in the District Court against \V . D. and

been doing a large building and loan
business in sothern Idaho ever since.
They appointed representatives in most
of the larger Idaho towns and sold a
great nunvber of their certificates, both
on the building and loan plans. De
fendants in the present suit live at King
Hill and gave a prior lien to the com
pany bn their property for the sum of
$2536.97, in which sum the plaintiffs
claim judgment, with intesest from
August of last year. The property in
question is in Owyhee County.
