Mnoy Tangle* i»» Suit.
So tangled Is the suit and its ramifi

that they were not at all clear as to the
facts in the rase that It was proposed

Bergen Replies in Suit to Re*

Frank Bergen, counsel for the Public

law department of the filing of his plea
In the suit instituted by the municipal

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

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
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
