callebiate springs and wells Then let us stop complaining farm right and succeed There are other and greater possibilities yet for the young Kentuckian who is willing to get down to hard work and wait for results Rockcastle boys let us recount some of our advantages There are only two counties in Kentucky that contain any considerable amount of St Louis limestone and by far the better of these is Rockcastle You say what of that Very much indeed It meens much to Kentuck and more to Rockcastle This lime stone mixed with native shale in definite proportions makes port land cement Our coal is the kind and quality best suited to burning cament This limestone is the best road metal obtainable For concrete work it is excelent and cheap Reduced to an im alpable powder it is riot surpassed by the better grades of commercial fertilizer and can be produced for one third the cost To the geo logist the Rockcastle conglomerate is one of themosf interesting phenomena on this continent At one time a great river much broader arid deeper than the Mississippi flowed through thissection cntadeep wide channel through the rock then later this channel became filled with clean sharp sand and white pebbles Another remarkable feature of this peculiar formation is its freedom from dir Handlingit does not soil the hands nor clothing No doubt it will some day become of great commercial inter st to

Mean Exemp 1tion But Fair Apportionment on All Kinds of PropertyIt Means Uniformity Louisville =The following is the ad dress of Mr A Y Ford before tht t Kentucky Press association at thi midwinter gathering in Louisville r The tax system of a state deserve careful consideration because the i power to tax is the power to destroy and a tax unwisely laid may easily drain the life of a community or kil an industry Approximately 20000 000 a year are taken from the pocket supIlal governments It is Incomprehen ible that a thing which means so nuch In dollars and cents to the peo ile of the state should generally have eceived such scant consideration I- Its difficult to Understand why it should ave been so hard at any time to se cure from those charged with the uty of making our laws a careful horough and conscientious study c he methods by Hvhl0h these large rev nues are raised We have no specia 1 complaint to make of the way ic Thich these revenues are spent There has been no considerable ex travagance in the expenditure of our ublic funds It is therefore time ve now stop to consider thaI whether these large sums are by the best posible methods whether they are raised in a way that distrib utes the burden fairly as between th owners of various kinds of property whether the tax laws Impose the lejaS burden consistent with the demand = or revenue and whether they so dls Ibuie th burden as to offer the least = possible hindrance to the development of the state Where there is compe = tition between communities such as necessarily exists under modern con ditions an unwise system laid with out due consideration of the handicap It may impose upon the community in the sharp competition for new popula = tion new industries and new capital may easily prove destructive of pros perity = Revision Does Not Mean Sxemotiop The movement for a revision of the tax system of Kentucky Is not a movement In favor of exemption o any kind of property from taxation I know It ha been rharacterlzttj In some quarters re cntly as an appeal for an exemnIon f capital from taxation There has re cently aiipeircd In the press of the state an article from a gentleman for whom I have the greatest resnect which reveas a total misunderstanding of the spiritS and purpose of this movement In article hs declared that the attempt to revise system of taxation In Ken tucky Is a part of a general combination of capital to sure exemption from tax nUcr I state deliberately and with full consideration and having abundant np jortnnlty to know whereof I speak that o advocate of the proposed revision of he tax system of Kentucky hag evej propert1hOU of property that now escape taxa Illrs may be made to yield a revenue ami relieve the burden on real estate present system has utterly failed

That Is manifest ob f rdlty Let us address ourselves to tin icts Let us face the conditions as they ethe laws of economics and of human ture as they areand not as we thinky should be The ys eir or

in order to cure this injustice and the evils attending It and resulting from KentuckyTheIt pail be corrected here The States of the systemvising a system of penalties and assess compelthIsand be taxed when the tax rate amounts thetncomeHow It Works in Kentucky Now let us look at the situation In Kentucky The state tax Is cents There you have already a tax rate quite as high as some classes of property can thereUnderstate tax must be put the county tax which taking the state over will aver age not far from Ocents This gives us i tax rate ofl too high for many and the process of hiding gets well under do we stop here On top of Vile state tax of cents and the county tax f cents there Is still Imposed a local tax ranging all the way from cents to 1183 and sometimes higher and with every 5 or cents added to the rate byhidingtax rate in cities and towns of first sec ond third fourth and fifth classes in Kentucky Is about 222 This amounts to about 55 per cent of the return from any per cent investment It amounts to a little under 45 per cenl of the return from nY5 per cent Investment and if you applyit to a 3 per cent Investment such as a savings account it takes near v per cent the Income Not even the wildest extremes would propose an income tax of to per cent Yet that is what we try to collect from some classes of property It is too much o expect of weak human na Ire It Isastupid defiance ot economic laws as well as of the law of human nature When aol tax takes more than per cent of the Income from any class Of property beginThotaken by a tax the greater Incentive to evasion Undervaluation and perjury In order to escape the burden until you Teach a point where to pile further taxes on a tax Tate already high does not yeld a proportionate increase of reve liue s We Have Tried It Nineteen Years We fixed this system In the new con stitution nineteen years ago Our Inten tions were good We acted with the best Unfortunatelyhowsystem was being abandoned elsewhere It Is not yielding sufficient revenue for a hamperSlndustrlpsIttal out of the state or into forms of in vestment that do not promote business activity and do not furnish employment to labor and dp not develop the resources of the state It is a mistake to suppose that It is the rich man only or chiefly who has a precntt3of himaeJfand does take care of him self He understands the tax laws or if he not understand them himself he Is able to employ the best legal counsel to tell him how to so arrange his invest men as to be in a safe position when the assessment time rolls around If all else falls he can move out of the state He Is smart enough to put the greater propethas- sessor The poor man can not do these things If he has been fortunate and thrifty enough to save anything at all generally It first takes the form of a savings account and then of a home He knows little or nothing of stocks and bonds If he has a savings account he must conceal it from the assessor or give uppractlcally the whole of Its yelld In taxes If he has not saved enough for a estatoformust pay this tax whether in exchange for a tax recipt from the sheriff or for a rent receipt from the landlord There is no escaping it And If the poor man InK j1tucky has tried to buy a home and has made a partial payment on it he finds that the notes representing his de ferred payments are also taxed and tin lender may be trusted to arrange matters so that the owner of the property wil stand the burden of the tax on those notes practically making him pay doubts tax to the extent nf his unpaid purchase money Costs the State Heavily I have seen It stated recently that the asserUontUt our tax system has driven Kentucky and keeps other capital from coming to Kentucky is a bald assertion not resting on facts herejant personally traced more than live million dollars o capital that had been Invested in Kentucky but had ben recently closed ou 2nd taken from the state because It owners found that under more advantageous tax laws elsewhere they could pet greater yields from their Investment the13rgecommunJttesr 200000 meant a rather serious contrac tion in the available capital of the community We Need Outside Capital It has not beenlong since I heard the very startling statement made by a speaker at a public gathering that we KentuckyIthisPractlca1ythe resources of Kentucky that has taken plac has been by the aid of foreign capital It must have been so ourselvesIfdevelopmentnow i Kentucky is almost wholly by means of outside capital We neerl this out side capital We want it to come We want u
