to the Fablfe.
The tnasa meeting last night la Farmers'
ball In the county courthouse, called by
President Wallace of the Municipal Non
partlsin league, , voted to request the re
publican city convention to nominate 8. F.
Henry, former member of the school board,
for mayor. An attempt to get the meet
ing to Include the name of Dell O. Morgan
waa voted down by Mr. Henry adherent.
The hall was well filled, but the Informal
ballot taken, which was restricted to mem
bers of the league, showed that less thaa
thirty of them were present.
In calling the meeting to order President
Wallace explained the purpose of the
league and called upon the committee who
had the matter In hand to make a report
of the name of men for the various city
office whom It considered could be sup
ported by the league If nominated by either
party. Frank Key, a chairman of the
committee, declined to make publto the
list, on the ground that he believed It
would be Impolitic at this time to mention
them. A. M. Johnson and D. Brown, other
members of the committee, were then called
upon to furnish the meeting with the list,
but they declined on the ground that It
had been decided to withhold the names
for the present.
This brought forth a remark from Presi
dent Wallace to the effect that he was
afraid the presence of so many politicians
and newspaper reporters prevented the
committee from disclosing what It had been
appointed to find out. He said he was half
Inclined ' to make a report himself, but
deemed It would be not good form to do so.
Rev. J. W. Calfee, pa a tor of Broadway
Methodist church, said he wanted to know
what they were there for and that they
ought to know. If they were going to put
up an Independent ticket ' they ought to
know it and If they were simply going to
Indorse candidates of : both . parties the
sooner they did so the better. Dr. Macrae,
sr., suggested that the report of the com
mittee. If tt could be considered a report,
be said, be laid on the table, and that Mr.
Key whisper In Rev. Calfee' ear the
name the committee had -decided upon,
as he believed Rev. Calfee would ba man
enough to disclose them. Tb motion to
lay the report on the table prevailed, but
Mr. Key made no effort to carry out Dr.
President Wallace then said he saw no
reason why there should be any secrecy
and mentioned the name of 8. F. Henry
as candidate for mayor, which be said
would undoubtedly be acceptable to the
member of the organisation. ..
Brarln Tbelr 8nT;esloae.
Rer. W. S. Barnes, after talking on tb
purpose of the , organisation, suggested
that the members present voice their se
lections for the various city office and Dr.
Macrae at once suggested J. B. F. McQe.
W. C. Dickey followed with the name of
Dell O. Morgan and honors were even then
between the democrats and republicans. As
this plan did not promise any definite re
sult, " Rev. Calfee moved that an Informal
ballot be taken for names of candidates
for mayor, city solicitor and two aldermen
at large on the understanding that only
members of the league were to vote. This
For Mayor S. F. Henry, 17 votes; D.
O. Morgan, 6; H. B. Knowlea, Victor Jen

W. McDonald. 1 each.

Dr. Snyder moved to amend by including
the name of Dell Morgan, hut . the amend
ment was voted down and Henry' mayor

Dr. Macrae then moved to adjourn ana

that the lajurle received by Haverstock

RAILROAD TAX BILL PASSES
Decisive Vote in the Senate for Eefision of
HOUSE STANDS BY CIRCLE ON BALLOTS
Elkln Pardon Caae laveatlaated
Favorable Reaert a Appellate
Cenrt Bill t nltarlnne la
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE3 MOINES, March 11. (Special.) Th
first piece of general legislation which ha
attracted state-wide attention came up for
consideration In the senate this morning,
being the committee bill for revision of the
law relating to the manner of assessing
railway property. Senator Lewis of Page
'county, chairman of the committee charged
with the duty of preparing this bill, called
It up on special order and spent the entire
forenoon presenting la detail the argu
ments for the measure. He preaented an
array of statistic showing that railway
property In Iowa Is not assessed propor
tionate to It value, cither when compared
with other property in the state or with
railway property In other states. There le a
general belief prevalent In Iowa that nnder
our present law railway property I as
sessed aad taxed too low. This bill was
prepared aa a remedy. The present law Is
a modified form of assessment on gross
earnings, but the assessing body Is also
authorised to take Into consideration net
earnings and tb physical condition of the
property. He contended that neither of
these elements may be taken as absolute
in determining the actual value of the
property, nor ean any group of them be
considered sufficient. The pending bill
seeks to amend the law by requiring that
the assessing body shall take into con
sideration, besides the items in the present
lsw, the market value of stocks and bonds,
and this value shall form the chief basis of
Baala of Earnings.
The companies base their earning on
stocks and bonds and why not, be asked,
have the state take this as the basis for
taxation? Yet 8enator Lewi declared he
was not quite prepared to vote for an ab
solute stocks and bonds bill. Th commit
tee bill make publicity rather thsn stocks
and bonds the first essential. The council
must make public its proceedings that all
taxpayer may know what I being done at
the time of assessment. This bill gives
discretion to the assessing board. This !
right and It Is necessary under our consti
tution. There cannot be any half-way dis
cretion. It must be lodged In the council,
and this bill destroys the star chamber
method of arriving at conclusions which
have prevailed in Iowa. We had better pro
ceed along the line of evolution than to at
tempt revolution In Iowa. He advised the
extremists to come together on some mid
dle ground. A law too stringent would lead
to a revulsion of feeling and a revolt. Do
w want discord In Iowa the next two years
and a legislature made up of extremists?
He advised the railroad lobby to remain
away and not to defeat the bill, because to
do so would mean a stronger bill two years
from this tlrae
Ineqnallty of Taxation.
In the course-ofhl remarks Senator
Lewis gave th- following brief showing of
the Inequality of taxation In Iowa as com
pared with surrounding state:
g1 eluallled valuation of Iowa I
Taxes levied in the year 1901,819,728,790.
Per cent of tax to valuation, J per rent.
Railway valuation In Iowa, 847,071.261
In order to brlnr thA valuation nt. Twa
railway nroperty up to the average of the
states of Illinois, Minnesota. Missouri. Ne
braska and Wisconsin would require an
Incrxaae over present assessment of
88 per cent on basis of average tax
per mile, equal $27,831,180
as.1 per cent on baala of gross earn
ings per mile, equal 17.039,702
29.8 per cent on bade of net earn
ings per mile, equal 14,0n,r8
An average on the three compari
son" o $19,456,018
Thla Increase valuation of Iowa railway
property at S', per cent rate would make an
Increase of railway tax aa follows:
kjxi mileage oasis
On groas earnings oasis
On net earnings basis
An average on the three comparl-
son of ..
According to the census of 1890 the ratio
of assessed to true valuation in lowi Is
22.7 per cent. The same In the five named
states averages 28.8 per cent.
So the true value of Iowa property Is 18
per cent higher than the average of the
Deducting from the Increased valu
ation above of $18,483,018
18 per cent of the $47,071,255 at which
rallwaya are aaaeaeed 8.4T2.7S0
e or assessed valua-
tion Iowa rallwaya.
Senator Porter's Amendments.
The senate held an afternoon session for
the sole purpose of continuing the discus
sion of the assessment bill.
Senator Porter offered two amendments
having for their purpose making It man
datory on the executive council to make the
asaeaament en the basis ef stock and bond
and that alone, and to require that in mak
ing a report on the work of assessing th
council shall publish a statement shewlag
what Is the vslue of the stocks snd botids
of the companies whose properties are being
ssseaaed. . In a discussion of the propoaed
amendments Senator Porter contended that
there should be no half-way measure
adopted, but that th bill should go th
full length of providing for assessment on
tb be el of value of stock and bond.
Passed by Deolalve Vole.
The railway assessment bill occupied th
entire dsy and was finally passed by a de
cisive vote. The amendments offered by
Porter were all voted down. He spoke
earnestly for .his amendments snd Insisted
that without ' auch amendment tb bill
would not accomplish what wa desired, the
raising of th assessments of ths railroad
property In Iowa.
Senator Junkia of Montgomery county
closed the debet In a feeling address, la
which he referred to the fact that th rail
road had aeot to the elty a strong lobby
to try to defeat the measure snd this wss
