To do this, just get about four ounces of plain, common liquid arvon from any drug store (this is all you will need), apply it at night when retiring; use enough to moisten the scalp and rub it in gently with the finger tips. By morning, most if not all, of your dandruff will be gone, and lliree or four more applications will completely dissolve and entirely destroy every single sign and trace of it, no matter how much dandruff you may have. You will find all itching and digging of the scalp will stop instantly, and your hair will be fluffy, lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and look and feel a hundred times better.—Adver tisement.

New York, and a represen tative of the Harrisburg Railways company, met this afternoon. Chairman E. C. Henderson, of the Highway committee, who has been in charge of the negotiations to have parts of the borough's main business street repaved, was in charge of the inspection. The men went over the entire street and took notes on the work which must be done. It is likely that the various interests will get to gether and have the work started within a short time. For several months Chairman Hen derson has been endeavoring to have the street repaired without expense to the borough but the paving company and traction company could not reach any agreement with the borough.

ANTHRACITE TAX DECLARED VOID [Continued From First Pa«e.] Justice Stewart. The principles in volved, It Is believed here, cover the latest act. By the decision the Commonwealth will lose about $10,000,000 and likely any chance of getting tax under the 1915 act. The suit was based on the tax assessed for the latter half of 1913. The auditor general made no assessments for 1914 or (the portion of 1915 prior to the approval of the new act on June 1, 1915. Dauphin county loses $65,000 which would have been its share under the division of Income plan of the act. By this law the State would have kept half of the proceeds of fhe tax and given the balance to the anthracite producing counties for division among their municipal divisions. Harrlsburg loses $20,000. About $19,500 has been paid into the State Treasury by coal companies and individual operators under pro test. The auditor general will dis pose of this money. Some may be credited for tax payments of other kinds, but the rest may have to await legislative enactment to be returned. The attorney general's department, which defended the act, and the auditor general's department, which enforced the collection until stopped | by the suit, declined to make any statements to-day. Who Will Keep Millions? What Is of far more interest to the public than what happens to the gov ernmental agencies by reason of the decision is what will become of the millions of dollars paid by users of coal in the last two years. When the tax became operative it is understood that the operators put on enough to cover the tax. Wholesalers and re tailers are said to have paid it In some cases, but in others to have arranged for repayment if the tax was knocked out. Few tons of coal have been bought by consumers with out the increased tax being charged against the householder. In some parts of the State the tax was declared extortionate and the last Legislature took cognizance of it and started an Investigation. Attorneys said to-day that recovery was a matter for individuals, and un less a man has the tax itemized on his bills he will stand a poor show of re covering. _ . _ No Immediate Reduction Retailers said to-day that they had bought their winter supply of coal and had paid or arranged to pay the equivalent of the tax required by wholesalers anfl from the wholesalers by the operators. Several men Inter viewed said they did see how there would be any reduction in present prices for some months and whole salers frankly said that they were not prepared to say that prices would bo cut. The general fear was expressed about the streets that the price would stay up until Spring in spite of the decision. . „ Greut Victory for Olmsted & Stamm The decision is regarded as a notable achievement for the firm of Olmsted & Stamm, attorneys at law, composed of William S. Snyder, C. B. Miller. John T. Olmsted and James W. Milhouse. A greater amount of tax is involved in these coal cases than In any other decisions handed down for a great many years. The firm of Olmsted & Stamm represents clients who would have been llahle for about $4,000,000 of this tax in case the act had been held to be constitutional. The cases originated in the Dauphin County Court and Judge Kunkel handed down a decision holding the act constitutional. The attorneys for the coal companies, believing that the decision of the lower court was not sound, took an appeal to the Supreme Court of the State of Pennsylvania. The test case Is that of the Aldon Coal Company. This particular case does not involve a great amount of tax, but the whole question of the consti tutionality of the act is raised in this case. Act Unconstitutional Yesterday t-ne Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, sitting at Pittsburgh, I handed down its decision in the test 1 case of the Alden Coal Company, No. 20, May term, 19X5. The question for determination was the right of the Commonwealth to impose a tax of 2% per cent, of the value of each ton of anthracite coal mined, no tax hav ing been imposed upon any other kind of coal within the Commonwealth. The attorneys for the Alden Coal Com pany contended that the act of June 27, 1913( Pamphlet laws 639), under the provisions of which the tax was Imposed, was wholly unconstitutional and void for a number of reasons. The Supreme Court upheld the contention of the attorneys for the Alden Coal Company, holding that under the pro visions of the State Constitution re quiring uniformity of taxation anthra cite coal can not be taxed while bitu minous coal is not taxed, because there are no such inherent differences between the two kinds of coal as to justify the taxation of one and the exemption from taxation of the other. As 40 per cent, of the anthracite coal marketed is made up of the smaller, or steam sizes, and is sold in direct competition with bituminous coal, the court, held that the taxation of an thracite. while bituminous is exempt ed, is a violation of the uniformity taxation provisions of the Constitution and cannot be sustained under the power given in the Constitution to classify taxable property. It was fur ther claimed by the attorneys that the act. is unconstitutional because of the manner provided in section 5 of tht act for the distribution of the tax. Under the provisions of this section the tax Is returned to the various municipal districts in the counties pro ducing anthracite coal in the propor tion of their population. The Alden Coal Company showed to the court, that the result of such a distribution would be that some districts in which not a pound of coal is found or mined would receive more coal tax than th<j present total municipal expenditures of such municipalities. Some districts would annually receive as much as three, four and even five times as much coal tax as has been expended annually in past years for municipal purposes. Among lawyer* the decision is con sidered a notable victory for the attor neys representing the Alden Coal Com pany because it is the first time the Supreme Court of the State has de clared any classification of taxable property unconstitutional, every other Instance of classification having been heretofore upheld. Cost Mr. Harrisburger SIO,OOO Wholesale and retail coal dealers 111 Harrisburg generally were of the opinion that the prices of this win ter's coal at least will not be affected by the Supreme court's decision. Figures as to what Mr. Harris burger actually paid out in dollars and cents since the coal tax was imposed could only be based on estimates ac cording to Walter U Montgomery, president of the Harrisburg Coal Dealer's Exchange. He said that per haps 200,000 tons had been purchased and that the average increase which the consumer paid might aggregate seven and a half cents a ton or about SIO,OOO. "What effect if any the decision will have on local dealers Is a matter of conjecture," said he, "although I CHILD'S TONGUE BECOMES COATED IF CONSTIPATED If cross, bilious, sick, feverish, or full of cold, take no chances. "California Syrup of Figs" can't harm tender stomach, liver, bowels. Children love this "fruit laxative," and nothing else cleanses the tender stomach, liver and bowels so nicely.

If there will be any difference in view of the fact that most all of the bins have been stocked up for the winter and in purchasing this we have had to pay the two and a half per cent, increased tax imposed by the State." At the offices of the United Ice and Coal Company, the Fry Coal Company and H. M. Kelly, practically the same statement was issued. D. W. Cox, one of the city's big wholesalers, said his firm had received no intimation from the operators on (lie question but that he doubted if the retail prices for this winter would be materially affected, if at all, as most, of them had already laid in their sup plies.
