Mohave county has the largest
registration of voters in its history
there being 1095 names on the great
register al the close of registration
The great register last year showed
more than this number but contained
the names of severil hundred that
were either dead or had left the state
The names now on the register are
resident voters and the poll is likely
to he the largest ever cast Only a
few residents have been excluded by

possibly a lesser percentage than other
counties in the state

Plan for Mine Taxation
Last Monday at Phenix the mem
bers of the hoard of State Tax Com
mission and the boards of supervisors
of the various mining counties of the
state met at the Capital and discussed
methods for future taxation of the
mines of the state A plan was sub
mitted by the mine owners that ap
peared to meet with the views of the
supervisors and possibly the com
mission although that board refused
to commit itself to the proposition
The plan as outlined was as follows
We Propose that the assessed val
ue of Mines be ascertained as follows
First That all patented mines be
assessed per acre at the price paid to
the U S Government therefore
Second That all improvements
upon said mines be assessed by the
State Tax Commission at the same
value as other property
Third That the net earnings from
said mines be ascertained and assessed
at 100 per cent of the true value there
Fourth That in addition thereto
all producing mines be assessed upon
12 1 2 per cent of the gross product or
yield thereof in value
This would compel the mines to pay
on the full net product of the prop
erty besides on 12 1 2 per cent of the
gross product together with the value
of improvements and the surface
grounds at the price paid to the
government As an illustratiou If
the mine produced 100001 and the
net product was 59000 it would be as
sessed on a basis of 02500 together
with its acreage at five dollars per
acre and all improvements on the

and S 3 Jones of the Tom Reed Gold

ber of mining representatives from the

before the legislature to be enacted
into law
