Columbus, April 0. Governor Foraker
sent the following special message to the
lxislslftture to-day, concomlng the financial
condition of the State:
Omen nr tub GovEiiNon,
Columbus, O., April 6, 1830,
To tho General Assembly;
The financial condition of the State needs
nttentlon. It Is estimated by the Stato Audi
tor that tho expenditures of tho State up to
tho 1st day of next July will amount to
about HO0,O0n, and that from that date until
the 1st day of next Jnnuary they will amount
to about jl,W.l,000, making n total oxpondl
turo of f2,noo,o00 to bo protlded for out of
tho general revenuo fund.
To meet this wo had on tho first day of
Anril a cali balance In tho treasury of only
nlioutf.1M.OKi, and It Is estimated by tho
State Auditor that our totul rovenuos from
tho taxes to be collected In Juno and all
other sources will amount to only about
SI.IUMXH, or In round numbers the casual
deficiency or tho Stato will aggregate about
1,00,000 on December 31, into
The Constitution provides that the State
may borrow money tor tho purpose of meet
ing such deficiencies, but that such Indebt
edness hall never exceed 7M),oon.
it lias become neces?arv not onlv to use
but to exhaust this power, and a bill has ac
cordlnglr bcon Introduced nuthorlr.lng the
commissioner of the sinking fund to Issue
und pell certificate of Indebtedness of Iho
Slate In that amount. The necess'ty for
th s stop is so apparent It Is hoped tho bill
will ho promptly passed. With even this
help It w 11 bo necessary to anticipate tho
revenues of next year to tho amount of
'TA000. Hence, notwithstanding this loan,
there Is Impcrattvo necessity for the strictest
Hut you are Invited to look further to
something more Important.
Our Stato Is rapidly growing In both popu
lation and wealth; thedemandson our treas
ury nre corresponding!!-Increasing. Fortho
next ten years this will probably continue
mnro rapidly thim heretofore, owing to the
fact that em gratlon to the Western State
Is decreasing In proportion as that country
fills up and Its lands enhance In value.
Hut whllo this demand has been Increasing
our sources of revenuo have been diminish
ing, in lxKl the value for tnxat'on of the
personal property of the State, as shown bv
tho grand duplicate, was $Ai:!.3i7.1:!l. In 1S84
It shrank to WW.298.H7I, and for 18W dwin
dled again to .W.nn.!!l This loss has been
made up largely by tlio steady growth of tho
valuation of real estate on account of now
structures, etc., but the loss was greater
than tho Increaso last vear, and the result Is
shown 'n tho faet that the grand aggiegato
oi an tno property in mot-laic, noui real ana
personal, amounted In 1R8S to but $1,070,079,

This Indicates that our wants and our abil
ity to meet them arc traveling In opposite
directions, and thnt unless the tax rate or
tho valuation of property is Increased the
cnstial dcflclonccs will continue and grow
larger without power to provide for them
because of tho extreme limitat'on allowed
br the Constitution hnvlng been reached
under tho bill above raforrcd to, providing
for tho Issuo and sale of tho bonds ot the
Stale to the amount of ITM.OOO to meet the
emergency now upon us.
The rata of taxation should not be In
creased, at least not until other measures
that seem moro Just have been tried. The
last election Indicated a desire of the peo
TAX THE LIQUOR TRAFriC.
It Is hoped this Legislature will not ad
journ until an eiliclont mexxuro to that elTcct
has been enacted. Although such a tax can
be levied onlv for the purpose of police reg
u!nt on. et It does not lollow that the reve
nuo, when collected, must necessarily be
devoted to any particular purpice. On tho
contrary, It Is ontlrely competent to do with
It as the Legislature inav see fit, and It Is
Ytiougnt to be only equitable and Just that at
least 25 per cent, ot tho ret eniio so der ved
should go to tho general fund of the Statu.
And It Is recommended that any law that
may be enacted on this subject snail so pro
vide. From this source the State would in
such event rcallo probably riOH.n00, to the
grout rolief of all present classes of tax
Foreign Insurance, telegraph, and express
companies doing business In this State are
now taxeu upon ineir grosH receipts, mere
Is no reason why foreign telephone, trans
portatlon, car trust, and car e;u pment, and
sleeping and parlor car companies should
not be similarly taxed. If tho policy be right
In the ono class of cases It should be equally
so In the others, and equity and Justice to
tho State and to tho other compan es that
nrc so taxed require an umendmont of tho
laws to that effect
Tho most Important matter to which It Is
desired to call your attention yet remains to
OUR TAX I.4W8.
Our tax laws are. In the main, perhaps, as
wise as they can bo made under the present
Constitut on. If It wete not for Its positlvo
Injunctions much might be said In favor of
exomptlng from taxation the bonds of our
State and municipal governments, to tho end
that we might not tax our credit and dr vo
our securities away, out Keep inem at noma
and pay the Interest upon them to our own
people. But that Is Impracticable and un
necessary to be d'scussed
Tho requirement of tho Constitution Is
that all bonds, stocks. Investments, etc , as
woll as real property, shall be taxed at their
truo value In money. Our laws have been
framed with a view to securing this result,
but it is manifest to all acquainted with our
resources that they have lamentably fulled:
for all such know that Instead of a grand
dupllcalo of l,H70.O7H.f, wo ought to havo
one of at least 3,000 millions, and 4;ou0 millions
would more nearly represent the taxable
wealth of the Stale.
To ascertain how and why there has bcon
tbls failure to value property at the law re-
?ulres, the State Auditor, as a result of a con
orenco on the suhlect, framed and sent out
to tbo County Auditors of the State certain
printed questions to bo answered, calling for
information as to the per cent, at which
f property, both real and personal. Is appraised
n their respective count'es. -Thcso
questions, with tbo answers thereto
so far as received, and nearly all have
answered, are submitted herew th.
You wlllseo by referring to them that
THERE IS NO UN1KOIIMITV Of VALUATION
of property, one county w th another, the
State over; but that In disregard. If not
positlvo defiance of tho luw, each county
Kcems to havo an Independent standard of Its
own: and that the valuutlon of real estate
raroly exceeds 73 per cent, and ranges down
ward from that point us low as 2. per cent,
of Its truo value, whllo personal property Is
valued all tho way from Its full vuluo down
to nothing, In fact tho great majority of the
personal property of the Stato is not io
turned, but entirely and fraudulently with
held from taxat on. So far ns
Is ooncerned, the fault Is chiefly with the
people who list their property for taxation.
The Idea seems to largely prevail that
there Is lulustlca and Inequality In taxation
and that there is no harm in cheat ng tho
State, although to do so a false return must
be made and perjury must,be committed.
This offense ngnlust the State and good
morals Is too frequently committed by men
of wealth and reputed high cbaraoter and of
corresponding position in socety.
In connection with the recent refunding
of our State debt, maturing next December,
It was disclosed that some of the most prom
inent and highly respected men of our State
held large amounts of those bonds without
having ever paid a dollar of tax on the same,
or having In any manner reported them for
taxation. The only excuse that haa been
suggested for this Is that the bonds wero
supposed to be non taxable, but It Is d ffioult
to be patient with inch a cla m when It is ad.
vanced by men of Intelligence, familiar with
our Constitut on and Its requirements, that
all bonds, etc.. shall be taxed.
While such men disregard and violate the
law, it must be expected that our tax dupli
cate will cout'nue to decline instead or In
crease with our growth and development,
'ihe harm they do Is not measured by the
amount or money of which they deprive the
State: their example Is bad and fraught with
evil to the whole community. There should,
therefore, be severer penalties provided for
false roturns. and a more .rigid enforcement
or the laws for the listing of bonds and other
securities and credits.
This Is especially true of unincorporated
banka. It does not seem possible tbat they
aro paying taxes on anything Ilka an equita
ble bus's as compared with the incorporated
banks of the State.
Tuke the banks of Columbus for Illustra
tion. They are a fair example. Thero are In
this city oight unincorporated banks and
sevnn Inetirnnratod banks reDOrted to do III
tho aggregate nearly the aauio amount of
business. 1 or the year lHtt these banks made
returns for taxation as follows:

It Is recommended that tho law govemtng
tho taxation of privato bonks be carefully
revised so as to prevent su-jh manliest in
justice. Tho Incorporated banks ot tho State natnr
allv regard this as wrong, nnd they havu ac
cordingly been resorting to tho courts for
relief against it, and In almost all cases with
Simons, the pnttrts linvlnir held that such In
equalities should be relieved against. A
number of such suits arc now pending In tho
northern part of the Stato. In an Important
sense they Involve tho entlrotax diijilcnte,
for they havo been Instituted us test cases,
and, If successful, tho result will bo to lessen
tho tax valuation of our property many
mlll'onsof dollars and throw our whole sys
tem Into such confusion as to produce tho
most embarrassing consequences. 'I ho At
torney (Jcneral. with tho npprotal of tho
Governor and Stato Auditor, hns employed
local counsel to represent tho Stato in these
suits, and everything possible will be done to
successfully defend them. An appropria
tion should bo made to defray the expenses
of such defense, including counsel fees.
REVALUATION Or ItEA', ESTATE.
It Is obvious that so long as tho present
valuation of real estate stands great lnlus-
i tlco will bo done to all whoso property Is
oven approximately correctly tniucu, and
the State will continue unable to meet the
public demands without embarrassment.
It is recommended, thorcfore, that a reval
uation bo had at once, instead of uniting for
the next decennial valuation of lb'J). In or
der that this nmy be done In such n way as
to secure a full and fair appra'sement. It is
recommended that thoro be con-tltutcd n
State Hoard of Equallat'on, consisting of
eight members, not moro than four of whom
shall be of the same political party, to be
appointed by somo suitable authority, from
the electors or tbo Stato. to hold their offices
for a fixed term, and whoso duty it shall be
to supervise, as well as revise and equalise.
tno valuations to uc mane, mo numucr
mentioned Is thought to be large enough to
enable each of tho leading industries of the
State to ho represented, and at the same
time not too large ror efficient action.
It Is also thought men so selected will have
the Interests of the whole Stutn moro In mind
thou If they should bo elected to represent
some particular d strict or locality. In which
case experience has shown they are too apt
to act us though their highest duty was to
secure tho lowest possible valuation for their
It Is further recommended that the duties
of equalization now devolved upon the Oov
ernor. Attorney General, and Slate Auditor
as to bank shares, and on 'he Attorney (Jcn
eral, Treasurer of State, nnd Stato Auditor as
to railroads, bo transferred to and Imposed
upon this Hoard; that thero be. In short, ono
and the same Stato Hoard, nnd one only, for
the equalization of all classes or property.
It Is further recommended that In all cities
having a Hoard or Tax Commissioners it bo
made the duty or such Hoard to appoint all
the assessors and appraisers.
It Is cohUdcntly believed that If such legisla
tion can be had as Is hero attempled to be In
dicated, tho tax dunlteate can be so Increased
as to approximate our real worth, and that
vnluat ons can foe so equalized as to secure
uniformity and Justlco for tho whole State,
and that the rote of taxation can be ma
terially lessened to the groat benefit of all,
while the State will bo afforded an abundant
revenue. Respectfully submitted,
J. U. Foraker, Governor.
Characteristics of a Very Dangerous In
habitant of the llermudas.
I must confess to having had a very
vaguu idea about the scorpion beforo
becoming acquainted witli tho tropics.
I think if I had been driven to it I
should have described him as a creature
with wings, black, mid somewhere
about the size of n humming-bird. This
would have been about as inaccurate a
description as can be imagined. He
has no wings, ho is not black, and ho is
nowhere near the size of even a half-
crown humminsr-bird. Thero is an
lmamnary picture of him in all the
almanacs, but it doesn't look very much
like him that sign of tho zodiac.
A full-grown scorpion is from two to
two-aud-a-lialf inches long aim ins
color is a sort of ashy cray. He has
eitrht loirs, unon all of which minute
hair grows, and his tall is much longer
man there is any necessity lor consiu
ering tho size of his boily, and I
havu included that in measuring Ills
length. It is at tho end of his tail that
he carries his venomous sting, and
when he curls up his body into a semi
circle nnd brings that llvoly end of his
tail to bear upon an enemy, tho enemy
can not drop him too soon. His body
is nowhere as thick as a lead
pencil, but at tho head it branches out
into claws, or horns, or additional logs,
whichever you liko to call them; so that
in shape he is somewhat liko a tack
hammer. Ho is shaped very much like
a hanmier-hended shark, only hammer
headed sharks aro not familiar enough
in Northern waters to serve for an illus
tration. Ho is a creature of mold and
slime, liko the snail. Let an old box
lie on the ground, particularly in a
moist place, till the bottom boards
begin to decay, and your scorpion trap
When you want your game lift up
tho box and there is your scorpion. But
be careful to take hold of the box near
the top. and not got your fingers in his
way. For the scorpion is very rapid in
his movements, and ho will give you a
sting before you know it. When he
strikes you with the end of his tail, like
a wasp, he exudes a venomous liquid,
and a man might bettor hold a red-hot
iron in his hand than get the tentlt part
of a drop of this liquid into his blood.
It is not necessarily fatal, particularly
in the Hahamas, but it condenses tne
heat of forty furnaces.
In somo parts of South America scor-
Eion bites are frequently fatal, but I
avo not iieard of nny onu having been
killed by them in Nassau. This is easily
accounted for. The scorpion likes to
feed upon decaying wood. In Soutli
America, whero dye woods and other
poisonous woods abound, the scorpions
feed upon them, and thus work into
themselves a good supply of outside
poison, which, taken together with his
naturally poisonous liquid, does its
work for whoever is unfortunato enough
to be stung. But in Nassau such
poisonous woods are few, and the
scorpions havo to fatten themselves
respectably on pine, cedar and ma
hogany. They never attack anybody unless
disturbed. But if a barefoot boy steps
on one, or if you pick up a stone or a
board with ono lying under it, ho will
sting you if ho can, nnd ho will do it
on very short notice, too. I havo seen
a decaying board picked up that had
thrco or four scorpions lying under it.
Nobody ever . thinks of letting one
escapo'in this part of the world if ho
can help it. The same feeling that
sailors have about sharks, people in
tropical countries havo about all those
venomous insects. Just us we always
try to kill a sniike in the North, a
Southerner always tries to kill a taran
tula, a scorpion or a centipede. Cor.
