Mtv Wells Corrects a Staten? en
Made by The Advertiser.
Dear Mr. Editor.:. You misui
derstood me, when you reported m
as having said that I favo|e<
abolishing the commutation tax fo
roads, My position is .that we can
not have good roads, without raie
ing more money, and if we are ti
raise more money for road building
I am in favor of raising it by ;
general property levy for road pui
poses, and I favored reducing, no
abolishing, the commutation tax ;
little to offset in a measure th
property tax that the country peo
p'.e would have to pay, as they ar
the only class of people who hav<
heretofore paid any taxes at all fo:
roads. I think it an unjust law tha
makes the countrj' people bear al
the burdon and expense of the roac
tax. To raise all the money necessa
ry Jo have good roads from th(
country people alone or from anj
other class of our people . alon?
would be a burdeii and an injustice
but to levy a general property tas
on all would require a very sm al
levy. Nobody would feel it and i
would raise ample funds.
