BOL. MIIXBR, .Editor. TKOY, KANSAS: Thursday, : : : : January 29, 1874. Why Taxes are High. The liigls taxes in Kaunas urine in part, no 'onbt, from useless and extravagant rxpewli ares and niUmanagcinrnt; lint that is not tbn nly canse, nor the principal one. It is because f the vast amount of xirnperrr that escapes tax ationprincipally the money of the banker, tho shaver, and the speculator. We have thought some of lookiug oer the tax books, and making a list of persona known to bare thousands of dol lars loaned out at usnrions rates "f interest, and showiug the pitiful amounts which they return to the assessor, under oath. These meii commit forgsry every year, to eacane their jnst propor tion of the taxes. The banker ho subrtitutes . borrowed Government bonds for his money on the 6rst of March, and then docs not give in the full amount of hit actual cash, is a jieriiin r. We know a man who has thousands of dollars invested in loans and sharing speculations, and of whom mouey can be bnrrowed at any time, on short time and at high rates of interest; Jet he has never returned to the assessor but little over $1,000. Wo know a young, numartied man, who gave in some $450, and refused to do that until forced to it, who is known to have several thou sand dollars loaned out in bis neighborhood, at big interest; and in addition to thin, it has been ascertained that lis had large sums loaned bImj where. This fact has recently been divulgrd lit the failare of a person whose note ho hrld fur something near$I,000, stint his extreme grief over the loss of this large tarn that he'conccalcd from the assessor. Did that man commit 'perjury, Tbsro are hundreds of similar casc,1hat could be unearthed with but little trouble. This is an evil for which there ought to bo eoino remedy. Real estate cannot be concealed, but has to bear not only its own proportion of taxes, but that which should be borne by hidden capital and other personal property npon which the owners arc realizing a largo profit. Wht. We are asked, why we are so particular and "touch" npon tho point of having the real names of the writers of communications, especi ally when they contain simply ordinary items of news. The reason ought to be so patent as to avoid the necessity of even asking the question. Items seemingly the most inotfensive, and appa rently only matters of news, may be mado to con ceal some slander, or some malicions thrnst of enmity, unobserved by the editor, who is unac quainted with the circumstances, bnt plainly ap parent and keenly felt by those iu the secret. We must have tho name of the author, to secure ns against censure or difficulty from irresponsi ble communications, in case snch things ohouM happen. While we shall always carefully con ceal tho names of writers of inoffensive commu nications, when so desired, we shall not hesitate to expose thoso who seek personal revenge or the gratification of malice through the medium of a newspaper commnmcalion. Simply a joke may be intended, and often give offence; but often it is meant moro seriously than a joke. We shall endeavor to satisfy oursclf upon such points, be fore divulging the names of writers. Another reason, and a sufficient one of itself, aside from the foregoing, is, that if an editor is desired to publish the production of another, he is entitled, as a matter of principle, to know who the writer is. A stranger might as well expect to visit in your family, cat at your table, and sleep in your bed, fur a week or loorr, without making him elf known, as a writer to make nse of tho col nmns of a newspaper while remaining unknown to the editor. A Bad Stout. Sunday' Kansas Citv Time contains almost an entire page devoted to Kansas rascality, bribery and corruption, in which Sena tor Ingalli, Marshal Tough, District Attorney Scofield, County Attorney Ryan, and others, are implicated, together with other prominent men not named, and which, if true, ought to damn every man connected with it. Tho Timet is a very sensational papor, and devoted principally to saying hard things of the Republicans of Kan sas. We have no donbt that most of this story is sensation, bnt there is much of it that sounds true, in the light of recent revelations and move ments, and we are inclined to believe it. The greater part of this stuff comes from Asa Hair jrrove, formerly State Auditor, now of Indepen dence. Whether true or not, Huirgrove adver tises himself to the world as a most abject wretch, who engaged in the work of bribing members of the Legislature, then virtually committed per jury before an investigation committee, and af terwards placed himself iu the hands of a corrupt ring, to testify or refaso to testify, at their pleas ure, before a Court of Jnst ice all for the promise of a money consideration. Ami he tells this, he says, because he is solicitous for the succcsof purity and reform and becanse his purchasers failed to pay his price! Such is the ones popular Asa Ilairgrove, now a marked political shyster and bummer. What is the statement of such a man worth f EF" Col. Johnston has received an opinion from the Attorney-General, to the effect that a SberUTia not entitled, by law, to receive pay for taking care of public property, unless there is a contract to that effect. Wa did not know that there was a legal qnestloo involved ; bat it strikes os that, if there maybe a contract for snch a purpose, the Sheriff is entitled to it, or may be come entitled that the law does not prohibit it. There are a great many things not specially pro vided for by law, for which the Commissioners Aave authority to allow pay. Although we are ntrt an Attorney-General, nor a County Attorney, it looks reasonable to us, that if a Sheriff: does -certain work, and a County Board pays him for it, the Board does no more than is right, and the JSberiffiis .entitled to his money. t7TbeBsue of Representatives, last week,!

Its pas sage vfnl& he unjust to those who have made sacrifice. ta jay their taxes in the proper time, .and would be a bad precedent for the future. .W The Kansas Legislature is hammering m v on the Senatorial election. Jo choice yet, and I nqunncn prospect ont. They scatter worse than an,oId flint-lock musket loaded with bird-shot. Everybody is getting some Totes, and noliodv enough to encourage him. Rippey received one rote, fhs first- hallo gttodVucIcns to increavi from. Needs Orerfcautliafft It has ran in onx mind, for some time past, that the transactions of the Collector of Internal Rev enue, for this State, needed overhauling. They certainly do, ir there are many of the kind of one wp beard of the other day. Last Summer, John Morton, of White Cond, purchased a stock of good atAxtel, in Marshall County, and went iuto business there. Among other articles, ho sold whiskey. He had a difficulty with the form er owner of the store, who rcpleviued the goods. A suit was the result, which was decided in No vember, and Morton obtained Judgment fur some $3(10. As one means of revenge, some enemy reported him as having been selling liquor with out a Government Revenue License. The Drpn ty Uulted States Marshal went oat there, accom panied by the son and Deputy of the Revenue Collector, and last week they were in this Conn ty, hunting for Morton, to arrest him. But he, having got wind of it, bad gone to Leavenworth, to investigate instead of being investigated. It seems that, wbenhecommenced business, be wrote to C. i Van Bnskirk, of White Cloud, asking him to send the amount fur a license to the Col lector, and obtain the papers. Van Bnskirk did scud the amount, in a postal money onlr, and Morton went on with his business, exjirrting his lirense in a few days; but in consequence of his legal troubles, left before receiving it. When he went to Leavenworth, last.wesk, the Collector, OeorgeT. Ajithouy,.aaid that -he had Lever re ceived the money order nor the applcatimi for a license. He suggested that, no doubt, the scud er of the tinier bad made a mistake, and sent the order to D. R. Anthony, who probably had drawn ami kept it; and the result was, Morton was cninpellrd to pay him $50, to settle the matter. Upon hearing of this, CM K. Van Bnnkirk made an examination of tti'cnonejr order 'book 'Sit the White Cloud IVuI-OuIlc, and fonnd that the or der was drawn correctly in Civnr of George T. Anthony, who had got the money on it. Thus he pocketed f25 sent for license, extorted JoO more from Morton, and resorted to the subter fuge of accusing D. R. Anthony of keeping $X which had been sent him by mistake, knowing it did not belong to him. Whatever bad things may Iw charged against 1). R. Anthony, we do not think he has gut so low as to steal l&. The above is the statement given to us. For our part, we have never had the exalted uj'inion of Collector Anthony' integrity that some others have professed, and are inclined to lwlicve the story. If he has dune so in tin av, belus doubtless done it others; and ho should be trot ted throngh on the fast line. St. Nicholas. SI. Xickotai for February opens with a charming little poeni by W. C. Bryant, and then, on the very first page, the stories be gin with a well-told tale of the middle ages, "Bianra and Bppo," by J. S. Stacy, full of the flavor of youthful chivalry, and illustrated by a most cxqmsite engraving by Miss Scan noil. Among the other short stories wo have "How the He ivcns Fell," by Roviter Johnson, illotra- tettliy II. L. Stephens; "How Jamie Had His Own Way," by Miss Mary K. Prescott; " What St. Valentine Did forMilly," by Snsan Coolidge; all good and each one with a character of its own. Besides these, there are the three serials, "Fast Friends," by J. T. Trowbridge, illnstrated by White; "Nimpo's Trimbles," by Olive Thome, with a drawing by Miss Hillock; and "What Might Have Been Kxpectcd," by Frank R. Stock ton, with an illustration by W. L. Shepp.ird, and ono by Sol. Eytinge. Among tho pictures is a very enrinus and amusing drawiug by F. Beard, showing how little boys may change into frogs if they plsy leap-frog too much. Thero are use ful articles on the Velocity ef Light, Wood-Carving, aud about that enrions animal the Manatee. C.S.Stephens, who has written so much for " Our Youug FM$,n describes a "Moose Hunt in Maine; and thero is a short resume nf Stanley's recent books for boys, bringing in some startling adventures with wild animals in Africa, with pictures that will charm the heartut' wany-a youngster A poem, "What's the FnnT by Olive A.

There are also poems by Celia Thaxter, Silas Dinsmore, Mary E. C. Wyeth who contributes some baby valen tine verses; and a bumofons ballad by Theopbi lus Higgtnbntbam, called "Mild Farmer Jones and tho Nanghty Boy," which is illustrated by nine very funny Silhouettes by Hupkinr. Two pages for little folks are given this month; and there is some capital talk from " Jack-in-1 he Pulpit;" a lively pantomime for parlor acting, by G. B. Bartlett, well known in that connection to the readers of " Our Youug FolLt;" and a well-fiiled Riddle Box. The Frontispiece, by W. Brooks, entitled "In Sister's Care," is a vigo rous, well-drawn picture. This number of St. Nicholas, like the last, while it keeps its in dividuslity in every particular, shows a decided disposition to accept freely every advantage of fered by its late absorption of "Our Young Foil:" Tho old readers of the latter magazine will recognize several of their favorite authors in this number of St. Nicholas, which, by the way, abounds in illustrations, there being ne less than fifty pictures in it, all of them good, ana some oi mem remarkably fine. ty "ABusunrLx Fiend; ob, Through: tite Fibs," is the startling name of a new book by Mrs. Emma D.

There ate some who are so exceedingly fearful that a railroad pass will cor rupt them, and influence their-action in legisla tion. Snrh men alinuM, not ts-uet tlirniaelrea from hometint should Seep within doors. They need protectors. We hold onrself in readiness to accept all railroad passes that offer, and to nse them whenever opportunity offers. We are not afraid of their making ns do something that we don't waut to. IjT A Democratic paper says a war is spring ing up between Grant and Morton, as to which shall be the next Presideut; and that it is not at all improbable that Grant will retnm to the Democratic party.
