A BAD POLICY
Governor Blease In a statement
declaring his reasons for calling a
special session of the legislature, re
fers to the financial obligations of the
state. It is true that S. T, Carter,
state treasurer, and A. W. Jones,
comptroller general, did arrange for a
loan to carry the state until taxes
begin to come tn, but there is on as
surances that the loan can be extend
ed, and especially at the low rate of
interest secured during the summer.
The governor suggests that the
time for paying taxes should be ex
tended to order to benefit the poor
people. We think this ls a bad prop
osition. About four-fifths of the tax
es of the state are paid by corpora
tions and by large towns and cities.
The corporations would thus be en
abled to keep from paying taxes to
the state and save the Interest on
their money for weeks. Such a law
would not tn the end be of much ben:
cfit to the poor man. * -

of arousing public opinion to thc ne

prominent in politics were discreetly
silent or very mild In their advocacy
of primary reform. He went the lim

week for a year and cheerfully took
upon himself all of thc antagonism

The county has elected four members
of tho hom e, strong and splendid men,
though for the most part unknown to
the state. He ls contending for thc
fifth place with a young man, unknown
who seems to have received the solid
Blease vote and some anti-Mease sup
port. The county*is proud of its tri
umph over Blease and is forgetful of

will hope for a more consistent re

of the state want the services of-John

him at the head of its ticket. Rich

opportunity to have the Influence in
