IOWA FARM VALUES RAISED
Bi; Increase in Assessments Blamed
SUIT IS FILED BY LEAGUE
It Shows) to Court that lianda and
Itailronda Had Been Aanessed
Mnph Lower Than Prop-
DE8 MOINES, la., August S.-8peclal.)
The responsibility, to a very large ex
tent, for-the enormous Increase In farm
land values for taxation purposes this
year must rest with the Iowa league of
municipalities and the secretary of the
state executive council. Tho leaguo of
municipalities brought the suit last year
to .have the district court declare that
assessments were too low and tho result
was an order to have the assessments
raised to actual market value. While
this was directed at all property. It was
necessarily most easily followed In re
gard to farm lands. The league also
employed others to assist In making a
showing as to railroad, and land valua
tions and showed that aa compared with
Jtown property they ware both under
Secretary Davison of the state executive
council also, did a great deal of work
making a showing In regard to farm
land values. He compiled a vast amount
of information In regard to the value of
land in the market and how this value
compared with actual assessments. Ho
gave assistance to the league of mu
nicipalities In making the general show
ing. The taxable value of property In the
state Is not yet up to full value, but the
state officials believe that It Is so nearly
to that value that no fault can be found
and It Is at least as high as the 80 per
cent assessment on moneys and credits.
The result will be a great decrease In tax
levies all over the state. It will be of
help, however. In many ways to have the
assessed values higher so that there will
be greater liberty In financial transac
tions. Will Give More for Colleaeo.
One unexpected result of the suit of
the league of municipalities and the con
sequent raise In property valuations, will
be to give the state educational Institu
tions more money for operations. The
Increase in tho valuation will be about
the same as an Increase of a half mill
in the tax levy. The building funds of
the colleges and the support fund of the
college at Ames are oh fixed, levies so
that they will not be reduced. This will
be an enormous addition to the annual
.income of. these Institutions.
This increase, however, will not be
available for some time and for the pres
ent tho colleges will continue with- the
old appropriations. The college tax
.levies are for five years.
Railroads Probably- Will Com pin lit.
The state officials anticipate that the
railroad, companies will mako a big com
menl'ot the railroads li now &noutf on
an equality- with that of other -property.
For a number of years the value placed
'on Iowa railroads naa been neia aown
because of the tendency of the local as
sessors to undervalue all property, There
was evidence before the council that the
actual commercial value of the Iowa
railroads was about 8380,000,000. The value
placed by the.councll on these railroads
Is even greater than this, and then the
sura was scaled down to the 80 per cent
bala?of the moneys and credits law.
State Fair note Case.
State officials were really not very
greatly surprised over the decision- ot the
three federal Judges In tho state fair rate
casei It was recognised by the legislature
Itself that the question was a doubtful
one and that the courts might declare
the law void. But state officials put up
; a good fight to sustain the law and will
carry It higher in tho hope of having the
law; sustained finally. For a good many
years the railroads Bad made a reduced
rate to the falf,vbut they withdrew It a
few years ago and compelled a higher
rate.- If the farmers had not become ac
customed to the reduction they probably
would liavo thought llttlo of It, but -hav-.
Ing become used to a reduced rate to
thit event, they balked on paying full
rate and as a result the attendance at the
fair was reduced
Becanne Ife Is n Carpenter.
S. W. Van Duyn, former state labor
