UPHELD THE WILL
some Ifclrs of the Dodson Kntate Try
To llrenk It.
When Ph'l'p Dodson who lived over
in the . icin.iy of Palo died, he left an
estate of ten or eleven thousand dol
lars. Some of the children, heirs to
the property, did not like the terms
of the will and carried their grlcvence
into the probate court in an endeavor
to break the document and have a
different distribution of the property.
It has been in court for several
months and been the subject of a hard
fought legal contest. The case was
decided yesterday by the court mak
ing an order that the will should
stand as it was made.
Messrs. iNicnois cc bneicion were
the attorneys who fought for the will
and are much pleased with the deci
sion. It involved abo it $11,000.

IN A FALSE LIGHT
Uridine hu Heeu shown bv Vurlou
A nieasley report ha been going
the rounds of the state papers of late
to the elTect that the bupervlsors of
the various wards of this city were
going to make a big light against the
state tax commission, and would ac
tually refuse to surrender the rolls
to that body, etc, etc and the Ionia
correspondent of the Detroit Free
Press tells in todays issue how grace
fully they surrendered.
If there is a grain of truth in any
of these statements The Uann'i:k haw
been unable to verify it from either
of the supervisors who have ben in
the city right along, and Supervisor
Angel, who is visiting in New York
for some time past would hardly lie
expec ed to know anything about any
such plan of Liroceedure
The facts in the cae so far as we
h ive been able to obtain them are as
follows: A member of the commission
w Js in the city recently looking up
valuations. Be visited man? of our
business places and looked over their
stocks. A few days later he. sent a
notice to the supervisors requesting
them to bring their tax rolls to a
meeting which was held in Ionia yes
terday for the purpose of haviuy
them reviewed by the commissioners.
to which request Wilder and Foote
responded graciously, making nt
kick against the commissioners tak
ing the rolls for reviewal.
It is evident that the commi-sion
thinks sonic of the' assessments are
not high enough, as quite a number
of our business men were asked to at
tend, and went to yesterday's meet
ing; some of them going back today-
There seem- to be but little doubt
but what the assessments of Ionia
county will be boosted the same as
they have been in manyother coun
ties where the commission has been
at work, bin any imputation that the
supervisors of Belding have been or
are antagonistic to the commission
is a scandal on the law-abiding citi
ens of one of Michigan's most hustl
