Chapter 41, Section 15S7 of the Revis
ed Statutes of Kentucky, says that who
ever shall bribe another shall on convic
tion be fined from tM to 1100 and im
prisonment from 10 to 90 days, or both
fined and imprisoned, and shall be ex
cluded from office and suffrage. The
conjunction which connects the tine or
imprisonment with the exclusion from
office holding and suffrage is copulative
and not disjunctive, thereby leaving, as
they say, no power in the judge to cit
out that provision. We suppose, iiow-
ever, that Judge Benton knows what be
is ab:ut, but if the contention is as our
lawyer friends claim, he has set a pre
cedent it will be hard for him to get by,
even if he did it because it was the first
offense of the accused. It seems that
the full peaalty should have been inflict
ed on the self-confessed bribers and then
the victory of the law would be much
more complete. At any rate the trage
dy has too much of a farce-comedy end'
ing to p'ease the audience. Had it been
different, there would probably have
been no additional case to deal with for
contempt as has appeared. Thereshould
be no Compromise with crime

from the good work Judge Benton is do

Corps, tells in Journal of the American
Medical Association of the wonderful re

vaccination for typhoid fever. lie says
that In 1902 with an enlisted strength of
80,7.8 officers and men, there were 5G5
cases of typhoid fever resulting fatally.
In 1909 out of 81,075 men there were 382
fatal cases. In March of that year vac
cinalioo was begun, but in too small an
extent to affect the ratio. In 1910 over
16,000 were vaccinated and the number
of typhoid cases began rapidly to dimin
minish till 1911 there were only 70 cases.
In that year vaccination for typhoid was
made compulsory on all persons in the
military service "and on all recruits. In
1912, the first year in which the entire
army was sought to be made immunr

hasn't been a single case of typhoid In

the past four years 230,000 persons bare
been vaccinated without a single death
or injurious result. .
With this knowledge before them, it

EQUITABLE SYSTEM DEMANDED
Last General Assembly Passed an
Amendment to the 8tate Constitu
tion Relating to Revenue and Taxa
tion. Frankfort. Ky. (Special) The last
General Assembly in Kentucky passed
an amendment to the State Constitu
tion relating to revenue and taxation
with a view of abolishing the anti
quated general property tax and sub
stituting a more flexible system known
to be more equitable and productive
of greater revenue In other states.
The tax commission appointed un
der another apt at the same session
made a thorough Investigation and re
ported unanimously in condemnation
of the present law and strongly urged
the adoption of the amendment by the
voters at the November election.
It is a significant fact that since the
adoption of the present Constitution
In 1891, which provided that "taxes
should be uniform on all property,"
large. volume of personal property has
disappeared from the assessors rolls
for the simple reason that such prop
erty was taxed out of existence or at
least out of sight
The owner of a bond, for Instance,
who received 4 Interest and was
called upon to pay In some instances
t or more In taxes either sold his
bond or failed to return It for taxa
tion and cash, notes, bonds, stocks In
foreign corporations and such like In
vestments are apparently no longer
owned by Kentucklans.
Burden of Taxes Transferred.
This has had a tendency to transfer
the burden of taxation to real estate
and other property in sight and Is not
nlT unequal but unjust
Ttx eBUt OWner "OUKI"
dlmlni8h tu Taiue and i order to
protect himself transfers of property
for "one dollar and other valuable con-
slderatlons" has demoralized the true
values and leaves the assessor no
guide to follow.
Our cltlsens have unblushlngly
omitted such Items In their returns
for assessment and havl felt Justified
in doing so,
The finances of the state have fall
en Into confusion and revenue agents
and arbitrary boards of so-called
Equalization have failed to discover
such property and secure their assess
Under the present law every man is
practically his own assessor and the
courts have sustained the practice, as
tne jaw permits no other course.
General Property Tax Desirable.
other states have long since recog
nized the inefficiency of the "General
Property Tax," and in these states we

accumulating, while the tendency In
Kentucky has been to hide our light
and incidentally our vaiuaDies ior tear
our progress has been retarded

chants we do not seem to have much
I kmHIi loft In tha state.
Money like water flows along the
I lines of least resistance, and If we
throw up a dam. However slight, it
will be diverted.
Such a trifling obstacle as taxes. If
unequally distributed, may prove to
be a barrier of Insurmountable propor
tions, however Insignificant It may
seem from a casual view.
No one desires willingly to become
a law breaker, a deceiver or an eva
der, and-yet he must be all of these If
he follows the old maxim, ""When In
Rome you must do as the Romans do.
Is this true? Go look at the asses
sors books and see where men who
are known 'to be wealthy get off by
paying little or no taxes on personal
1 property assessed by themselves.
Do self respecting men care to fol
low this example?
A shrewd business man may have
large Investments in bonds and fall to
return them for taxation by many well
known practices of evasion. He re
ceives the full return on his invest
A widow or orphan may be left

finds It out and sues for omitted as
sessments of former years and the as
sessor puts them on the tax list The
widow and orphan are compelled to
pay two or three per cent In taxes and
I live on the remainder.
ls such a system fair?
Taxes, In a free self-governed coun
try, should be the least matter to wor
ry about and yet they can be made so
unfair and Irksome they drive people
away and keep others from coming In.

We have a chance to remedy this
evil and if disregarded now we -will

I It is a clear duty to vote for this

vember election and every citizen In

which is worthy of thought: Many per

about the water rate, the gas bills and
electric bills, etc-., and max H no
worth while for the city to have a pub
lic inspector to read all meters each
month and pay for such service out of
the city treasury? By this means the I
people would know whether they were!
overcharged for such public convenien
ces: otherwise it seems to many persons
that in order the protect thepublio's in
terests thai all these public utilities
should be owned by the city. It is a
pertinent question ''Why should private
corporations fatten at public expense?"
The launtfry agents and works of this
city are in the "laundry trust" and have!
increased their prices from 25 to 50 perl
cent the past month. lias the patrons'
income increased accordingly? How
about a good man for an out of the
trust" agency for the city and let all the I
people stand by him, even after honest!
prices are restored. Who will be Ibis
trust busier?" We are with you, and

A SEVEN DAYS' FISHERMAN
By A. W. MACY.
In 1M7, when the kingdom of
Naples was under the grinding
rule of 8pain, a fisherman of
Sorrento was stung to madness
by the Indignities offered his
wife by Spanish officials, be
cause she had attempted to
smuggle a few handfuls of flour.
So furious wss he that he tors
down an edict that had Just
been posted by the authorities.
Ths whole population. Including
women and children, rallied
around him. Forty . years of
Spanish oppression had msds
them frantic They terrified ths
viceroy, resisted ths soldiers
successfully, and killed many of
the Spanish residents. They se
cured a revocation of many ob
noxious edicts, the sbollshment
of oppressive taxes, and full
pardon for all who engaged In
the Ineurrectlon. The fisherman,
whose name was Masanlslo, was
the leader In all this, snd be
came ths Idol of ths people. He
ruled Naples for seven days, but
his success seems to have
turned his head. Ho became

i feel certain there would be fewer maii orders sent
out of this town if the folks of this community realized
how complete and up to the minute a stock of boys'and
men's clothing and furnishings is at their disposal
right here in this store.
Most people who order by mail do sounder the belief
that they are saving money and obtaining the benefit
of a wider range of selection. ...
Every one acknowledges that when conditions are
usual, the local merchant who assumes a liberal share
of the burden of taxation and is in the forefront of
every movement for the town's best interests is en
titled to the preference.
Now my friends, the only favor I ask is that you in
vestigate and satisfy yourself as to the correctness of
my assertion. For example, I feature that splendid
make of hand tailored clothes for young men, the fam
ous 4'Collegian"line,also the National all wool standard
for boys, "WOOLY BOY" Clothes, the Florsheim
Shoe for Men and the "Sil Kid" Shoe for Women. -
See the great and pleasing variety of styles and pat.
terns, compare these clothes which represent the ut
most in quality, togealher with my very reasonable
prices, with any mail order merchant you wish. Con
sider that you do not have to wait days or weeks for
what you want, neither are you expected to pay for
your selection before you see it Also when any pur
chase you make here is not satisfactory I consider it a
priviledge to make it so and with out quibbling or
waste of time consumed by correspondence.
Your patronage is soliciied entirely on a basis of sat
isfying value and personal service which is possible
only when customer and merchant meet face to face.
I hope you "will take advantage of this invitation and
put me to to the test. Then you will do full justice to
yourself in the matter of obtaining the greatest possi
ble value and satistaction in your clothing, purchases.
Yours very truly
