BIG JOB FOB THE
Classification and Taxation of In
tangible Property One of
i i,cavc it to ine legislature. was
generally the cry in the constitutional
! convention. Now that the amend
ments submitted by the convention
have adopted by voters it is begin
ning to dawn upan observer? that the
next legislature ought to be and un
doubtedly will be the most important
! session held within the memory of
'men now living.
While the convention was criticised
ifor not rising to its opportunities and

it did submit, numbering forty or
more, are of vast importance. They
are believed to be of sufficient im-
jportar.ee to bring a lot of influence to
i bear upon the legislators. Few of
the amendments are self executing.
The legislature should pass laws to
carry out the intent of the constitu
tion. While the courts ultima1 ely
decide- what the convention's work
means, the legislature must make the
first guess. If the legislature over
steps its power, the court5 can declare
its acts void, but under the amend
ments relating to the court it will re
quire five of the seven judges of the
supreme court to declare. Four judg
es could do this under the present
When the legislature convenes on

the convention in force and effect.

called, intangible property, by classi
fication of such property, with a
different rate of taxation for each
class, and imposing taxes other than
i property tax.
j These are not all the matters
j which will tome before the legislature
as a result cf new amendments to
! the constitution. Irrigation and wa
iter rights are to be further defined
'by the legislature. Competing pub
lic utilities must not consolidate with
jout. permission of the railway com
i mission, and. the legislature must
lay down some rules for the cominis-
sion on this question.
j Taxation of Secwities.
j The legislature raiFt pass on act.
' which may anioUat to a revision of
the revenue laws just because the peo-
pie adopted an amendment reducing
the minimum countv tax limit from
Jl.r.n a hundred to r.O cents on the
hundred. "If this means taxes are to
be based on sctnal valuation instead
of the present one-fifth valuation,
the state board of taxation will, have
to revise its figures and deal in bil
lions instead of millions.
A merry time ia exbected when
the legislature takes up the work of
passing laws taxing so-called intangi
ble property, such as notes, mort
gages and other securities- Whether
this shall be a small tax, enough to
bring such property out of hiding, or
at the same rate other property is
taxed, is for the legislature to say.
The work of classifying all such
property and fixrng a different rate
for different classes promises to be a
puzzling one, and all the time the
law makers are at it they are likely
to be surrounded with expert and
interested advisers, some of them per
sonally interested. Justice for all
and some revenue for the state out
of this class of property will be two
interests hard to accomplish. Min
nesota legislation on intangible pro
perty is much admired by some mem
bers of the convention who formed
the amerdment to the constitution.
When the law makers take up the
question of establishing an industrial
commission, similar to the one in
Kansas, they may be flooded with ad
vice from labor unions and federa
tions and owners of factories and
large industries. The legislature is
at liberty to listen also to the voice
of profiteers, for they are interested
parties. It is likely an industrial
commission of three members, ap
pointive by the governor, may be
created, but the legislature may de
cide to make members of the railway
commission members of such a com
mission. Such a commission, with
the creattion cf a state tax commis
sioner and possibly new executive of
fices, promise much for place hunters
who desire to get closer to the state
payroll. Heretofore the legislature
could not create new executive of
fices. Now it will have this power
to use for good or evil. In regard
to an industrial commission the con
stituaion merely provides for such a
court, appeals from its decision to
be taken to the ordinary courts. The
industrial court will thus not be able
to enforce its own orders, if the
r.menudment is understood alright.

i teachers, who must reside within the
district during their term of teach
ing. "Nine old districts, with forlorn
! one-room buildings, each with often
a young, untrained teacher, are new
replaced by the consolidated school.
The enlarged district included 100
square miles, three congressional dis
tricts and has within its borders 250
farm houses. The farmers liberally
i support the new school, as it pro
vides education equivalent to city
schools at much less cost to the in
dividual family." said Superintendent
"Of the 400 pupils at least 340
go by auto to school every day, some
traveling fifteen miles. The fare is
only 12 to 14 cents, equivalent to
street car fare." explained Mr. Sar
gent, in whose honor this remarkable
school has been named. The Sar
gent school is one of 131 co-operative
districls in Colorado.
The school is only one phase of
community life, so that the Sargent
district has broadened out into so
