What Difference Did It Make ?
The only criticism we have heard of Boosters Day was that it
was a political meeting held under the guise of an agricultural
meeting ; that the sole purpose of the meeting was to give Gov. Cox
an opportunity to talk to the people, especially the farmers upon the
laws passed during his administration.
We had no doubt that this was the main purpose of the meet
ing when it' was arranged and we have had no reason to change
But why complain about this ? The program as announced was
carried out exactly. Sandles, Riddle and Beggs made able addresses
on agricultural subjects and told the farmers many thingsjwhich
should be of profit to them. Gov. Cox, it is true, made two political
speeches ; that is if defending his record and discussing important
public questions is making political speeches.
Every man should be glad of the opportunity to hear public
questions discussed by a man of the ability of Gov. Cox, even if he
does not agree with him. And besides if a man goes to hear a
speech and does not like it he does not have to stay. The subter
fuge that the meeting here Thursday was mainly an agricultural
one hurt no one, as all who attended upon that understanding heard
excellent talks on farm subjects and also heard two most excellent
speeches on important questions of the day. Always be broad
enough to be glad to hear the opposite side of any question.
Warnes Tax Law.
In his speech here last Thursday Gov. Cox made one point in
defense of the Warnes Tax Law that is unanswerable. He said
that if the appointive assessors require people to make true returns
of their property and thus raise the tax duplicate ; that the appoin
tive officers have done their duty ; that the men who fix the tax
rate and spend the money are elective officers and that if the public
money is wasted the blame must rest on the elective officers.
You can not get around this. If it is the work of the appoin
tive officers to assess the property and they do this right, than their
duty has been performed. The fixing of the tax rate and the spend
ing of the money raised by taxation is in the hands of elective
officers. After the property is assessed the responsibility rests
But Gov. Cox did not stop here, he went on to say that if the
fov dnnlicate is materially increased the tax rate should come down
and that he would join with other citizens in an indignation meet
ing against the elective officials who had the spending of the public
money, if it did not come aown.
monr without explanation.
In Hillsboro and many other districts we have been facing the
situation for several years, that eventually the duplicate must be
materially increased, the tax rate increased or the district become
bankrupt. For the last four years we have not been raising enough
money to conduct the business of the town, have been running
behind several thousand dollars each year. It does not take an
expert financier to know that this can not continue for ever. If
the expenditures 01 a uusiaess u-e gieaiBr uiau it receipts eacn
year, there can be but one result. Ultimately the business becomes
bankrupt. This is what Hillsboro and many other towns and tax
ing districts have been doing since the Smith One Percent Law
mont: into effect,
We must have greater .revenues to conduct the business of
Hillsboro. And we say tnis wiluuul quauucation as it is impossiDie
to furnish a good village government on the present Irevenues, no
matter how economical its conduct.
We agree with Gov. Cox that every man should pay for the
support of the government in proportion to the benefits he receives.
We have believed that the Warnes Tax Law was an improvement
over the old system and that if it would not accomplish this was
at least a step in the right direction. Reports from all over the
state indicate that there-will be more personal property returned
fnr taxation than ever before, that wealthy people will come nearer
novino- nn what they have than
Gov. Cox, however, went too far when he said that wherever
there was a material increase in valuation of property, the tax rate
could and should be decreased. This at least is not true in Hills
boro. With us it is either increase the valuation, increase the tax
rate or go broke.

three sisters and a brother having

when she was but a babe of only two
years. She became the sole companion
of her father, whose devotion was as
tender as a mother's and Mary has
often said she regretted to die and
leave her poor papa who had always
been so kind to her.
About two years ago she was stricken
with a deep cold which settled upon
her lungs and which resulted in her
death. Although a great sufferer she

when the summons come we may be
able to respond and to meet Mary In
the Great Beyond.
We know not what it is
This sleep so deep and still,
The folded hands, the awful calm,
