Recommends Change of Law.
State Treasurer Kay recommends
that tho inheritance tax laiv be amend
ed so as to make more definite and ccr
taiii tho provisions relating to allow
ances made by courts for the support of
widows of deceased persons and to dow
er and curtesy rights. Mr. Eny sug
gests that the law should specifically
state whether these should be exempt
from the inheritance tax.
Business in tho office of state trvaa
tiror, during tho eight years that Mr.
Kay has served, has increased 300 per
cent, the report shows.
Interest collected on stato funds de
posited in depository banks during the
last two years amounts to 73,937.27,
as against 47,262.18 collected during
the previous two years.
Prior to tho enactment of the state
depository law in li07, the state treas
urer used t0 personally pocket this in
terest money, which is now enough to
more than pay the entire expenses of
tho state treasurer's department.
