Following the recommendation of the state board on several of the re presentative properties of the city and a canvass of other properties In the adjacent territories It was the common belief that the total assessed valuation of the city of Pelding would be raised at least fifty per cent. Before the board of supervisors of the county began their work they were called together at Ionia to re ceive further advice from the state tax board. At this meeting the sup , ervisors were instructed to assess the properties in their wards or districts at what they considered a fair cash market value. As u result of this in struction the total assessed valuation of the city at the conclusion of the assessment and review, by the Board of Review, stood at $2, 489, S10. The work of the supervisors was then lnsi'cted by special men from the state with the result that the total valuation now stands at $2,569, 760, or an increase over the super visors' figures of $79,950. Last year the rate of taxation for the general city tuxes was .01 per cent on a valuation of $1,983,030. This meant that a total of $19,8 36.30 was raised for the general city taxes. Before the last inspection by the state commissioners the council had set the rate of taxation for the general taxes for this year at .0085. After the raising of the valuation by $79,950 the question of rate was brought up In the council last Friday night and the tax rate was reduced from ,0085 to 008.

QUARTER CENTURY EPOCHJH HISTORY HALF CENTl'EY MARK THE GOAL FOR EARNEST ITTFRE ENDEAVORS Since last week's Issue of the Ban ner reached the subscribers the Ban ner Office has been in receipt of many complimnts on the manner of cele brating the beginning of the second quarter of a century of activities. The communications from Judge E. B. Lapham and Chas.. R., Cowdln es pecially were read with Interest by the older subscribers. Twenty-five years is not long in comparison with eternity or in the history of a nation, 'but in the shaping and moulding of the life of an Individual or in the building up of a newspaper it represents a long hard struggle. Season after season has brought its disappointment to the ow ners. Periods of doubt and anxiety confront the business during all of these years. Only through the indomitable cou rage and bull dog grit of the owners was it possible for men, who gave the Panner existence, to pilot the paper to a successful position. Having obtained a prestige and sound footing through its slogan of fair and square dealing, the Banner expects to1 earnestly and faithfully continue the same policies and make, withal, a growth that means success. It is only through growth that all nature is permitted to live and make itself felt among the fellow beings and Inamimate things surrounding it.. As a booster of the best interests of Belding and vicinity the Banner has nlwavs stood and will continue to stand In the front ranks. It is with an eye to absolute fairness and future good of the community that all mat- I deed it is with a feeling of pain that ! criticism Is rendered. Only through j the realization that the welfare of the (community should come before that of nn individual are we led to question the acts or motives of the individual.
