Commissioners of Appeals Held Their Last Regular Meeting Last Night. MANY W PRESENT. Little Reduc'ion] on Arnold Property—To Tax Bruen Land—Will] Hold Special Meeting or Dec. 28th-A Few Correc tions Made in the Poll Tax List—Many Disappointed. The Commissioners of Appeal met last night in the Citv Hall tor the last time. The attendance was very large. ThiB year the Commissioners’ work hns been watched with keener interest than for many years. Claims for ad . jnstment literally! ponred in upon them. In all 425 were presented. The expectation was tnat a wholesale re duction would be made in the work of the assessors. Tne commissioners, however, made few corrections in the assessors’ work. A nnmber of emnl! errors in poll tay were repaired and about 81) claims of personal tax re ceived adjustment. The largest was for $1,500 about $25.65. This is quite different from what tho owners songht. Mr. Arnold asked alone for n reduction of $50,000 on a number of lots in the undeveloped parts of the city. They were assessed at some $72,000. He claimed thev were worth only $20,000. Some lots had a reduc tion of 44 cents tax and others less. Other large claims received similar consideration. A special meeting will bo held on December 28 to consider the assessment of the Westminster. This matter has been ditenssed the last two meetings of the commission ers. Last night it was decided to IioTd a meeting on the 28th of the month, in order that tho Brnon people might have snflioieut notice ana conld raise any objections if they so desired. It is proposed to tax the estate at $10,000 which would make $708. Tins . proposed tax action is on the grounds that during the year 1902 the proporty changed hands and was therefore not entitl°d to exemption in 1903.

Organ Recital at the Presbyter ian Chinch Last Night Thoroughly Enj.iyed. ARTISTS WELL RECEIVED Dr. Smith a Musician of Rare Talent Somewhat Handicapped as Organ was not Completed—Mr. Rcetl Miilers Sing ing Took the Audier.ce by Storm-Re ceived Hearly Applause. The inaagnrnl organ recital of the Presbvterian church took place last night. Gerrit Smith, Doctor of Music, Organist of the South Clinrch, New York, gave a grand recital. Ho was assisted by Mr. Reed Miller, tenor soloist of the Calvary M. E. ehnrch, New Y'ork. The program was presented in a most scholarly manner without any apparent striving for effeot. The selections, some from the groat masters, were presented iu a scholarly manner and were inter preted with power,rgreat beauty and delicate expression. Dr. Smith dis played superior technique and de serves praise for his commendable work. Mr. Miller has a most perfect voice. His rendering of solos were so well received by the nudieuce that at one time an involuntary applause was begun. The organ is not yet completed. Several stops have not yet been put in and Dr. Smith was a trifle handi capped in his work. The air, which is supplied by water power, gave out once or twice, as the pressure was not sufficiently great. This was remedied later in the evening. The audience xvus large ami a dis tinctly music admiriug crowd. Some of the selections rendered are rareiy excelled. The new organ, used for the first time last night, is a very fine instru ment and will no doubt be much en joyed by the congregation in the future. It was built by Kimball & Co., of Chicago.
