Val More Than $155,000 LiTohed in the Controrersj Much of Which Is Due From Cuss County Farmers In March, 1891, a number of the citizens of Harrison and Boooe town ships, Cass county, filed with the board of commissioners their petition asking for an order directing the con strructlon of a ditch lo cass anfl White counties under what is known as the Five Mile act. The commis sioners granted the requestor thepe titloners, and in conjunction with the commissioners of White county proceeded to establish and causa the construction ot the ditch. This ac provides that tbe counties through which the ditch is constructed may issue bonds running for ten years.the proceeds of which shall be used in defraying the expenses incident to the construction of the ditch. These bonds are to be liquidated by assessments on the lands benefited by the ditch. The contract for the ditch was let and it was finally completed In 1893. The bonds were issued by the two counties and sold to different parties, and the proceeds applied a: required by the statute. After the construction of the ditch and on the 28th day of November, 1894, George Plottner and several other land own ers along the line of the ditch con ceived the idea that their lands were not liable for assessment; the basis 01 this claim being that Section 15 of tbe act under which the ditch was constructed was unconstitutional and void, and on that day Frank M. Kistler and M. Winfield as their attorneys filed their complaints in the Cass Circuit court against the board of commissioners of Cass county, for the purpose of quieting the title to their land and thus avoid the payment of these assessments. The cause was first tried before the Hon. D. B. McDonnell, who found against the plaintiff and in favor of the board of commissioners, and a judgment was rendered accordingly. Upon this judgment, Plottner took a new trial as a matter of right and the venue was changed to Pulaski county, where the case was again tried by Judge Capron, who found for the plaintiff, George Plottaer, and rendered a judgment in his favor quieting his title to his land 'against the board of commissioners. From this judgment the board of commissioner. of Cass county appealed to the Supreme court, Nelson £ Myers and McConnell & Jenkines appearing for the county, and on December 10th, of this year, the Supreme court handed dowu its opinion reversing the judgment of the court below. The ditch was several miles long and was completed and $17.000 worth of bonds issued and sold before Plottner began his suit. The court refuses to consider the validity of section 15 of the ditch law, which was attacked bv the counsel for Plottner, holding that it would be a fraud on the purchasers of the bonds to cancel the assessments against his land and that the court will not lend Its aid to perpetuate a fraud, The result of this suit will probably dispose of a number of other cases now pending in the Pulaski circuit court, involving the same question. The holding of the supreme court In this cause practically determines the validity of something near 1155,000 of bonds Issued in .the Sheets ditch, the Kennell ditch and other ditches, constructed under the same act In this and White counties.
