Radical recommendations concerning poll tnx laws will probably bo mado to tho legislature by Governor rrear, should Territorial Treasurer Coupling's present opinions on the subject bo crystallized to climinnto the tax and take care of the revenue by other methods. Treasurer Conkling is of ,tho opinion that the poll tax law, under which about sixty per cent, of tho residents legally bound to pay tho $5 per annum escape doing so, is in need of drastic changes. Tho treasurer is preparing figures on tho subject winch will be laid buforo tho Governor beforo tho end of the year, in which ho will show that tho poll tax, which amounts to nbout $90,-000 a yenr, is almost an injustice to those who pay tho tax year nftcr year. There is a heavy percentage of citizens who escape payment of the tnx for tho Bimplo reason that they don't pay and "Ifor another simple reason that they can't. Thoso who do pay aro mainly thoso on salnrles, employes of others, and in nil such cases they cannot escape tho tax collector. There is n rank and file among the citizens who do not see $5 in cash from one end of tho year to the other and who would find it almost a physical impossibility to pay tho tax nuthorlzed by law. In some of the country districts tho natives, for instance, seldom pay the tax becauso they have not the means. They make mats nnd many other things in which thoy nro skilled nnd live by trading with stores, obtaining fish from tho sea by their own skill nnd raising tnro for into poi. The man who makes $30 to $40 a month as an employe of a business house, whoso rent, -clothing and general living expenses for himself and fnmily, require almost every cent earned, is compelled to pay poll tax. The tax collector sees to it, and the employe has no opportunity to dodge payment. Tho district courts are cluttered at vnrious times of tho year with suits brought by the government for the payment of the noil tax. as well as other taxes. Tho treasurer has constructive ideas on tho rfubicct of rctaininc tho collec tions, howover, even though tho poll tax is eliminated, by passing a graa. uated scale of income tax whereby ov erybody who earns or receives an in como, oven down to $250 a year, pays somothiiie into the treasury. He would reduce the exemption from $1500 to con siderably less, so that the man on salary who receives $2000 a year would still pay into tho treasury in income tax the amount ho now pays in poll and income tnx, but nt the same time many of those who havo heretofore escaped, paying poll or income tnx, would pay something, although it might bo only a dollar or two a year. By this means tho treasurer believes that thi treasury would bo" the gainer in the long run. HIS MfflIHfli WAS TDD STRENUOUS About Six Months Was All He Could Stand and Now He Seeks Divorce.
