PROPERTY VMS INCREASE
Advance of Quarter Million Shown
in Douglas County.
EQUALIZATION BOARD MEETS
Organises and Will Begin Hearings
Wednesday Morning Little In
crease Shown In Personal
Value of Douglas county real estate in
creased $26,421,690 in the year ending June
1, 1912, according to figures submitted to
the county board of equalization bv
County Assessor W. G. Shriver. Omaha's
realty value increase for the year is
nearly $21,000,000, and that of the country
precincts $5,000,000, while South Omaha's
increase is slightly over $500,000. Com
parative figures follow:
Omaha $ 95,003.155 $115,761,690
South Omaha 14,819,995 l5,S3ti.uo
County 18,123,825 23,270,775
Totals $127,946,975 $154,3fiS.ti5
Increase $ 26,421,690
May Increase Schedules.
Little if any increase In personal prop
erty valuations will be shown by As
sessor Shrlver's report, which will be
given the board within a day or two.
Last year's total personalty was $36,
374,755. In the oplniop of Mr. Shriver there
has been a general disposition among
property owners to undervalue their per
sonal property In listing it to the deputy
assessors. Despite the schedules given,
the assessor believes the personality
values have increased greatly and he will
suggest to the Board of Equalization
that many of the schedules be increased
Valuations of realty In Union, Valley
and Millard precincts are slightly lower
than four years ago, when ther last realty
valuations were made, while the valuer
in other country precincts have Increased
an average of 25 per cent. The Increase
in Douglas precinct is 60 per cent. This
unusual increase is due in part to genuine
Increase and In part to a desire of the
property owners to boost values tn order
that the tax levy for school purposes may
be sufficient to maintain schools. Much
of the property In this precinct has been
valued at $500 an acre and many of the
owners begged the assessor to let them
value their ground at $1,000 an acre. This
the assessor refused to do, as he could not
permit such valuation without forcing
all other owners to value their property
on the same excessive basis.
The Equalization Board, composed of
the county commissioners, the assessor
and County Clerk Frank Dewey, have
organized and elected County Commis
sioner Frank C. Best chairman.
After passing on several minor cases
the board adjourned until this
morning at 10 o'clock. The board will
be In session dally until all equalization
matters have been disposed of.
