SIXTEEN TAX QUESTIONS.
" MmSm
The Fairmont Times seems to stand
lonsor for John J. Cornwell, the Demratic
candidate for governor, and it
making some very loud claims 'as!
the result of the coming election,
lerefore, we think it fair that the
iople should know something of the
emocratic program in case of their
iccess at the polls.
We ask the Times the following
raightforward questions and desire
mple, direct, yes or no answers, withit
attempt at argument, evasion or
uddling:
1. In case of the election of Mr.
jrnwell and a Democratic Legislate,
would your party repeal the
ws in toto as passed by tho recent
:ssion of the Legislature?
2. Would you offer any relief from
e present iniquitous system sooner
an your platform proposes by callg
a constitutional convention?
3. Would you put back upon the
lunxies inc tuii oa jj-=i tcui. icv/ twi
:ate purposes?
4. Would you repeal the Dawson
?rporatlon law which now brings intbe
treasury nearly four hundred
ousand dollars annually?
5. Would you favor a reassessment
real estate before the regular time
r such assessment in 1910?
6. Would you advocate the true
id actual value as the standard for
jsessing real estate and personal
roperty as recommended by the tax
jmmission?
7. Would you favor different stanards
of valuation, say one standard
>r farms, another for town lots, anther
for business houses, and anther
for residences?
7. Would you assess the railroads,
degraph and telephone lines at their
;ai and actual value?
8. Would you assess the freehold esites
in coal, oil and gas to the own*s
of the surface?
9. Would you endeavor to get more
ixes out of the large coal fields and
ast tracts of timber now practically
ntaxed?
10. Would you remove the additional
cense fees imposed upon various
irms of business by the new laws?
11. Would you let the fees of the
;cretary of state and auditor go into
ie pockets of those officials as forerly
instead of into the State treas-y?
12. Would you levy a tax on the
"oduction of coal, at say so much per
m, or otherwise?
13. Would you levy a tax on the
oduction of oil, at say so much per
arrel, or otherwise?
14. Would you levy a tax on gas,
: say so much per thousand cubic
et, or otherwise?
15. Do you believe the present, or
d system of taxation, good enough?
16. In case of Mr. Cornweli's elecon
without the Democrats' being
>Ie to control the Legislature, would
e not have hell, politically speaking,
>r the next four years, with business
nsettled, the Republicans trying to
lforce the new laws and the Demo ats
trying to break them down?
These questions are asked in good
ith and if we do not get straightrward
answers to them we shall atibute
the failure to hypocrisy or
iwardice.
The Democratic misrepresentation
id falsification of the new tax laws
is caused everybody to make a study
' them, and tne result is many Demoats
who see wherein they will be
eatly benefited by the recent legistion
are giving it their indorsement
irbally and on the Sth of Novemir
will do so with their ballot?cast
in favor of the party that believes
. and has given tax reform to the
;ople. The Democratic indorsement
not confined to Marion county. It
pronounced throughout the State
id will be more so us the campaign
rogresses. If the election could be
3ld a month later than it will be the
epublican majority instead of being
2tween 25.000 and 30,000 would be
),000 or more. The people have
3en clamoring for tax reform for
sars. and now that they have got it
ley propose to give it a trial.
We welcome to our city Hon. Anro
Zagnoni, who addressed our Italn
citizens - at the Court-house last
ght. Mr. Zagnoni is a native of
ologna, Italy, the city of the marvelis
Marconi, inventor of the wireless
-stem of telegraphy. He is the New
ork correspondent and journalist for
ie "Bollettine Delia Sera." He
leaks Italian. Frencii, Spanish, Geran.
Modern Greek and several other
nguages, and although it is a little
oublesome, he can talk English.
Mr. Zagnoni is here in the interest
the Republican party and he will
) a great deal of goo.d for that orinization
and subsequently for the
itire country.
Republican hearts are heating in
lison and Republican voices are
ending happily together from Hanicl-c
to McDowell and from Cabell to
ifferson, all preaching one doctrine
id proclaiming the same truths conirning
the new tax laws. The
leakers all have the same tlieme aud
le newspapers are all giving the
.me vigorous and valiant service and
s is either a fool or a knave who
inks such united action shall come
naught.v
KNAPP AN?APPEAI
?:
ANOTHER ONE'OF SUCH RATHE
: N UMEROU S ACT! ON & ON THE
MAYOR'S DECISIONS.
POLICE COURT HAS BEEN At
OLD TIMER TO-DAY?INtCDCQTIWr;
r.ACFQ ON
In police court this morning, th
trials of Harry Knapp and W. G
Bosserman. not to mention the tw
minor cases, took up the entire for
part of the day.
Knapp was accused of drunkenness
fighting and resisting an officer o
Tuesday night at the B. and O. sts
tion. He and Harvey Lanham had
little trouble, which resulted in Knap
striking the latter. Officer Hess plai
ed Knapp under arrest, and whe
Knapp asked to remain on the pla
form a few minutes in order to l
the crowd dwindle away before bein
taken to Jail, and also to get a chanc
to see Yardmaster Riggs, Hess a
tempted to take him, and called fo
assistance. H. H. Sharp was depi
tized and pinioned the strugglin
man, when Hess hit liim a blow o
the head with his mace and once i
the face. Several bystanders askp
Hess not to strike him again, an
offered to assist in the arrest, whic
was finally made. Several of th
witnesses pronounced the affair a
brutal, and all witnesses, with the e;
ception of Hess, declared Knap
sober, j-et in the, face of this. Hi
Honor found him guilty of the tw
latter charges (that of fighting and ri
sisting an officer, and fined liim $1S.CM
upon which an appeal was taken..
Knapp also went to Justice Amc
and swore out a warrant for Hes:
This will be heard to-morrow mon
ing at 9 o'clock unless a contmuanc
is given.
It is reported around town the
Knapp's friends and fellow worker
will circulate a petition to present t
council, asking for Hess' removt
from the police force.
Attorney Grant represented the d<
fendant, and his argument at the cor
elusion of the trial was anything hi
complimentary to Hess. In answe
Solicitor Stanley denounced the set
timents as anarchistic, etc., an
claimed that more trouble resulte
from arresting or attempting to aires
a railroader than from all other gang
of people combined.
Tlio other lengthy case was that c
the City vs. W. G. Bosserman, for sel
ing intoxicating drinks on Sundaj
on complaint of O. J. Fleming, bacl
ed by several preachers and churc
workers in the city.
This trial did not get under wa
until late, the result of Lawyer Vii
cent's obstinacy regarding the pre;
ence of witnesses, not allowing th
trial to proceed with what witnesse
were present, and then examining th
absent ones when they appearer
Finally the doings commenced, wit
Attorney Morgan as defendant's com
sel, while Stanley, DeShields and Vii
cent handled the city's end of it.
The first thing to stop proceeding
was a defective warrant, and the sei
ond one bore a date prior to the tim
complaint was made. Attorney Mo:
gan made a motion to quash the wa:
rant, and this motion being overrulet
pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Arthur Trimmer was the first wi
ness called. He is a shipping clerk i
the employ of the Monongah Glas
Company, and has only been in th
city three or four weeks. Messrs
Fleming and DeShields allege that h
told them yesterday that he bougl
beer at the place mentioned on Sui
day, and acknowledged this mornin
that he had drank in some saloon i
that neighborhood, but could not 1<
cate the particular one.
Charles B. Hutson? of this city, wa
next, but he was never in the saloo
in his life and never bought anythin
there.
George Smith, of the First wart
had never bought or drank anythin
in the place on Sunday's or afte
hours.
A search was being made all thi
time for one Uriah Orr, but he coul
not he found, so at 12 o'clock an ac
journment was taken until two. Prt
vious to the big trials three prisot
ers were up on little "teeney" charges
At least .three were brought up, bu
Seotly Jones was released, while C
o. erect ana itoueri. i\iiaeisuu ?ei
fined $5.00 each for drunkenness.
Waiting For Decision.
Uriah Orr was found hy 2 o'clocl
and immediately placed on the stand
and swore that he procured beer 01

ing. Quite a little uneasiness is fel
by saloon keepers in the city who liavi
flagrantly dispensed the stuff on Sun
days and after hours. They fear this
is the beginning of a concentrate!
crusade against this form of violation
At press time .the mayor had renderet
no decision.

fined $50 and costs. He will take, ai

The Republican Way.

the Republican ticket because they

which have been abolished under

township farms pay $4,000 less tax'
than in 1S03, and the farmers'say to
