No little amusement was afforded spectators Wednesday last by the impromptu horse race between Jones, the butcher, and John Cobleigh. Jones hotly resented an insinuation that his "cheap horse was a plug" and by his masterly driving pushed him under the wire ahead of his com petitor by several ..lengths. John, however, insists that h Ima tha lat est horse but that things "was agin- ii i m una time. AX ILLEGAL APPRAISAL. Indications are that the quad rennial appraisal of real estate in Hyde Park is illegal. The ground upon which we make this statement is that the Listers have not perform ed their duty according to law. Sec tion 292 of the Revised Laws of 1880 says: " In the year 18S2 and quadrennially there after the Lwters in each town shall make a new appraisal of the taxable real extute in such town nnil shall n-tiirn tin- list thrrvnfto to the Town Ch'rk's oltice on or hi fore tha first Tui'stliiy in July in sni li i t nr." The Listers have not returned their list and so have failed to act accord ing to law. By this negligence they have made no provision whereby any person who may feel aggrieved can appeal. Sections 297 and 298 read : "A persoi aggrieved by the appraisal of the Listers may, within three days after the Brut Tuesday in July of theyear of appraisal, appeal to the hoard of civil authority in the town where the real estate is situated, and shall give immediate notice to one of the Se lectmen nnd to one of the Listers. "The Town Clerk upon application by a member of the board of civil authority shall immediately call a meeting of Baid board, by posting no' ices in three public places, giving not less than six nor more than ten days' no tice thereof; aud said board shall hear all appeals and their decision shall be final." II. C. Lanpher, who is the chairman of the board, has had charge of the matter and we are informed that the other members have acted as he di rected supposing of course his knowl edge of the Listers' duties was such as to make it impossible for any error to be made. It is therefore very evident that the board has made an egregious error. The suggestion is made that this irregular appraisal can be made legal by special act of the Legislature; but the Supreme Court has held that the General As sembly has no power to legalize lists unless aggrieved tax-payers have au opportunity to be heard. We do not wish to make any mis statements, but feel it is our duty to point out this error in order that the people may see how well the Listers have performed their work. We shall cheerfully give place to any statements the Listers may have to make regarding this matter. CENTRE V1LLE. Several around here finished haying last week. Mr. and Mrs. E. B.
