Syllabus

The part of an interstate oil pipeline which traversed a special road improvement district, and which was constructed at less than $9,000 per mile, was taxed for benefits at $5,000 per mile, though the benefit that it actually received from the road, if any, was small. Held that the assessment was arbitrary and unreasonable in amount. P. 277 U. S. 162.

19 F.2d 3 reversed.

Certiorari, 275 U.S. 520, to a decree of the circuit court of appeals which reversed a decree of the district court enjoining the collection of a special improvement tax.
