Farmers of Bannock County to
Test Law Taxing Certain
Ilbn. Theodore Turner of Ban
croft, Bannock county, is spending
the day in the city on business,
says Monday's Capital News.
Turner filled tbe office of state aud
itor under Morrison's administra
tion, but since retiring from that
office he bas been living on a farm
Bancroft which he has greatlv
proved until he has one of the
finest farms and farm homes in the
i in
Mr. Turner »täte» that the farm
er» of hi» »ec-tion arc g«»ing to con
test in the coart» tbe enforcement
of the law, House Bill No. 128,
passed by tbe last session of the
legislature providing for the pay
ment of an annual license tax by all
few wbicb
corporations except a
were exempted by tbe law.
He says that many small irriga
tion companies had to be formed in
bis part of the state for tbe purpose
of getting water on the land. The
stock in theae companies is all
owned by the farmers who, for tbe
most part, paid tbe amount of the
stock hy way of work on tbe eanala.
The «reams in that section are
small and are so located that a few
ranch owners by going in together,
could get water upon tbe land, while!
_never would be uaed, the individual
without such organisation the water
rancher being too poor to take the
water out, build the eanala and cut
tivate his soil and .the projects are
small to warrant any men of
capital to take hold of them.
Theae poor men, in «rder to make
their land productive and in order
build up homes for themselves,
forme«! small Block companies.
They were formed to pay a large
incorporation fee at the time, and
they have to pay taxes on the lamt
which is made valuable only Un-atise
their own efforts in this directum,
and now they think it a decided
hardship that the slate should a»k
them to pay an annual license la*
"The various rich insurance com
panies are exempted from tbe tax.
are the rich bonding companies
who were fortunate enough to have
agents in tbe legislature," said Mr.
Turner, "and the mining companies
were able to have their interest«
looked after ao that corporations of
that kind do not bave to to pay the
tax unless they have productive
The injustice of the law was also
pointed out in tbe case of fair asso
ciations, which are slock companies,
organized for public benefit, but
which never expect to make any
profit to the holders of stoc k. They
will have to pay on the full author
ized capital whether it has ever
been subscribed or not.
Mr. Turner say« the farmers of
Bannock county are very hitter on
account of the law. lie says they
cannot sec why the farmers of the
north, upon whose land Go«! lets
tbe rain fall, should be more favored
by the legislature in the matter of
taxation than the farmer of the
aouth, who lias reclaimed a hone
from the desert and has made acres
of land fertile, which without h s
effort, would never have been pr -
They do not believe tbe law is
constitutional and a test case will be
made to bave it set aside.

Acting upon order* issued by
County Attorney Gray of Bannock
county, tbe sheriff of that county on
Tuesday gave notice to all of the
inmates of the walled city that they
must close their houses of prostitu
tion and depart from Pocatello on
or before .Monday, July I. The
sheriff waa instructed to enfor«* the
order to the letter. The county at
tomey's order came as somewhat of
surprise to the city autboritiea,
but the Tribune stales that the order
will not be reaiste«l by tbe city ad
ministration. Tbe closing of thc
red light district will deprive the
city of revenue to the amount of
about #000 per month, but tbe ifiiy
attorney favors substituting there
for a higher license all down tin
tine and a higher (ax levy.
larger cities have tried driving
Ibia class of women out by closing
tbe houaes in the districts in which
they resided, but it baa always re
suited in the women scattering to
rooming bouses in various parts <»M
the towns and tbe element waa thu»
much harder to control than when
confined to one certain district.
Whether ibu will be the result in
Pocatello remains to be seen, but
the county attorney thinks that the
police will be able to prevent it.
