BEAVER INCREASING RAPIDLY "If the trappers leave tho beaver hlono until I SM0 as provided for in the law there will be a lot of them around here hv that time, and clone to the town, too, " Kiila V. Carr, one of tho best informed hunter and trapers in the tipper country, to a leporter for the Diamond Drill tho other day. "1 know of several families about here now and they are increasing fawt. There are several big families down about railroad lake and one out on the Miehik'amme road. 1 haven't noticed that they have been distrubed by any one, si far, and they have been there about two years. Ed. Mitchell had an experience with these little animals this fall that ill ustrates well the industry, persistency and segacity of tho beaver. His lotf h'in road paralleled a creek for a Jontf way. A family of beaver located on the creek and every morning during tho mouths of October and NovemU'r the men had to breaic a clam. Tho dam was about twenty rods in width and from one to two feet hib. Tho men would clear tho whole sur roundings of tho debris from tho dam and when thay ;;ot out the next morn ing, there it would stand as largo and htron as ever, backing up the water for a quarter of a milo alonjj the road. It invariably took two nun two bonis to clear it away attain. One, evening on 5 or Ujo leiiows net a trap to catch out of the beavers ami s.-aio them1 awav in that manner. Ho i-hiced thi hap ery cleaverly, ri-,ht in tho run way and at a iiairow point where the avers had to pn-s through. Tl.o ni'M i;irnin.'' be Ji.utid J;im tnio con-i 1 1:0 il'lill U lf it 1 if.

Now, tne taxpayers who paid ander protest come in apd nsk a rebate of the taxes so 8 to be evened un with those who Rot out of paying. The lat ter clans is represented by Attorney Watson who appeared for thexn before the city council lat Wedneslay evening. In addition to the two classes men tioned there is a third claps who payed their taxes, jnst us they have done year nfter year, and who did not put any saving olanno on tnelr action. Thcfe peopln have no legal right to come in for n rebate. A glance over the lift shows that, in tho mam. they nrc tho working people who own homes in the city. In older to appreciate the injustice of the matter, looking at it from a purely equitable standpoint, it MMlft be uniombered that tho amonnt of tax lost by riou pvment in li'00 must b mado lip by Heavier assessments in sni'serjucni years ai.a linn me man who pail his taxes without cmestir-n has got to help pay the taxes thai were set aside, or in pain terms, that those who paid their taxes for ii'00 have got to go down in their pockets again and pay a fchaie of the taxes lo longing to ine reiiow wno didnt pay and who, in evrrv cane, is mora able to pay his taxes than they are. When the matter came up, a rebate was opposed nil of tho alderman and Mayor Wohse, not becauso the'v wanted" to 1h obstinate or leauw? the felt that tho petitioners were not, entitled to it in well as tho fellows who got out of paying but, necaun they felt that every person wiio paid taxes that Tear should get a rebate if one person does. Tho matter was left in this shape until a special meeting which is called fur tonight when this matter will bo taken tip and discussed. It is likely that a petition wi'l te presented from other taxpayers asking a rebate in case one is granted and there promises, to e some doings in the council. . ... .. i t,. , - ., . ... 1 1 ,. ting anotucr iiomUoiit i . . n , umi. 1 I .. !.,.
