The persons! property of the atreet rail
way company ana assessed by tbe city at
$1,300,000, which on a 40 per rent basis
would make tbe actual value of the prop
erty In the city $3,250,000. Tax Commie
loner Fleming ssys thst at least 10 per
cent of this total should be added to rep.
resent the value of the company's prop
erty outside the city end within the county,
making a total of $3,575,000 as a basis for
the county assessment. One-sixth of $$.

lu the case of the gaa company Tax
Commlsaloaer Fleming says that, consider
ing tbe evidence gives by th ga company
officials themselves at the recent hearing. It
would be fslr to add $350,000 to represent
the value of that concern's property out

A to the water company the tax commis
sioner say ther Is evidence on record
to warrant adding 60 per cent to the city's
valuation or that property to represent
the company's Interest la Florence, South

think 10 per cent ought to be added to
the telephone company city asaeasment

Lake by Water Which Galaa
Fully $25,000 damage from water was sus
tained st Haydec Bros.' stors during tbe
fierce rsln of Thursdsy night. Loose pieces
or board which had been left on the flat
root were washed by the flood into tbe es
capes to tbe mater spouts, which were thus
quickly clogged. Having no other mean,

from the eecapes st tbe edges, going in be

it soon broke through the plastering, flood
ing the top floor Inches deep.
The top floor is tbe stock room and the
trouble occurred directly over thst portion
fronting oa Sixteenth street gives over to
shoes and uotions and furnishing. Damage
aggregating easily $15,000 was done here,
a immense new stock had Juat been re

here, too, great damage was done. AH the

carpeting was wetted. There the water
atopped. not getting through the second
Th trouble was discovered aooa after
tbe pelting rain began 1st in th after
noon, and at 6; 45 fifty men were working
frantically to check tb damage. Thirty
huge tub and fifty 'bucketa and scoop
hovel were hurried to the stock room,
where the water was scooped from tbe floor
and thrown from the windows by tub
fuls. Meanwhile other men were cover
ing the sucks of goods with oilcloth sheets,
and when meat of the water had been taken
from tb floor the rest was sopped up
with mops and sponges.
When this work wss done the force was
reduced, but Ave men worked all night
at the task. Friday morning a score or so
of employee was at work segregating the
soaked goods. Tards and yaros of lacea,
ribbona and scores of boxes of handker
chiefs and underwear, besides art goods
snd toilet srtlcles and other thinga innu
merable were In the Hat.
Tbe roof Itself did not leak, aa it was
fully repaired two months' sgo. and th
roofers assert that at the time they re
moved every piece of aocd and foreign
matter up there, ao tbey are not to blame.
Proprietors of tbe store, therefore, think
that airing crews of some of the vsrlous
