In tho dobato which ensued on
tho motion to amend section 74,
allowing tho Minister of Financo
to appoint three Buitablo persons
as a tax appeal board instead of
retaining the Circuit Judge on tho
Board, Minister Damon said it
was unfortunato that tho Bo

affected auy person anywhere in
tho islands there was always
sovoral of his rotations to coino to

Senator MoCandloss moved to

that it virtually creates u monopoly
horo and prohibits the importa
tion of livo stock from California.
Tho Sonnto should bo careful not
to antagonize tho pooplo of tho
Pacifio Coast, who woro already

Claus Sprockols has ovidenced
his interest iutho welfaro of Santa
Cruz County by donating to it a
strip of bind fifty feet wide and
a milo long, extending from tho
county road to Aptos Beach, to
bo usod forever us a publln high

ed, from tho fact that a fow years
ago tho strip was tho Bubjcct of
litigation, tho county claiming it
nB a pnblio highway, while Mr.
Spreokels contended that it was
his private land. Tho result of
tho litigation proved that Mr.
Spreokela' contention was correct.
Now ho has donated tho strip to
tho county without consideration,
his only dpsiro boing that tho
public shall use it. Tho land
donated is vory valuable.
