TAXES FOR STATE PURPOSES
Board "Will If ai at Lincoln Hext Monday
to Tix the Bate,
DOUGLAS COUNTY WILL BE BEPRESENTED
EaTert WUI Be Made te Bare) Rate
Flaed far TnU Cowaty tbat
W ill Be Ban I table with
The Board of Equalisation meet at Lin
coln Monday to fix tha levy for state pur
poses In tha various oountlaa of Nebraska,
and It Is expected that tha general levy
will be considerably higher this year than
last, as tha last legislature Increased tha
maximum amount which may be levied for
state purposes from TVs mills to H mills.
The meeting of the board la of consid
erable Interest to the various counties of
tha state for the reason that assessments
which are too high compared with assess
ments of like property In other counties
are her equalised for atata purposes by
varying tha levy. Last year the levy
varied from 4 mi 11a in tha case of Douglas
county to 7H mills in several counties
where, In the opinion of tha board, the
assessors had placed a very low valuation
upon tha property. Tha year previous
Douglaa county had paid tha limit for state
purposes and there waa no objection, for
tha reason that there had been little or no
attempt to secure an assessment In this
county for county purposes higher than
tha prevailing aaseaament in tha state.
Last year, however, tha assessment was
greatly Increased and tha county commls
si oners, at tha request of the Real Estate
exchange, sent a representative to Lin
coin, who by making a showing of the
facts had mills stricken from the Douglas
county levy for last year. This saved to
tha county, upon tha basis of last year's
assessment, about 176,000 and placed tha
property of Douglas county upon a much
' mora muI table baaia for state taxation
than It had been before for many years.
Doaglas Coanty Assessment.
This year a Ilka representation will be
made and it will be possible, in the opinion
of many of tha persons Interested In the
matter, to show that on an average the
assessed valuation of property In Douglas
county will approximate nearer 25 per cent
of Its true value than any lower propor
tlon. This high average la made up almost.
If not Quite, from the assessment of real
estate, although there are a number of
owners of personal property who firmly
believe , they have been assessed for at
least one-fourth of all tha property
,they own In tha county. The high
est average real estate assessment
comes from the Eighth ward, and
the Jowest, probably, from the
Ninth ward, although there are some com
paratively high assessments In the Third
ward, notably the First National bank
building, which is assessed at J62.000 for
county purposes, while assessed for city
purposes, on full valuation, at $230,000, or
a little more than four .times as much
for the latter as for the former; the Omaha
National bank building, which Is assessed
for exactly five times as much for city as
for county purposes, and the United States
National bank building, assessed for county
purposes at 133,000, against $130,000 for city
purposes, this being more than 26 per cent
of the real value aa found by the city
tax commissioner. Still! greater variations
are found in the outlying additions to the
city, where the county assessment fre
quently approximates 75 per cent of the
city assessment, and the city assessment
Is confessedly higher than the price for
which tha property could be sold at the
Lawyer Will Wake Ikowtag,
J. P. Braen, who will represent the
county, has written to the secretary of the
board, to ascertain what time the board
will consider the Douglas county assess
ment, anl will go to Lincoln to make the
required showing. In the light of the In
crease in the maximum rate of taxation
for state purposes It Is not believed that
the state levy will be any lower than It
waa last year, while there are fears that
It will be higher, not only in Douglas
county, but throughout the state, and the
(Torts of tha attorney probably will be
devoted, to maintaining an equitable ratio
between the rate for Douglas county and
that for the other countlea In the state,
regardless of the rate of last year. The
average, rate last year for all of the coun
tlea In the atate was approximately 6V4
mills, while for Douglas county It was 4Vs

ELEVENTH STREET VIADUCT
Railroads Igaore notices to Repair
and City Pats t
Rough and not particularly handsome
fences now adorn the north and south ends
of the Eleventh street viaduct, and at night
they are decorated with red lights In the
form of lanterns with the globes swathed In
a fair quality of carmlne-hued flannel.
Notices sent to the Union Pacific and
Burlington railroads to repair the vladuot
have not been heeded, and as the flooring
in a number of places has become so worn
and rotten as to be dangerous Engineer
Rosewatar ordered it cloead.
Residents of the south side sjid others
who use the viaduct are now expected to
give vent to their wrongs, and the matter
will probably come before the city council.
Under the law, as Anally decided by the
United States courts, the railroad com
panies must maintain this and other via-duots.

PERMANENT WALKS ARE LAID
Ka CJty Contractor This Year and
Property Owners Act
More permits for permanent sidewalks
are being issued by the Board of Public
Works than during any July for a number
of years. Features of the work are that
many . property owners are voluntarily,
and on their own motion, laying walks,
and the increasing proportion of brick
being uaed In the construction of them.
One explanation of tha present rush is
that until a short time ago sidewalk as
well as building material was tied up on
account of the labor troubles. Owing to
the city being without an official paper
there is no permanent aldewalk contractor
for 1903 up to the present time. As soon
aa the advertising can be dona, and the
contract is awarded, there will be consid
erable work tor the contractor, and the
year in this Una will compare favorably
with any of its predecessors.
