You will observe that from year to
year tho valuation increases whilo our
lovy decreases, not the result of our
presont system of legislation, but from
natural facts and causos. Also note our
township taxes undor tho presont system.
While it may be truo our county tax as
a wholo is loss, wearo howovor burdened
by a highor township tax. Honco by
taking tho two togethor you will por
coive that it costs tho poor farinor on an
average of f 5,041 per year for the privi
lege of living under this glorious system.
Gentlemon, bo conservative. Carefully
compare the abovo statements and thon
ask yourself which costs the most dol
lars and if the city pcoplo want to save
tho poor farmor. Also boar in mind it
cost tho poor farmer $51 por day or 204
whereas 15 per day or 860 would havo
answered in our last session of equaliza
tion. Tho averago lovy for county gen
eral fund purposes during the commis
