DR. E ARTHUR CARR MADE
HEAD OF BOARD SECRETARIES
(From' a Start Correspondent) '
LINCOLN, Neb., July 3. (Special.)
Under the new law passed by the last
legislature under the head pf Senate File
ro. 3Z3, prepared by the revenue com
mute and. .Introduced by Senator Sprk,
the board of assessment will take a new
method to arrive at the assessment.
TKe new method of assessing taxes
against private car companies , provides
that the state board ot assessment shall
assess such companies tipon, the basis
of the average rate pf general taxes,
Including state, county, municipal, school
district and local levies In all the counr
ties of the state for the preceding year
and that, the tax. so' levied shall be paid
tp the state treasurer for the state
geenral, fund. It 1 repeals the old law
which prorated the assessment of- these
companies among the counties traversed
by railroad lines " over- which the cars
.traveled. , , , , . .
According to the assessment of 1912
thb value of all state property was
.60,190,151. The , total- taxes charged
against. this levy was 17,ffa,i57.6S. This
would make the rate 36.05 per cent
The assessed' valuation of private cat-
companies n vs was ana ipe
revenue-derived would be S9.312.3S.
There are abput J w different private
car lines Tunning' In and' through the
state, which come 1 under' the . provisions
ot the law. ' .

The provision of the constitution which;
seems to stand In the way of the aspira

age of thirty' years and been for two
years" next preceding his election a cltt
zeh df the United States and ot this
state. None of the officers of the cxecu
tlVe department shall tie eligible to any
other stat office during the period for
which they shall have ben elected."
This would seem, to stand In the way
of any state officer now holding .from
becoming a' candidate' for thb office ot
governor. It Is 'true that Governor .More
