It should be said for the City Assessors, la relation to the mention of them in cannection with the Finance Committee, that their clerk made some errors footing up some columns of figures (errors in addition.) - The '"Assessor, are not responsible for them, further than the fact I : Kt ttia eolAnt tdnlr olarl- Til mi fit Jit PS 1 DUM IHT -CT.V. . " V. " ' least, ad the commiUe called attention - to the matter with a view to avoid errors . which might be serioes in the future. V It would be well, however, if the ; As eessors would conifer with the Finance Committee in regard to the assessments, for it is sure URit the low valuations cause a necessity for high tax rate. It is admitted that while much of the personal state escapes taxation altogether, the real croDertr is assessed at little more than h&lf its value. The total valuation of ' real and personal estate last year amounted to less than $12,000,000, while its real value is more than $20,OW,UW. The total amount of mcney required to be raised by taxes last year, was, in round number, for county purposes, $ 73, 000 ; State, $29,000 ; school, $51,000 ; city, $183,000; total, $337,000; which upon a valuation of $11,400,000 required ; a tax rate of 2.96. While, if the property had been assessed at near its real value, say $18,000,000, a tax rate of lesj than 2 per cent would have been sufficient. The -.. taxes are really no higher here than in Philadelphia, but the lower valuation " makes them appear higher. It makes no differences to the owner of a house .worth $1,800, whether it be assessed at that and pays a tax rate of two dollars, or . assessed at $1,200 and pays a tax rate of $3, the amount paid in either m abroad and an impression goes forth that i - me taxes in uamaen are excessive. The reason given for the low valuation that the Township Assessors assess the real estate at a very low rate, an instance beinsr mentioned where farms valued at $350 per. acre were assessed at $75 per acre. Say the advocates of a low valuation: "If our Assessors were to assess property at its real value the city would pay four-fifths of the taxes levied in the county, instead of three-fifths as at present. Our Assessors, therefore, in making a low valuation, are doing so in the interest of the eitizens, and are but meeting the township Assessors, on their own ground. It "would be unjust to city tax payers if their property was assessed at its Jull value, while township property is assessed at less than half, and in many instances at one-fourth its value. The City Assessors are doing what they can to save the taxpayers from imposition. This is no doubt the truth, but would it not be wise for the Assessors to confer with the Finance Committee, and by their joint wisdom find out a cure for the evil.

Upon reading further down, I find that he had been sentenced to State Prison, but was out on $5000 bail, pending decision of Supreme , Court JfowMr. Gallagher "some one-or other of the illustrious family" has been occupying quite a large part of, the space of the Post' 8 criminal news. He has cost the county an immense amount of money, and I am anxious to know if the county has ever received any in return ? Do the men who go on . his bond - ever pay the amount, or does a man's bond m ean no more than his word, nowadays ? I am anxious to know whether there is any reason why the sureties of a defaulting treasurer should not make good, the losses by his defalcations p. .w I am anxious to know whether, if I choose to be a persistent and continual law breaker I may have the as ne immunity from serious annoyance as the criminials who have been so intimately acquainted with our courts T I am anxious to know whether an utter disregard of the rights of rich and poor alike in the stealing of their funds will entitle me to any especial sympathy in the community ? I am anxious to know whether I may not just as safely be bondsman for some one in a position of trust, although I own no property, as another citizen who does own property and who, by a lax enforcement of law or the connivance of unjust J udges-esqapes -theconseqnences which he assumed when he became surety ?

We need the milk inspector in Camden again, not only to give us the condition of the milk in cans at. the depot but also of that which is retailed by farmers. Philadelphia people are pretty generally paying eight cents a quart for good milk, while we are still paying ten cents for a poor, confounded poor quailty. Two to four cents extra a quart makes us foot the extra feed bill, and the milk shows there is verv pc feeding.

The prisoner has been very much secluded lately and all admissions to his cell have been cut off. Finding my own admission barred on professional grounds and knowing the vanity of the assassin, a lady emissary was pressed into service. She was received by General Crocker with his usual politeness and the assurance that Guiteau was not to be seen. The warden very kindly volunteered to show her the jail, however, and talked freely of his charges. Conversing on the subject nearest the feminine interviewer's heart, General Crocker was emphatic. He said: "I have no doubt in my mind of the sanity of the prisoner. His actions in Court are assumed. He is a changed man as soon as he enters the jail. He is quiet, polite and gentlemanly. Perhaps he puts on a little more dignity at times, but that may be owing to an exaggerated opinion of his own iiuportahce,'r "Do you think," asked the writer, "that he will be convicted and hanged 7" "Most assuredly," was the warden's response. "He will hang in this jail. Come and I will show you where.'' With this General Crocker led the way to the corridor in which is located that horrible instrument of death, the gallows. It arose gaunt and grim at the end of the gloomy corridor. Everything was in its place except the noose dangling from the beam. The warden told of the number of times it had -been used and discussed with apparent earnestness and conviction the question of its soon being employed to strangle the murderer of President Garfield. . " Do you pull the rope?" was asked. " Oh, no r said Warden Crocker. " A great many people take part in the pre parations for the hanging, borne pinion him. others walk with him from the cell, others assist him up the steps and. still oth rs may adjust the noose, draw the cap and place him upon the fatal trap, No one person does the deed, but it is the work of many." "But, after all," was the suggestion "the one who pulls the rope kills the man. Who will he be ?" " That is a prison secret. Of the forty hangings I have witnessed I do not know the person Who pulled the rope to any of them. It is usually one of the prison ers. You see that last cell window directly opposite the trap ? The man who pulls the rope that springs the trap s'ands insiae. " Are there many volunteers to assist at the next hantrinz 7 ' " Plenty. There is a very bitter feeling smong the prisoners in regard to the assassin. Even the other murderers execrate his name. I beliere he would be torn to pieces if admitted among the inmates, lie would be no safer with them than on the streets." " You'll surely let me see his cell f " Why, it's against my promise," hesi tated General Crocker, : "Now, do just let me peep in for a moment," was the persistent appeal. " Well, I will," he said, relenting. ' But you must not talk. " How are you to-day ?" was the greet ing of the lady, who began talking at once. "Oh I I am well and cheerful always," mam t Vi a amiltnrv rflertnnua " Cheerful J Why how can you, be cheer ful in such a place ? ' "It is verv comfortable and uleasant here. General Crocker takes good care of me," replied he. """ " : "r ilButitis a prison aflerjiU. I should think you would be very sorry ,for what you have done," was the rejoinder. " Why should I be sorry 7 I am contented in having done the Lord's will," was the matter-of-fact answer. . " But allowing it to be the will of God, are you not sorry he selected you for it V " " Not at all," he answered, smiling. I would not occasion pain or commit murder sooner than any other man, but I bad to remove the President. The Lord commanded me. I dared not do otherwise." An earnest expression overspread his face as he uttered the last sentence. It was very clever acting. "But it was such a terrible thing to do," was urged. "That may be so, but there was a terrible crisis," ne said, with an air of conviction. " The country had to be saved, and I was the man selected by the Deity to come to its rescue." , NO FEAR OF CONTICTION. s "Have you no fear of conviction V "None whatever..- I will be acquittptl. That jury will never hang me," was the self-satisfied answer. "Oh! but you certainly cannot expect acquittal. You are too sensible a man for that" ' He evidently took this last remark for a compliment for his face .became ladiant JUut m the same comment manner he said "I will be acquitted. I must be. The Almighty is with me." . "I can understand that youmicht hope for a division of the jury, but there are no grounds upon which to base your belief in acquittal." - "Wellr said he. "a division "will be a poiht gamed, and I will be safe." v ; "Da you not feel orry for the bereaved family of General Garfield ?" "Yea. res ; of course I am sorry for them. But the good of the nation is n more importance than a matter of that kind. But I don't like to talk about that. 1882. I shall have something to say about that in my speech. I have not finished it yet, but 1 will complete it this evening." "Are von going to take up anything special in your speech V - "No," said he, drawing himself up proudly. "I will cover the whole ground. It will be a startling speech and will electrify the people and disturb CorkhiU's vanity. It will convince the jury of my innocence beyond a doubt It will do more to vindicate me than all Scoville and Reed have done." Changing the subject suddenly again the prisoner , wad asked if he hvl prepared his will? -- "No," was the reply, with a degree of amusement in his tone, "there is no need ofthat" , The prisoner remained standiiigJjgLrins:; the inter view,' and as the visitor turned to depart he bowed in his most polite manner and requested her cordially to call again. Oandented from PhUa. IVot.- Court This Morning;. This morning, before Justice Parker, Messrs. C. A. Bergen and John W. West cott argued at length the law points and the relation of the facts to them in the case of Hugh McLaughlin vs. William McLaughlin. The suit is to recover expense incurred in boarding, clothing and educating the young son of William McLaughlin, who resides in California. Young- McLaughlin-was sent to board with Hugh McLaughlin, his uncle, by the father, who was to pay Hugh ten dollars per month." Sixty months of unpaid board is sued for by Hugh. The defence is that although the boy went to his uncle as a boarder, the latter used him in his business as a milk dealer and more than recompensed himself thereby. The defence claims that the boy -worked for his uncle for four years, and payment for the services at the rate ot four dollars per week. . This case is still on trial. - The labors of the grand jury are ended and the forty-three bills returned as against about one hundred last term indicate that their labors have been light, and that the morality of the county is improving. Seven of the bills found are against Horace Hammell, the forging Secretary of the Newton B. and L. Association, with several more to hear from. One of the noticeable features of the Grand Jury's return- is that no bill was found against George Aldrich, the young Fourth and Hartman streets grocer who, was charged with robbing the house of Mrs. Dillon on Hartman street, some time ago, all the proof indicating that Mr. Aldrich was unjustly charged. " . Sudden Death. Mrs. Mary Hurley, wife of Michael Hurley, residing at Bridge avenue and Park Place, died suddenly this morning. She was as well as usual, getting breakfast for the family and putting up the dinner for one son, who works in Philadelphia. About 6.30 o'clock in a cheerful voice she called Martin, an adult son, to breakfast and went to the store of Mrs. Wallace, No. 523 Taylor's avenue, where she purchased some soap, it being her purpose to do the family washing fcvday. As she reached the door to come away she reeled and fell, and without a word died in a few minutes. She was taken to her home and the County Physician notified. Deceased was 46 years of age, was regarded as an estimable woman and neighbor, and leaves a family of sixchildren, the youngest fifteen years of age. A Boy Killed While Coasting. Albany, January 16. A little boy named John Doolan, while coasting on High street Saturday afternoon, was run over by a truck and killed. A little girl who was on the sled with him was also run over and injured.

ONE CENT. WMBATIVE RAILROADS HOW WILL IT END? Attempt to Obtain Control of the Camden and Atlantic Railroad. All the competing lines to Atlantic City will, next summer, run excursions to that city at fifty cents a ticket. The Philadelphia and Atlantic City (narrow gnage) have been doing this for several seasons, even while the other lines were charging one dollar, but the latter have now deter mined to do the same thing, and future rates to -the City by the 6aHMis( be unprecedented for cheapness. lhe undercurrent of all this is the ue- sire upon the part of the West Jersey and Atlantic C'ily Railroads to obtain control of the Camden and Atlantic Railroad for the Purpose of controling Atlantic City traffic and freight, the Philadelphia and Atlantic City (narrow guage) Railroad being thought to be only a secondary con- sideration. To this end, friends of the' West Jersey and Atlantic Railroad have for some time past been quietly baying up alt available stock of the Camden and , Atlantic, paying in some instances very' high rates for it Stock on the latter road is worth about twenty-five dollars per share, and yet a prominent citizen of . Camden and a director of the road, who desires secresy regarding his name, was offered as high a price as fifty-two dollars per share if he would sell, but declined the honor with the remark that the , road ' of which he was a director would fight the West Jersey road to the bitter end rather, than accept the overtures which had been " made to it One of the overture which the gentleman referred to was the offer on the part of the W. J. and A. C. R. R. 1 to urge the C. and A. R. R. into allowing its stockholders six per cent Interest on . their investment as so much profit" This," one of the officers of the former road, General W. J. Sewell, said the W. J. R.' R. could easily afford to pay because their profits, at the rates they would charge, would be greatly in excess of that per-, " centage. Besides being active in the purchase of C A A. R. R. stock, the competing road -has also been fighting the former in regard to its privileges at Atlantic City, but the former road having a majority of friends there, it is said -they actually compelled the W. J. R. R. to pay f 18.000 for land near that city which is said to be-worth only half that amount An evidence of the feeling between the two roads is made conspicuous by a handbill posted in various places and emanating from the freight department of the Camden and Atlantic Railroad, which state very significantly that "until the Went Jersey Railroad thinks- best to make fresh reductions, the following will be the freight rates from Philadelphia to Atlantic City," etc. etc. : The majority of the shares of. tha Camden and Atlantic Railroad stilt re- . main in the hands of its president and directors, and unless the slight coolness said to be existing - between President Freeman and ex-President Lucas should increase, the - directors feel confident of . holding out to the hut, and at their meeting this Thursday wilt consider it from all its points. But, should the above " named gentlemen be unable to heal their, grievences, as either of them own enough -stock to seal the fate of the railroad by disposing of it to the West Jersey, the future still remains in uncertainty. The, W. J. and A. It R. officials are confident of winning eventually and deny the assertion of the other roau that they will ad-' vance rates to three and four dollars, in the event of obtaining full control of the traffic . ' Plenty of Work. The open winter is favorable to . industrial pursuits, and out door work goes on unimpeded, -At 4he4ron shipyard - of Dialogue & Co., nearly four hundred men are at work, with a'prospect of being busy for some time to come.
