usually hereto fore going Republican in state anr national races Gov Bradley carried it over Hardin by 157 The result is all the more remark able in view of the fact tint Mc Creary carried the county in the Democratic primary last Fall by about 400 and Tuesdays returns indicate that the bad humor result theIIcauseOfmuch ever Mr Price was chairman of McCrearvs campaign in Boyle and in his Democratic loyalty mus have shown a spirit this year tha was attractive and animating It is a pleasure to note the lack of acrimony or charges of fraud and corruption when a contest is over in the

TAXES Various State Grangers On the Subject Demand For Study of the Question by the Farmer For His Own Interest Grangenlo study the real interests of the farmer has been taking a good deal of interest in the subject of taxation lately and some very pertinent ut terances on this question have been given out In the addresses of the Masters at annual sessions of various state Granges At a recent meeting of the Wash ington State Grange the Master gave considerable attention to the question of taxation He said In part I urge every Grange in this state to take up the study of taxation in all its phases earnestly and seriously during the coming year for I feel strongly that we farmers have hard ly realized the importance of thor oughly understanding the fundamental principles of taxation In considering the subject of state taxes in the brief time I have been able to give it since my mind has been fully aroused to its importance I have come to doubt very much the wisdom of our present method of as ArIof assessment and taxation on all property in the state according to its value in money This is the general property tax similar to Kentucky The above constitutional provision is similar to that of many of the west ern states and enjoins a system of taxation which has been tried in prac tically all the states of the Union It requires the application of the same rules of taxation to forms of property totally different in character Most of the older states such as New York Connecticut Massachusetts New Jer sey and Pennsylvania have constitu tions which impose no restraint on the power of the legislature or very little more restraint than that imposed by the federal constitution Those states have developed systems of taxation more in harmony with modern condi tionsThe attempt to tax all kinds of property by the same rules has in all times and in all countries imposed heavier burdens upon rural districts than cities and in a large degree has measured the tax to be paid by each citizen by the amount of his con sumption rather than by the oppor tunity he enjoys to acquire wealth under the protection of the state The plan adopted by our neigh bor Oregon is to apportion thE state tax in proportion to the reve nue raised by each county Oregon made the mistake of not carrying ou the principle to its logical conclusion The tax should be apportioned in pro portion to the entire revenue raised disItricts within each county It is very easy to see that the more highly developed and more densely populated a county may be the more money it needs for local purposes in proportion to its taxable values and tho greater is the power to pay taxes The tax apportioned in this manner will shift from the poorer and remote rural counties the burden they now bear and impose it on the more thickly settled and prosperous counties This change would do awa with the universal temptation to un dervalue property in ord r to shift the state tax o other communities A study of the experience of other states shows that one of the greatest evils undervaluelittion if not downright fraud The Ohio State Grange In Ohio they are proposing an amendment to the constitution that will per mit of a classification of the sources of revenue such as is now In effect in Pennsylvania The difficulty with tile Ohio constitution is exactly similar to that in Kentucky They are pro posing there an amendment to the constitution which will make it read this way Taxes shall be levied at ofInow uniform upon all classes of property the provision being similar to that of the constitution of Kentucky The Master Honorable F A Derthick commenting upon the proposed amend ment to the constitution said To pull up every stake In our con anIiadded in the selection of their representatives If classiflca tlon is to be the plan adopted It should be left to a commission of at least five members appointed by the governor one from each of the four sisters whose combined efforts have made us all we areone from manufacture one from mining one tram commerce one from agriculture Thi board should be reinforced by the appointment of a member of wellknown integrity and great legal ability The farmers are not committed to the idea of classification but we wish to Join in the study of tax revision The Ohio States Grange assembled in annual session December 11 to 13
