This amount includes the assessment against the Prudential dividend fund. The unexpected low rate estimated for this year is due to the work of the Assessment Board in being able to increase the ratables to such an enormous degree. With the exception of the second, every taxing district in the city shows an Increase in ratables ranging from $300,000 to $4,600,000. The sec ond district shows a net decrease of $17,807,000 over last year. This, how ever, is also virtually an increase. This is the district In which the $32, 000,000 for the Prudential fund was credited, so when this amount is lopped off the year, the increase amounts to about $15,000,000. The bank taxable properties this year show a loss of about $1,330,750 over last year, due, the authorities, contend, to the fact that practically all of their investments are now made in tax exempt securitiel. roll Tax *83,262. The poll tax this year is placed at $83,262, which is an increase of a trifle over $3,000 over last year. Of this amount the city always figures to collect only about 60 per cent. Just 200 more dogs will be taxed this year than heretofore, bringing up the to tal to 2,900. As compared with last year the personal assessments this year show a decrease of $20,364,000. It -was from this account, however, that the Pru dential illegal tax of $32,000,000 was deducted so that an increase of about $6,000,000 is shown. For the first time since the land and improvements assessments were separated, the assessments for the former is higher than that for Im provements. Last year the value of improvements exceeded the value placed on land by about $15,000,000, while this year the land assessments will total about $5,000,000 more than those levied for improvements. The land increases this year will amount to approximately $27,688,000 over that of last year, while the im provements column shows an in crease of $8,122,690. Meadows lands are this year valued at $307,000 more than last year. The estimated ratables in the coun ty amount to about $606,150,754. From this sum, however, must be deducted the $56,452,242 for illegal assessments made last year, leaving a total of $549,698,512. The county budget amounts to $4,110,000. From these fig ures the county rate is placed at about .74, but, as told above, it was learned from an authoritive source that it will not go above .73. rue iauie snowing ngures in cacn or tne taxing aisiricis lonuws.

Stanford Minister Leads Missouri Posse Ready to “Hang or Burn” Winkfield. LEXINGTON, Mo.. Aug. 13.—In motorboats, on horseback and afoot to the number of several thousand, men today are beating the country about Lexington in search of Goldie Winkfield, a young negro, accused of attacking and murdering Estelle Pot ter, a 13-year-old girl, whose naked body was found in a ravine on her father’s grounds late yesterday. Men divided into a dozen posses kept up the search all night. Sentiment here 's so strong against the negro that threats have been made to lynch him. A minister of the town assisted In organizing the posse, declaring the negro should he "hanged or burned." Bloodhounds placed on the trull last night stopped at the Missouri river hank two miles south of here. At that point a belt, belonging to Winkfield. was found and it was discovered that a boat that had been tied up there was missing. Believing the negro had crossed the stream, the dogs were taken to the other bank. When they failed to pick up a trail, the posse leaders concluded the negro had gone down the river in the boat. A dozen men in motorboats searched the river for twenty miles each way without success. Other posses searched the neighboring woods and fields „ Sheriff Waddell said he would offer a reward of $F,00 for the apprehen sion of Winkfield. The sheriff does not believe the negro has killed him self. “T thinli he got away In a boat," he said, “but we will have him soon.” HUSBAND AND WIFE HAVE AUTO LICENSE REVOKED [Prom n Stott I orrespon<lent,l TRENTON, N.

For several weeks they have been holding classes In public speaking at the headquarters of the woman’s party, but no out sider has been permitted in the room. A group of newspaper men who had been refused admission to former classes were gathered outside the party headquarters yesterday when Mrs. Charlotte Rhodes, president of the organization, invited them in. "Come right in," she said. "The women need practise and they might as well start in on you. I guess everybody concerned can stand the ordeal.” She hustled the half-dozen report ers Into the small hall. "I wish there were more ‘goats’ for these maiden speeches, but I guess you will have to do for the present.” said the president as she led the first speaker to the platform. A dozen women made short talks on various political subjects. Each appeared nervous at the start but gained confidence as she became en thusiastic about her theme,. The women who graduated from the class yesterday will be used to organize and arouse interest in the city wards and a second class of be ginners will start in next week. r.—I ^ _ Caucus Tomorrow to Rush Tariff Bill, Then May Ad journ to November 1. WASHINGTON, Aug. 13.—Demo crats and Republicans of the Senate arc earnestly considering the advis ability of a recess of Congress until November 1, after completion of the tariff bill and passage of the currency bill In the House. Senate Democrats will caucus to morrow and discuss a proposal of re cess with plans for speeding up the tariff bill The Senate today resumed consid eration of the agricultural schedule, first taking up Senator Gronna' 1 amendment to increase the duty of six cents a bushel on corn to ten cents. Senator Gronna vigorously protested against plactng wheat on the free list and indorsed the House provision of ten cents a bushel and a compensatory duty on products of wheat. Senator La Follotte declared pro tection should not be taken from the farmer, and said he found a difference of six cents a bushel between the cost of wheat in the north central west and Canada. The producing cost in this country was sixty cents; in Man itoba. fifty-four cents and In Argen tine, fifty-one cents. The hill's duty of six cents on oats, he said, meas ured almost exactly the difference In cost of production with compet ing countries. He asked for a duty of six cents on whoat. "That will take away the cause for complaint on the part of agriculture as to this product," said he. WOULD OPEN POSTOFFICE SUNDAYS FOR VISITORS (Special to the Newark Star.! ATLANTIC CITY. N.

Miss Lawson was transferred to the lower class at a meeting of the Orange Board of Education last night. She received an annual salary of $1,025, and at a recent meeting sent a letter asking whether she hud been dismissed or given an assignment for the coming school year.

Aug. 13.—Mr?, Joseph Lee. of 923 Howe street, re turned from Norristown, Pa., yester day, where she had gone to examine tlie orginal marriage papers of her stepdaughter, Maude, and Samuel F. Cody, and said there was not the slightest doubt that the step-daugh ter was the widow and rightful heir of the Anglo-American aviator who was killed a few' days ago while making aerial experiments for the British Army. Going back to the days of 1888, when Forepaugh's circus visited Norristown, Mrs. Lee told of the trials and troubles that had fol lowed Maude and Cody from the time they met in the sawdust ring until Maude returned from England ] eight years ago in such mental con dition that she has since been con fined in the Norristown Hospital for the insane. While the body of Aviator Cody was being buried with all the honors of a military funeral at Aldershot, England, steps were being taken to prove that the woman to whom King j Geeorge sent his condolences was not, and had never been, the wife of the ex-cowpuncher and circus man, who died wearing the uniform of a British soldier. ‘'While Maude was the daughter of my sister Phebe," Mrs. Lee said yesterday, "X remember very welt the night she met Cody at the cir cus. Maude was seventeen years old then and she was Cody’s part ner, us well as wife, In many a cir cus, and In all parts of this and other countries, until she tlnally left him in England after she was in jured, and returned tt> her father's home. “Five months ago. I wrote CodV and told him Mr. Lee was getting old and tnat if he would send us a little money, even if it were only », few hundred dollars, it would help us out much. He did not answer the letter, although he had promised he would come home last Christmas, and then give us the medals and trophies Maude had won for her rillq shotlng." While Mrs. Cody is confined in-the Hospital for the Insane, she is not violent, but is allowed to help about the dining-room at the hospital; letters belonging to her are ad dressed to either Mrs. Cody or Misa Lillian Cody, Lillian being the name by which she was known to circus people.
