I believe I have made my con-
tention dear on the point of en-
forcing the iMiymeiit of delinquent
taxes. The fuss I have been mak-
ing is about the folks who can pay
their delinquent taxes but have
not done so simply Mxnuw they
were not made to do It. Their
number will Increase as Mine goes
on, and those who continue to i>ny
the taxes a*w*a*cd against them
will M* bowed down farther and
farther under a burden that can-
not fall to get too h«*avy to Isuir.
The lightening of ex|M‘ndltures of
tax money will not correct the
trouble, It will only cripple the
administration of the functions of
government, and do nothing to
bring the evaders of tux payment*
It Is foolish to nttempt to col-
lect taxes from those who can-
not |wy them til present anyone
knows that. Only those who in-
tentionally and wilfully keep from
fiaylng their taxes deserve to lose
their property, or have legal meas-
ures taken to compel them to |»*y.

There was an agltutlon afoot

beauty and delight to those privi-

It surely is time someone, or

nearly everyone around town,
would cut the wi*eds that seem to

I don't have hay fever, but I
am sure I wouldn’t enjoy U If I
did have it. Those weeds are re-

act of mercy on the isirt of those

• Taxes ia one of the lirfi fixed eharfaa cennected with the ap»

state, counties and communities, railroad taxes are af much tan-

It can thus be seen that railroad taxes represent an important
and indispensable factor In the economic Hie of our state. They
help in a large meaaure to pay tha expense of our state, county
and municipal government, build and maintain highways, pay
the cost of drafnaft and other Improvements, and support onr
schools and educational institutions.
It Is the desire of Texas railroads to extend this helpfulness to
Texas counties and communities In earning thla haavy burden.
However, their ability to meet these obligations as they baeoma
due depends upon their abUity to earn sufficient revenue with
which to pay this and other heavy expenses connected with their
