Places Attempting to Qualify, In a speech up in Wisconsin, Secretary Taft, the "Heir-Apparent," says he was forced to be come a presidential candidate by the newspapers, The people have been lead to take a different view. They are under the impression that Taft was forced into the presidential race by imperial edict, the elimination of Foraker being the primary object, and that us a r&waid, in case he fails to land the job as- chief executive, he will be appointed chief justice. The newspapers, in thejr opinion, had nothing whatever to do with it. Is the big secretary attempting to qual fy for membership in the famous Annanias Club?

Say Taft Will Not Now. Washington, June 18 Reports were current here today that Sec retary Taft has retired from the presidential race. Poor health, following deter mined efforts at reducing weight, and Taft'e general disinclination to become & party to the rough-and-tumble etrenuousness of a big fifdit are two of the reasons as signed for the secretary's discour agement with the canvass. In the beginning Secretury Taft said that he would accept the nomination if it came to him with out a fight, but was not seeking the place. Now that there is a fight in prospect, theeeeretary has decided to retire. Through the efforts of a ft lend of the family, Mies Ethel Roller, the 19-year-old girl who mysteri ously left her home last Thanks giving, has been returned to Jier mother. - She was found in Chicago and rescued from u terrible fate by a friend. t The young lady says that, she was walking along one of the streets in Chicago v hen 6he met a young man she had met before, and before she knew it she had been drugged. The next time she realized anything she was in a strange place. Her mother here received word that the young lady was dead and as she had not heard from her for several months it was sup posed that the daughter had met some terrile fate. Quite Successful Stunt. In the Air Big Liner vas Pictured. New York, June 16 The American Liner Philadelphia, in yesterday from Southampton and Cherbourg, found almoet dead ahead of her on Friday morning tl e dim smoke trail of n liner;. Captain Mills suspected that the invisible ship waethe swift French liner La Torrane, and n few min utes later his conjecture was veri fied by u conspiracy of the spirits of the air. The sea was of the millpond variety, and the sky was gray and sunless. At8:H0, as lecorded in the log, the French liner appeared upside down in lite air many miles ahead. Wireless messages flashed between the ships and showed that they weie more than 25 miles apart, or hull down to each other. Captain Mills had seen mirages before, but none of the passengers tver had observed one of such dis tinctness, No sea simulacrum ever looked eo real as the topsy turvy French thip. Voyagers on the Philadelphia neglected theii breakfasts to gaze at the vision, whiol. lufted about an hour and a half. The French (ship's pa sen gere, like flies vfalking on a ceil ing, weie seen no distinctly as if the real ship were only a-few miles away. The officer on La Tor rone's bridge was particularly conspicuous, and one of the Phila delphia's observers said he could almost make -out the brand of cigarette the'pfficer was smoking. A transition in 'cloud effects de stroyed the illusion, and all hands went back to breakfast. Crcmwell Dixon, aged 14 years, made an hour's flight in an air ship of his own devising in the presence of more that 500 people at the Columbus Driving Park last week, his elevations ranging from 50 to 200 feet. The ship was un der perfect control, and the tight seemingly spelled success for a new type of aeriul navigation. Among the spectators was his ad miring and axioua mother, Mrs. Cromwell Dixon.

At the annual banquet of the Can ton Board ot Trade held April 10, 1907, Hon. Atlee Pomerene, a member of the Tax Commission of Ohio, delivered a comprehensive address on the subject of "Taxation In Ohio." Mr. Pomerene discussed the limita tions of tli constitution as tbey nf fect taxation. "When the constitution of 1861 was adopted, It provided like that ot 1802 that no poll tax for comity or state purposes should be levied. There can, therefore, be no taxes now upon persons, and I do not believe there should be. lint Section 2, Article 12, of the constitution oC 1851 provided 'laws ajiall be pilsaed, taxing by uniform rule, all moneys, credits, Investments In bonds, stocks, joint stock companies, or oth erwise; and also leal and personal property according to lt3 value In money.' This was amended Nov. 7, 1905, so as to except from taxation, bonds state, municipal, county, town ship and school. The legislature, therefore, Is limited more than It was by the constitution of 1S02. "It Is Tvell In theory to say that all classes of property of whatsoever kind, shall be taxed according to Its true value in money, but the expetl ence of fifty-six years since the adop tion of the constitution of 1851, warns us that In practice this rule is In equitable and unjust. "When Article 12, Section 2, was adopted, a regulation was prescribed not only for our fathers, but for suc ceeding generations. I do not think they wrought well for themselves, anil they certainly have not for us. In this day of corporations, private and quasi public, when gieat franchises are be ing given away for the asking, It Is well for us to pause and take a thought for the morrow, as well is for the present. We are better able to determine, and the general assembly is "better able to determine, what Is necessary and suitable to our pres ent condition than were our fathers of two generations ago. "We must remember that in the administration of our tax laws real estate does, not and cannot escape the attention of tin officer. Some tangible personal property does and 'can es cape and most of It does escape. Mr Pomerene showed how monies and ci edits escaped taxation. After summing up the inconsistencies of the consitutional testrictions, he said: "What should be done? I apeak for no one save myself. First, In my judgment the constitution should be so amended as to untie the hands of the legislature entirely, or to so amend Section 2 of Article 12 that it will permit of a classification, of the sub jects of taxation.. It isrurged that if this section cf the constitution be wiped out entirely, and the legisla ture left free to do wha&to it seems meet, there would" be no end of lobby ing and corruption. "But it Is not necessary to go to that extent, if the people will but per mit a classification of property so that real estate may be put upon one foot ing; tangible personal property upon another, and, intangible upon still an other, then laws may be passed which would be pertinent and applicable to each subject Would it not be fairer then to adopt some statute taxing personal property, and par ticularly intangible personal prop erty, at a lepser rate? Would it not be mote likely to be returned for taxa tion? And certainly we don't want to be put in an attitude where we are forcing mon'jy and the holders ot se curities to move without the state. When the rule is once adopted, It will apply with equal and exact justice to all, because each will have the same opportunities"' to acquire personal property, tangible or intangible, that he now has to acquh e real estate. It is nut true that a rule of this kind would work an injustice upon the own ers of real estate. It Is said that the farming communities pay proportion' ately more taxes than the residents of cities. Thls.'I believe, is true, but it is no more true of real estate than It is of personality, , "Second. Franchises should be tax ed. 1 do npt mean by this that ex cessive burdens shall be placed upon corporations of any kind. I believe they have escaped their fair portion of this burden in the past, but that oUght not to be a reason why they should be : unlshed now or In the fu ture, because the holders of these franchises of yesterday are not the holders thereof today or tomorrow. "Third. All state taxes should be abolished. All burdens of this char acter should be as nearly local as possible. Fourth, Some system should be de vised, such as a state board of taxa tion, permanent In Its nature, com posed of men who know their busi ness. There should also be county boards made responsible to the state boards, and thsre should be appointed township or ward assessors who ate fitted by experience to do that which the lav requires of them. "Fifth. Let the' state aud county and township, and municipal and school officials give one-half as much attention to the curtailment of public expenses as they do to .finding new sources of revenues for expenditure, and we will thn be U3 near a Utopian form of gcvertmeiit as wo can hope to be beforo we reach the millennium." IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. New Hampshire will probably be added tp the list of states having a commission appointed for the investi gation of the subject of taxation. Tai-ai'lon ,a3 largely dwelt upon in the campaign there last fall, and one of the planks In the Republican, plat form related to flie question Gover nor Floyd -commended a tax com mission, and th:? is embodied In a bill which has been reported to the bouse of repre3tucaUv?s Jfcabua.

SEIDENFELD, - MURRAU CITY, 0. MORE TAX IDEAS State Senator Howe Talks On Three General Features. Home Rule, Quadrennial Property Vsluatlons and Franchise Taxes Are Subjects He Discusses. fAn address before the Ohio Tax Commission by Senator Fredetick C Howe. Hearing March 12, 1907.) I have not attempted in this argu ment to take up the subject in all of its bearings, t have been content with throe general features: The taxation of those corporations lhat enjoy franchises, the question of the decennial 'valuation of property, ad voop.ting ti re-valuation of real prop erty in tlu.- utate every four years, and local option, or local home rule In taxation. The taxation of corporations, of competitive character, seems to me to be very adequately cared for In the Willis bill; but the other clas3, the franchise corpoiatlons, steam rail roads,, telegtaphs, telephones, express companies, street ..railways, gas, elec trie 'iighlinif. v.-ate'r companies, all of which - ars privileged enterprises whose valiu: exists 'because of a grant from the City, or some privileges 7,-hich they enjoy from the state. Cor poiatlons of this sort are both in adequately taxed as compared with the same ciE-ss of property iu ether states. The pres'.-nt method of valuation "of railroads was adopted many years ago, possibly at the time the constitu tion was adopted, when there was no very great illffeience in property. It was all visible and accessible. Wu got our taxing" ' system under those circumstauces and vre have not sub stantially altered it frotu that day to this. In the meantime Immense cor porations have come Into existence, and are still laxed on what Is really a scrap ba,-,is, they are assessed piece meal. The assessment of a railroad Is made by the county auditors. There is no attempt under the law to get at the railroad an a unit, as a complete thing; theie I J no' attempt to measure Its earning capacity; no- attempt to get at Its stock and bond value; ho attempt to reach Its franchise at all. The same Is true of street railways, gas companies and 'all fianchise cor porations. In many other states, probablj- a dozsn or flfteyi, the Ohio method of valuing merely thu ihv ileal property has been abandoned for vital U geneially spoken of as the franchise tax.
