votors decide that tho city shall bo
mado antlsaloon territory, according to
n statement mado to Nathan A. Colo,
chairman of tho Manufacturers ami
Morchnnta' Association, by Hugo S.
Grosser, former city statistician. Mr.
Grossor said that, desplto tho argu
ments that aio to bo submitted by tho
"drys," the minual loss will bo ?S,
000,000 In saloon taxes nlono, in addi
tion to other rovenue. v
In his letter to Mr, Cole, Statistician
Grosser says;
"Tho rovenuo from tho liquor Indus
try for the year 1009 amounted to
$7,230,039.40, nearly one-third of the
entire corporate revenue for tho year,
Should the city lose this revenue, ono
of two things Is possible, either to get
along without that amount or raise it
In some other way.
"The situation would be even more
serious than might appear at first
glance, for the amount collected or
the liquor Industry goes into that part
of the corporate fund from which are
paid tho ordinary expenses of the city,
which for 1909 amounted to 18,289,
043.76; so that almost one-half of the
various functions and services would
have to be dropped If this amount
should bo lost.
"But there are only two ways out of
the dilemma either to raise tho
amount by special taxes or licenses
from other businesses, or by general
taxation of all property within tho
"Nearly all of tho business lines that
are subject to special taxation are now
licensed and yield at present less than
one-tenth of tho revenue from liquor
licenses. It seems entirely out of tho
question to produce the amount in
this way.
"There is one other way left, and
that is by general taxation. The pres
ent tax law limits the maximum tax
rato for corporato purposes to 91.20
and the minimum tax rate to 91.10,
for each $100 of the assessed value
of all property, equal to one-third of
its full value. For 1909 the tax rate
for corporate purposes In tho city of
Chicago was 81.10, with an additional
25 cents for the payment of certain
bonds nnd Interest thereon. "
"Under the present valuation of all
property of 1833,150,897 it would re
quire an additional tax levy of 87
cents for each f 100 assessed valuation
In order to raise an amount equal to
that derived from the liquor Industry."

Brown for the vacancy on the Circuit
