Tim new committee of twenty-five on Hie public hospital project met at Jorgensen's coffee house Friday evening, and after full discussion appointed a committee consisting of Dr. II, II. Wilcox, S. Strauss, A. Wiegar.d, W. A. Morin and ll. G. Day to draft and submit to the entire committee a basis and plan of proc* dure. This committee after a deliberate session has prepared the following plan, and it will be submitted at a meeting of the committee of thirty to be held at the Hall House parlors this, Wednesday, evening: -Vamo Albert Ix?a Hospital. Title of the Property: lo bs vest d under a proper trust deed in the names of the presidents. respectively, of the First National Bank and the Albert Lea National Bank, of Albert Lea, and their successors in office, to acta-trustees under the dlr» eliou of the board of managers. Board of Managers: The board of managers shall consist of thirty members residents of Albert Lea, men and women, to be elected by all persons who have pecuniarily contributed to establishing and the maintenance of the hospital, each contributor betag entitled to on* vote. Members shall be elected to serve as follows: Ten of each for terms of one, two and three years, the respective terms to be determined at the first election by lot. After that members shall be elected to serve three years. All vacancies shall be filled by the board. Organization: The board of managers shall be organized by Hie election from their uurnber of a president, vice president, secretary and treasurer, whose manner of election and terms shall be determined by the board. Bowers of the Board: The Board shall have control of the hospital premises and property, and the management and direction of the hospital and all Its allairs. On the basis of the foregoing propositions and in consideration of the benefits to be conferred by the acquisition and maintenance of saki hospital, we. the undersigned, subscribe and agree to pay to said board of managers, their treasurer or other person or persons whom they may duly designate, the sums respectively set opposite our names. Provided, however, that said subscriptions and each of the same shall be null and void and not collectable unless the total amount of the subscriptions shall fully equal the sum of $6,500. The committee on organization are earnest in their determination to proceed with the project, and the sentiment almost universally prevails that it is of the highest importance to make the undertaking a success. It is, in fact, confidently affirmed that it can, must and shall be done, and it seems to be iii the right hands to carry it forward to a gratifying consummation. It is urgently requested that every individual member of the committee attend the meeting at the Hall House this evening. : Behertsoa. W N. IfohiUMH L-l ...__ ; R- ll.

Exhibited by the List of Personal Property Taxes. We herewith give a grist of person- | a1 property taxes due March I, and a study aud comparison of the amounts due from individual taxpayers In Albert Lea, especially, will be found interesting. It will be seen that the property of those which is in sight, which ii used in actual business; the property of those who compose the life and energy aud enterprise of the city, and who work the hardest, carries the heaviest burdens. Take, for instance, the punting offices. Com- j pored with the taxes of many who are well known to have ten times or more ’ than the value of either printing establishment, each office pays double or more what it justly should. Other instance are jet more flagrant, and a1-, ready th* re is great indignation among, victims at the manifest unfairness. Many pronounce it no less than legal-* ized robbery. Both assessor Hewitt and the city board of equalization are blamed for the partiality, the evidentt injustice and the hardship of the undue assessment, and it will be strange1* if it does not create an uproar before^ tile next assessment that will compel a more equitable apportionment of the burdens of taxation.    t ti LONDON.
