Mi:.JCO CITY, Nov. 21. A levy of 3uo,ooo pesos, about $250,000
in Arrsfricirt money, has been made at Monterey to pay the tnxips there,
according to reliable reports. It Is stated that ihe American Smeliim; and
Refining Company's contribution toward this amount was 25,000 pe-os. A
demand was nude by the Federal military authorities on all the foreign
business concerns in Monterey for cash to provide for the maintenance of
tne army in that district. Hrmn the Monterey Steel Company ju.000
pesos was asked and from the WatersPirce oil Company lS.uoo peso,
while others were taxed in proportion to their Importance. Thl Mexican
peso is worth about SO cents in American coin.
The managers here of the Waters-Pierce Oil Company instructed
their representative in Monterey to retu.se payment of the lew and to place
themselves and the property of the company under the protection "t the
