I "WEDNESDAY., MAJRCH 10, 1909- MR. CORBIN RETEVS y. SEW TAX PLANS. In tan address delivered before the I Farmers' Association of the General .Assembly to-day (Wednesday) Tax Commissioner Corbin declared that his 1 conception of his duties was to pre sent - "different practical theories rela !tiveto taxation," mention possible in- f qualities, sug-g-est changes in the stat- Nitea and qimnlv information, and that (with this his responsibility ceases. He referred to the need of increased reve (nue by the State, and cited these prop ositions as having been suggested: In creased inheritance tax, taxation, of 'certain corporations upon the market value of their shares, and a State tax. Of the Inheritance tax, Mr. Corbin says "the income therefrom should be s.s large as can be reasonably collected fwitfcout an actual hardship or injustice to anyone," and his belief is that "this lean be accomplished by a law graded fas to beneficiaries, and progressive as to tax rates," in substance as follows: T A; ilberal exemption to lineal bene- ft Notaries, and a low initial tax rate. I progressing with the amount of the esttfte: a reasonably small exemption of property passing to distant relatives and strangers of the blood, and a tax I rate beginning at five pier cent, and in creasing with the amount of the estate to a reasonable limitation. Upon the matter of corporate taxa tion. Mr. Corbin quoted from an opin ion by Justice Brewer of the U. S. Su preme Court: Now It is a cardinal rule that should J never be forgotten that whatever prop- pose of taxation. The substance of right demands that whatever be the real vahie of any property, that value may be accepted by the state for the purpose of taxation, and this ought not to be evaded by any mere confusion of words. . . . The value which prop erty bears in the market, the amount for which its stock can be bought and sold, is the real value. Upon the question of reimposition of the State tax, Mr. Corbin gave the ar guments pro and con but did" not ex press any direct personal opinion. He did; however, refer to the matter of unequal representation by saying that "there can be no proper division of the responsibility of expenditures when one-half the tax would be paid by sev en towns, or 45 per cent, of the people with a representation that is one-tenth of the total representation of the state in the General Assembly." ; POLICIES WHICH ARE COMMENDABLE. BI T . I Though the Farmer has found rea ' son to criticize the water company, particularly in connection with "the twenty-year contract, it has ever com mended the policy of the corporation jwbOTA such approval seemed warranted. rWe bave highly commended Us policy f water-supply increase, vwmcrii car ried the city through last year's (drouth without pleas for' economy in 'iii3e. while many "other cities were en forcing such economy and some were I resorting, in default of good water, to j contaminated sources. We have also from contamination. And now we are literally compelled I to commend the company's new policy ' of reforestation of the 4,000 acres of I watershed under its control. Of course, ; the company's object is the promotion ! of self-interest, though the dividend i crop of white pine timber cannot ma jture fn less than 30 years. But other purposes 1 are served. Approximate I purity of the water supply is better I promoter: by forests than by vacant I land upon th watersheds, and it is the i opinion of scientists that forestation I practically increases water supplies by i materially retarding water which J would otherwise escape over spillways. 1 Another beneficial result will be the , object-lesson afforded to owners of bare and idle lands. This reforesta- tion will teach scientific and practical I methods of profitably utilizing such lands. In fact, it will go further, for the company plans to establish a white pine nursery, from which it will sup- ply "plantings" and, as private refor ' estation would also promote the com pany's interest by augmenting the wa ter supply, the prices will not probably ibe exorbitant. Notwithstanding these commendable corporate policies, the Farmer still ad heres to its belief that the 20 year con tract should be abrogated, and that the city should own the water works. Up on these points, the policies above commended have scant if any bearing. Increased pay and provision for re tired pay are said to account for the ' fact that the army is. in its three di ' visions, new up to its legal limitation ;' of 77.753 men. This is not enough, f however, to meet the condition said by President Taft to be desirable, viz., i ability to resist any possible invasion j and to furnish expeditionary forces if i desired. It is, therefore, presumable that the Slat Congress will be asked to ificnv advance the limit, and the President stated in his inaugural address that the army does not constitute a danger to the cause of free institutions. All observers do not agree with him, and there will be opposition to any mater ial increase in the army's strength, as likely to stimulate the progressive cen tralization of power at Washington which was the vogue under the Roose T3l; Administration and against which Ex-Vice President Fairbanks has late ly protested as follows: We are moving forward toward cen tralized power never dreamed of by our fathers. They regarded highly centralized power as monarchical, and widely distributed power among the people as essential to Republican gov ernment. We find the tendency is for the national Government to attract it self continually increasing power. The underlying maxims of Republican gov ernment the political verities which are the basis of our institutions must guide our feet as they guided the feet of our fathers if we are to avoid the disasters which other peoples have met. The delay in the giving of hearings upon the bill creating a Public Utilities commission may be in part intended to first allow tho passage of all corpo rate measures which might be ham pered by the existence of the commis sion, but there is little if any doubf that the finai purpose is the rejection of the bill. During the campaign, the Farmer predicted that the Senate would, if Republican in its majority, be found to be packed against a pub lic utilities commission. This predic tion is con Armed by the Hartford cor respondent of the Waterbury Ameri can who says that the Senate stands 23 to 15 Uoiinst the proposed commis sion. Much pressure will be needed -to change thi? condition, and it is doubtful if even the greatest possible pressure will suffice to effect a change.

FAIRFIELD More Boxing Proposed The Postmaster A Lecture on Trees The Famous Burr Residence Waldstioe. It would seem that this town has not been so thoroughly "aroused" over boxing matches as the public has been led to believe.' Most of the "arousing" was of the hot air kind. The rumor is that another "smoker" with gloves and knockouts will be given at Perry's hall' on the evening of the 16th. be tween kids from New Haven. Bridge port, and South Brooklyn. The last "smoker" paid too well for those in terested for the series to be discon tinued so long as the police do not in terfere and like the snakes in Ireland, there are no police in Fairfield. Since it is believed that Postmaster Pickett's term of office will not expire for two years yet, those who hope to be appointed postmaster under the new administration will have to wait for a little while, to say the least. The gossip of the town is that one of our selectmen would like to be postmaster. It is a good plum for anybody, espec ially so long as there is an assistant as efficient as Mr. Smith. The new ratocery store in what used to be called the "financial district" of the town, is reported to be doing a fair business. Mr. McCaffrey, who has been on the sick list, is able to resume his work for Mi . Morehouse. Mr. Shannon's little child continues to be very ill. It is stated that Miss Bessie Child went to Atlantic City with her father. Miss Grace Child is the young lady who is to be married in April, and not Miss Theodora as has been mistakenly announced. This latter young lady is in New York, and in the spring will take her diploma as a trained nurse. The subject of Rev. Mr. Olmstead's sermon last Sunday was "Bible Prom ises." ... One of the speakers at the coming Farmers' Institute at the Greenfield Hill Club will be Mr. George H. Mer win. Mr. and Mrs. H. P. Gowans are in New Tork for a few weeks. Mrs. Celia Northrop has returned to her home in Nyack. N. Y.. after a visit in town. Thursday evening there will be a meeting of the Count v Club, in charge of Mr. and Mrs. W. Burr Hill. At this meeting final arrangements will be made for the Farmers' Institute. The slot sum machine in the depot at Southport. has been rifled of its valuable contents. Some of the gum wac scattered on the floor. The King's Daughters of the Metho dist church will give a supper next Friday evening. It was too bad that the night was so dark and stormy last evening, otherwise there might have been a larger audience of fruit growers at the Pequot library, to listen to Mr. Whitaker's lecture on the "Care of Trees. " Mr. Whitaker is spoken of as a scientific forester from Boston and New York. It is said ehat he has had much practical experience on some of the finest estates in the country, and has gathered much data about the growth of trees from the seed to the mature plant. He tells how roots feed the trees, and th? need there is for a nourishing soil if a tree is to flourish. There are men who think the disease known as oeach yellows is the result of an impoverished soil. Trees, like animals, must bave the right kind of food if they are to flourish. Judging from the looks of the old apple orch ards in town there is much need of correct information regarding the rais ing of good fruit. And when one re collects how poor the apple crop was last year and what high prices they new fetch in the market, it would seem that many new orchards might be set out. Mr. Whitaker points out the diseases of trees and the insects which prey upon them, and indicates the remedies. He also has to say about forestry, and gives an outline of the work in which the government is engaged. According to Dr. Child one of the most notable houses in town, is "Gar den Court," the residence on Main street of A. Holland Forbes. This stately mansion stands on the site of the former hospitable home of the High Sheriff, and takes one back into pre-revolutionary days. Immediately after the war Mr. Burr rebuilt his house and his friend John Hancock as sisted him. It was in the old house that Mrs. Thomas Hancock and Doro thy Quincy tarried a good part of the yjar when Boston was besieged and affairs in that neighborhood were in an unsettled state. Here Mrs. Han cook died only three days after Wash ington's third visit to this town. Her body lies in the ancient Burying Ground. It was the old Burr house that Dorothy Quincy often met Col. Aaron Burr, greatly to the annoyance of her fiance, and the watchful aunt into whose charge she had been given. It was also in the old mansion that the President of the Continental Con gress and Dorothy Quincy were united in wedlock a gay occasion for Fair field when the terrors of war were for gotten for an hour and the town gave itself up to festivity. A letter writ ten by Thaddeus Burr to a Philadel phia friend, now owned by the New .York Public Library, refers to the presence of Gen. Lafayette in Fair field. It is dated the last Sunday in August. 1778, and says that "the Mar quis Dp La Fayette, a id-de-camp, ar- i , , i -. . nvcu jll iiiy nouse on nuiiuay evening j on tne way to (jeneral wasnmgton. The following is the account Dr. Child gives of the country place known as "Waldstein." the residence during tne summer ot Mrs. Mabel Osgood Wright: "On a rise of ground north of the railroad station the observer notes the shaded seclusion of Waldstein. Fifty years ago Dr. Osgood purchased the rugged, cedar-covered tract, which to-day is a quiet. lovely, rural re treat, suggestive of a close friendship with nature and the spirit of poesy. Winding walks, shady nooks. rocks which bear the name of patriots, au thors and artists, summer houses, a lily pool, and an old fashioned flower garden with its sundials, enhance the charm of the place. As people pass along the street they notice a deep cut inscription on the bold rock which jute upon the sidewalk: 'God and Our Country. 1862.' This date was put there to commemorate patriotic and religious services held during the shock and heat of the Civil War that fateful summer when tho rustic house, which tops the rock, was used as a pulpit, while the streets below and the field across the way became an audience room where the hundreds gathered and gave rapt heed to the eloquent message which fell from the lips of the preacher." NEWTOWN. Mrs. Kate Ward of Walnut Tree Hill has returned from a visit with friends in Waterbury and Watertov.n. Mrs. Wm. Ryan and two children of Botsford left Monday for Derby where they will spend a week with Mrs. Ryan's mother prior to their departure fcr their new home in New York city.

C who is the author of sev eral books, writes: "For several years I waa afflicted with kidney trouble and last winter I was suddenly strick en with a severe pain in my kidney; and was confined to bed eight days un able to get up without assistance. My urine contained a thick white sediment and I passed same frequently day and night. I commenced taking Foley's Kidney Remedy, and the pain gradual ly abated and finally ceased and my urine became normal. I cheerfully re commend Foley's Kidney Remedy." F. B. Brill, local agent. 1 3 5 UNDER ARREST IN BUENOS AY RES. (Special from United Press.) Boston. March 9. United States At torney General George C. Wickersham to-dav notified the Boston police that Joseph N. Castfene, who is wanted for alleged larceny of $11,500 from aliens of Boston, is under arrest at Buenos Ayres, Argentina and awaiting extra dition. Castene, who was an Attorney here, is said to have made away with a to tal of $50,000 in small sums belonging to poor Italians of this city. He left Boston on Sept. 1, 1907 and has been sought ever since by the Federal at torneys. BODY STILL UNIDENTIFIED. (Special from United Press.) To-jfington. March 9. An examina tion was held to-day by Medical Ex aminer Hanchett in an effort to identi fy the body of the unknown man who was found last night in the woods near this place. A thorough search of his clothing disclosed a slip of paper on which the following words were writ ten: "H. C. Hawthorne. 59 Capitol avenue. Upstairs." The Medical Examiner stated that death was probably due to exposure. A search is being made for She man's coat and vest with the hope of producing some additional clue as to the cause of his death or his iden tity. Flatulency or Wind On Stomach As It Is Commonly Named, Means That Decaying Food Is Making Gas. This most serious condition is very prevalent and results most distress ingly and fatally oftentimes. The stomach in cases of flatulency is un able to digest the food properly. De cay sets in, gasses form, extend the stomach, force their way downward into the bowels, and if not relieved it extends upward pressing against the lungs, liver and heart, causing short ness of breath, belching, foul odors and many times sudden death. Foods which are filled with gases, when taken into a deranged stomach cause flatulency rapidly, vegetables be ing especially given to this quality. Against such a condition the stomach can do but little, because these foul and poisonous gases affect its glands, muscles and tissues to such a degree as to incapacitate it almost it once. These gases distend the stomach in all directions, preventing the contract ing muscles from doing their regular duties, or if they do force the gas from the stomach it goes elsewhere in the system with even more harass ing results, and then the decaying mass still remains to generate more gases. The most effective method for al laying flatulency is to remove the cause of gas making. An emetic will do this but the stomach will have thr same trouble the moment new food enters it. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets get at gas food at once, digest it, prevent decay, quickly reduce food to nour ishment, make good rich gastric fluid and pass the digested food to the in testines, giving the stomach its rest and the system its nourishment. Flat ulency simply cannot exist where these little tablets arwe used. They build up the stomach fluids so that it matters not how many vegetables you eat or food containing quantities of gas. the stomach does its work well and quickly. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are sold everywhere and used the whole world over by sick stomachs and stomachs that want to eat heartily and yet ,not get sick. Every druggist carries Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets, price 50 cents per box. The demand for these little digesters is constantly increasing.
