COVE COMMENTS
Liverybody seems to be all het
up over them taxes, there is gen
cral cussing both silent and
audible,
Those who did not vote for the
present riders on the Legislative
steed cean say, I told you so, and
those who did say well it would
make no difference who did {h
riding, but assertion is no proof,
We know what we have gol
we might have had better, it
could not haxe heen worse. And
to help reduce faxes our rviders
appropriated twenty thousan|
dollars to investigate the fax
problem. $20,000 isa mere bage
telle collecetively, but it is a nice
little piecce of legislative pie for
the few spenders, ahem! invest
igators, but it would look like a
mountain of prosperity for the
average eitizen.
Who is there that does not
know that big corporations like
the Puget Sound Milling Co. and
sundry railroads and others own
the greatest part of King county
and the state on which they do
not commence to pay anything
like an equitable sharve of their
taxes, ask anyone who has im
proved property adjoining sucl
land.
If the arrangement is satisfact
ory to the majority the present
riders will keep their seat in the
saddle but the minority may be
excused if they squeal when they
feel the galf.
There are various ideas as fo
the most equitable system .of
taxation, Some claim that the
land should pay all taxes. 1 hold
that income should be the ou
and nnly source of revenue start
ing on the basic cost of living
per individual and graduating to
the ultimate enormous individual
incomes.
- Just a word about tide land
taxes. You remember, a few
years ago that there was a boom
in tide lands and waterfron
owners were compelled to buy
to protect their property. Well,
at that time those who boughi
got a title from the state convey
ing all tide lands of the second
class belonging to the state. A
little later on the state claimed a
strip of further tide lands to-wit
between mean low water and ex
treme low water. A friend of
mine Judge ———— said it was
a dirty steal but advised buying
same so I paid for an extra title
to something I had already pur
chased, the whole amounting to
about $45. The taxes on same
started about two dollars grad
ually inerecasing to ten dollars
this year. When you squeeze a
lemon after the first squeeze you
get less juice, but when it's a
matter of squeezing the tax pay
ers the juice increases as the
squeezing process goes on.
However I concluded as far as
I am concerned the squeezing
process on tide lands had gone
far enough so have relinquished
the tide lands to the state. And
heve’s a tip for those who want
to hold them and object to the
preposterous tax let them go de
linquent and later on when they
are put up for auction buy them
back for very likely less than the
’prosvnl taxes,
Was the barn dauce at Ship
ley’s last Saturday a success? It
sure was, the barn was tastefully |
decorated, the floor with the aid|
of corn meal got as slick as a
ballroom, the music was fine, the
punch was & good color and
the flavor supplemented by cook
ies and ice eream. IMarold and
the Misses Shipley put everyone
at their ease and condueted the
affair in the manner of those who
know how. The guests were in
good spirit and there was not
a slow minute the whole evening. |
The Cove berry growers got |
down to business last week, |
adopted a label for the crates, |
and will market their ]H‘m]lu"'l
through Mr. Grossman pooling
the result. Mr. Swmock gave (hv}
members a talk very much to the
point, on the necessity of co-op
eration and sticking together and
illustrated his arguments by
some very forceful faets in his|
own and other expericnces, bel‘l
our slogan be “‘we'll stiek.”
