MATTERS IN THE DISTRICT COURT
Father Asks Title to Lot Be Qaleted
Against Absnt Son.
That George Allen, son of John Allen,
a former resident of Council Bluffs, now
living In Minneapolis, has not been heard
from in eleven years Is disclosed In a suit
brought by the father In the district court
here to quiet his title to three lots In this
city. George Allen, the missing son. Is
named as defendant. ' ,
In his petition the father states that the
title to the property mentioned 'was held
by his son, although he was the real owner.
In 1898 George Allen went west to secure
employment. He did not return and the
family for eleven years has been unable
to secure -any face of him. At the time
the son went west the family resided in
Council Bluffs. The petition asserts that
the absence of the son for so long a pe
riod -Creates the legal presumption that he
is dead and the father declares his belief
that his son died unmarried.
Mrs. Emma Jenson filed suit for divorce

another street by this name, so one of the
streets renamed will henceforth be
known as Fillmore street. Mr. Rohrer,
to show his appreciation of the honor
conferred upon him, has arranged to en
