Appointive or Elective.
One provision of the new taxation laws which is most con
demned in our opinion is not only not objectionable, but most
praiseworthy. The provision to which we refer is the one which
makes the assessors appointive instead of elective. .
Long and loud have been the cries that have gone up against
taking away from the people the right to elect their own assessors.
It has been said time and time again that Gov. Cox has had this
particular feature put in the laws so that he can build up apolitical
machine. If this was his purpose he has failed ignominiously be
cause it does not take a politician to know that he has lost ten votes
by making the assessors appointive where these same assessors can
make him one vote. Another argument against the appointment
of assessors has been that the people of a taxing district know a
great deal better who is the best man to assess the property of their
district than some outsider. It may be that they know, but juag
ing from their selections, can it be truthfully said that they have
uniformly selected good men ?
Is this not also true that every man desires to have his property
assessed as low as possible ? That a man who does not want to
secure the ill will of his neighbors, especially if he wants those
neighbors to vote for him ? That no taxing district wants to pay
any more taxes porportionately than any other taxing district ?
To illustrate our point we will take an example. "X" is elected
assessor of "A" township. He takes all of the personal and real
property of the township at its true value. He plays no favorites.
B" is an adjoining township to "A" and "Y" has been elected
assessor. He makes no effort to find the personal property and
what he takes he assesses at the valuation of it owner. Some of
the particularly influential men of the community he lets off very
easy. He values real estate at from one third to one half of its
real value. "X" and "Y" are up for reelection, which do you
think will win ?
If a man's position is dependent upon the votes of the people
whom he is assessing it is only human nature for him to try to
please the people whom he thinks has the most influence.
All of us should desire to have fair and just tax laws. It is
impossible to say how the new tax laws will work, but there is one
thing that we should not do, even if the present laws fail utterly,
and that is go back to the old system of electing assessors. As for
the fear that Gov. Cox or any other governor can control elections
by the appointment of assessors, whenever 21 men, which is the
number of appointees in this county, can control the majority of
the votes in this county it is time somebody was controlling them.
Shall We Have a County Agent ?
At the Smoker held by the Business Men's Association last
week 0. N. Sams in his address urged that a county agent, an
agricultural expert, be secured for this county and the suggestion
should be carried out. The cost of such an agent would be small
indeed in comparison to the benefits derived. The matter should
be taken up at once by the Business Men's Association and we be
lieve would mean more to Hillsboro and Highland county than to
secure several new factories for Hillsboro.
A county agent would have a centrally located office. He would
examine the soil formations of all parts of the county and could
then intelligently advise as to the best way to cultivate it. He
would know what crops could be most profitably raised, how they
should be rotated, what fertilizer to use, advise in regard to times
of sowing and planting, kinds of seed and grain to use, draining,
care and breeding of stock and all of the many different questions
that confront farmers.
The National government will pay one fourth of the cost of an
agent for this county, the state one fourth and the county one
half. The part that will come from the national government we
understand there is no question about, but there might be difficul
ties in the way of securing the share of the state and county ; the
part to be paid by the state on account of restrictions that the state
places on the paying of it that might not be acceptable and the
county part on account of lack of funds. But if the people of High
land county are required to pay three fourth of the cost this should
not stop them from securing a county agent. It should be easy
to raise $1500 to $0000 for such a purpose.
Hillsboro is situated in the center of an agricultural community.
The most important thing to the people of Hillsboro is that the
farmers should be prosperous. It is time that the people of Hills
boro awakened to the realization that what they want to do is not
to make Hillsboro a city of factories, but a city which is the trad
ing and shipping point of the farmers of the surrounding territory.
For miles around us people are engaged -in a business which
vitally effects our prosperity. This business has wonderful possi
bilities of development and enlargement. It is a busjness whose
products are necessary for feeding and clothing mankind, for which
there is always a demand. The markets of the entire world are
calling for these products. In addition the people engaged in the
business are established, they are many of them our relatives and
friends. These thing3 being true why should we pay bonuses to
try to induce strangers to come into our town to begin the manu
facture of some article.
As Mr. Sams said, "Let us develop the opportunities at our
doors and not look elsewhere for them," and the securing of a
county agent should be the first step in the work of development.
The editor does not lay claim to being a champion
lines, but for the past ten-days he confidently claims to have been
the world's champion snuffler and nose blower.
Harry Daugherty is the leader or it might be more correct to
say boss of the Republican party in Ohio, Wm. Barnes Jr., in New
York, Murry Crane, m Massachusetts, Boies Penrose, in Pennsyl
vania, Reed Smoot, in Utah, but why lengthen the list, and still
they ask those who left the party on principle to return.
We saw an article the other day which stated that one could
live well in Madagascar and that when you heard anyone say that
they wished they did not have to work to tell them about Madagas
car. Our geography is rather vague but according to our recollec
tion it is some distance from Hillsboro to Madagascar and no in
struction was given in the article on how to get the money without
working to go to Madagascar.
