Patterson Home from the Legislature. Senator George W. Patterson called n Algona friends last Thursday and topped at the Upper Des Molnes-Re- )ublican office for a few minutes. Sentor Patterson spent his legislative va- atlon at home on his farm east ot Burt. He has been one of the busiest men in the state of Iowa for the past ighteen months, serving on the state ax revision committee, which laid out i program recommended to the legis- ature to be put upon the statute books. Senator Patterson's pet theory of a tate income tax will doubtless become ncorporated into the new tax laws en- ctcd at this session, and it is hoped that the law may give some relief to the over-burdened property owners of Iowa. At any rate it looks as though the law would soon be put to the test in Iowa, and Senator Patterson's political fortunes will doubtless rise or fall according to the success of tho Income tax law in relieving the situation. Mr. Patterson is honest in his efforts to lower property taxes and. has given many montlis of study and hard work to the state without recompense other than his necessary expenses and the people of his district should give him full credit for his efforts in behalf of the taxpayers.
