Such U the Allusion Plncetl Upon the fltntntrs In nehnlf of Tax ntlnn lr Chnlrmnn of In TratiKntlnn rmmlttee. "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 sales." 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 goods." 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. TWO BIG BUILDINGS BURN AT MANCHESTER, N. H. MANCHESTER, N.
