Wednesday afternoon and evening
of last week the district convention of
foreign missions held its sesslona in
the Methodist Chuich of this city.
The district comprises the New Ulna
parish and the congregations of the
Methodist faith in adjoining cities
and villages. Mrs G. F. Reineke

works of welcome upon the opening of
the convention and the regular routine
of work was then taken up. The
reports of the different parishes were
submitted, papers were read upon the
various phases of the activities of
women missionaries and appropriate
musical selections were rendered.
Miss Alice Brethorst, woman mis
sionary from Tzechow, West China
delivered two very ^interesting and
instructive lectures touching upon her
experiences as missionary in China, the
manners and customs of the Chinese
and also the ethical and moral condi
tions existing in China. In the eve
ning address Miss Brethorst called
especial attention to the fact that the
new Republic needs nothing more
keenly at the present time, than
schools for the education of the women
and girls, -and that .next in line as
necessaries were Christian institu
tions, such as hospitals and orphan
Misa Brethorst is here on a vaca
tion and utilizes her spare moments
in collecting funds for the erection of
a school in the interior of China
where there are hardly any traces sf
Christian civilization. She had with
her and displayed various garments
of Chinese wearing apparel.
The next meeting of the convention
will be held at Springfield in the
spring. Mrs: Henry Dirks of that
place was elected president to succeed
Mrs. Reineke.

With this issue the series of arti
cles upon-taxation which the tax com
mission ^has been publishing in this
journal for the past ten months will
be discontinued for the present. The
commission has 'been deeply impressed'
with the fact that notwithstanding
the widespread complaints "of the un
fairness and injustice of the existing
method 6t taxation, comparatively few
taxpayers have taken the trouble to
familiarize themselves with the. de
tails of those methods, and fewer still
have devoted much though or study
as to how those methods may be best
The articles have been prepared
and published in the hope that, brief
as they necessarily are, they would to
some extent familiarize the public
with the details of the existing sys
tem and thereby stimulate that dis
cussion and consideration which must
always precede any legislation- tend
ing to a reform or improvement of
the system. They have been' mainly
devoted to the general property tax
which comes nearest to and directly
affects all of the people, and which
is based upon the assessed valuation
of all property owned by each indi
The amount of taxes collected does
not depend upon the amount of the Better'n Woodrow, Teddy or Taft.
assessment of property, nor upon the
rate of taxation. Taxes are high
when and where the expenditure for
public purposes is large they are low
when such expenditure is small. As
sessment and rate are merely the
means of raising the money to be ex
pended,, and of determining how much
each individual shall contribute for
that purpose. But an equality of tax
ation as between the individual tax
payers depends entirely upon the
fairness of the assessment. The only
remedy for high taxation is a reduc
tion in public expenditures the reme
dy for unfair taxation is a fair and
equitable assessment.
The commission acknowledges its
indebtedness to the newspapers of the
state for their cordial and unselfish
assistance in the publication of these
articles. Although their publication'
has not been as productive of as much
criticism, suggestion, and discussion
as was expected the commission feels
that some public good has been ac
complished. Whatever of good there
may be, it is largely to the press of
the state that the credit is due. With
out the least compensation and with
some inconvenience to themselves
these newspapers have given their
space liberally to the work of enlight
ening their readers upon the perplex
ing and little understood system of
taxation in Minnesota.
The commission will publish the en
tire series in pamphlet form for free
general circulation, and will be pleased
to distribute them to those who by
letter or in person may so request.
