There has lieen a great deal of ad-;
verse criticism of Judge I'liillips' de- j
vision on the special tax ijuestion. but
while it will work a great hardship j
for awhile we believe it right iu prin
ciple. There would lie about as much
justice in requiring roads to be built
at the sole expense of those owning
land along the same as there is in
compelling owners of city proiierty to
pay all the expense of sidewalks aud
streets' along their lots. In many
cases the owner of the proiierty along
which the street is being improved has
less interest in and less Use for the
stieetthan hundreds of others whom
it yill cost nothing. The only theory
on which the special tax can be justi
fied is that the cost of the street or
sidewalk adds that much mora to the
actual value of the property adjoin
ing it- an(1 tnele are i''st:lnl',, where
the special tax bills amount to actual
confiscation of the property taxed.
