Our Junior Representative Gives His
Ideas on Needed Legislation
Editor Star: I fully agree with you
when you said the legislature should
be careful in enacting laws at the
coming session. As we have strength
and vision wq should have community
of purpose and action to meet the
conditions set before us lest they
j& slip away fromus. Two of the most
, vital conditions are money and labor.
' The national government is helping us
1 to help ourselves by appropriating
large sums of money to the states for
reads, conditioned that each state
raise equal-amounts as apportioned
to them, tomeet this' condition. I do
not think we need so many new laws,
but rather amending and abolishing
some of our present ones. My ex ex-.
. ex-. perience in county work has convinc convinced
ed convinced me that some of our revenue laws
are very bad. No honest man ob objects
jects objects to paying a reasonable tax, but
he does object to paying; taxes on a

fair valuation of his property, while
the dishonest man and the dodger in
ameasure goes free. Our present rev-
; enue system Tmakes this inequality
possible. We do not need higher taxes,
but equality, in valuations. We need
a system that would work out a 100
per cerft valuation and a proportion proportionate
ate proportionate reduction in millage. I make the
assertion that enough taxpayers could
refuse to pay their taxes to stop the
wheels of state and county govern government.
ment. government. Have we men who. do not pay
, a tax and still remain in possession
of their property? Yes, there are
cases of this kind. Oh, you say,- sell
his property. That has" been done.
Tax certificates stand against it; he
stays in possession and bids' defiance
to the law. Can it be remedied ? Yes,
and I favor 'doing it by, amending the
law to the extent of sellfng enough
, of his property to pay his taxes the
sheriff putting the purchaser in pos possession
session possession and the state making-him a
deed, thus eliminating tax certificates.
I favor laws that would "equalize and
standardize values on property once
every two years. The labor problem
should have careful attention. Chang Changed
ed Changed conditions makes it necessary to
change the law to meet the conditions.
The fact that Congress has made
large appropriations to the states for
road purposes necessitates the statu
or counties raising an equal amount.
I note Georgia, Alabama, and the
,tjJJarolinas are strongly, advocating
'bonding the states to raise money to
meet the federal appropriation, and
build a system of state highways.
Tnls plan looks goodo me, Of course
we would have to amend the constitu-
. tion to issue bonds for road purposes.
I am strongly in favor of abolishing
the convict lease system. We need
and. must have these convicts to do
reasonable labor on the roads. ,1 must
add here that we must stamp our
. condemnation upon overwork or abuse
of these unfortunates.
I favor a. law compelling bonded of officers
ficers officers makings their bonds in reliable
security companies. V
v I favor memorializing Congress to
create a. national game preserve of a
portion of the national forest of thisi
county. In this, I believe, I will suc succeed.
ceed. succeed. I also favor a very strict game
law, one that the all the year hunter,
must respect.
I am favorable to a constitutional!
convention and re-apportionment. Our
present constitution has 'been amend amended
ed amended till it is frazzled and yet does not
meet our needs. x
V I am not yet favorable to the bank
guarantee law as advocated by some.

However, may change my mind.
I believe there should be a consti consti-'
' consti-' tutional amendment submitted to the
people on woman's suffrage.
I believe we need other changes in
s the laws, but can't, mention them here.
J beg for co-operation, advice and
. suggestion from the people. I mean
tr give you the best in me.

Mrs. J. B. Carlisle has received the
following letter from her son, Frank,
who left here with Company A, and

corner of France:
' Flavigny, France, Feb. 6.
My dearest Mother: Your long look looked
ed looked for letters 'received yesterday.
They are the first messages I've had
from home since I've been over here.
You ask about the weather conditions
herei When we first came the weather
was awful; it rained all the time, but
it is better now. Altho there has
been for three weeks several inches
of snow on the ground, it really is not
very cold.
I am feeling fine. I was sick in
bed one day and a French girl was
very kind and attentive and brought
my meals up to me.
The French people are very good
and, appreciative, but in many ways,
I am sorry to say, take Advantage of
the Americans; charge them two
prices for everything, and they have
stopped our big trucks from running
because they say Jthey are wearing
their roads out. I am writing this
letter in the house of a good old
French lady. She lived in the United
States thirty years ago and I enjoy
talking with her.
You express the wish that I might
return "heart whole and fancy free."
I see many pretty girls here, but you
need not worry, mother dear, about
mc losing my heart over .here, for al although
though although I am many miles away my
heart is still in the dear old U. S. A.
Give niy love to all at home and to
my friends and tell them I would be
glad to know that I am remembered
by them. Remember me to Mr. Ben Benjamin
jamin Benjamin and Mr. Leaverigood at the Star
office. I am with a company of New
Jersey boys who did good .fighting at
the front, good men all of them. .With
love to all.

way highway robbery.. t Itwas indeed a heavy
charge and no stranger could be
blamed for thinking it unreasonable.

However, the driver of the car had
driven his big auto down to the sta-

ion, waited a while and returned

with only one passenger. He made
no money on the transaction and if

he had charged less he would have

lost. The matter of transportation

between the union station and tht

business center is an exasperating
one, and makes trouble for every

body. The council should pass an

ordinance to the effect that autoes
for hire that meet;the trains should

carry a sign announcing their rates in

plain sight, so that a man taking a

car for a short ride would not be an

gered to find himself paying what he

believes is an extortionate charge.

conditions we don't believe an auto

less. ; '':
