Auditor's Report Shows Cit- ies Get Back 24 P. C. of State Taxes and Counties Get Back 127 P. C. With a determined fight .to be waged before the General Assembly looking for an equalization of tax rural districts, interesting have been compiled from the report of the auditor of public accounts by the organization of Virginia citiea which merged their interests in the effort to secure redress from what is considered unjust distribution of tax money. The one hundred counties of Vir- ginia during the past year drew out of the treasury the sum of 290.46 in excess of what they paid into it, the counties, In other words, getting back 127 per cent of their state taxes. Eighty-three counties drew out more than what they paid in, while seventeen counties paid in more than they eventually drew out. Among the seventeen counties on this "honor roll" is Pittsylvania county, which put into the treasury more than what it drew out. A further analysis of the figures shows that the 23 Virginia cities paid into the treasury the sum of 651.52. and they drew out 382.05. the amount paid in, in excess of the amount withdrawn, being 005.259 47. These figures resolved show- that the cities of Virginia get back 24 per cent of their state taxes. These figure sare prepared for the benefit of those cities which recently formed a combination for the pur-v pose of seeking a readjustment of ths distribution of tax money Danville is amone ths Virginia cities interested in tJ-.is effort Only One Arrest Made Yesterday The pf lif blotter at the courthouse inornang thow-d that only or.e arres: w.ia niadc during yesterday and ami Jast night, and fo-- dookot >n v. as disposed of ord'-r niorn- jrjc Will Motley. fiin-d arid for Kivini: an entrrtain- charRin and failinc 10 TirDVid" 3promotion Jll Tor Greek Patriarch Taken From Office Submarine Said ,Head of Church Is Found To Be Booze Guilty of Traitorous Con- MAT.
