siate in taxes comes oaoa. to vno u - ..
payers in thO way of public benefits'
fn their own immediate vicinities. On-, '
y nine cents out of each dollar of , '
tax is used for administrative - par. , '
poses. Furthermore more than 2,-. ,
000,000 people of the state pay no ix -
for the administration; of the state ?
government or for the maintenance of '
public instituUons. -The loads , are '
being paid for by those who use them. J
Income, inheritance, and .franchise ,,,
taxes are used by the state govern-,. -
ment, leaving to each county the tax-.- v li
es on the property within its limit to ;
be used for county purposes.
