A new innovation was introduced
in police court when Judge Rice
asked the wife of William bclf, a
dry farmer, of the Sulphur Springs

husband for being drunk and disor

on jags very frequently and always

escaped with good lectures and no
fine. The last time he was warned
not to appear again in court, and
yesterday while "suffering from a

Some "Tax" Explanationing
An article published in the An
zona Gazette last Friday and a pur
ported interview with Chas Gowc
of the state tax commission, makes
it very proper that the members
of the hoard of supervisors of this
county should explain their action
in the matter of fixing the assessed
value of the producing mines in this
county at their session last week.
William Riggs, a member of the
board, is in Douglas today attend

crs convention. mt. Kiggs, wncn
approached by the International,
was Kind of the opportunity to
explain the action of the local
When tlic county board of eq
tialization met in July the members
asked the tax commission to come
or send a representative to meet
with them. Chas. Howe and Mr.
Zander came to Tombstone in res
ponsc to this request. At this time
it was represented to the Cochise
county board that all the first-class
producing mines in the state were
to be assessed on 100 per cent of
their gross output," said Mr. Riggs.
Continuing he said:
When tlic county board met in
August it had the same power as
it did in July, so far as reducing
values were concerned. Then we
learned for the first time that the
board of cquilization of Yavapai
county had at its July meeting, re
duced the assessment on the prodtt
ciug mines in that county, includ
ing the United Verde, from 100
per cent of their product to 75
per cent. We also learned that
this action m avapai county had
met witli the approval of the state
tax commission after having asstir
ed the Cochise county board that
all the big producing mines were to
be hehl for a tax of 100 per cent
of their product.
"On tins information was based
the action of the local board in re
iluciug the assessed value of the
mines in this county to 80 per cent

taken to prevent our home mines
from hearing an unequal burden in
