PI.ANS FOR THE BUILDINGS ON THE FORT RILUT,
Capt. Geo. K. Pond, of the Quartermaster's De
partment, this morning presented to Gen. Sheri
dan for consideration extensive plans for the pro
poscd cavalry and artillery post at Fort Riley,
Kansas, and they wero at once approved. The
mint ary reservation at Fort Riley is the largest,
so fur as available territory Is concerned, in the
country, and it is proposed to station there a
whole regiment of cavalry and five batteries of light
artillery. The reservation consists ot 31,000 acres
and is nearly ten miles in length, and of irregular
shape. The artillery will have an unbounded
field for practice, as nearly the entire field Is a
level plain. The post will be commanded by Gen.
J. W. Forsyth, ot the 4th cavalry, and CoL WU
ilston, of the 3d artillery, will be in command of
the artillery to be stationed there. The cavalry
portion otthe post Is separated from the artillery
by a narrow ravine, up one side of which a branch
of the Kansas Paciflc Railroad will be run. Several
other railroads are accessible, so that troops can
be dispatched In any direction from Fort BUey
better than from any other post. Besides supplies
are cheaper here than any place else. The plana
approved by Gen. Sheridan to-day contemplate
laying out the cavalry and artillery barracks and
otner buildings at such aa angle to each other
that the quarters ot the commanding officer will
be located midway between the two dlvlslooaof
the pout. Thirty-six officers' quarters will be
erected fronting on aa avenue extending toward
the cavalry barracks, which will be so located as
to' give an admirable parade ground for the
cavalry. In the rear will he the itsbles. The
artillery buildings will be ready for occupancy
next fall. It Is expected that Congress wul ap
propriate additional funds f?r prosecuting the
work on the baUdiaga,

THE CLOSING EVENTS LAST WEEK AT ITT OtTT.
The week s racing at Ivy city closed Saturday
with several good races. Telle Doe added to her
laurels by winning two races, one within an hour
the other. There was a good deal of dissatisfac
tion at one or two of the starts. This was particu
larly the case as to the race won by Patrocles, and
Starter Caldwell was severely criticised. It was
charged that he let Patrocles off in front far
enough to give him the race.
In the fourth race, the second event of the day
won by Telle Doe, Olenmound came second. Ban

THE WATKH-ntl* TAX.
An Opinion fcy Attorney Riddle.
The District Commissioners have received from
Attorney liiddle a communication in which he
"I am in receipt of a bundle of cases burdened
with the water-main tax?a special assessment?
and these turning upon the question. Must the as
sessment be made within thirty days from the
completion of a given work and immediate notice
given to the property-owners? I had Indorsed one
or two cases where cancellation of a tax was
claimed for laches by the District In these respects,
with adverse recommendations. These I And In
the present lot, an indication that a more thorough
treatment of the question lsdeslred. Substantially
this question arose in McDonald vs. LlltleDcld. and
the Oeneral Term divided It against my view.
That was an assessment for the improvement of
streets under the 37th section, act 01 February ai,
and the act of August 10,1N71."
Tills act Mr. Kiddle quotes also, the act of the
legislative assembly of August 10, 1871, and says:
"Now, the claim was, and so the court decided,
that within ten days of this apportionment to a
given lot. not Ice must be given to the owner, or
the lot escapes Its portion of the burden. This
not ice wit hln t he ten days is a condition pns-edent,
falling which, the lot is exempt; that while a law
exempting property Is strict ty construed to pre
vent an exemption, the law is liberally construed
to work an exemption everywhere else. It Is said
tula provision of assessment and notice Is manda
tory aud must be strictly compiled with. Why Is
It mandatoiy? How are we to know a mandatory
provision? I know or nothing more wavering and
uncertain than the line dividing tulugs mandatory
and things directory, in statutes, courts seem to
hold tnelii one or the ot her, as they Incline to one
or the otuer side of doubtful canes. There are
abundance ot authorities, but hone lays down *
rule of easy application to all cases."
After quoting certain autuurltles Mr. Kiddle con
"luder these authorities we may say that all of
the provisions ol the law which may ue claimed to
protect the rights of the taxpayer must Decom
piled with by tue municipality. 1 Ills Is theruie.

District does not lose its right to charge property
by reason ot a demy in making an assessment and
giving notice, where owuersulp Is not changed
"iue essential things for the protection of the
Intended tai payer and which he can insist upon
are: The malu must be laid according to law. The
actual honest cost ascertained, mis must oe
Justly apportioned to all the property legally

law directs, lie must have notice. All these.
Vet whether this JUst assessment, and actual
notice, are wit uln thirty days or thirty months, so
loug as no shadow ot liability can be piojected

"I miuK, however, thai where work has been
completed and abutting proi>eriy sold after a lapse

cate or the collector of no water tax, the purchaser
would ta*e It lice. The District loses. 1 do not
see any very direct provision of law anywhere
that a wster tax becomes a lien, or that property
can be sold for its non-payment. All that stvuis
