For three years judgments, both
domestic and foreign, have been listed
fortaxalion.it beicg a provision of
the law that they cou'd be sold like
other property upon which taxes were
not paid and it was the failure of an
Iowa man to pay the taxes on a judg
ment he held against a man named
Rankin in Ellsworth county that got
the question before the supreme
Hamilton's judgment was sold for
taxes and Rankin, the man against
whom it was held, bought tt and pro
ceeded at occe to release himself from
Harvey & Ilarvey of Topeka, for
Hamilton commenced an action to
compel the district clerk of Ellsworth
county to issue an execution against
Rankin notwithstanding the sale.
The district court refused to listen to
the application and a suit was then
filed in the supreme court asking for
a writ of mandamus to compel the
clerk to issue an execution.
Tha supreme court Thursday grant
ed the writ which will put a stop to
the taxation of judgments.

Chicago papers are now displaying
typhoid fever ravages tn St. Louis and

At the time the Boer war began
England estimated that the cost to
her would be about $50,000,000. The
present estimate made by her states
men is that it will reach $300,000,000.
Wars are expensive thiogs in this age.
In the present instance the war is
rendered peculiarly expensive for
England by the circumstance thatshe
had very few troops near the seat of
the trouble when the war began, and
60,000 or 80,000 men, with all their
supplies, have had to be transported
thousands of milestogetwitbin reach
of the enemy. Eogland ranks next
to the United States in wealth, but
this war, even if it ends in two or
three months from the present tim-
will add enough to ber debt to make
a difference in that fund that will be
felt for many years.
