Ann Arbor is equalized at $5,463,360, valuation of $579.29 per capita, of which $194.33 is personal. The equalzed valuation of this city is higher han that of Port Huron, Battle Creek, jansing. West Bay City, Manistee, Alpena, Menominee and Flint, which, ccording to the census, have larger opulations. It is, for instance, nearly ouble that of West Bay City or Meominee. It is $438,360 higher than Lansing, $963,360 higher than Port Huron, which has 4,000 more inhabitants, nearly $2,000,000 higher than Alpena. It is $1,831,447 higher than Manistee. Comparing the equalization of Ann Arbor with the cities of this congressional district, we find the result as follows: Eqoalized Valuation Population. Valuation. per capita. Jackson 20,798 $8,583.333 412.71 Ann Arbor.. 9,431 5,463,360 B79.29 Adrián 8,756 3,763,263 441.21 Ypsilanti.... 0,129 2,636,400 428.53 Monroe 5,258 2,392,775 455.07 Taking the per, capita equalized valuation, Ann Arbor stands third in the state, being excelled only by Cold water with a per capita valuation of $713.36, and Detroit with a per capita valuation of $690.71. lts per capita personal valuation is higher than any other city excepting Coldwater, being even higher than that of Detroit with its many millionaires, and more than twice as high as Grand Eapids. The average person in Ann Arbor pays taxes on $150.77 more than the average person in Ypsilanti. There is some food for thought in the statistics of the various cities for the state board of equalization and for our board of supervisors when they equalize in October.
