The precinct assessors met in session at the court house Saturday and dis cussed assesments and schedules for the present year. This year real estate assessment is made, and this part of the assessors' work was the feature of the discussion. The average valuation placed on Lincoln county land by the government enumerators tis in ex cess of $17.00 per acre, while the as sessors' average valuation is less than half that amount. The state board is i iclii ed to accept the government's valuation as correct, wnile the local as sessors, who are betteracquainted with the true value of the lands, believe the government value is way too high. The assessors are therefore in somewhat of a quandary as to what to do; if th y take the government value as a basis the assessment will range too high; if they do not the state board will proba bly make a "raise. There is not much land in Lincoln county worth $75 per acre, while there are hundreds of thousands of acres of grazing land that is worth from $5.00 to $10.00 per acre. Albert Stoddard Drops Dead.
