AS Seen From The Dojj; Owners Standpoint. Mr. Walkrr S.yt Through And Hat Nothing Mora To Say, The following article from the pen of Mr. Woods Walkrr ns handed u several weeks ago, hut not until this lime rouhl ue find space to run it. We gladly submit it to our readers. Kilitor Central Record, Lancaster, Kentucky. Dear Sir: Replying to Professor LloyM's ar ticle in June Ath iuue of your paper would submit the following. As to paying losses, I have not changed my mind, in tiio least, never the leu. l'rof. I.loyd. to the contrary. My contention was fiom the lint that every penny of tho dog tax be applied to the losses, anil if this did not lUlTice, the County to make up the deficit, and pay same when claim M.ii proven nnd presented. Professor I.loyd says, "It may be possible that the law ill lutiotl would bo ns well enforced if fees to officials were lens" I admire his can dor. An hom-at confession Is good for the soul." I'rof. I.loyd says, "Something is causing this law to be more generally enforced than anj other dog law, ever was in Kentucky. This jhows how little he knows about the enforcement of It. There Me requ'rements in the law, nbiolutc ly unenforced, nnd no clfoit what ever being made to enforce same. His contention thit this dog tax.mon ev Is tin, "n.iti misers own monev" to uso as they please, Is groundless. ' What claim have they on it, further than being paid for sheep losses. Doesn't the law provide that nny sur plus, after paying losses belongs to the school fund. I reckon those Mad Idon County farmers who had losses, during January 1019 and have been told they will have to wait until 1020 to get their claims, feol that part of J tho fund at any rate, does not belong, to the sheep raisers. In answer to j my question, "how much sooner would this law become self support ing If half of Income from tax was not paid out for other purposes." I'rof I.loyd ajn "Judging from the experience of Madison County, not neurly ro soon, never in fact" Now l'rof. I.loyd makes this assertion, yet gives no reasons for snme. 1 suppose he expects us to take his word for it, as he has in a number of other eases. The 1'rofessors Interpretation of the law is nil right if it would stand the test, yet he is sadly In need of frets, ns evidence of which, I want to uirer, n letter written by tho Assist ant Attorney dcnernl, to the Com missioner of Agriculture, "April 21, 1919. Hon. Mat S. Cohen, Commissioner of Agriculture, Krankfort, Ky. Dear Sir: In your letter of the 115th Inst, you ask whether Section 29 of Chapter 112, Acts of 1918 means that claims tiled in 19IK shall be paid in full, whether there is sulTicient money in tin 11 1 K dog fund to lake rare of the same. Section in of the Chapter provides for the ircation of n County liie stock fund nnd. It further provid es ns follow s, "All monies at present in the Meg fund' derived from taxation of dogs, under tho existing law, shall be turn ed Into said fund, all bills imurrt I under this act, OH DUK AT THE TIMK OK THE PASSAGE Or THIS ACT, shall be paid out of said fund". Section 29 of the same Chapter, pro vides, in part, ns follows, "Any valid claims or parts thereof for los oi damage of sheep, horse, mules, cat ties, or swine, which have accrued under any general or local laws, at any time prior to the passage, of this act, shall not abate by reason of the repeal of such general or local net, but shall be paid out of the same fund of the proper County." , This appears to make it conclusive that it was the intention of tho ticn eral Assembly that all valid subsist Ing claims, under tho old law, were In tended to he provided for under this net, und that they were to bo paid In full. It would have been difficult for the General Assembly to have ex pressed this iden more clearly, than the sections ubovc referred to have expressed It nnd, I nm of tho opinion that tho claims accruing in 1918 should and must be paid in full, al though it may require somo of the fund collected in 1919 In order to carry out this provision of tho law." Yours very truly, Assistant. Attorney General." The County Clerk of Madison i 1 County hn Just tol 1 nit-, that no claims for damage, occuring in 1919 would be paid until 1920, under this opinion of Assistant Attorney uener ul. Now l'rof. I.loyd says that on -Match 31stT.19 the amount of mon ey accruing to the sheep fund of G.n rard County, after accounting for .ill j money received and spent under the operation of the new dog law is $223.93 more thnn the entire sheep fund of 1918. Now I'rof. I.loyd knows this statement is misleading, ns on March 31st he knows there is n large amount of expense not nc I counted for at that time, nnd cannot J be known what it will amount to, un- til December 3 lit 1919. Any Sheriff or County Clerk will tell you that it is impossible to de ' fray all these expenses in enforcing this law, for less than 50 per cent of the entire tux collected, and under these circumstances, I make the same statement, I made before, that Gar rard County had more money to pay sheep losses, in 1918 than she will have in 1919, nevertheless, l'rof. I I.loyd says this is contrary to facts. J Now 1 am deeply obliged to I'rof. I.loyd for his nttempted explanation, of why n $25,00 Kennel Tax, is about 'half, of what it would have been this year, under the old law. Perhaps he had made it plain to himself, but I ' nm afraid, to no one else. What dot. tax I paid in 1914, 1915, 191i. 1017, nnd 1918 has nothing whatever to do i with this matter. The fuct is, I kept n small pack of running dogs, until i the last 12 or IK mouths. Since then j I have iirpui ed u Kennel, nnd have 'err probably would hove from Su to Tups tho only two days old. j thread bare. Cut the price of wool Another matter that, that I wish , from i.' cents to 20 cents and lambs to refer to, and which I should have from 18 to 8 cents, then how many of spoken of, while discussing Madison us, would have patriotism enough to County Tax. The County Clerk of i continue to rais.i wool and shefp, cs Madisoii county, told me he paid peciolly if cattle were worth 18 cents $107.80 to his Editor for publishing End hogs 20 cents, j a list of those listing dogs, nnd the ex nnd number of dogs listed. Why is this necessary? The same identi cal list can be found in the Clerks Ollice, as furnls'ied him by the Coun ty Assessor. This same County Clerk said to me, that on account of i the dog tax, his offiic ynuld ,iay him ' $800.00 more money, this year, than Now it is unpatriotic, for n man to want his dog protected, even though he is paying a higher rate of taxation or. him, than any other property, yet lets see if there "are not others". Lets investigate I'rof. Lloyd's pa trio' '-m alon,: this partlcilar line. He iidnits he is a fimcr, yet doe. not own ii sh" p, nor e' er owned one, Thanking the Editor of this paper, for so courteously extending space to my nrticles, I promise not to further impose upon him. Very Respectfully, WOODS WALKER. last. He further said that 15 cents i e ,oea not say how long he has been for each license, instead of 25 cents farming, yet we presume, at least, w-fuld pay the County Cleik amply. J sjncc we iiavc been at war with Ger- This with practically $300. paid out, ' in the same County, for killing dogs, 75 dogs, during tho year. Now In this connection, I'rof. Lloyd says I should be more careful and less bus ty. Thanks for his unsolicited ad vice, for while possibly incapabk) to impart same, yet one should appreci ate the effort. I'rof. Lloyd says, "under the new law, u dog is subject to taxation, the moment he Is born, ranging from 1 to 4 dollars. This is true, yet is It commendable? Sup pose 1 own a bitch, and have paid $2 license on her, for tho year 1919. Suppose on December 31st 1919 she should whelp a litter of G puppies, all females, then on that day, there would be a tax of $24.00 due on that litter, and again, the next day, Jan uary lit, 1020 there would bo unother $24,00 due on this litter thus making a total of $48.00 duo on this litter of many. Now in all this time, during this distressing need of wool. Prof. is where some of the "leaks" are. Llovd. has never made nn effort, to I New Pi of. Lloyd draws the conclu-, 1C,, ,u,,py this need. And why nun, Hum ins siuicmeni, 111 u pn-j nasn t he? Ho tells us tumseii, in ins vious article, "that the Kentucky , ast article. "1 would like to own Sheep Growers Association framed ,onie, but urn afraid to. Am afraid this law", that I accuse the Kentucky ( ,oi; n,Ki,t kill one, like they did my Sheep Growers Association of graft, neighbors Mr. Price". Where is your but says my statement would have , patriotism Professor? Can't take a more weight, had I pointed out in chance on n dog killing one of your what shape or manner, they were sheep, when our soldiers needed wool grafter. Now he will pardon" me for . blankets so badly. I am afraid Pro contradicting him, 1 have never laid fersor, that if others had not had the charge of graft, nt any certain morc patriotism than some of us,, our persons door, but I will say this, that boys would have had to use cotton if the County Assessors or County blankets in trenches. Tis an easy Clerks, maintained a lobby, at Frank-, matter to be patriotic when nt the fort, during the last Legislature, I . gamc time wo are increasing our bank never heard of it. If l'rof. Lloyd , account, but let the tide turn, nnd our will refreshen his memory n little, 1 patriotism begins to wane. Now no believe he will ndmit that he was the t0ubt I'rof. Lloyd feels there are gentleman who first made use of the reasons satisfactory" to himself, why wont "tirart' when he said, "all of he should raise biscuit for the boys in ( us have seen so much of graft, that the trenches, instead of wool nnd , we nre constantly expecting it" mutton, and he has a right to say in Now Prof I.loyd raises tho issue wnat way he will help to sent. I Oldest Living Thing. The oldest IIIhe thing In the world Is thought to be the famous cj press In the iliiirchjnrd of the Tillage of Snntii Mnrlu del Tide, n few miles from, Mexico city. Imports lme esti mated Its ngo ns between fire nnd six thnu-niiil jonrs. It Is said tn havo been n stripling two hundred jenrs old when Cheops built the great pyramid. Exchange. The Unknown Quantity. Whin n thing like that happens a man duos not know exactly where ho Is or how he feels. The largeness and the smallness of the world niiiazo him; the mystery of life bewilders him; he Is confused In the presence of the un known quantity, llrnv he behaves, what he says or does, depends entirely lllinll lllstliifls l,,.iiiiil tils ,-oi't 'ul. This l what happened to Itlihard when he nearil the voice or Carina. Henry Vim I).iKe. whether any man owning 50 dogs "is Just the men to say tho last word in regard to the provisions of a much needed law, to promote sheep raising, by restricting dogs", Tim- no doubt is true, nnd yet I Hitter n'jielf, that I am Just as nearly qualified, as the Professor who never owned n sheep. Now Prof. Lloyd dwells at length on the patriotism of growing wool and raising sheep. Does it require nn unusual amount of patriotism to grow 05 cent wool and 18 cent lambs? And Is there uny more patriotism In rais ing (if. cent wool and 18 cent lambs, than in raising 20 cent Hogs and 18 cent cattle? Now no one admires true patriotism more than I, yet this has been camouflaged until worn don't blame him, for dogs can't gtt his biscuit, before the soldlws do, and they might get one of his sheep In conclusion I would say, that I accept I'rof. Lloyd's "Olive Branch", in identically the same spirit, in whicli ho offer it. I have no grieviencc whatever with him, yet to be perfect ly frank, I have frequently wondeted "Just where" he gets into this con troversy as he terms it. I knew from the beginning, he was no dog owner, and I rightly conjectured, he was no sheep owner. Then under the circumstances, wounld'nt it show a refined, considerate and gentle manly Instinct, to let the dog men and sheep men, settle their own grievances? Arctic Night.
