ASSET FOR DEFUNCT BANK
Final Chapter in Case of Hawkinson
George C. Jewett, receiver, and W. E.
McCroskey, attorney for the Palouse
State bank, defunct, went to Spokane
yesterday to make settlement in the
Boone-Hawkinson case, wherein M. J.
Hawkiuson sues H. M. Boone et a!, to
recover property on the Columbia river,
which was deeded to Boone in payment
for stock in the Palouse State bank. It
i<* understood that settlement will be
effected by the Hawkinsons accepting a
small portion of the land, the remainder
going to the bank. An escrow deed to
the land, a 200-acre tract, together with
the Boone home in this city, was made
to the bank by H. If. Boone, and upon
the settlement of this case will be deliv
ered, adding the value of these properties
to the assets of the bauk.—Palouae Re
public, Feb. 3.
This agreement has since been carried
out, Mrs. Hawkinson getting 20 acres of
land on the Columbia river, 180 acres
going to Boone, Boone having previously
placed all his property in escrow for the
benefit of depositors of the defunct bank.
The whereabouts of Hawkinson is not
known. Warrants are out for his arrest.
This chapter settles the cause of com
plaint between Boone and Hawkineon, it
being a victory for Boone and for the
benefit of the creditors of the defunct
Palouse State Bank. The land in ques
tion is said to be worth $100 an acre.
