DES MOINES, Aug. 2.-(Speclal Tele
gramsWhen the state officials had
finished making assessment of all prop
erty In the state today It was found the
state tax levy could be reduced by half
a mill and be made 2 9-10 mills on the
dollar,-' the lowest for many years. It
was accordingly made at that rate. The
net tncreaao in taxable values of all
property was about $26,000,000.
Lnml VnlticM liicr'iiar.
The council ordered nn Increase In land
values which amounts for the state to
about 33 per cent Starting with the re
ports showing sale values of land these
were scaled 20 per cent to get at the
actual or commercial value. Then, as
the legislature, tn the moneys and credits
law, has recognized the propriety of an
SO per cent valuation this was further
scaled to obtain equality with moneys
and credits. A few counties were In
creased but slightly, others to a great
extent; so that land values al over the
state will be about on a par with other
Town lot valuations were adjusted by
raises and decreases, and the net raise Is
about 10 per cent The council found a
very great difference in the valuation on
The council ordered an Increase In per
sona property, chiefly live stock, the in
crease amounting to an average of about
10 per cent
There were slight increases ordered in
tho assessments on sleeping car com
panies, equipment companies, express,
telegraph and telephone business. On the
Iowa telephone plant there was an In
crease of 33V4 per cenj.
II- llr-- ' - loo"!
Railroad valuations wer. sent skyward
more than had been done In a dozen
years before, an Increase of 10,000,000 in
tho taxablo value being made, which
means over $40,000,000 In actual values.
Tho increase on some of tho systems
wast Northwestern, $3,63S,000; Milwaukee,
$1,845,000; Great Western, $1,415,000; Rock
Island, $1,200,000; Burlington, $1,065,000;
Illinois Central, $1,003,000; Omaha, $140,
000; Atchison, $100,000.
The value iot railroad property was ar
rived at by considering tho average
gross earnings for five years, then de
ducting 68 per cent for expenses and
capltallrlng same at 7 per cent after
taking out tho taxes.
The manner of distributing tho rail
road values for taxation purposes will
effect a revolution. It means that each
and every system will be treated as a
whole and not as a series of small roads
Joined together for convenience.
More Worlc for AutlltorM.
The changes made will mean a great
deal of hard work for the county audi
tors In making the changes ordered on
every class of property. So far as pos
slblo the percentage of Increase has been
made without fractional numbers and
this will avoid some trouble. Members
of the council believe they have made a
fair adjustment of values for taxation
purposes In accord with the Intent of
tho lcgtslaturo and that It Is by far the
nearest approach to tho aasestment at
actual values ever attempted. As the
whole property of the state subject to
taxation has been lncroased as to value
for that purpose the state tax levy will
be correspondingly reduced, and the
council will request of local taxing
bodies that they also make reduction in
local levies to the same extent This
will leave mutters substantially as they
are as to the amoun of taxes secured.
Members of the council have worked
hard for three weeks on this assessment
and taxation proposition.
