Matter of much importance to people cities that want boards of equalization must turn to Longworth Law. Every municipal corporation in Ohio to have any equalization of the tax valuations of its property must proceed under the Longworth Board of review Law. This Point was settled at Columbus at a conference of the members of the state Board of assessors and appraisers attorney general sheets state auditor Guilbert Secretary of state Laylin and treasurer of state Cameron. The question of the Powers of the new councils to be chosen in the Spring to elect members of the boards of equalization has been answered in the negative As has the one of the authority of the councils now in office to provide for membership in a Board which will begin its labors after the present Council has passed out of office. A while the Laws relating to boards of equalization were not expressly repealed in the code it is held that they Are to All intents and purposes repealed by implication. Already Many questions relating to the City boards of equalization have come to the attorney general and it was decided that the county auditors should be notified at once of the decision reached by the Board of appraisers and assessors. Under the Longworth act the Board of review for the equalization of real and personal property can be appointed by the state Board Only upon request of the auditor of the county within which such municipality is situated. The Board is to consist of three freeholders not More than two of whom shall be of the same politics. Compensation of its members is to be fixed by the county commissioners. With boards to appoint in 70 cities of the state the state Board will have a huge task before it. Its members desire to be lightened As much As possible and to this end will ask that All letters of recommendation of candidates be sent at one time. No boards will be appointed before the month of april but the letters to the auditors will be sent out at once. Or. Stevens statement to the editor i now As Ever have at heart the welfare of the Community in which i live and Endeavor to be a Law abiding citizen. When i consented to accept the position As health officer under the new Board it was done under Peculiar circumstances which it is needless to explain. When or. J. A Reynolds reported the Murphy Case to me and after he had made two visits he was very positive that it was smallpox and declined to treat the Case for reasons Best known to himself and wished me to take charge. On investigation i found the Case very characteristic resembling smallpox very closely yet lacking in some particulars. With this i found a Young Man there who had been in the Toledo pest House with smallpox less than a year ago who claimed positively the Case was smallpox and found that he had some clothing that he had there which had supposed to have been disinfected and probably had been. With these indications i thought it advisable to take All possible precautions against its spread. Should i be in error As to its True nature i would be on the Safe Side by quarantining All exposed persons and vaccinating All not recently so treated. Now a second Case a child of Geo. Lantow has reached about the same stage the first had when i first saw it which leaves no doubt of it being chickenpox instead of smallpox. It has been stated by eminent men in the profession that in some cases it was impossible to decide Between mild cases of smallpox and chickenpox unti tile last stage. M. B. Stevens health officer. Along about Christmas time John Abele Cut his left thumb with the brass binding of a Calendar which he had received by mail. The Cut has bothered him Ever since Aud reached such a stage Friday that or. J. J. Reynolds had to Lance the thumb. John has not been Able to work for some time and is not in the shop at All today.
