A. A. McLaughlin, Des Moinca at- orney who with Atty. Earl Smith, iason City, is defending the C. H. tlcNidcr estate in the suit brought gainst it by 61 of the stockholders . the Northwestern States Portland dement company, completed his rgument to Judge T. A. Beardmore n district court here Tuesday after- oon, following summations by Den. is Kelleher, Fort Dodge, and F. A. Dntjes, plaintiffs' attorneys, Monay afternoon and Tuesday morn- ng. Mr. Ontjes was the first or the our lawyers for the plaintiffs to irgue their side of the case. He vas followed by Mr. Kellcher, who oncluded his talk Tuesday morning. 3en Hunter, Los Angeles, Cal., and Wesley Henke, Charles City, other laintiff counsels, will give the clos- ng arguments. Based on Alleged Violations. The claim against the estate Is 'ased upon alleged violations by Mr. McNider of his fiduciary relation- ihip to the stockholders as a rustee and director in the cement "ompany, and upon alleged concealment of stock transations. In opening his argument for the defense, Mr. McLaughlin said, "we lave been treated to an example of how a successful businessman and public spirited citizen can be charged with malfeasance of duty after his death when he can no onger speak in his defense." Traces Company's History. Tracing the history of the cement company, Mr. McLaughiin pointed out that the corporation rose from a concern deeply in debt at the time Mr. McNider became president and ;en.eral manager in 1911, to a 'splendid institution of excellent earning power at the time of his death." The evidence showed. Mr. McLaughlin stated, that Mr. McNider was acting for himself in the purchase of the LaSalle Cement company stock which he later offered to the company. "Much of the testimony presented by the other side has been an attempted distortion and the placing of wrong in references upon honest and above board transactions," he declared. Could Take or Leave. Testimony showed, according to the defense lawyer, that the members of the board of directors were told by Mr. McNider, and derstood from him, that he had purchased the La Salle Cement company stock for the company, but the directors could vote to take it or leave it." Thus, Mr. McLaughlin continued, Mr. McNider brought the company and the stockholders an investment which he was under no obligation to turn over to them, and the benefits realized by the company and stockholders from this venture amounted to more than 5500,000 more than the purchase pi-ice at which the company bought the stock from Mr. McNider. It was in consideration of these profits that the directors awarded Mr. McNider certain bonuses and gifts, which the plaintiffs charge were wrongfully given, Mr. Laughlin said. Ontjes Argues. Speaking for the plaintiffs, Mr. Ontjes reviewed the history · of the La Salle Cement company stock purchase by the Northwestern States company was in Mr. McNider's name, and was thought by the other parties in the venture to belong to him. he took advantage of this situation and acquired other stock which properly should have gone to the Northwestern States company. Mr. Kellcher cited decisions parallel cases, including a New York ruling handed down by Judge Benjamin F. Cardozo, now one of the United States supreme court justices. In this decision, Judge Cardozo held that a fiduciary is barred from dealing in any way with persona' opportunity which arises through his position as fiduciary, Mr. Kelleher read from the ruling. Allege Violation. He then contended that Mr. McNider was shown by the evidence to have made a direct violation of this rule in stock transactions in which he allegedly used all the stock in his name in the La Salle company including both his own holdings and those of the Northwestern States company. Then, referring more particularly to the issue at trial. Mr. Kellcher stated that, if the plaintiff did not know of the existence of the basis for a claim against an estate soon enough to file said claim within the one year following the death of the decedent as allowed by the statute of limitations, the very fact of this non-knowledge was- held to be sufficient showing in cases which he cited. The hearing is on the sustaining of a defense motion to make the plaintiffs show that circumstances sufficiently peculiar existed during the year allowed by the statute to justify late filing of the claim. Even Dogs Have Taxes to Scratch Up April Whiskered Mongrels Find Friend With Pocket. April 1 is the time of year when a feller needs a friend, even it one leads a dog's life. Many a dog is worrying right now about who is going to pay his taxes--for even the dogs have their taxes--and licenses. Whether the name is Skippy or Brownie, Miltzie or Tarzan, Hoi- man or Bulls Eye, or even Rags or plain Bow Wow, they all have the same price to pay--$3 for a city license to be allowed to run at large. Must Have a Master. But dogs of all shapes and varieties, · including the mongrel pack that boasts no ancestral lineage, have come to realize they are better off and safe from the dog catcher's pound if they have a master in a young boy Or girl. For in Mason City there resides a friend of children and their dogs. Each year this friend purchases the license plates required for the pets of children who are unable to pay the license fee. The identity of this benevolent donor remains a secret, but no matter how many dogs are brought in, the funds are ready for the license. 204 Plates Purchased. Last year 204 permits were pur 1 chased- Some of the dogs registered were 11 years of age, with no doubt a few of these years added to the age by the generosity of the dog owners' big friend. But whether the owners know the ages of the dogs, vhere they came from, or what they are, as long as a boy or girl claims it as his or her dog (and iasn"t the money to purchase a license) the big friend will come to the rescue. This friend works through the Globe-Gazette and the requirement asked is that the letter from the child must have parent and one from the child's teacher. The letter :rom the parent must have the father's and mother's names signed and state where the father is employed. The purchase of the plates will be handled through the Humane society, which will give the children pamphlets on the care of dogs when they receive their license plates.
