The executive council assessed the property
and certified It to the Board of Supervisors.
The company brought suit to enjoin the
supervisors from forcing the collection of
the taxes. The supreme court today holds
that where one corporation owns all the
properties, both that used as street railway

shall assess aa Interurban the property
Inside the city limits that Is used aa an

was supervisor. He also .bought at a dis.
count warrants against' the county for
work done by others. - Action was started

claims. The district court granted the In
junction and the supreme court today af
firmed the decision.

War Tsft, In his speech, this afternoon
before the State Bar association,, after
apologising for not hating selected a legal
subject, began his address upon the Pannma
canal by giving reasons for lhe selection
by the government of the Pnnama route
and explaining the apparent delay In the
actual work of excavation. The necessity
of Improved sanitary conditions being estab
lished before the actual work of construc
tion was actively , commenced was strongly
emphasised and It 'was shown that the
nearly 25,000 employes had in reality accom
plished more than any one realized. In the
building and equipment ; nf rallroaftls, the
construction of a water Supply and build
ing nf thousnnds of homes for those en
gaged in the work. It wss pointed out
that the actual excava'lon was much less
of a problem than with .what to do with
the material when It wns taken out, much
of which had to be carried fifteen miles.
requiring the building of over 300 miles of
spur tracks. The question of obtaining
labor waa shown to be a serious one and
It had been necessary to employ large num
bers of natives and Chinamen, three of
whom would do less thnn an ver:ige Amer
ican workman. The estimated cost of the
Panama route was placed at 1150,000,000 and
the time of completion about seven years
as against a cost of t300.000.000 and seven
teen years for the completion of the work
had the Nicaraguan route been . chosen.
The speaker said that the American people
were disposed to be In too big a hurry to
"have the dirt fly," and it had been neces
aary for those In charge to withstand 1
great deal of political stress while carrying
out the preliminary work.

In her room In a local hotel yesterday. The

Miss Ellison some ten rears' ago when she

garding the man under arrest at Elroy:
"My sister sold out her millinery busi
ness In Ellsworth with the Intention of In
vesting the money in a farm In Washing
ton which Biggs Is said to have claimed
he had picked out. It was the understand
ing of the girl's family that she waa on
her wedding trip and that she would settle
down In her own home on the farm In
Washington. She took all her money and
negotiable papers with her at the time she
left home. The amount Is variously esti
mated, but I am positive she had at least
$3,000 with her. and it may have been as
much as $H,0O0."
