TAXES MUST BE REDUCED.
(Opelousas Clarion Progress).
Mr. Wm. Fitzmaurice one of the
Slarge taxpayers of the Fourth Ward, '
writes Judge Dupre in part as fol
lows:
"As one of the many citizens of
St. Landty parish, and a taxpayer,
and I never grumble at paying taxes
j when it is within reason and the
money spent judiciously, I hope you
Iwill use your influence as one of
our legislators to take off the burden I
that lays heavy on us. You have al-:
ways stood for the people.
.As to assessments. Lands where I
have resided for twelve (12) years
which sold for two dollars and fifty
_nts per acre to ten (10) dollars, I
are now assessed from ten to forty
dollars an acre. I purchased one tract, i
123 acres, for $24.00 per acre. It
is assessed $30.00 per acre. I bought
sit when prices were soaring upwards, I
two years ago; now that the decline
has set in, it should certainly not be
assessed for more than I paid for it.
Sake the seven hundred acres we
own. This cost us ten dollars an acre.
some of this is assessed at forty dol
]ars per acre. Our revenues from thet
place amount to three hundred .ol- I
ears with oar labor included. Our
taxes are four hundred dollars. Maihy
of the people will lose their homes
Lecause of their inability to meet
aheir taxes. Ura4er present conditions
you drive away homeseekeri. Some
cf these came from the Nortn, but
when they ascertained the amount of
S:axes they would have to pay, .)le:y
would make no purchases.
Yours truly, t

in part, as follows: •
Judge Gilbert L. Dupre
Opelousas, La. t
My Dear Sir and Friend:
I have been interested in your
articles in the New t. rieans dailies
rrelative to a general reductior, of the
tax burdens on the people of this I
.state. I am plea- I t., know that the
people in the sugar parishe, are get
ting busy in Ont-r.n, their protest
iagainst the arbitrary assmesments
made by the State rax Commission. d
The people of this parish are plan- I
ning a mass neetin- for April to
I register their pro:es: against this
undemocratic method of assessment (
and to ask the legislature to curb if
the power of this commissionl. When
the meeting materializes I will send 1
the resolutions to the New Otleans
papers and, of course, you will see
them. v
Taxes are more confiscatory now i
than they were during the recon
istruction period when negro heels
were on white necks. I predict that h
if. the people are not given relief a
soon from conditions as now exist
ing there will be a politied revolu

:To the Editor ClarionPrgu:
I Now that almost every i. cur
- ing and damming the tax commission,
formerly the Board of State Affairs,
it may not be amiss to recall how the
members of the house voted upon this
measure.
I It was made the special order of
the day for June 28th, 1916, and one
hundred votes were cast for its pas
sage. Only nine voted agianst it.
t They were Bennett of Washington,
Carroll, of Sabine, Carruth of East
Feliciana, Dupre of St. Landry, Jor
dan of Richmond, Moresi of Iberia,
Richardson of Bienville, Theriot of
Terrebonne, Winn of Claiborne.
SThat it might become effective it
Swas neccessary to amend articles 225
226 of the constitution. Bowil's housn
bills Nos. 241 and 252 being compan
ion measures. When the motion to
a mend the constitution came up, imn
mediately following the adoption of
house bill 241, only three member
voted against it. These were )Dupre
of St. Landry, Moresi of Iberia, Rich
ardson of Bienville.
I went home, called a meeting and
stated to the people of St. Landry
what a hundred per cent valuation of
their property would lead to. They
cast a majority of six hundred against
the amendment. The country defeat
ed the amendment, but Boss Behr
man turned the tide. So that, I am
well within the mark when I assert "I
told you so;" and am I further within
the mark, *hen .I seek to relieve the
people from this one hundred per
cent valuation, which is confliscating
their homes.
Yours truly,
GILBERT L. DUPRE.
