Jf the late Wavid Ecelcs left an estate of $10,000,000 as Iijim been estimated by sonic, the stale of Utah would thereby be cnrlehcd to the extent of ?r.)0.u00. nc eordluc to the Inheritance lux law.

With JI, 100.000 ulroswly rolloelcd In In liciitiun'c taxes, Attorney Guncral A. K. Barnes Is of the opinion thai it will probably bo unnecessary for the slate to Issue bonds for the construction of the capltoi building. If tho next Icpjslatnro will set aside thtt tax from the Eceles estate to bo used for tho bulldinp of the .structure The legislature of 1011 ap propriated $750,000 from the Inheritance taxes for the eapilol bulldlny, being- a part or the money from the estate of the late Mil ward II. llnrrlrnan. It In believed that there will be Utile trouble ln having the tax from the Kccles estate transferred to the capltoi fund. Bclngr within the state, the probate eourls will settle the estate and attend to tho inheritance tax. Therefore it will not be handled through the attorney gen eral's office, as is done In the. ease of outside estates holding Utah property.

That cutting the lUolVat tunnel through James peak will disclose valuable mines of. gold, silvor and copper, ia the opinion of expert miners of the intermountain region.

It is argued that if the municipality pays for tho tunnel it should derive the benefit of tho minerals.
