finds objection In that these funds havs
to be always on hand while other funds
are out of money. '
"A multiplicity of funds." he says, 'is
a source of extra work frequently hold
ing up money needed for other purposes,'
and when disbursed through other chan
nels than this office, as other expenses
of the stats government, they are not
always accounted for."
Among his estimates for the expenses
of the state government during the com
ing two years there appears $10,000 for
stats fair premium list, and all the gen
eral expenses as provided by law, and
he says, "while the estimated amount
of revenue required for stats purposes
for ths yesr 1101 to be apportioned
January next cannot be foretold with
any absolute certainty, the probabilities
are that It will exceed $1,000,000. due
principally to the neceaalty of providing
for the remainder of the appropriation
for the Lewis and Clark Centennial ex-
sltion snd to deficiencies in the ap
Dprlationa for ths expenses of the
asylum and penitentiary, and for public
printing for the years 1903 and 1904,
and to a smaller amount of receipts
from miscellaneous sources."
Mr. Dunbar says:
"The removal of the mute school from
Its present location to the corporate
limits of the city has been urged, tha
eatlmatad expense of which," tor new
bulldinga and furnishings, la 170.000,
and it is proposed that the buildings
now used by tha school be converted to
an institution for ths care of feeble
minded children, or a reformatory for
female Juvenile offenders."
In a discussion of the Eddy corpora
tion law which Secretary Dunbar com
mends, he suggests a law providing for
the dissolution of corporations that havs
ceased doing business, by proclamation
of the governor.
Dunbar commenda the Inheritance tax
law, and saya that it la working satis
factorily. Of Insurance lawa he says:
"I respectfully invite your attention
to section S724 of our statutes, which
provides that 'All orders or secret' so
cieties and other benevolent, fraternal,
co-operative societies, associated or In
corporated for the sols purpose of mu
tual protection and relief of members
only, and for the paymsnt of stipulated
sums of money to tha families of de
ceased members, or for property of Its
members only, destroyed by fire, and
not for profit, are hereby declared not
to be fire or life Insurance companies In
the sense and meaning of the Insurance
laws of the stats, and ars exempt from
the provisions of all insurance lawa'
This is a cloak which Is being used to
cover impracticable schemes and foist
upon our cltlsens fake societies organ
ised solely for the benefit and Interest of
thoae formulating the plan. Many in
quiries are received for information in
regard to tha standing of this clasa of
companies, which tha department is un
able to furnish."
Secretary Dunbar renews his recom
mendations for the enactment of a fran
chise or gross earnings tax on quaal
publlc corporations. In this connec
tion he says :
"A study of the question has led me
to the conclusion, however, that ths
method adopted by other states requir
ing euch companies to pay a tax upon
their gross earnings, tha same as In
surance companies are now required un
der our statutes, would bs a much mora
simple and batter plan, and more read
ily under tood and easily compiled with.
"It is proper, also. In this connec
tion, that attention should be called to
the fact that companies owning and
operating dining and buffet cars and
steamboats, while engaged in currying
passengers within tha state, sell liquor
without obtaining a county or state
license. As a measure for increasing
tha state's revenue. I respectfully sug
gest that this matter be Inquired into."
Secretary Dunbar recommends many
improvements In, and the insurance of
the capltol building. Some space Is de
voted to the Initiative and referendum
and the lawa enacted thereunder, and
ha makes some recommendations for
slight modifications therein. He also
says that all money received from the
ale of state property should pass
through ths stats treasury.
The attention of the legislature Is
called to the fact that the law requires
that a census be taken in 1 905. and that
If the statute referred to is adhered to
strictly there will be much information
left out of the census that should be
gathered for the benefit of the state.
Mr. Dunbar recommends that the
secretary be relieved from duty In some
