1 axe not considered dangerous, always violated ike provisions ofcwtie
erhaps of greater importance to theal
of the state than any other
amendment to our primary laws, or, if
approved by the people, will have more
influence upon the political, social, in
dustrial and commercial interests or the
city and state than any legal enact
ment since the state was organized.
I have waited to hear from some of
its advocates as to what is to be gained
who is to be profited by itwhat
manner of tax laws and principles* or
lack of principles, they wish and in
tend to have substituted for our pres
ent system.
Thi3 amendment, if carried, will en
able the legislature to pass any tax laws
which it may choose to enact without
reference to any principles of right or
equality other than the unimportant re
striction that it must be "uniform
upon the same class of subiects." This
it within the power of the leg
islature to pass any manner of unjust or
unequal tax laws and there will be no
method of appeal if this provision is
adopted as part of the organic law.
The studied care with which all limi
tations on the taxing power of thevalue,
legislature are eliminated-all reference
to equality, fairness or uniformity
seems to indicate that such principles
were not intended to prevail in our fu
ture tax system. Otherwise there is no
reason for striking out all limitations.
The prospective outcome of this will
be tax laws more radical, unfair, un
equal and unsatisfactory than our pres
ent system.
This move seems to have originated'
with, or has been encouraged by some
of our business men and associations
here in Minneapolis and elsewhere. The
socialists and single taxers and some
of the large corporate interests are
favoring it. The people generally have
seemingly not paid much attention to it.
Many of our citizens have been preju
diced against our tax laws for being
administered to the disadvantage or
the city and its general interests-*for
excessive valuations being placed on
our city property above those in oth
er parts of the stater thru which the
taxpayers have been called upon to
pay more than their share of the state
taxes, while at the same time the busi
ness men have been inexcusably at
tacked as tax shirkers from which a
prejudice has developed against the city
thru the state.
There has been much complaint of
our "antiquated and outgrown system
of taxation," and of its inequality of
application to different classes of citi
zens and property, especially here in
Minneapolis. And upon this presump
tion many persons are possessed 'w^th
the idea that a radical change of this
kind will enable the legislature, thru
the presumed advice, counsel or influ
ence of each of the different classes, all
recommending different and opposite,
radical and conflicting changes, to se
cure tax laws which will be more sat
isfactory to them.
The most general complaint as to our
iresent laws is based upon the difficuL
or inability or indisposition to make
a fair, uniform assessment of personal
propertythat as a matter of fact per
sonal property ought not to be taxed,
at least not in the manner or methods
now in practice.
They would eliminate from taxation
mortgages, credits, moneys, stocks,
bonds, etc., and rely upon putting the
weight of taxation upon real estate and
its improvements and public utility cor
porations and an income tax.
On the contrary others are seeking
to enlarge the range of personal tax
assessments. One of the most emphat
and authoritative complaints, re
peated frequently, is that large num
of people here in the city have
deposits in the sayings banks and other
institutions, amounting to
something like $60,000,000 which
should be taxed, and thru the agency of
this amendment and the laws that
would follow, enable them to reach this
amount of personal property.
And altho aware of the fact that it is
the savings and balances almost entire
ly of the smaller property owners, yet
there should nevertheless be means of
reaching it. This would not in any
manner indicate a deske to relieve-per
sonal property of taxation.
The tax amendment itself also would
indicate the same thing. This pro
vides that "there may be exempted
from taxation personal property not
exceeding in value $200 for each house
hold, individual or head of a family, as
the legislature may determine." On
the contrary the present constitution
provides that "personal property to an
amount not exceeding in value $200 for
each individual, shall by general laws
be exempted from taxation.''
The reason assigned for this change
is that from reports of a former tax
commission and other sources it is
found that a very extended custom pre
vails of securing exemption for many
times the $200 limitation by claiming
that the property is owned by different
of the household to such ex
tent that when added to the under
valuations allowed in families by
assessor, the larger part of the smaller
personal property holdings are exempt
ed from taxation to the extent of many
times the amount intended by the law.
For this reason it was left for the legis
lature to refuse all exemption if so de
termined, or to pass such rigid restric
tions and limitations as to family or
household ownership and as to valua
tions that -advantage could not be tak
en of this clause.
The' provision with reference to ex
emption of "church property" ia alcation,
ready resulting in conflict of opinion
from restricted views and the general
indefiniteness and vagueness of this
provision. 1
Our present constitution provides that
"all churches, church property used for
purposes, and houses of wor
ship shall, by general laws, be "exempted
from taxation?'
Taking this authoritative definition
which has prevailed since the state was
organized and the common understand
ing of what is meant by "church prop-
erty,"" and it undoubtedly covers only
the property used for direct religious
purposes, and excludes property held
as an endowment or for rent or profit
or for any other purpose, excepting di
rect religious purposes.
This amendment does not limit the
exemption to "church property" used
for religious purposes, either as churches
or any other manner of houses of wor
ship, but specifically says "all church
What is known in all law and correct
definitions of the word "church" re
fers not to a building, but to an eccle
siastical body or church organization,
and when so expressed as referring to
"church property," it means any real
estate or improvements or any manner
of personal property. And I will ven
ture to say that no decision or defini
tion of those words or terms can be
ftfund that disputes this conclusion.
And while this exemption might not
be seriously obiectionable or detrimen
tal to the general educational or relig"
ions interests of the state, vet it would
be a seriousxbone of contention.

The Tax Amendment.,
To the Editor of Ihe Journal.
The question of the adoption of
the proposed tax amendment to
our constitution is one that should
receive serious consideration by thehigh
people to far greater extent than
has or is likely to be given it. I is
^^^W$?& Wf^'
constitution is "irom a restricted point
of view nnddubtedly true. But this
has met at least the practical appro
val of the people of all parts of the
state, the legislature, the low and the
courts, the county officialsin
fact, every interest in'the state has
conceded the reasonableness and natur
approximations towards equality
which was principal intention of
the constitutional provision.
If taxation is uniformly spread over
the different kinds of property, it is not
so material as to the rate of valuation
as to the uniformity. Here in Minne
sota, as a general estimate of the valu
ation t^e counties generally, is for
the farming districts and smaller towns
and cities probably not as much as 20
per cent of the actual cash valuation
of personal property properly subject
to taxation. The real estate and im
provements in these districts will prob
ably not run 'above 25 per cent, and
in general with considerable uniformity
as the assessors in the different coun
ties seem to work towards a general
understanding and uniformity.
In the other larger cities of the state
outside of Minneapolis the valuations
have been somewhat higher than in the
counties generally, but not at as high
a rate as in our city.
In Minneapolis the personal property
properly subject to taxation will prob
ably average 30 per cent of its market
not counting bank deposits,
which are not considered as a legiti
mate source of taxation in any part of
the state, excepting as to the balances
of the larger taxpayers as far as they
can be reached. Our real estate is now
valued at alou 50 per cent of its mar
ket value, faking the whole aggregate
valuation as compared with its assessed
value, and an excess of valuation even
above this in proportion to market
value has prevailed for many years to
the detriment and disadvantage of the
city and the taxpayers.
That personal taxes are not uniformly
and equally collected is undoubtedly
true, and it is equally true that the
smaller taxpayers and those who pay
no taxes constitute the greater portion
of the people who have their advan
tages of citizenship at much less rela
tive cost than the larger taxpayers.
If the aggregate value of all the prop
erty of those who pay the larger tax
bills, including all property, personal
and real, rightfully subject to taxation,
including all that is taxed and all that
should beand take the percentage of
taxes paidand then take all other
property rightfully subject to taxation
and find the percentage of taxes paid
on the aggregate value, and it will
probably run a considerable fraction
It seems quite certain that interested
parties could not secure enactments
that would entirely eliminate personal
property taxation. There is no reason
why all such property should be exrebateby
empted from direct taxation unless
there was put in its stead an income
tax that would reach all sources of
wages, salary and profit. This would
not only complicateuncertainty, and becomerequir expen
sive to'rth 'taxpayers, but it "would
brino/-L arpntpr /I7IPOT+O4+-- Tan,,,
all profit and loss and income from all
sources, to separate actual profits from
gross receipts and complicate beyond
all measure the tax affairs of every
citizen beyond that of having only to
estimate the value of personal property.
If the tax should apply to income
from real property, including rents and
earnings from land in the way of crops
or farm or garden produce, it would
be a double tax, as the land and im
provements would be paying taxes di
rect. If it applied to income from
stocks and bonds resting on property
that already pays its share of tax on
the property values it would be also
a double taxation.
The difficulty of determining cor
rectly and obtaining reliable returns
would far exceedt thdesire
in reaching personal property direct,
in tact, the real difficulty in our per
sonal-property taxation is that our offi
the law to any greater extent. The
assessors in the state generally seek
to favor their own locality, and par
ticularly the common people. Thev

probably it will only disappear entirely with
government ownership. I do not believe that a

a judge in the state of Nebraska whose decis

Such a tonic as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Mrs. D. 0. Wedding, of Hartford, Ky.#
writes as follows concerning the diffi
culties which afflicted her:
I was seriously ill and was confined
to my bed for six or eight months in all,
during two years. I had chills, fever,
rheumatism. My stomaoh seemed al
ways too full, my kidneys did not act
freely, my liver was inaotive, my heart
beat was very weak and I had dizziness
or swimming in my head and nervous
"I was under the treatment of several
different physicians but they all failed
to do me any good.r After suffering for
two years I learned from an Arkansas
Pink Pills and I decided that I would
try them. The Tery first box I took
made me feel better and when I had
taken four boxesmoreI wasentirely well,
weighed fifteen pounds more than when
began, resumed my household duties,
and have since continued in the best of
health. I have recommended Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills to many people on ac
count of what they did for me, and I feel
that I cannot praise them too strongly.
Dr, Williams' Pink Pills restored Mrs.
Wedding to health because they actually
make new blood and wlien the blood is
in full vigor every funotion of the body
is restored, because the blood carries to
every organ, every muscle, every nerve,
the nourishment necessary to enable it
to do its part. Because Dr. Williams*
Pink Pills make the blood rich and red
they restore lost weight, strengthen and
revitalize the nerves, bring color to the
cheeks, banish rheumatio pains and
bring good health and spirits to tbe de
reaaed. Any woman who is interested
