of an opportunity of coming 'here,"
continued the senator.
Senator <McLaurin, said in 1905,
the assessment for taxation was
! $2?0,000,000, the revenue at a rate of
| 5 1-4 mills was a little over one million
dollars. Ten- years later in 1915,
| assessed (valuation was $310,907,101,
Taxes amounting to $2,176,350 were
levied. The appropriation bill carried
$2,463,759.82. There was a
studied effort to mislead the people.
The levy was fixed at .51-2 mills, and
a special levy of 1-2 mill was made
for the asylum, and one mill for pensions,
bringing the totfil to 9 mills.
So, here is the proposition: In 10
years there has been an increase of
about 47 per cent in taxable values,
and of more than 100 per cent isi expendltures.
In other -words how,? long
will it take to bankrupt a man making
$47 and spending $100.
In addition to the amount appropriated,
the governor was authorized
to borrow $50,000 to pay liquor constables
and $100,000 for repairs on

The State only survives such a lack

How it Cane About
"This condition came about because
after 1876, every time objection was
raised, those in control said, 'Hus^
you'll split the party.' Now, it is
^Blease in the wood pile,' and people
are whipped into llae by a threat of
'Bleaseism.' God save the State if
the people can be fooled, and if they
allow themselves to be duped into
bitter factionalism against their own
interests by this inceesant cry against

1. Budget system for appropria-.
2. One board to have charge of
all public institutions.
3. No duplication of offices or

Ceiivantes, the Villa bandit leader,
was killed by American troops south
of Cruces today. With him was killed
Jose Bencomo, another Mexican.
The remainder of the band was pursued
and dispersed. The American
losses were Corporal Davis Marksbury
killed and Privates George F.
Nicholson and George O. Hulette
When the engagement began the
bandits outnumbered the Americans,
twc io ohe, there .being 20 of them.
The engagement lasted almost an
hour with a hot interchange of bul

Seventeenth came in sight and the
bandits broke for tbe hills.
Private Ccorge u. Hulette was the
