"There is much talk about the
,ual:izing of assessments, cash values
and such like going the rounds just
now, perhaps the best thing that

would be to atptl the suggsestion that
S. D. McEnerv m'ule in his first mes
sage he e sent to the legislature in his
aepacity as governor of the State, to.
"A State board of equalization
should be organized, not for the pur
lx'e of local assessmietats, but for the
preserving uniformity among the
parishes. Whenever a parish falls
short in its assessments, and is thus
inflicting an injnrv upon it.s neighbor,
the State board should be authorized
to revise the aessmienats, and order
them to Ibe raised to a uniform and
equitable scle.'"--Carroll Democrat,
We agree with our esteemed con
temporary. rTLis suggestion of Gov.
.McEnery was not. olllv a wise one,
but the very relnmdlv for the evil that
now confronts us. Now that the Im
partial historian is considering the
work of .Judge McEnery as governor
of thii: State, he will find great wise
dl)o:, forethought andl execntivesagaci
ty in all his oficial writings and acts,
which for all time shall stand as an
enduring monument to his ability and
But to our subject of assessment. It
seems that the assessment Is not uni
form among the parishes. Tax rolls
from many show such a low rate of
assessment that public criticism has
been directed against them.
If this continues unremedied a
serious injury to the State will be
occasioned. The parishes who are
now giving full assessments feel the
injustice done themr, as they very
properly believe that all parishes
should contribute in equal proportion
to the State tinds. It is true that
the tax is six mills on the dollar, all
over the State, but as every person
pays taxes according to the rate of
assessment placed upon. his property,
it will be seen that it is as important
to equalize the assessments, as it is to
make the actual tax levied equal all
over the State. With a State board
to revise the assessment of each par
ish, gross irregularities could be pee.
vented, and the State would no doubt
receive a much larger revenue.
Some men would be rather tough
