EQUALIZING THE TAXES.
Commissioner Court Still Canvassing
Assessment and Issuing Call.
The commissioners court la still at
work canvassing the assessment of
Brazos county as a board of equaliza
tion, with a view to equalizing the tax
paying In Braxos county. Thl la the
second week they have been on the
work and the probabilities are that It
will require all the balance of thl
week to complete the task.
The Eagle man was informed by one
of the commissioner today that they
were calling nearly everybody Thoe
called will be required to appear be
fore the court on the, day designated
In the call and show cause why their
assessment should not be raised. The
court will be arbitrary In the mat
ter, and If a property owner can snow
to the court that his proerty Is as
sessed at a fair valuation It will not
be raised. The object la to see that
everybody bear equally the burden of
tasnrton. They do not think It is right
for one man to pay taxes on hi land
at $" 00 an acre and his neighbor
across the lane to pay at f 15 an acre.
Not only that but under the full
rendition lasa they want theproperty
of the county rendered at It actual
value as the law- say must be done.
By doing this und Increasing the total
assessed valuations of the county. It
Is the purpose of the court to reduce
the rate so that the proxrty owners
will not In fact pay out mote money
for taxe than heretofore. The county
only needs so much money to
run It and keep tu the roads and brld
ge. and other public work, aud the
court knowing the amount needed, will
reduce the rate after the assessment
Is completed, to an amount that will
produce the required revenue.
The Eagle learn that they are call
ing the people not only on lands and
town lots, but on merchandise, stock,
machinery anil everything else.
A date will be set early In July to
hear the complaints, or rather the ex
planations of those called and from
the large number of notices being sent
out It will require two or three weeks
to give every man a hearing
