Mr. Strain said:
Is Assessed Too Low.
Compared with lan- owned as

assessed far too
lands which I have valued at JG.OoO
ler quarter and assessed at $2,000
per quarter will not lease for more
than $6 per acre for each crop, or
$960 "jier quarter. This rental Ik
paid once In two years which gives
$4S0 gross annually. It requires
eight and one-third quarters of this
land to yield $4,000. the net income
of one mile of railroad last year.
The assessment of $2,000 per quarter
would amount to S1C.CG6 upon the
naked land alone, leaving out the Im
provements and special school tar.
Take 17 mills upon this -valuation
and you have $283.32 against the
total net tax of only $243.03 upon one
mile of railroad.
Do you question the logic of this
illustration? Can any man question
It? Can auy court In ie land dis

cunning. It Is mightier than money.

Hac Never Shown its Valuer
This corporation has never shown
our assessor its value. It has never
presented him any Cruxes whatever
in support of its contention. How
can it do so in the face of its own
official statemcstt How can It dis
prove the official figures of the
United States government?
Upon what grounds, then can Ul
court remove- from wis corporauon
its taxes an4 place them upon the
shoulders of resident taxpayers?
It is a creature of the state en
titled to the nrivBegcs granted in
its charter. It draws its lire and
prosperity from tne people. To them
it owes a iust tax. wblcn I aetnana in
