THOSE WHO WILL PAY MORE.
"WVe are told that th(e State inute
ihave more imoitlney, and tihe tax iamnend
nkent is the schemle by whiich tII
people are to be more heavc,\ily t;a,
ed. Somebody must pay Imore taxes
if more taxes are to be colic ted.
Il maLny respects the proposed I;tx
ciheme looks like it is a gold brick
handed to the voters. Telling th,
voters that they are to b)e l1or1'
h;eavily taxd and11 nevertheless witl
have to pay less taxes, looks SOllle
what fishy."
This is read in cold print in a Lou
isiana newspaper, and is an awful cx
ample of the undigested stuff w\iich
editors, front prejudice or inlletia,
,ill soicetilmes permuit to slip ilntC
their columnins. It is obvious that it
wlort, money is raised, more taxec
must be paid into the State treasury,
but no logical and fair person should
make the statement without the at
companying remark that the State
proposes in the system of tax revis.
ion to lighten the burden on the
great mass of tax-payers, by levyi:g
taxation on other sources, that have\
e(ither never borne their just propoPr
tVon of taxation, or have never hee(ll
taxed at all.
It is equally obvious that indiv.d
uals now paying taxes, say on their
real estate, and who also own. an au
tomnobile, deal in futures, or ill
stocks or bonds, will have to ijay
more taxes; and that very larg e,,s.
tates mlust pay a prol)ortionate in her
itance tax, but no one would seritous
ly question the justice of this, unless
it be the individuals themselves
that are most concerned, if they be
tightwads, certainly not the man
whose closest acquaintance with
these larger evidences of wealth, is
a whiff of gasoline as the joy-wagoll
goes by, or whose modest patrilmlony
comes within the exempted class.
But even the individual tax-pay 'r
(of larger wealth will profit by the
segregation of taxes, since if he
does not have to pay both state and
parish taxes on the samIle prolperty,
the aggregate is bound to be less
than the amount he is now I)aying.
No system of taxation is perfect,
but any systiem that seeks to have
the richer man pay his just propor
tion of taxation comes nearer being
perfect than one wherein no sulcCss
ful effort is made to reach hint for
that purpose.
HOME GOVERNMENT ASSURED.
Perhaps in its home govornment
feature, the proposed seplar'ation of
taxes will most appeal to the citi
zen, intelligent and independent, wvho
l\ishes to keep the reins as near at
ihand as possible. The State of Lou
isiana first tried the equalizzation of
assessments through a State hoard,
that was expected to succeed in that
task after securing the complilations
from thie parish assessors. iBut a
t:ial of cigiht years has proven Iow
illpo)ssible such equalization is, ev
en as otlher States have discovered.
lPut thile proposal to segregate the
taxes, leaving to the parishes and
towns thile sole right to tax certain
most obvious objects of taxation,
while the State taxes miore genierial
s5)urces of revenue, whose valucs
may be lmore arbitrarily fixed, \wipes
away at one stroke the whole (iues
tionl of the justness of assessments
11s affecting state taxes. A parish
may assess its lands as it pleases,
lroviding only sufficient revenu, b:y
taxation for ac'tual neetis, or it may
assess ac'orlding to any other ceon
omic plans it has. I'het mlatter wil!
hear no unjust relation to anotir
parishe's, since no other will be af
fected either directly or indirectly.
At present, the question of asn:,.s
monts may nican that the parishls
are bearing dlispl)roportionately the;r
share of state taxation. W\hile un
der the new systemn, as proposed, it
may occur that a parish rich in rail
ways or natural resources may ther-.
by pay mnore to the support of thie
government, tile very nature of these
sources, being more general in na
ture, can be more equitably taxed lby
one commission composed of exlerts.
than would be the case if the assess
imnnts lay with a home official, who
would not take the broader, all-over
the-state view.

DAILY PARADE OF STOCK
Will Be Made at State Fair-Night
Parade Also Promised.
One of the principal drawing cards
at this year's State Fair at Shreveport
will be the parade of the prize-winning
stock. Each afternoon, commencing at
3 o'clock, there will be a grand parade
in front of the big new steel grand
stand in which there will be room to
accommodate all those desiring to wit
ness the scene, and each night there
will be a similar parade in the big
coliseum in which there is a mammoth
arena and elaborate illumination and
plenty of seats.
Heretofore this parade has proved
popular, even without a coliseumr and
with an old grandstand. As new con
veniences have been provided antd ar
rangements made for a parade at night
as well as in the afternoon, this feat
ure of the fair promises to be more
of a drawing card this year than ever
before.
The prize winning cattle, horses and
mules will be shown in these parades.
As a large number of fine animals are
going to be exhibited, the parades
promise to be participated in by nlu
mnerous animals as well as those of
high qualities and beauties.
This parade is told of in detail in the
catalogue, which Secretary IL. N.
Brueggerhoff will gladly mail any one
asking for it. The fair opens Oct 30
and runs eight days.
