Twenty - ninth. Ward Eent Payers Will Organize. WHO PAYS THE TAXES? THEY ASK A Meeting to Be Held To - night to Form the Flatbush Renters' Association. Two Young Women Who Say They Were Drugged First Dance of the New Utreoht Exempt Firemen Sudden Death of R. R. Hirsh. The rent payers In the Twunty - nlnth ward are affronted, according to Henry Seavers, who is one of them, because they were not invited to become members of the Flatbush Taxpayers' association, which Is to be permanently organized this evening. This evening, at the call of Mr. Seavers, they will meet at Snyder's hall, corner of Locust and Grant streets, to voice their sentiments in the matter and form an organization of their own. The Flatbush Renters' association may co - operate with the taxpayers' and it may not. However, those who have set the movement on foot believe that the two organizations should be welded together and form an Indissoluble union. "Who pays the taxes, anyhow?" said. Mr. Seavers, with much feeling, to an Eagle reporter. "Is it not true that when taxes go up the rent, goes up, too? The landlord doesn't pay the taxes, by a long shot the renter foots the bill every time. I was amazed, therefore, when, at the meeting In the town hall last Thursdaycsnlght, not a word was 3aid about the rent payers. If the taxpayers are going to form an exclusive organization, all right; let them go ahead; but they will find out their mistake later on. We have rights, too, which must be looked after in fact, as I have already said, we are the real taxpayers and should have as much to say about public matters relating to the ward as the householders and landlords." "But Is it not a fact that the great majority of the people living in the Twenty - ninth ward own their own homes?" asked the reporter. "That's Just where you are wrong. I know a good many people believe it to be so, but it is a mistake. I know positively that 60 per cent - of the residents" of this ward live in rented houses. Even In Parkvllle, Kensington and Windsor Terrace very few people own their own houses, and that is also true of that section of the ward which lies east of Flatbush avenue, between Canarslo lane and East Broadway. And let me add that the rents are out of ell proportion to the value and the location of the houses. "Now," continued 'Mr. Seavers, with considerable warmth, "I pay W a month rent for a house on Church lane. The house is an old one, and if it stood in Parkvllle it wouldn't rent for $20. Church lane Is not an aristocratic street, by any means; it is unpaved, except between the trolley car rails, but I've got to pay ?20 a month for being within less than ten minutes' walk of Ocean avenue. I tell you It's the high rent we've got to pay that Is retarding the natural growth of the ward, and of course the high rents are caused by high taxes. The renters, therefore, being, as I have said, in the majority, ought not only to have been consulted with regard to forming a taxpayers' association, but let in on the ground floor, and some of the officers selected from their number." NEW UTRECHT FIREMEN DANCE. The Now Utrecht Exempt Firemen's asso - olaieton's first annual reception was held at Ulmer park last night. There was a large company present and the firemen made excellent hosts. About four hundred dancers crowded the dancing room and firemen from all the fire companies in the old towns were there, as well as many old timers from New York and Brooklyn. Red shirts pre - vaired, tfhough there were many blue and,, with the bright costumes of the fa'ilr sex, greatly heightened the effect of Dhe decorated room. President Thomas W. Harris, with Mrs. John J. Barling, led the march, in which 250 took part. The proceeds of the affair Will form the nucleus of a benevolent fund, which the association proposes starting.

Two well dressed and good looking young women, who gave their, names as Minnie Brown and Ida Jones, respectively, but refused to state their adSresses, told a strange story to Justice Steers, In Flatbush, yesterday afternoon, "when they were arraigned on a charge of intoxication. Miss Brown told the judge tharf. they had been drugged in tho back room of a saloon on Dean street, whero she had taken her companion for a glass of wine, because the latter had had a fainting spell. Miss Brown was sure that something had been put In tho wine to render them unconscious, for her friend had sipped no more than a thimbleful out of the glass when she found the taste disagreeable and then handed it to her. Miss Brown, so Bhe said, only took a spoonful of tho contents of tho glasB and then quickly 'put It down and they hurriedly TAXPAYERS' Association OF THE Twenty - Ninth Ward.

FARM LAND TAXATION. A FLATBUSH TAXPAYER'S REPLY TO MR. CASE. To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle: In your Issue of February U, Mr. George C. Case of Brooklyn has a communication relating to the farm land taxation as assessed In the old town of Flatbush, now tho Twenty - ninth ward of the City of Brooklyn. Mr. Case admits that he Is the attorney for some owners of farm lujid In the ward, and It is perfectly natural that he should tudy their !nterest. He has this to say: On Investigation I found that the town of Now Lots annexation act, chapter 385 of tho laws of 1S86, contained the following provision: "For the purposes of taxation the roal estate Included within the territory hereby annexed shall be assessed at the value of the land for agricultural purposes, unless the same shall have been at the time this act shall take efTcct or shall thereafter be divided up into building lots, and a map thereof filed In the office of the retrls - ter of deeds of the county of KlnK or In the oltlce of the board of assessors of the City of Brooklyn, and a sale or sales referring to such map made, or unless the same shall have been otherwise sold as a building lot or used as such." The bill he sent to Mr. Waldo, our representative in the assembly at Albany. Is an entirely different affair, and Mr. Caae must have thought that the taxpayers of Flatbush were as verdant as their grass In summer trlme. Here Is the bill aa sent to Albany by Mr. Case: Introduced by Mr. WaJdo read once and referred to the committee on affairs of cities. An act to provide for the assessment of lands for agricultural purposes, in the Twenty - ninth ward of the City of Brooklyn. The people of the state of New York, represented In senate and assembly, do enact as follows: Section 1. For the purpose of taxation, the assessors of the City of Brooklyn shull assess the real estate situated in the Twenty - ninth ward or the City of Brooklyn at the value of the land for ajrrlcultural purposes, unless the same shall have been at the time this act shall take effect, or shall thereafter be divided up into building lots by tho owners of such real estate, and a map thereof llled In the ofllce of the register of the county of Kings, or In the office of the board of assessors of the City of Brooklyn, and a sale or sales referring to such map made, or unless the same shall have been otherwise sold as a building lot or used as such. Sec. 2. This act shall take effect Immediately. This bill would enable the owner of farm land to hold it as su?h as long as he (the owner) pleased. There Is the difference between the bills. Mr. Cose wishes to have the same assessment In Flatbush on vacant land as they - have In New - Utrecht; he tells the assessors that they must either tax Flatbush the same as Flatlands or lower the other county towns. "Ye gods, what meat doth this man feed on that he hath become so great." The merest tyro would know that Klat - bush is as far ahead In development, Improve ments and values over the other county towns aa New York city is over Hoboken. It is remarkably generous for Mr. Case to offer to be the attorney for the new Taxpayers' association in the Twenty - ninth ward, but under the circumstances It can hardly be expected that the association will accept his offer In Justice to his large clientage among the farm owners. There are not half a dozen farms that are worked In the wliole ward. It does not pay to work them. Farming was given up years ago. The owners of these farms are simply holding their land for a rise in the market, when they will lay it out lit city lots and make fabulous sums, meanwhile making the improvers around them pay all the taxes for them. It is all right for - Mr. Case to put his befit foot forward for his clients, but he oueht not to get the Interests of his farm clients mixed up with the Taxpayers' association. They will have to get along the best way they can and when they want the services of a lawyer they wiil have to find one and pay "him a Just and fair compensation for servloes rendered. This is the business way to do it. A TWENTY - NINTH "TOAH.D TAXPAYER. Flatbush. February 12, 1896. THIRD BENSONHTJRST COTILLON.

Monday made a rousing speech, remarking that when he began to reside in Williamsburg, twenty - five years ago. it had neither temple, orphan asylum, benevolent society, nor synagogue. Now the eastern district had all these, but it had no Hebrew hospital. Ho urged that every one present subscribe or become members of the hospital, in order that they might be able to show something tangible was at the back of the movement when they applied to wealthy people for money. A rousing speech in the same strain was made in English by E. Strahl. A. Flrostone, for the committee, appointed to look out for premises, reported that the committee had visited the residence on St. Marks avenue and found it was admirably suited for hospital purposes. It covers ten lots and tho dimensions of the buildings are 10.rj.2S3 feet.

Captain Silkman spoke first, wel - . coming the members of the Seventh company. Seventh regiment, to Brooklyn, and: expressing the hope that the friendship which; the two companies had so long had for each other would never be broken. He proposed the regimental cheer for the guests and it. was given with a will. I Captain Silkman introduced Captain Dew - ; son, who said that the Seventh company re - 1 membered with pleasure the visit of Company ' G in December, 1894. He and his men had promised to return the visit at the earliest j opportunity. They came to Brooklyn In January of last year, much sooner than they ex - 1 pected, but did not get a chance to call at tho Bedford avenue armory. Captain Dewson; spoke of the clever way in which the members j of the Twenty - third brought a loving cup into j his company room. He asked company G, ' Twenty - third, to accept a gift from Company G, Seventh regiment. As he spoke he , lifted a floral bell which stood on the table' in front of him and disclosed a handsome j bronze statuette, entitled "Pro Patria." Cap - ) tain Silkman accepted the gift from his com - : pany and more cheers were given for Captain ' Dewson and the members of his company, j Colonel Smith, being called upon, spoke J briefly. He said that the soldiers of the Sev - ; onth regiment were always welcome guests in the Bedford avenue armory and expressed i the hope that he would see them there oftener. j General Woodward was the last speaker, j He was a member of G when it was the city ' guard, way back in the fifties and he told tho ! boys something of the military thirty - five and I more years ago. The general said that tho promised entertainment up stairs was far more to the liking of his hearers than speeches and he would not keep them away from it. j In the room above the banquet hall a small ; stage had been erected. Here, from 11:30 to : 1:30 was a vaudeville performance In which a ! number of people took part. Soon after ; the stage show began R. A. Strong of Com - . pany H, Twenty - third, was injured, bon one on the floor of the hall atteniDtaKT' throw a bottle to a friend in the gselery.
