They may pay more or less than this "average taxpayer," but they do pay, and government extravagance Is therefore a matter of direct concern to them. If "Average Taxpayer" pays as much in the last half of the year as in the first, his direct taxes will approach one-tenth of his income. But everybody who does any thinking at all knows that visible taxes are only part of the burden. There are hidden taxes on everything one buys. Probably estimates that average taxpayers have to pay some 20 per cent of their income to government in one way or another are not far off. When a man buys something he wants UL gets value received in the things he buys. Similarly he should also get his money's worth for what he buys in the way of government. The question always is, Does he get it? HODGEPODGE Webster—A stew of rations Ingredients J a mixture. J'HKttK WAS AN airplane flying over town Tuesday, taking passengers at a *1 per.

There are other matters in which the checkers are liable to make mistakes. In the course of his opinion- In the Frank ouster case, tried <ln this city a couple of years ago, Judge Clock said: "As to whether or not there were wrongful transfers or charges against the wrong fund in this case may well stiH be a question. The budget law does not say how the fact of wrongful transfer shall be determined. The fact that 'state checkers (as they are commonly known) said that some items were wrong transfers does not, as a matter of law, make it so. It was their judgment in the matter, which judgment was disputed by the city officials, and in each and every instance the items complained of were subject to reasonable dispute."

Of course these checkers must do something to justify the tremendous Increase of the cost of these audits.

The general THE MOVIES By T. H. C. Edls ° m ' , So now. in round figures, the state takes ^50,000,000 from the people's pockets to run the state government, whereas in Turner's time it took only ?20,000,000. For reasoning persons this record is inescapable. This fail it will be exposed and attacked in scores of republican newspapers and in hundreds of republican campaign speeches AY ill the democrats boldly meet the challenge 'limit the truth, and defend the increase on tne ground that the people get back value received for every dollar they pay in taxes. Will the republicans even so much us hint that tax- Payers get anything back? What an opportunity for a real statesmen's debate. But the chances are against it It wouldn't be politics. Instead the republicans will doubtless play up nothing but the increase, and the democrats, instead of showing thai the extra money is well spent, will make Ji mountain out of the molehill of a few mills off on the state levy (see Governor Kraschel's ];)« week's preliminary announcement— pure, traditional politics), and the debate will be on the level of street stuff, more's the pity.
