REPORT OF WISCONSIN
"Justice in taxation can only he at
tained by strict compliance with the
law. This is proven by universal ex
perience. There Is no other way. With
rare exceptions, when an assessor vio
lates the law and sets up a standard of
his own he either inflicts an injury
upon some individual taxpayer or else
he does injustice to every other tax
payer in the State. As a general rule,
every step he takes outside the
straight and 'narrow path provided by
law leads to greater and more glaring

degenerates into, a mere travesty on
