MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, JANUARY 7. IS!)!). The state legislature mot at noon Wednesday and organized by the elec tion of William G. Smith of Jefferson county, us speaker of tbe house. Mr. Smith is a Teller Silver Republican. Tbe Democratic, TelleriteS atod Popu lists divided the legislative offices. If the other items in Gov. Adams* address are uot based on more reliable data than are bis remarks concerning large game they are not worth much. Colorado's gold output for *OB was $26,723,364, as against $19,672,137 for *97. The silver output was $16,899,990 against $12,142,425 for *97. Uncle Sam should Introduce the Cubans to, the habit of making good resolutions, and then compel them to keep them. That war on the sugar trust is good as far as it goes, but we shall not hurrah until staying qualities have been demon strated. Numerous gentlemen in both branches of congress will hud tbe most disagreo able weather of the year on the 3rd of March—the date of their retirement, and divorce from the public payroll. 1 m * There is no dodging the fact that either Gen. Miles, or Gen. Eagan, com missionary general of the army, twisted the truth sadly in his testimony con cerning “embalmed” beef furnished the army. And we believe Miles told tbe truth. The United States government com mission reports that the Nicaragua canal can be built for $135,000,000 much less than it cost to hgLt the Spanish war. A Rare Party Opportunity. Secretary Alger has supplied what some Democrats have not hoped to see —an issue upon which the Democracy can appeal with confidence to tbe na tional judgment. By asking for over $106,000,000 for tbe support of the regu lar army in time of peaoe be has raised two questions that touch tbe heart and the pocket of every American etttsen who does not profit by legalised In justice and oppression. These ques tions are: Shall the United States be more heavily taxed for military purposes than any other country on earth? Shall thifi unheard-of burdeu of tax ation be carried almost exclusively by people of small means, while tbe wealth our armaments protect goes free? If we spend $166,000,000 a year for the army, $760,000,000 for pensions and $50,000,000 for the navy, we shall be pay ing $366,000,000 annually for military purposes. That is nearly twice as much as any power in Europe pays for the same objects. It is more than we paid in taxes for the entire support of the government as lately as last year. The amount Secretary Alger asks for tbe armv alone is more than Germany pays for her army and navy combined. We have been accustomed to commiserate the European peasant, crushed uuder the intolerable burdeu of standing armies, and now we are asked, with no necessity whatever, to subject ourselves to a burden twice as great. But the distribution of this burden of taxation is even worse than the load it self. Mr. Bockefeller, to take the most .conspicuous specimen of a class, has a fortune of over $800,000,090. His power to accumulate, possess and increase this fortune depends upon the protection of the government. Mr. Rockefeller's income is over $20,- 000,000 a year. That is equal to the combined incomes of 40.000 families, each living on annual earnings of S6OO. Under tbe Republican system of na tional taxation, which is based not on resources, but on personal consumption, Mr. Rockefeller’s Income, if divided among 40,000 families, would be taxed 40,000 times; concentrated in bis hands, it need be taxed only once. In other words, with 40.000 times tbe means of a workingman, Mr. Rockefeller is not obliged to pay more than a working mans taxes. In some respects be pays leas. He uses no beer or tobacco, and so escapes the taxation levied on those bumble luxuries. He does not play cards, and so does not pay for tbe revenue stamp on every (tmek. n« does not live in rented foetus, and so is not taxed for bis lease and his rent receipts, lie does not boiToer money on mortgage, subject to a mortgage stump tax. He has bis family fifyiician, and so does not buy taxed " proprietary medicines. lie drinks no tiiore tea than a sewing girl starving OP $4 a week, and if lie used a quality as fine as that sipped by the emperor of China he would still pay only* sewing girl's tax of 10 cents a pound. He uses no more taxed sugar than Is consumed by a day laborer, and wears little more taxed clothing. Practically all of Mr. Rockefeller's gigantic income is absolutely exempt from national taxation while every \ ar son of moderate means is taxed to tbe earth. IsXbat right? The Democracy docs not think so. It believes that incomes and not familv expenditures should be the measure of taxation. ** No extravagance in government. Necessary expenses to be met by fair methods of taxation. There is an issue ready made to the hand of tbe Democracy, and it is a win ning one.—j New York Journal. Late Literary News. To have the men who have demon strated their organizing ability by great business successes tell their secrets of organisation, is the object of the editor of The Cosmopolitan. That he is suc ceeding, is proved in the January issue by the article from Charles R. Flint, who is'regarded in New York as one of tbe three or four ablest organizers in America, lie is president of tbe Rub ber Trust and the head of the great mercantile house of Flint, Eddy A Co., which lias its ramifications in almost every port of the world. Mr. Fliut tells very openly what makes for success in the organization of business. His article tnjtf be read with interest by the Rockefellers, the Armours, and the Wanamalars as well as by the humblest dark eeekjeg to fathom the secret of bosiness.suDceu. In the name Uoe is an article, also in tbe Jaaqary Cosmopolitan, telling how Mr. Ptatt*organised and conducted the campaljpi for tbe election of Roopevelr. It is by a gentlemen who was activcE engaged at tbe Republican headquarters during the campaign, and who gives a vivid picture of tbe perfection to which political organisation has been carried in New York State by tbe most astute of managers. Tbe warv old Senator who has been a lifetime in politics and the vonngest political aspirant will alike find food for reflection in Mr. Blythe’s article. . . The American Monthly Review of; Reviews begids its new volume with a j strong issue and a largely increased . circulation.
