State Equalization Board Says 75 Per
Cent Increase Does Not Apply to
City, but Auditor' Iverson Rules
Otherwise, in Meantime Many Regard
Heavy Tax as an Injustice.
Special to The Journal.
Fergus Falls, Minn., Feb. 12,When the citi
zens of this city began paying their personal
property tuxes this winter they were dismayed
To lind they were nearly twice as high as they
had ever been before. lni years past it has
been the custom to rate everything very low,
and the state board of equalization has taken
note of the fact and raised the county quite
regularly. Recently the assessor here changed
the plan and rated personal property in this
city at a high figure, far above the average for
the balance of the county, and the attention
of the state .equalization board was called to
the fact that this is one of the cities that Is
not equalized by a county board.
In due season the county auditor received no
tice that a 75 per cent raise had been made on
the value of household goods thruout the county,
and the tax books weie prepared accordingly.
When the citizens discovered how high the
personal property taxes were this year, E. E.
Adams took the matter up with Mr. Sprague,
the member of the state equalisation board from
this district, and Mr. Sprague writes that the
75 per cent Increase does not apply to Fergus
Falls. County Auditor Lincoln then wrote to
State Auditor Iverson and he replied that the
minutes of the equalization board do not show
any exception in the case of this city. It is
evident that a mistake has been made, and the
citizens here are pajing the penalty.
As an Illustration of how beavily the tax ap
plies, the case of Rev. M. Satterlee, a Lutheran
district missionary- in moderate circumstances,
may be cited. Mr. Satterlee listed bis household
goods at their full value, $400, and the raise
sends them Up to $700, hi? personal property
tax being $35.38.
Aldrich Merchant Files.
George 'Olson, a general merchant of Aldrich,

creditors are Green & De Laittre, the Western
Manufacturing company andy the National Bis
cuit company of Minneapolis and Barrett & Bar

liabilities at $1,027.79.
