City Council Recedes From Stand
On Dog Tax Ques
tion. CITIZENS ABE HEARD IN PEOTEST
Instead of Ratalng the Bat as Pro
posed a Reduction is
Wordy discussions were eliminated
in the city council last evening and
business went through with unusual
celerity. The republican aldermen,
especially from some of the upper
wards, were slow In assembling and
some of them felt constrained to
leave, before the meeting was over.
There was an undercurrent of polit
ical excitement manifested ' through
out the meeting and. even Mayor
Knox appeared abstracted.
Politics evidently had something to
do with the disposition made of the
dog tax question, for when it bee a trie
perfectly plain -that the raise in'-ca-nine
taxes proposed with the revision
of the ordinances was not a popular
move the members lost no time in
getting under cover, reducing the tax
not only to where it was lKfore, but
cutting even that in two. It was no
ticeable that those whose terms are
about to expire were the ones that
made and seconded the motions for
Lobby is SacceMfoL
TJ. R. Reynolds and .T. A. Togsdon
led the lobby sent by the dog fanciers
to labor with the. council. Mr. I,ogs
don spoke and contended that a tax
of $3 a year for a canine of the male
persuasion kept to act as "policeman"
and general utility animaabout the
place was exorbitant, especially since
the. state adkled its tax of $1 a year
in addition. He held that it was an
arbitrary tax equivalent to that upon
several hundred dollars' w orth of per
sonal property; that it in effect de
clared the dog a nuisance without an
examination of the individual merits
of the animals and it was therefore
unconstitutional. Mr. Txigsdon aver
red that he would make a test case
of it if necessary and would in all
probability knock not only the tax
that he felt to be exorbitant, but all
kinds and degrees of dog tax except
according to the valuation of the'ani
tnals. However, he was willing to pay
a fair tax:
Mr. Reynold took the ground that
the high tax proposed will merely
saddle an additional burden upon the
honest owner who as a rule has a dog
that is not a nuisance, while the par
ty owning the irresponsible cur will
continue to get out of paying all
forms of tax just as he does at pres
ent. He was in favor of a reduction
of the tax and then- seeing to it tha.J:,
all dogs that were not paid for ae
crdincr to law should forfeit their
lives. The gentlemen who spoke were
backed by a number of dog owners
in the gallery and by a lengthy peti
tion which Aid. McCaskrin brought
before the council.
Take 1'ronupt Action.
Aid. McCaskrin pleaded for "the
plain people" and moved that the tax
be fixed at ?1 a year for male and $2
a year for female dogs, according to
the spirit of the petition he present
ed. Aid. Kennedy as a substitute
moved to lix the tax as it was before,
$2 for male and $3 for female canines.
The substitute lost on an aye and nay
vote and the original motion then
carried almost unanimously. The dog
question being brought up in the con
sideration of the revision of the ordi
nances and the council having failed
to get . through with the work so that
they could be finally adopted,, it is not
yet a law, but there is no danger that
it will be changed.
Aid. McCaskrin brought in u peti
tion for the paving of Seventeenth
street from the south lineA of Ninth
avenue to Eighteenth avenue with
single course brick. The petition bore
the signatures of considerably over
the requisite majority of frontage

Upon the representation of Mayor
Knox that the property owners on

and Twelfth avenues, where the con

pave with brick in ease the asphalt
ordinance is repealed, the council in

terms of the ordinance. This being
done, the ordinance will then be dis

NO CHANGE IN THIS
YEAR'S BASEBALL RULES
Some of the baseball fans are puz
zled by the newspaper talk about the
changes in the rules for this season.
-Strictly speaking Ihere has been no
change. In the peace pact between
the American and the National it was
agreed that the rules shoul 1 be uni
form and the former agreed to ac
cept -the foul strike rule which has
been in force in the National league
for the past three years. Prior to this
the American league has not used this
rule. The Three-Eye league has al
ways played under the National rules
and consequently used the foul strike
rule, and there will be no change
this year.The only other rule changed
does not effect the playing of the
game, but it is in relation to the
grounds. It provides that the first
and third base lines must be level and
that the pitcher's box shall not be
over fifteen inches higher than this
level. It will not be necessary for
fandom to add to its stock of
knowledge in order to enjoy the game
