It is of tho highest Importance to the
tax-payers of the Klghteenlh congres
sional district that ex-Mayor Thomas
Wilson, ol tills city, lie elected lo n seat
In theStatp Hoard of Equalization. That
ofllco Is In be illled In November, and If
the tax-payers of the district consult their
own lnterels hi Ihe premies lliey will,
for the nonce, put aside political consid
erations and unite upon htm.
It cannot be denied that the properly
of Southern Illinois pays nn undue pro
portion of State taxes. This U so be
cause our ases?ors strictly observe the
letter of the law governing assessments
and value our taxable property at Its
cash value, while the assessors of North
cm and Central Illinois approximate the
cash value, and then divide the amount
by three. During the last session of the
Board of Equalization Northern members
admitted this tact, nud maintained that
the valuation was high enough.
Evidence that such a method obtains
up North, is furnished by the great Chi
cagotlrc. It was shown by u carefully
prepared statement that the property
burned was worth one hundred and ten
million ol dollars; yet the entire city ol
Chicago and all of Cook county, with
their larins and town lot, their building'.,
their cash, bonds ami personal effects,
were valued, for the purposes ol' taxa
tion at only $!K),000,iKiO.
It may he urged tint "I hero U the
law; it requires n fair cash valuation,
and the honest assessor has no discretion
In the matter." Anil this we admit.
There's the law, it is true; but eiHtom

and Central Illinois assessors have acted

Tho newspaper of Southern
Illinois, and especially of this city, have,
by the publication of comparative tables,
shown the over-valuation of our
projicrlty time and again ; and have
apiicalcd to thoso Interested, to elect as
sessors who would apply the needltil
corrective; but the proofs and tho ap
peals were alike in vain. Year after year
our taxable property, and conspicuously
our well Improved or wholly unimproved
real estate, was given u valuation that
placed it nearly or quite one-htiudrcd per
centum above the value of like prop
erty north; and to u like extent
placed an undue bunion upon the shoul
ders of its owners. .So manifestly high
hate our assessments been, at times, that
northern members or tho Hoard or Equal
ization, moved by a simple sense of Jus
tice, have voluntary, without solicitation
from any quarter lowered it from
llltecu to forty per cent. The sue
ceedlng assessor, however, Ignorant ol
