MERCANTILE APPRAISER WILL IN A FEW DAYS FORWARD BLANKS. New Law Hn. Nuw Rone Into Kfleet anil lltiHine.s People Should Fnmllinrlze Thomnol.ea Willi It. Provisions—Liquor Men Must Pay Tax If Tliey Sell Cigar.. The county treasurer has received the necessary blanks and forms for the purpose of having the status of retail and wholesale dealers in goods, wares and merchandise fixed fnr taxation. The county commissioners have appoint ed George I'. Stroma as mercantile ap praiser and ho will immediately send out the blanks to the various dealers. The new act was passed May 22, 1899, and went into effect .January 1, 1900. Under this act the mercantile appraiser must within ten days after he mails the blank call in persou to see that it is properly filled up, and swear the party or parties to whom it has been sent to its correctness. If he is not satisfied with the vender's statement he can ex amine him under oath. If the vender refuses or neglects to fill in the blank he can be summoned to appear before the county treasurer and he made to produce his books. If the vender is dissatisfied with the amount of business assessed against him, lie can appeal to the court of common pleas. The only classification under the act is in separating venders into wholesale and retail dealers. For that purpose a wholesaler shall be considered that per son "who shall soli to dealers in or ven ders of goods, wares and merchandise and to no other persons." All parties assessed as retailers pay 82 tax and a further tax of ono mill on each dollar of gross business transacted and the whole sale dealer 83 and one-half mills on each dollar of the gross business for the year. No sales are exempted by the act, except the sale of liquors. Under the act every liquor doaior who soils cigars will have to pay a retail tax. Under the old law many exceptions were allowed, the principal reason being that the vendors' sale was not sufficient to put hiin In the class designated by the appraiser. All tho decisions of the court, however, as to the non-ability still stands and are in force, so far as regards exemptions of venders for sell ing goods of their own manufacture or production. CoimulHslouerH' Appointment!*. The deadlock existing among the county commissioners over the appoint ment of clerks, mentioned in Monday's issue, was broken on Monday by tho announcement of tho following appoint ments: Chief clerk, Thomas R. Peters, Wllkesbarre; assistant, Levi Woodruff, Shickshinny. Clerks, John J. Norton, Wilkesbarre; J. B. Laubach, Freeland; William Jones, Pittston; George F. Henry, Wilkesbarre; G. E.

McGovern, of Wilkesbarre. Fif teen ballots were taken, but all resulted the same, each candidate receiving the vote of the commissioner who placed him in nomination.
