VOL. XXIII. No. 90. BUTTE, MONTANA, FRIDAY, JULY 3, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS. REVENUE RECEIPTS QUARTERMILLION Money Collected in Montana During Year Ended June 30, $221, 581.33. MORE THAN HALF FROM THE BUTTE DISTRICT Decided Falling Off Is Shown, Owing to the Wiping Out of the War Tax That 4lad Been Placed on a Number of Articles-More Than $100,000 From Sale of Beer and Tobacco Stamps. Internal revenue receipts of the state of Montana for the fiscal year ending Tuesday, June 30, amounted to $221,581.33. The second division of the internal revenue district, composed of Montana, Utah. Idaho, which has it headquarters at Butte, furnished $115,914.76 or aver one-half of this amount. Internal revenue receipts for the state show a falling off as compared with the fiscal year ending June 30, 1902, making allowance for the so-called war taxes, which having been repealed, were not in force during the late fiscal year. Two Revenue Districts. There are two internal revenue dis tricts in Montana, one having its hea-l quarters in Butte and the other having its headquarters in Helena. Receipts during the late fiscal year in the first named division were,, as stated, $125,924.76, and in the Helena division, $95,666.57. Last year the Montana internal revenue receipts amounted to $555.519.64. This amount included the war tax on legacies, documents, proprietary articles, banks, pawnshops, billiard, pool and other articles covered by the war tax. Prof. Clinton II. Moore, stamp deputy for this division, and C. D. French. deputy collector, have completed the report of the receipts of this division for the fiscal year and will forward the report to C ol lector E. II. Callister at Salt Lake to night. I le second Division. This, the second division, includes the countics of Silver Bow, Deer Lodge, Miel. ison, Gallatin. Powell, Jefferson, Missoula, Ravalli and Granite. Receipts in the division for the late fiscal year irom the sale of beer, cigars and tobacco stamps amounted to $I14,. 062.40; of the amount beer paid $io6,925. The receipts from what are called special tax stamps amounted to $z1,852.36. During the fiscal year the beer, cigar and tobacco stamp tax was less than dur ing the previous fiscal year because the tax on beer had been reduced from $i.6o to $i per barrel, that on cigars from $j.6o to $3 per thousand and tobacco from nine and six-tenths cents to six cents per pound. The special tax stamps are as follows: Saloons $25 per year, breweries $:oo, wholesale liquor dealers $3o0, wholesale oleomargarine dealers $;oo, retail oleo margarine dealers $6, rectifiers $0oo. Work of Brewers. During the fiscal year ending June jo, o903, the brewers in this division, ac cording to the reports to the collector's office, manufactured 104,15. barrels of beer. During the last fiscal year they manufactured so6,936 barrels of the amber fluid. While the figures show an increase there probably was not an increase in the number of barrels turned out, as Missoula county, which has a brewery, was included In the division in the last fiscal year and not in the previous one. 'While the exact figures are not obtain able, it is probable the manufacture of beer In this division has not matesially in creased or decreased during the last fiscal year. The total receipts of the Butte division the previous fiscal year were $204,274.53, but this included the amount collected from the sale of documentary and pro prietary stamps and the other Items of the war tax, not including legacies, which have since been repealed. For the Year. Internal revenue receipts for the entire revenue district for the fiscal year ending June 3o, 1902, were $792,657.23, divided as follows: Montana, 8555.519.64; Idaho, $51,7g9.8a; Utah, $185,346,657.23. "Of course, you want to pnderstand that during the last fiscal year we had no revenue frons the war taxes," said Deputy Collector French, "these having been re pealed."
