WINS HIS APPEAL
FROM ASSESSMENT
COURT DECLARES THAT C. H.
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

note for $2,500, payable in three years.
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.

Shot,Fired as Result of Effort to Make
Arrest—Former Officer Is Not Con.
sldired a Criminal—Gets Full Par­
don
Des Moines, Dec. 25,—Speaking of
Christmas gifts, .Thomas Smith of Al
bla gets freedom for his.
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.
