VALUE OF GOLD IS
$26. AN OUNCE  .
An astonishing feature ot the taxation problems that have confronted
the political economists of the world
���ince the late war ended is that gold
is actually worth about one-third more
than its mini value, according lo the
Tonopah Miner.
Tim theory is borne out by a study
of tin- legislation enacted by the principal gold-producing countries. In
every country in the world where gold
la produced, laws have lippn made exempting the gold miner from the pay-
menl of excess profit taxes, corporation taxes and governmental restrictions.
This gives the gold miner an advantage, claimed to. lie around :S0 per
cent, over the average price of commodities, as against tlie producer of
silver and other metals, the grower
of wheat, rye. corn and cotton, or the
raiser of livestock.
Colonel   Carl   Young   and   Holla   I!.
Clapp,  who are  interested  in the Sil-
verpah   and   Klclcapah   properties,  located on  Lone mountain, are the progenitors of the idea regarding the enhanced   value   of  gold,   and   they  say
thai   since   a   national   law,   recently
passed, has put gold on the free list,
without paying income or excess profits taxes, its comparative value is 30
per cent, greater than any other commodity produced in the United States.
The fact that it  is the only  metal
on the tax free list, and the paramount
recognition  given   it   by  congress.  Is
sufficient impetus to renew operations
In the    sold    camps of the    country.
Hold may be found in many camps in
Nevada;   and   with   the   lowering   or
operating    costs   and the    exemption
rom  taxes that gold  mining companies    now    enjoy,  there    should    be a
gradual rise in ihe number of ounces
produced in the United  States.
An example may be taken from the
last report of President Frank Keith
1'1 the United Eastern gold mines, of
Arizona. During the years 1917 and
1P1S production wins practically the
same, bul dividends in l��is with tax-
free gold were nearly $400,000 greater
than 1'.117. 0 ralmost double Hie am-
ount paid In that year. In other words,
federal war taxes In 1917 required al*
mosl one hall 01 the profits, whereas
1918 1 lie Bame amount was avail*
' 1  dividends.
Ileal  fact has prompted Colonel  Voting and his associates In the
