MANY PEOPLE ARE SETTLING BACK AXES Effect f lMTn(.r Law Is Pelt avt tbe TrtMinr'i Offlee, Where Mae Money la Beta '.(' Paid. City Treasurer Howe stated laat night that his extra force of clerks now working on the delinquent tax list would complete their labors bjr the end of the week. This work Is beina done under the scavenger law. Since It became known that the rec ords for years back were being checked up the treasurer's office force has been kept busy taking In money for back taxes. In many ways the city council has helped out In this matter. A great many applications have been received from property owners who had withheld the payment of taxes on account of an idea that the taxes might be declared Invalid by the courts. Where the council came In was to remit the la. teiest on the payment of the principal. Treasurer Howe said last night that he had no Idea now of the total amount of de linquent taxes, aa so many people are call ing dally, and by making payments have their name crossed off the list. He ex pects, however, to finish this work by Sat urday night and then make a total. For over a month a dosen additional clerks have been working In the treasurer's office over the records, making up the scav enger Hat. This work baa gone on every day and nearly every night Treasurer Howe says that when a large portion of these delinquent taxes are collected or tbe property sold for taxes the city will be In flrst-clasa shape financially. emit a Paxil y Funeral. Funeral servioea ever the remains of Frank, Mary and Ray Smith were held In the auditorium at Workmen temple yester day afternoon. Svery seat In the large hall was oocupled and many stood during the services. Rev. Leander Lane, of tbe Christian church conducted the services. In his discourse be euld that the saloons were behind the bullets that killed Mr. Smith and her son. He also mentioned the fact that both Smith and his wife were left early In Ufa without parental Influenoe and that they had married too early In Ufa Rev. Pr. R. L Wheeler, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, assisted at tbe servioea After the services those who de sired were permitted to view the remains as they lay In caskets side by side In front of the platform. It is estimated that fully BOO people attended the services at the tem ple. Interment was at Laurel Hill ceme tery, where brief services were held. Brokca Stoae Beiaar Vsed. Tbe city has purchased some broken stone and Street Commissioner Troutaa Is filling In some of the holes on Twenty-fourth street In order to maks the roadway pass able. About two oars of stone will be needed to fill In tbe holes and make tem porary repalra It la thought that these repairs will last until the council can find some means of letting a contract for tbe annual repairs, which generally amount to, about $3,000. There Is some talk of trying to secure signers to a petition for the re paving of the street, but as only a portion of tbe taxes on the original paving has been paid this seems to be a hard matter. Some of the property owners say that they do not want to get Into another paving fight like they bad when the original pavement was laid. Consequently they seem to be willing to let the city officials keep on mak ing Improvements every year. A first-class pavement from A to Q streets with a good concrete base will cost, so engineers say, about 1146,000. The taxpayers think that this Is too much money and consequently they are declining to even talk of signing a paving petition. Joaee Series notices. Sanitary Inspector Jones has been about for ths laat day or two serving notice on property owners to clean up their back yards and alleys. Ten days Is given In which to do this work. Then there Is an' other Inspection and If ths orders have not been obeyed It Is up to the city authorities to die a complaint in police court or have the work done And assess the cost to the property. So far this week few If any of the orders of the Inspector have been obeyed and there la a disposition about ths city hall to file complaints and bring In a few property owners for trial before the police Judge. City Physician Sspp and others of the Board of Health say that there must be a general cleaning up and that soon. Aaanal State Deelamatory Ooateet.

CORNISH STATES HIS CASE T;l'i tha Fifth Ward Eepublicani that He Wants Their Support. NO TIME FOR FACTIONAL DISPUTING Admits taat lie Has Supported tbe Party's Nominees and Suggests that Others Do the Same. The annual meeting of tbe Fifth Ward Republican club for the election of offi cers was held last night in the hall at the corner of Sixteenth and Corby streets. The hall was crowded and, notwith standing the fact that the campaign is still so young, the meeting was very enthusiastic. E. J. Cornish was ths principal speaker of the evening and be succeeded In nailing a few campaign lies already circulated about him. In part Mr, Cornish said: "Boras persons have ths temerity to come to me and say that I cannot be nom inated because Mr. Rosewater Is support ing me. If you can show me a man who is a candidate for offioe this year who does not desire the undivided support of his party, I would like to see him. I want tbe support of Mr. Rosewater, Mayor Moores and all other republloana This Is a year when ws elect a president; when ws ought to strengthen our party. Did you ever know a political campaign In which I was not on ons slds or ths other, and did I not always maks It plain Just whom I would and did support? I am not a man who Is all things to all men, but X am outspoken In my bellefa "I have heard It said that I should be defeated because Z supported Frank EL Moores for mayor. But was he not nom inated and elected T And after his nomina tion was It not the duty of all consistent republicans to support him 7 Ars you go ing to tell me that a man should be pun ished for supporting tha regular nominees of his party? If a man at all times sup port the nominees of ths republican party, ha cannot go very far wrong." His Political Beliefs. Mr. Cornish outlined his opinion regard ing tha principal publlo questions which confront the nation today and made clear to his hearers that he had been following tbe leadership of such men as Ex-President Harrison, Secretary Taft, Thomas B. Reed and others who were In a position to know ths political Issues of ths nation bet ter than ouUIdera He closed with a strong appeal to his audience to gather at the polls on primary day and cast a full republican vote. Just to show that they are taking soma Interest and also re quested them to cast their votes for blm In order to prove that be is tbe choice of the republicans of this district for con gresa Incidentally, Mr, Cornish explained some matters In relation to Thomas W. Blackburn's methods of doing business, and this part of his speech seemed to meet with the hearty approval of his hearers. Robert CowelL chairman of the county oommlttae, followed Mr. Cornish with a few brief remarks In which he compli mented the former speaker and asked for himself ths votes of thoae present as a delegate) to tha national republican con vention. Tha organlaatloa of the club earlier In tbe evening resulted In the following offi cers being sleeted: W. B. Christie, presi dent; W. B. Block ham. vice president; Paul B. Seward, secretary, and W. L Klerstead, treasurer. This Is Mr, Christie's third consecutive term as president of ths organisation.- All of tbe oOosrg .vara looted by unanimous vote. . ' WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY. The New York City Federation of Women's Clubs has Just held its third con vention, the education, legislative, child labor and civics committees having the pro gram In charge. Each department of work was represented by one of Its recognized ablest leaders. Miss Margaret Haley, presi dent of the National Federation of Teach ers, spoke in behalf of education. She, with ber characteristic frankness and force, told the women that their schools are suffering from "one man" power; that their courses of study rather than being selected for the benefit of their children are mapped out by the business firms that have books to selL There wero also other speakers of noto. Mrs. Florence Kelley of the Consumers' league spoke In behalf of the child labor committee. She urged the club women to investigate tbe conditions In the stores where they make their purchases and to see for themselves the number of girls under U years of age who are employed there; that as the club women had aided materi ally In the passage of the child labor bill, t,bey now continue their effort in the much more difficult task of seeing that It Is en forced. The necessity of earnest work In each department was omphoalsed by the statement of personally gathered facts con cerning the corrupt conditions existing In the city and of tha stoma leas disregard Of res oils.
