was urged by a group of promin
ent grangers of that district wno
appeared before the state tax com
The grangers alleged that the
present valuations were unequal,
and that real property, .was carry
ing the brunt of the tax burden. A
petition presented to the tax com
mission charged that the valua
tions of timber, lumber,' lumber
products and mills had beep re
duced more than 15,000400 dur
ing the past few years, while dur
ing tho same period the taxable
raluatton of other classes of prop
erty, has. been increased.
It also was alleged that the
county assessor. In placing the true
cash value-: upon timber for taxation-purposes,
, has resisted using
a timber cruise certified to him by
the "county court, and has not
properly 'nor correctly calculated
the. amount of lumber, logs and
shocks on hand In tho-mill yards.
The petitioners advised the tax
commission that neither the coun
ty; assessor nor tho county board
of equalization requires or, has re
quired milling cdmpanies.. to pro
duce any books, records, papers
or documents, whereby the true
cash value of their mill might be
determined. .. i
