But much more is in reality received, and the amount collected is estimated
at from 100,000 to 120,000 Tumans.
In 1904 Mushir-ed-Divan is said to have paid the Governor of Kurdistan
30,000 Tumans for the post of Yazir for one year, an outlay made, no doubt, with
a view to a subsequent profit.
General Schindler in 1902 in the supplement to the “ Encyclopaedia Britannica”,
says:—
‘ c Jn proportion to its size and population it pays a very small yearly revenue,
only about £14,000, due to the fact that a great part of the population consists
of wild and disorderly nomad Kurds. Some of these nomads pass their winter in
Turkish territory, and have their summer pasture grounds in the highlands ot
Kurdistan. This adds much to the difficulty of collecting taxation.
