Sentiment in This County is Very
Decided Against it.
Mortgagee and Mortgager Both Oppose to
Proposed Law
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
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.”

The Risen art exhibit, now in progress
at the Luling school building, is con
sidered to be very fine. Prof. Keller,
who has been instrumental in securing
the pictures here has made inquiry as
to the success of the exhibit in other

regarding Elsen art exhibit received.
It has been exceedingly successful and
popular here. Several hundred people
visiting it each day during the week.
We have raised several hundred dollars
for art purposes by the sale of tickets.
Hoping your success in giving the ex
hibit will be as great as ours.” Prof.
Brown of Green Bay writes: “We have

The more Harts' Honey and Hore
honud is used the better it is liked. We

first take cold. It is good when yonr
cough is deep seated or your lungs sore
or painful. It is good for any kind of
a cough Oron Hammond, a railroad
man at Leßoy. HI., says, “that his suc

well known medicines without benefit.”

Job Work at The Pilot. I
President Henry C. H-ggins of the
Manitowoc and Northern Traction Cos.,
made the important announcement a
few days ago that his company would
at once begin operations for the exten
sion of the trolley line from its psesent
terminus to Door county, as far as
Sturgeon Day. This extension will do
much to bring trade into this county
because the proposed route is through
a populous district and it will naturally
bring people into this county and city.
The line should be in operation within
a year or two.

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. All of the cases date pre
vious to that of the Dace case. The
total claims aggregated $415.22 and an
award of $100.78 is made to the plaiu

of the classic composition with such
ease and feeling that he almost trans
mutes the violin into a living, pulsating
being. so deeply tender can he bring
out the tones.
His concert here will l*> such a treat
that no music lover can afford to miss

Committee Having Plans Proposed
for Spring Session
Great County Pride is Manifest in the
Chairman Otto Schmidt will Report the Plans
and Specifications at the Board
□ Plans and specifications for the pro
posed new court house are being pre
pared by a number of architects here and
abroad. The committee chosen by the
County board, of which Otto Schmidt
is chairman, will be in a pjsition to
make a report to the board at its spring
The committee has been hard at work
communicating with competing archi
tects urging them tohuve their drawings
ready not later than h pril 20tb, so that
when the new board meets it will be
prepared to make such recomendations
which will result in the board em
powering the present! committee or any
new committee which may be named,
to let contracts end arrange for the sale
of bonds up to the sum of SIOO,OOO.
The county members of the board
and their constituents are taking un
usual pride in the proposed building.
The fact is that this project gives them
the deepest interest inasmuch as it will
be a county building to be used exclu
sively for county purposes. There is
unanimity all along the line; county
memliers and farmers and storekeepers
in the outside towns are enthusiastic
whenever the subject of building the
court house is broached, Not the
slightest doubt exists but that the
court house will be ordered built at the
forthcoming spring session of the
County board.

Manitowoc county will be interested
in a bill banded into the lower house of
the legislature by David Evans, Jr., of
Waushara concerning grade crossings.
If this bill passes, the town of Branch
can remedy a very serious grievance.
The crossing measure provides that any
resident of a town, city or village, own
ing at least *l,OOO worth of real prop
erty, may go before the town clerk and
make complaint that a certain railroad
crossing is dangerous. Thereupon, the
clerk must select a jury of six men to
view the crossing and determine
whether or not it is dangerous. If the
jury decides it dangerous, the clerk
must notify the railroad company
through the nearest station agent, in
forming it of the proceedings and order
ing it to build a bridge over or under
the tracks. If the company fails to
comply within fifteen days the town
board may have the work done at its

Kodol does for the stomach that
which it is unable to do for itself, even
when but slightly disordered or over
loaded. Kodol supplies the natural
juices of digestion and does the work
of the stomach, relaxing the nervous

that organ are allowed to rest and heal.
Kodol divests what you eat and enables
the stomach and digestive organs to
transform all food into rich, red blood.
