Va? Oct, 20.? In Supreme Court the case of Tax Commissioner Dillon et al. versus It. F. Bare and S. T. Carter, assessors of T( Fayette county, on mandamus to coin- ^ pel said assesors. to reassess certain Fayette county leaseholds at what the ^ tax commissioenr holds to he more , neurly their true und actual value ^ than that first returned by the assessors, was argued and submitted. As- ( sessors placed a valuation of about, j half a million on the property In questlon, while Tax Commissioner Dillon j( holds It to be worth about six millions. Ir. W. Cordon Matthews opened the argument for the State and argued that the gap between the true, aud j actual value of the property in ques- jn tlon and the value as fixed by the as- (n sesors are so wide as to continue fraud. He alleged against assessors gross mususe of powers. ^ What Defense Contends. Attorneys G. W. Price and Gen. J. er W.

The personal prop- | erty and Improvements aggregated I about $1100.000, which subtracted from ^ the selling price leaves $800,000. which Is approximately Mr. Dillon's Idea, as to the value of the leasehold.
