An editorial artiole in a reoent iBsue
of the Ohioago Times mentions the faot
that there is no state within the United
property. The Times suggests that
some of the new statee created from the
territories enter the union under consti
tutions which provide public revenue
under some other system than the taxa
tion of property, es eommonly practiced.
Suoh an innovation upon the oustoms of
the sisterhood of the republio oould cer
tainly populerize the state adopting the
idea. People do not like to pay taxes
and would flook in large numbers to a
a new western state operated tinder a
prohibition against the taxation of prop
erty. The Dakota boojp could be ever
lastingly prolonged under such an ar
rangement. Bui the projeot oommends
itseli in many ways aside from its ad
vertising features. Taxation of prop
erty, usually heavy in the west, impedes
improvement, for under the system in
vogue the more a property owner im
proves the heavier his tax burden is
made. This is probably the most prom
inent evil arising from the popular
method of scouring a public revenue
and that it servas to retard development
need not be said.
That a state oan exist without levying
tribute upon the property of its residents
is demonstrated in the experienoe of the
nation, whioh finds itself in possession
of a greater revenue than it naede for
ourrent expenses without imposing a
tax upon the property of its people.
England furnishes another example of
the ability of a great govemment-to ex
ist and thrive through taxation process
which oolleots no dues from land or per'
Borne of the statee are almost sustain
ed from a percentage oi' the earnings of
their railroads. The email balance
needed to pay expenses oould be raised
by a simple system of internal revenue
and property oould go untaxed for state
support. The same principle could bo
applied to oountiee aad oommunities,
and property thoreby relieved of bur
dens whioh tend to retard its develop
ment. The Ubioago Times says:
Should anew state adopt a constitu
tion prohibiting the taxation of property,
it woald soon beoome the riobest part of
the union. The tax burdened citizens
of every state and territory would flock
to it. Before ten years bad passed, every
state would see the neoessity of abolish
ing taxes on property. Let some ter
ritory try the experiment.
What do the wise men of the expeotant
•totes of Dakota think of this suggestion
A letter from Senator Farwell ia given
in this issue, aooompanied by some re
marks by General Campbell. Senator
the situation tersely in
the concluding sentenoe of his letter.
There is no present hope of statehood
for Dakota or for the two Dakotas. The
issne must first be made a national issue.
Tbc oiu siruggle for the rights of Kan
sas and Nebraska must be repeated and
the democratic majority must be abso
lutely foroed to yield before there can
be any hope for the establishment of
statehood sovereignty upon the soil
of the Dakotas. General Campbell
outlines a plan throngh which Da
kota may take the initiatiye in the
struggle, and Dakota must lead if it ex
peots the people of the states to take
up its oanse. in earnest. Thus far we
have done nothing in the right direotion.
We hare asked, petitioned, implored—
have presented our case bristling all
over with faGts and arguments whioh
establish our right to local self govern
ment. What does the demooratio ma
jority in oongress care for all this so long
as a recognition of the right we invoke
involves a possible destruction of that
majority? Dakota's grievances are a
very small incident to them their
grand oonspiraoy for the perpetuation
of their power. The dominant element
of democracy has saorifioed many hun
dred thousand lines in an effort to main'
tain party prestige when it was in the
vrrong. It has enoouraged and partici
pated in outrages upon the residents of
territories in the denial of rights whioh
threatened its supremaoy. There is now
no reason to suppose that the demoora.
tic party ean be reached through appeals
to its heart or its oon^oienoe or its sense
of justice. With these sentiments it has
no affiliation. Its ons object is power to
itself. Dakota's struggle should there
fore be transferred, as an inftia
tory move, from oongress to its
own legislature and the legislative oam
paign of 1888 should be made upon
that issue. Oar legislators oan do
much to forward the interests of Dakota
and plaoe the Dakota matter in shape to
be made a national issue by making
ample provision for the inauguration of
statehood governments for north and
south Dakota. Then let the two sections
proceed as two states and the issue will
be fairly sprung. The nation must par
tioipate in the oontest to compel oon
gress to reoognfee theBe states.
1HE DAKOTA SITUATION.
A Statement From Senator Farwell
—SI* Present ttepefor Dakota'* Ad
United States senate, Washington, D.
0.,Feb. 1,1888—E. M. Thomas, Eiq.
Huron, Dak.: My Dear Sir—1 am in
reoeipt of yeur letter of reoent date re
lating to the division and admission oi
Dakota. In response thereto, I am o(
the opinion that as the electoral vote of
Dakota would be a factor in the presi
dential elections, the democratic house
of representative* will pass no' bill that
will admit Dakota as one state, maab
less to divide and admit as two. The
policies the democratic party are formed
and dominated by the men of the sonth
they are the body and brains of the party
and, with them in the foreground, with
the record they have made in getting ln
to power in this government on fraudu
lent titles, by enppressiBg the vote and
manipulating the ballot box, oould you
or any other Dakotaian believe for
moment that they would have any
scruples in denying to republican Dak
ota admission as a state so long as the
possibility of the electoral vote menaoed
their oontinuance in power? What
they want is to oontrol, aad, as pohtioal
history, tor twenty-five years past shpws
the faot that they are willing to marah
through corruption and scatter the
blood of the innocent for what they
have aeoured, shows that they would
not hesitate to throttle this little affair.
Itis my opinion that Dakota will
never be admitted until the good people
of the northern states, in the dominant
party, are aroused to a sense of the faot
that the southern end of their party
are outraging the rights of your people,
as they did in the Kansas and Nebraska
troubles, simply to keep the power of
government in their own hands. And
until the issue is squarely made upon
the floor of the house and charged upon
them, by your press, eto.. that the first
demoaratie administration is found re
enacting the old Kansas taotioe of ton
ing in, or keeping out, whioh ever would
oontinue power, and whioh led to the
war of the rebellion, you oan have no
hopee I fear.
I will lend the plan of division and
admission my aid, in the senate,
Very Truly Tours,
OIXEBAII OAHFBBLL COMAUTS.
To the Press & Dakotaian: The en
dosed letter of Senstor Farwell is of
extreme importance to the people. of
Dakota. It expresses the situation ex
aotly. Dakota has no hopes until the
people or the ooantry are aroijised to th
situation. That is as true as gospel
squally true ia the proposition, whioh
follows from it. That the northern peo
ple will not take up the cause of Dakota
until the people or Dakota take up their
own cause, a* did the people of Kansas
and make an issue, whioh the peoplo of
or the oountry oan see.
It time that oar people look this
question eqa&re iu the faoe.
If they suffer the ae*t»tu?uaer to peeai
by, as they did the one before last, with
out an organised movcuiei t, to eleot a
territorial legislature, whioh will have the
manhood and independence and intelli
gence to take the steps necessary to
frame suoh an issue, they will not have
another chance tor three more years.
The words of Senator Farwell are
grave, weighty and suggestive.
They are notices to every business in
terest of Yankton, Sioux FallB, Huron,
Water town. Mitobell, Pierre and of all
north aiid south Dakota, that, whatever
steps are neoeBsary to the way of state
government to relieve their burdens and
disabilities, and to add to their growth,
they must prepare to take themselves, aa
Kansas did. In a word, whatever is to
be done in the next three years for
statehood by the Dakotas, must be done
in the next three months.
