Tlie annual a'es-ment oi the cou.-.ty
will show ar increase over ast year,
whic-.U viIJ demonstrate the value ot rail
road.s even to their most determined
enemies. V"e are toll that the vole of
the A xscs.ors.at their meeting thi week,
plain the valuation of land in this pre
cinct at loo per cent over the valuation
last year. We did not learn '.he estimate 1
value of the southern precin'.fs, but
pose they w'll lJ advanced proportional
ly, not so high as here, hut that they
will all be advanced from '2o to 0 per
cent. Add to this the incrca-e of settle
ments, the in flux ofcapi'al, and the val
ue of improvements!, and wo think the
valuation of the entire county will come
pretty closely t- $-LX).0h. We hope
the Assessor will bear in mind the circu
lar lately i.vmed by the Slate Auditor, and
their own oaths. The real value tdiould
be ascertained by all moans.

THE IN't'O.IIK TAX KO;i 1B.
Under the laws .-f the I'nited State? it
is the duty of (irty j-rr.ion on or before
the first day of March in each ye.ir, to
make a return of his income, gains and

District wherein he reside. As all of j
the Assessor's Districts in Nebraska
c-omprise everal counties, it is as a mat
ter of course impossible for them to trav

We have a law on our statutes which
empowers and rr-jiiire the Commis
pioners of every county in the State to
cithc the precinct assessors of their re
spective counties to make a careful enu
meration, but for some reason or other
without reason, our commissioners, act
ing under the advice of certain parties
hsive refused to obey the law in this
county. There is no choice f r them in
this matter.- They must obey the law.
If the Commissioners set the example
to their fellow citizens of defying the law
they 5ict unlawfully an .1 should be held
to a strict accountability.
We have not the time to-d y to dis
cuss the question to its legitimate re
sults, but wc hold that neither the Com
missioners nor any of the county officers
should set so flagrant an exatnp'o of dis
obedience to law r.s they have in this in
stance. At no time in the history of
this State would the enumeration of its
inhabitants prove of such incalculable.
advantage as this very spring. With
but little additional labor the assessors
could have furnished nn exact return of
all our inhabitants, but without cau-e '
and without reason Cas County has been
made a stumbling block to a correct enu
meration. Wo call the attention of he
people of Cae.s to this uir.variantabie as
sumption, on tlie part of our . ounty au
thorities, to the end that if they have
any reason, it may be bsvuht forth,
and that they show cause why I hoy re
fuse to obey the law in this in-fanee.
All the blanks for the ei.uutciation are
in their possession, why have they not
caused the assessor to cany out the law ?
