STATE VALUATIONS OF PROPERTY FOR TAXATION In the State of Illinois, from 1839 to 1896, inclusive; also the public debt of the

State for the same time.

NOTE.-Up to 1850 only the aggregate valuations in the several counties were reported to the State officers, and from 1852 to 1857, inclusive, a few counties returned only the aggregates; hence the details of real estate and personal property valuations are not complete for those years. In 1867 and 1868 the details of valuation are not entirely correct, owing to changes by the operation of the equalization law. Since 1868 the valuations are as equalized. The total valuations in each of the several years are correct and official.

The valuations for 1873 as equalized are largely in excess of any previous year. In 1874 some changes were made in the manner of equalizing the assessments, resulting in reducing all the valuations, especially those of railroad property.

The State debt, as noted, represents it as it stood on the 1st of January in each of the several years to 1869; in 1869 and 1870, as it stood December 1; in 1871, as it stood December 31; from 1872 to 1879, as it stood December 1

CHICAGO REAL ESTATE AND PERSONAL PROPERTY.
Valuation for purposes of taxation, also the taxes levied, and the public debt of the city in each year since 1852.

NOTE.- From 1851 to 1862, inclusive, a lamp tax of balf a mill to two mills was levied on certain portions of the city, and is included in the above total
tax. The city debt as noted represents it as it stood
1874, inclusive, and on Dec. 31, since 1874. Valuations for 1875 to 1883, inclusive, are by the county assessment, as equalized by the State Board of Equaliza-
tion, and in some of these years do not include railroad property. The city tax on railroad property for 1882 and 1883, something over $100,000 for each
year, is not included in the above total tax. The above figures for 1889 include the districts annexed to the city of Chicago July 15 of that year.

ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD.

The following official table shows the amount of gross receipts of the Iilinois Central
