A Personal Tax.
In ' Now York city the late Moses
Taylor paid a larger personal tax than
any other person in the city. He paid
on an assessed p?rsonal valuation of
$1,300,000, which is the surn assessed
to his widow. W. II.Vanderbilt swore off
all his personal tax, but afterward came
o to the tax tlico and said that to satisfy
"public e.amor" he would voluntarily
pay a personal tax on a vuluation of
f1,0 )0,000. Jay Gould pays on only
- 10o,000. The James Lenox estate pays
a on $1,000,000 person 1, tho Astors on
8',000.000, Mrs. E. 1). Morgan on
t $1,000 000, Mrs. A. T. Stewart on
$500.00'1 and Miss Catlerine L. Wolfe
on $100,000. Thero is a decreaso each
o year in the number of persons who par
It taxes. Last year only 11,666 personi
t pata on personal estate and the mmber
will probably be less this year. In 1880
t the number was 14.764.
