State Board Equalizes Values.
Olympia, Wash., Sept. 19.—Rep
resentatives of the railway com
panies failed to secure the classifi
cation asked of the state board of
equalization Saturday. The board
today equalized first class or trunk
line track at $7,920 per mile and
decided that it would be impracti
cable to make more than one class
of rolling stock. Railroad repre
sentatives had asked for a valuation
of $7,392 per mile on main lines
and for a classifying of railroad
stock that would have materially
reduced the total of railroad valua
tions for taxing purposes.
The rate adopted by the state
board is the one decided upon by
&f>e People's Favorites
I the nineteen dissenting assessors at
the assessors' convention in Spo
kane last January. Many of the
assessors who were satisfied with
the lower rate of $7,392, previously
accepted, agreed after reaching
home to adopt the higher value.
A few large counties like King
and Snohomish did not. In these
counties the moral effect of the
state board's action will be that they
will hereafter probably come up to
I a higher assessment on railroad
main lines. It was this effect that
the railroads feared, as the board's
action will not materially affect the
railroads this year, but will be felt
by all property in counties where a i
valuation lower the state rate was
The values adopted by the board
on other classes of railroads follow: j
Second class, $5,808; third class, j
$3,696; fourth class, $2,000; fifth
class, $1,320; sixth class, $1,112;
seventh class, $1,056. The classes
are practically the same as hereto
fore adopted, except that a seventh
class, comprising sidetracks of third
and fourth class railroads, is cre
The total valuation on railroads,
as equalized by the state board, will
approximate $27,500,000, which is
an increase of about $5,400,000 over
last year's figures and a decrease of
about $500,000 from the valuations
as equalized by the county boards.
A reduction of $250,000 on city
lots was allowed Walla Walla coun
ty on account of errors in county
Valuations on horses and mules
remain the same in all counties ex
cept Whitman, which gets a reduc
tion from $25 to $20 per head.
In all counties cattle are reduced
from $16, as equalized last year, to
$15; sheep are reduced from $2 to
$1.50. Hogs are equalized at $3
per head, sewing machines at $10
each, wagons and carriages at $20
each, watches and clocks at $10
each, organs and pianos at $60
each. All personal property not
classified above is equalized at the
figures returned by the county
Compared with last year, the
board has reduced Kittitas county
land valuations from $11 to $9 per
acre; Ferry county lands from $9
