Prohibition Porlia|)s, siiys Waller Li|i|mmnn, 'whose opinions usually prove worthy r bf •attention, the lime is coming when .in some parts of this country UK; strongest demand for modification of 'prohibition will come from the best friends of temperance. A situation is developing in New- York and some other states, he points out, under which those who object to prohibition only because of its interference with their tasto for alcoholic .'.",i-~-bcvcrages have lillle reason for further complaint. There is no scarcity .:",',• of liquor in most of America's big " % cities, and many small communities are' equally well supplied. Furthermore priccs t if one lias not too delicate a taste, ar.e reasonable. J;' We therefore find n situation which, • "to the toper, is fairly satisfactory, as " *of course it also is to those who are .deriving fancy profits from the illegal traffic. To the citizen, however, who whatever' his. views on outright prohibition recognizes that'regulation of the'"alcohol, trade is essential to the [itiblic welfare, who objects, to being taxed in the apparent interest of a tremendous business that pays no taxes, who shudders at the demoralization of police and oilier public agencies, it is far from satisfactory, V: r " L Personal Properly Tax 7t appeal-supine injustice may linve ""been done the present slierifi' and col- .,_ lector by tlie article on ]>crsoiial tax ... delinquency in the Courier News a few --days RKO which gave the impression • that no taxes were paid last \;car on more than a normal proportion of the • !>crsonal property in the county. ."-' A check of the records for a few ,. - years back shows that while more than ... 30 per cent of tlic personal properly taxes payable last year were uncolled- " ed, the record was slightly better titan the average for the three or four years preceding. The present collector, it np- • pears, has done a little better than •••- his immediate predecessor. The fact, however, that last year's less than 70 per cent collection was by no means an exceptionally poor one ..,-- only emphasizes the need for more ef- feclive methods. Our schools and our local governments cannot function without revenue. When a, large part of our taxable properly is jwi'inittcd to pay nothing it follows either that our public institutions must .sull'er for lack of funds or the rest of the property must carry more thiui its .proportionate burden. As long a« we rely ii]xm taxation of personal property to furnish an important part of the money needed for schools and other public services payment of such taxes should be compelled. It is no argument that suits for the collection of delinquent personal taxe.') would in many instances cost more than they would produce. If taxpayers knew thai such suits would follow failure to pay then: would be little delinquency. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark M'cc of Lynchuigs for Iwo Successive: Years.
