CIT Y NEWS. TAX DODGER'S END v Sheriff's Force Preparing a Little "*- * l Drama With a Eustie L Victim in It. He'll Be Parted From Ninety Dollars to the Joy of the Galleries. "Robert Dickson's finish or how to deal With the country tax dodger" is the title of a brand new melodrama now being composed in the Hennepin county sheriff's office. Charles Budd. a deputy sheriff, 1B the origin ator of the title and the plot, while Arthur Jones, chief deputy, is putting the finishing touches on the manuscript and will appear in the star part Robert Dickson, of Green wood, is cast for the part of arch conspira tor and is doomed to dire catastiophe to be administered amid the applause of a rlghteou3 public. Originator Budd has reasons for his inven tion. He was detailed to visit some of the country tax-payers who had neglected to pay their personal taxes of 1901. Among these was Robert Dickson, supposed to be the proprietor of two farms in the town of Greenwood rind also the owner of several good sized farm mortgages. The officer vis ited the Dickson place and discovered that Dickson had moved his herd of cattle into Canada. He said also that he had disposed of all his personal property with the exception of the mortgages. "I won't pay that tax and there is no way you can collect it," was the delinquent's emphatic statement to Mr. Budd in answer to a polite request for about $90. "You know me and you might as well give up the idea of getting It. I haven't anything you can get hold of." An extended argument followed. "When hard pressed as to his mortgages Dickson said his father was also named Robert Dick son, that he lived in England and left the Bheriff to Infer that it was English money in vested in the farm mortgages. "Well that may be so and it may not," remarked the deputy. "Anyway, I think you'd better pay. We will find a way to .get this money, you see if we don't." With that the interview ended. Budd re turned from his trip about noon yesterday and is busy planning to bring the delinquent to time. Other delinquents over the county are now practically rounded up, and the $6,600 col lected from this source breaks all records. RUN DOWN AND KILLED Mrs. Mary Adams Hit by a Passen ger Train.

Nye of the public af fairs committee of the Commercial club has given out ft statement In regard, to the proposed purchase of the block oppo-' site the courthouse for an auditorium. He says in substance: "The committee of the Commercial club has considered the request of the citizens' auditorium committee that said committee shall take charge of the work of acquiring the block opposite the courthouse on Fifth street, and that it shall also urge the city council to sell the bonds authorized to the amount of $150,000 for constructing an auditorium. "After careful investigation, the com mittee decides that it is unwise at this time to press this matter for the follow ing reasons: "With the improvements to be made on the exposition auditorium the city will have an auditorium which will In a larjte measure supply the public need for such a hall. "The committee Is of the opinion that it would be unwise for the city to increase its bonded debt for the purpose of build ing a publio hall at a time when so many improvements of greater public necessity are demanded, as is the case at the pres ent time. "The acquisition of the site selected by the citizens' committee, while accep table to many citizens, is opposed by a large number. This site, were it accep table to all, would cost approximately $225,000. . "The committee is ready to push any acceptable plan whenever the necessity is sufficiently great to awaken public spirit in the project, and whenever a location can be agreed upon, which will meet with gen eral approval." DUNS THE COMMISSION County Board Asks the City Council Pay the City Hall Heating BUI. Chairman F. B. Barney ot the board of county commissioners complains that the city is "slow pay." He has informed the board of courthouse and^ city hall com missioners that the city is behind in its share of the expenses for heating and lighting the joint public building. The county board has instructed Secretary Condit to notify the city council that if the account is not squared before Aug. 1 the city will be deprived of heat and light. The commission expected to award a contract for a stone sidewalk around the city hall at yesterday's meeting, but as the bids ran from $1.35 per square yard upwards, action was deferred. Secretary Condit was directed to notify Dominlck & Dominick, the highest- bid- ders on the courthouse bonds, that $150 - 000 of the issue had been deposited in the Northwestern bank subject to the orders of the firm. APPROVED BY EXPERTS Secretary Latham of the Horticultural Society Indorses The Journal's Flower Show. In the July number of the Minnesota Horticulturist, Secretary A. W. Latham of the State Horticultural Society says: "Minneapolis Is to" have a flower show the first week in August, under the aus pices of The Minneapolis Journal, of a sort that would be ah advantage for any community to copy after. Premiums to the amount of several hundred dollars are offered by various business men in the cfty, mainly florists and seedsmen, and any one Is allowed to compete, there be ing a special class for children. Such an exhibition will have a marked tendency to increase the Interest In flower culture and do its part toward the larger decora tion of the homes of the city. Why Isn't it feasible to have such, an exhibition in the smaller towns In the state? There is already a great Interest in flower culture and the ornamenting of home grounds, and such a show would greatly Increase it." It's Easy To Increase your business during va cation months.
