C. M. DANUSER, et al., Members of the State Tax Commission, L. D. Thompson, State Auditor, and Eugene Stephens, State Treasurer, Respondents.
No. 28608.
Supreme Court of Missouri, in Banc.
April 9, 1928.
Rehearing Denied May 18, 1928.

E. T. Miller and A. P. Stewart, both of St. Louis, for relator.

North T. Gentry, Atty. Gen., and Walter E. Sloat, Sp. Asst. Atty. Gen., for respondents.

WALKER, C. J.


This is likewise an application for a writ of certiorari to quash the records of the respondents required to be entered in the discharge of their official duties in the enforcement of the Corporation Franchise Tax Law of 1921 (Laws 1921, 1st Ex. Sess., p. 121-126).

Like contentions are made herein as in Nos. 28394 (6 S.W.(2d) 907) and 28607 (6 S.W.(2d) 912), in which we held the franchise tax law to be valid and quashed the writs of the relators therein. A like course is authorized in this case, and it is so ordered.

All concur, RAGLAND, J., in the result, except WHITE and GRAVES, JJ., not sitting.
