The Particular Licenses Which Fall Under the Provisions of Alderman Holding's Resolution. The Chronicle has had numerous in quiries with respect to the special li cense taxes which Alderman Holding proposes to repeal. For the benefit of those interested, the taxed objects which fall under the provisions of the resolution are given. If the resolution shall be adopted, of course the license taxes which are now levied on them will be repealed . Upon the proprietors of each hotel with a capacity for hfty or more guests, twenty-five dollars, and upon the pro prietors of other hotels, twelve and one- halt dollars each. Upon the proprietors of each res taurant or eating house, twelve dollars aud fit t y cents. Upou every auctioneer or crier of goods at public auctiou, a license tax of twenty-five dollars a year: Provided, that this section shall not conflict with the provisions of section twenty-two hundred and eighty four of The Code. Every person who cries goods at public auction under the provisions of this section, without having first obtained a license therefor from the chief of po lice, shall be fined lifty dollars for every offense. Upon every stock and bond broker, sewing machine company, dealer in musical instruments, keepers of sales stables or stock yards, doing business in the city, a license tax of twenty-five dollars a year. Every person who fol lows any of the business vocations of the city as mentioned in this section, without first having obtained from the chief of police a license therefor, shall bo fined twenty-five dollars for every offense. Sec. 19. Upon every lawyer, physic iau, dentist, cotton broker, bill poster, street huckster, photographer, merchan dise or produce broker, ice dealer, deni er in woou auu coal or eitner, insur ance company or insurauce ate? cy for every company represented, a license tax of ten dollars a year. These are the objects which will come up for reconsideiaiion at the special meeting next Thursday night. Alderman Holding's orginal resolu tion proposed the repeal of the license on the following objects: Upon too owner or proprietor of each omnibus drawn by four or more horses, used for livery purposes or for the trans portation of persons for hire, fifteen dollars. Upou the owner or proprietor of each omnibus drawn by two horses, used us above stated, seven dollars and fifty ; cents. Upou the owner or proprietor of each ' two-horsj carriage, hack, ubrc'on or I other vehicle, by whatever name called, 1 used as above stated, five dollars. Upon the owner or proprietor of each buggy, wagon or other vehicle drawn by one horse, used as above stated, two dollirs and fifty cents. Upon the owner or proprietor of every two-horse dray or wagon, used for the transportation of freight, or bag gage, or any article for hire, five dol lars. Upon the owner or proprietor of every one horse dray or wagon, used as stated in paragraph above, threo dollars. The repeal of the tax on these, how ever, was opposed by such a decided tnaj rity at the meeting on last Thurs day night that alderman Uoldiug ex punged them from his resolution. He voted in favor of the repeal of the tax on alt of them, and therefore cannot move for a reconsideration. If, however, there shall appear at the meeting on next Thursday night a strong sentiment in favor of the repeal of the license tax on othor objects and businesses Mr. olding will ask some member of the board who voted against the repeal of the tax on these objects to move for a reconsideration, so they may come before the board again. The resolution leaves the tax on bar rooms, pool and billiard tables, skating rinks, shooting galleiies, bowling alleys, pawn shops, junk dealers, circuses, shows, peddlers, itinerant merchants and like matters.
