Kdil or Ladd or the Albion News, one
of the prominent rural republican pa

Railroad Assessment $46,000,000.
The railroad assessment in the slate
has at last been accomplished by plac
inn It at lii,noi,inio. Last year it was
7,niHi,oun, in round numbers, so the
increase is a hunt seventy per cent.
I'd eeueral opinion seemed to prevail
that the raise would easily run up to
about $i;ii,imio,ikhi, which would have a
little more than doubled the assess
ment, and would thus he an equal in
crease with other property. Those
who are familiar with the situation
think that the lailroad taxes this year
will he less than last. While the as
sessment has been increased, the levy
will be so much lower as to lower the
taxes. If this is true, who i.s eolne to
pay the increased taxes which the state
requires to meet expenses and indebt
edness? Now and Then.
