Last year there was an exemp

occupied by the owner. The last
legislature removed this exemp

on the treasurer you will find your
taxes higher if the valuation on
your property remained the same.
In the city of Baraboo the rate is
three per cent and those living
in their own homes will find their

Miners Reject
Markle Plan To
End Coal Strike
New York A new peace plan to
end the anthracite strike was pre
sented to the anthracite miners
and operators Tuesday, and like
all the others, it. proved unsatisfac
tcry to one side.
The latest propostition came
from Alwan Markle of Hazelton,
Pa., chairman without vote of the
joint wage conference of operators
and miners. Mr. Markle is a min
ority stockholder in the Jeddo-
Highland Coal company.
Whether his plan was acceptable
to the operators was not made
known, but the miners promptly
voiced their opposition because it
contained what they termed an ar
bitration feature.
Opposed to Arbitration
In an agreed statement, issued
by both sides it was announced
that the workers “were as much
opposed to arbitration today as
they were four months ago, and
will continue in their opposition.”
Tonight the joint conference
was still in session, going over the
various plans that were offered by
different interests since the strike
began Sept. 1.
The proposal made by Gov. Pin
cliot at Harrisburg a month ago
and rejected by the operators was
urged by the. miners as “a con
structive plan for settlement.”
The operators, however, would not
listen to its adoption, arguing that
it was “destructive and unwork
