HOYNE BUR8TS ANOTHER BOMB
IN TAXDODGERjB' WAR
state's Attorney Mjaclay Hoyne
yesterday made'the assertion, that the
Board of Review had cut the taxation
of a large Chicago corporation $375,
000. Hoyne as a feature ol hs war on
taxdodgers held a conference with
the JBoard of Review and the Board
of-Jkssessors. He suddenly shocked
both these bodfls, by making the fol
"There is a certain Illinois corpora
tion with an authorized capitalization
of $5,000,000 of which $4,4gO,OO0 Js
fully paiL The records, of the Board
of-vAssessors show tnaUthe corpora
tion was originally assessed at a val
uation of $500,000. Later, the books
show this assessment waaxeduced to
$50,000, and the records of iheBoardi
of Review show that it was still
further reduced by that body to $25,
000, on which amount taxes were
paid. That is not right We do not
need new laws as much, as the en
forcement of the present laws,"
Roy O. West, member of the Board
of Review, made the excuse that

urging West t? let the state'? attor

cheated on their taxes.

good faith some are paying their

"Where we have been receiving
$40,000J000 in taxes we should bejte
ceiving $80,000,00,0, and Irive public
warning that I will prosecute. This
isnot a political move, but one for
the public benefit.
