D. 9 91.00 WHERE I LK OF SHOWN BY Going back to school taxes shown at $3,896,463.53, and add tie amsunt shown at $275,802.96 as educational tax under state subdivision, it is found that we really levied in 1910 for school purposes $4,172,265.64, which is 41.63 per cent of all taxes levied, and which leaves for state pur poses 9.35 .per cent of the total tax levied.

AUDITORS OFFICE FURNISHES OARD OF EQUALIZATION WITH SOME INTERESTING DATA REGARDING. TAXATION —SCHOOLS REQUIRE LARGER PART OF MONEY FOR UPKEEP. Every year the taxpayers of the state pay much attention to the work of the State Board of Equalization. This interest has brought on the ques tion "how much difference does it make to the average taxpayer," andtables following is given some information which will show about how much dif ference it does make to the average taxpayer. It brings out the fact, at teast, that the state tax is but a com paratively small part of the total tax that you dig up each year. Taxes levied for school purposes furnished the larger part of your tax in 1910. and in addition to this there were Farm Land—Acreage 1910, 34.394,240 Value.

For state taxes $ 1.213.590.07 12.11 Of this amount $275,802.96 was lev ied according to law as "One Mill", or "Educational" tax, and directly ap-' portioned to the state educational in slituttions.

An other crowded day's program awaited him. It Included a climb to the topfourtyh'ourth of the tallest office building in the world—the Metropolitan Life tower— the way up whioh was not strange a tour through William McAdoo's Hudson tubes, a luncheon at the Ho tel Astor with the Japan Society of New York and the board of interna tional hospitality of the New York Peace society, an automobile ride through Central Park, and a visit to the tomb of General Grant on River side Drive. The little admiral decided not to tackle the whole program. He went to the top of the towei. and he went to the lunvheon at the Astor, but be-' tween times he lay down and took a forenoon siesta in his suite on themind—or eigth floor of the Knickerbocker Ho tel. When Mr. McAdoo called Togo begged off, explaining that he was too tired to go udder the river. Some time before he left, he said, he would go through the tubes, but today he wanted to take things easy. The visitor from Japan did not look as worn out as might be supposed when he arrived, all in white, at the Astor, puntcually at 12:30 o'clock, taxes for city, town, village and county purposes. But before you let anyone make you believe that you are be.ng robbed by "state taxes" just study tae following' and statements and see if there isn't something real startling in them for you. First is shown the total assessed valuation of all property in the state of North Dakota for 1910 as left by the State" Board of Equalization, and fol lowing each classification will be given the percentage of the total as sessment whidh each separate classi fication Furnished in 1910. Per cent. 52.530 18.630 14.480 6.086 3.972 3.556 .039 .130 .117 .021 99.661 Following is shown the classifica tion under which the taxes were levied, together with the amount for such purpose and the. percentage of the whole tax levied whioh such class! fication equals. Amount Per cent. the amount of state tax which is levied for state purposes only against each 160-acre tract of land in 1911, figuring that the levy for state purposes will be ,4 4-10 mills as it was in 1910. The 'increases or decreases nude by the state board of equalization can only make a difference so far as the state tax is concerned, and from this statement It will be comparatively easy to figure out what it will amount to. In the county there is just so much money to be raised' to meet the expenseof the county, if the valua tion be high the rate must be low, and if the valuation be low then the rate must be high. $2.15 McLean 3.30 4.251 Mercer 2.99 2.90 .Morton ..... 2.84 2.05!

There were two flights of stairs to climb when the party reached the forty-fourth floor.

He did look relieved when Chanler Hale third assistant secretary of state, presented Mayor Gaynor. The Mayor and Togo had met before, of course, but they stood and chatted for some time. They had a great organ playing the Japanese national march when Togo entered the ballroom. He recognized the air and smiled agreeably, as he moved to the raised platform, along the east side of the room, on which the guests table stood. There were places for eighteen a" this table, To go's being on the right hand side of Lindsay Russell, president of the Jap an Society.
