Meeting of Equalization Board.
Thursday of last week in pursu
ance to a call from the county audit
or, Mr. J .R. Timmerman, a meeting
of the county equalization board, to
gether with a considerable number of
members of the township boards, was
held in the court house. . Mr. J. P.
Derham, a member of the State Tax
Commission, was present, also Mr.
Mosely of the office of the Tax Com
mission's office. The chairman called
upon Mr. Derham to address the
county and township boards and he
made a practical talk on taxation,
explaining that there has been an in
crease in the amount of money need
ed to run the state government. The
appropriation for public schools has
been very greatly increased in recent
years; everybody wants to see the
Confederate soldiers liberally pen
sioned; the State hospital must be
well provided for and the reforma
tory schools for boys calls for an ex
penditure not required several years
ago. While everybody wants to see
lower taxation, yet very -few would
be willing to see any of these institu
tions crippled. At the conclusion of
his address Mr. Derham made sug
gestion's that will enable the boards
of assessors for this county to keep
the personal jroperty and real estate
of Edgefield county in line with oth
er counties. After a very general dis
cussion schedules for personal prop
erty were agreed upon, so that all
boards will assess property on the
same basis for taxation. The boards
have nearly three weeks of hard
work before them, as all real estate
must be re-assessed this year. The
next meeting of the board will be
held at Edgefield Saturday, April 8.
