July 25, is revealed in the records of

decrease will be more in evidence
after januarv 1, when licenses are

since the reduced rate schedule came
into force the total income from mat
source has declined $42,242. or io.

this is due to the fact that the great

But when motor
vehicle owner's pay their 19 30 fees
to county treasurers, tney win con
tribute a great deal less than before.
Even after allowing for the usual
increase per year in number of regis
trations it is altogether likely that
the fees for 1930 will fall a million
dollars below those for the present
Should this expectation be realized
the state will be deprived of $30,000
for maintenance of its highways
while the various counties will lose
$700,000, taken altogether. The law
