that ho followed the profession of tat?
tooing people for ? living and upon

An Opinion oiMmige Hart In.
Tn the Court of Law and Chancery
yesti rday .fudge Martin gave Judgment
In favor of ihe city of Norfolk In the
ease of J. w. Harbour, trustee, who
sued to recover betterments paid the
city under protest.
The .Judge, in rendering his opinion.
Stated that to entitle the plaintiff to
ro< i. er he must prove'?
1st. That the payment was made un?
der compulsion, or threat of levy on his
propi t ; and
L'd. That the assessment was abso?
The plaintiff fulled, in the opinion
of the Court, to prove either of these
As lo the first point, it appeared that
the notlco ?: demand of payment was
simply handed the trustee by the < \
Ctty Collector, requesting* lilm to lianu?
? I to the Court and gel ar. order lo pay
the sr.me; thai the Iru? ee did so, re
qu< sling the Court to allow him to pay
a under protest, and the Court mad,,
such nil older.
As to the second point the Court held
that under the cits charter ther< is a
licit on land for a local nssessini nt
made ngalhsl It as had expressly been
decldi d in Norfolk ?? vs. Kills, and
that nowhere In the charier was It
made a personal charge on the owner
unless the section giving the city power
to cloth, its collector with all the
powers of a shcrhf as to State laJtes
could be s construed. That It" any
such personal charge has sought to.be
ii ? le by the charter, and by the ordi?
nance of the city, such provisions are
void under the recent decision of Ash
bury \ s. city of Roanoke. which holds
that a lo. al assessment is not a per?
sonal charge against the owrit".
Tbe Court's decision yesterday was
that this assessment, so far as appear?
ed from the evidence, was a valid one
and a llert on the propt rty assi 1. and
that the city could have collected Lhej
snmc either by sale of tho land Itself
as i rovlded by the charter, or by a bill
in equity, and as the city was entitled
to the money paid by the trustee It can
not be recovered bock.

THE CITY CHARTER.
The Council Committee Holds mi Va>
' importNUl Sleeting.
The Council's Committee on Revision
of the City Charter met ut the city
Treasurer's office lu-t night to receive
suggestions from citizens as to any
change which may he desired In the
charier, but the suggestive citizens did
not materialise end the committee had
comparatively little to do. Those pres?
ent wen- Messrs. Sheldon, Wrenn. Alps
and Cooko, of the committee, and the
The commit teemcii were evidently
surprised at the lack Of interest shown
in the matter, especially since seme- fea?
tures of the present charter had been
discussed in the public prints.
The Court of Appeals having decided
that ex-City Collectors imd no leunl
rieht to collect delinquent taxes. Mr.
Wrenn was of the opinion that provision
should be made for turning over] Ids
books to the city; i
Mr. Cooke favored creating the office
of delinquent tax collector, and City
Attorney Shclton agreed with hlin.
At this point Chairman Sheldon said
that as ho one had appeared to offer
suggestions! he desired that the news?
papers would ask that the people dis?
cuss objections to the present charier,
especially as to the duties and plans
of the Mayor and the election of High
Constable and Police Justice.
The committee then went Into secret
session, with tli>- understanding that no
fmal action would be taken.
