THE GRANT COUNTY NEWS,
January 'J 2, IS!) I.
Let thosu people who tliink 1 1 to
killing or the Indians hiicIi 11 Iiur

law: "Ho that drnwotli tliu sword

Suppose, for u cluing", eonrcM
should ilrop politics for awhile. imd
adopt u little lobulation for tin)
bunt-lit of the eiiinilry at large.
AVe aiippou that tlii is an iinjKW
.nihility, lint all tint wuui; it would
bo : mighty good tiling to do, and
n tiling that would add much to
the popularity of tliu individual
members' who could Mtt'eeed in
bringing It about.
It is now being charged that
iiitoicy is the factor that is to do
tcrmino whir shall succeed Mr.
Kvnrts of New York in the L'nited
States Senate. Tlnit would cer
tainly he nothing now. Money
has been making senators for nunc
years and will probably continue
to do so until tlio Mutators aie
elected by a direct volu if the peo
ple, as they will bo in the course
There Ih a growing class in tliis
country which will have to be
squelched by the people or they
will ero long became strong enough
to squelch the people in fact in
many places they havo neerly suc
ceeded in doing it already. The
class referred to is the professional
olliee holder; and the newspapers
of the country are largely respon
sible for the great power exercised
by this class. According to the
urgument of tho average editor thu
longer a man holds olliee thu lon
ger ho ought to hold olliee, and
carried to its logical conclusion it
would give us an olliee holding ar
istocracy that would eventually be
come as powerful as tho nobles of
Europe were in feudal times.
Such logic is directly contrary to
the ideas of the founders of this
government. There is not today
a man holding a public olliee, high
or low, whoso removal would in
the slightest degree in
jure the interests of the country.
In a government of the people, as
this was intended to be, rotation in
oflien means everything that a
healthy circulation of the blood
docs to the individual human be
Governor l'eunoyer, in deliver
ing Ids message to the Legislature,
commences by giving a table of
the state's indebtedness which
shows that on January I, 1.SS7,
the principal and interest amount
ed, to S1KV-! I7.M. n .(miliary I,
IS'JI, the indebtedness, principal
and interest, is only SVI.'lo.Jlo.
Tho money for tho payment of the
indebtedness now e.isting is in
tho treasury, and the Male of One
gou is practically free from debt.
He takes up the matter of i.swif
ment and taxation ami says: One
of the niot important uiutliri to
imgago your attention is the abso
lute necessity of a thorough and
in sniiie respects a radical change
in our laws relative to ansesninent
and taxation. lYoviMcii should
also be made by which thu tlnto
revenue could be easily rained di
rectly from the people, entirely in
dependent of county taxation.
This would prevent that condition
of airairs which now prompts a
low assossnlent in each county, in
order to prevent a juel diaro of
state taxation, and would aUo ob
viate the necessity of a state board
of equalization. A hiillieient state
revenue, independent of any coun
ty levy, could easily bo hcoured by
requiring to bo paid in tho state
treasury n poll tax of 2 on every
jnale person over twenty ono years
of age, u gradual income tax on
ull incomes exceeding S1000, and
a tax upon all gross receipts of ex
press, telegraph, telephone and In
surance companies, The exemp
tion now allowed by law to every
householder is apparently a rea
sonable one, and that provision
which requires the taxation loaucil
on mortgages to bu made in the
county where it is so loaned is a ,'
lust one. In eoneluston ho savs: '
