Assessor Objections to the County Bill. There are several objections urged against the county assessor bill which deserve careful consideration. One is assessor being a resi- NewDiijiutnoBou dent of the town is presumably fa miliar with the taxable property therein and therefore could assess it better than a non-resident. This ob jection, however, is overcome by the fact that the proposed county assessor is required by law to devote all of his time the year round to the duties of his office, and to acquiring the same information not only in that town but in all the towns of the county. This will enable him, by comparing one town with the others, to make the county assessment more even and uni form so that in a short time he would become more familiar with the prop erty in each town than the local as sessor could possibly be. Giving to this objection all the force claimed for it,'the fact remains that the coun ty assessor will be much better equipped for the valuation of the prop erty in each town than the local as sessor can be, while the influences and conditions which inevitably em-, barrass the local assessor, warp his judgment, and lead to favoritism and unfairness cannot to any appreciable extent affect the county assessor. Moreover, the county assessor will be under the supervision of the state tax commission, a body having the power to correct his errors, and in case of willful misfeasance to remove him from office with the consent of the governor of the state and after a fair hearing. Such supervision will strengthen him in the performance of his duties, and he will be more inde pendent of local influences and in a better position to make a fair and uniform assessment. Another objection to the proposed bill is that it interferes with the prin ciple of home rule in the town. Whatever merit there may be in this S S a S in objection loses its force by the+fact down, may be, of the kidney that under the proposed bill the town tissues.

Try them* se ssor and protect the taxpayers of the town from any unfair assessment. thus preserving intact the home rule I'in urn i« rrniMii principle. It Is also believed tha,t the existence of a county asaesaor will act as a stimulant to these boards to do their work with greater care and thoroughness. Another objection to the bill ,1s that it creates a new office and will' result in increased expense to the county. It is true that it creates some 86 new offices, and also that It abolishes some 2,300 of existing offices. Whether it will result in Increased expense to the counties Is problematical. In counties It may do so, and in others it may not. In any event the increase, if it results at all, will not be very large. If the town assessors were being paid a fair compensation at the present time it is believed that the county assessor would not cost any more than the local assessors would cost. At all events the benefits which would' result from a fairer and more uniform assessment would far out weigh the increased cost thereof, if such there should be. In order that taxation may be fair as between the individual taxpayers of the state it is essential that the assessments of their property should be relatively equal. If the assess ments are unfair, the taxes based up on such assessments are inevitably unequal. You cannot erect a substan tial and permanent superstructure upon a "wobbly" foundation. While it is not claimed that the county assessorship system would in all cases produce an absolutely per fect assessment, it is believed that it would greatly tend to that desirable result. It certainly is an attempt to better present conditions, and while in this state it may be something of an experiment, we must remember that all progress must in the begin ning be experimental—that no one can move forward if he doggedly in sists upon remaining immovable The'Inheritaoce Tax. ID addition to the general property tax. the gr89 earnings tax, th mort gage registry tax, HDd tbe three mill tax on raonpy and credits, wHch have been already covered in these arti cles, the state imposes certain other special taxes deserving of mention, such as the inheritance tax, the ton nage tax on vessels plying on inter national waters, the bushel tax on grain, and the liquor license tax. The most important of these is the inheritance tax. Although not in gen eral use in this country until com paratively recent times the inheri tance tax is not a new invention. It was employed by the Romans as a part of their fiscal system before the dawn of the Christian era and there is evidence that the Egyptians made use of it even earlier than the Ro-south mans. In many European countries it has been in successful operation for centuries. From an economic standpoint no tax has more to commend it and none is easier to defend. As has been well said: "This method of increasing the public revenue is wise, simple and effective—wise because it does not touch private property during the life of the owner and thus places no burden upon business activity simple because the tax is easily ascertained and collected while estates are being administered in the probate court ef fective because by the application of progressive rates, it adds no burden to the poor but permits those who have much to contribute to the gov ernment somewhat in proportion to their ability to pay. It invades no natural rights. It violates no maxim of the law. It overleaps no consti tutional barriers: It is neither-revolu tionary nor socialistic, but is, on the contrary, a measure of practical wis dom and social justice, and has been truly styled an *instituti6n of democ racy.' tures have stamped the inheritance tax with their approval. The first in heritance tax law, enacted in 1885.defeats was declared unconstitutional by the supreme court, as were similar laws passed in 1897, 1901 and 1902. The fifth attempt of the legislature to tax inheritances, Chapter 288, Laws of 1905, was successful being sustained by the supreme court in a test case. The present law imposes a tax up on inheritances, devises, bequests, legacies, and gifts of every kind. It is in fact a tax on the right to receive property, or any interest therein nr income therefrom in trust or other wise. Liberal exemptions from the tax are allowed to husband or wife or children of the decedent, the amount under the present law being $10,000. Parents receive an exemption of $3,000, and brothers and .sisters. $1,000. Certain smaller exemptions are allowed more distant relatives. The rate is imposed on the amount in excess of the exemption and is a graduated one, increasing as the amount or value of the bequest in creases. For instance, in the case of a wife or child, if the value of the property exceeds ten thousand but does not exceed fifteen thousand dol lars, a tax of one per cent would be imposed on the amount in excess of the exemption. Upon all in excess of fifteen thousand and under thirt*- thousand the rate is one and one-half per cent, from thirty to fifty thousand dollars two per cent on sums over fifty thousand dollars two and one-after half per cent, and on all sums over one hundred thousand dollars the rate is three per cent. In the case of a husband, or parents of the decedent, the rate starts at one and one-half per cent and increas es to four and one-half per cent for brothers and sisters and certain rela tives the rate begins at three per cent 'and increases to nine per cent, for certain other relatives it begins at four per cent and increases to twelve ter cent, and for strangers it ranges •Vom five to fifteen per cent. In the earlier years of the (ax on inheritances the entire revenue re ceived from this source was retained by the state. Under an amendment dopted in 1911 the county in which he decedent resided now receives ten -er cent of the tax. The revenue received from this TOurce for the fiscal year ending July 31, 1912 amounted to $678,513. The total receipts since the eaactment.of the Uw to date ^xcee*s $W80.000. T^y $*M 'i )*n MAIN TURKISH. ARMY ROUTED Allied Forces Reported to Have Overwhelmingly Defeated Sultan's Troops. FHREE-DAY BATTLE FOUGHT Wrianople Is Completely Sur and Its Fall Seems heritable. •ofla. Bulgaria, Nov. 1.—The Bul garian army has completely routed the main Turkish army under Nazim Pasha. Nearly 200,000 Turks fled in disorder, leaving many killed and wounded on the field. The battle, whicb is regarded as the most important engagement since tbe beginning of the war, lasted three entire days. It extended along the line from Lule Burgas eastward to •Serai. The Turkish front was over chirty-one miles long. The Ottoman troops retreated to Tchorlu, about twenty-one miles to the south of the positions from which they were driven by the Bulgarians. Adrianople, the ancient capital, is now completely surrounded by the Bulgarian forces, and its fall is re garded as certain. Less than twenty four hours ago Nazim Pasha tele graphed to Constantinople that the chances for driving the Bulgarians out of their positions were excellent and he added that he was satisfied with the prospect for a Turkish vic tory ir the battle whicb was then raging. His intention was to drive the Bul bars back to the north, east and west of the beleaguered city, but with his defeat and.the demoralization of his army the city is now invested on the also, with no chance for being relieved. Adrianople Seems Doomed. Already holding the railroad run* ning south from Adrianople the way to Constantinople is now open to the Bulgarians, who, it is believed, will endeavor to strike another crushing blow before the Turks have time to collect and reorganize the remnants of the vast army that has been shat tered in the three-day fight to the south of Adrianople.. The Servian troops are extending the area of territory conquered by them in Macedonia. It is reported that they have crossed the mountains and taken the town of Prisrend, with a large quantity of Turkish war mate rial. They are said also to have taken Diakovo, still further to the west. The Greeks, too, appear to be spread ing their lines. They have occupied Srcvena, on the western road lead ing to Monastir. Grave fears are expressed in regard to the Christian populations of Con stantinople, Saloniki and other Turk ish ports, where the news of Turkish is being circulated in spite of the censorship and official denials. Great Britain already has ordered a warship to proceed to Saloniki for the protection of British lives and prop erty there and the action of tbe otber powers in the matter is under con sideration. BODIES FOR BREASTWORKS Six Thousand Turks Killed in Battle of Kumanova. London, Oct. 31.—Terrible details are reaching Belgrade, according to the Standard's correspondent there, of the retreat of the Turks from Ku manova. They tried to stop the Ser vian advance by making breastworks of dead bodies. Six thousand corpses were found on the road from Kuma nova to Uskup and six truck loads of petroleum had to be brought from the rear for the purpose of burning the dead.
