I hereby announce myself as a candi
date for the republican nomination for
Register of Deeds of Cass county, sub
ject to the pleasure of the voters at
the coming primaries. In asking for
this nomination I desire to call atten
tion to the fact that my services in the
office of county strveyor, while being
largely of a "thank yoi" nature, the
remuneration being insufficient fer the
support of a family, have eminently
fitted me for the duties of the office to
which I aspire, and in case I should re
ceive the nomination I shall use my
lest endeavors to be elected, and will
give to the office my best attention.

THE INCOME TAX
It will be interesting to note the
treatment given Pres. Taft's income
tax and corporation dividend tax recom
mendations by Congress. The Presi
dent has had little to say to the legisla
tive department Bince he sent his form
al message at the opening of the extra
session. He has found it desirable,
however, to take a hand in these two
revenue measures, which he wishes em
bodied in the Tariff Bill, one of which
will have an important bearing on the

Mr. Taf t's income tax plan will meet
with public approval, even if it does not
secure the sanction of Congress. The
assumption that a direct act imposing
such a tax would meet the approval of
the Supreme Court, which formerly held
such a law to be unconstitutional, is, to
say the least, a doubtful assumption. In
the event of the enactment of such a
law, the collection of taxes binder it
probably would be delayed until the
court's decision would have been ren
dered. Since delay must be involved in
any event, the President's plan to sub
mit a constitutional amendment to make
such an ac unquestionable would seem
to be preferable. Such an amendment
would fix the statutes of the income

companies' total was 81,543,000. The
first year of our five, however, very
little digging was attempted, and in
the two following years the plant was
still being organized and the staff train
ed. For those three years our total ex
cavation was less than 10,000,000 yards,
But the fourth year the figure jumped
to 25,002,611 yards and the fifth to 38,
542,650. This last rate can be main
tained, and it will be possible to com
plete the necessary excavation in three
years more. It is not the excavation,
however, but the building of dams and
locks, on which the final opening of the
canal must deyend.

in the work we have done, in the
engineers we have found available and
in the executive initiative of Roosevelt
and Taft by which the proper talents
have been discovered and put to work.

SENATOR BROWN WINS.
A Washington, dispatch says:
"Senator Brown is the one insurgent
who has won a practical victory in his
strumrlc to tret a decrease in tariff
schedules. He had the pleasure today
of seeing both of his amendments to
the Aldrich bill adopted, putting wood
pulp on the free list, and knocking out
the retaliatory and countervailing du
ties which were proposed by the com
mittee as a neat little plan for doubling
the duty on both paper and pulp after
congress has adjourned and gone home.
Senator Brown's amendments give the
newspapers all they have been asking,
with one exception. The duty on print
paper is still $1 per toft, instead of $2
per ton, as fixed by the house and de
manded by John Norris, who has rep
resented the publishers' asssciation
here for many months. Mr. Norris ap
peared radiantly happy today af ler the
Brown amendments had been adopted.
He congratulated Mr. Brown extrava
gantly and declared that the publishers
got practically all they demanded. If
the bill can be kept unchanged in con
ference, he declared, all will be well.
The paper and pulp schedules came
up today for final determination while
in committee of the Whole, and Sena
tor Aldrich gracefully declared that the
committee was willing to accept the
two amendments proposed by Mr.
Brown. While he did say it out loud,
he was heard to say to a senator Bit

other fight on the paper schedule on
the floor of the senate with Brown

Aldrich that he wa3 favoring the
Brown amendments, the senators
flocked to the support of these amend
ments as though it was the 'one thing
they had come to Washington to do.
