"The owner of a cottage worth H.WO In Pueblo, Colo., now pays 33 cents n ! year In taxes on that cottage undar tin new tingle tax pollry adopted by Pueb ." I wild George J. Knapp or Tueblo. wloj spoke at the Commercial club yesterday I under tho auspices of the public .iff Airj j committee. Mr. Knapp Is the man who won single tax for rucblo In a whin-' wind, straight business campaign. Us subject were was "Single Tax and Lower Taxes." The speaker outlined the schedule as It Is adopted In Pueblo. Fifty Per ceit of the value of the Improvements and personal property Is exempted since Jar. uary 1, 19H. Forty-nine per cent more 1 to be exempted from taxation January 1, ISIS. Actual ground values are lax -i at full value. "Yes, tho ground Is to be asses ted At full value," said Mr. Knapp, "and .lw next thing we want to do In I'ucb.o is to get at a system of equalization. Thre have Ions been vacant lots lying In l'u eblo owned by rich men that were as sessed at while right beside thsin lav other vacant lots owned by some pov laboring man assessed at IV) sr (3) apiece. To correct this Injustice of v,. uatloa U to be our next step." Tnz la Hedncrcl. 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 tion of Pueblo In four or five years, and from present Indications It looks as though we were going to make good on It "We already have secured one large fac tory all because of the exemptions of 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 tion under single tax. "Also we put the proposition ig) this way, that single tax is bound to come and the cities that get Into the band wagon first get the advantage, because they at tract new Industries to them. And strange to aay, wo had th.e real estate oxchance with us there before, the end of the cam paign. Of. course, m. minority of the Heal Estate exchange organized to oppose us, end called the organization, tlo 'Tax payers Protective association: ' There was also a lot of cry against us during the campaign, by those who said single fax was a proposition to con fiscate the land," continued tho speaker. "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." Pivnern Pny, Tho taxes of 6,pOT people, ot Pueblo were reduced through tho Introduction of the single tax, according- to Mr. Knapp, and of the property owners whose taxes were actually Increased, 96 per cent were nori , residents holding vacant .land In Pueblo waiting until Pueblo Industries would liave to buy them at groat profit to the. noiaer. He pointed out tho impossibility of col lecting taxes of personal property ac cording to the old system and said that Friday and Saturday Positively The Last 2 Days of Our Glean Sweep Sale W'o an clnK to wind up our grcnt snlo Friday nnd Saturday, mid wc urge you to como nnd supply yourself.

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 the courts. anyway.
