TAXATION THE REAL ISSUE
Taxation is the issue in this campaign, however hard politicians
may endeavor to center upon questions that have been settled as definite
ly as is the right of women to vote. These politicians who are respon
sible for placing this burden of taxation upon the people of the state,
like the chl'd who has been discovered in some infraction of parental
authority, would prefer to talk about something else, anything to get
away from the real issues of taxation and extravagance of the present
state administration. When pinned down to the tax itsuc they say the
farmer is to blame for it all and that the only way to reduce taxation is
by reduction of local school taxation and a reduction of pay to teachers,
etc., but that the state tax must go on. They maintain that code secre
taries cannot bo had for less than $5,000 00 per year and must be allow
ed to travel from one end of the country to the other at state expense.
Why, these employes spend more than a thousand dollars for each work
ing day of the year in travel expense alone. In seven months, accord
ing to their own official report, their traveling expense account was as

man who has rounded up so many of these law breakers and caused many
cf them to plead guilty and pay fines. Remember him November 7th.
COMMISSIONER W. E. PATTERSON
W. E. Patterson for county commissioner is a firmer "who lives in

portnntpfficc and a man like Patterson is needed.
Tho committee has not attempted to sot out at great length pages

suggestions so that you may investigate. Wo believe thoy are worthy
