PRESENT TESTIMONY IN McNIDER ESTATE CLAIM EVIDENCE BEING TAKEN IN FORM OF DEPOSITIONS Judge Beardmore Sustains Defense Motion on Law Question of Case. Plaintiffs' attorneys in the ?2,300,000 suit brought by Attorney F. A. Ontjes and 60 other stockholders in the Northwestern States Portland Cement company of West Virginia against Manford MacNicler and Mrs. May H. McNider as trustees, of the Charles H. McNider estate proceeded Tuesday to make a showing to the court that certain circumstances existed following the death of Mr. McNider in 1928 and justified the failure on the part of plaintiffs to file the claim against the estate within a year, of Mr. McNider's death. This procedure began Monday afternoon after Judge T. A. Beardmore sustained a defense motion to have the plaintiffs make this showing before allowing the case to be heard before a jury. The jury panel has been excused for the remainder of the court term, subject to call. Taken as Depositions. The bulk of the testimony during this hearing is in the form of voluminous depositions taken from tee plaintiff stockholders. at various times since the filing of the action by Mr. Ontjes in August, 1931. Under the law, claims against estates which are not properly filed within one year following the death of the decedent are outlawed under the statute of limitations, unless it is shown unusual circumstances prevented filing within the one year period. One of the allegations of the plaintiffs is that, during the time C. H. McNider was a trustee for the Northwestern States Portland Cement .company, he acquired for the company, as trustee, a ninth interest in the La Salle Portland Cement company, which, it is claimed, made a. 12 per cent net profit during the seven month period after this stock was acquired by C. H; McNider as trustee. Owned Third Interest. Then, the plaintiff's claim, in a meeting attended by C. H. McNider in his capacity of trustee for the Northwestern States Portland Cement company on Jan. 13, 1920, the Sandusky Cement company, which already owned a third Interest jn the La Salle company, offered to buy up the remaining two-thirds of the latter company. In a reciproca- tive proposition later consummated, however, "the plaintiffs claim that the Sandusky company sold its stock in the LaSalle company, McNider acquiring half of it, or one- third interest in the company, subsequently selling it at a large profit. Plaintiffs therefore allege that, inasmuch as McNider was at the time of this purchase and sale a trustee for the Northwestern States Portland Cement company, the transaction was effected as a result of its position and influence as trustee and involved the ninth interest in the LaSalle company, stock owned by the Northwestern States Portland Cement company but held in trust by him. It is claimed by the plaintiffs that the company had a right to this stock but received none of the profits from the transaction. In Alpha Company. In a further claim, the plaintiffs contend that McNider acquired a large interest in the Alpha Portland Cement company from Charles Boettcher, whose son was involved as a victim in the highly publicized Denver kidnaping case a few years ago. This purchase was made by McNider, the plaintiffs allege, to equalize his holdings in the Alpha company with those of Boettcher. It is further claimed that in making this equalization, the Northwestern States Portland Cement company's stock in the Alpha company, held in trust for the company by McNider but listed in McNider's name, was figured in as belonging to McNider. The remainder of the $2,300,000 sought is made up in gifts, donations and bonuses allegedly awarded to McNider by the Northwestern States Portland Cement company for his services as director and trustee. Built Original Mill.. The deposition of W. H. L. Me- Courtie, who, with W. F. Cowham built the original cement mill here which later became the Northwestern States Portland Cement company, was read in court Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. McCourtie was a director of the company here until 1929, during which year he was president. Tuesday, following the reading of more depositions, Mrs. Ruth Stockman Johnson, wife of a Fort Dodge attorney, was called to the stand for direct examination by Attorney Ontes. Mrs. Johnson was a former Mason City resident and has been a stockholder in the Northwestern States Portland Cement company for 30 years. Testimony and evidence introduced so far has indicated that the stockholders called upon as witnesses had no knowledge of the existence of any of the facts alleged by the plaintiffs until the time of the filing of the suit, in 1931, three years after C. H. McNider's death, it is upon this the plaintiffs base their allegation they have an equitable reason for coming into court with a claim despite the expiration of the statutory time of one year. I Federal Income Tax" DEDUCTIONS FOR OTHER EXPENSES NO. 30. NO. 29. Deductions fur losses other than from sale or exchange of capital losses. Deductions for losses are divided into four classes, and to be allowed must follow closely the wording of the income tax law. Losses are deductible if incurred (1) in the taxpayer's trade, business, or profession; (2) in any transaction entered into for profit; (3) from fires, storms, shipwreck or other casualties, or from theft; and (4) from wagering transactions. Business losses result, usually, from the purchase and sale of merchandise. Such losses usually are ascertained by means of inventories, which are required whenever in the opinion of the commissioner of internal revenue their use is. necessary to determine the income of any taxpayer. The term "transaction entered into for profit" means any kind of business proposition: For example, a taxpayer purchases an automobile to be used solely for business purposes, and which is sold at a loss. As this is a business proposition from start to finish, the loss is deductible. But if he had purchased the automobile to be used for pleasure or convenience, the deduction would not be allowed; it was not a transaction entered into for profit. A loss sustained in the theft of an automobile purchased for pleasure or convenience is deductible, as it falls in class 3. If, because of faulty driving but not of "willful negligence," an automobile maintained for pleasure is damaged, the taxpayer may claim the loss sustained, as'it comes within the meaning of the word "casualty." Where damages result from the faulty driving of an automobile with which the automobile of the taxpayer collides, the loss occasioned the taxpayer likewise is deductible. Losses from wagering transactions, whether legal or illegal, are deductible,, only to the extent of gains from such transactions. The excess of such losses over the gains is not deductible. All losses are deductible only to the extent to which they are not compensated for by insurance or otherwise. FIRST-AID WEEK BEING OBSERVED Local Druggists Promoting Movement of Safety in Home. The observance of first-aid week, with its life and limb saving mission, started Monday in Mason City under the sponsorship of eight local druggists. With observance being noted in the activities of schools, chambers of commerce, service clubs, boys' and girls' organizations and in the nation's 60,000 drug stores, this "week" takes its place alongside many other educational endeavors intended to promote public well-being, it was stated by the sponsors. Prepare for Emergency. The slogan, "Prepare f o r Emergency," states the specific purpose of this year's activity. The need for first-aid information and materials in the home is dramatically pointed out by John W. Dargavel, secretary of the National Association of Retail Drug-gists, who says: "The popular conception that the home is a haven of safety and refuge is false. Last year more than 80.000 persons lost their lives in homes through accidentsand infections following accidents. Home accident deaths are increasing each year, while loss of life in the industries, which are well equipped to give first aid treatments, is steadily decreasing. To Prevent Suffering. "It is the aim and hope of everyone interested in public welfare that first-aid week this year will contribute some little bit at least to the prevention of suffering and the saving of life." Mason City druggists sponsorin, the event are: Adams Drug company, 102 North Federal avenue. Casey Drug company, 335 South Federal avenue. - Ford-Hopkins Drug store, 13 North Federal avenue. Huxtable Drug company, 116 South Federal avenue. Walgreen Drag store, 103 North Federal avenue. Michael Drug company, 5 South Federal avenue. Weed's pharmacy, 403 North Fed- era.1 avenue. WATER REPORTED RISING WITH ICE STILL IN RIVERS No Danger Yet, Say Officers, But It's Going Up an Inch an Hour. Although the past mild weather has been unable to break up the ice in Willow creek or the Winnebago river through Mason City, water was reported running over the surface of the ice Tuissu*y afternoon. About three feet of water was reported running over the surface of the- ice in Willow creek but it was still within its banks except for a low place in Wildwood. No danger of flood here was reported Tuesday, however, after a check by Fire Chief Dan Shire, Chief of Police Harold Wolfe and other officials of the city who made a tour of places situated where floods have in the past caused damage. Since 11 o'clock Monday morning the water running over ice in the Winnebago river had risen 8 inches by 11 o'clock Tuesday morning and was reported as rising at the rate of an inch an hour Tuesday afternoon. The gradual thawing and freezing has held back surface water in small ponds and pools in many places and kept it from rushing directly to the streams. 200 CHICKENS KILLED IN FIRE Overheated Stove in Brooder House Believed Cause of Blaze. More than 200 young chickens were killed in a fire which broke out in a one story brick and mill brooder house owned by Roy L. Meier, 742 Twelfth street northeast, about 6:20 o'clock Tuesday morning. An overheated brooder stove was the cause of the fire. Two booster lines and a line of 1V« inch hose were used. Firemen worked at the fire for one hour and 13 minutes.
