New League Will Elect President
In Lynden Friday Night; Adopt
Election of a president, treas
urer and hoard of control of the
Whatcom County Tax Limit
League, will be held at the Lyn
den High School Friday evening
at eight o'clock. The league was
formally organized Saturday at
Hawley's Hall hero.
Henry Shagren of Lynden was
elected vice-president of the org
anization, and Thomas Cole of j
Hellingham secretary. The fol
lowing constitution was adopted:
Article 1
Tho name of this organization
shall bo the "Whatcom County
Tax Limit Leagle."
Article ii
Declaration of Principles
\ We believe- that the cost of
government should be shared by
ail who enjoy its protection and
We believe it to be the duty
of every citizen or person to pay
his jusi share of the cost of gov
ernment according to its benefits, i
We favor a taxing system
Which will encourage the owner- !
ship of land for farms and homes,
ratlin- than for speculation; a
system which will encourage the
improvement of land rather than
penalize those who make it pro- j
ductive; a system which will en
courage investments iv develop
ing our many resources, rather
than investing in outside secur- j
The history of real property
in the State of Washington dur
ing recent years proves conclu
sively that it has suffered and is
suffering from excessive and mi
just burdens of taxation, which
have greatly depreciated it, val-|
ue, and in thousand* of instances i
resulted In its confiscation.
As a continuation Of the pres- j
ent policy or the sUite In regard
to taxation will inevitably result
in the confiscation of so much
property that a change will be
necessary in order that sufficient
revenue may be raised to support
and sustain government, we deem
It a duty both to ourselves and j
the state to bring about a change
before it is forced by confiscation
to the property now carrying the
bulk of the burden.
. We believe that a forty mill
r levy on a 50 per cent valuation \
h the limit of taxation which real
property can bear and retain its;
legitimate value. We therefore j
declare that the forty mill limit
of taxation on property for all
purposes shall be fixed by act of
legislature, and that such ad
dttlonal revenues as may be need
ed for the support of government
bo derived from other sources,
and that an amendment to con
stitution if necessary be made,
provided, however, that any sub
division of the state may by a
majority vote of its tax payers
make additional tax levies.
Article B—League Objects
Section 1. to demand such leg
islation as shall bring into effect
the principles expressed in these
Section 2, to advise property
owners of Whatcom county con
concerning our unjust taxing sys- ■
tern, and stimulate a desire to
force such legislation as shall
bring relief. —
Sec tion 3, to elect members to
the legislature who are unqual
ifiedly pledged to give diligent
support, to such legislation as
will give early relief to property j
and bring about the objects as
set forth in these declaration of;
Article 4—Politics
The league shall be non-parti- |
san, its efforts shall in no case
he used to further the interests
of any political party.
