NORTH PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
WILSON TOUT, Editor nnd L'nMlsher.
Entered nt Uio North Platte, Nebraska
Postofflco as Second Class Mutter.
SimSnitlPTION PRICE i
One Year, in ndvnncc $2.00
FRIDAY, JULY 22d, 1921.
Freight on a ton of luty from North
riatto to Omnlia Is now $5.80 nnd from
North Platte to Donvor It is $0.30 n
ton. That Is why local men cannot
pay anything for hay. There Is a
gocjl market In tho oast for good
pralrla hay but the frolght eats up tho
big ond of tho price. Practically no
hay Is bolng Bhlppod out of hero for
Omaha or further cast.
In our last Issue wo announced the
birth of n baby, girl to Mr. and Mrs.
A. L. Relchstoln. The announcement
should havo read: A baby girl was
born to Mr. and Mrs. Edllo Rolchstoln
Monday. It must bo a flno girl for A.
Ik did not tako offonso nt bolng culled
tho father Instead of tho grandfather.
Ho wanted tho fficts to bo rlght',
howovor, and so callcjl our attention
to tho o'rror.
One of tho most Interesting facts in
tho abstract of nssossmont which was
issued yesterday by County Clerk Al
len lias to do with tho automobllo tax
question. Tho total numbor ot auto
mobiles nssossed this year in Lincoln
County is 2,802. Tho numbor ot auto
licenses paid for In the offlco of Coun
ty Treasurer Soudor on Monday ot
this week was 3704. This means that
thoro nro 802 automobiles in Lincoln
County on which, a Hconso has been
paid but which wore not turncll In to
tho tax assessor. Mr. Sotider sayo
thoro aro a thousand automobiles for
which no Hconso has yet boon paid.
Ho oxpects to got tho Hconso yet this
yoar on most ot thorn. Add, this
thousand to tho eight hundred which
havo ovadod assessment anl you havo
1800 nutomobilOB in Lincoln County
upon which no tax will bo paid this
yoar, Thos'o aro largely estimated
numborn. and tlioy are probably not
corroct ajthough thoy may bo undor
tho facts, Tho point is that If thoro
is ono nutomobllo in tills County up
on which no tax Is belHg paid, tho
hundreds ot auto ownors who aro pay
ing tho tax on tholr cat's havo a right
to know who Is gotting out of paying
Ills Just sharo, Wo said In a rccont is
buo that taxation Is tho biggest prob
lom now boforo tho American people
Wo cannot do nnythlng about tho nn
ttonnl problems of taxation such an
tho tariff, tho Incomo tax, etc. Thoy
aro taken enro ot by congross. But
oach nt us can do something about
tho local problems of taxation and It
Is worth our timo to study how to
remedy oxistlng ovlls. Tho avorago
value of tho cars Hstod is Just about
$300. If olghtoon hundrod cars could
bo added to tho tax list It would glvo
ovor half a million lollars moro to
tho totnl upon which tuxes nro to bo
paid, Publication of tho nnmos ofHux
payors, with tho amount of assessed
proporty owned by onch has been sug
gested ns the host way by which tho
tax payor and tho tax shlrkor could
bo known. It Is worth consideration.
