The Appellate Court Bill Meets With Partisan Opposition in tha House, From Which It May Recover. When Senator Parker, the matter-ot- fact, well baked eolon from Johnson county, introduced a bill providing for the enfranchisement of certain women named therein, some of his fellow senators looked pityingly at Mr. Parker while others sneaked out as if they thought the state house was going to fall down. They wondered what was the matter with Parker. But the clca est observer failed to notice any recent ohange in his appearance. Ha waa cot only in hia right mind but he waa in earnest. lie had simply gone in league with the woxen to test the constitution and see if it would permit them to vote when a statute said they might.

Tiio Advooato. FES. 29 THE SINGLE-TAX. la. Able Cliampion Presents Els Side of the Case. (Continued.) BY W. H. T. WAKEFIELD. The educated and trained economist would doubtless say that we have taken many words to cover the ground we have gone over, but I think the av erage reader will be the better for hav ing followed even our repetitions and reiterations, if it gives him clearer views of the fundamental basis of political justice. I think, however, the time has ar rived for summing up and giving the case to the jury. We seem to differ now only as to the respective merits of our plans of eliminating the admitted evils of landlordism and unequal or unjust taxation. You claim that your plan of state ownership of all lands, distributed to first applicants, with title to permanent and untaxed posses sions through occupation or use, solves the land question, and that charging a tax or profit for use of public utilities is a just method of raising revenues. You claim that your plan aboli...

Tlie Advooata English Horse Sense. Editor Advocate: Senator Wol cott, in a speech in opposition to in dorsing the president's special mes sage, quotes a cablegram from Lon don as follows: " 'The failure to punish the criminal mismanagement of railroad and other great corporations in America is hav ing a disastrous effact upon the Eng lish view of the American sense of honor. There can be no revival of English interest in this class of in vestments until at least some measure is adopted in the United States for the punishment of railway thieves. An Englishman sees public conscience practically indifferent to the matter, and naturally concludes that the lack of commercial honor has become a na tional characteristic. " 'The exposures of corruption in the New York city administration which have been fully exploited by the Eng lish press have convinced the people of this country that American politics are hopelessly rotten. The average Eng lishman makes no distinction between New York an...

To-day it supported the entire currency fabric, 500 million of outstanding legal tenders and treasury notes, 500 million dollars of over-valued silver and all the national bank notes outstanding. "You admit," interrupted Mr. Ding ley of Maine, "such 111 million dollars of gold have been purchased to main tain a gold reserve. How did the treas ury obtain the money to meat the defi ciency in the revenues of 109 million dollars?" 'Still harping on my daajhter," re plied Mr. Wilson, with a wave of his hand, but Mr. Dingley insisted upon an answer to hia question and Mr. Wilson replied that as be had stated on a former occasion, it was partly tru by the oper ations of the endles3 chain process by which gold was drained from the treas ury some of the money obtained from the sale of bond3 had ...

0 Ebo Advooata FZ3.20 TBI SINGLE TAX. NO. IX. Friend Wakefield: Iq your sum ming up of the discussion upon this subject, there are several point3l wish to notice. Yon hold in this summary that "no tax should be levied upon labor, cither directly or indirectly, through its products or by charge above cost for use of public' utilities," and yet I have shown and you have admitted that labor pays all .taxes and must pay them no matter under what sys tem they may be levied. In your very first article you say upon this subject : Tour contention that the user of land must pay the taxes on it out of the profits of its use, will be true under the single-tax plan, as it is now, but the differ ence lies in the f aot that he now pays a double tax one to tha landlord and one to the state. JTerois a plain, unequivocal ad mission that labor not only does pay all taxes now but would do so under the single-tax, the only difference claimed being that under the single tax it would pay but one tax, whe...

Tour plan would trans far this half-million annual fund from the sohcola to the rich owners of the buildings, and compel the parents of schoolchildren to raise this sum by paying higher postage fares and freights, water and gaa rates, street oar fares, eta. I could see soma excuse for such a statement from a republican or dam ocrat, for I could attribute it to ig norance; but this cannot be yonr ex case. Let ns examine it a little. According to your own admission that all rents and taxes enter into the cost of production and distribu tion, these very rents are now paid by the people who consume the goods manufactured or sold upon the lots; and probably the people who receive the benefits of the schools supported by this fund are the very psople who first pay the money to the occupants of the lots in the way of added cost of goods. If the occupants of the lots were re leased from this rent it would be eliminated from the present cost of production and di...

D Whoever started the report that Gov ernor Morrill waa going to reoognize the young crowd instead of the barnacles, had evidently forgotten to consult with Morrill about it. The annual state encampment of the O. A. R. will be held in Liwrence the h3t three days of this month, and the people of that town are preparing to take care cf 1,200 people. If the people of Ft.

Tha present session of the legislature will probable end with this week, although the statesmen may find it nec essary, in order to equara themselves with their oonstituente, to remain over and work a little longer, without pay, for the constitution only allows pay for a fifty days session. The fifty days have ex pired and some of the members are look ing backward and wondering where the time of the session went. On the theory that the less changing of laws and mak ing of new ones the better for the state, a representative of the people has no trouble easing his conscience and making himself believe he would better go home.

ASSESSMENT AND TAXATION. Some Practical Lieht tlpm that All-Import-ant Subject. BY THOMAS LAMAY. There are, no doubt, many changes which could be made in the assessment and taxation laws of the state to the general benefit. Such laws regarding railroads, banks, monies, credits, real estate, improvements, etc., might be assessed so as to shift somewhat the burdens of taxation so that they would bear more justly and fairly than they do at present. So far as the writer knows, there is no movement being made to especially change assessment upon any one of the kinds of property mentioned, but there is a change pro posed in assessment that appears to be received with considerable favor. It is the proposition to assess all property at full value. County oflicials in meetings of such bodies have favored it. Railroad inter ests have expressed approval of it, and business men, bankers, merchants, edi tors, and many others from all callings in life advocate it. Measures to secure assessment at...
