Italy had been bartering about her

favorable to the German cause. So
Italy case its lot with the Allies.
Its actual entry into the conflict

OLD TAX PROBLEM
UP BEFORE SENATE
Large Discounts Offered
Counties To Settle On
Old Property Levy
Dully Uiuimtch Dureua,
In the Sir Walter Hotel,
Raleigh. April 29. —Pursuing its
course of thel ast month, the Senate
failed again to agree on a question
of revenue for the next biennium
when it. deferred until today action
on. the bill by Senator Newman, fin
ance chairmn, of New Hnover, to ex
tend to counties a discount of ten per
cent in order to induce them to pay
into the State cfofer about $500,000
due from uncollected taxes under the
now-abolished 15-cent ad valorem
levy for the support of schools.
The bill would offer a discount of
two per cent to cover overcharges and
errors, three per cent for collection
charges, and additional discounts tor
prompt settlments. The additional dis
counts would be allowed on the fol
lowing basis: five per cent if paid be
fore next November 1. two per cent
if paid before December 1, and one
per cent if paid before January 1.
Practically every county in the state
owes the State uncollected taxes un
der the 15 cent levy on the SIOO as.
sessed property valuation. The tax is
no longer levied, having been replaced
with the retail sales tax.
The measure was offered by Senator
Newman in an effort to get the coun
ties to pay'up. Senator Newman has
already included in his revenue bill
estimated collections under this item.
When the .bill appeared on the cal
endar for action, Senator Johnson, of
Duplin, sent up an amendment which
would allow the State treasurer to
settle with counties on whatever dis
count basis he should deem advisable.
Opposing the amendment was Sen
ator Allsbrook, of Halifax, who said
that it would allow too much latitude
for politicians. He deolared that he
did not believe that the State treas
urer himself (Chiles Johnson) would
like the amendment, At once Senator
Johnson was on his feet. "The only
reason (Senator Allsbrook is opposing
this amendment is because he dislikes
me personally,” Routed the Duplin
Senator. Senator Allsbrook denied the
allegation and a compromise was
reached under which the maximum
discount permitted any county would
be ten per cent.
