..nomination was represented in the
| meeting by one of bis active »up
tf porters.
I' The meeting developed into a
: Prat-cl a."» talkfest with alamo here

otpal commission whose function it
Was to draft laws for cities and vil
hfM, four years In congress and
•fat years in Washington in the Span-
Ml claims court.
Michigan’* financial problem vi«
then taken up by the speaker, who
declared that he had given this
problem serious thought long before
any of the other candidates because
ho baa long been cognisant of the
■weakness of the present financial
Machinery. The atate. he said,
needs anew deal all the way
|dround. He cited the growth of the
‘state In the last 10 years, placing
-population at 16 per cent, wealth
>46 per cent, and taxes 110 per cent.
The tax Increase, he declared, was
•ut of all proportion to what it
should be.
‘This is due to our system," he
•aid. "What Is this system? l>et
me tell you In a nutshell. An In
stitution In the western part of the
..State wants a big appropria*lon u

Mr. IMekenia paid his respects to
_ hte opponent on the stage. Mr We*
•alius, by stating that he believed
him to be a man as big in rulnd as
, In body.

said the speaker. I* paid by you
voters. Now. if there were a mil
lion of you in your particular terri
tory It would cost you II a year in
state taxes for every man. woman
and child. That is an exorbitant
tax as you can readily appreciate *
Wesselius spoke of Gov Pingree’s
hard fight to place part of the bur
den of state taxes on the corpora
tions of the atate. declaring that as
railroad commlasloner under Pln
gree he had a hand in the fight. He
said that Gov. Ptngree saved the
voters of the state $4,000,000 a year
I’nder this corporation tax. the
speaker said. Wayne county re
ceived $1,034,000 last year from the
railroads toward the primary school
"But, gentlemen, we must get
down to business and stop the Job
that is now going oc if we want tu
continue to share this tax burden
with the railroads'* shouted Wes
selius. "And what Is this Job?
Why. the state tax commission now
proposes to come to your county
and raise your tax valuations s?*).-
000 000.
“At the time we put our present
tax bill through the legislature. Pin
gree and tho*** who aaaisted him.
Including myself, were not strong
enough to completely best the op
posing power* at Lansing, and the
result was as imperfect a f ax law
as ever graced the books of any
state, but we gained what we par
ticularly wanted and that was the
primary school fund We succeeded
in changing the method of taxing
corporations by •histing the assess
ment from their incomes to their
“Ever since there has been a con
stant effort by the corporations to
shake off this burden. See bow it
is working out. The corporation tax
rate is fixed by dividing tbe total
taxes of the state by the total a*
?*-*sed valuation of the s'ate Now
along comes your tax commission
and double* the assessed valuation*
apd as a natural result halve* the
taxes that will be required of the
corporations I/>ok over your »at
records and you will find 'bat. while
tbe railroad taxes of this state hav*-
remained stationary, your tax**
have increased D2 per cent in the
la»t JO years.
To remedy this situation Wessel
ius proposed that the present s»a**
tax commission be abolished an Ia
new tax body crea'ed, consisting of
the governor, audi'or-general at.d
j the attorney general a? a majority
of the board. He cited the cost <>f
the present tax commission as all
out of propor’ion to its service an-1
de< lared that it far surpass* * the
expense of a similar board 1 .
