Estimate . Made by Jreasurer
Conkling Points to Big Decrease
From Last Year.
Between January 1 of this year aud
-May 13 the tax collections of . the Ter
ritory will amount to about a million
lollais, in round figures, according to
mi estimate made yesterday by Treas
urer 1. It, t'oukliug. The collections
for the same period last vear totaled,
iu round figures, $1,400,000, or about
twenty-eight and a half pur cent more
than the estimated total for the pres
ent period. ' '
That tbe shortage this year would be
vontiiderable was fully expected, the de
crease being indicuted by the extreme
ly low returns made by the big tax
l iying estates of . the Islsuds aud the
reductions allowed eventually; under
last year's figures, by the tax equaliza
tion board which met in Honolulu dur
ing March. ' x "
Full returns on the collections for
the period named will not be at hand
until after May 15, the last day when
property aud income taxes for tbe first
hall or the year may be paid without
the ten ier cent penalty. The reduced
revenue will affect the various counties
a good deal. Expecting this, the coun
ties of Maui ami Kauai some time ago
entered upou a period of retrenchment
which is expected to carry them over
until conditions better. .
