CUNNINGHAM AFTER MONEY Tax Tercet and County Unable to Agree on the Amount Due. DIFFERENCE OVER SEVEN THOUSAND Claimant Haa Mast Km Proposition for Settlement, bat Board Aatlel . pates One at the Kext Moating. T. M. Cunningham, the tax ferret, -who has had a claim pending against Potta wattamie county for the last year and a half for about $10,000, as his share of tha taxes paid Into the county treasury aa the reeult of hla work under a contract made with tha Board ot Supervisors, Is In tha city. He la accompanied by E. E. Sluss of Indianapolis, his attorney, and they, to gether with Frank Bhlnn ot Carson, who waa plaintiff In an action brought In tha courta to declare the contract with Cun ningham Illegal, conferred yesterday with the members of the Board of Supervisors and County Treasurer Arnd with a view to reaching some settlement of the matter. The aupreme court, In a recent decision In the case brought by Shlnn, upheld the contract with Cunningham. Under thla contract Cunningham waa to get M per cent of tha taxes collected aa the result of hla efforts. The contract waa entered Into late In the year 1S9 and referred to taxes then due. In view of the decision of the supremo court, declaring the eon tract legal, It la no longer disputed that Cunningham la entitled to half of the taxes ha brought In for the yeara prior to 1899, or something over $1,000. There now arises, however, a dispute aa to the meaning and scope of the contract. According to Cun ntncham'a contention, he la entitled to 50 per cent of the taxea collected for 1899 and subsequent years, wnicn woum give mm about M.0O0. The county authorities, how ever, dispute this claim and contend that these collections are not covered by tha contract. Mr. Cunningham Is now located at Sulli van, Ind., where he la the editor and pub lisher of the Sullivan Tlmea. C. W.

No definite overtures were made by Cun. nlngham to tha supervlaora yesterday for the settlement of tha matter, but It la ; . i h. fc. .in ttv anhmlt i uiimi.iwM " - . proposition to the board. Ha will, aa a matter of course, accept tha $4,000 due hint without dispute under the supreme court decision. His proposition as to the balance will be that tha matter be submitted to the court on an agreed statement of facts. Tha total amount paid In aa tha reault of Cunningham' effort waa 18.167.30, In cluding taxes for the year 1896 to 1900 In clusive. Of this amount $9,176.96 waa of taxes for 1809 and $S.s66.24 of taxes of 1900. Tha balance, or $8,134.40 was taxea tor the yeara 1896. 1897 and 1898, and under the court's holding that Cunningham's con tract la valid there la no further dispute as to his being entitled to ona-half of this sum, or $1062.20. Hla commission of M per cent on the taxea collected for 1899 and 1900 la, however, denied on the ground that thesa collections were not made under the contract, aa the agreement specifically re ferred to taxes du at tha time It waa entered Into.

The attending phy sician says ha will be couflned to hit bed for two or thre week. ; Those who have ever felt its keen, cutting pains, or witnessed the intense suffering of others, know that Rheumatism is torture, and that it is rightly called "The King of Tain." All do not suffer alike. Some are suddenly seized with the most excrucia ting pains, and it seems every muscle and joint in the body was being torn asunder. Others feci only occasional slight pains for weeks or months, when- a sudden change ia the weather or exposure to damp, chilly winds or night air brings on a fierce attack, lasting for days perhaps" and leaving the patient with a weakened constitution or crippled and deformed for all time. An acid, polluted condition of the blood is the cause of every form and variety of Rheumatism, Muscular, Articular, Acute, Chronic, Inflammatory and Sciatic, and the blood must be purged and purified before there is an end to your aches and pains. External applications, the use of liniments and plasters do much toward temporary relief, but such treatment does not reach the real cause or cleanse the diseased blood ; but S. S. S., the greatest of all blood purifiers and tonics, does cure Rheumatism by antidoting and neutralizing the poisonous acids and building up the weak and sluggish blood. It is safe If you have Rheumatism, write us, and our physicians will furnish without charge any information desired, and we will mail free our book on Rheumatism.
