One man, R. Suck, ot Council Staffs has learned that to his sorrow. Saturday forenoon Mr. Buck and a young man who gave his name as Lane of Council Bluffs, drove into town and down to the sale pavilion and Buck presented a good set of harness which he Wanted sold in the afternoon sale. Mr. Berkhlmer grew a little suspicions over the rather backward way in which the mail answered his questions, and catted up Sheriff OeMoss who got in touch with Pottawattamie county offlciers and Deputy Coottey and two Bluffs officers drove over after dinner and picked the men up and they were taken with the harness to Council Bluffs. Here it was learned that the harness had been stolen near Coon Rapids ia Carroll county. Buck had the harness and had hired Lane to bring him down here where he expected to sell them, Lane was released and Buck is now languishing in the county jail In Carroll, awaiting action ot the grand Jury.

Mrs- A- W. ShftRojr, Mrs. B. B. Electric Rate* at Former Poiition; Repeal Ordinance Gm&til Await* Ottteotae of Present Proeecdifig* in Other "Come weal, come woe, My status is quo." And the status quo of electric rates in this community fast now is, as Samuel Hoffenstein's famed couplet suggests, right back where it used to be as a result of recent legislation on the part ot Malvern's council. Friday evening the Council met long and verbosely with representatives ot the Iowa * Nebraska Light and Power company, Brought out by them was the contention that the reduction made by Ordinance No. 106, pub* lished and put in force last Thursday morning, carried the electric rates below cost ot production and that ordinance was, therefore, confiscatory. Rather than go to court with the matter, an expensive proceeding, the council decided to repeal the ordinance and await a possible voluntary reduqtion or the settlement of a similar controversy at Clarlnda, as a court action of this type would be extremely expensive. Thus the new ordinance, published elsewhere in this issue, along with a statement by the council, repeals the old and leaves the light rates where they were, For one brief week, between March 23 and March 30, the new rates were effective legally, but starting today the old ones will be in force. At the meeting Friday besides the council were K, R. Cook ot GUnwood, attorney, F. B. O'Malley of Red Oak, district manager, Vern Crook, local manager, and Harold Boebner ot Uncoln, alU empioywl^iby, tbe *^—^_ ^.».«-.^'_>^_ ..^-ifrrgni, j .

Taxes are beginning to come in pretty fast since a week ago and there may be a pretty fair percentage paid yet before the deadline, Friday evening,-is reached; A couple of weeks ago the receipts were nearly $100,000 short ot last year at the same period, . The dosing of the banks March 4 for a week or ten days and the consequent shortage of ready cash accounted for a good deal of the shortage, Then too, the report that a bill was before the legislature extending the time without penalty to July 1, Hopp Explains Vote Questions in Legislation Write* Leader Cottcernitig fteeetit Let {station and His Stand Thereon We append the following letter from Milts county's representative, tt. C. ttopp, in which he goes into detail concerning the legislation and the stand he has taken on the questions there raised. We visited Mr. Hopp in the legislature last week and found him hard at work and we believe that he has given every question that came up a real serious and thoughtful consideration. He is voting right as he sees it: Olenwood, Iowa, March 28, 1933. The Malvern Leader, Malvern, Iowa. Dear Sirs: I wish to have the following article published. I have not given any Information on legislative matters in our county papers so tar but the time has come when I must make some explanations. In regard to the eighteenth amendment: I am being criticized for voting dry. That is a mistake as no one so far has voted either wet or dry. That question will probably come up some time this week. When it does I shall still stand the same as I did In my campaign, that I shall study all problems thoroughly and vote my convictions. Now what we have voted on is to set up the machinery to either ratify or reject the constitutional amendment which has been ruled by congress but it must be done by convention. The way it now stands, what I vote against, is to hold two caucuses in each county, not democratic or republican, but wet and dry, To nominate one delegate tor each party,,the;same to,j be, voted on **•* .5-'* IK L/Ufe*— *.
