The Spanish-Americans follow ing Andrew's announcement be gan to line up their supporters, insisting that they, too, gave way to the selection of tho first two senators of the state, and consequently they now should be permitted to name one of their race as a successor to Fall.

Me dina, is about Roy this week dis tributing assessment blanks and attending to all business pertain ing to that important work. Roy and Solano are fortunate in hav ing as able a man as Mr. Rudolph to look after the work this year. It has ulways been cur bad luck to have deputy-assessors that knew absolutely nothing about the ins and outs of assessment. Mr. Rudolph intends to assess everybody liable to to assess ment and every law abiding citi zens should co-operate with him. If you are assessable, make hon est returns and do not try and beat our bankrupt county, it needs the taxes. We haye been asked about im provements on nn-patented claims. The Complied Laws of 1897, Section 4019, paragraph 2, reads as follows: The term improvements, in- eludes all 'buildings, structures, fixtures and fences erected upon or affixed to land, whether title has been acquired to said land or not. The answer is very plain, if. you own improvements on your claim, yen are subje'et to taxiVfy, for snch improvements, minus, your exemptions as ' head of a family, so do not try and talk the assessor out of it.
