CORPORATIONS MUST PAY DELINQUENT $10 TAX GOVERNOR PARDEE TO PUBLISH PROCLAMATION Unless They Come Forward With the Money by December 13 They Will Forfeit All Right to Do Business In This State By Associated Presa. SACRAMENTO, Oct. 15.— The issu ance of Governor Pardee's proclamation announcing the names of corporations, domestic and foreign, that have not yet complied with the provisions of the corporation license law passed by the last legislature, has revived interest in the requirements imposed by the law. The law was recommended by Secretary of State Curry, who found it necessary for the expedition of the business of his office to sort out and abandon the articles of incorporation of concerns that are dead and forgotten, but that still cumber the archives and Impose double duties upon a portion of his office force. Under tSe law each domestic corpora tion is taxed $10 a year for a license entitling It to do business under its charter, and a like sum is exacted from foreign corporations for permis sion to do business in the state. In ense the provisions of the law are not complied with the domestic concerns forfeit their charters and the foreign firms forfeit the right to continue to do business In the state. If the tax Is not paid by the last^of August It becomes delinquent and a penalty of $5 is added. This must be paid within sixty days after the issuance by the governor of a proclamation announcing the names of the concerns that have not compiled with the provisions of the law. The proclamation was issued, yesterday, and forfeiture will be due December %13,% 13, unless in the meantime delinquents shall have settled with the state. There are In the office of the secre tary of state articles of incorporation of 43,000 concerns. A notice was sent to each of them, with a copy of tho law inclosed, that the license tax was due. About 20,000 of these were re turned, marked "not delivered" in dicating that the corporation had died; 8,609 corporations have paid the license tax of $10 and nearly a thousand have paid the tax and the $5 penalty. A rough estimate places the number of live corporations In the state at from 16,000 to 20,000 and those that have not yet responded are delinquent, and unless they pay up by or on December 13 they will forfeit their right to con tinue business In the state as corpora tions. Under the law the publication of the governor's proclamation in two news papers was made • mandatory, ana Governor Pardee named as such newspapers the Sacramento Union and the Oakland Enquirer. The publication In the Union will be made tomorrow morning; in the Enquirer tomorrow afternoon. GEN.
