His Honor recently heard an Appeal by owners of land on the Border which had been purchased some years ado and subdivided some of the lots being sold during the Boom for an average of $100 per lot messes. Morris and Jones Are the Appel its and his Honor has non suited them. His judgment reads As follow. Pursuant to Section eighty eight of the assessment act i beg to report to by Section 28 of the assessment act a fall lands in Rural municipalities improved for farming Stock raising or gardening purposes shall be assessed at the same value As such lands would be assessed if unimproved but in the Case of lands improved for other Pur poses the value of such improvements shall be added to the assessments of such the implement on the lands in question Here Are not of the nature mentioned above. They consist i take it altogether of the Survey into streets lanes blocks and lots and the staking out of the same upon the ground. How much these improvements have added to the value of the property it is difficult to say. The Only Tiu that can he said with certainty is that the Survey had enabled the owners during the last four years to sell some 125 lots representing about one twelfth of the Quarter Section for $12,500.00, an average of $100.00 a lot. The assessment is ten dollars a lot which on the basis of assessment in vogue1 throughout the municipality would represent a value r of $50.00 a lot. As 1 said at the hearing i 40 not think this is a Case where one should be astute to find reasons for lowering the value of the lots below one half of a the prices which the appellants have been getting from purchasers for Simi a Lar lots.
