That Tax Is Excessive

Af . . Thn World
it.vitTMjSVlLMj. Jan. 13. Judge
j 11 cnariton or mo amuict court,
r.nilrrpj 11 decision ugallist tllo city
nf n.irtlcsvlllo Wednesday hi the
poll) n fur mi Injunction (lied by
iirop1 rty owner ot tho west hide of
iv ll Tho residents) of ecwer
lilstr ' iso. ij ASKcu an injunction
lo r- rain tho city and tho county
trea cr from collecting taxe
iitwel against lots In Hint district
for the construction of a sower
which lii been completed recently.
Ju Igo Chiirlton In handing down,
hi ruling, said lie hnd found that
lip stliiialo ot tlio city engineer
At newer dlntrlct' No. 13 Imd been
jiadtled nbout one-third, or $39,
377.4 5 and tho cfillro proceedings
baic 1 upon thin padded egtlmuto
were declared by tho court to bo
illntsl ami void. Tim court alHO
found that tho city had chnrged nn
(Xpei. of 7 per cent, or 1 10,907.08
nzilnit the project, which appeared
n tho main to bo u charge for tho
wrvircn of tho city engineer mid his
assistants, who wero paid by tho city
at large find that of thlri charge
19 300 was Illegally Included In the
Tho decision mado It plain that
Judge Charlton held that tho law
and the facts mudo It Illegal to
"vy taxes and lo baBo ordinances or
etabllsh power districts upon an,
ptlmati" which Is padded to cover
the difference between the fiico
taluo of tho sewer warrants und tho
actual catdi cost of construction.
Tho decision points out that tho
elty engineer based his preliminary
jitlmHte nat nlono upon tho cost of
Ittcrlul and labor necessary Jn tho
iVnstructlon of tho sower, but that
he took Into ronslderutlnn thn fact
that llio tax wurrants when Issued
"Would probably bo worth only
tventy-fIvo cents on tho dollar nnd
lie added to his estimate on tho ac
tual cost of tho material and labor
necessary In the? construction of tfho'
Mwer tho estimated amount of the
depreciated valuo of tho tax war
rants. Becauso of this procedure,
the opinion holds, tho taxpayers
were called upon to pay one-third
more than would havo becn ncccs
iary had tho cstlmato been inado on
a rash basis.
Judg Charlton also Jield that the
value of tho lota assessed were
from $10 to $300 each with ma
jority ot tho lots -worth from $23
to 1100, while tho sewer tax In tho
majority of tho Instances excocded
the actual valuo ot tho lots.
The rourt held further that tho
?n;!r.ecr's estimate was mads ftl
i.iost a year beforo tho sewer was
constructed, at n tlmo when tho
jr!co of labor and material was
greater than It was at tho tlmo of
the construction of xho sewer .that
It was made beforo Buch sower dis
trict wns established and that the
"ontract was let beforo such n tfewer
district wns declared n. necessity or
mtahllshed In said district and that
ncordlngly tho proceedings from tho
time of tho cstlmato to the passing
ot the ordinance of assessment, al
though apparently regular on their
face, In many Instances wero Illegal
and void and cannot bo upheld by
. A. O. Harrison, city attorney, an
nounced Wednesday nfternoon that
he would ask for a now trial and In
fe this Is denied ho would appeal
the cao to tho supreme court.
