HAVE A ROFERTY ASSESSOR.
The Comptroller is after the
county auditors to have the tax
payers to return their property
at its true value, and how he
hopes to accomplish this needed
- - rinm wP are at a loss to know.
It just cannot be done by the au
ditors. The makers of returns
are not going to put their prop
erty down at full value, and take
the chances of paying a greater
proportion of taxes than some
who have better lands. The
Comptroller General says in his
circularthat "in the reassessment
of property commencing January
1st, 1910, County Auditors must
require of all taxpayers an item
ized return of all property sub
ject to taxation "at its true value
in money, "which is construed to
mean" the'sum for which said
property under ordinary circum
stances would sell for cash. " Just r
how the Auditor is to require the
returns to be made as the Comp
troller General wishes, is not
clear. Mo. the truth is, thas four
years ago there was much confu
sion in the making of the returns,
on account of a similar require
ment; the small taxpayer made
bis return at an increased value,
but the large taxpayer did not, he
continued to shift the burden on
the -little fellow, some few large
property owners did increase
their assessment but when the
county equalization board got
hold of it the return was lowered
to conform with the values set for
themselves, with the result, that
many small taxpayers were ass
essed out of proportion, and of
course were overtaxed.
-We do not think the Comp
troler should impose impossible
burdens on the auditors, but he
should go to the legislature and
ask thatitprovideeffective means
to equalize the taxes of the State.
this cannot be done by leavmng
the assessment to the property
-?owner but there must be provid
e darassessor, whose bsns
it should be t3'go-npoirthe prop
erty and make the return at~Tt
county. and for every railroad
and factory, then the chances are
that every one will pay a fair1
Jproportion to the State, but
as things are now, the tax-dodg
ersaare in the saddle, and wil con
tinue to be as long as we retain
a system that permits property
tobe assessed at less than one
fifth of its value, and not only so,
-as long as-the law allows big tax
jpayers to go to the legislature to
get back a part ot the taxes they
did pay. Our observation is that
Carolin~a than in any other State
we know of, and less effort made
to stop it. The fact that assess-'
ments 'are so fearfully unpropor-'
tioned, almost forces, otherwise
-good men, who ordiarily want
I oput their property on the books
at a fair value to resort to dodg
-ing as a matter of self defense,
and save himself from being im
posed upon by the big taxpayers.
Charles W. Morse, the con
25iiGmost patklenC case, ana e
our'judgment one that is deserv
ing of sympathy rather than
ceonsure. Morse is a great finan
cer, the panic of recent date
-caught him in bad financial con-1
-dition ana then came the clamorl
that somebody should be pun-I
ished, it fellto the lot of the 'ice
king" to be made a victim, he~
was tried and convicted, sent to:
the tombs- awaiting appeal, and[
while there every effort possible1
- . was madeto havte tee court's de
cent. His associates ini business'
have never lost confidcnce in the
man, nor in his judgment, fori
-the very day that the court sus
-tained the verdict he was chosen
by them to be the head of a large
financial institution. He is flow4
done for, unless a pardon is
granted by the President, and
we sincerely hope that the law
will show mercy in case, because
we cannot look upon Morse in
the light of one who was at
tempting to swindle, or steal.

is excellent for clening out the di
gestive tract and giving the appetite a
dilip. It is well to follow the morn

the hands above the bead. then bend
down, keeping the knees straight. un
til the tips of the fingers touch the
floor. Repeat this eight times, then
put the hands on the hips and bend
from side to side. This massages the
liver and stimulates the digestion.
For breakfast eat porridge and brown
bread and some fruit. Prunes are the
best if there is a tendency to cosisti
