    Sec. 4. In levying any special assessment or special tax, each lot, block, tract or parcel of land shall be assessed separately, in the same manner as upon assessment for general taxation: Provided, that this requirement shall not apply to the property of railroad companies, or the right of way and franchise of street railway companies, but the same may be described in any manner sufficient to reasonably identify the property intended to be assessed.
