Last year a tax of mills was placi for the electric light and this year an additional mills has been placed on electric light plant bonds, an increase of 2 mills over last year. Notwithstanding the fact that the city now owns and operates its own elec tric light plant the tax payers are called upon to pay a In mill tax for this privilege as well as a I mill lax to pay for lighting purposes and at the same time tlin consumers are paying for their electric current at the same rate maintained by this old electric light company. An extra 2 mill levy was made for incorporation purposes, which will help to-make up the delicit. caused by the nonpayment of the sal ion license. The tax for grading was raised I mill and an increase of 2 mills was made lor waterworks purposes. No tax was levied for water this year, but next year :'i mill tax will be levied to pay for the ne\y deep well and im provements in the waterworks system. A 1 mill tax was levied for dragging, where this year no tax was levi' The only reduction made was for sew er. where this year there was a levy of 2 mills and next year no levy will be made. From the county treason r's ollic we learn that, this year for every mil! levied tile city received approximately $tir.n.»m. 'file tax levy last year bei ::u mills, the city administration had in round numbers $lU,rtiO with which to conduct the city affairs. In addition to this they received from the three saloons license money amounting to $r.,it0ti and an additional $!loii from the county saloon tax, making in all in round numbers $2i).3un. Next vea'r the taxes for the city of Denison will amount to -14 mills, which in round numbers will make $"ft.!»2r, an in crease over last year of approximately *2.«2r». The tax levy as made this year, in cluding county and state taxes, amounted to S5 mills. The state and county levy for llUti has not. as yet been made, bVit it is thought that it will be the same lis this year, with a raise probably of I mill. The taxc then for ll'ltl will be approximately 11)0 mills for the tax payers of the city of Denison.

WILL PRODABLY END THIS WEEK Large Number of Witnesses Fiom the Oak—May Postpone Opening of September Term of Court. The Marshall divorce ease holds the exclusive attention of tiie district court this week as it iid last, and in all probability will continue to hold attention until the last of the week, if not into the lirsi. of next week. In ease the divorce case should continue into next week ii may compel the postponement, of the opening of the icgular September term of court, which is scheduled to convene on Tuesday next. The prolongation of the trial is not entirely on account of the number of witnesses, hut. rather on account of the length of time taken in the ckuin itiation of them. The probabilities are that plaintiff will rest either this af ternoon or tomorrow forenoon :itul then the defense will occupy the slaiv for the remainder of the week, if not longiv. A large number of people have hi en over from Charter Oak as spectators ainf a sprinkling of Denison people has been in attendance. The case is being tried with considerable energy oil the part of the attorneys, but so far good nature seems to prevail and there is no reason why it should not until tho close of the case. On Tuesday morning by stipulation the deposition of Mrs. I. A. .Mains, of Charter Oak, was taken. The attor neys and the court reporter went to •Charter Oak on Tuesday morning, when her testimony was given and the record will not disclose any infor mality in the method of taking her'ev idence. but so far as the record dis closes it will appear that her testi mony was taken in court. This was done because Mrs. Mains' health was such that it was thought her coming to Denison to testify luiglu overtax her strength.
