PLATTSMOUTH, MAY 3, 1877.
An early National Constitutional
Convention to consider, among other
things, the following items:
Six years for President, and no re
election for one term, at least.
Elect the President and Vice Presi
dent as nearly by a direct vole of the
people as possible.
Elect U. S. Senator by a direct vote
of the people.
Civil Service rules: Appointments
for merit and fitness, (as a .rule from
the party in power), no removal during
lime of commission except for derelic
tion of duty.
Longer terms for State and County
Officials, fair salaries, and no re-election.
Judges to be created by appointment
and for long terms, only removable for
corrupt practices or incompetency.
We believe the country needs the
above changes in her organic laws,
and we shall, from time to time, urgi
the same upon our people. Until we
have more light this is our platform.
Help it along.

Xow this is something like a board of
When they meet and put up the right
fellow's taxes, there is some use in hav
ing things equalized. The most use
we have for aboard of this kind though
has been to unequalize values and put
down the wrong fellows taxes, often.
We certainly recommend the County
commissioners of Cheyeune county.
They knew what waswh.it, and what
they mut there for. If we were to do
that two or three tiuii s there wouldn't
be so much anxiety to alter the Assess
ors List, or to gil bcloiv tha board at
all. Let's equalize hereafter.
And now let us say a few words
about taxes once moro. It's a new
subject you know, nobody has ever
written or said anything about taxes
before. Instead of grumbling and
growling each year ai the assessors, at
the rate, at the men who buy bonds
and so on, suppose we begin at the be
ginning. In the first place we should
obey the law. The Bible says the dis
obedient shall suffer, (or words to that
effect). Our constitution contains these
few remarkable words seldom thought
of and never heeded, to-wit: "Every
person and corporation shall pay a tax
in proportion to the value of his, or
her. or its property the valua
tion to be ascertained as the Legisla
ture may direct." Sec. 4, of the "itev
enue L.aw" provides:
"All taxable property", personal and
real, shall be listed and valued each
year, at its actual value, at the place of
Can any one say this has been done?
Has any assessor listed property this
way? Either in the County or in the
State? Xow what is the effect of the
present mode of assessment. It simply
offers a premium for every man
to under lie his neighbor. Maybe you
think this is strong language. It's a
fact, if any one thinks it's too strong
go down to the county ofhee and look
over the lists as we have done. Then
each year the total assessable ilue
runs down and the rate runs up that
is on everything but money or cash se
curities. Soon we will have the taxa
ble value down to zero and the rate up
to 110, that's blood heat, vou know. In
fact the grumbling is up to blood heat
We said the assessment of money
was made at par. Let's see how that
works; suppose there was a widow in
Plattsmouth. wiih two children to ed
ucate and suppoit; her husband by
hard labor had accumulated S,000,
which he placed in bankers' hands to
be invested at 10 per cent for her use.
That nets her Si00, and on that she
lives and educates her children. Along
ecmrs the assessor; she is honest, con
scientious, not up to the tricks of trade,
and don't know how to buy bonds, for
a few days, and she gives in $5,000
monevs. The levy is -made here anal
about $450 is mulcted from her, leav
ing her $50 to live on for the next year.
How soon before she would learn to
"lie or evade that tax. Xot long we
venture to say, and we believe she
would be justified. .
We put this problem to a man and
he said: oh no; she ought to have it all
in. Wo looked at his tax list since
and we'll bet him a $100 he don't and
would'nt give in his property under
such conditions. A man brings .$20,
C00 here to loan, at 10 pr., ct., the tax
grabs Sl.COO the first year or he lies to
the Assessor and then either leaves the
Country or puts up the inrerest ; one of
the two he must do and "yet we say wo
want cheap Interest. Cheap interest
is the salvation of the country.
A company invest $30,000 in manu
factures on the 1st day of Feb. on the
first of March they are assessed at
$lf,000 and pay $800 taxes, whereas if
taxes are equal on all they should have
paid S'2,400. (Just such a case in pro
portion stands on the lists). Some
poor man makes up that extra amount
The personal list of Plattsmouth is
224,255, Real. $278,845-total $303,100.t
On this we pay, 01 should pay, nearly
8 per cent, or S40.243 city and county.
The real estate is not so much out of
the way; the personal is not one quar
ter what it should truly be.
Any one can see that to double the
valuation would lower the rate one
half. Thisyearis highbut inordinary
years this would bring our rate down
to 2 and 3 per cent. At those rates
there would be no inducement to send
money away, buy bonds and so on.
Thousands upon thousands would be
given in that are now lost. The rich
and the poor would pay alike. Bank
ers and brokers would have no excuse
to try to crawl out, as you call it. J
OC course our readers understand ,
we do not expect our assessors to make :
such valuation this year in this coun
ty, but it must be done over the whole
state. We want to keep this moving
while you are hot. Xow is your time
go for Sam Chapman, go for Joe
Beardsley, go for brother Bobbett and
demand a penalty law next Legislature
We do not believe tax sales under
these levies good. We do not believe
taxes could be collected now by law if
an earnest protest-were made.
This principle is likely to be settled
though before next winter. The Chey
enne fellows (quoted above) are going
into the courts to see if the board of
equalization have a right to raise their
assessment, and ur people are going
to try to force them to cut down the
assessor's list. Between the two we
are likely to find out something about
the real intent of the statute.
The r.'.lc on f'ily and County is a fraction
less than per cent, for convenience we call it
even 8 per cent.
