ARIZONA TAX LAW
An article in one of the Phoenix
papers states that the state tax com
missioners arc now devoting most of
their time in preparing a state revenue
law which they believe should be
passed by the legislature. The same
paper says that the .commissioners do
not contemplate making any radical
changes in the laws as they stand,
most of their work being the correc
tion of minor errors and thai when
the revised laws are complete they
will be about as they aro now.
Which may be assumed to mean that
the tax commission regards the pres
ent arbitrary and slip-shod method of
taxing mines In Arizona as sufficient.
Whatever may be sifd ot this method
It' provides a reason for the contin
uance of the high salaried tax com
mission and this Is a consideration not
to "be overlooked the commission.

AN ADVANCED CITY.
Thc prevalent Idea has been that
a clty must be operated at a dead ex

has been commonly accepted. But cvi.

a city cannot, as a business enterprise,
make money, and an error to be con
