At least one society has taken up

the city to be. on hand because the
arguments presented there both pro

The Real Problem.
The great problem confronting the
people of Nebraska is not the liquor
It is tho question of equality in tax
ation. There is shameful inequality in tax
ation in Nebraska. The men of great

The men who have money do not pay
their share of taxes on tho money.
Millions of dollars are on deposit in
the banks of Nebraska, and yet not
ten per cent of tho deposits ever getj
under tho eye of tho assessor.
It Is to the shame of Nebraska
statesmen that they have been unablo
to dovise a plan for more equitable
taxation in this state. Tho largo cit
ies In the stato are supposed tocoutain
the bulk of tho wealth of the state,
and yet in the largo cities the taxation
rate per capita is sometimes one hun
dred per cent bolow tho per capita rate
in tho agricultural districts.
Let us not pay all attention to the
election ol a legislature to deal with
the liquor problem. Let us try to
elect legislators who will havo wisdom
and courngo to etinct legislation to
place tho people on an equality in the
matter of taxation.
It Is a shameful fact that in Ne
braska the great burden of taxation Is
borne upon the shoulders of the small
home-owners. This Is wrong. In
stend of penalizing the men who build
homes, the law should encourage
them. Instead of commanding the
assessor to look into the bins nud
barns of the farmers to get every
bushel of grain on tho tax rolls, the
law should compel tho assessor to
look into the bank accounts, nud thus
get every dollar of money ami credits
on the tax list.
Some day this present system of un
equal taxation will breed trouble in
Nebraska. Let us correct tiio evil be
fore the day of trouble. -Columbus

There is no room for doubt but that I
our town, with the united etl'orta of
its enterprising citizens, can greatly'
inciease its business and enhance the I
value of property. Everything ludl
cates a forwaid movement.
Our new electric light superintend
ent, D. II. Iticli, is rapidly informing
himself as to the condition of our sys
tem and our need1-. He is taking hold
with considerable vigor and the Chief
expects much from hisadmiuistration.
Ho has already reduced the voltage
from 128 to lip thereby reducing the
strain on tho light in the down town
district which alsoreduces the amount
of coal consumed. A transformer will
be installed in Jie Piatt addition
which will give that pait of town ex
cellent light while It takes away the
heavy load at the power house. This
will boa grcat&avlugon the machinery
and will extend the life of our plant

$7.00 for all coal used ff his adminis

and our citizens generally will be
pleased to learn that there will be re
trenchment all along the line.

A signal democratic victory occurred
in Maine this week. "The best turill"
bill ever passed" did not seem to suit
(he people of Maine. For the tlrst
time in yoars the dcmociats captured
tho entire stato. Now will wo hear
the republicans say "As goes Maine
so goes tho nation?" This simply
shows that even tho slow east Is tired
of the control of tho special Interests.
Cannon, Aldrich and Taft no doubt
contributed much to the defeat of
their party. It Is about time that
people should come to their souses
and oeuso voting tho predatory inter
