TO TEST NEW REVENUE LAW
Western Union Telegraph Company Opposes
the Gross Earnings Flan.
SUPERINTENDENT H0RT0N TELLS WHY
lays It ia Not Fair to Impose game
Method of Taxation on Telearraph
. Property aa ia Applied to
The new revenue law enacted by the late
legislature la about to run up against Its
first snag. The Western Union Telegraph
company threatens to make a legal test of
the section which regulatea Its taxation.
It may do this by proceeding directly with
a court case or It may take the defensive
by refusing to comply with the law In
making returns of Its taxable property.
The precise grounds have not been definitely
The revenue law provides that telegraph,
telephone and express companies shall be
assessed upon their tangible property and
In addition thereto upon their gross earn
ings for one year as their franchise values.
It la this feature which Is objectionable to
the Western Union, says Superintendent
fiorton of Omaha.
' "I am not prepared to say what our
people Intend doing," said Mr. Horton,
"but they are not satisfied with the new
law., It Is not fair tb Impose upon us the
same method of taxation aa la proposed to
regulate express companies, for the good
and sufficient reason that express com
panies have scarcely any property taxable
as compared with what we have.
. "We have valuable planta and systems
ver the state our own property while
press companies rent most all the val
uable property they use. They have noth
ing to pay taxes on except their wagons,
horses and office fixtures snd such things
as that. Then again, this law la wrong,
because It Is based on a false and erroneous
theory of taxation. This franchise value Is
all wrong. There Is nothing equitable
4tr sane In that. The combination fixed up
la that section looks very auch llku
"We did not go down to the legislature
and, try to prevent the passage of this or
any other law; we took no hand In the leg
islature. That is not our way of doing
business. We believe In letting the legis
lature attend to its own affairs and then If
we have any grlevancea look to the courta
It will be recalled by those who followed
the proceedings of this legislature closely
that the very provision of the new revenue
law to which the Western Union objects
looked good to the Omaha Street Railway
company; so good. In fact, that that cor
poration simply exhausted Its resources
In endeavoring to get under that sec
tlon, The fact of the matter is that through
the skillful maneuvering of Its lobbyists
It did sltp In twice, but twice was exposed
and pried out, the bill finally going through
with street railways taxed on a different
