HAS FULL POWER
TO FIX VALUES
IT IS HI3 DUTY TO EQUALIZE ALL
VALUES, SAYS SENATOR
LOUTHAN.
WRONG IMPRESSION PREVAILS
If Property Assessed Below Actual
Cash' Value It Should Be Raised,
If Too High It Shrould Bo Lowered
to the Proper Mark.
Webb Williams, tax assessor of
Maury county, has full authority un
der the law to equalize all property
values, according to a letter written
him by Senator Louthan, .of tho stato
board of equalization. The letter
from Senator Louthan is as follows:
"There appears to bo an impres
sion in tho minds of tho taxpayers of
your county that their 1920 assess
ment haa been made by assistant stat
isticians from Nashville, and that
your authority to mako your assess
ment as heretofore has been limited
or taken away entirely. This is an
error.
"The work dono by the chief tax
statistician and his corps of assist
ants in establishing the value of prop
erty is tmjmoncd to pretty fairly repre
sent the total wealth of your county,
and enables us to determine what the
total assessment in 1920 from each
county, should be in order to effect
cualisation as between the counties.
jlack. assessor ''has? been, furnished "a I
cooy, of the .proof, . Th,e aw .creating
ittiUaWlftjrd! ciOalUatiJn docs
not 111 any degree take from tho tax
assessor his duty to make his assess
ment. This is still your function, to
be performed by you as you have al
ways performed it, except that you
will be required to bring your county
and each individual assessment ty
cash ' value. In my general letter of
instructions to you I said: 'Whenever
you discover that the proven value of
any piece of property does not rep
resent the actual cash value, it is
your duty to correct this error and
to assess the property at its actual
cash value, and enter, your assess
ment in tho column provided for this
purpose on the proof transmitted to
you. This is true whether the 'prop
erty has been valued at less than its
cash value or in excess of its cash
value' in other words, our work will
effect, equalization as between tho
counties; your work should effect
equalization within tho counties on
the basis of actual cash value.
"I am of tho opinion that it would
aid you in your work for tho taxpay
ers to know that you have full author
ity and that it is your duty to effect
equalization within your county. I
am therefore giving a copy of this let
ter to the papers of your county with
the request that they' publish same.
"Soliciting your continued co-operation
with Hi is office to the end that
jut Ice might be done your county and
each citizen in your county, I am,
Yours very truly,
"A. V. LOUTHAN,
"Chief Tax Statistician."

IMPROVEMENT IN
OBSERVANCE OF
TRAFFIC RULES
POLICE SAY AUTOMOBILISTS ARE
FAST LEARNING CITY OR
DINANCES. STILL AFTERJHE SPEEDERS
Commissioners Ask Every Law 'Abid
ing Citizen to Report Names of All
Persons Driving in Excess of Twelve
Miles on Streets.
A week of strict enforcement of the
traffic laws of the city was reflected
in police court this morning. There
were comparatively few cases to bo
disposed of. Last Monday, a week
ago from today, police court was run
over with violators of the traffic ordi
nance, arrested on the first day of the
enforcement campaign.
Officers say automobilists are fast
learning the traffic ordinance, and are
observing it. They are learing where
and how to park their cars properly,
how to turn the corners, and above all,
Hint they must drive slowly on tho
streets. Drivers who "cannot drive
slew" should enter cars for speed way
events, but they have no place on tho
streets of tho city.
The police commission is fully de
termined that tho excessive rata of
speed shall be reduced. Officials of
the city have been notified that
"speeding" is one offense- which will
not go, and not only the officers of tho
city, but every law abiding citizen
has been asked to aid in the enforce
ment of this section or the ordinance,
by reporting to the police the names
(f any person seen driving on the
streets at a rtao in excess - of the
twelve milo per hour limit.

MUST HAVE DAILY
VISITS OF THE HERALD

Monday.
W. R. M. McKissick, county survey
or, camo in today to renew his sub
scription to The Dally Herald. "I
would not undertake to do without the
daily visits of The Herald," said the
genial official.
(hem. To euforco the payment of -the
dues at the amount fixed would result
in the loss of many members who
joined with the understanding that
the dues would be much less. The
loss of the members would not only
Iw bad for the Legion, but it would bo
bad for the community.
The American Legion stands first
of ull for better citizenship and for
100 , per cent Americanism. It be
lieves in tho constitution and institu
tions of America. Jts membors are
imbued with that spirit. They can be
depended upon to resist every attack
upon American inwtitutions, every ef
fort of the reds or socialists of any
sort to subvert American institutions.
Every effort is boiug made to get all
the ex-service men into the" Legion.
Many of them are not flush with coin,
they made great sacrifices to serve
the country during tho war and it
would be unfortunate "to deny them
the benefits of tho Legion.
The business men and f-irniers of
tho county are expected to back the
Legion. It is going to put on a drivo
this spring to add to its membership.
This will cost money. Therefore do
nations for the dinner should be liberal.

TO ISSUE BONDS
OF COUNTY FOR
STATE. HIGHWAY
JUDGE WHITTHORNE RECEIVfca
REQUEST FROM STATE BOARD
FOR FIRST INSTALLMENT.
1 4
HALF OF AMOUNT AUTHORIZED
Will Advertise and Sell at An Early
Date $100,OCO of tho $200,000 Pro
vided by Resolution of the County
Court Last July.
Judge W. C. Whitthorne, of the
county court, 'has been requested by
tho stato highways commission to ad
vertise and prepare for tho issuance
of $100,000 of tho $200,000 of highway
bonds authorized at tho July term
lust year of the quarterly court. This
Indicates 'that within a few weeks
work should begin on tho first of theso
stale highways, which will be the road
from the Williamson county line to
Columbia.
The authority to issue the bonds
was conferred more than six months
ago by the county court, but no re
quest had ever been made on the
county judgo for their issuance and it
is hardly probable that more than
? 100,000 will be issued during the
present year. Getting the roads start
ed was a much slower Job than the ad
vocates of the system had expected.
Under tho resolution of the county
court tho bonds will boar not to ex
ceed five and a quarter per cent In
terest and no bid for less than facf
vaiuo and accrued intorost will b6
accepted. Tho $100,000 received from
tho Rale of tho bonds will be supple
mented by a like sum from the state
and a liko sum from the federal de
partment of highways. It had been
expected when the appropriation was
made that $12,000 a mile would cover
tho cost of tho roads, but this Idea
has boon abandoned and it is assured
now that tho cost will be $16,000 at
tho minimum and may run even be
yond that sum, so that It is doubtful
If tho $200,000 so far authorized , by
tho county court will bo sufficient to
pay tho county's part of building the
forty-two miles and a supplemental appropriation-will
be necessary. How
over, this will not have to be made
until next year at the earliest.
