RIVILEGE TAX BREAKS ALL RECORD..
Will be $100,000 in Excess of the First
Year's Receipts After the Law Was
The amount of the privilege tax
is climbing up close to the $130,000
mark, and if the checks come in
for the next few days of this month
as they have been during the last
two weeks, that astonishing record
will have been reached.
There was a lot of talk last year
that the enormous sales of ferti
lizers, as indicated by the receipts
of privilege tax, disproved the
claims of the cotton association as
to reduced acreage. However, an
other view of the matter may be
taken and it may be ascribed to the
planting of increased acreage in
grain and other crops that such a
volume of commercial fertilizer was
put on the market. The sales of
the year 1904 exceeded any pre
vious sales by $io,ooo and now
the sales for 1905 exceed the sales
for the same time in 1904 by $13,
043,38. . The total amount sold in
the year 1904 was $118,oo while
up to December 13 of this year the
sales have been $127,257.78.
It is believed that there is another
reason for the marked increase in
the amount of fertilizer sold. The
legislature has required that cot
ton seed meal -be taxed. It had been
taxed before as a fertilizer but not
as a food-stuff, and a great many
people would buy- it for feed for the
cattle and would use it for fertili
zer. This is what caused the leg
islature to take action taxing the
.al when bought even for cattle
It can hardly be realized that the
income from this tag tax was but
$30,000 when it was 'started 10
years ago and that it has increased
$1oo,ooo a year. The rate of tax
is 25 cents on every ton of com

claim that they have to pay the tax,
that the 25 cents is add(ed into the

product, but it is questionable if
the doing away with the tax would
