in the Sunday morning's issue. When
we took the ground that church prop

property used by religious organizations
for the purposes of religious worship,
solely. A church society that owns real es
tate which it leases for business purpose,
or on which it builds houses tor rent, or
a church society owulng a church edi
fice having connected with it rooms
leased for buslaess purposes should be
taxed proportionately to the value of all
itch property It should be entitled to
no exemption because its ownership is
vested in an ecclesiastical society.
