of the great revolution In that country,
Walter Pierce, Democratic candida'e
for governor, forcefully told en aud

Mr. Pierce denounced in plain words
the fact that millions of dol.ors bo-
longing to the well-to-do class are
tied up In tax-froo securities, while
the farmer and working man Is com
pelled to pay outrageous, taxes on
every particle of earthly gooda he
possesses. "The people should never
vote a bond issue ot any kind whatso
ever unless an emergency exlstB," he
stated, "because, bonds are tax free
securities and the wealthy class are
waiting to gobble them up and store
them away in bank vaults while tho
farmer and working man labor Inces
sently to pay the Interest on them."
