flmll the beet sugar, of which about
ijnQ.nnn north Is held In the various storage
Warehouses of this city be taxed? la a
question which City Assessor W. D. Har
din desires settled. Mr. Hardin haa written
to both County Attorney Hess and City
Solicitor Kimball requesting their opinion
on the matter. -
Last year the city council passed a reso
lution waiving . taxation of augar stored
in tranalt at the request of th owner
of the several storage warehouses. Those
who were active In Inducing the city coun
cil to take this action expressed the opinion
that the sugar was not taxable here, but
stated they , wished the adoption of the
' resolution In order not to be annoyed In
the future W.lh any attempts to assea the
augar. It waa argued at the time that. the
city council had the right to waive such
taxation as the authorltiea In Des Moines
hail agreed to waive taxes on the sugar,
in case It ahould be atored there. Further
argument waa itiadv- that the adoption by
the council of the resolution would lnaure
the storage of the augar In this city.
City Assessor Hardin, In his communica
tion to the city attorney and city solicit nr
states he has been , Informed that the
waiver is of no force if the city haa the
right to tax the sugar. He rails
attention to the fact that the augar waa
tn storage here on January I of this year,
the taxation date. Mr. "Hardin, however,
has not taken any stepa to secure the
names of the owners of the sugar, pre
fering tn wait until he receives the opin
ion of Mr. Hcsa and Mr. Kimball.
City Solicitor Kimball, who stated he
would deter hla formal opinion until he had
conferred with the county attorney, said
yesterday that he agreed with Mr. Hardin
that the waiver Is invalid If the city has
the legal right to tax the commodity.
I'ifcuasing the question Mr. Kimball aaid:
"The city council haa no right to remit
taxes, though It sometimes doea ao when no
objection is ralaed, and when the circum
stances are such as to justify the action.
The reaaon for passing the resolution waiv
ing taxes on -the- augar was that It waa
held to be not taxable,
"Thia augar h taxable somewhere. If it
la not taxable-herey -K-is-taxable In the
place where the owners live.
"The question 'Involved In focal taxation
is whether or riot It Is still In the possession
of th: original shipper, who, living outside
the state, expects to ship it still farther. If
It la ttill In hit possession under those con
ditions, It la taxable not. here. but. In his
reaidence, sine- vuhtie In this city' it 4s
stored for the-purpase of continuous trans
portation and Is -under tha -regulations gov
erning Interstate- cemmora Three regula
tion do not allow a- atata to tax property
which Is simply passing through the state.
If .this angaria In storage awaiting ship
ment to points farther-east and Is still In
the possession of the original shippers. It
ia not taxable here.
"If, on the other hand, the title of the
sugar haa changed, or If it ia Intended to
use this city as a Jobbing or wholesale
point, the sugar Is taxable."
Much of the sugar which was stored here
over Winter Is now being shipped to eastern
points. Recently a tralnload was shipped
out for 'distribution at various towns within
the stale of Iowa.
A member of the old city council, speak
ing about the passage of the resolution
waiving the taxing of the sugar, aald: "It
was understood at the time that we adopted
this resolution at the urgent request of the
owners of the warehouses that It would
not prevent the taxation of the commodity
in the event that it waa learned that tha
augar waa auhject to taxation here. We
were, however. . given to understand that
tha sugar, being In tranalt, was not taxable
here. There la no doubt but the augar ia
liable to taxation somewhere. If It haa not
been taxed In Colorado, where I believe It
was manufactured, it certainly ahould be
taxed here. It is now up to the city assessor
and the legal authorltiea to settle the ques

The general opinion as expressed yester

tha menu waa of the very beat. The beauty
of the decorations exceeded anything be
fore attempted In the city In that line on
a elm liar occanlon. The vlalt of Secretary
Taft to Council Bluffa has left nothing but
the moat pleasant memories.
Much regret waa expressed that Con
greaaman Walter I .Smith, who with Gen
eral Dodge waa instrumental In getting
Secretary Taft to accept the Invitation of

pressing his regret that he would be un
able to be here Congressman Smith wrote:

IMPORTANT POINT TO BANKS
Sariagi Bank Held Liable for Com
mercial Paper They Sell.
CONFLICTING LAWS DEFINED
Dea Malar la Maklagr F.ffort

Heretofore Held la
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
- DES MOINES, April .-(Speclsl.)-In
suit of vast Importance and affecting the
relations of all the banks of the coun
try in dealing with aavlngs banka of Iowa
the supreme court of Iowa held today that
state savings banks can be held liable for
commercial paper which they sell to other
banks. The decision' was given in a cas
regarding the Corning Savings bank of
Corning, Ia., which went broke through the
forgeries of Its president, Mr. LaRue.
The Des Moines correspondent of the
Corning bank was the Iowa National bank.
LaRue sold a great deal of commercial
paper to the Iowa National, acting for tha
Coming bank as Its president. When the
Corning bank failed the Iowa National
brought suit as Intervener in a suit started
by the state, to compel the receiver to
mcke good the forged paper which the
Iowa National had purchased.
Section 1W5 of the Iowa code provides
that state savings banks cannot incur any
liability other than to the depositors of
the bank. Section 1850 of the code pro
vides that savings banka can buy and
sell commercial paper. The receiver of the
Ccrr.lng bank argued through his attor
neys to the court that because of the
statute prohibiting Incurring liability other
than to depositors the 'bank could not be
held liable for forged pfeper aold by its
president to the Iowa National bank. The
Adams county district court took that view
of it but the supreme court reversed this
today In favor of the Iowa National. The
supreme court holds that the two statutes
muat be taken together end that having
been given t.ne authority to buy and sell
commercial paper It la nrcessary for them
to Incur liability, for such paper Is never
bought except with the understanding that
it Is guaranteed by the bank selling It.
The doelalon of the court la one of the
most important from a banking standpoint
that has been rendered in many months
by any court. Had the supreme court
taken the other view the national banks
and others buying commercial paper from
savings banks In Iowa would have quit
buying such paper and the savings banks
of the state would have been forced out
of that line of banking for the reaso.r
that no bank or Individual would have
purchased the commercial paper. National
banks all over the country In other states
as wall as Iowa which have been buying
this commercial paper have been watch
ing for the decision of the court because I
of Its bearing on their business.
Other points were involved other than the
ona stated. The receiver for the bank
contended that in any event it was not
responsible for the acts of Its president
on the forgeries claiming that trlt-y were
evident on their face us forgeries. Other
points also were argued but on all points
the court decided for the Iowa National.
