Won't Raise" the Assessment,
In the matter of the raise of the
assessed values of property of Linn
county us returned by the stale board
of equalization for the year of 1896:
The order having been presented to
the county court, by the secretary of
slate, as authorized by the state board
of equalization, raising the assessed
valuation of all city and town lots 10
per cent, merchandise and aoeounts 10
per cent, and cattle 25 per cer.t,. from
t he assessed values as enumerated on
tiie assessment roll for 1800, as lawfully
made and returned by the county
assessor, and it appearing that this
arbitrary and unjust raise of assessed
values is not warranted by fact, justice,
equity or law, and It further being
shown conclusively lo the court that
the property affoted by suid order is
usseased by the county ussessor as by
law required at their cash value, also
realizing that it is the exception to
find a net productive piece of property
among the enumerated city and town
lots on the basis ot present assessment,
also having evldenoe that the cattle of
Lino county are assessed at fully
their cash value of today, and farther
believing that the legally elected and
qualified assessor of Linn county is a
man more competent to judge of the
true caBh value of : the property he
views add assesses, than the state
board of ssssesors, many of whom
never set foot in Linn oounty, and
also realizing that a compliance with
this unwarranted aud Illegal order
from the state board of equalization,
would cause additional work on the
assessment roll to the oost of $500, all
of which would be wrung from the
already heavily taxed property owners
of Llnu county. It Is therefore order
ed that the county clerk of Linn
county, Oregon, be, and tie Is hereby
directed to make no changes lu the
values ot the properly enumerated iu
the assessment roll of Linn county for
the year of 1896, as wus equalized by
the oounty board of equalization und
Die county court.
