Why Fairmount People are Dissatis-With Their Taxes It has been complained at Marion that Fairmount people make more kicks on their taxes and assessments than any other part of Giant county. Of coure, if this is true, their ought to be some good reason or reasons for it. As to the kicks, we do not know, but we think the people of Fairmount do have reasons for complaint, and plenty of them. So we feel like saying something in their defense. It is well known tha people in Fairmount are taxed on much miore than the cash value of thei? property. But to be more specific, we will give a few cases In point; T. J. Pierce in 1920 paid cash for house and lot, f 500; he is now assessed $1,370.00, on which he pays taxes. C C Brown paid cash $600; assessed, $1,1T0.00. Fred Bonner paid cash $1,675.00; assessed, $2,600.00. These to Introduce the matter; we can give many more such. These are not isolated cases. A TAXPAYER.
