A GOOD SUGGESTION
. - Trier*! suggestion, in his (
charge to the James City grand jury
Mondav, that commissioners o
rrvenue make theil own assessments
.-stead ol a.*owing the taxpayers to
io so. ought to br fol No
st how honest men are. ihey
rone to undervalue their goods
A assessment time. An
honest, conscientious commissioner,
representing as he does both the
ea and the 9MB*, will be apt to
L.ve an approximately correct
valuation on the orc-.rary art
ld in homes and upon tarms.
rSatcal machinery should be un?
der a separate heading and the value
based upon the origma! cost alic
for deterioation. Wnen it comes to
? the returns of merchants, he
?quire the books to be omen?
ed before him and he should be
shown M statement, af'.er
ng the merchant udner oath.
I is an important matter, too im
portent to be dta.t with in thc
this city and c: nere ari
ar business. If the commission
*d compelled these merchant
"to show" him, we believe that thi
would have been different
I cases we have no doub
but that the returns were mad
jg*h ignorance, and that
was no d of evading thc lat
I to a 'alsehooi or. th
? of the merchants so affected
Next year the commissioners ll
be careful to see each merchant
books from r.e makes up h
cment. H.s billi or invoici
give them to him to the vi
ry cent. It au depends upon tl
rs of the commissioner
the matter and he has ail t!
he wants for this cours
y taxpayer is a* , he h
the court as a resort for protect:
at no cost to him. It his claim
just lhere will be no trouble for h
to prove it and to get relieved fr<
e erroneous tax.
