ple, people, the next year they will have just
reason to be less helpful. We do not
think there is much fear that anybody
will try to knock the assessment out
for technical reasons. Anyone who did
so would do an injury to the entire
county and bring upon himself the
just resentment of his fellow citizens.

Chambliss & Co. farm, the beef that
set the state to talking about stock,
also has a corner for his picture. This
bull was too big to sling, so they
made him into beef, which everybody
who ate any of it said was bully.
There are three articles devoted to
Marion county in the magazine. One,
"Marion County Had Greatest In

Star. The other two are by C. J.

The other, on Silver Springs, was also

Florida Motorist for July is a very
creditable little magazine.

Editor Star: In reply to Mr. Fort's
last letter in the Star, he tries to make
it a question of veracity between he
and I as to the construction of law.
Such is not the case. In his unkind
and uncalled for criticism of the
board of county commissioners in his
first letter he said the board was as assuming
suming assuming the functions of the tax as assessor.
sessor. assessor. This assertion is untrue. lie
also said, "Now their reason for as assuming
suming assuming this function is, they say the
personal property of the county is un under
der under assessed." This is not true, but
to the contrary. Very much of it is not
on the tax books at all. He also said
"they want more money." I said this
vas not true as the one object of the
assessor and the board is to get on the
tax books the personal property of
the county that never has before been
assessed. It is as much the duty of
one man to pay taxes on his property
as another and because a large num number
ber number of property owners in the county
will not give in their personal proper property
ty property to the. assessor, it makes it a hard hardship
ship hardship on those who do give in their
taxes to have to pay for those that
do not. The returns in the assessor's
office show that, many people have
made no returns for several years and
we know many of them have more
personal property than is assessed to
them. The law requires the county
commissioners to see that all property
i3 assessed. According to Mr. Fort's
construction of the law the commis commissioners
sioners commissioners could not do this, for the rea reason
son reason they are not supposed to know
who is assessed until July 1st. Then
he says their duty is to equalize what
is assessed. Suppose from sickness
or any cause the tax assessor should
have on the tax books on July 1st only
half the names of the tax payers of
the county. Then, according to Mr.
Fort's construction of the law, the
board must equalize the value of one one-half
half one-half the taxpayers and have them car carry
ry carry the burdens of all the people. If I
had been a member of the county
commissioners for 12 or 14 years, I
would know this would not be right.
As it is I have been a member but six
months and I don't believe it would
be right. The law requires property to
be assessed at full value, but Tax As Assessor
sessor Assessor Ayer agreed with other assess assessors
ors assessors of the state to assess the property
on a fifty per cent value basis. The
board will stand by him and he is hon
estly and faithfully working to get
the property on the tax books at that
rate and very much less in some re respects.
spects. respects. Can any reasonable man ob object
ject object to this? If the assessor and the
present board succeed in holding down
the millage by getting property on
the tax books that never has been
put on them, we will accomplish more
good in six months than Mr. Fort did
in his 14 years. In conclusion, I think
it comes of a little bad grace in Mr.
Fort to go as a member to the legis
lature and help to raise the state tax
from eight to over twelve mills, and
then come back as the Moses of the
county and warn the people against
paying the state tax that he had help
ed to put on them. I leave it entirely
with Mr. Fort as to whether this cor correspondence
respondence correspondence between us stops or not.
He cast the first stone without prov
ocation. I shall try to take care of
myself when wrongfully accused. The
assessor and the board are working
together as one man for the greatest
good to the greatest number of the
taxpayers. O. H. Rogers.
