THE ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
VOL. Ilk NO. 446. JUNEAU, ALASKA, SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1914. ? PRICE, TEN CENTS Real Estate Valuations To Show Big Increase It is estimated that the tax levy for 1914 wiU produce a total for both real and personal property of approximate ly $54,000 and that the total income for the city this year will be $87,000. Councilman William Britt, chairman of the committee on assessment and taxation said that he had been trying to familiarize himself with conditions as existing now aud compared with last year and had sought information from the most reliable sources avail able and had reached the following conculslons: First, that real estate val ues have increased fully 25%, that there will be an increase of the reve nues from licenses. Ijist year the real estate was valued at $1,555,005; personal property at $51S,170 of which an exemption amounting to $14,000 was deducted leaving a grand total of $2,052,585, on which a levy of $41,051.70 was collect ed except a few hundred still unpaid. It is estimated now that the levy on real estate for 1914 will amount to $38,626 and that the personal proper ty valuation will be Increased to $700. 00 and yielding in taxes approximately $15,000. It Is estimated that tines and forfeitures will total $4,000 and that the license tai will yield $30,000, mak ing a grand total of $87,000 as com pared with $70,680 last year. This does not include the earnings of the city dock nor the profits to be derived from the municipal coal yard. Financial Report. A brief report on the financial condi tion of the city shows a general fund overdraft amounting to $34,442.94 with accrued interesting amounting to $1. 335.53: a salary fund overdraft of $2. 627.34 with accrued interested amount ing to $46.70: unpaid claims amount ing to $611.15 on which the interests amounts to $12.40: a balance due on coul amounting to $3,369.95. with coal in the bunkers valued at $3,136. leav ing a net indebtedness of $200.95. The total defiecit amounts to $37,383.72. Interest-Bearing Warrants for Claims > Against City. The present city council, following i a very long discussion on the financial policy to be adopted, practically agreed to c ntinuo tho system of the previous city council of issuing interest-bearing warrants In payment of all claims ex cept salary and labor, when funds are not available for the payments of such cla!" s tho labor claims are. however, to be >aid in cash or warrants convert ible i..to cash without discount. Mayor Rock said that he was in fa vor of paying the labor claims but believed that some of the creditors of the city could afTord to wait for their money, the lighting company and the water company, for instance. For mer Councilman J. B. Marshall was present and upon request explained the plan of issuing interest-bearing warrants that had been adopted by the former council. Councilman J. R. Wil lis said that it would not be fair that some of the creditors should hold in terest-bearing warrants for claims against the city, and others be com pelled to wait without, recompense un til such time as the city can pay. Coun cilman William Britt said it was only fair that if the city wanted something! it should do like a private citizen, pay for it: he was therefore in favor of continuing the policy of the previous administration of issuing warrants bearing interest on claims from the time such claims should actually be come due. Wharf and Coal Accounts Separate. A resolution was passed at last night's session of the city council that hereafter the wharf and coal ac counts would be kept entirely separate from all other accounts of the city and that those institutions would be treat ed as separate corporations.
