THE BANK COMPROMISE OF
. . TAXES.
With the banks of Mt. Sterling
the city and county have effected
a compromise. For all concerned
it is our opinion that the adjust
ment and hnal settlement is wise
because both the representatives
of the city and the county are men
of business in whom we have the
utmost comfidence. We believe
in dealing with banks and individuals
exactly alike, what is right for
an individual is correct for a collection
of men. If it is right for a
citizen to assess his property at its
two thirds value like-wise it is for
a corporation, for the laws, for the
government of the one is for the
other also. The merchant, the
farmer, the citizen alike give in
their property at about its two
thirds value; for instance if a farm
actually worth $75, ooo is assesed
at $50,000 and this is correct. A
bank with $75,000 should give in
$50,000. It is just as fair for the
one as the other and if right for the
farm to be given in at $50,000 it is
equaly as just for a bank with $75-000
to give in the same amount.
Upon this basis the city settled
with the banks and we believe our
city representatives did right. The
county was hardly as liberal and
required the banks to settle at 80
cents, which they did,

demands more money will be a
necessity, and it matters not
whether other nations will agree to
it or not the United States will be
forced to the minting of more
money. The Republican party
would issue more bonds, but the
