WRITES TO CLASH
Says Publications in the Og

ERRORS POINTED. OUT
Contention Is That Editor Is
Wrong as to Railroad
An open loiter, addressed to William
Clasmann. owner of the Oglcu Stand -aid.
has been acnt out by tho state board
of equalization. uiiKWcrlng chnnrcn wbWh
It alleges tho Ogdon newspaper has been
mnlting ngaliiM the hoard. It refers to
the ut-ficsMiicni Per nillo of railroads op
crating In tho stale and compares them
with the asycssmeiita made in other
alatea. It declares that Utah Is above
(he average. The letter, whleh Is scir-c-Milanutory,
Salt Lake City. Utah, Nov. I. KH-
Mr. Wllllnin i.Ilasiiiaiin.-Ogdcn. Ciuh
Dear Sir- -For the past few dayn
you have been publishing in the Og
den Standard atiitcmcnts concerning,
the nssoasnicnlK of railroads In I'lah,
and In connection therewith, pur
ported ligni'cH to the effeet that rall
loada In Utah aro not paying aw much
lux in proportion to mileage as In ad
Omission Referred To.
You have staled that tho Trans
continental railroad In I'lah are as
sessed per mile a.s follows:
Denver & Rio Ornndo 13.000
.San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt
. Uihr. 7 12.000
Oregon Shutl Uno - 22.000
Central PaHlle ID. 000
Union PncWle. 21.200
Western Pacific 10,-100
Vou have, however, omitted to alale
that tho tljiuies Riven you are nl
for main truck alone, hut nrn the
average of I he assessment levied on
main tracks, additional tracks, side
and storage tracks, switches, and
abandoned roads, and branchea; and
you have failed 'to alate that all oilier
classes of property belonging to rail
roads, such as real estate, terminals,
Improvements, rolling slock, franchise,
supplies. on hand, machinery and other
personal property aro also nsHossed by
thin board, and. should be added to the
average given by you. which, when
figured as the adjoining stocks have
been figured,-would greatly Increase
the average total per mile of what Is
the actual main track of these roads,
-us main track Is considered In the ad
Assessed as a Whole.
Those adjoining states have sys
tems of assessment of railroads,
which require the assessment of the
road In those slates as a whole, and
this whole assessment is apportioned
to tho whole road In proportion to
the number of miles of main line with
in tho state.
Again you fail to stato that tho
laws of T'tah require the assessment
of railroads separately and iu detail
as to classes- of property, such as
main track, additional or second
track, brunches, sv.'ilehes. and all
real estate improvement?, rolling
stock, franchise and machinery, sup
plies and other property owned by
Taking tho assessment of these
transcontinental roads In Utah as. a
whole, and dividing thut assessment
by the number of miles of main
line, as main line is considered In
tho adjoining states, which you havo
used to obtain your figures, It would
glvo for assessment purposes In Utah
the following average per mile:
Denver & Rio Grande f33,.'523
San Pedro, Ixs Angeles &
Salt 7.alce 20."00
Oregon Short Line 40.IM4
Central Pacific 41,667
Union Pacific .10.000
Western Pacific 11.S49
Vou also fall to inform your readers
that the levy on each dollar differs
materially In each slate, being regu
lated by the prueticc followed In muk
ing valuatlona. and that It Is the levy
per dollar, more than the valuation
which determines the amount of the
tax to be paid.
