No. 91 mm AII,K0A1)S PAY $i:tO,000 COUNTY TKKSONAIi TAX The 1919 iporsonal taxoa which ho Union Pacific and Burlington rail roads will pay to County Treasurer Souder this montr will, In round num bers, amount to one hundred and thir ty thousand dollars. The Union Pa cific personal tax Is $107,000 and that pf the Burlington $23,000. Tho latter company .handed Its check to Treas urer Spiitler liisjtvcck and tho Union Pacific will issue Us check some day this week. Wo may cuss tho railroads for ex- cossivo freight charges, poor freight sovlco and a dozon otho sins of com- to paying taxes for the support of our BChoos and cunty government, the ralroads arc tho big factor, and if it wore not for the taxes they pay we would have mighty hard sledding keeping our schools In operation and meeting our county expenses. In fact did not these two railroads run through our county, we would nocos sarlly either havo poor school accom modatlons and few county accommo dations or else have taxes so high as to bo almost confiscatory. In viow of tho holp tho railroads aro to us in the way of supporting our schools per haps our crtlcisms of them should be tempered. One thing is sure, tho rail roads aro not escaping their just share of taxation In fabt they, aro really paying on a mo'ro honest valuation than we do as individuals.
