ard of Integrity Efforts To secure
a Better System of Taxation Has
Been Persistent for Fifteen Year.
Frankfort. Ky. (Special) The ef
forts to secure a better system of taxa
tion for Kentucky have been per
sistent for fifteen years but owing to
the ironclad restrictions in the state
constitution it la exceedingly difficult
to secure any change.
Tax commissions have repeatedly
been appointed by authority of the
legislatures and these commissions
have unanimously condemned the gen
eral property tax which was adopted
by the last constitutional convention
and as the law Is constitutional it has
been Impossible for the legislature
alone to repeal It
However, the last general assembly
undertook to amend the constitution
as provided by law and this amend
ment will have to be ratified by the
people at the November election and
if It fails to carry it cannot be voted
on again for another five years.
The effect of the present law is to
drive people and money from the state
and to prevent other people and money
from coming In and building up our
This is how the general property
tax is regarded by outsiders as indi
cated in a report of a commission ap
pointed in another state and it ap
plies in all respects to our present
tax system.
"The personal property tax is a
farce. It falls Inevitably upon the
comparatively few who are caught.
The burden It Imposes upon produc
tion is out of all proportion to the
revenue it produces.
"Year after year state and local as
sessing boards have denounced it as
impracticable, in its workings and un
just in Its results. These recom
mendations have for the most part
passed unheeded or have led to in
effectual attempts to bolster up the
law. It is time the situation was
faced squarely, and the tax in its
present form abolished.
"So far as the personal property
tax attempts to reach Intangible forms
of wealth, its administration is so
comical as to have become a byword.
"Such a method of collecting
revenue would be a serious menace
to democratic Institutions were it not
so generally recognized as a howling
"But it is not a farce to those who
are fully assessed. These are chiefly
the widows and orphans who are
caught when their property is listed
ni the probate court farmers, retail
merchants and others, incorporated or
unincorporated, with stocks of goods,
and the small investors who are not
skillful enough to make non-taxable
The state referred to has changed
its tax system and already the receipt;
from taxation have Increased enor
uously and the peculiar effect of it
has been to lower the taxes on land
und improvements by securing a great
er revenue from personal property
hich had formerly produced little or
no returns.
Kentucky must Increase Its revenues
to keep up its schools and public in
stitutions and it would be manifestly
unfair to make the property at present
paying taxes sustain this added bur
den, but under the present law there
is no other recourse.
If the amendment carries and the
legislature is empowered to. classify
property so as to bring under the as
sessor's scrutiny the vast amount of
personal property now escaping taxa
tion the revenues can be increased
and taxes on lands and bouses dimin
ished and what is more Important than
all we will be able to develop our re
sources, maintain our population and
attract capital and people who will
help to build up the state.
- Ohio has recently changed its tax
laws and has already been benefited
and Tennessee is about to renounce
the general property tax. Other
states have either long since abolished
it or are preparing to do so.
The present system in Kentucky was
popular when the country was young
and wealth largely confined to real
estate which could not be hidden.
Wealth is now largely in persona)
securities which the assessor can not
locate and In consequence this class of
property escapes almost entirely.
Can we afford to neglect this great
question and yet hope to compete with
neighboring states which are less fa
vored than ours naturally but have
the advantage of cheap money and low
If the amendment falls to carry the
next census will show that Kentucky
has moved down another peg or so in
its standing among the states and
those at present paying taxes will in
evitably have to pay more on the
same property while others will es
cape by hiding their personal property
from the assessors.

As Bad in Atlanta.
Under dale of October 21, Mr. T. R.
Walton, writing from Atlanta, says :
"We had snow yesterday and frost this
morning. Can you beat it?" Well, not
so as you can notice it. Atlanta seems to
be getting as bad in climate as this. It
wasn't always thus, according to an old
residenter, who told us on our first visit
to the Chicago of the South 20 or more
years ago, that snow was so unusual
there that when the great Patli was
singing there one night it got noised
around in the theatre that it was snow
ing, when almost with one accord the
audience rushed out to see it. Since
then we have read of many snows there,
and the citizens are almost as much used
to them as we are.

long after the death of the body. But it
is often killed through neglect osunisuse.

and dull-looking, is entirely to blame, be
cause of not giving it the proper care. It
is easy to take care or tne nair easy to
make it more beautiful. Use Uaronony
Hair Beautifier, to make it glossy, soft
md silky, and Harmony Sham poo to keep
hair and scalp thoroughly clean.
Harmony Hair Beautifier, delightfully
perfumed with true rose, is very easy to
apply simply sprinkles little on your
hair each time before brushing it. It con
tains no oil, and will not change the color
or the hair, nor darken gray hair.

free and clean, use Harmony Shampoo.
This pure liquid shampoo is most con
venient to use, giving an instantaneous
rich, foaming lather, that immediately
penetrates to every part of the hair and
calp, insuring a quick and thorough
cleansing. It is washed off just as quick
ly, the entire operation taking only a few
moments. Contains nothing that can
harm the hair, and leaves no harshness
or stickiness just a sweet cleanliness.
