Mr. Hogan's Senate,committee on revenue held a meeting > this-'afternoon, before which appeared several gentlemen from Chicago .and other parts of tlie State,. w.ho' n> gave their views upon the proposed new revenue law as prepared by the late com- misson. Among those who addressed the committee was Hon. Chas.W. Thomas, of Belleville, a member of the late commission, who appeared upon invitation of Chairman Hogan. Mr. Thomas,Jn the course of his>rc-> marks, dealt very severely with the State Board of Equalization. He said that the primal object of the revenue law of 1872. was to reach the franchise and capital stock of corporations for. the purposes of taxation. For that purpose the State- Board of Equalization, had been created.

He gave figure's showing the total assessment ...made by the board of the capital stock , of railroads since 1872.' They showed the following assessment:, For 1878, $11,526,661; for 1874, -f 81,314,176 ; for 1875, 122,649,222; for 1676, $10,100.258; for 1877, nothing; for 1878, nothing; for 1879, nothing ;f or 1880, nothing; for 1881, nothing; for 1882, nothing; for 1888, nothing ; for 1884, nothing ; for 1885,- npthing; and for 1886, nothing. He pointed out that as soon as the vfcst litigation involving the constitutional right of the Stajp; 'JiatJ^been, .. deter-, mined'in favor. of the, State,' and the right to tax it was firmly established the board for some reason , not apparent on its record, ceased to assess that property. Not only, did it do this, but it has from year to year assessed the immense property of some of the leading .railroads at such a figure as to relieve them from two- thirds, of the taxes they Justly ought to pay. He cited one railroad that wasa«eessod in J886 at $5,519,478. Its common stock is $14,007,800, its preferred stock -is $3,479,500, its bonded debt $10,376,950 ;total, $27,053,250, or $46,718.64 a mile for each, of, its 582 .wiles. Its net earnings for 1886 were $3,553,410.09, or chinb, n and- iays^'he ''ought to be > of what i he was going, to .do whciv he gtA-mtrMW^mMm^fM- he -would, make'oniuiio in Chicago, and that : se,veralmpn)bex» of, .the gang " .....
