Monday was a great day for Mountain Home. When it be came known last week that Judge Walters had appointed that day to hear and determine the several applications that had been made to him for the appointment of a receiver for the Great Western Beet Sugar company considerable interest vvas manifested on all sides and, when the honr set for the hear ing arrived, the court room was packed to the limit. The vet eran Boise attorney, James H. Hawley, presented the case for the first applicant, C. F. Wheel •er, who in his complaint filed some days previous, had al leged that tne company had been grossly mismanaged and was practically insolvent and unable to pay its debts. A num her of affidavitswere introduced and read, tending to back up the allegations of the complaint. At this point the Court took a recess until evening, when the the company's attorneys W C. Howie and E. J. Dockery were heared in opposition to the ap plication. The affidavits intro duced tended to show that the company was not insolvent, but , , .. , ' , only temporarily embarassed by lack of funds and further that the funds were now obtainable fontention was that even if a receiver should be appointed, he would be practically unable to do anything with the proper ty of the company of the lack of funds, it being beyond the power of the Court, he argued, to authorize the is suance of receiver's certificates, More than that, he urged upon the Court the inexpediency of naming a receiver at this time, claiming that Garrett was just at the point of success in hand and that if the application for a receiver was denied, the com pany would be able to secure these funds, go on with the work and in due time complete the system and pay all debts. Following the introduction of the affidavits, Attorney Dock ery made an argument in be half of the company.

The de cision was based primarily on * e theory, as advanced by the con !P any 8 . Forneys, that the aa thorization of receiver s cer tjhcates would be illegal, unless com P an y were a quasi-pub J 1C f erv ' ce corporation, having been shown that this was case ' dud £ e Walters yi® ry P ro P er y concluded that the naming of the receiver would be unwise, as he could not possibly raise funds to cirry on tne business, much less to extend the system. At the time of the hearing Henry Hewitt, Jr., holder of the first mortgage of $80,000 against the company stated, through his attorney, that he would not foreclose his mort gage until next April, thus giv ing the company additional time to meet this obligation. He also agreed to furnish an additional $2000 in cash at this time to be used for construction work. On the strength of this cash, construction work on the Camas dam has been that this dam will be raised sev eral feet, thus giving that reser were un Not com menced and it is understood voir a much greater capacity. To insure the payment of the men for this work, Mr. Hewitt has not paid over this money to the company, but has deposited subject to the order of Con tractor Ben Querry himself.
