Storage Plant of the Lehigh Val ley at South PlainfieJd has been Overlooked. MAKING INVESTIGATION. New Assessor in Piscataway Township made Important Discovery? Authorities Thought the Railroad Was Paying a State Tax but Learn Differently? Means Much to the County. For the past eleven years the Lehigh Valley railroad has paid no tax on their vast storage grounds at Sonth Plainfield. This has been discovered by George E. Bating who has jnst been elected tax assessor for Piscat away township in which the storage grounds are located. Upon inqniry he learned that the township has been of the opinion that the State levies a tax for this big storage business. He also learned that the State has no jurisdiction and that it has not been levying any tax upon it. The assessor has consulted Lawyer Harry Ranyon, of Plainfield, con cerning the matter and an investiga tion is now on to determine the town ship's rfght to assess this property and its right to collect back taxes. Lawyer Rnnyon today said that lie thought the township's claim a good one. The property is very valuable and some interested people claim that its valuation will amount to as much as the valuation of all the rest of the county. The net valuation of the township last year was $1,514,401. If the Le high's plant is worth as much, the tax* buTden other people of Piscat away town will not be as great. The matter will doubtless be sifted thoroughly next month ;when the County Board of Assessors meet to make proper adjustment of the amount of taxes to be raised.
