THE SLATE BILL. "VETOED.
Uoveruor Htepheiu Dennunrer the l'ro-
poed Taxation of Note.
Jkpfnkoox City Mo. March 30.
The governor this afternoon gave out
Ills message vetoing the measure In-
troduced and passed by the last assem-
bly known as the Slate note aud bond
assessment bill. He declares that the
records of the Senate und tho bill
Itself do not harmonize bceauso the
bill line the emergency clause attached
and It was not passed by the Senate.
"It main features." the governor
continues "are Inquisitorial and un-
American. Tho proponed operation
of this law would In the course
of time deface a. note or bond
almost beyond any recognition. Iu
addition the llNllug of the nuts of In-
debtedness which Is leprenenteil
by notes bunds und mortgage would
be an Impossible task for the
assessor. Successful business Men arc
usually very anxious to keep their
credit 'affairs private and If notes were
accurately described und placed upon
record it would lie made public prop-
erly. As for preventing proiwrty from
escapiug taxation this bill will have
little effect for those who Intend to
avoid taxation will lnveut more cer-
tain methods than they now have.
'There has been a groat cry for
years agalust paying Interest to for-
eign loan companies aud on foreign
capital and yet this law looks to me
as if it might be in the dlreut interest
of suuh companion for It doos not af-
fect them but only local uupltul. Tim
capitalists holding a sufilolent number
of notes will avoid the luw v indors-
ing them to friends iu other status
prior to June 1 and will thus escape
taxation mi all their projwirty iu this
form. The measure would impose u
hardship on the country merchants all
over the state because four-fifths are
compelled to transact business on the
credit basis. It exempts banks. It
would discourage investment ami
drive oapltal away from the state.
"It is un assault upon the honor and
good name of the state. If the law
should go into effect and all notes by
law must be assessed ut u hundred
cents on the dollar ull loans will be
called in and thousands of people now
thought to be wealthy will m driven
to ruin. .Many who voted for tho
bill did fto under a misapprehension
und nre now apologizing for their
votes. Tho result of such a law would
be to flood the courts with litigation
encourago dishonesty and restrain the
free exchange of negotiable jiaper "
