ECCLES ESTATE TO
Based on 310,000,000 Valua
tion, Stale Will Be Enriched
Jf the late Wavid Ecelcs left an estate
of $10,000,000 as Iijim been estimated by
sonic, the stale of Utah would thereby
be cnrlehcd to the extent of ?r.)0.u00. nc
eordluc to the Inheritance lux law. The
law run Hires tnx or 5 per cu4 on all
estates, with a 510.000 exemption. At
auv rate the' es'tute promises to brluw
a liir'o sum of money Into the state
coffers. . .
With JI, 100.000 ulroswly rolloelcd In In
liciitiun'c taxes, Attorney Guncral A.
K. Barnes Is of the opinion thai it will
probably bo unnecessary for the slate to
Issue bonds for the construction of the
capltoi building. If tho next Icpjslatnro
will set aside thtt tax from the Eceles
estate to bo used for tho bulldinp of the
.structure The legislature of 1011 ap
propriated $750,000 from the Inheritance
taxes for the eapilol bulldlny, being- a
part or the money from the estate of
the late Mil ward II. llnrrlrnan. It In
believed that there will be Utile trouble
ln having the tax from the Kccles estate
transferred to the capltoi fund.
Bclngr within the state, the probate
eourls will settle the estate and attend
to tho inheritance tax. Therefore it will
not be handled through the attorney gen
eral's office, as is done In the. ease of
outside estates holding Utah property.

DOOLY BLOCK LAWYER
REQUESTS A HEARING
On behalf of the owners of the "Dooly
block, William W. Ray, attorney, ap
peared before the city commission last
night to protest against Ibe action of
the commission in allowing the Orpheus
Vaudeville company to construct an arch
across Second South street in front of
tho new Orpbcum thealer.
Tho arch already Is up, but the per
mit for Its erection Is held to be tech
nically imperfect 'bocauso of a discrep
ancy between the name of the peti
tioner for the permit and tho company
tiling the bond. The Orpheum tlieater
asked permission to erect the sign, and
tho Orpheus Vaudcvillo tiled the bond.
The commission, however. In executive
session last Thursday, assured Wio Or
pheus Vaudeville company that the per
mit would be granted.
Mr. Ray declared that ho did not think
it was fair for the commission to take
any action ln the matter without giving
him a hearing. He was assured that
before the permit was formally granted
ho would be given an opportunity to
present his arguments against it.

SHORTAGE OF WATER
The .annual shortage of water, due to

whose pernicious activity along tlic moun
tain water courses during the past few
lays has paralyzed the flow to an alnrm
Ing extent, is now impending-, according
to C V. Barrett, superintendent of water

the opinion of expert miners of

several oftho richest mines of that

thought, cross-cut nearly all tho veins

There i.s an agitation in Denver to
have the city own any mine disclosed
by the tunnel. It is argued that if the
municipality pays for tho tunnel it
should derive the benefit of tho minerals.
