Latimer and other counties In the coai
districts for the collection of gross reve-
nue taxes upon Coal, pending the result
of an agreed suit in the superior court of
Pittsburg county to determine the legal-
ity of the gross revenue tax law passed
by the First, legislature. Pending final
ietermination of the case „the court has
issued a temporary injunction to re-
strain any further steps toward forcing
lyment of the tax.
Most of the coal companies engaged in

State Auditor M. E. Trapp with th.>

he coal companies claim that the gross
emit tax law is unconstitutional and
:1 for the following reasons: It does
not specify for what the tax is levied;
the l*nlted States government has sole
control of the seggregated coal lands anu
their output under contracts made with
the operators as lessees; that the tax
confiscatory; that It is a gross discrimi-
nation in that it levies a tax of only one-
half of one per cent on oil and gas pro-
duction and levies 2 per cent on coal
wblel direct competlUgn with oil
and gas as a fuel.
The defendants - ontend that the law
does specify the purpose for which the
tax was levied and that If thofe is *ny
deficiency it is corrected by the act of
the Second legislature amending the gross
revenue law; that the tax is levied upon
the basis of mining coal and not upon
the government lands; ti it It l« no ob-
jection to taxation; that is confiscatory
In that the power of taxation Is the
pow* ? of confiscation; that there is no
discrimination, as the legislature has the
right to 1 !asslf$ subjects of taxation and
that to place oil and gas in one classi-
fication and coal in another is not an
