Large Attendance of Pretentlng Tax
Payers. This morning at 9 o'clock was the time
set by the county commissioners for hear
ing appeals of tax-payers of the First,
Second and Third wards fiem the taxes
assessed against them by the assessors
acting under erdcis of the commissioners.
Soen after 9 o'clock a large number of
property owners assembled at the county
commissioners' office, but it was net until
half-past 10 o'clock that the commis
sioners met te hear the appeals. It will
be recollected that most of the assessors of
the several districts, in making the tri
ennial assessment for 1880 considerably
reduced the assessment as levied three
years age and in force last year, and
that the county commissioners, believiug
that some of these reductions were tee
heavy, and in some cases unfair, issued an
order te the assessors te increase their
assessments. Belew we print the figures
of the assessments in the First,Second and
Third wards for the years 1879 and 1880,
and the deductions made by the assessors :
lVardi. 1879. 180. Deduction.

2,2fju,ii5 3,134,1'je 132,755
:; 1,10.5,300 1,031,773 131,323
The commissioners returned the asses
sirs their books and directed them te add
t their assessments the following sums :
First waid $207,000 ; Second ward $144,
000 ; Third ward $131,000.
When the First ward was called, this
morning, the assessor, A. C. Welchans
informed the commissioners that he had
net added te his assessment the $207,000
as directed by the commissioners. He be
lieved his assessment te be correct, as he
eiiginally made it up and he declined te
change the figures. The commissiener.11,
thereupon refused te accept Mr. "Welchans' s
book, and dismissed the appellants, a large
number of whom were in attendance.
Joel L. Haines, assessor of the Third
ward, made a statement te the commis
sioners, te the effect that he had been re
vising his assessment in accordance with
the instructions of the commissioners, but
that he had net had time te complete it,
and asked for an extension of time. This
was granted by the commissioners, and
the appellants were dismissed.
Geerge 11. Mowrey, assessor of the Sec
ond ward, was en hand with his revised as
sessment, and a large number of taxpayers
of the ward were en hand also, te show
cause why their assessment should net be
increased as proposed by the commission
ers. It is understood that Assessor Mow Mew
e -y, for the purpose of raising the addition
al $144,000 in his ward, added six per
cent valuation te all property that would
K-ar such an increase ; but he still
found himself $30,000 or $40,000 short, and
te make up this amount he made a second
revision, adding a further increase te the
'-big prepei ties" of the ward. By this
increased valuation some of the properties
are assessed at mere than was paid for
them at a time when real estate brought
one-third mere than it new brings in the

Last evening the Lancaster Mamucrcher

The ball of the Humane fire company
