The Financier says : A ft : > .lire of the statement of the asso ciated banks of New York City for the week ended October I5 that has attracted fomei attention MUS the shrinkage In loans. It Is rafier difficult to explain the lo s , cx- cert 0:1 the theory that there has been a great deal of liquidation In stock exciange business , and In analysis of the Items of the Individual banks shows that the loan changes In two large Institutions the Na tional Union and the National City banks- account for the difference reported since the previous week. The effect of the gold Ini- 5101 ts Is shown In the cast < of specie. The gain of legal tenders the first expansion In this Item since August 2S seems to show that the Interior movement Is nearlng an end. This Is not exactly to ! case , although the ilrain miring the week has In en less than usual and the trcasmy demands have betn light. All the gold Imported hist week doen not figure In the totals , so that It Is renttissahle to suppose that the position of the. banhw , so far as cash Is concerned , I * stronger tfv.in Indicated. The statement points to an easier money market , In the absence of any marked nctlvl y In specula tion , and 'he otllclal ftatements of fie ri- tlonal bnnks of the 1'nlted Stiles as pub- lls.ied last week , showing their strong poil- tlou with reference to reserves , strensihen this view. The rising rates for money abroad and the continued ease here , fore shadow a Httuatlon such as prevailed last season , when the United States sent large iMiiou"J to Kurojie on sterling bills.

TAX1.VO SHKKP IX THAX.SIT. .Supreme Court \Vj-oiiilnnr I" A CHKVBNNK , Wyo. . Oct. 17.-Speclal.- ( ) Thcro wns argued before the supreme court of Wyoming yesterday a question of vital Interest not only to the state of Wyoming , but to the neighboring states. Tlio decision of the court will settle the right of the state to tax large bniuls of sheep which are driven tbrough this state every fall. For scvoral years Wyoming legislatures have adopted laws authorizing the taxation- of such sheep , and many bitter contests have been waged In the different legislatures with reference to such provisions. Tlio 1895 legis lature passed n law making It the duty of thu county assessor to assess nil live Block brought Into the state for the purpose of grazing and to collect a full year's tax from the owners of such live stock. In 1895 one John Kelley of Nebraska was driving a band of 10,000 sheep from Utah to Pine Dlults , Wyo. , at which plnce they wetc to be loaded on the cars and shipped to the Chicago mar ket. 0. P. Hhodes , at that time assessor of the county of Laramlc , taking with him a deputy sheriff , demanded n full year's tax from Kelley's agent. The agent refused to pay the tax , whereupon llhoeles threatened to seize enough sheep to satisfy the claim of the county and sell them. Thereupon the agent paid the tax , and suit wns Immediately brought against Hhodes for Its recovery. The district court of Laramie county re served the case to the supreme court of the state of Wyoming , asking the opinion of the latter upon ccttaln < | uestlons of law. In the argument yesterday Mr. Kelley'n attorney. Secretary of State Uurdlck , Insisted that the act of the legislature of 1895 wns void as nn Interference "with Interstate ccm- merce. It was claimed that the sheep were brought Into -the state for the purprse of taking them on their way cast to market and that being merely In tra.islt through the state the provision of the United States constitution denying to states the rlgh : to tax Interstate commerce applied , and that the act ot the Wyoming legislature was therefore void. The act was also attacked on the ground that It lock from the owners ct property their property with out due process of law , and wns therefore void as being In conflict with the state and federal constitutions. The county ot Laramle , through County Attorney H. W. Brcckous , claimed that the state had the right to adopt such legislation. H was said that the act , merely taxi'd sheep brought into the state for the purpose of gracing and did not , by Its terms , Include sheep In transit through the state to some neighboring state. While Mr. Kelley claimed tlmt hl3 sheep were merely brought en hoof through the state of Wyoming for the pur pose of taking them to market , this claim was controverted by the facts In the case. The usual inethcd of shining live stock at the picscnt time wns by rail and when sheep were carried to market in a different and unusual manner and increased in value while being so carried it was , plain that the evldsut purpose of so taking them to market waste to Increase their value and to get the benefit of the open range In the state. This , the ceunty claimed , was an Identification of the property with the mass of the property of the state , and It was therefore taxable. The contention of Kelley , that the act permitted the taking of property without duo course of law , was denied. The consti tutional rule was applied In cases only w'ncre the duties ot the assessor were judicial in their nature and not ministerial. So far as the duties of the assessor In the state of Wyoming are concerned , It was said that they were purely ministerial , since , by the constitution ot this state , the state board of equalization has power to fix the value of the sheep , and the only thing left for the assessor to do Is to ascertain the number of the sheep. Other qiiestlona were also raised by the parties In their arguments , presenting prop ositions which have never been settled by the supreme court In this state. It was claimed In the argument by the county that the payment by Kelley was a voluntary pay ment anel that no recovery could be had , and further , that the suit , Instead of being brought against Rhodes as assessor , should have been brought against him In his Indi vidual capacity. The decision of the court In this case will settle to a large extent the. validity of the act of the Wyoming legislature for 1S95 con cerning which there was so much dbiusMlon. The act of lS9"i ! was repealed by the 1S97 leg islature in a bill enacted which also pro vided for the taxation of sheep bro'uht Into the state for the purpose of grazing , and settling in detail the manner in which county officers should proceed In the collec tion of the tax. The decision of the court will be awaited with Interest by both cattlemen and sheep men. The cattlemen maintain that. Inas much as the sheep owners not only share the benefits of the state with other property owners , but that their property ruins the range , they shoulld bo compelled to pay taxes with other property owners. On the other hand , the sheepmen claim that they have the right to take their sheep to mar ket In whatever manner they choose , and that whllo passing through any given state thcv arc protected by the provisions of the Ui'ltoil States constitution relating to Inter state commerce. At the conclusion of the arguments , which wore very lengthy ami exhaustive , the court took the matter under advisement. An Honest Itenu-il j .
