CITY MAKES ANSWER
Admits Indebtedness on
Old Bridge Bonds but
indebtedness to the
part of the amounts are barred nnder
the statutes of limitation, the City of
Little Falls'answer to the town's claim
and complaint was served on E. A.
Kling, its attorney, Wednesday by
City Attorney L. W. Vasaly.
The answer admits that tbe city
wholly failed to make levy in the
years 1903, '03, '04, and '05 for its pro
portionate share of tbe bonds and in
terest, but claims tbat its proportion
ate share in those years is not the
amount claimed paid for by the Town
of Liittle Falls but its proportionate
share of tbe amount based on valua
tion necessary to raise $880 per year,
$480 going for interest and $400 to a
fund to take care of bonds at maturity.
The city claims tbat its proportion
ate share in 1902 based on a valuation
of 11,197,343 should have teen $627.44
instead of $927.31 in 1903, valuation
of $1,220,425, should have been $626.56
instead of $783.57 in 1904, valuation
of $1,190,022, should have been
$642.40 instead of $787.65 and in 1905
valuation of §1,229,964, should have
been $645.92 instead of $645.05.
Counsel for the town claims that the
statute of limitation is to be figured
from tbe time tbe bonds became due
in the year 1908.
Tbe case will accordingly be taken
up at tbe coming term of court.
The other towns involved in tbe
litigation have not as yet served their
answers to the complaints served them
by the Town of Little Falls. Pine
Creek and Mt. Morris have until
August 25 to serve same and Agram
has until August 28.

DEAD MAN'S CLOTHING
Found Tuesday Near Soo
Crossing—Wrote a Con
fession on Wood
Sheriff Frank Armstrong returned
Wednesday from the vicinity of the
Soo crossing south of this city, bring
ing up with him tbe hat. shoes and
stockings, neck-tie and handkerchief,
together with a piece of board on
which was scratched some writing,
supposed to have been the property cf
the unidentified drowned man, who for
a time it was thought was Paul Gen
dro of Bowlus.
W. C. Brockway found these articles
on the Stone land near tbe Soo cross
ing about a mile up-river from where
tbe corpse was found. An empty can
which had contained beans and an
empty bon bon box, bearing the brand
of Sylvester & Nichols were also found
in the vicinity of where tbe above
named articles were found. The man's
coat, if he had one, has not been dis
covered as yet.
That the suicide was connected with
some crime is tbe conclusion formed by
what writing can be made out on tbe
board, wbicb reads "This Clears
Henderson, R. K. Brown. July
1911." Other writing on the board is
The hat is a grey crush, size 1
No. 73565 of the E. A. Mallory &

of the Plymouth Clothing House of St
Paul The shoes were a pair that sold

are black and had been neatly mended

was of blue silk. Slits had been cut
at both ends of it and pieces of hat
bands passed through them, though
for what reason, if
where the articles
were located, tbe brush had been cut,
thereby forming a place to lay on.
The man had his right eye
The sheriff is to send this informa
tion to tbe St. Paul and Minneapolis
authorities and an attempt will be
made to ascertain whether J. Hender
son and R.K. Brown have

TO BE RE-ASSESSED
Little Falls, Royalton, Two
Rivers, Swan River, Buh
Agram and Pier*
Auditor McNairy, with other andi
ton of the state, was called to St.Paul
Tuesday to meet with the slate tax
commission, the matter of the assess
ment of moneys and credits at the May
assessment being the matter to he gone
Several counties and cities have
already been ordered to re-assess, and
a re-assessment is now ordered by the
tax commission in parts of Morrison
county which includes the city of
Little Falls, village of Koyalton, and
the towns of Two Rivers, Swan
River, Agram, Buh and Pierz. There
were no returns made from the last
four towns named. The work will
start very soon.
The county assessment on this item
totaled 1387,389, the city coming in
for 1230,166 of this— the great bulk of
this being returned by one concern.
Following is some of the assessments
in other cities.

levy in 1906, valuation being
826, aLd levy should have been $645.04
instead of $1,022.96, and of which
only $363 05 was raised, leaving a
balance due of $363.05 for that year.
Also in 1907, valuation being 71,243,
732, and levy should have been $653.60
instead of $723.91, and of which only
$497.48 was raised, leaving balance of
$158.12 due for that year. It was
further claims tbat no demand was
made on the city by the town for pro
portionate share of levies made by the
Town of Little Falls in 1902, '03, '04,
and '05, and tbe six years statute of
limitation before commencing action
barred those amounts from collection.
The city therefore asks the district
court to find judgment in favor of
plaintiff for $521.17 only, with interest
at 6 per cent per annum on $362.05
from January 1, 1906 and on $158.12
from January 1, 1907, which -figured
up totals $679.30. The amount
sued for by the town of Little Falls is
Tbe towns will be
groups as follows: City of Little Falls
and Royalton. Two Rivers and Swan
River and Agram, Buh and Pierz.
Three assessors who will be paid $6.50
per day have been selected by the tax
commission, and their names will be
given out shortly.
MORRISON CO. WINS
Judge Nye Holds Plaintiffs
Not Entitled to
Morrison county won in two ditch
decisions handed down by Judge C. A.
Nye of the District court last Saturday
and received here by the clerk of court
yesterday, the cases of C. A. Lind
bergh vs. the County of Morrison and
F. A. Lindbergh vs. the County of
Morrison being dismissed and* defen
dant being allowed to recover for costs
and disbursements of tbe actions. Both
of these were court cases and were
heard by J"dge Nye on June 15, 1911.
Allowing that defects were made in
the preliminary work for the estab
lishing ot Ditches No. 5 and No. 8
the ditches complained of by the above
plaintiffs respectively, the court holds
tbat the evidence introduced failed to
show tbat defects had resulted to the
prejudice of plaintiff nor does it show
tbat they had no knowledge of the con
struction of the ditches nor tbat their
lands did not benefit substantially by
tbe ditches as actually constructed,
and further that plaintiffs did not
take any action to prevent the con
struction of tbe ditches, nor did they
appeal from the assessments, and that
they are not entitled to tbe relief de
manded in tbe complaints nor to any
relief. The cases therefore being
in amended notes, the court states
tbat the case of State vs. Johnson, 111
Minn, 255, a case involving collection
of taxes for construction of Ditch No.
8, was decisive, and tbat bad the
opinion been filed when Judge Taylor
rendered his decision in tax proceed
ings referred to in plaintiff's amended
reply, he would undoubtedly have fol
lowed it. It is further convinced that
adjudication in former proceeding does
not control in present case. The ditch
tax for each of the ten years is col
lected in separate proceedings and is
subject in each proceeding to any
defense available witbout reference to
That these actions are not direct at
tacks on ditch taxes but actions to
remove tbe cloud to plaintiffs' titles
to their lands created by filing of
ditch liens and that the validity of
the tax can probably not be tested in
this form of action but must be at
tacked in proceedings involving col
lection of tax itself.
All proceedings on the part of defen
dant in both cases are stayed forty
days from date of findings.

Royalton and Bow lus Banks
Will Pay But 50 to
60 Per Cent
St. Paul, Aug. 15.—Depositors in
the defunct state banks at Royalton
and Bowlus, probably will lose from
20 per cent to SO per cent of the money
they placed in the institutions for safe
keeping. This foot became known to
day, although strenuous efforts have
been made to keep the status of the
banks under cover.
The greatest loss, unless some un
known and nnforseen asset appears
probably will be to depositors in the
the (bank at Royalton. The deficit there
aggregates approximately $87,000. The
bank was organized with a capital
stock of $10,000, and stockholders are
liable for double the amount of their
foldings. Even if an assessment of
100 cents, the full amount allowed!
under the law, be levied, the deficiency
would not be met. Examination of the
bank showed tbat the total deposits
amounted to $109,539.02 at the time
At the bank at Bowlus, tbe defi
ciency is approximately $14,000. This
bank, too, was organized with capital
stock of $10,000. The deposits aggre
gated at the time it closed $69,512.96.
Should an assessment of 100 cents on
the dollar be levied on tbe stockholders,
for double their holdings, as provided
for by law, the. discrepancy probably
could be met. It is feared, however,
that in both banks are some stock
holders who are not "good" for the
amount they are liable.
Suits are being prepared to place the
bank in the bands of receivers. It is
supposed that the court will order
double assessment of stockholders at
once to meet deficits.
Pioneer Press (16): The depositors
of the First State Bank of Bowlus will
not lose any of their money, Mr. Chase
thinks, but the depositors of the State
Bank of Royalton may lose from 20 to
50 per cent.

two and a half weeks ago, and tbat of
tbe 165 growers tbat bad signed con
tracts for the raising of the pickle
makers and marketing them at the lo
cal station, but half had brought some
in. Up to the first of the week about
700 bushels of No. 1 cucumbers (from
1 to 4 inches in length) and 300
bushels of tbe No. 2 (from 4 to 5
inches in length) had been brought in.
THE HAY SITUATION1AEROPLANE fLIGHTS
It bad been the intention of tbe com
pany to manufacture from 600 to 700
barrels of dill pickles here this season,
but a visit by Mr. Barr last Sunday to
tbe eight persons with whom contracts
had been made to raise the dill needed
showed tbat practically no dill crop
would be secured, owing to the dry
ness of the first ot the season.
As tbe company is unable to have
the dill shipped up here, just enough
having been grown in the vicinity of
the other stations to take care of the
home crop, the company has decided
not to manufacture any dill pickles
here this year. Last season 140
barrels of dill pickles were turned out
from the local station. Tbe cucumbers
received at tbe local station wiil be
salted and Bhipped to the company's
warehouse in Minneapolis.
Big crops of the cucumbers are re
ported at the southern Minnesota sta
