Assessor Dalton's office was thronged • with property-owners and the representa •. tive- of corporations yesterday, all striving to ascertain why the assessment values of • their holdings had been raised and trying j to convince Mr. Dalton that previous officials had placed the figures about right. • The Assessor listened to their stories and plaints with unvarying courtesy, but in every instance showed he was familiar with the properties under discussion and that his figures had been based on reliable information or actual knowledge rather than guesswork.

When they began to drop their speed was too great to admit of noting their descent from the battery. The charge used in the first fire was sixty pounds of prismatic powder, with a pro jectile weighing 800 pounds. The mortars were elevated to 60 deg. and were ranged to carry 6000 yards. *.''.'
