John F. Hyatt, of Albany,
N. Y., Is Relieved of Se
vere Attack of Rheuma
tism of Many Years'
"I am now .seventy-two' years old
and am just getting rid of a fifteen
year case of rheumatism that had
me so crippled up I could not walk,"
said John F. Hyatt, 227 Pearl St.,
Albany, N. Y in relating his re
markable experience with Tanlac, re
cently. Mr. Hyatt was chairman of
the committee in charge of building
the Albany County Courthouse/ and
as four times elected a member of
the County Board of Supervisors. At
present Mr. Hyatt is Assistant Super
intendent of the Albany County
Courthouse, with offices in the build
"I don't believe," he continued,
"anybody cquld have* rheumatism any
worse than I did, and my case was of
such Jong standing I didn't expect to
ever get over it. I was unable to
walk except for-a short distance, sup
ported with a cane, and even then
the pains strifck me every time I took
a step. My legs, hips and ankles hurt
something awful and my joints were,
stiff and- achy. I couldn't cross my
leg without having to lift it up with
my hands, and to turn over in bed,
why, the pains nearly killed me.
"My appetite was gone and the
sight of food nauseated me. My
stomach was out of order, and I had
a sluggish, heavy feeling all the time.
I was weak, off in weight and dis
couraged so that it looked like I
might as well quit trying to ever get

St. PaulAmong the important bills
passed by the Minnesota 1921 Legisla
ture the foregoing is a brief summary.
Two of the laws enacted, the tonnage
tax and the "farmers program,"
formed principal issues in the cam
paign. A short review of the im
portant legislation is as follows:
After three months of discussion, a
law was passed providing for a 6 per
cent tax on the occupation of mining.
The attorney-general had ruled that
the original tonnage tax bills should
be so redrafted as to provide for an"
occupation tax. Considerable opposi
tion to a tax, based on the occupational
theory, developed, but it was not suf
ficient to stem the tide for some sort
of a tax on the iron mining industry.
Enactment of the occupation tax on
mining, the so-called tonnage tax sub
stitute, means that the issue has now
been transferred to the courts of the
land. It is certain that the mining
companies will wage a bitter legal bat
tle in testing the validity of the law.
Constitutional Tax Amendment.
The people of Minnesota will have
an opportunity to pass on the theory
of an occupation tax on mining. Both
houses passed the bill to submit a con
stitutional amendment on the subject
to the voters at the next election.
Limiting Tax Expenditure.
Following the signing of the so
called tonnage tax measure, Governor
Preus got behind a bill to limit the ex
penditures on the Iron Ranges. A bill
finally passed both Houses, placing a
limitation of $100 per capita for local
purposes and $60 per capita for school
purposes. The fight on the per capita
tax bill, coming in4he closing hours of
the session, "was one of the most spec
tacular and acrimonious of the entire
&0 days. The original bill provided for
a limitation of $50 for loca) purposes
and $40 for schools. The House made
the amendments to increase these
The Farmers Program.
Legislation affecting the farmers of
Minnesota took the lead from the very
start. A result an agricultural pro
gram of' far-reaching importance was
enacted into law, the outstanding fea
tures of which are:
The co-operation law of 1919 was ex
tended to permit the Federation of lo
cal cto-operative 'associations into large

Provision is made for the organiza

Counties are permitted, under the
Bissette law, to appropriate money for
the clearing of lands that are agricul

A resolution passed by both the
House and Senate provides that unless
the desired changes in the federal
grain standards, be granted by the Bu
reau of Markets at Washington, the
state Board of Grain Appeals is re
quired to re-establish Minnesota grades
based upon the standards in vogue
prior to the passage of the Federa
Gram Standards act.
The state road tax on motor vehicles
was fixed at 2 per cent of the list price
of a car. The House originally fixed
the tax at 1.8 per cent, and the Sen
ate at 2.25 per cent. The 2 per cent
tax was the compromise. This tax law
provides for a tax of 2 per cent of the
list price of a car for the first three
years. Th tax for the fourth and
fifth years in the life of a car is fixed
at 2 per cent of three-quarters of the
list price. After the fifth year the
Value of a car is figured at one-half of
the list price. The minimum tax un
der this law is $12 and, it is said, that
the average tax will be approximately
Under the terms of the third big bill

which had the foresight to develop the
trunk highways included in the Bab
cock system will be reimbursed out of
the highway fund. Approximately
$23,000,000 was spenf in this manner
by 2S counties.
A series of laws was passed covering
this whole subject. The main one pro
vides for the creation of an industrial
commission, made up of three mem
bers, which will not only administer
the compensation insurance law, but
will take over supervision of the La
bor department and all its branches.
A law was passed during the session
permitting political parties to hold pre
primary conventions, for the purpose
of endorsing candidates for state and
Only one other law affecting elec

Street railway systems in Minnesota
are placed under control of the State
Railroad and Warehouse commission
so far as\|the making of rates and^val
uation are concerned.
The law gives to city councils com
plete control over service, extensions,
and routing, and makes the local gov
erning bodies parties to the valuation
porceedings before the state commis
sion. The state commission, however,
is given exclusive and initial right to
regulate rates, subject to appeal to the
courts. Taxing Telephone Earnings.
Gross earnings of telephone com
panies, now taxed at 3 per cent, will
be taxed at 4 per cent, under the law.
Three bills, having for their purpose
the making of women eligible as
jurors, were passed. The first amends
the law, specifying the qualifications
for jurors to include the words "men
or women, or both." The second gives
the district court the power to excuse
women fronr jury service at its discre
tion. The third provides for the ap
pointment of women bailiffs in all
caaes where there are women on juries.
A bill permitting cities to take ad
vantage of the so-called Shepard
Towner bill appropriating money for
maternity and infancy work was
passed. Street Trades Law.
The so-called street trades bill, af
fecting newsboys, was sponsored by
women's organizations, particularly
the League of Women Voters, so it can
be included under the general head of
Both House and Senate authorized
the appointment of interim commis
sions to study the whole question of
taxation and revenues in Minnesota.
During the closing hours of the ses
sion both bcanches passed a bill to
permit the state and the city of Min
neapolis to exchange certain pieces of
property in-order to provide a site for
an Armory-Auditorium adjacent to the
grounds of the Dun woody Industrial in
Two laws having to dx with the
charter were passed. The first, termed
the charter enab^ng act, was practic
ally a repassage of the original charter
bill, in order to cure all possible de
fects. The second, known as the char
ter curajtive act, defines more clearly
the purposes of the charter. It spe
cifically includes,all "special and gen
eral laws" as being included under the
purposes of the charter. It also in
cludes all moneys and credits in the
citv valuation on which bonded indebt
edness may be made to the amount of
10 per cent.
The bills affecting Minneapolis and
Hennepin county-were restricted, how
ever, due largely to the stand taken
by delegations in both senate and
house against the consideration of
matters which could be cared for un
der the Home Rule charter.
A law to permit the sale of Elwell
bonds at less than par was passed in
order that Minneapolis might market
approximately $1,200,000 worth of
bonds foV public improvements.
The Legislature authorized the issu
ance of $750,000 worth of bonds for an
addition to the tuberculosis si natorium
at Glen Lake.
