Property was assessed under a new ruling which used market values of farm and city property whereas before only one-fourth of market values was used. The levy for 1912 was 17.1, and in 19!1<3 was 16.1, which though reduction was not enough (to balance the assessment rise. • • * • A. trial took place before the ward of supervisors to select offi- ial newspapers.

In the 45th General Assembly ome 50 tax reduction measures •ere enacted into laws. Since thai time many attempts have been made to amend or repeal them. I admit that it is perfectly possible for some of these well intended measures to increase rather than reduce public expenses. No one can tell just what laws will do until they have been tried, but I believe they are entitled to a trial before we start to amend or repeal them. House Irked by Senate.
