IS KENTUCKY III HEED
OF THE TAXREFORM?
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

"Why is this man working so hard?"
"To get more land to pay MORE
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
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
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

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
Extract From Report of State Tax
'"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
"It follows precedents which have
been tried and proved successful In
"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

Two or three weeks ago the Era dev

about as much impression upon the
minds of our readors as a kick from the

, 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

"A fox chased by a dog has 30

But four lenps of the dog cover as

The same conditions exist Jn Ken

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."
