Knickerbocker lieutenant governor Parrot s paper the be Porter Wujs the Register says the opinion is becoming still More Godfry that t be Ort and most Espen Sive scandal connected with Iowa s government is invoked in the new Cen sus of the state certain it is hat the extra session of the legislature should investigate the scandal in such a Thor Ough manner As to expose All the corruption and Lead to the punishment of those who were responsible for it. The investigation of that scandal is at least As necessary As the revision of the have no idea what the scandal referred to is but there is a need we think for the re Cirion of the Law under Winch our state census arc taken. It is too comprehensive. The National census taken every ten years covers every Cote Eiva tile thing in regard to productions agricultural mechanical i mining manufacturing and we have been trying to do Lor the state just what the United states is dodos or the nation. The National census is taken by men selected directly for tie work. The state census is taken by the township assessors some of them not especially qualified and the result is that months of Liuio and a Large Force of employees Are required to Complete and Consoli Date the returns. Tie state census was taken by tic assessors Early in 1s95, and the crop statistics were for the year 1s94 we Are now in the year 1s9t, and the census coat dilation is not yet published or at least we have not seen a copy of it. When it does appear a Luric portion of it will undoubtedly be devoted to agricultural statistics for the year 1s9j. Of what value will they be now in View of tic fact that we have produced two crops and Are on the Way with the third since the statistics were gathered and what is True of farm products is True of every other line of information gathered. By the time the work a issued every statement in it is two or three years old the expense to the stale of gathering the consolidating them for publication and printing and binding will undoubtedly be Over and Good Deal of it is absolutely wasted because of the time consumed in issuing the work. We already have crop reports gathered by two different agencies the weather and crop service and by the state agricultural society. They Are gathered consolidated and published within a few weeks after the crop season closes and serve All needed Pur poses and at the same time arc fresh and seasonable. To be sure they arc consolidated reports but that is practically All that is necessary. So we think our state census Law de. It would however be important so i far As tic completion of the code is i concerned 1 hardly Biuk a lick for j Bill will be brought Uji. But in it is in Ali likelihood it will to should be changed to a arcs with present conditions and should Only cover mat ters of population leaving out entirely every other subject now included in the enumeration and requiring the publication of whatever is taken the same year then the statistics would be fresh and of some value and the expense would be Cut Down to reasonable limits. Iowa state Register. A Revenue measure will be Poneot the first thin sri to attract the attention of o i the legislature and this is a Meas arc j that will touch almost every interest in the state. The fact is As our revenues Aie now raised the Man with property exclusive of Coney pays the tas the Man with moneys Aud credits evades paying tax it has grown to be thought no wrung to he about the j amount of a Man s property when he is being Abst used in fact it seems lobe i regarded As a kind of virtue. The i result is that men Are constantly cover ing up their assessable property where they can and throwing the Burden up on the men who Carnot conceal their property. The men with moneys and i credits Are Rich men generally who con j j tool legislation private of t of v. J a Chest can a Effort to i place their institutions under the control of the Law the men with moneys and credits succeed in manipulating the Revenue Laws to suit themselves whether this will be done the to Ming Winter or not depends upon the press ure brought to Bear upon the members of the legislature by their constituent it is the feeling of any that in the levying of Tases a Sharp distinction should be made Between the various corporations doing business in our state. There arc those where the Stock is widely distributed and owned by poor people or people of very moderate Means As in the building and loan associations and those where the Stock is owned and controlled by a few wealthy men As in some of the other organizations. It is clearly to be seen that the taxing of the building and loan association would drive it out of Busi Ness and would de an unjust Audun fair measure whereas the Large Capi Tal invested in other concerns might very properly be reasonably taxed. To o ship Pali before the commercial Exchange a few evenings ago state auditor Mccarthy commenting upon the difference to the valuation set upon property by assessors in different parts of the state gave the following he said Are assessed in Carroll county at per head in Cass county a per head in Bucana county at per head id Lino Slu per head in Louisa at 810 93 per head in Winnebago at 81 11 per head in Van Burn at 510 54 per head. The lowest valuation set upon cattle in any county in the state is 11 per Bead Anu the highest at per head. The same holds Good of horses. The lowest valuation upon in any county to the state u s3 a head and the highest valuation a head. These figures Resposs the Absurdity of the present sys tem of assessing property in this state for auditor Mccarthy s paper wins Lucid in every respect and shows him to be not Only a keeper of accounts but a thinker As Well it a few Good things.

F 1.00, our Des Moines letter. Before the of the weekly see the nest Des Moines letter the extra session of the legislature of Iowa will be convened and let us Trust at work. What agitates both the solons and the Public mind at this time is the question what will be done at this session it is useless to talk of no new legislation simply because a Resolution to stick to the code work May be adopted for be it remembered the code u the Law and any Chango in the code will be a change in the Laws. When the various chapters and sections of the code come no for discussion change and adoption it will be possible to introduce anything not in the form of a new Hiil but As an amendment to the code. This opens the to any new legislation that May be desired.
