F. Morse, a Now Englandcr, who had been graduated from "Ynlo at 18 and had, llko Robert Fulton, gono to England to study art under Benjamin West. In his spare moments ho dabbled, for recreation. experiments. On tho In electrical home-bounship ho hnd met a Dr. Jackson, who had interested him still further ln this subject. Tho theory with which Morse ontertatned the oth-o- r passengers was as follows: It has been proved that an electrical current will pass instantaneously along a wire of any length. If this current is Interrupted at any point n spark will appear. Why not lot such a spark or succession of sparks represent some part of speech a letter, T l number or other Tho passengers laughed at tho odd notion nnd most of them soon forgot It. But Morse wns so captivated by tho idea that ho threw over his artistic career and set to work at once on the electrical Invention which ho called "tho Ho sacrificed his means of livelihood by doing this. For four years he worked In poverty nnd want, and at tho end of that time his invention was complete.

Every one seomod to look on tho telegraph as a useless, impracticable fantasy. Back to America came Morse, and onco more went to Washington, whoro he moved heaven nnd earth to get congress to appropriate $30,000 for tho telegraph. His efforts seemed In vain, nnd on tho last evening congress was ln session in 1843 ho went to his lodgings heartbroken and without hope. This was the lowest ebb of his fortune Without prospects, penniless, more than 60 years old, his Inrejected, vention everywhere ho soemed to be ono of the century's most abject failures. Early next morning a young girl called to seo him. She was the daughter of the commissioner of patents, and sho brought tho discouraged Inventor glorious news. At mldnlghL almost on tho minute of adjournment congress hnd voted Morse tho $30,000 appropriation. The work of building the line from Washington to Baltimore was begun at onco. In a year it was complete. In May, 1844, the first message was sent It was dictated by the girl who had brought Morse, nows of the appropriation, and It read: "What hath God wrought!" Now that the schemo was so triumphant a success it was at once adopted all over the world. But Dr Jackson, who had talked over tho subject with Morse on shipboard so many years before, now brought suIL claiming credit for all tho latter had accomplished.

We ns I have shown, to tnx raving deposit ylf I ling three per cent by the same and nt tno same rate that wo uro In taking any other form nf property which pays fifteen or twenty or twenty-fli- e cent and which la fixed nnd vial- le In It rhnracter.

The State Is rtnln nf tho revenue, since It Is c '0'- nt to take a reasonable percentage of thi- - Income derived from the deposit, and It hafl no difficulty In collecting It. It not forced to nttempt to find this pr txrty In the hnnds of tho Individual holdtT Can Oe Drought Out. It may be urged that lowering the rate on propertyif this character will not bring It otr for taxation. We enn only point to the experleoco of other States In thl resiH-c-t Human nature Is pretty mtn h the same everywhere Most men wmild rather lie honest about their If they can lie so without suf-f- i ring confiscation The chnngo of rate on thl class of property ha multiplied the revenue from It many fold In the State of Maryland within recent years, and made possible the reduction of tho Slate tax rate tn IS cents. Our Remedy In Kentucky. nut we are not nt llticrty in tho State of Kentucky tn adopt any nf the method that have afforded relief to other State, because of tho restriction put upon our LeKlslature by tho constitution of the Btate. We are tied hand and foot to the general property tnx system. I do not believe In criticising without proposing a retm-dIt Is not proposed that there should 1' any sudden and radical change of the revenue system Immediately upon the adoption of tha proposed amendment tn the Constitution of the State If the legislature proposes the amendment to the constitution and the jieople ratify It nt the poll, the result up to that point will be merely tha' th Iegtlatitrc i put In a poiltton where It can tiegin the work of revising our tax system The amendment doe not mean "must " It means "may." 1 It Is wlae the Legislature will revise slowly Tho government must go on. lUvenue must lie had. Itevlalon must be cautious, it stiouiit be assisted by a tax commission gathering Into act formation for the Legislature upon. It should be along n consistent line designed to end In a system under which tho sources of revenue shall certain property being taxed for Stnte purposes, and for Stnte purposes only; other property for Municipal purpose and for Municipal purposes only; still other property for County purposes and for County purposes onlyall property being taxed at some rato for some purpose and for ono purposo only, that rate being aa fairly as possible adjusted to the normal Incomo from property Of that class and collected by the method that will yield tho largest return. la tha proposition In a nutshell. That It Is not theory. It Is bvdng successfully States have now so done. Fourteen shaped Utelr constitution thnt they may do It. Anil nt every step of tho progress from the old method to tho new, t. work would be In tho hands of tin Chosen reprceentatlvea of the people. The Goal To Be Reached. Tho formulating of tha new system and the working out of Its details houi but always be done most cautiously, with a view to finally reaching a point where the 8tate would ralso Its entire revenues from ono class of property, tho Counties from another class of property, and the Cities from still another, under such a system, when com. pletely In effect, farming lands would be taxed only for local purposes. They pihould not pay a cent of tax for Stn'e No kind of property taxed for tato purpose should be taxed for local purposes, nnd none taxed for County or City purposes should bo taxed for State purposes. lly this separation of sourceaof revenue, ww avoid thnt piling up of one tax rato on another which make tho burden so heavy In Kentucky, and by this classifying of property according to Its capacity for standing n tax proportionate, to the Income It yields, wo remove tho Incentive whloh our present system furnishes to undervaluation nnd evasion and perjury. I nm not pointing out an Ideal or untried system. This system ha been folbeing followed successful lowed nnd elsewhere. Thero Is no reason why It should not prove equally successful In Kentucky. It holds out tho hope ot relief. I trust I have mnde It plain that tax revision does not mean exemption for nnyliody. It means merely n fair apportionment of the burden ns to kinds of property. It means nn abandonment of a system thnt promises Ideal unlformltt In theory, but In practice has resulted In tho grossest unfairness to nil visible forms of property nnd tho practical exemption nf millions. It means putting In the hands of the legislature tho power to vary the rato ami tho method nt all times to suit changed nnd changing forms of properly, so that If property will not stand tn be.taxcd by ono method, wo may reoch It by another; nnd so that If ono rate Is found too high for a class of property (having reference to tho Income that property yields) a different rati may be tiled In the Interest nf larger revenue ns well ns of fairness. So thnt. In short, wo may bo freo to deal with n question of such Importance, at nil times ns nny business man won deal with the constantly recurring problems In his business life, changing h: methods tn tnke ndvnntngc of his own experience and tho experience of othors. and ot nil of the Information ho can get on tho subject. 1910 Contrast thero amount of Farslcal Result. hrnlurky or Hickman Lumber and Planing Mill Co.
