"If members of the board attempt to strike down the assessments again this year their power will be tested in the Missouri Supreme Court.

ProfesBor of Eco nomics of the State University of Montana, and well known in this city, has been suspended from the Faculty of the Montana University on a chargo of insubordination, his friends hero learned yesterday. His suspension came on the day upon which he puD- t;t.n n t.An.rt nf nn nvpRtiirfltifin h& 1IDHUU I V.. V v o mode into the taxation of mines in Montana, in which he arrayed lacts intending to prove that tho mining intaraca flint. St.fttA are not bear ing their share of the burden of taxa tion and especially the Anaconaa cop per Mining Company, wnicn pays about 8 per cent of the taxes collected in the State and is a power politically. Professor Lovine went to Montana from this city in 1916. He had been the economic expert for the New York State Department of Labor and a lec turer at Columbia University. Ho has already , been seiectea to lecture at tne University a summer school this sea son. He is an authority on taxation and on labor and the author of "The Labor Movement in r ranee and otner works. The news of his suspension came as a surprise to some or his friends here and one of them in speak ing on the subject yesterday viewed hie Bnanonainn na "tha most recent in stance of interference with academic rfecdom." Early in last year the University of Mnninnn oiaioTiorl tn Professor Levine the task of making a study of the tax ation or property in Montana, ine tax system oi tne estate nas oeen ior ..nn -o Vin anKinf- nf rrit.irinm He completed his report and the following is the version or suDsequent events given by friends here: Mnnfnna ITniversltv intended to publish Professor Levine's report and with this oDject m view late in lasv year ho submitted to Chancellor El liot his manuscript. The latter told him that he would have typewritten copies made and suomit tnem to ine members of the Montana State Board r,t tf.i,inHnn T.sity.1- thn Chnr.eellor wrote that he thought it unwise to submit it and upon learning tnistfnc Professor wrote that he was willing to publish tho essay himself. He had a conference with the Chan cellor at which it is alleged the latter told him that tho University wished to bring the pamphlet out. It was the suggestion of the Chancellor that the work could go into type anu oe neiu until the Governor of the State as the hanl nt Hio Rtnrn R.inrd of Education should say whether it should be print ed or not. Following the conference rroles lor Levine went to Washington at the Amiaaf nf tnn Tiprmrtmpnt of Labor. Dn his return, it is said, he was told ,f hn nnh inner! trie renorx nis use fulness to tho University would be at n end. He puunsnea it ana on reo, flnu it nnnpnroH.

"The Taxation of Mines in Montana," Dr. Levine de clared there has been too much politics in linnllinc thn tflY Rit.lintion 1H that State. He devoted a whole chapter to tho Anconda Copper Mining Com pany, and this sums up that chapter: "rinrinir tho five vears. 19l.l-.'.7. the nvAmtyn nQupflnmAnt of the Anconda Copper Mining Company was 6.6 per cent of the total assessment of the State, and the company paid 6.7 per rant nf nil tavpj collected in the State. The company was assessed at about 25 per cent of its true value oi an its properties in Montana, while agricul tural lnnd in rmnrted tn have been as sessed at 35 per cent, live stock at 45 bank stoctc at eu per cent, uuring the Bame period the Anconda Copper Minino- fTnmnnnv nnid about the same number of mills on its assessment as all other property in the btut?; out the Anconda Copper Mining Company nniil nnlw nhnut ft millti ATI t.hn r.nti- matod true value of this Montana prop erties, while all otner property paiu on nn averago of 12 to 14 mills. And finally, the Anconda Copper Mining Company paid in taxes to the Stnte about 6 per cent of its income deriv ed from onorations in Montana while other property, especially farming property, paid an average of 10 of 12 per cent, inis, men, is tne compara tive tax burden in Montana in so far as it can be measured on the basis of available data." The case of Professor Levine was to havo been taken up by tho Univer sity authorities on Monday. What action they took is not known here.
