Pittsburg, Dec. 6 Early this morning fire destroyed the pretty Klee" residence, near-Carnegie. t The fire was discovered by a passer-by before the family were awake. The flames started down stairs and shut off the mother and seven children. . When rthe father awakened he saw the only way to save the children was to drop them from the window to the ground, twenty-five feet below. Klee and his wife gathered the seven youngsters and dropped them one by one.' Some of thelittle ones were burned badly, -and others were seriously injured by the fall. Mary, one of the youngest, tried to get out of a window in an adjoining room just as her father was dropping the sixth baby to the ground- The flames by this time were, roaring around them. He looked for his wife at his side and not finding her rushed into the fire, but was driven back, by the firemen who had mounted ladders, and pulled him out. Mr. Klee : was" almost distracte'd by the loss 'of hisrwife.andchlfd. Ihe mother had eone-'af ter. . Marv. Both were burned to death, found this afternoon. Two cover. The house was totally THE TAX CASES OPENED THURSDAY From the Prospector of Thursday "evening we copy the following report of court proceeding's: At the opening of the court at 9:30 a. m. Judge Davis announced that the tax cases would be taken up out of their order; but subject to this change the other cases would be taken up iu order. - The certiorari case of the Common wealth M. & M. Co. vs. Cochise county; was first taken up. Judge HcFarland of Solomonvllle, was entered as counsel for defendant. Messrs. Land, district attorney; English, Bowman and Mc Farland appeared for the county, and Senator Ives appeared for the plaintiff Plaintiff moved that an amended re turn be sent up adding certain words claimed to be material; by pla'-Miff which were omitted from the regular return. After argument the court or dered the amendment to be made as asked for in the motion. Clerk Dun can brought in the original assessment roll tor 1001, and made the correction required by the order. The case was submitted then upon the petition and return as amended. Argument then proceeded, being opened by Mr. Ives, who stated that the only items to which the plaintiff objected were the two, "Silver Wave mining claim, $200,000, five other claims $50,000." The contention of plaintiff was that the board had no jurisdiction to rase the valuation of the foregoing property, for the reason that no notice was given to the plaintiff except that given by the board to the effect that said board proposed"to raise the valu ation of the Commonwealth mine' $1,- OCO.000." Mr. Ives anrued that that notice gave the board no right to as sess "five other miningcIalmstSO.OOO." or any other property tnan that men tioned in the notice. He said the de scription, "five other mining claims." was not such a description as would en able the territory to make a good tar deed in case of sale; although the de scription employed was that returned by the Commonwealth company to the assessor. Mr. Brockman appeared before the board on July 18. .On July 20 .the board made the raises complained of, and plaintiff claimed no notice was given of the raises actually made, before tbey were made, as the y-wero made two days after the hearing, and no notice, .but that of final action was given, other than the notice of proposal to raise the valuation of the Commonwealth mine $1,000,000." Mr. Ives contended that the boardj bad no right to add any property; but it was Its duty to instruct the assessor , to add any property not included In the taxpayer's return., Minnesota Will fight. ; Hay-Paunccforte Treaty.

In the amended return it was ad mitted that new property was added by the board. Objection was made by Mr. Ivr s that the description, "mining claims" did not include mines; "mines" were pat ented locations, claims were unpaten ted locations. The, property of the Commonwealth mines are patented. ' - Judge McFarland opened the argu ment for the county. He contended that when It is shown that the Board of Equalization has jurisdiction, its actions were as conclusive as would be the action of the district court actijg on a matter within Its jurisdiction The only question he said was, ''Did the the board act within Its authority?" The court could not substitute its judgment for that' of the board, to which the law gives exc uslve jurisdic tion in tax matters. .The function of the court id only to correct errors of jurisdiction. Appeal from the action of the .board not being given by statute, there U no remedy by certiorari, ex cept where the board has exceeded its jurisdiction. The court asked whether the plaintiff had notice of any proposed action other than that mentioned in the notice. Mr. McFarland contend d that all the matters which could have been determined in the hearing are res adjudicata whether as they were actually so determined or not. Issue before this court is not what descrip tion would pass a title, but whether the beard had the power to make the raise complained of. Unless it affir matively appears from the retnrn of the proceedings of the board, that it acted without knowledge or evidence in making said raises, their record is con clusive that tbey acted upon knowl edge and evidence. No errors within jurisdiction of the board can be re ceived on certiorari. Board was not required to give notice concerning any specific property, but only to give no tice that valuations wonld be raised of the property listed by plaintiff. The Board of Equalization is the only tri bunal under the laws.of Arizona which has a right to pass on the values of properly in assessment for taxes. Attorney English follows In. the ar gument on behalf of the county and was making his argument as we go to press.
