Drainage District Tax Hearing is Postponed A hearing before Zal B. Harrison, county judge, on exceptions of E. N. Ahlfeldt, receiver for a number of drainage flistricts In the Osceola district of the county to the settlement of W. W. Shave-former Mississippi county sheriff and collector, has been indefinitely postponed. The postponement was effected in order ihat negotiations looking toward a compromise could be con- tmucd, it is understood. Tlie exceptions, filed in July alleged that Shaver while sheruf and collector collected drainage district taxes to the amount of J5.400 for which he failed to account to either the county treasurer or the drainage districts The amount represents money tied'up in two defunct Qsceola banking institutions. An order of the county court relieved Shaver from personal responsibility and allowed him to assign funds in the closed banks to the various district and accounts lie owed.
