FREELAND, PA., AUGUST 30, 1897. Another Legislative Blunder. From the Philadelphia Press. Wo are informed by tlio Pottsvillo Republican that tlio Republican conven tion of Schuylkill county not only en dorsed Judge Bechtol for re-election, but formally nominated him exactly as it did other candidates on the ticket. Some of the news reports at that time of the convention left this matter rather uncertain, but it has been made very plain by our contemporary. Judge Bechtel has now been nominat ed by both the Republicans and tin- Democrats in regular convention, and as a matter of course his nomination will he certified to the state department by each party. As recent amendments to the ballot act declare that a name shall go on the ballot only once by certificate of nominations, it will be rather Interesting to see which party is going to suffer the brushing aside of its regularly nominated candidate for judge under the ridiculous provision. We presume the first guess at this rests with the state department, hut we guess ► that the last guess will ho made by the courts. If this provision of the amendments made "to euro all the defects in the bal lot law" can be enforced, then one party in Schuylkill will have no candidate for judge, although one has been nominat ed. All this was done in an effort to prevent the enactment of amendments which would have made the ballot com pact and convenient, upon which tin; names of all candidates could appear with their proper party designations whether nominated by one party or half a dozen parties. Nothing more outrageous has recently happened, and it will bo a good thing if the complications arising in Schuylkill serve to bring the question before tin courts for an early opinion. Naturally that will happen if the certificate of Judge Bechtel's nomination by the Re publicans should be first filed. Under such circumstances the name of Judge Rochtol would be left off the ticket, and as ho is a Democrat his party would not b- likely to let the matter rest there. They would want the court to determine whether they have a right to put the name of their regularly nominated can didate on the official ballot or not. Alien Tax I.aw In Not Legal. Judge M. W. Acheson, of the United States circuit court, handed down an opinion at Pittsburg Thursday morning declaring the alien tax law unconstitu tional. The decision was made in the test suit of John Frazer, an English subject. In making his ruling, Judge Acheson said in part: "As the employer is authorized by the act to deduct from the wages of the em ploye the prescribed tax, it is quite clear that the tax is upon the employe and not upon the employer. The court is here called upon to consider whether those provisions of this act of assembly are in conflict with the constitution and laws of the United States. "The fourteenth amendment,, in de claring that no state shall deprive any person of life, liberty or property, with out due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, undoubtedly in tended not only that there should hi- no arbitrary spoliation of property, but that equal protection and security should be given to all under like circum stances. "There can he no doubt that the four teenth amendment (unbraces the case of the present plaintiff, who, since about April 27, 1893, has been a resident of the state, and whose right to reside within the United States is secured to him by treaty between the United States and Great Britain. Can the tax laid by ; the Pennsylvania act of June 15, 1897, ■ he sustained consistently with the princi- I pie enunciated by the supreme court of the United States In tins cases which j have arisen under the fourteenth amend- j menu.' i think not," THE NEW ASSESSMENT. Will It Compel Owners of Coal I.and to l'uy a Fair Share of Local Taxes? "Inkborn" in Wilkesbarre Telephone. Within the next four months the county commissioners must, in compli ance witli law, agree upon a fixed rate of property valuation for the triennial assessment. Whatever that rate may be the law prescribes that it shall cover a period of three years as a basis of tax ation on all kinds of taxable property. For the guidance of county commission ers the law declares that all taxable property must be assessed at such a valu ation as it would sell for if exposed to public sale, after due notice having been given of the purpose to sell. In other words the clear intent of the law is that property must be assessed at its actual value. In order that no injustice shall l)o done if any piece of property has been assessed at more than its full and fair value the commissioners have the power to reduce the assessment, which must be done in all cases of excessive taxation. Thus it will be seen that the law prescribes a remedy by which no taxpayer can be compelled to bear more than his proportionate share of the burden of general or local taxation. But while the law continues to- be utterly disregarded by local assessors and com missioners whose sworn duty is to see that it is faithfully executed, inequali ties in taxation will continue to In; a source of raiik injustice to farmers and wage-earners who are the least able to bear tlio burden. Now, as the time is at hand when the triennial assessment must be made, it would seem to be the duty of the present board of county commissioners to at once preparo to correct the abuses imposed upon taxpayers for many years by their predecessors. No one can deny that the owners of small homes in every city, town and township, and every farmer and wngo-worker throughout the coun try, are today paying more than their share of taxes for municipal, school and township purposes, as compared with amounts of taxes paid by owners of coal land and other property. The gross in justice that has prevailed in this respect has been repeatedly exposed in this column. The people are thoroughly aroused, and unless the evils complained of are to be in some measure remedied it will become tlio duty of any protesting taxpayer to appeal to the grand jury to indict tlie assessors or county commis sioners who shall wilfully disregard their oath of office or persist in violating the law. If evidence were needed to prove that a majority of the local assessors in this county have not complied with the law an investigation of their returns for the past three years would most assuredly condemn them. In fact, as a rule, there has been no uniformity observed by tlio local assessors so far as I can learn in assessing tax on any kind of property. If some of them are to lie believed it seems the tax rate has hitherto been generally fixed by the county commis sioners regardless of the assessed valua tion. Real estate, such as borough lots and city lots without buildings or im provements, are generally assessed at about one-fourth the original value. But to show the unequal and unjust method of assessment on that kind of property as it stands today I may merely state a few facts that have come to my personal knowledge during the discus sion of tills question. In the boroughs of Kingston, Dor ranceton, Forty Fort, Luzerne and Ed wardsville, there arc? many vacant plots of valuable coal land laid out into town lots ranging in siza from 40x100 t050x120 feet. On a plot of tliis kind in Kingston the lots fronting on two of the most ob scure streets in the borough are offered for sale at from 01,000 to 01,300. The plot referred to is assessed as farm land on a valuation of less than 0100 per acre, notwithstanding the fact that the un derlying coal vein, about twenty-six feet in thickness, pays the owners a royalty of 35 cents per ton. Take the plot upon which the town of Westmoreland lias been built up within the past two years. It is safe to say that tlio owners of homes in that section of Dorranccton borough are assessed at fully one-fourth the actual value of their property, and in the aggregate they have paid, within the past year more taxes for county, school and borough purposes than has been assessed against that valuable plot of coal land in the past ten years. I could go on and multiply examples of tliis kind to show tho gross injustice of the present system of levying local taxa tion, but enough Is known by every pro perty owner in the county to cause them to make a general demand for a read justment of t he present unequal methods of assessment. In conclusion, I may add that it lias been suggested to me that it would bo a good idea for tho county commissioners to invite the com missioners of the six anthracite counties to a general conference before making the next triennial assessment. By this means a uniform rate of* assessment on coal and oilier property that cannot be accurately valued by the local assessors might he adopted. It seems to ino that it would also be a good move to have all the local assessors summoned together at tho county seat in a body so that they might receive instruction from the com missioners in regard to faithfully obey ing tlio law in levying assessments. However, I may again remind these pub lic servants that the people are tired of tho injustice that has prevailed. Thoir | protests are hoard all over the country. I So loud, in fact, that tin; newspapers will soon he. compelled to pay some attention i to the question and endeavor to bring about a proper remedy to abolish in equalities in local taxation. I WIDOW PIHIVEY'S MISTAKE. lIY AMY RANDOLPH. £ 4 sF YOU please, mum, •'MI- trW iff (1 Mr-Marlowe'scom y he'd C• iwl e a * eW WOr( l S vv '*h you on very J - p e c i a 1 busi -1 T" , [\H '"s) Jemima, the jS" r maid of all work, fy|j ■ with the haste she had made, and her tened like pale blue The Wid ow Purvey took her hands out of the batch of biscuits she was kneading up and hurriedly shook the flour oil lifer arms. "What is it, Mirny?" said she. "Any thing wrong about his room?" "The Lord only knows," said Je mima, evidently much excited. "Where is he?" "A-wnlkin' up an' down the best back parlor like a wild beast, ma'am, at a show.!" "Bless my soul!" panted Mrs. Purvey; "whatcan have happened?" And hastily straightening her cap ribbons and tying on a ruffled black silk apron the Widow Purvey made haste to give audience to her best boarder. The Widow Purvey was fat, fair and CO, with a little capital, which she had invested in furniture for n boarding house, and very fairly she succeeded, on' the whole, especially since Mr. Marlowe, a whimsical old bache'or engaged in the China tea trade, had taken her best front room at her own price. "Gents are always better than la dies," said Mrs. Purvey to her intimate friend, Miss Larkspur, the milliner. "Mrs. Hyde is the only lady in my es tablishment now. and although she's quite genteel—French teacher in a young ladies' school—l shall give her a month's notice the very minute I hear of an eligible single gentleman to take her place." "Ain't she reg'lar pay?" asked Miss* Larkspur, snipping otT bias pieces of silk. "Oh, yes, reg'lar enough, but T never did fancy these pale, stuck-up chits that have seen better days and wear turned silk and dyed gloves! She ain't a bit better than I am, and yet she always has that patronizing way with her that you'd think she was a princess and we her hired maids." And thus matters stood on the Octo ber morning when the Widow Purvey hurried up to the back parlor where Mr. Geoffrey Marlowe, a fine-looking gen tleman with a healthy, fresh color and iron-gray whiskers, was walking up and down with his hands in his pockets. "You've been a long time coming, Mrs. Purvey," said he, a little imperiously. "I'm sorry to keep you waiting, sir," said the widow, all in a flutter. "Sit down," said Mr. Marlowe, mo tioning her towards a chair. "I have something of great importance to say to you." "Now, he is going to tell me that the place don't suit, and he's going to change his boarding house," said Mrs. Purvey to herself, feeling her heart beat within her; but she only smiled faintly and said: "Indeed!" "It's a little embarrassing," said Mr. Marlowe, feeling his whiskers du biously. "Don't mind me, sir," said Mrs. Pur vey. "The fact is," said Mr. Marlowe, "I'm thinking of making a change." "I'm sorry the place don't suit you. sir," faltered the widow. "But it does," said Mr. Marlowe. "I shall not leave you. Mrs. Purvey. Your mugnlntawney soup suits ine exactly, and you've caught my precise ideas on aalod dressing and curry sauce. No, The change of which I speak refers to —ahem!—another thing, Mrs. Purvey." "La, sir," said Mrs. Purvey, simpering. "You and I aren't feather-headed young people, Mrs. Purvey, to j lay mock modest., aire we?" said the bach elor. "So I may as well be frank. Tam thinking of marrying, Mrs. Purvey!" "Deer me!" said the laud lady, looking down at the put-terns of the carpet. "And I dare say you can guess to whom," said Mr. Marlowe, in high good humor. Mrs. Purvey twisted her black silk apron string around and around, hardly able to believe her own ears. "La, sir," faltered she, "I'm sure I never thought of such a thing." "I rather expected to surprise you," said -Mr. Marlowe. "But don't you see, after all, it's the most natural thing in the world? Here I am settled down in a place that cxiactly suits me; why should I leave it? llere I am, a blunt old bachelor of 50 —why shouldn't I marry a widow who, like myself, has seen something of the world?" A widow! That settled the question. "Sure enough, sir," said Mrs. Purvey, feeling as if she were soaring up into a world of white satin and tulle, orange blossoms and wedding cake. "What do you say to a month from Monday next?" demanded Mr. Marlowe. "La, sir—since you're so set. upon it—" "tan you have things ready?" "I'll do my best, sir," fluttered the widow. "And, one thing, remember—l don't ivant this matter talked about," "No, to be sure not," said Mrs. Purvey, accustomed to defer in all things to the whims of her lodger. "Let affairs go on just exactly ros if nothing was about to happen until the very wedding day," insisted Mr. Mar lowe. "Certainly, sir," said Mrs. Purvey. "That'll*do," said Mr. Marlowe. "Wo understand each other, don't we?" Mrs. Purvey nodded and g'ggled. "Then I won't detain-you any longer!" said Mr. Marlowe, deliberately walking back into his own room. ••"tVell!" said Mrs. Purvey, drawing " long breath. "T never wus rouj-ted that vuy before. But he's eccentric, aud always was, poor dear, and lie's yet to be a husband, lie might huvc just asked me for a kiss, though; and he might have called me 'Malvina' instead of Mrs. Purvey! But everyone has their whims, ar.d Mr. Marlowe is as chuck full of'em as an egg is of meat! What will Letitia Larkspur say? And that stuck-up Mrs. Hyde! I'll give her a week's warning at once, for it don't stand to nature as 1 shall keep on taking boarders after I'm Mrs. Marlowe. I wonder shall 1 wear white silk or dove color? I sup pose it will be a church wedding! A month's a dreadful short time to get ready in, but I can hire what sewing 1 want done, and it won't do to disappoint Mr. Marlowe!" Little Miss Hyde, engaged in correct ing French copy books in her l-ooin was surprised at the lack of ceremony with which Mrs. Purvey let her know that her room would be wanted that day week! "It will inconvenience me considera bly," said she, hesitatingly. "I can't help that," said Mrs. Purvey, with a toss of the head. The weeks passed away. Widow Purvey thought it rather strange that her bridegroom-elect should be so un demonstrative, and that aJI his tete-a tetes should l>e confined to the subjects of pudding sauce and shirt buttons. But then, as Miss Larkspur said, there never was any acccuntiug for the freaks of an old bachelor; and when the bridal eve came, and Mr. Marlowe conde scended to express approval of the wed ding breakfast as setout In the dining room over night Mrs. Purvey shed tears. "What arc you crying al>out. 1 hate to see women cry," said Mr. Marlowe, sharply. "1 can't help it. Such a change for me!" whimpered the widow. "Oh, pshaw!" said Mr. Marlowe, irri tably. "Change? It's no change at all. Here wc are just as we always have l>cen. I don't see anything to cry about. Remember the carriages ure to be at the door at 32 precisely." "I'll be ready," said Mrs. Purvey, swallowing a sob. And she was ready—dove-colored silk, dress-hat and all—for, according to the advice of Miss Letitia Larkspur, she had abandoned the idea of white satin and tulle veil as rather inappropriate to her age and condition of widowhood. "Please, ma'am," said Jemima, burst ing, red-faced and panting, into the room, "the carriage has been waithf this ever so long!" "But where's Mr. Marlowe?" de manded the bride-expectant, "Please, ma'am, lie went half an hour ago, said Jemima. "Oh!" said Mrs. Purvey, "I suppose it's etiquette to go in separute carriages, but it ain't the way me and Purvey managed it. Give me my fan. 'Mirny— and my bouquet—aud don't forget the smelling bottle. Now I'm ready." "Please, ma'am," bawled Jemima, who had rushed to the window on hear ing the sound of carriage wheels, "they've come back! And Mr. Marlowe, he's u-liundin' a lady dressed in brown M I AM SORRY THE PLACE DON'T SUIT YOU. SIR." silk, with a bird of paradise in her liat, out of the front carriage." "Dear me," said Mrs. Purvey, hurry ing downstairs. "What cau it ail main?" And she hastened into the presence of Mr. Murlovve, who stood in the best parlor, with Mrs. Ilyde leaning on his "You're too late to witness the cere mony," chuckled the quondam old bachelor. "We're married." "Who are married?" shrieked Mrs. Purvey, growing pallid under her rouge. "Bessie Hyde, mu'am, and your hum ble servant. Why, whom did you sup pose?" demanded Mr. Marlowe, open ing his eyes very wide. "Law k-a-massy!" cried Jemima, rushing forward to support the widow's swooning form, "Missus s'posed you was goin' to marry her!" "Then she was a fool!" said Mr. Mar lowe, briskly. "Come, Bessie, my dear, we have no time to lose if we are to catch the three o'elock train." Mrs. Purvey came out of her swoon and into her senses with commendable alacrity. If she had lost a bridegroom, that was no reason why she should also lose a lirst-class pair of boarders, felie tied an apron over her dun-eolored silk, and hurried to help serve the breakfast, "It was an awkward mistake," said she to Letitia Larkspur; "but life is full of mistakes. And perhaps I'm bet ter ofF just as I am." "No doubt, no doubt." said Miss Lark spur, whose theory was based upon that of the fabled fox who once lost his caudal aAj>endagc. "Matrimony's Creadful uncertain." "Even at the last moment," said Mrs. Purvey, with an involuntary groan.— N. Y. Ledger. Combined Teakettle n<l Still.
