Revenue Commissioners File
Preliminary Report of Their
Board Says Burden Is Un
equally Distributed'; Sug
gests Full-Value Basis.
The board of commissioners on reve
nue unci taxation, provided for by the
legislature of 1911, and uppolnted by
Governor William Spry, )ms completed a
prelim Jnury report of its investigations
IjH and will within a feu days hold n muot-
H Ins with the governor to determine upon
S the basis for the :lnal report.'
Governor Spry waa not In the city
H yesterday. His secretary, John K.
1 lardy, said that he understood that the
governor was not entirely In sympathy
I with all the proposals of the commls-
I The hoard, which consist.: of C. S.
Peterson, Harden Bcnnion and Francis
M W. Klrkham, reconimonds the abolition
H of the poll tax, the making of assess-
H mentis on the full valuation and the
H lowering of the tax rate, the readjust- j
H inent of the inheritance tax and the use
of the true consideration In deeds of
M property.
I To Abolish Poll Tax.
In reference to the recommendations,
B for a change in the poll lax law the rn-
D port gays:
I There Is no tax that boars as un-
I equally upon the people as tlie poll
fl tax. In fact. It may almost be said
that It bears on no two persons alike.
K Tn the perfect system each citizen
ffi contributes to (he support of the gov-
I eminent in proportion to his ability
B to pay. Tlie poll tax levies a rixed
I sum on each male citizen without
B considering whether he Is a mllllon-
I aire or a day laborer. It Is. hard to
P collect, and experience has shown
I that those best able to pay the tax
liavo evaded or refused to pjy it.
while thoso least able to pay have
not escaped. We recommend the
abolition of this tax.
Full Value Assessments.
Concerning assessments at full value
the report roads:
First, that It leads to n more equal
and equitable assessment. It Is com
paratively easy to iLscerlaaln the ac
tual cash value of a given property,
hut when assessors arc allowed to as
sess property at such varying per
lentageH of actual value us their
j idgmeiit or Interest prescribes, the
wonder is, not that taxes bear un
equally upon our citizens, hut that
they are not still more unequal.
Second, a high valuation means a
low levy to produce the same amount
of taxes. A low rate of taxation Is
desirable from any point of view.
Inheritance Tax Plan.
The recommendations for a chance In
the. inheritance tax laws are recited as
We believe that In estates of mod
erate amount where the property goes
to immediate relative.8, the rate Is
too high. Our present law is unclassi
fied and nonprogressive, but provides
for a straight 5 per cent tax on all
amounts over 310,000. whether the
benellclary is the widow of the de
feased or a. nonresident alien of no
Mood relation. In out- Judgment there
is no question hut that the tax should
be classified, according to the degrees
of relationship of the heir of the de
ceased, and progressive according to
the amount received by him from the
""The members or the board are
unanimously of the opinion that an
income tax. efficiently and thorough
lv administered. Is the best and most
equitable system of taxation that can
bo dovised, but t-uggests that Intro
duction here be deferred until ex
periments by other states have progressed.

Mother Dead, Crippled
Boy Does Not Despair
Deprived of Both Legs, Frank1
Hendrickson Possesses
Dauntless Spirit. !
"Out 6f the. night that covers me.
Black as the pit from pule to pole. J
I thank whatever pods may be
For my unconquerable sou'.". j
Frank C. Hendrickson didn't say that,
but he might have said It. for In him js
the stuff and the 111 fortune that Inspired
the first utterance of the wohIa.
Hendrickson is 13 years old. He Is
legless and helpless. Until Tuesday he
had a mother und, according to him, the
finest mother any body ever had.
Death Takes Mother.
Hendrickson and his mother lived alone
in two cramped, albeit clean and com-
fortahle, little rooms In the upper floor
of n house at f0 Xorih First West street.
They had no money, only that which
dribbled In from the daily toil of the lit
tle woman and dribbled out ngain for
dally bread and roof.
Friday Mrs. Hendrickson went down
town to consult a doctor about herself,
leaving the boy alone a? she always had
to. It mined that day and the streets
were slippery. She fel1 en Main street
near Scrace's bakery shop and so hurt
hci-self that a hemorrhage resulted. They
carried her into the bakery shop and a
doctor was called. She was found to
be in a critical condition and so weak
that she could only murmur something
about her son, but nobody en tight Just
what she said.
Tuesday Mrs. Hendrickson died at St.
I Murk's lihsnltal Alt I'rlrinv afternoon the
boy sat helpless In his chair and waited
for het to come home and prepare the
supper. .Night came, on and he began
to worry. I-l called, hoping to attract
someone's attention and send him looking
for his mother. No one heard because
the boy is weak of voice and the little
home fs far removed from the. street and
the walls of the old house are exceed
ingly thick.
All through the night the bo sat help
less, his mind filled with black dread.
All Saturday ho sat. Finally hunger
drove him to edge his chair about the
room until he was able to reach the
bread box and obtain a crust. Late In
the afternoon a neighbor called as was
her wont. The boy appealed to her to
find his mother. That night he learned
his mother was mortally HI.
Learns of Mother's Death.
"I could not. go to her. for I have
no legs and no money to employ the legs
of others." ja!d the boy as he told lUs
story yesterdaj. "But tho hospital peo
ple promised to telephone to n neighbor
who had a telephone the moment my
mother became any worse so that 1 could
go to her even If I hail to crawl. Tues
day the message name that mother hail
died in the night.
"My mother was far more- than legs
to me." he said yesterday. "She was
everything a boy could want. She lived
only for me, It seemed. Every cent she
could save from bare expenses she spent
for books for me and I have been study
ing them."
The boy pointed lo a library that would
have done credit to a home far more
"It was her hope that maybe I could
equip myself ,by reading so as to make
n living in some way after she became
too old to support us botb," he said.
"Mother was 5" years old."
Neighbor Pays Tribute.
Mrs. Carrie Hendrickson .-was buried
yesterday. Services were held at' the
QiiHltroiigh-Alcotl undertaking rooms.
Through tho kindness of neighbors the
boy was able to attend, being lifted down
the stairs Into a carriage.
"Mrs. Hendrickson was one of the most
lovable women T ever knew,' said a
neighbor yesterday. "Her devotion to
her crlppleri lvy was beautiful."
Frank C. Hendrickson lost both legs
In an elevator accident Ihrec years ago.
Both limbs had to be amputated so close
to his thighs that the merest slumps re
main. "Before the accident he helped
support his mother.
After the funeral they broucht the boy
back to th empty home and there ho sits
looking Into the motherless future.
And like the. poet Henley, who sang
the defiant song of his unconquerable
soul. "Under the bludgeoning?; of fate mv
head is bloody hut unbowed," the boy is
not. cheerless.
"Maybe it will not turn out so bad as
it looks .lust now," he said, "and any
way I still have my hands."

increasing work or that department. City
Attorney Harper J. Dlnlnny and Aaron
Myers, assistant city attorney, are now,

weeks had under consideration the ap
pointment of a land and water attorney,
the letalls of whose prospective duties
were exclusively published In The Trib
une early in September.
. At Ilia meeting today the completion
of Ibis plan, or tho appointment of one
or possibly two assistant attorneys, will
bo discussed. It Is said, however, that
the plan for the land and water attorney
Is favored by the majority of the com
missioners. Mr. Daly has "been an active
applicant for the place but II is under

Music Pleases Larg-e Audi
ences at Tabernacle in Af
ternoon and Evening.
Presenting two excellent pro
grammes, the United States Marine
band was heard in the tabernacle yes
terday afternoon and evening. The
musicians, with both ability and good
nature, readily responded to numerous
encores. The band 13 well balanced
and ably conducted. Tho leader, Lieu
touaut AVilliain II, Santelinaiin, in the
eoloction of numbers, kept the happy
medium between tlie music that -appeala
mostly to the hearer who is a critical
student and the music that has no
claim to merit save its popularity.
There was enough of the classical to
furnish food for thought,' enough of tho
popular to prevent oither programme
from being monotonous.
Lieutenant Santolmann has bcou a
member of the government, band for
more than vtwo decades. Ho occupied
a minor position in the organization
twenty years ago. whon .lohn P. Sousn
was leader, and directed the players in
a concert given in the Salt Lako thea
ter. Santelmaun 's work as conductor be
speaks the truo musician. He shows
comprehension aud is enorgotic. ar
tistic, earnest. eonsciriitious; and "with
al entirely -without affectation.
The gem of the afternoon pro
gramme, -which wag heard by 2000 per
sons, was undoubtedly the "Wagner
number from "Tho Valkyrie. " There
waa breadth and power and passion
whero required, and it seemed some
what incongruous to hear "Marchhig
Through Georgia , for an encore.
Miss Mary Sherier, soprano, the
soloist who was heard at both the af
ternoon and evoning concerts, possesses
a beautiful, clear, ' well-trained voico.
She sin'gs with keen appreciation of
tochnique. In the afternoon hor rendi
tion of the Bemberg '"'Kiss Song" was
a gem, and in tho evening she was ac
corded an onthusiastic encore for
dramatic and 'artistic interpretation of
the " Carmen' ' aria.
George Otto Fray is a gonuiue artist
.with tho euphonium. His playing of
tho selection from ." Josephine ' ' won
the plaudits of the critical.
Jacques L. Yanpoucke is a clarinetist
of marked ability. lTis solo, "Die
Puratini1-' (Lugi Bassi), was one of
the most enjoyable features of the
evening programme.
Tlie evl nl te frmn "LtiiMn. 1 rrivcn
by the band, tabernacle choir, fifty
soloists and tho great organ, was the
"hit" of tho evening, and the repeti
tion of the number was euthusiasticallj'
demanded and graciously accorded.
Potor Lowin lived up to his reputa
tion as a master of tho xylophone. H!a
mastory of tho difficult instrument in
marvelous and his playing of the fan
tasia (Dittrich-Lowin) was aecorded
an ovation.
A largo representation from Fort
Douglas, including both officers and
enlisted men, attended tho evening concert.
