Spirit Lake Beacon (Newspaper) - August 30, 1907, Spirit Lake, Iowa Fri Day August 30 1907 a unfortunate decision the announcement of Hon w 35 Allison of his purpose to ask republicans of Iowa for a seventh term in the United states Senate Lias for the week past been the chief topic in state political discussion in the integrity of senator Allison there is widespread Confidence Pew men Are born with his peculiarity of temperament in the usual sense he is not a Leader of men he lacks aggressiveness lie is so conservative As to seen sometimes almost reactionary through forty years of congressional life however he has done his duty As he Lias seen it and for honorable living and Public usefulness he is entitled to the respect and Confidence of his state and nation senator Allison May be criticised for some things he has not done but Little criticism will Lodge against the things he has done in Public life men who say he has not had a Strong hold upon the people of his state reckon without knowledge or without Candor and yet with All such just judgment upon a longhand honorable personal and political record it is the opinion of this paper that in counselling him to run for a seventh term friends have seriously erred and in deciding to enter upon a contest senator Allison snakes the most grievous mistake of a and successful Public career he has reached that time of life when nature cries for release from onerous burdens and when failing Powers re Duce to narrow limits the capacity for great affairs at the expiration of his present term he will be past eighty years of age always of sound Man Hood and irreproachable habits he has been splendidly preserved physically past the usual allotment of life but by the hand of inexorable Fate he was near two years ago served with notice that he must inevitably reckon with unconquerable disease further tenure of office can add nothing to his Fame the people of Iowa have Given him All the distinction they can possibly be Stow what can it profit this great and Good Man to lash his failing ers beyond endurance in the desire to perform the measure of duty imposed upon his station As an obscure Sena Tor he could escape much of Public Burden but the Large responsibility incumbent upon his High rank will continually torture where once it afforded unspeakable colonel Bryan thinks he sees a Light he has been looking for democratic Opportunity to assail the administration in the interest of the Campaign next year the president last week stated in effect that most effective corporation regulation would come from National rather than state action a proposition eminently reasonable but Bryan assumes he can make the coun try shiver by denouncing Roosevelt As an enemy to states rights and an advocate of dangerous centralization the incident simply indicates the usual hard Luck of the democracy in its search for popular issues Taft Stock has gone booming since the Columbus speech and the economist refuses to be comforted in reporting1 the Lynching of Loris Liffgens Over in Nebraska the papers say lie was Hung to a railway Bridge also to an Oak tree likewise to a Tele phone pole but in spite of this discrepancy it seems Safe to assume the Man is pretty tolerably dead while Ync Liing is always the product of society drunk and always hard on society sober this degenerate had without motive killed in cold blood an Uno fending Man and woman making orphans of several Young children and there is no pity due his beastly Mem Ory it will not matter so much who Goyiw to the National convention from Iowa next year if there is general assent to a state and National platform modelled after the Taft speech Uncle Joe Cannon has been in the limelight the past week cutting his Cigar consumption to four a Day has created More sensation than his presidential candidacy Irving a Dove has enlarged the Hartley journal which has very much improved under his ownership he May not be4 As harmless As the Bird which bears his name but Irving is never indolent and Seldom Dull within the past year Twenty two states have by Law reduced passenger fares and in fourteen principal lines have been limited to the Flat two cent rate the people Are delighted and from Early experiences the roads Are Likely to find they were opposing their own interests in fighting reduction Andrew Townsend Hise says he has a four Days engagement at the Sibley Chautauqua it would seem that Andy could disperse any intelligent gathering of people in less than four Days the progressive spirit of the Sac Sun is by no Means confined to affairs political in building and office in prov elements it has invested within a year All of which has been or will be made out of the business the latest addition is a Mergenthaler

paper will f Smith a Webster City Prin Ter editor tells Freeman readers that when he came there in 1867 the choicest Prairie land in Hamilton county could have been bought for to s3 an acre that within Twenty years he could have bought a farm right next the fair ground at 89 that within this period two sections of Fine land a mile or two Southwest of Webster City were offered at an acre this seems funny the Beacon happens to know Tusit in 1865 land six Miles South of Webster sold at not one piece but several that one tract with meager improvements sold in 1869 at s10 William Lieberman

Many of the readers of this up air have passed him Many times he stood by the Side of the Northwestern Ricks when the train went saw lot a hero but a common italian la Borer audio diff a Herd of his

served the United states express com Pany i would not in mine age be left so naked to mine enemies it is interesting to know that Iowa is looming up As a Coal producing state our product last year amounted to 72615223 Short tens the value of which is estimated at mind you this was the value at the mines the term Short tons As used in this connection having nothing to do with the alleged lax morals of the retailer the suit in Minnesota to enjoin the state from enforcing statutes providing for lower fares develops the interest ing fact that for the months of May and june receipts on a two cent basis show increased passenger earning Over like periods under higher rates of nearly All lines of railway within the state on both state and interstate traffic in Lyon county last week an Auto Mobile ran amuck of a dog the steer ing gear was broken the car overturned and several people injured the canine is censured but it is pretty Safe to conclude that the Auto was being recklessly driven or the Accident might have been averted there is much More danger from the careless driving of Aritos than there is from dogs or other obstructions the state fair attendance to Date has been considerably less than last year although the attractions Are pronounced better indifference of the country weekly papers in booming the fair and the withdrawal of Road rates have no doubt had a marked effect on attendance at a recent session of the Ward county North Dakota supervisors Wolf bounties were allowed to the amount of 83168 As to taxing Money the question of taxing moneys and credits is again under discussion in Iowa tire number in favor of placing these forms of property on the free list is evidently increasing but none of the men taking this View will live Long enough to see it in equity and Good morals no excuse can be found for removing moneys and credits from the tax Roll such Legal discrimination would provoke riotous Wrath in the minds of men who con tribute to the Public revenues upon lands and buildings and merchandise and corporation Stock and live Stock even upon the family cow kept to Supply milk for the Little ones and who have no Money or notes upon which to profit by the discrimination it is urged that moneys and credits Are hit so much harder than other Taxa Bles and that so much hardship is visited upon widows and orphans living upon meager loaning capital this is not necessarily True the Law Sasall property must be assessed at its actual Cash value in the usual course of in this town not a few buildings could be bought at the taxable value if this is not True everywhere it should be certainly Cash and notes should not be assessed on a higher basis than other properties this is the just and equitable View when it comes to the matter of expediency the Case is different As a matter of fact Only a Mere fraction of moneys and credits actually subject to taxation Are found by the assessor the larger portion of these holdings belong in cities where the Levy is High and the interest rate Low hence the great temptation and tendency toward evasion it is singular that so Many men will sit As Jurist in the Case of their own assessment and absolve themselves from moral offence in com mitting perjury before the assessor but the emaciated tax Roll no ducks the m1lford dismal evidence so it happens that by i her parents or arid mrs Lewis far the larger proportion of Cash Ami Jira me Elroy drove to notes escape taxation and comparatively us on his word but prices sound queer his Pioneer land ittle Relief to the revenues comes from hat source the risk and moral Wear d tear on the evaders As Well As the onerous contribution from the honest taxpayer inclines to raise interest rates unquestionably much Money goes out f the state into Fields where there is Ess persistence than in Iowa in Mak no it uncomfortable for private Len Ders there Are reasons Why As a matter of Public expediency Iowa should join the Small list of states exempting moneys and credits from taxation it might be a Good thing As Public policy but it will take a Long miss Irene Hubbard and her Mother have re turned from the Jamestown exposition
