bred stock associations and owners of
registered stock do everything In their
power to Impress people with tho su
perlative value of their stock, yet at
the same time they object to Its assess
ment nt values higher than ordinary
marketing live stock. That condition was
practically admitted to tho state tax
commission today when J. A. Amsbery
of Mason City Inquired of that body It
It expected to recommend that registered
stock bo valued uniformly over the stato
at twice the value of unregistered cattle,
horses, hogs, sheep and chickens.
The commission laid down two funda
mentals In this regard to which It ten
tatlvcly subscribed. First, that county
assessors or their subordinates hnvo no
statutory authority to lay down arbitrary
rules fixing value of one class at twice
tho other, and, second, that under pre'
vailing laws, the stock should ho as
sessed, as all property Is Intended to be,
at Its actual valuo and levies made on
one-fifth of that amount.
