Bti.l : : AVheiLsenatoHle Xo. 'Jlvsn before
the sail ute this niornliifr on tlio report of the
committee on municipalities to indeliiiitoly
postpone tlio consideration of Iho bill , which
provides for one assessor for Oiniihn , Senator
S\viulermiidean iiiyuuiont in favor of the
bill , The senator said , ainoni ! other thinjfs ,
that the ward assessor system in the city
% vns open to great iiliu-to , for the reason Unit
soiao of the u assessors tinido outraccous dls-
civniincles in Iho valuation of the property of
their friends for assessment purposes.
This v/ns true in several wards in tlio city ,
but it was not necessarily true as to all of
them. The senator then showed that the ob
ject of the bill was to not a iuori. < uniform sy--
tcui of assessment la the city for citv pur-
po'icu ' mid to do awajif possible , with
tbo iircsent o'ltrawons iwrtiality hlmxyii by
some ward assessors. In support of his posi
tion in tlu < matter ho road troni an editorlul
inTiiK MOIIMVU BKK entitled "Tho Assess-
nicnt I''arce ' , " in which WHS statcit
tbo following quotation ; "Tho vital oDjoi--
tion to the pivscnt method of iisscssniunl is
tlwt electors pav little or no attention to this
qualifications of candidates for assessor , and
tbo result is that a most important public
duty , reiruirint ; thoroiiKhknowlodnoot value ,
descends to the level of a farce. Unity of ac
tion Is not possible , for tlio reason that friend
ship and favoritism and spite are prominent
factors in the assessment returned. "
The senator thought that the proper course
in tbo promises was that the bill should be
placed on general lllo. In order that it may
have tbo fair consideration of the senate , and
that the Rcntleumn from Xuckolls , who
might uiulcn > taii ( ? many matters of legisla
tion iti'vhichhls constituents were directly
interested , should Inivo little control or influ
ence in mutters which relate to the business
of those citizens of the state , with which he
lias little concern.
