Assessments Mineral Lands
In Virginia.
Richmond, Yu., Nov. C?
Mineral land assessments have
increased in the last three years
from $'.?,000,000 to more than
$32,000,000 for the year 1011.
These tlguros are contained on
the hooks of the State Corpora?
tion Commission, under the di?
rection of which body the as
sesBinents on this class of prop?
erty is now being made. The
State now receives something
like $100,000 a year in taxes,
but the counties receive a great
deal more, the rate being high?
er than the State rate. Repeat?
ed efforth have been made by
the owners of those valuable
mineral Innds to avoid paying a
fair and reasonable amount of
taxes for the support of the
government, but the efforts
have proven futile except in
rare instances the rates have
been advanced.

the voting wob necessarily
slow, nml ut some of the pre?
cincts the count was not com?

evident from the returns re?
ceived that the following coun?
ty officers are elected:
\V. H. Hamilton, republican
candidate for clerk, is elected
by a majority of about 11.
R. V. ,Wohlford, republican
candidate for treasurer, is elec?
ted by a very small majority.
1. .1. Bovorlev, independent
candidate for sheriff, is elected
by a majority of about 10.
W. W. (1. DotSOn, independ?
ent candidate for common?
wealth attorney, is elected by
a majority of about 100.

was elected a member of the
board of supervisors from the
