Following Is the total tax levy of Clack
ainas county for ach of the years from
lHH.'l to 1811.'! inclusive:
Yvar. Without Huadlax. Iiiiiilln Koad Tax.
iHH.'i 22 mill. 24 mills.
1HH4 18 " . 20 "
Ihh.1 1H 7-10 mill. 207-10 mills.
1KKII 22 7 10 " 24 7 10 "
IW 30 1-6 " 32 2-6 "
IKHH 22 mills. 24 mills.

1H!H) 2.1 IMK mills. 25 12-36 mills
lHt1 2.1 mill. 27 mills.
1HU2 2H " W "
m 21 " 21 "
It will lie seen that the rate of tax levy
for Clackamas countv for the year I Hi.'! is
lower than that of any other year
during the last eight years although the
roud tax of two mills la included in th
levy of twenty-one mills for the year I3H3,
while in the yeara preceding 1812 It was
collected by the road supervisors in the
several road districts of the county and
for the purpose of comparison should be
added to the ratea given to each of the
amounts of levy for the years 188.1 to
IHIU both inclusive.
I'uring the last eleven years there
have been but two years, to-wit 1&84
and 1886 in which the rate of tax levy
has been lower than that for the year
1811.'), and if the road tax had been in
cluded in the levy for those years, the
rate for 1884 would be 1 mill and those
(or 1886, 3 10 of 1 mill lower than the
rate (or 18U3.
The lowest rate during the last
eleven year was that (or 1884 which
was 18 mills without the road tax.
and the highest levy was (or the year
1887 which was 30 2-10 mills, not in
cluding the road lax; equivalent to
32 2-10 including the road tax.
