DOG WANTS HOME A young male dog. now held at the southwest corner of Culver and Thirt een'.h streets, wants a good home. .1. W. Canning, humane officer, announced last night. In that it is vitally different the Arizona method of mine taxation held the center of interest when the mutter was discussed at the recent convention of the American Mining Congress held in Chicago, according to Charles R. Howe, chairman of the state tax commission. One df the sessions was given over entirely to the methods of taxation and valuation, Arizona being the only state to arrive at a value on the basis of capitalization of the annual average over a period of five years. While the congress had hoped to arrive at a uniform system of mine taxation it was agreed by the mem bers after lengthy discussions that each state must continue to devise a system satisfactory to its needs. In speaking of the different tax policies, Mr. Howe said that Minne sota with its iron mines arrives at valuations by physical appraisement of the ore bodies, which are all very well defined, making the exact ton nage readily ascertained. The Mich igan policy is worked out on the basis of 93 per cent of the market value as shown by stock quotations on the date the tax levy applies, while the Utah plan is three times the annual net proceeds plus the value of machinery and equipment. An interesting development of the session in the opinion of Mr. Howe was the case of Minnesota, where the total assessed value of all the mines was announced at $295,000,000. and on this valuation tne mines in 13-1 paid in taxes 125,000.000. whereas in Arizona with a total valuation of slightly over $400,000,000 the mines paid a little less than 18,000.000. In Michigan the situation is differ ent, Mr. Howe stated. The mines there are assesed by the authorities of the county wherein the mine is situated and not by state officials. In the county the assessing officials are also mining officials, the result being that the amount of money needed to run the local government all being paid by the mines it makes little ditference as to the amount of the valuation. This, however, was regarded as a bad method in the esti mation of the conference in view that by this system the stock might be high one year and low the next whereas the Arizona policy spreading over a number of years, equalizes the tax. Mr. Howe said that a number of well known Arizonians attended the session, including among other James IKtuglas, United Verde Kxtension; J. K. Curry of Bisbee. secretary of the Arizona chapter, American Mining Congress; T. F. MeGrath of the Shat tuck mine; Arthur Nottman of the Copper Queen, and J. C. Dull, audi tor who at the instance of Mr. Doug las is auditing the books of state officials. STATE ORDERED TO ALLOW CLAIMS IN RAILWAY BONO CASE Th Arizona state treasurer and state auditor are required in a pre emptory writ of mandamus issued yesterday by Judjje R. C. Stanford in the superior court, to audit, allow and approve the claims of Pima, Yavapai, Coconino ant Maricopa counties against the state treasury to recover nearly 12.000,000 in bonds and accrued interest incurred by these counties through the issu ance of bonds to promote the build ing of the Arizona Central Rail way from Seligman, Ariz., through Prescott and Phoenix to Tucson. The order was asked in a suit brought by the counties in Tecem ber, 1920. The defendants yester- nay gave notice of appeal to the supreme court and Judge Stanford ordered a stay of proceedings in the case pending the perfection of the appeal. The writ of mandamus further ordered the state treasurer and auditor to credit each of the coun ties with the amount of their claims after they had been allowed. The defendants are directed after pay ing from the funds raised through the land grant now in the state treasury, the current Interest due on the bonds, to apportion the re maining amount to the counties and are also directed as funds become available from the land grant In the future, to apportion these amounts to the counties after all current interest then due on the bonds has been paid. In issuing the writ of mandamus, the court stated it found that each of the counties acting under a legis lative act of the territory had is sued and delivered bonds for the building of the road as follows Pima county, 1200.000; Yavapai county. 1293,200; Maricopa county, 1200,000: and that upon the form ation of Coconino county in 1891, it had assumed one-third, of the! bonds issued by Yavapai county, j The court further found, it stated, that the United States supreme! court on October 26, 1894, had held that the bonds issued by Pima county were invalid and that by virtue of this decision the bonds of the other counties became in valid, and that congress by an act of June 6. 1896. had validated the bonds of. the counties. The court stated it found that the original bonds were cancelled under the funding act of the state legislature and that new bonds plus interest were issued as follows: Maricopa county, 12u9,5iO. which in cluded 111,510 in interest: Yavapai county. $3:i7,96S.46, including $72, 9US.46 interest: Coconino, 1159.000.99. including 16.025.47 interest; and Pima, 1319,791.23, including interest of $169,791.23. atid that under the refunding act, each of the counties became indebted to the state in those amounts. The court also found, it stated, that congress by the enabling act of June 20. 1910. had granted 1.000.009 acres of land to the state of Arizona for the re demution of bonds and interest and that the state had received the grant and had selected a greater portion of the lands. The court stated it also found that' approxi mately 1235.000 had accrued in the state treasury to date from the rent als and stiles of these lands. The bonds involved in the suit were issued bv the counties between 18S2 and 1S7 and totaled nearly 11,000.000. They were Issued for the purpose of building a narrow gauge railroad from Seligman to Tucson, but in some manner un known, the bonds were turned over to the railroad company by the counties before the work of build ing the road began. The railroad company then sold the bonds to a third party and afiled to build the road. SA7' SOLILOQUIZING "Such a satisfactory hour !
