It Is contended by the relatora that the certain aaseaament laws with respect to municipal taxes In cities or the metronon tan class and those of the first class hav ing a population of over 40,000. a much higher standard of valuation or property for aaaesnment purposes prevails than the i "-'"B" oinuiu imhiiiiiib unum kmiv " visions of th general revenue law. It Is In evidence that In the city of Omaha, a city of the metropolitan class the standard of value In the valuation and assessment of property for municipal pur poses is 40 per cent or its market value; that in the cities of Omaha and South Omaha, which have a population bringing them within the other class mentioned property is assessed for taxation for muni- clpal purposes at Its actual cash value.
