any shots during the rioting. The first

Such U the Allusion Plncetl Upon

ntlnn lr Chnlrmnn of In
"The present revetiue system of Ne
braska has few If an intelligent defed
ers anywhere In the state," Is ono of the
notable sentences In a report made to
the Nebraska State Pres association at
Lincoln, by Laurie J Quinby of Omaha,
chairman of a committee of the associa
tion, appointed a year ago to Investigate
the taxation system of the state and re
port It weaknesses. Tho committee sent
out batlots by the thousands Into the
state to men In all lines of business. The
ballots contained some twenty questions
on various phases of taxation In No
braska. It was from the results of this
balloting that Chairman Quinby drew his
Inference that there aro no Intelligent
supporters of tho present system In any
part of the state.
"Our revenue statutes, published In a
book of more than 120 pages, are a most
pitiable Jumble of Idiocies," continues
tho report, "the strict enforcement of
which would crush out of existence every
vestlgo of enterprise In the Btate, except
that of the foreclosing of mortgages and
the business that grows out of sheriff's
The Farmer's Vlerr.
The report pointed out tnat an amazing
number of farmers voted that farm
machinery should not be taxed while thsy
at the samo tlmo voted that a merchant's
goods should be taxed. "They failed to
see," said Quinby. "that when they vote
to tax the manufacturer or the merchant
they only vote to tax themselves, since
i tho tax Is Invariable added to tho price
of goods produced, and Is shifted onto
the farmer and all other consumers of
The report calls attention to tho clause
In Nebraska's constitution which ex
empts shade, timber and fruit trees from
taxation In order to encourage the grow
ing of fruit and timber in this pralrla
state. On this point the Quinby report
commented as follows: "Let It bo ob
served hero that If to exempt trees from
taxation will tend to produce orchards
and timber lands, why not the exemption
of industry of all kinds from taxation
encourage tho establishment of Industries
of nil kinds In this stato?"
Further the report showed 85 per cent
of those voting, to bo In favor of a state
Income and Inheritance tax. There was
almost an unanimous voU to tax the
market valuo of franchises.
The report recommended every sup
port to the proposed amendment to the
state constitution which seeks to give
the legislature moro discretion tn the
matter of taxation; it recommended a.
state tax commission; it recommended
that the power of granting exemptions
should not bo left with tho county as
sessor, but should be left to the courts;
It recommended that the legislature be
empowered to use some discretion as to
whether goods are to be taxed, when in
the hands of tho final consumer or in
tho hands of the merchant who expects
to sll It at a profit; it recommended
that tho statute providing that land
nhould be assessed erYory tour years
while other propertles.aro assessed every
year, should b repealed. This provision
the report denounced as an unjust dis
crimination in favor of the large land
holder, and against the enterprising
citizens. The report further recommended
law requiring each ownor of land to
make his own assessment fixing tho
value for purposes qt taxation. As a
penalty for falso estimates tho report
recommends that any Individual In the
stato or tho state Itself shall be em
powered to purchase tho land at tho
assessed valuo. The report recommended
that the levies bo mado on actual assessed
values Instead of on one-fifth the as
sessed value, and that the lovy bo re
duced accordingly. All personal property
taxes are recommended repealed by this
report. It recommended tho assessment
of franchises at market value as a step
In the direction of progressive legisla
tion. It Recommended a higher tax on
land values and tho elimination as far
as posslblo of taxes on Improvements.
