If the matter comes tc a point, the factory will be located near the Electric Light station. The County CommiNsloners full Of Business. The County Commissioners met Monday to hear complaints about the assessment of real estate. It appears that it was understood by many that the values were to be cut down 20 percent. In some town ships this was done; in others the cut was greater and still others the cut was not more than 3 per cent. This, as is readily seen, does not equalize the burdens over the county. In No. 6 the assessed value of real estate is not cut down more than $2,000 in the aggregate, while in No. 8 the decrease is about $35,000. This is the matter that held Lhu attention of the Commissioners on Monday and Tuesday. They want to distribute the burdens of taxa'ion over the county in equal measures. They, the Commissioners are con servative and just men, and whatever they do, will be right so far as they are able to make it. A Very Sad Man. A Standard reporter met up with Rev.

Dr. Payne has in the people of Concord a profound and sincere sym pathizer in this, his hour and time of great sorrow and pain. Lo cunt b Passed Ovei the City.
