Civil Authority Board Avoids
Unjust Taxation
Important Precedent Established Last
Night Board Also Cut Down F. B.
Hutching List and Refund
Offset to C. N." Field,
Several precedents in taxation were es
tablished by the board of civil authority
at its adjourned meeting last evening,
the first of which relieved Charles Marr
from double taxation, the second permit
tod F. B. Hutchins to remove a sale
agreement from his .taxable list and the.
third refused the appeal of C. N. Field,
who asked for offsets n his stock in the
Granite Savings Bank and Trust com
pany. A. A. Sargent was chairman of
the meeting.
City Attorney Carver reported opin
ions on all three of the eases. In the
first Charles Marr assisted Louis Lancia
to buy a farm lying in Barre Town and
Plainfield and a bond for deed was
passed. The statu of the property, it
bad been decided, was that the title rest
ed with Mr. Marr, and he was therefore
taxed for the farm, partly in Barre Town
and partly in Plainfield, Then came the
city of Barre and proposed tax Mr. Marr
again on the identical property, lie be
ing a resident of the city.
City Attorney Carver interpreted the
bond for deed as being similar in opera
tion to a mortgage, and he therefore re
ported that the city could tax Mr. Marr.
Attorney John VV, Gordon appeared for
Mr. Marr and cited ft supreme court
opinion to the contrary. The board of
civil authority, after viting that the ap
peal be not dismissed, passed a motion
that Mr. Marr's list be reduced by the
amount of the agreement.
Short work was then made of the ap
peal of Mr. Hutchins, on which the city
attorney had reported the city had a
right to assess, although from the read
ing of the agreement to sell the tax
should be assessed against Maria
Hutchins instead of F. B. Hutchins. The
board granted the appeal, and the tax
lixt of the said Hutchins was'reducej by
the amount of the agreement, minus the
offset he had entered.
The eity attorney reported that, in
view of the opinion of the supreme court
in declaring the law illegal which refused
the right to enter offset by non-residents
of the state and the consequent repeal in
1900 of the law, the city of Barre must
consider for the purposes of taxation C.
N. Field as having the same rights a 4 a
resident of the citr. Mr. Field's appeal
that he he, had" been discriminated
against on the ground that he was a non
resident was denied at a previous meet
ing of the board. The name action was
taken at the meeting last evening, how
ever. M. M. Gordon appeared for the board
and asked for a reduction on the assess
ment on his new house on Hill street on
the ground that the building was assess
ed April 1 as being nearer completion
than it really w-.is. The board decided
that it could not hear any new appeal
and told Mr. Gordon that he might go
to the board fur abatement of taxes
later in the year and present the same

Northfield Fails Post Office
Burglarized Last Night
Only About $80 in Money and Stamps
Was Secured But Some Private
Papers of the Postmaster Were
Carried Away in Drawer.
The post office at Northfield Falls was
burglarized 'last night and the safe
blown open. About $100 in money and
stamps was secured and two drawers
containing the private papers of the post
master were carried away, presumably
for a more leisurely examination. Sheriff
Tracy was notified, and lie, with several
deputies in Barre, Montpelier and sur
rounding towns, and also State's Attor
ney Uates went to that village this morn
ing to investigate.
This is the fourth or fifth time that
the Falls post office has been broken into,
the last occasion being August 11, 1005.
Never before, however, has ihe safe been
blown open as this morning. This leads
to the m'lief that it was professional
"yeggnien" who did the work.
About one o'clock this morning Miss
Annie Rich and Mrs. Pierson who live
nearbv the post office, which is situated
a Jittie off the main part- of the village,
were awakened by three explosions. They
attributed the noise to an earthquake
and were surprised therefore that the
building did not shake. E. I Cross, the
postmaster, who lives a little further
away, afo heard , sounds, , which he
thought came from a revolver. No in
vestigation was made at the time.
How Robbers Got Jn.
This morning at half past five when
Mr. Cross went to the Bobbins store, in
which the post office is located, he found
on window smashed open with a railroad
coupling pin, the sash and all being car
ried awjy. Later Deputy Sheriff II. D.
Camp traced this coupling pin and found
it came from a freight car on tha nearby
' Inside the post office Mr. Qross found
a disarranged state of affairs. The rob
bers had used the coupling pin to break
off the knob of the safe. Then they had
drilled holes and inserted nitro-glycerine
and cement. The floor and desk were
covered with debris, and the contents of
the safe wer removed largely. In the
two small drawers which the robbers
carried away was $45 belonging to the
money order department. On the first of
the month from $00 to $100 in stamps
of smaller dimensions had been received
and little had been sold , The stock was
all taken A blue book containing stamps
of larger dimensions was not taken by
th roblers. Nor did they carry away
six contra! Vermont mileage books and
tickets, although they scattered them
about the store. The postmaster also
found on the floor a half-burned fuse.
United Slates Inspector I. J. Rapp of
Burlington has been notified and will
take charge of the investigation. Thus
far there are no clues to the perpetra
tors of the act. f
