- Diligent Search No Local Op-
tion Violations Were Discovered.
Sherman, Tex., April 13.—After a
session of two consecutive weeks the
grand jury adjourned at noon today.
In the report to Judge B. F. Jones of
the Fifteenth District Court the fol-
lowing facts are related. The jury ex-
amined 381 witnesses and returned 62
true bills for misdemeanors and S3
bills for felony. The jury sought dili-
gently especially to discover viola-
tions of the local option law. The re-
port currently circulated that officers
have been derelict in their duties in
the enforcement of the local option
law, the grand Jury found it not true.
The jury visited two of the leading
clubs where It was alleged that in-
toxicating liquors were sold and
found that the clubs were conducted
according to law.
Adjournment was taken until May

In the Fifteenth District Court yes-
ierday afternoon the jury in the case
of S. A. and Charles Crenshaw vs. R.
H, Kimball, for the possession of 400
acres of land and for rent, returned a

for rent and to the defendant,, Kim-
ball, $1,000 actual damages and $300
exemplary damages by reason of the
plaintiffs wrongfully suing out a writ
the work while the board Is in ses-
i and shall select the men best
____lified for the work In hand. One
ember will be a building contractor
id the other two will be men who are
familiar with real estate valuations.
I shall expect this board to make a
persopal inspection of each piece of
property and they shall place a sepa-
rate valuation, on the real estate and
improvements thereon. At present
there is undoubtedly a great inequality
in assessed valuations, much of the
property being assessed far above Its
actual value, .while a large percentage j
Is assessed entirely too low\ By em-
ploying the best men obtainable for
this work, 1 think we can more fairly
distribute the burden of taxation and
at the same time largely Increase the
revenue of the city. Property should
be assessed at a fair cash valuation
and do away with the custom of plac-
ing it on the rolls at 60 or 75 per cent
of its true cash value. In this manna*-
we can raise the assessed valuation
ot the city, and then if we Ho not need
the revenue It produces, we can lower
our rate of taxation.
“An Increase of our assessed valua-
tion will be found of great advantage
should we determine on a bond issue
in the near future. 1 shall instruct
this board to pay particular attention
to personal property assessments, as
there Is undoubtedly much money,
notes, diamonds and various other
items of this character, which have
long escaped taxation and this class
of property can well afford to bear Its
share of the burden.
“When this board completes Its as
sessment we will have a permanent
valuation on real estate for years to
come and no change should be made
from year to year, except to charge
each property with new buildings, as
shown by our system of building per-
mits. The expense of this assesment
will be heavy the first year, but once
we establish a permanent valuation on
each piece of property the future cost
of an equalization board will be small,
as their work will be office work only
and can be done in much less time
“[ bellefe all property should be
connected with the sewers In sewer
districts, as It seems to me, not only
necessary for the health of the public,
but a waste of money, putting in sew
tr systems, unless proper connections
M^e made. I will state along this line
that In many cities people do not have
this privilege without paying the city
for being allowed to make connec-
tions. I believe we should make an
effort looking to the purchase or build-
ing of a water plant that will meet
future requirements of the city, and
Jf we manage right, believe we can
soon be In a position to equip or pur-
chase a first-class water plant. Hus
may come sooner than some expect.
• I believe the city should employ a
competent engineer, one who is an
expert on grades and street paving.
Perhaps at present it would be best, to
employ him by the month, as l believe
there will be quite a lot of work tor
an engineer in the way of establish-
