Fallen Raises Valuations,
County Assessor W. H. Fallin did
not attend the assessor' convention
held in Albnay Monday for the reason
that be did not think the session
would accomplish anything. He baa
attended these convention before and
the assessors would agree on a basis
of valuation and then In making np
their roll go on an entire different
This Albany convention was attend
ed by the assessors of Multnomah,
Clackamas, Marion, Polk, Linn, Lane,
Douglas and Benion and it principal
object was to fix basis of valuation
for railroad, Pullman car and tele-
pone and telegraph line. Under the
schedule adopted railroad roadbed will
be assessed at $16,000 a mile and roll
ing stock at , .'(000 per mile. Here
after in all the Willamette Valley
oounties railroads have been assessed
at about $0000 per mile. But Multno
mah oounty last year raised valuations
on all property and put railroads at
$30,000 a mile. Josephine county was
the next highest assessment, Assessor
Fallin placing a valuation of $13,000
on the railroads. The third highest
in valuation was Jackson county were
Assessor Applegate raised the rail
roads to $10,000 a mile.
Assessor Fallin will make no mater
ial change in valuations on the assess-
met roll for this year other than to
correct such inequalities as may be
found. Last year he assessed all
property at about two-third of its
value except railroads which though
greatly increased was not up to the
two-third basis. This year he will
probably raise the railroad to$!9,.
000 per mile if the . other assessor of
Oregon adopt that basis. Next year
he intends to assess all property in
Josephine county at it full value.
This basi will be more fair to prop
erty owners and it will give the
oounty a better standing with Invest
or a it will show a low tax rate and
a wealthy oounty. Assessor Fallin
has his field work all completed for
this year except for the Illinois Val
ley and he and Deputy Assessor D. E.
Dotson will go to Kerby Monday to
assess that part of the county, which
will take about two weeks.
