Jefferson City, Mo., Feb. 28. If the
members of the State Board of Equal
ization again attempt to reject the
full valuations made by County As
sessors, their power will be tested in
the Missouri Supreme Court, declared
Cornelius Roach, chairman of the
State Tax Commission, before the
House Ways and Means Committee
last night.
Roach appeared in behalf of the se
ries of Morgan tax bills, which pro
pose reductions in State, county, mu
nicipal and school tax levies, with
property being assessed at 100 per
cent valuation.
Whereas, Francis M. Carter, by his
certain School Fund Mortgage, dated
the 7th day of March, 1914, and re

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

and on labor and the author of "The

is the version or suDsequent events
given by friends here:

him that he would have typewritten

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.

Tn ,! ronnrt. "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.
