GOODRICH SAYS TAX
BOARD IS RIGHT, BUT
HERE ARE THE FACTS
ADMITS TAX
AND UTILITY
BOARDS ERR
Misquotes Figures Presented
in The Times, Replying to
Expose of His Taxes.
MAKES FINE OFFERS
Gov. James P. Goodrich, In a statement
made public yesterday designed to clear
himself of the charge of receiving favors
from the state tax board or the public
ftrvice commission, has admitted:
1. That the Washington Water,
Light and Power Company, in which
he is personally Interested, has been
valued for rate makipg purpose* by
the public service commission at
many thousand dollars more than it
is renlly worth.
2. That the public service commis
sion has failed to do Its duty as pre
scribed by the law that created it in
regard to the Jeffersonville Water,
Light and Power Company.
3. That both the public service
commission and the state tax board
hare deliberately permitted overvalu
ation of the Union Heat, Light and
Power Company property
4. That he is personally interested
in all these companies bo the extent
of being able to Bell stock In them.
Mr. Goodrich says that the Washington
company “would not sell today for a sum
approaching Its full .appraised value,”
which he says is $312,000.
PETITION AND GOVERNOR'S
STATEMENT DIFFER.
Yesterday there was filed with the pub-
U 9 #ervlco commission a petition for an
advance in rates by the Washington
company in which the petitioner declares
that the public service commission has
valued its water property at $253,000 and
its gas property at $102,500 or a total for
these two parts of its business of
$300,500.
This- total Is $77,300 more than the
governor's statement of the total tax
value of the entire holdings of this
company, and is the value on which the
company is now asking that it be per
mitted to base its rates for the people
of Washington.
Gov. Goodrich farther states that he is
willing to sell his holdings in this com
pany at 20 per cent less than Its valu
ation by the state tax board, thereby
contending that the real value of this
utilities is only $236,560.
Yet, ns a stockholder in this com
pany, on the very day he puts this
valuation on It, he has the effrontery .to
ask the public service commission to
permit it to charge rates based on a
valuation of $330,500, or $133,940 more
than he admits tbe property is worth.
In regard to the Jeffersonville com
pany, the governor says, “It never has
been valued by its officers, by tbe com
mission or any one else for rate-making
or any other purpose.”
HERE’S WHAT
THE LAW SAYS.
Section 0 of tlie act that created the
public service commission In Indiana
Bays:
“The commission shall vaJue all
the property of every public utility
actually used and useful for the con
venience of the public.’’
Perhaps Governor Goodriejj jean explain
v.’hy this property has nevet been valued
by anybody and why its officers report
its value at $274,662 in a sworn state
ment to the commission without havin::
made such a valuation. The .governor
does not explain in bis statement.
Instead his statement deliberately per
vefts what appeared in The Times,. and
is an attempt to base a defense on a
statement that has never appeared in
the complaint against the manipulations
of values before the state tax board
and the public service commission.
He says The Times states that the
valuation placed on this property by its
officers for rate making purposes is
$312,107. The Times slated that this
company is valued in a report to the
commission by its director., at $274.6*12.
while the state tax board assessed it at
$170,000. The of local assess
ments in. this cash brings Ihe total tax
ation value to $256,870, according to the
governor.
This still leaves a difference of $17,792
- between the valuation for tax purposes
and the valuation for rfite purposes and
as usual the difference is in favor of the
company.
In the case of the Union Heat, Light
arid Power Company, the governor de
clares “the property of this company Is
assessed today.for at least $50,000 more
than its cash value."
The governor overlooks the fact that
the taxing officials are sworn to value
property at its true cash value and an
over-valuation is as reprehensible as an
under-valuation.
He asserts a willingnes to deliver con
trol of the property for $25,000 less than
the value of its stock, which he says the
company reports as worth $142,200. On
this valuation basis'the property would
be worth $117,200.
Yet the governor asserts that the iwrk
of the tax board in its valuations Is “ad
mirable,” and, according to his own fig
ures, the tax officials have fixed a valua
tion for taxes on this property of $215,-
762.57.

ty to deliver large quantities of third

Urges Tree Planting
Along State Roads
Roadside tree planting as new high
ways are built and others repaired todav
was urged as a means.of beautifying the
roads of Indiana and bringing many oth
er benefits to the state by Charles C.
Deam, head of the forestry 'division of
the state conservation department.
Trees along the roadside assist in low
ering the temperature of tho surrounding
areas besides enhancing the scenic nil
ue, says Mr. Deam. They also protect
the macadam -or. gravel, causing It to
retain needed moisture in the drycst of
weather and thus keep down dust.
Walnut is urged as an excellent tree
for this 'purpose as it grows well in the
open and* .also is of great commercial

Governor’s Reply
to Times' Expose
of His Taxes
Here Is the statement made by Gov.
Goodrich yesterday tn reply to stories
printed in The Times in regard to valu
ations for taxation and for rate making
purposes of utilities in which he is in
terested :
“My attention has Just been called
to. three separate articles in your
paper on the 20th, 21st and 22d of
January with respect to the assess
ment for taxes of certain public
utilities in Indiana in which I am
interested. The statements are so
unfair and the alleged facts therein
stated so untrue that I ask you not
only to correct the statements upon
your own action, but to give this
statement the publicity you did those
formerly made by you.
“First, as to the Washington Wa
ter, Light and Power Company:
You state that it was assessed for
taxation at $165,860, while it was val
ued by the commission for rate mak
ing purpose for $312,000. Asa mat
ter of fact, the records show that it
wag assessed for taxation at $283,200,
or more than 90 per cent of Its fuli
appraised value. The Washington
Water, Light and Power Company's
entire plant wonld not sell today for
a sum approaching Its full appraised
value. The appraised value of the
property slightly exceeds tbe entire
amount of bonds, preferred stock and
common stock Issued by this com
pany. Upon the $150,000 of common
stock, the total amount issued and
outstanding, not a cent of dividends
has been paid during the last five
years, and not since tbe company
was orgauized has It paid to exceed
2 per cent annually.
WILLING TO
MAKE DONATION.
“As evidence of my good faith I
will sell the $15,000 of common stock
In this company that I own at 20
per cent, less than Its valuation, as
fixed by the state tax board. Not
only that, but If you will find me a
purchaser at this price, I will donate
the entire proceeds of the sale to
some educational or charitable in
stitution in the state. ’
“Under the rates fixed by the com
mission, this company has been com
pelled to borrow money to meet its
fixed charges without paying 1 cent
upon its $150,000 of common stock
during the past five years.
“The Jeffersonville Water, Light
and Power Company’s plant, you
state, was assessed* by the state tax
board at $170,000, while it was valued
by its officers for rate-making pur
pose at $312,107. This statement is
not true. In the first place, Its prop
erty is assessed for taxation at $256.-
870. It never has been valued by its
officers, by the commission or any one
else for rate-making or any other
purpose. The commission has noth
ing tr> do with it rates. It lias never
accepted the conditions of the public
utility law, but is operating under
the rates provided by an old fran
chise'and charges less than the fran
chise rates.
TAKES UP
ANOTHER CASE.
“The Union Heat. Light and Power
Company, you state, is assessed for
taxation by the state board of tax
commissioners at $190,000 and you
also state that the directors of the
company value their holdings at $312;-
107. This statement is not true in
either particular. The state board
of tax commissioners has assessed
the property at $190,000, but to this
sum is to be added local assessments
on real estate owned in Winchester,
Union City and Portland, Ind., and
also that part of the plant which'is
located in Part county, 0., all of
which go to make up a total valua
tion of $215,762.57, and this is the
sum shown to be the cost value of
the plant in a report filed with the
public service commission on Dec.
81, 1918, the last report filed. The
company’s own report shows that it
owns real estate in Portland, Union
City, Winchester and White Itlver
township, all of which is locally as
sessed. This company filed a report
with the state board of tax commis
sioners, which report shows that it
has outstanding $150,000 of common
stock and $82,200 of preferred stock,
and it reported the true cash value
of all its capital stock to be $142,-
200. The property of this company
is assessed today for at least $50,000
more than its true cash value.
OFFERS TO MAKE
ANOTHER SALE.
“As evidence to my good faith in
making this statement, I will agree
to deliver to you, or to any one
who will purchase it, the controlling
interest in this company at $25,000
less than the value of the stock as
indicated by the assessment for tax
ation of the property of the company.
“Every one of these facts stated
are matters of public record. Why
The Times wishes to distort the facts,
I can not know, except for polit
ical purposes, but I insist that it is
not legitimate to distort facts that
are matters of public record for the
purpose of discrediting any public
official.”
MAKE UP, JUDGE
TELLS COUPLE
Wife Dismisses Suit and Court
Gives Advice.
“Get together, make up • your differ
ences, live together and patch up your
petty differences," that’s the court’s idea,"
said Judge Linn Hay of the superior
court, room 2, yesterday, after the di
vorce case of Austin H. Barnsgrover and
Margaret Barnsgrover, 244 South McKim
street, was dismissed by Mrs. Barn
grover.
Judge Hay held that his court did not
have jurisdiction because Barngrover on
the witness stand testified that he moved
to Tennessee to engage in the rooming
house business and so intended to make
his future home there.
Barngrover testified in opposing his
wife’s cross-complaint filed to his orig
inal divorce- action, that his wife was
very quarrelsome and at one time locked
him out of his own home.
Baragrove claimed that he tipped the
scales at 187 pounds when "he married
and now weighs 137 pounds because of
spending long hours at work on a truck
and an Ice wagon.

WANT STATE
TO TAKE PIKE
County Officials Urge Board
to Build Pendleton Road.
Efforts to induce the highway commis
sion of Indiana to take over the Pendle
ton pike and improve It at once instead
of allowing Marion county to pave it
under the county unit plan, were made
yesterday by the Marion county commis
sioners, the good roods committee of the
county council, the county commission
ers of Hancock and Madison counties.
The stato highway commission was
represenated at the conference today at
the courthouse by Director L. H. Wright.
WANT ALL
OF ROAD IMPROVED.
The commissioners favor the improve
ment of Pendleton pike from the town
of Pendleton direct to Indianapolis.
Mr. Wright stated that the state high
way commission favored improving the
pike from Anderson to Pendleton, and
from Pendleton to Greenfield and then
come Into Indianapolis from the east
over the National road.
This plan is not favored by the com
missioners of Marion county because tbat
route is not a direct way into the city,
It is claimed.
Mr. Wright stated that he would
present the commissioners’ plan before
the state highway commission.
HAYES REVIEW’S ,
COUNTY WORK.
Commissioner Joe Hayes reviewed at
length the large sums of money being
paid by Marlon county for its share of
the improvements to be made by the
state highway commission, and insisted
that the county’s desire in this matter
be considered.
The county council probably will meet
the last of the week to consider making
appropriations to insure the improving
of at least seven important county roads.
The commissioners and the road com
mittee of the county council have agreed
upon a tentative road program and favor
a plan by which the state highway com
mission takes over tbe Pendleton pike
improvement.

KARL DETZER
NEW YORK, Jan. 27.—C01. O. O.
Alshire, Houston. Tex., testified as a
character witness yesterday in the re
buttal of th defense of Capt. Karl W
Detzer, on trial before a general court
martial at Governor’s Inland, on twenty
seven charges of brutality to army
prisoners while be was in command of
the department of criminal investigation
at Le Mans, France.
Col. Alshire testified that while com
mander of the first air department at
C’olombes-Les-Belles he was forced to
ask for the transfer of Lieut. Leonard
D. Mahon, a previous witness for the
prosecution, because Mahon was ineffici
ent.
Mahon, he said, advocated the reduc
tion of all sergeants to the ranks of
privates and by his. disciplinary method
of handling non-commissioned officers
created a spirit of rebellion la the men
under him.
MaJ. Thomas W. Campbell of Hart
ford. Conn., and Bennett H. Perry of

fense of the accused captain, further
attaeked the character of the testimony

Campbell, who Is now stationed at a
hospital at Ft. McHenry, recuperating
from wounds received in action, said
Mnh<yi often threatened to “knock some
discipline into the men” who were under
him.

"hard boiled bully” and a "bad actor.”
Mahon Is awaiting trial on charges of
beating prlsdners while under the com
mand of Detier at LeMnns,

Head Talks to Busi

STOPS FLOOD OF FAKERS
Remove the Better Business bureau and
Indianapolis will be the victim of a
plague of unscrupulous merchandising
and stock selling methods. Extend the
scope of the bureau and fraudulent ad
vertising and business practices will be
further reduced to tbe benefit of not
only the public but the trustworthy busi
ness enterprises of the city as well.
This was the message William P.
Green, organization secretary of the na
tional vigilance committee of the Asso
ciated Advertising Clubs of the World,
gave 100 representative business men,
who attended the luncheon at the Cham
ber of Commerce yesterday, marking the
opening of the bureau’s campaign for
Increased membership and funds for 1920.
Franklin Vonnegut, president of the bu
reau, presided and Merle Sidener, local
advertising man, who lias been associated
with Mr. Green in national vigilance
committee work, introduced him.
Mr. Green told of the work which the
Better Business Bureaus are doing all
over the country to eliminate unfair
business in all lines, particularly in ad
vertising and in “blue sky” stock sell
ing.
“ ‘Truth In Advertising’ is not a catch
phrase,” he said. “In principle it is a
world-old law. Advertising is a com
paratively recent development in the
business world, but it has long suffered
from those in business who have not
recognized that it is a force to be used
and not abused.
"Fraudulent and misleading advertis
ing is a small part of the total volume
of advertising, but It is not so small but
that it tends to tear down the confidence ]
of the public in all advertising. The!

To Get Strong and
Put on Flesh
People who have tried it say that one
of the quickest and surest ways in which
those who are weak, thin, nervons and
run down can grow strong and put on
pounds of solid stay-there flesh, Is to
take a 5-graln tablet of Blood-Iron
Phosphate with each meal. This is
doubtless due to the well known fact
that Blood-Iron Phosphate quickly
builds up depleted nervous energy and
at the tame time supplies the iron neces
sary to make rich, red, strength building
blood. If you are weak, thin, nervous,
or are lacking In the old time vigor, en
durance and optimism, go to Huder,
Hook, Haag or any other good druggist
and get enough Blood-Iron Phosphate to
last three weeks and take as directed.
If at the end of three weeks you don’t
feel one hundred per cent better and
aren’t In every way satisfied you can
have your money back for the asking.
Fair, Isn’t it? Better try It today—Ad
■ vertiseinent.
Eyesight Dim?
If your eyesight is dim, your vis
ion blurred; if your eyes ache, itch,
burn or feel dry, get a bottle of Bon-
Opto tablets from your druggist,
dissolve one in a fourth of a glass
of water and use to bathe the eyes
from two to four times a day. Bon-
Opto has given stronger eves,
clearer, sharper vision and relief to
thousands.
Note: Doctors say Bco-Opto strengthens eye
sight ao% la a week’s time in many instance*.
