BlICKMANJOIG SUIT
Former Partner C. E. Jack­
son Demands an Ac­
counting
St. "Cloud Journal-Press: C. E.
Jackson has brought two suits in the
district court against former Congress­
man C. B. Buckman of Little Falls,
aggregating $24,675. The controversy
arose over the big Brookdale farm
located 12 miles from Royalton. In his
complaint C. E. Jackson alleges that
he purcbbased a half interest in the
equity of the farm for $8,500 three
years ago. There are 9,000 acres in
the farm, against which there is a
mortgage of $25 000. Mr. Jackson al­
leges that when he went to look over
the farm three years ago Mr. Back
man showed him the soil around the
honse and it was a line black loam.
He stated ,.tbat the land farther oat
was even better and more valuable.
Mr. Jackson claims he did not take
the trouble to look over the land,
but took Mr. Buckman's word for
it. The plaintiff alleges tbat the
defendant made false representations
to him and tbat tbe land is not worth
nearlv as much as it is claimed and
is not worth enGugii to pay the mort­
gage against it. He alleges that he
has lest all he put into it and asks
for judgment for |8,500. The other
snit is for accounting and settlement.
The plaintiff claims fnat on March
29, 1904, he and Mr. Buckman entered
into a contract by which they be­
came joint owners of the Brookdale
farm. Accordmg to the agreement
each as to own halt' of the property
on the farm and receive nslf of the
income. Mr. Jackson claiixs that
his share of the income since tie pur­
chased the farm has been $5,800 and
that he has not received a cent of it.
Be asks for a judgment for this
amount.
^Further he claims that some ot the
buildings on the farm were burned
last spring and the lo?s was fully
covered by insurance. Mr. Buckman
took the 1153,000 insnrance money and
out it to his own use. He alleges
that the defendant has refused to pay
pver bis share of $6,000 and wants
judgment for that amount.
He further alleges that the follow­
ing stock, machinery, etc., was on
tbe farm: Eight cows, valued at
$200 44 steers, valued at $1,100 two
balls, valued at $350 one team of
horses, 1320 1? horses, 1875 98
hogs. $784 five self binders, $375
two corn binders, $50 hoasehold fur­
niture and other machinery too num­
erous to mention, valued in all at
$9,970 He claims tbat most of tbe
etonk and machinery has been sold
artel that be is entitled to one-half,
amounting to $4,985, and the defen­
dant ha« refused to pay over any part.
He fi-uther alleges that it was stipu­
lated in the contract that if there were
any dis.-eneions at tbe end of the"year
on the amount due each, C? A.
Niche la arid E. A.. Kiicg should act
as arbitrators.. It is alleged that the
defenir.nt has refused to allow the
arbi'raters to have the case and no
settlerofTt can be made.
The case will probably be tried in
Little Fulls at the next term of court.

TRAINS BY JAN. 1ST
So It is Claimed by the
Chief Engineer of
the Soo
Val. Batz of Holding, was in tbe
city having just returned from Texas,
where he has spent most of the win­
ter, says the St. Clond Journal Prest.
He was all day yesterday in St. Paul,
and states he had a Ion* interview
with the chief engineer of tne Soo.
This official told him that there was
no doubt but that the rails will have
been laid on tbe Brooten-Barnum ex­
tension of tbe Soo and the trains will
be running by January 1, 1908. The
engineer told Mr. Batz that tbe com­
pany has abandoned considerable of
the work contemplated this year, but
in the case of this extension it had
decided to go ahead just as rapidly
as material and teams can be landed.
Mr. Bats states that the company
is not quite satisfied with the grade
along through Holding and this will
bave to be changed, as well as at
other points along the proposed line.
NEW POLICE FORCE NAMED
Mayor-Elect Geo. Moeglein has an­
nounced the new police force that wil

have both been on the force before,
Gannon having served under the ad­
ministration of Mayors Vasaly and
Nichols, and Leblanc under the ad­
ministration of Mayor Chance, until
his resignation some time ago. The
selection will undoubtedly meet with
public favor.
CONSOLIDATION OF ICE COMPA­
NIES.
A deal is about competed whereby
Samuel Trebby will purchase the ice
businees of Davis & Shea. Both com­
panies have enjoyed a fair business,

handle tbe business in a city of this
size cheaper and to better advantage
to the patrons as well as to tbe own­
ers.

With continued warm weather, the
Pine Tree mills will soon start. They

be started before tbat time to try the
machinery.

COURT MAKES RECORD
Calendar Practically Clear
For First Time in
Many Years
The March term of district court
for Morrison county ended Wednesday
afternoon, after being in session nine­
teen days.
For tbe first time in many years the
calendar is practically clear, the very
few cases continued being entirely at
tbe request of the attorneys concerned,
and not in any way dae to the presid-*
ing judge.
It has been cutomary for many
years to finish the jury cases at the
regular March term and put off the
court cases until later, causing special
sessions from time to time. Judge
Taylor's idea is that it is better for
the taxpayers and for litigants to have
all the caaes possible decided at tbe
regular term, avoiding the expense of
extra journeys, and loss of time, etc.,
on the part of litigants and counsel,
caused by special sessions. Therefore
Judge Taylor insisted on getting
through with the calendar and for tbe
first time within a great many years,
tbe regular session ends with a calen­
dar practically clear. County Attor­
ney Cameron co-operated in this res­
pect, bringing all tbe conntv cases
possible to trial. The result is a great
saving of time and expense for all
concerned.
Judge Taylor won the highest opin­
ions of all counsel and of litigants,
for his fair, impartial and careful rul­
ings. Tbe new judge in every respect
fulfills tbe best traditions of the bench
as to learning and ability, and all who
have observed his conduct feel sore
that tbe Seventh district is very for­
tunate in Its successor to Judge
Searls.
The case of Ole H. Johnson vs. Har­
bison & Peterson and Morrison county
Was the firBt to oome up for trial at
the convening of court Monday after­
noon. In this case plaintiff sues for
$500 damages alleged to have been
done on his farm by overflow uf tbe
Little Elk river, whicb, plaintiff
alleges, was caused by the waters of a
large drainage ditch, constructed bv
the defendants, emptying into the
Little E1k. This drainage ditch,
known as the Cluogh town ditch, has
been the cause of quite a little trou­
ble, during its construction, to all
concerned.
The overflow of tbe Little Elk, in
August 1906, after a heavy rain, did
much damage to Mr. Johnson's
hay crop and l«nd and it is the plain
fiiTs claim that the ditch was respon
siie for it, and he mtrodnce'l evidence
tending to show that the Little Elk
bad never before overflowed us banks
ia Angnst.
The defendants cliim that at the
tinr-e the damage was done, the ditch
w«s not completed and that the
extra^flow ot water from it would not
efiect the stage of the water in tbe
Little Elk to any gretit extent. They
also showed that ttie Little Elk had
overflowed its nanks at certain seasons
before the ditch was completed.
Much evidence wa? brought np by
both tho plaintiff arid tbe defendants.
No arguments wera made and the
case will ba presented to the conrt in
brief?.
Tbe case cf Simon Kasolla vs. Jos.
Dahinen et al was spttlad ont of court.
This was a case in which an injunc­
tion to restrain the defendants from
foreclosure ot a chattel mortgage was
asked for by the plaintiff, also that
judgment be given him compelling
the cancelling of certain notes by
the defendants.
The case of F. W. Lyon vs. Morri­
son county was next disposed of.
This is another case tbat bears on the
(.'lough town ditch and is brought on
for the collection cf pay for services
rendered the county whan an injunc­
tion stopping tbe work on the ditch
was gotten out. At the meeting in
January of tbe couiity commissioners
the bill for 1105, presented by plaintiff
was allowed, bat payment was
stopped later on atid the plaintiff then
brought action for recovery of the
same. After a little consideration the
conrt allowed the rlamtif?. the full
amount of tbia bill for the services
rendered.
The divorce case of Mithilda A.
Lind vs. John Lind was next taken up
fcy the court. In this osss. which is
brougnt on the grounds cf cruel and
inhuman treatment, plaintiff asks
the custody of the four children, born
of tbe union, be given to her, and
that |800 alimony and $15 a month for
the support cf herself and children be
given to her. The couple were mar­
ried in St. Peter in 1891 and came to
Elmdale some years ago where they
bave lived together until July 1906.
The testimony having been all taken
the court took tbe case under advise­
ment until the value of certain lands
coaId be found out.
The case of Martha Guin vs. James
A. Gain, also a divorce esse, was the
next to be called. The plaintiff's
ground for a divorce were that of
cruel and inhuman treatment, and on
the defendants failure to put in an
appearance in this case, the court
granted the decree the plaintiff asked
for.
The case of P. J. Lauerman vs
Srite Medved and the Aetna Insurance
Co. in garnishee proceedings, asking
for an order of tbe court to release in­
snrance money garnished by plaintiff
came up for trial Wednesday. This
case arises from the one recently tried
in which paintiff secured a judgment
in the sum of $153. Defendant claims
that insurance is on the hoasehold
goods, excepting $80, and th«t it is
exempt. Thirty days was allowed
defendant to offer further evidence.

John Choonard, for absolute divorce

Date Set by Gov. Johnson
for Observance as
April 26
The proclamation in regard to Ar­
bor and Bird day for the year 1907 has
been issued and the date appointed
for observance is April 26th. Follow­
ing is the Governor's proclamation:

"The place and purpose of the tree
in history, its dignity and worth, are
they not set forth in the chronioles of
christlandom that all the world may
read, from its first mention in the first
chapter of the first book unto that last
revelation of the world unseen, where,
'in tbe midst of the street of it
was there the tree of life, and
the leaves of the tree were for the
healing of the nations Y'
"Throughout all time man has been
the tree's sinceie worshipper. In his
boyhood he sought its green heights
in his youth he walked beneath its
whispering branches in his age he
sat content in itt sympathetic shade
'after life's fitfal fever, he sleeps well'
—at the foot of it. The influence of
this lifelong companion is deep, last­
ing and visible.
"Quite apart from the indirect force
in the mass as a factor of climate, we
have daily testimony of its power to
mold in the character of the Norse­
man, austere, independent, strong a3
his native pine the Briton, rugged,
honest, outspreading as his much-sung

sturdy as his beeches. Out of a state
peopled by such races, what do we not
hope for? Surel?, tbe rights of tbe
forest will be reverenced surely, the
forest will make royal return!
'Let the day of this proclamation

in deed and in spirit, in school, home
and mart. Let the highways be em­
bellished make crooked paths straight,

CAPTURE A COW MOOSE.
Tbe details of an extraordinary cap­
ture come from Aitkin, to the effect
that Wm. Smith and Jay Wilbur,
hunters of that place, left for a moose
hunt on March 5th, and have just re­
turned with a live cow moose—some­
thing that has never been taken alive
In this country. It required five days
to get their captive so subdued that it
could be handled. It now takes its
place in a barn as docile as can be.
It was captured in Aitkin county,
twenty-five miles north of Aitkin.

Committee.

with some small boys, Richard O Shea
had the back of his right hand severe­
ly cut by one of the boys who was
playfully swinging an axe. The cut
was quite deep and it took five
stitches to sew up the wound.

Mrs, F. Freeman, complaining wit­
ness, charged with burning some hay

Hon. Milo Young was in the city
Saturday. Mr. Young was desirous cf
learning the sentiment of the people
on tbe tonnage tax proposition and
the proposed compromise wi'h the
railroads. The Commercial club of
Brainerd favors the railroad side of
things, whereas the Little Falls club
appears to be toe other way whioh
pits the representative from this dis­
trict in a peculiar position.
Fletcher Creak has agiin over­
flowed. Each year this little creek
seems to take on too much water
and overflows, the water rasaing
along a certain trend, whioh takes it
along fourth street and fifth avenue
northeast, filling several cellars and
sometimes doing quite a little dam­
age. Monday was the occasion of
another of these annual visits, and a
few cellars had their customary
baptism of water. This was a mild
visit, however, and the water has all
been absorbed by Mother Earth.
TIGER'S TINY FOB.
The tiger bird, so-called becuase he
is the one thing the royal beast of
India fears, is no longer than the
English sparrow. Yet so bold and
combative is he that if tne great cat
is surprised by a sufficient number of
the little creature's kind far from the
prot ctiiig sheltei of the jungle, It
v.ill no hard with him. Build up
your system with golden grain belt
beer, the ideal home beveraga It is
a liquid bread—pure, wholesome and
nourishing. Order of your nearest
dealer or be supplied by Sylvester
