Same of the New Subscribers the Most Valiant Fighters Those Who En

Any one who thinks that populism
is in decadence or that populists have
lost their fighting spirit should read
a few of the hundreds of letters that
come to this office. Thousands of
them are fuller of fight than a wild
cat yet. Besides the old line populists
there are also thousands who call
themselves democrats who are just as
earnest in their efforts for reform as
any populist. These men have taken
hold of the proposition to ex
tend the circulation of our literature
with all the enthusiasm that distin
guished the organizers of the Farmers'
Alliance, whose work will live in his
tory as long as history is read.
Five thousand of the Liberty Build
ing postals have already been sold,
which means 4,000 new readers of The
Independent,' one in each five being
good for a renewal. Many of the new
subscribers obtained in this way have
become enthusiastic workers and are
now out .selling blocks of five them
selves. This shows that what Is needed
to make an army of fighting reformers,
who will put their armor on and go
out into this campaign, trained and
disciplined, ready to go into action at
any moment, is to put into their hands
once a week, a copy of The Indepen
dent, fresh from the press, filled as
it always is, with vigorous, effective
The interest in this work shows that
the old time fighting spirit is found

ation of independence shall not be re

trodden underfoot, the common people
will not execute a deed of the world
to the millionaires. They may suffer
long, endure much, but the time is near
at hand when they will demand their
Those who have cards should not
delay the sale. It is urgent that as
many as possible be sold and the

riots who are advancing the lines in
every county in this state, with scout
ing parties ranging through every
other state of the whole union.

seen that a greater number enlisted

COMPRESSED AIR WATER TANKS
AKew In volition Which "Will bo Popular
- With the FMi mcrs Pure Water -l
t Free From Dirt .."
To meet an ever increasing demand
from the rural and village homest ail"
kinds of devices have arisen to facil
itate the ends .of comfort and . sanita
tion in the country. This is a move-,
ment in the right direction, for when
modern convenience can be added to
the rural home, many who might be'
inclined to seek the comforts and con-
' ' veniences . of the city, become better
satisfied with their lot, and remain
contendedly where they are. Visit the'
farms of eastern Nebraska, and even
some of our most distant and inac
cessable ranch houses and you will be
surprised to -find every modern conven-
ience in the way of hot and cold
water and bath. Nowhere apparently
is the bath tub more highly apprecia'
ted than upon the farm. The fact
that a farmer begrimed by the dust
of the day can clean up, relieves farm,,
labor of an odium which is attached
to the calling. The windmill, forced
pump," and elevted tanks make the
bath and law sprinkler a possibility
on the farm. But the rural water
works are often a source of constant
care; the tank leaks, freezes, fills with
dirt, and becomes green with equatic
plants necessitating unremitting .sup
ervision. The pipes leading to and
from the elevated tank must be boxed
and packed with straw or dust, in spite
of which precaution they are prone to
freeze, and so render the water sys
tem inoperative for days at a time.
In spite of all, pipes will freeze and
burst, and there are no plumbers in
the country to respond to the call of
the : telephone. All of these r render
the elevated tank objectionable as
well - as unsightly, and makes it in
cumbent to call the attention of . citi
zens to the compressed air tanks
which are stationed out of publicview
below the ground or in ones cellar with
all pipes buried out of the reach of
frost, and the water incased in an air
tight receptacle to the - exclusion of
dust and growing plants. It is a sys-.
tern which commends Itself at once to
respectful attention. The tanks are
made' of boilerplate, and for the av
erage family should- have a capacity
of 700 or 800 gallons. Water from the
well; is pumped into the tank either
by hand or by the windmill. Of course
as the water is forced in the air is
compressed, " and reacting upon the
water driven through every pipe from
the attic to the cellar. However,, air
thus imprisoned, is very freely ab
sorbed by water and the pressure cor
respondingly reduced. " This is 'ad
roitly -avoided by an air pump con
nected with the regular pump so that
air and water are pumped at the
same, time into the tank. A gauge
gives the pressure which the tank is
sustaining, and it, can be so regulated
that everything acts automatically and
with precision and certainty. When
the , amount of water is sufficient "and
the' pressure right the mill is thrown
automatically out of gear, and as soon
as the pressure begins to run low the
same self-regulating device throws it
in gear. Ail things considered 'it
seems to be an admirable device, and
one worthy of general notice. Of
course there are certain makes which
are, cheap . affairs and like . all such
they -are dpt to prove disapointing and
expensive; The standard makes.
however5 if - properly , installed, :seem
sure to; give ; satisfactory service and
one has- the additional gratification of
feeling :that the water for his house
hold use is free from1 the objectionable
features which hold in the case of
ordinary tanks. :This much - seems
certain j that ;nb one can '. afford , wh ile1.
studying the .question of : a water, sys
tem to pass this one by without first
cost of a : tank fitted with all the ap
pliances,' and large enough for the or
dinary family ' is about one hundred
dollars. ,; Furthermore . villages and
towns, ::as; many are already doing,
should consider the advantages of a
sealed compressed air . tank, in , pref
erence to the old kinds of reservoirs.-

e The Omaha Tax Case
The Omaha Bee pertinently remarks
that "after two months'.' jangling the
referee in the corporation tax contro
versy has -discovered that there ary
several flaws, in, the revenue laws that
compelhinrr; to recommend the dis
missal i pf C the complaint, which very
forcibiy' recalls the story of the moun
tain that Uabored and brought forth
It is unnecessary to go at length into
the history, of this case. The Omaha
real estate 5 exchange, seeing that the
corportions of that citv were not as
sessed as hfgfc as other propertv
Owners, began an action in mandamus
in the supreme court to compel the
city council, fitting as a board of
equalization, to correct the inequalities
complained of. Judge Robert Ryan
was appointed referee by the court and
has put Nin two months hearing evi
dence and arguments on either side.
His conclusions of fact are that .the
writ ought to be granted, because the
city council dd notXgive a hearing on
the complaints of the Omaha Roil
Estate exchange, but as a matter of
law he says it ought not to be granted,
because the writ asked "for would di
rect the assessment , of the corporate
property at 40 per cent of real value
(the per cent other Owaha property
is supposed to be assessed at) where
as the law requires that it should all
he assessed at fair cash value: and lie
believes the court should not direct
the board of equalization to do some
thing which the law directs to be dene
otherwise In other words, although
the corporations are assessed at some
thing like 15 to 20 per cent of the fair
cash value, and other property at
about 40 per cent, nothir g can be done
to remedy the matter because the law
requires all ; property to be assessed
at 300 per. cent; On this Judge Ryan
says: h" V ; . '
? While. I find that technically the re
lators are entitled to a writ of man
damus for ; certain purposes I find
f arther that in its discretion this court
should not issue the writ in this case,
for reasons I' shall ndw state in detail,
and these reasons are: - '
1. The manner in which companies
and associations incorporated under
the laws of this state (except insur
giving 'it; careful consideration. The 4 ace companies)' shall be assesed is
prescribed v by. section 32, chapter
lxxvii: comniled statutes, and this
method I find is exclusive of any other
method. It is, however, abortive, it
not unconstitutional, as to the four
.of the corporations, exclusive of-the
telephone company,1 which had no
debt, for it requires the market' or real
value of the corporate stock to be
assessed after deducting; corporate in
debtedness, and-this corporate indebt
edness is twice deducted, once in fix
ing the market or real value of the
stock and again by an actual sub
traction "required by the statute.
2. The alternative writ, even ys
amended, shows that the basis of
valuation for assessment purposes i.
Omaha is 40 per cent ot me real value
of all property assessed, except V.ie
property of the said corporation, and

CONVENIENT because the operator can, by means of an adjust

and by the interchangeable hitching device there is no inconven
ience in having the horses walk in their proper places.
DURABLE because it is of comparatively LIGHT DRAFT and

emptory writ must follow the alter

dents would be required to violate the
express provisions of section ,4 and 5
aforesaid,' if the averments in the
alternative writ are true.
Taxing Corporate Stocks
Section 32 of the Nebraska revenue
law (which was enacted in 1S79) pre
scribed the manner of assessing all
corporations, companies and associa
tions,., except insurance i companies.
The law providing for listing and as
sessment of railroad and telegraph
property was amended in 18S1 (section
39 and 40, chapter 77, compiled stat
utes) Judge Ryan, in the Omaha tax
case, points out that ' section 32 's
abortive and probably, unconstitu
tional. But be this as it may, it de
volves, upon the next legislature to
provide a rational and reasonable
method of ascertaining the value of
corporation property and franchises.
Section 32 provides that, "Bridge, ex
press, ferry, gas, manufacturing, min
ing, savings bank, stage, street rail
road, transporatlon, and all other com
panies -and associations, except' insurance-companies,
shall, in addition
to otheK property required by this
act, to be v. listed, make out and de
liver to the assessor a sworn state
ment of the amount of its capital
stock" setting . forth the amount ' of
capital stock authorized, and the
number of shares; the amount paid
up; the market value or actual value
of the shares; the total amount of all
Indebtedness, except tor current ex
penses; the assessed valuation of all
Its real and. personal property. And
the assessor is required to deduct the
indebtedness and valuation of real ami
personal property from the value of its
shares of stock, and the remainder, if
any, is to be listed for taxation .as
capital stock. The nonsense of "such
rule i3 well shown by taking an vic
tual case. The Burlington system in
3898 was stocked at $14,503 per mileV
Us bonded indebtedness was $22,767
per mile. Accordingly, If that road's
property were assessed at; say, $6,000
per mile on the average, its capital
stock could not be taxed because the
funded indebtedness alone, exceeds
the capital stock some $8,200 a mile.
There is no good reason for taxing
the capital stock of any corporation.
It is simply a waste of time. Cor
porations that do not en.ioy some pub
lic franchise should simply be as
sessed on the property they own. li
cannot matter to the taxing power
whether such, a corporation, ownin;;
$100,000 worth of property, is capt'.al
ized at $30,000 or $500,000. so long
as the corporation is engaged in purely
private business the value of- each
share will be above par or below par
corresponding to whether the cor
poration is under or over-capitalized.
But as regards public service or
quasi-public corporations, like the
railroads, for example, the capital
ization should be considered, not ;is
a subject for taxation .but to ascer
tain the total value of the corpora
tion's property and franchises. To Il
lustrate: Supose the Burlington's
property in Nebraska is actually worth
$25,000 per mile. Its capitalization Is
$37,270 per mile for both stocks and
bonds must be considered together.
Accordingly the Burlington's fran
chise would be worth $12,270 per
A clear distinction should be made
between actually taxing corporate
s tocks and bonds, and merely consider
ing them in arriving at the value of
the corporation's franchise that is
to say, its right to perform' certain
services for the public and "charge
all the traffic will bear." The legis
lature of 1903 has a duty to perform In
