Or. may he by reiteraUng his allegl.imo to the Klag, or Queen, or Czar, or Sultan, or Pasha or whatever it be, escape payment of the levies ihr.t are made In the various localities in Aniorica to maintain the governfnent? r This novel question is before Judge D. B. D. Smeltzer, in the city court, for a ruling. From this distance, it appears to be a question that is on its way to the higher courts before • it is finally settled. In the oase that has brought out the question, thu defendant asserts that under no condition, will he pay the load la.\. The city counselor, on the otiier hand, emphatically states that the doteuUant must pay or abide IJV the penaiiv prescribed by the law.

"What shall I do with them?"' he , inquired of the city commission, "they're not paying and. from all appearances, do not intend to do so." "Prosecute them." responded the commissioners, "if they have failed to iieed a reasonable warning." The names on Clerk Zieglers {ist are those of men who were told a month ago. or more, that they must on (i certain date, appear at the office of the street coniniisslonor anri work out the road tax or. imy it In (•::R1I to the city clerk.

"Im a subject of King C.< orge." aald Mr. Tinsdale. "and therefore Cm not liable for this tax. 1 will not pay it." Arraigned before Judge Snielt/er. , Mr. Tinsdale made the* same statement "Well, but are you guilty or not guilty?" persisted the .ludgo. "I stated my ease to you. That's all there is to it." 'Tery well. Ill enter.a plea of not guilty for you and set the trial for Wednesday morninc at 10 oclnek. That will give you time to arrange for an attorney and prepare your defense." "Defense?

He will appear in court when called, he notified the court, but whatever proceeding is taken, will be the initiative of the court. "fm not just certain what the law- is." .Jadge Smeltzer said this afternoon," admittedly puzzled—over '.he case. "But, if 1 find no interfering statute. 1 will have to do my duty and Bend Mr. "nnsdale to jail if he refuses to par. If he v.ill unt pay. I'll be obliged to issue a cotiimltment —there's no other way to look at it." -As far as could be learned this afternoon, this is the first time in this seotfon of the country at least, that a l^realdent not a citizen, has ever qutttioned payment of the road tax and speculation around the city building and the streets WBS rife.
