laying track now they will be into this city iu ten days or two weeks if the weather is favorable The grading in this city has been pushed rapidly in spite of cold weather The action of the council in granting them the right to cross certain streets above i he Paul grade created consid erable comment and i meeting was held at the office of L Lichty Friday evening of those opposed to it After a long discussion resolutions were adopted protesting against allowing the grade to be raised and ask ng that the council require the payment by the company of all actual damages result ing thereby if they are allowed to cross the streets above the grade We un however that the company are disposed to do everything possible to reconcile all differences on the ques tion ASSESSMENT ques tion of assessment of property having led to so much controversy in different sections a decision of the Supreme Court rendered Oct 28 is of interest The case in point was that of A C Burnham appellant vs J A Barber et al appeal from the Emmet Circuit Court The defendants con the county board of equalization and board of supervisors In June 1885 they classed prairie land hot him proved and unimproved in one class for assessment purposes and fixed the assessment at per acre whether improved or unimproved The asses sors followed this rule and assessed the plaintiffs unimproved land at per acre the SK me as improved lands He appealed to the Circuit Court ask ing that the assessment be reduced to per acre was refused and he carried it to the Supreme Court That body held that while the board bad a right to classify property for the pur pose of taxation and the convenience of the assessors yet they had no authority to fix the valuation of such property The court say Absolute equality in the assessments and bur dens of taxation is impracticable While this is so the law requires that the results in this tion should be attained and conceding that all property placed in one class by the board of supervisors should be as sessed at the same valuation by the assessors and the result is unequal I then upon complaint of a tax payer it would be the duty of the board of j equalization to correct such ties Continuing they held that the burden upon the plaintiff was greater than it should be as improved lands were assessed at the same rate as his unimproved lands and the board should have increased the improved lands but as most of the taxes had been paid upon the basis of the assessment they ordered that the plaintiffs assessment be reduced ATTENTION G A next regular meeting of Robt
