'JNJUST TAX LAW
How Unsatisfactory the Pres-v
ent Tax System Works
in This State
Most Unequal Syttem Ever Devised
and Most of the Progressive States
Have Abolished the Plan Used In
The present state constitution ot
Kentucky provides that "Taxes shall
be uniform on all kinds of property,"
and on the surface this seems to be
so fair the average thinker can find
no fault with it.
In practice, however, It has been
found to be the most unequal tax system
ever devised, and most of the progressive
states have abolished the
Its inequalities and unfairness may
be seen from the way It discriminates
in certain classes of property and explains
why Kentucky seems to have
so little Intangible wealth as compared
with other states.
F?or instance, cash in savings banks
draws only three per cent Interest,
bonds pay four per cent, real
estate notes six per cent, stock In
some foreign corporations ten per cent,
while the tax on all Is the same for
state purposes, but varies for county
and city purposes according to the location.
Thus where the income is only 3
per cent and the taxes 2 per cent
it leaves tho owner only per cent
interest, and where the income is.10
per cent and the taxes 2 per cent
tho interest is 7 per cent In this
In some counties land is assessed
at 30 per cent ot its value, In others 50
per cent, and In others 70 per cent.
The state tax is the same In all tho
counties. Is this uniform?
If an honest farmer lists his property
at Its fair value and his unscrupulous
neighbor puts & lower value
on his property the former pays more
than his share, wall the latter pays
If the state board of equallratlon
raises the entire list for that county,
the honest man pays on property he
doesn't own, and yet our law Is supposed
to be uniform.
That the personalty owned by
tens of Kentucky Is vastly more than
is listed for taxation is a
Ushed fact; but the tax receipts don't
show 1L In fact, certain classes of
property, such as stocks, bonds," notes
and cash have almost disappeared from
the tax rolls, and these evidences of
wealth apparently grow less each year.
If the present system is allowed to
remain in force, it will result, as it has
in other states, in almost all kinds of
personalty disappearing from the
ana lands and houses
which can not be hid or moved will
have to bear the chief burden.
It has been so In every state where
the "general property tax" has been
the plan on which property was taxed,
and most of the states have been wise
enough to get rid of such an unequal
and unfair system.
The Ohio state tax commission, in
Its W08 report on the operation of the
"general property tax," says:
"It is a failure for purposes of revenue
or equality. Perhaps not 5 per
cent of Intangible property is listed.
It punishes the honest. It rewards the
dUhone&t. It frequently results in
double taxation and lowers the'
Tho entire revenue of. the state of
Kentucky is about 17,000,000, while
Mlch'lgan, with about the same area
and population, receives $14,000,000
from taxes, only a small proportion of
which is paid on land.
In Pennsylvania there Is no state
tac on farms or homes.
Thore are 7,000,"000 acres ot unimproved
farm lands in Kentucky and
yet vast quantities ot farm products
have to be Imported.
There are about twenty-five thousand
square .miles of coal lands in
Kentucky, and yet we buy millions of
ons of coal from Pennsylvania, West
Virginia, Indiana and Tennessee.
Kentucky raises thirty-eight per
cent ot the tobacco crop of the United
States and manufactures only three
per cent ot it.
These are significant facts and our
people should consider them.
There may be other causes for our
lack of progress but It la an estab
lished fact that no state has ever I
prospered under the general property
tax and it is also known that this deplorable
system of taxaCon has always
driven out capital, retarded development
sjrd caused untold losses in population.
The last general assembly passed
an act aasendinr -the state
on taxation which will go far towards
remedylns the evils and It is the duty
of every citizen in the state to vote
for the amendment at the November
election, If It la not ratified at that-
time it will be Impossible to vote on
the question for another fire years
and It has been delayed too long already.
It is time for us to wake up
and, get In line with other prosperous

"He Inherited consumption"! This
Is the way a great many people account
for every case of the disease.
If the parents did tnot have it, some-times'
it Is maintained that'ihe disease
was transmitted 'by inheritance from)
some more distant ancestor. This ia
all nonsense. The new-born baby oij
consumptive parents is not affected
with the disease. However, yifeffi a'
case ot consumption Jn the fejMrtfa
being lgnorantly or carelessly handled
at home, it Is perfectly possible fer a
little child to be infected at any timet
after birth. That, however, is not inheritance;
a healthy adopted baby
would suffer the. same fate. It does
hot matter even if all of your relative
died ot consumption, you need not necessarily
travel the sarne dreary road.
If yon will live as much as possible ia'
the open air, eat plenty of simple, well
cooked foods, and no other, exercise,
batho and sleep regularly, and consult
your physician as soon as. you seem to
be breaking down, there is no reason
why you should die of consumption.
