on terms of equality. There is but one
safe, sound and just rule, and that is
-uniformity of valuation for similar
kinds and classes of property, every

owner in one county should not pay a
greater, or a less, tax upon a horse, a
cow, or on an acre of land, than the
owner of a horse, cow, or acre of land,
of equal value, in any other county.
"Taxes and assessments should not
be devised simply to show how rich
we are. Enough should be raised for
our actual needs, and no more. The
presence of surplus revenues is always
a tempation to extravagance.

ball and when. First delegates were
chosen to represent the body at the 13th
Texas state federation of labor at Gal

question arose how to pay their ex

annual institution has been created.
Also in view of certain misleading
advertising schemes said to be ad
vanced in EI Paso under the name of
organized labor, while in fact they had
nothing to do with any body of work
