PARKS FILES PETITIONS
BEFORE COUNTY BOARD
To Raise Gas and Street Rail
way Franchise Tax Hy
draulic List Doubled by the
Some .10 or more business and pro
fessional men of Mishawaka appeared
before the St. Joseph county board of
review Tuesday afternoon at 1:30, for
tiie purpose of urging' the board to
place franchises of public corpora
tions on the tax duplicate, and to
raise the franchise tax on the Gas Co.
and the Hydraulic Co.
The board during the day raised
the assessment values of $40,000 on
the last named company and lixed the
valuation for 1914 at $80,000.
Written petitions were hied by
Isaac Kane Parks with the board,
signed ey that attorney upon behalf
of the Chamber of Progress, and City
Attorney R. H. Jernegan upon behalf
of the city administration. Dan M.
Link of Auburn, Ind.. a member of
the state board of tax commissioners,
was present at the tiling of the peti
tions. The formal petitions recite that the
companies in question have evaded
just taxation for years In the city of
Mishawaka, and requested the board
to set a date for hearing, and to bsue
subpoenas requiring officials of the
company to bring before the board
books and data in their possession,
for the aid of the hoard in fixing the
amount at which the franchises
should be valued.
Mr. Parks, in presenting the peti
tion to the board, stated that the
representative business men of Misha
waka and the civic organizations
were back of the proposition and tfiat
they appeal to the bo?-d of review to
grant them relief. "Conflicting and
confusing court decisions," said Mr.
l'arks, "and rulings of local and state
tax boards have fo complicated af
fair that franchises of street rail
roads, telephone and telegraph com
panies have been shunted onto the
'Reautlful Isle of Nowhere whither
they have enjoyed absolute immunity
from taxation on their franchises, al
though the statute in plain terms re
quires that all franchises shall be
The petitions also demand that all
back taxes be collected.
The board of review fixed Friday,
June 19. at 9 o'clock as the time at
which they will hear the matter, and
issued orders to the Ga.4 Co. to be
present at such hearing, and to pro-
auce data and Information for the
aid of the board in fixing the amount
of the gas franchise. Mayor Keller
and Controller IT. O. Manning: of the
South Bond administration were pres
ent to note the prosress or the Misha
waka petitioners, and it is under
stood they -will take Kimllar action
against the companies. It was sug-
pested that the Mishawaka and South
Rend cases against the Gas Co. be
consolidated and tried together.
