CHARGES BY MR. BENNET.
The two civilian Commissioners are in favor
of a low rate of assessment on the property of
wealthy people who come here.
It may be good policy, but the law is not that
way, and until the law is changed so as the
Commissioners have the right to discriminate,
they ought not to discriminate. The law
ought to be enforced on the rich and poor alike,
until Congress, in its wisdom and discretion,
sees fit to confer discretion on the Commissioners
to discriminate between different classes of peo
ple. So long as these particular Commissioners
continue that course, it seems to me, Congress
ought not to reward them for an open and fla
grant disregard of a duty by increasing their
ANSWER OF THE COMMISSIONERS.
Representative Stafford The gentleman pre
sents a very serious case for consideration, if not
by Congress. In the cecutie branch, for the
bringing to book of these Commissioners who
are flagranti) violating the law.
Representative Gardner, of Michigan The
gentleman from New ork ( Mr. Bennet) has
made the most serious charge that has been made
against the District Commissioners during my
membership in the House. If he is right, he
ought to moc their impeachment before we ad
journ to-da. If there is am thing in this world
that honorable men appreciate more than another
it s integrity .and the integrity of two of the Commissioner.-
has been impeached by the gentleman
from New York for violating, openly, know
inglv. and purposeh , the statutes of the Congress
of the United States. Either bv instruction or
collusion, according to the gentleman, with the
District assessors, they arc making unwarranted
and inexcusable discrimination between men of
wealth and men of moderate means. J would
like to know, and it is due to the House to know,
the source of the gentleman's authority.
The District Commissioners last night in re
ferring to the charges made by Congressman
Bennet, of New York, made the following state
ment: There is absolutely no ground for the state
ment made on the floor of the House by Repre
sentative Bennet, of New York, to the effect
that there is a division of opinion among the
Commissioners regarding the assesment of prop
erty in the District of Columbia, nor is there the
slightest justification for the assertion that the
Commissioners have made or caused to be made
unequal or unjust assessments on the property
owners of the District.
The Commissioners do not make assessments
or cause them to be made. They are made by
the board of assessors, whose members are ap
pointed for life.
As to the suggestion that assessments have
been lowered as a consequence of the action of
the Commissioners, it may be stated that the
present Commissioners, at the beginning of their
terms, directed the attention of the assessors to
the fact that the assessment laws allowed taxa
tion of property above two-thirds of its. value;
that that need not necessarily be confined to a
two-thirds figure, as has been the custom in the
This necessarily would have a tendency to in
crease rather than decrease taxation and as the es
timated revenues of the District thisyear are near
ly a million dollars more than last year, the figures
in themselves, we believe, furnish ample refuta
tion of the charges made.
The Commissioners regret that Mr. Bennet's
apparent disappointment over his failure to land
one of these places for a candidate has slightly
warped his judgment.

The charge that District Commissioners Rudolph and Johnston
are openly and flagrantly iolating the law by permitting discrimination;
in the leving of assessments on property in the District of Columbia
was deliberately made in debate in the House yesterday by Representa
tive William S. Bennet, of New York.
Alleging, in effect, that the Commissioners favored the rich and
bore down heavily on the poor; that they encouraged tnen of wealth
to come to Washington and build magnificent homes by undervaluing
expensive properties for taxation purposes, the Congressman boldly
made his assertions. Above him in the gallery sat Commissioners
Johnston and Judson. They listened to the charge that the rich prop
erty holders in the District were awarded reduced assessments which
the law did not authorize, while against the small house owner was
levied the full limit of the statute.
Sending for friends on the floor of the House, they had Mr. Ben
net's statements refuted. Later in the day a joint statement was issued
by the Commissioners to the effect ihat there was no thr-sligbtest
justification for the assertion thsl. they fiad made or caused to be made
any discrimination in favor of anybody. They called attention to the
fact that the valuation of properties was made by the board of as
sessors, over whom they had no control or influence after their appoint
ment. It was intimated in the statement that the judgment of Mr. Bennet;
had been warped by his failure to land one of the assessorships for 3

CH4RGE WIDE DLRIG DEBATE
The strictures of Representative Ben
net were made during the di&cuson of
an item In the District appropriation bill
to raise the salaries of the Commission
ers Mr. Bennet bitterlj opposed the In
crease and proceeded to assert that the
Commissioners were guilty of lawbreak
lng In their management of assessments.
Commissioner Judson was relieved from
odium. Mr. Bennet stating that he did
not believe him to be a party to the
action of the civil Commissioners with
respect to assessments
"These Commissioners have adopted a
policy basd upon the discretion that the
ordinary person s property, the property
of the ordinary man and government
clerk, is based at 67 per cent 01 nis
property's market value." said Mr. Ben
net. "In the case of a man who has
made a great deal of mutity in my city.
nr the cltv from which he comes, and
who comes to this city and erects a
costly home, the idea is that the assess
ment of that property shall be at a less
proportionate rate than of the home of
the average citizen " ,
Favor the Rich Resident".
Earlier in his contest against the sal
ary raising amendment, Mr. Bennet re
quested that the point of order be raised
against the two Commissioners other
than the Engineer Commissioner, and
"Personally I believe that an official
put In an executive position ought to
enforce a statute whether-he believes in
it or not Any one who has looked Into
tho question knows there Is a division in
th Commissioners, and so far as tne
assessment is concerned in this city the
two civilian Commissioners are in favor
of putting a very low rate of assessment
on the property of wealthy people who
come here, while the Engineer Commis
sioner is in favor of carrjing out the
law .and assess as the law directs."
Representative Burke inquired the
source of Mr. Bennet's information, upon
which he based the assertion that the
two civilian Commissioners were in fa
vor of assessing at a low rate the prop
ert of the wealthy people of the Dis
trict. "Flaa-rant Dlarejrard of Datr."
"If the gentleman will step to the
telephone and call either Commissioner
Rudolph or Commissioner Johnston, he
will tell ou that Is their theory," re
plied Mr. Bennet. "They will say they
arc In favor of assessing at a lower rate
the wealthv people who come here to
make tbeir home here after having made
their money elsewhere, and I think that
Is a good policy. It may be good policy,
but the law Is not that way, and until
the law is- changed so as the Commis
sioners have the right to discriminate,
they ought not to discriminate. I think
the Engineer Commissioner Is absolutely
correct In his contention with his "col
leagues that the law 1 ought to.be en
forced on the rich and the poor alike
until Congress in its wisdom, and. dis
cretion sees t to confer discretion on
Itae Commlsatoatra ta differeaUiU be
tween classes of people. So lonjr as
these particular Commissioners continue
that course it seems to mo Congress
ought not to reward them for an open
and flagrant disregard of a duty by in
creasing their salaries."
Characterised am m. Serloaa Charge.
"Do I understand from the gentleman
that the law now vests In the Commis
sioners the discretion of the assessabla
rate on the property of the people living
iu the Distnctr asked Mr. Stafford.
"It does not," replied ilr. Bennet.
"Then wherein does the argument ot
the gentleman apply if they have no dis
cretion?" continued Mr. Stafford.
"The law is mandatory that the prop
erty in the District should be assessed
equal), and I think it is 67 per cent of
its. market value," answered Mr. Benne.
"If they have no authority to disobey
that law, wherein does tho argument of
the gentleman apply?" persisted Mr.
"That makes it worse," was Mr. Ben
net's reply, "that they have no discre
tion to disobey the law, but they do."
"Then I understand the gentleman to
say," was Mr. Stafford's comment, "that
some of the Commissioners are abso
lute! disobeing a mandate of the law
as to the assessment of property."
"Through their board-of assessors and
their assistant assessors," was Mr. Ben
net's emphatic assertion.
"Then, I think." said Mr. Stafford,
seriously, "the gentleman presents a very
serious cae for consideration. If not by
Congress, by the executive branch, for
the bringing to book of these Commis
sioners who are flagrantly violating the
"It seems to me it is a serious case,"
said Mr. Bennet.
Mr. Gardner feaesresta Impeachment
Representative Gardner, of Michigan,
became aroused at this point and said
that if Mr. Bnne. was right In hla
charges h3,.a Dve the Impeachment
of the Commissioners before the Houss
adjourned for the da.
"I made my statement upon my respon
sibility as a member," continued Mr.
Bennet, "and 1 will say further that I
have called the attention ot the President,
of the United. States In writing to & vio
lation of the statute by these Commis
sioners, within the last six weeks. If the
Commissioners desired an Investigation
the letter wah referred to them. They
have not as ct honored me, and, so far
as I am informed, they have not as jet
honored the President of the United
States with a reply. Having notified them
in writing of an absolute breach of stat

men the gentleman says, let them ask the
investigationat the hands or Congress.'
