By A. H. Bonnstettcr. Statehouse, Des Moines, Mar. 27— In my last letter I said that on Friday, March 20, the Proponents of the assessor bill, through parllmentary tactics, had succeeded in avoiding Indefinite postponement for further consideration. This placed the House in a position to hold a club over the Senate as regarded passage of the proposed Income tax law. Last Wednesday, however, the Senate passed the Income <tax bill, first tacking on to it some amendments, among which was the assessor bill, as originally passed by the Senate. Since the House had already defeated the assessor bill, the Senate's action was meant to force the House to give favorable reconsideration to the measure or assume blame for failure of the entire tax revision program. This irritated House opponents of the Assessor bill, and consequently the bill was drawn out on the Chamber's floor again Thursday morning, and after much parllmentary wrang ling reconsideration was definitely postponed. This was tragedy so far as the tax revision program Is concerned, and it may force legislators to go home without having effected material tax relief. I worked consistantly to keep the assessor bill alive. The measure was. not what I wanted, but I felt that it could' be amended to remove objectlonal features and still retain the merits. When I came to Dee Moines I was much opposed to anything that would tend to change the present assessing system, but after being placed in a position where I was compelled to study the prrposltlon I reluctantly began to realize the necessity of securing a method whereby a more uniform levy on property according to valuation could be made and the evils o£ the present system eliminated. Briefly here is what I found; 1. The property of farmers anc rural town home owners is assessed at from fifl to 65 per cent of Its fai value. 2. Many Instances can be founc where city property is assessed ni higher than 10, 15, 11:8, or 20 per cen of Its value. 3. Much property is not assesset at all. 4. Under the present system the farmers pay 69 per cent of all state taxes because they are unable t hide their property. Many more reasons could be given but sufficient to say a correctiv measure could have been enacted 1 NEWS .. of Our ..

The Des Moines association welcomes del- Ir °m the 98 counties with both" proponents and opponents ha nit been so arbitrary In their de mands. If the tax revision program falls these gentlemen must shoulde the blame. The Senate passed S. F. No. 5 Monday. This bill proposed to re duce the numb'tr of county supei visors to three in each county. Th bill does not appear to be popular i the House, and members of th county and township organizatio committee hope to posti,one It In definitely when v the measure come before them. My reactions are similar to tha of other members of the committee I feel that If the people of Kossut want-three supervisors they alread have the machinery to so decide b popular vote, Besides, the state aud tor's report does not indicate tha here would be any economy in th proposed change. I notice that an article appearin In -the home papers "complimented me on my position In the salary cu of the teachers at West Bend. ever, I do take exception to certai portions of it. In this article a stat ment was made that I am instiga ing a probe- of he teachers' lobb at the statehouse. That statemen Is false. I never made it. Another portion of the artic gives a list of the teachers' tiam< and a false report of the salarie on which -the 10 per cent cut Is based. The author of the article is known to me. It was written with the Idea of creating public sympathy for the teachers. I am of the opinion, however, that if the public Is long on sympathy the taxpayers will and should receive first consideration. prunes! the " Dan on hls lncome A " d m H ° use ' . E. S.
