Box Party.
Last evening a box party In honor
of Mtrs. Canby and Miss Powell, who
Is here as the representative of the
dicted it, saying that he was not dl
tr viding with any of the officials but
0 that he was compelled to make pres
0 ents to them. This statement has
d been emphatically denied by those in
r charge of the shops and roundhouse.,
'f who disclaim any connection with
- Munro, except in a legitimate way
e when additional men were needed. On
Ithe other hand the Greek laborers are
said to have made sworn affidavits
r that in every case where one of their
number failed to pay Munro his fee,
the man was immediately discharged
B and another Greek sent by Munro to
take Ills place.
The Greeks are, in almost every case,
i unfamiliar with the English language,
and the charge that a roundhouse offi
cial is acting in co-operation with
Munro in the extortion is probably the
result of their imaginings, based on
suggestions made by interepreters who
are opposed to the methods adopted by
Munro.
The complaining witnesses are:
Nick Anastos, George Kaimiamopolls,
Peter Dimopulus, George Megos, Tom
Kivlumbuli., Peter Christ, James Dan
askos, Jamea Strathopulos, Georgas
Funtas, Gust Ellopulos, George Mitl
ver, Peter Kuriampalis and Gust Mit
ros. All of these men have been dis
charged from positions in either the
shops or roundhouse and also make the
claim that Munro, some time last Oc
tober, called on them and demanded
the sum of $50 as a special assess.
iment. This money was paid, but lat
er, when another call was made on
their purses, they refused to meet the
demand and lost out with the North

The matter is to be fully aired in the
district court on April 6.

SEEKS TO RECOYEF
TAX EBTS
SUITS ARE FILED AGAINST SIC
FLATHEAD COMPANIES BY
COUNTY ATTORNEY.
Special to The Dally Missoullan.
Kallspell, March 19.-Suits against
the Big Blackfoot Milling company
and tlih Julius Neils Lumber company
were filed in court here this afternoon
by County Attorney Stevens to recover
taxes alleged to have been illegally re
funded to the defendants by the county
commissioners. This action follows
an agitation which contemplated the
bringing of suits against the commis
sioners, Main and Lewis, but with
which the county attorney refused to
identify himself, contending that as
county attorney it was his duty to de
tend the officials instead of to act
against them. Then it was decided to
bring, the suits against the companies.
The present procedure grows out of
in incident which arose at the time
Af the equalization of the county tax
roll of Flathead county. The two big
lompanies contended that their prop
erty had been assessed out of propor
:ion to the assessments upon other
property of the same nature, and
arked a reduction in the amount of
heir taxes. Attorneys were brought
nto the matter by the companies and
he commissioners were led to believe
hat unless a reduction was made the
ompanleA would refuse to pay their
axes and enjoin the officials from
elling their property under the de
Inquency provision. Yet it was de
Ided that no direct reduction could
'e granted without Inviting other com
anies and property holders to come
orward with similar claims for reduc
ions. This contingency was avoided
,y the payment of the full assessments
nd the granting of rebates after the
ayment.
Now it Is contended that the com
alssioners had no' authority to grant
he rehbates, hence the company re
elved money which does not belong
it, but to the county. Making this
basis for his suit-that the money
Phated is the county's--the county at
irney has filed his suits.
IRETURNS INICTM ENT
AGAINST ONE
Los Angeles, Marcli 19.-The special
grand jury sworn in by Judge James
this morning returned an indictment
at 5 o'clock this afternoon after be
ing in session five hours. Under the
direction of Judge James the name of
the man Indicted is to be kept secret
until an arrest has been made.
The only witnesses examined today
were Joseph Durand, an alleged lieu
tenant of Nick Oswald, who was with
the jury two hours and a half this
morning, and Edwin T. Earl, publisher
of the Evening Express, who was with
the jury all afternoon.
Judge James fixed the ball of the
Indicted man at $5,000, upon the ad
vice of the district attorney.
There is reason to believe that the
indictment found is against Nick Os
wald, who has been located at Tia
Juana, just over the border in Mex
ico, where he fled from this city after
the order of Judge James calling for
a special grand jury investigation of
the city administration under former
Mayor A. C. Harper, had been issued.
Detective Browne of the distriot at
torney's staff is now in Tia Juana.

I TOWN OVERWHELMED
BY WATER
BIG TANKS AT PARKERSBURG, W.
VA., BURST, AND TWO PER
SONS ARE DROWNED.
Parkersburg, W. Va., March 19.
Two persons were killed, three others
probably fatally injured and many
more slightly hurt and 10 or more
houses completely wrecked and 40
more badly damaged when two large
water tanks supplying the city with
water burst early this morning.
The dead:
Mr. and Mrs. Walter Waggle.
The bodies were found in the ruins
or their home.
The seriously injured:
Mrs. John Maloney, both legs bro
ken, hurt internally: probably will die.
Mrs. Kate Karness, invalid, badly
bruised and shocked; may die.
Clara Jones, colored; probably will
die.
The immense stream of released
water rushed down Prospect hill,
sweeping everything before it. Houses
were swept into the street and the
residents were knocked from their
beds. One whole family was carried
down a street 70 yards, their house
being torn almost to pieces, yet all
escaped except one girl, who suffered
a broken collar bone.
The two tanks contained the entire
city supply of water, and a famine is
now imminent. The damage will
amount to between $200,000 and $250,
000. St. John's Lutheran church was
almost completely demolished, but
through its sacrifice many lives were
spared and much more damage pre
vented, as it was directly in the path
of the water. The breaking of the
tanks is believed to have been caused
by some miscreant.
