Quite a nntnlier of counties failed to
keep np the aggregate valuation of
taxnble property to that fixed by the
state board of eqnalizition last year,
as required by law. State Auditor
Sicbert has sent out notices to such
counties, calling attention to their
failure to maintain the aggregate
valuation. When the returns from
these counties are in the total valua
tion of real and personal property will
be increased not less than H.500,000.
It is aafe to say that the increase in the
valuation of railroad, bridge and tele
graph property, on which the state
board of equalization is now at work,
will be fiilly?l,000.000. These increases,
which arc little short of an absolute
certainty, will bring the aggregate val
uation of the property in the state sub
ject to taxation for the year 1895 to
