dares with conviction that is
infinitely better to have property
assessed at its true
only because the law requires it
but as a matter of policy-and
have a low tar. rate, than to
have a low valuation of property
and a high tax The
Landmark holds that an actual-
value assessment would make a
difference only to the large tax-
payer, who as it truly says-
does not bear his proportion of
the burden under the system
now generally prevailing and
would consequently have no just
cause for complaint
We do not believe that these
propositions regarding the assess-
of property can be success-
fully controverted. Charlotte

North Carolina is

but they want a stop put to it. It
is results and not talk they are
after. When goods are hauled
through the State to a point be-
for less than the rate would
have been to stop them in the
State, there is good ground for a
kick North Carolina wants her
rights. She needs every cent of
money, f r education, for

and it is but right that our
people should seek to get justice
for the old North State in the
matter of freight rates.
