Mnoy Tangle* i»» Suit. So tangled Is the suit and its ramifi cations are such that several of the: lawyers in It confessed at the outset that they were not at all clear as to the facts in the rase that It was proposed to develop. More testimony will be taken at the conclusion of today’s pro ceedings and there have been several preliminary skirmishes covering other phases of the proceedings. Agreement Made In 1008. An agreement was made July 1, 1908, between the defendants, jib parties of the first part, and one John H. Henry, of Lincoln, N. H.. as party of the sec ond part, and the local trust company ns party of the third part. The de fendants, being creditors, stock and bondholders of the chartered company of Lower California, and desiring to realize on their holding in that com pany and for the purpose of consolidat ing their interests, decided to organize the Magdalena Buy Company, under the laws of this State. Through Mr. Henry, acting under the agreement, the stock and bonds were delivered to the Fi delity, which is now awaiting the action of the court as to what to do with them In view of subsequent complica tions arising out of conflicting claims as to the right of the' redemption of the stock. Among the lawy'ers that figure in the s- it are Samuel W. Beldon, counsel for the Fidelity, and Frederick J. Faulke, Herbert Hoggs and Francis Child, Jr., of the local bar, and John W. McAnarney, of Boston, for the defendants. Every school boy or girl should se cure one of the Star Dictionaries.

FIGHT Bergen Replies in Suit to Re* cover Money Claimed by City. Frank Bergen, counsel for the Public Service Corporation, notified the city law department of the filing of his plea In the suit instituted by the municipal ity to recover money alleged to be due the city from the trolley corporation on account of the ordlnanoe requiring 5 per cent, of the gross receipts of the trolley company to be paid to the city. It Is the claim of the city that the Public Servlet has fallen short annu ally In the sums that should have been paid on account of this tax. When Herbert Boggs, representing the city, filed his suit asking for $300,000 dam ages the Public Service attorney asked for a bill of particulars. The amended complaint placed the city’s demand at $813,000. The city lawyers reached the conclu sion that this was the amount due the city by a different method from any that has yet been suggested as the equitable one for fixing the sums that should be paid by the trolley company under the law. They took the gross receipts of all lines operating in the city from the statements submitted annually by the company. The differ ence between the actual 5 per cent, i f this amount and the sum that the Public Service had actually paid Into the treasury was $83,000. Total gross receipts of the trolley company for the year ending April 30, 1901, were $2,777,033.80. The trolley company paid Into the city under the 5 per cent, ordinance $81,647.99, which, according to the city's claim, was $57,203.70 less than should have been paid. Similar discrepancies are pointed out by the city for the succeeding years. The Public Services claims that the city is in laches as far as payments are concerned previous to 1905.
