fication shall take into consideration the number of individ-
ual lots or parcels assessed, the assessable basis, the number
of assessors employed and other pertinent factors, relating to
the work of said assessors.

SEC. 2. And be it further enacted, That nothing in this Act
shall be construed to reduce the salary or compensation re-
ceived by any Supervisor of Assessments or any assessor now
in office or affect the sums received by them as expenses in-
cident to the performance of their duties.
