Hrlgndlcr JHles, who did, is tho hero of

But so long ns Brigadier Crook sees
the eagle on Brigadier Miles' shoulder,

Within tho past tlneo or four days
tho Mexican Minister has supplemented
tho Arbonians by filing n letter of pro

begins to look as if this cntiro Aptcho

than the Interests of tho white settler
or tlio improvement of tho Indian.
The removal bill, having passed tho

However much Brigadier Miles mty

which hail all cad y massacred over 000
of our poldlers anil settlers iu the South,

with this same Gcronimo, did not cap

among the people still desirous of pre

to suppose that Indians of not only the

that ho was with Geionimo's band in

befoio the Tcnitory indicted for tho
most atrocious murders ever committed
To tho question as lo whether or not
thei-o Apaches can escape fiom tho

find their way back through a familiar

tho General will piobably answer by

This saino olllcer, well grounded in
tlio petty jealousies and hcart-buinings
of regular anny life, says: "Becauso of

With a view lo sounding opinion nn

On at least two occasions I tried to havo

enmo was not worth the candle, for I

which is separated from mo by tho en

I received the reply: 'Wo will hold you

"What do you think of the views of
Mr. Warner on this subject?" luquiicd
"In my judgment." continued Mr.
Asbford, "he is. mistaken. In the light
uf expcilenco nnd observation in other

Take for instance the city of B iltlmore.
Its assessment system is" tin admirable
one. Its press lias never hesitated to
expoEO tho short comings of any of Its
officials, and yet lis advancement In

other city in tho countiy.
"Tho truth never yet lnjuied any

expose any unjust or unequal adminis

fiom incapacity, lack of system or coi

In legislation nnd no csponeni of our

tbut our wholo system of laud laws
sadly needs lefoimlng. Wlillo noarly,
if not all, of tho States havo established

thero aro acres of land In this city,
abandoned bv tho owners over sixty
ycais ngo, which would long since havo
been improved, but which still remain
vacant, yielding little ornorovenuo to
the District, Somo flvo years slnco I

II. B. WoonWAitu "I can't say
that 1 am vciy familiar with the pro
cess followed by the assessois of tho
Distiict of Columbia as regards valua
tions on real estate, but I tun satisfied
that the woik might bo more carefully
done. As nn Illustration, thu house in
which I am living (1 lliJ Seventeenth
street) was, as my father had consid
ered, valued entlicly too high, and a
protest was made to the Board of As
sessors. They recognbed the justico of
Iho piotest. but did not have time to act
on it, and ns a result we had to pay
inxes in accordance wuu 111c valua
tion. "For Ibis reason I think that the Dis
tiict ought to have a permanent board,
so that complaints of tills naturo could
bo adjusted. It would certainly glvo
oppoiiuiiity for a more tlioiotigli and
satisfactory valuation. That tho peo
ple of limited means fieqiiently pay
toxes on loo high a valuation, and those
who arc larger propetly owners and
capitalists on too low a valuation, there
is no question, and tlio sooner the diffi

J. J. Daumngiox "Yes, I know
that there is ronsidciable inequality in
relation to our taxes, and thero is but

ing, the United States Trust building,
coinciof New York nvenuc nnd Fif
teenth street, which I nm cicdltnbly
informed cost $200,000, and it is equal
Wed at 500,000. TI1I3 is n btand new
bidding, and is only a fail illustration
of how many pioperties arc equalized
in tho noithwest. Whether a petma
utnt Board of Equalization would
lemcdy the existing tliiliculty I am un
able lo say. It would depend some
what on the men who weio selected to
do the woik and tho manner in which
they were compensated for It."
FitAi.K T. BrsowMMi "I am very
positive that the manner in which the
assessment busiuess has bcencairied ou
iu the District for ycais lias worked a
cieat injustice to the pooi. Bverj'body
that has given oui piescnt mo'do of

see that piopeity in tlio old pait of the

the Capitol, on tlio Avenue, nnd,
in that locality, that pioperty is valued
(00 high, while in Iho northwest it is
entirely too low ns compaied with the
improvements and progiess that is be
ing made theie. I know that in tho
oldpaitof town thero nre propel ties
assessed at a valuation tint it
would bo impossible to sell at.
Take fov Instance tho old May propeity,
on C stieet, between Thltd and Four
and n-half streets, it cannot be sold to
day for 'Jlo.OOO, wherea9 befoio tho war
this same place was worth 23,000. I
don't believe in this idea of assessing
pioperty up to a full valuation, particu
larly in sections wheietheio is no ad
vancement. 1'iopeity, in my opinion,
ought to be assessed at exactly what it
would bilng at a foiced salo under tho
most unfavoiable ciictunstances.
