going as fast aa 20 miles, but explained
that they were of the belief that it was
only when the pupils were out at re

levied in these cases.

Several men and women were in

Owing to a cut in the rates charged

than th revenue for 1916, according to
the annual report of revenues made
public yesterday. The total receipts
for 1917 were $720,262. while in 1918
they were $762,200.
The toss of revenue Is even greater

Is now puzzling the City Council of
The problem has been passed on to
the County Assessor, and through him
to the State Tax Commission. On its
decision will depend whether or not the
city has a few thousand dollars extra
for municipal purposes during the com

indicated by the fact that the Council's
budget estimates called for 26,000, but
this amount, being in excess of the
per cent limitation, had to be voted on
by the people and the proposed levy
was defeated.
In order to raise the largest amount
possible the Council now wishes to have
the amount to be raised from the city
as formerly bounded Increased by 6 per
cent, and to have the same rate apply
