Muskogee, 1. T„ March 28.—With
the passage of the Curtis bill comes a
struggle between the towns ot Indian
Territory 2nd tne railroads over the
matter of taxation. Under present
laws there is no way to assess and
collect taxes from railroads. There
are twelve roads operating In the ter-
ritory and out of that number there is
just one that is paying taxes and that
one is the Frisco. This is a voluntary
payment and is made by the road as a
matter cf policy.
The Curtis bill provides that the
city council of a town may levy and
collect taxes from railroads within its

New York, March 28.—Geo.
Perkins, formerly vice president of
the New York Life Insurance com-
pany, was today arrested on a warrant
charging grand larceny in the first de-
gree. The warrant was issued by
Magistrate Joseph Moss. Beforo he
was arraigned, his counsel applied to
Justice Greenbaum in the supreme
court for writ of habeas corpus direct-
ing production of Perkins before
Greenbaum. The writ was granted.
In his petition, Perkins declared that
his imprisonment and restraint are il-
legal, that the warrant is void in that
no evidence of any crime or act justi-
fying Irre t had been submitted to
Moss, and that the magistrate was
without jurisdiction.
Perking was formerly lc-ated at

Minneapolis, Minn., March 2S.—Six
Italian or Greek laborers were slashed
to death In a light with six of their
countrymen early today in a shanty on
South Tenth avenue. Tin bodies w. 10
found today, mutilated with systematic
thoroughness which, together with tlie
fact that there was no robbery, points
to revenge as the motive. The shanty
was rented recently to nine Italians or
Greeks. It is believed that they consti-
tuted a black hand organization and
rented the Plaee for the purpose of kill-
ing their fellow men, who evidently had
been marked. The murderers disappear-
ed b.-fore daylight. The murderers evi-
dently, after attacking their victims,
let them bleed to death, for the wounds
were not deep but rather In long ^s-
tuntitle slashes running lengthwise along

roads to pay taxes, notably Muskogee
and the M., K. & T. railroad, but in
every case the railroad won out, the
city not having the requisite power to
enforce ihe collection of the tax.
The Frisco railroad commenced pay-
ing taxes at Vinita a-s soon as that
town was incorporated. It has been
paying ever since. It has also paid
taxes in every other town, in the terri-
tory where an assessment ha-s beon
made against it and the tax duplicate
presented. In Muskogee the Frisco
pays no tax because an attempt has
been made to force the other roads to
pay it and it has failed. The tax col-
lector has not the nerve to ask the
Frisco to pay under such circum
stances. The fact that the railroad:
have refused to pay taxes is not likely j
to make for a light assessment when
the tax assessor does get at them.
A prominent official of the Frisco
was asked today if his road consider-
ed that tho voluntary payment of taxes
had been profitable. "Well, I should
, | -ay so. It has been the best tiling

just that much and every town that
lias prospered has made the railroad
prosper. Why shouldn't a railroad
' pay its taxes just the same as an in-
I dividual?"
The question of taxation and valu-
ation is one that is of great interest
in Indian Territory just now, and one
f the big items, of course, is the tax-
ation of railroads. Under tho Curtis
aet the towns will endeavor to levy
and collect taxes immediately. If state-
