They Are CUiberlag Ststutlea for Fending Tax Salt. Controller Davit, a member of the Slate Hoard of Revenue, accompanied by Lieutenant-Governor Judge, acting a* an attorney for the State in the injnction auit brought in the United States Court at Carton restraining the various Asses sors in tb* State from assessing the property of the Central Pacibo Railroad at $*20,000 a mile, visited Eureka Tues day tooonsult srith the County Commit aioners and the Aaaessor relative to the case. Tbe oounty authorities were informed that if they desired to have an attorney from Eureka oounty in tbe case they oould name him and he would be made an attorney of record, provided Eoreka county paid his expenses and fees. The Commissioners decided that the attor ney* selected by the State were sufficient to look after the interests of Eureka county in the caae. An informal meeting waa held in the Court House Taesday evening, Commis sioner* Fraser, Hancock and Paroni meeting Mr. Jndge and Mr. Davis, It waa the opinion of tbe Commissioners that tbe railroad would not suffer from a $20,000 valuation, a* all property in Eo. reka was taxed higher in proportion to iti actual caah value than that of the railroad, and in the town of Eureka some property was taxed for more than it would sell for. The question was asked Mr. Judge, as an attorney, as to the course the Assessor should take if the case was not decided before the sea ron for assessing was over. Mr. Judge replied that the injunction only re strained the Assessor from being influ enced or controlled in his estimate of valuations by the proceedings had last April in Carson, and he was now left to his own judgment as to valuations. He thought that the Court would determine the question raised by the railroad com pany in time for the Assessors to fix their valuations before the County Boards of Equalization met. The State attorneys represent the vari ous Assessors, and it will not be neces sary for them to appear personally in Carson next Monday, the day fixed for the hearing of the temporary injunction. About two hours were spent in a gen. eral revenue discussion, and it was de veloped that it was bard to make some people understand that after the valua tions bad been made that the State Board could lower the State rate and the county boards lower the county rate. The Lieutenant-Governor and Con troller were of the opinion that the ac tion of the railroad was premature, and that they had gone into Court on the supposition that they were about to suffer an injury, which, when other val uations were fixed, might be found to be more imaginary than real. The Assessors in the State were raising valuations throughout the State, and the rate would be lowered to meet the raise in value. The law was not passed to work a hard ship on any one, and if the Assessors followed the law and did their full duty the railroad would pay no more taxes thao last year. The gentlemen expressed themselves as being disappointed in not meeting Assessor Hooper, who was absent at Elko, as they wished to ascertain from him if he is keeping up valuations in as sessing property, according to the pro visions of the Revenue Law. Since the above was placed in type it is learned that the hearing in the ease has been continued from the 15th of July to the22d instant. The Controller and Lieutenant-Gov ernor left Wednesday morning for Hum boldt county. TWO ENTERTAIN MEETS.
