LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER, THURSDAY. MARCH 11 1880.
A Warm Time Before the Commissioners.
This morning the county commissioners
heard appeals by property owners of the
First and Third wards, city, and the
borough of Marietta, from the increased
s valuation put upon their properties by the
county commissioners. There were quite
a number of appellants in attendance!
most of whom were owners of valuable
properties. Seme of them were represent
ed by counsel, and all insisted that the
assessment was tee high. The greatest
number of appellants were from the First
ward. It will be recollected that when the
several assessors of the wards and town
ships returned their books te the county
commissioners and the beard found that
the valuation had been se much decreased
that the rate of taxation would have te be
increased te raise enough revenue
for county purposes, they made a general
revision of the assessment and directed the
assessors of the several wards of the city
and of some of the country districts te add
an average of six per cent, te the valua
tion as returned by them. All of the city
assessors did se except Mr. "Welchans, of
the First ward, who refused te change his
figures. The commissioners themselves re
vised his book, added an increased valua
tion te several of the valuable prop
erties which they believed te be assessed
entirely tee low, and then added eight per
cent, valuation te all the properties in the
L ward. As only six per cent had been
added by the commissioners te the valu
ation of property in the ether wards the
ire of the First warders was raised, several
meetings were held within a few days past
te devise means te secure redress of Iheir
grievances, and as above stated they ai
pcared before the commissioners in force this
morning. In a few instances where injus
tice appeared te have been done, the com cem com
missieuers lowered the valuation, and in
iibeut half a dozen ether cases took off the
eight per cent they had added. In the
main their increased valuation was ad

H. P. C. A.
Tbe Pennsylvania Society te Prevent Cruel
ty te Animals.
The twelfth annual report of this asso
ciation has been issued in pamphlet form.
Celeman Sellers is president of the society,
and among the honorary vice presidents is
J. J. Sprenger, of Lancaster. The list of
local representatives includes Samuel
Slokem, Christiana; Geerge Badger, Col
umbia ; E. II. Burkhelder, Farmcrsville ;
J. C. Walker, Gap; Levi K. Brown,
Geshen ; Geerge H. Ettla, Marietta ; Dr.
C. H. Stubbs, Peters Creek ; R. C. Ed
wards, Quarryville: C. J. Rhoads, Safe
One of the chief ciTerts of the association
during the past year has been te promote
a school of veterinary surgery in this state
from the neglect of which science many
valuable animals suffer and mauy mere
The state society last year received $5,
730.80, of which $1,409.46 was from inter
ests en investments. It expended 83,
703.41. The agents of the society have been ac
tively engaged in patrolling their several
districts ; in investigating complaints ; in
visiting the cattle yards, examining and
reporting the condition of stock arriving by
rail, watching their unloading and reload
ing, seeing that they were properly water
ed and fed, and, when disabled or wound
ed, having them mercifully killed ; also,
inspecting the yards in which cows and
calves were exposed for sale, and prevent
ing the practice of bagging, which inflicts
great suffering en the cows and, at the
same time, deprives the calves of their
needed feed. Complaints arc made that this
form of cruelty is stiil continued,and direc
tions Iiave been given te arrest these
persons who .ire found persisting in
tiiis practice. The attention of legislators
is called by the society te the sufferings
inflicted en live calves in shipping them
from railroad stations, where they tee
long remain unfed.
On the poultry question the report says:
"The increased business of sending
chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, etc., alive
te market by railroad and steamboats,
consuming several days in transit, has
claimed our particular attention, the ship
pers frequently sending them iu coops te
closely packed, without any prevision for
feed or water. These coops are often
made se low as te compel the fowls
te assume a sitting posture from
which cramped position they arc un
able te rise, thus causing much
suffering and necessarily rendering
them unfit for feed. We have measured
some coops which came under our notice,
and found the height allotted te full-grown
fowls varying from 8 te 9 iuches, whereas
it should have been from 14 te 16 inches
for chickens, and from 20 te 24 for turkeys.
Remonstrance proving unavailing, arrests
were made and fines imposed by the mag
istrates ; our secretary has also written
letters te shippers of live poultry, and
called the attention of carrying companies
te this practice, and we intend te continue
our efforts until mere careful treatment
manifestly renders such labor unneces
sary. Most of the cases brought before the so
ciety and ministered te through its influ
ence are these of illy treated horses and
mules, but during the past year beat
en, turpentined, clubbed and tormented
dogs ; starving, scalded and dirty cats ;
baited bears and even abused turtles have
received merciful attention. The seeiety
makes strenuous effort te abate cock-fighting
and deg-fighting, with measurable suc
cess. Touching the .,.iiclioratien of the condi
tion of horses this report says: "Wc no
tice with increased satisfaction tlie care
and kindness generally manifested in this
city in the treatment of horses and mules,
particularly these used in teams and for
business purposes, and with comparative
ly few exceptions these used in the city
passenger railway cars; also the relief
afforded te animals by vehicles of improved
construction, which are gradually super
seding the cumbrous cart and dray;
wc are pleased
is the exception,
te state that it
and net the rule,
that officers have te interfere en account of
improper treatment of draught-horses by
their drivers. There is one class of horses,
wc regret te say, that still continue te
suffer at the hands of their drivers,
namely, the horses owned by the rich. We
would naturally expect greater care from
persons of this class, yet scarcely a day
transpires en our fashionable thorough
fares or in the park but horses may be
seen that are suffering torture from the
use of the
ward by the
head being drawn up
cruel appliances attached
thereto, the mouth forced out of its proper
shape, and the muscles of the neck un
naturally contracted by the tightly drawn
check-rein. The drivers have beeu ex
postulated with, and communications ad
dressed te owners whose names could be
ascertained, yet this shameful practice
still remains a disgrace en our civilization.
Wc cannot but believe that much of this
abuse exists without the knowledge of the
owners, and would again respectfully call
their attention te the subject, especially
de we solicit ladies, drawn by these noble
animals, te use their influence te prevent
this cruel abuse. "
A detailed account is given of the bull
and bear fight at Custer City, which the
society vainly tried te repress. The
managers say : " Owing te the cowardice
of the principal witness, and the defective
action of the justice at Custer City, we
failed te secure the conviction of a number
of the participants, as well as the confisca
tion of the animals employed in
this disgraceful exhibition. The ac-
of the society in this affair
however, aroused the attention of
thoughtful persons in that remote section
of the state, and will no doubt tend te
prevent the re-enactment of similar occur
rences, by revealing the power which the
state has wisely vested in the society for
the protection of animals from cruelty."
The Soup Heuse.
Daily rations have been given out at the
soup house ever since it started and for
the past week or mere there has been a
slight falling off in the number of appli
cants. Last month the daily average was
ever 400, but it will net be se large this
month. This morning the number given
out was 290, but it is almost always above
300. Should the weather continue te be
very bad the soup house will remain open
for a short time, but if it should become
fine again it will be closed en Saturday.
The list for argument court, which
commences en Monday next, is out. In

Want It Known As Mt. Helly.;
The colored people at Arcadia station en
the Peach Bettem railroad, are restless
about the name by which their new church
is called by some. They have almost
unanimously agreed te call it Mt. Helly,
notwithstanding the white trash call it
Arcadia. One of tli3 brethren writing te
the Oxford Press says :
In my estimation, the colored people can
cheese their name for themselves ; their
right is as free us for any nation of the
earth. Let us agree en one name and
Mount Helly let it be. Suppose, as time
passes, some of the brethren are called up
higher, te take their seats inside the beauti
ful gates of Paradise. They go te the gate
and knock and St. Peter he say "whedar?"
One of the brudders say he come up from
Mount Helly and the ether say he clim the
steeps of Arcadia. St. Peter, he leek kind
of stunned and say he believe he is net suf
ficiently acquainted with the geography of
southern Lancaster county te locate 5leunt
Helly and Arcadia, as se few people have
come up from that county ; but he would
just get the atlas and see. Why, says he,
here I find the Peach Bettem railway
worming across the country and here is a
place marked Arcadia; but where is
Rigby ? and I don't see Mount Helly. A
few Rigby saints are here, who fought
their way up threujdi much tribulation ;
but there is an evident lack of spirit these
latter days. A wail gees out for Rigby,
because her quarterly and yearly meeting
days will no mere awake the responsive
chimes of heaven's arches. Has
Rigby been razed from the face of
the earth and left no 11.11110'.' Yes,
yes, St. Peter, say one of the brudders, we
have buildcd her anew at Mount Helly,
hard by the station called Aarcadia, and
we come up here, claiming the glorious
title of Rigby's'sens,and though my brudder
here has said lie was from Arcadia he
means Mount Helly, and we want in. The
white folks say we be Arcadians, but we
knew we can't get te heaven by the
Peach Bettem railway and se we have
concluded te alfef us register from Mount
Helly. And St. Peter said it was wise
and se marked Mt. Helly ever Arcadia en
his map and welcomed them in. Se let us
knew our meeting house as Mount Helly
at Arcadia Station."

lie has Killed his Wile.
A man about forty years old, decently
dressed, of middle height, and wearing a
heavy beard, entered Rupp's bakery, at
He. 4G2 Ninth avenue, New Yerk, early
yesterday morning and asked a girl at the
counter if there was a yard back of tlie store.
Before 6he could reply a customer entered,
and the man, with a frightened leek, ran
through the store into the yard at the rear
and thence into the baking room in the base
ment. There be saw Mr. Rupp and asked
him excitedly for a knife. Seeing one lying
en a bench, he moved toward it, but a son
of Mr. Rupp coming in at the moment in
tercepted him. The stranger then cowered
in a comer and exclaimed : " Have you
come for me ? I killed her ! I did it !"
The man was then put into the street,
and at once ran into Philip Fleichner's
shoe store, and seizing a knife from a
bench, drew it across his threat, cutting a
fearful deep and wide gash. He fell at
once te the iloer, and the alarmed shoe
maker sprang te the deer, calling lustily
for the police. Officer McDermott came
in, and an ambulance came from the
Rosevelt hospital. On his way thither
the wounded man murmured : '" I kil.ed
her I killed her." When asked whom he
had killed, he could only say, " My wife.
In Christopher street this morning." He
died in half an hour, and remained
through the day without identification.

Officer Bewer, at the Ninth precinct police
station in Charles street, that early in the

street." The officer found nothing wrong
en going there. The reporter visited the
place and found it te be a little bake-shop
kept by one Charles Brucker.
Frem a neighbor it was learned that
Brucker had acted strangely for some
time, and this morning, after quarreling
with his wife had disappeared. Upstairs
in a small room, surreuuded by three little
children, the wife was found. She denied
that her husband had ill-treated her, as did
the elder child, a boy. At the hospital, at
a late hour, it was ascertained that the
dead man had worn a ling bearing the
name of Charles Brucker.
