There is no intention of oppresMng the people who have put their money Into fr^chises. We recognise that as in th¿, case of aîi lesitiniate busiaesa they benefit .not only themselves, but the coniraunity at large. If a franchise is worth very iittie, it should be iaxed .very iittie; but where the franchise is of g-reat value, it certainly should be heavily taxeé^tind the value is of course basesí upon the use of the city's or state's real estate. S^ch use of the public reai estate should not be' given without substantial returns, , returns cot only In the way of service to the public, which of course a street railway or a gas company gives, precisely as the proprietor of a grocery or drygoods store gives it, but also in the way of bearing a just share ■ ofthe burden, of taxation; again, precisely as the owner of the grocery or dry-.gocrtîs store bears his share the difference belnfT that a railroad company, for instance, owes infinitely more thaa the proprietor of a big business estabiish-ment does, to the real estate Itself. Oí course, his value differs greatly in different places. Wh^ere population Is dense, as In New York city, the real estate along which the tracks are laid on Broadway may be worth an immense amount for every lineal foot, exactly as the real <is,taie fronting this, portion of Broadivay is worth an Immense amount for every lineal foot. In sparsely settled districts, however, the value of the real estate of the railroad will diminish greatly. Jtist as the value of the realty through which it runs diminishes.  I am perfectly well aware that as Chief Justice Marshall says: "The er of taxation is the power o£ destruction." But this applies to every species of prppeny. "'.If. demago-gues or is-.ftsrant. ijiislJiçta... .s'te® ■ are 'misled by demagogues could succeed In destroying wealth, they would of course simply work rula of the entire comnaunlty. and first of all, of the unfortunates for ■^hom they profess to feel an especial lntcr€st. But the very existence of unti-'iBonins hostility to wealth should make us all the more careful in seeing that v,iaUh loes nothing to justify such hostility. We are the true friends of thö' àitti of mean's, «re are the true friends of the lawful corporate Interests which do good work for thô community, whfn we Insist that the man of means and the great corporation shall pay their full share of taxes and bear their fulî sharà of the rubllc burdens If this is «»one, then sooner or later will follow public recoraitian of the fact that It It done; and when there Is nv» legitímate basis for discontent, the American pubUe is sure sooner or later to cease tc feel discontent.  The legislature passed, and there is Eow before me, a bill for the taxation of franchises by ireatlnig them as realty. After watching the progress of this bill 1 became coavificed that tha opposition to it is[as less to Its particular festtires than to the general prln^ eipW'of ^laxlQg franchises In way: In other words, I became ¿oBvlaeed that any really effective- meastire of  thing, distinct from the other property of the ci^mpany. but should be treated a3 a nrcvstary incident to the tan- ^ gibte property and one to be consid-j ered in measuring th?* value of the Vihole property. The Nichols law In Ohio, which provides for the tasatin of certain kinds' of corporations, such as ' telegraph and telephone companies and the like, doing business in the public streets, proceeds along these line®, and has in practice been found to work admirably.  ^Under the blU before roe the assessment will bé levied by the local authorities. This would result in many cases in a dozen diilerent sets cf local authorities ass«ss.lng the value of d'lKer-.ent parts of the same franchise. It !s on every account far better that this assessment should' 'be delegated to the state auihoritie« who »'111 necessarily ascertain all the conditions affecting the franchise ■and obtain Information , which will enable theîn to judge of the value of the franchise, to the diSerent localities in which It Is exercised. The board of state tax commtesioners can collate the facts, compaxe coaidlttons and deteroiine values as a result of a wider range of .sbservation and experience tfca.n can be obtain«d by local officers, .and under them the system of assessment will tend to -produce justice, harmony and unifara^y. 'This'Is the eystem adopted ,''todeî~"îbe--.Hiçho-. las :. law ■ and it has worked practice.  the bi>ard of state t.'ix commîseîoners. and which shall further provide that from the tax thus levied for the benefit of each locality there «hall be deducted the lax now paid by the corporation In Question. Furthermore, as the time for as3cg.«lns the largest and wealthiest corporations, those of New York and Buffalo has pa&aed for this year, and as it will be preferable not to have th» pmasl country corporation."? taxef-I- bcfor<e the larger corporations of the citlrs are taxed. I suggest that the operation of the law be deferred until Oct. 1 of this year.  THEOrKiRE ROOSEVEI.T.  As soon as the me.ssage was read Senator EUswerth moved that the meti.-iase he printed and referred to the commiti;e on taxation. This was done after a ^^horl seyj^lon and the sénat» adjourned.

Mr. Peltner said the tax ctimmissioa er had not yet decided whether the tax of on the personal property  of William Waldorf Astor would stand or not. The case will probably to a decision in a week or so. Mr. Feltner said it looked as if the' com misisioners would allow the tax to stand.  Furthermore, the bill before me, fidls to take aecoiint of the fact .that, in a' very un-equal and irtegular way, many corpo-rations do already pay & certain, though usually an utterly Inadequate, sum in taxes. Sotne pay aothiag at all to the local mualcipaUUss; but others pay suTT-s varying from one to five per cent on their gross earnings.
