NO APPEALS TAKEN.
Assessors Are Convincing Taxpayers
of the Justice of the Assessment.
Wo Notices Sent Out.
The board of city assessors has been
sitting for several days to hear ap
peals from the assessments made for
the First, Second, Third. Fourth, Fifth,
Sixth and Eighteenth wards, but
strange as it may seem, not a single
appeal has been taken.
There have been numbers of taxpay
ers who have come with the intention
of appealing but in each Instance they
have went away satisfied after hearing
the explanations offered by members
of the board.
It must be understood, however, that
no notices of the assessment against
each property owner have been sent
out this year and that the great ma
jority of the taxpayers are in ignorance
as to what their assessment is.
Many predict that when the state
ments of taxes for the year are sent
out by the city treasurer to each In
dividual taxpayer In the summer that
the assessors ofllce will be deluged
with people anxious to take appeals
from their assessment. The date for
taking appeals will be over then, how
ever The assessors, on the other hand,
contend that the amount of taxes to be
paid for the next llscal year by the
indlvldul taxpayer will be slightly low
er than the amount paid this year and
argue that the number of dissatisfied
taxpayers will be very small. It is
announced that the tax levy for the
year will be 4 1-2 mills on first class
property, 3 mills on second class and
'i 1-4 mills on third class.
The board will hear appeals from the
Seventh and Sixteenth wards today
and from the Eighth ward tomorrow.
What Dr. Eobert Hirschfield, of
Vienna, Says of It.
Dr. Robert Hirschileld, in the "Alto
Freio Presse" of Vienna, Is very em
phatic in his opinions of Paderewskl's
success as a composer of operas. "A
brilliant coterie, including Joachim
himself, attended the scene of the oc
currence," he says. "He executed a
few gorgeous evolutions but did not
move from the Dlace ho has hereto
fore occupied. He remained what he
had been, a virtuoso, but In addition
u dazzling virtuoso in the Wagnerian
style, of moods, of the orchestra. His
virtuosity showed itself at the outset
by his treatment of the libretto-pedal.
Ho clings to details: tho dramatic
line is broken: ho is a mnstor of de
tails in the technique of ornamenta
tion; he storms up and down the whole
keyboard of human feelings always
observant of a correct polyphony of
moods nnd voleeB, He moves, shocks,
ilres and inflames."
This looks on tho face of it ns it
wo wero In possession of an original
musical work, if there is anything
that is wanted nowadays It Is a work
that storms up and down the wholo
keyboaid of human feelings. There
Is even a suggestion of electricity in

She screamed vigorously and fought
her assailant so hard that ho desisted
from his attack and ran away. The

THE UNDERWRITERS HAVE NOT
KEPT THEIR AGREEMENT.
Thoy Promised When Certain Things
Were Dono That tho Incrdaso in
tho Insurance Would Bo Tnlton
Off Tho Things Havo Been Dono
and Now Thoy Are Suggesting
Still Other Things-City Officials
Displeased at tho Broach of Faith
of the Insurance People.
The pink slip signifying an Increase
of twenty-flvo per cent. In ilro Insur
ance rates Is still to be found on nil
policies Issued In this city mid many
persons nro asking the question who
Is responsible for tho maintenance of
this lnciensed rate?
Thero are some who are Inclined to
indirectly fix tho blame on tho adminis
tration but the facts In tho case do not
warrant even the suggestion of such
an Implication. The administration,
acting through Director of Public Safe
ty F. L. Wormser, has done everything
possible to secure a reduction of the
rates but all to no avail because ot tho
apparent desire of the board of iho
underwriters to continue the increased
rate in force.
Tho rate was increased some eleven
months ago shortly after the big lire
on Lackawanna avenue which did
upwards ot J300.000 damage. At that
time It was given out by the board of
fire underwriters for the middle dis
trict that the pink slips would be taken
off just as soon as cettaln requltemonts
s"t forth In a statement issued by the
local board in the summer of 1900 were
Last April tho lire department was
re-organlsed, tho volunteer force be
ing disbanded and an entirely paid de
partment came Into being. New hose
was purchased and also a new first
class steamer and a first-class hook
and ladder truck, thus fulfilling with
one or two minor exceptions all the
requirements demanded by tho local
Director of Public Safety Wormser
entered Into communication with the
officers of tho board of underwriters
for the middle district and was in
formed that as soon as-large size 4 1-i
Inch hydrants were Installed on Lacka
wanna avenue and other streets In tho
central city, tho rates would be re
duced and the pink, slips removed.
The director, anxious to have tho
extra burden taken off insurance payers
as soon as possible, hastened to c'om
ply with the request and the hydrants
were purchased and installed. While
tills matter was pending the director
was In constant communication with
tho officials of the board of under
writers and received repeated assur
ances that ns soon as the hydrants
were installed the pink slips would
come off inslanteiv
Upon the strength of these assur
ances and relying upon the word of the
insurance officials, Director Wormser
made public announcement that tho
rates were about to be reduced. Great
was his surprise after the installation
of the hydrants to find another hitch.
The hydrants were all very well, said
the insurance people, but, ahem! there
was great need for a central fire sta
tion and the necessity of purchasing
more hose was very apparent so that,
ahem! It had been decided to keep the
pink slips on until these additional
requirements wero complied with.
It is not difficult to imagine that the
director was displeased, to say the
least, at' this breach of faith but he
repressed his emotions and politely re
minded the Insurance men of their
former promise. They were inexorable,
however, and insisted upon a fulllll
mcnt.of their latest requirements. The
director accordingly inserted in ills es
timate for the coming fiscal year an
Item of $i",000 for the purchase of new
hose and provision for the erection of
a central fire station in the rear of the
municipal building is to bo made in the
bond ordinance soon to be Intioduced
City officials expect that when the
hose is purchased and the contract for
tho building Is let, a demand for the
purchase of ten new steamers and a
dozen new hose wagons will come In.
They have about deckled that the In
surance people do not Intend to take oif
the pink slips at all and that In pre
senting new demands every little while
they are merely "sparring for wind"
prior to an announcement that the In
crease In the Insurance rates Is on to
stay and will not bo taken oft'.
