One of the heat features of the new

K> ;V If a man were fortunate enough to
I have some money laid by It took nearp.i
ly all Its earnings to pay the taxes be|
j cause It was assessed at its real value 1
te ;; while other kinds of property varied
jiv from one-half to one-tenth of their true
i'/V " and actual value. Thus a man In the
W- Ctty of Fairmont, for Instance, who '
hid $1,000 on interest at 4 per cenl.
fcr. fin -bank had to pay to the sheriff $29.60
out of the 140.00 earned, leaving him
gj|? only 110.50 as the interest on $1,000
jr';' - for a year, while his neighbor might
|fe . have property of .various kinds worth
p-. * five or six thousand dollars and bo

now a man hawing $1,000 In money in
Fairmont has to pay but $S.?S on II Instead
of $29.50 as before. Thin will
explain how a man like Mr. ft. F
Blackshere, of Manulugton. for In
MUllcc, nilUDi' iu? uvnvm iut i.un Hill;

trict, Is benefited by the new law. Air,
niackshere's fuses In 1904 were ?!,
370.92, while in 1900 they were only
1093.00, making a saving of $033.32,
for one year. That is a saving that
counts and we give II to show llml the
new tax* laws are designed to treat all
fuirly, being no harder on the poor
than on the rich nor vice versa. Take
Ihe banks as another example. While
their assessments are vastly higher
than ever before, under the new law,
the rate lias dropped so low that there
is an actual saving this year over the
tastes of last year for some banks, especially
those that had heretofore
honestly certified their valuations.
Hence It comes about that many people
who thought they would be oppressed
by the newdnx system will Be
very materially benefited by it. The
framers of that law builded for better
than the masses of the people knew
and the tax ticket Is proving it.
"Air. Rlley made It clear in his talk
before the Harrison county Democratic
convention the other day that
he was not as much interested in his
own case as he was in the election of
candidates to the Houes of Delegates.
Why is this? Because they know
Rlley can't be elected, and a grand1
stand play Is to be made to land Joliu
T. McGraw In the United States senate.
That Is plainly the game. ?West
it is similar in a good many other
districts, The uemocrais wuuui rauier
carry the Legislature in West Virginia
than elect Ave Congressmen.
What would it mean to let the Democrats
ger control of this State again?
The shadow's I timing back on the dial
of Aha/, would be a small thing in
comparison with the backset business
would get in this Stute. Democratic
tinkering with the tax laws would disturb
everything. Even if the laws
were not repealed in toto, the agitation
would be a cold blanket thrown
on the State's development. This is
but a particular case. The Democrats
would try to break up all that the ttepi.blicnns
have done In the matter of
taws, and the discouraging result
would extend throughout the State
mid would continue until such time
us the Democrats could be displaced
again. ? .
One of the immediate results would
be the election of a Democrat to the
United States senate. Whether Me-1
Urnw would be the man, or wnenier i
jiio of iho Chillons would succeed in ;
downing him. the result would he the
same. West Virginia \yoidd lose pros-!

?.evtlsement West Virginia could have
twny from home. The flow of capital
jur way wouM not slop altogether,
>ut It would receive a check whoso

he danger of Democrats carrying th.?
egilaature is remote, yet we must not
ose sight of the fact that tiie Janrer
that is ignored is always an unknown
quantity. It may pass harmlessy
by, or it may bring ruiu. It is the
tart of wisdom to take no chances
tith a peril which seems remote. The
democrats will fall far short of carrjug
the Legislature if the Republicans

tvns that of a guardian of some children.
The amount In his hands was,
presumably, in money as Its valuation
tvns the same in 1904 as In 1800, and
was given in at 02,000. Heretofore,
the money left by a dead father ot
perhaps both father and mother, tn
the helpless children had been paying
out taxes far beyond lis proportion
ate share and thus robbing Hie orphans
to that extent. This year antler
the now law there was a remarlta
hie saving, the taxes being only $12.10
as pompared with $12.00 ip 1904. This
!r only one case of many. Who Knows
how soon a father and mother might
be taken from the family pnil the money
value of the estate hate to be
placed In the hnnds of n guardian? A
saving of $29.90 on every two thousand
dollars for each year would
amount to considerable before long
The low rate of levy is a great blessing
to thousands'of tax payers and the
end Is not yet for the new laws are
only beginning tile great work they
are designed to accomplish for the
masses of the people.

the State and two years ago was unc

simply couldn't see any good In them
at all. They were wholly and entirely
bn.l in Its estimation. But somehow
or other a little Unlit.has broken
in on it nnd the Record not long ago
conceded that there were some goo.i
points in the law. This seemed to
have set some people, presumably
some of. its Democratic friends, to
snylng things about the paper's attitude
and tills week It blurted out the
following very postive statement as"
to Its position on the tax question:
"The Record's position on the tax
laws has been plainly set forth in
these columns heretofore. A few designing
young men are trying to mislead
the people in*"ihis matter, for

whatever portions of the tax laws are
