As a re sult of the warning Issued by Attor ney General Dcnman relative to a posslblo deficit in tho state treasury leaders of both parties, Governor Har mon and Attorney General Denman have been busy shaping future events so that tho passage by the house of the L-ngdon taxation bill today seems more than a possibility, and prompt action by tho senate Is also predicted. Tho Smith bill, limiting the tax rate to 1 per cent, also Is said to be cer tain of passago by both branches. These measures aro designed to re lievo the revenue situation, which, ac cording to Attorney General Dcnman, is very serious since the validity of the Colo law, under which tho state receives from corporations annually tho huge sum of $2,300,000, Is to be tested in the courts, and the state offi cials are known to entertain little faith that tho courts will uphold the statute. Governor Harmon sent a letter to Denman in which ho emphasized the attitude which the attorney gen eral Las taken, that tho Langdon measure when It passes the legisla ture should put all public utility cor porations on the Nichols law basis of taxation, which is on the market val ue of securities.
