Oct. ?..-The annual Red Cross meeting of Cardston Is called for S p.m. Friday next In the Court House Mr. E. N". Barker, the untiring secretary and chief worker in tho Red Cross has posted notices to this effect. At tho recent sittings of the court hero, presidod over by His Honor Judge Jackson, there weio two pppeals from the assessment of the town, viz.: Card Estate represented by S. Williams, executor, and Chief Mountain Cefnotery by H. Mcintosh, tlie manager. Both appeals were granted and values were reduced as requested by the appellants. In the last two years practically all appeals from over assessment have been granted In a similar way. and it has resulted to this point. First, that the town will have to Increase the mills for which all property Is assessed unci run them up to about -it' mills on the dollar or maintain the present valuation. It appears to be a matter of choice with the sen-era I public and all the ratepayers as to which course they pursue, as there are a largo number of them who expert to appeal next year, in fact probably the majority, unless it is mutually agreed otherwise.
