Legislative Program of Colorado
Farmers’ Congress.
The recommendations of the- Legis
lative committee adopted at the re
cent session of the Colorado Farmers’
Congress ai Fort Collins and which
will form the basis of several meas
ures to be introduced at the forthcom
ing General Assembly, are as follows:
1. We recommend the enactment of
n comprehensive and adequate coop
erative marketing net along the line
of the California cooperative market
ing plan, r.n.d including reasonable pro
vision for bonded warehouses to the |
end that the co-operative marketing of
grains and other commodities requir
ing storage off the farms may be ac
complished in an orderly manner ami
adequately financed.
2. We recommend the amendment
of the present Anti-discrimination
law by making said Anti-discrimina
tion law in substance the same as the
Anti-discrimination law now in force
in the state cf Nebraska and other
We direct attention to the pres
-1 out imperative no-Hi for better and
| adequate farm credits, which matter
| h now Wing given serious considera
. Lon by the U. S. Congress, and if the
presen’ Congress fails to p-xivide for
uch needed farm credits upon a na
tional basis by Congressional enact
ment, then we recommend that the
| state of Colorado provide reasonable
i id adequate farm credits to the ag
, ricuitural industry of the state.
4. Recognizing That at present
'there is no just equalization of thi
t »x burden and that real property enr
i ies most of the load, and that in
tangible properties are under the pres
■ «*nt revenue law escaping taxation ul
mout entirely and that the continued
issur.nee of t‘.x exempt securities ic
rapidly removing from taxation vast
accumulations of the country’:- wealth,
therefore we recommend:
(a) Th*:t immediate legislation be
enacted to the end that all classes of
property be placed upon n fair and
< quul basis for taxing purposes, and
we pirticulrrly emphasize the neces
sity for observing the fundamental
fact that income earning power must
Ik* the mrin fnctor in determining the
value of farm lands for the purpose
of taxation as well as in determining
the value of industrial properties for
the purpose of taxation; and we re
commend that the present law be so
rmended as to make thin mandatory
upon the Tax Commission.
(b) We recori'mend that proper and
adequate legislation be provided for
the purpose of imposing upon intang
ible properties their fair share of the
burden of taxation.
(c) We recommend that the pres
ent Civil Service law be amended so
r.s to make it impossible for the Civil
Service Commission to extend or per
petuate the term of office of any ap
pointee beyond the period fixed by the
rtatutc which creates the office.
“From this date on, all dental work
done in my office will be for cash
only. 1 do not mean 30 days or 30
minutes. My experience covering 20
years of constant practice, proves that
less than 20 per cent of credit cust
omers live up to their promises. That
same experience teaches me that the
credit system in dcutistry is a fai’ure.
Tho losses incidental to the credit sys
tem have consumed my profits to the
extent that I must either raise my
prices or receive my full fees prompt
ly in every case.
“Raising the price only increases
the burden for the cash customer and
makes no difference to those who do
not pay. Therefore I will do business
upon no other basis than cash. This
means everybody.
“Also I insist upon keeping appoint
.ments to the minute. I am too busy
to waste from one to four hours each
day through tardinecs or broken ap
pointments. This method is the only
sane method in any business and I re
fuse to let the public dictate my prices,
terms or methods.
“I am most appreciative of the lib
eral patronage which I have received,
but I refuse to rob a good customer
to make up the losses upon poor ones.
“Wishing you all a Happy New Year
and thanking you for past courtesies.

Senator Filipps Writes Mr. Sweet.
In a letter to Governor-elect Wil
liam E. Sweet, Senator Filipps refers
to newspaper reports that Mr. Sweet
bus retained the Bureau of Municipal
Koscurch of New York City, to make
a survey of the State Government
with a view to reducing expenses by
abolition or consolidation of boards,
and bureau*. In part the Senator
“Some few years ago, a New York
Bureau of Municipal Research made a
survey of the various State Govern
ment departments .of Colorado under
arrangements made by a State Com
mission, of which I was a member.
The State appropriation for this pur
pose ( a* I recall it, amounted to y7,-
500, the work was duly performed, and
the reports filed with the proper of
ficials just about the time Governor
Gunter wus inaugurated. This report
is available, and 1 believe its use
would render it unnecessary to dupli
cate at this time the survey so re
cently made.
“My recollection is that some of the
recommendations of that report were
adopted, that others were pussed over
for rcusons on which I am not fully
informed, and further recommenda
tions were not adopted because they
involved amendments to the State
“I am writing to you promptly up
on receiving the information that you
contemplate having a survey of the
State Government made in order that
duplication of work, with consequent
expense, be avoided, but wish to state
that I have always strongly favored
any re-arrangement of governmental
activities thut will result in economy
and added efficiency. Fossibly, it may
be found advisable to have the form
er survey brought up to date, but, if
so, this supplemental work should be
inexpensive, as I feel confident that
the survey formerly made was thor
ough ami comprehensive.”
Company Reorganized.
J. O. Stream returned today from
a trip to Kansas City where he went
to confer with the stockholders of the
Missouri I .and Company with regard
to the lands included in their big six
teen hundred acre ranch east of La
mar and north of the river. The com
pany after listening to Mr. Stream’s
report of the work done since the
flood and present conditions, decided
to reorganize the company with Mr.
Stream as a stockholder and secretary.
They will have a Umar office with
him as manager, and will proceed to
put the lands in first class condition
for cultivation. Seven hundred acres
are already in cultivation and the bal
ance has been drained and will lie cul
tivated the coming season. Mr. Streum
was authorized to rebuild the resi
dence house destroyed by fire some
months since, and will begin active
operations at once to make the ranch
one of the prize ones of the valley.
Who Will Get The Money?
Millions and hundreds of millions
will be turned over by the government
to the holders of government securi
ties during the coming year.
What will become of this money?
The sharpest brains in the country
are studying ways and mrans to get
hold of it.
Will the savings of a life time of
m-ny individuals he dis3 r pcted in
speculative undertakings about which
the prospective investcr knows no
thing ?
If you w"rc sick or had matters
which needed legal attention you
would go to a doctor or a lawyer as a
matter of or.fety. By the same token,
when you have financial matters to
consider it is essential thnt you con
sult your banker or bend dealer be
fore lotting go of your hard earned
money in an investment of unknown
