They consist i take it altogether of Hie Survey into streets lanes blocks and lots and the staking out of tin Saint upon the ground. How much these improvements have added to the value of Tho property it is difficult to say. The Only tiling 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 Vogue throughout the municipality would represent a value of $50.00 a lot As i said at the hearing i do not think this is a Case where one should eel through intemperance or other he astute to find reasons for lowering Stone for the same purpose.

Of this number 555 were enrolled in the last fortnight. Up wards of 35,0uu men have joined in this division since the War started. Recruiting of late has shown some tendency to diminish. The general situation however is satisfactory except that in some districts it is much better than others. Up to Date the total enlistment All Over the country is slightly Over 340.000 toward the Sereth River mid the Carpathian Mountain passes. Numerous prisoners have been captured by the russians in their drive and More guns machine guns ammunition Aud food stuffs have fallen into their hands.

With the russians generally on the offensive but with the Austro hungarians it and the germans tenaciously battling in cd against their further Advance. In the Region South of the Privet Marsh according to Berlin while Northwest of Lutsk the Battle is going in favor of the germans. Petrograd admits the penetration of the russian lines by the austrians West of Lutsk near the town of Lokatch but says that later the russians retrieved this setback. The announcement of the fighting in this Region would indicate that the drive in vol Hynia has brought the russians to Ltd Witlin Twenty Miles of Vladimir a Lunsk. The head of the railway running North through Kovel. The prices which the appellants have been getting from Purchase the for similar lots. Under All the circumstances surrounding the Case and Iii View of tile difficulty in fixing precise values for lands which the owners and those who have bought from them have evidently considered fitted for higher Pur poses than those of agriculture i do not feel inclined to interfere with the assessment. I have tile less hesitancy about leaving it As it is because no reduction that f might make would in any Way affect the amount of taxes which the owners will have to pay. Under Section 119 of the assessment act Twenty five cents is the minimum tax on any parcel of land and As the rate of taxation Iii Cornwallis was Only fifteen Mills on the Dollar in 1915 and it May he confidently assumed will not be More than Twenty five Mills in 1916 the assessment of ten dollars per lot will not involve a higher tax than the statutory minimum. I dismiss the a peals and make no order As to costs except that one of the deposits paid by the two appellants 2.5u. Be retained in each Case that is $5.ou in All the balance of the deposits will be returned to the appellants.
