MERRICK WAS NOT LIABLE FOR TAXES- Finds That Contentions of Appellant Are True—Matter Has Attracted Considerable^* Attention Other Court News. C, H. Merrick has won his appeal from the assessment made by County Treasurer R. P. Dana against him on alleged omitted property, Judge F. W, Elchelberger on Sat urday signed a decree finding that the contention in Mr. Merrick's appeal were true and that ,he was not ilable for any of the prop erty against which the assessments .were made. At the time of the filing of the a&jjea' the matter attracted considerable at tention. Acting on the report of the firm of XJAx ferrets which were examining the tax records of Wapello county at that ffeae, on May 25, 1904, the treasurer assessed C. H: Merrick for $4,400,25 '•taxes on omitted property,, that is •property which the county claimed be longed to Mr. Merrick and which had not been listed for assessment. Merrick Appeals From Assessment. ,, This property comprised notes and mortgages. Mr. Merrick appealed to the district, court. In his appeal stated that the alleged omitted prop erty did not belong to him at the ime the assessments were made by the treasurer. He stated that he had loaned the money in his capacity of loan broker and then later sold the notes and mortgages to clients. The appellant further stated that Ws returns had been sufficient to cover all of the property which he ac tually owned. In his decree Judge Eicjielberger finds this contention to be a true one. The court finds that Mr. Merrlok is not liable for the taxes or interest thus assessed against him and orders the assessment cancelled Four new cases have been filed in the"office of the. clerk of the district court. Two of these are divorce ac tlons. In one Mrs. Elizabeth Dial asks a legal separation from her husband WilsOn Dial on the grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment. The petition alleges that? the parties in the case were married May 20, 1880. The plain tiff asks the custody of three minor children and for such temporary and permanent alimony as the court shall see fit to allow her. Ida Wilson sues her husband L. W, Wilson for a divorce, alleging habitual drunkenness. She states that they were married March 23', 1897. She asks for the custody of her minor children. A. Stuber asks for a judgment for $3-,000, the amount which he states is now due on a note, given him on Octo ber 12, 1904, by the defendant in the suit, John Wilson. He also petitions the court that the mortgage, by which the note was secured, be foreclosed. Asks Big Judgment. The other petition filed today is en titled John Dibble vs. B. C. Headley aid J. A. Headley. The plaintiff asks for a judgment for $2,500. He states In his petition that on December 23 1904, the defendants gave him their The"CROWN" Guarantee Owing io many patented fea tures, some which prevent "jhr of hammers and other parts,. the "Crown" Piano is warranted for ten years—twice as long as other high class instruments.

He further claims that by the terms of the note if the defendants allowed the property on which they had given a mortgage to secure the note, to be sold, or allowed the payments of inter est to lapse, the notes should become due. The plaintiff alleges that the land has been sold for taxes and the in terest payments have been allowed to lapse and therefore the note is due. He asks judgment for the amount of the note and the. foreclosure of the mortgage. MOULTON.

Governor Cummins yesterday signed a full pardon for him and today he will be able to look Into the sky anJ breathe freely and be glad, for the firs* time in more than two years. He wan a peace officer in Albia anil got three years for doing his duty. He arrested a joung man on a charge of being drunk and disorderly. The youth's friwds, who had often threat ened what they would do.to the peace officers of the town rallied to his res fue and in the trouble that ensuad un uncle of the youth under arrest was shot, and later died. Was Twice Convicted. Smith was arrested for murder and twice was convicted. When he appeal ed the first time the supreme court af firmed the judgment against him, hold ing that a peace officer was not war ranted in shooting- to effect an arrest of a mere misdemeanant. It soon be came apparent that this doctrine would effectively add to the contempt which gangs feel for oflicers of the peace, everywhere, and this kind of people Immediately became very over bearing and obnoxious. The attention of the court was called to the fact that the shooting was not for resisting an officer, but in preventing an outrage such as rescuing an arrested person from an officer. A rehearing was grant ed and Officer Smith was given a re trial. On the second trial he was again convicted and now the governor has pardoned him outright, so that he will no longer have any trouble. Not a Criminal. The best Information that the gover nor was able to get concerning the case was to the effect that Smith is not in any sense a criminal, but on the other hand sacrificed himself to enforce the law from a high sense of duty, exercising the utmost personal courage in doing it against the threats of the disreputable element. He be lieved himself in extreme danger of assault in the case referred to and his act was in pursuance of the discharge of his duty as a sworn officer and not as an enemy of society. It was a shot in self-defense, 4n other words. Manifestly a parole was not possible in this case and the governor did a rather unique thing for the executive office, Issued a full pardon.
