Creek Merchants Find a Way to Es. cape the Payment. Other towns In tho Creek Nation nro now feeling tho gaff of the tribal tax. Today Inspector Wright sent notices to 'Very postmaster ln the Creek Nn Hon with Instructions to post It In a public place, culling on all merchants, to pay their tax by thv llrst of July or have their stores closed. This or dor ls to bo enforced by Indian police. The merchants of Muskogie have all paid, but tho amount they paid was way below what was expected. It was crtlmatcd that some of tho merchants would hav to pay as high us $5,000. So far tho highest amount that hag l.C'en paid Is $700, paid by the Pattor Fon Mercantile company, whoso toro was closed first and started tho sensa t'on over collecting the tax, nnd tho subsequent nrrost tif the Indian police. 'Iho government authorities ltavo no way of estimating how much a mer chant should pay. They cannot fix the tax. They merchants dropped on to thia and they are paying what they can afford to pay. and the government is not In a position to refuse it. Reports rocolvod from Tusla show that the merchants there are prepar ing lo dodge the tax by transferring their business. When n man sells out he does not have to pay the tax. His successor cnn get out on the minimum amount because he has Just gone into Luslncss. Merchants here who wero expected to pay at least $100 tax art getting out on anything from $25 to $00.
