Rolled for First Time Since Their
Return From Dallas.
The Houston Turnveretn bowlers met
last night on the Turnveretn alleys in a
practice contest the first since their re-
turn from the State tournament at Dal-
las. Preceding the rolling there was a busi-
ness session several matters of impor-
tance coming up for discussion. It was
decided to have a new lnterturnverelm
league and hIx teams were chosen the
members of each being so selected that
each team possesses relatively the
strength of the others. Taking a general
average there is but a few points differ-
ence m the asrgregate scores of tle men
constituting each team
The teams as sele ted for the league
and which will start bowling the first
Tuesday in October are as follows:
Hilly Leopold coptalnu Oreen. Schwel-
kart. II. Telschow and Schneider

L Warren Mci.elland and Keen.
Henry Aibreii.t. captain; M Knodel

During fKe course of the meeting an
article published In Sunday's Post regard-
ing the treatment accorded the Houston'
bowlers In Dallas came up for consider-
able discussion and a committee con-
sisting of H M Rainwater Charles
Kuhlman and W W Schmidt was ap-
pointed to draft a statement disclaiming
all responsibility for this article on the
part of the Turnvereln bowlers
The committee immediately got to work

It seemed to be the opinion of all that

Will Petition Council to Prevent
Bloolring at Hardy Street Cross-
inij Railroad's Statement
Members of the North Bind Improve-
ment club are complaining about what
they call very annoying conditions at the
Hardy street crossing of the Southern Pa-
clflo yards. President Collins of the club
said yesterday that the making up of
trains by the large switch engines of the
railroads causes the crossing to be
blocked for unreasonable periods. There
was not so much cause for complaint he
said when the smaller switch engines
were In service because the railroad gen-
erally had two of them at work on a
single train and they got through quicker
but now that the larger locomotives are
in service only one Is used to the train
and it takes twice as long to make it up.
Mr Collins slated that a petition for
relief will be presented to the city council
and falling to get relief from that source
agitation will be commenced In that sec-
tion of the city for a tunnel for vehicles
and pedestrians under the tracks.
CAN BE EASILY REMEDIED.
"Regarding the alleged interference of
our switch engines with traffic on the
Hardy street crossing In the Fifth ward "
said W. G. Van Vlcck. vice president and
manager of the Texas and New Orleans
railroad to a Post representative Tuesday
afternoon "and the complaint that it is
Impossible to learn the names of the
engineers and trainmen In order to make
a complaint against them in the ordinary
way I wish to state that It is a very
easy matter for any one to obtain the
number of the engine or engines which
blockade the crossing and If such num-
bers are reported to this office we would
quickly be able to And the names of the
crews which man them.
"Our rules regarding the blockading of
crossings are very positive and we
discipline iUr men whenever we catch
them violating our rules of the ordinances
tf the city. No formal complaint has
been made to us of the Hijrdy street
crossing for over a year. Any time such
reports are received by us toey receive
our prompt and immediate attention."

At the meeting of the city council ol
Houston Hlgh(s last night the tax'ratj
for the present year 'was fixed
cents being a reduction of 121 cents
compared with last year's rate. The ac-
tion was taken on receipt of the report
of the board of equalisation showing tha
property valuations as fixed by that body
to aggregate 82.456221 this year as agaiaet
16211081 last year making an Increase In
values for the present year of 8834140.
The board of equalization was composed
of John T. Boyle W. V. Cox and T. H.

that was filed with City Secretary Dur-
"1. We have after some thirteen ses-
sions concluded our labors examined
and given our approval to the tai roim
for the current year. In the prosecution
of our work we have known no man
or Institution but have sought to the
fullest extent possible to equalise' the
burden of taxation. Fully 98 per cent
of the taxpayers who appeared before us
after ascertaining the figures affecting
their property expressed the utmost satis-
faction with our work. We sought to

In the Heights has in years gone by
been valued at ridiculously low figures
for taxing purposes and while we hava
not sought to enroll same this year at
anything above from tio to 70 per cent of
its value we have endeavored to bring
about absolute equality in valuations as
far as It lay In our powe to do so. lt-
ls a matter of common knowledge that
realty values In the Heights are steadily
advancing and that even during the pre-
i ceding twelve months a substantial ad
vance along this line has resulted.
"4. It Is further of common knowledge
that building material and labor ranged
far lower on January 1 1&08 than was
the case on January 1 1907 and In ap-
preciation of this fact and In Order to
avoid the charge of discrimination we
added generally 10 per cent to valuations
fixed on dwelling and mercantile improve-
ments last year and adopted the total as
our figures for this year. By this course
we feel that the advance on bath realty
