Time Will be Granted
in Which to Pay Taxes.
Taxpayers may have a lee
way of from 20 to 30 days after
the county assessor delivers the
tax roils to the treasurer and
collector in whioh fo pay their
taxei&vithout having to pay the
penalty also according to an
pinion rendered by the attor
ney generals department at the
it-quest of traveling auditor,
Howell Ernest. Copies of the
opinion are being sent to
the treasurers and collectors of
the various counties. The opin
ion is as follows:
Hon. Howell Earnest,
Santa Fe. N. M.
In response to your oral re-
reuuest. I have considered the
' question as to whether tax
payers should be charged inter
est in accordance with thp
terms of the statute, from the
lirt day of December in those
counties where ' the tax rolls
have not reached the treasurer
and ex-officio collector before
It would be clearly unjust to
charge that interest when the
taxpayer haR had no opportunity
to pay and of-couree, he cannot
pay until the tax roll is in the
collector's office. Under these
circumstances. I believe it
would be proper for you to
recommend to each collector
that as soon as he receives the
tax roll he give public notice
through the press that interest
will be charged beginning up
on a day not less thanvicfttyj, ., , , ;tIintp

A FEW FACTS AND
A FEW FIGURES
You have read our "Foreword" and you know wer'e going to tell you the
truth about our business and company.
Vhenwe s.iy "our" company we mean your company, too- for you are a
partrjer in the business.
Our company (your company), as now constituted, embracer the seven
states in the Rocky Mountain; it owns and operates 189,666 telephones.
The actual cash value of the wire, poles, switchbnrds, batteries and in
struments (the "tools" with which we make your service) is $32,714,355.
The total issue of treasury stock -the money with which we paid for these
properties (these "tools") is $29,693,600, and we have no bonds.
You see, we have over three million dollars more invested in actual phys
ical property and equipment than we have stock issued.
Your service is based on the larger amount the actual physical valuation.
Your rates are based on the smaller amount the money invested in our
In other words, you gel the benefit in service of over three million dollars
for which you pay nothing
The money you pay for telephone service goes to the operators, the line
in mi and other employes in salaries and wages
It goes to pav for our supplies and material, our taxej, insurance, divi
dends, and other necessities
Not a cent of it goes to pay for extensions and additions to plant, new
switchboards, new exchanges or Long Distance lines
The money for these things comes from the people who invest their sav
ings in our business
We pay them seven per cent for the use of their money
You'll admit that this is only a fair return upon their money and a great
deal less than your grocer makes on the money invested in his business
We realize that you are not an accountant
We dont believe you would read a lot of figures if we printed thern
We have those figures, though, prepared under the direction and super
vision of the Interstate Commerce Commission
They are ready for your inspection at any time
We'll show them -explain them- -and prove them to you any time you say
Each of our advertisements will contain a few of these figures -not enough
to worry you -but enough to prove the truth of our statements
