THE MANITOWOC PILOT.
VOLUME XLIV.—NO. ]6. WILL CITY HAVE LIBRARY BUILDING? t is in doubt Owing to Action of Council L NEW PHASE OF THE QUESTION .ibrary Board Has Authority to Purchase Site JUT THE CITY COUNCIL MAY BLOCK IT In Ordinance Must be Passed to Meet the Conditions Imposed by Mr. Andrew Carnegie The library site is still emmeshed n dispute and Andrew Carnegie’s offer )f |25,000 is in the balance. The .library board is inflexible in its po rtion fur the Hammernick site while tome of the council members are equal y inexorable for some other site, 'avoring the Burchard property. It has been discovered, however, that be law ewpowers the Library board o select and purchase a site without she aid or by the consent of the city souncil. The board is restricted, how jver, in purchasing the property, to teep within one third of the cost of the milding. The board, then, has the ight to purchase the site but in the :ase of Manitowoc the city council nay block the purchase by refusing to iass an ordinance levying a tax to Hjual 10 per cent, per annum of the jift of Mr. Carnegie which would be &2500. Already a resolution has been idopted by the city council accepting be gift of Mr. Carnegie and the ea (rossed resolution together with the thanks of the city, has been sent to the uagnate. But the law definitely requires an ordinance to be passed to raise the necessary amount of tax and if this is not done Mr. Carnegie will simply recall bis gift. It is hinted that some of the members of the city council have signified their intention of voting against an ordinance. If they do and are able to defeat it, then Manitowoc will not possess a Carnegie library. W. A. WALKER HAS BLOSSOMED INTO A GRAND-DAi, Everyone who met W. A.

REDISTRICTING THE CIRCUIT A Move May Soon be Made for Relief THE INITIATIVE IS NOT TAKEN HERE Reason Why Some Amelioration of Griev ances SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE CIRCUIT Suggestions Made for an Ideal District Fond du Lac May Press the Question. The question of the division of the judicial circuit presided over by the Hon. M. Kirwau is still in abeyance, though it has been said that the bar of Fon du Lac is considering some plans to redistrict several of the circuits for the purpose of relieving the court in this circuit of over pressure of business. The immense amount of litigation, the importance and extent of the counties embraced within the jurisdiction of the presiding judge is admitted every where and it is common belief that some relief should be afforded to this circuit. The bar in this county actually real izes the injustice imposed upon the onrt and this fact is emphasized when a comparison is made with the labors of the courts in the other circuits. Not withstanding that the bar of Manito woc would welcome a satisfactory change in the district, it has not taken the initiative in demanding a remedy. “The bar here’’ said a prominent at torney “stands ready to forward any measure looking to an amelioration of die grievances that we suffer. Wehope for harmonious action to the end that if the district is altered each county may be satisfied. In conjunction with other attorneys in the county I would favor a circuit comprising of the coun ties of Mnnitowoc, Sheboygan and Ke w .anee. Such a circuit would be about the average in size and volume ot liti gation. Fond du Lac has always been agreeable to this county but geographic ally it is so situated as to suggest its connection with another circnit. lam informed that Fond dn Lac bar feels as I do and would be willing to be de tached from this circuit, if provisions of a satisfactory nature could be made for its future.” MANITOWOC TEACHERS MAY GO TO PHILLIPINES TO TEACH CHILDREN Miss Julia Matek and Miss Helen Heise, Southside teachers have been offered positions by the government, to teach in the schools of the Phillipine islands. The young ladies would lie obliged to make a contract covering three years and their compensation would be SHO a month. Both young lathes have the offer under advisement and will reach a decision in the course of a few days. The position while lucrative, entails some disadvantages and the latter may outweigh the for mer when a decision comes to be made. The government is making an active campaign for teachers for work in the Phillipines.

SATISFACTORY ASSESSMENT Supervisor W. C. Maertz Says He is Gratified AT THE MANY COMMENTS HE HEARS Taxpayers are Glad to Stand by His Figures THOUGH THERE ARE SOME KICKERS He Goes to Madison to Consult With the State Tax Commission Meeting in April W. C. Maertz, county supervising assessor wan in the city on Tuesday and he stated, that he is about to begin his annual assessment of property. He is at present preparing papers for sub mission to the tax commission, who will meet with the supervising assessors at an annual meeting to be held in Madison on Feb. 2*5. The purpose of this meeting is to make comparisons of the assessment* in all the counties of the state ami to devise further means for instiling a full valuation of all taxable property. In a few words Mr. Maertz said that ho found the opinion, generally prevel ent, that his assessment last year was eminently satisfactory. At first,” said Mr. Maertz, ' there were kickers but after the people Itegan to pay taxes they were satisfied that a full valuation of property is the right method of taxation. In some towns the property owners have hail to pay leas taxes than when the as sessment was within 50 cent of the true valuation, and in other cases they have hail to pay in excess of other years. Bnt taking the prevailing opin ion as a ha-os of judgment 1 can safely say my assessment has given satis faction.” It is the intention of Mr. Maertz to call the assessors of the towns and cities of the county together in April and at that time discuss the pi in to be pursued in the summer in arriving at valu ations.
