this year on the farms Of course the farmers are proud of their crops and the tradesmen are proud of them and chants rejoice and the m nufacturI- ers are glad Proud of the great crops Certainly It is strange that one should ask such a ques tionThe crops are bumper ones this year They will surpass those of i9o6 by several millions in value And the crop of last year was no small onecertainly not one to be ashamedof In all the world there isno coun try where such great varied and valuable crops are produced as on the American farms Markets are near every acre of this land The railroads absorb the surplus and transport it the market centers of the country or the world And that which is left behind will not be sold for a cent less than what it could be sold for farther away or putting it in another way nothing will be shipped away for less than it will bring at home In other words good prices prevail every where The good crop m ansan abundance of distributed new wealth The insistence on knowin g what is in the sausage or canned mince pie has not yet subsided A lot of people who have had spasms over the packing house revelations might not feel so touchy about the subject if the limelin could shed a few rays into their own kitchens But ones own slack ways are not near so censurable as those the other fellow isguilty of Having sold ay stock ot good at Orlando all parties owing

Deserted Village This volume is one of a series of English Classics published by the American Book Company and de signed for students of English and especially to aid in preparing them for college entrance It is no longer considered sufficient for pu pilsto read the fragments of litera ture contained in the best of school readers to study a little grammar and to learn a few rules ofrhetoric as a preparation for their college course in English It is conceded that a language is best acquired by means of its literature and by studying complete productions rather than abridged selections In no other way can the cumulative culture and living experience of the race of the race be brought in to the conscousness of the new gen eration and impress upon the char acter of the young the currents of thought that have constantly moved forward mens ideals and influenced their lives their deeds and their accomplishments We commend this volume of gateway series to young students price 45C This is

System Has Increased His Burden Figures That Show Farm Property Pays More Than Its Fair Pro portion of State Revenue When the last constitutional con vention in Kentucky drew up the present organic law of the state it found existing throughout the state a gen eral feeling of dissatisfaction because through the faulty administration of the old revenue law one exemption after another had crept in until the told system was full of inequalities The ion ntion desired to perfect a tax system which it believed would ecure absolute uniformity Jn the bur den of taxes It therefore Inserted in the constitution section 171 which says that taxes shall be uniform upon aii classes of property within the ter ritorial limits of the authority levying the tax THs was done in the belief that unlforrijty of method would produce uniformity of result and of bur denIt was urged Jn behalf of this proposed section that it was demanded in justice tc the farmer In order that since his property was of a visible and tangible nature and could not es cape assessment all other property should be put in the same boat No one ever disputed that this ought to be done The only dispute was as to whether or not it could be done by this method It was contended that certain classes of property which were of a kind that could be con cealed would escape assessment ani putfupon them was too heavy and that the result would be that the real es tate and such visible personal prop erty as the farmers live stock and the merchants goods and the house holders furniture would bear an un due proportion of the burden of rais sing the public revenue But the general property tax was imbedded In our constitution and wo have been trying it harder than ever jfor the sixteen years that have elapsed since the constitution was adopted and it has proved anything brut uniform and has not served t distribute the burden of taxation equally Under this system a great deal of property in our cities escapes taxation In spite of the activity of auditors agents much of it is not brought to light The consequence of this h that an unfair burden of the support of the state falls upon those who rwn property that can not be hidden away and these people are chiefly the farmers The farmer pays more tax on personal property In proportion to real estate than does the city man under the present system In the five counties in the state which contain all the cities of the first and second classes Jefferson Kenton Campbell Fay ette and McCracken the assessed per tonality Is 20 per cent of the total as sessment In the rest of the state it 824 jjer cent 2tthe total assessment The Tve counties named Which may be called urban counties contain GG2 per cent of all the realty in the state and assess only 31 per cent of all the personalty The amount of money bonds ac counts and similar personalty as sessed by these counties is less than 7 per cent of their total assessment In the rest of the state the amount of such property asssessed is nearly 11 per cent of the total Manifestly it is true that the man in the country does not find it so easy to conceal his personal property and he has not the incentive furnished by a high tax rate to conceal it In the county of Jefferson contain ing the city of Louisville personalty is 225 per cent of the total assess menteIn Kenton county containing the city of Covington personalty is 112 per cent of the total in Camp bell with the city of Newport It is 16 per cent Fayette county with Lexington does better its personalty being 24 per cent of the total but it Is wall known that the rural portions of Fayette county contain an amount of wealth unusual in any agricultural communityOn hand take the follow ing counties which are distinctly agricultural and note how much larger the percentage of personalty than In the strictly urban counties Garrard county 25 per cent Allen county 26 per cent Marion county 305 per cent Adair county 31 per cent Knott county 336 per cent Monroe county 36 per cent Through the entire state the rule generally holds and where the contrast is not so marked the exceptions will generally be found due to unus ually high valuation of farm lands Who Pays the Freight There is still another way of ascer aining that the present system does ot make things easier for the farmer For the year 1906 the assessment of the state divides itself as follows Per Cent Farm lands 43 Farmers personalty live stock implements etc 71 Moneys etc assessed to farmers 26 Total for farmers 527 Town lots 325 Town personalty 148 Total town property 473 In arriving at the percentage of moneys etc set down as given in by farmers for taxation only that given n by counties having no town larger Jhan the sixth class is included and A small percentage of this character fjt personalty given In by counties hayjng larger towns and yet distinctly Agricultural The figures probably are under rather than over the mark Fart property therefore by a con servative estimate pays nearly 53 per cent of the state taxes exclusive of franchise taxes while town property pays only about 47 per cent Of tho state revenue collected by the sheriffs 43pers cent by town lots about 9 per cent by money and securities about 71h her cent by live stock and farmers Implements etc and 6 per cent by other personalty It is time the Ken tucky farmer realized that the present system bears heavily upon hyn Equivalent to 10 Per Cent Income Tax The tax commisison of the state of California has this to say about the operation of the general property tax on farmers in that state The taxes paid by farmers In Cali fornia are equivalent to an income tax of 10 per cent This is In contrast to many other industries for example the taxes paid by manufacturers which amount only to 2 per cent on Income The persons engaged In agriculture with an average yearly income of about 500 pay 50 per capita per annum in taxes The per sons engaged in manufactures with an average annual income of 870 pay 1750 per capita per annum The California system here denounce ed Is the same that we have In Ken tucky and from which the legislature can afford us no relief without a change of the constitution FARMERS IN MANY STATES j i WANT RELIEF FROM UN FAIR TAXATION 2 + 4+++ Constitutional amendments are be- Ing given thorough attention by farmers of the country In Ohio Hon F A Derthick master of the State Grange in discussing a proposition to permit of classification of the sources of tax revenue said There is a common ground upon Which we can all stand We must have in increasing amount of revenue and that means a more just return of the property In the state Where is the injustice of laying a reasonable tax on the deposits reported by the banks of the state the same to bf charged to depositors True not al1 depositors are residents of Ohio but they enjoy the protection of our laws and in large measure draw their in terest from our people This could at least be done with resident depositors and they would be relieved from the temptation to commit the crime of perjury The Kentucky Grange The Kentucky State Grange had this same subject before it at the meeting held in Frankfort October 21 to 23 1907 lIrF P Wolcott Master of the State Grange discussed the question In a very Interesting manner as order has been most active In behalf of the just regulation of taxation recognizing that the farmer Is losing more from our present sys tern and has more to gain from the establishment of a just and equitable system of taxation than has any other class of citizens The order in rep resenting the agricultural classal ways endeavors to be fair and hon orable With all other Interests and has the right to demand like treat ment In return In nearly every state In the Union the cry has been loud against unjust revenue laws and steps are being taken to remedy the evilsVarious State Granges have by their action declared it wrong to leggy iblateHnlo trio organic Jaws oTa state exemptfromvast sums in the possesion of the wealthy and often kept by them in visible thus leaving the small hold ings of the masses of people of moderate means to bear the burden of doubled taxation The present constitution of Ken tucky binds us to the general prop erty taxthat is to the system of same tax upon all classes of property for all purposes There should be an amendment to our con stitution which will allow the legisla ture to separate the sources of reve nuethat is to raise the state reve nue from certain classes of property leaving other classes of property to be taxed for local purposes only It has been argued bv some that this would throw too much power into the hands of the legislature Should such an amendment prevail then would it devolve upon the voters of the state to pay stricter attention to the selection of their representatives than has obtained in the past in both city and country The Kentucky State Development association and other organization have honored the Grange by placing upon its joint committee on taxation a member of this order as represen tative of the agricultural interests of the state and it ig important that the views and demands of the farmers be clearly defined at this state session It is recommended that this body promptly and emphatically take ac tion in favor of just and equitable revenue laws and for the establish ment of an official tax commission to be composed of five membersfour greatIrity and for superior legal ability TAX CONFERENCE Students

governors of all the states am1 it will in addition b attended by many tax experts from all over the country The discussions will take a wide range covering every phase of the question of taxation Such a gathering as that which is to be held in Columbus will result in disseminating a great deal of infor matlon on the subject of methods of taxation and is bound to stimulate still further the interest In this re term Governor Beckham has ap pointed three gentlemen to represent the state of Kentucky It is very much to be hoped that they will attend ar Kentucky has as great an interest as any other state in tins question and very much greater interest than some other states that have made more progress than we have toward a bet ter tax system The Proposed Reforms IJhe purpose of the conferences are thus announced To secure an authoritative and an exhaustive discussion of the subject of state and local taxation in all of its details- To produce a volume of proceedings ontaining the best thought of those who by reason of their tj eeial Jnca tional training and practical experi ence are qualified to speak with authority upon the special branch of the subject they may elect to discuss To furnish to the members of the legislatures of the several states a concrete tip todate statement of the economic and business principles that should be applied in state and local tax legislation to be used as a guide for their action when consideringpro posals to improve the tax laws cf their respective states and in the adminis sameI secure the applica correct and business principles in all tax legislation and thus develop a high degree of uniform ity in the tax laws of the several states By securing uniformity in state tax laws to eliminate the evil of changes in legal residence and in the location of business undertakings induced by differences in state tax laws and to create conditions of high value in aid of the effective and economical man agement of the
