Senate Reduces Mileage Fee. The senate last Thursday passed the bill providing a maximum of seven cents per mile for use of privately owned automobiles by county officals, excepting the sheriff and his deputies who are allowed the present rate of ten cents per mile, due to the fact that In pursuit of their official duties they are often required to travel at night and over all kinds of roads. An effort as made to fix the seven cent rate for the sheriff also, but an amendment by Senator Doran of Boone made the exception. It Is estimated tne reduction from the present ten cents per mile rate will mean a saving of between $400,000 and $500,000 In the whole state. Reduce Proposed Pipe Line Tax. An amendment has been filed In the house to reduce the proposed I5c per 1000 tax on natural gas, brought Into toe state by pipe lines, to So per 1000. pipe line people are putting up a fight against any tax, claiming It merely a t. sales tax - and tnat r,™. 1 pay _ a heavy tax on their physical property In toe state.

Representative Durant, of Hancock ounty, has had a bill placed on the house calendar proposing & tax otf $7 on police dogs, It being claimed that the increase in number of these animals is responsible for toe heavy loss of sheep killed by dogs that has put the domestic animal fund in toe reel in most counties.
