The state of Colorado will have money to burn for the next two years. Auditor Crouter won out in his demand for a 4 mill levy for 1901 and the state board of equalization fixed it at that fig- ure. It is explained that the reason it was fixed at 4 mills was the fact that the le- gal time for fixing the levy had passed and that, therefore, the old levy would stand. Auditor Crouter would have refused to send out any lower levy and the coun- ties would have proceeded to collect the taxes under the 4.mill levy. Some slight changes were made in the levy which is divided as follows: Mills. General revenue and interest on bonds ......... : ............... 2 Agricultural college .............. 1-5 Mute and Blind ................. 1-5 School of Mines ................. 1-5 Normal school ................... 1-5 State university ................. 1-5 Insane asylum ................... 1 5 Stock inspection ................. 1-30 State capitol ..................... 1 2 Capitol bond sinking fund ........ 4-15 There is also a levy of 1-10 mill for in- terest on insurrection bonds allowed by I the constitution in addition to the4 mill levy. The estimated revenue to the state un- der this levy if all the taxes are collected m about $1,300,000. Of this the corpora- lions will pay $500,000 and fees in the various offices will make up another $100,000 or more. If the railroads fight the tax levied against them, which they are expected to do, the revenues will be reduced just the amount due the state from them. This.will leave the balance of the taxpayers to keep the machinery of the state going. If the corporations can be forced to pay the taxes assessedi against them there will be a surplus of' about $500,000 each year with which to take up the outstanding indebtedness of the state if the legislature does not spend it in some other manner.--Times. a pnRI[ GRAPE CREAM C.
