Now if the state board were deal

reduce this unreasonable assessment.
but in view of the fact that it becomes
its duty to act with reference to the
whole county, and every town in it,
to move indiscriminately in
reduction, would be to unreasonably
reduce the assessment of these other
places. Inasmuch as the state board
cannot deal with Rock Island alone.
