NEVf ASSESSMENT BILL.
C. 11. Hemingway Thinks It Will Only Per
petuate Unjust Discrimination.
To the Editor of The Times:
In April, ISM, a select committee to investigate
tax assessments la this District was appointed
by Congress. Tho primary return of the assist
ant assessors, as cstiinatod by tho committee,
was $.272,035,000, and this was an increase of
$125,000,000 over the previous assessment, and
nearly all tho lncreaso was made after tho in
Afterward a board of equalization was ap
pointed, and tho law providing that tho "cor
rected" and "equalized" assessment should be
not less than the original return was repealed.
Tho board of equalization then reduced tho as
ficssment about $75,000,000.
Nearly all of this reduction was on business
property and vacant lots, and very little of it
was on homes. Tho board of equalization was
practically an instrument of oppression to tho
Had tho original assessment been permitted
to stand, and had the rate of tax been lowered,
the homo owner would havo had much less to
pay. -Tho market valuo of nil real estate in
this District is about $500,000,000. A tax of one
half per cent, on this sum would raise an
amount equal to tho present roveuuo from real
A 10.000 homo is now taxed S120. Business
property of same value is now taxed '$37.50.
Vacant lots of samovaluo are now taxed $15.
If nil real estate was assessed at its market
valuo and a tax of one-half per cent levied such
a home would hm e $70 less to pay; such business
property would have $12.50 moro to pay, and
such vacaut lots $35 more to pay.
The Itoard of trade assessment bill, now fa
vorably reported by the Commissioners, is a sup
stantial re-enactment of the laws under which
the late assessment was made, and will perpet
uate the present discrimination against homo
owners. C. 11. Hemingway.
AGAINST BLAND'S BILL.
New York Hankers Lay Claim to Special
Interests and Privileges.
New Yobk, March 21. Tho meeting of sub
scribers to tho bond issue to protest against
tho seigniorage bill assembled at 1 o'clock.
Thero were present about twenty-flvo bankers.
The proceedings consisted in tho approval of
n resolution citing various reasons why the
seigniorage bill should not lis signed.
Tho resolution refers to the dangerous re
sults of the bill becoming a law. among which
an Increase in the prevailing distrust abroad
and gold exports are prominently mentioned.
It concludes as follows:
"Whereas, tho officers of tho financial insti
tutions, firms, and corporations of New York
became subscribers to the last loan negotiated
by the government with tho belief that the
marketing of the bonds would prevent tho
further inflation of tho currency by the coin
age of tho so-called silver seigniorage, and
feeling that, as tho loan was made a success
because of ".their efforts, they havo a claim
upon the administration for a veto of this
bill, thoreforo bo it
"Resolved. That in the opinion of tho rep
resentatives of tho financial institutions of
New York who subscribed to the ei0,000.000
5 per cent, loan and mado it a success the
coinage of tho seigniorage would endanger
tho financial stability of the government and
would inllict upon a suffering people perni
cious and unnecessary legislation, which
would be far-reaching in its disastrous conse
quences." Actress Waters Was Drunk.
Jebset City. X. J., March 21. The four
men who wero arrested yesterday upon a
charge of assaulting actress Adelo Waters
were discharged by Justice O'Donnell this

THREE BALL GAMES TO-DAY P
of Sport for Lovers of the
YALE OPENS THE SEASON HERE
Georgetown University and Columbia Collogo
at Capitol Park, Y. M. C. A. and Yalo at
Y. M. C..A. Park, and Washington's
Leaguers Will Play a Practice Game.
Thore will be three games of baseball played
in Washington this afternoon, two of which
will be by amateur organizations and tho
other a practico game between tho Kids and
Vets of the local league club. At tho Y: M. C.
A. park, Seventeenth and U streets, tho cele
brated Yalo 'Varsity team will open their sea
son with tho Y. M. C. A. nino, and thero will
without doubt bo a largo attendance. Yale
will put in her full strength and count on
starting the season with a victory. Tho Y.
M. C. A. team will be aLout tho samo that won
the District championship last year. Tho
players of both will bo as follows: Yale

Tho game will commeneo at 4 o'clock, and
Chnrley Snyder will umpire.
Owing to yesterday's rain the Georgetown
Lehigh gamo was not played at Capitol
park, and it Is hardly likely the two teams
will lie ablo to meet this season because of
conflicting schedules. Manager Anderson,
of tho Lohighs, was very much disappointed
in not getting in the game, as it meant tho
loss of some money. Tho boys left last night
for Charlottesville, Va., where they play the
Unlveisily of Virginia to-day, and from there
go to Richmond and to North Carolina, play
ing tho University of North Carolina on
Georgetown will meet the strong Columbia
Collego (New York) team nt Capitol park
this afternoon and endeavor the wrest vietop
from tho northerners. Georgetown will
present the samu nine as arrangod for the
gamo with Lehigh. Manager Horsey counts
on a big crowd.
Manager Schmelz failed to nut his men
through their regular course of practico yes
terday afternoon, the failuro being caused by
tho rain. As a consoqueuce, the candidates
for the League team wero given a rcst.and will
start in fresh to-day ,when tho Vets will make
another effort to win a game from tho Kids.
The members of the Washington club aro
engaged in a drill,to bo given previous to the
gamo on Saturday afternoon, when tho public
will ilrst havo .in opportunity to see tho men.
Tho Kids will lino up in front of tho grand
stand nnd march (o tho home plate, when, at
n signal from Manager Schmelz. they will
about face nnd give a salute to tho public.
The Vets will then mako their appearance and
go through the samo programme. Tho boys
are getting things down line, nnd tho only
kick is on Joo Mulvcy's failuro to keep step
andMcGuires propensity to Elop ana look
around. Joyco was a candidate for tho right
of line, but Cartwright wa given the place,
and "Scrappy" is now satisfied tho scheme
will not go through as it would with him as
The New York papers are paying consider
able attention to tho differences between
Charley Farrell and tho New York club over
salary. Farrell claims he only wants as much
as he" received in this city last year, while tho
New York management refuse to lie forced
into raising their offer. Mr. Talcott says the
season will bo played without Farrell if the
latter does not come to time. According to
tho present condition of baseball Tarrell has
no chance of playing ball with any other club,
and he will doubtless fall in line, as it would
not pay to remain idle.
RINGER AT ST. LOUIS.
Tanner, with Whom So .'Many Killings
Have Uccn .Made, Wins a Race.
St. Locis, March 21. Golden Gate's vic
tory in the third race at Last St. Louis to-day
was very suspicions, and all bets were ordered
to stand until a thorough investigation could
be made. He was entered as a chestnut geld
ing, aged, by Joo Hokon, dam unknown, and
won at a mile, a remarkablo performance for
a cold-blooded horso over tho sandy track.
The men who entered him aro unknown here,
and give a very lame explanation of how they
camo into possession of the horse. He was
entered in tho nnmo of G. Bell, nnd when
called for after the raco could not be found.
Tho horse was well played at the poolrooms,
but not at tho traek. Later ho was identified
beyond a doubt as tho famous ringer Tanner,
who worked tho Twilight killing at the fair
grounds last spring. Ho is painted n chest

Vigorously than Harrison.
More than ono-half of tho whole number of

1890, was 1.C9S. There wero thirty-two Presi
dential appointments mado on March 13, ISrO.
Tho number made by this administration be

ARE CONFIDENT OF A VETO
Wall Street Expects the President to
Kill Bland's Bill.
CLAIM THAT A DEAL WAS MADE
Purchasers of the Lato Bond Issue Say They
Wero Assured of No Adverse Silver Legis
lation Hailroad Eeports Discouraging.
General Tone of tho Market
New Yonv, March 21. In vlow of the rec
ognized narrowness of speculation, tho stub
born resistanco displayed in to-day's market
was decidedly encouraging. Tho belief in a
veto of tho Bland bill is again predominant,
and for this reason traders felt justified in
marking up prices. The conviction lias' be
come so general that tho bill will novcr bo
come operative that it is quito possiblo tho
street will take tho official announcement of
that faet'without any further demonstration
of approval. Tho telegraphic dispatch au
thorized by tho President to tho members of
tho chamber of commerce committee, advising
them not to visit Washington, as intended, to
adviso him against signing tho Blund bill, was
.construed to mean that their wishes would bo
respected without their presence being neces
sary. It is claimed that tho subscribers for
the roceut government loan wero assured that
In consideration of their subscription no ad
verso silver legislation would bo allowed dur
ing tho present session of Congress.
In tho hope of influencing tho President's
nctio"a iu tho matter and to assert their claim
to consideration a committee of seventeen
was appointed to visit Washington and mako
a determined stnnd against such superficial
financial legislation. Tho above telegram is
considered as, positive evidence that tho orig
inal promises aro in safe-keeping, and that
neither confidences nor implied contracts will
bo In tliu slightest degree impaired.
Itailroad earnings published during theday
wero not encouraging, but officials continue
to talk In a most confident lone nnd nssuru
tnelr Iriends that the outlook is daily growing
brighter. Shorts hate been inducod to cover
iu consequence of these predictions, and prices
are in many instances several points higher
than even a casual examination of their
weekly balance sheets would justify. Such
ronds as Atchison, Nashvillo and Northern
Pacific are manipulated so as to disappoint
every trader who interests himself on the side
justified by their own official figures.
The Grangers continue strong on prospects
of increase in both branches of traffic and
traders are generally bullish on them. Bur
lington shows surprising strength and gained
l,1 per cent to 81 on covering and rumors of
an improved outlook. The gains in the re
mainder of tho regular list wero not conspic
uous nnd need no analysis. Sugar again was
tho eenter of attractiou, and was eitremely
erratle in its movements.
The trading in this stock has lost all char
acter, and is Influenced by the contradictory
advices iu regard to tariff changes which
hourly nrrivo from Washington.
Chicago Gas sold off fractionally, but the
remainder of the industrial group was strong
Tho foreign exchange market shows no
signs of immediate improvement.
The market continued dull and strong
throughout tho dosing hour on continued as
surances that the Bland bill would be vetoed,
all other advices for tho present being disre
garded. New York Stock Exchange.

From tho Philadelphia I!ecord-
It is a curious fact that, whilo lithography
has made immense strides in recent years,
especially since tho introduction of steam
power presses, tho lithographic stones used
in such great quantities all come Irom ouo
quarry nt Sohuhoren. in Bavaria. Though
ether quarries havo been discovered, notably
iu Cauada, none has been found equal, in
compactness of grain and in point of recep
tivity to tho touch of tho artist's pencil, to tho
Bavarian stone. Neither, it is said, are tho
stones now imported equal to thoso obtained
thirty years aco. Nearly all tho lithogtaphio
artists prefer to draw upon a repolished old
stone rather than on "a newly quarried one.
The present cost of tho best slats is about
twenty-flvo cents a pound, and they weigh as
high as 300 pounds. Philadelphia has always
been a strong center of the art, and an im
mense amount of lithographic work is done
in this city for all parts of the country.

BUILDING THE BATTLE-SHIPS.
The Cramps Workmen Arc Getting Many
Ocean .Monarchs Heady.
Thero aro three government ships now un
dergoing the finishing process at Cramp's
ship yards, which tho company hopes to turn
over to tho Xavy Department by the 1st of
October. Theso are tho battle-ships Indiana
nnd Massachusetts and the fast protected
cruiser Minneapolis, the latter beinp; a sister
ship of the pcericss Columbia. The Massachu
setts has been placed in the government dry
dock nt the League Island navy yard In order
that her screws may be placed in po-ition.
Whilo in tho docks the ship's lottom will
be scraped and painted. In about three
weeks the Massachusetts will be given her
dock trial, and on June 1, if all goes well, her
unofficial trial trip will take place. The
Massachusetts is a sister ship to the Indiana,
which was tested so successfully two weeks
ago. The latter ship goes into the dry dock
to-morrow, nnd will be sent on her official
trial trip oil tho coast of Massachusetts about
Thesi battle-ships aro built for stability and
steadiness rather than S eeit. There is no
doubt, however, that both will exceed tho
guarantee of flueen knots an hour. The ship
that exeitrs more interest than any other now
in course of coastru :'..ou at Cramp's yard is
the cru'.ser MInneal oils. Th.s vessel is al
most an exact counterpart of the Columbia,
tha difference, being in the arrangemtnt of
tlie lire room, which gives the former moro
grate space nnd slightly more boiler power.
This difference gives the Minneapolis but two
smokestacks, whereas tho Columbia has
Although the first trial trip of the 31iune
apolis will not take place until Juno 13, the
men employed in her construction havo
already begun to sjicak of her as "the twen-ty-rour-kno:ter."
Almost everybody con
nected with the firm believes that the Minne
apolis will prove a world beater, and that she
will exceed the Columbia's unprecedented
record of &! S-10 knots by more than a knot.
They argue that if the Columbia's boilers had
not "foamed,'' thus ncci'ssitating a slowdown
at a critical moment, sho would have ex
ceeded 23 knots. Such an accident is not
likely to happen to the Minneapolis, and her
additional boiler power ounht to mean addi
tional speed. Altogether there seems to bo
reasons to believe that tho new cruiser will
establish a record ol nearly, if not quite, 21
k: ots an hour.
Orders having been issued by tho Navy De
partment pla.-ing the Columbia in commis
sion on April 8, her builders have increased
the already large force of workmen who aro
putting tho finishing touches on her. All of
her berth deck guns are in position, nnd the
larger guns aro expected here from Washing
ton shortly. Yesterday the scrubbers began
cleaning her sides of' the accumulation of
gri'aso and dirt. To-morrow the painters
will commence painting, everything in sight
to bo the regulation white. When all is lln
ished, the Columbia will present a beautiful
The next ship to be launched at Cramps is
tho American liner Colors. Sho will be fol
lowed li- tho St. Paul, her sister ship. Tho
big battle-ships Iowa and Brooklyn will not bo
launched until late in the Fall. When these
are completed the firm will have no moro
government work nt its yard. An improve
ment contemplated in the near future is tho
enlargement of the dry dock. It is not large
enougii for the enormous essels now bring
constructed nt tho yard, nnd for this reason
tho llrrn lluds it necessary to use tho big gov
ernment dry doelrat League Island.
