Six objectors-to 21 raises, In property values for assessrrient pur- pcees appeared before the city council sittine Tuesday morning as a board, of review^ and two valuations were lowered from the figures set at a meeting two weeks ago. Th<> E. J. Murtash home, returnet by the assessor at $7200, hod been raised to $9000 by the board, al which figure it had been assessed In past years. This was dropped to $8500, after J. W. Sullivan appeared in behalf of Mr. Murtagh and objected. The C. A. Samson home had been returned at $il'500 by the assessor but was raised to J1SOO by the boarc The figure was reduced to $1700 af ter a hearing. Mr. Samson said th house had been assessed at $120 for several years, but that Assesso Beardsley thought.that was'too lov and suggested the increase to'$1500 Mr. Samson agreed, but objected t the still higher valuation, suggestln that an increase'from $1200 to $180 in one year was a pretty stiff boos Decrease of Values Alleged. Other objectors who appeared, c had someone appear for them, wer Leona Bartholomew, Julius H'abe korn, and Jennie Venderlinden, bu the figures in each case were kop at the higher figure fixed by th board two weeks ago. Most of the objections were based on alleged big decrease in values of homes as_a result of the depression. It was also argued that valuation of homes should not be increased .for taxing purposes. The board explained, however, that in raising assessments it was only trying to equalize taxpayers' burdens and fix "valuations on an equal basis.

W. Wehler, of the Alona Baseball club, drove to Fairmont Friday afternoon and with epresehtatlves from Albert Lea and 'alrmont discussed reorganization his season of an Iowa-Minnesota cague. ••• . Members of the ball team In a meeting voted against joining the eague on the theory that expense >t the long jumps between towns would be too heavy, and other ex; penses would take too much of the gate receipts. The restriction of Algona Markets PAIR GET $58 ATLUMBERYARD AND ELEVATOR playing only league teams on Sundays only, rather than any other .earn during the •week, was also a detriment, in the belief of the players. Algona Asked Last Tear. Algona was asked to join last year, but did not do so. Mankato, Bsthervllle, and Sherburn are now :alklng of joining with Algona, Fairmont, and Albert Lea in such a league. Estherville, however, influenced by the Spencer club with an all-salaried team, wants to play independent ball . with non-league teams and use an all-salaried team to compete with Spencer. League rules limit salaried players to four to a team, and also limit play to Sunday league games. Mankato was not represented at the meeting, -but It was understood that Ma.nkato would join the league, and Sherburn is expected to fall in line when that town's club holds its annual meeting this week-end. Director Pool, now of Algona, was manager of the Sherburn team for several years. Team Deposit Is Recjiiirecl.

The team will practice again next Sunday with a group of the boys who are taking junior league training under Aubrey Bonham, high school coach.
