lax Increase Due
To Local Demands,
Coventor Says
State Levy on Farms Went Up
Only 21 Per Cent; Other
Taxes 58 Per Cent,
MeKelvie Asserts.
'Lincoln, Feb. 28. (Special.)
Responsibility for heavy increases m
taxation should be placed at the feet
of the city and county governments
and not on the state government, ac
cording to a message from Gov. S,
R; McKelvie, read today before both
branches of the leeislature,
."Of the total tax on farms for
1919, only 24 per cent went to the
otate" the message read, "while in
1920 it was reduced to 21 per cent
l"The percentage increase of state
tijx on farms was 28, while the per
centage increase ot other tax on
farms was 58 per cent. Only
10 per cent of the tax on resi
dences for 1919 went to the state,
w;lii le in 1920 it was reduced to 8
I tr cent. The increase of state tax
uji' residences was S per cent while
tile percentage increase of tax on
residences from other sources was 39.
IS Per Cent to State.
,"Of the total tax on business
holiscs for 1919, only 15 per cent
went to the state, while in 1920 t
was reduced to 12 per cent. The
percentage increase of state tax on
business houses was one-fifth, while
the percentage increase of other tax
oh business houses was 33.
"Briefly summarized, these fig
ures bear out the statement that I
previously made that state taxes are
relatively small, as compared wit hi
taxes mat are assessed ior me sup
port of other unrts'crr government,''
To gather these fibres. -the-'governor,
wrote to all the county clerks
in Nebraska and asked for figure's
showing the amount of taxes for
1919 and 1920 on eight representative
f4nns, three residences and three
business properties in each county.
Fifty-eight counties responded. Hat I.
paving, drainage and irrigation taxes,
which are local in origin, are not
used in compilation of the table.
Local Taxes Responsible.
"In short," the message reads, "the
increased taxes for the year 1920 are
accounted for largely by the levies
that have been made for local pur
poses. This is quite conclusively
shown in that the increases of other
txes over state taxes for 1920 was
more than 100 per cent.
' V I f the people understand these
facts, it will enable them to better
deal with the tax tfuestion by locat
ing responsibility where it Teally be
longs." i

The climatic climax, however,
came-with .the inaueuration of Mr.
Taft, when a blizzard howled out of
the north.'r crippling telegraphic
wires, stalling trains and utterly
spoiling an elaborate program. Thou
sands of "spectators waited in the
railway- cars in cold drifts miles
from Washington while Mr. Taft

75 years, if the historian will ignore
the more or less informal inaugura

Arthur and Roosevelt -for unexpired
terms. - 1 v -,
The fierce'nature of Washington's
weather gods lias led to many move
ments to change the inaugural date
the proponents of a later date being
Labout equal to those who believe
that the induction of the hew presi
dent and congress should follow
more closely the ' "verdict of the
polls.'.' Tradition, only, is responsi
ble for the maintenance of March 4
as the time for the ceremony, it is
said, a careful research of -legislative
records failing to reveal the spe
cific naming of that day.
' Two Theories for Date.
Two theories are .prevalent as to
the manner in which the-.presc.nt date
was selected: One is that the revo
lutionary. fathers, after, an exhaustive
computation, became convinced that
March 4 would notfa11 on Sunday
in any leap year,. Somebody evidently
erroneously ; evaluated their "x"
quantity in that case, for March 4
has come on Sunday three times
since Washington's inaugural in
New York.
The second theory is based on the
mii.utes of the first constitutional
convention where the delegates
(under date of September 13, 1788)
"did resolve unanimously . . . that
the first Wednesday in January . be
the day for appointing electors in the
several states; thaMhe first Wednes
day in February be the 'day ior the
electors to assemble in their re
spective states and vote for presi
dent, and that the first Wednesday
in March, iext, be the time and the
present seat of .congress, the place
for commencing' proceedings under'
said constitution. . .
- "The 'first Wednesday' in March,
next," happened to be the fourth,
according to those holding with the
second idea,, and. March 4. thence
forth, weather .'notwithstanding, has
been the day for "commencing pro
ceedings." ' . -'
