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
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.
