"Believing' that the American

The allied finance ministers met
today to consider the situation cre

the reparations commission yester
day by Roland Y. Boyden, the rep
resentative: ot the united states with
the commission, asking the payment
of the $241,000,000.
The memorandum, the text of
which was made public, .states that
the cost of the American army of
occupation up to May 1, 1921, was
about $241,000,000. It sets forth that
the allied governments, with the ex
ception perhaps of Great Britain, had
received payment for their armies of
occupation, and, that probably the
British also .were covered by a pre
ceding arrangement. Therefore, the
memorandum states, the United
States counts upon obtaining integral
payment for the cost to May 1, with
interest, before any part of the Ger
man payments are distributed tor
reparations or other objects."'

No. 110, Diikc court.
Mr. Counsman made the follow
inar atatcmpnt: "There is an exemp
tion of $200 on household goods
under the new law. Mr. lutler's
schedule as rendered came within
the schedule, so we set aside this
exemption and added $50 to his
schedule as the amount on which he
would be assessed for personal taxes,
On that basis he would pay 35
cents for state and county personal
taxes in 1921 and $1.08 for city and
school personal taxes for the same
year. He listed nothing on the
schedule except the household goods
indicated. No entries were made for
money in bank, investments in build
ing or loan association shares or any
interests in corporations or other
This further declaration was made
by the county assessor: "f have
looked over the records and I find
that this was the first personal tax
schedule returned by Mr. Butler for

sent to the council by a woman who
believed she had been taxed excess
