X. Hansen, a Urge ptopert. owner In the

common pleas court to enjoin the collection
of special taes ases-ed against his prop
erty for Improving James street from Cen
tral avenue to tho Kan river The street
was recurbed and repjcd during the past
One of the pilnclpal allegations In th"
petition and the one which the attornejs
for the plaintiff will rcl on ery strongly
is that the paeinent was placed above
When the contractors beK.in work It wa
discovered that tho ilctiopolltan htieet
rallwaj tracks weio above guide on tho
street from one end to the other. The
Journal announced this fact exclusively at
the time, and stated that some of the
piopeity owners would probably enjoin the
collection of taxes for tho repalrlrg oC the
street unless the pavement was put down
to grade. If this was dono the Metropoli
tan company would have been compelled
to spend several thousand dollars In low
ering Its tracks. Hie city olllcials held
a conference with tho olllcers of tho com
pany and an agreement was entered Into
whereby the company paid the cost of
paving eighteen Inches on cither side of
the tracks. In consideration foi this the
council agreed not to try and compel the
company to lower its tracks and also had
the street paved to the level of the track"
In some places, ncoidlng to tho lepott of
City Engineer Ullls, tho tracks are about
four Inches above grade and as a conse
quence the street paving Is also that much
higher than It should be
Colonel True, who filed the suit. Elated
that the council had no right to enter Into
any agreement as It did with the company
and furtheimore, In his opinion, not only
would tho collection of tho taxes be per
n anentl enjoined, but that tho propeity
llders have grounds for damages. He
ued that several other slmllai suits
would be tiled It Is understood that tho
"Tonler Packing Company will lie one of
the parties to enjoin the city ffom collect.

of Mr. Holt are required. The board nt
first cmplojed him and later decided to

people's money tied up in tho stilts and
the board cannot, tho cltlrcns claim, af
ford to run any chances by falling to
employ Mr. Holt to assist In tho prosecu
