A Bid for a Big Bulidaag-A guarter
Million Dollars Offered in Insuraoae,
Mr. James Haven left for New York
this aftternoon after a visit during which
he did considerable business and pre
pared plans for large trapsactions.
Mr. Haven is convinced that the Equi
table Insurance company, one of the
greatest corporations In the world, may
erect a large building here on receiving
due encouragement. Accordingly he
has consulted leading citizens and goes to.
New York with $290,000 pledged. That
is the citizens of Great Falls agree to
take insurance to the amount of $290,
000 provided the company undertakes to
erect a building here like those which
it has constructed elsewhere.
Twelve citizens promise to take poli
eles for $15,000 each. Thirteen will take
policies of $5,000 each.
Mr. Haven, very liberally, agrees that
any commission accruing from the trans
action shall be devoted to the public
good in Great Falls.
meaos Changes In the law IRelati to
As the assessor has commenced his
annual round among the people, the
changes in the revenue law, under the
constitution, will be of general Interest.
One of the important innovations, and
an excellent one, is the creation of the
state board of equalization. The gover
nor, secretary of state, state treasurer,
state auditor and attorney general consti
tute the board. They have organized as
a board and published their rules and
regulations for the information of the
officers and people of the state.
The duty of the state board of equall
zation, according to the constitution, is
to adjust and equalize the valuation of
taxable property among the several
counties of the state; the duty of the
county boards of equalization is to adjust
and equalize the valuation of taxable I
property within their respective counties.
For example, it will be the duty of the
state board to see that a lke kind of
stock is not assessed at a higher rate in h
Cascade than it Is In Choteau county.
Railroad assessment Is wholly under the t
control of the state board. A county f
board of equalization has no authority to a
uhange any assessment made by the state ti
hoard. a
The reveune law as amended March ri
16th, 1889, providing that "the property d
owned by each individual on the let day e
of April of each year shall be listed and
assessed" is repealed by the constitution. h
The assessor may now list and assess pro- T
pert) found at any time up to the close C
of the assessment year. 1
The exemption in section 11 of the i
revenue law of the Fifteenth Ex. Y'
traordinary Session, provides that" In 0I
making up the amount of credits which ni
any person is required to list, he will be a4
untitled to deduct from the gross amount,
the amount of all bona fide debts owing Pg
by him," has been repealed by the con
stitution, h
Important changes havebeen made in in
the law relating to the assessment of

tions, Assessors will assess all property
of any character, including the franchIse,

Yesterday afternoon Charles McGeady
was driving in a buggyaccross the wagon
bridge when about half way across one
of the horses became restletii 'Mr.
McGeady made a strong effort to ebdtrol
him and hurt his hands severely ih doing
so. In a few moments both horse be
came unmanageable and broke away
from the buggy which fell to pieces
throwing out Mr. Mcteady and Mrs.
Tillie Sheridan. People came promptly
to their asslsttsce and tound that Mr.
McGeady had received severe injuries on
the head. Mrs. Sheridan's 'ar was
broken below the elbow. Dr. Newman
rendered surgical aid to both and they
are making fair progress. The hones
kept running as far as Black Eagle falls
where they were stopped. There was a
wagon on the west side of the bridge at
the time of the accident, but the horses
kept clear of it in their wild canter. It
is supposed that the stringer in the
bridge startled the first horse that be
came unruly, but there is no reason why
it did not do so at the outset as well s
in the middle of the bridge. As in mast
run-a-way accidents, the cause will al.
ways be in doubt. The buggy and team
were from the Eclipse stable.
