VOLUME XLIV.-NO. J 4.
WILL FIGHT THE DOUBLE TAXATION Sentiment in This County is Very Decided Against it. WHAT JULIUS LINSTEDT HAS TO SAY Mortgagee and Mortgager Both Oppose to Proposed Law THINK IT ABSOLUTELY UNCONSTITUTIONAL If it Went Into Effect and Was Sustained by the Courts Would Drive Money From the State. There is a very definite opposition among property owners and mortgagees and mortgagers against the proposed law to tax mortgages. The assumption is that the proposed law is unconstitu tional inasmuch as it causes double tax ation. The law, it is said, to be consti tutional permits only the collection of taxes once on each species of property, thus if a parcel of property is assessed at its actual value, though it may be en cumbered by a mortgage, it would be unconstitutional to tax the mortgage because that would result in double taxation. One of the best authorities on taxation and real estate in the county, Julius Linstedt, avers after a thorough ex amination into the subject that the pro posed law will be opposed to the limit by both mortgagee and mortgager. “I am absolutely satisfied,” he remarks, that neither of the parties referred to will submit to the injustice, the mort gagor and mortgagee are equally antag onistic to the measure and will fight it. “The sentiment in the county is shared in, too, by many other counties, and if such a law were in force, it would simply drive money from the state into otUer states where it could find reason able and profitable investment.” Talking machines at all prices at J.

Hoping your success in giving the ex hibit will be as great as ours.” Prof. Brown of Green Bay writes: “We have in past years had two other exhibits, but I think this superior to either of them.” An opportunity will be given each day for outsiders for pictures which range in price from |1 to #IOO.

COUNTY IS HELD LIABLE FOR THE SMALLPOX PATIENTS Manitowoc county is held liable by the decision of the court referee for the care and support of transient saiallpox patients who were taken in charge by the city of Manitowoc and provided for. Of a total of claims of $523.30 presented against the county for the care of Thompson Dace, a transient taken ill here June 23 and cared for at the isolation hospital by the city until July 30, the decision allows, $312.00, including rental at SO.OO per day for the use of the isolation hospital. Four other cates in which the City appealed from the refusal of the Coun ty board to allow claims are also de cided, but in these the victory is not so sweeping.
