Send Out Letter of Ad
vice; Duties Under Law
ITDIAAPOLTS, May 27. Inatruc
tiona and advice for county boards
of review which "begrln their annual
sessions June 1 are contained in a
letter the state board of tax com
missioners has cent to the county
bodies. The boards kave a certain
amount of original tax appraising
to do; have to review appraisements
appealed from township assessors,
and also have to harmonize tax val
uations in various parts of the coun
ties. Members or representatives of
the state board will visit the county
boards from time to time. How tax
payers' "property should be apprais
ed by the county boards and other
procedure regarding the fixing of
appraisements are explained in the
letter as follows:
"There is no more important work
to be done by any public officer in
the state than now devolves upon
you in bringing about a correct val
uation of "property in your county.
The law makes it your duty to 'cor
rect all errors in the names of per
aoxia. In the description of the prop
erty upon said lists, in the assess
ment and valuation of nrnnf'rfv
thereon, and shall cause to be done
whatever else imay be necessary to !
make said lists and returns of as-
sessments comply with the provi- S
sions of this act. The board shall j
pass upon each valuation and enter
the values as fixed hy it in a sep
arate column. The board may, on
sufficient cause being shown, or on
its own action, correct the assess
ment of valuations of any joperty
in such a manner as will in its'
Judgment make the valuation there
of jUist and equal.'
POWER TO EQUALIZE VALIT
ATIOXS. "The law further says that your
board shall also have the power to
equalize the valuations made 'by the
assessor either by adding to or de
ducting therefrom such sums as are
necessary to fix tho assessment at
the true cash value." Such equali
zation can affect any class of prop
erty. "Tou should examine the reports
from the different townships and
see that there Is equality among
the townshjps dn your county. If
any township assessor's valuations
appear to be too low, you should
not hesitate to make such adjust
ment that eacfa township will bear
its "proper part of the tax burden.
The great "bullc of the taxes are
thnsa levied by the smallest units.
Dainty and state taxes are very
Jfif;h less than the tax collected In
'.h'i township, or city, or town for
"Tou should examine the domestic
errporation reports and the supple
mentary information and ascertain
whether all the information requir
ed by these forms is given and we
urge upon you to see that an as
sessment as is required by law is
made in your county. It ds your
duty to see that all property in
your county is assessed at not more
or less tUan its true cash value.
"In the assessment of all real es
tate you should be governed by Sec
tion 142 of the tax law, which pro-;
vides that all real estate shall 'be
valued at its full true cash value,
which Is the price it 'would bring
at a fair voluntary private sale,
not a forced or sheriff's sale.'
SOME HAVE ERROXEOrS IDEAS.
"Some taxpayers have the erron
eous idea -that valuations in the
eous idea that valuations fix the
amount of the taxes they pay. The

valuation only fixes the basis on
which the tax rate is estimated, and
the rate depends upon the amount of
money the officers are going to

shall we spend? The real time to
limit the amount of the taxes is

heart has been mended. His engagement to Jocelyn Leigh, featured

Brown Tire Co..
168 Fayette St., Hammond.
Kelly-Springfield, Distributors for
The recent move made by the Kel-Jy-Springneld
Tire Company, in con
solidating its general offices in the
new ibuilding at 250 West 57th
ftreet, New Tork, is indicative of
more than merely an effort to or
ganize more efficiently the execu
tive branch of its large business.
The truly interesting and signifi
cant feature cf the re-organization
of office arrangements is the fact
that the New York branch 'has been
moved to the company's warehouse
at 553 West 57th street, a step
which is really equivalent to giving
up the branch altogether, since it
has now no display rooms, sales
counters or any of the other appur
tenances of the usual tire store.
For many years the Kelly Com
pany, in common with oeher large
tire companies, maintained hand
some and attractive showrooms. The
Kelly Company, however, realized
that with the stabilizing of the in
dustry the maintenance of these ex
pensive establishments was a relic
of the prosperous days of a rapidly
growing industry rather than an
economic necessity for a concern
manufacturing articles that have
now become almost staple products.
With the discontinuance of all re
tail sales a step which was taken
to protect the dealer the factory
branch was deemed an unnecessary
expense which only added to the
overhead; in cutting out this ex
pense in all cities, which the com
pany intends to do as soon as prac
ticable, a considerable saving will
be effected, and it was partly in
anticipation of this saving in oper
ating costs that the prices of Kelly
products were recently brought
down to a competitive basis.
The company intends to establish
warehouses in various centers of
distribution where railroad facilities
are best fluted to srive prompt serv
ice to its dealers, and where it now
maintains brandies these will be
supplanted by offices, which in many
cases will be in the warehouses
There seems to be good reason to
believe that this move of the Kelly
Company in 'being the first to dis
continue its branch in the largest
city of the country roay forecast the
attitude of other large tire com
panies with respect to the future
conduct of the industry in an en
deavor to bring the tire business to
the same point of economic perfec
tion as that which marks the older
lines of trade.
