BEN LEETE ON TAXATION. SAYS NEVADA WILL LEAD. He Wants the New Zeland system i Adopted in Nevada. ..But Its ' Too Novel. Ben Leete of Reno iS in town today. He suggests a system of taxation that will make people settle taxes and in an interview said: "Years ago the tax dodgers were evading taxation just as they do now The idea of making counties pay in a lump sum and segregation state from county taxes is a good idea. It would result in a raise in valuation so that the state would have her real wealth advertised abroad. Now we pay taxes on about one tenth of oud property and the outside world think there is nothing here. Years ago I advocated the idea of letting any taxpayer fix his own val uations. He would fix his property at the cash price he would sell it for and if any man came along and off ered that price he had to sell. Well that system "was oo radical and it was never adopted, but they tried St in New Zeland in 1880 and have never changed the system. It works to a Charm and every one puts in the full valuation at what he is willing to sell for. But that idea is too simple for Nevada and the state will continue to be away behind the age in the matter of collecting revenue They want an antiquated and complicated tax system and are getting It o-o A PUBLIC VINDICATION.

But scien . title opinion does not support it. !. Years ago a member of the United I Slates geological corps wrote for the place an inch wire cable along the proposed route, to which a 300 horse power distillate engine will be at tached, propelling, ten loO-ton ore wagons by a release clutch system. The cable will remain stationary, a only five-foot machine working by the : engine and travelng hand over hand along the cable.

"There never was such a mining camp in the history of 'the country," said Roberts. "The development of rich fields is scattered all over the state. Nor is it confined to gold. The Tonopah field is extremely rich in silver. It may yet develop rivalry to the famous Comstock lode.

All of the players, with the exception of two, Theresa Miller Rothe and Clyde M. Benson, in the heavy roles, are well known to Lyceum patrons and were accorded a pleasant reception. The story of the play is based around a Jeanette Logai wife of Tom Logan, the leading character, and a New York adventuress. In the open ing act she is an accomplice to the murder of her husband's father and flees vvi;h her lover, remaining long enough, however, to swear that her husband did the deed, for which he is sent up fr life, but afterwards pardoned. A tramp Jem Mason, en ters in time to see the murder com mitted. He afterwards discloses everything. As usual in a melodrama everything ends well. The character of Tom Logan was taken by Lincoln J. Piumer. Clyde M. Benson, assumes the role of Fred erick Armsdale, the "idol" of the gallery, o. M. Paul takes the juven ile part of the play. John Hart is seen as Jimmy Logan. Among the women characters that of Jeanette Logan was acted with wucu creuiL uy ineresa uuiiie. xviiss Rothe made her initial appearance in St. Joseph with the "Human Hearts" production yesterday. She has a good voice, pleasing manner and is well adapted to her part. Rose Emerson assumes the role of Ruth Larkins; Eva Scott as Limpy -Sacramento Bee. o-o- for RICH ORE IN THE MUSTANG. ADVERTISING OF THE BANK The knaves who impugned the motives of Senator Pyne and Senator Oddie in discussing the probable de feat of the railroad bill now take a back seat. Without any foundation they assailed the character of both gentlemen by alledging that they were railroad lobbyists with a thin veneering of respectability to conceal their real motives. This sinister ac cusation was publicly denounced in ?he senate by the senators from Nye and Esmeralda, but the statement were deliberately suppressed and the accused were denied the justice that they were entitled to. There is no longer room for doubt as to the attitude of the senators from Southern Nevada, as all, not excepting Campbell of Lincoln, were there with the goods when it came to the question of going upon record. Senator Pyne has acted throughout the sessions of the assembly for the best interests of the people who sent bim to the capitol. Goldfield is es pecially indebted to his sedulous ac tivity for the success of the county seat, the school bonds and the issu ance of bonds for the erection of a suitable courthouse. Now he .has further endeared himself to the min ers and business men by insisting up on the passage of a bill to regulate the railroads. He has redeemed every pledge that he gave his con stituents, and the Tribune wishes to extend the right hand of fellowship and say that if the voters of Nevada insist upon retaining a Democratic administration at Carson City that Senator Pyne should be their candi date for governor at the next general election.

The Chinese read the Jap language and now insist that he pay a litle deference to their language by having some Chinese cards print ed. Liv., who always keeps abreast with his Chinese lexigon. o-o PERFECTLY CONSTITUTIONAL There has been a lot of talk about the Boyd-Syphus rate bill not being constitutional. Just as an interesting reminder to the legislature of Nevada, attention is drawn to the fact that the supreme court of the United States decided the case of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa road commission of Texas recently favorably to the state. It involved the right of the commission to fix state freight rates. o-o The great argument used against the commission feature of the Boyd Syphus railroad bill is that the com mission would entail great expense on the state. That may be true, but how much would the right kind of a commission save the people if they were given the necessary power to enforce reasonable freight and pas senger rates in this state? The In dependent believes that the amount saved to the people would far exceed the expense of the commission. Cre ate the commission and clothe it with the necessary power to enforce its de cisions, Mr. Legislators, and let us try it until the next legislature meets. Then, if It is a failure, the law can be repealed. Give it a trial. Elko Independent. Mr. James Garat of Winnemucca, committe: suicide In san trancisco by drinking carbolic acid.

Until recently bankers looked upon advertising as publicly inspired by a desire to favor the newspapers with some patronage, a conclusion that it pays to advertise being seldom taken into consideration. It was not until lately that this idea was replaced with the fore-gone fact that bank advertising, when it is done intelligently, is very profitable: and what has accomplished more than anything else to force this change in opinion was the increase in deposits of the banks that adver tised. The advertising banks in one state alone, during a period of five years, gained 21 per cent, in assets and 23 per cent, in deposits, while those banks that did not avail themselves of advertising lost five per cent, in assets and seven per cent, in depos- the capital already subscribed carrying out the 'an. , Eighteen inch tires will be used on Fabulously rich ore is the report the wagons on the trains for carry of the Mustang property at Manhat-! ins the ore over the sandy desert, tan where a vein is said to have been The right of way will give the men encountered that runs $3000 to the I who build the road exclusive right to ton.

I In commenting upon this subject the Wall Street Journal draws atten tion to a very good point hanks ought to bring out in thier advertising It says that in the last 40 years there have been only 438 national banks that have failed, although within the same time there have been five or six panics. Ths liabilities of these banks amounted to a little more than $103,000,000, and 78 per cent, of this sum was paid directly out oFthe assets of the failed banks. The Wall Street Journal says that three-eights of one iper cent, on cir culation would have redeemed all the outstanding circulation of failed bank3. This proof of safety in banking, if advertised constantly, will increase the deposits and assets of a hank by the accretion of new funds, within a very short period of time.
