The Mis souri Equitable Taxation League which Is back of the bill, has had prepared and is publishing broad cast the articles we are reproduc ing herewith, but In order to show whoro they make h'steadine- state ments wo make our comments with each article. The II at artl le Is as follows: There are two tblncs. It Is said. from which no man can escape: death and taxes, and there sestns to b an equal dislike for both. The payment ot taxes Is looked upon by people generally as an extortion exacted from there by a power beyond them. Spsak to anyone about taxes, whether a business man, farmer or working- man, asd he will at once tell you that ha la paying more taxes tban he should. It would bo difficult to find ona In tho entire Stato of Missouri who does not In soma way condemn the present process of raising the pub lic rerenue. Eren tha largo corpora Hons that defend tho present system, are continually condemning it. Tnoy condemn It by their persistent ef forts to erade the payment of a part or all of the taxes levied against them. But there Is a difference In the tnotiro of the corporation and the mass ot tha people for condemnation of tho present system. The motive of the corporation la purely selfish, while with the great mass ot people there Is aa Instinctive feeling ttxU taxes are unjustly levied; that some how, In some way, thoy are made to pay mors than their share. To tho eod that assessment of taxes be made mors Just, the people, not oaly of the State of' Missouri, but svery Btsts In the Union, are con tinually demanding changes In our tax lawa aad It would be difficult to And the records ot any. leglalstlvs session ot say State In which It does aot appear that the tax laws bars bsen so aaandsd, and yet, after con tlnusd ef art ot over aeeataj7 we crease consumption aaa taereoy car tails the production and dlstrlbatloa ef goods. Thla la admitted In mala-' tatnlng a high tax on liquor, the ob ject of this tax being Jo discourage she coBsumptloa sflliuor. Do wa want to discourage the consunstlem of shoes, clothing, books, food, etct u aot, why should we, who admit that a tax on prodacta discourages coh sumption, maintain a system of taxa tlon that we know produces thla result?

It Is :lmprae-tlesL- It U" maatfwrtly uajast aad Bkaald as absttssvsil, tt ,fer as): ether money and the money of. the rich ahould be taxed; that a man might convert all ot hla property Into money and thereby escape taxation. We forget that the principal object ot taxation Is to raise revenue aad not to punish men In proportion to the wealth they possess. Bui aslds from that, why should we tax money? Money Is aa neccaiary to thoie who produco or dlatribute goods as ma chinery or raw material. Men In all walks of life are continually clamor ing for cheap money, for a lower rate of Interest. If we tax money, the tax must be added to the price we must pay for tho use ot money. Just aa a tax on goods Is addud to the price we pay for cooda. The ruling rata of Internet In .Missouri Is six per cent. If we Increased the tax ou money (whether we were able to collect It or not) two per cont, tho rato of In terest would be raised to eight per cent, and If the state prohibited the collection of eight per cu. money would leave the stato. If on the other hand money waa untaxed the rate ot Interest In Missouri would de crease proportionately. Would not that be a good thing for all the people of Missouri? With cheaper money there would bo greater Investment la Industry ot all kinds, a consequent Increase In the employment of labor aad a greater domamlJor tho products of tho farmer and 'manufacturer. But It we abolish personal property taxation bow will we raise revsaua for public expense? The tax amendments to be voted upon In Missouri on November 4th provide the way. They call for tha abolition of all taxes on persosal property and the exemption ot im provements to the amount of 13,000 la 1914, and beginning with 1914 ths exemption ot twentvt.ve per cent of the value of all Improvements every two years until Improvements are en tirely exempt, leavlog but two things upon which taxes may be lmpoaed land and fraseaes values. So long us" we nialutalu a general property tax great Inequality la as sessments will occur In spite of any laws that may .be eaacted But It we reduce the collection ot taxes to land and franchise values these Inequalities wilt disappear. The powers mat be must collect the proper tax from both corporate privileges and land values. Now the principal ownera of land valuea In MUsourl are not farmers or smaJI horns owners, but the ownera of valuable sites In centers ot cities. Such sites la St. Louis are valued at over 14,000,000 per aero. There sre 83 couutles In Missouri lu which the total value of all farms In the county doea not exceed thla sum. Ths prin cipal ownera ot land values are Influ ential business men aad these men. with or without the co-operation of small owners, would se to It that (here waa no Inequality of assess ment. If these amendments are adopted ths Question ot taxation would bs sot tied in Missouri for ail time. All would then contribute to public revenues la proportion to the ptlvllegas they1 en joyed. The man who owned no land would pay his tax in the rent he paid, the landlord paying his tax out of rent money received. The Answer Meat ot tho stitcmenta In the first half of tho article ara self evident, but because there are dis honest men is no excuse for abol ishing tho present system. What should be done is to provide laws punishing tax dodgers severely. The argument that the consumer pays the tax anywiy Is false la so tar that If he paya It now, he will later also, as the Uw is not to be general but simply for Missouri So wh le the farmers wqu'd pay the extra tax they would re ceive no reduction on purchases as stated.
