IS KENTUCKY IN NEED
CF THE TAXREFORM?
What Happened in "THE COW
CO IMIES" in California
and Why "THE DOG TAX
COUNTIES" in Kentucky
Should Emulate Their Example
Until a few years ago the State of
California wna suffering under the
same system of taxation which prevails
In Kentucky although many efforts
had been made to change It.
The average citizen Is opposed to
Innovations as a general proposition
and while the staff suffered and the
burden of taxation fell heavily on the
small property owner, as It does In
Kentucky, It was hard to arouse the
people and capitalistic classes managed
to keep the old law in effect and
went on hiding their personal property
and escaping taxation, as they do la

"To get more land to pay MORE
A simple careless expression in a
San Francisco newspaper caused a
revolution of feeling and brought
about the change which all
nlans are now proud of.
The newspaper referred to printed
an article to the effect that tho same
old Constitutional Amendment would
be voted on at tho November election
and added facetiously that "the Cow
Counties" would probably vote for It,
and treated It as a joke.
Tho newspaper evidently underestimated
the power of "the Cow Counties"
as this little attempt at witticism
made "the Cow Counties" sit up and
The people in "the Cow Counties"

Is it that farm landa and town property
pay tho bulk of taxes? Why are
the owners of stocks, bonds, notes and
other personal property able to get off

In practice as well as In name?
And such like questions.
Well, the result was "the Cow Counties."

the yoke and the amendment was'
