So complicated has It become that the ordinary common sense upon which Americans have been wont to rely finds Itself often at a loss t6r wise condpcL The treatment of the ereat actlvilities. which have to be regulated Is a scientiflc treatment.

By associa,tion men can drive a better bargain., Thus is society Justified. To make progress we must live more efficiently. This is good sensb and good business. Anything that in terferes with this idea delays our civic progress. The ntrengtb of the commission plan is that the people are not diverted from the main issue. To se'ect wise, honest and efficient men. Is their sole concern. The details they leave to them. Always requiring the fullest .knowledge of affairs so that their opinions may be based on facts.

Topeka, }Kas., Nov. 20 .-r(Speclal) A recent deqislon of the supreme court in a suit j against the Uxing officers Sumner county brought by the inta Fe | railroad company promises cause county clerks and treasurers uch trouble and work In collecting 1907 taxes and perhaps will be responsible for a series of litigations regarding! railroad taxes In a number of counti^. In many counUes of the state, it has been the i custom for years past for county clerks to observe the valuations as fixed by tbe county boards of eqiialixation Instead of the state board changing the levy for state purposes so as to iraise the amount of money required for state purposes without making a'corresponding change In the assessed valuation. The supreme court has held that this practice is illegal. In the Sumner county case the state board of iequalizatlon raised the valuations of Sands, lots and personal prop erty as fixed by the county board but did not change the valuation of railroad prorierty. In effect, the supreme court is that the proper relationship did not exist between the valuations of lands, iiersonal property and railroads, as fixed by the county board. Instead of changing all valuatfons, the Sumner county authorities changed the rate of taxation but made a uniform levy against all classes «or property. The Santa Fe Railroad company claimed that this practice caused it to pay too much state tax and took the matter to court. The court holds for the railroad company. Many counties ha«« followed the same system in iDak Ink up their 1907 tax rolls aad it is vefry probable that the railroads will balk at paying taxes at the same rate as other i property owners in counties where (be state board did not change the valuation of railroad property hut raised the valuation of other property. The same rule will hold good, only the other way In cases where the vsiluatlo.its of lands and personal property were decreased by the state board and railroad valuations left undisturbed. Only In these latter cases it will be Individuals who are over taxed (or state purposes and not railroads. As the tax rolls are already made up and tax I paying has commenced members or Mie state lax commission look for much confusion over the matter. It may result in a failure to collect all the state taxes levied. When tbe new tax law is in full operation next year connty clerks will be compelled to make up tax rolls on ^ the basis of valuatiohs as fixed by the state board but this .rear the tax commission Is powerless. *'..t flE WSATniL Forccait far lunat—fMiy «!••• dy aad cakkr ta^kti Tharaday. fair.

Nov. 20.— An indication of the wrath of the "home rulers' over the prohibition policy of the dem- oratic party In the state Is shown by the following telegram sent to State Senatorl Hamburger by M.

Dry After Jaaaary 1, 1909: Montgomery. Ala.* Nov. 20. —^Unprecedented scenes were enacted in the senate chamber of the historical cap- Itol of Alabama today, when the statutory prohibition bill was passed. Women and children thronged the cor ridors ind galleries and even usurped the sanctity of the floor Itself, pushing the senators from their seats and giving vent to their enthusiasm by shouts and cheers that echoed and re-echoed through the building. Senators who opposed the bill were hissed down when dhey arose to speak against the measui'e.

This does not include all the Incorporated companies. Railroad, foreign insurance, telegraph, telephone, pipelines, sleeping cars, street railway electric lines, banks and trust companies are excluded. There are thirty-five interrogator- es in the circulars being prepared, and some of these are sub-divided. Tbey ask the general questions such as the name of the company, the names of the officials, and the capital stock and then dig deeper. They ask questions regarding the value of the stock, the numl>er of shares - issued, the market value, what was given in exchange for the stock, what the floating debt amounts to. the amount of taxes paid In Kansas and the amount nid In other states in past years, and n dozen other questions which will tend to give an insight into the business and property of the several comimnles.

The commission is engaged in a study of the relative burdens of taxation borne by the dlfllerent classes of property in Kansas, and to that end the Information asked ia very important and necessary. "The primary principle of tbe new law on assessment and taxation is. that each kind of property shall bear its fair and equitable proiwrtion of taxes; no more, no less; and it is hoped and expected that the requesth uf the Commission for the desired information will be cheerfully and promptly complied with.' The commission is given authority to request this Information under chapter 408 of the laws of 1907. Section 12 of this chapter reads: •That It shall be the duty of the Commission and It shall have tbe power and authority to require individuals, partnerships, companies, associations. Joint stock companies and corporations to furnish information concerning their capital, funded or bonded debts, current assets and liabilities, value of property, earning?, operating and other expenses, taxes and other charges, and all other facts which may be needed and desirable to enable the commissioner to ascertain the value of the relative burdens borne by all kinds of property in the State."

' , '-il Washington, Nov. • 20. .^President Roosevelt, at last, has taken steps to head off the third term I boom. Fed eral officials are l>etng warned quit ta'klng third term ; themselves, and to discourage it wherever they can. In connection with this move the administration has .decided upon a policy that no federal jofficer shall go to the next Republican national convention as a delegate.; This information comes j from an ah-° s<:lutely reliable - source.' It will no doubt cause much surprise among the politicians. Those opposed to the president will be surprised, l>ecanse tfcey have felt recently that the president was laying plans to run again. To his friends the snrpriss will be over the method which the president has adopted to check his boom. They expected him to make another public declaration. The President realizes that some of tbe most persistent third term hoom ers are federal office holers or poll ticfans who are seeking [favor at the White House. To a Weitem senator a few days ago the president said "I am not being fooled by this clamor." But he went no further. Clamor Mutt Ceaac. Within the past - ten \ days third term talk has been renewed with great energy an over the coimtry. It arose over the report that the preat- dent was iao anxious to iake the New York delegation away from Governor Hughes that he would, i if necessary, stand for another noihlnatlon hnm- self. Federal appointees, big and little, throughout the country, regard eti this as a tip that the president was out after the Job once more, and they Immediately resumed their third term talk In a loud tone of voice. Friends of the president In the out- lylns district who had taken the president at his word and were helping to line things up in their states for Taft notified the Wlhlte House that no head way could be made for Taft as long as the President's own appointees were talking third term so vociferously. This moved the president to action He Immediately called off Prank Hitchcock, first assistant postmaster general, who has been the most relentless third term boomer of the whole bunch. Hitchcock waa warned to quit booming the president and to discourage the postmasters of the oonntry from doing so. In fact the order was peremptory that postmasters who were looking for reappointment would do their own cause no good by third term talk. Secretary of tbe Interior Garfield has an army of employes under his control out in the jJe'd. They have been shoutins third term. Mr. Garfield ;s now quietly ndtifying them that it Is the president's wish for them to cease such talk. Attorney General Bonaparte, who also has a large force of subordinates In tbe field, including all the United States marshals and district attorneys.
