Tho Armour Packing company and
Hie Chicago Great Western Railway
company will probably be deprived ot
tho lMissesslon of forty acres of accre
tion land lying to tho south of the Mis
souri river by a verdict returned In
the district court at Kansas City, Kan.
Tho laud Is valued at $200,000 and tho
greater part of it has been held by tho
Armour Packing company, which
caused S. K. Howe, an old Mshcrninn,
iiul who claims to be the original own
&r, to bo ejected in 18115.
Many yearn ago, Howe, a poor fish
erman, located on au Island in tho
Missouri river, Just opposite the Ar
mour packing plant. In 1894 the Mis
souri river changed Its course, and the
land, which was originally nu island,
became a art or the mainland. As an
Island, the property was practically
worthless, but when it became a part
or the malnlnnd It ndjolncd the land
of tho Armour Packing company and
its value was great. Tho accretions
became greater, and the trestle, over
which the Chicago Great Western en
ters Kansas City, was built on a part
of tho now laud.
In 1895 "tho Armour Packing com
pany brought proceedings to eject
Howe, who Insisted that the property
was his by settler's right. Tho Armour
company claimed possession because
Its lnnd adjoined the new made ground.
The case wns brought originally In a
justice court, taken to the city court
and finally to the district court, where
Howe was given n decision.
