"Is the Iowa drainage law defective tri
not definitely providing for the construc
tion of lateral ditches found necessary sub
sequent to the establishment of a drainage
district?" is a question which confronted
the supervisors of Pottawattamie county
in session yesterday ss a drainage board.
J. H. Mayne. enplneer In charge of con
struction of the Pigeon creek ditch, re
ported that to make a portion of the main
ditch effective It would be necessary to
construct a lateral ditch about three
fourths of a mile In length. While the pro
posed lateral Is In the territory embraced
In the Pigeon creek drainage district, there
Is a question as to whether the supervisors
have the right to order the construction
of such sn additional ditch without going
thro'igh the procedure ns In the case of
the main ditch of a petition, notices and
Former County Attorney Klllpack was
called Into consultation by the board and
gave It ns his opinion that, while there
might be an Implication In the law permit
ting the construction of such laterals as
a part of the ordinal drainage system, such
permission, however, was not In definite
form. Thai there would be no question
ibout the right to proceed with the con
struction of the lateral If It had been In
cluded In the original report, but this was
not the case. Mr. Killpnck suggested the
need of an amendment to the drainage law
ns follows: "That If It becomes necessary
to the requirements of the drainage sys
tem, laterals may be constructed by merely
giving notice to the parties affected."
Supervisor Henry Brandes, who.ie term
expires at the beginning of the year, was
elected to the state legislature, and he
plans on having the drainage law amended,
as suggested by Mr. Klllpack at the com
ing session. In the meantime Engineer
Mayne was Instructed to make a prelim
inary survey of the proposed lateral and
to report at the meeting of the board In
Contractor Wlckham, who should have
had the ditch completed by January 1,
was given an extension of time, until July
1. There are about four and one-half miles
of ditch construction Involved In the Pigeon
creek ditch contract, which will cost some-
thing over 3O,000.

SANTA CLAUS KNEW A GOOD THING
ARGl'MEXT 0 POnTI,AD TAS CASE
Company Objects to Producing Its
Books In (onrt.
The hearing on the application of County
Attorney Hess fcr an order requiring the
Portland Gold Mining company to produce
its books and stock records, so that they
can be used as evidence In the suits brought
to assess the stockholders of the company
for taxation In Pottawattamie county on
their holdings, was heard before Judge
Oreen In district court. The county was
represented by Charles M. Harl and Emmet
Tlnley, while the Portland company and
Its individual stockholders were represented
by Congressman W." I. Smith and State
Senator C. O. Saunders.
Frank O. Peck, who was secretary of the
Portland Gold Mining company before It
transferred Its Incorporation from Iowa to
Wyoming at ihe time these suits were
started by Pottawattamie county, was the
only witness Introduced by the defense.
Mr. Peck testified that there were 3.OW.0OO
shares of stock of the par value of 11, and
to ascertain the identity of the owner of
each share of stock would be a stupendous
and almost Impossible task.
On behalf of the defense It was contended
that the application of County Attorney
Hess was not made In good faith, but for
the purpose of securing the records In
order that other taxholders might be listed
for taxation. Another plea was that the
books and records asked for In the appli
cation are far too numerous and bulky to
be produced In court.
Counsel for Pottawattamie county argued
that the pretended transfer of the stock
of the Iowa corporation to the corporation
organised In Wyoming was Invalid and
of no effect. That this pretended transfer
was made without the consent of the
stockholders was the contention of Messrs.
Harl and Tlnley.
Attorney Harl, In the course of his argu
ment, stated that It has been suggested
that If Pottawattamie county, by its coun
sel, would give a professional pledge that
no attempt would be made to dig up
new tax cases that the objection to pro
ducing the books and records might be
withdrawn. "We could mnke such agree
ment." he said, "as. If the records show
further liability of Portland stockholders,
it would be our duty to furnish that evi
dence. If the stockholders of the Portland
company are not liable for taxation In
Pottawattamie county, as It Is claimed,
they need have no fesr of being compelled
to pay. If, on the other hand, they are
lleble. then the county Is entitled to the
stock records for the purpose of fixing

Glbblns Goes the I.lmlt.
"I want him arrested for manslaughter,"
was the excited declaration of A. Glbblns
yesterday morning when he appeared be
fore Judge Scott to file a complaint against
one of his neighbors, Henry Dnrnell, liv
ing at 1208 Ninth avenue. Qibbins lives at
1130 Nin'h avenue. As a reason for de
manding the arrest of Darnell, Glbblns
displayed to the judge a big bump on the
top of his head, which he alleged was
caused by Parnell striking him with a
"Well, if you want to charge him wUh
manslaughter, you'll have to produce a
dead num.'" explained Juiee Scott, and
this Gtbhlns admitted he could not do.
After talking the matter over Judge Scott
suggested to GlbblnB that tie had better
see the county attorney and tile tit com
plaint with him.
The trouble, as explained by Gibbins,
arose over a fight between his children
and those of Darnell, and the latter came
to Gibbins' back yard to talk the matter
over. Darnell, so Glbblns alleges, used
some rather hard language and when he
resented this used the hayrake, with which
he wa armed, over Gibbins' head. The
force of the blow. Qibbins said, was suf
ficient to break the handle of the rake.
