WISCONSIN REMITS TAXES.
Increase In Railroad Assessmedt Sun-
pliea All Funds Necessary.
Madison, Wis., Oct. 23. All the
state taxes, with the exception of the
school tax, which was reduced to half
of one mill, were remitted today by tbe
state board of assessors. There is al
ready so mnch money in tbe state treas
ury that none of the officials know
what to do with it.
With the prospect of more than 12.-
500,000 coming in from this year's
taxes, State Treasurer Kempf threw np
bis bands in despair and said there was
no way to spend it. Accordingly Gov
ernor Davidson, Secretary of State
Homer and Mr. Kempf met todav and
decided to remit the taxes.
The railroads are foot ins the hilla.
That, in the main, is the reason for the
action today, tha first time such a
sweeping move has been made in the
history of the state. It i one of the
results of Senator -LaFollette'e long
fight when he was in the eovernnr'a
chair. Under the new ad valorem law
the roads pay about $2,000,000 annu
