THE nONTPELIER EXAMINER.
MONTPELIER, IDAHO, FRIDAY, JANUARY, 31, 1902. VDL. VII. No. 49. i the VALUATION OF LIVE STOCK. The following is the rate agreed upon by the assessors, at their convention in Boise, as the basis on which live stock is to be assessed in the various counties: per head, i ality for $18.00 30.00 10.00 2.25 25.00 Stock cattle, Beef cattle, Yearlings, Sheep, Milch cows, Range horses, Stock hogs, The committee that made up the schedule was headed by Jas. R. Hart, of this county, who was chairman. The rate as lixed is very close to the actual cash value of the stock, except as to the range horses. These should have been $10 at least, as sales of this class of horses at Idaho Falls and other points have been made at $14 per head. 44 44 u it i t U For the as and in of «( 44 6.00 44 44 3.00 44 44 i THE DEMAND FOR HORSES. It certainly seems to the Examiner that there is a splendid, permanent market opening to the farmers of Bear .Lake for heavy draft horses, demand a great many horses of the heavy kind and the man agers of those companies are continually scouring south eastern Idaho for this class of horses. They pay good prices for the animals and they use a great number. During recent years there has been little demand for horses and the breeders have allowed the business to go by default, but the demand has again come and it seems certain to be permanent from now on. Therefore it behooves those in a position to do so, to start the breeding and raising of heavy horses. There is more money in raising a good horse than these is in a steer at a like age, and the demand is equally as good. Tens of thousands of dollars ought to be brought to Bear Lake every year and exchanged for horseflesh* and it will be when the business is aghin taken hold of with vigor. The mines at Diamondville The Nampa Leader need not worry over our democracy. When the party gets through chasing around after a few political skates, offering them the brownest biscuit on the plate if they "only will fuse," while they let party principles go to the demnation bow-wows, then we will feel more like getting out and drilling for Jeffersonian ideas of government. It seems to us that the party's democracy needs fixing a great deal more than some of us do, and from present indications the next convention is going to fix it, too. /r if there is any oil at Fossil, and we know there is, no less than one hundred Moutpelier citizens will be reveling in ■wealth within another year. The town needs a few million aires in its business. » m Four men in Pocatello have quit drinking since the Tribune published that wild iuan story.

If snow fails to fall dur ing ihat month then wates if liable to be a very scarse article in this section during the coming summer. This January pas been the most remarkable mouth ever experienced in the history of Bear Lake. Money Lenders Must pay License In the case of the State of Idij,ho vs. the Union Central Life Insurance has the ment the ing J company, an Ohio corporatism, ap pealed from Bingham county. The supreme court has handed down a decision affirming the constitution- must ality of section 1344 R. S. This is the section that provides for tùe collection of a license from to has and aids lic as void, fall bankers, money lenders and others. Payment of this license has been very generally refused on the ground that the section was unconstitutional. For that reason the decisiofi is of the very highest importance, as it indicates that all such persons and corporations as are designated in the section are subject to payment of the license. There is involved not only the possibility of collection of this license in the futurè, hut also col lection of unpaid license for past years. Section 1644 is as follows; Section 1644—Persons, dissocia tions or corporations engaged m the occupation of hanking, loaning money at interest, or in buying or selling notes, bonds, or oilier evi dences of indebtedness- of private persons, or in buying or selling state. territorial, county or city stocks, or other evidences <>f state, territorial, county or city itidebte^L ness; or stocks or notes, bi>nds,/or I i other evidences of indebtedness of incorporated companies, or in |>uy ing or selling gold dust, golo\or silver bullion,or gold or silver com, are di'vided into five classes, and must pay license as follow^: 1— Those doing business in the aggregate to the amount of two hun dred and fifty thousand dollars per quarter and over, constitute the first class, and must pay a license of one hundred dollars per quartef. 2— Those doing business to the amount of two hundred thousand dollars and less than two hundred and fifty thousand dollars her quar ter, constitute the second blass, and must pay a license of eighty dollars page the a up big < 4 of - 3— Those doing business to the amount of one hundred thousand dollars per quarter constitute the third class, and must pay a license of fifty dollars per quarter, 4— Those doing business to the amount of fifty thousand dollars, and less than one hundred thousand per quarter. a dollars per quarter, constitute the fourth class, and must pay a license of forty dollars per quarter. 5—Those doing business in auy amount under fifty thousand dollars per quarter, constitute the fifth class, and must pay a license of thirty dollars per quarter. The case in which the decision or the has been rendered was brought in the name of the state to inforce pay ment of a license of $30 peu* quarter» the company being engaged m loan ing money in Bingham county. J udge Rich decided that the license must be paid and the case was taken to the supreme court, and that body has sustained Judge Rich. The supreme court among other things said: The litfcnse system is a separate and distinct way of raising revenues independent of the tax system, and aids largely ih carrying on the pub lic school system of our state and as before stated, if the license m question is unconstitutional and void, then the whole system must fall i In the ease of State vs. Dougherty, leported in the Second Idaho at page 1105, involving a liquor license the constitutional question wa* urged, hut this court held that the license tax" could be collected. The effect of this decision is that a good many people in Bear Lake besides the bank will have to dig up this license tax. If the counties decide to collect all hack licenses, a big wad of money w-ill be turned into the treasury._-—- < 4 ^"marriage of Cokeville People.
