TAXING MORTGAGED PROPERTY.
iFrom the St. Louis Republican )
The injustice of taxing mortgaged prop
ertv to the nominal owner and the debt
against it to the holder is universally ad
nutted. I he system rests on the talse as
sumption that by placing a mortgage on
the property there is an increase of taxable
values which is absurd. If a farm worth
$2,000 is mortgaged for $1,000 there is no
new value created; but the law, assuming
that there is, now levies u tax on $:i,000
taxing the owner on the full value of the
farm. $2,000, although his interest is only
$1,000, and at the same time taxing or at
tempting to tax themortgagee on the $1,000
note which lie holds against the owner.
The excuse for this injustice is that the
uiortngeo cannot be reached; his half in
tt-rest in the property is represented by a
note fur $1,000 which ho holds and which
he reiibes to return to the assessor. There
tore the law taxes the owner on the full
value of the property, although ho really
owns only a halt-interest in it. Tl.u dith
cwlty in the wav, it is thought, can be. ob
viated, and thn equities involved secured
by a very simply bill introduced into the
Massachusetts legislature bv Mr. Monot
The bill abolishes taxes on notes secured by
mortgages on real estate, nnd levies the tax
on the property alone; but it tho owne
pays the tax, it gives him a set-off against
the next interest payment equal to what
would he the mort gagee's proper share of it
and it the mortgagee pays the tax it givi
him a similar claim against the owner
the property is worth $2,000 and the mort
gage on it but $1,000 at H per cent then
each party having a half-interest in thr
property could be required to pay one-half
the taxes, amounting to one nnd one-half
per cent, or$:;0, he paid by the owner, he
would have a right to charge one-hilf, or
$lo to the mortgagee, and when the time
came round lor paying the interest on his
note, he would deduct $13 from tho amount
due. By this process the state would get
all the tuxes on. tho property, without fore
ing the debtor to pay ou a greater interw
than he actually owns.
MRS. LOGAN'S GUDGEONS.
NO WONDEIl II Ell JOHN CAN HE ELECTED TO
THE SENATE. ,
(From the Springfield Republican Letter.)
Aii Illiuoisan has given me an account of
Mrs. Gi'ii. Logan's manner of catching
gudgeons ydept members of the Illinois
legislature. It is a beautiful elegant sort
of fishing, There is no pea-jacket required
no rubber boots, no ugly hook catching in
to one's fingers, no disagreeable- bait.
I zaack Walton would have been ashamed
at his bungling methods if he could have
witnessed hers. This fair , tisherwoman
clothes herself in silk and lace; tit the
proper time she moves into the m-ighlior-hood
of the fish (Springfield, III.) She
take parlors at the first 'hotel, quietly pro
cures the names of the various gudgeon,
and studies up their private history; then
assembling her friends about her from day
to day, waits for tho fish to come into her
net, ami she does not wait long. Gudgeon
like, in they come. Thinking themselves
very shrewd, believing that at anytime they
can withdraw, counting on their power of
resistance to burst the meshes, in they suit,
fin to fin. Here comes a hugh fellow tho
fair angler has been waiting for. She knows
nil about him.more than he knows about him
self. "Why, Dr. Clark, lipw do you do? I
wondered if you were not coining to see
iiie. I was so glad when I heard you had
betni re-clecl'.'d, though of course I knew
you would he. How is Mi's. Clark'" And
so she runs on, giving him his fill of flat
tery, He wonders how she knew he was
Dr. Clark. He is pleased to 'rind this
brilliant lady o greatly interested in him
and his, but, before he has had time to
gather together his dazzeled and tickled
wits, the siren voice proceeds! "Let me
help you to a cup of coffee, doctor. Do
you take sugar? Here aro n couple of
good lumps. DiH-tor, you nro ifoinif to
voto tor my husband nro you not? Now
you will won.t you?'' And tho irudcoo
ays yes. And a few moments later as hu
goes away, ho says to his friend, who called
with Mm: rtWhy, d you know what I

before I thought what I was doing. And
I can't go buck on my promise to a wo

THE NEW PENSION BILL.
WHO AUE ENTITLED TO IlECEIVE BENEFITS.
The only persons who will be benefited
by the passage of the new pension bill are
soldiers ami dependant parents who failed
to apply until rive years had eiapsed alter
their right accrued; and of these two
classes there are ot'tho former fifty per cent
that are not entitled to more than four ilollurs
per month, und many only two dollars;
while of the latter alj are entitled to neith
er more or less than eight dollars per
month, and there, are only a few thousand
of them. Some dependant parents now on
the rolls are entitled under tliu arrears act,
to as many as ten years' pension, amount
ing to $'.)(!), but they are comparatively
few. Some soldiers may be entitled to the
siune amount, but from , actual . personal
knowledge of several hundred pensions
,'rantcd within the last four years there aro
now 40,000 pensioners on the pension rolls ,
who come within provisions of tho act.
Their arrearage will no exceed $000 each;
therefore from $:!0,000,00'l to $40,000,000
is qui;e a liberal estimate of the demands
the new bill will make on the treasury.

THE VASTY, OK SPIKITS OF
From Evausville Tribune
Since the Warrick conty flatiron sailed
so swanliko into noriety nnd sailed out
again, we have been inclined to look with,
doubt and incredulity upon alleged sus
pensions ot natural laws and miraculous
manifestations, yet things that occurred.
last night in the sleeping room of Mers
Charles B. Lames and Oeorge E. Ouver,.
lias puzzled "more abler' men tluin we?
pretend to be, to account tor them on philo
sophical grounds. About 11 :'o0 last night
after the gentlemen named had retired, they
were somewhat annoyed by the rappings,
which appeared to be in the hall outside.
They at first attributid them to Mr. Reid,
the architect, but as they coutiued aud Mr;
Oliver sought Mr. Reid's door tolcaru what
joke ho was playing off, ho found that the
gentleman was not within. He returned to
his room and to bed, and hardly got settled
when the clock in Mr. Eames office began
to strike and not content with telling tho
hour,struk 12, 1, 2, ;t, and not only stopped
striking, but stopped running alsb, though it
had not run down. Marvelous as this seem
ed the gentleman tried to go to sleep and.
had nearly succeeded when a heavy crash
of some falling body nwukencd them, and
they rose and made another search, result
ing in the discovery of nothing out of place
or anything that could have produced the
sound. Mr. Eamos started his clock tvyvfl,,
and it is running still, but when they re
turned to bed thy raps were resumed. Mr.
Oliver, who has never attended a spiritual
manifestation, asked, "Is that aspiriti'' unci
quick came three raps which spirtuaiist
recognize as an affirmative. To the ques
tion. What do you want ?" came a series of
confused knocks, but tho single knock,
negative, and the triple, affirmative, were
returned to other answers, the latter caus
ing some consternation when returned tho
questions: "Do you want me.'" or "do
you want Fames j"
About 2 o'clock the manifestations ceas
ed, and the gentlemen slept till morning,
but when Mr. Oliver rose and found the
door he remembered distinctly to have fas
tened on the inside, unfastened, his amaze
ment was increased.
Spiritualists who are familliar with such
phenomena will probably lie invited to in
vestigate this case, and ascertain the source
and purpose of the marvelous occurrences.
