Arthur Hussle, the 12-year-old hoy who came to Omaha recently to take the nnral examination, but failed, waa discharged In police court on a charge of vagrancy. fter falling to pass the requirements to secure an assignment on a battleship, the oy applied to the police station for a acani y on the police force. Tas Commissioner Fleming urges that the city council reconvene as a Hoard of localization to hold a session of ten days or more to bring before It all taxpayers who failed to meet the requirements of the new revenue law In making out their re turns to the commissioner. This recom mendation Is made by Mr. Fleming In his annual report, Just filed with Mayor Aioores. After referring to the decision of the dis trict court, wt.lch declared Invalid the V) per cent penally clause of the new revenue bill, Mr. Fleming states that he was left without power to enforce correct iciurna, that many derelictions were noted and then adds with reference to his rccom- It.tmlailun: i his course seems absolutely necessary to Uo simple Justice to those who do miet tbe rt'iui. ementa and who subject their personal property to the assessor. Other wise It is a questionable and an Inequit able act to attempt to assess other than vi.iihlu personal property. His report In full Is: Report In Pall. OMAHA, Feb. 10, 1904. To the Hon. Mayor ami cay council, t.iiv ot Omaha: uentie- l..en 11 Is (livir.tole mot the annual report of the tax departimnt should Incorporate In U I lie total oi the ututensiiieiit roll alter the elm n gee mane by the boards of review .and equalization ami unon which the levy Is made lor the year. The report should bo made In January usually, nut on ac count of litigation and delay Incidental to me enforcement of the new revenue law It wm nnpoiialuie to make a complete and KutlMlactoiv Kliowinir until now. It was a matter of roine uoulit whether In connection with the city charter the old or new revenue law shoud be operated for the assessment of 1:4)3-4. The law took enect beptcmoer 1, lwj. The city assexs tuviil begum hepternber 15, but It was ques tionable If some of the provisions of the Hew law could lie applied before Apr! 1. Jw4, ut which time the law would be op erated In the stule as a whole. Having legard to the equity of the matter, viewing the law as a severe and strict one and with the possibility of Its being modified Hi the next meeting of the legislature, Omaha would have to operate It for two years and no other part of the state more man once, ine Disposition of tne commls- oner was to avoid using the new law. If ble. but. after thorough consideration and aner consultation and advice of the city attorney and others of legal ability, It wus made plulnly Imperative that the new law must be used, and It was used strictly to the letter and In Its entirety until the aanessmcni was about one-third complete. A suit was then brought In the district court seeking to prevent the using of the new law. 'ihe ue of the new law was sustained, however, except as to certain features, via: the answering of the inter- loeatlona on the scnedule. llie requiring of mo ue or me worq - none, tnn form of ain vse-i ant tne 60 per cent nenn tv clause. This decision, while still requiring he tax commissioner to continue using the now ikw, crippiea tne department serlouslv. ana v i first assessment Is not a fair lllus- ra.btti "t tne working of the new law In i iuii power. Features Objected To. The new law fairly bristles with features objected to and It haa again been attacked through the courts by several Interests-r-i.olably Insurance. It la to be hoped that before the next assessment of the city be comes necessary, the state supreme court will hava passed on some of the dis I'Uted points, arising from this year's city nu cuiiiiiik mine assessment ror 1SW4. lo make the new law errm-tiva in tended, the amount of addiUonal work de volving upon the department has been very large and has necessitated a large clerical , force during the assessing period and fol lowing weeks. The searching of records of the register of deeds and. other county offices for mortgages and other personal properly not found on the schedules sent 111. Waa SDeCtflclullV renillrerl nnrier the now law to be done, and' the parties notified of the fact. ' This required Identification In all cases and notices to be served, all of which entailed a material amount of ex pense. The obtaining of properly sworn state ments. Without which the new luw u.mlrl be Ineffective, caused repeated calls of the deputy assessors on the taxpayers, so that an Increase of ten deputies for twenty dnya was not sufficient, even with a liberal use of the mall, to get sworn returns of Eersonat property In all cases. Of the per cent of schedules returned I find 1.18 persons or companies who returned 1500 or Inore personal property, declined to swear to tne returns, and 3i7 persons or com panies, who were Judged to have personal property of 5C0 or over, made no returns pf response whatever. The makers of the IBW provided for such cases by Imposing on per cent penalty, but as the district court decided the provision was tihcnnstltu tlonal, nil there was left for me to (In. aftr exhauslng what power of compelling I bad. was to turn such over to the Hoard of Equalisation, with the recommendation that they use the powers they had as a board. In the event of the supreme court sustaining the derision of the district court. ruling tne penally clause unconstitutional I would recommend that the council, sit ling ss a Hoard of Equalisation, provide to bold a session of ten diva or mere In order to bring before It all who fall to meet the lequlromenta of the new law. This course seems absolutely necessary, to (lit simple Justice to those, who do meet the luiremente and who auniect tneir per sonal property to the assessor. Other wise It Is a questionable and an Inequitable art to attempt to assesa other than visible personal property. Principle Sow la Courts. The principle Involved In the matter of assessing by the tax commissioner Inde pendently the railroad property usually as teased according to the returns of the State Hoard of Kqtiullsatlons, bring already In the United State courts on trial, and I having been enjoined by the United Statu court rrom assessing tne Chicago, m. ram, Minneapolis Omaha and the Fremont, K Ik horn & Missouri Valley railroads for 14, and enjoined by the same court a year ago from entering on the tax list my assessments on the other railroads for 1S04, the railroads are assessed for their rlght- oi-way, eic, Becoming to the State Hoard of Equalisation tlmir.-s.

The Loss to Fire Insnrance at Balti more and the Urk of It to I.lfe tn sn ranee What Did Happen and What ('onldn't Happen. A remarkable fact In connection with tha great fire at Baltimore Is that while the total loss was something IfEe $125,0r0,rtt and tho loss on policies to the fire insurance companies will amount to perhaps $80,000, 0(10. there Is no loss whatever on policies to the life companies. No one waa killed. and though there will be loss to some of the life organizations on their property, that Is a thing which might happen to a man or an Institution anywhere, and the Interesting fact remains that In one of the heavies calamities to property in alt his tory no human life was sacrificed. . There was no llttte anxiety the last day of this fire, and even the day following. as to Its possible effect upon the financial markets of the country. The ablest and most careful of men could not, for a day or two, savwhat might result If great sums of securities were thrown upon the market to enable the fire Insurance organ! zatlons to meet their losses. Here is where a striking contrast comes In cs to the pos slble nltuatlon in regard to any loss that life Insurance might ever sustain. V'lth the widespread nature of their risks, tha per fection of tho system, the diversity and broad distribution of their securities and the Immutable laws of longevity upon which their losses are based, there could never be such a blow to the life organlza tions as to make men obliged to stop even for an Instant to wonder what the effect was to be on the- general market or on the companies themselves. -i One may Imagine an earthquake ruining the business part of New York, killing several thousand heavily insured men and destroying property belonging to the life companies to an extent great enough to occasion them a loss beyond all previous calculations. That would be trenching about as closely on the domain of the Impossible as he Imagination can conceive, but even in such a case assets held else where would be enough to meet every loss. "War, pestilence and famine" may do their worst, but the day can seemingly never come when people will have chance to wonder how any unprecedented event la going to uffect the life organ! cations, or If the business of the country at largo may ever possibly be disturbed over their losses no matter how heavy; Aanonnremen ta of the Theaters, Matinee and night performance will bring the bill for this week at the Orpheum to close today.
