A few years ago and under the old law, at the annual public sale of lands, by the, county treasurer, for delin quent taxes, there were always buyers who were willing to pay the amount of taxes due and receive therefore a certificate of purchase. It was a profitable and a safe investment. Un der the new law, however, there are no bidders and our county is rapidly becoming a land syndicate, being com pelled to bid in almost the entire list of lands sold for takes. The result is that the taxes necessary for the sup port of state, county and public schools are short, necessitating a tax levy the following year. In other words, those who pay their taxes when due, must bear the additional burden imposed on account of those who are delinquent. This is entirely wrong in theory and a great injustice to those who pay taxes, many of whom are compelled to make sacrifices in order to pay their legitimate share of the expenses of government. Like the laws of the Aledes and Persians, the statute providing for the payment of takes are inexorable, but when an individual contributes his exact pro portion he should not then be com pelled to pay more on account of the carelessness or delinquency of some other person. And the burden is specially grievous at this present time, owing to crop failures and gen eral depression of business. To fully realize how the present law operates in this county, we would suggest that our readers interview the county treasurer and look at his record of tax sales The law is a failure and, in stead of being a benefit to our tax payers, isapositive injury, compelling them to pay each year more than their just proportion. The Republi can party is not responsible for the enactment of this law, but we are not now writing from a partisan stand point. It has been tried and found wanting and should, in our opinion, be repealed by our next legislature. If not soon repealed it will work an almost irreparable injury to our coun ty, and the same conditions will apply to most of the counties of the state. Tiik Union Pacific railway has been sued by a shipper at Hays City, Kan sas, to recover the difference he has paid for freight between the compa ny's schedule of rates and the rates fixed by the Populist board of railroad commiseioners in 1894. The amount involved is less than $100, but the suit raises the question of the validity of the board's schedule, and unless it be defeated it will open the way for numerous actions of a similar charac ter all over the state, not only against the Union Pacific, but against all of the other railroad companies. The board's schedule was practically the maximum freight rate bill which the Populist state senate passed in 1893, and it was adopted by the board, as was well understood at the time as a party measure, in the expectation of bringing out prominently in the cam paign, then pending, the railroad issue, it was hoped that the new schedule, being a sweeping reduction of freight rates, would draw to the Populist ticket the shippers of the state. The scheme was adopted early in the campaign for some reason or other, and in the closing days of the campaign little attention was paid to it. The Populist leaders explained that the board could not enforce its order and it was for the shippers to take individual cases into the courts and thus force to an issue the ques tion of the board's right to make the order. No suits were brought, how ever, and the matter was forgotten until now the Hays City suit revives recellections of it. Preliminary to the trial of the case a requisition has been made upon the board, now con trolled by Republicans, for a certified copy of the order of 1894, but not a scratch of a pen showing that such an order was ever made can be found in the book where such records are kept. The order will appear in the printed report of the board, now in press, but it will bear no official attestations by the board and its secretary. There also are many copies in existence of the 10,000 printed by order of the board in 1894, but there is some doubt that mere copies will stand in court, and the loss or destruction of the original copy may put an end to the Hays City suit before it comes to trial. Star. A Letter. CniCAGo, Ills., Sep. 2, 1895. C. C. Eestor, Wa-Keeney, Kansas. Dear Sir: The Restaurant Com mission of the Cotton States and In ternotional Exposition to be held in Atlanta have awarded us the coffee contract, so that our "Seal Brand" will be served virtually exclusively inside the grounds. New York Chi cago, Boston and 2s ew Orleans houses were very active in their efforts to se cure this contract, which was finally awarded to us on a basis of superior quality and uniformity of coffee, as was so practically proven at the World's Fair. .Yours very truly, Chase & Sanborn.
