Collections of charter fee? ijr the Secretary of State luring 10"". will be much larger than 'ver before. With two months' bus ness yet to he recorded for tba year •he collection.s are now considerably a crcestt of last year when they cx leeded $2^.000. in l »'i5 th? total cd ertian of charter fee.s was 121.165 The big IncreaKe this year is due tr 'wo things, th? amendment made tr •Jie cbarter law by tba legrialature las: vlnter vblcli railed the cbarter fees of all corporat'ons with a capital stock of more than $tf'O.0O0. and the increased number of charters which have been granted during th? year. The great?r portion of the increase is due to enlarged bnin.r-ss as the law as amended has be.^n in effect only sitite iln- lirsi of Jny. The monthly collections of charter fees by the Secrerar.v of Siate has b.en about ^L.^^bO, but there has iiol been a month since January when the collections have fallen that low and. in one month the collections aggregated $7,000. The collections for th - year wiHiindoubt- edy be close to fifty per cent greater than they were in 1906. The collections in charter fees for the first half of tl e y?ar will, under the old law. go into the permanent school fund and the remainder of the year's collections to tiie state's general fund. This is one of the charg3S made in the charter law last winter Under tbe old law ibe permaii.">nt cbr^l fund grew .'.[.proximately $20.000 each year 1 liroiiglrcharler fee col I.^ctions but liere.-ifnn- lie- fees will go into the general fund and the stale will therefore tie able to use the fe .'S so collected in defraying current expenses and lax levies for state pin- poses may be decreased corrosiiond ii'gly.
