HEARING ON TERMINAL TAX
Council Blnffi Sends Strong1 Deleft
tion to Booit for Bill.
NONE 100 CONFIDENT OF SUCCESS
Considerable Opposition t the Meas
ure Develops Anton Railroad
and Also In nnral
Council Bluffs will have a strong repre
sentation In Des Moines today at the hear
ing before the ways and mean committee
of the legislature on the railway terminal
taxation bill. Introduced by Benator C. G.
Saunders of this city. In addition to the
municipal officers a number of leading
members of the Commercial club went laat
evening to Des Moines.
The municipal party consisted of Mayor
Thomas Malonny, City Treasurer True, City
Solicitor Clem F. Kimball, Councilmen Bell
inger. Jensen, Morgan, McMillen, Olson,
Bkodsholm and Tounkerman and City Clerk
A. W. Casady. Other arrangements pre
vented Councilman Rlgdnn from going. The
party left over tho Rock' Island and will
make their headquarter In De Moines at
the Savcry hotel.
This morning the legislative committee
of the Iowa league of Municipalise will
hold a meeting to arrange for the preaenta
tlon of Ita case before the ways and means
committee. City Solicitor Kimball Is chair
man of tho league committee, which Is
composed of the city solicitors of all the
cities represented In tha league.
The Council Bluffs delegation will not
end Its work with the hearing before the
committee. It la the Intention of Mayor
Maloney, Mr. True and Mr. Kimball to
remain In Des Molncs for a few days to
make as far as possible a thorough canvass
of the members of both houses of the leg
islature. Mayor Maloney and other city officials
are not over-confident that Senator Saun
ders' bill will pass, as It is known that
there la and will be considerable opposition.
The bill Is not altogether such aa was con
templated and urged by Treasurer True
and other city officials who have been fore
most In the effort to secure a revision of
the present system of taxation of railroad
propertlee in cities.
Mayor Maloney'a Views.
Before leaving for Dea Molnea yesterday
afternoon Mayor Maloney, In discussing
Senator Saunders' bill, said:
While I favor the 'proposed bill with ref
erence to the taxation of railroad property,
because the plan of distribution Is better
than that under the existing law, aa It give
to tho place where the greater part of
the property la concentrated a larger track
mileage, and therefore, a larger percent
age of the value of the taxable property,
yet .It Is not. In my 'Judgment, the best
measure that can be devlaed for that pur
pose, nor Is It such a measure aa has been
advocated In our city.
As 1 view the matter. It la a misnomer to
call It a terminal tax lnw, for If I under
stand me existing law tho language la so
general that all terminate and other prop
erty of tho railroad are taxed under the
old law. But It Is only a different plnn
of distribution which will Increase the total
mileage of the roada over which the value
are distributed, and give to those places
that have terminals, switch yards and the
like a better percentage of the whole than
they have hnd undT the law now In force
and for that reason Is more preferable.
It may Increase the taxes of the roada a
little, but 1 don't look for It to Increaae
them very much, as I presume the exe
cutive council look largely to the earning
capacity of the roada In fixing the values
of Its properties.
I believe that In the taxation or railroads
they should be put upon the same footing,
os near aa possible, as the Individual tax
payer. And I am satisfied that It enn be
done In a manner more creditable than that
propoaed by the present bill. The amend
ment I think should be made to the
present law la to have the executive coun
cil. Instead of distributing the taxable
value of the road In proportion to Ita mile
age In each taxing district, distribute the
same In proportion to yhat the actual value
of Ita property In each taxing district
bears to the total value of ita property In
The proposed hill, while it adds a, tirrat
many more words ft detnll in description of
the property to be taxed that were In
eluded In words of general description now
In tho law, and In that way "sounds good,"
it Is open to the old objection of giving
to all placea along It line the benefit of
the values cf permanent Improvements,
such as shops, etc., that are located In on
There Is no good reason why the value
of extensive Improvements such aa are
found In cities, should be distributed to
adjoining townshlpa that-have none of It
property within it borders, but the bare
track, and which requirea an expenditure
of public money from the beginning to the
nd of the year. The real protection and.
benefit which the roads get from taxatloi
by way of police, fire, water, light and
the like cornea from the cltlea along their
lines where their valuable Improvements
The assessment of values of such prop
erty must, of necessity, be left with some
auch tody as the executive council, and
thore need be no change in that particular.
And tho detailed statement of the property
of tha roada can Just aa well be malo
with reference to Ita location os to the
particular taxing district.
The objection is sometimes made that
Persons living In the country district would
oppose such a measure, because they would
thus tie deprived or the benefit of the taxa
tion of property located outside their dis
tricts. But If the lawmaking power reeog
nlsra that it is wrong for on to take
property that does not belong to him,
why should It recognise the right to take
taxea by those who are not morally en
titled to them'.' - It Is said that the railroads
would oppose such a plan, hecnuse tt might
largely increase their taxes. But If I must
bear the burden of my share of our city
taxes, why should not they, who certainly
enjoy as much or more protection, pay
their Just share of such taxes? I claim that
the only way to attain auch a fVult a by
aome auch plan as above euggested.

aenate went on record for a simpler ballot
and made It plain there will be no going
back to the disctrded plan of having a
circle on the ballot aa a sop to the Ignorant
The Peteraon bill to remove the option
of having the names of president and vice
president placed on the ballots waa paased
by a vote of 30 to 14. Senator Peterson
In presenting the measure stated that It
was due to this fact that all the conteets
had come In Iowa and all ths trouble over
badly marked ballots. The voters had In
slsted upon placing squares in front of
the candidates for president and vice-preal
dent and these were clearly In violation of
The opposlton wss led by Adams, Savage,
Saunders and McCuIlough, who talked
chiefly about restoring the circle to the
ballot and complained that the bill to re
store the circle had not yet been reported.
The vote of 30 to 14 proves conclusively
that It will be Impossible to get through
the senate a bill to restore the circle. A
great many petitions hsve come In for res
toration of the circle, but It was not re
commended In the message of the governor
and Is not .desired by a majority of the
senators. . .,.
Direct Inheritance Taxes. .
The senate passed without, change the

tance tax. - It provides for a tax on all

000 will be charged I per cent. The eur-
vlvlng spouse will not have to pay any

Two more of the, contests In the house
came to a head, today when the commit
tees counting votes in . Marion and

the legislature this week will result in
ousting from the State Board of Education
college' presidents, who under the prenent
school law possess . the 'balance of power.
Laymen are to be put In control, following
general dissatisfaction with the State Edu
cational Board of Examiners on ths theory
that the Issuing of certifications Is hedged
about with too many arbitrary and
academic provlaiona. In the board of five
now in existence three of the members are
the presidents of the State university and
the slate normal schools. The new boaiel
is to bs composed of seven members. A
majority of the committee today went on
record in favor of the county unit, wl'h
control of local matters still left to a town
ship board of three members, and a county
board to be composed of the head of each
township board. Thee Ideaa will be em
bodied In the second of the two sjbstitule
bills to be drsfted. The county superin
tendents of schools Is to be elected at the
March election instead of being appointed
as at present. At least three first class busi
