NOTICES SERVED The Chapman and Tyler- Ryan furniture stores were served with notices Monday afternoon, stating they were to become defendants In a 510,000 damage action to be filed In the office of the clerk. The notices stated the^ action was being brot by Mlcr Wolf and Sons thru Attorney R. F. Clough for alleged slander. The contention is made that the Chaoman and Tyler-Ryan stores subjected the Wolf company t o ' t h e humllia- ., tion of being charged with the crimo of engaging in a lottery and of standing trial on that charge. An action charging Mier Wolf and Sons with engaging in a lottery by the distribution of tickets as chances on an automobile was dismissed by Justice M. C. Coughlon Monday morning,, following a hearing thai opened Saturday afternoon. Facts in the case were presented Saturday afternoon, chiefly by the testimony of Sheriff G. E. Cress who said he had talked with the officers of the Wolf company, and by stipulation. County Attorney Roe Thompson prosecuted, the case, while R. F. Clough was attorney for tho defendant company, which was represented at the hearing by George Wolf. It was brot out in the testimony and stipulation that a ticket chance on the automobile was given with every $1 purchase and for every $1 paid on past due accounts. Evidence was also presented that tickets were given free without obligation to buy or to pay on account. Case Is Argued. Arguments on the case were presented Monday morning by Mr. Clough and the county attorney. Aa Iowa court had not ruled on the question of lottery, the attorneys cited cases from other states. In all cases the courts held that three essentials were necessary for lottery: One, consideration; two,-'the element of chance and three, a prize. The question in the Mason City case was the matter of consideration. Mr. Clough cited cases showing that instances of this character in which chances were given on purchases or payments on accounts were not held as lottery for tho reason there was no consideration. His contention was that as purchasers paid no more for the goods or did.not stand a chance to lose in the drawing the Wolf matter was not lottery under the law. . ; ._.. Held as Lottery...;..· ing the opposite'conclusion of courts, in/which purchase of goods for .tickets were held -as constituting lottery.. He argued that there wal- consideration in that the purchaser was induced to pay up .his account or to make a purchase at a particular time. He cited rulings showing that even the fact that some tickets were given free did not change tha situation. In answer to this Mr. Clough argued that while the Iowa courts have not held directly on the matter of lottery that'in decisions on other matters there was a trend* to hold with the other decisions ho had cited: That there was no consideration with a mere purchase of goods. "It is a piece of metaphysical foolishness to consider the payment of past due accounts as consideration," Mr. Clough declared. Case' Is Dismissed. Justice Coughlon was prone to accept the view. immediately that there was no lottery in the payment on past due accounts or in the giving away of tickets to anyone coming into the store. After some deliberation on the question of whetU- er giving tickets with purchases constituted consideration and therefore lottery, the justice held that the weight of the decisions, the trend of Iowa rulings and the character nf the situation was with the defendant and with that dismissed the action. Local officers stated the action was instituted at the request of Attorney General John Fletcher. Sheriff Cress signed the information, following an order from the attorney general.

A large manhole has been constructed in the storm sewer at the southwest corner of Central park and the manhole connected with the water mains for tho purpose of disposing of snow, according to P. F. Hopkins, city manager. The work has been done by the street department. The sewer should be able to dispose of the snow for about a block in each direction and two men with scrapers should be able to handle a considerable quantity' of snow, Mr. Hopkins said and added that if the plan proves successful it will be extended to other sections where storm sewers are available. Altho the water required to flush the snow thru the sewer to the creek will cost something, the system / should prove economical, Mr. Hopkins said. The storm sewer built runs south to Second street and then west to connect with on old sewer which runs to the creek. About two and one-half blocks of new sewer has been built. A real trial of the new device will probably not be possible until next winter because of the lack of snow, Mr. Hopkins explained.
