TAX ON AUTOS
Phoenix. Aria., Jan. 12. Taxes on
mines, automobiles and foreign cor
pora tiens were mentioned In dotal
In the report of the state tax com
mission to the governor and the leg-
' I slat ore.
The commission renewed its recom-
1 mendation for an increase in the
amount of the motor license tax to
be paid into the state road fund. A
bill for that purpose was submitted
by the cd omission and the assessors
to th !t3t legislature,
"it failed of paasage." said the re
port, "because most of the members
f the committee having too hill un
der consideration owned automobiles
and declared they were paying about
all the taxes they could stand. As
it nappened. they were large taxpay
ers but shortsighted: They failed
to recognize the fact that by their
act they were letting off large num
bers of automobile owners who paid
no other taxes but who tear over the
roads recklessly, causing damage,
death an 1 expense. The more taxes
paid by automobiles Into the road
fund tbe less other property will have
to pa "
Th commission also recommended
that the legislature enact a law giv
ing the sTate trx commission author
iTj to tax foreign corporations doing
business m Arizona. It stated the
commission had worked out a practi
cal method of assessing these corpor
ations and finding Arizona's propor
!'on of thA assessments and made
reference to the case of the Standard
Oil oompany under litigation.
Methods of classifying producing
mines for 1920 are discussed In some
detail. The report asserts that since
no new producing mines have been
brought in during the last two years
and since a lack of market for pro
duct has resulted in closing several
mines that have heretofore been pro
ducers of considerable magnitude, the
duty of arriving at an equitable val
uation of these properties will be one
of the perplexing problems of the in
coming tax commission.

In Using Long Distance
In placing a cafi to a d&tsat point, thought lhouid be taken of the con
venience of the person called, and of other who wish to use the line.
It isn't a kd act to place a loBg-distance call and then leave your tele
phone before connection is made with the distant person. For instance, you
place a call for a btey man in BusyviBe. Then you leave your office.
Meanwhile, the Busyville mm is called, he answers, the operator rings your
telephone and there is no response, or she is told you have stepped out It is
not only annoying to the person called, but others who are waiting have been
delayed m secttring the circuit
If you MUST! cave the telephone before the call has been completed,
please notify "Long Distance" at what telephone you can be called. This
will prevent inconvenience to tke person called, and will conserve the use of
Each stitcnber is an essential factor in good telephone service, and we

in the use of your telephone, and your friendly attitude towards our efforts to
