To The Oomlj Oommissioners-
deaii sin Wo call tho attention of
tho County Commissioners to tho uti
cqaal and unjust valuations of Uititon
towushlp as compared with tho border
townships. For yours wo havo con
tended that tho valuation of Benton
townships were 20 percent higher thin
equitable and just valuations. Every
effort to remedy this evil, or to equalize
this unjuBt valuation by triennial Assess
monts has been ignored and duliautly
sot aside by tho Commissioners, regard
less of tho protests of tho injured and
over taxed nltizons of Benton. An an
alysis of tho subject shows tho follow
ing results According to tho census
of 1880 tho population of Benton
township was 10G2. Tho comiy tax
assessed to Benton last year was $898,
08 ,or 84 cents per capita. Fishing
orreek with a population of 1 140 was
assessed $1161.01, or 80 J cents per.
capita. Sugar-loaf with h population
of 872 was assessed $4 17.9G, or 51
cents per. capita. Greenwood with a
population of 1710 was assessed $1279.
03, or 75 conts per, capita Jaokson,
with a population of 675 was assessed
$295,10, or 41 oonts per. capita. Pine,
with a population of 911, was assessed
$108,97, or 45 cents per, capita. Loca
tion with regard to tho commercial
world favors Fishingoreek and Green
wood so far as relates to valuation.
Fertility, iraproveraants and physical
features are dooidedly in favor of
Fishingoreek which pays only 95 per.
cent per capita assessed to Benton
Susarloaf pays 61 per cnt, Green
wood 88 percent. Jaokson 52 por .cent
and fine 53 por cent ot lion ton, entire
population per capita assessments.
Tho rale of county tax on real estate
and personal property was 2J mills on
tho dollar valuation. Tno amount of
county taxes nssossed to the several
towiiships abovd namod shows an ag
croc a to and per capita valuation as
follows, viz; Benton, asfgrogate vain
ation $359,232; per, capita $338.25,
Fis'iingoreek, aguresMto valuation
$165,605; per capita $322. Suojarloaf

valuation $511,993; per capita $299,
41. Jaokson, agreaato vauation
$118,010; per oapita $170. Pino ag
groeato valuation $163,503; per capita
$180. ready. Bouton has an assessed
valuation per capita $10 25 more than
Fisuinsoreok, $132 75 more than
Sugarloaf, $38.84 more than Greenwood
$163.25 more than Jaokson and
$198.50 more than Pine. Othor
valuations assessea to the above
townships for state purposes was
mills on the dollar. This valuation is
not here annexed to tho valuation of
real estate and personal property, but
is distributed in the following order;
money at interest Furniture fco Benton
S21.18U. Fishiniroreelc 32,100. Green
wood $103,273. Suguloaf $6,580,
Jaokson $12,920, and Pma $3,020
Tho entire population of Benton has an
assessed valuation for county purposes
of S17,2G8, more thau an equal ponti
lation of Fnhingoreek, mi I pays $13,-
17 more county tax. The same has
$11,259 more assessed valuation than
an equal population of Grconwood and
pays $103.15 more oounty tax. The
entire population of Sugarloaf has an
assessed valuation of $115,769 less
than an equal population of B niton and
pays $289,42 less county tax. Tho
entire population of Jackson has an
assessee valuation of $110,298, less
than equal population of B inton and
pays $275.75 less county tax. The
entiro population of Pine has an assessed
valuation 01 SI 14.557,loss than an
equal population ot iienton and pays
$361,39 less oounty tax. The aggrt
gate taxes of the above six townships
last year were an avenge of
$748,93. Bdiiton paid $149,10 above
the average. Wo very muoh regret
that we have not tho aroaof tho several
townships, but Benton is muoh the
least in area of the aboye townships,
under consideration. We did not have
acces to statistics or reoordd other than
the county statement, and the county
population iu detail. Wo challenge
the commissioners and their clerk to
examinen and investigate the above
statement and comparison, and if cor
root, we demand in tho name of justice
a revision and fair reluction of our
assessed valuations, and that before
another tax is levied, as suoh gross
injustice uhuld not go uncorrected fo
a single day. If the commissioners
refuse to mako tho desired reduction
wo hops that they will give .1 publio
reasou tor suoh refusal. It they Deg
lect this important duty wo counsel
every taxpaying citizen of Benton of
all partiis, to support no candidate fur
commiasioner either at the primary
geneaal election, who will not pledg
limine! in written bond, to givo us
fair and equitable valuation. Tin1
people of Benton have paid extortion
ato taxes for years, and no ouo but tho
commissioners will say that tho peopl
of Ben.011 aroin better finanoial oircura

Seed Ihonghtson farming.
To your question "Does farming
pay so" I send you for publication
tow seed thoughts for tho larmors to
thresh out, I think farming does not
pay a profit at tho present prioo of
produce, because there aro too many
tax caters for tho taxpayers! office
holders farm the farmer) too much,
Uonsumptlnn of produo is limited
wliilo production is unlimited. Daring
tho last nine years tbo expansion of tho
crop area of wheat, corn, oats it a has
boon nbout 31,000,000 aoros in United
StatiB. At this timo produce from tho
Southern llemlsphoro is coming in
market whilo wheat on hand after a
certain timo In Calfornia Is taxed.
Rumors to snvo paying tho tax are
now showing it on tho market; all this
with railroads and combines of oapit-
alistB in their greed for grain oauso
low prices and help wreok the farmers.
l' armors must farm loss land and mako
it moro produotivo and thereby save
moro oxpenso of farming and taxes.
farmers Blotild tax themselves for
good roads and get them. It costs too
muoh to got to market with thoir pro
duce. Bad roads is a tax on what is
hanlod from the farm as well as what Is
hauled to it, and farmers pay it, every
time they pass over them in horseflesh,
repair to wagon, ctj. It costs 180
times moro to haul a ton by wagon
than by railroad and that is why tho
West oompste with the h.ast.
Uvci production thronghout Uip
country makis prices low, but it is
over-production of inferior products
that hurts farming as thero is never
enough of thj best. The farmer is a
consumer and be must keep close to
the producor. Ho must soli at whole
sale and should so btw his supplies.
lie must learn what, when and where
to sell as ho j? to produce.
The farmer has too pay too high a rata
of interest for neooss try money. Tho
Government for the past 28 years havo
loaned to bankers so ray $35U,090,U00
that didn't cost ihem one percent whioh
they loan to farmers at 10 percent.
The Govornment should lean this
money direct to larmors at say 4 per
cent, ami tak-j a mortgage on tho land
and produce as do tho money sh irks
In the one case the government would
be receiving income at a fair raw of
interest in tbeotboritis beinir premium
taxed to pay the interest on the bond,
to got these bonds held by capitalists.
Scarcity of money or aear money,
make cheap produce and it is the
contraction of the money at the present
time that is hurting tho farmer as
muoh as overproduction. Tneoiinags
ot silver should be unlimited so that
money can beoomo plenty and produce
dearer by enabling more consumption
taxation is unequal. Capitalists, val
liable unseated linds in large tracts
are held for speculation and rated low;
while farmers aro taxed n-arlv full
value on tho land and improvements.
Clear case of blessed be nothing.
Railroads pay no tax on "right of way"
no matter how valuable. Uailroad and
corporate property should bo no 1
sacred than farm propertv.
unjuBt uiiu uiDunmiuaunB legislation

when running for an office promise
anything but do nothing for interest
of farmer after circled.
Did the honest farmer give him his
vote with tho understanding that If
elected, half of their time would be
spent in drawing visionary bills and
voting for repeal of fonco and other
laws 111 the interest of railroad and
other corn'irations. and the otht r half

Speculators and trusts keep down
tho price of produce to nearly cost to
producer but'thfre is no coi responding
prioe to tho consumer, and scarcely an
article the farmer consumes but what
is doubled 111 price from the time of
leaving tho manufacturer. Thoy say,
"your necessity our opportunity," and
corner the produce of tho fa-rafr and
rob him of his profit on his wheat, ifco
and the consumer they starve and
freeze unless they pay an exorbitant
price for flour and fuel. The fow are
robbing the many right and left, rob
bing them in tho name of commerce
and civilization. Industrial warfaro
and oorporato forces are all arrayed
against tho farmer. He must fight
fire with firo.
Manufacturers, railroads and cor
porations can get all tho legislation
they want, why nni the farmer ! The
government can do anything it choos
es; it can mako tho cormorants who
havo fattened for years upon thn farm
er take tho poor pasture field awhile.
It oan exercise police control of thieves
in purplo and tine linen as well as
farmers and laboreia rags. It oan help
agriculture much by passing revenue
laws for tho "greatest good of the
greatest number'' instead of fur some
particular industiy. It must protect
the farmer first of all, even if it lias
to take it taxes in prnduco, as in old
en Jtimos. I must slop or you will
think I too am farming the farmers.

Beformity From Bright's Dispase.
S. D VanBuskirk, of Dmarest, N.

had failed. She was so swooleo that
