SEWER OBJECTORS OUT IN COURT Famous Banker's Daughter la Wed Judge Charlton Rules That Tax Is Excessive and Illegal ESTIMATES PADDED av in Mnrfy instances Is Greater Than Vnluo of Property Liable 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 letter project. 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 tht court. . 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.
