Pl.l'.n WITH MILLION'S. DEI.PJII, Ind., March 2~i.— A littL over one year ago Abner H. Bowen died at his home in this city, leaving 1 ; fortune, mostly in personal property of 85,000,000. He had scarcely been buried when the officials of the county moved on his estate to collec' back taxes on property that hac been hidden from the assessors, and theories of rows it raised woulc fill a large book. The elder Bowen, although possessed of millions, listed foi taxes only a few thousands, but so pi-cat was his power that no man made a move during his lifetime to compe! him to pay taxes on all the property he owned. The Bowen heirs failec to agree among themselves upon an administrator and the court appointed the county treasurer, under the statute, to act in that capacity. The heirs fought his appointment as "being inimical to the -interests of the estate and took the matter to the supreme court, but the higher court decided against them. The heirs kept up the fight until Wednesday afternoon, when the attorneys for the county filed a statement with the auditor asking that personal property to the value of over 52,000,000, be placed upon the tax duplicate against the estate of Abner H. Bowen. This demoralized them. They secretly commenced to pack up their possessions. Trunks, valises, sachels and boxes were brought into requisition, and in them were stored notes, mortgages, bonds and stocks. With these in their possession the heirs departed on the midnight train and now the widow is in' Urbana, 111,, Edward Bowen is in Chicago, while A. T. Bowen and Etta Bowen are on their way to Philadelphia. All have given up their residence in Indiana except Nathaniel Bowen, who retains the real estate. It is estimated that the value of the property carried away is in the neighborhood of 82,090,000. When the 'announcement of the retreat of the heirs >was made Thtirs- day morning no one appeared more surprised than their attorneys, who declared that they had not received a .hint of the intended flight of their clients. Two reasons are given for the sensational move of the Bowen heirs. They desired to get their possessions out of the state before the assessor came around next month to list property under the new law, and they also figure on having the tax suits transferred to the United States court on the ground that they are non-residents. The bank in this city owned and operated by the family is in the hands of an assistant cashier and is meeting all obligations,,many depositors having withdrawn their money Thursday.
