ASSESSMENT AT FULL VALUE
If theta woro any guarantee that tho tax rate would
Remain fixed at 145 OB proposed thoro would bo no occa
rl icon for apprehension over the fullvaluo assessment of
teal estate At this rate tho tax bllla for most property
AI holders would be smaller than at tho present rato of 227
cat ton tho old valuation
example where Mr Depow paid taxes of J1920CO
1 last year on his rosldonco at an assessed valuation of
P S5000 his tax bill for tho current year on an assessment
J oJ 120004 would bo only 1740 Mrs Henry C Potters
t would be reduced from 624260 to 5800 and other house
rat holders would faro equally well In proportion They
could also Indulge the pleasing but deluslvo belief that a
stroke of tho tax assessors pen had added to tho value
of their property
But aa addition o this rato as slight as onesixth of
ono per cent would make Mr Dcpowe bill larger than it
u was last year That la to say airato of J1G3 would maka
e htst1111936 < and < tho > 0ld rnto of 227 would incroaso It
to 42724
It la the possibility not to eay tho high probability of
such on addition that creates apprehension Tho now
measure la admittedly not designed to enable tho city to
economize It Is for the purposo of giving It opportunity
and legal permission by extending the dot limit to
spend moro money We know how this kind of thing
works with an individual and wo know how it will work
With an incorporated community of Individuals So far
from there being any cuarantco that tiht tax rate will re
main low thero is every likelihood that it will gradually
return to the old figure Whore there Is tho desire to
spend thoro is tho means for the gratification of It and
tho doslro Is always present with the executive ofllaitUs
ot this city for extravagance
ti Already as by this mornings news we have the
Mayor planning for a hugo public building and an ad
ministration echom0 to use the 140000000 added to tho
debt limit With the money in Bight thoro Li to be no
delay in making preparations to spend it
Does tho rentpayer realize how ho will eventually be
called on to benT tho burden of an Increased rato When
the landlords taxes grow heavier be will look for higher
rents from his tenants Tho appreciation of Tents from
j other causes within tho past decade has been all out of
proportion to the increase of property values The pros
jiqct of any addition may well bo viewed with alarm by
tho tenant Has Ills salary or Income Increased to oorrc

A WEST SIDE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE
The formation of a Commlttco of One Hundred on the
west side to take on active interest in the present aglta =
+ ton for improved car service is Important because this
association of clt > ena is to all intents and purposes us
much a vlgllancn committee as that which kept order in
lawless San Francisco half a century ago It Is formed
to safeguard tho travelling public from imposition at tho
hands of a traction company and tho wonder Is that ita
existence should be necessary in a highly civilised com
rr f munity Yet remermbcrlniT that thoro would now ho four
fear tracks on crowded Amsterdam avenue but for the pro
vcntlvo efforts of a clmllar committee two years ago we
t know that there is plenty of work cut out for it
a The formation of such committees is made necessary
IIY the traction managers theory that no concussions are
to bo made to patrons except in response to urgent popu
lar demand It Is a mistaken theory Was not the Im
proved service on tho west side lines of tho elevated as
I y feasible before public pressure was brought to bear as
r after Where the comfort or convenience of a roods
patrons points tho way for Improvement tho Improvement
is bound to come the sooner tho road yields to tho In
ovltablo the better for Its standing with tho public
Thero is an abundance of traction reforms for this
committee to put its hand to Tho service on tho Broad
1 voy and Seventh avenue line is sadly inadequate No
provision Is made for the theatregoing crowd in tho early
evening or for church passengers on Sunday mornings
there is not even ctandlng room In tho cars at such times
i and they arc run at infrequent intervals
The service of the Eightysixth street crosstown line
also is audh as few villages have to put up with Old
foulumolllng cars lighted dimly by oil lamps arc an I
i anachronism in Now York Mr Vreeland has said that
i within a month after right of way is secured from one
block of Eightysixth street property owners ho will have
a crosstown electric line through this street from river
Ito river In exchange for that remote luxury a long
1 Buttering public will bo willing to accept a slight present
i improvement
These and numerous other changes for tho better the
west side commltteo can affect by force of agitation and
pnWlclty and The Evening World wishes them well of
R i their endeavors

For anybody else replied the Man Higher Up ttu
would havo been like extracting the teeth from a ben
For Gates it was like taking flowers from a grave II
Gates bs made a lot of easy money In his time but I
this fall he took out ofBolmont and Morgan for 100001
000 and a aide bet of a couple of million more was simply i
an exhibition bout Ho couldnt do it again If ho trained
tor five yearn >
Not that Gates Isnt as wise now as ho was wtiea
ho pulled off his assault on die Morgan bankroll but
thero ago no more opportunities as juicy as tho ono that
he picked up that time Thero isnt anything left that
Morgan doesnt own
Gates got In on the L N the way a wise second
tory man gets into a plant The eecond story man
goes in while the family Is at dinner Gates went In
while Morgan was at tho hot baths in Germany
Morgan went to Europe to get boiled out He took
the mud baths and the soda water baths and the Ink
batha and the other tortures they put to a man over
there When he wasnt doing this he was getting the I
I
Xrays flashed onto himself Delmont was keeping cases
on the race track and enJoylngMiImself on his yacht
Gatea looked over the field took off his coat rolled
down his suspenders spat on hIs hands 4nd got busy
not course Morgan had his men here to look out for
his bit Theso men had Instructions to keep their lamps
on the business graft and cable him when they thought i
somebody was going to turn a trick The Morgan look
outs thought they had tho board covered but they
didnt know that John W Gates had bought a stack and
declared himself in
They let his modest pile of chips set and paid no at
tontlon them As a matter of fact they thought Gates
was a comoon and they were simply waiting for him
to lose his pile and get out of the game Gates had an
Advantage there Nobody took him seriously in the Wall I
street gambling business 11
He had stung them a few times but they thought t
it was luCk They couldnt understand his waye and
figured that when ho went outJJ fter anything bo would
go with a brass band a calliope a siren whistle end a
steam printing office to Issue bulletins every hour in
Wall street they think that every man who cornea lust
of the West works on a pressure Of 95 per cent wind And >
G per cent brains iI
Right there Is where John W Ohloagood them Ha
put on his gum shoos loaded up his electric dark l
and started out through tho back alleys In tho > mean r
time he left Ids son Charley and tatspartner Drake to
stand down in Wall street and holler an loud aa the
I
could every day from 9 to 3
The stall worked The wise young men in Morgans
office looked out the window and saw Charley Gates and
Drake hollering until they rworoblue In the face Then l
tho wise young men lit fresh cigarettes and remarkod I 1
haw utterly ridiculous those Western fell aft s Brfldontl

About the time Oharley and Drake were beginning
to think of the oxygen treatment for lost breath John

next day he put on his store clothes walked over to
Morgans office and spread the swag out on the table v

It Mont Poise had exploded that day the world
would never have known about It The explosion ot

could do was produce >
Do you think Morgan will ever get back at Gates

Not unless Gates submits to the administration of
