The Parmll Plan Petty politics scorns to luivo s tlie doom of the most coiihlniclivo of legislation that lias come Iji'fore mi Arkansas legislature in a food many years. Govomor 1'arncil'^ plan for the reorganization of ' the state government, a plftu that would Imve saved the people of this state millions in reduced overhead and increased eM'iciency, has been killed, chiefly, it apjwars, because some members of the legislature didn't like Home oilier tilings the governor has done, but also, ami it is impossible to measure the part played by this latter factor, because adoption of the plan would have made it a whole lot mora difficult to play politics with the public's money. The cry thai was raised against the proposal as undemocratic and lending toward dictatorship was utlcr nonsense. The kind of democracy Arkansas isinow enjoying is self-defeating. Qnli'nli/a- tior, both 'of power and responsibility in a few officers chosen by the people is the nearest approach to real democracy practicable in a modern state. The present long ballot and cumbrous and poorly integrated. governmental machinery make it impossible for the voter either to choose his public em- ployes intelligently or to fix responsibility for their actions after they are ehcted. Governor Parnell's program would have simplified the voter's problem at the polls, and made it easy for him to know where to give blame or praise for official acts.. .. ^ -*iH*it4*«w"ita.ys of Thomas''Jefferson, whose honored memory is badly abused by present day politicians, government was. a simple affair. Jefferson wanted to keep it so. Bui in this day and age all units of government, from municipality and county to state and nation, are besieged with demands for a variety of public services thai would have caused the founding fallur.s to blink and then some. Arkansas alone has boards and bureaus and special services of a hundred kinds with personnel enough to man the federal government of George Washington's day, and probably the governments of the thirteen original states as well. Most of these governmental services were created to serve a worthwhile purpose. Most of the services they wcra intended to per- TUKSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1001 form are needed. We do not urge their elimination. Uut unless we arc to be strangled with taxation it is necessary that a way be found to operate those governmental agencies with a degree of efficiency that will guarantee us a proper return fur the money they cost, At present we have a hopeless jumble of mor: or less unrelated, overlapping, ineffective public services, lilted with dead wood,, failing to function effectively, and costing too much to maintain. Govern-)! 1 1'arnell proposed to bring order out of chiios, to eliminate His nonessential, to provide control adequate to insure ix-aMJiiab!e efficiency, and to reduce costs. Virginia lias done it, Pennsylvania is doing it, many other states are working along constructive lines to make llii-ir ^UYCM iimenls really competent and respon.-ible servants of their peoples. Arkansas needs it as much as any, and it is discouraging to have tlie lirsI well considered cll'orl squashed amid a lot of legislative noise and foolishness. By George Clark Tnxcs Thcr.' U ar.utlicr :nt;conceptlon niui tlial is with relation I'.- tp.xts. Every bill has tack of It money In some form. It ulil provide someone with ft Jol>—it ',\ill pay sonic fellow Unit lias a jcl> more inot:ty. 11 \vll! give sonic branch of the nov- rrnmcnt "'ore money to spend. It will regulate something providing [or fees nnd what not. Very seldom do ',vc ever tee any bill providing for :\ saving of muiicy, very seldom do we see u bill providing To: 1 tile reduction of the tnx burden of tlie people. There is nlso tlie common misconception that nil v.-e to do to raise money Is to pass ft Itiw levying laxrs 0:1 something, provide for a bond iMnie. or seek out some new tliinj to tax. Now when it comes to bond issues the legislature can pass them and the governor can sign them until they are nil blue In the face. But bonds to be any good musl be sold and . tlie first thing (he buyer nsks Is where lire you Boiny lo get the money lo pay them. Arkansas tool; a ronvaru s'lep a few years (130 nhcnd ol all other states and floated highway notes against our gasoline tax revenues. Our tax is rive cents j\ gallon nnri the tax and htshvvny building program have been singularly successful. It seems loo easy to be true and the rrsult, Is that we have half n Uoicen bills in the legislature providing for additional gasoline tax increases designed to pay off everything from city Improvement districts to mortgages on county bridges. Obviously such laws uill break the camel's back. We nro ridin;,' liic gasoline horse no\v and we wuiiiu urge every lann:i lo consider very carefully any increase o[ g.isoiine taxes unless you are sure the farmer will bcne- IU. fm 1 after nil you fellows own more than half the cars in tile itnle and use half the gf.snline. It 13 the same with (obacco taxes, cold drink luxes tin;', everything cisf. Some fellow gets an iu'ea that lie wonts to bring a little political swag back home. He introduces a bill to provide for it and then gels behind another bill to put- on another tax to raise the money. —Arkansas Farmer.
