CENSUS F PROPERTY IN CITY
Cltj Collector With Tkree Men Makes
UXutrut of Colrabia.
Returns from the first property
census ever made in Columbia were
handtd in to the City Clerk today by
B. Wi Jacobs, city collector, who with
three men. has been canvassing the
city for three weeks. The work was
undertaken with a view of expediting
the collection of the vehicle and dog
taxes.'1 It was "found that" 423 auto
mobiles belong to Columbians. There
are "ninety-five two-horse wagons here,
306 one-horse vehicles, and twenty
Four hundred and eighty-five dogs
are owned within the city limits. In
the census all the animals were
classified as to color.
"If 'the'junpald taxes were brought
in, Columbia Vould be $839.50 richer,"
Mr. Jacobs says. "By not paying the
dog.aiia vehicle (ax the owners have
vlola3HL'a city wdinane"e7,"he said.
"They -are eligible to arrest. If Mayor
Boggs will provide me with a de
tailed policeman to execute the war
rants, we will bring all persons
violating these ordinances into the

$1 to $5 fine and have to pay the back
tax to boot.-"
Mayor Boggs said in all probability
a special officer would be detailed
but he was cot sure until he con
ferred with Chief Whitesldes.
The City Clerk's books show, that ap
proximately 452 persons have violated
the ordinances in not paying their
taxes. Following are the figures:
54 automobiles at $2 $108
40 two-horse wagons at $2....--80
30 one-horse wagons at $2 60
64 one-horse buggies at $1.... 64
5 motorcycles at SI . ..." 5
209 dogs at $2.50 522.5b
Total r $839.50
. The peculiar thing about the census,
Mr. Jacobs said, was the number of
buggies discovered. A casual "visit
through the street'of Columbia will
not reveal a dozen buggies. But more
than 125 persons came in and paid
taxes on buggies, which rarely are
used, but remain in barns, relics of the

By Associated Prtss
On the Aslago Plateau the Italians
are straightening out their line gradu

Germans are progressing slightly.
These gains have apparently not
been of great strategic value, and the
aanger of the Piave line heing out

serious enough to cause any changes
in the Italian plans. The Teutonic
pressure between the Sugana Valley
and the Piave is strong, but the
Italians have been able to check
violent attacks at various points along
Fresh Austro-German attempts to
cross the Piave have been rendered
futile before the Italian defense.
The greater portion of the populace

Flood Gates Opened on Enemy.
By Associated Press
ITALIAN HEADQUARTERS IN
NORTHERN ITALY. Nov. 16 The.
flood gates of the Piave and Sile (Old
Piae River) have been opened by
Italian military engineers and the
enemy is now faced by another Yser
The flood was loosed at the point
where the enemy swarmed the Piave
near Grisolria, four miles from the
coast, and the whole region gained is
now under water. The enemy has
been driven back, but was still hold
ing its triangular positions despite the
releasing ot the water from the flood
gates over the low-lying plains.
The chief menace at this point was
that the enemy might be able to ap-
jproach Venice through the lagoon and
l bombard the cuy, ironxa position be
tween the rivers. The inundation
created a barrier of-water twelve miles
wide and several miles deep.
Reports to heaquarters from other
Italian fronts are also favorable.
