again elected Speaker of the House over John Sharp Williams the Democratic candi date Vice President Fairbsuks sounded the gavel which put ink operation the brawl and brains of the Senate Following are a few hints of the main features of the i Presidents message In no nation are the fundament al business conditions sounder than in ours at this very moment and it is foolish when such is the case for people to hoard money in stead of keeping it in sound banks for it is such hoarding that is they immediate occasion of money stringency There must be no halt in the healthy constructive course of action which this nation has elect ed to pursue and has steadily pur sued during the last six years as 1 shown both in the legislation of j j1 the Congress and theadministralion of the law by the Department of fl1tustIce Corporation and labor union alike have come to stay Each if properly managed is a sourse of good or evil Whenever in either there is evil it should be properly held to account but it should receive hearty encouragement so long as it is properly managed- A combination should not be tolerated if it abuses the power ac quired by combination to the pub lie detriment National control would be benefit of every well managed railway We need a greater elasticity in our currency provided of course that we recognize the even great er need of a safe and secure currency There must always be the most riged examination by the 1 national authorties Provision should be made for an emergency Vt currency The emergency issue c r should or course be made with an j effective guaranty and upon con ditions carefully prescribed by the Government Such emergency issue must be based on adequate seen rities approved by the Government and must be issued under a heavy tax This wculd permit currency being issued when the demand for it was urgent while securing its retirement as the demand fell off This county is definitely committed to the protective system and any effort to uproot it could not but cause widespread indust rial disaster When our tax laws are revised the question of income tax and an inheritance tax should receive the careful attention of our legislators The course of the Department of Justice during the last few years has been such as to make it evident i pat no man stands above the law The two great evils in the execu tion of ourcriminal laws to day are sentimentality and technicality I I earnestly commend to the at t tention of the Congress that some- wayr maybe devised which will lira Jt the abu e of injunctions and pro tect those rights which from time to time it unwarrantably invades The principles of theeight hour day should as rapidly and as far as practicable be extended to the en tire work carried on by the Gov ernment v I renew my previous recommen dation that the Congress favorably consider the matter of creating the machinery for compulsory investi contragatiouofversies as lire of sufficient magnitude and of sufficient concern to the people of the country as a whole to WraQt the Federal Gov ernment in taking ucfctuu It Is well to provide that eorpo rations shall not contribute to prei dental or natioualc13mpaignsan futhermore to provide for the PUbi licatiou of both contributions and expenditures Our great river systems should be developed as national water highways the Mississippi Aith its jmJIportancealthough there are many others of importanceNot there is not now but there never has been any other nation in the world so wholly free from the evils of militarism as hours It is evident That it is folly foi this nation to base any hope of se curing peace ou any international agreement as to the limination o armaments Such being the fact it would be most unwise for us to stop the upbuilding of our navy In foreign affairs this country steady policy is to behave toward other nations as a strong and sell respecting man should behave to ward the other men with whom he is brought in contact BUODHEAD Miss

lJNjU T TAX PiAfJ TheTax ommissionars of the States Agree tn Denouncing General Tax System Like OursFujiof Evils In Operation In discussing tax questions in Ken tucky and elsewhere frequent refer ence is made to the general property tax This is the kind of system Kentucky has in force It is the sys tern that is in force in most of theI states Briefly the general property tax is a uniform ad valorem tax levied upon all classes of property alike regard less of the nature of the earning ca pacity or of the tangible or intangible character of the property The taxin authority of a state for instance will levy a tax of 50 cents This tax is ta fall upon every kind of property alike Everything of value whether real es tate money in bank notes bonds mortgages shares of stock live stock wagons carriages jewelry furniture any sort of personal property or fran chises of corporations is called prop erty and must pay this tax This is the general property tax The general property tax is therefore the levying of a uniform ad valorem tax on all property for all purposes As distinct from this system is the system of classifying property raising state revenues from one kind of property county revenues from another kind of property and city revenues from still another kind and also the raising of revenues by special taxes of various kinds The argument in the tax wod today is between these two systems of raising the public rev enueThe Kentucky system is the general property tax Our constitution binds us to the levy of a uniform ad valorem tax on all property of every kind for all purposes If a piece of property located in the city is taxed for one purpose it must be taxed for all If it is a propertyearning per cent return to its owner it must pay the same tax as property earning 20 per cent If it is a kind that can be removed or hidden it is taxed the game as real estateif it can be found No distinction is mad on any account whatever all property must pay the same rate This sounds like a very fair system and in theory it Is fairness itself But its operation in the opinion of those who have studied the question not in Kentucky only but in every state in the Union has not borne out the promise made for it The system has been abandoned in Pennsylvania Connecticut Delaware New Jersey V5sr coiiain Oregon and partially in a num ber of other states The rapid ten dency of the states is to get away f om it as impossible and impracti cable Nearly every state that has a tax commission has declared itself very frankly on this question A large number of states have within the last few years apppointed tax commissions to carefully study the metaods of raising public evenucs and almost in variably th reports of these commissions have denounced the general property tax system the system that wo have in Kentucky as being absurd impossible of enforcement and unjust in its operation Denounced by Supreme Court The supreme court of the United States leads the way in denouncing lhe system In its opinion in the casss of the Pacific Express Co vs Se belt the court said ThIsconrt has renatcdy aI down the doctrine that diversity of taxation both with respect to the amount imposed and the various spe cios of property selected either for bearing its burdens or being exempt from them is not inconsistent with a perfect uniformity and equality of tax ation in the proper sense of those terms and that a system which im poses the same tax upon every species of property irrespective of its nature orconditSon or class will be destructive of the principle of uniformity and equality in taxation and of a just adaptation of property to its burdens An Illinois tax commission has declared that the uniform ad valorem general property tax the system that we have also in Kentucky is de hauching to the conscience and sub versive to the public moralsa school for perjury promoted by law An Ohio tax commission has denounced it as imposing unjust bur dens on the man who is scrupulously honost and Ohio is engaged in an effort to get rid of it A New Hampshire tax commission deplores its corrupting and demoral izing influence- A New York tax commission says It puts a premium on perjury and a penalty on integrity In an address to the general assembly of Maryland Richard T Ely one saidty ns an exclusive source of rrveino never has worked welt iiilny modern rommunity or state in the entire cv ilizort worM though it has been tried thousands of times and although all the mental resources of able mm ha been employed to make it work well Prof E A Angell late tax commis sinner of Ohio said in an article in the Independent The indirectresults of the operation of the law have been to drive away large mascs of capital from the state It is

Make my store your headquarters dOwhen you come to town E The Jamestown Exposition has expired by limitation and passes into history as the most colossal failure of the kind ever known It deserved a
