In Rock Island It Is $8.35 While Mo
line's Is $9.17!2 As to the
Rock Island county will raise on tho
tax levy of 1905, collectable this year,
a total of $082,374.40, on a valuation of
$9,651,570. The tax rate in Rock
Island and in Moline is reduced some
what, the greater reduction being no
ticed in Moline. The rate in Moline
this year is $9.17. as compared with
$9.55 last year, on the levy of 1904. In
Rock Island the rate is $8.33 on $100,
as compared with $S.44. the rate last
year on the levy of 1904. One reason
for the decrease in the rate in Moline
is the annexation of the large tracts
to the city since the former levy.

has been spread on the county books
by County Clerk Henry Hubbard. A
total value of $9,051,570 is shown, as
compared with a valuation of $9,527,530

tax was $GS0,971.51, considerably less
than the amount which will be collect
ed this year.

books, shows the following valuations

schooner Quannapowitt. which they
lost in the fog last Tuesday, and they
had drifted more than 200 miles from
the fishing grounds when found by the
