The population of Independence is 10,069, according to Arthur H. Palmer. This is 210 more than the government census returns, and 69 more than enough to leave the tax rate undisturbed. For all practical purposes the results of the special census will be used as the basis of the city’s operations. If the city has less than 10,000 people the constitution limits the tax levy to 50 cents on each $100, over 10,000 people permits a $60 cent levy.
