Fifty-one! fudge we turned that trick long ago. The average commercial club de votes too much attention to rain-bow chasing. If the members would steer clear of theories aod the desire to do too much, and devote their energies to the matter of protecting industries already started in their towns the results would be more telling and the clubs of longer life. The Press is hard pushed these days for reliable competent help, and failing eyesight on the part of the head of the institution which prohibits close application. The former difficulty will soon be rem edied and the latter in time ’tis hoped. Pickpockets were in evidence at the farmers’ meeting at Washburn Tuesday. One of Bayfield’s citizens was touched for a small amount and others for gold watches and diamond studs. Hully Gee! Diamonds on a farmer.

A Taxpayer of the Town of Wash burn Expresses His Views Considering it my duty to bring certaiu undisputed facts to the knowledge of the electors of the town of Washburn, I ask of you to kindly allow me space in your valuable paper, for the reason that, at a caucus held in this town on the 9th inst., I was denied the privilege to make the following statements, to-wit: That the assessment of 1905 is in certain most vital points as faulty as the assessment of 1904, which has been pronounced illegal, for the reason: The willful omission from the roll of personal property as well as real estate, also the undervalua tion of’timber lauds and cut over lauds now held by large corporations which undervaluations and omissions have decreased the assessment roll of 1904 about $300,000 and conse quently increased the rate of taxes to ail the rest of taxpayers about 40 to 45 per cent, and caused litigation which also was a large expense to the taxpayers. While in the tax roll of 1905 the omission and undervaluations are not quite so large, still they are large enough to force some of the taxpayers again to go t) law, in order to compel tbe town to give the property owners as fair and equal assessment, for instance if all the farmers were assessed the way the Hmes Lumber Cos, is, each and 'every farmer’s valuation would be reduced about 30 to 35 per cent. In the town caucus of the 9th, the party who stated that the ommis sions from the assessment roll amounted only to about SIO,OOO needs a little refreshing of the memory, for instance for the Hines Lumber Cos. alone to 126 horses not assessed at all 431 million of stand ing timber underassessed as per records in court, makes for this corporation alone an omission from the assessment roll of about SIBO,OOO W T hile there are a good many im portant facts yet, which I would like to call the taxpayer’s attention to, I hardly think it right to occupy more space in your valuable publi cation. For equal and just taxation and economical town government. A Taxpayer. W. Landraint. BARNES G. S. Barnes went to St. Paul on business. James Smith of Iron River, was out ou business during the week.

Secretary Fairail Says that he had not learned the real reason why that man Leßoy, at Webster City, lowa, was so sore at the management of the “Grassland” until he visited Ashland a few days ago. It seems that an Ashland gentleman was with Mr, Fairail on board the Grass land for a few weeks, and one day when Mr. Fairail was busy in the office and the Ashland man was looking after guests at the other end of the car, in walked Leßoy with a lot of circulars advertising western lands and he had the nerve to commence passing these circulars around among the visitors.
