Tho last opou mooting of the state
assessment board is being hold today
and within a few days people will
know just what tho board will do in
the most important rovouuo mattei
which ever arises in tho stato the
valuation of railway corporations.
Predictions as to tho probable ilguro
which will bo agreod upon must neces
sarily be nothing more nor loss than
wild guesses. The board has not
agreed upon tho valuation of u single
milo of track. But It has agreed to
Ilguro every mile of track upon a
certain plan, and a person ilguring
upon that same plan will llml that the
corporation propertiesaro worth some
where in the neighborhood of 47 mil
lions. Figuring upon any other basis
of assessment, they aro worth from
live to ten millions less. Tho fusion
organs havo adopted rattier a unique
wayoflaylug up future trouble for
tho board or attempting to. Just ut

temporarily ceased to twang thoir old

aro predicting that tho roads are being
assessed away up, ono notoriously
"wild'' reporters gravely assorting that,
the board will tlx tho value of all tho
linos at 57 millions or more. These
optimistic predictions of wealth pour
ing out of the coffers of the corpora
tions and into tho beloved stato trea
sury are made for tho purpose of in
duclng the voter to believe that the
time was fast coming when the rail
roads would bo askod to pay all the
taxes while tho "great common poople"
looked idly on. Then whon the pub
lic was keyed up to 57 millions aud
beliove that to bo tho proper sum,
along would come the tiding that the
board had tlxed tho valuations at
somo n'no or ton millions less. Tho
fat t is tho board has worked honestly
and steadily toward the result which
will b'o announced this weok.

I am making lots of Farm Loans.
There are reasons for this. I can close a
loan for you in three days after taking your
application, for these reasons:
You do not have to wait and pay for a
man to examine the land. My company has
oceans of money. You do not wait for them
to sell your loan in New York or London
before getting the cash.
You can Pay Off at Any Time,
without giving a day's notice of your inten
tion so to do. All other companies require
from 30 to 60 clays notice on this point.
I have so many different plans for making
loans that some one is bound to suit. No
one can give better rates.
