houses and places of amusement close
dowm and remain closed for an in
definite period. Public and private
schools are not included in the order.
They will remain open. Acting upon
this order, Mayor Rose this morning
issed a proclamation calling upon all
prohibited public meeting places in
Emmett to close and remain closed
until the ban is lifted. The order in
cludes pool and billiard halls, lodges

Federal Court Rules in Favor of
Bondholders—$1,100,000 In
volved in Suit
Attorneys in the case of the bond
holders of the Emmett Irrigation Dis
trict versus the Emmett Irrigation
District on Mond*/ received notice
that the United States Court of Ap
peals in San Francisco had held valid
the bonds issued by the district. There
was involved bonds in the sum of
$1,100,000 and accured interest.
The issue in the case was what are
known as the
commission bonds,"
which were sought to be invalidated
he cause of a breach of contract on the
part of the agent for the sale of the
bonds. The bondholders committee,
Edmund Seymour,
represented by
chairman, brought suit to compel pay
ment of the interest on the entire bond
In April of last year, Judge
Dietrich of the U. S. district court in
Boise held in favor of the bondholders,
and the court of appeals now upholds
Judge Dietrich's decision.
It is quite probable that this de
cision will end the litigation, and that
a conference of the District and the
bondholders committee will be held
in the near future to arrange for a
settlement. There is some talk of
funding the present boiid issue for a
sufficient amount to include the
crued interest. It is believed here
that to make a levy to pay off the in
terest now due would be
burden. It is estimated the interest
charges now amount to $12 per acre.
