J. Parker, Republican oaaiidat for Governor, had the following communication in Sunday' Observer: T i the Eui'or of The Observer: I nutici in lais i..or.ii.s's tuition' o! utu paper an article by 0,ir iiu':e i-h correspondent giving an in-i-.v.tw wilh Judge Pell, of the State ..:x eo:rmiisoii.

However. ,'ass over the language used by Judg 11 as beins attributed to his inlirm- ty and Fliull come to the point of his coiiiiiaint. 'i in- Htuteinent made ill ill v Lar- th;".e speech to which he has taken exctpiiun is the statement that the rr.ilroads ill pay loss tax because oi the revaluation act. My full state ment at, Carthage which was i.eces saiily abbreviated in the report was as follows: the tax rate will be lowered un der fhe revaluation act. The holder ol persoiial properly, such as bunds and solvent credits, will thereupon pa leis tax. The railroads will pay le.--s. I have not heard that t hen valuation has been raised by the tax comuiisison. The Southern railwaj lines tire now ar-sossed at approxi-i-ielv UXtni(l ner mile. I am re- linhlv liifiiriued tliat a member of the 'ax commission slated that it was pro posed to Increase tins to tu,uuv per mile, bin 1 am also iniormeu nun inereirte tins not been made. If ii hn heen miiili' I have never heard of it and if it had been made I think i nnl. I hn v lieu id of it. liut. even If the Southern railways lines are j.sso'sed at I6U.0O0 per mile this I an increase of only l i per cent, and if the tax into is reduced to one third of what it now is. the Southern railway will pay on Its lines only about one-hair the tax It Is now pay litir l.'KM mill i lie holder of solvent credits paying less,-the owner of real estate will necessarily pay more. For the foregoing statement I nave high democratic authority. In his iii!iiphlet unon the revaluation act Vr. J. W.

What the :ate and the coun'ies loe to the railroads they will gain from the farmers! "It will be freely admitted that pos sibly the railwa.M' mile of road may be valued higher; but who will say that it will be valued five times high er or even two times lusher?" This statement and avgiiiufiit by Mc. Bailey has never eeu denied or answered. Before Judge Pell pro ceeds with further epithets I i-uffest that he answer this argument ol Mr. Dailev which has Iwen circula'ed broadcast over the state.

But there is no use having any doubt about the matter. Judge Pell has tne record of the tax commission before him. Let him tell at what value per mile the lines of the South ern railroad stood assessed in the year 1919? At what are they assess "d now? Let him give the same In I'onnaiion to the Seaboard Air Liii. 'ho NiirfnU t Southern, and the At lantic Const line. If he c,-n show that the tax eom tnlrsion hrs raised the valuation of those properties a. i inch as their tax hy vill he lowered tinder the re valuation net, now I: tin lime for hint o do it. I believe that the foregoing argu ment of Mr. Pailey is sound and I will continue lo think so until Judae l7l or some one else produces the figures lo refute it. which they have not been able to do it. And I ask Judge Pell that he answer this ques tion: Will not the railroads pay toss tax on their railway mileage because of the revaluation act. even if I lie valuation of their mileage if raised? If, not, why not? The t nil Ii is that in my speech at Carthage 1 bared certain truths which are very unpleasant for Judge Pell to lace. Hence his undignified and unct'lled for assault on tne.
