wild George J. Knapp or Tueblo. wloj
spoke at the Commercial club yesterday I
under tho auspices of the public .iff Airj j

"Yes, tho ground Is to be asses ted At

to get at a system of equalization. Thre

Mr. Knapp says the levy on Uie land
tnlue for city purposes Is now 6 mills.
"We went after single tax on a straight
business argument." said Mr. Knapp.
"We campaigned on the theory that un
der single tax we can double the popula

from present Indications It looks as
though we were going to make good on It
"We already have secured one large fac

Improvements and personal property.
Denver offered the factory a bonus and
11 that to locate there, and we offered
them, nothing but exemption from taxa

"Also we put the proposition ig) this
way, that single tax is bound to come and

There was also a lot of cry against
us during the campaign, by those who
said single fax was a proposition to con

"Well w were able to show tho homo
owners who came to us on this matter
by actual figures that, by exempting their
houses and personal property and taxing
only the yaluo of the ground on which
the house stood, that the sum total of
their taxes were actually reduced Instead
of Increased. And they, were .satisfied."
Tho taxes of 6,pOT people, ot Pueblo were
reduced through tho Introduction of the

of the property owners whose taxes were
actually Increased, 96 per cent were nori

Better Grade of
Cows Bring Good
Results to State
The officials of tho homeseeker's de
partment of tho Burlington are ratified
over the results of the work undertaken
In tho western part of this state last sea
son, when a start was made to induce
farmers to buy grade mllcn cows for their
herds. Reports coming to the office show
that more than 1,000 high grade milch
cows wero purchased by tho farmers last
year and. that, so far. their net profits
have been In excess of 25 per cent greater
than from tho samo number of cows of
the 'common breeds.
The work of Inducing farmers to erado
up . their herds Is to bo continued this
season and In several of tho western
countries of tho state, the bankors of the
towns along.tho lines have been Interested
to the extent that they have agreed to
loan money to buy the cows. It is said
that tho loans are considered gilt edged,
as the purchasers of cow; give mortgages
on tho animals and na additional se
curity, hgreo to pledge a certain propor
tion of tho croain checks In paymont.
This yenr the Burlington will go Into
tho cream business more extensively than
In the past. Extra iced cars will be put
Into tho service nnd these will bo run on
the passenger trains, thus milk and cream
leaving the extreme western part of tho
state In tho evening will reach the Omaha
creameries early tho following morning.
WATER BOARD WILL NOT
MOVE THE WATER PIPE
Whether or not tho Water board will
spend Jl.COQ or &000 to remove a six-Inch
pipe from Nicholas, street, where the
base ot the viaduct will stand, or allow
tho plpo to be encased in cement, was a
question discussed by the board at a
meeting "yesterday a(teriloon.
General Manager It. B. Howell said tt
was customary for the railroads to re
move the pipe. He declared the Missouri
Pacific was a stubborn railway, anyway,
ani the city council' was criticised for or
dering the removal of the pipes.
No action was taken, and tt Is probable
that tho railroad will be permitted to
build the concrete about the pipe.
Contractors for the Missouri Pacific
have begun construction work on the
viaduct. Tho city engineer was appealed
to to force the removal ot tho six-Inch
pipe, but tho Water board will, most
likely, allow the matter to be settled Jn
anyway. Should one of the family eat
