BIENNIAL REPORT 



OF THE 



AUDITOR OF PUBLIC ACCOUNTS 

OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS. 



Auditor's Office, Illinois, ) 
Springfield., December 1, 1864. ^ 

To the General Jissemhly of the State of Illinois :

14. Comparative statement of the assessments in the several coun- 
ties, showing the amount charged, collected, &c. 

The returns of the assessments for the current year (1854) not be- 
ing complete, and as it is probable that they will not all be received 
at this office before the first of January, this report will not embrace a 
tabular statement of property assessed in the year 1854. A supple- 
mental report will be furnished during the present session, in which 
such statement will appear. 

The returns of 1853 exhibit an increase in the value of taxable pro- 
perty in the state over that of the previous year of $75,865,328, equal 
to about fifty-one per cent. Nevertheless, only a small portion of this 
increase should be attributed to the operation of the new assessment 
law, as by far the greater part of it is owing to the natural increase in 
the value of property. For a period embracing the last two years, no 
state in tiie Union has made more rapid progress in the development 
of its resources, and in the accumulation of wealth, or can show a great- 
er degree of general prosperity than the great state of Illinois. I am 
satisfied that, liad the taxable property in all the counties been asses- 
sed at its true value in money, as contemplated by the assessment law 
of 1853, the result would have shown that Illinois is able to meet all 
her liabilities without imposing on the ])eop]e a rate of taxation much, 
(if any,) higher than is paid in many of our sister states. Although it 
is but justice to admit that the assessors in some of the counties have 
discliarged their duties faithiully in the valuation of property as near 
as practicable in accordance with the requirements of the late assess- 
ment law, yet I regret to say tliat in a large majority of the counties 
such a valuation as the law contemplates has not been made. The 
practice of regulating the amount of taxes by valuing tlie property high 
or low, will always produce inequality in the assessment. The amount 
of taxes should be regulated by the rate levied, and the property 
should be valued at its true cash value. It seems to me impossible to 
fix upon any other rule by which an equality in taxation can be as ea- 
sily attained, and surely it is bad policy for a new state like Illinois, 
while inviting iran^igration and capital into her borders, to represent her- 
self as being in a worse condition than she really is. It we can show, by a 
correct estimate of the value of taxable property within the state, that 
we are able to liquidate our debt and meet our current liabilities with- 
out the necessity of imposing an onerous rate of taxation, that debt, 
which has occasioned so much clamor, will cease to be a terror to cap- 
italists abroad, or to any otiiers who may be disposed to cast their lot 
with us. 

When we take into consideration the prosperous condition of the 
state, notwithstanding the piejudice occasioned by the assessment of 
property at one-half its real value, and the effect of false figures up- 
on the views and movements of capitalists and persons immigrating 
to western states, what may we not reasonably expect if we can by a 
correct estimate free ourselves from this bug-bear, "high taxation?" 
It would be much better, in my opinion, to reduce taxation to one- 
fourth the present rate, and secure a full and fair valuation of all the 



5 [ V ] 

taxable property, than to allow the prevailing practice to continue. 
Capitalists will not so much enquire whether the state is making im- 
mediate payment of her debts as whether she is able to do so, with- 
out greatly augmenting the rate of taxation. If assurances are given 
that the ability exists without the augmentation beyond what is reas- 
onable and usual in other states, then this outcry will cease to be a 
barrier to the importation of capital, and the removal of its proprie- 
tors where they can participate in the profits so lavishly returned by 
the soil and trade of Illinois. 

It was hoped and believed that the present law, which so clearly 
defines the rules and modes of listing and valuing property as to leave 
no doubt of the intention of the legislature, would have produced an 
equality in the valuation, at least approximating the true value, and 
have prevented any just cause of complaint on the part of tax-payers, 
but from various causes this desirable object seems to have been de- 
feated. The hue and cry made by a few persons against some of the 
provisions of the assessment act, during its pendency before the legis- 
lature, which found a ready echo in almost every county, spreading 
alarm all over the state before the act was put in print, and an oppor- 
tunity given for circulation and scrutiny, created a prejudice against 
it difficult to be overcome by more considerate examination of its de- 
tails ; and when we take into consideration the fact that the county 
officers had but a v^ery short time to examine the law before they were 
required to act under its provisions, we may find some excuse for the 
loose manner in which it was executed in many counties. The main 
objection to the general principles of the law, so far as I have been 
able to ascertain, is, that it requires all property to be assessed at its 
true value in money. If this were a new feature incorporated into 
our revenue system there might be some plausibility in the argument, 
and it should be heard and answered witii a proper degree of pa- 
tience — but it is not ; the principle is strictly in accordance with the 
requirements of the constitution of the state, and is tlie same incorpo- 
rated in the revenue law of 1839, and in all revenue laws enacted 
subsequent thereto. 

The fact that there had not, previous to the passage of the act of 
1853, been any definite rule prescribed for determining the value of 
property, seemed to leave each assessor free to follow his own pecu- 
liar notion of justice — at least this was the practice in almost every 
county, and, as a natural consequence, property of equal value in 
adjoining counties was assessed at rates varying 50 per cent., and in 
some cases even more. That such a state of things should exist un- 
der a system so loose, with no fixed rule to govern alike all whose 
duties required them to act under it, is not surprising ; but that the 
s^me practice should continue under the existing law, containing as 
it does, clear and unmistakeable rules for determining the value of pro- 
perty, and why such inequality should exist in the assessment made in 
1853, 1 am wholly at a loss to account for, unless a satisfactory solution 
can be found in the causes already stated, with the influence of long 
continued practice and the want of time for a thorough understandino- 



[ vi] 6 

of the requirements of the late Jaw. It has been said by some that 
the present law is too stringent, wliile others contend tliat it is not suffi- 
ciently so, and that to secure a just assessment it will be necessary to 
require every tax-payer to swear to the correctness of the schedule 
of his property. It cannot be denied that all laws regulating taxation 
should be sufficiently stringent to protect those who are disposed to 
act fairly and render a full list of their taxable property from impo- 
sition ; for, as the rate of taxation (except for state purposes) is made 
to depend upon the aggregate value of the taxable property in the 
town, district, or county, it follows as a necessary consequence that 
if all the property be not taxed the owners of the property assessed 
must pay a higher rate and a greater sum to make up for tliat which 
escapes assessment. Hence all revenue laws of the state should be 
sufficiently stringent and coercive to compel every tax-payer to bear 
his just proportion of the necessary expenses of the state govern- 
ment. It must be remembered, however, to what a great extent the 
security of property and the protection of character and of life de- 
pend upon tiie sanctity of an oath; for this reason I am not disposed 
to require oaths to be administered to parties on matters where they 
are directly and personally interested,Jif it can be avoided, and if any 
ether ])lan can be adopted by which a just assessment can be se- 
cured it would be preferable. The greatest difficulty seems to exist 
in ascertaining the vahie of moneys and credits, as correct informa- 
tion in regard to this class of property generally lies solely within the 
knowledge of the owners or persons controling it ; hence it may be 
necessary to require that such property be returned under oath. 

That portion of the assessment law which relates to banks and bro- 
kers seems to require some amendment. I presume that the bank 
commissioners will explain the difficulties in regard to the former, and 
as to the latter, it is my opinion that they should be required to pay a 
tax on the capital stock used in their business, and the value of such 
capital stock should be ascertained and determined in the same man- 
ner that the capital stock of merchants is determined. Merchants 
bring their goods into the state and sell them, with a view to profit, 
and they are protected by the laws of the state in the prosecution of 
their business ; hence they are required to pay taxes on the value of 
such goods, whether they owe for them or not. Brokers, or at least 
some of them, bring money, bank paper, &c., here to trade, with a 
view to profit, and are protected likewise in the prosecution of their 
business, by the same laws ; but they say, we owe for this capital, and 
therefore we should be exempt from taxation. This subterfuge should 
not avail them any more than other classes. 

The constitutionality of so much of the revenue law as authorizes 
the auditor to issue sh^ess w arrants, with orders to sell the property 
of delinquent collectors, &c., has been questioned, and as it has but lit- 
tle if any advantage over the regular mode of proceeding in the courts 
against such collectors, I respectfully suggest its repeal. 

Experience has shown that the advantage to the public of having 
the delinquent non-resident list returned to the auditor's office, and 



V 1^ vii ] 

allowing the taxes to be paid directly into the state treasury, is not 
commensurate with the labor and expense attending it. It is, there- 
fore, suggested that the law be so changed as to require all the taxes 
to be paid in the respective counties. Imiglit suggest corrections in 
some other portions of the assessment and revenue latvs, but it is not 
deemed necessary to do so in this report. 

Under the law now in force the rate per cent, levied for state pur- 
poses is 49 1-3 cents on each one hundred doUars' valuation as, follows .; 

Two mill tax, to pay the state debt, - 20 cents. 

One and one-half mill tax, to pay interest on 

state debt, - - , - - 15 " 

One mill tax, to pay ordinary expenses, inclu- 
ding the interest on the school, college and 
seminary fund, and the one-sixth mill appro- 
priation to the institution for the education 
of the deaf and dumb, - - 10 " 

One-third mill, for expenses of.the Illinois state 

hospital for the insane, - - Sg " 

One-tenth mill, for expenses of Institution for 
the education of the blind, - - 1 *' 

It will be seen by the foregoing statement that the tax levied for 
the benefit of the state hospital for the insane is equal to one-third 
vof the tax levied to defray all the ordinary expenses of the state, in- 
cluding the interest on the school, college and seminary fund, appro- 
priations to the institution for the education of the deaf and dumb, 
and a large portion of the interest on the liquidation bonds. 

The tax for the benefit of the institution for the education of the 
blind is equal to one-tenth, and the tax for the benefit of the deaf and 
dumb is equal to one-sixth of the tax applied to the payment of the 
ordinary expenses, except the interest on the school, college and sem- 
inary fund. I will here remark, that as the funds for the payment of 
the interest on the school, college and seminary fund, do not pass 
through the state treasury, but are paid directly by the county collec- 
tors to the school commissioners, of course Uie one-sixth of a mill 
appropriated to the institution for the education of the deaf and 
dumb does not apply to that portien of the tax, but only to the 
amount actually received into the treasury. Not having tlie means at 
hand from which to determine whether the public interest will justify 
a reduction in the taxes levied for the benefit of those institutions or 
not, I submit the question to the, wisdom of the legislature, and hope 
that some more economical plan for their support may be adopted, by 
which the people may be released from the payment of any more taxes 
than shall be actually necessary. 

As the law requires the taxes to be paid into the state treasury by 
the first day of July, the greater portion of which is actually paid be- 
fore that time, it follows that the two mill tax, amounting to nearly 
half a million of dollars, and the January instalment of tlie interest 
fund tax, say one hundred and fifty thousand dollars, remain useless 



[ viii ] 8 

in the vault of the treasury, under the operation of the provisions of 
the constitution and the laws now in force, six months in the year. If 
these funds could be paid over as soon as collected, it would save the 
state a large amount of interest annually. This matter is therefore 
submitted for your consideration. 

Lists of the swamp lands approved to the state, lying in the Kas- 
kaskia and Edwardsvilleland districts, and in that part of the Quincy 
land district lying west of the fourth 'principal ! meridian line, have 
been received from the commissioner of the general land office, and 
filed in this department, and abstracts of the said lands have been 
made out and forwarded to the county clerks of the respective coun- 
ties in which they are situated. The foregoing are the only approved 
lists of swamp lands filed in this office at the date of this report. 

The large quantities of public lands that have been entered and lo- 
cated during the past two years has greatly increased the lists of tax- 
able real estate, and it is estimated that the entries and locations made 
during the year ending first of May, 1855, and which will be placed 
upon the tax lists for the year 1855, will at least be equal to the quan- 
tity entered and located during the two previous years. We may 
safely estimate that under the operation of the act of congress redu- 
cing the priceof public lands, there will be but little if any public land 
remaining unsold at the end of the following year, 1856 ; hence almost 
all the lands in the state will, by the year 1857, be placed upon the tax 
lists, which will add much to the sources of revenue, and at the same 
time relieve this department of a very onerous and large amount of 
labor. 

It is expected that liie maps, field notes and other records of the 
original surveys, now in the office of the surveyor general, will be 
ready to be turned over to the authorities of the state within a few 
months from this time, lience some legislation in regard to the recep- 
tion of said records seems to be necessary, as by the third section of 
an act of congress, approved January 22d, 1853, it is required that the 
state, by lav/, make provision for the reception and safe keeping of said 
records, before they can be delivered over to the state. 

The office room allotted to this department is quite insufficient. It 
is not only impossible to arrange the records in any kind of convenient 
order, but the large increase in the business of the department renders 
it impossible to do the labor required without a great sacrifice of the 
public interests, as well as inconvenience to those whose duty it is to> 
perform it. If provision is made for furnishing rooms sufficient to ar- 
range the records and business of the office in proper order, it will en- 
able the auditor to discharge the duties of the office with much more 
satisfaction to himself, and certainly with much greater advantage to 
the state. 

In regard to the present condition of the treasury I will remark^ 
that from the $29,024 84 subject to draft for ordinary expenses, at 
the date of this report, may be deducted the sum of $7,642 50, due 
for salari'js, and the sum of $5,067 17, to meet the interest on liqui- 
dation bonds, becoming due oi;i the first day of January next. Other 
claims that will probably be presented for payment during the present 



9 [ ix ] 

month, may be estimated at $5,000 00, making the sum of $17,709 67, 
which will leave subject to draft, at the close of this month, only the 
sum of $11,315 17. , There will probably be a small amount received 
into the treasury before the adjournment of the present session, but it 
is feared not sufficient to meet accruing expenses during that time. 

It is believed, however, that the present rate of taxation will be 
sufficient to meet all necessary expenses during the ensuing two years, 
and I need scarcely add, that I have full confidence that in making 
appropriations, such regard to economy will be observed, as to avoid 
the necessity of any increase in the rate of taxation. 
Respectfully submitted, 

THO. H. CAMPBELL

for the construction of a vault or safe in the treasurer's office. A very 
substantial and commodious one, of cut stone, of very superior quality 
and workmanship, secured with burglar-proof doors and locks, has 
been erected during the present year, and is pronounced by competent 
judges to be fully equal, in point of mechanical skill, and for the se- 
curity of its contents, to any structure of the kind in the western coun- 
try. The total cost of its construction exceeded, by less than ten 
dollars, the amount of approprition.
