Seward Church Wins Suit for Bequest By Mrs. Douglass SfcWARD, Neb., Oct. 1. (Special.) Last week the supreme court rendered a decision in the so-called Congregational church case which has been pending In the' courts for some time. The case In volved the validity 'of two gifts made by the late Jane E. Douglass, deceased. In her will to the First Congregational church- society of - Seward. The decision of the lower court, which upheld tho will, was affirmed. The gifts consisted of the' use' of the parsonage now occupied by Rev. Ludwlg, pastor of the Congregational church, and . block of stock in the First National bank of Seward, consisting of sixty shares f the par value of 100 each. -.After the will of Mrs. Douglass had been admitted to probate suits were be gun on behalf of the residuary legatees to have these gifts declared void. The izeeutors also brought an action to havo the will construed with reference to these particular gifts. -.The residuary legatees contended that tho gift of the bank stock was Invalid because the will did not create a trust and because the bank officers were not competent to take, the trust. . As to the parsonage, It was contended the gift was Invalid because there was no grant of tho tlt'.e to the church or anyone In trust for It, And as to both gifts It was fur ther contended that they did not consti tute a public charity. ' To parsonage Is estimated to be worth aboijt VMfi. The. Value of the .bank stock is more or less problematical, but the stock It know to have been a good divi dend payer for many years, and will un doubtedly yield a handsome Income' for the . church. The will of Mrs. Douglass provides' the dividend shall be paid to the Church monthly. Mrs. Douglass died on November 23, 1910, so there is an accumulation of nearly three years' dividends to be paid to the church as soon as the mandate, of the supreme court reaches the trial court. The appellants have forty days In which to ask for a rehearing and the mandate will not be issued until after that time. The Inheritance tajc,on the gift amounts to about $500, which bears 7 per cent In terest from the. date of Mrs. Douglass death. This amount probably will have to be paid out of the dividends. The par value of the bank stock is $5,000. IMPROVEMENT NOTES ' FROM STROjVISBURG 8TROMSBURG, Neb., Neb., Oct 1. (Bpeclal.) The local Commercial club Is Inaugurating a campaign to raise $3,000 with which to Improve a twenty-acre park donated to the city by the late John Buckley. The site of the park is a wild tract of woodland along the Blue river adjoining town. It is proposed to convert a considerable section of the low land contained In the tract Into a lake and stock the lake with fish. The city has begun the establishment of the .electrolier system of street lighting In the business district,' by making an Initial appropriation of J 1,000 for that purpose out of the occupation tax fund. This city's fiscal 'system is unique In that It contains an occupation tax upon every local business, from blacksmiths' shops lo railroads. It varies In amount from 12.60 to $35 per annum, and Is ex pended by the city authorities upon the recommendations of the local Commercial club. Approximately 11,000 per annum Is derived from the tax. Tho city's schools are now In full swing, with a corps of fourteen teach ers and over SCO pupils. Tho high school enrollment Is W per cent greater than last year. The Increase Is ascribed to tho recent addition of agricultural and man ual training to the courses of study. Five acres of ground will be cultivated by the pupils during the coming season under the direction of a graduate of the slate farm at Lincoln. Two substantial business blocks have been erected here this season at a com bined cost of over "50,000, and a third Is In process of erection at an estimated cost of $10,000.
