Illlls that carry out the pledges ot
the Ilcpubllcin platform should not
be subject to serious delajs. The rec
ord of two years ago must not be
repented. Then there were "pledge
bills" left over, defeated by the vote
of men pledged to support them.
Taxation will be one of the great
Im.uo before the coming Legislature.
Tho people have passed on specific
Pledges of tho Ilcpubllcin party. Tho
work of the Legislature Is to carry
cut the detail, and, while this Is by
no menus unimportant, tlio effort will
Involve none of the mixed sentiment
nnd contending forces that will ac
company tho taxation problem.
Taxation tnlk Is In tho air. Taxa
tion bills arc being framed, some In
public nnd some In private. Tho lte
publlcan committee Is understood to
be discussing taxation.
lYom Knual comes an expression
that Is n specific proposal nnd defi
nite recognition of tho fact that tho
Territory must have more money it it
Is to do the work following In tho nat
urnl wnko of Its progress. The Gar
den Island says editorially:
Comparatively speaking, tho
burden of tho taxation hero In tho
Territory is borne by the laborers
and tho salaried men. Tho 2 per
cent, that reduces the extra inves
ting power n few rich men en
forces additional economy on tho
large majority who have it hard
time to make both ends meet. This
i 'normal condition ought to bo
changed nnd the coming Legisla
ture will bo given nn opportunity
to ameliorate tho condition ns
well of tho Territorial Treasury ns
tho masses ot the taxpajcrs by
enacting n law that will gradu
ate both tho Income and the prop
erty tax rate according to the
nblllty to pay them.
lilt lis nlmlng at such n change

bills have a knack of containing
clauses or being worded in such
