P Cacho county citizens will recall
v how Candidate Bamberger waxed el
oquent telling them how he was go
ing to' reduce taxes when ho was cam-
palgning for votes. Cache county
citizens have been Interested in koep
ing tab on Governor Bambeiger just
U see how he is making good.. Cache
gcounty citizens have long slnco been
W disgusted with the way tho Bam
berger administration met Its prom
ises with Its acts. Cacho county cit
izens are entitled to tho facts. Let
ill review them for a few moments.
Illcie they aro:
On December 1G, 1914, tho Stato
Hoard of Equalization, of which tho
Hon. Hardin Bennion, present Secre
tary of State was a member, report
ed to Governor Spry as follows:
"This blennlum began with a to
tal valuation of tho property ot the
state ot $200,262,873, being an In
crease of $82,215,657 during the pre
ceding ten years. The total assess
I ment for the year 1313 was $213,-
868,897, and for 1914; It fa $221.
720,400. Tho Stato Board of Equal-
Ization under Covornor Bamberger
has Just informed the people that the
valuations for the present year will
be $700,075,000 , or nearly three
quarters or a billion dollars. Verily
the Democratic party has become bo
accustomed to talk and act in bll-
1 lions that the state administration
I apparently feels that Utah must be
I in tho billion dolar class. Ot course
I it must be remembered that In 1916
I the state went on to tho "full cash
'1, valuo" basis which raised valuations
B"&C senerally, but to bring the matter
rM Ljlght up to the threshold of tho peo-
VI f of, Cacho county to whom Oover-
' nor Bamberger has Just tendered a
M $5,000,000 ralso, listen to the fol-
ft Cache county valuations for tho
AJr past five years are aa follows:
'jj7 1H $8,328,725

Tho valuation for the present year

Increase of $5,000,000 over last year.
Somo ralso that! and at tho samo
time tho levy creeps up. And tho
end Is not yet. When nil this ralso
Is Incked on nnd tho people havo
paid it, tho states will then bo short
about $200,000, nearly a quarter of
a million dollars. Talking in mil
lions and billions is alright for a
millionaire governor, and an army
ot well paid ofllco lioldors, but It is
like General Sherman said about
war, to tho taxpayer "hell."
The samo conditions prevails
throughout tho entire fabric ot the
Democratic administration, both In
state and nation. Senator King Is
watching conditions at Washington
like a cat watches a mouse, and hard
ly a day passes that he does not find
occasion to charge his fellows with
wanton extravaga'nee. He has de
clared time and again that It seems
impossible to disconnect any of the
"war help" and thereby lessen the
burden of the people. Senator King's
cause is just but his Democratic
brethren can do nothing for him.
In explanation ot the raise Presi
dent Boberts of the State Board of
Equalization said that the legisla
ture had appropriated approximate
ly $1,860,000 and In order to get
tho monoy the tax valuations were
$100,000,000 short. The only thing
left for the board to do was to raise
tho taxes In order to get tho money.
In accordance therewith Cache coun
ty farm property was raised 30 per
cent; gracing lands, 25 per cent;
cattle, other than rango cattle, 10
per cent; sheep other than rango
sheep, 100 per cent, and merchan
dise 20 per cent. He further said:
"The pcoplo of Utah should remem
ber that they require more service
of tho stato than in tho paBt, they
have authorized said Increase of ser
vlco through their legislature, and
thoy cannot get that Increaso of
sorvlce without paying for It, which
of courso, lncroascs." Thereforo tho
good people should not complain, for
as President Roberta infers tho peo
ple aro getting Just what thoy votpd
for. Somo logic. Some people.
Somo taxes. God bless WJlson, he
kept us out ot war.
