WHY HANNA DID NOT WANT
THE BANK RECEIVERSHIP THROUGH EXPOSE OF CONDITIONS MADE RECENT LY BY FORMER GOVERNOR AT FARGO. That 29 state banks have failed since July 1st—not counting the tional banks that closed; That a section farm brought him $170, after the thresh hill was paid— and the taxes are $300 on that sec tion; That a farm of three quarters brouht him $2, after the thresh bill was paid; That under the new I. V. A. tax law, the HOMES OF THE PEOPLE) occupied by the owner (wiiich under the Nonpartisan law were taxed at 50 per cent valuation) are now taxed at 75 per cent of their valuation AND that business property formerly taxed al 100 per cent of its'valuation' is, un der the same new law', being taxed on but 75 per cent of its valuation; That over 200 families have left ! Fargo alone for other states, owing to high taxes and hard times. Well? Who said it? Some raving Nonpartisan farmer? Some wildeyed agitator Quit your foolishness—L. , B. Hanna, former congressman and former governor of North Dakota ut tered those facts! How did it happen ? There was a i fight on to compell Fargo city com mission to reduce taxes by cutting out the installation of a pump and a hos pital and a few trifles, and the busi- i ness men ami interested citizens ap- ; peared before the commission on Sep tember 12 to wrestle with the commis sion. The vote stood 3 to 2 for the "extras," but the debate brought out tire facts—and that is what interests every farmer. Fargo dailies carried reports of the meetings and of the remarks of the speakers. Of course the statement with regard to the number of families leaving the city was suppressed out of "local pride." Foolish pride that seeks to ignore and hide what actual formerly*the Courier-News.

The taxes on this furm are over $300. From an other farm of three quarters there was only a little over $2 left after the threshers had been paid. So you see I '. times our ex » said Besides these there are a number of national banks that have been closed. North Dakota is facing a crisis and it is up to all the govern mental agencies of this state to re duce expenses, lower the taxes, if we are to survive. We are facing a sit uation where the farmers of the state are not making expenses. Profit« From the Farm. 'For example: We just received v yhat we are up against. these we must curtail penses. Tax Cut on Business "In face of this, taxes are not be ing materially reduced. The taxes on homes, in the contrary have been raised. Taxes on business property which used to be based on 100 per cent valuation, ai e now lowered to 75 per cent, but on homes in which the own er lives, where the tax used to be based on 50 per cent valuation, the valuation has been raised to 75 per cent.
