Time For Paying Taxes Extended.

for the payment of taxes until February
became a law to-night at 12 o'clock, wit

Talking to-night about the course he pt
sued since the resolution went into his pc
sesion, he said:
"Upon general principles Iam opposed
the etson of time for paying taxes 1:
cause it entails additional labor on treast
ers and complicates the fiscal affairs of t)
State. This is the only year within n
knowledge that such an extension has be<
neenasary, but while I never intended
veto the resolution the fact that there 'w
not enough money in the State treasury
meet the January interest on the publ
debt and current expenses caused me
withhold my signature and thereby for
all who were really able to pay their tax
to do so. It is usually the rich corpor
tions, banks, etc, that are benefitted by
etension anyway. The law goes into
feet to-night at 12 M. without my haviu
approved it. I could not veto it, knowii
the situation of the people, and my desi:
was to protect the State's credit."-Nezcsa
