ASSESSED VALUE OF LAND , RAISED FIVE PER CENT. As a result of tho visit of tho coun ty commissioners to Lincoln and the appearance of those officials before the stato board of equalization, the assessed value of land in Lincoln county has been raised but fl7o por cent, Instead of ten as formerly an nounced by the state board. The average assessed" valuo of land per aero as determined by tho county board was $1.01, and the state board proceeded to boost tho valuation ton por cent, making it $1.77 per acre. The commissioners appeared before the state board and argued that, in view of tho largo acreage of purely grazing land in tho county $1.77 was too high. The state board upon tho showing made by the county commls- ers agreed to an advanco of flvo per cent Instend of ten, and under this advance the average assessed value is $1.09 nor acre. As there aro over a million acre3 of land in the county, the saving thus made to the taxpayers by tho commis sioners' visit to Lincoln will be quite a sum. :o::- NcvlIIe Regius Campnlgn.
