value thereon than he would if he were
listing it for sale, for the reason, he
fears the high rate. Take away the
danger of this high rata end the assess

every county of the state.
The first question an immigrant asks
a hen looking for a location ia our
state i "What ia your rate of taxa
tion." And whea you inform him that
it is three or four per cent he does not
take into consideration that the prop
erty is ohly assessed at about one-
fourth of its real value, but is intimi
dated in the matter by the high rate.
Take away this danger or possibility of
a high rat and in Marion county in
stead of having an assessment roll of
ten million dollars and a rate in the
city of Salem of four per cent, we would
have an assessment roll of forty million
dollars (which is nearer th true value
of. Marion couuty properties) and a
rate in the city of Salem of one per
cent. This rate would be still less If

tation of state tax due from each
county, upon a proportion that a five
year average of the arrwiunt of expendi
ture of each county for said period
bears to the total amount of expendi
tures in all the counties of the state,
is unfair, as in counties which happen
to have extravagant administrations
or counties which are required to build
Ipultlic buildings or other public im
provements, except rowls, the tax pay
ers of such counties are penalized there
fore by having to pay a greater amount
of the state tax, in addition to in
creased local taxes, than a county
where the administration is more con
servative and its public buildings are
already erected, although the last nam
ed county may be far more wealthy iu
values of property.
Under the old law where the amount
of state tax paid by each county was
estimated from the total value of tax
able property, as shown by the assess
ment of the counties, great injustice
resulted in counties who assessor re
turned a just and true assessment of
the values of property in the county,
for the reason that many county as
sessors, in order to reduce the amount
of state taxes due from his county,
would assess property at a very low
figure, often as low as one-fourth of its
true value, and only the tangible prop
erty of the county assessed. These are
the reasons that a man is required to
pay as much or more taxes on a little
