The remains of James Innis Jr. who
died ip the Philippines last November, in

H. A. Mayo, of Walhalla, has been
east with Walhalla clay and had it baked
into red or cream brick, as may be
wished—or can make it speckled by
mixing. There isn't any doubt of the
brick-making qualities of the clay—and
there ought to be no doubt of its money
making qualities—and everybody who
knows Mr. Mayo will heartily hope the
latter quality may be developed to his
benefit, in which case we will all share.
F. S. Cheney of Pembina was in the
city Monday securing a building, and

store.—Drayton Echo.
Mr. Cheney informs us that he will open
complete line of gents furnishings,
boots, shoes and confectionery some
time next week.
Tax Titles.
Considerable criticism has been made
by citizens on the action of the county
boatd at the last meeting for giving a tax
deed on lot 16, block 25, for the sum of
$25 on which over $80 taxes were due,
and which lot, with buildings is worth at
least $400. We think the board must
have made an error in some way.
At least four-fifth of the remitted taxes
are due the corporation and this school
district, and it is a very grave question as
to the power of the county board to thus
remit collectable taxes due funds over
which they have no legal control. It is
also doubtful, under the law passed by
the last legislature, if the county board
have power to grant deeds at all on prop
erty on which taxes are delinquent, ex
cept through and by the provisions of
that law. Though in the case referred
to, title was probabily not the object of
the purchaser, as the tax deed is equiva
lent to a receipt in full for the delinquent
A. 3P. Webster's Claim
Langdon, April 12.—W. A. Laidlaw
has been engaged during the greater
part of this week taking the evidence in
a contest which will prove before it is
ended to be a remarkable case. About
six years ago A. P. Webster filed on a
claim north of Easby, in Harvey town
ship, and siftce the time of filing appear
ed to keep himself inside the homestead
laws he is an unmarried man and spent
a great deal of his time in other parts of
the state, where his relatives reside, but
did not neglect to keep in pace with the
rest of the settlement so far as improving
the land is concerned, as he has brought
about 120 acres of the land under a state
of cultivation and has that amount now
ready for crop, but the house is a very
ordinary claim "shanty." About four
years ago Websters' chattels were seized
under execution, and he then instituted
an action against the bondsmen of the
then sheriff, Allan Pinkerton, to recover
damages, for illegal distress, the suit
being finally determined at the last term
of District Court in favor of the bonds
men. In order to make his case stick
it was necessary for Webster to show
that he was the head of a family, or
acted in that capacity,
which he did,
been the head of a family somewhere
else he was not so in this county, as his
dependencies did not reside under his
roof on his claim. Attorney Cleary saw
the opening that was made by Webster
in his evidence betore the district court,
in stating that his residence was with his
friends, and so filed thecontest It is
estimated that the tract sfe wbrth 92,500

that Mr. Webster will be .represented
before the land office at' Washington
