OPINION ON LAW u Platted Bear Ex Varying Percentages Away From The paving problem which has been keeping the city commission ers guessing for several days was settled The city at opinion declared the ne of taxing up the paving cost to lots as the q nation what proportion of the cost to assess to the abutting property and how much to the inside portions of the was loft to the commissioners for set They decided it yesterday ends of lots abut 80 per cent of the cost is as to the first 2IPX feet and the balance is assessed as follows To the second feet i per to the third 5 per to the fourth 4 per to the fifth per to tho sixth That means that on Miller MIL wrp property will be charged 80 per cent of the cost of paving Etta where it abuts his and the other 20 pei cent will be passed on back to tho Other owners of parts of these The same rule will to thc Brinkworth The Bo bank covers all ol a so the method of as sessing the cost will not affect it On the block corner part of the cost of

the lots or parts of but It says lots onthe street The Is whether th whole lot on or only lot apt abutting lot been shall bear the cost ot the That seems to be the only question at I have given thd matter considerable thought and and find that the su preme court of Nebraska pasted this Identical question upon a statute In all essential parts bjr tbU question of assessment Is th isame at our own Conse a guide to go by from case referred to in which th court has passed upon th to found This Its a case where a party own ng 211x100 feet abutting on an alley cross the end of two lots It ought to charge the part of the lot dually abutting on the Alley with 10 whole coat of tho those other parts of the lot not act ally abutting on the alley nought e relieved from any part of the cost t the paving because they did not That is the same contention The supreme court says in Its pinion In the case above cited While te Improvement and paving of an al Is a special benefit to the low It does not follow hat portions of lots somewhat remote roni the alloy do not receive bcti from the AH laid lots extend from the treat to tho alley and necessarily onp the cost of paving the alloy op osito each lot is assessed upon the If the lot Is the cost a still to be borne by tho tho mode f apportionment to be based upon oine rule that will do justice to the overal owners of the he question UK to what constitutes a and proportion of the ex thus incurred Is one of fact to determined from In do of case these ro If a lot has been sub then the if to bo node upon the several pon an equitable and just basis in to the benefits t Is not necessary that tho ion actually abut on the alley In or to bo liable for a portion of the This opinion was rendered by Judge and It has never been uled or and Is strictly in joint with the question at By way of 1 wight say that if man owned the whole of the lot abutting on the paved every one say the whole lot would bear tho and the rulo ob tains if the lot IK subdivided it all still bears tho your cominis lon to decide as a board of ion upon a just basis a portion of the ot not abutting on the pavement Shall taking into consideration the benefits each part
