Tom L. Johnson, mayor of Cleve
land, has been granted by tho supremo
court of Ohio permission to file a peti
tion in mandamus against the state
board of equalization oh railroads.
Mayor Johnson seeks to compel the re
assessment of the railroad property at
a valuation based upon tho market
value of its securities. Mr. Johnson
contends that the railroads of Ohio
which are on the assessment list for
$117,000,000 are appraised at only 23
per cent of their actual value, while
real estate in Ohio is appraised at CO
per cent of its real value. He asks
that railroad valuation be increased so
as to brjng them up to a GO per cent
basis. This would make the railroad
assessment $356,000,000 instead of

Martin Hogan, the well-known Irish
man, recently died in the city of Chi
cago. The Chicago Tribune says of
Hogan: "Martin Hogan was convicted
in Ireland in 1866, with John Boyle
O'Reilly and five others, on a charge
of ,treason. The seven men joined tha
English army in 1863, intending to
Fenianlze it. They were detected, tried
for treason, and sentenced to bo shot.
The sentences were commuted to life
imprisonntent and later reduced to
twenty years of penal servitude in Van
Dieman's Land, the English penal col
ony in Australia. In the spring ' of
1869 the whaling ship Catalpa was
fitted out to rescue the convicts, but
before its arrival O'Reilly had escaped
from the island in an open boat. Ho
was picked up by another American
whaler and brought to this country.
Hogan and his five companions wero
