County Assessors and
at Lincoln to Talk
Problem Before
Clerks Meet
Over the
Fmi Pnti: rUay's Daily.
County Clerk George H. Sayies and
County Assessor William Rummell
were in Lincoln yesterday to attend
the meeting of the assessors and
clerks of the various counties of the
state called to meet with Tax Com
missioner W. IF Oshorn and to dis-
af-Jcuss the new law that requires the
t fie , re-assessment of the lands of the
Heretofore it has been the law to
assess the land everv four vears, but
the law passed a week ago makes it
necessary to re-assess the land this
year in spue of the tact that it was
assessed last spring on the four-vear
schedule, and every two years here
after. The land of the state has in
the past few months showed changes
valuation and the members of the
legislature have seen fit to enact the
new law to have the land re-assessed
this spring.
This work will commence on April
1st and will be a difficult task for
the assessors of the state as they
have not been able to prepare for it
and the work must of necessity be
gotten under way promptly.
The meeting decided that it would
he possible for the counties to use
their same books for the new valua
tion and thus save each countv quite
i neat sum. It was also decided the
law would be strictly followed in the
taking of actual land valuations
from which assessment values are de
termined, and this will be carried
out by the county and precinct as
sessors in making their returns.

Some night we fear a terrible ac
cident is going to occur at the east
bridge across the Weeping Water
here in town. At the north approach
to this bridge on the west side, the
road runs within a few inches of the
embankment that slopes a few feet,
then drops abruptly to the creek be
low. A protecting fence should be
built there and painted white. Then
some good lights should be installed
on the bridge. The city council was
petitioned some months ago by south
side residents to install a light on
this bridge, but they have not yet
been installed. Folks who have to
walk along on the sloping stretch of
cement walk with its delapidated
railing need this light on the bridge,
and people who drive cars across the
bridge need the light. It ought to
be installed. Referring again to
fences along dangerous approaches
to bridges, it would be a reasonable
safeguard to have some put in on
the west at both bridges across the
creek here at both north and south
