Murvel Fentress In Jail
Murvel Fentress, who claims Red
Cloud, Nobrnska as his home, Is now
making his home In the county jail on
the charge of stealing a Ford sedan
early last Sunday morning frotn the
garage of Will Amis south of Lebanon.
It seems that Fentress was going to
Downs in a car, which broke down a
few miles north of the Amis place and
he started to walk to Downs, but in
stead when he got to Amis' place he
took tho sedan from the garage and
drove It to Downs, it was tracked Sun
day morning, and a trace found of the
young fellow answering tho descript
ion of Fentress and on returning to the
car he had loft found him there. They
held him until Sheriff Agnew could
get there. He donied taking the car,
but tho sheriff started for this city
with him on suspicion, and before
reaching hero confessed driving tho
car to Downs and where ho left It, and
where Mr. Amis found his car after
being notified by Agnew Fentress
preliminary will bo held In Judge
Simpson's court next Monday Smith
Holders of paving bonds issued by
the city of Red Cloud won a decision
in supreme court Monday, says tho
State Journal. Tho city had created
several paving districts and followed
tho usual course of assessing the
property benefited. The owners of
this property defaulted in the pay
ment of the bonds and tho holders
sought to hold the city. Tho Tower
court said this was not tho law. The
supreme court overturns this decision.
The city sought to refund them ns
general obligations, but taxpayers en
joined this action.
. The supreme court says that where
a ciy of the second class issues its
bonds designated ns district paving
bonds under the law that authorizes
such improvements and assesses the
cost against property benefited, whore
the statute contains no provision that
such bonds shnll be payable only out
of the funds realized from such assess
ment and where neither tho bonds nor
the ordinance authorizing them con
tain such declaration and where the
bonds purport on their face to bo tho
general obligation of the city, tho
city is bound for their payment.
In such cases tho debt will bo re
gained as a general obligation of the
city and may bo refunded as the law
provides. Where a statute authorizes
a cjjy to pave streets and such statute
contains no restriction to the con
trary, there arises an implication that
such city is authorized to enter into
contracts for the performance of tho
work and to pay for tho same by r.
general tax levy.
The case is regarded ns of great im
portance, ns many other second class
cities in the state have been doing r.
lot of paving, without undortnnding
that the city is liable for tho payment
thereof if the district docs not meet
