In his speech at

larrison's address
I ft to add so much as his tinte
burden. The special pur'address
to-day is to press
ae well-to-do people of our ,
ties, and especially of our (
ies; that one of the condi- <
the security of wealth is a |
oate and full contribution to j
ases of the State and local (
ints. It is not only wrong, (
unsafe, to make a show in
is and on the streets that is
in the tax returns,
y is the golden thread that '
ugh all the fabric of our civ- ?
tions?the dominating note 1
veiling symphony of liberty. s

iversal peerage. And as a s
necessary and imperative h
octrine of an equality of 10
he doctrine of a proportion- 11
ratable contribution to the r'
ministering the government. tj
is principle of a proportion- 11
n might be more properly ?
inherent part of the doc P
onesty jn Taxation, is
part of our individual covethe
State as citizens that S1
lonestly and fully, in the a
oportion fixed from time to
w, contribute our just share
ilic expenses. A full and

citizenship. To evade that duty T

The tax-paying conscience is ('<

it to emphasize if I can. the m
ht that the preservation of this n<
pie of a proportionate contribu- ui
according to the true value of
each man has. to the public extures
is essential to the mainte
of our free institutions, anc of v
and good order in our commuI
do not- say that, every tax
be universal and touch all propjf
every hind. The general proptax
must do so. but I recognize el
act that excise taxes and fran- 11
taxes, and such like, may be lev- R
i addition to the general proper- *1'
c, and that the requirement as to al
taxes is only that they be uni- 01
in the class which is subjected to m
which came to its members during*
the years of the civil war. Mr. Lin- c
join's startling declaration that this g
jountry could not continue to e>:ist ^
half slave and half free may be para- _
phrased to-day by saying that this ~
jountry cannot continue to exist half ^
axed and half free.
Stir Our Consciences.
I cannot believe, however, that it is
mpossible so io stir the conscience if
our people, so to stimulate the in- **
lependence and courage of oar assesiors
and of our courts and prosecuors
as to secure a fairly general en- orcement
of the personal property *
ax. 1 know that men hesitate to call
i neighbor to judgment in this mater.
We have too much treated the .c
natter of a man's tax return as a per i
onal matter. We have put his trans- ?
ctions with (he State on much the
ame level with his transaction with
is banker, but that is not the true ^
asis. Each citizen has a personal inerest,
a pecuniary interest in the tax 5a&
Bturn of his neighbor. We are mem- (eg;
ers of a great partnership, and it is ^
le right of each to know what every <-l
ther member is contributing to the ?
artnership and what he is taking g
om it. It is not a private affair; it '
i a public concern of the first impor- g
ince. Perhaps there should be a '
eneral proclamation of amnesty and g
