What Happened in "THE COW COUNTIES" in California aid Why "THE DOG TAX COUNTIES" in Kentucky Should Emulate Their Example Until a few years ago the State of California was Buffering under the same system of taxation which pre vails in Kentucky although many ef forts had been made to change it The average citizen is opposed to Innovations as a general proposition and while the state suffered and the burden of taxation fell heavily on the small property owner, as It does in Kentucky, it was hard to arouse the people and capitalistic classes man aged to keep the old law in effect and went on hiding their personal proper-.y and escaping taxation, as they do 1 1 Kentucky. f M? ...us iH "Why is this man working so hard?" "To get more land to pay MORE taxes." A simple careless expression in a San Francisco newspaper caused a revolution of feeling and brought about the change which all Califor nians are now proud of. The newspaper referred to printed an article to the effect that the same old Constitutional Amendment would be voted on at the November election and added facetiously that "the Cow Counties" would probably vote for it, and treated it as a joke. The newspaper evidently underesti mated the power of "the Cow Coun ties" as this little attempt at witticism made "the Cow Counties" sit up and take notice. The people in "the Cow Counties" commenced to ask themselves: Why is it that farm lands and town prop erty pay the bulk of taxes? Why are the owners of stocks, bonds, notes and other personal property able to get off scott free? Have we a uniform system of taxa tion in practice as well as in name? And such like questions. Well, the result was "the Cow Coun ties" in California determined to throw off the yoke and the amendment was overwhelmingly carried. ''''' M,,V''''''''" insan3 townlots "would as In other state with laws. In Pennsylvania state tax on farm lands and town loti because the revenue from stocks, bonds and notea Is sufficient' for the purpose. The dog tax in Kentucky produced more revenue In 1912 ($127,651) than all the taxes from bonds ($32,425), cash in banks ($64,240), and stocks in corporations ($14,000); total $110,665, while farm lands and town lots and Improvements paid $3,177,360. "The Dog Tax" Counties in , Ken tucky are in the same fix as "the Cow Counties" were in California and it is high time to quit barking and com mence biting. A vote for the tax amendment at the November election will make the other fellow do Borne howling, if "the Dog Tax" counties will only do their duty and vote for the amendment and enable the legisla ture to frame laws to make all classes of property pay their legitimate share of taxation. Extract From Report of State Tax Commission. '"We recommend, that the proposed Constitutional Amendment should be adopted by the voters of the state. "This Amendment has been care fully drawn, its provisions are clear and plain. "It follows precedents which have been tried and proved successful In other states. "It authorizes practical changes, which, in our judgment, if adopted, will increase revenue, remove restric tions now handicapping valuable en terprises, and place Kentucky upon i .'air plane with other states which bave shown marked progress and prosperity, as a result of sane and iound revenue laws. "It provides that any and all changei made thereunder in our tax' laws up to 1917 must be approved by the people themselves after passage by the leg isiature and their approval may be made a condition after that time, sc that the whole matter rests in th hands of the people. "We consider the. amendment nec essary in order to enable the legisla ture to take the Initiative in any ef fective revision of the revenue lawf of the state, which have been con demned by the then State Tax Com missions and criticised annually by the State Equalization Board.

A Light Judgement Two or three weeks ago the Era dev o'ed cousiderable space advocating a bond issue to build roads in Oldham County. As far as we know it made about as much impression upon the minds of our readors as a kick from the left hind foot of a bull knat would make upon a solid wall of concrete La Grange New Era. , What Is The Answer? Here is a problem in arithmetic that is puzzling all New York. Iljis takan from a very eld school book, and, despite its apparent simplity, the answers ob lained are greatly at variance. The problem; "A fox chased by a dog has 30 leaps the start of the dog. The fox taxes five leaps to the dog's three. But four lenps of the dog cover as much ground as seven leaps of the fox. At this rate, how many leaps will the fox take before the dog reaches U?" What's tde answer. "Why is this man working so hard?" "To hide his property and pay NO taxes." The same conditions exist Jn Ken tucky to-day and the same opportunity for a change presents itself and it is time for "the Cow Counties" in Ken tucky to show their power and force a fair division of taxation. By subjecting the millions of dollars ef personal property to the payment Value of Good Roads. Pennsylvania voters are soon to pass upon a proposed amendment to the state constitution authorizing a bond issue of $50,000,000 for building good rovds, and the Philadelphia Press, urging the farm ers to cast their ballots for the measure, produces these irrafutable arguments: ''Fifty million dollars spent in this State for good roads would pay hand somely nowhere a belter bonus than upon the farmsteads which must reap a largs share of the general benefit. ''Good roads will open up readier con nection between the farmer and his cus tomers. They will enable him more easily to get his products to the railroads. He can travel across good roads to mar ket where a bad road would make ibis impossible. lie can, on a solid highway, spead out to create fresh markets in di rections where to-day they do not exist. Good roads save time. This means mon ey. They save labor and wear and tear. This means a cutting down of expenses How much more horseflesh is required on a farm where adjacent roads are lumpy, rutted, and in bad condition than where sound roads make the journey light! Good roads do for the farm ex actly what Ihey do for any new wild country' They make an inroad for bus- ' iness and they make an outlet for pio duct. It is a simple matter of fact lhat where good roads have been built the farming business has improved and pros pered just in proportion to the road fa cilities created. And the value of any property goes up for its having a sound road or roads within easy reach." Some Day Those Guests Will Come Honestly Are You Ready?
