Taxation a Live Issue In Nebraska
Washington, April 7. The Forest
Service has just begun to advertise the
twelfth large lot of National Forest
timber offered for sale within the past
nine mouths. Altogether it has ad
vertised since July 1, luls, the begin
ning of the present tlscal year, about
2,000,000,000 feet, and has closed con
tracts for the sale of l,;0U,0l'0,OCO feet.
The latest advertised sule is of ap
proximately .VJ.OuO.OCO feet of saw tim
ber in the Rainier National Forest,
about 35 miles from Tacoma.
Iu offering National Forest timber
lor sale the liovernnient tirst makes an
estimate of the quantity of timber on
an arca'whlch would naturally foim a
single logging unit, and which offers
attractive oppoituuities for the lum
bcimau. The probable cost of logging
and nianufactuiingby a capable lum
bcimau is then estimated. On the
basis of these estimates combined with
the I'guicH for uituket values and
freight charges the timLcr is appraised
and then advcitised for tale, with the
appraised value us a minimum price.
7 ho minimum prices sol for the
nuiuler timber aiy In m r.0 cents to
SI n0 per thousand Jeet, according to
the kind of timber. These arc stump
itgc prices that Is, the puichaser buys
the tries on the stump and dues all
the logging, but pas uccoiding to the
board foot niiasiiru of the logs The
Movcrumciil aims to allow the maun
factum-a liberal piollt mi tho basis
that lumbering involves a good deal of
business risk, and the minimum stump
ago prices arc tlxed accordingly. Of
ten, however, competitive bids raise
the price .above the advertised mini
'vxaum. One of the provisions of the contract
which the successful bidder for the
Rainier timber will enter into will be
that if market prices advance mater
ially the (loverument's Chief Foi ester
may, after the sale has run three years,
require, a reasonable readjustment of
the btumpage pi ices up to an added Ml
cents per thousand. Tho object of
this stipulation is to prevent loss to
the Government Unit is, to tho pub
lic and an undue profit to the pur
chaser through lmig.Uriu contracts
cnteied into on a rising market. Pro
vision against such speculative profits
is rcgiuded s csj eclal.'v iiccc sary in
view of tho long-term sale' now roinu
times made to get pin chaser tor large
bDilies of inaccessible limber.
For the Itainiur sale tho cutting
period allowed is only live, joars, since
tho quantity of timber involved ap
proximately o?,C00,0L0 board feet
does not call fur an extended oper
ation. Ouo National Forest sale made

Notwithstanding the strenuous ef
forts of the legislature for economy,
the expenses of state government arc
Increasing and important lines of state
development arc hampered because of
the desire to keep down the tax burden
The attention of the legislature has
been called to the need of anetlleleticy
study of administration of statu funds
and methods of accounting and oiUcc
management iu order to eliminate ob
vious waste In many departments
which are operating on obsolete
methods; this indicates that the new
board of Control has a man's size job
cut out for it.
The tendency toward extravagance
in state expenditures is not the chief
source of the tax burden, however.
We have examined a tax receipt from
one of the interior counties of the
state for 11)12, which illustrates where
the tax money is going. This receipt
is for a total or fill. 12: of thlsumouut,
SIU.1'2 only is state tax, or 10.1 percent
of the total; this state tax is based on
a levy of u 1.5 mills of which one mill
Is for university purposes. This tax
payer paid S18.'j:t for school district
and Slfi.TO Tor bond, or n total of i'.!oo..
02 tax for school district and school
bonds, or 111 percent of his total tax
which was expended for local educa
tional purposes. Tins case is probably
typical of the average Nebraska coun
ty; when bl'.O percent of the total tax
burden is for local administration the
taxpayer might profitably stop cussing
the legislature and state olHclals for a
time and look around home a bit.
This taxation question is a live issue;
the legislature has submitted an
amendment to the constitution known
as House Hull No. 02, by Representa
tive Norton of Polk county, which re
moves the present constitutional re
strictions on taxation and leaves the
power to make tax laws in the hands
of the people. This amendment will
be submitted at the next general elec
tion providing for "Uniform and Pro
gressive Taxation." If this amend
ment is adopted the people of Nebras
ka will be free to adopt income tax,
graduated taxation or any of the other
reform measuies which have proven
helpful in other states
This question is now before the
people for consideration; look up your
tax icceipts and study them.

A' friend writes: "You say a good deal about the style of your Wooltex coats
and suits and what you say is true, hut why don't you say something about the
gOOdltaste in them? Some stylish women are terribly overdressed."
One of the many differences
between Wooltex garments
and other less expertly de
signed productions is in just
that factor of tastefulness.
Wooltex styles are stylish they lead the
styles. But they are the embodiment of the re
strained, refined fashion-sense that marks the wo
man of cultivated taste. They are meant for
women who know how to dress.
And that is why the beft-dressed women in
this locality buy their clothes here.
New models in Wooltex coats and suits
You really should not miss seeing these beautiful Wooltex garments now.

than that we have very fine clothes at $30, $35, $30.
But $25 is a good average price; most men who appreciate
good quality and style in clothes, good tailoring and fit,
are willing to pay as much as $25.

Better see how true this is; $25 is a price you can afford, and you'll say so
when you see the clothes. Better come and look at the new spring styles
