Columbus, Ohio, May so, 1903.
Six years ago I bad a se ere attack ol
Inflammatory Kneumatistn. I was laid ut
In bed for six months, and the doctors 1
had did me no good. They changed med
icines every week and nothing they pre
scribed seemed to help me Finally I be
gan the use of S. S. S. My knee and elbow
joints were swollen terribly, and at one
time my joints were o swollen and pain
ful that 1 could not close them when
opened. I was so bad that I could not
move knee or foot. I was getting discour
aged, you may be sure, when I began S. S

PROHIBITION. AND. PROSPERITY.
Taxes, Rents and Proporty Values
For tho purpose of ascertaining what
effect, if any, prohibition has on tnxes
and municipal prosperity, inquiries
were roeently addressed to tho officers
of soino 1,200 towns having a popula
tion of 2,000 or moro and located in nil
parts of the United Statos. To these
inquiries 000 replies were received from
towns under license and -012 were from
lirolnbition or "ilrv" towns. Tho ro
piles show that tho nverngo rate on the
$100 valuation was in 1902:
In prohibition towns $2.43
In license towns 1.50
the nverngo rate, therefore, was 52
per cent higher in the prohibition than
In tho liconso towns.
It may bo admitted that tho rate of
tax Is not tho only fnetor to bo con
sidered and is not conclusive The
financial condition of the various towns
mid tho conditions of thoir public im
provements, etc., must bo taken iuto
H'count to nrrivo at 11 fair conclusion
ns to tho effects of llcenso or prohibit
tiou on tho public welfare.
Investigation showed that tho aver
ago per enpitu indebtedness of the pro
hibition towns exceeded by 44 per cent
that of tho liconso towns.
In getting nt tho condition of the
public improvements, etc., in tho vnri
huh towns difficulties' wore encountered
and no actual percentages could bo ob
tained. Tho overwhelming preponder
ance of testimony, however, was that
In respect to streets, public buildings,
schools and other public utilities, the
license towns wore In much better
shape than those under prohibition.
Prom these Investigations it appenrs
that taxes and public debt increase un
der prohibition, whilo public Improve
ments deteriorate Such a result
might reasonably bo anticipated. If n
ery considerable revenue is taken
away from n town through tho rofusal
to grant license, that revenue must be
either made good by additional tnxes

or else the community must administer
its affairs on a smaller tott.1 revenue.
As a matter of fact, a middle- course
seems to have been pursued. In order
to meet tLo loss of revenue formerly
derived from license, tho communities
adopting prohibition appear to have
raised a portion of the lost revenuo by
increased taxes and met the remaining
deficiency by reducing their expenses
such reduction in expenses resulting
in poorer streets, poorer public build
ings and fewer rcprjirs nnd various
Tho increase in taxes In prohibition
communities Is really greater than ap
pears from tho abovo figures because
the depression in rents and in values,
and, consequently In tho tax paying
ability of tho property,, should bo con
sidered. If all these elements aro given
their proper weight tho conclusion is
probably not far from correct that the
adoption of prohibition doubles the ac
tual tax rate.
Instances in which the tax rate has
been enormously increased by tho adop
tion of prohibition might be quoted nt
great length. In 53 towns in Kansas
and North Dakota the average rate was
In 1002 $3.50 on the $100 valuation.
Taxes in Atlanta, Ca., under prohibition
increased 40 per cent in one year and
tho city had to sell $00,000 of gns stock
which it owned to meet expenses.
