something to think about when it says The President has been trust busting for seven years and if any private citizen in this whole broad land has received any benefit from his exer toonsif the price ofanyone of trust ntade articles has been cured by the trustbusting which has so delighted the country then the market reports do not disclose the fact Naaman the Syrian reject ed the prophets receipt for curing his leprosy because it was to sim pIe It was to wash to be clean He demanded something spectacu lar He wanted Elisha to comes out to him and stand and call upon the name of the Lord and strike hIs hand over the place And so the real cure of the monopoly that is afflicting the country is too sim ple to impress the public What is monopoly It is the absence of competition Tben why not in the name of reason and common sence take down the bars and let competition enter A great fine may be imposed upon the Standard Oil Company But what will it avail It will simply result in a higher price ofoil and so the peo pie will lose instead of finding re lief in that kind of trustbusting If the sugar trust is exacting an unfair price for sugar why not let the German refineries complete

Many States Taking Steps to Abolish Old Methods In Favor of Better Kentuckys Case- Ilhrre Is no question of greater im port nce before the people of Ken tacky at present than the question of taxation Those who have interested themselves in studying the growth of pastIyear and watched the attempts to develop Its resources have been deeply impressed with the fact that our tax laws form a most serious obstacle to succeess So deepseated is this con ofIto be drawing near when the people of Kentucky will at last make up their minds that nothing is more worthy of thelr serious attention than this tay question As a rule they concern themselves with it only when the as sessor makes his annual tail or wher they walk up to the tax collectors of fice to settle Then they are fully er suaded that the whole tax system is wrong but as soon as the tax has been paid and the smart of it has been for gotten the whole question is apt to be passed up again without anothe bought until another assessment and paying time rolls around It is important to Kentucky that the people of the state should realize tha taxation bears in a most vital way upon the prosperity of the state and In order that taxation may be wiser adjusted it is necessary for the intelligent people of the state to turn themselves to a careful study of the whole question 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 it invited to a community or driven from It industries will flourish or be destroyed competition with other states may be possible or may be rendered out 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 failed to recommend anything more than an attempt to raise more revenues along the lines of the old revenue bill In its report to the senate the committee showed that It had very seriously considered the advisability of recommending more radical changes in our system but it reported the conclusion that it was not at tha time advisable to do more than attempt 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 en titled to a longer experiment And there Is much to be said against 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 liderlng the tax situation It held hearings In various parts of the state it which hearings thero appeared hi fore the committee by Its Inv ation representative farmers and business men to present their views on the sub ect of taxation The committee could got fall to be impressed with the gen oral dissatisfaction with the system In force in Kentucky and yet they did not then think the time ripe to recom nend a departure The net result of the committees leglslaturand to make one further des satisfactoryuniform

that he hadnot only stolen his wife but had stolen his mony and watchand that he Pennington and Cbappels wife were living in Hamilton happily and easily on the stolen money and that he Chappel could go to work and make some more money for when the present supply was ex hausted they would need it By reason of this letter Pennington supposedly confessing the crime he was arrested and lodged iu tine Danville jail where he was confin ed for seyeral mouths Publicsen liment was naturally very strong against Pennin gton mob violence even being threatened The first trial came on after several months had passed and sentiment against Pennington still run high but his trial was begun and as soon as Chappel went upon the witness inlPenningtons other facts brought to light and one of the facts were that the let ter was not written by Penniugton but was written by a nephew of Chappel When the second trial came on last Tl1csday this fact was promptIJyin jail Pennington and his attor ney CC

Thissorf of unrest as to taxation matters is widespread In Ohio the agedinto the Ohio state constitution There is also a tax commission which has an official existence engaged in hold Ing hearings all over the state and gidng itizens of every occupation a chance to air their views on the sub jectrhe difficulty in Ohio is very KentuckyTheyoral propert tax They are pushing an amendment which will allow the legislature to separate the sources of revenue that is to raise the state revenue from certain classes of prop erty leaving other classes of property onlyOhiomont to its constitution along these lines but has failed but sentiment in the state now if an opinion may be thetaxfavor cf the amendment Missouri Is Busy In Missouri a special tax commis Elm of w ich Fredoiick N Hudson was clairman recommended to the legislature the sepiration of the sources of state and local revenue and proposed a constitutional amendment providing ior such separation legislaturecul option in matters of taxation The amendment was adopted by the last legislature of Missouri and will levoted on by the people of tIre state at the next general election This amendment provi les that the sources of state and local revenue shall be separated by the year 1909 and thatthereafter the counties in the state may tax or exempt for local purposes any class of propertv in the dlscre tion of the county court It will be ob served that both Ohio and Missouri separatingThis is the system that has been In successful operation for many years in Pennsylvania and it seems the logical end only satisfactory solution of the present complicated tax situation Minnesota Makes Progress The people ot Minnesota at the last election held in that state ratified a practicallythe 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 intc effect the provisions of the constitu tonal 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 imposed a recording tax on mort gages of onehalf oj one per cent In this mortgage tax Minnesota is follow ing the experiment successfully tried by the stato of Nw York Under this plan the tux of onehalf of one per cent is collected when the mortgage is re corded and the mortgage is thereafter exempt from taxation Old mortgages may be registered on payment of half of one per cent tax and are there after also exempt from further taxa tion In both Minnesota and New mortgageshas verydecidedwhich Kentucky Is now trying the chief visible effect of which at pres ent is t tax holders of mortgages who exemptlllghoJrlersproperty who live outside the slate In Illinois the Civic Federation of Chicago has procured the introduc tion of an amendment to the const tiition of the slate very similar to thai 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 mistirc affect lug time method of taxing Intangible personality One result of separating different kinds of property for differ ent rates of taxation and for different purposes that the tax burden CUll In this way be just to each class or- property 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 just been overhaul Ing its tax laws The tax commission of California has just made its report In the state of New York a tax reforn league has been at work for nearl fifteen ytarr with the result that souu very wise amendments to the tax laws of that state have been made needs Thorough Study questionthe light of tire experience of other states as well as with due regard to its own experience more than toes Kentucky For fifteen years since the new constitution was adopted wo have striven hard to realize that dream uniformity In taxation wujch animated the makers of time new constitution We have not succeeded In doing this It is true the revenues of the state have Increased bill the tax burden has been extremely heavy on some clarses of pronerty while some classes of property have gone al most act free of mopey stock and bonds reported for taxa tion h ridiculously small The falsity of tiv tax returns hntrays itself upo comparison wth the reports oL the deposits in thin banks The only kind of personal property that does not escape taxation is that visible tangible personal property found chiefly on the farm The farmer can not hide his hoss cattle and farming Implements so he has to while the man in town can hide his money or his stocks and bonds and escape his share of the burden This will slways be the case while human nature remains as it is It is incumbent upon Kentucky to find some va of deriv- Ing a revenue from this elusive class of property It will probably take a long time for Kentucky to reach the point of believing in the policy of separating the sources of revenue selecting one class of property from which to raise Its stat revenues another class of prop erty from which to raise Us city rEV- enues Unless the experience of all other states is to be belied by the ex perience of Kentucky that 15 what went to come to some time though it may be far In the future We can not welt continue to adhere to a system 1statesput us in the of handicapping our property owners of every class with a burdnsome tax system which will seriously Injure them in the sharp competition with less heavily bur dened
