wealth and Importance the result would invariably follow of a reduction in the tax rate It Is a very simp proposition that the more property to be taxed the lower the rate necesiary to secure the same revenue A recent change In the Kentuc Incorporation law has kept vast sums of money in our State which before the change referred to went to other States and the numerous enterprises 1now being Incorporated In Kentucky will continue to add to its revenue fall or time to come and If anyone h tiwchange there has been no discovery the fact If Kentucky could gain so much br a simple change in the statutes why should she not gain a great deal more by a change In the revenue law as proposed in the Amendment to be voted on In November This is a grave proposition and de sw moo Intelligent thou J Al fi it L l1li c IAN ADDRESSTOVOTERSOF j I Issued by State Committeejj on- CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT I Gentlemon At a Commercial Con ventlon of the State of Kentucky fculd i in the city of Louisville on the 2d 3d and 1th days of June 19M the under signed were appointed a committee for purpose of bringing the amendment to the constitution of the state iiI which Is to be voted upon at the No- emberelectton this year to the attention of voters of all parties In the state and obtain for It the necessary of votes to secure Its adoption The amendment is purely a nonpar liana measure vitally affecting the Interests of all citizens of the state no matter what their party affiliations or occupations may be or where their Dlnces of residence are situated The beneficial effects which will fol low the adoption of the amendment are so vast that they can hardly be estimated The evil that will result if by any chance the amandinent should fall of adoption will be disas trous in the extreme to the host in terests of the state The adoption of the amendment will not change in the least the present system of taxation In Kentucky for state and county purposes as It applies only to taxes levied by cities and towns for their own local purposes The manfacturers merchants and financial institutions in the cities and towns of our state are now tromen dourly handicapped in competing with those In other states by the cf our state constitution which requires the same ad valorem taxes to be levied on all personal propert- by cities and towns for their local1 purposes as is levied by them on real1 estate within their boundaries This provision does not exist In oth er states in which the competitors of eiear manufacturer merchants an financial institutions are located s that our people in these lines of bustl ness are at a great disadvantage iin competing vith those of other states and the result Iis that our existing 1 in dustriea do not grow as they should new industries are not established in eour state ILas large number and I- Y Im l tll U fnot possess ant fig 1 to o r n tfriiiT advantages but In which taxation is not nearly so burdensome and oneroust as in Kentucky The provision of our constitution which the amendment after its adop lion will cure also operates to drly capital from our midst and compels that which remains with us to us higher interest rates when we o0 row money than we would have to1 pay if money used in banking and financial operations was not taxed so exorbitantly for municipal purposes Farmers and country merchants of Kentucky dont make the mistake of thinking the adoption of this amendment ef too constitution will not bene ficially affect you ouretowns and cities to grow so as to give employment to more men if you want new Industries to be established em wanthLmore ducts and more buyers at your coun ters IIf you want lower interest rates when you borrow money If you want 0 lessen your state and county taxes In a word if you want as much proof s pertly throughout the length and breadth of our grand old commonwealth as prevails in other states then yourxneighbors to vote for it Every existing factory enlarged and ovary new factory brought Into Ken lucky through this amendment to our constitution means I i Lower State and County Taxes for all the property thus brought in will go to swell the assessments for leistate and county purposes which will enable the rate to be reduced Let the amendment

election this fun and remarked that there was a uigger in the wood pile The nigger has shown its head and an ugly one it iis proposed constitutional amendment iis nothing more nor loss than a scheme of the money leaders and brokers to es cape the just taxation of their personal propertysuch as bonds note stocks cash and other items in which deal and should be voted agains- every elector regardless of party a tiom who has the welfare of the state and the equal burden of taxation at heart pInIt voters of Kentucky which appears in another column numerous subterf and generalizations and efforts to the real meaning f the amendment are on resorted to the object being to mislead I the voter and by flattering promises itt- t tr of an extremely indefinite hamster J I tI f r 3- kJ I Illure him into the trap to cast his ballott against his own interests They have couched feathers and sent theforthone thing that will prevent the st from being violently hurled to the demo nition bow wows Ghen the fact is tare he trying to convince the voters v rhoof pay n personal property tax outside the cities and all who pay taxes on real property that they can become rich by reducing taxes on the personal property of the money lenders brokers etc who reside in the cites A little thought will convince the most obtuse that t position is an untenable ore Although efforts have been made by peoples tax themselves rich none hate ever y sncceeded The state requires a certain amount of money for administration pnrpo which is raised by levying taxes on both real and personal property If that t ation is removed or partly removed from one it must of necessity increase it proportionately on the other If the amendment carries taxation on personal property in cities will be reduced and in proportion as it is reduced so must it be increased on the remaining taxable property throughout the state 1The man who deals in money and nego tiable paper in the city will thus s the burden of taxation from himself to the shoulders of the farmer the u chant the artisan and his less fortunate brother the banker of the town and havillageThat part of the address which says that new industries are not established in our state in as large number as in other states is the veriest claptrap i ongthan to fool the voter In the four years preceding 1899 new capital to the ex tenttif 820526940 was invested in new industries in this state while dart the four years since that time new cap hullo the amount at 99002795 has been invested an increase of 09000t 000 in the four years or afloat seven and a quarter millions a year an amount proportionately equal to thathis any other state in the union show that our industries are not growing that capital is afraid to invest or that we are so far behind other states The proposed amendment cons nothing whatever to recommend it to the great army of common people It is in fee simple but an effort of the escERbe turned down as it probably will The ad

oUthbtutifcajcvvhojtiJildjforcQjue country folks to bear that nIiicb BMTBld foi willingly borne by themselves TI trick will fail The voters have beguu to investigate the proposed amendment thandthey readily see the evils that wo I follow its adoption and proclaim tb selves as unalterably opposed to it The Courier trusts and believes t the country press of the state will t this matter up in the interest of its constituency the great common peo pie The measure can be easily de feated by concerted action on the of the country editors of the state Each and every one of us should use such

is administration and one which has greatly disturbed the Repub edlicans was the collection of the State of Kentuckys Civiland Spanish War Claim from the U S Government With the money which was collected the Kentucky soldiers who served in the Spanish war received back pay which they had never eXc wU81rightfullI with the money which had been due the state since the Civil warn the entire state debt was wiped ut While Gov Beckhnm has been criticised for the payment of a fee of f71 000 to Capt C C Gal houn for the collection of this money it must be remembered that tin payment of this sum was approved by an act of the Kentucky legislature and that the fee was much lower than ier numerous states whose govern rs are republican paid for the service It must also he remembered that for 40 years prior to Gov of Beckhams administration ef forts had boon made to colled this money and all had failed Therefore while 71000 was paid Capt C C Calhoun for the collection of over 1300000 Gov Beckham succeeded in do ing something whichI numerous I overnors and members of conpI gross had failed to do I During the administration ofn Gov Bradley he exoended at IIIIHI something with this claimrJ These suns were paid to D R Collier his Adjutant General and W S Forrester his Assistant of Adjutant General When Gov Becklmm came into office he set about the col lection of this large claim whichv had been so long standing I Capt Calhoun was selected and the governor made a contract with him by which he should re ceive 71000 in round numbers for his services in the event he succeeded in collecting the claim This contract was submitted to j and approved by the general assembly After many months of untiring is and intelligent labor the claim was collectedand 182899985 was turned over to the state less Cst ot collection The fee paid for this extraordinary service was in the opinionS of the governor and the general assembly entirely reasonable It was less than has been paid by any other state for the collec 5 tion of like claims Time follow jug summary shows the amounts collected on similar claims for other states and the fees paid such senicesi1 Statement showing amount-

government but has been allowed by the Auditor for the War Department for a few dollars more than the amount above stated tSmt has been brought against the State to recover on this contract If the claim had been collected at 25 per cent the i usualrate which other states paid it would have cost the state least 33099983 The cost under thE contract made by Gov Beckham is 7119995 or a saving of 25979988 over the fees paid by most of the states If Gov Bradley had succeeded collecting this claim in the first year of his administration and it had been applied to the payment of the obligations of the state then out standing the state would have saved at least 250000 of interest If this claim was so easily collected and f i only required clerical labor why did not Coy Bradley who F a lawyer of marked ability and long experience have it attend to Why did he pay Jut large sums for interest on the state debt and borrow 500000 on the bonds of the state if he knew any means by which this claim could have been collected He knew of the existence of this because he approved vouchers for 575 for expenses for having it investigated I The republican platform de the fee paid Calhoun as unnecessary unjust and exorbitant For the refutation of this charge we appeal to the action of the republican states as shown in the above table fDWELLINGS NEEDED In last weeks Courier appeared an article on the scarcity of houses in town and the suggestion that it might be a good investment for some of our wealth citizens to build u number of dwell togs for renting purposes This sug gestion ia not trade in a spirit of preII snmptuousuftw but iis made in earnest iiesa grog sincerity Owing to a seeming in respect to the duration the boom which is slowly hot mirely overtaking us there is an apparent hes itancy on the part of local capital toIinvent in real curate and building propositions There are whey sifted to tho bottom no ro isouablo grounds for un certuil1t in tho quality or security ofc investments made along this line In vcstiuation will show conclusively to pven the most skeptical that the steady growth which Hickman is enjoying at is not of the mushroom species that what comes is here to star and isjmerely a flash in the pan The nature of the growth just now much in evidence which is principally the increased output of the facto attended bj largely augmented forces of men win must have places of residence makes the provision of such 1 residences ahnst obligatory on the part lIic man Tlie question how long this population win land employment seems to be the stumbling block in the J way and has prevented some from in sting It is believed by those who have not 1 looked into it that this increased force cannot last longer than two years but wo have it on the authority of Mr C L Walker resident manager of tne Men i gel Box Factory that the employment JJ- of the increased force which is responsi ble for this article will endure for fif teen years at least and possibly much longer There are two very good rea sons why tho twoyear theory is incom patiblo in this connection one of which that this factory has eunuch timber on the ground to run it for a longer pe riod than two years and there are yet untold millions of teat still standing that ate accessible The other is that it is nut within the hounds of reason to suppose that the Mengel Box Factory would 150000 in improving a plant that would run but two or even five years Such n large outlay by this concern shonld of itself alloy all fears of its life Tho increase will be between 200
