REAL ESTATE ASSESS- MENT BY ONE MAN ( Continued from Page 1.) ! more, proportionately, than city prop erty. Some objections have been raised by Mr. Keegan and the men who workwl with him in the last real estate assess ment concerning the next valuation, which it is understood will be done by Mr. . Pilkington without assistance. These men think that it iffl't a one man job, and that one man will be un able to equalize values as well as twenty-five or thirty men who know every foot of land in their part of the county. These men say that no par ticular change, save in a few individ ual instances, is needed in the real es tate assessment, and that any change should be a proportionate increase or ('.ecrease of the present figures. Mr. Pilkington has so far, however, not made any striking changes in the ten tative figures he has placed down, simply taking into account palpable errors in the previous assessment and improvements completed since it was made.
